Oscar Sun Sign 2014

Who is Matthew McConaughey?

The man with a 2014 Oscar in his hand. The movie: “Dallas Buyers Club”. He plays Ron Woodroof, a man diagnosed with HIV who finds a way to obtain the drugs for a better life; drugs that are forbidden according to the government and the pharmaceutical companies. He became best known for starring in romantic comedies; but good for him in 2010 moved away from them and became highly acclaimed as the great drama actor in the “The Lincoln Lawyer” or in “Mud”. He was born on the 4th of November. He is Scorpio. You see, we now have Saturn in Scorpio and that means a lot of hard work and discipline, but a lot of reward.  He also has Mercury in Scorpio and that helped from the communication point of view.

Who is Cate Blanchett?

The woman with a 2014 Oscar in her hand. An interesting movie made by Sagittarius Woody Allen called: “Blue Jasmine”. It captures a delusional woman, Jasmine attempting to rebuild herself after an extravagant life she lived. I highly recommend it. Jasmine is a magical Taurus woman who shines in this role. Cate allows us to glimpse the fear and vulnerability beneath Jasmine’s surface. The performance is like watching a stunning vase that will in the end reveal all drama of women of her kind. Cate is born on the 14th of May. In 2004, Blanchett played in Martin Scorsese’s “The Aviator” also brought her numerous awards, including an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She is a Taurus woman with the Neptune still in Saturn that tells us that this hard, old, mastery planet Saturn is the king and can decide things now and then.

What do they have in common? They have Neptune in Scorpio and that is really good as now we have Neptune in Pisces; watery and friendly signs; they both have Saturn in Taurus and that goes hand in hand with this Saturn in Scorpio; they both have the True Node in Pisces and that means art, theater, cinema, film and a lot of success here.  Oh, and yes, they both won the Oscar this year!

Love them both and hope you like them too! Please share the post if you like it!

Taurus 2014 – career and learning

Dear Taurus, this is your general description of the Green Wood Horse, 2014. New interests and learning continue to be a positive theme in 2014 and later this year, there can be a real settling down process. Remember 2014 is a year of relationships, a year where we create and work for them or we just get rid of the ones that are not doing any good to our lives. This year we take action and make decisions, we don’t plan; we just feel what we should do. I know that this is not your way of doing things, but only this year you have to feel things before you do them. Not all decisions must be based on instinct, but this is the general trend. Venus and Mars are 2 very important planets in the year of the Green Wood Horse and these are both retrograde at the start of the year and that is why we have to be careful in anything we do in our relations. These planets have a great impact in your life, dear Taurus.

Venus, your ruler will send you on a quest to see a different kind of love affair. This could be someone you meet on your travels or in a college environment or at work. A past love may come to haunt you and you have to be prepared. But pay attention as Venus is retrograde till the 31st of January and for you that means you have to be very careful in any relations that you start now. Evaluate these relations and don’t rush into anything at the start of the year. Venus will form a very positive aspect later on in the year from March till April, when she will help you win a good position or just have good luck at work. Prepare for a good start in this area of your life. Mars is also going to retrograde at the start of this year in March, April and May 2014 and that is a sign of just a going to the negotiations room and not to war. I know you like this and you are going to handle this period just fine. This is not a good time to go to court or to start or end anything legal. Create a pleasant atmosphere and allow yourself to have a peaceful work environment. Bring creativity at work and you can win a dream job or just a good career opening. Some hopes and dreams can come true if you just treat them wisely, don’t rush and don’t make mistakes, oh and yes, the most important aspect – build relations!  Another astrological event is going to be the Cardinal Grand Cross and now some relations will end on not such a friendly matter.

As I said, decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory in a year like this one. That goes for the major changes this year. These are given by the 4 eclipses that we have in our astrological chart. Eclipses in 2014 for you will mean changing your health habits, your relation with work. There is a possibility that you are going to work more than you can and you have to take care of yourself. You will have a Solar Eclipse in Taurus on the 29th of April 2014 and that means that you have to change, you are the main focus and try to put yourself on top of the list. In October the focus will be money and the way you spend those. As I put my advice for the Year of the Green Wood Horse: Take a leap of faith, Have a breakthrough and fly and that works perfect with you.

Another planet that is helping you with change this year is Uranus in Aries. Uranus is the planet of surprises, invention, independence and awakening is proudly affecting your solar house that has to do with hidden parts, endings, as Uranus is in Aries. In March 2011, Uranus entered Aries and that marked the beginning of a period full with changes Uranus helps release you from unconscious habit patterns, perhaps stirring up your private life.

