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 Virgo, Sept. 5th to Sept. 29th

Planet Tracker

Venus in Virgo

Sep 5, 2014 to Sep 29, 2014

 

Venus is about love and relationships, while Virgo deals with life’s more practical matters. Superifically, this can be interpreted, then, as a period in which passion may give way to the mundane affairs of daily life. However, Virgo’s traditionally chaste image is not nearly so virginal as one might expect. It is, after all, an earth sign that appreciates the healthy functions of the human body, including sexuality.

A more balanced view is that Venus in Virgo is a time when pleasure is derived by understanding the fine details of life, be they related to love or work. An appreciation for refinement in the arts, food, nature and people is more likely during this period. This can help further the development of skills and techniques in all areas of creative expression.

In personal relationships Venus in Virgo can correspond with excess criticism. The idea is to take the sharpened perceptions of the moment and apply with a constructive, rather than destructive, attitude. In this way so-called “faults” are not reasons to tear down a person, but to clarify the issues that need attention and adjustment. This positive approach can make this a time in which relationships grow through greater awareness of what makes them tick and, thus, help to iron out the kinks. Passion flows more freely when obstacles are removed. Work makes way for love.

That handy expert in life’s little refinements, Martha Stewart, was born with Venus in Virgo, as was fellow foodie Julia Child. Tennis champions Martina Navratilova, Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe, and the great conqueror of more than basketball, Wilt Chamberlain, also have this in their birth charts.

Hollywood couple Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas share Venus in Virgo, along with singers Chrissie Hynde, Joni Mitchell and Linda Ronstadt. Ms. Perfect Julie Andrews is a different kind of Venus in Virgo singer, as is Luciano Pavarotti. Penny Marshall, Carrie Fisher, Catherine Deneuve, Robert DeNiro, Robert Redford and Chevy Chase also belong to this group.

Conservatives Jesse Helms, Jerry Falwell and Casper Weinberger represent one end of the poltical spectrum, while George McGovern and William Kunstler come from the other. Ex-football coach Jimmy Johnson is a perfectly coiffed example of Venus in Virgo precision, but revolutionary rocker John Lennon reminds us that these symbols can stretch to include less conventional forms of personal expression.

Venus In Virgo

Venus in Virgo

The love planet gets practical in earthy Virgo

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of virgo, venus, love, astrology

Love will take a practical turn when amorous Venus moves into earthy Virgo on Sept. 5, 2014. Romance won’t be as fiery and playful as it is with Venus in Leo, but this transit does give us an opportunity to work harder on our partnerships.
Venus, of course, is the planet of love and relationships. And Virgo is the analytical sign that focuses on life’s more practical matters. So combined it means this is the time to work on the nuts and bolts of our partnerships — and to have those deep “how can we compromise better” or “where is this going” talks that many of us find difficult.

All this critical relationship analysis doesn’t sound very sexy, but Venus in Virgo can in fact be passionate. That’s because Virgo is an Earth sign, which is all about appreciating food, art, nature and people. In fact, we appreciate the best of those things with Venus in Virgo, and that includes sex. So just don’t expect any “quickies” right now.

The negative side to Venus in Virgo is that nitpicking our partners is possible, because we find it harder to let the small things go. But if you can try to keep the excess criticism under control and think positive about any constructive criticism coming in, then you can simply use this time to make adjustments with your partner, and it can change your relationship for the better moving forward

