Friday Is Ruled By Venus

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.

Daily Planet Tracker: Venus in Leo, Now Until July 18th

 

 

 

 

Planet Tracker

Venus in Leo

Now Until Jul 18, 2015

 

When Venus is in Leo, love shouts its name from the rooftops. There’s little subtlety about this combination, since the planet of relationship and beauty is passing through the sign of dramatic expression. Expect your romantic life to be a bit more colorful these days, regardless of your birth chart.

Leo, a fire sign, is about risk. So, Venus’ placement here is a reminder to take some chances with creativity and openings of the heart. Sure, it’s possible that you’ll go overboard and let your imagination turn a mild flirtation into the love affair of the century. But, that’s part of the fun of Venus in Leo.

We’re not here now to play it safe, to carefully monitor and control our feelings, but rather to recapture the hopefulness of childhood. This is a time when wounds may be set aside (at least partially), allowing us to let love flow without restriction or fear. Excesses are possible, even likely, but a truly open heart only leads to greater opportunities to share, connect and create.

Venus in Leo reminds us that we need to be adored now, not just simply liked or appreciated. Pride expands, which can, of course, lead to hurt feelings if one does not receive adequate recognition. Be generous in giving praise, while allowing others to show their appreciation of you, as well. The challenge here is to combine the willfulness of Leo with the responsiveness of Venus. Successful relationships are based on listening, something worth remembering at this time.

The dramatic expression of Venus in Leo can be readily seen through a collection of people who exemplify this combination. The wildly inventive Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi (“gaudy”) personifies the joyous creativity of Venus in Leo. Show biz icons Lauren Bacall, Bob Fosse, Barbara Walters and Tom Cruise are also part of this group.

Gestalt guru Fritz Perls was born with Venus in Leo, as were designers Joshua Logan and Pierre Cardin, author Jacqueline Susann, artist Andy Warhol, financier Michael Milken and magician David Copperfield.

Venus in Leo includes superstar performers Whitney Houston, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Paula Abdul. With Venus in Leo, Amy Fisher, Xaviera Hollander, John Holmes, Jessica Hahn and Pamela Anderson have achieved fame through sex. Yet, the higher side of Venus in Leo love is found in the charts of the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa and Mary Baker Eddy.

Your Weekly Karma Forecast for June 28 through July 4

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

6/29 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (unique):

This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different; shake up your routine. Seek out diversions; try something new! Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy will be stimulating, unusual and probably short-lived. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

7/1 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (truth):

This is an extremely powerful energy that makes you very mentally “present” to the fact that both your values and your truth are shifting. You can connect to material abundance. This is usually a pleasant shift because it is about expanding your sense of authentic beauty, as in nature, and the interrelatedness of all living things. There is an energy of enthusiasm around new or growing relationships which attracts more positive energy. This is the best time to create and “expect miracles”!

7/1 ~ Sun (authenticity) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):

This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically. Take time to meditate and be still, quiet and alone. You may feel compelled to do things today that have no direct benefit for you; finding satisfaction in giving. Just be sure to ‘help those who help themselves’. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come thru to you.

7/2 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):

This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas; allow spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

7/3 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You’re focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.

2015 Summer Love Horoscopes

 

 

2015 Summer Love Horoscopes

Learning lessons in love

This summer starts off with a heavy dose of passionate sunshine but just when you think you’re home free things may start to take a turn. Venus, the planet of love and relationships, is due for her retrograde phase and it’ll take place between July 25 and September 6. As a result, for most of the summer it’ll be more about learning lessons in love than enjoying hot and heavy endless summer nights. Try not to see this as a total downer though. In fact, there will be a golden opportunity to take stock of where you are along your personal romantic journey and appreciate it in a whole new light. Try not to focus exclusively on how far you have yet to travel, but also acknowledge how far you’ve come. And with Venus retrograde in Leo remember the ultimate lesson she is trying to teach all of us: self-love. Read more about what this summer has in store for your love potential by checking out your sign’s forecast!

