Your Daily Planet Tracker: Venus in Leo, Now Until Oct 8, 2015

Planet Tracker

Venus in Leo

Now Until Oct 8, 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 Ancient Symbol Card for October 1st is Solitude

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

Solitude

Solitude is represented by a single person standing at the end of a boardwalk staring out at a vast, empty panorama. They are truly alone, but may not feel loneliness. They are at a place in their life where the need to withdraw from the our secular world is strong, because their focus should be on their inner self, their morality, and their dreams. The view before them is empty, but it is a canvas on which they may paint their future–a future restricted only by the size of their imagination and courage. For them Solitude is a choice. They chose to take the walkway that distances them from the rest of us. It is also a choice that can be undone. Just as they chose to take a path that leads them away from us, they may choose to turn around and come back at anytime.

As a daily card, Solitude suggest a period in which you need to distance yourself from those around you and explore your inner-self, what is driving your day to day life and decide if you are really on the life path that is best for you. This is a time to revitalize your spirit, and draw your dreams for the future.

Your Daily Witches Rune for October 1st is The Blank Rune

Today’s Witches Rune

The Blank Rune

Keywords: Difficulty, pain.

Meanings: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for October 1 is The Empress

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Empress



The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

bw-sowiloYour Rune For Today
Sowilo

The Sun Rune, denotes power and strength. That which you want may be attained. Sowilo also denotes mental clarity and added warmth to your relationships.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Sowilo

sowulo : sun

Phonetic equivalent: s

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: success, positive energy, increase, power, activity, fertility, health

MAGICAL USES: energy, strength, success, healing, fertility

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sunna

ANALYSIS: The sun is held sacred by almost every religion in the world. Its light and warmth symbolize life and growth and all that is good. Norse cosmology describes the sun being driven around the heavens in a chariot and chased by a great wolf, which will devour at Ragnarok. Throughout IndoEuropean Paganism, the sun has frequently been associated with the horse, often described as being carted around the sky by a horse. Both are symbolic of life and fertility, and are usually considered ‘masculine’ in polarity, although in Norse myth the chariot is driven by a girl. The swastika or sun wheel is a constant motif in rock carvings dating Neolithic times, and occurs throughout Europe and Asia. The sun rune itself is a variation on this symbol, and represents motion and energy.

Sowulo marks the end of the second aett, and like wunjo represents success and glory. However, unlike the rest and relaxation of Valhalla, the sun is very much an active symbol. We have reached the end of the aett successfully, and the conclusion is a positive one, but in this case we are fully aware of the changing and transient nature of the universe. We can see the wolf at heels, and we know that we must move on. Here, though, the journeyer may pause briefly in the warmth and light of the sun, absorbing and applying its energy to the work ahead. This time we won’t need to be blasted out of our safe position, but will rather choose to leave it in order to continue on the journey.

Your Daily Tarot Card for October 1 is The Emperor

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Emperor

 

The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…

Your Horoscopes for Friday, October 2nd

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

We have plenty of time to process recent experiences and reconsider future plans because we are moving through a cosmic quiet zone today. Although the restless Gemini Moon keeps our minds running on overdrive, we might not be able to turn our thoughts into action. In fact, we may have one-too-many ideas about what we want to accomplish. Nevertheless, retrograde Mercury has us looking back more than gazing ahead until it turns direct next week.

 

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
You’re cosmically disposed to be a pioneer, bravely exploring unknown territories and eagerly pursuing the rush of doing things for the first time. Today’s fidgety Gemini Moon prompts you to pile on even more activities to your already hectic schedule just for the thrill of it. Although you may thrive on blasting off in several different directions at once, narrowing your focus and concentrating on one challenge at a time now enables you to be even more productive in the future.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
A realistic assessment of what you need versus what you want produces some pretty interesting results today. You understand that life is less complicated when you get by with just the basics, but you’re unwilling to make the adjustments necessary to change your lifestyle. Thankfully, no immediate action is required now; starting with a fresh perspective is enough to make you feel more secure all the way around. Counting your blessings allows you to see how rich you truly are.

