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…

 

Lady Venus Enters Taurus — April 29, 2016

Lady Venus Enters Earthy Fixed Taurus on April 29th at 7:36 PM EST (add one hour for DST). Having been a bit overwhelmed in active and passionate Aries, Lady Venus welcomes her stay in Taurus — like old friends meeting after a long separation, they embrace each other with warmth, deep love and understanding. Lady Venus shines in Taurus — not as the Fabulous Fashionista, but rather the elegant model in the little black dress with pearls, the soccer Mom who runs the PTA, the sophisticated mature woman on the cover of Town and Country magazine in her tweeds and hounds-tooth, the genteel grandmother with a knowing smile and a twinkle in her eye! All classically groomed, believing in themselves, and kowtowing to no one — they know their worth and are comfortable in their minds and bodies.  Taurus imbues Venus with an air of confidence and power, she can become anyone she desires with determination and a eagle eye on her goals. Don’t get in the way of a Venus in Taurus woman– she will mow you down! Earthy, sensually sexy, sensitive and spiritual — our Lady Venus in Taurus can be the love of your life!

Perhaps this passage of Venus in Taurus will help to offset the skirmishes of Mercury’s Retrograde period since they ride together in Taurus all month long — until Mercury goes direct in Taurus on the 22nd at 8:20 AM EST, and Venus moves into Gemini on the 24th at4:45 AM EST. Venus meets up with Mercury at 16 degrees of Taurus on  the 13th at 2:11 PM EST — perhaps engendering a cozy conversation with someone special or helping to clear the air about some controversy. Using the positive timing of the Planets can help us traverse our pathway on Earth with a bit more confidence and control.

On May 5th Venus has a minor dust up with Mars that may impact the rush hour — so keeping an even temper will serve everyone best and it is a fast moving transit that will dissipate quickly. Our May New Moon on the 6th at 2:29 PM EST crests at 16 degrees of Taurus, helping to bring some stability to the on-goings of this month’s Mercury Rx. The 9th brings a nice meeting of Venus and Neptune at breakfast time that can bring about a wonderful morning meeting, have you awaken after a vivid dream that gave you new insight and an uplifting emotional feeling of well-being and hope for the future. In the afternoon hours of the 10th Venus trines Jupiter in Virgo to brighten our outlook, bringing some good luck and a sense of a job well done. The next day (11th) a dinner time meeting of Venus and Saturn in Sagittarius might have us stuck in rush hour traffic or realizing we haven’t made the necessary adjustments to our monetary accounts and we may find ourselves in default. Fortunately Venus and Pluto trine on the evening of the 13th to bring a flurry of deep feelings to the fore, and we may think about making an important commitment. Wednesday the 18th finds Venus in touch with quirky Uranus in Aries engendering feelings of excitement and exhilaration — or since it is in the very early morning hours a sudden wake-up call that gets our adrenalin running. The Full Moon at 1 degree of Sagittarius/Gemini on the 21st at 4:15 PM EST will be conjunct Mars allowing for a little more energy to be expelled. For those whose birthday is near this date they may want to be a little more cautious and watchful about what is going on around them. Avoid anyone who seems out of control or in an agitated state — and be pro-active when driving — in order to circumvent any issues. The Sun opposes Mars on the 22nd exacerbating and extending the already hyper-activity of the Full Moon at 1 degree Sagittarius /Gemini!

Mercury in Taurus goes into direct motion on the 22nd at 8:20 AM EST — but it will take a few days for it to resume a normal forward motion — Lady Venus will enter Gemini on the 24th at 4:45 AM EST giving us a merry month ahead.

Hint — Find your Lady Venus in Taurus at an upscale boutique, in a real-estate office, buying silk scarves, at a jewelry store, at a bull-riding contest, at a beauty shop, buying make-up, at the theater or a drama festival, in an art gallery, buying flowers, at a music recital, looking for new furniture, having clothing altered, trading stocks and saving for her future, relaxing at a spa, dining at a steak-house, and enjoying time with family and friends.

 

 

 

 

Affirmations — Jone Victoria — November 10, 2008

AFFIRM:  to state or assert positively; maintain as true.

Affirmations are the Cliff Notes of prayer. Used as a positive mantra, they directly align your intent with Universal Energy. Writing out an Affirmation is a snap with a rewarding snap-back. I prefer writing them out. Writing helps me to concentrate on the words and makes my thoughts more concrete.

