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.

“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. Gemini is the Zodiac’s smooth talker and this Full Moon is one of the year’s peak moments to find our voice and express what’s in our hearts.

“If you have been clearing the decks of old energies and eagerly awaiting today’s enlightening Full Moon, then you should be ready for a revitalizing and mind-expanding cosmic jolt. 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

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.

New Moon in Libra; Sept. 30, 2016 @ 8:11 PM EDT ☾♎

via tarot.com

“The New Moon in Libra on September 30, 2016 is all about pursuing harmony. However, we must understand that the need for creating balance can touch every part of our lives, including personal and business relationships. Paradoxically, we need to stand our ground or even fight for peace, since the New Moon squares warrior Mars and potent Pluto. But engaging in a power struggle is not the goal, it’s just a hurdle that has to be overcome on our way to a more tranquil existence.

This lunation is the first New Moon of autumn (in the northern hemisphere). It offers us a chance to hit the emotional reset button so we can start over. Naturally, we carry our past memories with us, but they don’t exert the same influence as they once did. It’s as if we’ve finally been given the go-ahead and we look to the horizon with renewed anticipation. 

Although we strive for objectivity, we may deceive ourselves into believing everything is great, because this Sun-Moon conjunction joins optimistic Jupiter. No doubt, we can be misled by our fantasies, but these dreams also lay the foundation on which we build our futures.”

This New Moon occurs at 8 degrees and 15 minutes of Libra, affecting those with personal planets and points at approximately 4 to 12 degrees Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most significantly. xo

Sun in Libra & Fall Equinox; Sept. 22nd, 2016 ❂♎

By Elizabeth Grace

“The big news today is the Sun leaving Virgo for Libra at 10:22AM ET. Happy birthday, Libra! Here’s what you need to know about the first day of any season  — i.e., equinoxes and solstices — from an astrological point of view.

The first days of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter correspond with the first day (or first degree) of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, respectively (there are thirty degrees in each sign of the zodiac).

These four signs are called cardinal signs. Cardinal signs initiate. They come up with the idea and put it into action, which leads to necessary change. “Cardinal” suggests (from the Latin root of the word), “that on which something turns or depends.”  So the first day/degree of a Cardinal sign is a turning point.

In astrology, the technical term for the first degree of any Cardinal sign is the “Aries Point”, just to confuse people who are not professional astrologers. In other words, the first day of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries is the Aries Point. The first day of Taurus (and the rest of the signs) is NOT at the Aries Point).

Equinoxes and solstices are also prominent. We make a fuss over them, right? In Japan, the first day of each season is actually a national holiday. How cool is that? Thus, in a horoscope, a planet or angle at the Aries Point needs to be prominent.
