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

Venus in Aquarius; Dec. 7, 2016 – Jan. 3, 2017 💜☮♒

“Love her but leave her wild.” ― Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Venus, the planet of love and pleasure visits the free-spirited sign of Aquarius on December 7th, 2016. We now move towards novelty, independence and freedom as themes in our interpersonal relationships. The Aquarian motto is take me as I am, and rebels against those that set out to tame them.

This renegade Venusian vibe 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.

During this time many of us will have zero tolerance for friends, partners or family members who are possessive, manipulative or try to dictate our lives. This liberated Venus is completely turned off by power trips, games, or double standards. Giving loved ones more space and room to move is a must for this Venus transit.

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.”

Venus in Cancer; June 17 – July 12, 2016 ♀♋

“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.George Moore, The Brook Kerith

Welcome to the Comfort Zone! This Friday, June 17th, Venus slips from breezy Gemini into caring Cancer. Venus’ recent journey in Gemini was busy, buzzing, bubbly, frenzied!

So what should we expect now as the Goddess of Love settles into the home of the Crab? Imagine plunging into a cool lake after a long, tense day of meetings. Water refreshes, soothes and supports…it’s pure liquid pleasure.

“If you have this Venus sign, your soft lovability and tenderness is magnetic and is designed to attract a very specific kind of partner – a kind, caring partner who values nesting, family. You are extremely sensitive. While your heightened sensitivity is appreciated by those who truly love you, it’s not by everyone. ” -Jessica Shephard

Possibilities for Venus in Cancer

  • Making time for family — great food, reunions, giving the gift of your undivided attention.
  • Looking at any issues of dependency, as a way of keeping someone with you forever.
  • Irrational moods (being Moonstruck), temporarily losing all objectivity, throwing tantrums to get needs met.
  • Self-expression that reaches into the emotional roots.
  • Being comforted by large bodies of water; lakes, rivers, seas.
  • Creating a cozy, intimate atmosphere where our loved ones feel welcome.

Venus in Taurus; April 29 – May 24, 2016 ❤♉

“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.

“If there’s something only Venus in Taurus can teach us, is that pleasure and enjoyment are as important as duty and productivity when it comes to our balance and well-being – and that the process of building an authentic, spiritually and materially fulfilling life starts from within.” -Aeterna

Our appetite for pleasure is strong. Everything is foreplay. Hugs, soft kisses, kind gestures…closeness is essential for feeling good now. Those born with this Venus placement (like myself (•◡•)) crave beauty, security and peace and in order to feel happy.

Taurus isn’t a sign known for casual hook-ups, they express love and lust in a stirring, mellow way. Taurus is slooow and steady when it comes to relationships and isn’t really known for double dipping.
