Moon Signs & Lunar Transits

by Jenny Yates. The moon circles the earth quickly, passing through all the signs of the zodiac in 28 days. She is generous with her changes, offering a new zodiacal perspective every 2+ days. The moon is symbolically connected with emotions, water, and the mother. Her changes are reflected deep within us in the ways we nurture ourselves and others.

Neptune Transits

Transiting Neptune infrequently aspects itself in the course of a life time, but such "life-cycles" are usually experienced by most people around the same age. All of these phases can be very subtle, giving us the impression that nothing is really going on -- but that's typical for Neptune.

Never Date A...

Someone asked me why all "New Age" astrology is so positive. Isn't there anybody out there who will focus on the negative qualities of the signs? Each of the signs certainly does have a distinctly negative expression. In fact, it seems we've all seen these traits exhibited by someone we've dated...

Planetary Meditations

As we advance in our studies of astrology, we become centered and prepared to meet whatever comes. Astrology teaches us to awaken through every experience, meeting each moment with courage...

Pluto - Our Inner Darkness

Connecting astrology and mythology, Pluto represents the underworld of the unconscious. It is an extremely powerful force which has rulership over the instinctive forces that lie buried deep in the unknown part of ourselves.

Through a Psychic's Eyes

by Sylvia Browne. Your Sun sign (where the sun was positioned at birth) is characteristic of what you are "made of." The Sun sign presents a view of your inner self, that which you feel is you, your fundamental outlook on life.

Psychological vs. Predictive Astrology

Does the real value of astrology reside in its insights into human behavior or in forecasting the future? As an astrologer who is also a psychotherapist, I am strongly in favor of "insights into human behavior?. The caveat, however, is that predictive astrology can be utilized in the service of psychological insight and spiritual growth.

Mercury Retrograde Cycle Alert

A look at transits, retrogrades, and other aspects that affect our lives. When Mercury moves away from Earth in its orbit around the Sun, it is said to be moving in direct motion. When Mercury approaches earth, it appears to move backwards...

Roots of Astrology

I still clearly recall an experience that might be described as my first encounter with astrology. I was in our small vegetable garden, and I had stopped for a moment to gaze up into a particularly beautiful and clear moonless sky.

Saturn: Trainer for Excellence

Whatever challenges Saturn brings are tailor-made to help us fulfill our highest potential. Saturn's not against us, it's for us! If we're willing to work with our Saturn, it ultimately reveals some of our greatest strengths and gifts as well as the skills necessary to satisfy our highest destinies.

Moon Affects Dependency Issues

lunar behavior

by Donna Cunningham.

The Moon, in the astrological chart, can help us understand how we deal with our emotions. It show how comfortable we are with dependency, how we take care of others, gratify their needs, and how we accept those same needs in ourselves. Can we tolerate feeling dependent and actively go out to get those needs met?

Cycles of The Moon

The Cycles Of The Moon

by John Townley.

The moon's cycle can be an important one in planning your work schedule -- or your schedule for finding work. The sun also exerts a cyclic pull on us. The sun's cycle serves very much as an overall personal energy and health cycle and often determines what season of the year you will do best in.

Using Astrology Moon Signs For Business

The Moon Signs In Astrology & Business

Have you noticed that on some days many of your clients or customers seem to have certain things in common. For example, on some days people may only want to window shop, while on other days every customer or client who walks through the doors has a complaint. They are responding to the Moon's...

The Lunar Cycles: Influenced by the Moon

The Lunar Cycles

by Daniel Pharr.

The 'dark side' of our being is represented by the Moon. This is our invisible side, which is normally active during the night, when the conscious mind is at rest. The lunar-self is composed of the superconscious and subconscious minds.

Is Astrology Divination or Science?

Is Astrology Divination or Science?Divination is a word that is often loosely used to mean a type of intuition. The highest processes of what we do in any art or science involve this wonderful intuitive capacity. Put that way, we could all agree, "Fine, astrology is divination, but so what?" My purpose here today is to raise the "so what?"

Are You In Love With?

Are You In Love With...

by Celeste B. Longacre. Ah, love! Who among us hasn't dreamed of the real thing; soul mates together for all time? Happiness and joy with ease for eternity? Some day, somewhere, my Prince (or Princess) will come... surely?

Aquarius Rising Sign - Aquarius Ascendant

Aquarius Rising Sign - Aquarius AscendantThe inherent need for independence, and the Aquarius flair and originality, will be present but may not be immediately apparent. As far as general impressions are concerned, the qualities that make the Sun-sign Aquarian "different" and individual may not strike those who only know people with Aquarius rising, and only know them somewhat superficially.

