The Venus Return

The Venus Return is similiar to the Lunar Return and the Solar Return charts. It is calculated for the precise moment that Venus will return to it's exact Natal Position and for your location at the time of the Venus return. Venus will return to its natal position about once a year, however, since Venus occasionally goes retrograde you can have up to three. A Venus return chart is good for the time between the current Venus return and the next one. 

Among other things, Venus rules over money and love and so a Venus Return is a tool used to forecast your upcoming social and romantic life and to a lesser extent financial matters. 

Interpreting the Venus Return 

  1. What is the Ascendant in the Transit Chart?  What House does the Transit Ascendant fall in your Natal Chart? This will give you an idea of how you approach matters of love and money in the coming year and the area of life that will be of more importance or more affected by the Venus Return. 
  2. What is the Chart Ruler and what house does it occupy in the Transit Chart? 
  3. What sign is on the descendent? How does the Natal Ascendant aspect the Transit Ascendant? If they connect in a friendly way, i.e. by trine or sextile, a relationship can form. However, if they connect by square or opposition forming a relationship will be more difficult. 
  4. What house does Transit Venus occupy in the transit chart? 
  5. What aspects are made between Transit Venus and the Natal Chart (since Venus occupies the same place in both charts, the aspects made between Natal Venus and planets in the Transit Chart will be the same). 
  6.  Are there any planets on the four angles?
  7. Do any natal planets occupy the angles in the return chart? 
  8. Are any planets in the return chart  at the critical degrees of either 0° or 29°? 

Interpreting the Venus Return, An Example

In this example, we will be looking at the Venus Return chart of actor Joaquin Phoenix (Libra Sun, Aries Moon, Virgo Rising) who is gaining a lot of notoriety right now for his portrayal of the Joker in the 2019 film of the same name. As near as I can tell, Joaquin was in Hollywood California on the day of his Venus Return and that is the location for which I generated his Venus Return chart. 

The first thing I notice here is that the Ascendant for both his Natal Chart and his Venus Return Chart are the same, which is Virgo.  He can come across as methodical, refined, and intellectual.  He has an analytical mind and a discriminating nature. He can be nervous and restless at times and she and undemonstrative at other. Virgo is ruled by Mercury which occupies the second house.  This tells me that in matters of love, and to a lesser degree money, it is important that he remain humble and not allow his success go to this head. He may strive for perfection in his relationships and in his work and will most likely be his own worst critic.  The chart ruler, Mercury, in the second house indicates that he will need to exercise patience in his relationships and in his interactions with others (especially interviews!)  He may also be motivated to have more security and comfort and may not be inclined this year to do anything too out-of-the-ordinary in order to have it.  

With a Virgo / Pisces axis (Ascendant / Descendant) he comes across as organized, reserved and methodical. However, in terms of romance he can be a shy and quiet dreamer. He is attracted to someone who has the qualities of sensitivity, artistic, creative, and compassionate. With the Natal Ascendant opposite the Transit Descendent he and his partner can find one another physically attractive but he may tend to see his partner as needing to be corrected, improved, or refined and she may feel that he needs to be less critical and more open to the invisible. 

With Venus in the 3rd house (transit and natal) he may be looking for more mental stimulation in his relationships this year. The third house rules Gemini (the twins) and so it is possible that he may find himself attracted to two people at the same time. He could meet this person while traveling, online, or through a sibling or even a neighbor. 

Transit Venus makes no major aspects (Ptolemaic) to natal planets. However, transit Venus does make a quincunx to the natal Moon can bring a increased need for love and affection. Nonetheless it also creates friction between the subject and his loved one. This cause for this can be a lack of reciprocation between partnesr ---- the amount of love received does not equal the amount given. This could be the impetus for seeking love outside his current relationship as indicated by Venus transiting the 3rd house. 

The subject has Jupiter in the angular fourth house and both Neptune and the Moon in the angular 7th house. Jupiter in the fourth house can indicate a need for more harmony and stability. This desire can lead to attempts to improve familiar relationships. 

