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!!!!


Keep Calm And Get Your Freak On – With The Upcoming Libra Full Moon!

22 Mar

Keep_Calm_SF_Tim_WebThere’s nothing like a Full Moon to bring out all the crazies – and I mean that literally 😉  A Full Moon is always known for making people act a little differently – or for making unforeseen events suddenly happen.  Emotions can also be heightened because of things happening around you or just because your emotions start to feel out of kilter.  It can certainly stir things up in all sorts of ways!

We’ve got a pretty intense Full Moon happening during the wee early hours of March 27th – which means we’ll all feel it most powerfully on the night of March 26th.  The Full Moon itself happens in Libra (6 degrees to be exact) but it’ll oppose a fiery Aries Sun.  At the time of the Full Moon that Aries Sun will be dancing – rather closely – with a pretty intense pair otherwise known as Uranus and Mars.  These two together are risky business!

Uranus is an unruly fellow and can throw the most even-keeled person out of whack.  He messes with our balance and brings things out of the blue that can shock and awe.  Mars is like the match that gets thrown into the pot to light it all up in a big way.  He can make any situation a bit worse as well as create emotions of anger and aggravation.  When he gets involved with the unruliness of Uranus we should really watch for accidents.  So the end of March is not the time to be exploring your dangerous side!  Save it for calmer planetary terrain 😉

The two forces at play here are balance, peace and partnership (Libra) and new/pioneering, risky and adventurous (Aries).  On the positive – maybe you’ll be embarking on something new which will mess with your serenity or balance in some way.  Look to the place in your chart where this Full Moon will light up.  That is the place where something could be revealed and some new revelation coming out.

Any new insights you get during this time may initially shock you – and perhaps mess with your balance.  However, there could be a freeing that happens as well and a trust to let go due to some of the planetary combinations connected to this Full Moon.  My advice is put on your Aries hat and be a pioneer!  Just go with the flow to see what happens as you embark upon these new territories!  However – just remember I said not to do anything toooooooo risky because accidents will be prone to happen!

The Skinny on The Sneaky-Freaky-Ureaneky – Otherwise Known As Uranus

26 Mar

I’m not sure where in the heck the planet Uranus got his name from.  It really doesn’t fit him in the least bit and it’s not fair that it sounds pretty much like someone’s rear-end.  If I had more time I’d look it up but I’m not really all that into research right now – unless it has to do with an astrology chart.  Give me one of those and I can dive in deep.  However, I’ll leave the other types of research to my probing Plutonian friends – or people who have a lot of Pluto/Scorpio in their charts.  Those types can find the answer to nearly anything.

I always visualize everything when it comes to Astrology – so naturally I have a picture in my mind for my Sneaky-Freaky-Ureaneky friend 😉  I usually picture him as an Albert Einstein type with really freaky hair.  He is known as a freaky/wild/unique/brilliantly smart kind of guy after all.  However, today when I was thinking about him the Genie from the Disney movie Aladdin came to mind. So that’s how I’ll let you visualize him now 😉

Uranus and I know each other pretty well.  He lives right on top of my Midheaven (career) in my chart and is one of the reasons I’m so into Astrology.  It is an unique profession after all and Uranus is ALL about being different from the norm.  He was present when I met my husband out of the blue when I was in high school and fell madly in love.  The love sparks this guy can create are totally intense …. enough to make any girl swoon 😉  Then he decided to collide with my Sun HEAD ON the day I gave birth to my daughter.  She weighed in at 11 pounds – shocking not only ME and my family – but my doctors as well!  I’m not a big girl but Uranus was the reason for my big baby 😉  You can’t blame him, though, he’s a SHOCKER after all and loves to do stuff like that.  If you’ve ever been involved in a jaw-dropping/super suprising event – I’d bet a good amount of money that my little Uraneaky had something to do with it.

He can deliver unexpected and very beneficial opportunities to your door and when they come you want to jump for joy.  Ahhhhh but sometimes his energy can really be a lot to take – too much even.  He can rattle us and bring unexpected changes to our door.  Anxiety is his middle name and if you’ve ever felt really crazy (and even if you don’t want to admit it -we’ve ALL been there at one time or another!) he could be your culprit.

However, sometimes we’re open to change and totally switching things up.  I just met a pretty neat person the other day and she told me “I’m ready to get the heck out of this place!”  When somebody says something like that … you can be sure Uranus is behind it.  He can propel us to make DRASTIC changes in our life and sometimes we’re ready for them.  When he hits – these changes may even surprise us when they start playing out.  Again – that’s Uranus – he likes to surprise even the most aware person.  You can never quite be sure what he’ll do and anybody who tries to forecast it is walking a slippery slope.

Uranus is about to be ultra challenged in the skies in the next several years.  He’s moving towards a bit of a battle with Pluto – and this is bound to have a major impact on our world as well as the many charts he’ll touch.  Revolutionary transformation is one way to describe how the energy may play out but as I told you forecasting what Uranus will do is a bit tricky as he’s a shocker.

Right now he’s in 4 degrees Aries which is likely to have an impact on all my fire signs (Aries, Saggitarius, Leo) in the coming years.  I say years because he’s a bit of a lug and moves rather slowly.  You’ll know it when he hits … there’s just no denying his unpredictable and ever so surprising touch.  You can think back to the time you read my post about him and say “Now I know what that Crystal B. meant when she talked about this sneaky freaky guy ……”
