MoonCat's Astrology & Tarot - September 2008 











Dear MoonCat Visitor,

May you and your loved ones be protected from harm during this stormy season of the year, and for those who are just going back to school, may you find real meaning for your life within each new bit of knowledge gained!

I'd like to send support and love to my (amazing and wonderful!) son Peter, who has recently completed basic training for the Navy and is beginning his A training in Pensacola. May our Navy continue to be on the front-line of humanitarian efforts around the world, and may all our service men and women not only be safe, but be our messengers for peace, love and understanding!

Many Blessings!
Danielle Astrid Ricard

How to Treat your Virgo


Your Virgo is an Earth Angel, a swift, intelligent Mercury without wings, a dynamically aware work-force. She notices everything. He is hyper-awake.

Virgo, though unassuming, kind and shy, is one of the strongest signs in the Zodiac. This is intelligent earthiness - discerning practicality - a strong yet gentle kindness and nurturing born of sheer common sense. Your Virgo strives to be a model of perfection. She loves to please you! He is driven to impress you with his talent for making the most out of the best!

Mercury's other child, Gemini, is a much more lighthearted, air-born spirit. While Gemini is busy gathering knowledge, Virgo insists on action and wants to know what will be done with the information at hand. The question is always - "of what practical use is this?" A master at taking things apart and analyzing them - Virgo always finds room for improvement.

So how can you possibly impress one who sees and knows so much? How can you hide your imperfections? What will you do when YOU are the object of her keen observation? You must be a strong spirit to be with Virgo - both hard working and emotionally tough. You will be happiest with your Virgo if you are one who appreciates purity, discernment and a logical mind; and spurns the superfluous. Feed your Virgo with uncluttered surroundings, a practical, frugal budget and pure, beautiful speech. Make healthful foods a priority. Take the trash out often. Iron your clothes. Ask your Virgo for help - Virgo lives to serve! Remind your Virgo how much you appreciate his careful choices. Tell her how impressed you are with her impeccable taste and well thought out advice. Make her a part of your life- improvement team! You will be rewarded with an eternal help-mate, and a devoted, down-to-earth, sensual, soft-hearted, compassionate lover.

How to Treat your Libra


Your lovely Libra man or maiden longs to walk side by side with you through life. "Alone" is not in Libra's bountiful vocabulary, nor is "lonely." A life of solitude is just not acceptible, and if your Libra does not feel sufficiently loved, you're sure to hear about it one way or another. If she doesn't find you sitting lovestruck by her side, she'll be fluttering her lashes at the nearest handsome beau, or lavishing gifts upon herself to feel sufficiently adored. If he finds you unattentive or yawning at his words, he will undoubtedly start flirting with the nearest skirt!

Libra is a child of Venus, and will not hesitate to use all the charms the goddess of love possesses in order to get what she wants. Beauty, grace, wit, style and all the wiles of a temptress or temptor are at your Libra's command. How can you possibly hold onto such a romantic creature?

First of all, you must be fair with your Libra. She is highly aware of balance and harmony in all things and can detect the slightest hint of inequity. And be open - your Libra is so focused on YOU that he can surely read your mind anyway. It's especially helpful, too, if you are appreciative of all things beautiful - music, art and people - (especially your Venusian Prince or Princess!). Or if art doesn't grab you, your mind must be active and entertaining enough to keep your Libra interested in everything you have to say. Then again, if you are a terrific lover, you can forget about the rest! The bottom line is, feed your Libra's insatiable need for beauty, love and partnership and you're home free. You can get away with criticism if it's done with a hilarious sense of humor. You can get away with flirting if you flirt doubly (make that triply) with your Libra. And you can get away with boredom if you lavish your Libra with anything pleasing to the senses. It's as simple as that!

Help your Libra with making decisions. Participate in his schemes. Make loving suggestions while she is decorating or dressing. But most of all, make sure your Libra feels adored - and you will be rewarded with one of the most charming, generous, beautiful, handsome, intelligent, witty and doting mates the Zodiac has to offer!

