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!

Lunar Eclipse in Aries: me versus us

The 18/19th of October 2013 brings a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Aries opposing the Sun in Libra. The ruler of this Full Moon is Mars, the planet of action and aggression. I saw that many people are wondering about it and decided to write an article. Well, this marks a beginning of Aries/Libra eclipses that will be with us till 2016, approximately 3 years from now. Aries is about “me” and Libra is about “us”, so the main focus will be independence and relationship.

As April Elliott Kent puts this into words that I loved: <<It’s not just about giving to others, but about letting them give to us as well.>>

I have been saying this in my other posts, the general rule of thumb avoid making decisions on a Lunar Eclipse. The main reason is you will not have all the information at hand, especially when soon Mercury, the planet of communication will turn retrograde in the sign of Scorpio (hidden meanings). So, open your eyes and search underneath the surface!

ariesAries

You are experiencing a heavy period and with this eclipse things are going to change big time for you! You have got to be prepared for it! As I was telling you, things are going to transform for you in a very personal way, the way you act, your physical appearance, your wishes and desires. You must find balance and just expect change to take over. This is a major lift of the spirit; you must learn to give and to appreciate real friendship, to offer and to receive. You are the first of the zodiac and that means power, leadership. Mars, your ruling planet will be in the work sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December, so a busy month ahead of November 2013. Just remember Mercury will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts, make a deal, and take extra care at financial initiatives that involve shared resources.

taurusTaurus

The eclipse marks a starting point on your health – you can start workout regimes, you can be aware of some illness that you now have to treat, make an appointment to the doctor, eat healthy and exercise; stay free with your spirit and you will benefit from these eclipses in Aries/ Libra. On October18/19 you should just open your eyes as something will be reveled or you can find very valuable information that was just under your eye. From Mars you got a lot of work to do, but still later Mars will be transiting the love life your life till the 7th of December and that means sex and happiness, childhood and easiness. Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts and take care of your partner. You started thinking about buying a house in August 2013, but please be patient as it is not a good time to sign anything. Just search for it and wait for the perfect time. That will be in December 2013 and January 2014.

Gemini

The eclipse marks a starting point of change and new things in your circle of friends, relations and connections. You have beengemini through a period when these things went slow and now, just wait for it as things are going to change. You are going to invest more time in playing with your kids or with children that you love to take care of. It’s a time for pleasure and fun and connections and new ways for you to spend your free time. Mars, the warrior will be in your home sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December. You will have a lot to do around the house and in a good way! Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts or buy important items at this time as Mercury will hide things away. When Mercury will go direct, things will get back to normal. Try to be as diplomatic as you can in your work environment, with your colleagues as this is where Mercury strikes this time.

cancer_sCancer

For you a marking point and a shift in your career is happening. This is the first eclipse in a series of Aries/Libra ones that will end in March 2016. Eclipses are here to generate change, to force you out of your comfort zone and to make you move forward. The eclipse on the 18/19 of October fell into your career sector and that is telling me that here things are about to take another shift. Note that for you Lunar Eclipses are very important because you are a Moon Child. You have to have your eyes open wide and consider adapting to change. Eclipses are stressful, but in the end they bring satisfaction. Note that they are connected, so what happens now it’s going to be related to the next eclipse on the 15th of April 2015. Mars, the planet of war is moving into your communication sector and that means a lot to talk about and a lot of action with words. Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts or buy important items at this time as Mercury will hide things away.

As I see it, your money status will change or the better and that will take little effort from your side. Note that eclipses are connected, so what happens now it’s going to be related to the next eclipse on the 15th of April 2015. Mars, the planet of war just entered your sign – that is very good news! Mars will bring work, project, action, power and a lot of force to handle it all. Remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10.

Luck is preparation meeting opportunity

triangle-clip-art-10

Grand Water Trine
Copyright (c) myLittleAstrology

We are now in July and with this holiday feeling I chose a quote and a title for this post from an Aquarius woman, Oprah Winfrey: “Luck is preparation meeting opportunity”. July has one of the most impressive skies in the year 2013 as it welcomes the Grand Water Trine. I will tell you more about this very soon.

