What’s Your Rising Sign?

When someone asks you your sign, what they’re really asking is what sign the Sun was in on the day you were born.

But you also have an Ascendant, or Rising Sign, which is a vitally important point in your chart. Your Rising Sign indicates how you interact with other people and represents the mask that others encounter before they get to know the real you. It can also have a major influence on your physical appearance.

While the Sun takes around a month to travel through each sign, the rotation of the Earth means that the sign rising on the horizon changes every two hours. So, your Rising Sign is determined by the time and place you were born and explains why someone born on the same day of the same year may be very different from you.

Your Rising Sign affects your love life and shows why you may be attracted to wildly incompatible Sun Signs! Check out your Rising Sign and then see from the descriptions below how it impacts your Sun Sign and your relationships.

Aries Rising
Impulsive and brave, you are always one step ahead of the pack. You have a strong sense of fair play but you can be a little tactless in your efforts to achieve it. But there is something childlike about your spontaneity, which usually disarms other people. You may find yourself attracted to Libra, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Taurus Rising
Outwardly gentle and passive, you’re stubborn as well. You only lose your temper if your security is threatened. You may be beautiful, with a melodious voice and brilliant communications skills. But you do like to be in control, which is something others don’t realize until it’s too late! You’ll find common ground with Scorpio, Virgo, and Capricorn.

Gemini Rising
Cell phones were invented for you, as you love to chat! Ideally, you are conducting several conversations at once while you monitor your FAX and e-mail. You are easily bored, and staying focused on one objective requires a lot of self-discipline. This Rising Sign guarantees a youthful appearance and outlook. You love to share ideas with Sagittarius, Libra, and Aquarius.

Cancer Rising
You have a strong need to nourish your loved ones, and you’ll do anything to avoid rejection. You have real empathy with others, but you can be moody, especially at New and Full Moons. There is a really appealing softness about your appearance, but you may have to work to control your waistline. You love the way Capricorn takes care of you, and you also resonate with Scorpio and Pisces.

Leo Rising
Your impressive presence lights up your surroundings, and if you accept that you aren’t on stage all the time, you can be relaxed and playful. You’re loyal but need to work hard at empathy. Your beautiful mane is often a standout feature. You are attracted to Aquarians, as they dare to stand up to you. Aries and Sagittarius are kindred spirits who fit into the drama of your life.

Virgo Rising
You’re so complicated that the tiniest fly in the ointment can result in sleepless nights and possibly an ulcer. You are also hard on yourself, as you never quite match up to your own standards. But the up side is that you’re a source of practical know-how and always look young for your age. Pisces teaches you the deeper meaning and how to chill; Capricorn and Taurus are comfortable companions.

Libra Rising
Charming, fair, and just, you simply have to redress the balance whenever it seems out of kilter, so you’re often embroiled in disputes. Ideally, you channel this into your career, or your relationships will be stormy or nonexistent, and you hate to be alone! Not that you’ll lack admirers. Fellow air signs, Aquarius and Gemini, provide intellectual stimulation, and Aries is infuriatingly attractive!

Scorpio Rising
Soulful and secretive, you don’t give anything away. Others can drown in those deep, often dark eyes, but it leaves you unfazed. Once you fall in love, you really lock on, and woe to any two-timing lover. Emotional security is paramount, although you have a healthy respect for money in the bank. Taurus understands your needs, as does Cancer. You fall for Pisceans, but they will drive you mad!

Sagittarius Rising
So friendly! So open! So accident-prone! With eyes fixed on distant horizons, you sometimes miss or bump into what’s right in front of you. You make up for it by being warm as toast and interested in just about everything except getting tied down. Your cure for the blues is to hop on the nearest plane and explore. Gemini fascinates you, and Leo and Aries share your inspired outlook on life.

Capricorn Rising
You come across as serious, but that belies your dry sense of humor. You’re hard-headed when it comes to money and responsibility, because you take your commitments seriously. You often feel out of place when young and usually come into your own after you hit 30. So don’t give yourself a hard time! Cancerians really appreciate your protectiveness, and Taurus and Virgo tease out your sensuality.

Aquarius Rising
You are a people person, but because you believe we are all equal under the sun, your nearest and dearest sometimes feel neglected. Quirkily charismatic, you definitely attract unusual people and unexpected adventures, which is how you like it really. Hooking up with a Leo can be irresistible and teaches you that some folk are indeed more equal than others. Gemini and Libra match you in the conversation stakes.

