Good Morning, dear Friends and Readers…I’ve been very, very busy…in my glory with all the energy in Taurus…planted a couple hundred  plants both  flowers and vegetables.  Now I’m up to the seeds and some of the pressure is off.  Time to write again…

Venus is now transiting through Gemini and this month offers some glitch transits as well as a couple of VERY pleasant ones.  Let’s start with an overview of Venus in Gemini, remembering that Jupiter expands the Gemini tendencies through June 27th.  This is a very social time, and busy.  Gemini rules education from kindergarten through high school, as well as  technical classes.  So students may be almost busier than they can handle; parents need to be supportive.  Not only are there term papers due and finals to take, but the end of the year field trips, outdoor days,  graduations, etc.  Gemini also rules the neighborhood.  You may  find you’re out in the car more than usual.  Great for short trips, even regional trips.  There are often neighborhood clean up days and group yard sales at this time.  And the wedding season is beginning, too.  Gemini rules the arms and hands and shoulders.  Those of you who are interested in calligraphy will find this an excellent time to practice the art — if you don’t have a business opportunity to use it, try bartering your skills.  People that paint signs will also find this a good month for work and for promotions and advertising.

Gemini rules siblings and cousins;  there may more get togethers and conversations than usual, and pleasant, too.  Lots of laughter, jokes, puns, and affectionate speech.  Probably a lot of family reunions and gatherings, too, more than usual.  Memorial Day, plus graduations, etc.  IF you need to get a Gemini a gift, try pretty  writing paper, interesting pens,  books of jokes, and/or word puzzles and games.

Transiting Venus conjoins the Moon is early Gemini on the 10th and 11th and this is nice for a party or lunch with the ladies.  New Moon at 19 degrees Taurus was on the 9th in PDT and was also an eclipse, which means the effects last around 6 months, so people should note if they have natal planets in the 19th degree and what aspects they have to the New Moon.  Remember that the New Moon means BOTH the Sun and Moon are in the  same degree, they are conjunct.

I like to allow an orb  of a day or two on either side of an exact transit.  Keeping that in mind, Venus is square Neptune on the 13th.  This one can be a toughie — it could symbolize grief and missing someone so deeply it hurts.  It can symbolize confusion or some kind of a mystery that is hard to clear up.  This would be a good time to visit someone who is ill or confined, to show  compassion, but it is not a great time for parties, shopping, trips, or practical matters.  Don’t lose things because you’re spacey and not paying attention.  IMO, it’s not a good day for medical either because there is a stronger possibility of negative reactions to new medicines.

Roughly the 15th to the 18th (Mercury enters  Gemini, it’s own sign, on the 15th), there are 2 inconjunct transits.  First Venus inconjunct Saturn and then Venus inconjunct Pluto.  You guys know from earlier posts that this particular transit often comes out in the workplace.  Remembering that Mercury moves fast and Neptune is in early Pisces, so they are  square — you MUST AVOID gossip, rumor and innuendo in the workplace or there will be repercussions.  Someone may try to place blame or try to make you responsible for something they should have taken care of — protect yourself by using emails rather than conversations and make every effort to promote clear and positive communication.  Another possibility is you are asked to do something extra on the job, maybe somewhat of an imposition.  IF you can do it with a good heart, down the road there may some benefits but not immediately.  Intuitively, I feel that this YOD formation via transit means some things may happen in the world that are so painful that major populations will be outraged.  (Come on, Jenae, aren’t things bad enough already?  Yeah, it makes me very sad what is happening out in the world.  Study the Hindu — the age of KALI — the earth as whole is in a very difficult long-term cycle.  Conversely,  though, there are miracles happening on a daily basis in the lives of individuals.  Remember that every great movement in history  first began as an idea in one person’s mind — as individuals, we need to plant seeds of goodness …)  I don’t know if it’s just me but so many things in the news seem to be about Saturn in Scorpio bringing to the surface the evils we need to clean up and fix — the enslavement and trafficking and abuse — people, women, children, animals, honeybees even, plants and the notorious actions of Monsanto.  Collectively, we have a huge task to accomplish…

OK, back to Venus…Venus and Mercury are conjunct on May 24th — VERY pleasant for socializing, writing, public speaking, publishing, all kind of advertising and promotions.  The Full Moon in Gemini is the next day — this period is great for parties, just don’t go overboard.  A little moderation will ensure a positive outcome.  Full Moon means the Moon is in Sag — too many adult beverages and a happy occasion could turn into a fight since the Moon opposes Venus on the 25th. IF you need to buy a car, the 24th could be the day you find the right one.

