Welcome to “Starcast” – an incredible look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. Once again, let’s investigate our magnificent solar system and focus on that scintillating planet, Venus (love, laughter, affection, and creativity, in all its forms) – and discover exactly which sun-sign it’s traveling through. And what that particular sojourn means for each of the 12 sun-signs. Keep in mind: No matter who you are or where (in this world) you are, you’re affected by whatever planetary activity is taking place. No one, absolutely no one, is excluded.
Scroll ahead several days to Monday, February 25, 2013 at 9:03 p.m. (ET), when the planet, Venus, enters the glamorous and low-key sun-sign of Pisces, the Fish (one swimming upward toward the light; the other, downward toward the deepest part of a sandy Ocean floor), for the rest of February – and into March, when on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 10:16 p.m. (ET), it enters the dramatic sun-sign of Aries, the Ram (definitely, a “Starcast” for another time). Noteworthy: Venus is warm, loving, eager to embrace and be embraced. But like every sun-sign it enters, the planet (in this instance, the emotional and wildly creative Venus) takes on the qualities of that sun-sign. And soon, Venus will be moving steadily ahead in Pisces, the Fish – one of the three seductive Water signs (Cancer and Scorpio are the other two).
Look at a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s the zodiac wheel – that’s your birth chart, too, in which 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 daily existence – one of which Pisces, governs. And know that this influence (Venus in Pisces) creates edgy, but lovingly intense situations, conditions, and encounters.
Here’s how the scintillating Venus (absolute love), in Pisces, the Fish, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
[ARIES] March 21-April 20
Your 12th House: Secret Strategy-Planning Sessions which involve Close-to-the-Heart Projects. This is an incredible time, since the planet, Venus (love and creativity), is in the highly intuitive Pisces. Initiate the insightful plans that come to mind. SIDESTEP uncertainty, in any form.
[TAURUS] April 21-May 20
Your 11th House: Getting-What-You-Want. Allow your fine imagination to blend with Venus in Pisces – and go after the desires-of-your-heart. Do this while maintaining a strong and consistent grip on reality. Side excursions are not advised. SIDESTEP evasiveness – about everything.
[GEMINI] May 21-June 20
Your 10th House: Career, Gain, and Advancement. This is absolutely the right moment to glide silently ahead. Talk, though you may, you’re also superb at listening to what others are thinking. Use that skill in your quest for a better position. SIDESTEP the absence of your high energy.
[CANCER] June 21-July 22
Your 9th House: People, Plans, and Projects – near and at a distance. Don’t forget who you really are – and just how skillful you can be when it comes to calls, meetings, outlines, presentations, and proposals. Actually, you are the finest! SIDESTEP going too fast for conditions.
[LEO] July 23-August 22
Your 8th House: Revitalization, on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Time to allow your special brand of insight to permeate all situations, as well as relationships. New developments now surface unexpectedly. SIDESTEP disregarding the wishes of those close.
[VIRGO] August 23-September 22
Your 7th House: Alliances, Arrangements; even, the desired Contract. Your sense of timing now proves invaluable. Keep in mind, however, that not everyone, in your personal circle, has your mental endurance. Survey situations and involvements closely. SIDESTEP hostility, on a large scale.
[LIBRA] September 23-October 22
Your 6th House: The Work Scene, Its Content, and Its Direction. With Venus in Pisces, the current pace suits your casual style perfectly. Still, your excellent sense of the right moment is what turns even the minor incident into a triumph. SIDESTEP skipping over whatever is positive.
[SCORPIO] October 23-November 22
Your 5th House: Close Relationships and Creative Matters – of all kinds. Be the Quiet You, for Venus in Pisces dovetails wonderfully with your personal efforts – especially as it relates to that which you love. It’s good, indeed. SIDESTEP a humorless take on late-breaking developments.
[SAGITTARIUS] November 23-December 21
Your 4th House: Base-of-Operations – where-you-live and where-you-work. Advance, careful not to disturb anything – or anyone – on your path. Know that a close-to-the-heart involvement now looms on the horizon. Be steady. SIDESTEP ignoring your superb fact-finding skills.
[CAPRICORN] December 22-January 19
Your 3rd House: All Forms of Communications. Your perfect pitch saves – as well as promotes – a cross-section of new ideas, calls, plans, meetings, and last-minute get-togethers. Be certain not to leave anyone out. Everyone counts! SIDESTEP a lackluster approach to opportunity.
[AQUARIUS] January 20-February 18
Your 2nd House: Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. This is a favorite activity of yours. And with Venus permeating this sector, glide silently forward – developing and increasing – your various sources of income. To good to be true is about right! SIDESTEP being difficult to reach.
[PISCES] February 19-March 20
Your 1st House: Personal Efforts and Endeavors. This cycle (Venus in Pisces) marks the start of some sensational plans and projects. Don’t look back – just keep advancing with style, flair, and enthusiasm. You’ll relish all new developments. SIDESTEP hiding out – really, hiding out.
