Today’s Psychic Tip
10.25.18: This is a great day for the two of you to begin again. Discuss your plans for the year ahead and grow together as you plan your growth. Are you excited about the future?
Venus represents those qualities we commonly associate with the female/yin persona. Venus traits include fertility and the drive to create, unblemished beauty, love, passion, and togetherness. The occurrence of Venus denotes the dominating presence or need of the qualities listed above. While often very subtle, Venetian influences may have a negative impact unless they are balanced with an influence that can temper the drive of Venus.
As a daily card, Venus suggest you should allow your more feminine traits to guide your actions through this period. Subtlety, efforts to bring people together and allowing your creativity to run free are likely to serve you well at this time. However, like Mars, the powers of Venus are very strong and can do more damage than good if not balanced by other influences.

Your sex life gains some serious momentum today with the appearance of the Strength card. You have tremendous inner strength when it comes to getting what you want, and that includes sexual conquests. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to try out some new moves, the Strength card urges you to act now! There may be some obstacles in your way, but you welcome any and all challenges. Anyone playing hard to get right now is like putty in your hands.
Has someone promised too much and delivered little lately? If so, that someone lacks integrity. Promises that aren’t kept erode trust and trust is critical. You can’t ignore the fact that their actions do not match their words. The first caveat is to avoid being seduced by what someone is saying as they talk their way into your emotions. The second, and the advice now, is to step back and analyze the situation.
Traditionally, the Five of this suit references the grim and sobering process of cleaning up the battlefield after a conflict. The war as a whole has not been won or lost yet, but in this skirmish there were grievous casualties. This card admonishes the loser to study carefully what went wrong, so that a new strategy can be devised and more setbacks forestalled. There is a need to regroup and rethink the game plan, discover your blind spots and weak links, and take corrective measures before getting back into the field for another round.
In these modern times, when the battle is more often being waged with words, laws and contracts instead of weapons, we have even more reason to examine our approach, our style, strengths and weaknesses. If we have underdeveloped communication skills or lose our objectivity in tense moments, our ability to reach our goals and dreams will decline. But, if we avoid letting ourselves be haunted by the misfortunes and detours that inevitably befall us, we will go on to achieve those goals. Do not obsess. Try to learn something.
Your appetite for life and experience is big, but you also know that you have to work to achieve all that you want. Although your emotions run deep, you are a practical person with a sound mind and intelligent outlook. You are charismatic, original, and your interests are many and varied. Your sense of humor is sarcastic. Seldom afraid of a challenge, your approach to problems is to embrace them and then conquer them! You are charismatic, bold, and intelligent. Famous people born today: Glenn Tipton, Marion Ross, Pablo Picasso, Jon Anderson, Minnie Pearl, Katy Perry.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Your mind is often working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself in the period ahead! You find it easier to assert your desires and opinions. However, there can be times when you’re too hasty or impatient. You might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals.
Even so, Uranus finishes its transit opposite your Sun in April 2019, and this can help stabilize your life tremendously. Until then, personal freedom issues continue to be in strong focus. Others may seem to be introducing changes into your life, whether you feel ready for them or not. In truth, you are readier than you think! Changes in how you relate to others on a one-to-one level are essential to your personal growth, even if it feels a bit unstable for the time being. Something you have had to give up might now be available to you again, and you need to decide whether you still want it.
With certain projects, you’re willing to go all in, however, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. This is a good time for serious and determined study and investigation as long as you’re engaged and motivated. You’re drawn to unexplored topics and ideas as well as looking for truths. You’re persuasive, too! You are inclined to do a lot of “digging,” researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. You are especially resourceful and determined.
You are, for the most part, optimistic, helpful, and ready to share your wisdom with others. It’s an excellent year for guiding, learning, and sharing. Big picture planning and thinking are in strong focus and quite excellent.
This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.
Excellent energy is with you for imaginative pursuits. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, too.
You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.
Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship, enjoy stable energies in an existing partnership, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
Relationships are in strong focus this year, and you can find yourself in high demand! This is a year of initiative and energy, and it’s a period of powerful and enterprising ideas. Focusing will be the key to success. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and it becomes you! Do watch for impatience in both your actions and communications, however. You certainly have more courage than usual now, but rushing through things can unnecessarily complicate your life. Creativity blossoms in the period ahead.
