Astrology- Venus in Taurus

Venus moves in, as ruler of its natural home, Taurus, today!
It’s the archetypal energy of welcoming the Queen to her favorite castle, the one made of stone and trimmed in gold.
This means the planet of interpersonal relationships may be slipping into something a bit more comfortable, and nestling down into its well-feathered bed and pulling out old love letters about now~ Venus stays in this happiest of places through April 4.

Mercury, planet of conversation and communication goes retrograde Monday March 12 through April 4th as well. It will be a time to reminisce good times gone by, review plans and promises, but not to start new communications or sign any dotted lines! Pulling out an old family album or yearbook might be in store for the sentimental among us- just try not to wallow in self-pity or regret. Get the trusty pen and paper out and send off a handwritten missive to long lost friends and family, as computers tend to go haywire during a Mercury retrograde. You have a week’s warning to BACK UP your hard-drives!

Venus is about to parallel the largest planet – Jupiter – very soon. Their exact parallel happens Tuesday, March 6 at 6:39AM UT. The Moon and Venus brush by each other just prior to this event like secret lovers eyeing one another from across the room…time to play and make romance…and do those things which make you feel most pampered!

The only caution is early Tuesday morning, be careful not to over-spend or over-indulge as you may be tempted to do. The Moon parallels Mars later on Tuesday, bringing assertion, brashness and boldness to the forefront of emotions. Be sure that what you want to say is worded in a non-threatening way. You can get your point across and still be civil. Take action, but be gallant.

Wednesday, March 14th four major planets join to form a grand trine in earth signs; Venus and Jupiter (the Lover and Santa Claus of planets) meet at her place, making a comfortable link to action-hero Mars in Virgo (the gallant consort Gallahad) and they all trine, or meet with ease, Mr Pluto, the transforming wizard in the sign of Capricorn, Lord of bones, structures and honored traditions. This Earth energy will keep us all well-supported in any changes we elect to make, esp regarding love and comfort. So start making your wish lists for Santa now and be ready to act on them soon!

The new moon occurs March 22 at 2* Aries, showing us the truth of human nature and giving us the capacity to look objectively at our selves and others. If we can smile through the tears we can go far. This will provide us with a chance to pull out of our sentimentality and look into the mirror directly. It could prove a day which shows us what we are really made of – especially in relationship to the world as it shifts and humanity as a whole. Will we show our heart’s compassion or hide away in fear? This could be a milestone day in which the future is built. Be bold. We have love on our side!

~Appreciate this month’s-worth of comfort, joy and spirit of community. May it give you the strength to find peace, happiness and serenity within~ even among the midst of external chaos.
Namaste
