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 Aquarius — December 7th 2016

Lady Venus enters the sign Aquarius on December 7th at 9:52 AM EST, a change that has the power to infuse our delightful Venus with enthusiasm, a feeling of freedom and a little bit of anxiety! Indeed, after her stint in Capricorn — our Lady Venus is more than ready to kick up her heels and let her hair down! However — with the unique Planet Uranus in charge of this sign, there is more of the unexpected and surprise than our sensitive Lady can sometimes handle. It might take Lady Venus a few days to get used to the new cadence of the Aquarian effervescence. There is a major point of light, however, in that Aquarius is a most humanitarian sign, and that will appeal to our Lady Venus. It is here in this venue that there will be harmony and agreement. Our Lady Venus in Aquarius folks have a sense of duty and karma that makes them aware of anyone in need — they are drawn to those by an inner radar from their lives long ago. Compassionate and empathetic they feel much more than most of us — and they can be overwhelmed by their sense of duty. They must find a balance within their core in order to not become too fatigued — good nutrition and exercise are important to their well-being.

Lady Venus in Aquarius is everything new, fresh, and innovative in fashion, language, outlook and ideas — it’s like a baby seeing the world for the first time and everything is a wonder to behold. Every leaf, color, texture, person, shape, element, animal, form is to be examined to see what it is and what it can become! How lucky are we to be able to use our Lady Venus in Aquarius to see our World with new eyes! Lady Venus in Aquarius gives us the opportunity to review and  analyze everything we’ve ever know to be true! Is our World as we think it appears, or are we missing out on some subtle and elusive truths that have been hidden to our jaded senses? Open your eyes, your heart and your spirit to re-evaluate just what you are observing — feel the presence of the Sun’s warmth, the coolness of a breeze, the aromas surrounding you throughout the day, Be impressed by Nature’s wonder and glory in the natural shape of leaves, flowers, soil, the ocean and lakes and streams — the beauty of a butterfly, a bird, a chipmunk — a new babe — indeed any of the wonders of this World we take for granted — see them through the eyes of a child! See the beauty, artistry, and uniqueness in all things man-made and natural.

Be inspired and awed by a passing train, the lines of a car, the shape of an ice cream cone, a tree, a stone or any of the unimaginable number of things that we encounter every day! Bring your every sense to the fore and find something beautiful each and every day that gives you a sense of awe and inspiration! Also with Lady Venus in Aquarius — we have a quirky sense of humor that will ease our everyday routines, feel that perhaps improper inner ability to find the absurd in the mundane.

Lady Venus in Aquarius will bring us the ability to accept those who are different than us — to feel compassion for the underdog, to find the amusing and absurd in our everyday endeavors, to raise our consciousness to new heights, and will allow us to feel a freedom of choice and the ability to envision a brighter future.

Lady Venus in Aquarius can seem aloof, a bit outre, and able to disentangle themselves from any uncomfortable situation — but, their hearts are loyal and true, their minds are always active, and they keep their deepest feelings hidden because of their sensitive nature. That wall of indifference is just a safety barrier to keep secure their delicate interior. They can fall for a sob story and be taken advantage of with ease — and as adults they have realized this capacity in their psyche — hence their sometimes brash or even abrasive outer shell. Get to know your Lady Venus in Aquarius — and find that soft, feminine and oh so sensitive and delightful person. They can be your best friend, soul-mate, Mom extraordinaire, sister, daughter and mentor. Always ready to give of themselves, our Lady Venus in Aquarius is a human-being of wonder and delight.

Hint — Find your Lady Venus in Aquarius at a flea-market, at the laundromat, at a food pantry, reading to toddlers, at a farmers market, shopping for hand-made jewelry, at a consignment shop, shopping at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, at a garage sale, at a book store, having her tarot read, having her nails painted with Holiday colors, driving a four-wheel automatic or standard shift car, camping, looking for Native American jewelry, sitting on a park bench having lunch, volunteering at an animal shelter, buying organic produce, sky diving, and watching the Sun rise at the ocean!

December’s Astrological Activity — 2016

December begins with the Planet Mercury going into Capricorn on the 2nd, perhaps making our Holiday preparations a bit more practical and down to earth. Especially as Mercury turns Retrograde on the 19th lasting well beyond the Holiday season, we will have to watch our budgets, and be aware of delays and any transportation issues. If traveling during this time period — it will be wise to call your provider to see if there have been any alterations in their schedule. Weather is always a consideration during winter months, so be sure to follow any safe driving rules to assure you arrive at your destination hale and hearty and ready to party!

