Venus in Solar Return 12th House 

Published December 30, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Today I tweeted I feel like I’m having a Neptune/Venus transit but I’m not. When Neptune transits Venus in hard aspect (conjunction, square and opposition) we can lose touch with reality, we lose our self in love, we blindly believe in things; in people. We seek transcendental connections and we very well may believe we have met our soulmate.

As I was driving to work I realized I have Venus in my Solar Return 12th house this is similar to a Venus/Neptune transit.

When I first saw this I thought WOW am I going to have an affair this year? What secret relationship am I going to engage in? When people come to me for readings and they have this aspect (the majority of my clients are married) it is with 90% certainty they are having an affair.
I’m halfway through my Solar Return and let me just say this is the year of not seeing men clearly. It would take a lot for me to fall head over heels in love. Romanticism is my thing but delusion isn’t.
The solar Return 12th house (home to secrets and self-undoing) has Venus (planet of love) on my natal 6th house (work) perhaps I met a men at work that is the cause of my own self undoing. Perhaps I met a man at work I didn’t see clearly. Sometimes astrology is that literal
I love it when it is.

I see the soul of you

I know the whole of you

That’s the kind of day dreamy feelings that enveloped me
He is a player I was told and I laughed no he isn’t. It’s still hard to believe that he is. I take full ownership of this situation after all I never asked. I never asked if he had a harem of women. I never asked anything. That’s Neptune you don’t ask you just believe that you already know.
He is Neptunian in every sense of the word.
Disappointment: That’s the hallmark of Neptune in relationships; the dream never meets reality.
Just wanted to caution those of you with Neptune in the 12th of your Solar Return it’s the secret lover, the love that causes your own self-undoing, the lover you see through rose colored glasses, the Pisces lover, the alcoholic lover, the married lover, the fantasy lover that can’t breathe a breath in the reality of your life lover.

Saturn the Buzz Kill to Jupiter

Published December 17, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I am tired, drained really I do not have much energy and I feel the energy I do have is spent doing what I have to do, I don’t really have any excess to do the things I want to do. I have the sun in the 5th house my identity, my journey if you will is centered around love and creating responsibilities can exhaust me. It is very important that you tend to your natal sun, that you nourish it by the house that it is placed in. You need to remember to feed it. Energetically I always run very high I have Sun square Moon and a Cardinal T square in my Chart Cardinal signs are doers. My mom said she was going to buy me a makeup bag that read “I am busy” because I always am. I laugh at people that have the time to correct my grammatical errors on twitter, I am pretty sure they aren’t doing all that I do in a day. Running, going, writing, working, giving readings, taken a class, on and on and on until this week I hit a wall.

The culprit; Saturn is opposite my Jupiter via transit

Saturn Rules

  • Responsibility
  • Time
  • Work
  • Boundaries
  • Lessons
  • Practicality Zzzzzzz

According to Jeanne Avery in Astrological Aspects Your Inner Dialogs

Saturn “describes shoulds, musts, and oughts”

“Saturn is the testing ground of life and indicates the greatest karmic lesson to be learned”

I don’t do Saturn very well.

I believe if you look to the natal chart you will see how hard a transit for you will be. Not all astrologers believe this; I think if you are heavy say Plutonian Pluto transits will be easier for you because you are familiar with that energy. I have Pluto square my Sun, opposite my moon exact, trine Jupiter, sextile Saturn, Neptune & midheaven and trine my ascendant. Pluto is woven into me, death and rebirth it all comes natural. I just finished a Pluto opposite Sun square moon transit and it was pretty much all gravy.

But Saturn transits god you can find me laying in bed weeping. I do have Saturn natal in a grand fire trine which helps me out with work and money but it is square my Mars and Uranus. “You had me at fuck the system” has been the motto since birth.

Mars energy in a square to Saturn I will always be at war (mars) with authority (Saturn)

Uranus square Saturn indicates I rebel (Uranus) against the status quo (Saturn)

I am just not very good with rules and structure I prefer to be more free floating.

Saturn is now opposing my natal Jupiter in the 4th house it will be exact on New Year’s Eve Oh the joy

Jupiter Represents

  • Expansion
  • Optimism
  • Good Luck
  • Joy

“The Jupitarian quality is a marvelous combination of practicality and enthusiasm. The reverse quality is disappointment. If the aim is too high and the goals are missed the individual can be paralyzed by the let down” –Jeanne Avery

You want to look where Jupiter and Sagittarius are placed in your natal chart to see where you feel lucky or optimistic. I have Sagittarius on my Midheaven, I think this gives me a hope  that things will work out and when they don’t I would say I am greatly disappointed. I usually work from an inner knowing which I think is due to my Jupiter in the 4th house. The 4th house is the root of the chart and reflects what we carry deep within us among other things. So I have never been a 5 year planner I am a go with the flow listen to my own guidance sort of person.

I intuit mostly everything I do. I announced the other day at work I was booking a trip to Machu Piccchu and my colleague said Oh Peru…I had no idea where it even was! I sort of get called to do things

I have written before that I do not feel Jupiter brings us lotto wins or grand romances I think it infuses the planet or house with an optimism and belief that everything will be ok and usually it is until it isn’t.

And that brings me to Saturn opposite Jupiter

Saturn squashes the belief, the optimism, the joy that Jupiter holds. It tests (Saturn always tests) your beliefs, your truths, your inner workings (if Jupiter is in the 4th house).

Robert Hand writes in his book Planets in Aspect about Saturn opposite Jupiter transit

“During this time your opportunities for growth and expansion are limited”.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO F&%ING TIRED TO DO ANYTHING

“You often feel as if your personal freedom is unduly limited by others”.

