Friday Is Ruled By Venus

 

Friday belongs to Venus, both the planet and its namesake Roman goddess of love. This day is sacred to many other gods and goddesses of love such as Eros, Venus, Aphrodite, and the Norse goddess that gave the day its name, Freya. This day of the week is for magical topics such as love, birth, fertility, and romance. Colors for today include pink and aqua. Some suggestions for Friday enchantments would include:

◦Carrying a rose quartz with you today to send out some gentle and loving vibes to those crabby co-workers

◦Working a loving Tarot spell to charm a friend’s pregnancy with good health and safety

◦Working a little flower magic to enchant a single pink rose for friendship and inner beauty, and setting it on your desk. Or try empowering a red rose for passion and placing it in your bedroom.

◦ Burning rose-scented candles to encourage the same effect. Call on Eros to “bring a passion for life” to your days.

◦Sharing a romantic snack with your partner. Feed each other ripe, red strawberries. Those strawberries are love-inducing food, and are sacred to many love goddesses, including today’s patroness, Freya.

Planet Tracker: Venus in Scorpio, Oct 23 to Nov 16

Venus in Scorpio

Oct 23, 2014 to Nov 16, 2014

 

Traditional astrology considers Scorpio to be a tough neighborhood for loving Venus, the planet of pretty and sweet. Scorpio, however, is not concerned with superficial good looks. It digs below the surface to touch fundamental human issues of power, fear, sex and desire. At this time, the evaluative properties of Venus may be directed beyond social niceties to reach into our deepest recesses and provoke needed change.

Venus and Scorpio share an interest in values. Part of the process, then, is to be more aware of what you get for what you give. Scorpio keeps score in relationships, albeit unconsciously for the most part. Jealousy is a possibility, but so is a level of emotional awareness that casts off illusion and gets to the heart of the matter. It may be necessary to exchange outer harmony for inner truth for relationships to grow and flourish.

Passions are likely to be more intense now. Likes and dislikes move beyond the containment of politeness and “correct” behavior. We are able to connect with gut feelings about what we need and don’t need. One of the challenges is to trust our instincts, even if they push us to rock the relationship boat.

This may also be a good time to resurrect old projects, artistic interests and partnerships. If there is essential value to be found, Venus in Scorpio can help you get it. Outmoded desires can be shed or transformed so that pleasure, love and appreciation rise from the ashes.

Tenacity and focus are Venus in Scorpio qualities found in the charts of athletes Tiger Woods and Chris Evert. Rockers Keith Richards, Jim Morrison, Patti Smith and Neil Young were also born with this combination. The sexier side of Venus in Scorpio is apparent in Bette Midler’s humor, several of Demi Moore’s films and the porn of Larry Flynt and Bob Guccione.

Steven Speilberg, Martin Scorcese and Oliver Stone express their Venus in Scorpio passion by directing movies, while Leonardo DiCaprio, Winona Ryder, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sigourney Weaver, Richard Dreyfuss and Goldie Hawn express theirs by acting in them.

Political Venus in Scorps include Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ed Koch, Jesse Jackson and Gore Vidal. The sign Scorpio’s association with Pluto, the planet of extraordinary wealth, makes it no surprise to find Venus in Scorpio in the birth chart of Bill Gates.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 25th

