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

New Moon in Virgo; Sept. 20th, 2017 ♍

Summer ends with a New Moon in the sign of the earth goddess. New Moons are about release and renewal and under Virgo’s Moonbeams the focus is on creating order, efficiency and wellness.

With the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars all in meticulous Virgo, emotional satisfaction comes from a job well done — but remember, Virgo can easily become hyper-critical and agonize over smallest detail. Striving for perfection can be great as long as we don’t allow ourselves to become overly focused on flaws and feel guilt/shame over them.

“The Virgo part of you wants to be right. Self criticism kills creativity and expansion. You are a powerful creator. Don’t focus on lack or what is not working. Focus on what you have accomplished. Try new things. Make mistakes. Make many mistakes. You have to break eggs to make an omelet. Be positive. Think big. Be brave. Try. Push the Launch Button.” -Kelley Rosano

If your birthday falls within four days of September 19th, you will benefit the most from this New Moon in Virgo. The same is true if you have a natal planet or point around 27 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.

It’s important to be internally clear and meaningful about what you want now. Send your requests out in a wish or a prayer. Focus on where you’re going and make peace with the past.

The actions you take, and the goals you achieve will have the power to stay with you for a full year, until next year’s New Moon in Virgo returns with fresh energy. xx

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