“This transit is a useful if not always pleasant encounter with reality”

Saturn squelches the joy and optimism of Jupiter don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.

For those of you that have this natal oppositions can work like a swinging door so you can be optimistic, joyful, overly eager and then fall victim to Saturn the disappointment, melancholy, and depression can kick in. Robert Plletier writes in “Planets in Aspect” those that have this natal

“You fluctuate between knowing what you are worth to having doubts about your value”

I know there are worse transits, (they will happen for me in 2018 when Saturn enters Capricorn, I seriously just finished recovering from Saturn in Libra) that’s the beauty that comes with age when you are young you think this will never end, when you are older and know astrology you can simply open your ephemeris and say I may have to drag my uninspired tired ass all the way through December but as of January 1st this transit is over and I can go back to being my high energy manic self perhaps with a few lessons in the bag.

A Neptune Affair; you are the dream and I am the dreamer

Published October 22, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

In another life he could have been mine I suppose all of his planets fall in my 7th house and 3 of mine fall in his. Perhaps that is why I had to know him. The 7th house is what you seek in a mate and a part of me felt like wow there you are.  This vague I am so comfortable to be here with you.

7th-house-overlays

I see him through this film this kaleidoscope of colors. I think he is beautiful

I have had this song on repeat for a minute

strange-and-beautiful

 

I was reading a book that said our combined energies is a “gossamer fabric” very beautiful and delicate, light and ethereal.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, addictions, escapism; it rules what you don’t see. Neptune is associated with fantasies and all things magical.  Neptune eludes, deludes and is evasive. Now you see him now you don’t. My Tarot Reader who knows nothing in particular about my situation pulled out the Magician card a few weeks ago and told me “don’t let him dazzle you with bullshit”. Neptune themed relationships often involve someone with addiction issues, someone looking to be saved and most definitely someone looking to escape.

Sometimes I think Neptune relationships have a difficult time surviving or even getting off the ground in this cold Saturn ruled world where buying homes and laying down foundations take precedence over dreams and connections on a soul level.  Neptune contacts after all are otherworldly and not of this plane.  The keynotes are telepathy and dreaming of one another. They are marked by an evasive you just can’t put your finger on them quality.

I have Neptune conjunct my Midheaven, my Neptune is a part of my grand fire trine with moon and Saturn. To much reality erodes me, I much prefer the dream the smugness of it all; the gossamer fabric.

Perhaps for someone more cerebral this would never do.

I feel him on the perimeter of me, so close but yet so far. The other day I yelled why are you hiding from me?! And laughed and thought what a Neptunian thing to say, hiding in plain sight. He appears and disappears like a rabbit in a hat. I told him I hope I haunt him forever; I have no doubt I will. One night I will seep into his subconscious while he is on his 7th dream.

 
My Neptune squares his Moon, Mercury and Mars. His Neptune opposes my Venus and Mars.

A lot of talk goes on about who is deceiving who in these connections, perhaps it is neither. Maybe we just deceive ourselves.

I am not sure how he experiences me, he is very clear if not heavy handed in speech and I wonder with my Neptune squaring his Mercury do I bring him some sort of mental confusion. This aspect indicates that the Neptune person values the intellectual accomplishments of the Mercury person but I also feel the Neptune person (moi) is here to teach the Mercury person something about spirituality.  A lesson I am going to presume the mercury person doesn’t want to learn  because these two planets meet by square. A square is an obstacle, it shows tension.

With the opposition it has a see-saw effect. A lot of projection takes place with oppositions in synastry. His Neptune opposes my Venus and Mars and I see him as this magnificent. My rational mind reminds me that isn’t who he is that is merely my perception but no matter I see him through that sparkling veneer. It can also be that the Neptune person project his or her ideals onto Venus, I dated someone for a year and we had this aspect. 100 years later he will say he never loved anyone the way he loved me.

These relationships or connections can be marked by forgiveness and compassion so even if something goes wrong an element of –it’s ok- will permeate.

Neptune relationships are supposed to be the most heart breaking; the dream doesn’t meet the reality. That’s what is written, it offers the promise of paradise that is never quite delivered.

Time has taught me to let things be as they are. I do believe what’s meant for you flows to you effortlessly and lets hope what’s meant for me strolls in on a pink puffy cloud.

Progressed Sun Square Mars Transcending My Ego come hell or high water

Published September 3, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I have several hard core transits right now Pluto is opposite my sun and squaring my moon and Uranus is exactly squaring my mercury. I am familiar with the Pluto energy I have Pluto on everything natal. Not all astrologers believe this, but I think when energy is familiar to you, you will not feel the transit as much because it is already integrated into your psyche/life and what have you.

What’s doing me in is this progressed sun square natal mars:

Textbook says you will have trouble with young men (this can sometimes be a violent aspect)

If you are not familiar with progressions and how to read them click below

https://starsmoonandsun.com/2012/03/04/a-breif-introduction-into-progressions/

 

The Sun and Mars both represent men, the men in your life. What the astrology textbook doesn’t tell you is that man will be like an alien life form from outer space.

This is Karmic his Saturn opposes my Venus and my Saturn squares his moon At his worst he may have Narcissistic Personality Disorder at the very least he doesn’t know how to love a woman properly but somehow I am stuck with him. This is a Saturn in synastry thing it binds for better or worse that is why it is often preferred to see in the charts of people that marry they will be less inclined to skip out. However I am not dating this man nor am I marrying him but he has been sent here from outer space to drive me crazy.

