Hello world!

This site will bring you some interesting and timely posts about what is going on in the Heavens — I love studying astrology, and I enjoy passing on the information I have gleaned from the moving planets in aspect to the sun and moon and each other.  Even if you feel this kind of post isn’t for you — if you give it a try, you might find it amusing, informative, downright accurate, or just a good way to pass a couple of lazy minutes on your computer. 

I have found over the years that much of what goes on in the ether does affect the happenings here on planet Earth — much depends on the sign you were born under and what aspects are in your own personal natal chart.  You can get your natal chart free from many sites on the internet — and learning where your sun and moon are located, along with the sign that was rising at the time of your birth will give you a heads up as to what cycle you are now going through. 

There are many cycles that the planets bring to us, Saturn, for instance (I call it the “learning” planet — has a cycle of approximately 28 to 30 years) — by the time we are 30 we have experienced the planets influence in each house of our natal chart.  It’s no wonder that the Hippies of the 60’s quipped “Don’t trust anyone over 30” — we are changed because of our having been through the many and varied, sometimes difficult lessons of Saturn throughout our charts.

Also there is a magnificent opposition from the planet Uranus at age 42 (give or take a year) that challenges us — can we say “mid-life crisis”?  This year is often fraught with changes that we might be less that anxious to have happen.  Yet the planet Uranus doesn’t bring a change unless it is going to build us a newer and stronger foundation.  It is part of the building blocks of our journey throughout this lifetimes path. 

We can accept and grow with the help of the Universal forces, or we can challenge the energies and find ourselves at odds with our true and natural path.  In astrology there is a saying “As above — so below” … this doesn’t mean we have no free will — it only shows us that by following the natural harmony of the galaxy, we can flourish and meet all of our expectations — or we can rale against the forces and be held accountable in many formidable ways.  The stars may impel, but they do not compel any actions or beliefs. 

The world is our oyster, there is so much for the taking, so much beauty, knowledge, fun and happiness to be garnered from our lifetime here, if we but choose to be aware and partake of its bounty.

I hope you will join me in opening up the mysteries and secrets of the Universe as we all travel on this tiny blue planet called Earth — it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get it right, we have the choice, the right, and the means to become our best selves, and to find our place in the Universe.  Lets all gear up and promise ourselves we will choose to become the ultimate human being we are meant to be — awesomeness is an option — let it be you!

Welcome fellow searchers for the truth — it is out there…


Full Moon in Gemini — November 25, 2015

The Full Moon this month crests on the 25th, at 5:44PM EST at 3 degrees of Gemini. Since this occurs a day before Thanksgiving, there might be a bit more frustration in preparing for the holiday. Gemini is an airy intelligent sign that is so mentally active that there are times when common sense flies out the window. Gemini’s are almost never totally at rest — their active minds just keep on spinning with new ideas, little anxieties, fears about the future, and wondering what is going to happen to this world. Well, they probably are also wondering what’s for dinner, because planning isn’t usually their forte! Brilliant, quixotic, ever youthful, embracing life, living for the moment, usually upbeat and happy to see their friends, having a effervescent laugh, embracing life with all of its encumbrances, our Gemini friends and family keep us on our toes, give us the freedom to be ourselves, and find the humor and absurdity in our humble humanity. Ready for fun, frolicking and any new adventure, they are our ever-young companions when we need a friend to accompany us on a quest.

This Full Moon will have a stronger effect on those born on the cusp of Gemini and its opposite sign Sagittarius — it will be wise to keep emotions under control, watch out for distracted drivers, find a way to use this dynamic energy to help get us through the many details of creating a lavish meal for family and friends. Beware of hot dishes and pans — or any open fire that you might be working near. Just be careful not to be abrupt or hasty when cooking, or if feeling rushed, take a moment to breathe and evaluate your needs. Take your time to be safe and moderate your responses to any unforeseen happenings. Take that extra beat of time to assess just what it is you are trying to accomplish. It won’t be the end of the world if your green beans are a little overdone, or your gravy is lumpy — (that’s what strainers are for)! Thanksgiving is just that — giving Thanks for all of our Blessings! Let’s remember the goal is to be with those we love, to connect, to spend time with, to laugh and love together. Okay — we all look forward to the food!