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

You, more than any other sign, will likely look back at this summer and realize pivotal developments occurred in your love life — the kind that changes the landscape of it forever. Everything looks as happy as can be as the summer kicks off. Both Venus and Jupiter — the two beneficial planets — will move together through your 5th House of True Love and Pleasure. Jupiter leaves on August 11 but Venus will hang around for quite some time. Pay attention to events near June 29 when Venus connects perfectly to Uranus, now in your sign. A happy, unexpected development in love can take you to new heights.

Things begin to turn on June 14 however when Venus squares off with Saturn. Perhaps you’re struggling in a romantic relationship that you prefer to keep lighthearted and fun, while your lover wants something deeper. Suddenly the party appears to be over and the two of you will need to figure out if this is a summer fling or something more substantial.

No matter what’s happening in your love life, you’ll have plenty of time to figure things out once Venus moves retrograde back into your 5th house on July 31. Until September 6, you will be forced to re-assess your love life situation as well as your capacity to give love to someone. If opening your heart has been difficult this retrograde, it will hurt just enough to challenge you to overcome what is holding you back the most in the love department. Ready or not, here it comes. Are you strong enough to love with all you’ve got? The Universe thinks so. Mars will be moving into Leo and your 5th house between August 8 and September 24, giving you the heart of a warrior.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

On July 18, love planet Venus will be making a short appearance in your true love sector. You might be convinced a grand romance is about to get off the ground but the truth is, there’s not enough steam to get anything moving in the direction you’d like. The problem is that Venus will enter your romance sector and immediately begin slowing down, preparing to turn retrograde on July 25. Although it seems as if you have some type of action potential in the romance department, you may quickly realize that your attention needs to remain focused on a domestic situation. A relative might need your support as he or she struggles to resolve a problem that you thought was resolved. This situation will likely take up so much energy that until Venus turns direct on September 6, matters of the heart will not be a priority at all.

Don’t worry about your summer turning into a major dud as far as romance goes. See this instead as a vital cycle you need to go through to fix a major family situation once and for all so that after September 6, you can once again focus on your love life. The opportunity won’t be lost — and you’ll see this for yourself after September 13 when a gorgeous Solar Eclipse lights up your true love sector. By then, lucky Jupiter will also be in the same part of your chart (he enters your 5th house on August 11 and you just might experience the greatest love of your life!

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

This summer will have some bright spots as well as potentially cloudy weather when it comes to romance. The good news is that from the start of the summer until July 18, Venus will move direct in your 3rd House of Communication. You’ll have a gorgeous opportunity to get to know someone special through stimulating conversations that last until the wee hours of the morning.

The problem is that Venus, which rules your true love sector, will turn retrograde on July 25 and will not turn direct until September 6. This is like throwing a wet blanket over the flames of fire that any summer romance has to offer. You might have trouble making up your mind when it comes to any important decision you and your partner must make together. If you’re talking about deepening the relationship or making any kind of commitment on paper, this will be a time of heavy revisions and second guessing. Do your best not to make final decisions on anything that involves you and your sweetie signing contracts together.

Then, from September 17 until early fall, Mercury will turn retrograde right in your true love sector. You might end up communicating with an ex and wondering whether or not the two of you should give things a second chance. This will also make it difficult for you and your partner to agree on a vital decision that involves one of your children if you have any together. Perhaps the best course of action for you this summer is to go with the flow. When it comes to love, take things as they are and live in the moment. But don’t ignore the lessons.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

For the better part of the summer you’ll feel sexier than ever! On June 24 until August 8, Mars, the planet of assertive energy and the planet ruling libido, will move through your sign. This is a once in two year event, so don’t waste its amazing potential. For starters, anything you initiate during this time will likely succeed since you’ll have unparalleled stamina and confidence. Your sexual energy will be high and it’s likely that you’ll put out vibes to someone you’re attracted to without even realizing it. The good news is that it’ll be almost impossible to resist you during this time. So if there’s someone you have your eye on go ahead and make that first move!

There are two “ouch” days when it comes to love that you’ll want to make note of. This will be especially difficult if you’re single or newly dating someone. On July 14 and again on August 4, Venus will square off with Saturn. Loneliness or disappointment in matters of the heart are possible.