I confess I know I will be a better woman for it, but it hurts to grow, to stretch and quite frankly I was fine the way I was before, before he came into the picture.

Natal Mars the planet of young men (he is 10 years my junior) and aggression is squaring my progressed sun. The sun is your ego your identity and lately I have been working overtime on transcending my self.

I have my natal sun in the 5th house so I probably have an over sized ego. This is the house of my identity, my hobbies, my children my my my my my My mother once told me after someone broke up with me “you don’t really care its just your ego. Perhaps she was right.

I do care about him for whatever reason (residual past life crap) but yet I cannot date someone that is an alien. We don’t speak the same language we don’t see things the same way. But I can’t just toss him to the side ( I am also having a progressed Venus conjunct Sun but more on that later) I have to deal with him in some capacity socially I cannot escape him and this forces me to confront parts of myself I would rather not. He doesn’t behave in a normal fashion and for a second his behavior was extremely unsettling and upsetting to me I was angry at first  and on some days I am still angry my ego yells who are you to do this to me? How dare you promise me the sun, moon and stars and not deliver! Why would you do this to me? How dare he do this to me?  Meanwhile he behaves this way with all women. It’s a strange thing to watch someone hold themselves apart from the very things they say they desire. He has an inability to love. He lacks the capacity to have a normal relationship. He is like an extraterrestrial.  He has all these defense mechanisms up they are impossible to get beyond. I rarely ever see him exude any real sense of joy. People can only give what they have right?  I believe in astrology, introspection, and the law of attraction so I had to face some things about myself knowing: if you attracted it to you it is active with in you. So being with him forced me to examine my own levels of narcissism (clearly not pathological) and defense mechanisms .  Him and I both have Saturn in the 7th house which is known to put up barriers between you and other people. You can not take rejection so this placement will leave you before you can abandon them. We both also have self reliant moons (mine in Aries and his in the 1st house) leaning on others or being receptive to what others need in relationships probably aren’t areas we are naturally gifted. Remember his Saturn opposes my Venus so he is here to teach (Saturn) me something about love (Venus). But he is also teaching me about transcending my ego, learning to not allow others issues to become our issues that people are only operating from their own level of consciousness.

I tweeted once

“people only treat you and love you from their own level of consciousness so you have to let it all go its not personal”

I know that on mental level, it resonates with me mentally but getting the rest of me up to speed with that is another story.

And here I go again on a mission to transcend my ego.

This man will tell me I am beautiful his dream and his behavior is totally ET or maybe something out of that old Sigourney Weaver movie.

So while on one hand I may be upset I tell myself: none of this has anything to do with me. I try to treat him with love, kindness I would even go out on a limb and say I have been nicer to him than I have been to any man in my entire life (and let me tell you that shit burns my ass talk about Ego issues)

I am very reactionary and he knows this so a lot of times in typical Mars fashion he will light a fire under my ass and watch me scream at him and probably delight in it. But every time I am trying to be less and less hostile and channel my inner Zen,  I make focus wheels about him (watch my video) Make Focus Wheels to raise Vibration  I  pray on it and I have a chat with my ego I say self these are his issues stop reacting it has nothing to do with you.When people treat us a certain way it reflects what is at war inside of them and when we allow people to treat us a certain way it reflects what is at war inside of us. People that frustrate and upset us can be our greatest spiritual teachers if we would only allow them. When we meet someone and react in sorrow or anger they are showing us the aspects within ourselves that require healing. Please take the time and ask yourself what can I learn here? What are they here to teach me?

I know from meeting this man a strong desire to have a normal,  healthy and honest relationship was born from the ashes of the dreams this man sold me.

Relationships and vibrationRelationships are our mirror quote
Relationships are reflections Abraham Hicks

Now you would think it would be enough to transcend my ego but I am also having a progressed Venus conjunct natal Sun aspect. These are both exact , this is a big one they say if you have never known love before this will be it, this is “the one” progression. I can’t speak on that it will last another year I will be sure to let you know, but it isn’t enough for me to transcend my damn ego I also have to have compassion for him LOL. Sun conjunct Venus is the aspect of love.  And while a normal man that isn’t from outer space isn’t anywhere in site I wonder if perhaps this progression is teaching me compassion so every day I meditate I literally do a love and kindness meditation and send him some positive vibes. I have started to wonder how loving are we as human beings if we can only love people when they are acting lovable?  And if we want love to manifest in our own life, shouldn’t we extend our loving and compassionate nature towards those that act unlovable. After all people only love others about as deeply as they love themselves. Happy and healthy people, conscious people do not run around hurting the people that care about them. Isn’t it the people that are hurting the most the ones most in need of love? I try my hardest to show him love when I see him I hug him and treat him kindly because I recognize hurt people hurt people and wounded dogs bite.

This isn’t to say we should remain in relationships with people that hurt us, but hating them will never bring us closer to the great love we desire.  Wasn’t it Martin Luther King that said “Hate cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that”?

You can wish people love and healing from a far. I would never suggest you stay in a relationship that is unhealthy or abusive. If you think you are dealing with someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder please visit my YouTube channel I have received lots of positive feedback from my videos on Narcissists. Narcissistic Personality Disorder

A lovely person on twitter suggested I read some books by Marianne Williamson that mention narcissism. I particularly found the book “A Return to Love” one of the best books I have ever read and know I will read it again and again.

