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.

Sun in Capricorn + Winter Solstice; Dec. 21st, 2016 ❄☀♑

Our guiding light begins its climb from darkness into light on December 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. At this very mystical time, the Sun seems to stand still at the Tropic of Capricorn, then reverses its direction as it reaches its southernmost declination of -23.5 degrees, giving just 7 hours and 49 minutes of daylight. The dark triumphs but only briefly. Today, Light is reborn.

“This time of year is associated with light — string lights, sparklers and of course, candles. The timeless traditions during the dark season are thought to be an attempt to balance out the sunless gloom of winter. The lights are reminders of our inner light, and hope for the return of sunny days.”Molly Hall

Venus in Aquarius; Dec. 7, 2016 – Jan. 3, 2017 💜☮♒

“Love her but leave her wild.” ― Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Venus, the planet of love and pleasure visits the free-spirited sign of Aquarius on December 7th, 2016. We now move towards novelty, independence and freedom as themes in our interpersonal relationships. The Aquarian motto is take me as I am, and rebels against those that set out to tame them.

This renegade Venusian vibe makes unlikely connections fun, without a lot of pressure. Lines between friendship and intimacy become blurred. Crushes and electric attractions happen easily…but love and devotion in this aloof and detached sign can be a bit more tricky and may even feel a bit claustrophobic around clingy or overly emotional types.

During this time many of us will have zero tolerance for friends, partners or family members who are possessive, manipulative or try to dictate our lives. This liberated Venus is completely turned off by power trips, games, or double standards. Giving loved ones more space and room to move is a must for this Venus transit.

Venus in Sagittarius; Oct. 18 – Nov. 11, 2016 ♐

Coming out of the cleansing waters of Scorpio, loving Venus moves into the idealistic fire sign of Sagittarius, adding fuel to Cupid’s fire and ensuring passion and excitement!

Venus in Scorpio vibes were pretty intense and may have exposed buried greed, envy and jealousy. Now, in the sign of the Archer, Venus is uplifted! Romantic energy shifts from dark and probing to light and breezy.

Often seen as the unobtainable fantasy, Venus in Sagittarius is an eternal seeker. Personal freedom is paramount. Soul-level declarations of undying love is lost in this Venusian atmosphere, as well as heavy, over-analyzed relationship issues or emotional drama. Care-free, wild, uncomplicated types is what attracts this Venus.

Although attraction happens very easily under this Venusian climate, this brings forth a feeling of restlessness. Something (or someone) fascinating, exotic, or new is just around the corner, waiting to be explored. As fast as the flame is lit, it can burn out just as quickly.

“His hands are saying that he wants to hold her. His feet are saying that he wants to chase after her… He’s probably forgotten that I’m here, beside him.” – Ai Yazawa