So we begin a busy month with a lot of energy being expelled with the Eclipses being triggered — indeed any issues activated by the September Eclipse may be brought to the fore — and you will have to wait until the February Eclipse of 2017 for anything to be resolved. During times when families gather, there may be some underlying issues that haven’t been resolved — do your best to remain upbeat and joyful — allow any negativity from the past to fade away and bring a new resolve to get along with those who may not have always been your allies. This is such a good time of year to let bygones-be-bygones — the freedom you feel from not having to seethe at the dinner table is worth any effort.

The Full Moon on the 13th in Gemini crests at 7:06 PM EST and stands at 22 degrees of the sign, creating a surge of hyper-energy that may overly frustrate us in our quests during this time of year. Stores may be crowded, traffic will probably be dreadful, and patience will be the “word-of-the-day” if we are to accomplish anything useful whilst this cantankerous pot is being stirred. Keep your cool on — and know that whatever has been forestalled will be able to be fixed.

The Winter Solstice arrives on the 21st with the Cold Winter Sun entering Capricorn at 5:45 AM EST! The Ancients venerated this time of year as it represented the completion of the harvest, of gathering their crops and  preparing their vegetables and meats for the long dark time ahead. It was for them a time of tranquility and respite — yet harsh conditions — they tended their stock, chopped wood for warmth and cooking, and hunkered down in the quiet time before they would once again be starting their circle of life. Prayers and incantations were offered in thanks, and in hope that the Winter would not prove too cruel. They kept close to their hearths and slept with warm and cozy comforters piled high upon their beds, waking to the cold light of day — they would crack the frozen ice upon the well and trek back home with the water for all their needs for the day. Their animals had to be fed and their barns cleaned — hands cracking in the cold and breath whooshing forth in steamy clouds, then freezing upon their beards and eyelashes — finally, chores done, coming into their keeping room where warmth and hot food awaited them. Reading by candlelight or oil lamps, it was early to bed for they would have to arise soon in a cold, steely dawn.

And so the cycle continues — we are lucky however, to have central heating, indoor plumbing and easily purchased foodstuffs. But for the strength and resolve of our forebears — our lives would not be so seemingly easy today — we all should take a moment to honor and thank those pioneers, Pilgrims, settlers, farmers, immigrants and forerunners of all our lives. Wherever you or your families originated — it was the tough and hearty folks who toiled through so many hardships to get us to this day! I am humbled by the imagination, invention, foresight, hardiness and hope that kept them going day after day — year after year. A Solstice is a time of stillness and contemplation — take that moment to be one with your ancestors — feel their spirit within you — touch the eternal rhythm of life that is you.  Find that spark of immortality within your soul.

Our New Moon in Capricorn crests on the 29th at 1:55 AM EST at 7 degrees of the sign, bringing an even more practical outlook for our year ahead. The Planet Uranus in Aries also turns Direct today offering us a renewed sense of purpose and hope for the future — perhaps in medicine, or technology. On the personal front we could find revamped plans coming to fruition  in unusual or unfamiliar circumstances or places. Opportunities may appear, but be postponed until the New Year is well under way — be patient if things seem slow — and keep your eye on the ball.

Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn face off and remind us to take our responsibilities seriously, also to see the beauty in the everyday — the uniqueness in the ordinary — and the worth in every human. Also there could be some relationship developments when we speak up for ourselves, let others know just what it is we want and don’t back down. Know your own needs and desires — and don’t settle for less than you are worth — this can be the theme at work too — you know your own worth — don’t let naysayers keep you from believing in yourself. Ignore those who would try to put you down — realize it is their problem — NOT yours! It’s time to take a stand for yourself and your loved ones — be strong and sure of yourself — there isn’t, never was, and never will be again — another YOU!

As in a previous post — Retrograde Mercury will put a spanner in the works if you allow it to happen — paying attention to detail and carrying on with your day-to-day work will keep you on the straight and narrow road to success. Rx Mercury in Capricorn runs from December 19th 2016 to January 8th 2017 in late Sagittarius — take this time to solidify your plans, work on future projects, and review your long-term goals. However — try not to implement anything new or untried until after Mercury goes Direct next year.