Return to love

This progressed Venus conjunct natal Sun also falls in my 5th house of self so I have really began focusing on self love. I find it ironic that someone that seems to have the inability to love can teach another lessons on self love and compassion. I started doing self love Sundays on twitter I think it is important to love yourself openly and actively. Love is a verb right that’s what they said in my positive psychology class so if you want love to manifest in your life start by loving yourself only then can we extend that love outwardly. I also think there was a huge lesson or learning experience here that you have to love yourself enough to not allow other peoples behavior to upset you. Your ego says How could you do this to me but your soul says I recognize hurt people hurt people.

Last Night I was in a New Woman’s Circle and at the end of class everyone selected a different card. I received the harmony card. This to me was a divine message to A. Continue to extend Kindness and B. Continue to seek joy no matter what others are doing.

Jupiter enters Libra September 10th 2016

Published August 4, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Jupiter will enter Libra on September 10th 2016 and will stay in the cardinal air sign until October 10, 2017. Jupiter stays in a sign for approximately a year and will transit the entire birth chart in 12 years. Jupiter transits are quick and not life changing. I have received some flak for saying that I am not fond of Jupiter transits. I feel more than anything they infuse the house they are in over a 12 month period with optimism but if anyone is looking for quick lotto gains and Princesses Diana weddings I don’t believe Jupiter brings us this despite what we are sometimes led to believe.

In my opinion the most significant Jupiter transits are when Jupiter crosses the ascendant and into the first house I have seen some people abandon their old life in search of new. Just recently someone I know moved after 20+ years at the same residence and another that changed jobs after 15 years in the same establishment. Jupiter transits to the 1st house encourages people to take chances and leaps of faith. I love that!

I’m also fond of your Jupiter return I believe this brings blessings or gifts to the house that holds the natal placement of Jupiter. This occurs approximately every 12 years so ages 23, 36, 48 etc. A planetary return is when a planet returns to the place it was at the time of your birth. For example the Solar Return happens once a year on your birthday when the sun returns to the place it was at the time of your birth, a Saturn Return happens twice at the age of 28-31 apprx and 56-60, Uranus makes one return if you are lucky enough to live to 84 but Jupiter due to the quick rate at which it moves will return to your natal Jupiter every 12 years. I find those years to be particularly significant

Jupiter Rules:

  • Optimism
  • Prosperity
  • Freedom
  • Expansion
  • Morals
  • Wisdom
  • Trust
  • Goodwill

When Jupiter transits a house more than anything we believe in the possibilities, our approach is an inclination that things will work out. We believe and while IMO that isn’t the transformative energy I much prefer, it can certainly lighten the load.

Libra is the sign that corresponds to

  • Beauty
  • Partnership
  • Equality
  • Balance
  • Fairness
  • Harmony
  • Diplomacy

Libra Rules the 7th house in astrology home to

  • Law Suits
  • Open Enemies
  • Marriages and Divorces
  • Negotiations
  • Contracts
  • Business Partnerships

 

(Of course Libra also has the shadowy side as well –indecisive, superficial, in need of partnership to the point they often cannot function alone)

 

I find the nature of Jupiter corresponds well with the philosophies of Libra. In Author Molly Halls book (cover featured below) she describes Libra as a sign “that’s passion for justice makes Libra a sign that excels in diplomacy, law, politics, mediation and social advocacy”. She goes on to describe the planet Jupiter as “Jupiter rules all areas in which an over reaching meaning is sought; these include religion, publishing, philosophy and the legal profession”. I would go so far as to say that I expect to see Jupiter’s visit to Libra to either enhance our current partnerships both personal and professional or  free us from them. Remember Jupiter rules expansion and freedom and often you will find during a Jupiter transit you are let go of or fired from a job you really didn’t like or you find the courage to leave an unfulfilling relationship (Libra being the sign of partnership). Sometimes things happen that seem awful at the time but really serve to expand (Jupiter) our consciousness and quality of life really.

molly hall book

I am still hopeful to see some law enforcement reform with Saturn Lord of Karma visiting Sagittarius and now perhaps getting a boost from Jupiter in Libra. Both Sag and Libra correspond to legalities both being somewhat idealist signs I think perhaps they can bring some much needed change in Police Departments across the country (fingers crossed). More than anything I expect Jupiter in Libra to alter the way we as a whole relate to one another. I would expect to see a boost in our partnerships. If you are a Libra rising, Sun or moon do watch your diet this is the transit of gaining weight. After all Jupiter expands whatever it touches and sometimes that is our waistline; on the Ascendant that is how you appear and the moon rules your eating habits. I know we tend to think of Jupiter as a beneficial transit but you do want to watch your debts (8th house) and expenditures (2nd house) when Jupiter transits the money houses as already mentioned Jupiter expands whatever it touches and that isn’t necessarily always a good thing.

The Tarot Card associated with Jupiter in Libra is 4 of swords sometimes knows as Truce. If you think about the number 4 it is all about balance and that is what Libra seeks most, equality. Four is a stable number 4 legs to a table, a square has 4 sides, we have 4 cardinal points, east, west, north and south, 4 seasons, 4 phases of the moon etc. Swords are related to air and intellect Libra is an air sign, concerned with peace, diplomacy and like all air signs: ideas. The 4 of swords is about taking a time out before the fight which is indicated in the 5 of swords, it seeks to find a peaceful resolution. I recall someone once describing Libra as an “Iron fist in a velvet glove”. So perhaps this tarot card is the gathering of strength, the rest before the action, as you can see 3 swords are above the sleeping man and one is just below him, easy to grasp in a moment’s notice. While Libra may seem passive one must not forget they are a cardinal sign like Aries, Cancer and Capricorn so they do direct their energy outward. I also believe this card relates to Jupiter in the sense that Jupiter is sometimes the bragger yes someone that talks excessively (Jupiter in the 3rd house or Jupiter on Mercury) but sometimes Jupiter is an inner knowing an inner expansion and inner peace and that is reflected in this card.

