On what astrology can and cannot do.

ancient-zodiac

Astrology is a language and a tool and like any other tools it helps us get the job done but it doesn’t actually do the job for us. Efforts are required to understand yourself and change your life. Astrology can help us understand the various processes and cycles we are going through like periods of growth, consolidation, transformation, new beginnings and endings which are all part of life. It also gives us clues as to how one might react to life’s challenges. This awareness can help us make better decisions or even just cope with the processes.

Astrology will not give you a direct miracle cure. You have to brew that yourself. You have to be willing to put in the hours and reflect on your condition and go to the roots of why you react or do things a certain way. You have to lift the weights yourself and make the proper adjustment to bring about the changes that you want. It takes a lot of courage to take responsibilities for yourself. But no one and nothing else can do that for you.

(Those are my thoughts for now but that might change)

Moon in Taurus – Sun in Pisces: Sweet Indulgence

The Moon is in Taurus for the next few days with almost nothing in its way except for a sextile from the planets in Pisces and a trine from Pluto.

It’s a good time to take a breather and rest from the intensity of the last few weeks. A good opportunity to reset, take care of your body and relax your mind. Slow down your pace and indulge a little. A good meal, a nice massage and a walk in nature can work miracles.

The Moon in Taurus will sextile Mercury, the Sun and Neptune in the sign of Pisces later today. This is a nice imaginative aspect that can help us find concrete ways to realize our visions.

Self-indulgence is very likely under theses aspects and we could be tempted to completely surrender to our cravings. Since Venus (the planet of pleasures) is just about ready to turn retrograde it is best to find a balance approach.

To work the next few days to your advantage, make sure your indulgence are restorative. Release stress with bodywork and nourishing meals and make the pleasure last.

Venus & Saturn

“ To fear is to die a hundred deaths daily! A man fears everything in this world, great and small, the insect as well as the lion, mean words as well as illness…which is why he always attacks, hates the fairest and unwillingly listens to the wisest.”

-Jovan Ducic, “Leutar Mornings”

For the next few days, Venus conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. Maturity within our relationships will be required even though we might not see eye to eye.

This is about finding the silver lining or the sweet spot in winter amidst the cold facts of reality. Being mature is accepting that life is not always a fairy tale and being ok with that.artlimited_img174204.jpg
