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

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.

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

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

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.

Full Moon in Libra; April 11th, 2017☾♎

Reaching its climax at 2:09 AM ET, an extraordinary Full Moon in Libra lights up the skies. Justice League Libra is the energetic embodiment of grace, wit, and style and seeks balance and fairness in relationships. This lunation asks; How tolerant are you? How patient are you? How forgiving are you?

 “What is not built on Truth cannot last in this climate of change. There needs to be Love in your union. Co-dependency is not love. Enabling others is not love. Keeping the peace at all costs is not love. These are the shadow side of Libra. Be proactive. Do not be reactive. That only adds fuel to the fire. Cooler heads will prevail. Be calm. Be centered. Be grounded.” -Kelley Rosano

Powerful cosmic forces are at work. A game-changing T-square between Sun and Uranus and the Moon and Jupiter (conjunct lucky fixed star, Spica!) ignites an unexpected turn of events. Emotional outbursts can occur suddenly and fiercely.

Before calling anyone out, be extra mindful in the spheres of communication with so many planets in retrograde (Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and soon Pluto). Venus squaring Saturn also demands that we maintain healthy boundaries.

New Moon in Aquarius; Jan. 27th, 2017 ❂♒

A New Moon occurs on January 27th, 2017 in the futuristic Air sign of Aquarius at 7:07 PM EST, marking the beginning of a fresh new cycle and a New Chinese Lunar Year!

A New Moon in Aquarius is considered to be a doorway to finer cosmic vibes and this is a time for a breakthrough into the strange, but exhilarating unknown. This lunation demands creative freedom and promotes a strong need to express our individuality.

“2016’s Fire Monkey was true to form with all his sneaky unpredictability and chaotic ways. Friday, the calendar turns over as we welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster—a flamboyant energy that is also a helluva lot more predictable. Given the patriarchal uprising that is afoot, some might not love hearing news that the Cock will reign supreme in 2017; however, although the Rooster might strut his stuff, he’s pretty darn protective of the hens in his coop. And his crows, which come like clockwork every morning, are meant to wake people up. Metaphorically speaking, we are hoping this means there will be more #WokeFolks on the planet in a very short time.” -Astrotwins

It’s a Good Time to:

  • Show appreciation to your friends and colleagues
  • Develop a privacy barrier in your virtual life
  • Break out of your mental boxes
  • Seek those that are an inspired match
  • Embrace the glorious, outrageous, unique you
  • Meditate for world peace

This phase of the Moon occurs at 8 degrees of Aquarius, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 4 to 12 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.

New Moons are an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions before they bust through the soil and reach for the growing lunar light. But first, take a moment to thank yourself for all your strength and progress you’ve made since the Capricorn New Moon. XX

Full Moon in Gemini; December 13, 2016 ❂♊

On Tuesday evening, the Moon reaches its climax at 7:05PM ET in curious Gemini, the realm of the Twins.

Fantasies, epiphanies, declarations and confessions may come to the surface.

Individual and group meditations are advised around the time-period of this highly resourceful solar-lunar monthly apotheosis. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and the kingdoms of nature.” -Mark Lerner
