Welcome to “Starcast” – a fascinating look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. It’s Valentine’s Day! And no other Holiday creates quite the kind of excitement that this one does. A red Heart is at the center of, and on, everything – greeting cards, candy, cupcakes, cakes; in fact, if it’s editable, there’s a Heart on it, if it’s February 14th. What better time than right now to focus on the fact that the planet, Venus (love, warmth, close relationships, creativity, and abundance
– of all kinds), has been in the resourceful sun-sign of Capricorn, the Mountain Goat (forever climbing up the steep mountain ledge to safety and success), since November 5, 2013 – and will be there until Venus leaves Capricorn and enters the amazing Aquarius, the Water Bearer (forever pouring the Waters of Truth on Humankind), on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at 4:04 p.m. (ET)
Noteworthy: This is good – very good, for this particular planetary transit (Venus in Capricorn) brings significant, vivid, and quite often, very favorable and loving situations and conditions with it. Here, the elements of care, understanding, and thoughtfulness are combined with new developments – developments which assure an unwavering focus and single-minded strength that is pure Capricorn – plus! a certain and positive transformative energy as the planet, Venus, moves forward through whichever House (there are 12) that Capricorn, the Mountain Goat, governs in your own birth chart.
Look at a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (7 to 6 o’clock, for example) is a house, an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your day-to-day world, one of which Capricorn rules in your birth chart. At best, what will occur now is a new and no-nonsense way of thinking, of feeling, and handling newly-created situations. It’s the tangible benefit of love – no matter who you are or where you are.
Here’s how the existence of Venus in Capricorn, the Mountain Goat, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
ARIES March 21-April 19
The 10th House: Your Career, Its Content, and Its Direction. Exciting career developments now take place – and continue to take place. It’s vital that you have all research material plus! relevant facts and figures close by. SIDESTEP a reluctance to even consider a new opportunity.
TAURUS April 20-May 20
The 9th House: People, Plans, and Projects – near and at a distance. Time now to reach out, on all levels, as you work closely with outlines, concepts, and blueprints. Survey the entire landscape for solutions and leave no stone unturned. SIDESTEP overlooking some superb ideas.
GEMINI May 21-June 21
The 8th House: Revitalization, on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Stay true to your love of conversation. It’s both an invaluable guideline and a precious object of constant backup. SIDESTEP going over past situations and involvements, best forgotten.
CANCER June 22-July 22
The 7th House: Alliances, Agreements, and Special Arrangements; even, the desired Contract. Allow yourself to consider the special point-of-view of others. This is necessary if a viable solution – or course of action – is to be reached. SIDESTEP sarcasm – either yours or someone else’s.
LEO July 23-August 22
The 6th House: The Work Scene as well as Relations with Close Associates and Co-Workers. Right now, an even-handed approach, on your part, is absolutely required. Otherwise, there will be no progress. SIDESTEP losing your temper – with the wrong people at the wrong time.
VIRGO August 23-September 22
The 5th House: Close Relationships and Creative Matters. The planet, Venus, now in Capricorn, is certainly a luxurious arrangement for you. Others are drawn to you – and you can be a detail-minded as you want to be. And it works. SIDESTEP indifference when interest is the Key!
LIBRA September 23-October 22
The 4th House: Your Base-of-Operations – where-you-live and where-you-work. Pay close attention to what others, close to you, are saying, especially in regard to the fine points of home and home-related matters. SIDESTEP being indolent – because situations now allow you to be.
SCORPIO October 23-November 21
The 3rd House: All Forms of Communications. It’s inadvisable to say the first thing that comes to mind now. Tact and diplomacy are a necessity, if you want current involvements (personal and professional) to continue. SIDESTEP a bleak take on situations that now invade your thoughts.
SAGITTARIUS November 22-December 21
The 2nd House: Your Personal Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. Move ahead with understanding and a sound overview of current situations. Applying your innate brilliance, to everything, will create some very good conditions. SIDESTEP hiding out – when center stage belongs to you.
CAPRICORN December 22-January 19
The 1st House: Personal Efforts and Endeavors. Ease through those close-to-the-heart involvements and special situations which now dominate your Life. Harmony and a sense of balance will save the day.
So, strive for them, before anything else. SIDESTEP being difficult.
AQUARIUS January 20-February 18
The 12th House: Private Matters and Closed-Door Strategy-Planning Sessions. Venus in Capricorn is perfect for you, as it provides the strong backup that you need whenever you’re truly planning strategy. SIDESTEP chilliness; warmth, on your part, promises to work wonders.
PISCES February 19-March 20
The 11th House: Your Secret Agenda. No one knows what you want. And you have no intention of revealing this. That’s fine, for now you have an ideal setting in which to go about your day – and obtain your heart’s desire. SIDESTEP disappearing – at the most inadvisable time.