Be clear on your intent.

Choose one that is brief and to the point.

Write it out the same time each day. (I write mine 18 times a day in an interference free environment.)

After writing your Affirmation, forget about it for the rest of the day.

There are plenty of Affirmations to choose from on the Internet, books, or just make one up. Here’s a few to get you started.

I live in Supreme Light.

My life is in Divine Order according to the Master Plan.

I accept what Higher Consciousness Grants me.

I release those who are not meant for my well-being according to the Divine Order and I am released in return.

Wealth and Success.

My mind attracts inspiration from all positive sources.

I place myself within the Highest Realm to divine answers and solutions to my problems.

All answers are within myself.

I am an irresistible magnet attracting  ____  to me.

 

Jone was much more resolute in doing Affirmations on a regular basis than I ever could imagine being. She believed in her innate power to influence her life’s path with the help of a greater force of loving guidance. She could tap into that Universal knowledge and consciousness with ease (and years of self-control and study). I was always in awe of her abilities in sizing up people and situations with merely a glance. Her years of teaching her craft allowed her to hone her natural talents and brought out her capacity for healing, both the body and mind. I believe her daily Affirmations helped her to enhance her God-given gifts in order that she could connect with those who needed to be healed both physically and emotionally. Jone gave of herself, her talent, and her love throughout her lifetime. She is missed!

 

 

 

New Moon in Aries Reminder — April 7th 2016

Don’t want anyone to forget this fire-charged New Moon in Cardinal Aries that crests on the 7th at 6:23 AM EST (add one hour for DST). It begins our Zodiac’s New Lunar Year and sets us up to reap the rewards of our affirmations, dreams, wishes, and desires. The process is simple — during the day and the following 48 hours you can write out your deepest wishes — the vortex of energy being created with the New Moon will impel your requests or affirmations into the ether.

As your thoughts become solidified within the Galaxial mists, they take a spiritual shape, form and force in order to have an impact on our lives here on Earth. You can influence your own future and pathway throughout this lifetime’s journey. Our thoughts and beliefs can produce those emotional affects we call miracles!

Plan to write your list in a quiet moment — meditate for a bit — and feel the power move from your thoughts down your arm and into the pen — write your affirmations succinctly, lovingly, and with total belief in that what you are requesting will better your life and can truly be manifested.

Blessings

New Moon in Aries — April 7, 2016

Our New Moon enters lively Aries on the 7th at 6:23 AM (add one hour for DST), and it crests at 18 degrees of Aries where it will meet up with dynamic Uranus! This super creative and passionate energy will inspire us with new ideas and perhaps a few “off the wall” notions of how we can get things moving. Don’t act hastily, but do think about any “brilliant, unique, or dazzling” thoughts you might have and let them simmer in the back of your mind, while you probe the practicality of the pro’s and con’s! You may be surprised that there is substance and a very rational logic behind your thinking. With Pluto in Capricorn slowing into a Retrograde mode on the 18th we will be looking within our psyches to find what we can do to improve our future and perhaps mend some issues from our past.

Along with Rx Pluto we will be facing a Rx Saturn and Mars (Rx 17th) in Sagittarius, and Mercury in Taurus (Rx 29th) all going into Retrograde mode. This seems to be a long waiting period perhaps until late June when Mars will be moving forward, when we can commence working in earnest on our long-term plans. Of course, life moves on and we will have to address any usual or unexpected issues as they happen — just be aware that they might have to be revisited later in the year. Life is a series of ups and downs that we must learn to traverse with aplomb and perhaps a sense of humor in order to keep everything in perspective. Life is challenging, often arduous, and fraught with change — still we must concentrate on those wonderful moments when our happiness and sheer joy supersedes any ongoing upset. As that memorable quote says “It not the number of breaths we take — but the number of moments that take our breath away!” Try to live for those wondrous moment in your life — saturate yourself with the feelings you feel in those moments and store them away deep in your psyche to renew yourself and your spirit when things are not going so well. Balance, stability and patience will get you through all of life’s many passages with an inner knowing that this is your karma — this is your pathway — this is your life!

