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! ♥

Uncharted Waters 💕

By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders

An ocean tumbles through dreams of you. In depths unknown, I float above.

Oh, how I long to dive beneath your surface, yet I am timid in matters of love.

If brave, I’d have shown you the whole of my gushing heart, no less than tides of bliss.

Searching your eyes, I want for treasures lost on the ocean’s floor.

The sun, like a gold coin, drops, splashing this face of regret.

I blush in secret thoughts of you and turn away from the endless shore.

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.

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
