  • Mercury in Libra: Diplomacy Prevails

    Mercury in Libra: Diplomacy Prevails
    Communication planet Mercury adopts a diplomatic air as it continues to move through Libra until September 29 -- a transit that highlights the value of teamwork and encourages professional compromise. A collaborative approach helps you win friends as you influence people, so make a strong effort to place special focus on how your ideas can create success for yourself and your colleagues!

    Etiquette and appropriateness count more than you may realize, so if you're in doubt about a work matter, simply follow protocol. Justice and fairness are hot topics as Mercury energizes Libra. Equal opportunity issues may also require attention, so if you feel as if a co-worker (or even yourself) has been treated unfairly, be sure to speak up -- tactfully, of course!

  • Experience Soaring Sensuality as Venus Meets Scorpio!

    Experience Soaring Sensuality as Venus Meets Scorpio!
    Venus, the love planet of the universe, is transiting through Scorpio until October 7, and it's no secret that this charming planet doesn't function to the best of its ability in this dark-hued sign. In fact, it has great difficulty operating positively, as this combination can trigger obsessive, controlling behavior in romantic relationships!

    It's crucial to remember now that the more you try to possess someone else, the less likely you'll be to experience any kind of real connection. The scorpion isn't the kindest creature on the planet, and when threatened, it will aim to eliminate anything -- or anyone -- perceived as an opponent.

    How much do you know about the compatibility of your relationship? Is your love truly sent from above? Find out today with a free sample Heaven Sent Reading!

    Since it feels most at home in peace-seeking signs such as Libra and Taurus, Venus can be quite uncomfortable in Scorpio, a sign known for ruthless transformation and often-painfully honest

  • Pursue Your Passion as Venus and Saturn Connect!

    Pursue Your Passion as Venus and Saturn Connect!
    When Venus, the planet of love and beauty, meets the cosmic taskmaster of Saturn in the dark waters of Scorpio this Wednesday, you'll be summoned to pursue your passion in a way that's reflected by the amount of time you devote to it. You'll also be given the opportunity to wed time and resources spent with what you love most. Are you ready to commit to your own depths, refusing to settle for a life less than the one you're capable of living?

    On a darker note, this merger between Venus and Saturn in Scorpio could also reveal deep wounds embedded at the karmic bone level, where you've perhaps felt unwanted in the past. It's worth noting that a huge abandonment complex is often revealed when these two planets lock arms in Scorpio. Can you give yourself permission to reclaim your passionate fire by not wasting time or energy on anything that takes you away from what you want most? It's time to heal these wounds as you ask yourself what could regenerate your creativity and life-force in a

  • Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Soulful Retreat

    Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Soulful Retreat
    After weeks of focusing on work, work, and more work, this Thursday's harvest full Moon in Pisces reminds you of the importance of escapism and soulful retreat. If you've been a busy little Virgo bee overwhelmed by to-do lists, projects, and detox protocols, the opposite polarity of Pisces kicks in later this week to get you back into the big picture -- where magic and mysticism reside!

    The traditional ruler of Pisces, Jupiter, is now halfway through the constellation of Cancer, where it's emphasizing home, family, and a general mood of nostalgia. The question now is: What nurtures your soul? If you're prone to workaholic tendencies, the strong polarity of Pisces will reveal these addictive tendencies, while the shadows will ask you to examine what you're hiding from. In other words, how do you use work to hide from the deeper creatures crawling up from the depths within yourself?

    Create harmony between your spirit and your space by decorating your home according to the inherent qualities of your Sun sign. Enjoy these style must-haves -- inspired by the cosmos!

    Aries
    Large statement pieces that are also practical are key for you. You're not interested in fussy detailed touches; rather, you prefer keeping your home clear so plenty of action can happen!

    Taurus
    Comfort is your top priority. You're partial to quality over quantity and will take your time to save -- and then splurge -- on key elements such as couches and bedding. Natural fabrics and earthy tones serve you well.

    Gemini
    Your airy nature means light and height are key design features for you. Lots of windows and brightness are essential, and a view is ideal. Most important of all is a location conducive to socializing.

    Cancer
    "Food is love" could be a Cancer motto, so a kitchen that allows you to cook and connect with loved ones at the same time is mandatory. An outdoor area for socializing is

  • Flow with the Moon's Natural Rhythm!

    Flow with the Moon's Natural Rhythm!
    Before electric lights were invented, the increasing or decreasing light of the Moon set the rhythm for human activity. When the Moon was full and bright, nights were active, festive, and social. As the Moon decreased and the night plunged into shadow, people pulled back and planned ahead.

    If you'd like to flow with the Moon's natural rhythm in your own life, mark these special Moon times on your calendar and consider them when planning your monthly activities.

    Start by celebrating your accomplishments during the full Moon. Full Moons welcome relaxation and socializing, so reward yourself for work well done with a special feast, time at the spa, or simply a relaxing bath. The full Moon's bright light illuminates the sky a few days before and after the full Moon, so make the party last! (The next full Moon occurs on September 19 in the sign of Pisces.)

    Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
    You're competitive and you love a good challenge, so if you get together with family members or work colleagues about who can recycle the most, you'll be more likely to get involved. Fire signs thrive on new initiatives, so your challenge will be to maintain interest after your initial enthusiasm dies down. Keep things simple to make it easy.
