Eclipse Watch - Today in Asia and the US

Lunar eclipse 2012Eclipses are a time of foggy thinking. And it is not a good time for any decision making or signing of improtant documents. So if you are in the middle of something improtatn this week, hold off. There is an eclipse going on from eastern Asia to the western U.S. It is an annular eclipse where the moon passes in front of the sun.

The rare lunar-solar alignment was visible in Asia early Monday before it moved across the Pacific — and the international dateline — where it was seen in parts of the western United States late Sunday afternoon.

It is an old Indian superstition to stay inside during an eclipse and do not eat or drink for the duration. Astorlogically speaking though, the effects of an eclipse occur three days before and last 10 days after the actual eclipse takes place. Plan accordingly.

Have something weighty on your mind? Now is the time to hoist it and toss it. Aries exude attitude and confidence. And yet, every one of your opinions hit the target in a breezy, diplomatic manner. And you have been incubating some terrific ideas that once planted, can take root and grow. Who would have thought? Nuh? So what are you waiting for?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans seem to be especially concerned about money now. Usually conservative ... err thrifty... they focus on the bottom line with even greater acuity than usual. Should you save or spend? Perhaps it’s just a matter of doing your fiscal homework, seeking the right advisor or asking the right questions. Whatever the heck it is go out, listen up, get down and cash in!

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Gather your rosebuds and get out there to strut your incomparable stuff this week. It is a great time to begin brash new projects, plant seeds of wild dreams and meet many, many new people. This is no time to be shy and retiring. You are able to make an extraordinary and memorable first impression. And I don’t mean on the living room couch cushion, Gemini.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Although you may have been stressed out by a bad vibe or two,  Now you can bask in a warm light on any intuitive or self sacrificing endeavor. That doesn’t mean that you should spend your time contemplating your navel and wasting time. It means that good charitable deeds now reap good karma. And we can always use a bit of good karma, can’t we Cancer?

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos can’t escape the crowds if they tried. Friends gather ‘round and push the bon temps to an ever increasing roll. It’s time to harness this jolly energy and become a very sociable social director. Pals may even forget all those unintentional foul remarks you made only last week. Ha ha.  Errr they were unintentional ... weren’t they?

Although your professional life may be zig zagging out of control, help is on the way. This week makes even the most pessimistic pinstripped Virgos sit up and smile. You are infused with more confidence and are able to harness your power. Score a few points in preparation for your move into the first class cabin but please remember those of us in coach. Send some champagne to the back rows, will ya?

The world is your oyster this week. The question is - Will you ultimately find a big pearl or just a pile of sand? It is up to you.  Libras embark on an exciting new course of study or set out to meet some exotic strangers and learn a thing or two from the experience. But don’t sit around waiting for the mood to strike. You will just wind up just being moody. 

Make the most out of the week with a few randy sexcapades.  Scorpios happily dive in the deep end of the hot tub and join in any spicy stew. Bring to a boil. Life is too short to play hard to catch. Personal psychological breakthroughs are also possible if your sex life is overcooked. No matter what, you won’t go home hungry. There is always spiritual nourishment....

If a light has been turned on in relationships, thank the cosmos for the flattering rosy glow. Sagittarians don’t have to put on an act around partners. Set aside all silly games and deal with the reality of the situation. Be yourself, warts and all, and watch as things neatly fall into place. However, if the place happens to be in the background or in the wings, I’d re-evaluate the deal.

Practical Capricorns easily tackle any stressful decisions on the job. The week provides diplomacy, grace, aplomb and a head for details. Bring it on! In fact, any distasteful onerous task you undertake goes smoothly. Be warned - the more work you take on, the more you will have. Stress builds. Find creative ways to ease your stress any way you can. Exercise? Oh okay...

