New Moon in Scorpio; Nov. 18, 2017 ♏

New Moon occurs on Saturday, November 18th, 2017, at 6:42 AM ET in the mysterious realm of Scorpio. This energetic doorway invites us to probe into our innermost universe; to rummage around, find the secrets, the lies, and soul-centered desires.

“The fear of the unknown is what keeps most people stuck in a cycle. Instead of giving yourself a sunny pep talk, embrace what’s coming up. Explore your worries and shine a light on those monsters under the bed. By acknowledging what’s buried you can embark on a journey that’s not just successful, but also amazingly nourishing to your soul.” -Astrotwins

This phase of the Moon occurs at 26 degrees and 19 minutes of Scorpio. If your birthday falls within five days of this New Moon in Scorpio this is a powerful opportunity for transformation. The same is true if you have personal planets or points at 22 – 30 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Venus in Scorpio; Nov. 7th – Dec. 1st, 2017 ♀💕♏

 

Venus, our planet of Love, slithers through mysterious Scorpio from November 7th to December 1st, 2017. While Venus in Libra was all about making relationships peaceful and balanced without ruffling any feathers — Venus in Scorpio takes us beyond the superficial to encounters of bare naked honesty…

“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.” ― Margaret Atwood

This Venus wants love seductively, privately, deeply, completely, but her game of seduction occurs subtly. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and know that passion is usually intensified when it is restrained or suppressed. Grand overtures and declarations are major turn-offs. Passion is silent but eyes and body language speak volumes.

Relationships, romantic ones especially, will feel the heat in more ways than one…Venus here can be extremely suspicious of others, almost expecting betrayal and lies. Yup, paranoid.

This intense Water Sign is capable of hating with the same level of passion as they once loved if you’ve crossed their invisible line. The scorpion sting is no fable. Jealousy, power plays, hidden agendas and possessiveness can also be the shadow side to this Venus atmosphere.

Jupiter in Scorpio; Oct. 10, 2017 – Nov. 8, 2018

“At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Starting today, benevolent Jupiter takes up residence in magnetic Scorpio until November 8th, 2018. After a thirteen-month transit of Libra, Jupiter’s lucky, larger-than-life presence will be working powerfully on the themes associated with the eighth sign of the Zodiac.

Venus in Virgo; Sept. 19 – Oct. 14, 2017 ♍❥

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
― Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband

Love planet Venus moves from playful Leo into virtuous Virgo today! Venus shows a reflection of our desires and in contrast to Venus‘ flashy transit in Leo, the mood lighting for love in Earth Sign Virgo is sensual but more subdued, or inhibited.

All matters that are Venus-ruled are not easily expressed in this practical realm. Virgos are more about taking care of business and are known to be detached or emotionally distant at times, with a natural reserve and a sense of purity.

Full Moon in Pisces; September 6th, 2017 ♓

 

The moment of maximum splendor occurs at 3:03 AM ET on Wednesday when the virtuous Virgo Sun opposes the ethereal Pisces Moon. Virgo and Pisces are signs of devotion and magic, from the worldly to the otherworldly.

The illusory world of dreams, shadows, and secrets is as valid to the Piscean as the reality of this one, sometimes even more so. This gentle Moon is a window of opportunity to dive deeply within, to release feelings of guilt and emotional poisons. Any damage incurred around the eclipses can be healed and cleansed now.

“Conflicting cosmic messages are strong during this Full Moon, as the detail-oriented Virgo Sun focuses our thoughts while the Pisces Moon joins nebulous Neptune to soften our resolve. Our fuzzy thinking inspires us to imagine alternatives that previously seemed impossible. Luckily, action-hero Mars and clever Mercury are harmoniously trine to electric Uranus at the time of the Full Moon, shocking us into awareness. Intelligence is poised to overcome ignorance. Change is not only possible, it’s inevitable — and it’s going to happen fast!” -Rick Levine

The Piscean/Neptunian vibration comes from a place of acceptance, faith and humility, but it can also be fearful and confusing. It’s common for Pisceans to be attracted to fantasy in an attempt to escape the gritty reality of this world.

It will be helpful to find an outlet to channel this dreamy, emotional energy. Art, music, poetry and dance — non-verbal forms of communication are especially healing during this time. Spend some time with your muse.

“If you tend toward the extremely sensitive side of the spectrum anyway, you’ll want to watch your boundaries to guard against the ‘energetic sponge’ phenomenon, should you encounter negative people or toxic behavior.” – Amanda Painter

If you’re birthday falls within five days of March 5th, this magical Full Moon in Pisces will be speaking to you directly. The same is true if you have a natal planet or point within five degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces at 14 degrees. Find this degree along the Virgo-Pisces axis to spiral in to the themes that could be up for you here.

Sun in Aries + Spring Equinox; March 20, 2017 🍃♈

Welcome back, Persephone!

The Sun blazes into fiery Aries on March 20th, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!

Today, Light and Dark exist in sacred balance. After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st, when the pattern will reverse.

“And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days …”
― Onitsura

As we shift out of the soft, ethereal energy of Pisces, and into the fearless, action realm of Aries, we’re likely to be seeking out things that are new, fun and different.

We now have an excess of Fire energy. At this time, we can become more impulsive, direct and uncomplicated in our needs, but the tendency to be a bit of an asshole short-sighted and selfish is highly possible.

As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries’ main concern is for number one…it’s all about me, myself and I –“Let’s talk about me!” “Remember me?” “Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about me!”

More Aries Particulars

  • Element is Fire (inspired and instinctual).
  • Quality is Cardinal (instigating).
  • Aries is Masculine (outgoing, penetrating).
  • Ruler is Mars.
  • Phrase is “I am.”
  • Birthstone is diamond, created from intense heat and pressure.
  • Body Association: Face, eyes, and head.
  • Season is Spring.
  • Colors are the red shades; scarlet, fire-engine, ruby.
  • Rules metallic Iron.

It’s time to shake off the same ol’ dull routines and consider the many fresh possibilities before us with the renewed energy of Spring and the bold, bright Aries Sun! Just wait until the New Moon on March 27th to launch!

Happy Astrological New Year, AND, Happy Solar Return, Aries! ♥

Venus in Pisces; Jan. 3 – Feb. 3, 2017 💙♀♓

An escape into beauty and fantasy arrives today, as Venus enters the mystical realm of Pisces. Our approach to love is impacted by whatever sign Venus happens to be in, and romance doesn’t get much more enchanting than when Venus is in the sensitive Water sign of Pisces.

Empathy, tolerance and understanding are among the highest expressions of Piscean/Neptunian energy. The most sublime creative potential is available to us during the next four weeks. The ecstasy of self-expression through poetry, photography, or other form of art is enhanced.

“This fantasy-fueled phase will be doubly strong since Venus’ co-pilot Mars is also in Pisces until January 28. Early Valentine’s Day anyone? Cupid could wing in on an earlier flight in 2017—and January is the month to surrender to his charms and get swept away.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Pisces allows us to experience the free-flowing nature of romance with less hesitation or expectation. This is the placement where we yearn for a deep soul mate connection. We may long for whatever we value in the depths of our being, whether that is forbidden love, forgiveness or compassion. However, under these dreamy stars we might lower our defenses a little too much…or too soon.