If you’re in a committed relationship, pay attention to events that happen near the Full Moon on July 1. It’ll fall in your partnership sector and things between you and your mate are likely to be extra emotionally charged. If you and your love are at a breaking point as a couple this might be a time you decide to spend time apart in order to think things through. Or, you may end the relationship altogether. Either way, this Full Moon signals a vital turning point between you and your partner.

Fortunately, a New Moon in your sign on July 15 will help infuse you with even more optimism for a brighter tomorrow. If you and your partner have decided to stick it out, this lunation will help clean the slate and allow you to begin anew in life and love. Yes!

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Make the most of early summer Leo because the Universe has a major lesson in store for you when it comes to matters of the heart. But first, the good news. Until July 18, love planet Venus will continue moving direct in your sign making you the “fairest of them all.” Your magnetism will be irresistible and you may also decide that it’s time to spruce up your appearance. Go ahead — use this time to strut your stuff and get noticed!

Once July 31 hits, everything takes on a different tone. Venus will have gone retrograde and on this day she’ll backpedal into your sign again, where she will remain in retrograde motion until September 6. During this time, you might second guess everything you thought you knew as it relates to partnership and romantic matters. You might have a major lesson that involves learning more about what you have to offer a person in a relationship that isn’t so much on the outside but rather, within.

If you’re trying to buy love, that tactic will likely blow up in your face now, leaving you struggling with feelings of worthlessness. You’re meant to learn that you are good enough to love and be loved without all of the fanfare, bells and whistles. This may not be an easy lesson but if you’re able to work through it you might find on the other side an opportunity for true, meaningful love. Mars enters your sign on August 8 and remains there until September 24, giving you the courage to pursue love in a way you might have been too afraid to in the past.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Are you struggling with a romantic relationship that, for one reason or another, you feel must be kept under wraps? If you’re involved in a secret affair or, if you’re pining away for someone you know you can’t truly be with, then this summer has a few lessons in store. On July 25, love planet Venus turns retrograde in your sign and on July 31, she’ll slide back into Leo and your 12th House of “All That’s Hidden.” Until September 6, you might have a bit of soul searching to do connected to a romantic relationship that’s either unhealthy to be in or more of a fantasy than reality. If you’re caught up in a situation like this, it’s time to ask yourself why you think it’s good enough for you. Don’t you deserve a relationship that has substance? A relationship that you can shout out to the world you’re actually in?

Perhaps there’s a deeper issue at work that you’ll need to muddle through. Maybe, your fear of love and of being hurt in love is so overwhelming that you put yourself in a position where you are always loving someone from a safe enough distance, thinking you’re protecting your heart. You’re only fooling yourself if you think that’s the case and this summer, you’ll need to face these issues head on. The good news is that a Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 13 will be your personal fresh start in all areas — including relationships.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The summer will kick off with plenty of thrilling potential for romance and pleasure! Social opportunities will be abundant. If you’re single, you’ll have an excellent chance to meet someone special at a party, or other fun event. Pay attention to June 29 for sparks to fly if you’re in a relationship. On that day, love planet Venus will be at a gorgeous angle to the electrifying Uranus. Make the most of this stimulating aspect and dare to do something with your partner that takes both of you out of your comfort zone.

Until July 18, you’ll enjoy opportunities to make a romantic connection with someone through your social life. Pay close attention to developments on July 1, when Venus and Jupiter embrace.  A friend may offer to set you up with someone and it’s also possible that you’ll entertain the prospect of going from friends to lovers with a close pal. If you do make a move in this direction however, expect some re-adjustments between July 31 and September 6 when Venus moves retrograde through your friendship sector. Another possibility, is that one of your friends will meddle with your love life so much that it threatens to damage it. If a situation like this arises you might end up breaking up with your friend.

Mercury will also retrograde in your sign as the summer draws to a close. After September 17, be especially careful how you communicate to your partner. Messages can easily be misconstrued.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

With Saturn moving through the final degrees of your sign until September 17, getting things right in the relationship department has a certain sense of urgency. You know that time is running out and if things have been rocky between you and your partner, something must change this summer or else the relationship may no longer be salvageable. A specific problem that you might have with your mate, is feeling a lack of support as you pursue a professional goal or re-evaluate your career prospects entirely. He or she might not be doing much to boost your ego during a time when it may be quite fragile. Insecurities about your future career path might prompt you to put up higher walls — walls that only frustrate your partner even more. Decisions need to happen near July 14 and again on August 5 when Venus squares off with Saturn. You might be in a position where you have to deal with something professionally out of financial necessity. Resentment in your relationship may continue to build throughout the summer if you aren’t able to take a step back and untangle the knot that somehow complicated your love life.

