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.

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.

The Emperor and Empress in the Tarot


The Emperor in the Tarot is associated with Aries.

The Emperor and Empress
~ Benevolent Rulers ~
All decked out in their finest... ready to show the world who's boss - the Empress and Emperor may seem haughty, imposing and unapproachable. Just as parents who must give their children a sense of security, boundaries and safety - the ruling pair need to elicit a feeling of respect from those who rely on them - thus the air of authority, and the appearance that commands respect.

What they have to offer us is what we would expect from anyone with ultimate power over our surroundings - protection. The Empress nurtures and defends us like a doting mother or big sister, and the Emperor protects and defends, just as a father or big brother would.

Not only are they protectors, they also help determine our social. reality. The Empress is Queen- mother - she is fertility, creativity, and emotional power. The Emperor is King-father - he is virility, authority and earthly power. Together they create a home, a kingdom, a realm of influence. Without them we have chaos and anarchy.

Our personal perspectives regarding these archetypes is relative to our experience. To a child, her mother may be Empress, or perhaps her grandmother. To a student in class, the teacher may be Emperor or Empress. To the masses, a head of state serves as Emperor or Empress. To a worker, the boss may be absolute ruler. To a very spiritual/religious soul - the heavenly powers alone are capable of filling these shoes.

What sets them apart from mere Kings or Queens is the great, irrefutable power and authority they represent. They are more symbols to us than human beings. They command our respect and reverence - and their gifts to us are sustaining and powerful. The karmic implications of their existence in our lives is great. Anyone who we perceive in this light is more than a person to us - but representative of something greater.

To really get in touch with the energies of these archetypes, think back to when you were a small child looking up to your parents - when they had absolute control that you would not dream of challenging. Alternately - remember a revered teacher or other adult in your life. As an adult parent - you might consider your image as Emperor or Empress to your child. The Empress has the power to create life - and not just human life. Empress is ruler over the inner life - the emotions, the family traditions, and the structure of home and family. The Emperor maintains, supports and defends this structure. He represents the governing forces and protective devices we need to insulate our world from unwanted outside influences. As archetypes representing people, together, they are nurturers and protectors. As archetypes representing a personal reality - they are the ability or need to create and nurture (Empress) and to maintain order (Emperor).

In the grand scheme of things, they are our Cosmic Parents... and we can be those parents, and also experience them through others - in any number of situations and areas of our lives.

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... March 2009

Mars in Aquarius from 2/4 to 3/15 is unpredictable and wildly adventurous. Males may be more interested in spending time with friends than with family, and plans can change suddenly. Those who depend on divine inspiration are more likely to take real action on their plans.

Venus is in Aries from 2/3 to 4/11. This Venus is impulsive and even aggressive in love, preferring to take charge. She may easily lead Mars in Aquarius, as long as her ideas make perfect sense to him. Adventure and risk- taking may be on the menu, for at least a couple of weeks...

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.


Most planets still remain clustered in Aquarius and Pisces, bringing a focus on higher social and spiritual callings. Great ideas may be born, and details handled well . With Saturn in Virgo still opposing Uranus, clashes with authority are more likely, so it's best to practice respect and have patience!

During the first and second weeks in March, Venus sextiles Jupiter while Mars conjuncts Neptune, and Mars also aspects Saturn and Uranus - bringing a certain amount of risk- taking in relationships, perhaps a reaching out to like-minded individuals, and rifts growing between those who do not see eye-to-eye. Those who possess greater tolerance and understanding may lose patience with those who do not!

The third week has Mars octile Venus, exact on the 14th, Mars sextile Pluto (19th), and Jupiter octile Pluto, signaling a good time to make much needed changes - perhaps big ones.

During the fourth week, Venus in Aries octile Neptune (along w/ other aspects) adds a spark of energy to the desire to share dreams, aspirations, spirituality and creativity for the common good.

~ 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!