Pisces Rising
Sensitive and sympathetic, you are a bit like a psychic sponge, soaking up everything in the emotional atmosphere. You hate both confrontation and disappointing those that you love, so if you’ve misbehaved, you tend to go maddeningly AWOL. As it’s common to get involved with a Virgo, you are probably used to being chided. Still, this keeps you out of even more trouble. Cancer and Scorpio share your romantic ideals.

Let’s Get A Jump On The Week Ahead – Weekly Astrology: March 2-8, 2014

Weekly Astrology: March 2-8, 2014

Turn your frown upside down this week!

Maria DeSimone Maria DeSimone on the topics of venus, mars, astrology

The week may not begin on a happy note, especially when it comes to romantic and partnership matters. Is there any hope at all?

Of course! But you’ll have to wait until Wednesday, when love planet Venus moves into friendly Aquarius.

Sunday, March 2: Venus in Capricorn square Mars Retrograde in Libra and Saturn Retrograde

On Sunday, Venus in sober Capricorn will be at odds with Mars Retrograde in Libra. This incompatible combination between the cosmic lovers might leave you feeling as if you’ll never find the middle ground between you and your sweetie that you hope for. In business relationships expect a gridlock alert!

On the same day, Saturn will turn retrograde, where he’ll remain until July 20. Over these months it’ll be a good idea to retrace your steps around career moves and goals. This will especially apply to partnerships and other collaborations until May 19.

Monday, March 3: Sun in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn

On Monday, there is a light of hope in the sky. The Sun in Pisces will be at a friendly angle to Pluto, allowing you to transform an inspired project in a way that allows its light to shine through.

Wednesday, March 5: Venus in Aquarius

Matters of the heart and friendship get a jolt on Wednesday, when love planet Venus moves into Aquarius, where she’ll remain until April 5. Now, the way to your heart is through camaraderie. Friends first will be a must, but it’s also possible that you’ll be more attracted to those who reveal their humanitarian side more easily. You might work on a group endeavor that has the capacity to benefit the masses, and as you do so you just might meet someone who makes your heart swoon.

Because Aquarius is ruled by tech-savvy Uranus, Internet dating will be a popular way to meet someone special. You might also notice a greater amount of flirty remarks on your Twitter feed!

Thursday, March 6: Jupiter Direct

Then, Jupiter turns direct on Thursday, and you’ll feel like luck is once again on your side. Ah, that’s exactly where it should be!

Daily Cosmic Calendar for February 27th

Stop, look and listen! Back in our calendar on February 3, the information was provided that the largest asteroid — Ceres — would be making a station at 2 degrees of Scorpio and turning retrograde today. That time becomes official at 12:09AM and all Ceres themes — agriculture and gardening, Mother Nature, parent-child and mother-daughter relationships, food, diet and nutrition, productivity and scarcity of natural resources — are accentuated around the exact time and for most of today. [Ceres will remain in reverse until June 1 when it will turn around and go direct at 19 degrees of Libra.] Adding to today’s potency of this important asteroid is its supportive, 60-degree link to Pallas in Virgo (11:21AM). Problem-solving and strategic thinking go hand-in-hand.  One day before Mercury makes its shift to go from retrograde to forward motion, the Moon unites with the Messenger of the Gods planet in Aquarius (12:02PM) — offering a few early benefits concerning communications, correspondence, literary and educational interests. The fine arts, film classics, inspired musical compositions and sacred dance are high on the agenda as the Moon parallels fantasy-prone Neptune (3:08PM).  This day ends on a cautionary note as the Sun parallels Mars (11:21PM) — giving you ample warning of the switcheroo by the red planet on Saturday March 1 when Mars in Libra stops and turns retrograde until May 19. Watch out for overnight discord and volatility that can wreak havoc on the home front. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, February 17

