Welcome to “Starcast” – a fascinating look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. Although all births, worldwide, are truly unique, divine, and cherished (or should be), the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge welcomed an eight-pound, six-ounce baby boy – the third in line to the British throne – last Monday, July 22, 2013. Everyone, worldwide, was ecstatic. And naturally, this dear little soul has a marvelous birth chart (the zodiac wheel which delineates where the Sun, the Moon, and the planets were at the moment he was born). As it happens, the Royal Baby is a Cancer/Leo, having been born less than an hour before the Sun entered the sun-sign of Leo, the Lion.
Just as interesting is the shift of Venus (absolute love), as Venus slips from the outgoing and demonstrative Leo, the Lion, into the reserved and incredibly glamorous sun-sign of Virgo, the Virgin, at 8:41 a.m. (ET) – on the same day, Monday, June 22nd. Venus will glide through Virgo until Friday, August 16, 2013, when it enters the fascinating Libra, the Balancing Scales (definitely, a “Starcast” for another time). And since everyone, worldwide, has Virgo ruling one of the twelve houses within their own birth chart, everyone is influenced by this scintillating Venus in Virgo. Here’s the energy that supplies your favorite people, situations, conditions, and circumstances. And using unlimited amounts of imagination and creativity, Venus does this by attracting whatever, and whomever, you desire. Nothing is beyond the ability of Venus to bring love, laughter, and happiness into your existence.
Visualize a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s the zodiac wheel; that’s your birth chart, too, in which each pie-shaped wedge (2 to 1 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 Virgo governs. So, this stunning cosmic activity (Venus in Virgo) prevails, as it’s time now to acknowledge Love.
Here’s how the planet, Venus (absolute love), in Virgo, the Virgin, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