On the 12th the Sun in Sagittarius is in good aspect to Uranus in Aries stimulating creativity, starting the work week off with a surprise, allowing us to dream big dreams and enhancing any travel. The 15th has Venus meeting with Neptune stirring our dreams and making us aware of those in need — you could also find that perfect gift for that special someone. Mars will enter Pisces on the 19th giving our passions a sensitive turn — we will be more receptive of others needs and be willing to help. Those macho men who seem so aloof will be brought to tears with an emotional meeting or act of kindness.On the 24th Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries raising our consciousness and morality to new heights in surprising ways. Christmas Day — the 25th finds a plethora of pleasant aspects with Lady Venus in the fore meeting with Jupiter, Uranus and Saturn — softening any hard edges, bringing a charm and beauty to the day, allowing us to revel in our familial groups, and making us realize how blessed we truly are today. On the 26th Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries — bringing awareness of the Holiday’s truths — giving us the opportunity to accept the love we are given, the recognition we have garnered, the ability to envision, and the joy of being! Uranus goes Direct on the 29th bringing a more positive and imaginative outlook for the future. The Sun in good aspect to Neptune on the 30th gives us inspiration, intuition, and inflames our inner spirit to greater heights than ever before. Bathe in this divine light as it refreshes our souls.

New Year’s Eve has the Moon in inscrutable Aquarius — so we can look forward to the New Year with a bit of a quizzical eye — and perhaps a bit of mystery will surround you. You may have a psychic experience if you are open to the forces that will emanate. You may have a loved one who is trying to reach you through spiritual or supernatural fashion — be open to any occurrence that may not seem to have any logical reasoning behind it.

Be safe — be the designated driver — or call a taxi for anyone who seems a bit out of control — enjoy the revelry with all of the promises of tomorrow — and may the year ahead exceed all of our expectations!

Peace

 

 

 

Mercury Enters Capricorn — December 2nd 2016 — Retrogrades December 19th 2016 to January 8th 2017

The Planet Mercury is a sort of bellwether of our day-to-day activities — when moving forward things seem to go a bit more smoothly than when it is in Retrograde motion. Depending on what sign and Zodiac house Mercury is in will determine how much it will affect us as individuals. Check your chart to see where Capricorn lives and that areas realm may be more impacted for this time period.

Mercury in Capricorn isn’t a happy camper, Mercury is quick acting, impulsive, active, and energetic — whilst in Capricorn some of his spirit is tamped down with Capricorn’s more somber, slower and moderate responses. However, Mercury in Capricorn can allow us to be more considerate and thoughtful especially at this time of year when we all are out looking for Holiday gifts and planning our celebrations. If you are in charge of preparing the Holiday festivities for your family or friends — Mercury in Capricorn can make you more fastidious and careful in your spending and more practical in your not overdoing any lavishly over-the-top ideas you may have — but may not really be able to afford or be able to actually bring to fruition. Indeed, Mercury in Capricorn will keep you within your budget with more thoughtful and practical ideas and outcome.

Sound a little dull — not with Mercury’s facile mind and witty thought processes — you will find clever and useful ways to implement your concepts with more individuality and personal attention to detail. The bottom line of Mercury in Capricorn is to be aware of all mundane and “real-world” possibilities and move on from there. You will be able to make your Holiday’s merry and bright with a little more thought and some home-grown common sense!

Now — that said — we find that Mercury in Capricorn will turn Retrograde on the 19th at 5:55 AM EST, moving backwards until entering Sagittarius on the 4th of January at 29 degrees and then turning direct on January 8th at 28 degrees of Sagittarius at 4:43 AM EST, reentering Capricorn on the 12th at 9:04 AM EST. Whew! As you can see — Mercury will be Retrograde throughout the Holidays — so we will have to account for packages not being delivered — delays in transportation (if you are traveling — be sure to keep checking with your bus, train or airline for changes in travel times) — messages may be missed or misinterpreted, so always double check on meeting places and times. It’s just another hiccup in what is usually a busy, hectic and overwhelming time for many of us. The message from Mercury is as always — be prepared — be aware — and be willing to change your plans, mind or ideas at a minutes notice. Allow yourself to just chill if things seem to go awry — take a deep breath and go-with-the-flow!

What you can do is make sure your car is prepared if you are going to travel that way — be flexible in the way you might have to adjust your dinner time or number of folks arriving — and remember — it is the Holiday Season — a season of joy, happiness, and frivolity for young and old. It is a time for renewal, hope, strength, and family togetherness. Don’t let anything interfere with your connecting to loved ones, finding new meaning in what is going on, and find your own bliss within yourself.

