  • What does it mean?
  • Venus is the planet of money and beauty, she is the most feminine of the planets and is sometimes referred to as the “Goddess of Love” She rules Libra and Taurus.
  • Taurus is ruled by Venus, so she is probably happy visiting here.. Taurus needs emotional and material security, can be slow to learn but once she has grasped the lesson she won’t soon forget it… 
  • Money can come our way while Venus is here, perhaps in the form of a raise, bonus, award or inheritance
  • Good time to sort out the closet and if you live in a warmer climate it’s a good time to set up a yard sale. 
  • While money may be coming our way in some form or another, we could also be tempted to spend more, especially if we are drawn to works of art or “pretty things” for our home, office or person.
  • Some of us may be tempted by comfort foods and drink
  • Venus is sitting in the 7th house (equal) as she moves into her comfort sign of Taurus. Venus knows all about love and relationships, focus will be on partnerships and relationships during the next few weeks. 
  • Getting out and about might not be at the top of the agenda if we are feeling tired, instead staying cozy, warm and safe in our homes may sound like a better idea
  • Those who aren’t happy with, icky, dirty, sticky or “ugly” will feel it even more now
  • Could be a good time for those who enjoy singing
  • This astrological event will have a slight effect on everyone but will have a stronger effect on the those who have any of the following in their charts.
  •          Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Taurus
    • Moon in Taurus
    • Aspects to Venus

Mars moves into the sign of Cancer. 

Date: May 15 2019 toAugust 1 2019

Time: 11:09 pm (ET) 8:09 pm (PT)

What does it mean?

  • Mars is the most masculine of the planets, he rules Aries, and was the ruler of Scorpio until Pluto was discovered. 
  • Mars is action and agression he can be brave or forcefull. He is connected to the element of Fire through Aries. He can be selfish, but also heroic.
  • Mars is sitting in the 9th house of travel and higher learning. 
  • Cancer is ruled by the Moon the “planet” that rules our emotions and reactions. 
  • Cancer is sensitive and rules our domestic world/ways.
  • She can be nurturing, but she can also be clingy and moody. 
  • This may be a good time to focus on domestic repairs and working around the house…
  • Watch for upsets with family members if conversations and get togethers become emotional. 
  • A good time to learn something new or gain new information on a subject that interests us. 
  • Take extra care when handling tools, working on ladders or using any sharp instruments… this may be an accident prone time for some of us. 
  • This astrological movement can affect us all, however those with a strong Mars/Aries or Cancer chart influence are likely to feel the affects the most.

&

HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAILY LIVES… 

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.

  • Could be lots of chit chatting going on, and some of us may have to make a concerted effort to listen instead of chat.
  • In the 11th house When it comes to doing things for or within the community, some of us may become busier then we may have expected. These next few days may be great for networking and team work. We may want to help everyone, but we may not always appear emotionally approachable… 😏
  • It’s a good time to get those lists and notes made up… we can feel good about putting pen to paper now.
  • Boredom may be at our door step and we may feel more restless than usual.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Pluto goes Retrograde April 24 2019

 

 

Pluto is the planet of regeneration, death, destruction, decay, sex, reincarnation, recycling and rejuvenation. He is the ruler of Scorpio (old ruler of Scorpio was Mars) and he is connected to the 8th house and the reproductive organs in the human body. Pluto is one of the outer planets of our system and as such, his influence isn’t as strong as the inner planets… but it will still affect us to some extent…He is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn and will remain retrograde until October 2 2019. 

What does it mean when Pluto goes Retrograde? 

  • We may find we are re-assessing our use of power, or how we “control or manipulate” others/situations.
  • Some folks may find they are “forced” into giving up bad habits.. (which isn’t a bad thing if it’s helps you to become a better you)
  • Our desire to control, or for control decreases, this can be a good thing for the folks around the folks who get through life by controlling or “bullying” others for the sake of their own agenda’s… But might not be so good for the folks who need a push to get motivated or moving with life. 
  • This can be a good time to reflect on how we have been dealing with the changes and transformations that have taken place since the last Pluto retrograde… if we haven’t been doing too well with our changes, we might get some clues on how to make it a little easier now. 
  • If you have folk in your life who have a tendency to want to control you, (remember, this is sometimes done out of love and good intentions) .. it’s as good a time as any right now to distance yourself from these folks or to remove them from your life all together. 
  • Those with the following in their natal, transit or progressed charts will feel the effects of this Pluto retrograde the most.
  • Sun in Scorpio
  • Moon in Scorpio
  • Pluto in Scorpio
  • Ascendant in Scorpio
  • Midheaven in Scorpio
  • Aspects to Pluto
  • Pluto aspects to the Sun, Moon Mars, Mercury, and Venus.
  • Sun in the 8th house
  • Pluto in the 8th house.

    • The Moon in the 3rd house. (equal house system) Good for journal writing… we could be busier than usual… and if we aren’t some of us might become a little bit cranky out of boredom… 😻Sensitive folks, try not to take things said too personally… and less sensitive folks, take the time out to listen to what others are saying…😎
