February always reminds me of love. It is the month during which we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and with every leap year it is also creates the opportunity for women to ask men out on a date, or to propose marriage. In February, the promise of Spring and new life is also in the air.
The energy of Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, and planetary ruler of both Libra and Taurus, is deeply inherent in all of us. Her role in our life can be interpreted through our individual natal astrological charts. Venus rules what we value, and love. It is a feminine planet, and represents our caring, graciousness, and capacity for love and affection. It also shows what we value and the effect we have on others.
Venus has a different effect on men and women. We all hold small traces and traits of the opposite sex inside of us, and it is wise to seek balance and expression of those energies. Venus in a man’s chart is his feminine ideal. In a woman’s chart, Venus embodies her femininity. Read the rest of this entry »
I was born amid a snowstorm, in an age where there were no cell phones, nor color television. In fact, we only had a handful of channels on television, if you were lucky enough to own one. In those days vehicles were V-8 engines and did not have seatbelts. Life was so simple.
In the Summer we played outside, and in the Winter we played outside. If we played a game on a rainy day, it was a board game such as monopoly or checkers, or we colored and dreamed of what we wanted to be when we grew up. Most boys wanted to be a policeman, or a fireman. Those were not even an option if you were a girl. You could be a wife, a mother, a bookkeeper, a secretary or a teller at a bank. Options for women were very limited.
I don’t know how many times I was told I could not do something with the explanation, “Because you’re a girl!” This broke my spirit for a long, long time. I wanted to play baseball and hockey. “No, sorry, that’s for boys only. You can draw or paint, or cook.” Read the rest of this entry »
As an aficionado of all things metaphysical, from auras to a zebra jasper crystal, I have always found Chinese Astrology particularly fascinating. I’ve read any and everything I could lay my hands on and ultimately, I believe, I have come up with my own fundamental basic understanding of it.
I’m a simple woman and as a writer I have found the simple approach is best. Chinese Astrology is based on 12 different animals, and the traits of each species defines the characteristics of each Chinese Zodiac year. If you understand the animal, then you understand the Chinese astrological sign associated with it. You might say it is an easy key to understanding what may initially seem complicated.
According to Chinese Astrology we are entering the Year of the Dog this month. Associated with the element of Earth and the season of Autumn, the closest Western Astrology signs are Scorpio and Libra. Read the rest of this entry »
If you just think of them as two children living in the body of one, you will understand their changing interests and personalities. You will also understand why they have so much energy – because they have the energy of two people!
Gemini finds it difficult to make choices, because each side of them wants something different. This can make pinning them down very challenging.
They are thinkers. They run everything through their heads. They are articulate, eloquent and very smart, and they love the written word. They love to read and write. They may have a hard time staying focused on one thing, because their minds are so active, so encouraging them sit still and focus on one thing will help them in school. Keeping them mentally and physically stimulated will help them direct their energy into positive things. Read the rest of this entry »
In my previous post I mentioned some astrological points that are in all our charts, namely, Lilith. This concept in Astrology is named after the female demonic figure Lilith in Jewish mythology. There are so many dark stories and myths surrounding Lilith, and therefore some scary points in Astrology have been named after her. Her name evokes thoughts of the mysterious, malevolent, sinister, forbidden and catastrophic. The negative is certainly valid, and it is up to the native to act out these energies in an, if possible, positive way.
I also described a not-so-evil feature of Lilith – one that came to me through meditation. The positive energy I received was about survival. This dark goddess is not all bad. She shows us how to work through situations we can’t always describe to others. Read the rest of this entry »
A child born April 20th to May 20th, is a Taurus. Taurus children are very responsive to touch. They need a lot of physical connection and affection. Because they are very sensory, they may be sensitive to certain clothing and materials as well as water that is too hot or too cold. A garment tag rubbing their skin will drive them crazy!
Taurus is ruled by the five senses. They are very likely to put everything in their mouth, and to be thumb suckers, heavy nursers and big eaters.
They are also very stubborn! They are born under the sign of the bull, which means they’re sweet and quiet, until you try to force them into something they don’t want to do and they won’t budge. Read the rest of this entry »
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I always feel much more connected to subtle energies, elementals and spirits, as though they are like people we see in everyday life. The veil between the worlds thin as we approach the end of the natural year. Lately, I began feeling even more connected to Goddess energies than I usually am this time of the year.
I have also been doing some serious thinking on the mysterious Lilith Points that are in everyone’s Astrology charts. Lilith is described as the point in our Astrological charts that is all and everything that cannot be explained, but is known as “what is.” I found myself meditating on this puzzling description and the answer eventually came to me. It was not as sinister as I thought it would be, and yet it is scary to think about. Read the rest of this entry »
A child born March 21st to April 19th is an Aries. Aries children are smart and very physically strong and coordinated. They are usually very athletic. They may be very quick to walk and talk. Aries are also extremely enthusiastic about life and tend to be optimists.
They are known however to have a bit of a temper. It will help you to establish that you are the boss and not give into temper tantrums very early on in your Aries baby’s life. Keep your calm and exemplify a dignified way of expressing anger and frustration. They are also know to hold a grudge, so teaching forgiveness will also be of benefit.
They are extremely generous and tend to want to give their toys to other kids. However, they may also expect to get some of their friend’s toys in return! They are strong forces and can be demanding and bossy. If you teach them to use that power to accomplish rather than control, they can be anything they want. Read the rest of this entry »
