How to Treat your Aries

.


Your Aries is a highly intuitive, fiery, fast-acting, independent person who needs freedom above all. Aries people can stand alone in the world, and take pride in their ability to go through life without leaning on others. They always have a plan of action. If your Aries is not moving fast physically, you can be sure that mind is brimming with ideas. For Aries, the head is what it's all about, and Aries wants to put every idea into motion.

Let your Aries know how wonderful and special she/he is. In spite of that bold, confident appearance, or perhaps because of it, Aries can be somewhat the loner and not get support when needed. Also, your Aries may never feel truly complete or accomplished at anything because of the high standards he sets for himself. So, feed him with praise to boost his ego, and offer your loving encouragement to fan her passionate fire. Then, allow your Aries to follow those dreams, and offer helpful pointers and solutions wherever needed. You might feel invisible and unappreciated, but don't despair. Your Aries feels as if you are a part of her, and so may not understand the need to show gratitude. Just notice the way she glows inside when you give your advice, or the loving looks he gives you, and his determination to do even more. To Aries, this is the biggest thank you of all.

Most importantly, do everything possible to make your Aries feel unfettered. Like all fire signs, Aries can't stand to be led around or confined - unless as a means to an end. Let your Aries come up with the idea first, if possible. Otherwise, if you want your Aries to do something, ask gently!

Your Aries has a passionate heart and the best of intentions, yet is a very sensitive, instinctual and intuitive individual. Your thoughtful love will be rewarded with heroic efforts and a proud devotion to your needs.

How to Treat your Taurus

.


Taurus looks strong on the outside - sturdy and sensual, but is a truly needy individual. What your Taurus needs, day in and day out is love and nurturing - in the form of food and comfort, a peaceful or artistic atmosphere, and music.

The Taurus thrives on creature comforts and beauty. That is why money is considered to be important to Taureans. It is merely a means to an end! More money amounts to more cozy and luxurious surroundings for our soft hearted friend.

If you watch cows, you'll understand Taurus. Taurus looks tough and unapproachable, but has those soft, sweetly soothing eyes that you just have to love. Taurus eats, then mosies off to get comfortable and wait patiently for attention to come her way. Taurus does not want to work very hard, and will always find the most expedient way to get what she wants - even if it means turning into a hot-tempered bull.

The Taurus will fool you into believing that he's perfectly content, but watch out! He patiently waits for what he needs, then - assuming you are aware of his every desire - he blows up unexpectedly over some tiny oversight when patience suddenly runs out. That's why it's good to check in on your Taurus frequently to make sure he feels cared for in every way... no sense testing him to the limit!

Feed your Taurus with good food, romantic music, respectful pampering and your undying devotion and loyalty. Don't make sudden moves or changes, and don't disturb your Taureans peaceful or comfortable moments. Remind your Taurus that you need pampering too - Taurus just loves to spoil you! You will be rewarded with a passionate, romantic, sensuous and eternal love.

The Priest & Priestess in the Tarot

.


The Heirophant (Priest) in the Tarot is associated with Taurus.

~ Counselors ~
I like the way this deck portrays the Priest and Priestess from a distance - somewhat removed from others, objective and wise. These people, in their purest form, are to be treated with the utmost respect - they are humble servants of humanity. They represent our counselors, guides, friends and advisors. The aura of spirituality and even religious imagery that surrounds them is a deliberate attempt to conjure up a feeling of awe, respect and reverence.

When you ask a friend for advice, it is best to be honest about your concerns - confess all - and to truly listen to what your advisor has to say. That is assuming that this one is a worthy advisor! The Priest and Priestess must truly care about you.

There are some dangers inherent in these archetypes. The seeker may depend too much on the advisor's help, thus relinquishing his/her own power in the world. Or, the advisor may become too powerful or egotistical, and forget the needs of those who seek her/him out. Some advisors become very dogmatic and stern - lost in the details and particulars of ritual practice. Even a psychologist or spiritual advisor can become too pat and repetitive and lose site of the true objective. To listen, understand, and advise with wisdom and kindness, and to gently guide the seeker to find his/her own way is often a much more powerful way of counseling than merely prescribing a few prayers, practices or rituals. This is not to demean the power of ritual and prayer - they certainly have their place, and may quite possibly be the answer to everything!

Most of us, at some time or other, seek a Priestess or Priest to help guide us through powerful passages in our lives. The road to finding deeper meaning is much easier when we have a human, compassionate ear, an intermediary between the mundane and spiritual worlds, and perhaps some ritual to help keep our spirits alive. We all sometimes need the gentle, patient guidance and wisdom that an elder, spirit- guide, dear friend or counselor can provide.

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~

.


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto is in Capricorn now until 2024. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - but not before old structures are dismantled. Capricorn is about authority, success, achievement and social order. Pluto is about death and regeneration. Pluto asks us to dig deep and USE what is best in our world to create something much better. We need to avail ourselves of and share our brightest and most humanistic minds (Uranus in Pisces, Neptune in Aquarius!!), and not descend into blind destructiveness, greed or desperation.

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Aquarius/Leo axis ('til 8/21/09). This node placement brings positive connections based on love for humanity and the quest for social equality, along with healing in the area of self-love and love for loyalty's sake. This is a good time to examine our motives, use our egos wisely, and take the high road - or face karmic consequences!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Tour of the Planets!


Mewsings from Venus & Mars... April 2009

Venus is in Aries from 2/3 to 4/11 and 4/25 to 6/6. This Venus is impulsive and even aggressive in love, preferring to take charge. Adventure and risk- taking may be on the menu, and personal goals will become especially important.

Mars in Pisces from 3/15 to 4/22 is concerned with intangibles, and those deep feelings that well up and impel us to act. We may feel a need to fight for those who cannot, or perhaps a greater desire to withdraw from the cares of the world. This Mars is passionate and sensitive, and seeks true caring and compassion above all.

Venus is retro in late Pisces from 4/12-4/24, joining Mars/Uranus. Those who fight passionately for a cause are likely to fight all the harder, perhaps with surprising results!

On 4/23, Mars is in Aries until 5/31. We may see a lot of headstrong and even aggressive behavior - a good time to cultivate extra patience!

 
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE

During the first week in April, Venus squares Pluto, and Mars quintiles Pluto (4/3) and opposes Saturn (4/4). Jupiter/Pluto are octile and Venus/Jupiter as well- bringing a desire to work out differences on major issues, perhaps through abrupt endings or adjustments to long term goals. We may see more impulsive/compulsive behavior. This is a good time to give up what one does not really want or need. Focus on LOVE to avoid unnecessary conflict, and practice patience!

The second and third week have Mars conjunct Uranus (15th) followed by Venus joining Mars (21st). We might expect more inspired, ingenious and/or heroic (or perhaps just foolhardy) actions. The previous week could be a lead up to sudden relationship breakups, and/or hookups!

During the fourth week, Mars squares Pluto(26th) and Jupiter conjuncts Neptune, adding some outright tension, softened (or complicated) by extreme optimism or escapism. I recommend using this week to get creative, (but not too lost)

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter is in Aquarius til 1/18/2010. Lucky, expansive Jupiter will be crossing and re- crossing Chiron and Neptune during 2009, helping to bring us new ideas in spirituality, religious openness, tolerance and healing forms of justice.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and from authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's make conscious guardianship of our world the central focus for all we do!