Some of the Full Moon energy will overflow into the morning hours, so a having a plan of action for the Big day will go far in smoothing out any little bumps in the road. And if things haven’t gone as you planned, when your company arrives — just put them to work on those things that need to be done. We all have experienced those exasperating times when nothing we did turned out well — and we all know it wasn’t for lack of trying — we are only human — let it GO! As far as I’m concerned pizza tastes as good as turkey — well — kinda!  Somehow the day comes together — no-one remembers the “mishaps” and all look forward to the next holiday!

Last year my stove caught on fire — quickly extinguished — the house was full of smoke — we opened all the windows although it was chilly — put fans on so the smoke would dissipate, (thanks to my Grandson Tim – the paramedic/fireman) — cleaned the stove, and carried on — everything tasted wonderful, although the Turkey had a slightly smokey flavor! The point is we can adjust, alter, modify our reaction to what’s happening. And then we can act in a positive manner to find a solution — I never once thought our dinner would be ruined — and it might have added a bit of excitement to our day! I am hoping this year goes smoother though — sigh!

Be of good cheer — eat, drink (responsibly), and be merry! All will be well — promise!



Park It — Jone Victoria — November 25, 2008

What is the most irritating thing about going shopping? After cutting out mall rats, not finding a salesperson, or tolerating annoying music that assaults your senses — it has to be finding a parking space close to your destination!

Well be of good cheer, I am about to divulge the secret of getting the parking space of your dreams.

When you are about five minutes from your destination, imagine a parking space opening up right in front of the store. Imagine the space freeing up as if it was your own “employee of the month” reward. See it — visualize it — believe it. Park it.

I’ve been doing this for forty years and it’s never failed. There’s your Black Friday gift from me to you. You’re welcome.

As I was perusing my Jone book — this page opened as if by magic to this post — seeing the date, I knew it would be apropos for this time period. I also have used this method with unusually positive results — especially when my husband is driving, I will seriously concentrate on a good parking spot — even visualizing the color of the cars parked next to the space that is open. He will often park the car, and say “thanks”! I just smile. It is especially important to think about doing this in advance — Jone might have only needed 5 minutes, but I get better results using this method as I leave the house. Whatever your choice, it is a handy tool when facing the throngs of shoppers during this busy season. Let me know how it works for you.

Good Luck!



Happy Thanksgiving Day — November 26, 2015

Our annual Holiday Season here in New England usually begins with our traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner — usually a roasted Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes or squash. Green vegetables are according to each families taste — green bean casserole, roasted Brussels sprouts, creamed spinach, asparagus or even Lima beans. There is always a surfeit of foodstuffs and something to pique everyone’s taste-buds.

Of course desserts are in a separate category entirely, with many fruit pies made with produce from local farms; apple, pumpkin, squash, and sweet potato — then the other traditional pies — custards, pecan, lemon meringue, and chocolate creme. Well we don’t have them all at once — each family has their favorites and look forward to the individual delectable tastes on their palate. Brownies, cookies, cakes, all are made to order by family cooks with recipes garnered over many years. Toll House cookies are always a must in our family, along with a ricotta pie (for Dad) and cinnamon pin wheels.

The kitchen smells wonderfully fragrant with the hearty aroma of the roasting turkey, vegetables bubbling or baking, all of the pastries sitting on the counter each creating a halo of sweet or savory memories. Fancy chocolates are in dainty plates, mixed nuts in bowls, delicate cinnamon pastries stacked high, platters of hearty wedges of cheese and crisp wafers sit side-by-side ready to be enjoyed with a glass of wine or a sweet sangria. When folks arrive there are hugs and kisses exchanged — especially to those who have traveled from afar to be part of the celebration. Coats and hats are dispersed to upstairs rooms, extra chairs are placed in every room so conversations can be shared about the past year, remembering past holidays and sharing current family news. Laughter erupts from every corner as everyone is embraced and relaxes into the comfortable rhythm of this annual festivity of family reunion and love.

Family — the sound evokes a deep feeling of longing and belonging — “We are Family” — how lucky are we to have those people in our lives that will always be there for us? As humanity evolved, it was apparent that survival depended on the group, clan, tribe, band of brothers and sisters who would be there for us in good times, but most importantly in times of need, or tragedy — in fair weather and foul. As a species we wouldn’t have evolved into today’s homo sapiens without the help and love of others of our kind. We endured danger and difficulty throughout the ages and finally we thrived as our species grew ever stronger. We are made of stern stuff — the right stuff. We survived because of each other and our bond to our indigenous tribe. We began our family groups that watched out for each other, helped each other and loved each other.

