the lady takes a dip—jan. 27th – feb. 20th

Tomorrow morning, the 27th, the Goddess of Love joins the God of War in the sign of the Fishes.

Warwick-Goble-Vintage-Illustration-067Venus is very comfortable in the watery embrace of Pisces. Here she can fully surrender. Become lost in all that has come before and all that will ever be.

One of the Planet of Love’s roles in astrology is to attract people and experiences to us, according to the zodiac sign she is traveling through.

In Aquarius, she was seeking the original rebellion coupled with the idealistic reformation.

Now, she has moved on to Mutable Water and nears the other side. She is readying herself to drift beyond the Neptunian veil, to dissolve into the mist. To slip untroubled into the nothing.

Oh, alright, but, Lona, what does any of that really mean?

Well, for one thing our hearts get a bit softer and we can become more empathetic to our surroundings. Soaking up the whims and fancies of others who cross our paths. This may be a positive if you are a hard-hearted doer. Or it may prove precarious if you already grapple with over-sensitivity.

Indeed, poetic kindness and fluid grace may render us more vulnerable than usual—again if it is needed, then so be it. Otherwise, the next 3 1/2 weeks may prove troublesome (only to become fundamentally more hazy when the Sun ingresses on February 18th).

Another potential could be that our imaginations become a glittery fog of seraphic musings. Creativity engulfs us in a daydream shawl of mystical romanticism. Beautiful wisps of meaning traced into the fabrics of our collective psyches.

It could be a gentle time or one of needed extra self-protection. Trust yourself to know which side you fall. Trust also that the people and experiences required to fulfill the murky requests of the Fishes will be drawn to you and yours.

During the final days of Winter, Pisces is the tender succor which alleviates much of the season’s icy grip and floats us softly toward Spring.

mars into pisces—jan 12th

Today, Mars ingresses to the dreamy, discarnate waters of Pisces.

Warwick-Goble-Vintage-Illustration-002This is a marked shift from the detached intellect of Aquarius, so let me break it on down.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. The ending of the whole shebang. The omega.

Here is the doorway to the other side. Here we leave behind this realm to begin a new journey in another. Here is where the soul of one meets the souls of the many. Here time is obsolete, we are set adrift across the infinite eons.

Neptune, the sign’s ruler,  takes all the solid stone of the material world, all the absolutes of the mind, the passions of the spirit and surrenders them to the evanescence. Nothing remains except compassion and bliss.

Meanwhile, Mars is the planet of War and rules our will to action, our get up and go. He symbolizes what you desire and how you most likely will go about getting it.

With Mars in a Water sign, the emotional side of being is heightened. How we feel becomes paramount in influencing what we do.

Yes, the Warrior takes a break to navelgaze instead of charge headfirst into battle.

Pisces Mars is gentle and unassuming. Mild mannered, introspective and wrapped in imaginative fantasies. Quintessentially mutable—adapting to surrounding impressions like a fluid chameleon.

Physical energy can easily dissipate like drops of rain in a puddle. And for the time Mars occupies the 12th sign, we may all experience difficulty getting tasks done. Things will seem just out of reach, disappearing before our eyes. Slipping through our fingers.The fog swallowing whole afternoons and hours dissolving into the abyss.

This passive action may prove very frustrating for the many of us who want results and tangible progress. Others will find this ethereal dreamscape a balm that soothes the over stressed nerves of recent holiday weeks.

Either way, the God of War will reside in Pisces until the 19th of February.

december 14th—wishing on a star

Warwick-Goble-Vintage-Illustration-046Sunday, the 14th, newly ingressed Venus Capricorn sextiles the God of the Sea in Pisces.

Neptune in easy aspect with his lower vibration, the Planet of Love, means smooth sailing on the waters of this holiday season—at least for the weekend.

Yep, when these two meet it portends wishes really can come true.

Wait a minute, you may think—stodgey Capricorn is wayyyyyy too uptight for loosey goosey Pisces Neptune.

Disaster ahead!!

No, not really. Quite the opposite.

Pisces fantasizes and Capricorn, the builder, champions those dreams into reality.

Water and Earth are wonderful for one another in just about all cases and this is no exception. Venus and Neptune are far more than happy to play their parts!

Where there seems to be little hope, the next few will be rife with unexpected turn-arounds in many a desperate situation.

Everyday miracles abound.

the universe bids you to have some FUN!

 

At almost precisely 6:30 AM CST, on Saturday, November the 22nd, the Sun perfects his conjunction with the Moon, shortly after moving from Scorpio to the 9th sign of Sagittarius.

While most of us slumber, he passes over the Scorpio/Sagittarius cusp to immediately start a new Lunar month at sunrise, at 0º.

The very next day, the asteroid Chiron in Pisces turns direct at about 5:45 PM in the evening!!

Folks, this is a crap ton of Mutable energy swirling about the Heavens.

Flexible, adaptable, malleable!!!

What exactly does the Archer and the Fishes have to offer us?

Let’s see .  . .

just a lady with perfect aim

ladywaterfallOn November 16th, Venus moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius. Our lovely Goddess will remain here until the 10th of December.

Alright, the Planet of Love has been intertwined with the Sun for weeks now. When she steps across the cusp from the 8th to the 9th sign of the Archer, I will consider them ‘unconjunct’.

While in Scorpio, Venus was dark and sultry. Emotions ran high and the stakes ran higher.

But now she moves to the sign of the Archer and things are going to get a little more chipper!

Yay!
