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

Jupiter in Libra; Sept. 9th, 2016 – Oct. 10th, 2017

By Molly Hall

“Jupiter’s time in Libra brings back high romance, with big over-the-top shows of love. Jupiter returns to Libra on September 9th and goes neatly through this cardinal sign to October 10th, 2017.  We can see a heightened emphases on love and making a big deal out of it.

Is your Jupiter in Libra?  Then it’s your “Luckiest Year,” a.k.a. the Jupiter Return.  I put that in quotes on purpose, because it’s not always the usual kind of luck, but is often subtle.

It’s also a boost for Air Signs (Libra, Gemini and Aquarius) and give a push to cardinal energies. This bodes well for prose and romantic poetry, as well as rom coms to make a come back.  This is a year to pair up, in love or business.

 

Past Jupiter in Libra Transits

  • The Peace Moratorium — In October of 1969, millions came to Washington to protest the Vietnam War, in the largest ever gathering of its kind.  There were also candle light vigils and protests across the country.
  • The Taylor-Burton Diamond (1969) — Richard Burton bought his love Elizabeth Taylor a 68-carat diamond, which was later on display at Cartier’s Jewelers in New York city.
  • Love Beads and Love-Ins — The hair style went long and straight at the end of the 1960s, a very Venusian, natural look.  Hand-made “love beads” were made into necklaces and worn.  Libra John Lennon staged his Bed-In for peace, and Make Love, Not War was the meme.
  • Prince Charles and Diana — (1981)  They were engaged in February, and married on July 23rd, in a royal wedding broadcast around the world.
  • The Facebook Launched (2004) — With the stated goal of expanding social networks, this synced with a Jupiter in Libra year, and everybody started collecting “friends.”

Sun in Taurus; April 19th – May 20th, 2016 ☀♉

“If I know what love is, it is because of you.”
― Hermann Hesse

It’s time to stop and smell the roses as the Sun enters sensual Taurus on Tuesday, April 19th for its month-long journey. In Taurus our senses are awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste. Spring has sprung, love is in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life.

Venus-ruled Taurus is a lover of the physical 3D experience and is most at home when surrounded by scenic wonders — fresh grass, blooming flowers and deep forests. Intimate moments in a cozy, beautiful atmosphere (preferably with great food and wine) is Taurus‘ idea of a good time.

Dark Venus

by Pride Ed

☙❦❧

Scarlet lips done in roses
She kisses the Sun goodnight, leaving crimson smears on the horizon
She ties black orchids to her ebony curls
 
Copper-colored hands weaving
 redolence into midnight gold
The night holds her close
She caresses the leaves and plays in shadows that move like smoke
Her amber eyes catch moonlight like glowing drops of honey
The tears from her eyes always the sweetest..
☙❦❧

Venus in Pisces; March 12th – April 5th, 2016 💙♀♓

"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

Love Goddess Venus dives into the realm of Pisces on March 12th, casting love spells and bringing harmony and compassion to our interactions. Venus in Pisces is love and beauty reaching its highest perfection.

It’s the most romantic of all Venusian journeys (the opposite of her recent journey in Aquarius!). It’s the fairy tale love experience..and I wouldn’t mind being swept off my feet during this transit..just sayin’.  ‾ ‿ ⁀

Creativity, reverie, and allure overflow while the Goddess of love makes her stop here. We may dream of, or long for whatever we value in the depths of our being…whether it’s forbidden love, the blissful union of soulmates, or the ecstasy of self-expression through poetry, photography, or other form of art.