First, a general view: on the 25th of June 2013, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and good fortune entered Cancer, the good old family sign; in the beginning of last year Neptune entered Pisces and on the 8th of July together with the New Moon in Cancer, our beloved Saturn turned direct in Scorpio.

Trines are planets supporting and taking care of each other. They are very good energies and can help us in many ways. Trines bring good luck and fortune to people who are born near one. So, if you have kids this time of the year, they will be born with a lot of good opportunities. As a matter of fact, one of my best friends is going to give birth to a baby girl and I am very happy to say that she will have luck by her side. Trines are accepting and forgiving. They allow us to understand others, ourselves, and situations. This one is a water sign trine which symbolizes emotion, intuition and sensitivity.

The Water Grand Trine happens on the 17th – 19th of July 2013:

–          Jupiter Trine Saturn

–          Jupiter Trine Neptune

–          Saturn Trine Neptune

Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo,Virgo,Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn,Aquarius, Pisces

Aries

ariesJupiter, the planet of luck is expanding your home and family sector; this is a very good time to buy a house, plan for one and prepare for a new coming member of the family. Opportunities to buy or sell real estate for financial gain may present themselves. You may move to a larger or more comfortable home. There could be a family reunionor other happy events that reconnect you to your roots. Your parents may help you financially or an inheritance is possible. Jupiter is expansion and good luck. We also have here the so called “Black Moon” and this is an element that can lead to some negative confrontations. It is more likely that the power of Jupiter will be bigger than this “Black Moon”.  This is a very good time to settle affairs in this field and to enjoy home environment. For you, the Grand Water Trine happening 17th – 19th of July 2013 and having a great energy this year will mean money, home protection, healing of the family; magic that is going to happen in the subconscious and will heal and protect. Neptune is there doing the magic, Jupiter will protect the home and Saturn will give you the extra money boost you need. Just remember that this means a long way to go.

Taurus

For you, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and good fortune, the planet of expansion just entered your communication sector and your learning and new skills. During this long-term, approximately year-long trend, neighbors or relatives could be especially helpful in taurusyour life. You are more likely to comprehend different situations and you are ready to say what’s on your mind with a clear, cut voice. People will listen and thus, all relations will go well. The benefit here is tacking new courses, learning something new that will prepare you for bigger chances of getting hired or of getting new clients. Some negative confrontations will come from the “Black Moon”, also in your communication sector; but be at ease as Jupiter is stronger. Saturn is in your area of long term marriage and going direct means a very good time for you to get married. Be aware that it is going to bring a lasting relation only if it’s not a new one that was formed this year. For you, the Grand Water Trine happening 17th – 19th of July 2013 and having a great energy this year will mean that a long term relationship will be formed with the help of very good friends; or a relationship is going to be healed by this positive energy coming from the trine. Communication and friends will favor a good string union in the end. One more thing here- this is a very good time to tie the knot, so if you did decide this; it’s going to be a great wedding!

Gemini

For you, Jupiter the planet of great chances and good luck has just lightened up the money sector. You will have a lot of things goinggemini on this period June 2013 to July 2014 and most of them will bring you money in some form. Jupiter here will make you be happier and more confident that you can make a living and can earn all the money you need. Your self-worth will be at its highest with this planet here. Take care that you also have the “Black Moon” here and that means that the more you earn money, the more you need or want to spend. These are times when everything will cost you money, so no good old savings for you.This is a good time to work with financial institutions, go for a raise, or apply for a loan. Try not to spend so much money, but do feel good! With this Grand Water Trine happening in July 2013 and having this great influence all year all the work is going to pay off. Some news will come concerning your career or you will just have a lot of work to do at the office. Saturn is in your day to day work and Neptune is in your reputation sector and they will help and benefit from each other. You have financial prospects and a great working future ahead.

