december 10th—our composed lady on the hoof

Well, well, well, tomorrow, December 10th, at almost precisely Noon EST, Venus will be ingressing from Sagittarius to Capricorn.

Cardinal Earth.

How does the Planet of Love fare in this environment? And more importantly, how will WE fare with her here?

Honestly, I think she is perfect for this time of year.

She will help soothe the fiery bluntness of Sagittarius Sun and Mercury and lend a stabilizing force to the off-the-wall schemes of Aquarius Mars.

Venus is our planet of socializing and attraction. She (along with Luna) is our resident master of the feminine mysteries.

Her moving through the 10th sign of the Goat signals a desire to be in control. And, being ruled by Saturn, she intrinsically knows how to plan, organize and execute all the multitude of festivities happening right now.

Venus Capricorn is all business, but with the grace of femininity needed to soften the edges and create a jubilant ambiance.

Her recent journeys through Virgo and Libra give clue to how she will feel to us during her Capricorn stay.  The Goat has Virgo’s Earthy practicality, as well as Libra’s Cardinal nose for initiative.

It is the best of both worlds combined to help us juggle the wrapping presents and long commutes and endless decorating.  The disastrous changes of schedule and maddening family relations.

Aphrodite will remain in the 10th sign until January 3rd, so even New Year’s will be under her precise care.

She is a gift from the Heavens.  One that will potentially alleviate some of our holiday stress.

october 15th – 19th—tipping the scales

For the remainder of this week, we will see a pile up of planets in the relationship sign of Libra.

Edward-Robert-Hughes-Painting-022The Sun, Venus, Mercury Rx and the North Node are all conjunct within 5 degrees for a number of days.  Together, they form sextiles with Leo Jupiter and Sagittarius Mars.

If you have personal planets or points from 19°-25° of the Cardinal signs, this has your name written all over it.

This is the will to socialize and spend quality time with friends and loved ones.  It is animated conversations and pleasant evening get-togethers.

Optimistic and fun.

Gregarious and lively.

Brilliant costumes and autumnal attire. Deep, rich color and crisp backyard fires.

Swirling dances in the fallen leaves. Laughing and music. Ripe apples and fat pumpkins.

Any early Halloween parties scheduled now aren’t as sinister as they portend to be by October’s end.  No, these are charming Fall soirees full of allure and elegance.

Enjoy.

october 12th-14th—still smoldering

The Kite formation along the Libra/Aries Nodal Axis is still up in the heavens sans Aries Uranus and the Moon.

girlwithtreeman-029This subtraction takes the erratic emotional tinge off and allows the Libra Sun and Venus to be buoyed by the generous spirit of Mars and Jupiter.

When happy, there are none more gregarious than Leo and Sagittarius!

The precision of the Kite’s tip is aimed directly at the North Node at 19° Libra, bringing our past warring to the triumphant forward peace-time of Cardinal Air.

All the fiery initiative to balance and create the future lasts a short while longer. As Mars moves out of tight orb with the South Node on the 15th, the grand-Fire-trine slowly begins to dissipate.

Don’t panic though—all the intentions created and further fueled during last week’s Eclipse will manifest within the months to come.

This has simply been the planting.

october 10th—let the Crab do it

contemplation-039So, I am considering the transiting Sun and Venus to be conjunct, since she is within combust range at 4°.

That being said, if you have personal planets at 10°-15° of the Cardinal signs (especially Cancer) then I wanted to give a heads up to Libra Venus’ T-square with Capricorn Pluto and Aries Uranus.

This is initiating energy and it demands action.  Otherwise the tension may be downright unbearable.

As I said above, where Cancer resides in your chart is the ‘out’ of the situation, with the themes and requirements of the specific house needing attention.

Venus/Pluto/Uranus is throwing a microscope on our relationships, what and who we attract and our fundamental ways of relating in general. Unpredictable occurrences may be popping up and past issues, long dead, may be zombie walking back into our periphery.

Cancer is the answer. Given the specific archetype of the planet or point, the Crab’s house is most likely in need of some TLC—work it there and watch the other areas fall into step.

october 10th—moon adventures through Taurus

moonqueenOn the 10th, the transiting Moon pulls some energy to your Taurean house throughout the day.

Early morning around 8 AM, she inconjuncts Pisces Chiron and Libra Venus to form a lovely Yod.  These three conjoining point to the ability to release emotional wounds through balancing and beautifying the area occupied by Taurus. Turning pain into artistic expression.

Next at about lunch time, Luna forms a second Yod with Sagittarius Mars and the Libra Sun.  This is a much more action orientated event. Drawing power from the Full Moon’s Kite formation, the Moon filters the fiery will to act of Mars/Sun to work, albeit emotionally, on the sector of your chart dealing with self-worth and esteem.

Lastly, the Taurus Moon opposes Scorpio Saturn late in the evening, applying the breaks to the day. Emotions will seem heavy and worrisome, though the silver lining is always impeccable form through Saturnian discipline and patience.

The yin/yang is well-balanced and splendid—passive beauty of the morning leads to assertive spirit in the afternoon.

october 8th—total lunar eclipse—bloody fire in the sky

Wednesday is this month’s Aries Full Moon.

And oh boy, is it a doozy.

For this post, I have compiled a rabbit hole of links to all things ECLIPSE—astronomy and astrology—as well as a couple points by me, tailored to this particular event.

Enjoy.

october 7th-12th—giving the fire some backbone

Arthur-Rackham-Illustration-042The Kite between the grand-Fire-trine, Sun/Venus/North Node and Uranus/South Node crystallizes on Tuesday, the 7th.  The Sun’s end of the opposition along the Nodal Axis is sextiling Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo.  The Moon is in Aries and well on her way to move into position for the Eclipse on Wednesday—of which I will post seperately.

Kites allow us to access the treasure trove of contained energy in a grand-trine.  This particular event is bringing the immense power of a Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse into the frey.

The universe is giving us notice it is time to move forward.

So, in this post, I’m gonna break down the new ingredients that make up the Kite formation.