If single, a Full Moon on August 29 might bring feelings for someone special to a new level of awareness. It’s possible that a romance could blossom once you acknowledge your spiritual connection with this person.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

From June 24 until August 8 you may feel a strong urge to go deeper in your relationship — both physically and psychologically. You and your partner might have a great connection but intimacy is a delicate process that continues to unfold over time. This summer, it’s likely that you will make it a priority to go where you have not dared go before. This might also have to do with a drive to explore a more taboo or erotic side of your sexuality with your partner. If you’ve feared doing this in the past, thinking it would scare off your mate, now you may change your mind. One thing is certain — your sex life will have a significant opportunity for enrichment!

Pay attention to romantic opportunity on June 29 and again on August 19. If single, it’s possible that someone who is not your usual type will completely enthrall you. Also, on July 1, a delicious love connection is possible as you embark on a new adventure that will expand your horizons. If you miss the boat on July 1, you’ll have another opportunity on August 4. After September 17, don’t bother talking to your friends about your love life. They might only offer unwanted, confusing advice.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

If you’re married or in a committed relationship, things are about to heat up this summer! On June 24 and until August 8, Mars will move through your partnership sector. This event only happens once every two years and during this time you’ll be motivated to spice things up in your love life. There’s a good chance that you’ll stir the pot more and initiate arguments. It’s also possible that you’ll come across as more selfish during this time which may infuriate your partner.  Still, the good news is that if there’s anything you and your partner need to work through it will not be swept under the rug. And the makeup sex? Off the charts! A New Moon in the same part of your chart on July 15 will stimulate a fresh start in your relationship. Or, if you’re dating someone, it’s possible you’ll decide to make it exclusive.

On July 8, you’ll have a rare and incredible capacity to be on the same page spiritually, intellectually and physically with your mate. Don’t waste it! Pay close attention to Venus as she retrogrades through your 8th House of Joint Finances between July 31 and September 6. It’s possible that you and your partner will have to re-evaluate money matters that have to do with sharing resources, debt or investments. Don’t make new investments together during this time and if you’re newly dating someone wait until this phase is over before you make the decision to move in together or start sharing bills.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

It’s time to seriously re-evaluate where you are in your marriage or committed relationship and to patch up any holes there might be in your union. Also, if you’re dating someone you might have second thoughts (or cold feet) about whether or not you should commit. Love planet Venus will turn retrograde on July 25 and between July 31 and September 6, she’ll move retrograde in your 7th House of Partnership. This is a significant opportunity to figure out whether or not you’re going through the motions in a relationship or if you’re truly connected with your mate on a heart level.

It’s possible that you’ll experience a test during this time that leaves you wondering just how strong your bond is. The thing to remember, is that if the two of you truly have love and mutual respect for one another you will not only get through this time, but you will come out of it stronger than ever. Remember, you’ll also have Jupiter continuing to help ameliorate any potential difficulties in this area of your life — and that is true until August 11. Use this to your advantage. You’ll have both of the lucky planets in the zodiac supporting your relationship potential! Even if Venus is retrograde it doesn’t have to symbolize trouble. It may actually symbolize the resolution of a situation that the two of you didn’t know how to fix in the past. August 14 is a gorgeous new beginning for you in your relationship. Also, be sure to take advantage of Venus and Jupiter embracing in your partnership sector on July 1 and again on August 4. Love can and will conquer all!

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This will most certainly be an eventful summer for you when it comes to love and relationships. First, whether you’re single or attached, get ready for passion! Mars, the planet of assertiveness, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure on June 24. He remains there until August 8 and during this time your number one priority will be having FUN! Your sex life will become much more eventful. If you’re partnered up, expect to have much more fun in bed. If single, there will be no shortage of opportunity to “get your groove back.” A New Moon in your true love sector on July 15 might bring someone special into your life if you are currently unattached. Make the most of social opportunities!