Be sure to write this one on your calendar — Venus conjoins Jupiter on May 28th, which is a Tuesday.  This is a very lucky transit.  You can interpret luck on the mundane level,  such as lotto, betting the horses, finding the perfect gifts or purchases, winning a prize of some kind, winning at sports or an election, or even as finding the parking space you need.  On the mental level, luck could mean a breakthrough in studies or research, passing tests or certifications easily, or even something like tracking down books or information you’d been looking for.  Particularly with Gemini, the intellect should be quick and sharp at the end of May.  Play to win at games that require a good memory for data, or word games — stuff like Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune.  Emotionally, this transit can bring sweet rapport and kindness.  This is a great transit for having lots of fun and maybe taking a short trip either with people you like a lot or to visit someone dear to you.  Remember that Jupiter expands and exaggerates — it IS a beneficial planet, but don’t drive too fast or book your schedule too tight.  Jupiter as the ruler of Sag would also suggest that you be moderate with eating and drinking.

Spiritually, Venus conjunct Jupiter suggests tolerance, generosity, and kindness.  Forgiveness empowers the forgiver.  IF you’ve had a disagreement with someone, and Gemini could be siblings, cousins, neighbors, or even a local club or group — this could be a good time to mend fences.  I happen to have Venus conjunct Jupiter in my natal and I notice people are especially kind to me when other planets conjoin that position.  I tend to seek and build rapport and consensus with others.  It’s just not my nature to teach through confrontation or aggression.  One of the things that built my core values early was I grew up in a miniature United Nations — my father employed people from all over the world.  Jupiter gives you a chance to know people from very different backgrounds.  One of the fun things for me was comparing notes and asking questions about what their lives were like before they came to the USA.  The Christmas party potlucks  were such a delight !!! We all expressed appreciation for the food and goodies from all over the world.  Watch and see how food creates rapport as Jupiter enters Cancer for a year — I’ll have more to say about food next month :))…

Moon in Aquarius trines Venus on May30th — continuing the theme of the week about bonding with people and celebrating together.

On June 1st and 2nd, Venus squares the Moon in Pisces, so Saturday night isn’t as much fun, but Sunday looks OK.  People may say dumb things without thinking, and sensitive people can get their feelings hurt.  Saying less might be better than saying more…  Women  could be going through some emotional changes at this time, too.  Try and sort your feelings out by yourself before saying anything you could regret later.

So there you have it, and I hope all of you get to have some good times…Blessings, Jenae

Hello Dear Readers and Friends, Venus enters Taurus today, such an appropriate transit for gardening, landscaping, even sitting under a tree to enjoy the day.  Venus rules Taurus so there is a harmony here, a little easier to be in the flow and attract to yourself  the resources that you most need.  Let’s begin with a short list of Taurus qualities and activities symbolized by this sign.  Remember some of the earlier lessons, too…Venus rules the 2nd house in the natural wheel of the zodiac.

Taurus is art, beauty, sculpture, gardening, forestry and trees in general.  It is one of the music signs.  Taurus is banking, personal money, our earthly possessions, and  developing our talents.  People with a lot of energy in the 2nd house like hobbies and they often and up turning their hobbies into a 2nd (or 3rd) career.  Taurus loves wholesale connections, a good sale, and auctions, yards sales and flea markets.  This sign rules wooden things and upholstery is a possible talent.  They like to shop for the home and decorate their lives, verging on gaudy at times but there’s nothing wrong with gold-gilded cherubs, crystals hanging in the windows,  and gold or silver throw pillows, sequins, etc.   Dolly Parton is a Taurus.

Taurus likes a well-stocked pantry and they like comfort.  Venus in Taurus rules the throat and if the weather is still cold in your area, your neck needs to stay warm but you should use pure fabrics, not polyester — cotton, wool, silk — all these are better to avoid a chill.

