Your Weekend Love Horoscope for Feb. 21 – 23

Weekend Love Horoscope

February 21-23: Love Inspires

Maria DeSimone   Maria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

On Friday the Moon will be in sultry Scorpio, allowing your mysterious side to express itself beautifully to your mate — or to your first date! The Moon will be at a perfect angle to love planet Venus which will only support a delicious sex appeal factor. On Saturday however, the Moon makes her way into bouncy Sagittarius and your emotions will be fueled by faith more than mystique. You might crave an exotic experience on Saturday or Sunday, and it’ll be a great weekend to try out that restaurant with your mate that offers unusual cuisine from another culture. You might also think about what next adventure you can take together but don’t book any travel plans just yet — remember that Mercury is retrograde until February 28.

Still, on Sunday it’ll be clear that you’re romantically inspired thanks to the combination of a Sagittarius Moon and the Sun embracing Neptune in Pisces. Spend the day with your lover under the covers sleeping late, indulging in breakfast in bed or your other favorite between the sheets activity! Fantasy rules the day so be sure to share your greatest ones with your sweetheart.

Deity of the Day – Poseidon

Deity of the Day – Poseidon

Poseidon

(Neptune)

Son of Cronos (Saturn) and Rhea, he is represented wielding a trident being pulled by monsters in a chariot. After Zeus’ victory over Cronos (Saturn), the gods, who preferred life on earth, divided the various domains of earth. Poseidon chose the seas. He represented the hidden forces of germination and death. Together with his wife Amphitrite, he had powerful ties with Gaea, the Earth, mother of the Titans. As subterranean Gods, they shook the world from inside. Poseidon caused earthquakes when he made love to his wife. The mystery isle of Atlanta belonged to Poseidon. Poseidon could provoke storms, set fire to rocks on shore and create springs of water. He had many children, most wicked and violent, like the Cyclops of the Oddessy.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, December 18th

Our emotions may go unexpressed today, but a lack of communication doesn’t reflect a lack of intensity. The hypersensitive Cancer Moon motivates us to care for loved ones, even if it means shielding them from the truth. Meanwhile, cerebral Mercury forms a creative alignment with fuzzy Neptune, making it hard to know exactly what to say. Unfortunately, being overprotective isn’t the smartest strategy to aid in someone else’s personal growth.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re ready to make something happen, but acting in an aggressive manner isn’t such a wise idea today. Rather than rushing into a new project or activity, allow some time to assimilate what has already transpired over the past few days. Even if you want to demonstrate how responsible you are, charging ahead won’t deliver the message of maturity you wish to send. Paradoxically, you can make your point and accomplish more now by slowing down and doing less.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be so sensitive now to what others say that a good friend could rub you the wrong way with a casual remark. Although the comments might actually be directed toward someone else, it still feels as if you’re the one that’s actually being criticized. Over-personalizing what you hear leads to a misinterpretation of the facts. Taking a more laid-back approach to personal interactions allows you to avoid unnecessary problems.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Hiding your emotions gives you enough space and time to consider your reactions without also feeling like you must share them with everyone else. However, the self-contained Cancer Moon’s presence in your 12th House of Secrets indicates that your imagination is more active today than is apparent to others. It’s not necessary to express everything you’re thinking until you are ready to deal with the consequences of what you say. Exploring your dreams is a wonderful way to get in touch with your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You tend to over-analyze everything you want to say today because you’re concerned about what everyone might think. You believe it’s safer to be discreet than to agitate others with something they don’t really need to know. Nevertheless, a conversation could lead you to disclose more than you intend. If so, remember that it’s better to be honest than to cover your tracks with half-truths and innuendos. Speaking with integrity is your best course of action because your real friends expect you to be sincere no matter what.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may have mixed feelings about helping someone less fortunate today. You might resist at first, relying on logic to give reasons why you cannot jump in as requested. Maintaining a sense of humor can be crucial to offering what is needed now, for a good laugh enables you to dissipate the tension while also doing the right thing. Thankfully, you’re able to follow through with useful assistance in the nick of time; be the friend you want to have.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re experiencing uncertainty about an upcoming business trip or vacation as the tentative Cancer Moon visits your 9th House of Travel. You might try to gloss over important details today because you don’t want to cancel a fun adventure. It’s challenging now to keep everything clear so you don’t end up somewhere lost and far from home. Go ahead and continue making your plans, but scale back your expectations to be on the safe side. Trust your instincts to be your guide.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might not have an outlet to express the emotional intensity you are feeling today. The needy Cancer Moon can be unsettling as she moves through your 8th House of Deep Sharing, stirring your passions. The problem is that patience doesn’t come naturally for you Archers, making it tough to slow down enough now to see where your feelings take you. However, if you ignore your emotions, they’ll just resurface stronger and be even more difficult to handle the next time around. Confiding in someone you trust may be all you need at this time.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might not be able to avoid a friend or acquaintance who asks for help in solving an emotional problem today, even if you would prefer to sidestep this potentially complex situation. But your natural assumption that you need to fix anything is not true. Instead of taking over, encourage others to talk and then show your support just by listening. You don’t have to do anything except receive what’s being said with an open mind and a compassionate heart.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might not be able to avoid a friend or acquaintance who asks for help in solving an emotional problem today, even if you would prefer to sidestep this potentially complex situation. But your natural assumption that you need to fix anything is not true. Instead of taking over, encourage others to talk and then show your support just by listening. You don’t have to do anything except receive what’s being said with an open mind and a compassionate heart.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might not be able to avoid a friend or acquaintance who asks for help in solving an emotional problem today, even if you would prefer to sidestep this potentially complex situation. But your natural assumption that you need to fix anything is not true. Instead of taking over, encourage others to talk and then show your support just by listening. You don’t have to do anything except receive what’s being said with an open mind and a compassionate heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be willing to wait patiently today for something you want because you believe there’s a better chance of finding satisfaction once you can see the whole picture. But the current dynamics aren’t about denying your desire for pleasure; it’s more to do with realizing your dreams. Impulsively taking action could create more problems than good times. Being cautious is wise as long as you don’t let any significant opportunities slip through your fingers in the process.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 17th