I hope Jupiter’s visit to Libra brings you the improved relationships you seek. If nothing else maybe we will be inclined to see the very best in others xoxo

Rising Sign What you see is not always what you get

Published March 28, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

 

The rising sign is the front door to the natal chart. It is the ruler of the 1st house it is what people get when they don’t really know you.  It’s a façade, window dressing in a way. It’s the outer layer it’s the shell it’s the mask that protects the sun sign. Not everyone is worthy of your sun, maybe you are not comfortable expressing your sun to everyone. My Gemini colleague always tells me: when you go on dates don’t send your representative. That’s the rising sign, your representative; the sun is who you are.

In the book “The Rising Sign Your Astrological Mask” Jeanne Avery writes

“The Ascendant is interpreted as indicative of the individuals personality as well as his appearance . It also indicates the circumstances of childhood”.

“it is the rising sign that indicates an individual’s particular outlook on life”

“The ascendant can act like a wall or a façade that an individual erects around himself”

“It describes the part of the personality that is most easily expressed”

“It is how a person allows others to see him”

I have known this man for years and recently began dating him. And as we grew closer I thought wow he is not who I thought he was or rather he is different then who I thought he was. I was talking about him to someone and she asked: what do you like about him and I spoke about how polite he is, I am not polite so the energy can be intriguing to me. And he pulls out my chair and opens my door and he can be very chivalrous and strong. He hardly curses, he takes charge in a way …I never have to plan a thing with him. She said oh you like all his Taurus traits. He has Taurus on the rise with a Gemini Sun.

For years I got his Taurus Ascendant, charming I would say nice. He can wear a paper bag and look good. Clothes just fall beautifully on Taurus rising, something about him seems refined and elegant. (Venus traits though more pronounced in Libra)

Then in walked that Gemini Sun

That’s how it works once he became comfortable with me I got to see more of his natural self. He is funny and quick witted, his mind is vibrant. All those Gemini traits…but you know they can be hard to pin down energetically they aren’t like home body loving Taurus.

This isn’t to say he isn’t still chivalrous, he is and god knows in typical Taurus fashion he seems immovable and can be concerned with appearances. Venus ruled risings can be very much, “but what will the neighbors think”. He has commented on how I don’t care what anyone thinks.

Nope sure don’t. I have Aquarius rising.

I am sure at first he experienced me as aloof, indifferent, laid back

Oh how I laugh

My Aquarius rising masks my cancer sun

My cancer Sun is needy and in need of 24/7/365 constant admiration

Lets be honest Gemini isn’t about that life and Cancer isn’t about Gemini’s need for exploration or flirting or child like tendencies

These are 2 radically different Sun Sign/Rising Sign match ups.

This is a case of what you see is not what you get.

Have you ever dated someone who turned out radically different then you thought they were?

Let me know

Saturn opposite Venus Synastry

Published March 21, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

 

the road to hell

I never try I always walk away but when someone tells you they are doing everything they can to make you happy; you want to give it a go. When they tell you their intentions are not to hurt you, you want to try. But we all know that saying “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”. A psychic told me we will not make it very far, the two of us we were not meant to be (his Venus squares my north node I am sure this is some Karmic shit) She said I am meant to be single a citizen of the world not bound to anyone…. so I suppose one day I will write a blog post about him in entirety I will confess how I am so tired of leaving people behind and how I attempted to defy fate. How I have given up on the belief of true love, unicorns and Santa Clause.  Secretly I prefer to write a blog post on how I did defy fate….prayers up. I have been praying to god on the regular lately I am not sure he hears me.

His Venus conjuncts my sun, we have a 2 way sun moon sextile and some other really nice aspects but what I feel more than anything is his Saturn opposite my Venus. I wouldn’t wish this aspect on anyone.

Its Karmic all of my relationships no matter how fleeting, dysfunctional or downtrodden they might be are karmic, I have Saturn in the 7th house (so does he). I was thinking maybe relationships for me aren’t meant to be easy …scratch that I know they are not meant to be easy. So for once let me try, like really try

According to Linda Goodman

“Saturn has many lessons to teach Venus and Venus won’t be anxious to learn them. It will occasionally be a struggle but it’s your karmic destiny so you may as well make the best of it.  Saturn may not always but periodically behave toward Venus in a limiting, resentful, critical manner. The Plus side is Saturn will never leave you but will hang around you to provide a large measure of stability”

In the book “The Astrology of Human Relationships” it states

“This comparative combination indicates cold, emotionally distant relationships”

But of all the descriptions I have read the one from http://astromatrix.org/Horoscopes/Synastry-Aspects/Venus-Opposition-Saturn#/ Is by far the most accurate

“Your obligations are standing in the way of your relationship potentials. There is emotional distance as well as physical distance. When the Venus person is in opposition to the Saturn person, it may be very difficult for you to get together because of their other obligations”

There is this feeling of the person being a 1000 miles away, he feels 1000 miles away even when he is telling me everything I ever wanted to hear, even when he calls me daily

It can feel debilitating really.

Ya know I like merging with someone, infusing myself with someone and that won’t be permitted here. It’s like there is a wall up and I can’t get beyond it. I can’t climb over it or drive around it. And quite frankly I don’t understand it.

The other night we were out and I wanted to stay out later and he said I have to go to work in the morning and a lecture on duties and responsibilities followed and I thought wow their goes that Saturn opposite Venus. His responsibilities come before love, they come before me and that is something I could never relate too because I would put love above everything I believe love should come above all. And ya know I have an Aries moon so I think nothing should come before me LOL

It should come as no surprise I handed him a print out of what Saturn opposite Venus means and told him “we have that can you work on it” and he says he doesn’t want to be distant but yet he is even when he is sitting right there.

