“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 in Pisces; Mar. 17, 2018 ♓

“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” ― Vincent van Gogh

A new chapter begins on Saturday, March 17th, 2018, at 9:11 AM EDT as a New Moon occurs in the mystical twelfth sign of the Zodiac. Pisces’ watery landscape offers us a gateway to the higher realms of human consciousness. The illusory world of dreams, shadows and secrets is as valid to the Piscean as the reality of this one, sometimes even more so.

“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

Venus in Pisces; Feb. 10 – Mar. 6 2018 💙♀♓

“Mesmerised by an ocean dream,
Eternal life, alone and free.
Rolling waves, sea pure and clear,
Maybe I’ve found shelter from the storm.”
Alice Morris, A Mermaid’s Dream

 

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.

“The mood of love is one of wanting to be fully absorbed in the moment — its sounds, the space between words, a look or smile that speaks volumes. Venus in Pisces is for the cozy corner table with candlelight, or going away to a place where nobody knows you…” -Molly Hall

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.

Total Lunar Eclipse + Full Moon in Leo; Jan. 31, 2018 ☍◉♌

A Supermoon and Total Lunar Eclipse arrives at 8:27 AM EST on Wednesday, energizing the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo. This majestic Leo Lunar Eclipse is the halfway point of the series on the Leo-Aquarius axis that began on February 10th, 2017 and wraps up on January 21, 2019.

“Every so often the universe gives struggling humans aboard Spaceship Earth an extra Full Moon during a month to keep our species on high alert. An enlightening energy-field descends during a Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse. Other cosmic golden nuggets on Wednesday include Messenger of the Gods Mercury entering Aquarius until February 17th and a good-luck charm hidden within a resplendent Venus-Jupiter parallel (8:14am). Today’s tour-de-force has vast ramifications for Earth’s evolution in the solar system while numerous waves of exalted goodwill spread around the globe.” -Mark Lerner

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.