Now — the good news is that we all have the positive power to impact our own lives and the lives of our loved ones every month with the entry of the New Moon energy that flows outward in waves of ethereal wisdom and knowledge. We can tap into this vortex of Universal consciousness in order to bring our own desires, wishes, needs and affirmations into the ether and into our reality. With all of the Aries power and passion swirling around us at this moment, we can energize our lives and our innate beings with a magic that is beyond our understanding. Just know in your heart of hearts that our thoughts have a solidity and weightiness that can be picked up by the delicate and wraith-like vitality of the dynamism being brought forth by the Moon moving into Aries. The impact of this vigorous sign and aspect cannot be exaggerated — it is as if an uncontaminated and freshening breeze has dissipated all of the detritus of our lives and has replaced it with a clean slate of opportunity.

In order to use this new prospect of renewal we just have to write out our affirmations and wishes — especially those desires that will improve and restore our lives to balance and tranquillity. Of course, we can request any and all important things that will bring harmony into our spirit, our psyches, and our homes. We can also include any wishes or dreams for our loved ones in order to bring more positive and happy moments into their lives. With the Sun, Moon and Venus riding in Aries together, we have a powerhouse of Galaxial energy to work with all day on the 7th and for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Take your time in thinking about what would make the biggest difference in your life right now — concentrate on those things that will bring about the most constructive changes and write out a detailed affirmation about the issue. You can choose any idea, thought, insight that may help you move in a more positive direction (new job, more money, love, vacation, better living conditions, new home, getting along with family, finding new friends, better health, a calmer mind, a busier social life, being appreciated, moving up in your field or company, feeling happier, getting out of debt, finding true love, letting go of bitterness, forgiveness — for yourself or others, letting go of anxiety, anger and resentment, allowing peace into your heart, finding a higher goal, — well — you get it — anything is on the table)! It’s up to you to find those wishes and desires that will fill the bill for you and yours. Find the time to carefully prepare your list — Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac so it’s a true new beginning for the Zodiacal lunar year ahead!

Make this your year to change for the better and find the truth of your lifetime here on Earth. We all have a specific journey throughout our short time here — most important will be our associations with family and close friends — our karmic past connections. Don’t denigrate the significance of each and every contact as they are here for a specific purpose in our lives. We are to here teach, learn or compensate for past transgressions or past favors as are they! There are no close connections that are random or accidental — these are our karmic ties from the past that we have positive or negative relationships with during our evolution in this life. It behooves us to try to make each connection as strong and loving and positive as we can. Those persons whom we cannot seem to stand, are probably the most important in trying to bring some stability and kindness into the fold. Still — we are merely human BE-ings — in flux — working towards our final evolution as the entities of light and energy we truly are — this may not be our final round of lives upon this Earthly orb — but we must try to evolve into ever higher and higher form as we seek that mystical goal of immortality! We are promised resurrection and reward — and I truly believe we will all achieve this lofty objective.

Peace and Love

Lady Venus Enters Aries — April 5, 2016

Alas! Lady Venus leaves spiritual and ethereal Pisces  (her hallowed haven) to enter bold and brash Aries on the 5th of the month at 11:51 AM EST (add one hour for DST). Our sylvan nymph of Pisces is perhaps  a little bewildered by this passionate Fiery Cardinal sign, she unobtrusively moves in quietly to create as little flux as possible. Yet once ensconced within Aries realm for a while, she metamorphoses into the sultry and sexy vixen who in truth, makes her a tiny bit nervous! No shrinking violet here — Venus in Aries becomes the siren, the enchantress, the sensuous coquette. Lady Venus in Aries knows her place in the Zodiac hierarchy and she knows what she can accomplish — and once she sets her flashing sensual eyes upon a goal, she is sure to reach it whilst she remains in Aries. Herein lies the issue — Lady Venus will only stay in fiery Aries until the 29th when she slips into staid and practical, but deeply ardent and amorous Taurus. So we must make our move while Venus remains in Aries in order to feel the enormous power of this dynamic Lady. She can move mountains, and will bring us the courage and boldness to go after our true love connection. Not fooled by false promises or superficial sweet talk — this Lady wants the real thing in love and in life — and She will have it!

Whilst in passionate Aries, our Lady Venus will have her own series of adventures by meeting up with unruly Uranus on the 22nd where she has free reign to create a loving atmosphere for all of us. Find your Aries Zodiac house and see what mischief our Lady Venus can get up to in order to get us out of our current passive or long-dead relationships. She and Uranus will shake up the status-quo in order to open our eyes to new people in our midst that we may not have realized are interested in a closer relationship with us. Even if we feel we aren’t in a position to start a new connection, there will be an overwhelming attraction that cannot be ignored for long. Indeed, you may feel quite lightheaded as your entire body is inundated with feelings you haven’t experienced before. This may be a positive karmic connection that has been simmering for some time, or a new acquaintance that just appeared into your realm. This attraction cannot be denied, and although you may find yourself in disbelief, this is your true soul-mate. Allow yourself to get to know just what this person has to offer — you may be surprised to find how well he/she already seems to know you. You may find yourself finishing each others sentences and realizing how many things you have in common. Let your guard down just a bit in order to find the depth and intensity of their feelings. This is a relationship that is meant to be — karmic, kismet, fated or destined — a true match made in Heaven!

