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 »
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 »
Mystics have studied Astrology for thousands of years and it is still very popular to this day, because it can be used to reveal many things in your life. The natal chart is your Astrological birth chart, which is used to reveal things about the energetic influences that may have an impact on your entire life.
The natal chart represents the exact order of the planets and stars at the time of your birth. The energy surrounding your birth has an impact on personality, as well as predicting future events in your life. It can be a helpful tool to use in order to navigate through life more easily, and have a better understanding of how to live your life to the fullest. Read the rest of this entry »
A child born February 19th to March 20th is a Pisces. They are daydreamers. This helps them become the actors, writers, poets and innovators of the world. It is good to help your child balance this by helping them to stay in reality and remain grounded.
Pisces children are extremely intuitive, often psychic. Teach your Piscean to trust their intuition, but also to filter what they tell others. Not all visions should be shared.
They also tend to be empaths. Like most empaths, they may feel tired, sad or overwhelmed and may not know why. They may have been picking up others emotions. Teaching coping methods for these times is essential. We don’t want our Pisces children not to be empathic, as that is all of our natural state, but we don’t want them to be energy sponges, carrying around other people’s trauma. For this reason, they should be watched for depression and encouraged to talk about their feelings frequently, and in great detail. Read the rest of this entry »
Most people know their Astrological sign, or Sun sign. Most also know their birth order in the family: oldest, middle child, or youngest. And a few people may even know their Numerological life number, which is the sum of the digits in one’s birth date and determines the major themes of an individual’s life. But what many people don’t know is that these influences must be taken into account as a whole!
Each of these aspects tell a unique story, since no two individuals are alike. We’ll use the example of Amy, a Gemini Sun sign born on June 15, 1978, to demonstrate this concept of mixed birth patterns. Gemini, the Twins, are usually outgoing types who excel at communication and strive to make many friends. The Sun sign, the foremost influence in one’s chart, forms the basis of our personality. What really gets interesting is what lies beyond the basic, ‘garden-variety’ Astrological readings found on a typical horoscopes website or newspaper column. Read the rest of this entry »
