Working with Relationship Astrology, I have noticed a human trend in the questions; “how to get the partner or other person to act the way I want them to” instead of “help me understand them and myself”. I know if they wanted to know that, they would be at a therapist office. Calling me is supposed to be a quick and cheap fix. I am expected to be an oracle, a magic 8 ball, one that can bend the will of the Universe for the client. They want to hear that they are right and everyone else is wrong or can be manipulated. I am supposed to expose someone else’s secrets without noticing the nakedness of the natal chart of the client. If this is why I am called, I am the wrong astrologer for the job they want done.…
Venus has played by Capricorn’s rules long enough. On March 5th, she enters Aquarius and does her own thing.
Transiting Venus represents relationships (all relationships, not just romantic), self-worth, money, values and beauty. Aquarius is thought of as the rebel sign, but a more accurate description would be the individuated sign. Whatever makes you “you,” whatever your special stamp looks like, is what Aquarius (in your chart) is all about. When Venus activates this section of your chart, you have the potential to attract Venus-themed issues, pertinent to the house Aquarius is in. And you won’t do this by following the crowd.
So there’s the freedom of truly being yourself. Venus in Aquarius says “Love the thing that makes you stick out, stand out or stir the pot.” But there’s also Aquarius’ chilled-out detachment. …
Tuesday morning the Moon in Aries opposes Mars (its sign ruler) and squares Venus, a t-square in cardinal signs. This is a personal t-square in addition to the impersonal one going on in the collective, Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter. The personal one is fleeting and therefore timely. If what you want and what you need are at odds, what are you going to do about it? Anything? Maybe not, maybe it needs more time and experience, but the question is timely.

As if pathology were something to defy. As if you could somehow not be ruled by old demons, and trapped in ancient hallways, the cartography defined before you were born. These obsessions, barely personalized make their way though your life like a snake moving through a paper town, flattening the landscape wholesale. Imaginary skyscrapers bow beneath them while you try to remember the top 10 tricks effective people have or do.
It doesn’t work that way. Tricks and tools keep demons invisible, helpful, yes, but demon hunters they are not. Thinly veiled and wrapped more tightly around your throat, you can’t see demons now, because they operate with glacial slowness, why f*ck up a moment, when you can f*ck up a life?
Well what is it then? What is the cure for demons?
You want what you want.
Oh darkness, …
Sorry, I didn’t get this up earlier today but I was slogging a few things and I just couldn’t get here.
First off let’s talk about the Cardinal Clusterf$%k.
As you know while we are dealing with all the cardinal crosses that are centered next month (blech) we get a little taste of pressure whenever the moon crosses into a cardinal sign. This happens once a week and you may have felt it during last night’s Oscar telecast. Did you feel the Moon in Aries when the plastic surgery hit your TV screen? At one point I begged my husband to turn the TV off High Def when a certain actress walked up. Lord, I liked the old days when they put vaseline on the screen.
Anyway, here is how the moon in Aries went down. The times are EST …

The period of stasis is hardly over but at least our mental acuity begins to improve this week as Mercury in Aquarius picks up speed going forward. We might not be able to do much more than plan our next move for now with Mars in Libra still standing in place twiddling his thumbs and Saturn in Scorpio doing the same.
It’s not all bad news out there. Monday the Pisces Sun conjoins Chiron with both sextile Pluto in Capricorn. The message here is to exercise our capacity for compassion and forgiveness towards those who [...]…
In the penultimate chapter of “The Night Sky” – The Science and Anthropology of the Stars and Planets by Dr. Richard Grossinger, the author wanders into the realm of pop culture, the chapter’s title: The Pop Star Cult of the Fifties and Sixties. What he describes was also the start of a culture of youth which, before that point in history hadn’t existed. He writes about growing up with the…
A very brief but interesting aspect coming up.
Venus at 29 degrees Capricorn will square the transiting Nodes (in Libra/Aries) on March 4th. One day only, two at a stretch (you might be feeling this influence now). When the Nodes and a fast-moving planet like Venus connect, the orbs are tight because the influence is fleeting.
But it’s worth mentioning. A square to the Nodes is a skipped step; what you need to confront/overcome before you leave behind the SN limits and embrace the NN potential. Here’s a post on what the transiting Nodes in Libra/Aries mean.
Venus rules Libra, so Venus in Capricorn prods you to look at the transiting North Node (in Libra).
Some issues this aspect might raise:
Happy birthday ARIES (March 21-April 19) Tarot card insight: Ace of Pentacles: A blessing is received. Spiritual work. New work. Bliss. The real thing. What is touched, turns to gold.

I have Libra, though. I can get by in social situations. But if you ever really talk to me, you’ll find I’ve got a lot of weight. Again, I don’t think if this is good or bad. It’s just the sort of person I am.
