The Stars Today And More From The Mars In Virgo (Direct!) Trenches!

"venus transit 2012"

The other day I announced my Mars in Virgo (Direct!) call to arms, a challenge for anyone interested.

And with the incentive that I’d do a raffle once Mars is done with Virgo (one winner for a Mini-Reading). And the idea being that we check in with each other about our Mars in Virgo resolutions/intentions.

Well, already I have been slipping! So this morning I decided to write it down, which I hadn’t done yet. 4 simple points on a piece of paper and I’m going to hang it up over my desk. Nothing fancy. Or maybe I’ll just tape it to my desk. If I don’t write stuff down? I forget!

Truth is I didn’t abandon my entire plan but two things on the list I did indulge in yesterday. The key with Mars in Virgo is to be aware of what one is doing, the details… so as to prevent lapsing into old patterns. BUT then when one does lapse into old patterns, not to self-hate. Not to do the low side of TooMuchVirgo.

So that’s this morning’s suggestion: write it down if you haven’t already. And make it simple, streamline it. And with the Sun in Taurus, make it pretty if you want πŸ™‚ Taurus rules beauty!


The Stars Today: although the Sun has moved a degree past Mars (Taurus to Virgo) we are still in GrandTrineLand far as I’m concerned. Pluto is the slow moving planet and retrgorade at 9 Capricorn.

By the way, have you felt your Pluto parts or your Pluto house (natal or transiting) turn a bit? A bit of reflection, reflecting going on? Just curious πŸ˜‰

Moon is in Gemini and oh man Gemini is the star of the spring and summer, ya know? Not just because of lunations (hello Eclipse!) but because of the Venus transit that I was reading about yesterday. Sun conjunct Venus but with a kick, a historic kick, happening in early June. Know those degrees now, okay? 15 degrees of Gemini. What does it aspect in your chart? We’ll talk more about this as it approaches… or sooner!


Mercury in Aries, Venus in Gemini, Moon in Gemini as I was saying above, Sun in early Taurus, Mars in early Virgo… how does this sky suit your chart? Are you a fire/air person?


Yesterday I was talking to my sister on the phone. Was walking from the gym and got a wild hair to call her. Even with Mars direct she feels like she’s sloshing in the mud, can’t move forward.

I told her about Venus this summer in her sign. She’s got Mars and Venus conjunct in Gemini, 11th House and feels like a pretty important transit to me: not just about love and friendship but about hopes and goals and dreams and maybe she can finally begin to unstuck herself but not before Venus in Gemini gives her the runaround.

Now she has a fabulous fire/air chart with North Node in Cancer. Every time I talk to her, I get all Virgo (in my mind) in that I start silently evaluating whether she is doing her North Node on the phone call or falling into Saturn πŸ˜‰


A little reminder: Jupiter is STILL in Taurus but slowly winding down his time there. 18 degrees today. If you are a late degree Earth person (or water), you will really begin to experience this transit. It will feel good. Many of us, the Pluto in Virgo generation will have thisΒ Jupiter Pluto trine πŸ™‚ Some of you lucky peeps have this aspect in your natal: your Guardian Angel is married to your own personal God of the Underworld. With an aspect like this, dying feels good. You emerge as Jupiter time and time again. You give perspective to others.
