Welcome to “Starcast” – a delightful look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. Our solar system is a long way from February 14th – the designated calendar date for Valentine’s Day. Absolutely a time of high celebration for the concept of love, affection, and romance. Included, too, are warmth, kindness, and laughter. Yet, those qualities still reign supreme throughout the entire year – every year. How’s that possible? It’s possible – no, it is – because the planet, Venus (absolute love) travels through each of the 12 sun-signs. Constantly. So, no matter who you are or where you are (on Earth), you’re influenced by whatever planetary activity is taking place. No one is excluded. But with the powerful Venus in play, who would want to be?
Several days ago, on October 3rd at 2:59 a.m. (ET), Venus entered the reserved and incredibly glamorous sun-sign of Virgo, the Virgin, and glides through there until Sunday, October 28th at 9:04 a.m. (ET), when it leaves and enters the sun-sign of the fascinating Libra, the Balancing Scales (surely, a “Starcast” for another time). And since everyone 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 Venus does this by attracting whatever you desire. Using thoughtfulness and unlimited amounts of imagination and creativity, nothing is beyond the ability of Venus to bring love, laughter, and happiness into your existence. However, You must first activate all those qualities in Your own life. It is You who must be all that Venus is, if you’re to attract – and keep – whatever and whomever you desire.
Visualize a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (3 to 2 o’clock, for example) is a house – an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your personal world. And 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:
[ARIES] March 21-April 20
Your 6th House: The Work Scene and its Content. Perfect! Even though you’re the perennial hard-worker, Venus now brings a light touch to your work scene as well as to your relations with co-workers and associates. Keep going!! SIDESTEP overlooking some new and excellent ideas.
[TAURUS] April 21-May 20
Your 5th House: Close Relationships, Creativity, and Speculation – taking a chance. Don’t look away from this all-important placement of Venus in your birth chart. Now is not the time to allow old memories to rule. Live in the moment! SIDESTEP going over past situations and involvements.
[GEMINI] May 21-June 20
Your 4th House: Your Base-of-Operations – where-you-live and where-you-work. Go slowly and thoughtfully, as you allow the positive effects of affection to permeate your home base, as well as basic issues. It’s a time for understanding. SIDESTEP sarcasm, yours or someone else’s.
[CANCER] June 21-July 22
Your 3rd House: Expressing your Point of View. This is exciting! Whether by e-mail, phone, or a text message, the ways in which you now express yourself are lively and imaginative. Even a casual comment has humor. SIDESTEP allowing a bleak take on situations to invade your thoughts.
[LEO] July 23-August 22
Your 2nd House: Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. Good things come through to you – financially. Calls are good, e-mails are good, meetings are good. Also, an assortment of new ideas now create the way to momentary gain. SIDESTEP losing your temper – with the wrong people.
[VIRGO] August 23-September 22
Your 1st House: Personal Efforts and Endeavors. This is a superb time! With the planet, Venus (All for Love), gliding through your first house of close-to-the-heart matters, you’re a living magnet for just about anything that your heart desires. SIDESTEP a reluctance to commit.
[LIBRA] September 23-October 22
Your 12th House: Private Calls and Secret Strategy-Planning Sessions. Much that goes behind-the-scenes now works to your advantage – as long as you maintain total control. Also, know exactly who you’re getting involved with. SIDESTEP being indifferent when interest is the Key.
[SCORPIO] October 23-November 22
Your 11th House: Your Secret Agenda. What do you want? With Venus comfortably ensconced in that sector which promises to deliver the desires of your heart – what do you really want? Find the answer – quickly. And go after it right now!! SIDESTEP chilliness, on your part.
[SAGITTARIUS] November 23-December 21
Your 10th House: Career. Fabulous! It’s just what you’ve needed for quite a while. Warmth and affection, up there, in your tenth house of career and advancement. And now it exists in the divine form of Venus. Make the most of it!! SIDESTEP disappearing – at the most inadvisable time.
[CAPRICORN] December 22-January 19
Your 9th House: Contacts, Plans, and Projects – near and at a distance. This planetary placement feels very comfortable, for the divine Venus wants only to make life – your life – perfect for you. Luxuriate in its presence; get things done. SIDESTEP being indolent – because you can.
[AQUARIUS] January 20-February 18
Your 8th House: Revitalization, on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Unseen, yes; unnoticed, definitely no. Because wherever the planet, Venus, is – you’re totally aware of its placement. Make the most of it now!! SIDESTEP being vague and unapproachable.
[PISCES] February 19-March 20
Your 7th House: Alliances, Agreements, and Special Arrangements – personal and professional. While you usually rely on your ruling planet, Neptune (intuition), to see you through – Venus can now get you what you want. SIDESTEP hiding out – when center stage belongs to you.
