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

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!

Sun, Mars & New Moon in Leo ♌

“Be the flame, not the moth.”
― Giacomo Casanova

An energizing New Moon occurs on July 23rd at 4:33 am EDT, when the Sun and Moon unite in the realm of the Sun King. This fierce AF lunation is for growing our personal power. Leo inspires playing, loving, and creating – its influence encourages us show off who we are to the max.

This New Moon’s conjunction with warrior Mars helps us to ignite that inner flame that sometimes gets dimmed by life’s daily grind. As this fortunate new cycle unfolds, we will feel emotionally stronger (after the inner turmoil Cancer season tends to stir up) and more determined to committing to our goals. But, with this much fire in the heavens, we must find healthy outlets to channel these energies before getting impatient, impulsive or aggressive.

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

Does your birthday fall between July 23rd-28th? Do you have a natal planet or point in Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at 1 degree, plus or minus four degrees?

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bill Keane