Aquarius Sun Sign

Aquarius Sun Sign - Aquarius CharacteristicsAquarius is the individualist of the Zodiac. Show two people with this sign prominent in their birth-charts a list of characteristics of the sign, and the only thing they will agree on is the fact that they share none of them. This sign bestows a great need for independence, which very often emerges in the building of a rather special and somewhat different lifestyle.

Aries Sun Sign

sun sign ariesAries is known as the pioneer of the Zodiac, and Ariens like to be first. Those who have this as their Sun-sign are generally uncomplicated in their attitude to life. They plan straightforwardly, and convince the rest of us that there are no complications in what they suggest.

Cancer Rising Sign - Cancer Ascendant

Cancer Rising Sign - Cancer AscendantThe powerful Cancer characteristics will be primarily directed towards the partner and family, and apart from the strong self-defensive system, may well not be at all obvious to those who come into contact with the individual on a day-today or casual basis

Cancer Sun Sign

Cancer Sun Sign - Cancer CharacteristicsChallenge a Cancerian and at once you will see his or her natural self-defensive system come into play. The need to protect themselves and their loved ones is an extremely basic instinct with people of this Sun sign. Used positively it is marvelously helpful, but sometimes it can result in their becoming too easily annoyed, so that a slight "huffiness" is displayed at the mildest opposition.

Capricorn Sun Sign

Capricorn Sun Sign - Capricorn CharacteristicsCapricorn is the sign of the Goat. Here we have someone who is sure-footed and negotiates every obstacle with care but with a lively step. Only getting to the top will do, and a great deal of determination will be present in the character to help Capricorns every step of the way.

Gemini Rising Sign - Gemini Ascendant

Gemini Rising Sign - Gemini AscendantSomeone with Gemini rising will find that the Geminian characteristics will marry in an interesting way with their Sun-sign characteristics. Should you, for instance, have Gemini rising but a "strong silent" Sun-sign such as Scorpio, there will be a very lively, talkative, perhaps adventurous person

Gemini Sun Sign

Gemini Sun Sign - Gemini CharacteristicsPerhaps the most dominant Geminian characteristic is versatility. Gemini will never only be involved in one specialist area of one subject and will never get stuck in a rut. If, of necessity, he or she is forced into that position, they will suffer considerably not only from boredom something which they come near to fearing but more deeply psychologically, too.

Leo Rising Sign - Leo Ascendant

Leo Rising Sign - Leo AscendantThe well-known British astrologer Margaret Hone (who had Leo rising) used to say that the only thing to do when Leo rises is to keep it down. There does seem to be quite an element of truth in this statement, for Leo rising can, at times, make the individual autocratic a big fish in a small pond

Leo Sun Sign

Leo Sun Sign - Leo CharacteristicsLeo, the lion, the king of the jungle, must of necessity have his or her own individual kingdom whether it is large or small. The ability of people with this Sun-sign to organize their own lives and the lives of others is paramount, as is their ability to lead. There is no doubt about it, a really flourishing Leo will make the most of this potential, sometimes stretching ability too far.

Libra Rising Sign - Libra Ascendant

Libra Rising Sign - Libra AscendantThe need for a good, rewarding, and permanent relationship is paramount when Libra rises, and achieving this becomes an important part of the Libran's psychological motivation. But the need to express affection in an outward and immediate way is less in evidence.

Libra Sun Sign

Libra Sun Sign - Libra CharacteristicsPerhaps more than with any of the other signs of the Zodiac, the symbol for this sign the balance sums up very accurately the basic motivation and needs of the individual who has it emphasized in his or her birth-chart. Balance and harmony are crucial if Libra is going to function at all well, and it is the vital factor if they are going to live a fulfilled and satisfying life.

Pisces Rising Sign - Pisces Ascendant

Pisces Rising Sign - Pisces AscendantWhen Pisces rises, there seems to be no question that the characteristics of the sign will work at the deepest level of the personality. Here, perhaps more than in any other case, the Sun-sign will dominate, but underlying that particular set of characteristics will be the sensitivity and emotion

Pisces Sun Sign

Pisces Sun Sign - Pisces CharacteristicsPisces is the poet of the Zodiac. With signs of the Water element, emotion is plentifully expressed at a moment's notice: the dilating pupils of the Piscean eyes will at once tell us when the individual is moved.