The Hermit in the Tarot


The Hermit in the Tarot is associated with the Sign of Virgo

~ Following the Light ~
The Hermit travels alone through life. He is either oblivious to, or doesn't concern himself with how others perceive him. This one is a light unto his own. The Hermit follows a distinct inner vision. He has a sure and well defined path to follow. This soul knows exactly where he is headed and possibly even what he will find there - and he doesn't necessarily need any companions, or even approval - except perhaps from whomever or whatever he holds highest in his heart.

In my favorite Tarot book, (which I can't find -!!), the author defines the hermit as one who follows the "straight and narrow path" This is my preferred way of reading this card. Chances are - unless the Hermit falls between two very ominous cards - the path the Hermit chooses is the highest and most clear- visioned path one is capable of. In other words... although perhaps unyielding to outside influence, the Hermit doesn't hurt people, lie or make a mess of things. He proceeds through life's challenges with great focus, and the purest of intentions. Sometimes the Hermit represents you, and sometimes another person serving as a Guide for you. Unlike the Heirophant or Priestess, though - this is a guide who is willing to stand well outside of the usual boundaries - apart from tradition or conformity, and quietly lead the way.

In a much simpler context, perhaps the Hermit portrays a situation in which you are completely on your own. There is no partner, nobody to consult with. This is your life - and you must do what you must do! A lonely guy or gal? Perhaps - but we all need solitude sometimes, and sometimes even for a long time. And in the grand scheme of things, except for that guiding light of Love we all hold so dear - we are each indeed - all alone.

In yet another scenario (again assuming that surrounding cards support this) - the Hermit can indicate that things are going along as planned. The scenario you are concerned with remains aligned with your wishes and your ultimate goals.

On a very personal level, this card asks you - what exactly is your path? What light are you following? Is it your own, or something pre-designed by society? In all likelihood, it is a combination of both - but whatever it may be - it is certainly your own, and you alone are responsible for your choices....

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 on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp through the end of 2008, bringing a new Plutonian era of change in our social institutions, government and power structures. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - these are exciting times!! With Pluto first entering Capricorn accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, we may indeed feel blessed with good fortune, harmony and high ideals!

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... September 2008

Mars is in Libra from 8/19 to 10/3. This is a time for taking charge in relationships, and creating balance and order. If the give/take ratio is off, adjustments may need to be made! Men may seem particularly strong-willed. If you want him to lead the way - just ask! (He'll love it)

Venus in Libra is gaining on Mars, and they will conjunct on 9/11. With Mercury in Libra as well, and (wide) trines to Chiron/N.Node/Neptune in Aquarius, we can expect an air of indecision in relationships, and perhaps confusion and/or mixed messages. While you're in limbo or putting off making up your mind, explore your deep, inner knowing, watch and listen for signs from above, and decide to do what's really best for everyone involved. This can be a time of great healing and renewal!

Venus in Scorpio on 9/24 brings passion back, and can either cause unresolved issues to explode, or help pave the way for renewed love and commitment.


During the first week in September, Jupiter trines Saturn (through the 18th) and Mars squares Jupiter, bringing energy to make things happen, particularly in regard to productive relationships that may benefit the community and/or the world. Try to look at any clashes or roadblocks as steps on the road to progress.

The second week in September, Venus/Mars quintile Pluto (exact on 9/13), bringing strong sensual/sexual energy, along with the danger of going to excess (square Jupiter). Use moderation in all things, and practice wisdom, honesty and respect before jumping in!

During the third week, Venus/Mars trine Neptune and quincunx Uranus. This is a time for settling into deep spiritual connections, and finding peace in relationships. Insist on truthful answers to any mysteries that may plague you.

The last week in September, Venus octiles Saturn and quintiles Jupiter, while Mars bi-quintiles Uranus. We can expect irritations in relationships in which commitment is vague or non-existent. The urge to leave and find excitement elsewhere can be overwhelming, but those who are truly in love may feel elated, and more strongly connected than ever.

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

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!
