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.

New Moon in Taurus; April 26th, 2017❂♉

Early Wednesday, a New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align at 8:16 AM ET in the strong, sensual Earth sign of Taurus. After the exhilarating-yet-maddening Aries season, the Taurus Moon is reminding us to slow down. Breathe.

This exalted Taurus lunation is also ruled by Venus, our Goddess of beauty and pleasure. Our senses are being awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste. What do you love and value?

“The plantings of this New Moon have the potential to grow into tangible support and satisfaction. It also has an air of fatedness, of supposed-to-be, with the New Moon making a wide trine to the Virgo North Node of destiny. That contact is a benediction of sorts for the 18-month journey through Virgo the node is wrapping up, and the coming flourishing is what we’ve been working toward. And some of that could end up feeling like heaven on earth. With Venus in the waters of higher love, and their ruler Neptune offering assistance, divine or ecstatic experiences are certainly possible down here on Terra Firma.” -Sally Kirkland

With Mercury still in retrograde, it’s about laying the groundwork for action around mid-May when things won’t be as fuzzy. Also circle November 4th, the date of the corresponding Full Moon in Taurus. That’s when you’ll reap the fruits of your harvest.

Look for wherever Taurus lands in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If your birthday falls on April 26th, plus or minus five days, you’ll benefit the most from this New Moon. The same is true if you have a planet or point in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius around 6 degrees..

Light a candle; make a list. Reset intentions. xx

Full Moon in Virgo; March 12th, 2017❂♍

On Sunday, March 12th, 2017 at 10:53 AM EDT, the luminaries peak in the sign of the Earth Goddess. This Virgo Full Moon takes in the mystical light of the Pisces Sun, bringing to culmination that which began during the previous Pisces New Moon.

“Before you can enjoy the energizing rays of the solar-lunar monthly apotheosis — the cosmos decide to toss you a curve ball in the form of a square between Mercury in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. The antidote to any rising stress is to think more about your higher destiny in this lifetime than on fulfilling lower-level desires. Give business and professional matters the brush-off until greater clarity returns. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and kingdoms of nature around the moment of the Full Moon. Lift people up with cheer rather than pulling them down with criticism.”  -Mark Lerner

At this lunation, there’s a high beam on the mind-body connection. This can be a time of clearing, simplifying and purifying, as well as turning creative inspiration into practical forms.

Virgo, the Virgin craves order, purity and the satisfaction of a job well done, Pisces, the Fish is the instinct to surrender to divine inflow for spiritual vitality. Now’s the time to ask; What’s toxic to my body, mind and spirit?

If your birthday falls on September 14, plus or minus five days, you will feel this Full Moon the most. The same is true if you have a natal planet or point in Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer at 22 degrees, plus or minus five degrees.

You might finally enjoy a long overdue recognition for the small, constructive choices you’ve made. Wishing you peace, love, and Light! xx

New Moon in Capricorn; December 29, 2016❂♑

With retrograde Mercury conjunct the New Moon, this marks a time where we can be making adjustments in our career goals and personal accomplishments; perhaps taking a look at how we use our power in the world and what may be inhibiting our success potentials.

Intuition is heightened with the lunation’s sextile to Mars and Neptune in Pisces, but the details of our plans now may be hidden, overlooked, or unclear.

“This new moon wants us to challenge ourselves. That’s what keeps the mission interesting, right? And it’s not just about winning the shiny gold star here, either. With alchemical Pluto and Mercury retrograde also in Capricorn, we need to set soul goals—ones that satisfy our deepest desires while bringing material rewards. Radical Uranus snaps out of a five-month retrograde the very same day, encouraging us to dream outside of the box.” -Astrotwins

Sun in Capricorn + Winter Solstice; Dec. 21st, 2016 ❄☀♑

Our guiding light begins its climb from darkness into light on December 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. At this very mystical time, the Sun seems to stand still at the Tropic of Capricorn, then reverses its direction as it reaches its southernmost declination of -23.5 degrees, giving just 7 hours and 49 minutes of daylight. The dark triumphs but only briefly. Today, Light is reborn.

“This time of year is associated with light — string lights, sparklers and of course, candles. The timeless traditions during the dark season are thought to be an attempt to balance out the sunless gloom of winter. The lights are reminders of our inner light, and hope for the return of sunny days.”Molly Hall

Venus in Capricorn; Nov. 11 – Dec. 7, 2016 ♀♑

Venus, our planet of love, pleasure and beauty, moves into conservative Capricorn today. Love is serious business for Venus in any of the Earth signs. Security, stability, longevity and the commitment to the labor of love is highlighted now. 

Our Love Goddess here is quite image-conscious, too. Desires are material and tangible. Relationships need a shared purpose. Personal power, status, VIPs and “looks good on paper” types are attractive. Big time. Friends with benefits are also associated with this archetype, as well as May-December romances.
