october 6th-8th—part 2: who’s got a lighter?

So much going on up above, it’s kinda ridiculous.

Read part 1: here.

With all the talk of the grand-Fire-trine and the eclipse at the Full Moon, I think it needs to be stressed that the major player in all this business is the Libra Sun.  He will be the focal planet of the Kite formation, he will be on the North Node of the Nodal Axis.  He will be absorbing energy from Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Uranus.  He is ground zero.

Whichever house 15° Libra occupies is YOUR ground zero.

october 3rd—beauty of a day

On  Friday the 3rd, Venus in Libra will inconjunct Pisces Neptune and also, trine the Moon traveling through Aquarius.

splendidnebulaFirst, the inconjunct.

This is the third and final interplay between Aphrodite and the Sea God in their  inconjunct/opposition/quincunx dynamic for the year.  Friday is your make-up test to incorporate the lessons of these two planetary guides.

When Venus and Neptune dance, you are being asked to get in touch with the glamorous side of spirituality.  Neptune is a large outer planet, therefore he acts upon Venus, the faster inner PERSONAL planet.  Venus attracts and Neptune dreams.

september 29—nice, nicer, nicest

Venus is the Goddess of Attraction and Relating.  Libra, an Air sign, is ruled by Venus, these qualities are his bread and butter.

On Monday, Aphrodite will move from Virgo to the 7th sign of Libra.  Both Virgo Venus and Libra Venus  are finely elegant ladies, the latter is simply more comfortable, nay insists upon more,  flirting and chatting.  Virgo Venus’ main goal was to attract health, diet and exercise into the conversation.

Now there is a change—we will attract harmony, fairness and grace to our relationships at this time.  Where it felt good to take care of our routines in Virgo, it is now going to feel good to take care of our partnerships through pleasing the other with the Planet of Love’s ingress into Libra.

So, shall we get acquainted with the Goddess of Beauty here in the first sign above the Descendant?

Ok, one way to get our heads around this lovely deity is to understand that Venus also rules Taurus.

What, might you ask, is the primary difference between Libra and the 2nd sign?

Well, it is the difference between Earth and Air.  Taurus rules money and possessions—our value as earners and merit through self-esteem and self-worth.  Cold hard cash and solid confidence (Taurus) vs.  intangibles such as popularity and social decorum.  Libra also rules possessions of  a kind.  But they are the relational variety.  Libra Venus’ worth is intricately tied to the wealth he feels or not in the exchanges of sentiment and cerebral ideas with others—family, friends, partners, the stranger at the grocery store.

Venus rules what makes us happy.  Libra rules diplomacy and marriage—keeping the peace and balancing the needs of both partners in a coupling.  Libra Venus needs pleasant interaction and intimate connecting with others to stay in balance herself.

Man, she just wants everyone to be nice and happy and most of all to like HER!!

While in Libra, Venus will catch up with the Sun by mid-October and spend nearly a month cutting a rug through the signs of Libra and Scorpio with the Luminary.  It will be double or nothing hobnobbing, social niceties will be at their peak.  Libra needs to mend shattered connections and bring fairness to situations where justice is lacking.

 And boy, is she ever good at it!

No other sign is made or broken by relational success or discord.  Peaceful bonds with the other are of utmost importance and we will all gravitate in the upcoming weeks to this mantra.
