  • 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

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus.. March 2019

Celestial Event….

Date: March 6 2019

Time: 3:26 am (ET) 12:26 am (PT)

Event: Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus♉. 

What does this mean?

  • Uranus rules Aquarius… he is the planet of shock, change and chaos, and rebellion… following the rules isn’t his thing.. shaking things up a bit it more his style… 😉 Uranus/Aquarius is connected to the 11th house of friends, hobbies, team work and humanitarian work… 
  • Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and money… beautiful things and harmonious relationships… Taurus NEEDS emotional and financial security and is connected to the 2nd house. 
  • With Uranus in Taurus, we may find ourselves looking into unique and different ways of taking care of our finances… take care though, as we might be a little too happy to take more risks than usual. Looking for a better job or ways to improve our working life and career prospects may be at the top of the agenda for some, especially if there is a positive financial bonus involved.
  • On the positivee end of things, we may see an improvement in our financial and residential circumstances, a wind fall or an unexpected raise could be in the offing for some… 🙂 
  • On the less favorable end, jobs may be lost or lay off’s announced, thrusting some folks into a worrisome and unwanted change to the future of their financial and residential security. When this happens it will be important for folks to remember that old saying… “when one door closes, another opens” and watch carefully for that open door… Change while being upsetting and unsettling, sometimes is necessary… 
  • When it comes to our relationships, be open to just about anything, as things may not move along in quite the same way we may have imagined… This may not be the best time to jump into a new relationship, our expectations may change as Uranus moves through Taurus and we get used to the energy… Keep in mind that Taurus is always happiest when feeling secure in emotions and finances… Just because something or someone “tickles your fancy” over the next few months, it doesn’t mean it will for the long-term… 😉 
  • This celestial movement will have the strongest effect on those with the following in their charts.. 
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Taurus
  • Uranus in the 11th house
  • Uranus in the 2nd house
  • Aspects to Venus
  • Personal planets in Taurus or Aquarius
  • **NOTE** Mercury is in Retrograde Motion to March 28 and remains in its storm until April 6th. Take extra care if making important decisions during this time… especially if they relate to finances or residential situations.

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you, from: DailyOm on “Walking through your fear”

Walking through Your Fear


Frequently, in walking through our fear, we discover that the strength of our fright was out of sync with reality.

The situations, activities, and individuals that frighten us remain static. Their relative intensity does not change. Fear, on the other hand, self-magnifies. It is when you are afraid and envisioning all that might go wrong that the energy underlying your fear grows. A tiny flicker of anxiety can easily develop into a terror that manifests itself physically and eventually paralyzes you into inaction. Though frequently, in walking through that fear, we discover that the strength of our fright was out of synch with reality. And we learn that doing what frightens us can lead to great blessings. Confronting your trepidation head-on will help you accept that few frightening scenarios will ever live up to the negative disasters that we sometimes play out in our minds. 

Though fear is literally an evolutionary gift meant to sharpen your senses and energize you during times of great stress, it can nonetheless become a barrier that prevents you from fulfilling your potential by causing you to miss out on rewarding, life-changing experiences. During the period before you face your fear, you may have to deal with a barrage of negative thoughts and emotions. Walking through it, whether your fear is public speaking, taking part in an activity that makes you nervous, or asserting yourself when the odds are against you, may be equally as difficult. But once you have emerged unscathed on the other side, which you will, you will likely wonder why you assumed the worst in the first place. As you spend time worrying about what might happen, it’s good to know that your fear probably won’t happen at all. It may feel like a great weight has been lifted from your shoulders, and you will likely feel a sense of passionate pride. Walking through your fear can mean taking risks and can require both practice and patience. Since it is challenging to act when you are gripped with fear, start small. 

Each step you take into fear will strengthen you and help you confront future fears with poise, courage, and confidence. You will also find that when you are willing to stare your fear in the face, the universe will always offer you some form of aid or support. When you see the heights of accomplishment and personal evolution you can attain when you walk through your fears, your faith in yourself will grow, allowing your next step to be easier.

From our inbox to you from the Dark Pixie on “what it means to be an empath”


An empath is one who is sensitive by nature, able to feel the moods of others and at times pick up their intentions, thoughts and more. Many empaths are lightworkers, if not all, which means that in addition to one’s personal life purpose, the empath is meant to serve humanity for the highest good of all. Likely, if you are an empath, you are drawn to doing just that in whatever capacity feels the most fitting for you.

At heart, empaths are kind, generous, loving and dedicated individuals, but many also have mischievous and solitary natures. Many empaths share a close bond to animals and nature because the vibration is a match more than with many people.

Living in the world as an empath can be challenging at times. An empath must shield and ground daily to avoid picking up unwanted energies. Care must be taken with relationships of all types because often the light of the empath is sought by those who have dimmed their own.

Another challenge can be found in the competing desires of wanting to help and serve versus needing solitude; balance must be realized but this can take many life lessons to accomplish. Most of all, an empath must remember to give themselves the warm love and compassion that they so freely lend to others, believing in themselves and embracing their life mission in every way.

About Joy:


Jocelyn Joy Thomas is an intuitive empath with an Etsy shop where you can purchase readings from her. She has a few empath readings that she offers, including for love, career, and your spiritual path – check them out, fellow empaths!