Cancer

Well this is the STAR of the sky! You have now some great planets in Cancer: Jupiter,planet of good luck just entered Cancer, Mars, cancer_sthe energy is here, Mercury, the communicator is in Cancer and of course our Sun.  You have a lot going on: you shine, you are happy, things are finally coming your way and I know it was about time! The direction is pretty good and the Sun is shining although the hard time is not over yet as you have the “Black Moon” in your sign. The “Black Moon” is nothing real, just a confrontation of very negative happenings. I would advise not to worry as Jupiter is also here from the 25th of June 2013 and will be protecting you one year long. The Grand Water trine is exceptional beneficial to you as this will bring peace, harmony, supporting feelings and extra timing. This is very good if you want to have a baby and relations born under this configuration in the sky will be long lasting and will bring happiness. Children born now will be happy and will bring a lot of good news in the world. The Grand Water Trine is happening 17th – 19th of July 2013 and for you, Neptune will offer you vision, Saturn will offer stability and Jupiter will offer luck. This will mean a warm environment of support for your actions. Dreams will come true, friends will be there and love and romance will just make the picture almost dreamlike. You have this great chance to make your life happier.

Leo

For you dear Leo, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion will transit your subconscious, your hidden agenda, the deeper leomeaning in life. Charity, volunteering and helping others without expectation of reward will be the highlight during this cycle. For you, Jupiter travelled 12 years and now is just settling down and is asking you to give back to society in some form. Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter and more intuitive. All activities that are not done in the spotlight will be lightening up. You might be doing something there; you will not let this out in the open just yet. You are actually secretly preparing for the next year – July 2014 when the planet of good luck will mark your sign. This time of the year you feel good as Venus, the planet of love and money is in your Sun Sign. You need love, romance, sex and a lot of excitement. Any relation that is formed during this transit will mean light, joy and happiness. Venus will be here till the 16th of August 2013 and will take care of you. This Grand Water Trine will link other people’s money to your home, your real estate. This may mean this unusual confluence of planets may bring you the funds you need to move forward on an idea. Saturn is in your home environment sector and that brings a lot of good news here as it is now direct after a period of retrograde motion. Neptune will offer you vision and Saturn will offer stability.

Virgo

For you, Jupiter has just entered the friendship and networking house; from June 2013 to July 2014, this transit brings benefits and virgofresh energy to networking activities, to large group of friends, to great organizations. Your friends will give you much support and will see through that everything will turn out to be OK in the end. Jupiter is by your side when it comes to dreaming with your eyes open, planning a better future for you and for your family. Others especially value your advice and often turn to you for help. You could become more active with friends and large groups of people. You may just change the course of some organizations if you are in a key position.

Jupiter likes expansion and new horizons, life and travel, he is the archer and the good love charm, but Jupiter is not into working all day long. He is actually going to make work more fun good for most of us. A good time to find a new job, but this is not the best time to build a career. Find something that you like and have fun while doing it. Jupiter is not going to help you build on the long term here, he is just going to make your life easier and healthier. Start a new regime, set some workout goals, try to act different and go to the gym. Jupiter entered this area of our lives on the 25th of June 2013 and will be here till July 2014. During this time, you can change for the better: work and health. I am really really trying to change this and I will probably let you know if Jupiter helped me in any way. I am telling you I need a bit of help when it comes to healthy eating, diet and workout. I am an Aquarius, so I would rather invent something else than go to the gym, for example. Saturn is direct also in the area of our fame and reputation, so expect some hard times and some great results if you are in for the hard work. There will be grand water trine in the sky of great importance happening all month, but will peak on the shining days, July 17-19.

This post is going to be about the Taurus New Moon of the year 2013 on the 9/10th of May. Together with the New Moon we also have the Solar Eclipse of the year. Put together some new plans – especially if those plans relate to your house, your family, you real estate, your business and be very careful with the way you plan your bank account. This is the best time to settle accounts with somebody – where money is concerned! This solar eclipse as all the solar eclipses marks a start, a positive start to prove to the world that we are better and can become better. This is the time where we can enjoy the simple pleasures in life- a good meal, friends coming over and physical pleasures. I know it’s rather late to talk about it, but this is an important post that must be linked with the eclipses these year.