Welcome to a major transition day for many reasons. As already indicated in this calendar yesterday, the Sun merges with Venus at 2 degrees of Scorpio (12:32AM) while Mercury finally leaves retrograde status by turning direct at 17 degrees of Libra (12:20PM). The previous Sun-Venus conjunction occurred back on January 11 and Venus was in reverse. Today’s alliance is known as the Superior Conjunction of Sun-Venus (from an astronomical viewpoint), and the Earth, Sun, and Venus are lined up in the solar system. One could call this a Full Venus — as it was named by the eminent astrologers Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar many decades ago. Love vibrations are definitely on the rise and you need to channel them with care and wisdom. In the meantime, all Mercury themes are enhanced as the Messenger of the Gods planet escapes from retrograde motion and, although virtual motionless all of today, begins picking up some daily speed over the next few days. Mercury connects with communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as apparent acts of magic, sleight of hand, and theft. Nevertheless, other astro-factors are trying to intrude their presence into this Saturday’s stellar performance. The Moon in Scorpio is void for a little over 12 hours — from 9:12AM to 9:41PM when the lunar orb enters upbeat, fiery Sagittarius. It is during this uncertainty zone that Mercury makes its shift and as the Moon forms its monthly union with productivity-enhancer and nutrition-monitor Ceres (8:22PM). Later on, once the enthusiastic Sagittarius Moon vibes have taken hold, Venus unites with Pallas (10:37PM) — providing a shining light of problem-resolution during the overnight psychic atmosphere.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, October 23

The solar shift each year from Libra to Scorpio occurs usually on this day or October 22. It is a real power-house and intensity-enhancer as Scorpio — the eighth sign of the zodiac — has a reputation for willfulness, tenacity, and the capacity to endure various types of ordeals. The Sun enters Scorpio at 4:58AM and this important solar dynamic is followed by Venus parallel Neptune (8:59AM), a void lunar cycle in Libra happening from 10:23AM to 2:11PM, the Moon parallel Neptune (1:03PM) and Venus (1:42PM), Venus entering Scorpio (1:53PM) until November 16, plus the Moon joining forces with Venus (2:13PM), the New Moon (2:58PM and activating 1 degree of Scorpio, along with a Partial Solar Eclipse 12 minutes earlier at 2:46PM) as well as the monthly Moon-Pallas union (5:56PM). When so many major cycles and alignments occur in a short time-period, you need to be as logical and wise as possible to avoid taking unnecessary detours and missing the opportunity to make significant gains across the board. Except for the nearly 4-hour void-of-course lunar condition, the other sky configurations carry various types of creativity, artistry, and soulful insight. With three more quintile, 72-degree heavenly links occurring tomorrow — to add to the four that energized earthly conditions yesterday — and with an imagination-boosting trine from the Moon to Neptune tonight (11:30PM), the universe is providing you with a vast portfolio of aromatic celestial seasonings.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Sunday, October 19th

Small is beautiful is a special keynote whenever the sign Virgo is being emphasized. After the Moon’s entry into this sixth sign of the zodiac yesterday, the vibrations of this key energy-field are on center stage once again. No matter what your plans may be right now, make sure the littlest details are being considered in order that the end result is a positive one. Helping you reach key objectives is Pallas entering Scorpio (6:12AM) and adding more passion and intensity to your strategic thinking. Mercury parallel to Venus (6:19AM) amplifies their conjunction in Libra from two days ago. Any time Mercury and Venus pal around together, good vibrations often materialize in abundance. Where troubles may trip you up are when Mercury forms a frictional, 135-degree contact with Neptune (12:59PM) and Juno makes an off-kilter, 150-degree link to Neptune (9:11PM). Two major and yet challenging connections from planetary bodies to Neptune can equate with a strong wave of confusion and chaos attempting to wash away your clarity. Do all in your power to stay logical, pragmatic, and grounded. Root out critical views of yourself or others that keep you in a negative mind-set. Fortunately, this day can end on a pleasant note as Venus in Libra and Mars in Sagittarius form one of their infrequent and yet harmonious 60-degree sextiles (10:20PM). Romantic overtures may have the power to awaken a dear one’s heartstrings. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, October 17th

