Easter Horoscope

With Easter upon us, and more people fortunate enough to have time for themselves, family activities, eating lots of chocolate or the religious significance of the festival, I want to explore what planetary activity is to the fore at the present.

There are five planets in Aries, a cluster of energy which is absolutely rare, due to the presence of Jupiter and Uranus in this sign. Jupiter will return in May 2022 but Uranus won’t be returning for over 90 years, so you get my drift…REALLY unique. And ironically, Uranus is about being original.

Now, Uranus not only moves very slowly it is also subject to a five monthly retrograde each year, which reinforces its plodding journey through each sign. Because it is newly arrived in Aries it is currently stationed at 2 degrees. Each zodiac sign has 30 degrees, so early days! Venus arrived in Aries on the 21st of April and along with Jupiter are joined in Aries by Mercury and Mars.

About Venus

Venus is the planet that most people associate with being that bright and sparkly star, easily spotted in the sky at night, or from an astrological perspective with love and romance. Yet Venus brings many, many other influences to bear.

It is also linked to the arts, creativity, beauty, fashion and design. Perhaps less known is its link to money. Of course which zodiac sign Venus occupies will have a great bearing too, along with any angles or aspects it is forging to other planets or fixed positions.

Venus in Aries

As Venus has just moved into Aries, and as it gets a toe hold, let’s explore what this means. Firstly she will be in this position until the 15th of May. If you have a new born during this period, this child will have a particularly pleasant and friendly manner, and is going to be popular too!

Because of the energizing characteristics of Aries, this influence can have a bearing on us all during this period. If you like someone, you are probably going to be proactive in getting to know them. However, Venus has also pulled up alongside the more erratic influence of Uranus.

Venus conjunct Uranus

Now, if you have this planetary aspect in your Natal Birth Chart (where planets are located at birth) you probably enjoy quite a lively romantic life, and an original take on food, fashion and art. You are capable of expression of form, in very unique and original ways. But your attention span may not be terribly high, because new experiences turn you on, and around your sex life, the thrill of the chase, especially.

However, Uranus is the planet that influences freedom and independence, so subjects can be prone to sudden full-on attractions, but which quickly burn out. Love in general can be rather unpredictable. Unusual relationships may be made, and in a romantic context, perhaps even an open relationship forged.

Now this particular conjunction, where planets are side by side will be exact, on Saturday 23rd April. However its influence will be felt now, and will be felt through to early next week.

How will this pan out in the here and now? Well, it can see some outspoken scenes – especially around all relationships based on affection. People can be much more spontaneous than usual, but in a romantic context, things can be full-on, but then full-off. It just depends on how this influence impacts on your own zodiac sign, and how it influences your own natal chart.

By Easter Sunday, Venus also moves into a square with the potent powers of Pluto and this aspect will last through to Friday the 29th.

Venus square Pluto

Now this can really be a very challenging aspect. If people have this in their natal chart, they can prone to use flattery and charm as a well of achieving their own aims.

This can be linked to business, to money or to gaining sex. Manipulation is common place. False bonhomie can be used to mask true feelings. This is the aspect of the disingenuous, bar none.

Easter Horoscope – conclusion

Taken in the round, the emphasis of Aries energy in the heavens, can lead to some bright and bubbly exchanges over the weekend, but there can be intense scenes too. Mercury which has twisted backwards for three weeks, goes direct on Saturday 23rd, and this will lead to greater clarity and less confusion or glitches. Yet if you think back over that time, underlying weaknesses may have come up, and been sorted out.

Love can also be full on for those lucky enough to be in the throes of a brand new tie. Will this last, that is another matter. Perhaps it’s a case of enjoying the excitement whilst it lasts.  And yet with Venus Squaring Pluto, there could be some awkward scenes in existing ties. If you are offered money, sex or any other incentive, think if there is a hidden catch, or the other person can gain from you. Also be conscious of your own motives.