The sky is magic- we have Sun and Moon in Taurus and making a great couple with Mars and Mercury. This is your time to shine, dear Taurus. Try to take as much advantage as you can from this great alignment in the sky.

Please read below what is happening with you at this Solar Eclipse for your Sun Sign. If you know your Rising Sun you can also read it: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo,Virgo,Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn,Aquarius, Pisces

 

Aries

ariesThis solar eclipse of the year will have a major impact on you where money is concerned. Note that this is the topic of the year for you like it or not. You will be influenced with money from you lover, money that he/she makes, money that he/she must give away, lots of things to buy or you just have this major event and you must spend a lot of money. This Taurus eclipse is in the money you make – now you must think about ideas of making more money. This is the time to do it! This is the time to have a plan for more money in your life. This is very important for you as you are not as good as money management if you are a true Aries. You must do something that you are good at: cook, paint, draw, write, buy, sell! Just do something that will make you earn more money. Remember this is a Taurus Eclipse, so do something as close to earth as you can. What I mean is that you must be doing something real, as real as you can! Oh, and one other thing: this can be a time when you have to let go of some things and just discover or learn some new abilities, new ways to make money!

 

Taurus

Well, my darling this is your New Moon of the Year 2013 and your Solar Eclipse of the Year 2013! Now this is a Time to make a change – try to have everything under the taurusmicroscope, your hopes, what you want from life, what you need, where you want to be in the next 3 years, how your life should look like. This Eclipse is telling you to look at your past and to understand it as the South Node of the Moon is still in Taurus. For you the quote: “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.” (A. Einstein) is the best thing you can write on your agenda. You should start fresh, start new things, get rid of all the bad habits you once had and be better! This is a great time, but it’s not going to make you feel as good as you will draw a line in your life and wonder if where you are now is where you want to be. I sense you have a long way to go as these eclipses are just getting started – so change is going to come to you, but you should drive it! Be a leader and not a follower! You have Mars by your side, so you are determined and ready for action! Hope this is good news, dear Taurus!

 

Gemini

I am talking here about a New Moon in Taurus and a Solar Eclipse in Taurus, but for you my dear Gemini is not so much as a new beginning, it’s more of a soul search. You are searching for a way to make peace with yourself; togemini be aware of spirituality in the world, to let go of all the things that were making you frustrated and sad. You are searching for higher meaning in everything that happens to you now. You are probably going to relax, recharge, take a long vacation. Try to have long walks on the beach or in the park. Try to be a little closer to nature. Do something for others – help them, try to understand other people. You will not be very fond of this time as everything is related to real life and you are more of an airy kind of person. You still have the planet of luck (Jupiter is in Gemini) by your side; so that will make you happy.

 

Cancer

We have a Solar Eclipse and a New Moon – both in Taurus! Taurus is an Earth Sign and you are a Water Sign. Earth and Water go very well together and so, although it’s a rather hard time; you’ll be good. To start new and fresh, cancer_syou must end something. For you, it’s about friendships- probably you have too many friends and these are not as true as you need that to be. Or you just need more people around you. Try to think about the people that you love and that you share many things with; think about how much these people are really there for you; how much you mean to them. I am not saying this is going to happen to every Cancer, but try to consider the possibility that some relations will end; only to leave space for new, fresh ones. This Eclipse may also mean new connections, new friends, new events to go to and be social. Welcome people into your life as this is a very good time to do so!