We manage to get through Rx Mercury periods at least 3 times a year, we weather these “storms” because we have faith in ourselves, our world and the integrity of our family and friends.

Family times are so important — to reconnect, to belong, to share the love and caring that has gone into your lifetime. Keep the unconditional love you hold for all of your loved ones to the fore during any slight setbacks or glitches that may befall during Mercury’s Rx period — for this too shall pass, and we will find that those frustrating delays were only a few moments in a lifetime of wonderful happenings. Focus on those positives in your life and realize how blessed you are with all that you have been given.

Enjoy the Holidays with all of the hectic, silly, upsetting, fractious and difficult happenings — they will make great stories to share with the youngsters in a few years!

Blessings

New Moon in Sagittarius Reminder — November 29th 2016

There is so much energy being expelled into the ether with the New Moon in Sagittarius that we all should take advantage of this Universal gift to put our thoughts, ideas, wishes, desires and affirmations down on paper so that they might be entered into the harmonic flow of the Cosmos where they will take hold and begin to manifest for you now! Our thoughts, prayers, and yearnings for certain Earthly things can become your reality with a little forethought. Our Spirit has so much power to influence our current lives by giving us that incentive to move forward  with our lives to bigger and greater quests.

The Sagittarius Sun/Moon combination is an optimistic and enthusiastic force for all that is good now and for the future. The Centaur (Sagittarius emblem) is shooting an arrow into the future in order to find the best pathway for us to follow in this lifetime on Earth, as we try to reach our karmic goals for ourselves and our loved ones.

Take a moment after the New Moon crests at 7:19 AM EST — to write out your very own list of wishes — all day long the power of these Lights will shine upon your sincere requests. The Holidays are upon us with the busyness and hectic planning that we all seem to get caught up in doing. Relax in knowing there is a higher authority that will help us with our choices — to find your path within your inner being. Allow yourself to accept the generosity of the Universe and all the forces of Nature that are at your beck and call.

Believe in magic — in spirit — in sanctity — and in love!

New Moon in Sagittarius — November 29th 2016

If you only write out your affirmations once a year — this is the New Moon that will bring you the most joy! The New Moon in the sign Sagittarius cresting at 7:19 AM EST at 7 degrees, is full of upbeat energy and vigor, with jolly Jupiter as a ruler nothing is off the table when writing out your wishes and desires! Of course, it is always advisable to use the natural realm of Sagittarius to get the most bang for the buck! The Jupiter and Saturn sextile that has been active most of the month has helped to give us an upbeat outlook for the Holiday season.

Although today, many folks are working too hard — whether because overtime is required or because their job has become more inclusive as the workforce in some areas has been shrinking. People are stressed and tired all the time — not a good scenario for a pleasant and relaxed season of celebration. So — perhaps a wish for more personal time, more family time or extra appreciation would be in order. Of course — a desire for a raise in pay is also OK! Most of all — I think we all need to try to get back to the basics — remembering what this life we have is really all about — our evolving to become better human beings, loving and caring for our families, and being there when friends or acquaintances are in need of solace. To become all that we envision — we need faith — we need hope — and we need love and the help of a greater power!

To me, the sign Sagittarius is like a huge puppy with an eagerness to please, lots of love to give, but not necessarily aware of how awkward and sometime clumsy they are! They give big sloppy kisses and huge bear hugs that almost knock you over, but they are loving and loyal. They love their “people” without any boundaries or any conditions, and they are willing to give anyone a chance no matter what others might say. Almost always ready to defend the underdog — our Sagittarius brethren are the salt-of-the-Earth — and a wonder to behold!

It behooves us to take advantage of this wondrous combination of the Sagittarius Moon and Sun riding together in the Heavens to help us help ourselves. Especially now that Neptune in Pisces had returned to forward motion — we can breathe in the spirituality and magic of its incredible depths of emotion and sanctity. Neptune can take us to the highest peaks of human existence by offering us true devotion to a Higher calling. Feel the pulsation of Neptune’s pathway through your chart (and life) as its miraculous light shines brightly onto our Earth, bringing us to the knowledge and understanding of our true entities, our spiritual and otherworldly personae who have the knowledge and truth of the ages within.