The major headline news for you however, will happen on August 11. That’s when Jupiter, the planet of gifts and blessings, will enter your 7th House of Partnership for the first time in twelve years! For the next year, you will enjoy a special dose of protection and happiness potential in your relationship. If things are already going well between you and your partner you can expect them to get even better. You might decide to move in with someone, get engaged or even marry under this influence. If, however, you’re not in a good place in your relationship, this transit won’t heal what is already broken. On a positive note, if a relationship ends during this time it will most likely end peacefully. Pay attention to the Solar Eclipse in your 7th house on September 13. A whole new world might open up for you in your relationship. Wow!

Venus Shadow starts today!

Venus Shadow starts today!

 

a message from Dana Mrkich
To view more of Dana’s insight, visit her website, DanaMrkich.com

Today Venus enters the territory over which she will retrograde as of July 25, heralding the start of the ‘Venus shadow’ period. Venus Retrogrades happen just under every couple of years, and offer a fabulous opportunity to review, reshuffle, rewire, heal, clear and transform all that is Venusy: love, relationships, self-love, self-value, self-worth, our inner feminine qualities, how we view ourselves and others as women (both individually and collectively), our ability to receive nourishment, nurturing and pleasure, and express ourselves creatively.
Venus is most commonly associated with love, but really she stands for the Feminine, which ultimately affects everything from our relationships to our income, abundance, health, happiness and heart fulfillment.

 
The simplest way of looking at how a Retrograde phase works, including its Shadow periods, is: Let’s say you are driving from San Diego up to San Francisco. You pass through LA but a couple hours later in Santa Barbara you realise you forgot something in LA! So you head back there, pick up what you need, and resume your drive up the coast. Eventually you cruise past the spot in Santa Barbara where you had to turn around, and then it’s into fresh new territory from then on!

 
So the patch of road between LA and Santa Barbara is one you will end up driving on three times: heading up the first time, reversing to get your forgotten stuff, and then heading up again. These 3 drives represent the Pre-retrograde Shadow, the Retrograde phase itself, and finally the Post-retrograde Shadow.

 
Most people know about the Santa Barbara back to LA part of a retrograde, but don’t know about factoring in the two Shadow periods to help understand life changes and inner shifts during this time.
Today Venus is at 14 degrees Leo, let’s call this spot LA. She will travel up to 0 Degrees Virgo, let’s call that spot Santa Barbara. She retrogrades on that spot on July 25 and back she goes.

 
On 6 Sep she reaches LA (14 degrees Leo), goes direct, and on 9 October she clears Santa Barbara after reaching to 0 Degrees Virgo again, officially marking the end of her Shadow period.

 
Dates for your Diary:
⦁ 22 June – 24 July: Venus is Direct but in pre-Retrograde Shadow
⦁ 25 July – 5 Sep: Venus is in Retrograde
⦁ 6 Sep – 9 Oct: Venus is Direct but in Post-Retrograde Shadow

 
How this will affect you will depend on a) where 14 Degrees Leo – 0 Degrees Virgo is in your Astro Natal Chart. (You can view that for free at astro.com) and b) what is most needing to clear/shift/transform/awaken within you at this time Feminine Energy wise.

 
A lot of relationships tend to go through a review phase at this time, and ex-loves may make an appearance. Rather than look at this as being purely about those relationships the bigger picture is about: what are these relationships/people/dynamics/patterns you’ve held trying to bring to your awareness about your own Self?

 
As your Feminine shifts so too will the way you perceive yourself, including your awareness around what you have accepted for far too long (be it re relationships, income, people treating you less than you deserve, over-giving, under-receiving etc). With that may come some grief, sadness, anger or self-blame which is good to acknowledge and release but no need to get stuck in those emotions. The real gold lies in what is wanting to emerge from underneath those emotions: your emerging, strong, passionate, creative, worthy, valuable Feminine Energy. This affects both men and women.

 
Pay attention to any themes that come up over these three periods as they will most definitely have a message for you!