Jupiter is the planet of good luck, the planet that brings expansion, blessings, optimism and prosperity. Jupiter will help you with your change in your career. At the starts of the year, Jupiter will mark these main things: networking, learning new things, more optimistic and a lot of hard work. Travel, learn from this travel, meet some new people, learn from them and study.  From July 2014, you can relax and you can think about your home environment a little more. It’s a good time to buy a house or just invest in the one you have. Jupiter and Taurus near home make a great pair!

Have a great year, dear Taurus!

Aries 2014 – Children and Romance

Dear Aries, this is your general description of the Green Wood Horse. 2014 is a year for discovering what makes you truly happy, and new avenues for self-expression can seem to magically open up for you. Remember 2014 is a year of relations, a year where we create and work for them or we just get rid of the ones that are not doing any good to our lives. This year we take action and make decisions, we don’t plan; we just feel what we should do. Venus and Mars are 2 very important planets this year and these are both retrograde at the start of the year and that is why we have to be careful in anything we do in our relations and that goes especially to you dear Aries. You are the Fire Sign that is very sensible to Venus and Mars.

Venus is retrograde till the 31st of January and for you that means you have to be very careful in any relationship regarding your co workers, your boss or any kind of relation at job. Try to be as calm as possible, learn the art of diplomacy, listen to others and see what they have to say. This is exactly the point of the Venus retrograde cycle – to put us in front of some facts that we don’t normally see. Mars is also going to retrograde at the start of this year in March, April and May 2014 and that is a sign of just a going to the negotiations room and not to war. I know that this is not your strongest point, but this year you have to learn to act with patience, with tact and with a lot of self control regarding others. This is not a good time to go to court or to start or end anything legal. Create a pleasant environment and allow yourself to have a peaceful work environment. Another astrological event is going to be the Cardinal Grand Cross and now some relations will end on not such a friendly matter. Just keep things under control and try not being emotionally angry.

As I said, decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory in a year like this one. That goes for the major changes this year. These are given by the 4 eclipses that we have in our solar chart. Eclipses in 2014 for you will mean changing the way you see relations especially at work and as I said diplomacy is the word for you and a very big change within you. As I put my advice for the Year of the Green Wood Horse: Take a leap of faith, Have a breakthrough and fly and that works perfect with you. You have been through some trouble in the past years and that was financially or you just had to invest a lot of money in your house or your marriage in some form. Now, you have to change for the better and let good things come to you.

Another planet that is helping you with this change is Uranus in Aries. You are embracing change, pushing yourself beyond your normal limits and taking a few personal risks. With the power of Uranus by your side, you will amaze everybody and let them know that you are much stronger than they think you are.

Jupiter is the planet of good luck, the planet that brings expansion, blessings, optimism and prosperity. Jupiter will help you with your change. At the start of the year, the planet will help you make the final touches to your home environment. You are preparing for something new in your life. In July, Jupiter will change the astrological placement and will enter a lengthy period where children, fun and creativity will be key words. Now, this is going to be your kind of days! You can be the best lover, the best partner and the best father or mother. Yes, you read this in a correct manner. At this time you can plan or have a baby and old planet Jupiter will be here to bring good luck with these plans. You will have fun and be very happy. You deserve it, my dear Aries!

Saturn has entered Scorpio on the 5th of October 2012 and will stay there till the 17th of September 2015. Saturn is the great planet of discipline, of hard work and patience; the same theme as last year is going to have impact in 2014 for you: inheritances, other people’s money in general and the spouse’s money.

Have a great year, dear Aries!

Scorpio Woman – Margaret Thatcher

1

Credit @ Forbes

The economic success of the Western world is a product of its moral philosophy and practice. The economic results are better because the moral philosophy is superior. It is superior because it starts with the individual, with his uniqueness, his responsibility, and his capacity to choose….Choice is the essence of ethics: if there were no choice, there would be no ethics, no good, no evil; good and evil have meaning only insofar as man is free to choose.” Margaret Thatcher, 1977

I believe that the great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. This is about Margaret Thatcher: the longest-serving (1979–1990) Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of the 20th century and the only woman ever to have held the post.

A short history, when she came into office the United Kingdom was not so powerful as today:

–          Most of the people were employed by the state

–          There were a lor of strikes

–          The union’s leaders were very powerful and corruption was flourishing

–          Youngsters were leaving the country and going in the USA to find better work conditions and better economy

She changed all that:

–          She freed up markets to increase national wealth

–          She cut almost all social care coming from the state

–          She ended strikes

–          She ended the powerful leadership of the unions

She turned it all into “A free economic system” which “not only guarantees the freedom of each individual citizen, it is the surest way to increase the prosperity of the nation as a whole.”

2

Where she found all that strength?

Born a Libra, but with another dominant Sign: Scorpio! She was a Rising Scorpio and born with a Saturn in Scorpio. Scorpio as a dominant Sign means that you are a strong and astute person, complicated and passionate, sometimes destructive and intolerant, but strong-willed, tough and daring.