In today’s modern world people travel for their jobs, for a better standard of living, for better weather and for a multitude of reasons too numerous to mention. Our clan or tribe has been changing in its nature with the ability of man to travel vast distances. However, there are times when there is a basic need, indeed an inner yearning to come together — to touch base — to bring the “Family” together! Our yearly traditions are those times that we gather as family to renew our bonds, make contact with our elders, look upon the newest members that have joined our group whether through marriage or birth, and we feel the ancient connection to our ancestors deep within our psyches. Parents, children, grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, spouses, and those we bring into our realm with love and tenderness. All become an integral part of who we are — all have a karmic lesson to teach us or a lesson to learn from us — there is an ebb and flow of knowledge, lore, tradition, talent, and the undeniable fact that without these loved ones, our lives would be filled with less light, less love, and less humanity! Overcoming individual differences, spirits, ideologies, biases and personalities — we still connect on a primeval level of understanding, acceptance and family love.

As we come together to share this intimate moment in time, this traditional harvest feast, this ritual of unconditional commitment to each other, we are humbled by our emotional response to each and every individual who has helped to bring us to this special interval. Our love fills our hearts with thankfulness that we belong to this group — this tribe — this clan — this unique family! As we look around the table that is overflowing with nature’s bounty — each and every person has their place in our lives forever — it is our karma to be here with them to celebrate our survival as a species and as members of this magnificent family group. We are loved – we are family — we belong!

Take some time during this wonderful season of hope, caring and love to feel how connected, how linked, how “related” we all are as family and as the family of Man. This small blue planet we call Earth is fragile and tenuous in its ability to sustain our species — we must treat our planet gently and with great foresight — our survival depends on it. We are also a fragile species — so we must always be aware that life can change in a heartbeat — nothing is guaranteed — no one lives forever — but we know that our love of family and friends will never die!

I am so thankful for all the blessings and people in my life — they help keep me strong, they help me be caring, they bring me joy, they comfort me, they love me just because — and in turn they have my everlasting love throughout the infinity of time and space.

Our prayers go out to the people of France as they come to grips with the horrendous attack that killed or injured so many innocents. May their spirits be free — may they find some comfort in knowing the world stands with them throughout this ordeal. Peace!


Mars Enters Libra — November 12, 2015

Another blockbuster Planet will enter Libra this month, Mars will leave Virgo with a sigh of relief, and enter Airy Libra on the 12th at 4:41 PM EST. Not quite comfortable in Virgo, our valiant Mars will be pleased to soon arrive in another Cardinal sign — Virgo was not Mars cup-of-tea! The two just have a lot of issues to solve when joined together, and it made for an uneasy truce of sorts. Nevertheless — Mars in Virgo has it’s place in the rotation of the Planetary movements and we must learn to use the energies of these odd-couples as best we can!

Now that Mars has entered Libra shortly after Venus entry on the 8th, we will have a lot of passion and love in our Libra House — look at your chart and observe where Libra lives — this House will be able to use the auspices of both Mars and Venus components. Mars brings us an abundance of vigor, passion and vibrancy in Airy Libra that can help us intelligently find our way to our one true love — especially with Venus already ensconced in Libra the loving vibes will be more intense and perhaps even overwhelming. Our psyches will be invigorated and strongly sensitized to those whose vibrations are spiritually connected to ours. This can be a Karmic connection or one that may be newly honed. Keep all of your senses tuned into those around you especially if Libra is on your 1st House cusp or or is in a favorable aspect to a Planet in your 5th House. Each new person (or perhaps an old friend) will be a possible love connection. You may see a “friend” in a new light — or a newly met “acquaintance” could turn out to be the love of your life! So many possibilities, so little time! Venus leaves Libra on the 4th of December, and Mars changes in early January! Of course they both enter Scorpio then — another intense and sexy sign! Take advantage of this month to meet as many people as you can, and accept all invitations to social affairs or holiday parties! Be open to meeting and greeting old friends and any newcomers — schmooze, connect, network, enjoy!