Manifesting our own reality is as easy as believing in ourselves, realizing our own power, and tuning in to the harmonics of our World in all of its complexities. Accepting ourselves as Spiritual Beings having an Earth Experience to hone our human abilities to the highest form possible. Using our knowledge to move forward on our evolutionary pathway. We all have that spark of sacredness within us, of piety and holiness — our spirits cry out for goodness, kindness and love!

Allow yourself to partake of the Universe’s bounty in writing out your affirmations, wishes and desires on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius! It is as simple as writing about your deepest desires, your silly wishes, your serious affirmations! Be it good health, financial security, or a happy family life that you want, you can begin the process of putting your thoughts onto paper in the form of earnest requests that will improve your life and the lives of your loved ones. Take a few moments to think quietly about what would really help you to help yourself — and in simple yet clear words — write out your ideas, wishes, hopes.

Sagittarius is usually such a optimistic, adventurous, and spontaneous sign that it opens a world of possibility! Also Sagittarius has realm over legal matters, travel, higher education, and also the search for true meaning, truth, sanctity, intuition, and an inner tranquility. All of these can be part of your own list of entreaties. Since the Sagittarius New Moon is at 7 degrees, anyone who has a Planet or birthday on or near this date will be entering a new lunar cycle, that can help to bring smoother sailing through the next few months.

This month’s New Moon in Sagittarius crests at 7:19 AM EST on the 29th — so all day is perfect for writing out your list — and this New Moon will carry power over the next 24 – 48 hours. Don’t miss this opportunity to become the ruler of your own realm — write out your affirmations in order to begin your new journey of exploration and adventure! The Universe will help in getting your voice into the Galaxial mists where it will be heard and acted upon. Thoughts are actions in the halcyon miasma of the transcendent and divine!

Peace and Goodwill to Men!

SUPERMOON — Full Moon in Taurus — November 14th 2016

This month’s Full Moon in Taurus is being touted as a Supermoon — and there is historic reasoning behind this title — as the Moon will be at its nearest point to Earth since 1948, making it appear as it rises extremely large and bringing more tidal pull into the mix.  The Full Moon crests at 8:53 AM EST on the 14th at 22 degrees of the sign. As with all Full Moons, we are cautioned that there will be more energy expelled sometimes in a negative manner, as the Moon rules our emotions, domestic ongoings, and short journeys (think commuting to work), water sports (swimming and boating), and short term planning. All of these can be influenced by any Full Moon especially when in this phase.

That said, all Full Moons have the ability to interfere with our daily routines with some unexpected happening. Usually these incidents are short term, traffic tie-up, some minor family emergency, someone’s actions or words that make us angry. However, for those few who may have a connection to this Taurus Moon at 22 degrees there may be more impact. Check your Zodiac Chart to see in what House Taurus lives to give you a more direct idea of what may transpire in your own life.

Those living near the coasts may experience higher tides that can create some inland  flooding, since our own bodies are made up with a large water component, we too, may feel out of sorts — antsy — be having vivid dreams — upset for no discernible reason. These are the effects of any Full Moon phase — this time, the Moon is in Taurus — a Fixed Earth sign — and may bring more power as Taurus seems to have some effect on our domestic affairs, drama, social lives, and real estate — and being a Fixed sign it seems that it becomes more difficult for people to let irritating or frustrating things go, thereby creating even more controversy and disagreement.

We always caution calmness and common-sense during a Full Moon day, and especially if it occurs during a weekend when folks may be out and about at parties, clubs or other social events where excess alcohol consumption is transpiring. As often noted — the Full Moon’s most intense activity is several hours ahead of it’s actually cresting  (which would be prior to 8:53 AM EST on Monday the 14th), although those perceptive folks who are sensitive to the Moon’s phases may feel the impact for several days ahead of time.

As this Full Moon is the last aspect made until the Moon changes signs into Gemini at 8:24 PM EST (Moon void of course) — this Monday may prove to be one of those unproductive days in which nothing is able to be accomplished without superhuman effort. It might be difficult for us to avoid confusion and delays in our usual daily tasks, and therefore we must be aware of this element and try to accept any upset or misunderstanding with a grain of salt. When the Moon changes signs things will become clearer and more able to be handled with more competent action and better able to be brought to a successful conclusion.

The next “Supermoon” won’t be until 2024 — so we all can breathe a sigh of relief that these occasions are few and far between! Stay calm, be the voice of common-sense, and be safe!