If you have never had your own natal birth chart erected, and would like to know more about where the planets were placed when you were born, yes even Venus and Uranus, you can obtain a FREE one from me.

Shamanism…

If you could watch the panoply of history unfold it is very likely that you would find
So what exactly is it that a Shaman does? To a degree this depends on the culture in which he or she finds themselves but they all work in realities distinct from the Western world. Furthermore, any insights or knowledge they gain as a result of this is brought back and put to use in the day to day world. Shamans tend to see nature as an integrated whole; animals, plants and rocks all have a ‘life’ and whilst on a Shamanic journey they can interact with these energies.Khagdaev1

Accessing a journey can take different forms, some can be quiet and meditative but others are reached by energetic dancing, singing and drum beats, or imitating the behaviour of the animal whose sprit is to be vital during the journey. Australian Aboriginal Shamans believe in using crystals to facilitate journeying as they are understood to be solid pieces of light. Shamans in certain cultures such as those in Mexico use naturally occurring drugs to travel to their destination, these are not taken for recreation but with reverence and great respect for the source that produces them. Many Shamans favour special costumes when they are working such as an animal pelt or feathers, these echo the characteristics of the spirits that they hope to meet.

A Shamanic journey has been compared to lucid dreaming. The Shaman interacts in the alternative universes they visit just as they would in this, they can think, plan and communicate with its inhabitants, however, this does not mean the situation will develop according to some pre-existing script; journeys can be pleasant or distinctly unpleasant according to the reality they are in and its independently minded inhabitants. Apart from the problems encountered in other universes, Shamanic rites can be very painful, dangerous and/or scary, Shamans might be respected but this respect could also be tinged with fear. Perhaps this explains why Shamanism was seldom a career choice but a role forced upon an individual marked out by fate; as in Siberia. This might be a physical trait, a medical condition or a family tradition – although in something of a break with the past modern Western Shamans do decide to follow this path themselves.

So, next time you watch a documentary or read about a strange and exotic culture, remember that your ancestors and theirs were not so different. Indeed, they trod very similar spiritual paths.

27th March Birthday Horoscope – Mariah Carey

Birthday Horoscope 27th March  45-year-old birthday gal Mariah Carey’s career has been a rollercoaster ride. In the 90’s, she was a hit factory but by the noughties, ill health and a lack of sales seemed to have turned the dream sour.

Birthday Horoscope 27th March

Then in 2005, Mariah began making hits again. By 2012, she had something to sing about as she was ranked second on VH1’s list of the “100 Greatest Women in Music”.

Today sees the Libra Full Moon. Now people keep sending messages saying they had read other astrologers saying that this was going to be a really portentous Full Moon, and like all Full Moon’s it may well bring to the surfaces issues, we or someone close to us, would rather sweep under the carpet. But this one also sees the Sun exactly conjunct with Venus, and also Mars continuing its terrific angle to the go-getting energies of Jupiter. So what is there to worry about?

Libra Full Moon opposite Venus and Sun

Well, the Venus opposition can highlight those relationships which are not working very well, that are devoid of true sincerity, meaning and honesty, but equally this can encourage us to work at the ones that are, that little bit harder. Libra demands fairness, equanimity and mutual respect, look to build these qualities, or if you have them already to appreciate them. Venus also governs the attraction of money, and materialism. Don’t be kidded by superficial niceties, splashing cash on trash, can prove to be an empty experience.

How was your day yesterday? Were you as dreamy as I was? Of course the Moon aspected Saturn yesterday, but from Virgo. Hopefully today will be a whole lot less zonked out for this space cadet! And with Mars starting to spark brilliantly with Jupiter, and this being go-getting aspect of some repute, it is all to play for. The only thing to guard against is over confidence! Yet the Sun and Venus remain nicely close together, and the Moon in Virgo, will by midnight have passed into Libra.  To discover how this will unfold for your zodiac sign please join me for your FREE Daily Horoscopes.

