Sun transit through Sagittarius

sun sagittarius

According to the Tropical astrology the Sun entered the constellation of Sagittarius on November 23 through December 21st. It’s key phrase is: “I Understand.”  Keywords associated with Sagittarius are:  honest, philosophical, independent, dogmatic, outgoing, blunt, optimistic. It is a fire sign and is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion.

With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need for an intimate connection with a person and with ourselves, to the desire to reach out to the world and connect with something larger than ourselves.  It is time to expand your mind and vision of your life and the world. If you can see it, you can make it happen. You can take your dreams and make them reality now. You’re more bold, daring, and confident, and when you merge that with the strength, power, and purpose you’ve already developed, there isn’t much that you can’t do… letting no one get in your way.

While the Sun moves through this mutable sign, we can take steps to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us. We are more able to muster up the courage to expand our horizons and branch out into new ways of thinking. You want to have more experiences now, open yourself up to the world, and solidify your beliefs. We can gain more confidence and optimism by focusing on the “big picture” as we move away from our focus on the details of mundane existence.  Although we may be prone to overdoing our expectations, we have the opportunity to nurture our faith, hope, and vision under this influence.

This fire sign compels you to explore farther away from your habitat and homes.  You may be more spiritual, or become intensely interested in learning and devote yourself to a quest for knowledge, whether it be tangible, physical knowledge, intellectual, or spiritual.  Creativity and storytelling thrive under this sign’s influence.  You may have a hard time sticking to schedules and deadlines during this time.  Adventurous Sagittarius is asking you to take a risk and leave the familiar.  This is the sign of the archer. It loves optimism, adventure, exploration and philosophy.  It is on a quest for farther reaching answers.  So go ahead…Take chances and Make bold choices!

Sun Transit through Scorpio

scorpio sun

The Sun will make it’s transit through the Scorpio constellation from October 23rd till November 21st, according to the Tropical astrology.  The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”.  Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feelings.  Scorpio is penetrating, transformative and unstoppable.  Mediocrity does not satisfy neither.  Scorpio’s energy is provocative, usually in a quiet, as well as passionate, strong-willed and intense way.  It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.

In Libra, we strive for equality and fairness.  In Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn’t fair.  Jealousy, secrecy, beating a dead horse, and manipulation are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.  Scorpio can be rigid, stubborn, and have an unyielding point of view.

Scorpio represents the toxic waters.  All of that suppressed stuff and emotions we shove away deeply that we don’t want to deal with.  Scorpio’s energy is not only represented by the scorpion but also by the phoenix, death and rebirth through dismemberment and remembering.  It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.

scorpio scorpionHalloween takes place under the influence of Scorpio and that’s no coincidence.  We all adopt the scorpion’s intensity during this time.  As the days grow shorter and Autumn fades into winter in the Northern hemisphere, the natural world begins to decay–a reminder of our own mortality that awakens our curiosity about the meaning of life and its many realms.

Scorpio energy brings intensity and mystery.  You may be drawn to searching the darkest regions of the Universe to bring all the hidden mystical and mysterious knowledge into the bright light of the day.  This energy has a magnetic pull at this time of the year– all you have to do is tune into it.

The sign Scorpio brings highly perceptual psychic abilities.  Scorpio’s energy is good for cutting through the “BS” and getting to look at things for what they really are. Superficially simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio.  We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters.  All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed, interests us, because normally it is considered socially unacceptable or that you may be rejected by a type of behavior.

scorpio risenYou should be able to utilize some key motivators centered on ambition while Scorpio rules.  Position and power may be yours for the taking if you shoot for the stars.  If you really set your mind on what you want and passionately commit to your endeavors, you’ll be supported.  It’s about believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of greatness.

One of Scorpio’s symbol is the Eagle,  which represents intelligence and clear visions, so you may want to pay attention to your “visions” or dreams this month.  Keeping a dream journal may be enlightening, especially if you’re looking for some specific answers.    Visions don’t necessarily have to occur at night, you can also get sudden flashes of insight during your waking hours, if you’re looking for them.

Scorpio’s energy is passionate, dynamic, and observant.  You may find that this vibration seeps into your bones and makes you feel more powerful then any other time of the year.  There are lessons to be learned on how to live your life the rest of the year.  Use the time while the Sun is in Scorpio to access your sensual side.  This isn’t necessarily about sex, but rather experiencing the sensuous feelings that mean you’re truly alive.  Turn everything you do into an opportunity to be passionate and intense about life.