Sagittarius Rising Sign - Sagittarius Ascendant

Sagittarius Rising Sign - Sagittarius  AscendantMany Sagittarian qualities complement and enhance the characteristics of the individual's Sun-sign. They will, for instance, counter the somewhat heavier, practical side of the Earth signs, and give a longer-lasting enthusiasm and strength of will to those who have an Air Sun-sign.

Sagittarius Sun Sign

Sagittarius Sun Sign - Sagittarius CharacteristicsChallenge, and a need to feel free to express themselves in their own individual way, are the two most important requisites for those who have this sign emphasized in their birth-charts. They cannot function satisfactorily without either.

Scorpio Sun Sign

Scorpio Sun Sign - Scorpio CharacteristicsThis, the eighth sign of the Zodiac, is the strongest, offering the greatest resources of both emotional and physical energy. Those born with Scorpio prominently placed in their birth chart must find ways of using these resources positively and in a fulfilling way. This is best achieved by expression in a career.

Moon In Taurus: Taurus as a Moon Sign

Moon In Taurus: Taurus as Moon SignWhen the Moon is in Taurus, its influence is of even greater strength and importance than in most other cases. Immediate reactions to situations will be slow, but once an opinion is formed the individual will speak up with determination and authority

Taurus Rising Sign - Taurus Ascendant

Taurus Rising Sign - Taurus AscendantAlthough the individual with Taurus rising may not give the impression that he or she needs to feel more than usually secure, the underlying need will be very much present, and, as is the case with Sun-sign Taureans, will relate to both financial and emotional security.

Taurus Sun Sign

Taurus Sun Sign - Taurus CharacteristicsTaurus, to function properly, need to live their lives in the knowledge that they have the security of a regular income and a stable emotional relationship. When this is achieved they are in the right position to achieve a great deal. Their most outstanding virtue is patience, they will plod very steadily onwards, and soon learn that short cuts are usually disastrous for them.

Virgo Rising Sign - Virgo Ascendant

Virgo Rising Sign - Virgo AscendantThe Mercurial need to communicate will be particularly important to people with Virgo rising, and although because of their Sun-sign they may not be especially talkative, once a good relationship has been established a pleasant liveliness will blossom.

Virgo Sun Sign

Virgo Sun Sign - Virgo CharacteristicsOf all 12 signs, Virgo is the busiest. Those who have it as their Sun- or Rising-sign will surround themselves with a great many tasks, so that their day is full of activity. It is very difficult indeed for them to relax totally putting their feet up and doing nothing has no great appeal, so the best way for them to cut out is to move from work which is intellectually demanding to something that makes greater demands on their physical energy.

Are You In Love with an Aquarius?

Are You In Love with an Cancer?

Love with an Cancer - Cancer Compatibility and Cancer TraitsIf you are in love with a Cancer man or woman, give him or her your understanding.

Are You In Love with a Capricorn?

Love with a Capricorn - Capricorn Compatibility and Capricorn TraitsIf you are in love with a Capricorn man or woman, give him or her encouragement and support.

Are You In Love with a Gemini?

Love with a Gemini - Gemini Compatibility and Gemini TraitsIf you are in love with a Gemini man or woman, give him or her elusivity and a lot of space alone.

Are You In Love with a Leo?

Love with a Leo - Leo Compatibility and Leo TraitsIf you are in love with a Leo man or woman, the most important thing you can give him or her is your attention.

Are You In Love with a Libra?

Are You In Love with a Sagittarius?

Love with a Sagittarius - Sagittarius Compatibility and Sagittarius TraitsIf you are in love with a Sagittarius man or woman, give him or her freedom and honesty. This is one honey who will resist any and all efforts to be pinned down too definitively and you would do best to understand this from the start. He(she) needs plenty of rope.

Are You In Love with a Scorpio?

Love with a Scorpio - Scorpio Compatibility and Scorpio TraitsIf you are in love with a Scorpio man or woman, give him or her your full attention and devotion. Sharp as a tack, this person definitely notices everything. You will be able to keep no secrets here; this individual is an expert at ferreting them out.

Are You In Love with a Taurus?

Love with a Taurus - Taurus Compatibility and Taurus Traits

If you are in love with a Taurus man or woman, understand that this person is a one-woman man or a one-man woman (unless Gemini predominates elsewhere in the natal chart). Primarily interested in security, this being is looking to settle down

Are You In Love with a Virgo?

Love with a Virgo - Virgo Compatibility and Virgo TraitsIf you love a Virgo, give him or her attention to detail. Some -- but not all -- Virgos are neatniks and cannot stand living in a mess. Others need for you to acknowledge their ideas or accomplishments
