5 Ways To Enjoy Valentine’s Day 2016

The sky on Valentine’s Day looks grumpy this year with a irritable, cranky T-Square taking place between the Moon in sensual Taurus opposing passionate Mars in Scorpio both squared to the independent Sun in Aquarius. All 3 of these signs are FIXED meaning they’re not easily moved to change their minds and want their own way. If we’re not careful this could mean heated arguments with no clear winners but many hurt feelings.
Venus the goddess of love and romance is also feeling pressure from Uranus who is making us feeling like we need a change in scenery or a new lover altogether. I would vote to not make any sudden changes to your relationships during this holiday. You may want to put break ups or deeper commitments like engagements or marriages on hold until the skies are calmer, unless you’re into relationships that thrive on the aggressive and unexpected. As they say, some like it hot!
For those of us who are splendidly single this Valentine’s Day, this is a great night to enjoy love and affection with close friends. Valentine’s Day falls during Aquarius season which isn’t a sign known for being especially romantic, that’s more Pisces domain. However Aquarius does value the love that arises from community especially when it’s with those who support us in fulfilling our wishes and dreams. So don’t let the hearts and roses keep you away from enjoying the day with people who love you!

Here are some tips to celebrate the day successfully

Practical As Sexy 

Much like Christmas, with Jupiter in Virgo ruling much of the sky, go for practical yet meaningful gifts. The sky will be earthy with Venus in Capricorn and the Moon in Taurus craving tangible, sensible expressions of affection.
Find ways to show affection in useful ways. What does your loved one NEED?
Can you pay my bills, can you you pay my telephone bills? A paid bill can be just as sexy as a bouquet of roses or an expensive bottle of wine. Nothing says “I love you” like a oil change or a monthly metrocard or even running errands for your over scheduled love. Remember with Earth signs, it can be the little things that add up to something more. Showing love isn’t always about grand romantic gestures, it can also be making sure the dishes are washed and the apartment is cleaned. If you can’t think of anything, simply ask your partner what would make their life easier and see if you can deliver a valentine’s day miracle for them.

Sensual Healing

With so much Earth in the sky and a sensual Taurus moon, consider a healing date whether as a couple, solo or with friends. I personally love spa days, a day spent at the sauna in herbal hot baths, deep tissue massages, the works! If you really want to take advantage of the healing energy being provided by Mars in Scorpio opposite the Moon you can go as deep as a colonic (Jupiter in Virgo would probably appreciate it, but that kind of cleaning is best saved for spring) Other options include energy work like reiki, acupuncture or even sound healings. Anything that brings balance to the physical and spiritual bodies will be a bonus this Valentine’s Day

Indulge in the 5 senses
If you absolutely must have a traditional romantic Valentine’s celebration then there can be no half stepping. The energy of the sky demands that the five senses be pleased to the highest extent. Indulge the Moon with the finest of wines and chocolates, the best live music, the most exquisite dining experience, wear your best outfit and prepare to be physically expressive. With Venus in Capricorn ruling the Moon keeping the style of the night extra old school and traditional will work in your favor.  If you can’t do this out on the town, recreate it at home. Jupiter, Venus and the Moon will appreciate the planned effort as a sign of love.

Sweat It Out
With such tense energy circulating between the Sun, Moon and Mars one of the best ways to diffuse the energy is to burn it off physically. We tend to feel prickly and argumentative when Mars picks a fight with the lights. Instead of bickering and fussing with your partner, point the energy into something physical. Go to an all night dance party where you’re guaranteed to sweat. Get physically creative, go toward Leo creative expression to help balance the tense T-Square energy. Arts and crafts like pottery, painting or even going to a play or ballet can be a great date to share together. If all else fails good old fashion love making will satisfy. Be mindful that this chart is especially fertile, so if babies aren’t on your radar, prepare accordingly!

Make A Plan For The Future
Not interested in blowing money on one day this year? That’s cool, this chart leaves room for deeper expressions of love like long term planning. Earth energy loves to seed itself by investing in a vision for the future. While you cuddle up with your lover talk about what your vision is for your journey together. Make it tangible by writing it down and signing both of your names on the dotted line with love. Check back next Valentine’s Day to see how your vision manifested.

5 Jupiter In Virgo Gift Ideas

Happy Holidays!