If you see this aspect in your synastry I believe it will override the nice aspects; Even Venus conjunct Sun

Which in the book “The Astrology of Human Relationships” it states

“This comparative aspect contributes greatly to romantic attraction and may indicate marriage”

Linda Goodman says of Venus conjunct Sun

“Friendship, companionship and loyalty are beaded on a silvery blue cord connecting you even when you are not in the same room” It’s one of the better aspects to have in synastry and maybe one of the reasons I haven’t walked away yet

That’s probably why I try it’s that small glimmer of hope that somehow we can connect that in some way we can transcend these limitations – it’s not looking too good.

Just to recap

Saturn rules

  • Responsibilities
  • Hardship
  • Coldness
  • Karma
  • Work
  • Blocks
  • Restriction

Venus Rules

  • Love
  • Affection
  • Enjoyment
  • Pleasure

When they meet via opposition or square there is a block, coolness, hardship when it comes to love, limitations on affection, and restrictions in pleasure.

I wonder how he receives me I told him I don’t want to nag you he says you aren’t nagging me. “When a car has a flat you don’t throw out the entire car you fix it. I will fix it”, he assures me and I can’t help but smile at his maturity with him being 10 years younger than me all that rational I don’t possess all those Saturn like ways  in a lot of ways its beautiful. I never said he was ill intended I simply said the road to hell was paved with good intentions.

PS It is said  Satan is derived from the word Saturn and The Devil Tarot Card is ruled by Capricorn which in turn is ruled by Saturn

Dating & Aspects that will forever get the side eye

Published March 6, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

cookie-not-so-side-eye

I don’t let astrology dictate who I would date but I will give the side eye from now on to a number of aspects. I expect to add to this list as I continue dating ( feel my eyes roll)

 

Moon Opposite Venus –The you will not complete me aspect

You can read the full post here

http://starsmoonandsun.com/tag/moon-opposition-venus/

This in a mans chart indicates what a man seeks in a wife (the moon) and what he wants for pleasure (Venus) does not come in the same package. This can highlight infidelity or a general feeling of being unfulfilled.

Mars square or opposite Uranus- I cant keep my hands to myself aspect

Mars is the sex drive and aggression when it aspects Uranus the planet of the unexpected, liberation and sudden urges this is someone that may have little self control regarding sexual urges and also with anger

Venus Opposite Mars – Projection is my Perfection

These people have perfected the art of projection. Here the planet of War meets the planet of love. They like or at the very least subconsciously create inharmonious relationships. Love and War go hand and hand. Passionate YES but also combustible. They often have tumultuous relationships but see the other person as being the issue. Oppositions involve others, they seem to happen from outside of ourselves.  So in their mind you make them mad, you are abusive, you have anger issues. If they took a moment they would notice they keep recreating the same scenario; the players may change but the game stays the same

 

Moon in the 1st house -I cant offer you emotional stability

This placement is personally not for me I have attempted it twice and the 3rd time will not be the charm. As a hetero woman I never want to meet another man with this placement. The moon in the 1st indicates the disposition is changeable, the moods fluctuate, self esteem fluctuates up and down up and down up and down. This can be similar to having planets in cancer I am already emotional my men need to be rock solid Besides moody men are kind of a turn off

 

 

Let me know what aspects do you give the side eye too

Neptune Opposite Mercury Poetic Liar

Published February 27, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

 

 

Lately I have been thinking I should take my show on the road and date all the men in the United States that have serious issues and afterward blog about the astrological indicators that serve as HUGE red flags that I love to ignore.

I knew this man for several years and he always had a crush on me or so he has said.  Everyone that knows us will say he liked me until one day he didn’t or maybe he never did.

They don’t tell you in astrology school the curse of being able to read for everyone else is the inability to read for yourself.

He has personal issues including 2 stalkers (red flag ladies) but I recall one fall day saying to friend “I would swear on a stack of bibles for that man”

I checked our chart later to revel his Sun (identity, ego) opposes my Neptune (Rose colored glasses) exact

I don’t see him clearly, perhaps it goes two ways maybe he doesn’t see me clearly either. And maybe upon seeing me up close he came to find I wasn’t that Neptunian Dream he once deemed me to be. Who knows…. I would love to know your experiences with this aspect

After our first date I thought he could be my new muse and god a new muse was so long over due.  We had 3 dates back to back I thought I could fall head over heels in love with this man and then he fell right off the face of the earth

Neptune also rules evaporation. POOF and he was gone

My Aquarius barista at Starbucks offered to call him “Maybe he died” he suggested making my Venti Macchiato

I am intuitive and felt the emotional disconnect. The ethereal cords being severed.

I want to say I did not sleep with him- I am for sexual exploration and all of that I only say this because that makes everything 1000000% stranger

Being with him felt otherworldly, sitting with him, kissing him was like I tapped into some sort of ethereal dream. I haven’t done ecstasy but I imagine this is how it would feel everything was amplified.