The Moon and Neptune in the 7th house can be an indication that indicate an emotional desire to work on relationships, however, the subject may need more love and his attention that his partner can give.  He may attract people who end up hurting him or taking advantage of him in some way.  

Putting it All Together

This chart paints a picture of someone who is a diplomatic, people pleaser who can be aggressive and quick to anger. He is often perceived as organized, methodical, and critical --- of himself and others. He demands perfection out of himself and others. In love he can be dreamy and romantic but tends to be critical and demanding of his partner.  He and his partner may find themselves physically attracted to one another but lack compatibility in other more substantive areas.

It will be important that he exercise patience in all his dealings (in both love and money) during this transit. He wants more security, more comfort, and more love. Rather than trying something new to increase his finances or improve his relationships, he should refrain from trying anything new but rather stick to traditional, more proven methods.

He may find that he needs more love than his partner can give.  He may feel that he loves his partner more than she loves him and so he may find himself seeking mental stimulation from someone else. He may meet someone while traveling, online, or through a friend or neighbor who he will find attractive and who will give him the mental stimulation that he desires.  He may find that he attracts people who deceive him or who do not have his best interests at heart. This person may hurt him or otherwise take advantage of him. This is a karmic lesson that he is being presented with to be more discriminating in love and not go all in too quickly. Generally, the subject wishes to improve his familial relationships (all kinds) so as to have more harmony and stability.

Full Moon in Aries 2019

Full Moon in Libra 
10/13/19 2:07 PM (Pacific) 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon occupy the same degree of opposing houses. As you can see from the chart above, the Sun is at 20° Libra and the Moon is at 20° Aries forming an opposition making this a Full Moon.

The Big Picture 

The Sun is transiting the relationships sector of the chart while the fiery Aries Moon is lending power to our sense of individuality.

When the Moon is new, we can expect new things in our lives. However, the Full moon is the domain of endings. The Full Moon in Aries is interesting because, being the first sign of the zodiac, it is associated with beginnings. Aries rules the self, so with the Full Moon in Aries this is a time in which we can re-evaluate the self and our priorities in life.  This is a time to let go of negative or unwanted aspects of our self and identity so that we can grow and evolve.  This can also be a time in which people generally feel like they need more attention and they can go a little overboard in how they try to get that attention.  Aries is ruled by Mars and so we can also be a little more quicker to anger. Mars is making a sextile to Jupiter at the time of the Full Moon new ideas are open to us, we can follow a new path and we have the energy we need to pursue our goals. 

Whereas Aries is all about the self and our personal needs, Libra is all about our relationships and connection to others With the Moon in Aries and the Sun in Libra there is a divide between what we want and what the other in our lives need from us. The Moon is making a square to Pluto adding to the emotional tug of war between the ego of "me" and the partnership of "us".  This is a time in which we may want to spend more time alone with our selves and less time with our partners causing friction in our relationships. 

This is a pattern that we will see play out in world events, on social media in the lives of our friends and followers, and in our own lives.  

The Personal Touch 

To better understand how the Full Moon in Aries will affect you, you need to look at the natal houses Aries and Virgo occupy in your birth chart. For example, Aries occupies my 6th house while Libra rules by twelfth setting up. The 6th house rules our routines, work, and service to others while the 12th house is all about escape and withdrawal so for me there is a divide between being useful to others and doing what I want to do. 

With the Full Moon in my natal 6th house, areas of health and work become a concern.  This is a good time to refine and improve any diet or exercise program. Let go of what is not working and try to figure out something else that works better.   

Transit Uranus making an opposition to my natal Moon can manifest as an inability to rein in my emotions and my desire for change may even seem irrational. This is balanced somewhat by Transit Pluto making a trine to my Natal Sun granting a new sense of personal power in my life and that I have more control over any changes that happen to me or in my life.   

