Venus Retrograde July 2015

Venus Retrograde July 2015

The 2015 Venus retrograde runs from Jul 25 until Sep 6. This is usually lasts about forty days and forty nights. Forty is mentioned in the bible often, but most famously when Jesus was tempted by Satan in the wilderness for forty days. Could this be referring to the astrological phenomena of Venus retrograde? After all, Venus has two sides to her. She is the goddess of love and war according to the Babylonians. The word Lucifer (which is often confused with Satan) means light-bringer and refers to Venus in her morning star phase. The ancients...

Regulus

Regulus

Regal Regulus has the honor of being the closest star to the ecliptic and therefore closest to the red carpet path of the glorious Sun. Regulus is a triple 1.3 magnitude star that flashes white and ultramarine. It is found, naturally, in the brave heart of the constellation Leo the Lion. When I first wrote this post in early 2011, Regulus was still at 29º 59′ of Leo and I hadn’t considered the fact it was about to move into Virgo. Now I have rewritten this post bearing this move in mind and adding more examples of subjects with...

Algol

Algol

The head of Medusa from Greek mythology is represented by the infamous Algol fixed star at 26º Taurus. As part of constellation Perseus, Algol was regarded by the ancients as the most evil star in the heavens, but is its reputation warranted? If Algol was truly so malevolent then we would find it common in serial killers. We just don’t find it there, though it is present in some dictators. But it is true that Algol has a connection with death and pain. The medical term Algology means the study of pain. “You will not be able to ignore...

New Moon May 2015

The New Moon May 18 is at 26º Taurus and falls in Taurus Decan 3 Artistic, Alchemical & Life’s Troopers. Ruler: Saturn. Deity: Litai (Spirits of Prayer). This New Moon is a trooper, it gets knocked down, but it gets up again, and again and again. Irrepressible, irresistible and iridescent, it has the ability to bewitch. Sensual energy combined with Algol’s dark edge makes this Moon very alluring. It can be a dark knight (In twinkly armour) or a smoky-eyed gypsy with wild Medusa hair. We have an exorcist New Moon with both a Yod to Pluto...

Taurus Decan 1

Taurus Decan 1

Taurus decan 1 is ruled by Mercury and Venus. The Sun steam rolls through constellations Aries, Cassiopeia, the Triangle, the River and the Goldfish from April 20 – 30. These can be the raging bulls of Taurus, with less of the usual placid, laid-back energy tropical Taurus are known for. This is because to precession, this sector is totally dominated by the constellation of Aries which is why there are so many natural leaders here. At the same time this is the most Taurus decan of tropical Taurus as a whole under the triplicity system,...

Mercury Retrograde May 2015

Mercury Retrograde May 2015

Mercury goes retrograde May 18 2015 and the traditional advice is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain. So during the retrograde period it feels like Mercury has gone down into the underworld. In this...

Full Moon May 2015

The Full Moon on May 4 is at 13º Scorpio and falls in Scorpio Decan 2 Spiritual Accountants & Poker Faces. Rulers: Sun & Jupiter. Deity: Leto. This Full Moon may be experiencing a tumultuous emotional storm, but on surface, nothing, not a flicker, awesome… It’s all in the eyes though, the eyes burning into you with such ferocity, but what, what does this Moon want, it won’t tell you?!!! How infuriating. The Full Moon aligns with the fixed star Alphecca which is found in the Corona Borealis in the Northern Crown. It is another of those...

Aries Decan 3

Aries Decan 3

Aries Decan 3 are ruled by Venus and Jupiter. The Sun trail blazes through the constellations of the Sea Monster, River, Goldfish, King, Fishes and Princess from April 10 – 20. Although we are in a fire sign you can see we have quite a nautical battle on our hands as Venus was the goddess of love and war in ancient times. So what we end up with is a raging sea and a tsunami of flaming emotions. Aries decan 3 needs to make love not war, but if it can’t make love then the war can get very monstrous indeed. Despite the decan being ruled by two...

Aries Decan 2

Aries Decan 2

Aries decan 2 is ruled by the Sun and it firmly leads the way through this decan from March 31 to April 9. This is where Aries gets regal, for here we have the King, the Princess, a Sea Monster, a Dragon and a Star Measurer. These people follow no leaders and work best as their own boss or taking commandeering others. Aries decan 2 desperately wants to shine and be respected for rising to the top of their field. They can be seen as quite ruthless in pushing past those they perceive are holding them back from their ultimate throne, but that is...