I thought wow he is like walking breathing art in motion. (Neptune rules art and transcendental experiences)

The Great Gatsby quote comes to mind

I’d like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around”

I like feeling encased in a bubble with someone, entranced really, the ruler of my 12th is in my 7th

(Relationships are also the cause of my own self undoing but we shall save that post for another day)

And if that feeling, that vibe wasn’t enough, he spoke in song its as if he was fluent in poetry.  I cant even type the words that he spoke because I am so embarrassed  to even admit I was lapping it up like my favorite Ben and Jerry’s. And it was all bullshit

He has Mercury opposite Neptune this aspect has been associated with compulsive liars. I have known liars without it and I have known Neptune/Mercury types that just in general have a sense of confusion, they often have a hard time expressing themselves and they suffer from people misunderstanding them. Some times people with this aspect are  viewed as slow from others. The truth is they are simply misunderstood. Someone told me about this man, “I could never date him he doesn’t get anything”. Truth be told I found his mind fascinating and vibrant.  It was like the world was black and white before and suddenly it was all in color.

Neptune opposite Sun Synastry

Mercury square Neptune Natal

 

I never want to date anyone with these aspects again I am  throwing them up with the Venus opposite Moon man and Mars/Uranus Man

Are their aspects you see in another chart and run from ? Let me know

A Charlie Sheen Update

Published November 19, 2015 by starsmoonandsun

charlie sheen

 

This is a Charlie sheen update post you can read my original post on him below. My heart extends to Charlie Sheen I feel he is an addict with mental health issues that has been exploited by women for a very long time. They admittedly went to his house to have sex with him some hoping to get pregnant, they themselves knowing he was having sex with up to 50 women on rotation but didn’t demand he wear a condom or simply opt out nope because they wanted his money: while I know my opinion is not a popular one I find these women shameful. Some black mailing him regarding his HIV status, they didn’t care that he may potentially infect other women nope they just wanted a pay day! So really who was exploiting whom? This all comes down to money. Who was caring for Charlie Sheen when he was on a binge, who was arranging interventions for him certainly not these women. I certainly don’t see them as victims but more so as contributors. And if any legal charges should come down the road for Charlie Sheen the ones who knew should be also considered coconspirators.

Astrologically speaking Charlie Sheens progressed Sun moved into Scorpio in early March 2015 and is currently in 0 degrees. This marks a new beginning, a start, in Scorpio the ruler of transformation, death, and yes sexually transmitted diseases. Ruled by Pluto Scorpio is often symbolized by the Phoenix this is the sign of facing our own mortality, confronting the darkest parts of our soul before being reborn. Before becoming the eagle soaring upward and onward.

a1b6c2ebf2ac67d17e5650949e999527

From now until 2018 Charlie has transit after transit and I wonder how someone can survive all of this.

Via progression Charlie has some major losses to his money planet Venus Progressions stay active one degree approaching, one degree exact and one degree separating. A progression can last about 3 years ( If you have not taken a class on progressions I will advise you they are NOT read like transits. Do not attempt to read them without reading about them) I don’t know when this blackmailing of Charlie Sheen began but his Progressed Venus (planet that rules women, money, love etc) began squaring Saturn (karma, restriction, loss) in the summer of 2012 then with that still being active progressed Venus squared his natal Uranus (unexpected and unforeseen changes financially) and with those still being active progressed Venus also is squared by natal Pluto (all or nothing, heavy losses). As of today Pluto and Uranus continue to square his Venus via progression and will do so over the next year. This doesn’t look fortunate financially especially with all his homes on the market and countless lawsuits looming over his head.

We don’t have the exact time frame that he was diagnosed with HIV so I won’t get into this too deeply I believe he has claimed it was in 2011- Pluto had been transiting his 8th house for quite some time and Saturn first entered his 6th house while in Libra in September 2011. I am not well versed in Medical Astrology and do not want to speculate all I can say is the 6th house rules health and Saturn’s transit through the 6th can indicate the onset of a chronic disease.  Is HIV classified as a chronic disease I am not sure?

Currently Charlie Sheen has Saturn transiting his 7th house while the 7th house is often connected with open enemies and marriage it is also the house of legalities and lawsuits. Wherever Saturn transits it is where we experience karma, have to pay the piper so to say. His chart has some challenging transits coming up involving Saturn. In January Saturn will square his Sun (issues involving vitality, ego, joy, identity) then go on to square his natal Saturn and around February Saturn will square his Pluto and Uranus. And while all of this is happening transiting Uranus will oppose his Venus –indicating again some losses financially (this is like a double whammy with a similar progression also happening); followed by Pluto squaring his Venus in Libra again indicating big losses and the potential to file for bankruptcy. And by the time 2017 arrives Saturn will be conjunct his moon with Neptune opposing his sun. Saturn bringing to the forefront karma (Saturn) involving women (moon) and I m not sure how and if he will ever overcome his addiction tendencies with Neptune opposing his sun. Neptune rules addiction, escapism and the need to dissolve into something greater and transcend reality.

 

A friendly reminder

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

 

You can see my original Charlie Sheen Post Here From 2011-ish & I copied and pasted it below 

http://starsmoonandsun.com/celebrity-astrology-2/winning-and-the-astrology-of-charlie-sheen/

He is messy yet somehow endearing and brings to the forefront of my mind questions like, how is it as a society we stand by and watch this man self destruct. Even more than that, buy tickets to his one man self destruction tour at places such as Radio City Music Hall. Charlie was born under a Virgo Sun on September 3, 1965 and if the internet is correct at 10:48 PM in New York, NY. The Virgo sign in itself rules the 6th house in astrology which encompasses; small pets, daily routine, work and health HABITS. Habits keyword and quite obviously a case of habits going arise. Virgos are nothing if not consistent. With Charlie Making his way onto TMZ.com again, the idea of his astrology and utter immortality have peaked my interest.

