Looking beautiful, feeling stubborn and being material? It might be the vibrations of the Taurus Full Moon on Monday. This is a fixed, finance focused Earth sign guided by the elegant, luxury loving planet Venus. Whatever vibes are out there can all be put to good use. Indulge the sensual side while monitoring investments. Share chocolate covered strawberries with a significant other while tallying the checkbook at the same time. It’s possible 😎
As always with a “Full” Moon, it’s a good time to finish what you’ve started. With the grounded Taurus influence, it makes sense to complete any financial dealings and/or improvements to surroundings – beauty, comfort and safety. What do you value most? Who do you need to be – to do what you want and have what you desire?

The Autumn Equinox arrives the same day as the Sun glides into charming Libra on Thursday September 22, 2016. Relationships of all types are now in the forefront for the next few weeks – family, friends, marriages, business partners. It’s fun to be with people, to chat, flirt, cajole. This very social 7th sign of the Zodiac, ruled by Venus, seeks cooperation and genial negotiations in both business and personal interactions.
The Libra way is to see both sides of an issue before making decisions. Seeking harmony by trying to be “fair” can sometimes lead to appearing wishy-washy. Using the “Pros/Cons” list method for making decisions can just draw the selection process out. Be aware that important action can be stalled by over think. Paying attention to instinct and being honest will give a more direct line to a choice. Don’t hesitate to show your spine when needed (some may be surprised when the Libra inner tensile strength is revealed), you’ll still be loved!
Even if it isn’t your Sun or Rising sign, the Libra Sun will still cast a glow. Along with the influence of transiting Jupiter, the upbeat, ”good luck” planet, 9/9/16 – 10/10/17, you may notice a definite lean towards the lush things in life – music, good food, beauty – to warm and lift spirits. My suggestion for anything Libran is always: meet some fun folks for brunch / lunch!
Libra Sun * Fall Equinox 9/22/16 – 10:22 AM Eastern / 7:22 AM Pacific

BTW: The Scale is Libra’s Astrology symbol. All other Zodiac signs are either people or animals. (Interpret that however you wish.)
And, Heads up! Last but not least: Mercury Retrograde ends – the communication planet stops its reverse trek and goes Direct. Give it a few days. Our gadgets will no longer seem to have a mind of their own. 😈
The Sun rules the 5th sign of the Zodiac and you can tell. With the influence of the “Sun King”, we all should feel strong, upbeat, magnanimous, a bit more dramatic and drawn to the spotlight regardless of our actual Astrology sign. Leo doesn’t get shyness. We are urged to seek attention, to be colorfully creative and just to be full of lion’s pride. When the Sun struts into this regal Fire sign, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay.
Adding to the sparkle and shine experience of a Leo Sun is a Venus transit, 7/12 16 – 8/5/16. The planet of love’s visit brings even more warmth, beauty – love the “luxe”.
Relationship interactions may become livelier and snippier due to clever communication planet Mercury’s Leo transit, 7/13/16 until 7/29/16. Remember to share the conversation, let someone else get a word in – it’s not all about you.
Sun into Leo: July 22, 2016 * 5:30AM EDT / 2:30AM PDT
*Gemstone – Tiger’s Eye *Power colors- Gold, orange (Sun colors) * Body Part – Heart (…of a lion!)
**BTW: The date when the Sun transits into a sign can fluctuate year to year – from the 19th to the 23rd. If born on one of these days, you are considered a cusp baby – close to two signs- but regardless, there is only one Sun sign in an Astrology chart (however, the individual will often exhibit a combo of characteristics from both signs).
(Next up – Virgo Sun 8/22/16)
All things Taurus! The Sun has been in this sensual, security minded, 2nd sign of the Zodiac since 4/19 and on Friday May 6, 2016 the New Moon will join it. With both luminaries in Venus ruled, earthy Taurus, its influences in areas of romance, beauty, creativity and money are intensified. Could it be time for a new love, a new style, a new budget? Why not?
New Moons support fresh beginnings and Taurus urges us to think about how to build and maintain a comfortable, secure life. With this sign’s legendary determination, you can manage your cash and still be good to yourself and loved ones. Create new ways to do it.

On Tuesday April 19, 2016, the Sun moves into stubborn and determined Taurus. It has the Bull as its Astrology symbol, however, since it is ruled by the lovely, romantic planet Venus, this sign has several other dimensions. It can be stuck and resistant to change, but also, a sensual lover of beauty, good food and luxury. While appreciating all the comforts, the second sign of the Zodiac also wants us to be financially secure at all times.
For the next few weeks, regardless of Sun sign, we can all tap into those Taurean traits of strength and endurance so that we solidify and complete the projects started during the high energy of the Aries Sun. Watch out for a tendency to be overcautious – don’t miss an opportunity out of fear. Security is attractive, especially in this financial climate, but, sometimes we have to take a second look to see the advantage.
Taurus luxe will be sweetened by visiting Venus , 4/30 – 5/24 and financial situations can be muddled by a Mercury transit, which began on 4/6, going Retrograde, 4/28 – 5/23 (clever, Mercury remains in Taurus until 6/23/16). If you must negotiate and sign contracts, read everything twice. Don’t rush.
With a Taurus Sun, loved ones are treated to poetry, music and gourmet meals, while getting a lecture on the advantages of saving money – nice mix.

