Virgo_V2_by_azurylipfe

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.

farm-near-quimperThere are certain things each of us are good at. Some families farm for generations. But some parents have children that are quite different then they are.  This is the case in my family.

My mother was a double Aquarius. My father was also an Aquarius, with four planets in the sign. He also had a Libra moon, so this was an extremely airy couple. I don’t share this quality with them.

The other night, I was recalling some of the story threads in my life and I came across something kind of cool.

ElsaElsa » Is Anything Absolute?

August 29th, 2014 @ 8:30 am by ElsaElsa

penniesAbsolute
noun
1.
PHILOSOPHY
a value or principle that is regarded as universally valid or that may be viewed without relation to other things.

I came across something recently, that made realize how resistant people are the anything that is stated as an absolute.  They want wiggle room. They want options. They want their circumstances to set them apart, so a rule won’t apply in their case.

After spending several weeks in Cancer’s cozy, quiet and watery home, it was time for Mercury to wring out his wings and seek the brilliant, bustling, vitality of the Sun.

Mick Jagger - Mercury in LeoMick Jagger – Mercury in Leo

From the moment he crossed into Leo, Mercury felt an immediate urge to polish his wings, clear his throat and teach the rest of the zodiac a thing or two about showmanship – from center stage of course. You see, whenever the planet of communications takes up residence in the sign of confidence, creative self-expression and drama, the song never ends, the acoustics are loud and the visual effects are over the top.

Likewise, while Mercury is here we are encouraged to express our creativity in some way. Those of us with literary or artistic talent may come to know Mercury as a muse …

satori on ElsaElsa » Weekend Love Forecast

August 29th, 2014 @ 6:30 am by satori on ElsaElsa

stageI look at that Virgo Sun, Pisces Neptune opposition and I can’t stop thinking of Jay and Silent Bob. I was going to say I apologize if you don’t know what I’m talking about, but much as I love them, I apologize either way. “Fifteen bucks, little man…” Let’s just say, this weekend you’ve got to balance the down to earth concerns of life, the details and service, with compassion and spirit and escapism (wacked-outedness).

Venus enters Virgo on September 5th, putting love, money and self-esteem under the microscope. Venus in Virgo asks “What’s wrong and how can I fix it?” Part of this is the desire to be of service, but it’s also the … Continue reading →

I took the long way around when deciding which artist to feature today. Should it be Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (born 29 August 1780) French portrait painter and sketcher of the great and good – and bad – and wealthy tourists in 19th century Rome? Or Paul Kane (3 September 1810), Irish-born Canadian artist and intrepid traveller of the frozen wastes of Canada, sketching and recording…

Astropost » Virgo astrologer Edith Wangemann

August 29th, 2014 @ 6:29 am by Astropost

Edith Wangemann was born August 29, 1917 in Germany. Together with her husband, and after his death alone, she practiced and studied astrology. She was married to an astrologer (Helmuth Wangemann). A picture shows that he knew Reinhold Ebertin. I have no idea how they made a living.

Astro.com mentions the couple’s scientific approach. In her chart this might be mirrored by the position of…

ElsaElsa » Killing Your Life(style)

August 28th, 2014 @ 12:11 pm by ElsaElsa

road spikesRecently I worked with a young woman, wrestling with the possibility of pulling the plug on her entire life.   Do you know what I’m talking about?

I’m talking about a person who is seen as this or that…a stable person. A moral person. A devoted wife.  But then they come to believe, or to actually see that their entire life is a lie.
