Happy Birthday, Taurus!
Raising a glass to the zodiac’s pleasure-loving Bull
Taurus, when it’s your birthday it’s time to pull out all the stops. We’re not talking fanfare or loud parties here — that’s not really your style. You do, however, relish the kind of celebration that indulges all of your senses in the most intoxicating way. Your sign, more than any other, has an almost sacred connection to the earth and this physical world we live in. As a result, anything that involves an opportunity to maximize your capacity to taste, touch, smell, see or hear will result in instant bliss.
Aged to perfection
With each passing year you get even better — like a fine wine. What makes you happiest is knowing that you continue to build your own personal legacy and empire as you utilize your special talents in a grounded, enduring way. Since you’re also the money sign of the zodiac, you have a gift for creating lasting wealth. You’ll work steadily to reach any goal, and if there’s one person who’s known for loyalty and perseverance, it’s you. Nothing will stop you once you’ve made a decision or started a project.
Ironically, your greatest strength may also be your weakness. Tenacity can help you achieve unlimited goals, but if you become too locked in your stubborn ways, you might miss out on important opportunities to grow. Remember, when life demands change, the more you dig in your heels, the more you sabotage your soul. Don’t get stuck in a rut! Why not shake things up a bit and try a new place? Believe it or not, you CAN get a gourmet steak dinner and rich chocolate birthday cake at more than one place. In fact, you might be pleasantly surprised!
Just 2+ hours before the dynamic New Moon (energizing 21 degrees of Aries at 2:36AM PDT), Venus and Mars reinforce their recent zodiacal union from April 6 by forming a parallel (12:25AM PDT). A Venus-Mars parallel is similar to a conjunction in the zodiac and can give love bonds an enormous and favorable jolt. Since the Aries New Moon happens close in time to Venus parallel Mars, the next four weeks contain the increasing love vibes associated with a Venus-Mars positive liaison. Nevertheless, you also need to embrace and possibly tweak a Mercury square to Vesta (2:50AM PDT) as well as the monthly union between the Moon and Mars in Aries (6:03AM PDT). If you can avoid hazy investment planning and business negotiations, and steer clear of pressing the angry button in key relationships, then the Moon-Venus union in Aries (9:26AM PDT) can warm your heart and energize creative artistic expression across the board. Of course, the universe gets a thrill out of tossing a cosmic monkey wrench into positive alignments and this morning is no different since the Moon-Venus rapport also starts a void lunar uncertainty zone lasting until 8:23PM PDT. At the latter time, the Moon enters Taurus — the sign of its exaltation. Ties with maternal figures and soul-sisters are activated overnight as the Moon makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with Ceres (exact at 12:12AM PDT tomorrow) while Venus forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Vesta (exact at 1:52AM PDT tomorrow).
Your Charm for Today
This aspect of your life will be strongly influenced by a person who is diplomatic, urbane, romantic, charming, easygoing, sociable, idealistic and peaceable. This person is someone you know socially.
Seventh sign of the Zodiac, Sept 23rd to Oct 24th. Venus is the ruling planet; correct metal, Copper. Those born under Libra’s influence were supposed to be affable, courteous even tempered, painstaking, and with marked perceptive qualities. The Libra stones are the Opal, Chrysolite and Sardonyx. To the ancients the Opal was the Stone of Mystery its flashing and glowing rainbow hues suggested occult powers, and it was regarded as sacred in the East. In India it was believed to strengthen the mind and clear the brain; in Greece to give the wearer the power of prophecy and foresight, and during the 14th century used for strengthening the eyesight.
Saturn Retrograde in 2013
Firm up your foundation instead of starting something new
Saturn, the planet of discipline, limitation, structure and responsibility, turns retrograde every year for about five months. In 2013, the retrograde period will begin on February 18 and will last until July 8. During this time, everything that supports the foundation of your world will be up for review. Sound ominous? Well, don’t panic. Saturn is retrograde for a long time every single year. Unlike the personal planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) the retrograde of outer planets usually don’t have a dramatic effect on our day to day life. Still, the symbolism and significance behind Saturn Retrograde is useful to understand since it will be a time to reevaluate personal boundaries, obligations and goals.
Typically, Saturn Retrograde is not the ideal time to begin new commitments, particularly ones that will affect your status and reputation. It is, however, the perfect time to reassess your existing obligations. Are you rising to the occasion or have you taken on more than you can handle? Since Saturn Retrograde will slow the pace down, you’ll begin to notice whether or not you’re making the grade on current projects. You’ll have an opportunity to improve your strategy and organization on a project that’s meaningful to you. Alternatively, you may take stock in a venture you’re involved in and realize that it’s no longer something you want to remain committed to … and that’s ok! As long as you’re honest about whether or not this endeavor has become a source of pain or obstruction and then act accordingly, you’re using Saturn Retrograde exactly as you should.