How to Work with Full Moon in Aries Energy 

  • Finish old projects before starting new ones. 
  • Take a personal inventory of self and choose one aspect of your personality you don't like and make an effort to eliminate that quality,  mode of thought or behavior. 
  •  Decide what you like about yourself and work on expanding and accentuating those qualities. 
  • Spend some time on self-care, whatever that means to you. Get your hair or nails done, treat yourself to a nice meal, buy a new outfit.  
  • Take your relationships to the next level or break if off completely if you don't think it's going to go anywhere. 
  • Let go of the past. 
  • Study  your own Natal Chart.

Venus in Scorpio 2019

Venus in Scorpio 
October 8th, 2019 10:06 AM  (Pacific) 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

Venus rules Taurus which is 180° from Scorpio therefore Venus is said to be in detriment in Scorpio What this means is that it's power is diminished, it is cut off from it's usual resources and will need to learn how to adapt in order to fulfill its urges. Venus' urge is to love and be loved, to have affection, comfort, and security. Generally speaking when Venus is in Scorpio people are more intense and passionate about romance, sex, sensuality, security, and mysteries. They want these things but have trouble attracting them, they try too hard, they put themselves in vulnerable positions and things may or may not work out for them. 

Where Scorpio falls in your natal chart is the area of life where Venus in Scorpio will be felt most. 

* If Aries is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 8th House
* If Taurus is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 7th House
* If Gemini is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 6th House
* If Cancer is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 5th House
* If Leo is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 4th House
* If Virgo is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 3rd House
* If Libra is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 2nd House
* If Scorpio is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 1st House
* If Sagittarius is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 12th House
* If Capricorn is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 11th House
* If Aquarius is your rising sign, the Scorpio is your 10th House
* If Pisces is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 9th House 


Venus in Scorpio and the 1st House

The first house is all about you: what I want, what I need. With Venus in the First house you want to love, to be loved, to have security, and to experience comfort and luxury. Scorpio adds an intensity to the desire to love and be loved.  You are drawn to anyone who is dark, mysterious, and who has the potential to give you the sense of security that you desire. However, since Venus is in detriment in Scorpio you may also try too hard, you may come across as too needy, too clingy, or too possessive which may cause anyone you direct your attention and interest toward to pull away from you.

In addition to house placement, you will also want to look at any aspects formed between Venus in 0° Scorpio and any other planets in your natal chart. For example. Transit Venus in 0° Scorpio is making a square to my Natal Jupiter in 02° Aquarius.  When Venus is square to Jupiter, you encounter obstacles in  regards to making love grow. For this reason you may compensate by overindulging in food or drink (pleasure of the senses) or buying things that you really don't need or which do not bring the satisfaction that you thought it would.  Laziness can also a result of Venus square Jupiter. 

Where does Venus in Scorpio fall in your chart, what aspects (if any) does it make to your natal planets and how will it manifest for you?

Mars in Libra 2019

Mars in Libra 
10/3/2019 9:22 PM (Pacific) 
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

Mars represents our drives and Libra rules over relationships of all kinds (business partnerships, friendships, and romantic or sexual relationships). When Mars enters Libra people are generally driven to have more companionship and they are willing to compromise and negotiate to get that commitment. The shadow side of this is that they can be more apt to enter too hastily into relationships and give up more than they will receive in order to have commitment (especially men). 

Where Libra falls in your natal chart is the area of life where Mars in Libra will most be felt in your life. 

  • If your rising sign is Aries, Libra is your 7th house 
  • If your rising sign is Taurus, Libra is your 6th house
  • If your rising sign is Gemini, Libra is your 5th house
  • If your rising sign is Cancer, Libra is your 4rd house.
  • If your rising sign is Leo, Libra is your 3rd house 
  • If your rising sign is Virgo, Libra is your 2nd house. 
  • If your rising sign is Libra, Libra is your 1st house 
  • If your rising sign is Scorpio, Libra is your 12th house 
  • If your rising sign is Sagittarius, Libra is your 11th house 
  • If your rising sign is Capricorn, Libra is your 10th house 
  • If your rising sign is Aquarius, Libra is your 9th house 
  • If your rising sign is Pisces, Libra is your 8th house. 


