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

Full Moon in Virgo; March 1, 2018 ❂♍

Tonight, at 7:51 PM ET, the luminaries peak in Earth Sign, Virgo. 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.

“March 2018 begins with plenty of higher illumination. Put away the petty and superficial playthings of the material realm while exploring the profundity present in philosophical studies about the deeper meaning of life on this fragile planet. 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

Venus in Capricorn; Dec. 25, 2017 – Jan. 17, 2018 ❥♑

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.

Saturn in Capricorn; Dec. 19, 2017 – Mar. 21, 2020 ♑

Saturn leaves fiery Sagittarius today to focus its attention on the third Earth sign of the Zodiac. Saturn returns to Capricorn every 28-30 years, staying for about three years each time. Now as the rigid, ringed planet returns home to conservative Capricorn — the sign it rules — it will provide a double dose of its demands and pressures ensuring that we make the most of our time and talents.

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 Capricorn; July 9, 2017❂♑

A Full Moon in Capricorn occurs on Sunday, July 9th, 2017, at 12:07 AM ET when the sensitive Cancer Sun opposes the cool Capricorn Moon. This cosmic illumination is about the balance between sweet success and material rewards vs. the comfort of home and family. Both signs ultimately seek security, yet reach for it in very different ways. This is an invitation to look reality in the eye as we reset our priorities.

“The reason this 24-hour time-period stands out is that there is not only a very powerful and potentially enlightening Full Moon  – energizing 18 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn – but intense, formidable and secretive Pluto unites with the Moon and is therefore a part of the entire Full Moon vibration. There is so much more going on now in the subterranean regions of the human kingdom than there was in February 1930, when distant Pluto was discovered at 18 degrees of Cancer. Thus, this Full Moon – while a possible source of amazing illumination in so many ways – can drag many souls down into murky recesses of deep-seated feelings, repressed emotions, and even so-called past-life memories. Wisdom dictates that being an ambassador of love and light to our fellow travelers on board Spaceship Earth is the way to travel.” -Mark Lerner