Whenever possible, it is always advantageous — from the spiritual perspective — to know the exact time of the Full Moon. This month’s high-tide of the solar-lunar cycle occurs at 1:29AM — activating 26 degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini. At or close to the official time, send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity in need of enlightenment. Think more about fulfilling your higher destiny and what your main role may be in the giant scheme of things.  Adding to the unusual quality of this day is that the Full Moon moment starts an 8+ hour void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 10:18AM when the lunar orb enters Cancer. It is during the unsettled conditions of the void Moon that Uranus at 9 degrees of Aries makes a station — shifting from retrograde to direct motion. [Uranus will keep moving ahead in the zodiac until July 21, 2014 when it will once again reverse itself at 17 degrees of Aries.]  All Uranus themes — revolution and radical change, ingenuity and intuition, inventions, the multi-media, high-technology and computers, avant-garde and eccentric thinking, the unexpected, jokers and jesters, surprises, shock waves, rebellion, agitation and breakdowns (especially regarding the nervous system) — are emphasized throughout the day.  Once the Moon enters its natural abode of Cancer (10:18AM), home and family interests wax in power. However, the obfuscating powers of another outer planet — this time Neptune — come into play as this ancient God of the Seas forms a caustic, 135-degree link with Jupiter (2:20PM). This dicey interaction between major celestial bodies only adds to the carnival-like quality of this Tuesday in December. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 4th

As the day begins, anxiety and stress seem to have the upper hand due to an off-kilter, 150-degree alignment taking place between Pallas in Virgo and Uranus in Aries (12:49AM). Avoid mental fatigue and exhaustion around the time of this celestial contact. Better vibrations intrude into your life thereafter — thanks to the Moon in Capricorn forming a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Neptune in Pisces (3:09AM) while the Moon parallels Mercury (3:44AM) and the Sun makes a 60-degree constructive aspect with Ceres (4:16AM). The Moon-Neptune connection stimulates your psychic sensitivity and creative imagination while the other two aspects can give your correspondence a noticeable lift and enhance your productivity across the board.  Think of bold ways to promote your worldly stature as the Moon makes it monthly conjunction with distant Pluto (3:20PM). Tuning into your spiritual willpower and mental concentration — with an absence of egocentric, know-it-all pride — is one good way of working positively with energy coming from the key planet that rules the unconscious realms of humanity’s intelligence.  The enthusiastic vibes of Sagittarius gain a new cheerleader as Mercury enters this sign (6:43PM) until December 24. Maintain your thinking, attitudes and five senses operating on the highest levels of fortitude and ingenuity. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Festivals of Neptune and Pietas (1st & 2nd)

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments
December 1 and 2

Festivals of Neptune and Pietas

Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.

–Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not rightly understand.

–Leonardo Da Vinci

December 1 celebrated the festivals of Neptune and Pietas. This festival was the equivalent to the one that was held on July 23 at the temple dedicated to Neptune in the Circus Flaminus within the Campus Martius. There would have been games, a sacrifice and more than likely, some sort of horse and chariot race.

