How to Treat your Aquaruis

Aquarians are a slippery lot. A fixed Air sign, it may seem that your water-bearing friend is always on a crusade or a mission. Well he is! When the Aquarian gets an idea in his head - there's no way of getting it out unless you come up with a better one. The Aquarian gets involved in a project, then in the wink of an eye he's off to start another. And every project has new, pressing importance.

So why are Aquarians slippery? Because the moment that Uranian lightning bolt strikes your ingenious friend, she will slip right out of your hands! Your Aquarian has the potential to save the planet, convert all her friends to a new religion, or take off on a dangerous adventure of discovery. And danger doesn't get in her way!

Your Aquarius friend or lover needs the freedom to follow inspiration, ideas and dreams. He thrives on communication and travel, excitement and changes, science and technology, the strange and extraordinary. Aquarius lives and breathes for new experiences. They help him to form his very solid opinions on life. You show your friendship best when you give him every opportunity to expand his mind to the fullest.

Also, your Aquarian makes friends wherever she goes, and each one is special in her heart. Understand that her openness is not a threat to you. Give her the freedom to make new and fascinating connections! Better yet, be a part of the adventure....

Feed your Aquarian with respect, friendship, unusual outings, group activities, modern clothes and new ideas. Show interest in his musings. Let her know how bright and intelligent she is. Protect your Aquarian from harm. You will be rewarded with devotion, fun times and a little wildness!!

How to Treat your Pisces

The Pisces gives love constantly. The moment you withhold love from your Pisces, or treat your Pisces even a little bit harshly, you've opened the door to great sadness . Pisceans don't understand cruelty - even if it comes unwittingly from them. And the sensitive nature of Pisces makes him susceptible to great hurt. If you want to keep him around, be aware of your words and actions, and your Pisces' reaction to them. If he slinks off and hides, you know there's some serious heartache going on!

The Pisces needs compassion, water, creative or spiritual surroundings, an atmosphere of peace and calm, and ample opportunities to show off her many talents and ideas. Pisces loves to learn, and needs to be provided with information and ideas to help keep the creative juices flowing.

So be sure to provide your Pisces with imaginative, uplifting and beautiful entertainment. Don't overwhelm her with frightening images such as one might see in a violent movie. Pisces would rather not dwell on such things, and is much healthier when exposed to natural, peaceful or spiritual imagery.

Feed your Pisces with love and kindness, a sincere interest in his many dreams and ideals, respect for her creations, quiet, secluded outings, romantic conversation and your own spiritual idealism. Wake your sleepy, dreamy night-fish up in the morning, help your Pisces find the way in crowded places, guide him through confusing times and hold her hand while crossing the street. You will be rewarded with a sweet, gentle and unconditional love.

The Magician in the Tarot

~ Action ~
The Magician, the Juggler, Thoth, Mercury - this archetype, quite simply, makes things happen. The Magician doesn't merely act - he swiftly and decisively controls the elements and summons the forces of nature.

How often do we create on pure strength of will? When, and how are we able to integrate all the elements within us - the powers of fire (spirituality), air (intellect), water (emotion) and earth (practicality) and make magical changes happen? Nimble Mercury as Magician serves as an excellent example - he is aware of everything worldly - above, below, around and in-between. This is how we create from our will - through that pure awareness that allows us to harness our innate powers.

Another wonderful representative for the Magician is sweet, lovable Merlin. (I'm recalling the book - "The Once and Future King", as well as Disney's "the Sword in the Stone") Merlin had a unique design for young Arthur. He exposed little "Wart", who was innocent and unaware of his powers (a prerequisite for Magical purity!) to every possible viewpoint of the world... from the lowliest ant (earth), to a fish in the sea (water), to a bird in the sky (air), to a squirrel in the trees (fire). Merlin could even see into the future - he had already been there! He helped sweet Arthur (the Fool) to achieve the true understanding every ruler needs in order to properly serve his subjects.

The Magician knows that, without awareness of the affects of our actions on all people involved - on every level, we are weak, ineffective and may ultimately fail. We can achieve our greatest successes by claiming the Magician's power to integrate the elements, and act decisively - with full awareness of the consequences.

Every ruler needs her/his Merlin, Vizier, Attorney General, power behind the throne - to see a bit farther, beyond the veil of image and authority, and into the nitty-gritty of life. You may sometimes be Merlin, or from time to time have someone in your life who serves in that capacity. Your power may come and go. Ultimately, we all must take action and move forward in daily life - and so Magicians we must be.

Quite simply, the Magician is conscious initiative, and it is important to note that without the purity of heart that the Fool possesses, one may be doomed to use their power in less than conscious ways.

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 February 15th, 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 the sort of fanaticism that has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect also has the potential to inspire lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

From 8/22 to 3/4/2011, the North & South Nodes are on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, bringing a focus on relationships that can help us to achieve our goals, do our very best, and encourage us to honor our teachers, supporters and mentors. As we enter this phase, take time to remember ancestors and to acknowledge valued family members, yet to let go of those memories and belongings that no longer serve us. Reach out with enthusiasm for new opportunities that may present themselves!

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.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars
~ Future Forecast ~ for Love

Venus in Aquarius from 1/18 to 2/11 is wild and free - perhaps uncontrollable. There may be clashes between the sexes as they go head to head over any number of issues, but new friendships and new ideas are likely to spring up, and as long as one puts responsibilities first, all should be well.

With Mars in Leo from 10/17/09 to 6/17/2010 (!!!) - LONG retrograde from 12/20/09 to 3/10/2010!, males will want to really shine, and egos may seem especially large - but certainly family matters will take on increased importance, as well as the desire to maintain a spotless reputation. To make the most of Mars in Leo, try to keep it fun and playful, and leave the stress behind .

Venus in Pisces from 2/12 to 3/7 is more inclined bend to the needs of other, and find ways to maintain peace and harmony. While she's busy dreaming of a better world, take time to treat her to a little special time for herself.

Future Forecast for Love

During the first week in February, Venus octiles and Jupiter sextiles Pluto, while Venus/Chiron/Neptune/Jupiter are conjunct in Aquarius/Pisces and opposing Mars, forcing us to confront or face hostile or aggressive energy with compassion, understanding and brotherhood, or find ways to change the scenery. Big dreams can only come true with big action, and a little risk, but with Mars in retrograde, the time for real action may be delayed.

The second week, there is a Mars - Jupiter/Pluto yod, that may help bring into focus the larger forces at work in our world, and help us to realize long-term goals by steadily building our alliances. True power comes from a healthy balance of energies. This is a good time to "fill in the blanks"... find what is lacking, and create a solid team.

During the third week, Venus quintiles Mars, and the long Neptune/Pluto septile is exact again - this time with Venus, Jupiter and Chiron bolstering Neptune (see outer planet article below). With this highly idealistic, healing, loving energy in play, healthy relationships are likely to bloom, while outworn relationships may end abruptly. In any case, the desire to take action on gut feelings, spiritual values and moral convictions may be irresistible.

During the 4th week, there are biquintile aspects involving Venus/Jupiter/Chiron, Pluto, Mars and Saturn. Venus sextiles the North Node.. People may seem anxious to "fix" things, get them right - and we must trust that the right people will come along to help us do so, because they will. This is the time for patience, planning, and trusting in the process.

~ The Big Guys ~

Jupiter is in Pisces from 1/19/10 to 6/6/10, brings sensitivity, charity and healing energy when it comes to our outlook on culture, education, and social justice. This is a good time to become active in causes that benefit those less fortunate in the world, and in our communities.

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!