Mars in Libra and the 12th House 

With Mars (I act) in Libra (I balance) in the 12th house of secrets, endings and that which is hidden can translate to I am driven to act diplomatically in terms of ending relationships.  With Mars in Libra and the 12th House you can find people to be draining right now. For this reason, you are driven to be alone and spend more time in quiet reflection. In order to have more alone time, you might negotiate for it or make compromises in order to have more solitude. 

In addition to the ingress of Mars into Libra, you would also want to look at any aspects formed between Mars in 0° Libra and planets in your natal chart. For example Mars in 0° Libra is forming a conjunction to my Natal Pluto in 03° Libra. With Mare conjunct Pluto you are more magnetic and powerful than usual as well as willful and determined.  You are driven to transform something in your life and you now have both the power and will to make it so.

Mercury in Scorpio 2019

Mercury in Scorpio
10/3/2019 1:14 am (Pacific)
Natural Chart / Whole Houses 

Mercury rules the mind and our ability to think and Scorpio represents the archetype of the researcher, so the mind is receptive to investigation and research now. When Mercury is in Scorpio people can, generally speaking, be more suspicious and fond of crime and mysteries in general. They can be more passionate and intense in regards to anything that they find themselves curious about or which they do not understand. They may also be more apt to talk about sex and sexual needs (especially with their partner).

From personal experience, I can say that I met a man online shortly after Mercury entered Scorpio and we have a very long conversation about what we are looking for in a partner, mostly sexually, what our boundaries are, and what we would like to explore about ourselves sexually. 
The natal house Scorpio occupies in your birth chart is the area of life where Mercury in Scorpio will be felt. 

* If Aries is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 8th House
* If Taurus is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 7th House
* If Gemini is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 6th House
* If Cancer is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 5th House
* If Leo is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 4th House
* If Virgo is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 3rd House
* If Libra is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 2nd House
* If Scorpio is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 1st House
* If Sagittarius is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 12th House
* If Capricorn is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 11th House
* If Aquarius is your rising sign, the Scorpio is your 10th House
* If Pisces is your rising sign, then Scorpio is your 9th House


Mercury in Scorpio and the 1st House

With Mercury in Scorpio and the First House, all that passion and intensity for research and investigation is turned on the self. Your mind is clearer and more astute now and you are driven to explore yourself and figure out who you are. You're more talkative and are likely to strike up conversations with others and you learn about yourself through your interactions with others and their perception of you.

In addition to the ingress of Mercury in Scorpio, you would also want to look at any aspects formed between Mercury and the planets in your Natal Chart.

* Any planets around 0-2° +/- Scorpio will form a Conjunction
* Any planets around 0-2° +/- Virgo or Capricorn will form a Sextile
* Any planets around 0-2° +/- Leo or Aquarius will form a Square
* Any planets around 0-2° +/- Cancer or Pisces will form a Trine
* Any planets around 0-2° +/- Taurus will form an opposition

For example, in my own Natal Chart I have Jupiter in 2° Aquarius meaning that Mercury is making a Square to Neptune. When Mercury (I think) is Square (Hard Aspect) to Jupiter (I Expand) you may experience thinking and behavior that is considered over-the-top and you may have trouble reigning yourself in. Any decisions that need to be made should be well thought out before committing yourself to any options.

Pluto Direct October 2019

I talked about Pluto Retrograde in a previous post. Today, I want to share some insights into Pluto Direct. Pluto's mantra is "I Transform" but it would probably be more accurate to say that it is "Change or be changed". What this means is that we can make friends with change, accept it, and ride the wave of cosmic energies; or we can swim against the universal current fighting change every step of the way with every ounce of strength that we have. Our attitude towards change can have a direct effect on how we experience this retrograde. 

During Pluto Retrograde we were given the opportunity to examine our sense of personal power. In order to appreciate something, we often have to lose it or otherwise have it taken from us. The natal house where Capricorn falls in your chart is the area of life most affected by Pluto Retrograde. This is the area of life in which you may have felt that you had a lack of power or control. For example, in my day job I work in an office environment. My job requires me to build and maintain relationships with affiliates in my industry who we depend upon for work. Some of my affiliates I get along quite well with and others I do not. 