**As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Taurus, but the rest of us will still feel the stable influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Earth sign appears in the birth chart.
The Sun waltzes into Air sign Libra on Wednesday September 23, 2015 along with the Autumn Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere). Even if it isn’t your Sun or Rising, the 7th sign of the Zodiac will still cast a glow. There will be cooperation, genial negotiations and the urge to seek balance in both business and personal relationships. Good things in life are sought after due to the influences of lovely planet ruler Venus – romance, music, delicious food, beauty, graciousness and hospitality. With Mercury transiting Libra until 11/2/15, it should make for even more clever and charming conversation for this very social sign. (Remember, the Communication planet is “Retrograde” until 10/9/15, keep confusion to a minimum by making tweets, emails, texts, etc as clear as possible.)
The Libra way is to see both sides of an issue before making decisions. However, seeking harmony by trying to be “fair” can sometimes lead to appearing indecisive. Or, using the “Pros/Cons” list method for making decisions can just drag the selection process out. Be aware that important, needed action can be stalled by over think. Paying attention to instinct and being honest will give a more direct line to a choice. Don’t hesitate to show your spine when needed (some may be surprised when the Libra inner tensile strength is revealed), you’ll still be loved!
As always, your experience of the Sun in a particular sign depends most upon where it appears in your chart, but the Solar orb in Libra does set a mood to benefit us all. Edges can be smoothed and softened of potentially contentious interactions. My suggestion for anything Libran is always: meet fun folks somewhere beautiful for brunch and or cocktails. Enjoy!

On Monday April 20, 2015, the Sun moves into stubborn and determined Taurus. It has the Bull as its Astrology symbol, however, since it is ruled by the lovely, romantic planet Venus, this sign has several other dimensions. It can be stuck and immovable, but also, a sensual lover of beauty, good food and luxury. While appreciating all the comforts, the second sign of the Zodiac also wants us to be safe and secure.
Regardless of our actual Sun sign, for the next few weeks we can all tap into those Taurean traits of strength and endurance so that we solidify and complete the projects started during the high energy of the Aries Sun.

Saturday’s Libra Moon, February 7, 2015, could be the start of a weekend full of relationship possibilities – personal or business. The 7th sign of the Zodiac, is ruled by the romantic, beautifying planet Venus. With the “scale of justice” as its Astrology symbol, no surprise that cooperation and harmony are important. (Persuade someone over to your point-of-view? Find a compromise?)
Air sign Libra also fosters artistic expression, creativity, wanting to be with people and just generally expecting, and accepting, good times.
Be charming, be social – make it a beautiful weekend!
The symbol for the 11th sign of the Zodiac is the “Water Bearer”, it may be confusing, but Aquarius is definitely an Air sign ruled by the unpredictable, unconventional, undeniably radical planet Uranus. It’s all about independence, the resentment of all “ties that bind”, a love of sudden changes of direction and thinking “outside of the box”. What a way to start the New Year!
Aquarius has a stubborn streak. It is one of three “Fixed” signs of the Zodiac, along with Taurus and Scorpio. While the urge to stand ground and refuse to follow along are all present, give attention to another trait which is the desire to contribute to the universe in some way. Groups, other people and their causes are a natural concern for Aquarius. (It is about “We/Us” rather than “I/Me.) There is determination to resolve issues that are deemed important. Regardless of your birthday, we can all tap into those vibrations as the Sun intensifies this sign’s influences.
And, just to add some additional spice, there will be planets transiting the 11th sign: Mercury will add its cleverness and communication / networking expertise until March 12, 2015 (just remember that it will go into Retrograde motion on 1/21/15. Be clear in speech and written word when rallying your team.) Venus’ visit, until January 27, 2015, can add a calm and a sweetness to fiery rhetoric, solidifying relationships in the midst of revolutionary zeal. If you’re intent upon enrolling people into saving the world, you might as well have fun doing it.

The Capricorn Sun on Sunday December 21, 2014, is the official start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and is the shortest day of the year. This Earth sign, ruled by stern Saturn, believes in duty, responsibility, and loves being in charge. Regardless of our actual birth date, we may all feel the influences of the ambitious 10th sign of the Zodiac and get a thrill directing traffic and telling people what to do. Fun for the boss, but maybe not so much for the employee? Remember to be careful with how you treat others, you can be authoritative with honey, rather than vinegar.
After all the excitement and activities of the holidays, there is no need to have an energy let down. As the year’s end approaches, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in 2014. With Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Plan what’s next for 2015, tune up career moves, set up a networking campaign, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. Just don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and/or cautious. Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.
And just to make it all the more interesting, there are Planets transiting Capricorn during this time:
*Venus (Love, beauty, money) 12/11/14 – 1/3/15 – relaxing of “all or nothing” attitudes for getting ahead. Focus on financial gains?
*Mercury (Communication, travel, tech) 12/17/14 – 1/4/15– Reading/writing can become more serious. Maintain sense of humor. Reign in sharp, hurtful exchanges. Listen.
*Pluto (Rebirth, transformation) has been in Capricorn since 2008 – deep feelings, changes in career direction?, revelations, regeneration (until 2023)
**Capricorn Sun = December 21, 2014…6:03 PM EST / 3:03 PM PST
Gemstone: Obsidian, Onyx *Power color: Black, grays * Body Part: Bones
FYI: “The Winter Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the first day of winter…The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days.” (per WikiPedia)
