“Ô, Wanderess, Wanderess
When did you feel your 
most euphoric kiss? 
Was I the source 
of your greatest bliss?” 
-Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Venus, our planet of sugar, spice and everything nice moves into playful Gemini for the next four weeks! The path to pleasure in the realm of the Twins begins with words, as we tend to bond more readily on a mental level.

Venus in Taurus + Full Moon in Libra; March 31, 2018 ☾♎❤♉

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Lord Tennyson

Desire blooms as the planet of romance, sugar-sugar and all things lovely comes home to Taurus today. Venus now turns to the material world on a quest for what soothes, teases and beautifies. As one of Venus’ ruled signs, Taurus embodies the essence of our sweet, sensuous planet.

“At 8:38 AM EDT, the Moon in Libra reaches full. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability. The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Sun, however, values authenticity over tact and is energized by independent efforts. This morning’s Full Moon illuminates this conflict. Because it aligns with retrograde Mercury and forms a square to Mars and Saturn, feelings can be frustrated now, and we might struggle with expressing ourselves, particularly since we’re also especially aware of our commitments and obligations and we can be guarded.” -Annie Heese

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius + Lunar New Year ♒

 

A New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse occurs today at 4:06 PM EST in the sign of Aquarius. Today also kicks off a New Lunar Year! It’s time to wave goodbye to the Year of the Fire Cock Rooster and say hello to the Year of the Earth Dog — which will reign until February 4th, 2019.

 “2018 comes with a warning label: Don’t mess with the bitches! The Dog is associated with Western astrology’s Libra, the sign of equality and justice. The age-old, imbalanced power dynamics between men and women will continue to raise hackles in 2018. Domineering types who use their stature to intimidate, control and abuse the pack could be locked out of the doghouse. Dog years can be stabilizing for relationships, as the association with marriage-minded Libra will put folks in a mate-for-life mindset. Heavy petting, anyone? “I need more affection” may be a common cry in 2018. Couples should slow down and reconnect through touch. Single? You could find love through a pack-mate’s introduction, so don’t skip out on the group hangs. Tinder and dating apps could take a backseat to IRL meetups. During Dog years, body language and chemistry (yep, those pheromones are real) are the true litmus test—and can’t be sensed on screen.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Aquarius; Jan. 17 – Feb. 10th, 2018 💜☮♒

Venus, the planet of love and pleasure prances into the free-spirited sign of Aquarius  for a cozy stay until February 10th. Since Christmas day, Venus has been in cautious Capricorn, infusing a serious vibe to our relationships. We now move towards independence, freedom and unconventionality.

This renegade Venus 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.

Full Moon in Gemini; December 3, 2017 ♊


A cosmic pull occurs on Sunday, December 3rd at 10:47 AM ET between the Moon in Gemini, the realm of vivid mental curiosity and the Sun in Sagittarius, the seeker of universal and personal truth.

“The cosmic noise factor is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde the same day, leaving everyone a bit dazed and confused for the next three weeks. Also during this Full Moon, a blurry Moon-Neptune square plus a fuzzy Jupiter-Neptune trine magnify dreams, adding a wide-angle distortion filter to the picture; it’s almost impossible to see the truth even when it is staring back at you. This is a metaphysical showdown — facts vs. beliefs, spiritual vs. superficial, and clarity vs. illusion. Dancing with a myriad of dualities can be an entertaining and enlightening experience if emotional flexibility, mental agility, and a swift wit are always within reach.” -Rick Levine

Venus in Libra; Oct. 14 – Nov. 7, 2017 ♀💚♎

“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.” ― Elynor Glynn

Love is in the air as Venus moves into lovely Libra for a three-week stay! Air Sign Libra seeks love and beauty in all its forms —music, art, fashion, fresh flowers, jewels…but also kindness, integrity and compassion.

Every planet has its comfort zone and Libra’s wonderful combination of the sensualist and the intellectual allows the very best of Venusian energy to shine through.

Whether single or dating, Venus in witty Libra will color our love lives and interpersonal relationships with charm, flexibility and eloquence, but it isn’t necessarily the most reliable…

Relationships are of paramount importance to Libra, but it’s more about the idea of being in coupled-up bliss. Much like the scales they represent, they’re always going back and forth wondering, “Could I do better? Is this as good as it gets?! 

“Imbalanced relationships will stick out like a sore thumb during this transit. Does one of you have stronger feelings than the other? Is one of you putting more work into the partnership than the other? If so, it’ll become very noticeable while Venus is in Libra. Thankfully, this transit also blesses us with the cooperation and grace to work together to make positive changes and start anew.” -Maria Desimone

To personalize this energy, identify which house is ruled by Libra in your birth chart. Where is your Venus placed? What’s your vision of love?

Let’s use this loving Venus in Libra energy to pamper ourselves and make others feel extra special…not just in obvious ways, but all the little thoughtful ways that make life a bit sweeter. xx

Venus in Taurus + Mercury in Gemini; June 6th, 2017

Seismic shifts shake our lives as two planets change signs today!  Venus enters her sensual home sign of Taurus and Mercury follows suit by entering its airy home sign of Gemini. My natal Venus is in Taurus and my natal Mercury falls in Gemini, sooo I plan on taking full advantage of these cosmic treats! xx  (•◡•) 

Via Astrotwins;

“Amorous Venus breaks ground in tender, tactile Taurus. Since February 3, the cosmic love goddess has been gliding in and out of fiery, frisky, and fickle Aries—an extra long cycle that included a retrograde from March 4 to April 15. Romantic developments came in fits and starts since early 2017. Like pulling petals off a daisy, we’ve all been a little “I love you, I love you not” since February. But that all changes this week as Venus settles into steady earth sign Taurus until July 4. The sign of the bull is Venus’ home turf (as is Libra) and her powers can be quite potent here. What seemed boring last week could now feel quite heartwarming.
After months of shameless sexting, old-fashioned courtship rituals may suddenly be en vogue. A higher premium is placed on comfortable, consistent companionship than the adrenaline rush of a “here-today, gone tomorrow, back again next week” affair. Sure, a physical attraction is always going to be essential, as are common interests. But when it comes to socializing, Venus in Taurus underscores the importance of surrounding ourselves with people who share our values. Tighten up the purse strings, too, because this discerningly indulgent Venus phase helps us scrutinize our spending. If we’re going to insert a chip card into a reader, it better be for something in the “practical luxury” category.