We must focus our attention on managing our emotions now since current relationship dynamics are growing more complex. We may grasp for answers as we watch the mental clarity begin to fade away. Although the practical Virgo Moon helps us concentrate our thoughts, we’re frustrated — perhaps even angry — that progress is immeasurably slow. Luckily, the Moon enters objective Libra at 1:22 pm EST, allowing us to gain a more balanced perspective.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you may spend much of the day hard at work, the action picks up this afternoon as you become more socially inclined. Whether you go out on the town with friends or relax at home with family, at least try to include others in your plans. But don’t get caught in a web of procrastination. If you complete whatever tasks you start as efficiently as possible, you will have more alternatives for pleasure available later on.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Acting in a kind manner is admirable, but obsessing over what makes the most sense can interfere with your overall efficiency. Your current tendency may be to analyze everything too much before making your move. Unfortunately, by the time you finally make up your mind, you might have already run out of options. Instead of worrying about whether to work or play today, just do what comes naturally without bothering with the extra analysis. No one can fault you for being yourself.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Staying home and taking it easy might be too tempting of an idea to resist today. You may be so eager to have fun that you agree to something that really isn’t ultimately in your best interest. But playing hooky from work or school isn’t a smart idea at all, especially if it damages your reputation. Pay close attention to what you must sacrifice in order to fulfill your desires. If the cost is too high, don’t say yes.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

There are simple steps you can take today to bring your life back into harmony. However, your needs are likely to be very different from those close to you now and the sooner you acknowledge what you want, the better it will be for all involved. Talking about your passions will help move the energy, as long as you don’t expect one heartfelt discussion to resolve everything all at once. Remember, the real answers are likely to be found within.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Using your common sense is often a reliable way to help you make the best decisions, but today it may be smarter to take a risk with a less than practical idea. You might start out thinking that your feet are on the ground only to discover that your head is in the clouds by the time evening rolls around. Even if others try to change your mind, listen to your intuition and follow your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have a love-hate relationship today with the same things that usually keep you happily occupied. You may grow bored with your normal work routine now and might try to shake up the regularity of your life by doing things differently. As much as this act of rebellion can be liberating, don’t be afraid to fall back on the tried and true methods if the new ones are not as effective as you had hoped. There’s no harm in experimenting as long as you have a safety net in place.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Tie up as many loose ends as you can before the Moon slips into your sign this afternoon. But don’t try to make a big deal out of everything you do. It’s not for anyone else that you need to finish what you started; it’s to prepare yourself for the emotional whirlwind that arrives tomorrow. You might be too distracted to fully concentrate on the future if you still have unfinished business on your plate.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might be feeling under pressure to finally address unresolved dynamics in your home or family. However, don’t get yourself so worked up now that your happiness depends upon resolution of issues that still require additional work. You are entering an intermediate zone where you can’t go back to the way things were, yet you can’t move forward either. Take a few deep breaths and cut yourself some slack. There’s no exact timetable for the healing of the heart.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to be appreciated and admired for your competence on the job. Ironically, you may need to set aside your personal agenda today to gain the recognition you crave, whether it’s solving a problem at work, hosting a party or just being there for someone special. Rather than seeking approval from your friends or coworkers, put in the extra effort now just because it makes you feel good.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to be appreciated and admired for your competence on the job. Ironically, you may need to set aside your personal agenda today to gain the recognition you crave, whether it’s solving a problem at work, hosting a party or just being there for someone special. Rather than seeking approval from your friends or coworkers, put in the extra effort now just because it makes you feel good.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A paradoxical twist may be added to the mix this week as your feelings deepen while you simultaneously grow more emotionally detached. You might feel anxious at first if you aren’t able to lose yourself into your dreamworld as easily as usual. Instead of worrying about the current state of affairs, be thankful that you can now sink into a challenging dilemma without necessarily being overwhelmed by the situation. Use both your head and your heart to navigate through these tumultuous waters and emerge stronger than before.

The Gift and Curse of Natal Astrology

The Gift and Curse of Natal Astrology

Jeff Jawer    Jeff Jawer on the topics of blogs, astrology

There is nothing like a natal chart to describe one’s personality. One calculated for the time, date and place of birth is a deeply rich and textured picture of psyche, soul, potential and problem areas. The great gift of having your personal Astrology Birth Chart done is the way in which the various drives, needs and desires are expressed so beautifully by the Sun, Moon, planets, zodiac signs, houses and aspects. It’s liberating to recognize individual characteristics as appropriate when they differ from family or cultural models. At its best, a natal chart is a passport to oneself and a source of individual freedom.

Yet a birth chart analysis is, like any other system, a double-edged sword. While it provides self-understanding that can be liberating, it also may have the opposite effect of boxing us in a limiting set of beliefs about ourselves. The key to making the most of Astrology is in how you apply this uniquely perceptive tool.