Put the business on ice
Since Saturn has a natural correlation to one’s professional status, it is imperative that Saturn is strong and direct when starting any new business venture. You will also want a strong Saturn when you begin anything you hope will elevate your reputation and level of authority. If you start a new business, or major enterprise that will affect your status, there’s likely to be a series of problems attached to it. Success will not be denied while Saturn is retrograde. However it will be quite frustrating to achieve. Whatever you begin will likely require extensive reorganization or a complete restructuring. The foundation of anything is not as solid when started under Saturn’s Retrograde — especially when it comes to business.
This doesn’t mean you can’t achieve any measure of success during the five month stretch of Saturn napping. In fact, as long as you stick to working on existing projects, they can become extremely polished and as a result, you’ll achieve the recognition you deserve. Still, it’ll be a good idea to refrain from launching any brand spanking new business pursuit now.
Calendar dates to circle
During this particular Saturn Retrograde cycle in the sign of Scorpio, there will be an emphasis on revising the structures you have built around your financial and intimate life. Do you have a deep seated fear of success or failure? Now is the time to identify any unhealthy pattern connected to achievement that might sabotage you. There will be a few helpful aspects and some extra challenging ones to cross over the next several months. Here’s a rundown on what is most important for you to navigate:
March 6 and March 28 are days when exceptional gains are possible if you review your existing commitments and reorganize accordingly. On these dates, Mercury will connect perfectly to Saturn allowing you to make a decision about a project and stick to it. On March 6 Mercury will be retrograde and it signals a definite pull to a past obligation or project that may now yield fruit. On March 28 you might put the plan from March 6 into motion.
On April 22 Venus in Taurus will oppose Saturn in Scorpio and this will be an opportunity to reconsider financial and romantic commitments. Are you taking more than you give or do you feel you give until it hurts when it comes to a relationship? Now is the time to honestly examine how the answer to this question makes you feel.
On April 28 the Sun in Taurus will oppose Saturn followed on April 30 by Mars opposing Saturn. With these aspects you may need to relocate your inner authority. If you feel as if a higher up is stepping on your toes or squelching your personal development, it’s time to work through it. That might mean cutting ties from someone who is only holding you back.
Mercury in Taurus will oppose Saturn on May 5 and it’ll be time to defend a decision to an authority figure in your life. Although you may feel insecure, stand your ground and trust that you’re fully capable of making the right choice. Make a commitment to only surround yourself with people who value your mind.
On June 7 Venus in Cancer will trine Saturn and what you’ve decided to see through during this Saturn retrograde phase will now begin to show its rewards. A romantic relationship might become more stable — especially if you’ve worked on building a solid future together.
When the Sun in Cancer and Saturn link up in a friendly way on June 26, your inner and outer authority will blend perfectly. What you see is what you get and everyone around you will respect what they see.
Finally, on July 1 Venus in Leo will square Saturn. A commitment or financial decision might reach a breaking point. A relationship you hold on to merely out of obligation might leave such a bad taste in your mouth. If the love and fun are gone, you know it’s time to move on.
One of the most common mistakes people make when discussing Aquarius is that they assume he/she is a water sign. After all, he/she is the water bearer. But the truth is he/she’s an Air sign and that’s an important detail!
To often you see Aquarius represented as the generic person pouring a jug of water or even worse just the jug of water. There is no hint to the intellectual and cerebral air quality of the Aquarian. As an air sign, she is focused on higher thinking and pushing the boundaries of common and closed thinking. If everyone is going one direction she will go the other in hopes of discovering a new and better way to meet the needs of the greater whole.
We started with a forward moving stance. She is a futuristic, forward thinking woman. Aquarians have no time to look or focus on the past, they focus on the future and believe that however something was done, it could be done differently or better going forward. Seeking to fight for justice and the underdog, our Aquarian is dressed and built to campaign for any cause she feels is under represented or oppressed. She also is a lover of technology and innovation. She is not afraid of technology or gadgets and widgets that can help better our lives. She is quick to adopt them to her arsenal of thought and solutions.
Her water jug is still a very important aspect of her character. Instead of her passively pouring water from it or carrying it on her head, we chose to have her securely sling it over her shoulder. This allows her to bring it into adverse or water starved situations. She knows that despite all the technology and advancements available, humans cannot survive without water. Water is the most powerful source of nourishment for our bodies and souls and Aquarians never lose sight of that. They know that higher thinking comes from well fueled minds – and the mind can be tricked or fooled if starved for water.
Physically our Aquarian is in fighting shape but not because she likes to fight, rather she is about endurance. She relies on her ability to go long stretches of time without rest or nourishment and living solely off her creative vision. She is not a slave to fashion but definitely uses her cloths and accessories to express her inability to conform and desire to pioneer and blaze new trails of thought and visual innovation. She’s creative and a one of kind. Charged with technology she has a single strand of fiber optic hair lighting her way through dark and unchartered territories of thought.
Zodiac Super Power
Our Aquarian’s super power is her technology power hand and fighting physique. She has a leg up on the other signs of the Zodiac because she can see into the future and knows that there is almost always a “better way” to do or see things. Her water is magical and fuels even the most creatively starved thinkers are pushing stalled thought or injustice toward progress.