Lady Venus in Aries is all things passionate, she loves art, fashion, food, beauty, speed, obsession, plain or fancy, necessary or just because — she reigns with an intensity of emotion that cannot be explained by we mere mortals. This Lady will throw herself into any project with abandon and exhilaration — she knows her power and will use it well. Never stand in the way of something a Venus in Aries truly wants — she can be a force to be reckoned with at any moment — not that she will ever be coarse or combative — no — she will use her feminine wiles and before anyone realizes — she has gotten her point across and her way in all matters.

On the 12th Venus in Aries trines Mars in Sagittarius sending sizzling ripples of passion across their respective realms — but also bringing a spiritual and deep understanding of the responsibilities of being in love. Combining two individuals into a true loving partnership will require that both have the others best interests at heart — that they are willing to immerse themselves into a whole — an entity of two minds, two hearts, two souls and spirits that connect as one! Also being able to maintain their own identity and persona, but with an empathetic understanding that they work together as a team. Can this perfection work in concert forever? Perhaps — but perhaps not — a long term relationship has a journey mapped out that entails both highs and lows, trials and tribulations, happiness, joys and sorrows. Yet — if the core is strong, there is a symbiotic cadence that manages to bring all unevenness into stasis time after time. A love like this is worth its weight in gold — a forever love is a blessing of the highest order — we all aspire to love and be loved in this way. May you all find the love of your life, and spread the joy and happiness you share with all whom you meet.

Venus in Aries then trines Saturn in Sagittarius on the 18th bringing a more practical and jaundiced eye on those who enter her realm. With Saturn in the mix, she is able to size up those whose intentions are pure and immediately sees through those with a negative agenda. She will be able to accept those praises that are true and meaningful — but she will soon show short shrift to those who only want a dalliance. You cannot pull the wool over a Venus in Aries individual — at least not for long. They have an uncanny ability to look into the heart and soul of those who would seek their company. Enjoying her meeting with Saturn in Sagittarius, she will have been able to choose the right candidate for her affections with ease.

Lady Venus meeting up with Uranus in Aries will be filled with exciting romantic suitors, perhaps too many — she will have to wait until she is no longer under the power of this erratic and unruly Planet before making a proper choice. Her head may be in the clouds of passion, but her feet are firmly planted in the real world of everyday living. No easy mark for the flamboyant or ostentatious, Lady Venus in Aries wants only true love and loyalty — and she shall have it!

When Lady Venus enters Taurus on the 29th, our outlook will change and our passion will be that of a stoked fire burning deeply within awaiting the perfect helpmate to ignite the flames of true love!

Hint — find your Lady Venus in Aries love at a sporting event, on a tropical isle, eating spicy ethnic food, buying sunglasses, at a speedway, shopping for fanciful headbands, at a circus, at the head of an important business meeting, at a job interview, driving or buying a red car, at a cooking class, buying hot sauce, enjoying sitting in the sun, buying bikini’s, running a Fortune 500 company!

 

 

 

April’s Astrological Activity — 2016

This April begins with Lady Venus entering Aries on April 5th bringing a very different and more vivacious experience than from her recent spiritual visit to Pisces. We must be ready to use our Lady Venus fiery energy in Aries as she is only in the sign for a short time moving into practical Taurus in the early evening of the 29th. Lady Venus entry into Aries is quickly followed by the New Moon at 18 degrees of Aries on the 7th, we have a lot of energy to absorb within a very short time-span. Our lives may be so busy we feel overwhelmed, we must learn to use this extra bolt out of the blue vitality to enhance our abilities in multi-tasking and enjoying the busyness of each and every day.