Sun transit through Gemini

sun in gemini

According to the Tropical astrology the sign Gemini is exalted from May 21st through June 21st. Gemini’s key phrase is “I think”. It is an air sign, occurring at the end of the season making it mutable.   A mutable sign occurs at the end of the season as the energies begin to shift into the new season making them more adaptable, sharp, resourceful, and flexible.   Gemini is the “quick communicator”.    Gemini’s key words are:  clever, versatile, inquisitive, charming, mental, witty, restless, adaptable, sociable, expressive, and fun.  It’s ruing planet is Mercury.

Gemini is a curious and intellectual sign.  Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. People take up interests that spark new ideas.  It encourages reading and studying.  Attitudes become inquisitive, clever, interested in “novelty”, and are willing to try something new just for the heck of it. We are more open to talking things over and sharing new ideas during this time.  Communication of all sorts seems to become effortless, instinctive, and enjoyable.  Gemini energy turns our attention to social networking, recovering friendships, and becoming extroverted.

Air signs are communicative and intellectual.  They like to weigh their options out and reason things out.  Gemini’s planetary ruler Mercury rules the mental body, style of thinking and all sorts of communication, including computers and telephones.  It influences our thoughts, connections, writing, and logic.  Mercury also has an effect on the nervous system.

Gemini constantly curates new ideas so existing facts can be compared and, if necessary, tossed aside. You may need an update in your ideas and this might become challenged by someone else’s opinion.  The trick is to not get upset because Gemini’s duality insists that there are two sides to every story, and no truth is sacred (for now).  It brings a keen skepticism motivated by our need to know the truth.  Use this energy to create new friendships, and open ourselves to truthful relationships and connections with the people in our lives now.  Learn to respect other people’s ways and points of view.

The shadow side to this energy is that we can become restless and scatter our energies around to a multiple things as a result of our curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.  Watch for idle gossip. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings. Watch out or becoming close-minded, opinionated, and nervous, ad your ideas becoming too scattered or insincere.   Also beware of saying one thing but then doing another…be mindful of that in people as well.  Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini.  If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as exercising, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy.  You might find it hard to concentrate on one thing because of all the chatter going on this month from everybody.

Overall, enjoy this lighthearted time.  This is the time to speak your truth.  Use this time to strengthen your capabilities and to express and communicate who you really are.  Explore and express your own opinions rather then relying on what others suggest you think. Gemini’s influence grants us some much needed flexibility and a playful realistic attitude about ourselves.

Sun transit through Taurus

taurus

Spring has sprung, love may be in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life.  According to the Tropical astrology  the Sun is exalted in Taurus from April 21, 2015 through May 20, 2015.   Taurus’ key phrase is “I have”.  It is the “steadfast worker”.  Being a fixed sign, occurring in the middle of the season when the energy of the season is at it’s height, Taurus can come off determined, powerful, intimidating and often stubborn.

In Taurus, the Sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. This may not be the time for brilliant ideas or innovation but it is the time where you will have the tenacity and strength to follow through all the projects that were initiated during the Aries Sun.  You reap what you sow and this is the time to put in the work.  The Bull also motivates us to attain a level of very basic security, the kind accumulated through routine and through taking things slow.  Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity. The shadow side of Taurus is possessiveness and bullheadedness.

When the Sun moves through this earthy sign it’s time to stop and smell the roses.  Earth signs are practical, down to earth and they tend to be material and play it safe.  The Sun’s transit through Taurus is an invitation to get more grounded, practical, and enjoy our senses.  It’s time to reconnect with your body, being physical beings and all…  It’s time to honor your physical needs.  Taurus is all about engaging your senses…  a rewarding nice bubble bath, enjoying savory foods, the joy of physical touch.  Take the time to literally stop and smell the roses or get some bodywork done… align your energy fields, get a massage.  How about a healthy, tasty and nutritious diet?  Make dietary changes that will nourish and support your body.  Make time to honor Mother Earth and nature.  Sit outside for a couple of minutes during the day….get to know your land.  Watch the animals that live in your property, listen to the birds.

This is typically the time where plants start to take root, inspiring us to create better habits and routines for ourselves.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and Venus rules the throat and kidneys.  Our throat chakras may become vulnerable and need special attention and healing.  Venus is the god of LOVE and during this transit it puts the emphasis on a lot of self-love.

