ElsaElsa » How Can I Raise My Vibration?

January 19th, 2017 @ 10:59 am by ElsaElsa

Goat on mountainHello Elsa!

I’d like to ask about wavelengths and raising one’s energy. Its sounds woo woo, but here’s what I mean. A Scorpio can be a stinging scorpion bent on punishing all for past wrong, or they can be a wise soaring eagle, focused on justice and righteous (rather than vindictive) retribution.(…)

The Libra Moon has a halfway decent morning in part because the only aspect is an inconjunct to sympathetic Venus in Pisces. It is afternoon when she has to put with the likes of controlling Pluto in Capricorn when the mood may get darker. Late in the evening she has her monthly opposition to Uranus in Aries and it will be during the night when she enjoys conjoining Jupiter in Libra. Take care of more sensitive matters during the morning and be sure to schedule any meetings then. Dealing with superiors during the afternoon will require considerable tact and diplomacy. Working alone rather attempting to coordinate with other people is best later in the day. 🌠☾♎🌠

Last night’s Mars in Pisces inconjunct to Jupiter in Libra may still be resonating in the atmosphere and making it difficult to know how …

ElsaElsa » Which House System Is Best?

January 18th, 2017 @ 12:17 pm by ElsaElsa

Hi, Elsa,

I have heard many astrologers say that “I use this particular house system, but they all work.” To me this sounds wishy washy and I am wondering if you could help me understand how they could all possibly work. For example, in one house system one has a stellium in the 12th house and in another it is in the 1st house. If you do the natal chart analysis, transits, progressions etc. you get two totally different stories. How can they possibly both work and make sense?

Learning in Finland(…)

Vesta Glyph“I believe in nothing, everything is sacred. I believe in everything, nothing is sacred.”
–Tom Robbins, Novelist, strong sexual themes, Vesta conjunct Chiron in Gemini

The asteroid Vesta is associated with the mythology of the ancient Vestal Virgins and both Scorpio and Virgo. Prominent Vesta in the natal chart is associated with the importance of sexuality, at both extremes, abstinence and promiscuity. It is not a sexuality devoid of morality but a sexuality charged with a higher dedication. Sex takes on an importance that is sacred in some regard.

ElsaElsa » Mars Square Saturn – Pissed Off

January 17th, 2017 @ 5:21 pm by ElsaElsa

I sent a newsletter earlier this week, Fighting With Claw Hammers. I didn’t realize when I wrote it (a week ago), I’d be this pissed off myself.

I’ve spent the last eighteen hours telling people to take a flying leap. Basically, shove it, ya know?  This is my mouth. This the brick that flies from my mouth, to hit you in the head.(…)

ElsaElsa » Read About Astrology & Death

January 17th, 2017 @ 1:20 pm by ElsaElsa

I just responded to someone asking for insight into their (current) obsession with death. He or she had a unisex name, so I’m not sure what pronoun to use.

The person had a Scorpio Moon conjunct Pluto. Pluto was in hard aspect to Venus and Saturn. Let’s just say, there were plenty of indications this person would be interested in death and achieve some level sophistication on the subject, one way or the other.

I sent them the link to the death tag on this blog.  There are over 100 posts available.

It’s a true feast. Enjoy!

ElsaElsa » I Am Nothing Like My Natal Chart

January 17th, 2017 @ 1:20 pm by ElsaElsa

Hi, Elsa.

Over the years I my experience has shown me that astrology pretty much always works…but sometimes I may not get it. Sometimes I have to wait a while til I can grasp it. So it’s not astrology, it’s my capacity to understand that is the limiting factor.

But I have been having a hard time with my 3 planets in Aries. I don’t see the qualities of Aries showing up in me. I am not pushy, irritable, in a hurry. I am not brave, I am not on some big heroic mission. I am not particularly enthusiastic.

During the night the Moon transitions from Virgo to Libra and takes more of an interest in being out and about. Libra does enjoy good conversation as long as everyone is civil and polite. That may be a problem midday when Mercury in Capricorn squares the Libra Moon. Words can become edged weapons in an icily polite manner. Neither Libra nor Capricorn usually descend to name calling or screaming imprecations but everyone will be very aware they aren’t happy. By late afternoon/early evening peace should return, though a glass of wine might be good. 🌠☾♎🌠

Around midnight Mars in Pisces will be inconjunct Jupiter in Libra. Mars in Pisces tends to express anger in a passive-aggressive way and I suspect Jupiter in peace loving Libra will only intensify that. People may end up deferring to one another to the point …

This year the first New Moon of 2017 is at 08° 15′ Aquarius on 27 January 2017, 04:07 PM PST. Aquarius is one of the three trans-personal signs (Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces) who are charged with helping us understand the big picture. This New Moon connects Aquarius and Pisces via a semi-sextile between the luminaries in Aquarius and Neptune in Pisces. We can either dive into deepest denial or open our hearts and minds to compassionate inclusion . . . it is our choice as beings with free will.

In traditional astrology Aquarius was ruled by Saturn though after Uranus was discovered, it was assigned to Aquarius and now most astrologers use Uranus as Aquarius’s ruler. Interestingly enough, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries are trine now, connecting the two planets associated with Aquarius. In this instance, Saturn works …

Neptune God of SeaHi, Elsa.

How can I handle Neptune transiting opposite natal Venus? Is it possible to keep the rose-colored glasses off in terms of relationships? Or should one channel energies into creative projects?

Venus in Virgo
United States

Hi, Venus.

I don’t think it’s possible to do what you’re asking, nor do I think it’s desirable. We have transits for a reason.  (…)
