When did you feel your

Was I the source 
of your greatest bliss?” 
-Roman Payne, The Wanderess

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

Venus & Mercury enter Aries; March 6th, 2018 ❤♀☿♈

“I will never forget your fire. I can’t wait to see what you do.”
Kiera Cass, Happily Ever After

Today, Venus and Mercury blaze into the realm of daredevil Aries and out of the dreamy purple haze of Pisces. Driven by the straight-shooting, fiery vibes of Mars, passion comes through loud and clear as the planet of logic and the planet of love transits bold and exciting Aries.

Desires are expressed spontaneously, enthusiastically, and directly. For lovebirds, old and new, this is great news as Agent Provocateur Aries can light our divine spark through sweet crushes and hot pursuits.

“Clever banter, inspired bursts of brilliance, shameless come-ons—yep, our exchanges will be charged with the Ram’s spirited dynamism. Friendships and flirtations can heat up quickly over the next few weeks.” -Astrotwins

Aries has a reputation as the reckless restless romantic, so flames tend to fizzle out as fast as they sizzle — especially if there isn’t a level of intensity and mystery involved.

When faced with opposition, these fired up planets can instigate hasty actions and provocative remarks.

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.

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.

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.