Pieta, a Roman Goddess who was the personification of respectful duty, is often portrayed in human form and sometimes accompanied by a stork, the symbol of diferential duty. She was frequently represented on coins, which were considered to be a symbol of the reigning emperor’s virtues. Her temple was in the Circus Flaminus and later at the Forum Holitorium, where her December 1 festival was held.

It was on the 1st of December in 1750 that seven men (for a wager) buttoned themselves into the waistcoat of Mr. Edward Bright of Maldon, Essex, who had expired at the age of 29 and was considered to be the fattest man that ever lived in Britain.

On December 2, Tibetan Buddhists make their annual pilgrimage to the world’s oldest tree in what it known as Bodh Gaya. The tree was planted in 282 B.C., and is believed to be an offshoot of the Bodhi tree–the tree that the Buddha sat under when he attained enlightenment.

Sagittarian Dreams – Bright possibilities emerge with the Sun in Sagittarius

Sagittarian Dreams

Bright possibilities emerge with the Sun in Sagittarius

Jeff Jawer   Jeff Jawer on the topics of sun, sagittarius, astrology

The Sun shifts from deep-feeling Scorpio to farseeing Sagittarius on November 21, marking a turn away from the reflective side of emotions and toward a dynamic expression of our aspirations.

Scorpio is a glass-half-empty zodiac sign that tends to combine concerns from the past and pressures of the present to interpret life as a struggle. Sagittarius, on the other hand, is able to ignore yesterday — and in some cases even the present — to project hope forward to a more desirable future.

The likelihood for fulfillment grows

Transforming Scorpio-style fears into Sagittarian dreams doesn’t happen automatically, though. Even if the shifting cosmic tides start flowing in an optimistic direction, we’re as likely to get lost in them as we are to find the happiness that we seek. Yet when we do Scorpio’s work of diving into our desires, assessing our resources and establishing priorities, the likelihood of achieving fulfillment grows.

This is not a process of denying doubts and fears, but one of examining them, determining which, if any, are useful, and letting go of those that have outlived their usefulness. Eliminating these negatives seems like it should be easy, yet we often are so identified with our wounds that we resist releasing them and turning our lives in a new direction. So much of who we think we are is enmeshed in a sense of limits where even the most consciously desirable freedoms are often resisted.

Do your dreams have a chance of coming true?

Refusing to look forward and dive into the future is only one way we hold back the tides of change. Another way to ensure our lives stay the same is to invest in dreams that have little likelihood of turning into reality. The potential to get lost in clouds of illusion is common with the Sun in Sagittarius, especially this week, when it squares nebulous Neptune on Sunday. This is an indirect and usually unconscious way to undermine progress, because the reward for failing to advance is getting to stay where we are.

A secret to bringing Sagittarian visions down from the clouds is to use the concentrated powers of Scorpio. The focus and determination of the latter cuts through the promises of the former, tapping into the essence of our aspirations. Scorpio is not about what we like; it’s about what we absolutely need. When a dream goes from being a vague hope to a detailed picture of desire, it finds the soil in which it can take root. The obstacles that stand in the way of achieving our goals are broken down by the intense commitment and drive that’s at the heart of Scorpio.

Look back with courage and forward with faith

When we think about the future, we usually don’t want to look back. Yet when we use the model of the zodiac sign preceding the one that we’re in, we will often determine whether we advance, stay stuck or regress. The promises of Sagittarius grow from the depths of Scorpio, and it will draw sustenance from the hunger or struggle it represents.

This reminds us that there’s little value in drawing a line between positive and negative, as they are essential parts of one another. The alchemy of achievement is created when both the faith to look forward and the courage to look back are a stirred together in the pot of possibility.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, November 21st

With a major portion of today occurring with the Sun in the last degree of Scorpio, it is a good time to reflect on your gains and losses of the past four weeks. Have you excelled at exploring the depths of your consciousness in order to eliminate old fears and doubts that may be blocking the flow of your creative artistry? Are you more adept at tuning into your spiritual willpower and mental concentration to be an entrepreneur with clout and finesse?  Steer clear of questionable investment offers as Vesta makes an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with often hazy Neptune (7:43AM). The Moon in Cancer continues a primary focus on healing old family wounds and pains.  A big change happens at 7:49PM when the Sun leaves watery Scorpio for fiery Sagittarius. Don’t be too surprised if you feel a sense of relief that some of the recent tensions may be in the process of dissolving away. A happy-go-lucky disposition is the right frame of mind to have during the monthly lunar conjunction with providential Jupiter (8:00PM).  Avoid overdoing a good thing a couple of hours later when the Sun makes a frictional, 45-degree tie with Venus (10:17PM). Keep a low profile overnight and avoid the social scene as the Moon begins a void uncertainty zone at 11:12PM that lasts until 3:58PM tomorrow. [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.]
