Full Moon in Gemini; December 3, 2017 ♊


A cosmic pull occurs on Sunday, December 3rd at 10:47 AM ET between the Moon in Gemini, the realm of vivid mental curiosity and the Sun in Sagittarius, the seeker of universal and personal truth.

“The cosmic noise factor is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde the same day, leaving everyone a bit dazed and confused for the next three weeks. Also during this Full Moon, a blurry Moon-Neptune square plus a fuzzy Jupiter-Neptune trine magnify dreams, adding a wide-angle distortion filter to the picture; it’s almost impossible to see the truth even when it is staring back at you. This is a metaphysical showdown — facts vs. beliefs, spiritual vs. superficial, and clarity vs. illusion. Dancing with a myriad of dualities can be an entertaining and enlightening experience if emotional flexibility, mental agility, and a swift wit are always within reach.” -Rick Levine

New Moon in Scorpio; Nov. 18, 2017 ♏

New Moon occurs on Saturday, November 18th, 2017, at 6:42 AM ET in the mysterious realm of Scorpio. This energetic doorway invites us to probe into our innermost universe; to rummage around, find the secrets, the lies, and soul-centered desires.

“The fear of the unknown is what keeps most people stuck in a cycle. Instead of giving yourself a sunny pep talk, embrace what’s coming up. Explore your worries and shine a light on those monsters under the bed. By acknowledging what’s buried you can embark on a journey that’s not just successful, but also amazingly nourishing to your soul.” -Astrotwins

This phase of the Moon occurs at 26 degrees and 19 minutes of Scorpio. If your birthday falls within five days of this New Moon in Scorpio this is a powerful opportunity for transformation. The same is true if you have personal planets or points at 22 – 30 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Venus in Scorpio; Nov. 7th – Dec. 1st, 2017 ♀💕♏

 

Venus, our planet of Love, slithers through mysterious Scorpio from November 7th to December 1st, 2017. While Venus in Libra was all about making relationships peaceful and balanced without ruffling any feathers — Venus in Scorpio takes us beyond the superficial to encounters of bare naked honesty…

“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.” ― Margaret Atwood

This Venus wants love seductively, privately, deeply, completely, but her game of seduction occurs subtly. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and know that passion is usually intensified when it is restrained or suppressed. Grand overtures and declarations are major turn-offs. Passion is silent but eyes and body language speak volumes.

Relationships, romantic ones especially, will feel the heat in more ways than one…Venus here can be extremely suspicious of others, almost expecting betrayal and lies. Yup, paranoid.

This intense Water Sign is capable of hating with the same level of passion as they once loved if you’ve crossed their invisible line. The scorpion sting is no fable. Jealousy, power plays, hidden agendas and possessiveness can also be the shadow side to this Venus atmosphere.

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

Jupiter in Scorpio; Oct. 10, 2017 – Nov. 8, 2018

“At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Starting today, benevolent Jupiter takes up residence in magnetic Scorpio until November 8th, 2018. After a thirteen-month transit of Libra, Jupiter’s lucky, larger-than-life presence will be working powerfully on the themes associated with the eighth sign of the Zodiac.

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.