5th House Emphasis

Charlie’s Virgo Sun is in his 5th house….Awww so is mine! I feel a sense of comradery with those that have a 5th house Sun. Our longing to create something, the 5th house is naturally ruled by Leo. Home to “I Create” any Sun placed in 5th will have a dramatic flair and Lioness tendencies. Needing to be the center of attention, to feel the pulse of those around us. The 5th house rules children, creative abilities and speculation such as; gambling. There is some amount of risk involved with the 5th house. We are risk takers. Jump in take a chance. I’ll try anything once. You only live once are Sun in 5th house mottos. Charlie as we can see is all about taking risks. In his 5th house are also 2 major players in the zodiac. Pluto planet of transformation, death and rebirth and Uranus planet of surprise. These 2 transformative planets are conjoining his Sun and each other. The Sun as I have discussed in previous posts is the identity, the ego. Uranus is the unexpected, surprise and rebellion and Pluto is death, transformation and rebirth. Being that they are all in the same house and in the same sign this is a conjunction. Almost as if the Sun, Pluto and Uranus are holding hands. They are used simultaneously. They are in Harmony with one another. These are MAJOR players in the zodiac. Uranus placed in 5th house usually indicates unexpected or unplanned pregnancies. We look to the 5th house to see if and how many children you will have. I imagine Charlie has gotten many a girl pregnant besides the 5 he is believed to have with former High school girlfriend, ex wife Aquarian Denise Richards (love her) and other ex wife and train wreck and Leo Brook Mueller. Also Pluto the planet of death and rebirth Pluto , sometimes means birth figuratively as well as literally..as in giving birth to a child or children. With Charlie’s Sun conjoining Uranus this means he appears radical. Scratch that he IS radical, a true renegade, he bucks the system. He hates the system. He is a true individual. I have natal Uranus trine Sun, this makes for a lighter aspects. I’m comfortable with my uniqueness but the conjunction amplifies this to the next level. You may notice individuals with Sun conjoining Uranus seem disheveled; perhaps there style of dress is messy and speech is erratic. They may appear that way however they are prone to sudden flashes of insight and genius. Tiger Blood, perhaps with a sober mind this may have been conveyed and understood better. Ha! They live and breathe uniqueness add that to Sun conjunct Pluto and he has the inept ability to look at someone and see through them. They live in extremes, Pluto is a powerful force and these people are brimming with intensity. Very sexual in nature can almost be compulsive. Hmmm Hookers and Goddesses anyone?

Neptune the planet of Addiction and Escapism and Mars the Planet of Sex

Here is how Neptune works, where it is placed you will have escapism tendencies. Neptune is prominent in the charts of many people that struggle with addiction, Demi Moore, Whitney Houston; Johnny Cash…the list goes on and on. Natal Neptune in 4thhouse perhaps you had an addict in your parental home, Neptune in the 5th child with drinking issues, well here is Charlie with Neptune planet of escapism in his 6th house of Daily Habits. It doesn’t get any more literal than that. Sometimes when reading a natal chart you don’t have to seek, surf and dig the answers are right there. The planet Neptune as I stated represents escapism and it is conjoins his planet Mars. Mars represents your sex drive, his Mars is placed in Scorpio, it is at home there. Sex appeal full throttle. Sex drive is amplified. A person with Mars conjunct Neptune may fantasize more so about a perfect partner and how can I say this delicately…I can’t: they like porn. They like the idea of this perfect woman. Neptune colors the way people see you, Neptune rules glamour. Having Neptune conjunct Mars indicates others see him and are drawn to him sexually. And with them both located in the 6th house of daily habits sex and porn is most likely on his daily “to do “list.

Jupiter and Venus: Making money

Jupiter and Venus are considered the great benefices in astrology. They represent what comes easy where you like to spend money, how you earn money and where you are just plain lucky. How nice it must be to have Jupiter in the 2nd house, the 2nd house is the money you earn (Jupiter in the 8th house states you earn money via spouse or inheritance) Jupiter in the 2nd house makes earning money just easy for you. Ca-ching. Opportunities easily present themselves it’s almost like cash has dropped down from the sky and into your lap. And with all he gets Charlie is probably very giving. He makes money easily and likes to spend it lavishly as well. How much coke was in that brief case reported by www.TMZ.com. Venus in the 6th house indicates you can make money easily as well through some sort of daily activity. And Venus is quite strong being placed in sign of rulership Libra

The 8th house moon, Loneliness an addiction

With a Sagittarius moon it is often said that the only thing a Sagittarius loves more than you is his freedom. They are eternal wanderers and in a way they belong to the world. They are freedom seekers. However with his moon snug in the sad 8th house home to transformation, psychoanalysis and sex we can surmise that just as the moon changes in size every night he will expierence some great heights and lows emotionally. Prone to emotional depths and sorrow. While he is a freedom seeker by sign…placed in the darkness of the 8th house he may experience bouts of loneliness. I think of this as being surrounded by 20 so called good friends on a Yacht in the South of France and yet you still feel lonely. Like no one really gets you. Fuck you may as well be on Gilligan’s Island. That is 8th house Moon to me.

In Closing I bet Charlie adores his children (Sun in 5th), Enjoys love affairs, taking risks and all that comes with a 5th house Sun. I would surmise he is abundantly generous (Jupiter in 2nd house) and most definitely free spirited (Sagittarius moon and Gemini rising) He should never remarry and wrap up his equipment frequently ;)(Pluto & Uranus in the 5th  The fifth house does rule casual sex and Virgo’s generally rule health).  He has a ride till you die spirit and while I won’t be buying any tickets to his one man Self Destruction Tour, if he asked I wouldn’t mind partying the night away with another 5th house Sun Hey after all you only live once!
