Every sign has its specialty and Virgo’s is tending to all the little details that everyone else (who isn’t a Virgo misses).  Want a great haircut?  Make sure the stylist is a Virgo.  Need a good carpenter, dentist, or tailor?  If you’re really serious about getting the job done right  don’t be embarrassed, just ask them what sign they are.  The one who says “Virgo” will be the winner and you’ll be glad you did. Virgo’s walk around zeroing in on everything that’s not straight, finely tuned or perfectly cooked; if not the kvetching will never stop.  Living with a Virgo’s criticisms can be irritating to some, especially Sagittarians  who would rather forfeit details altogether.  A Sagittarian carpenter would prefer guestimating to using a level.  Nothing against Sag’s but they are more into the idea of the house rather than how it actually gets built.   Virgo’s just analyze everything.  That’s also why they make good accountants.  They are a methodical sign and probably first coined the phrase “God is in the details.”

Here’s what things would look like if the 6th sign of the zodiac went on vacation.






After researching the Leaning Tower of Pisa it’s hard to tell who to blame for its world renowned tilt. Since time immemorial money has been the root of all evil, so my guess is that somebody got paid off to build on an insecure foundation.  Whoever the engineer or architect was I just bet his name was Sloppy Joe AKA Maglione Informe.  As for myself I prefer Sloppy Guiseppe. History aside, I just like that it is a perfect example of Virgo gone missing.  Thanks to again…money and human’s natural inclination to travel, tourism provided a way to exploit the tower’s defects by turning it into Italy’s cash cow   So if Wikipedia’s data is right,  spin was very much alive even as far back as 644 years ago.

Let this be a lesson to us all, when that Virgo boss makes us want to scream in exasperation because he/she behaves like an anal OCD freak…just know that this sign can’t help straightening crooked picture frames, or pointing out that your eye wear is smudged, or always hands  you a tissue before and after a sneeze. Every sign does what it is born to do and Virgo’s job is to  keep the world tidy and looking like nobody lives in it.

Pluto Aspects In Synastry

Pluto“If you see me coming better step aside; a lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died.”
–Sixteen Tons, Merle Travis

Pluto is depth, transformation, power. It is slow-moving so the aspects that it makes are experienced most keenly when in relation to a personal planet. Aspects it makes to outer planets are more generational. For example, Pluto to Neptune is something you experience along with everyone in your age group as opposed to Pluto to the Moon. The moon moves so quickly that where it falls in your chart is a more individual affair. The same relational energy holds true when we talk about interaspects, aspects from chart to chart.

Full moon in aries, 16th October 2016

Hello! We are mid-way through beautiful October, and here in the north of England, autumn is starting to show itself. The annual full moon in Aries takes place this year on 16th October @ 05.23am (UK time). The Sun in Libra stands opposite Moon/Uranus in Aries, which certainly is a highly charged, potentially explosive combination (in both positive or negative ways). Moon and Uranus together can make situations feel unstable, disruptive, and emotionally unsettled. But it can also be about emotional breakthroughs, positive change, and independence that gets to the heart of who we are and how we want to relate with others.
Electric attraction is sparking chemistry in relationships like it hasn’t for some time, so sudden or unexpected romance, or love at first sight, is just as likely as sudden ‘bolt from the blue’ break-ups.
Sun in Libra has a keen sense of justice and fairness, and impulsive Aries leaps into action without a second thought (without a first thought if intuitive Uranus is added to the mix), to redress the balance.
We also have the very powerful Mercury in Libra square to Mars/Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury (logic and communication), Mars (action and momentum) and Pluto (powerful transformation) can also indicate an explosive combination and huge releases of energy. Mars and Pluto standing together hold huge power, and therefore huge potential for power struggles between people. It’s also an indicator of bottling things up, and any full moon seems to pop the cork on certain situations that have been building up (this one is maybe more likely than others)
Communication needs lots of self-awareness; lots of ‘being the bigger person’. Give benefit of the doubt repeatedly in order to dispel power struggles within yourself about others, and your relationship with others. And to stop the negative judgements from killing your peace and harmony and locking you out of your own heart centre (which is the most bleak place in the universe to be).
Most of us are not in positions of power that we can instantly make decisions that affect huge sways of people, so all we have is our own individual inner peace and harmony that we can control. Luckily it’s all we need. Our own corner of the world is where we can impact and influence… not via manipulation or pressure on others, but via our own self balance. This is what the Aries/Libra axis is all about.
I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling this potent full moon energy building for a few days now. It’s a full on full moon for sure, looking at the planet patterns. Which means it takes some focus and determination to get the best from it, but oh the rewards are great for doing so.
So unless things have been going totally swimmingly in all areas of your life for a while, it’s more than likely that any area not flowing and going 100% how you want it too has become harder to ignore this week… the obstacles, the brick walls, the delays, the wading through treacle, the aches and pains…. it all FEELS more intense during a full moon like this one, making you more restless, more sensitive or touchy and over-reactive.
It’s because full moons work like emotional amplifiers. If you’ve been doing a lot of thinking (focusing) about what you don’t want, and dealing with things you don’t want to deal with in certain areas, the resistance, or the pushing against it all, is MUCH more tangible right now.
BUT the sweet healing power of a full moon is that it’s GUIDANCE – all that emotional amplification means you get to see exactly where you would do well to ‘reset your mindset’ to something more positive, open, life-affirming, YOU-affirming. Something less judgemental, less rigid, less critical. Don’t underestimate the power of your mindset. How you think and feel regularly about things, is how things turn out, everytime. A little bit of open-heartedness and open-mindedness goes an awful long way during this full moon period, opening doors for miracles and marvels to manifest.
Happy full moon in Aries!


Weekend Love Forecast – Aries Full Moon Balancing Act

viewFriday night the Aries Moon moves into opposition to Jupiter in Libra. Ah what to reference for this one… think Sponge Bob and Mr. Crabs psyching each other up for a night out: “Are you ready to party Mr. Crabs??” “I’m ready to party! Are you ready to party, Sponge Bob?” Only it doesn’t end and there’s no plan. Well, that’s the unchannelled nature of the energy. (…)
