Venus in Virgo; Sept. 19 – Oct. 14, 2017 ♍❥

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
― Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband

Love planet Venus moves from playful Leo into virtuous Virgo today! Venus shows a reflection of our desires and in contrast to Venus‘ flashy transit in Leo, the mood lighting for love in Earth Sign Virgo is sensual but more subdued, or inhibited.

All matters that are Venus-ruled are not easily expressed in this practical realm. Virgos are more about taking care of business and are known to be detached or emotionally distant at times, with a natural reserve and a sense of purity.

Full Moon in Pisces; September 6th, 2017 ♓

 

The moment of maximum splendor occurs at 3:03 AM ET on Wednesday when the virtuous Virgo Sun opposes the ethereal Pisces Moon. Virgo and Pisces are signs of devotion and magic, from the worldly to the otherworldly.

The illusory world of dreams, shadows, and secrets is as valid to the Piscean as the reality of this one, sometimes even more so. This gentle Moon is a window of opportunity to dive deeply within, to release feelings of guilt and emotional poisons. Any damage incurred around the eclipses can be healed and cleansed now.

“Conflicting cosmic messages are strong during this Full Moon, as the detail-oriented Virgo Sun focuses our thoughts while the Pisces Moon joins nebulous Neptune to soften our resolve. Our fuzzy thinking inspires us to imagine alternatives that previously seemed impossible. Luckily, action-hero Mars and clever Mercury are harmoniously trine to electric Uranus at the time of the Full Moon, shocking us into awareness. Intelligence is poised to overcome ignorance. Change is not only possible, it’s inevitable — and it’s going to happen fast!” -Rick Levine

The Piscean/Neptunian vibration comes from a place of acceptance, faith and humility, but it can also be fearful and confusing. It’s common for Pisceans to be attracted to fantasy in an attempt to escape the gritty reality of this world.

It will be helpful to find an outlet to channel this dreamy, emotional energy. Art, music, poetry and dance — non-verbal forms of communication are especially healing during this time. Spend some time with your muse.

“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

If you’re birthday falls within five days of March 5th, this magical Full Moon in Pisces will be speaking to you directly. The same is true if you have a natal planet or point within five degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces at 14 degrees. Find this degree along the Virgo-Pisces axis to spiral in to the themes that could be up for you here.

Venus in Leo; Aug. 26 – Sept.19, 2017 ♀♡♌

Today, Venus, our planet of love, reaches the realm of Sun King Leo, where pleasure and passion reign supreme. This Sun-kissed Venus is looking for dramatic displays of affection and requires your undying love, devotion, and complete attention at all times!

“She wanted something else, something different, something more. Passion and romance, perhaps, or maybe quiet conversations in candlelit rooms, or perhaps something as simple as not being second.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

We’ll feed on attention, acknowledgment, validation, and adoration during this Venus in Leo transit. Leo wants to be the winner of all things — including the game of love.

This theatrical sign is known for overstating feelings, simply for effect. They will court you in a grand way, ignoring the world around you as they make you the center of their attention.

It’s possible to go overboard now and let imagination turn a shy smile into a hot and steamy love affair. Expect playful dates, grand overtures, loud declarations of love, and maybe even a few jealous tantrums…

As usual, each sign will feel the energy in a slightly different way. You lucky people with significant placements in Leo will be infused with Venusian energy most directly.

“You will find your love reflected in the smiles of all whom you love…in the eyes of your Beloved. As you love, so shall you be loved. For love begets love.” -Bill Atride

Happy Venus Return, Leo! xx

New Moon Solar Eclipse; August 21, 2017 ◉♌

 

“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 
― 
Edgar Allan Poe

A spectacular celestial event occurs on August 21st, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET when our most intimate cosmic bodies — Sun, Moon and Earth — click into place creating a Total Solar Eclipse.

This is the second of two consecutive Leo lunations — a magical bonus round to magnetize our heart’s desire. This extraordinary New Moon also occurs near the powerful fixed star Regulus, the Royal Star – the brightest in the Leo constellation.

“At this Leo New Moon, dare to be vulnerable and wear your heart on your sleeve! Why hold back your true feelings about someone you admire? Or pretend you don’t love something that’s not considered “cool” by the self-appointed tastemakers of the world? What’s really cool is to be unapologetically yourself.” -Astrotwins

Mars, our action planet, will be within four tiny degrees of this eclipse, adding a big boost of energy. These heavenly bodies will receive shimmering vibrations from Uranus, the planet of surprise.

Those whose personal planets are activated by the 29th degree of the eclipse will feel its effects on a highly personal level.

Ideas planted during this period will have a lot of fire behind them. Put your unique brand of amazing in all you’re passionate about!

Electric breakthroughs can be made, especially if you are born around February 26th or August 21st. Home and relationship changes are likely if your birthday falls near February 11th or August 7th.

For clues, think back to the eclipse of August 22nd, 1998, when there was a Solar Eclipse in Leo at the same degree. Can you remember anything special that happened that year or in early 1999?

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small

Wishing you Peace, Love & Light. xx

 

 

Magnetic Attraction

Synastry…what could be more fascinating?! Check out this great article by Maria DeSimone! xx

Astrologically, there are a few clear indicators to help you understand why one person has the power to give you an immediate rush while someone else leaves you feeling flat. Explore what your planets might say of your latest crush.

Sun-Moon

This is the classic indicator not only for attraction, but for compatibility. When you share a Sun-Moon tie with someone there’s an instant rapport that just can’t be beat. One’s essence (Sun) is embraced and understood intuitively (Moon). The Moon person can count on the Sun person and this pair will easily “get” each other. When this combination is found along with one of the sexier indicators of chemistry, it’ll likely be a love match that’s hard to beat.

Venus-Mars

This is by far the most famous inter-aspect for attraction. The planet of love (Venus) meets up with the planet of desire (Mars) and voila — you’ve got chemistry! There is a magnetic force that seems to pull the two of you together when you share this link. This is the kind of connection that makes your knees go weak when your special someone kisses you.

Sun-Mars (or, if someone’s Mars falls in your 5th House of Creativity)

When the Sun and Mars are linked, passion is fortified! The Sun person feels energized in this relationship and his or her sex drive is immediately aroused in the presence of the Mars person. Mars feels prompted to pursue the Sun person in an assertive way. The thrill of the chase is intoxicating with this connection!

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.
