Get your mask and oxygen tank on, as one thing is for sure – we are diving into the deepest depths with little inkling of what we will find…The territory we are swimming in includes our experience of ourselves as sexual and relationship beings, and how we express this in our daily life and in our intimate relationships.Read more
The week beginning October 7th has some rocky energy for relationships. On the one hand, that can help get things moving, while on the other it could present challenges. Those with important relationship planets and points in the early degrees of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) would be most affected, as are those whose partnerships are in a more vulnerable place.Read more
Finally the potential for some movement in relationships – particularly romantic ones! Even if they weren’t on your agenda, you might suddenly start thinking about them. If you are in an intimate relationship, it’s a lovely time to plan some romantic social time together – maybe a trip away, or a dinner somewhere special, or a weekend at your favorite location…If you are single and would like an intimate relationship, this is a great time to make the effort to be a little more social at events you enjoy.Read more
The time for niceties is over, for now! We have entered a time of confrontation! Not that there is anything amiss with honest confrontation, as it can clear the air of underlying tensions, and pave the way for open-hearted friendship and love to flourish.Read more
Finally some air to breathe in relationships! After three weeks of micro analyzing every minute gesture and word that came out of anyone’s mouth and finding ourselves nitpicking on every syllable in spite of our best efforts – charm is finally back in town!Read more
Venus moves into her second home of Libra today. Leaving behind the earthy, practical, and particularizing vibe in Virgo, she expresses herself with the social graces in the sign of the scales. It’s a diplomatic, gracious placement for Venus, and we’re advised to follow suit when socializing and in our relationships.Read more
here is a powerful duality to Pisces energy that can easily come to the surface with this Full Moon – both towards ourselves and in our relationships! In fact it’s likely to have been around for the past couple of days.Read more
The key motivator for personal and collective action has just shifted from fun and dynamic open-hearted passion, to a more private and considerate approach. Service is at the core of Mars in Virgo, and that has a huge impact on relationships in that practical help is likely to be more welcome than grand gestures!Read more
Emotionally it’s a dreamy kind of day, whilst mentally it’s highly charged and erratic, making it potentially a little challenging in relationships!
There is also still a lot of ‘Me’ energy in the sky. Ideally this requires a conscious ongoing focus on our heart, so that decisions come from an expansive generous place of love, rather than an inflated ego.
Communication is in the spotlight today, and there may be some surprises in the pipeline, as well as some Promethean insights into communication dynamics with your loved ones.Read more
You become what you think about all day long.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Key relationship themes for this Full Moon include: self and other, individuality and co-operation, open-heartedness and intellectualization, friendship and romantic intimacy…You’ll recognize a continuation of many of the issues mentioned in my Tuesday Facebook blog, with the addition of the emotional intensity generated by a Full Moon.Read more
This weekend, the cosmic weather blows in two directions, and we’re pulled between the sociable vibe of the Gemini Moon and Venus in Leo on the one hand, and the more independence-oriented square that’s building between the Sun and Uranus on the other.Read more
The good news is that by later this evening we will finally be at the end of this first Eclipse season of the year! Still some intensity to come later in the week, but the feeling of being emotionally tightly compressed, will ease a little over the next few days!Read more
With a solar eclipse in the protective sign of Cancer and Mercury stationing to retrograde, this is likely to be a pretty intense week - although we may internalize the tension more than pushing forward with it, at least early in the week.Read more
The intensity is sky high today, together with a general sense of discomfort. The pressure to get to the truth of matters leaves us little room for light relief within ourselves and in our relationships. But what is the truth? Our version of situations and events or other people’s? What do we do about it, even if we get to the bottom of it – assuming we really want to know?Read more
The emphasis - I won’t say ‘focus’ - this weekend is on the Sun’s square to Neptune and Venus’ move from Taurus into Gemini. The first can incite us to make mountains out of molehills (especially with the Moon in particularizing Virgo), while the second encourages a Lite approach to things.Read more
Venus in this earthy sign is usually considered to be a wonderful placement for relationships, as this combination can easily ooze sensuality, comfort, affection and financial ease.
However, before we rush off to book a table at our favorite restaurant for a date night with our significant other, or favorite friends, best keep in mind that Saturday is likely to bring some unexpected surprises when Venus bumps into Uranus! Trying to second guess what might happen is impossible with these two, so the easiest option is to keep open and flexible to all possibilities!Read more
The spotlight in relationship for the next few weeks, moves from the more balanced equality of friendships, to the more traditional institution of ‘the family’. It’s a less cerebral approach to relationships than Gemini, so we are likely to do less talking and more hugging. Visiting loved ones in person is likely to be more appealing than connecting with them online, so don’t be surprised if social media goes a little quieter for a while!Read more
The royal baby arrived when the Sun is midway through its annual journey in the earthy sign of Taurus. It landed in the baby’s first house, describing the importance of discovering and developing a strong sense of self-value, as a core theme of his solar journey. His journey also involves being a powerful agent of transformation and manifestation, as he discovers his own sense of inner authority.Read more
In these last few hours of darkness, it’s the ideal time to plant some seeds for new beginnings. This New Moon is particularly powerful for intimate relationships, starting with our relationship with ourselves, and these are some of the key themes that are worth considering:Read more
Today in the sky, the asteroids are very active. Venus, the planet we associate with love, beauty, and relationship, meets with Vesta and joins that asteroid in opposing Pallas Athene. It’s sure to be a day when women are prominent in the news, although there is a genderless quality to the truth-telling that is implied by these meetings.Read more