So…putting all this together, for the next 3+ weeks, it will be a good time to pursue the above interests and activities.  Most of the transits are pleasant.  A couple are potentially glitchy.  We’ll start with those and get them out of the way…

Bear in mind that if Venus is squaring or opposing a lot of planets in your chart, it will take more effort to manifest your goals.  Taurus is a fixed sign.  They are patient and kind and slow to anger but if they do get mad, look out !!!  The charging Bull is dangerous.  The downside can be laziness and possessiveness, qualities that make healthy relationships a lot more difficult.

I like to allow a day or two on either side of an exact Venus transit.  On April 22nd, Venus opposes Saturn in Scorpio.  This could be a sad time, with people feeling a lonely or a lack of affection in their lives.  It could also be partners opposing each other regarding money, purchases, investments, etc.  I’ve been telling my private clients this year, since Saturn is in Scorpio, that it’s important to update their wills, trusts, medical and/or financial POA forms, advanced health-care directives, and guardianship papers for those with young children.  These are serious matters and some parents have chosen to have the physical and financial guardians be different people, another way of protecting their children.  Nobody likes to think about all these dire things, but advance planning can give us peace of mind.  In general, Venus opposite Saturn is not a time for shopping unless it’s something like office supplies.  However, the serious tone of this transit makes it a good period to deal with the Scorpio issues mentioned above.

Full Moon this month is on April 25th, with the Moon in Libra. There’s an emphasis on independence versus cooperation and partnerships could be stressed.  ANY important one on one relationship. The day after, the 26th, could be the after-ripples and Venus opposes the Moon (in Scorpio) and the Moon conjoins Saturn later in the day.  There could be difficulties with women.  NOT a good day to have  a party, even though it’s on a Friday.  It’s not a good shopping day, either, because you might wish later that night that you hadn’t made the purchase.  Those of you who are caring for an elderly person could find that stubbornness becomes a big issue.  Another version, it’s not a great day to go to lunch with your mother-in-law.  I think some of you will have a heart to heart, serious talk, with a woman you love who is having big problems.  Compassion and empathy.  Be there for her…

The rest of the major Venus transits are really quite pleasant.  On April 19th, Venus sextiles Neptune in Pisces.  Sextiles mean opportunity with a little effort required to make your dreams and goals come true.  This is a great transit for finding peace of mind through the beauty of nature.  There’s an old saying, “Seek beauty for therein lies Eternal Truth.” This transit combines earth and water.  Playing around with it, you can get a mud mask at a spa, visit a park by the sea or by a lake, build a meditation garden in your backyard, even listening to music or a movie that brings out thoughtfulness and insight — all of these could apply.  By now you should have read enough of these posts that YOU are getting the hang of how to interpret the combinations of energy that the planets symbolize.  One of the nicest things about this transit is friendship that is both practical and spiritual.  Treasure your friends…

On the 21st, Venus trines the Moon — great for social times, lunch with females, shopping, too.  With the Moon in Virgo, you can buy vitamins or health products, visit a plant nursery, buy clothes for work, even something like products to clean your home.  You’re likely to find some very good deals.  This is a great day for gardening, too.  Fertile Moon in the 2nd quarter means plant above ground plants with vines — like peas and beans,
cukes if you’re in a warmer climate.

On April 23rd, Venus is 30 degrees, semi-sextile to Uranus in Aries.  Helpful to try new techniques, new products, be innovative.  You can hear some good news, unexpectedly.  Also, intuition is subtle but it’s there, so pay attention.

Venus trines Pluto in Cap on the 24th.  This one is very good for all things financial and practical — shopping for practical items, investments, starting a savings account, too.  You could receive praise at work for a job well done, even a bonus or a raise.  Another way to use this transit is to invest in yourself — spend some time and/or  money on furthering your skills, talents, and hobbies.  Still another way to use this transit would be straightening out your office or paperwork at home, particularly if you can’t find some important papers, because Pluto will help you find them as you organize yourself.  This is also a good day to get repairs done on office equipment or tools that you need for work.