What else does Mars in Libra bring to our Planetary table? Both vibrate to the Cardinal modifier and Fiery Mars can use Libra’s Airiness to keep the flames of love, passion, and relationships sizzling  hot! Mars in Libra will be in a dance macabre for a while as Mars gets used to Libra’s need for balance and planning. Since Mars wants to be in the lead and be the Alpha Male in charge, he may initially come up against Libra’s ability to diffuse and confuse. Libra has definite ideas about how to proceed and will waft Mars impetuosity away with a gentle breeze. Mars wont know what hit him — all that oxygen will have gone to his head — but he will soon breathe in the energizing air and will grow stronger every day. These two will become a volatile duo to be reckoned with indeed. Once Mars realizes he is stronger and better with Libra, and Libra understands that Mars brings vigor and vibrancy into her realm, the bond they form will work while they companionably vie for their own agenda within the bounds of each others comfort zone. Decorating, courtship, marriage, florists, beauty salons, clothiers and collectibles will all be enhanced — whilst courage and the zeal to reach a goal will be put on the front burner. Finding gifts throughout this time span should have an extra special touch with the auspices of Mars in Libra — good taste abounds and also with the Sun in Scorpio until the 22nd, an ability to reach into each recipient’s mind and heart to find just the right token of affection.

Mars in Libra Love Style — Mars in Libra can work together as they both vibrate to a Cardinal profile (strong leadership, can get things done, Alpha mindset, a mover and shaker), fiery Mars can use Libra’s airiness to increase the volatility of his hot passions. Libra on her own, however, can be one cool cucumber — not willing to settle for anything but the most loving of connections. Mars can try to overwhelm Libra with his bombastic and ardent nature, and may succeed when there are other aspects in one’s chart that bring Mars more power (a Fire sign Sun, Venus in a Fire sign, or even a good aspect to Jupiter). So many ways our charts individualize our outlook, our desires, and our compatibility. Libra is more fastidious in looking for that someone special, able to attract so many different suitors, Libra is more likely to get flustered by having to make a decision among the throng. Mars in Libra will cut to the chase in order to weed out those not worthy and will only want the most comely, vivacious, elegant and passionate persona available.

Mars in Libra is charming, sometimes aloof, good-looking (but knows it), won’t settle for anything but the best, has a flair for humor (but might not be able to laugh at himself), is willing to work hard for his loved ones, wants only the best for his family, can appear superior and full of himself, might have a quick temper but will get over it soon, will honor his commitments, means it when he says –” ‘til death do us part“, can be a loving father and playful Dad, has high standards but might be too rigid at times, will always be loving, and enjoys showing off those he loves.

Keeping a Mars in Libra happy will be a balancing act for sure, mood swings may occur, and an avid interest one day may be ignored the next! It will behoove a partner of a Mars in Libra person to be flexible, aware, always well “turned out”, be able to communicate well, be prepared for a brilliant but often erratic mind, keep the home fires burning with warmth and love, make your home a haven of safety, loving kindness and open conversation. Passion will always be part of a Mars in Libra persona and their love will be a constant beacon of light. Consideration, comfort and caring will go a long way in keeping a Mars in Libra  happy and content. Let your love take flight on the wings of infinite hope but balance your life with good old common sense. Just Love!





New Moon Reminder — Moon in Scorpio — November 11, 2015

Just a quick reminder to write out your affirmations, wishes, dreams and desires on the 11th, the New Moon in Scorpio crests at 19 degrees of the sign at 12:48 PM EST. So all afternoon and the next day will be appropriate for you to write our your wishes. Those born near this date are entering a new Lunar phase — they will experience the positive vibrations of this New Moon for the next few months. So it is especially prudent for them to be sure to write our their most ardent requests.

In Scorpio we have passion, a determined attitude, and deep feelings about all things of a mysterious nature. Scorpios seek truth, and will search for answers whenever intrigued by any deception or long kept secrets. They will hone in on any falsehoods, charlatans or any underhanded on-goings. Still they can themselves keep secrets — whether their own, or for a friend.

Don’t let this New Moon pass without writing out your wish list — remember to be completely present when putting pen to paper — let your heart and psyche combine to find your most ardent needs. Allow the winds of the Galaxial ether to gather up your desires so they may become extant. Bring all of your ideas to the fore and send them into the magic of imagination and optimism where dreams can come true.

Believe in the power of wonder and revelation — believe that you deserve to be happy. Peace!


New Moon in Scorpio — November 11, 2015

This month’s New Moon crests at 19 degrees of the sign Scorpio at 12:48 PM EST. A Scorpio Moon increases our feelings and passions, we may find our emotions are much more sensitive or powerful than usual. Scorpio is such a deep and evocative sign, that many of us shy away from its intensity. Our duty is to embrace each and every sign in order to use the unique qualities of their nature. Each sign has a dwelling place in our chart and we must look to the House it inhabits to see what kind of input we will receive from it’s placement therein. We are given these tools to help us in our daily lives, just knowing where the Moon is each day can show us how to modify our response to outer stimuli. Knowing that the Sun will be in one Zodiac House for a month at a time gives us the knowledge to be able to adjust to anything that is going on within that area of our realm.