 

As we enter the last weeks of the year we officially feel the warmth of abundant Sagittarius Season. The term eat, drink & be merry seems to match the energy of Sagittarius who only wishes to expand & bring good cheer wherever he goes.

 

This makes sense of course since Sagittarius’ patron planet is Jupiter also know as Zeus, King of the Heavens, the largest planet in our solar system!  Jupiter in the skies shows us how to be optimistic, abundant, generous & confident. He’s the cosmic Santa Claus who rains down sweeping energy wherever he goes. Keep in mind that Jupiter does not discern between positive or negative, that’s not his immediate concern. His main goal is to amplify and enlarge whatever he touches.

 

This year however Jupiter finds himself in a sign that he generally can’t stand: Virgo. Virgo is the antithesis of all the things Jupiter represents. Where Jupiter wishes to expand and multiply, Virgo wishes to edit and simplify. Where Jupiter wants to feel optimistic, Virgo scans with practical cynicism. To say that this is an unnatural fit would be an understatement. Jupiter in Virgo will be guiding this holiday season with a steady practical hand. Virgo will rein in Jupiter’s need to go too big & too hard with a more measured, useful response to gift giving & celebrating. Here are some tips to make the best of Jupiter in Virgo while you shop & make plans to finish off 2015.

 

Keep Gift Giving Sensible

Extravagant gifts with little purpose won’t be favored this year. Jupiter in Virgo is more concerned with gifts that make sense. While you shop whether its for food or for gifts, keep in mind what would best serve.

 

Virgo loves to be of service, finding exactly what is needed in a particular moment. So maybe buy a little less for the big holiday meal because you know the leftovers tend of go to waste and you’re trying to cut back on extra calories to meet your new body goals (Virgo rules diets & health regimes). Buy a few more socks, sweaters & mittens because you know winter is going to be bitterly cold.

Maybe you’ve heard someone mentioning they needed new tires or an oil change, or a new set of dishes or pots and pans. Keep your senses attuned to what your loved ones say they need as opposed what they think they want.

* Want to be super efficient in your shopping? Simply ask loved ones to create their top 5 wishlist (Amazon comes to mind). This will take the guesswork out of the process while making sure their needs are met.

* Go a step further with practical gift cards that allow them to buy exactly what they need.

 

Keep It Clean

Virgo is the master analyst, she’s great at assessing what is needed versus what isn’t. Remember Virgo is the sign that marks the beginning of the harvest season. After a raucous summer she turns her mind toward what’s needed to get through the colder harsher months ahead.

Nothing screams winter like cold and flu season. It’s almost a guarantee that the sniffles will visit upon a household, so why not get ahead of it with some stocking stuffers to keep everyone’s immune system up to snuff. Virgo is also an adept healer who is concerned with keeping the body in glowing health.

Some great gifts could run along the lines of herbal teas & tinctures, humidifiers, air purifiers, essential oil sprays & natural hand sanitizers.

*Take it a step further by booking spa days, acupuncture sessions, massages or even gym memberships. Anything to keep the mind-body connection balanced as we enter the darker days of winter.

 

Get Organized

It may not sound exciting or glamorous, but another gift that would totally suit Jupiter In Virgo’s style is to offer to help loved ones get organized. Notebooks to jot down notes, premium apps and gadgets to keep information streamlined, gifting them a financial planner, or maybe a coach to help them hit a certain goal they’ve been dreaming about for some time. You could even offer to help them tackle that closet filled with clothes they never wear or that drawer that’s overflowing with old papers.

*Go super Virgo, by sending unneeded clothes, shoes, and books to the nearest thrift store, salvation army, or used bookstore so it can go on to be of use to someone else. A win-win for everyone!

 

Hand-make it with Love

Not interested in spending a great deal this holiday season? Why not go handmade? If you have a flair for creating things Jupiter in Virgo appreciates the effort & care that goes into thoughtfully creating a custom piece with someone in mind. Pure intention can really elevate a simple gift into a magical space.

*Not feeling tremendously crafty? That’s alright, there are tons of wonderfully talented artists & craftsman for you to choose from all over the country. Try getting into the #BlackOnBlackFriday #blackowned #buyblack hashtags on social media platforms to explore.