 

Leo

“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward; they may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.” (Goethe).
I have said that in my previous posts – the love of my life is Leo and believe me I always have this thing when I write these words about you Leos. What can I say – it’s not an easy time as we have all these planets in Taurus. leoTaurus is the ruler of your career house, so the Solar Eclipse and the New Moon are all about your way in the world, your CV, your light shining above, this is the spot in the sky where you shine. Now, we have all the planets there!  For most Leos this will mean a job interview, a CV, a new business opportunity, a step up in the career, preparing for a step up in the career. This is the best time if you want to change jobs, apply for as many as you want and feel the need to start something new, try something new. Make plans for a new business; think about ways you can really be at your full potential. What can happen now as we have the Sun in Taurus (earth, responsibility, security): you may feel like something is not OK with your current situation, you are probably in need of more money than usual; some responsibilities are coming your way. This eclipse is influencing everybody 6 months from now, so stay focused when it comes to career opportunities. Make a name for yourself Leo as this is who you are.

 

Virgo

virgoFor you dear Virgos, this New Moon in Taurus and Solar Eclipse in Taurus means a lot of practical work, just the way you want this! You are a brother sign to Taurus and that makes you really comfy with all these planets here! You must think now at your education, what you have been learning, it’s a very good time for exams, important exams (those that change your life). If you started working on a thesis or you are just preparing your PhD, or you just want to start to learn something new in a school or University – this is the time to do it. This aspect has also good vibes for all the people that work with the Law – lawyers, judges or if you are a Virgo who has this major lawsuit – it’s a time to start one and win it! It’s also a very good time if you are a writer – your book will be published and that will make you really happy. This Eclipse is also about getting rid of the past; forget about everything you have been learning or doing – start fresh!

 

Libra

For you my dear Libra, this New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Taurus will not make you feel very good as you are a sign of balance and clarity! This Eclipse wants you to think about your past and let it go! Be very true to yourselfLibra and relate to stable, practical things as we are in the Taurus Season still. What kind of past I am talking about? The one with problems related to shared income and intimacy, your relationship. New intimate liaisons or arrangements surrounding support from others may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal in everything related to shared money. Oh, and these days you may be dealing with an inheritance! That’s some good news! Try to find a way to administrate it in a correct manner just to play it safe. You or your lover may find new ways to increase your income or how you manage money. That will be a good thing as this is year is related to money in all forms.

 

Scorpio

“You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
scorpioDear Scorpio please let me know if you are still alive. For you, it’s been a hectic April and a crazy start of May as the Lunar Eclipse on the 25th of April was in your Sign and you could feel it days after it had gone. This Solar Eclipse in Taurus, your opposite Sign will mean committed relationships. You also had Solar Eclipse in November 2012 and that was the first big one for you and it was all about YOU. Now, it’s all about the PARTNER. You will give up any old relationship that had been with you for a while and you will say hello to a new, fresh one. You are going to take the first step to a new, braver, practical, serious, committed relationship and this is because we are still in this serious and determined Taurus Season. Oh, and take as a marriage is on its way? I don’t know about that, but if you are in a relationship and you love the girl or the boy, this is a very good time to propose! This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of the need for someone significant to lean on or to rely on.

 

Sagittarius

Well, my dear Sagittarius, for you this New Moon in Taurus and Solar Eclipse in Taurus will make you think about your daily life, daily chores, and health in general. Taurus is a practical, determined sign that loves security.Sagittarius Now, this eclipse will mark an ending and a letting go of old habits, eating junk food. A sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your daily activities, health routines and attention to practical matters will come to fruition. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of the daily routines that keep you organized and of your own health. Start new and prepare to be very productive the set of weeks ahead. Mars is here and that will make you work as happy as ever rediscovering your work and everybody will just try to keep up with you!

 

Capricorn

caprkornWe all know that you are the business type of man/woman and that you generally don’t want and do not have children of you own. This is just if you are a true Capricorn. Now, with the Sun in Taurus, Solar Eclipse in Taurus and New Moon in Taurus it might just be the case for you to think about children and about romance and happy times. You have been working a lot and you have been under a lot of stress, but now this Solar Eclipse is telling you – wait, smell the roses, find a mate and just feel good about life and about yourself.  Do you want a baby? Conception could be very successful, thanks to a new moon solar eclipse in one of the most fertile sign, Taurus. Oh, and I almost forgot: have kids, discover your children (if you have some), spend more time with them, love them and be part of their lives. This will be a lovely time for you!