Working with the Universal flow of Planetary movement will enhance our experience during our lifetime here on Earth. Knowing just a few elementary facts about how the Planets affect us will give us an edge in living our lives to the full, and can help us avoid any negative interactions that might appear. With the New Moon and Sun in Scorpio we may find we will be contemplating the upcoming Holiday season, remembering past times of joy and perhaps disappointment — we may hark back to those childhood days when everything seemed beautiful and carefree. Now that the onus is on us to create and convey those  magical moments for our children and families, we sometimes get overwhelmed with the process and forget the ultimate goal. I always try to remember that no matter how crazy and hectic it seems during the process — it always somehow comes together and our Holiday is full of love, magical moments, laughter, joy and thankfulness.

With Mars soon to enter Libra, and Venus already ensconced there, we will have their energy, passion and love to spur us on. These two working in concert will help us to be practical, perhaps even have a detailed plan, and will keep us moving forward with love to our ultimate goal for the Holidays. Breathe in the eclectic vitality of the Planetary aspects and use them in a positive and helpful manner to get all of your chores completed with an elegant (Venus in Libra) and competent (Mars in Libra) way! Those born the last week of November and of February will seem to feel the pressure a bit more and be in flux. Sometimes just focusing on one day at a time will be the answer to our confusion. If you begin to feel overwhelmed, give yourself a good shake, sit in a quiet spot and close your eyes for a few precious moments. Envision the joy and happiness you bring to those you love, understanding that they only want you to be happy! Allow the aura of loving kindness to envelope you until you once again feel strong enough to move ahead. Accept help when it is offered, and you will find your pathway smoothing out with the new assurance you are experiencing. Sometimes the solution is to simplify — most of us don’t need elaborate decorations, expensive gifts or gourmet dinners — it’s the love we feel when we are with our families and friends that gives us the emotional quotient that says “This is the true meaning of the holidays.”

Since the New Moon is in Scorpio, we should wish for those things that we feel passionately about — think deeply of those things or ideas that will improve your life and the lives of your loved ones. Scorpio feels deeply — so perhaps you want more intimacy in your life, or you want to find the “One”. You may want to learn a new skill or master one you’ve been plying as a hobby, you also may want to have better control over your emotions — not wearing your heart on your sleeve, or flying off the handle at every little annoyance! Write out your affirmations in detail and with feeling — find a place to sit alone and meditate for a few moments — write out a few thoughts — put them away for a couple of hours and then go back to them. Do you like what you’ve written, or can you now see that they don’t fulfill your true desires. When you are sure your affirmations, wishes and dreams have been carefully thought out — write them down — think about each one as you write, and allow your spirit to envelop the entire area. Breathe in the white light of knowledge, hope and reason — agree to let the Universe send your thoughts into the Galaxial ether to become your reality. The magic is in your own psyche as you put forth your deepest desires.

The New Moon in Scorpio crests at 12:48 PM EST — so all Wednesday afternoon and the next 24 hours will be advantageous for you to write out your wishes. Give yourself this gift of hope and wonder — allow your most intimate and dynamic dreams to surface along your pathway in this lifetime. Renew, restore, regenerate your life with the mysterious workings of the Universe.

Happy Thanksgiving to all — Peace!

Venus Enters Libra — November 8th, 2015

Lady Venus Enters Libra on November 8th at 10:31 AM EST until entering Scorpio on December 4th at 11:15 PM EST. When Venus leaves Mutable Earthy Virgo for Cardinal Airy Libra, there is a definite shift in our emotional quotient — whilst in Virgo, Lady Venus was extremely fastidious and selective in those whom she would invite into her realm. After entering Libra, Lady Venus feels revived and restored with Libra’s penchant for finding the beautiful in all, and with her ability to draw towards her those admirers who will be enchanted by her whimsy! Lady Venus is endowed with a plethora of all that is loving, caring and open while she stays in Libra’s dwelling. Not to say that she is a pushover or too easy on those who would seek her charms — rather living in a Cardinal domicile, she is totally aware of those folks with whom it would not be in her best interest to encourage a relationship. More outgoing, flirtatious, with an inner core of unquenchable desirability — our Lady Venus revels in her stay within Libra’s boundaries.