Capricorn falls in the 3rd house in my natal chart. The third houses rules over communication and short journeys. In addition the 3rd house is ruled by Mercury the planet of communication and travel (again, I work in the moving industry).  The majority of my communication with our affiliates is via email and some by phone.  I am a very direct person, I don't "fluff" my emails or my conversations. My goal is to give/receive the information needed or requested as quickly as possible and get off the phone or end the email chain so I can move on to my next task. For example. I hate the small "pleasantries" that precede a conversation such as "How are you today?" (this is a question that I usually answer quickly but fail to reciprocate). Communicating with others (at work), especially on the phone,  is an area of life where I feel powerless because I cannot speak freely as I would like to.  For this reason, I have had to learn to change the way I communicate with others. 

Now that Pluto will be stationing direct, I will be presented with the opportunities to show what I have learned about that way in which I communicate with others. If I can successfully change my communication style I will have shown that I am capable of growth and self-improvement. If not, Pluto will see to it that I am forced to transform (change or be changed). 

Where does Capricorn fall in your Natal Chart and how did Pluto Retrograde affect you?

October Horoscopes 2019

October 2019 Horoscopes 

Aries: Your focus this month is on the "other" in your life, either your romantic partner, business partner, or maybe even  a friend. You're more selfless now and put their needs above your own. You want to get along with them and so you're more willing to compromise and allow this other in your life to shine while you quietly support them from the background.   

Taurus: Your work is your main point of drive and focus this month and your health is either helped or hindered by how you feel about the job that you are doing. Don't be too hard of yourself, just do the best you can.  You're known for being patient and dependable and while you can focus on the minute details of any aspect of your work - the big picture may escape you at the moment.  

Gemini- You're all about having fun this month and where there's fun to be had you're determined to have it and life to the fullest. Work is of little to no interest you right now and may be more interested in socializing, dating, or taking part in your hobbies and other interests. You feel more creative now and are move to express yourself in new and creative ways. 

Cancer- You're more of a home body this month preferring to stick close to home rather than going out with others or socializing.  You're want to draw closer to your family and loved one and spend more quality time with them strengthening your family ties. You may also be interested in making your house as "homey" and comfortable as possible so that it is a place of rest and comfort for you.

Leo- You naturally draw attention to yourself, but this month you're much more animated and dramatic than usual. You are as interested in getting to know others as you want them to get to know you. You chat people up everywhere you go and the idea of exchanging thoughts and ideas with them excites and energizes you. However, you can get easily distracted and have a hard time giving your attention and interest to just one person or subject.

Virgo-   You're concerned about your money and your financial security this month. While this is a good month for making the most of opportunities to improve your finances, you worry about not having enough money. The more money you have, the more secure you feel; and the more money you have, the more you are likely to spend. This is a good time to review and adjust your budget in such as way that you can strike a balance between spending and saving.

Libra- You're more in touch with who you are this month. This is a good time for putting yourself first, practicing self-care, and taking care of your own needs, wants, and desires. You have more energy, confidence, and self esteem. You may feel like making positive changes to your appearance such as trying a new hairstyle or dressing differently; or you may change the way you interact with others.

Scorpio- You're more mysterious and brooding than usual this month. You keep your thoughts and ideas to yourself for now and melt into the background allowing those around you to take centerstage. You may spend more time in quite meditation and inner reflection, shining a light on the darker areas of your mind in order to confront and heal psychic trauma and emotional baggage.

Sagittarius- You're feeling selfless this month and want to get involved with the world around you. You want to contribute to making positive changes in a big way. For this reason, you may seek out or join a group or organization whose purpose and ideals align with your own in order to volunteer your time and energy for a cause.

Capricorn- You're focused on your career this month and understand that a good reputation is money in the bank. You not only want to succeed but also want to enjoy to enjoy the spoils of your success. You're not too concerned with the small details right now but can see the big picture in order to make long term plans for your future --- you're figure the rest out along the way.