Especially as the New Moon will conjunct Uranus the Planet of the unexpected and change, we must be aware of our pathway and try not to veer off on a tangent that seems to good to be true! There will be ramifications worldwide — perhaps in the finance field, or with the influx of displaced persons flowing into the Continent. We may feel a little lightheaded as new details and interesting news stories are bandied about that might make us uneasy. The best course of action is to take a deep breath and concentrate on what is directly in front of us. Take one step at a time and limit the amount of minutiae that you allow into your realm. Keep a solid calendar of your needs, wants, and desires and write out your affirmations on the 7th in order to help keep you on an even keel. Any inspired ideas and forward thinking options for renewal may bring big rewards. You have the power to change your life for the better!

The Full Moon on the 22nd cresting at 12 degrees of Scorpio at 12:24 AM EST (add one hour for DST) will endeavor to encourage us to be creative and willing to share our innermost ideas. Open your heart and mind to seek those “off-the-wall” ideas that might have seemed unreachable — dust them off and reshape them in a more practical manner. With Mars Rx in Sagittarius there is the possibility that revisiting an old plan will trigger some new and fabulous ideas. Just be sure to dot all the “I’s” and cross all the “T’s”. Of course, the Full Moon also brings some anxiety and tension as it opposes Taurus which finds us worrying about our finances and any plans we have for spending. Caution is advised as Venus will conjunct Uranus on the same day — and we know how Lady Venus loves to shop! Better to steer a conservative course for a couple of weeks — if a large purchase is unavoidable, do your homework and find the best offer that you can. Later in the day the Moon is in good aspect to both Neptune (creativity) and Jupiter (bigger is better) — both Planets can find us wanting to have a big dream come to fruition. However, unless your finances are overflowing, be careful in how you try to bring this dream to completion. Again —  waiting a couple of weeks may allow you to find an even better bargain — patience is the key!

After the Full Moon passes, there is a period of time to relax and catch your breath in order to reconnect with family and friends — however — Mercury in Taurus will begin it’s Retrograde rotation on the 28th and will last until going direct on May 22nd. So try to get any important negotiations finished before the 28th or there may be delays. Retrograde Mercury will be stifled while in Fixed Earthy Taurus, indeed his sprightly aspect will be dimmed. It is, as always, a good time to revisit anything that has gone awry during the last month or so in order to “fix” any misadventures or issues. Of course, we all should back up our files, make sure our car is in order, and remain calm if there are setbacks. Since Mercury rules so many everyday areas, it always seems to create more angst and bumps in the road than other retrograde Planets.  We deal with this aspect at least three if not four times a year in different signs so it behooves us to take all of the glitches with a grain of salt.

Along with Mercury, Mars and Saturn will also be in Retrograde mode — we are advised to take our time in initiating any new or flamboyant plans — especially something that seemed like a wonderful idea in the wee hours of the morning. Allow yourself to look at those wondrous plans in the light of a new day, 24 hours may give you a new outlook and a more practical approach! Both Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius will help us look at the big picture, and find ways to improve our lot in life. There also may be some interest in the more spiritual issues surrounding us today. We may find our psyches enhanced with more compassion and acceptance of others who have different belief systems. You may experience a mystical force that changes your outlook on all things sacred and divine. Pluto in Capricorn joins the group of Rx Planets on the 18th which will bring more angst for large organizations and/or the government. Look to your chart to see what house Pluto in Capricorn is traveling in now. Depending on the house position, we can determine its effects upon our lives. Usually Pluto is a subtle whisperer of something we are contemplating, should be doing, or have been procrastinating in making a decision for a period of time. It may be time for a conversation with a loved one about their true intentions and their candid thoughts about a situation. There may be some hesitation to commit to a path that will inhibit their autonomy. Now is the time to push forward in order to find the truth. If you have been through an emotional roller-coaster ride, now may be the time to decide to get off. With Jupiter in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn we have a better opportunity to find a way to push forward with our agenda. With Jupiter in the mix there will be an element of good luck surrounding us — be aware of any opportunities that come your way — and be open to something new and exciting, but practical and well deserved.

With Venus in Aries, you maybe amazed to find a new romantic partner who is more compatible, loving, and will always have your back.New people will be entering your life that can change your perspective of yourself — allowing you to see exactly how strong and capable you really are. You might find this new “acquaintance” will reflect your inner beauty and compassion back to you, so that you can see yourself as others see you — warm, caring and full of heartfelt passion. This may be your “Aha” moment when you determine for yourself that you have more worth and value than you ever imagined possible.As the Sun enters Taurus you are more likely to insist upon determining your own way after much consideration and contemplation. You know yourself, and your strengths — you can achieve your ultimate goals.