Inspiration strikes! Whip it into a raging fire. Lucky Aquarians are feeling randy and ready to have fun. Drill into your most creative wells and see what spurts. Chances are you may gush with aptitude. Let people talk. They are just jealous! Even calculated risks pay off but remember the old adage; bears and bulls make money, but pigs lose their shirts. Oink.

Create a warm and loving home environment this week. Pisces are tempted to shut out the entire world and retreat into their safe room but don’t snuggle alone. Invite a few compadres over to stoke your home fires. Also any family issues can be resolved to your satisfaction now. Mutual respect is the goal of the day. Unless it is with that snooty you-know-who.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of May 18, 2012

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of May 18-24, 2012:

3, 7, 8, 20, 23, 37, 59, 77


There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month

2012 Venus Retrograde

Venus retrogradeHere is a great post on the Venus retrograde for 2012 from the amazing astrologer Felissa Rose. Please visit her website for more information.

Venus will go retrograde on May 15 at 10:30 am EDT at 23 degrees 59 minutes of Gemini.  It turns direct June 27 at 11:06 am EDT at 7 degrees 29 minutes of Gemini.

As the mythological goddess of love, the planet Venus governs all relationships – romantic, platonic, aesthetic, and diplomatic.  Its influence is to beautify, harmonize and soften.  Without Venus there would be less refinement and more coarseness in our lives.

During this retrograde the things Venus influences will be less evident or of diminished interest in the world. Considerably lessened is the importance of our visual sense.  People dress with less flair.  One’s color sense tends to be muted.  Now is not the time to purchase clothes or jewelry, experiment with new make-up or change your hair styles or color. Those bad hair days are more frequent as well as the feeling of “just not looking right.”Don’t feel out of place if you go to a social occasion and wind up wearing the wrong thing.  Overdressed or underdressed you won’t be alone

When Venus is retrograde people are less focused on worldly beauty and harmony.  Try and avoid opening an artistic or musical show, as individuals are less in touch with the outer expression of beauty and creativity.  There’s more of a tendency to favor trashy entertainment especially some of the TV reality shows. Any of the Real Housewives series would qualify both in content and frequently in dress.  Social relationships are likely to proceed at a slower pace and you’re more apt to attend parties where everyone arrives late and leaves early.  Attending a pot luck dinner and bringing an appetizer when entrees are required or bringing an entrée and its all chips and dips. Venus rules diplomacy, so slowdowns in all sorts of negotiations can be expected, including labor contracts, legal matters and world diplomacy.  Individuals and nations just won’t get it “right,” as peace negotiations and cooperation will be even more difficult to achieve.

If you began a relationship before the retrograde it would be a great time to let it develop  slowly and get to know each other.  

While Venus is retrograde avoid elective cosmetic surgery.  A better time is when Venus is stationary, right before it goes retrograde for any kind of aesthetic procedure or beauty treatment.

When a planet is retrograde its energy is internalized and this is an excellent time to seek the beauty of the inner being by opening oneself up to spiritual harmony with such practices as meditation and relaxation. 

Individuals born with this position often seek internal meaning in both beauty and harmony.  They feel it’s not just how wearing a piece of jewelry looks but what is its inner meaning in doing so.  For example, does a gemstone have a special vibration and does it have healing properties?  Venus retrograde at birth doesn’t negate artistic awareness it just increases the inner stimulus for creativity.

Venus retrograde in the sign of Gemini, ruler of information and communication as well as the transmission of thoughts creates the need to choose one’s words carefully.  Disharmony in communication can be a problem. Try and think before speaking so as not to unintentionally verbally wound the one you’re speaking with.

When a planet is stationary, the period it is either about to go retrograde or direct in motion, its effects are intensified.  About a week or so either way, the world wakes up to Venus.  There can be a buying spree, increased releases of new musical material, a rash of parties and socializing, as well as the onset and development or romantic relationships.  Progress can be made in the resolution of differences between individuals and nations.

Venus goes retrograde approximately every year and a half.  The next one begins on December 21, 2013 and ends January 31, 2014,