 

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
Making an important decision can be challenging today because the dualistic Gemini Moon has you seeing double. Even after you make your choice, a single goal morphs into two very distinct possibilities — just like the mythical Hydra who regrew two more heads each time one was cut off. Fortunately, there’s no need to answer every question posed to you now; some dilemmas are better left unresolved. Keep your options open until Mercury turns direct and your clarity returns.

 

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
You probably sound more certain today than you actually feel. Although you may be inwardly lost in self-doubt, your coworkers won’t realize that anything is wrong. Ironically, you’re likely to receive support from others and be more successful professionally if you share your current concerns now, rather than trying to hide your insecurities. Your best policy is to keep the communication channels wide open and hope for the best.

 

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
Although you Lions often prefer playing in a pack, you might want to venture off on your own today. The truth is you need to maintain your autonomy or you will feel trapped by the very same people you want in your life. Don’t sacrifice your individuality just to be accepted and loved. You will likely need more freedom, rather than less, over the days ahead. Be considerate and let others know your plans, but don’t give anyone a chance to steal your thunder. Fortune favors the bold.

 

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
Maintaining your sense of purpose is a struggle today, even if you have a very clear sense of what you need to do. Nevertheless, circumstances will likely pull you in several directions at once while you prefer to drill down on the details with a singular focus. Simultaneously, responsibilities demand that you spread yourself thinner to cover the workload. You don’t do anyone any favors promising more than is humanly possible. Staying within your lane now is best for everyone involved.

 

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
You may secretly worry that your expectations for the future will be impossible to meet. However, adopting a common sense approach actually enables you to live out your dreams. But this isn’t an overnight project; your long-range planning might take months, or even years, to manifest. If you find yourself growing anxious or restless now, remember the old adage, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Relax; you have more time than you think to create your perfect life.

 

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Sometimes you dive into an emotional situation with such abandon that you lose all sense of perspective. However, you’re capable of being fully engaged without being hooked by someone else’s melodrama today. Your rational approach rewards you with a cool head now, so others may lean on you even more in their times of need. It’s an honor to share your wisdom if you don’t attempt to control anyone else’s life in the process. Your insight is a gift as long as your heart is in the right place.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
You are a pro at gazing far off into the distance, but sometimes miss seeing what’s right under your nose. A close friend or partner may overwhelm you with too much information about something that’s occurring now. Although people might go to great lengths to change your opinion, you can’t help but think that the current events are merely a distraction from your more evolved perspective. Don’t be so quick to judge; instead, acknowledge that you don’t have all the answers and remain open to the pearls of wisdom others can offer you.

 

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
Spending the day talking around the water cooler seems like more fun than actually performing your job today, but idle chatter only leads to major trouble. Thankfully, the loquacious Gemini Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Daily Routine is stabilized by the willful Sun, reminding you of your long list of obligations. Nevertheless, it’s challenging to settle down if you are busy socializing when you should be focusing on your work. Remember, actions speak louder than words.

 

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
You are buzzing with so many creative ideas today that your innovative thinking could lead you in endless circles. You must slow down and take the time to turn your brilliant thoughts into bold action. However, initiating a new project doesn’t ensure success now; you need to follow through on every detail to finish whatever you start. Ultimately, your ambitious intentions are valuable only if you relentlessly keep your eyes on the prize. No one can stop you from achieving your potential except yourself.

 

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
There is so much going on around you now that you might attempt to lose yourself in a daydream for a while. Unfortunately, you are involved in too many activities for you to get very far with your escape. In fact, you may be drawn from one project to another, without having enough time to settle into any of them. Instead of working yourself up into a state of high anxiety, remember that this level of noise won’t last. In the meantime, set your fantasies aside until you put your priorities in order.