However boundaries there are indeed — Libra requires balance — not something Lady Venus wants to think about — her ideas are often fabulous and over-the-top in style and substance. Libra will insist on keeping an even keel while Venus will want to take the helm and go full steam ahead. These two will find their way into a loving and beautiful companionship — they both are in love with love, and they both want that special someone in their life. Venus will be her most stunning and effervescent self while in Libra — the airiness of Libra bringing the champagne bubbles of joy into Lady Venus realm. We love Lady Venus in Libra — she finds beauty everywhere and give the benefit of the doubt to those she meets, but with the caveat that she is no shrinking violet in Libra. Being a Cardinal sign — allows Lady Venus to strut her stuff without any hesitation — as with all Cardinal signs they are the movers and shakers of the Zodiac. So Lady Venus has lots to work with when under Libra’s auspicious.

Libra rules the arts — music, drama — marriage and courtship, decor and clothing, and flowers. All areas where Lady Venus can shine and bring her comely awareness of the finer things in life. Venus is our Planet of Love and as such will always be thinking about companionship, friendship, and marriage. Her loving realm includes all those in her immediate family and those friends and acquaintances she gathers along her path. Seldom is Venus disapproving or dour in Libra, rather her highest qualities of humanity glisten with a Heavenly aura. She is love incarnate, wrapping her slender arms around all those she deems worthy to be loved — and loving indiscriminately those displaced persons who exist at the fringe of society. Venus is unconditional love — without rancor — without judgement, without condemnation. She aspires to the highest realm of loving kindness — bringing her love to all who have need of her ministrations. Lady Venus in Libra brings our ability to find beauty everywhere, to accept and embrace all manner of humanity, all the while aware of our inherent human flaws, She loves us without limitation.

While traversing Libra, Lady Venus connects with Saturn on Friday the 13th — any legal issue will be fairly judged and the outcome will bring stability. Also — it might be a good day to choose to go to lunch with a dear friend or colleague where you might find you have a lot more in common than you’d imagined. Later in the evening, a quick meeting with Mars might be confusing and intense, be patient and try to hear what’s really being said. Connecting with Neptune in an uneasy manner on the evening of the 14th might open your eyes to someone who is not worthy of your kindness. On the evening of the 17th a run in with the Sun in Scorpio might make waves for Lady Venus, just keep yourself balanced and remember this too shall pass. A square to powerful Pluto on the evening of the 20th may bring strong feelings to the fore — take a deep breath and hold your tongue — you don’t have to take back what you didn’t say! On the 23rd, an opposition to Uranus may disrupt what you thought was stable and reliable — but now find is in disarray — stay calm and reassess what is going on — and make adjustments as necessary to find a solution. You might find it’s time to release a toxic relationship in order for you to move forward and evolve into your best self. Be aware of excess in everything you think you want — an underlying issue will come to the surface, and you will find what you thought was true was just a facade. Steady and safe may sometimes seem boring, but life is about more than just fun and games. Use common sense when stretching the boundaries of your goals and desires.

The Full Moon in Gemini on the 25th will make for an active and interesting Thanksgiving Holiday week — remember that karmic family love is always the source of our stability and solidarity — enjoy being with your loved ones, allow petty issues to flow away, and remember the joy and love you’ve shared over the years. Reach out with congeniality and a genuine love for all within your realm. Eat, drink and be merry while with friends and family, the month quickly comes to a close, and the Holiday busyness begins. Your Venus in Libra tastefulness will allow you to find just the right gifts for your friends and family — and remember — the gift of yourself and your time might be what everyone wants the most. Until the 4th when Venus slips into intense Scorpio, you will have exquisite taste in all that you choose — once ensconced in Scorpio — our deepest passions will be stirred and we will be concentrating on looking our best (and perhaps sexiest) for our Holiday parties! Relish the time that Lady Venus is in Libra — beautiful, thoughtful, intelligent, elegant, delightful, amusing, and living life to the fullest.

Hint — find your Venus in Libra love while shopping at an upscale mall, at church, while attending a musical, at the florists, dining at an ethnic restaurant, looking for new furnishings, at the beauty shop, at a museum, while taking an art class, wandering on a country lane, at a flea market, buying Holiday gifts, having a massage, at a wine bar, at a cooking class, or at a Holiday party or wedding!
