Magnetic Attraction

Synastry…what could be more fascinating?! Check out this great article by Maria DeSimone! xx

Astrologically, there are a few clear indicators to help you understand why one person has the power to give you an immediate rush while someone else leaves you feeling flat. Explore what your planets might say of your latest crush.

Sun-Moon

This is the classic indicator not only for attraction, but for compatibility. When you share a Sun-Moon tie with someone there’s an instant rapport that just can’t be beat. One’s essence (Sun) is embraced and understood intuitively (Moon). The Moon person can count on the Sun person and this pair will easily “get” each other. When this combination is found along with one of the sexier indicators of chemistry, it’ll likely be a love match that’s hard to beat.

Venus-Mars

This is by far the most famous inter-aspect for attraction. The planet of love (Venus) meets up with the planet of desire (Mars) and voila — you’ve got chemistry! There is a magnetic force that seems to pull the two of you together when you share this link. This is the kind of connection that makes your knees go weak when your special someone kisses you.

Sun-Mars (or, if someone’s Mars falls in your 5th House of Creativity)

When the Sun and Mars are linked, passion is fortified! The Sun person feels energized in this relationship and his or her sex drive is immediately aroused in the presence of the Mars person. Mars feels prompted to pursue the Sun person in an assertive way. The thrill of the chase is intoxicating with this connection!

Lunar Eclipse + Full Moon in Aquarius; Aug. 7th, 2017 ❂☍♒

 

A late summer Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse electrifies the skies on Monday, August 7th at 2:10 PM ET in Aquarius, the sign of the visionary. Lunar eclipses are famous for illuminating hidden agendas, stashed worries, secret crushes or buried fears that continues to hold us hostage.

“One of The Waterbearer’s symbols is the lightning bolt. Concentrated celestial light descending from the heavens to Earth. Uranus, one of the rulers of Aquarius, is The Awakener. This Aquarian state of consciousness allows us to transcend the limitations of the physical world. From this enlightened perspective, the mind can experience and explore creation.” -Robert Ayres

Some Full Moon in Aquarius themes and suggestions:

  • Bust out of what you think you know — be open to mind blowing shifts in perspective
  • Embrace the glorious, outrageous, unique you
  • Be a voice for the voiceless
  • Paint, draw, pull visions and epiphanies from sources out of this world
  • Develop a privacy barrier in your virtual life

 

Not everyone will feel the effects of this Leo – Aquarius Full Moon with the same intensity. If your birthday falls within four days of February 5th –  you may see a long awaited breakthrough. Think about what changes you’ve been putting off, the healing you’ve needed..the release that is calling out.

If you have a powerful message to share, the eclipse can carry it much farther than you expect. After this month, you may begin to see yourself in a new light, and possibly change your style to reflect the dramatic changes going on within you. The same applies to you if you have a planet or point at 15 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Sun, Mars & New Moon in Leo ♌

“Be the flame, not the moth.”
― Giacomo Casanova

An energizing New Moon occurs on July 23rd at 4:33 am EDT, when the Sun and Moon unite in the realm of the Sun King. This fierce AF lunation is for growing our personal power. Leo inspires playing, loving, and creating – its influence encourages us show off who we are to the max.

This New Moon’s conjunction with warrior Mars helps us to ignite that inner flame that sometimes gets dimmed by life’s daily grind. As this fortunate new cycle unfolds, we will feel emotionally stronger (after the inner turmoil Cancer season tends to stir up) and more determined to committing to our goals. But, with this much fire in the heavens, we must find healthy outlets to channel these energies before getting impatient, impulsive or aggressive.

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Does your birthday fall between July 23rd-28th? Do you have a natal planet or point in Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at 1 degree, plus or minus four degrees? If so, this is a very powerful time! You have two New Moons in a row, and one of them happens to be the August 21st Solar Eclipse!

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bill Keane

Use this brilliant Leo New Moon to set intentions that re-energize your inner muse. What are you passionate about besides Game of Thrones? (✿◠‿◠)

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small.

May all your wishes come true! xx

Full Moon in Capricorn; July 9, 2017❂♑

A Full Moon in Capricorn occurs on Sunday, July 9th, 2017, at 12:07 AM ET when the sensitive Cancer Sun opposes the cool Capricorn Moon. This cosmic illumination is about the balance between sweet success and material rewards vs. the comfort of home and family. Both signs ultimately seek security, yet reach for it in very different ways. This is an invitation to look reality in the eye as we reset our priorities.

“The reason this 24-hour time-period stands out is that there is not only a very powerful and potentially enlightening Full Moon  – energizing 18 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn – but intense, formidable and secretive Pluto unites with the Moon and is therefore a part of the entire Full Moon vibration. There is so much more going on now in the subterranean regions of the human kingdom than there was in February 1930, when distant Pluto was discovered at 18 degrees of Cancer. Thus, this Full Moon – while a possible source of amazing illumination in so many ways – can drag many souls down into murky recesses of deep-seated feelings, repressed emotions, and even so-called past-life memories. Wisdom dictates that being an ambassador of love and light to our fellow travelers on board Spaceship Earth is the way to travel.” -Mark Lerner

Venus in Gemini; July 4 – July 31, 2017♀♊

New Moon in Cancer; June 23rd, 2017 ☾ ♋

Intense currents are flowing toward us as the Sun and Moon align in the first water sign of the Zodiac on June 23rd, 2017, at 10:31 PM EDT. This magical New Moon is a time to soften defenses and dive into the dimensions of our soul.

These are perfect days and nights to identify what disturbs our emotional health as we reflect on our past, our conditioning and our instinctual responses for essential feedback.

“Halting your progress before the Sun-Moon rendezvous are Mercury making a caustic, 45-degree link to Vesta (12:27AM), the monthly Moon in Gemini opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius (5:32AM), a void lunar cycle in Gemini starting at 11:46AM and ending when the Moon enters Cancer (3:08PM). Rocking the boat with dear ones as Mars and Juno joust in the heavens is a no-no. Let go of as many old problems as possible to allow the New Moon vibrations to reinforce love, understanding, and goodwill within your extended family circle.” -Mark Lerner

We may experience a longing for closeness with those that we’re at home with and trust to share our true feelings. Emotional exhaustion, a need to retreat, and moodiness are also symptoms of Cancer Moonbeams.

During these sacred moments, proceed with extra sensitivity and expressions of thoughtfulness. Find healthy outlets to nourish and regenerate your soul. Consider how you self-soothe. Know that you deserve the best.

To clarify how this New Moon in Cancer will impact you on a personal level, locate 3° Cancer in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If you have a planet or point from 0° to 7° of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, this New Moon will speak to you directly.

It’s important to be internally clear and meaningful about what we want now. Send your requests out in a wish or a prayer. Focus on where you’re going and make peace with the past. Your idea under this loving New Moon could bloom when the Cancer Full Moon rolls around. xx