So many qualities and dangers combined in one person! And that was Margaret Thatcher!

Retro Saturn(Feb – Jul) – Slow Down, Master!

We had Saturn in Libra for almost 2 years now and that affected all kinds of relationships, like business or personal ones. Libra is the planet of relationships and when a planet like Saturn is visiting; it becomes a little harder to form or to stay in a relationship.

Saturn has entered Scorpio on the 5th of October 2012 and will stay there till the 17th of September 2015. Violent crime will increase and that will only lead to stricter gun controls. Legislation will change and it will be much stricter. Mental health issues will enhance. Also, we may find violent anger and rebelliousness amongst the teenagers.

Now, Saturn in Scorpio is retrograde on February 18 until July 8. Retrograde motion is when it APPEARS as though a planet is actually moving in a backward motion due to the relation of the planet to the earth in its particular position at a certain point in time. The Sun is casting a shadow on Saturn making it appear as though it has slowed down to the point of moving backward. You can read below about how this retrograde period influences you by Sun Sign: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo,Virgo,Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn,Aquarius, Pisces

Aries:

Slow down on money issues and sex and intimacy. Expect no major changes till July and just enjoy some moments of peace. Saturn doesn’t have the power to teach you anything right now. He is generally slow and now in retrograde motion means that things can stay just the way they are. It’s not a very good period to think and organize your resources. Look after your money. It is best to come back to your bank accounts or your loans to see if you can better manage money there. When it comes to money, innocence is never bliss. Stick to projects you are working on now, rather than thinking about changing anything in your life.

Taurus:

Saturn is in the sector that has to do with marriage, other people, and business partners, someone that can take you to court and file a lawsuit. At this time, try to settle, don’t go to trial. Just hold on and do not get married as this will not be a very healthy and good marriage. Same thing can happen in a business alliance. Don’t start a new business venture at this time as it’s sure not going to be a very profitable one with Master Saturn going backwards. The business partner will ask for more and more appreciation from your part. Attention he may not need it.

Gemini:

Saturn is now in the house of work, employees, co-workers, everyday chores and daily routine, also diet, attitude towards food. I don’t have good news here as you probably need to hire new people and you don’t find them, you need a lot of help and nobody seems to listen to you. You may have this health problem that does not go away and you don’t know what to do. Don’t try hard as Saturn is here to make everything go as slow as possible. Even if you eat right, sleep right, change your habits for a healthier and better life this will not mean better health.

Cancer:

Saturn is the house of creativity which allows you to be recognized as successful; it is the house of the inner child, hobbies, play, recreation and financial speculation; also the area of love and romance. I suggest no speculation and try not to be creative because you will find yourself in a trap. With Saturn in Scorpio at its full power, direct you were very innovative, but now nothing seems to fit. Your love life will stagnate and love will not be getting serious. You are probably having a baby and this is a very good to settle down for a moment and enjoy this period of your life. No new responsibilities will come your way and everything will just freeze for a moment.

Leo:

Property concern, real estate, domestic issues, family in general is the main focus at this Saturn cycle. This is the time for emotional stability that we all search for, and this is the house of foundation and why we are able to cope with everyday stress. Slow down now and do not prospect the market for a new house, do not prepare a loan for a house or buy a house. Stay away from renovation projects now. No hard work is required and you can just enjoy some moments of rest as the real fun starts in July when Saturn goes direct again.

Virgo:

You will have Saturn in a house that you like, that is the house of relatives, neighbors, community and city life. We also find here short trips and reading, networking, small scale advertising and any form of communication. Rest, do not advertize and stay away as much as you can from short trips. This is just a time to end something, move, go away from the city and stay in a quiet place till July. In July Saturn will turn direct and the fun will begin again. Saturn retro will put all the writing tasks in a desk far, far away from you. If you work in marketing or related services, you felt as if you know and feel the market. This is not the case anymore. Oh, and do not give any speech at this time.

Libra:

Saturn is for you Libra is the house of money, what you have in a material sense, money you earn, debt, possessions, the value system and personal feeling of self worth. This stage in your life has to be a very practical one. Money will come slow, but steady and you will learn more about how to handle resources. With Saturn in Retro motion, things will just stop for a moment. You will be at peace with yourself and money may be held up that you anticipated receiving, and it may not come until after Saturn goes direct July 8. To deal with this, you may have to build a financial contingency plan to help you bridge those months. If you are employed, you may find that it’s harder to get a raise and probably the company were you work is not at its highest either. Don’t expect much right now and just keep calm and wait for better days.

