Mercury and Venus light up the night

Mercury and Venus are aligning in the sky and over the next week or so they will be beaming a beautifully bright light from the western sky, appearing as the brightest “star” visible in the heavens.  Normally Mercury moves a little more quickly than Venus but at the moment Mercury is slowing down in preparation for its retrograde turn on the 17th so the two planets will be within three degrees of each other until around April 11th.

Astrologically, Mercury (the mind) and Venus (relating)  are both in the sign of Taurus which is ruled by Venus, so the influence Venus is particularly strong there.  Anything having to do with communication between individuals such as negotiations or detailed planning sessions are favorable under this influence.  It is easier now to express your viewpoints and have them be clearly understood, and this influence is also favorable for financial matters.

Astrology in my world: Saturn square my Mars

. Last fall when I was in Jamaica, transiting Saturn made a square to my Mars.  Saturn is the planet that causes restriction – it brings delays, disappointments, and can cause us to feel overworked.  Mars in our chart shows where we are energized, inspired, and how we go about getting things done.

Having just gone through a major transit of Pluto to my Mars, my  Mars is pretty well activated.  I speak up for myself, get plenty of exercise to activate that Mars energy, and set good boundaries, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when Saturn first squared my Mars when I was on vacation in Jamaica last fall.  As it happened, I turned my vacation into a fitness bootcamp by getting serious (Saturn) about exercise (Mars), but I also got trapped in the hotel room when I was so eaten up by bugs that I couldn’t venture outside.  My husband Rich took off for the beach, leaving me peacefully reading on the veranda until I couldn’t find the key to lock the room which effectively trapped me (Saturn) inside the room, unable to do anything (Mars).  I later found the key right where Rich said it was, on the dresser, but meanwhile I had a powerful Saturn/Mars experience.

So yesterday Rich and I were up in Asheville for a couple of days, and he had a meeting there Monday morning.  I had a whole list of cool things I was going to do with the dog while Rich was at his meeting (he left at the crack of dawn), but when I got dressed and was ready to go, I realized he had taken the car keys, effectively trapping me […]

Libra Full Moon today, March 29

Full Moon in LibraVenus rules today under the Libra Full Moon which culminates at 10:25 pm Eastern time.  When the Moon is full, the light of our emotional interior as described by the Moon is more powerful than the light of the conscious mind as represented by the Sun, and there is a culmination of our hopes, dreams and desires.  In Libra the Moon craves partnership, balance and harmony.  There is a longing here for integration and a need for connection and peace.

The Libra Full Moon is opposite the Aries Sun, which is primarily driven by a need for self-assertion.  The Aries Sun seeks leadership and adventure and a positive expression of the aggressive instinct.  Under the influence of the Full Moon, this brash individuality must be balanced with the Libra desire for peace and harmony.

Pluto forms a challenging square to both the Sun and Moon in the chart of the lunation, suggesting that something must be surrendered in order for transformation to take place.  Whenever Pluto is involved there is a call to strip away the fluff and emerge naked in a state of Truth.

At its core, the tension between Libra and Aries is the need to achieve a balance between the Self and the Other.  This is one of the major defining principles of life on Earth, and any imbalance in this area of our lives at this time will be revealed now as something to work through and master.  Pluto’s goal is to bring us into our full empowerment, and in this lunation (lunar event) any power imbalance in relationships of any kind will be revealed.

Venus is in a nearly exact harmonious sextile to Neptune during the lunation, and very tightly sextile to Chiron as […]

Astrology goes to court in India

is wrong in so many ways (thanks to  for the article):

Mumbai: Is astrology a science or an art of making money? The city-based NGO, Janhit Manch, has started a debate on the issue in the Bombay high court.

A public interest litigation (PIL) filed by the manch and its convener Bhagwanji Raiyani, along with his associate Dattaram Kumkar, has questioned the validity of predictions by well-known astrologers, including Bejan Daruwalla, and unknown babas like Brahmarshi Shri Kumar Swami.

Is Daruwalla and Brahmarshi were not represented by their advocates, the court issued notices to them to file their replies in four weeks. The more than 100-page petition pointed to several cases, including that of Indira Gandhi and Charan Singh becoming prime ministers, despite opposite predictions.

Hearing the submissions, justice Rebello remarked: “It is difficult to understand how wearing a stone on a finger can change one’s fate! But astrology is a science and that has been accepted by the Supreme Court.”

The PIL referred to Daruwalla, the “famous name of an astrologer and that numerologist among the elite class” who operates “somewhere from Colaba and Ahmedabad”, with his contact numbers on his website. When Kumkar contacted the astrologer’s office, Bapu, his personal assistant, told him to send a Rs25,000 cheque/cash for an appointment, which would be any time after 10 days; if the appointment was urgent, an extra charge of Rs3,000 would have to be made, the PIL stated.

Representing the Union government, advocate Advait Sethna told the court that even the SC had accepted that astrology was a science and many universities had included it as a subject. “Science, which is 4,800 years old, cannot be banned,” Sethna argued.

The PIL urged the authorities to ban articles, advertisements, episodes and practices promoting astrology and its related subjects like vastu, […]

Why did Sandra Bullock marry Jesse James?

This whole debacle with Jesse James and the now eleven affairs he is supposed to have had during his marriage to Sandra Bullock, has me asking this question again.  Astrology provides a window into the motivation behind people’s actions, so I took a deeper look.

Sandra Bullock’s chart is not a very emotional one.  She has the Moon in reasonable and rational Aquarius, showing that her feelings (the Moon) tend to be filtered through the mind rather than the emotional body.  She has very little other water in her chart other than Saturn in Pisces, which shows a discomfort and fear (Saturn) of losing herself (Pisces), and Chiron is also in Pisces showing a wound (Chiron) in that same area.

In addition, with Venus (relating) in the changeable sign of Gemini, she is likely to need  a lot of space and air in her relationships. Chiron, the wounder and healer, is in a challenging square to Venus in Sandra’s chart which suggests that relationships are for her the greatest teachers but can sometimes lead to emotionally wrenching experiences.

Sandra met Jesse James in December 2003 when  transiting Pluto (transformation and compulsion) formed a challenging square to Chiron in Sandra’s chart and began to set off the Chiron/Venus system. Pluto transits call us deeper into the soul where we have to face parts of ourselves that have long been hidden, and Pluto transits to Venus also bring about intense relationship experiences that can be very difficult but which in the end teach us something about ourselves. Pluto transits to Chiron often have the effect of healing a deep wound within us, but can also serve to expose that wound so that it can be dealt with.

For the two years that Sandra and […]
