Caring, Sensitive Pisces Sun 2/18/18!

On Sunday, February 18, 2018, the 12th sign of the Zodiac has its turn to be in the Sun. Water sign Pisces characteristics, (compassionate, imaginative, & intuitive), are heightened. Spread care and kindness among family and friends. Offer assistance where it is genuinely needed.

Mystical Neptune, Pisces planet ruler, transits until 2025. It has a reputation for clouding the waters, fading boundaries and fostering escapism, but, all these things that make life unsettled can also enhance imagination and creativity. Innovations regarding music, dance, and theater will probably bubble to the surface faster than usual. The subconscious can be a treasure trove of ideas now. Keep paper and pencil handy, jot down your dreams. Over sensitivity to adverse energy or vibrations is no excuse to drift away from reality. Stay grounded and connected. Be productive, listen to your inner voice – the positive one.

Sun into Pisces – February 18, 2018:  12:18 PM EST / 9:18 AM PST

* Gemstone: Amethyst * Power color: Purple * Body Part: Feet

 

The Zodiac: Soulmate Central? Happy Valentine’s Day!

hearts-Valentine’s Day, Wednesday February 14, 2018, isn’t just about flowers and candy. Its also about acknowledging delightful partnerships, a special someone, a match. Remember that after work party, bar pick up line from  years ago – “Hey, what’s your sign?”. It didn’t always result in a “you complete me” hookup, but,  it’s a great question if looking for “interesting” company. Astrology signs are grouped from Aries to Pisces – all 12 have a partner. Does it mean that the sign opposite yours is your “soul mate” – not necessarily, but, there may be undeniable heat, attraction and fun.

Of course there are other factors that create great couples,

But, I thought I would give romance an Astrological slant.

Planets * Energy For The Astrology Chart!

Astro Planet ImagesI call them the “Big 10”. Yes, there are only 8 “planets” (Pluto has been classified as a “planet” again in January 2018″ after being labeled  “dwarf” in 2006), but the 2 luminaries – Sun and Moon – are always included when discussing Astrology.

Planets are the spark plugs in an Astrology chart. They each have a job to do as they energize the many facets of an individual’s personality and life. In addition, a planet is said to have “rulership” of a particular sign (it will be at its happiest and most potent energy when transiting there – fully expressed).

The Planets are listed below along with their Zodiac sign rulerships and duties:

Sun * Leo: Life force, self expression

Moon * Cancer: Emotions, sub conscious, nurturing

Mercury * Gemini and Virgo: Communication (when Mercury goes retrograde, we need to watch what we say and write), transportation, education

Venus * Taurus and Libra: Love, beauty and how we view/value ourselves and money

Mars * Aries: Action, conflict, sexuality

Jupiter * Sagittarius: Expansion, recreation, philosophy

Saturn * Capricorn:  Discipline, boundaries, authority

Uranus * Aquarius: Change, the unconventional, extremes

Neptune * Pisces: Spirituality, dreams, illusion

Pluto * Scorpio: Unconscious, breaking down and rebuilding, secrets

The location of a planet in a birth chart – its House placement, its Astrology Sign – can influence how we act/respond in particular areas of our lives as they currently transit and move around our chart today.