 

Aquarius

As you probably know, I am Aquarius and all this Taurus energy is making me a little uncomfortable. I am an Air Sign and my mind and spirit are up, up in the Air. With all this practical, money related, security and aquariusdetermination, I am a little of the shore. The New Moon and the Solar Eclipse marks for us a relation with family, home, roots, die Heimat if you know German. A new set-up in an existing home or a new home altogether may be part of the picture in the coming months. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your need for a solid foundation; where we stand firm, where we live with our soul, what makes us go on. I am very close to my family, but I believe that has to do with my Rising Sign – Cancer and not my Sun Sign. You might buy or sell property now, or move, renovate, or refresh the look of your home. You will probably be in contact with family and help them in any way you can.

 

Pisces

“A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind.”
piscesThe Solar Eclipse in Taurus marks a new beginning for you and for all of us. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. Try to look very careful around you and see what is holding you back. Be prepared to get rid of it. A new moon, a new start, a new way – interacting with others, finding your place in the world, communicating better, writing, teaching, finding the perfect method for you to tell the world who you are and what you do! This is a phase in which you have an increased awareness of your environment. Mars will be close to this new moon eclipse in Taurus, so this is evidence of just how busy you will be, and how determined you will be to do a good job on your project. With such emphasis on Taurus, a sign associated with sensual beauty, you may be working with beautiful artwork, music, film or photography, or in the beauty area, with perfume, music, gourmet foods, or fine wines. Discover more and more things that will let you shine and let the world know. A very good time to start a new business if this is related to any of the areas mentioned before.

Thank you for reading!

If Europe were a zodiac sign

17940488_sThis will be a short post – a post dedicated to the birth of the European Union and its Sun Sign.

If Europe were a zodiac sign…I think that zodiac sign would be Taurus. The EU is said to be born on the 9th of May when the Sun was in Taurus and when The Schuman Declaration was presented by French foreign minister Robert Schuman.

The Schuman Declaration proposed the creation of a European Coal and Steel Community, whose members would pool coal and steel production. The argument: economic solidarity between states and prevention on another such terrible war as World War II. In 1950 the war was in his final days – the nations of Europe were still struggling to overcome the devastation brought by World War II. What Robert Shuman wanted was total control on the Gun Industry in the states through a well written international treaty. The idea that he presented was accepted by France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Robert Schuman

Robert Schuman

Shuman wanted peace above all- he was a Cancer born on the 29th of June. He was twice Prime Minister of France, he was the one building post-war European and trans-Atlantic institutions. He is regarded as one of the founders of our “Taurean” European Union. Schuman had proven to be a true Cancer: protective, peace loving and always needing a secure environment. Cancer sign is also very good at procedures, instruments, way of doing the right thing. He thought that merging of economic interests would help raise standards of living and secure the climate just like a Cancer would. He was not a thinker, but a doer, an action guy. He had done the step towards a more united Europe. Oh, and remember that Cancer and Taurus are really compatible.

So how come I think that the European Union is Taurus? Well, the EU is based on the rule of law and this means that every action taken, any decision is founded on treaties. These treaties have been approved democratically by all EU member countries. Taurus is a sign of the Law and will not go beyond it. Taureans are slow and so is EU with having all these rules and regulation.

Taureans are good with money. I have read that the annual budget of the EU is €142 billion –is that a lot of money? Well,it means only 1% of the wealth generated by the EU’s member countries every year. Most of them are invested in improving the life of the EU communities and citizens.

Taureans are stubborn and because of this, they are prone to making enemies. Through the political spectrum, a body of criticism of the European Union and opposition to the process of political European integration exists: the Euroscepticism.

Please note that this entire post is only an allegory inpired by the European Union.