On April’s Fool’s Day don’t allow yourself to get flustered or out-of-sorts with any hi-jinks that might be played. It’s all in good fun! The Sun and Saturn meet up on the 5th and can bring you rewards that are well deserved and will have long term value. The New Moon brightens the 7th with Aries energy spewing forth in order to begin a new lunar cycle for those born near this date. All of us can take advantage of the power of this Aries New Moon to enhance our lives by writing out our affirmations. The Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 9th may bring exciting news, brilliant ideas, and a passion for all that is new and innovative. Venus trines Mars on the 12th perhaps bringing new and karmic  meetings that will make your head spin. There will be no denying the attraction, allure and desire  between you! On the 14th Mercury (in the shadow time before Rx) trines Jupiter allowing you to make quick decisions about people and any happening that affects you. Moving on, Mercury trines Pluto in the wee hours of the 17th, allowing us to dig deep into our psyches to find what is truly important and what we really need — not want.On the evening of the 18th, Venus trines Saturn — letting us get a handle on a new acquaintance or being able to see the future results of one of our projects in a positive way. The Full Moon in Scorpio opposite the Sun in Taurus on the 22nd will make us take a close look at our expenses and how we use our resources. Later in the day, Venus meets up with Uranus and you may be swept up in an original adventure that will be a fun and interesting time. This may be the day you meet that someone who will change your life for the better! Mercury goes into Retrograde mode on the 28th making our lives just a little bit askew. However,  Venus will enter Taurus on the 29th bringing a more stable foundation for us to build upon.

April can be a month of personal growth, luck and forward motion in all areas of your life. Change is in the air as the Spring season gears up for new fauna and flora bursting forth in renewal. Enjoy this time of revitalization and replenishment — breathe in the fresh Spring air — find the beauty in each new day — and be good to yourself!

Peace

 

 

 

 

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra — March 23, 2016

On March 23rd at 7:01 AM EST (add one hour for DST) the Full Moon crests at 3 degrees of Libra. Since this is a Lunar Eclipse there will be more energy and a longer impact especially for those whose birthdays are in early Libra or opposite in early Aries. Libra is all about balance, and as the last day or so has shown our World seems completely off balance at this time. Political rancor and disorder, terrorist threats and bombings, an onslaught of needy refugees, war, hatred, anger and upset seem to be ruling our lives. We all are looking for answers, some kind of normalcy and return to sanity. Yet it seems we are in the throes of tumult and disintegration on a world-wide basis. Perhaps this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will help to bring some kind of balance between so many diverse issues if we all can take a deep breath and seek to calm these roiling waters of discontent. Where is the balance in our lives? All of us are not invested in this chaos and vitriol — most of humanity wants to live a good life and reap the rewards of trying to be the best person we can aspire to become. We want to help our fellow man as ourselves — most are caring and compassionate human beings who want to enjoy their lives and want others to have the same benefits.

I believe there is a constant need for balance in our lives and a need for balance within our World in order to keep our psyches on an even keel. With chaos raining down, we are in need of some deeper meaning in our lives. We long for a way to make sense of all the disruptions and deceit we are facing every day. We are being bombarded with negativity and it is up to each individual to reject those who are full of anger and hatred. Indeed each of us must find a way to lessen the angst and turmoil that surrounds us now.

Perhaps each one of us must make an effort to improve our own lives by keeping our relationships pure and wholesome — by forgiving those who we feel have offended us — by searching our own inner being to see where we can make a difference. As individuals, we cannot totally change those systems that are in place that just aren’t working — but we can find our compassion for one another, especially within our familial group. Maybe, just maybe by finding a way to balance our psyches and bring some semblance of loving kindness into the mix, we will start a small spark of light that will help to alter the negativity that now swirls around us.

Tap into the luminous energy and power of this Lunar Eclipse to galvanize and empower ourselves to find a better way of life. Libra is a Cardinal sign — one of the movers and shakers of the Galaxy that can help to motivate us to embrace the beauty and majesty of our World. Libra can allow us to “see” where we need to improve our interactions with our family and friends — possibly by improving our lives there will be a dynamic change that will flow into the ether to take hold and touch others of like mind. Just a subtle shift in the human harmonic may begin a new realm of accord and Peace. Love will always be stronger than hate.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Brussels — may they feel the love, empathy and hope that is being sent their way during these dark days of discord. In Light!
