Aurum Astrology » Play or Penance?

August 31st, 2014 @ 11:03 pm by Aurum Astrology

This may have been a tricky weekend for many. The Sun in Virgo is urging us to focus in and get things done, while Neptune sitting opposite is blurring our attention and distracting us with fantasies and dreams. Neptune activates our creative urges as well, and if we can get those to meet in the middle with Virgo, something concrete and beautiful can result.
The Moon (our emotions)  is hanging out with Mars (action) and Saturn (boundaries) in Scorpio (depth) and all of them together agree strongly with the need to get to the work at hand.
Then again, with Jupiter in  Leo (play), personal enjoyment could take precedence over work  or details.
Which one was it for you?
The Moon in Scorpio (serious) square Venus in Leo (me, me, me) has added inner stress and tension around our social …

Debbie Frank » Sun and Pluto

August 31st, 2014 @ 11:02 pm by Debbie Frank

As Pluto is the God of the Underworld, the one who took Persephone down into the darkest place, he has a difficult reputation. Yet this week’s stunning alignment between the Sun and Pluto redeems the feeling that even in this ancient myth, Persephone reached transformation through living with ‘the demon’. It’s only when we get to experience the difficult times in our lives that we realise how resilient, powerful and strong we are. That we come through with so much wisdom.…

satori on ElsaElsa » Change Versus Growth

August 31st, 2014 @ 6:17 am by satori on ElsaElsa

radishI don’t think people change at all. But I think the debate that goes on in this area is mainly semantics. You don’t plant a carrot and get brussels sprouts. You get a damn carrot… or you don’t, if you don’t water it. The carrot you get is terrifically reliant on the treatment it gets. (…)

Tracys Astro Salon » What’s Going on?

August 31st, 2014 @ 6:17 am by Tracys Astro Salon

In honor of our last unofficial weekend of Summer.    I give you this song to get  your inner surfer going.
During the three-day weekend we are processing the Crescent phase of the moon.     As we know we are extra observant in this phase because information is coming to us in all shapes and sizes.   On this Crescent the accent is on:
Focus :  How does your schedule reflect balance?  What information are you learning that speaks of where you need to find balance?  What are you learning about how fine-tuning your relationship.  What are you learning that would be practical help in your relationships?  How is your partnership?  Are you more of a partner than you realized?  Are there weaknesses.
Then on Tuesday we move into  First Quarter Moon.   Any seeds we planted last week on the New Moon will …

Astropost » A lost battle and Mars inconjunct Eris

August 31st, 2014 @ 6:16 am by Astropost

It is hard to believe today, but on August 30, 1799 a joined force
of British and Russian soldiers defeated the entire Dutch fleet and invaded a
part of Holland. Eventually, they had to give up and were allowed to leave the
country unmolested. Now how did the Dutch chart look that day?

For a better view, click the chart

When a war or a battle is concerned, I always look for Mars-Eris…

ElsaElsa » Astrological Red Flags When Dating Men

August 30th, 2014 @ 9:30 am by ElsaElsa

red flagA reader asks:

Regarding the opposite sex: what is the number 1 astrology aspect or configuration that you stay away from?

As in, what, if anything stands out as a ‘signal’ or red flag for you (for you personally), and is this due to personal experiences?

Thanks for the great question!

I don’t stay away from anyone for any astrological reason. People are just too complex. Also, there are exceptions to every rule and there are people who are exceptional in general!

This does mean there aren’t things that catch my eye or cause me concern.

On Friday, September 5, Venus’s wild ride in fiery Leo comes to an end and she goes on a much needed retreat in earthy Virgo. What started out on a high note when Venus conjoined Jupiter in Leo went sour when she ran into Mars and Saturn in Scorpio early this week. Venus is resilient in Leo and by the time she enters Virgo she should have recovered much of her usual optimism.

Because Venus is exalted in Pisces, it is considered to be in its fall in Virgo. Quiet, reserved Virgo is a far less exciting place for [...]…

Robert Frost’s poem Choose Something Like A Star will probably appeal to poetry lovers who also love astrology. The poet appeals to the star, “Say something to us we can learn by heart….”, a plea an astrologer might make when contemplating an astrological chart! I’m particularly fond of the last five lines of the poem.