Venus trines the Moon in Capricorn on the 30th — great for shopping and finding bargains of all kinds, a business lunch, socializing with the elderly, decorating your workplace or office.  It’s also good for health appointments re: bones, joints, and teeth (Capricorn).   If you’re planning cosmetic dentistry, you need more than just this simple transit to choose the right day.  The planets MUST  line up with your personal chart.  Sure, if you’re a Taurus or a Capricorn and your Venus is compatable, then go ahead — but remember the beginning of this post — if you are Leo, Scorp, or Aquarius then beauty treatments  are not as favorable on this day.

The Moon in Pisces sextiles Venus on May 5th.  This is the time to focus on your dreams and your wish list.  There is a lot of spiritual support around you, both visible and invisible.  Great for church, counseling, meditation, support groups, etc.  A great time, too, to  visit someone who is ill or confined, bring the love to them.  Music could be very inspiring in your life.  TG most of it is free these days on the internet.  I think the most important thing to remember with this transit is that the heavenly realms are made of such beauty and love that the most inspiring sights and loving experiences  on earth are but a pale reflection.  Still, the veil parts just a bit when Venus and Neptune combine, allowing us  to bring that love and beauty down to earth, if only for a little while…to remind us what awaits us on the other side, and to sustain and encourage us on our path here.  No matter how difficult life may seem, we are not alone.  Our loved ones on the other side are cheering us on…it takes guts and courage to make our way in this world.  Earth is a tough school, no doubt.  Look at today…I looked up Boston and the Moon is 25 degrees Cap — the transiting Mars-Sun conjunction in Aries today was 25-26 degrees.  An exact square.  There’s a lot of slimebuckets in this world.  I HTG they catch them before they can hurt anyone else.  Sometimes when these tragic events happen, the greatest love, brotherhood, and heroism manifest as a result.  Victory in the face of evil…

Stay safe, dear Readers…Blessings, Jenae

Back again, dear Friends and Readers…the days just roar by, literally, it’s been so windy I wondered if the power would go out, but so far so good….and now Venus is entering Aries for a 3 week transit.  Of course, this is very beneficial for people with strong Aries in their charts.  Venus is Aries is also helpful to the other fire signs, Leo and Sag.  Geminis and Aquarians get the sextile which is a positive.  Libra gets the opposition, and combined with Pluto in Cap, the Aries transits create a T-Square transit with means a lot of energy is impelled and expressed through the empty sign — in this case Cancer.  So people with strong Libra placements could find the next week or so fairly challenging, less so as the Sun progresses further in Aries. People with strong placements in Cancer and Capricorn are taking the square from transiting Aries planets — challenging, and again, more so in the early part of this forecast.  Cardinal signs could be working very hard and getting a LOT accomplished — squares can be positive, too !! Scorpio and Virgo get the inconjunct — a symbol of those sticky situations that are hard to sort out.  Don’t get sucked into thinking you have to solve every problem that might really belong to someone else. Let your conscience be your guide.  Pisces and Taurus take the 30 degree semi-sextile, very mild and subtle.  The interpretation could change A LOT if you know your chart and have natal planets in Aries; then there would be a lot more overt activity going on.

Anyway, Venus is the “attract it to you” energy.  Mars is the “go out and get it, go after it” energy.  Mars is the ruler of Aries, so Venus in this sign is not always comfortable.  Venus in Aries women are usually not traditional.  Every single  woman I ever knew with Aries strong in her chart was good with cars, with tools, with  remodeling homes, and they understand guys better than a lot of other signs.  They’re kind of brassy, ballsy — more aggressive than most women, good muscles and they thrive on sports and physical challenges.  You won’t often find them with artificial nails and a  frilly wardrobe.  They’re usually pretty good at flirting and letting a  guy know they’re interested in getting to know him better.