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for September 5th

It would be great to report that all is well from the astro-psychic perspective and you can go about your business without interference from the higher powers of the universe. However, two of the goddesses of our solar system get into a fight early on when Venus in Leo forms a potentially abrasive, 45-degree link with Juno in Cancer (1:45AM). This does not augur well for a happy 24-hour time-period — especially concerning primary partnerships, the arts, social activities, and shared human emotions. Meanwhile, Jupiter in Leo forms an off-kilter, 150-degree connection with Pluto in Capricorn (3:24AM). Happening less than 2 hours after a Venus-Juno tussle, the cosmos now brings into play male-oriented, battle-of-supremacy vibrations — where unfortunate displays of egocentricity and brash foolishness take the place of wise business, educational, and professional advances on the chessboard of life. Adding to today’s slide into awkwardness is a void lunar cycle in Capricorn that begins at 8:09AM and continues until 5:00PM when the Moon enters airy, service-accentuating Aquarius. During the 8+ hour void lunar uncertainty zone, it is sensible to complete odds and ends while keeping exciting new plans under wraps. Look to a Venus shift into Virgo (10:08AM) — a cycle that remains in effect until September 29 — as a magnification of the Solar Virgo theme of organization, order and efficiency. The Moon in Aquarius (5:00PM) over the next two days can provide opportunities to excel in team sports, group projects, community events, volunteer work, and humanitarian causes that resonate with your philosophy of life. Healing energy and investment planning are back on center stage — in a highly favorable manner — later on due to a harmonious trine between Vesta in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces (10:31PM). Because Juno is in the third water sign of Cancer and about to trine Chiron tomorrow, a Vesta-Juno-Chiron grand triangle in the heavens is embracing humanity as the world morphs into an otherwise volatile weekend. Pointing to possible overnight anxiety is an abrasive, 135-degree link between lovely Venus and jack-in-the-box, wound-up Uranus (11:50PM). Strive for serenity to the best of your ability.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, August 18th

The carnival-type atmosphere that was at work yesterday returns in spades today. The early hours are a total mixed bag of positive and negative forces squashed together in a fairly short period of time. The cosmos tries to placate you by offering snippets of good vibes via Mercury forming a supportive, 60-degree link with Juno (2:54AM) and an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Saturn (5:29AM). The Moon in versatile Gemini offers its version of happiness by making constructive, 60-degree ties to Jupiter (5:34AM) and Venus (6:13AM). The problem is that this is almost a veneer or cover story to prevent you from realizing the potential harm that can ensue from Vesta squaring Jupiter in fixed, power signs (6:46AM) and Mercury forming its annual opposition to sometimes loopy Neptune (8:41PM). Under these peculiar circumstances, you want to definitely hold off on making long-term commitments or signing legal documents. The universe makes one more attempt at undermining your discernment by creating a soulful and possibly prosperity-inducing parallel between Venus and Jupiter (6:43PM). If you didn’t have to deal with the possible trauma resulting from Vesta square Jupiter and Mercury opposite Neptune, then the Venus-Jupiter parallel would be up for an Academy Award. However, to toss it into a day when trouble-making planetary fisticuffs are intense is truly adding insult to injury. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Sunday, August 17th

If you like roller-coaster rides, then you will probably enjoy what the universe has in store for humanity over the next 72 hours. To keep a large percentage of our species on an even keel and potentially happy-go-lucky, positive celestial seasonings occur throughout the day as Mercury forms a supportive, 60-degree tie to productivity-enhancer Ceres (2:03AM), the Sun makes an inspirational, 72-degree liaison with investment-savvy Vesta (8:31PM), and — drum roll please — Venus manages to form its superb and highly opportunistic, annual union with Jupiter (10:22PM), this year at 8 degrees of Leo. However, going against these favorable vibrations are the cosmic contingent of a jarring Last Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (activating 25 degrees of Leo and Taurus at 5:27AM), Venus making an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with Neptune (8:09M) followed by a 90-degree square to Vesta (8:17PM). Plus, the Last Quarter Sun-Moon Phase also starts a void lunar uncertainty zone that continues until 3:42PM when multi-faceted Gemini Moon begins in earnest. There are certainly contradictory impulses at play tonight since Venus is at odds with Vesta while the Sun maintains a support system with this key asteroid. Despite the shenanigans at work in our astro-psychic environment, do your best to take advantage of Venus merging with Jupiter since this is the kind of planetary conjunction that dreams are made of (to paraphrase Humphrey Bogart’s character from the film classic The Maltese Falcon). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