Peace

Lady Venus Enters Capricorn — November 11th to December 7th 2016

Lady Venus enters Capricorn on the 11th at 11:55 PM EST, ending her lively and adventurous stay in Sagittarius. Leaving Sagittarius is always a little sad for Lady Venus as she becomes the flirtatious and frisky seductress with a sprightly lilt, and where she enjoys the freedom of going her own way. Now entering Capricorn Lady Venus is brought up a little short as she realizes that life does have its serious moments. Indeed, Earthy Cardinal Capricorn is a no-nonsense persona who believes in hard work and moving toward a goal. Lady Venus isn’t always on board with this philosophy as She enjoys being able to playfully get Her own way with her womanly wiles. But Capricorn has her number and insists that she behave in a Lady-like manner at all times — there will be a scuffle or two whilst Lady Venus tries to win over staid Capricorn with her endearing ways, but Capricorn is a no-nonsense advocate who won’t be swayed by sweet words and enchanting eyes. Indeed, while in Capricorn, Lady Venus becomes the epitome of womanhood — regal, stately, comely (in a not too brash way), and ultimately the Mother/Madonna of exquisite taste and decorum. The glue that keeps our families together, the caretaker of future generations, the chauffeur, PTA chairman, financial household keeper, cook, comforter in chief, boo boo healer, psychologist, voice of common-sense and sanity, and forever friend, lover, and partner — always our touchstone for love and understanding — Mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother — Woman!  Our Lady Venus in Capricorn is above all an icon of all that is womanhood — Doctor, Lawyer, CPA, CEO, Movie Star, Writer, Teacher, Nurse, and that highest calling of all Mother!

Once they get their priorities in line, this combination of zeal and winsomeness will win over anyone who enters their galaxy. Often seen in women who have made it in the business world, the medical field and/or the exciting domain of the entertainment industry — they are the movers and shakers that can reach the highest realms in any field. Also, they are the capable soccer Moms, the elegant Grandmothers, and the Matriarch’s of families who lead, teach, guide and advise the generations to come. (An old adage states — “Educate a man and you educate one person, educate a woman and you educate a whole family.“) Awesome just isn’t a big enough word to explain how amazing those who have Lady Venus in Capricorn truly are in their impact upon society. Ground-breakers, mentors, caretakers and lovers — they can do it all — and while wearing high heels!

Lady Venus in Capricorn has a brief meeting with Mercury in Sagittarius on the 13th in the early evening, making conversation sprightly and bringing a subtly ingenious air with Venus using her feminine wiles. The Full Moon in Taurus crests at 8:53 AM EST, perhaps bringing a hectic note to our workweek’s beginning — staying cool and paying attention to your own issues will be the best action to take. You may meet up with some opposition, try to take any annoyance with a grain of salt. On the 19th, Lady Venus is in good aspect to Neptune in Pisces — perhaps you have plans to visit a gallery, a movie that will make you cry, or just spend the day with compatible friends. The 25th brings a double-duty hit with Venus conjunct Pluto as we wake up, that makes us recall vivid and thought-provoking dreams — and shortly after, Venus is square Jupiter in Libra giving us some qualms about our lover or some perceived antipathy from others. Lunchtime of the 26th may help us to get over our snit of yesterday by meeting up with an ally who always has your back  The 29th has the New Moon in Sagittarius and Venus square Uranus in Aries spiking our desire for freedom and a carefree ability to do our own thing!

December 2nd finds Lady Venus a bit fractious with Neptune, making us remember the Holidays are soon upon us and we need to choose those special gifts for our loved ones — use your imagination to create that one-of-a-kind gift that will last in the recipient’s memory all year long. Entering Aquarius on the 7th at 9:52 AM will enhance our artistic abilities, make us want to be free of any control, and may find us interested in the unusual and unique, and may stimulate our abilities in telepathy or ESP. Lady Venus in Aquarius shows us how we can love all of our fellow humans, how caring we can be, and is always ready with compassion for the underdog — She shows us our better selves and how we can evolve into our highest form of humanity.

Find your Lady Venus in Capricorn Love — at your bank, while picking up dry-cleaning, buying a practical pair of hiking or snow boots, when getting your watch fixed, trying out a new ethnic restaurant, at a Farmer’s Market, watching a chick-flick, flying business class, doing hot yoga, being a volunteer at an elementary school, working in an insurance company, selling real estate, having your taxes done, and being introduced to her by your Mother!