We are out to have a good time as the playful Leo Moon joins up with jolly Jupiter today. The big-hearted Leo energy shines brightly as talkative Mercury hooks up with lovable Venus in friendly Libra. Although everyone seems to get along now, it’s not all fun and games as retrograde Mercury encourages us to suppress our desires. We may feel so vulnerable that we simply deny our negative feelings, hoping the day will slip by without drama.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have an enticing opportunity to spend quality time with people you really like today, but you still need to finish your work before you go traipsing off with your friends. Unfortunately, they can distract you from fulfilling your promises. Thus, it is not a good idea to disrupt your regular routine today. Keep your current dissatisfaction to yourself and mind your responsibilities for now.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You know exactly what you want to accomplish at work today, yet you also must find the time to honor your personal needs as well. You could believe that any deviation from your plan indicates a lack of success, but this line of thought is far from the truth. You might be a bit emotionally disoriented now, so don’t worry if the day unfolds differently than you imagined. Throw all of your preconceived notions out the window and exercise flexibility for a change.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might feel unsettled today because your schedule doesn’t leave much wiggle room for fun and games. You don’t have time to let other people’s troubles hijack your day. Luckily, it’s entirely possible to enjoy yourself while still being emotionally responsive to those you love. Your mental versatility and quick wit enable you to offer your genuine support with just the right words. Trust your heart to tell you when you can gracefully slip away.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s time to reconsider your relationships with close friends or business partners, especially if there are money issues involved. Your desire to iron out the details of a financial arrangement can be complicated by a lack of information or a misunderstanding. Even if you want closure today, it’s wiser to leave things open-ended for now. In the meantime, discussing the various options you have will lead to finding the clarity you seek.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your intentions may be admirable today, but others might misunderstand you no matter how positive you are in your approach. The cosmic culprit is trickster Mercury hooking up with friendly Venus in your 3rd House of Communication. Perhaps people don’t trust your words because your delivery is overly optimistic. Don’t try to convince anyone of your altruistic motives; just maintain your position and your integrity will eventually speak for itself.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The overwhelming uncertainty of your life could undermine your confidence today. Fortunately, you are quite capable of covering your anxiety and hiding your doubts because your key planet Mercury conjuncts gracious Venus in charming Libra. The good news is whatever advantage you may lose to faulty logic now, you gain in charisma and creativity. Fake it till you make it.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Ask precisely for what you want today and you just might receive it as clever Mercury conjuncts your key planet Venus, enabling you to be quite persuasive in your plea. But you may have to risk a little emotional security to be heard, since your attitude is softened by accommodating Venus in your rational sign. Be as specific as possible in your request; the more details you supply now, the better your chances are of success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might misread someone’s intentions today and turn an otherwise insignificant comment into a major drama. Unfortunately, your perspective is so distorted now that it’s challenging to maintain clarity. Blowing things out of proportion only makes things worse. It may be more prudent to wait a day or two before you respond in order to see what happens. Treat every interaction as objectively as possible until you know how it fits into the larger picture.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Too many people requesting too much information from you could give you a colossal headache today. Don’t just make up a story on the spot, for your colleagues will immediately catch on. Honesty is the best policy; share the plain and simple facts to the best of your knowledge and leave it at that. As long as you’re being truthful, you don’t have to know all the answers. Sometimes others just have to figure it out for themselves.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your work plans could fall apart today as you watch the details begin to unravel. Hopefully, you can see this predicament as a positive experience because you are receiving an advanced warning that your ideas need more development. Don’t try to force the issue and glue everything back together. Instead, rethink your strategy before taking corrective action. Believe it or not, facing an obstacle now might be a blessing in disguise.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Someone’s overly dramatic story puts you in an awkward position today if you don’t know how to respond. You want to help, but you’re afraid that if you dig too deeply you might uncover details you wish you didn’t know. However, if you don’t investigate at all, then you won’t have all the facts you need to make a big decision. Prepare for the element of surprise; when the answer finally comes, it may not be what you expect.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Be careful about placing too much trust in your instincts now because a flash of inspiration could steer you in the wrong direction. Although it’s useful to recognize the amazing potential of a current situation, your mind may be playing tricks on you today. Even if you believe you’re seeing the actual path ahead, check out your assumptions with a close friend or partner before doing something you might regret. Asking for another point of view never hurts, especially if you take the advice you receive to heart.