So, looking at this Venus in Aries transit, you have an opportunity to get more exercise as a path to health and beauty.  You have an opportunity to try new activities, meet new people, to take the initiative,  to grow.  The glyph for Aries is called the Ram’s Horns by some but to me it is the power of the seed pushing its way up out of the ground to the sunlight.  With so much voltage in the air ( so many planets in Aries), you won’t have any  lack of initiative but you might need to moderate yourself a bit.  If you are too impulsive and lack sensitivity to others, you won’t gather the support you want and need.  What you think is  just a spirited and stimulating conversation could be perceived as a fight.  So do remember that Venus by its very nature is receptive — allow yourself to be receptive to others even while you’re out there conquering the world :))…

This transit is fabulous for art involving fire, heat, and/or metals.  Pottery, ornamental iron, glass-blowing — just a few examples.  I know a guy who has a Venus-Mars conjunction in Aries and he’s a great welder.  He also loves hunting and fishing.  Since he has that artistic conjunction, he was hungry to do more than weld farm equipment.  He started making gun safes and THEN he started carving gun stocks — beautiful scrimshaw designs where it has to be perfect. And he was truly an artist in his work with guns.  Note that Aries people are often very adept with sharp tools — surgeons, carvers, butchers, and artists, too….

OK, let’s looks at some of the Venus in Aries transits coming up shortly…I’m posting the exact day of the transits, but you should also allow a day on either side of the exact time, to allow for orb.  The Full Moon is March 27th and the Libra Moon will oppose Venus as well as the Sun.  Handle the female relationships in your life carefully.  Things could fly off the handle too easily now.  Think of teenage daughters around 13- 17 years’ old.  Well, all of us have a teenager still inside us somewhere J).   People around you may not be totally  rational.

The very next day. March 28th exact, and the 29th,  Venus conjoins the Sun AND Uranus at 7 and 8 degrees Aries.  This is pretty interesting, don’t you think?  The planet of love combining with the planet of the unexpected, the intuitive and speedy Uranus,  also joining with the Sun.  Love is certainly in the air :))  With Uranus, sometimes it’s a brief relationship, a catalyst that helps us grow, though what we learn may stay with us for years, sometimes the person is not meant to walk off into the sunset WITH us…  This triple conjunction — powerful, YES !!! Stable, NO !!!  Fabulous for the arts and inspiration — creativity comes in many forms…

SO enjoy the dance, protect yourself a bit, and see what happens with your love after this transit passes…  The same thing with beauty — please forgo anything too radical in the tattoo department because you could easily change your mind once this transit passes.  Clothes are fine — they’re not permanent like tattoos or cosmetic surgery.

Spiritually, this year it’s Good Friday heading into Easter.  What a beautiful conjunction to  gather with kindred spirits and celebrate the miracle.  VERY uplifting !!!  Seek beauty for therein lies Eternal Truth…you go to church to go to church, but these transits could mean love finds YOU at church :))

Continuing with this theme of love, art, and beauty — getting outdoors is highly recommended when Venus is in Aries.  The beauty of nature may inspire you in new ways.  On April 7th there is an exact conjunction of Venus and Mars.  See the Mars in Aries post for more details.  The New Moon in Aries is April 10th — that means both Sun and Moon in Aries and Venus will also conjoin the Moon.  Usually, in a woman’s chart, Venus on the Moon means lunch with the ladies, or some kind of party.  You could give a party with these transits, or attend a party to celebrate an event — wedding, anniversary, baby shower, new home, etc.  I could be wrong — maybe it’s just a party to have a party — there doesn’t have to be a reason to gather and have some fun…

In a man’s chart Venus on the Moon would be emphasizing his relationship with females — Moms, daughters, sisters, wife, etc.  The beauty theme might express as building something or some kind of home project.  Landscaping, yard work,  or getting the patio ready for the season would fit, too.  I had a client a long time ago and he had 8 daughters — yes, he had Jupiter on his Moon J)  Can’t remember what sign, probably Leo :))  An abundance of children…  I knew another male client who had 4 sisters and he had Jupiter on his Moon in Cancer…an abundance of family…

On April 14th, Venus will be at the 29th degree of Aries and semi-square Jupiter in Gemini.  Use some caution and moderation with driving, sports, physical activities in general.  AND CONVERSATIONS — take the long-range view and don’t get sucked into the heat of the moment.  There’s a pressure and an intensity when a planet reaches 29 degrees because there’s nowhere to go but into 0 degrees of the next sign.  Kind of like taking a final exam before moving on to the next grade or class.  Be sensible…

Well, that’s it for now…stayed tuned…Blessings, Jenae