Scorpio:

The time has come for the most important zodiac sign, as Saturn is transiting Scorpio itself. That means we are in the 1st house, the house of identity, the house of the ascendant and the most important house of them all. We have here the first impression, the self image, the outlook on life, what motivates you, what drives you. Saturn is here to teach a lesson, a lesson of maturity and responsibility. With this retro motion, you will finally have some peace for yourself. You probably have some goals now in your life and Saturn makes you follow them thoroughly, but now it’s time to let go for a moment and enjoy other things. Relax, book a short vacation, prepare your soul for July when Saturn will turn direct. Don’t sign contracts at this time and don’t change things.

Sagittarius:

Saturn is highlighting anything that is hidden from the outside view of the world. The house visions some loss of clarity, self indulgent habits, addictive substances and escape from reality. This house is also the house of spiritual inspiration, enlightenment. From October, Saturn helped you work behind closed doors, write, create and dream with your eyes open. Now, Saturn is at its best here as it offers you relaxation and rest. When in retro motion, it means you have to get up and sum up. Think about what happened behind the scenes till now. We all know you are preparing something. You have to realize what is worth. Saturn will make you end everything that is not necessary and hold on to what is the most important thing. At this time, try to analyze and find out what you need to end and what you have to hold on to.

Capricorn:

Saturn is your guardian. It is now in the house of friendships, of groups, of associations. Our hopes and dreams are another element of this house. Humanitarian causes, clubs, social organizations, all kinds of large groups of people with an important influence in the world. Saturn is retrograde and that means all your big and beautiful plans must stop. Don’t worry, this is a way Universe tells us we need our share of break. Stay inside for a while and just enjoy a good book or an Oscar movie. I know you want to push forward, but this is not the time to do that. Create a safe environment t for yourself and forget about all these friends that always ask for help. They will be able to live without you just a little. Relax, slow down and enjoy this time because things will go back to normal in July.

Aquarius:

For me, Saturn, is transiting the career house, the reputation, honors, achievement and authority. In this placement Saturn will make you work hard, great responsibility will come and Saturn will teach you how to handle such great responsibility. This period started in October and it means a lot of hard work for all of us Aquarius. Saturn is now retrograde and that means we should slow down and see if we are going in the right direction with all these projects going on. See if we can handle the pressure and the stress that is involved. This period is a very good one because It makes us think a lot about what we really want to achieve in life and if that something is really worth it. This is also about big delays and about waiting time. You have to be patient till July when things will go on to be just the way you left them in February.

Pisces:

Saturn is affecting you in the house of improvement on every aspect of your life, higher learning and continuing education. What is more is that we have here the belief system, your ideas about the world. Long travels and foreign places and people come your way with this transit. You have probably started something new in your life, something big, or better said something that is growing day by day. This is the preparation stage and you will be at your best with this project in about 3 years to come (it was supposed to happen in late October 2012). Right now, you must see that this is a good thing, analyze, see what you need to change to make it work. Saturn is not helping at all so don’t try to change something, just see where you are in the process. Also, try to relax and see things from a bigger perspective.

Saturn Return

I would like to write today about a topic that I have fallen in love with some years ago. I started reading and learning about Saturn, his transit, how it affects us, why and how I can turn this strong energy to suit me.

This is the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Named after the Roman god Saturn, its astronomical symbol (♄) represents the god’s sickle. Saturn has been always associated with the Law and is considered the Father of the zodiac. Saturn brings isolation, sadness, skepticism and stalling. Saturn’s color is black. Saturn is considered cold (slow) and dry (separate). What I love about Saturn is that he puts us to hard work. Saturn is leading some kind of insight revolution when it comes to the way we look at work. Saturn does not make things simple. He makes them harder and harder. Used appropriately, Saturn represents the energies of wisdom, patience, maturity, responsibility. He will test our limits and the way we see our limits. We all have to take better care of ourselves when it comes to Saturn. It is masculine energy and rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, and the Tenth and Eleventh Houses. As you know, I am a proud Aquarius and it is part of Saturn being one of my favorite planets.

It takes Saturn 28-30 years to complete and it is said that we have had a complete cycle of learning. Astrological speaking, it is considered that you are finally mature when Saturn Returns. That is why we are supposed to be at our best when Saturn returns. The Saturn return begins when Saturn moves back into the same sign that it was in when you were born, and it ends when Saturn leaves that sign. It’s very important to find out where was Saturn at the moment of our birth. A simple birth chart calculator will tell you that. See http://www.astro.com/ if you like to find out.

We all have our Saturn returns sometime around the ages of 27-30, it is the unique position that Saturn holds in our birth charts. Saturn return, is a turning point, a transition point in life. Some people make the biggest changes in their lives: important career shifts, starting a new business, start writing that very important book, script, get married for those who thought that was never possible.