23rd March Birthday Horoscope – Joan Crawford

Birthday Horoscope 23rd March They don’t make movie stars like they used to, and Joan Crawford is a point in case. The star of Mildred Pierce, was a controversial character and frequently exchanged verbal vitriol with her fellow thespians.Joan Crawford - 1936 - Hurrell

 

Birthday Horoscope 23rd March

Joan adopted five children, one of whom, Christina, wrote Mommie Dearest – which accused Joan of physical and emotional abuse. Joan Crawford died in 1977.

Daily Horoscopes 23rd March

Mars and Uranus are exactly conjunct or side by side in Aries today. This combination can certainly bring more volatility to bear – especially with the Moon in the fire ruled Leo too. There may be a strong desire to do something completely random today, and if this means breaking the chains of routine, good for you. But equally moods can be combustible. It can be hard to adhere to rules and regulations, and rash, ill thought out behaviour can have serious consequences. This is a shot first speak later aspect, so careful.

Superstition: Horse shoes and luck…

If you live in Europe, America or Australasia you will no doubt have come across the notion that horseshoes are lucky. This widespread idea so ancient its origins have been lost and even how it works seems to vary from place to place.

0000000052360_600_0One legend has it that The Devil saw a horse running over cobbles the shoes it was wearing sparking against the stone. The Devil was so impressed he demanded a blacksmith make him a pair too. Unfortunately, The Devil found his new footwear painful and told the blacksmith to remove them. The wily craftsman said he would only remove them if The Devil swore never to enter a home with a horseshoe above the door.

In the UK the shoe is usually hung with the opening facing upwards to keep the luck in, in contrast in other countries it is placed with the gap downwards. Sometimes in the UK the shoe is slightly tilted so the bad luck can run out whilst the good luck stays put. Furthermore, many claim the most fortunate horseshoes are those that have been worn by a horse, if you find one so much the better – bought shoes are said to be less effective.

In Italy the direction of the shoe is not seen as so important what matters is where it is placed – at the side of the door so it can be touched as one enters the building.

So, next time you are wandering in the country why not keep an eye out for a discarded horseshoe? If you find one it could just bring you some good fortune. For your Daily Horoscope for today please join me.

Venus also arrives in Aries today. I have seen people with this placement in their Natal Horoscopes to be very proactive when it comes to hunting down a partner. But deliciously Venus connects right away with both the Sun and Neptune, and creates a wonderful shimmering lustre which may, if you are lucky enough to born today, like Reese see your love life pep up quite a bit over the next year.

The Sun, newly arrived in Aries and yet to fully unpack its suitcase retains a link with the sign it has just departed with a semi-sextile with Neptune. This is set to go on until this time next week. But what does it mean? Well Neptune can soften the more egotistical tendency of the Sun at this point. Reminding him and in turn us that its not what we do that counts but how we go about doing it. Famous and perhaps the greatest English football manager of all time Bob Paisley famously said “it’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice” and this aspect is a gentle reminder of this.

Horoscopes 26th August 2013

Horoscopes 26th August 2013 Start the week by balancing your drive, with attention to detail and determination. As the Sun angles to Saturn on Thursday, and provides a background for much of the week, this can help to counter the hazy and debilitating opposition between the Sun and Neptune, which is exact.

Horoscopes 26th August 2013

Mercury too remains in opposition with Neptune, although past the exact point, and it too starts to connect well with Saturn. All this is ironic in a way, because whilst Neptune will be doing it’s worst in terms of bogging us down Saturn is kind of saying, stick to your original game plan, and don’t be knocked off course.  Learn more by watching your Weekly Horoscope with my FREE VIDEO forecasts for every zodiac sign.

What none of us can do is control the influence of those we interact with and someone can be particularly hard to pin down. It can seem the more you push for answers the more evasive they can seem. And also, genuinely there could be some misunderstandings which are not the least bit sinister. We might need to make allowances for the fact that some confusion can reign, but be determined not to let it us affect us too much. For your Daily Horoscope for today please join me.