Taurus is also associated with money.    Around this time people seem to spend more money.  They indulge in the finer things in life, things that will bring tactile pleasure.  This is also a good time to work on manifesting more wealth and cash flow…work with this energy.

My second child is a Taurus and he always has to “have” things.  He is constantly asking “Can I have it?”..money, sea shells, rocks.  He touches everything and puts it in his mouth…engaging the senses.

Aries Sun

 

According to the Tropical Astrology the Sun entered the sign of Aries on the Spring Solstice.  Aries is the wake-up call of the zodiac. In Aries the Sun is “exalted” in astrological terms, since its return to the point of the zodiac where dayarieslight begins to overcome the dark, is seen as the sun-god regaining his power and rising victorious to take control.  During ancient times the Spring Equinox marked the start of the New Year and festivities were held to honor the birth of new life and the new beginnings that lay in store.  The Ram became celebrated in the associated stars as a sacred symbol of resurrection, since its fleece, when horn, continues to grow and provides a constant, abundant supply. Its origin is Egyptian and derives from their practice of sacrificing the sacred ram to the Sun at the Spring Equinox, to ensure his return and secure a successful year ahead. Christian customs still reflect this New Year worship, for Easter ~ the rising of the Lord ~ is always held in the week after the Full Moon that follows the Sun’s entry into this sign; and eggs are given as a symbol of new life and new opportunities.

Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and therefore a youthful sign, this influence is one of a childlike invincibility.  In Aries, the Sun is enthusiastic and spontaneous. We are motivated by the desire to conquer. We are more impulsive, and have the urge to initiate. We feel inspired to spontaneity, like we can do anything because we’re absolutely invulnerable and unshakable.  Aries is a sign that bounces back quickly so there is little shame with Aries. It is brave and pioneering, and somewhat innocent. We are direct and rather uncomplicated in our needs, but we can also be short-sighted and lack the desire to plan ahead.  Aries key phrase is “I am”.  It is the “bold pioneer”.

Being a Cardinal sign, it kicks off the biginning of a season.  Cardinal signs initiate change and bring new energy, a beginning, the start of a new phase.  These qualities are indicative of a forceful and dynamic, take charge and move ahead type of energy.

You can expect to start a million projects but may not necessarily complete them, save that for another sign.  The Ram plows head first into obstacles and plans with a blind fury and passion, pursuing an object feverishly but losing interest once the thrill of the chase wears off.  During this time of the Aries Sun take advantage of all this get up and go energy.  Accept challenges for the mere pleasure of trying to meet them.

Although ruled by the planet Mars, Aries has much to do with the solar qualities of creativity, energy, enthusiasm and courage. The Sun is the symbol of consciousness, individuality, clear direction and definition ~ the power of the will to rise above instinct and take control.

In addition to this solar quality, Aries resonates to the energy of its planetary ruler, Mars, recognized as the bringer omarsf action and the impulse to attack or strike back. Mars rules the physical and assertive nature, initiative, and sexuality.  It is the defiant spirit; when dignified it will show courage, fearlessness, respected leadership, the propensity to take a risk and the lover of a challenge. In this form Mars is the moral champion, ready to take up arms on behalf of others less able or willing to put their necks on the line. When poorly placed and displaying its less noble traits, it represents needless aggression, violent eruptions, assertiveness to the point of selfishness, and the urge to take from others without due regard to their needs and well being.

One of the three Fire sign Aries is hot and heats things up quickly.  The gift of the fire signs is creative inspiration, evolving into an endless supply of bright ideas and contagious enthusiasm. When the fire is lit, ie., when they are motivated by a cause, they simply blaze with energy and ideas and become so consumed by their passions that everyone around them feels drawn into the flame. But fire consumes, and ultimately those energy levels will drop, particularly if the Aries inclination for instant action is not matched by the reality of instant results.

Aries rulership with Mars and natural association with the Sun makes this Fire sign a flaming force to be reckoned with. It’s like a triple flame that’s ready to strike at any moment.  Watch your emotions during this time and how you react to others.  If you are enraged and feel the urge to fight, question: are you fighting the right person over a matter of significance? Or is there a larger, more relevant battle that you should be dedicating your time and energies to, the battle for truth, honesty and, self-respect?

Aries governs the head and face.

Positive Traits of Aries: adventurous, energetic, pioneering, courageous, enthusiastic, confident, dynamic, and quick-witted

Negative Traits of Aries: Selfish, quick-tempered, impulsive, impatient, foolhardy, and daredevil
