Getting to Know Your Planets

17 May

hello-my-name-is1Astrology will always begin … and end …. with the planets.  They are the entitities that create forces in our lives and ultimately help to make things happen.  Since I’m a visual person, I’ve always thought of the planets as people.

I have characters in my head about how each of them operates.  Just like people – they have both good and bad characteristics.  They each have a purpose and work their “magic” a little differently in each of our charts.

Just for fun …. and perhaps because I’m in a “Gemini Mood” given that a lot of the planets are moving into Gemini or gearing up to get there …. I decided to help all of you get to know my “very good friends.”  For those of you that don’t know, Gemini is the talking sign and the one that likes to get social and mingle 🙂

No, I’m not a kook and I don’t talk to people that are not really there BUT I do have a relationship with each planet.  A good astrologer simply has to!  They would never be able to read a person’s chart unless they understood who the heck they were dealing with 😉

So just for fun on this Friday – here’s a little blurb about what each planet would tell you upon first meeting them :

Sun – “HEY my name is Sun and I’m here to get this party started!  Kick off those shoes and let’s party!!  It’s our time to shine and get to know each other.  I’ll tell you about ME first!”

Moon – “Dear, bring me a tissue as I can’t help tearing up! My emotions always get the best of me. Let’s talk about all our feelings.”

Mercury  – “I’ve just had a really busy day popping in and out of all of these places.  I’m excited to meet you and can’t wait to chat!”

Venus – “Darling – you are just beautiful.  I love your outfit, makeup and hair.  Is that a Louis Vitton your carrying?  I simply LOVE tasteful style! Let’s get to know each other by talking about all the things we love.”

Mars – “It’s TIME TO PARTY!”  Let’s get loose and party the NIGHT away!  Who cares if we break a few bottles along the way – you only live once!”

Jupiter –  “I’m having a GREAT day!  I love life and always feel super positive!  How ’bout you?”

Saturn – “Man – my life sucks.”  No  matter what I do – I just can’t get it right.  Let’s talk about all our problems.”

Uranus – “So excited to meet you – I love a blind date.  There’s nothing that makes me more giddy than a good surprise.  I also love getting to know about what makes a person unique – tell me what makes you different.”

Neptune – “I am simply loving these cocktails.  Let’s order a few more and get lost in each other.”

Pluto – “Yeah – I’m glad we got to meet.  Let’s get deep and talk about all our most personal secrets.”

Who would you like to meet this weekend??  I know I have my favorite picks 😉

Have a great weekend everybody!!!!

Astrology and Luck

14 Mar

luckWe all need a little luck every now and again and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up I started to think about this – planetary style!  Our Astrological Charts reveal when we will be lucky – or when an opportunity may find us.  Since I’m always eager to find good things in a person’s chart (including my own!) – I love coming across good combinations that could potentially bring something of a benefit to a person.

Natally (the placement of the planets when you were born) speaking, Jupiter and Venus are the greatest “gift-givers.”  When either is sparked in our charts – we could be granted all sorts of opportunities.  I also like to look at a person’s North Node and Part of Fortune – because those bodies also tend to give something beneficial back.  All of the planets (yes even Saturn and Pluto) can deliver opportunities and give us special blessings depending on how they are operating for you at a given time period.

Any luck to be found in your own chart will always depend on all the various placements in your chart.  However – for the most part when any of these “benefics” (as we call them in Astro language) is touched off – something beneficial could be felt.  With that being said- there is a caveat to beneficial sparks coming out in your chart.  Unless we are naturally lucky (and yes some people are just born that way – but most are not!) we’ve got to put in some work in order to reap the benefits of our lucky opportunities.

It’s also important to be open to what an opportunity actually is.  Some opportunities are a lot easier to see than others and sparks don’t always fly when they happen.  For instance if I got a big raise or won the lottery it would be clear that luck finally came around.  However, opportunity can come in other ways too – such as finding some peaceful moments to relax, being in the right place at the right time or meeting someone who helps you in some way.

prep meets opportunity

Following your chart can be incredibly beneficial because it can actually give you a “heads-up” of when your opportunities may find you.  Sometimes if you know they are happening – it may make you think of something awful with a little more positivity.   It can also give you that push to stay the course and continue to put in the hard work – despite feeling the rewards.

Luck will eventually come around for all of us at given points -and when it does you’ll be glad you put in the work beforehand.  Each of the planets could help us over the coming months however my favorite to look at is Jupiter since he moves the quickest.  Jupiter’s currently helping out Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.  Come the end of June – early July – Jupiter will enter Cancer and start helping the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces).  So here’s to all of us putting in the hard work and hoping for that lucky break to find us sooner rather than later!

Virgo Full Moon Ahead – With A BIG Twist of Pisces

22 Feb

whimsical-treeGet ready Virgos and Pisces – we’ve got a Virgo Full Moon coming up – taking place in just a few days on February 25th. Full Moons are always known for bringing things out or making things happen.  Sometimes people just act strange around this time …. for no apparent reason.  There is something to be said for the power of the Moon – her movements are quick and she has a real affect on our emotions.  I think this Full Moon in particular will be powerfully emotional since there is so much Pisces mixed in it.

When the Moon is full she highlights the sign she’s in (Virgo) and contrasts the sign she opposes (Pisces).  This Full Moon is going to really emphasize a lot of Pisces since we’ll have 6 planets in the sign.  YES I’m going to count Venus who enters Pisces only a few hours after the Full Moon is exact.

I actually think that Venus entering Pisces right after the peak is significant since whenever a planet is in the 29th degree it’s important.  It’ll likely bring matters of the heart ( Venus /Pisces) and practicalities (Virgo) to the surface since a Full Moon likes to light up things we’ve been hiding from (whether we realize it or not).

Jupiter’s also tied into this Full Moon and he sometimes can make us dive deep and question things since he’s a philosopher at heart.  Make sure to be open to any signs that may possibly reveal themselves as well as trust  your instincts – even if you don’t want to.  AND don’t forget to let your heart take over 😉

PS. Early degree Geminis will likely feel this one prominently too! Let’s bring it on – this Pisces is ready 😉

A Lucky Planetary Alignment is in the Works-This Could Be Some Luck At the End of the Rainbow!

10 Mar

This upcoming week is an exciting one for anyone interested in the planets – as well as anyone a little down on their luck.  There’s going to be a special combination that’s going to be in the works for a good part of the week (peaking on March 13th).  It’s called a Grand Trine and what that means is that three planets are all going to form a harmonious touch to one another. There’s actually four planets involved but I’m not here to make it complicated!

Now the exciting part about this is two of those planets are really lucky ones.  We call them the “benefics” or rather planets that can grant us benefits.  Instead of “friends with benefits” you can think of them as “planets with benefits” 😉  These benefics are known as Jupiter and Venus and they’ve been known to share many good things such as money and some long needed assistance of the lucky kind.

This special alignment is going to be happening in the Earth Signs which are Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo.  If you happen to have any planets that fall around 9 degrees in any of these signs – then your pot of gold may be waiting for you in the next several days.  It’s definitely an exciting thing to think about!

While my chart isn’t impacted by this – I’m happy to think about all the people that will be.  Even if you chart isn’t touched off directly by this special illumination – the energy flowing next week should be harmonious and leave most people in a good mood 😉 Now that is something to definitely look forward to!