For example, I was born with the Moon in Scorpio, which represents emotional intensity and going to extremes. Learning this helped me put the powerful feelings I’ve always experienced into a meaningful context. It’s the need of a Scorpio Moon person to dive into the depths of him or herself to discover underlying desires and motivations. What previously simply seemed like a character weakness or neurosis finally had a name and a purpose. I’m supposed to be intense and complex, sometimes pushing emotional buttons, my own and others’.

Breaking free from expectations

Names give things power. “Scorpio Moon” gave a name to my feelings, which made sense out of them. Yet it also became a limiting factor, because I wasn’t supposed to have access to the lightness of a Moon in Gemini or the spontaneity of a Moon in Aries. The gift of self-identification, especially an accurate one, must be handled carefully. It is a tool that can be applied constructively and destructively. This is the risk of astrological analysis: that it describes us so well that we may be stuck with that description. There are, fortunately, some remedies for this.

One is to recognize that we all have a Moon and that we all have feelings. This is the primary truth of our human experience. The shades of difference accorded to each Moon sign are meaningful, but they are not the whole story. Rather than stopping with the symbol, whether it’s the Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Libra or any planetary placement, think of these as starting points. The birth chart represents default behavior; the unconscious responses to life that operate when we don’t pay attention or take responsibility for ourselves. Learning that my Moon is in Scorpio is not an excuse for resentment, jealousy or emotional extremism, but a warning signal. I need intensity, yet part of growing as a person is to express it in healthy ways. The zodiac sign that any planet is in is a gateway to its essence, yet beyond that opening lies a much wider range of expression.

Another remedy is to step away from the restrictive self-identification of the birth chart when it’s not serving a useful purpose. Instead of justifying my stubborn thinking because I was born with cerebral Mercury in fixed sign Taurus, I can recognize when I’m caught in a mental rut and make appropriate adjustments. Instead of reinforcing the behavior astrologically, the awareness a birth chart provides can show us how we’re limited by old patterns and habits and need to change them.

Your Astrology is not absolute

Astrology is a brilliant technology that can be used to reinforce negative traits, which makes it less than helpful. However, when we recognize the chart as a model rather than an absolute rule, we have the freedom to choose how we work with it. This is no different than the ways we use traumas to assess our lives. The child of an alcoholic parent can explain certain behavior because of that experience, but the goal is to use this understanding to move beyond, rather than to reinforce the pattern. When self-identification with Astrology or with any other system empowers us, it’s worth using, but when it becomes a barrier to growth, it’s better to let it go until we can apply it in a more constructive way.

Current Moon Phase for Feb. 11th – Waxing Gibbous Moon

Gibbous Moon

(waxing/135-180 degrees)

Distractions from the outside begin pressing into your world. Analysis is favored, reevaluating all the various factors you are dealing with. It’s a time to process information and effectively integrate your aims with the people in your immediate environment. This is a good time for organizing things. This Moon phase is suited for synthesis: coming up with a practical plan for getting from point A to point B. Adjustment is required.

A Spell To See Spirits

A Spell to See Spirits

To see spirits, old European grimoires recommend mixing together aloe, pepper,
musk, vervain and saffron, and burning this in a cemetery.
We can adapt this for other locations (like those in which the spirit lived) by
adding a bit of sweetgrass or tobacco to a specially prepared incense.
Create the incense on the anniversary of the death of the individual you wish to
This is then burned at 11 am, in the safety of a majick circle that also holds
symbolic items to connect you to the entity.
An incantation to encourage the spirit’s presence is:

“Guardians of the Spirit realm,
hear and guide my plea.
When the witching hour rings true,
bring my relationship, name of person to me.
Other souls who hear my call,
are not welcome in this place.
Only the one known as name of person may enter sacred space.”

Repeat the request three times, twenty minutes apart, then wait quietly for
indications of a presence.
Signs include the scent of flowers, or favored cologne, a cool wind, movement of
curtains, and candles going out or twitching erratically.
Once you feel sure the spirit is with you, do not make it tarry overly long.
Take care of your business, say farewell, and thank the guardians for their
assistance before closing the circle.

A Word of Caution:
Spiritual entities should not be banished or called for amusement.
It is best to contact a knowledgeable, experienced psychic for advice or
assistance before undertaking any spells of this type.
It is used for communication, and understanding the purpose of spirits.
The best times are in-between times, such as noon, midnight, dusk and dawn.
Halloween. Seasons of late fall and winter.
When the Moon is in Libra. Eclipses. Wednesday.