 

Go Gift-less

If there was ever a year to go giftless this would be it. Jupiter in Virgo will attune our spirits to the real meaning of service. True service can be an act of love. When we heighten our senses to pay attention our loved ones and communities we instinctively know how to show that we care by providing acts of service big or small.

When we selflessly give of ourselves,, energetically we receive back what has been given. Consider volunteering at local soup kitchens, shelters, orphanages and senior centers. Donate to your favorite charity, or offer to gift something special to those who are often forgotten during the holiday season.

 

May your holiday season be heartfelt and bright.

New Moon In Scorpio: Aligning With Your Passion

Happy New Moon in Scorpio!

This particular New Moon has overtones of releasing emotional & physical clutter as Scorpio is so skilled at doing, but also of honoring our unique strengths & focusing them down into a powerful laser beam of potent energy.

With eccentric Aquarius rising at the time of the New Moon, our outward vision is focused through the lens of visionary Aquarius.

Are you being authentic or are you conforming to the crowd? Are you playing it safe? Aquarius holds the freedom to be exactly who they are at the top of their priority list. When Aquarius finds themselves going along to get along, life loses its meaning. They become robotic in their everyday responses, losing their sense of inspired idealism. This is what we’re eliminating under this New Moon.

The time has arrived to let go of the soul numbing conformity and align deeply with your passion as shown by Scorpio while allowing Virgo to push us to work quietly and diligently to attain our vision.

 

Uranus, Aquarius’s ruler is in innovative & courageous Aries where he’s been since 2011 creating youth driven revolutions around the world, breaking up old paradigms and infusing the world with fresh inspired vision for the future.. Presently Uranus is retrograde (appearing backwards in the sky) meaning his revolutionary energy is turned  inward where its compressing while building momentum, clarity & strength. Remember energy doesn’t always need to be seen in order to be felt.

Look to your natal chart to see where Uranus is currently sitting & demanding changes to be made. He’s the focus point for this New Moon as he not only commands the chart, but also creates the apex behind the Finger of Fate (Yod) in the sky with the Sun and Moon in passionate Scorpio sextile to Jupiter in discriminating Virgo.

 

What is a Yod or Finger of Fate/God?

The Finger of Fate is a astrological configuration usually between 3 or more planets that looks like an isosceles triangle.  At the base of the triangle are two sets of planets creating what we call a sextile or a flowing or easy aspect consisting of 60° between the two sets of planets.

Sextiles create ease of communication between planets. They have a certain aptitude in working together, between them lies skill and opportunity.

Joining the sextile is an aspect called a quincunx which connects to the sextile by 150°.  A quincunx is not quite as conflicted in energy as say a direct opposition or a square, instead it creates irritation and friction. It nags at us just enough to spurn us into action.

Together this configuration allows for the easy flow of skilled energy in the sky to be motivated and focused down into a point, to take fated action. Here we take advantage of our skills and put it to work to move us along our fated path.

 

Making The New Moon Work For You

So what are you moved to take action on now that you’ve cleaned out your emotional closets? What fear has Scorpio presented to you that you are now ready to release and move forward toward your destiny?

Scorpio asks us to align with our passion, here we connect with our deeper more potent emotions to find our way in the dark. What fills us with fear is also what can fill us with joy. Typically it is our fear that shows us where our work is to be done, there lies our joy underneath the rubble. Virgo shows us our ability to be dedicated to our work. We’re willing to dig in and stick with something until we refine it to its purest state of being.

This New Moon is asking us to align with and work with our passion, cultivate our skills and shoot it down to Uranus who will use the energy to break new ground in our lives. Be willing to stand in your unique and seemingly unusual way of living and being… its what makes you, you. The work that you’re passionate about is the work that you came down here to do.

Look to your Scorpio, Virgo, Aries and Aquarius houses to see where your fate is taking you. Planets and angles at and around 19° will be activated by this energy, they too will shed light on your way forward.

Transformative Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in diligent Virgo are sending earthy support to the Sun-Moon connection in Scorpio. Pluto will help add a healthy dose of authority & power to your backbone. Be a boss about your vision and the work you seek to do. Who else is going to do it if not you? Mars in Virgo will fuel you to keep working, creating to do lists, planning, refining, and editing. Take advantage of Mars while he’s focused in Virgo, he moves into diplomatic & indecisive Libra on November 12th at 4:40pm EST