Aquarius- This month you're interested in your own growth and evolution. You seek out new and unusual people and experiences in order to broaden your horizons.  You fall in love with learning and are introduced to new ways of thinking that changes your perspective on life and the world in exciting and positive ways. You enjoy more healthy debates with other and love not only sharing your own opinion but hearing those of others.

Pisces- You're more withdrawn and reflective this month. You feel the urge to make some profound changes in your life and withdraw in order to figure out what needs to change and how you will go about making these needed changes. You can be more moody and brooding as you sort things out and keep everything to yourself.

New Moon in Libra 2019

New Moon in Libra 
9/28/19 11:26 AM Pacific 
Natural Chart  / Whole Houses 

A new moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon occupy the same degree of the same sign at the same time. As you can see from the above chart both the Sun and the Moon occupy 5° Libra making t his a new moon. 

The Moon Represents What is Happening 

Occurring approximately once every 28 1/2 days, new moons denote the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. New Moons are a great time to initiate any kind of change or to begin attracting anything that is needed or wanted.   Due to the fact that the moon is associated with our emotions, this is often seen as a new emotional cycle. 

Some keywords associated with the moon include, but are not limited to, the following: emotions, feelings, family, change, instincts, reflection, imagination, subconscious, or nurturing.

Libra Represents How It's Happening 
The Astrological Sign in which the New Moon occurs can indicate how this emotional renewal may express itself. Some keywords associated with Libra include: Relationship, Pleaser, Fair-Minded, Diplomat, Idealistic, Impartial, Considerate, Neutral, Indecisive, Flirtatious, Good Taste. People are more interested in commitment and so they tend to avoid anyone who cannot commit themselves to a relationship of some kind (whether platonic, romantic, sexual, or business).  

The New Moon in Libra (General) 

With the New Moon in Libra, relationsjips of all kinds are spotlighted.  Now is a good time to start a new relationship or re-start an old one. You can be more nuturing with your partner now and you examine your concept of "me" vs. "we" giving more weight to the "other" in your life; that is your friends, lovers, or business partners.  Any goals that you set now will require the cooperation of a partner and you're less inclined to do things on your own. 

The House is Where it Happens 
The Astrological House in which the New Moon occurs in your Natal Chart gives an indication of the area of life activated by the New Moon and where you can expect to see the energy of the New Moon in Virgo to play out. Since the September New Moon occurs in 6° Virgo, you would look at your Natal, or Birth Chart to ascertain in what House 6° Virgo occurs.  

The Twelve Houses of Life 

  1. The self, ego, appearance, initiative, leadership, fresh starts and new beginnings. 
  2. Money and material matters.  Your physical environment, income, money, and your sense of self-esteem. 
  3. Communication in all its forms (thinking, writing, speaking, etc... ) as well as siblings, local travel, teachers and community events. 
  4. Home, privacy, your basic sense of security, your mother, children, and your own ability to nurture others.
  5. Creative expression, drama, attention, love, and romance. 
  6. Health and service to others. Your routine, diet, exercise and helpfulness to others. 
  7. Marriage, partnerships, and relationships of all kinds.  Contracts, business deals, etc... 
  8. Birth, death, sex, other people's money and property. 
  9. Expansion, the higher mind, foreign matters (languages, cultures, travel) luck, adventure, risk, philosophy, ethics and morals. 
  10. The public, fame, honors, reputation, awards, boundaries, rules, discipline, authority, the father. 
  11. Groups of people such as friends and associations, networking, social justice.  Originality, sudden unexpected events, invention, surprises, and all things futuristic.
  12. Endings. Completion, tying up loose ends, old age, karma, making amends, and the afterlife. Imagination, creativity, poetry, and the subconscious mind. 

New Moon in Libra and the 12th House 

With the New Moon (I feel) in Libra (I balance) in the 12th house of the hidden, secrets, and endings can translate to I feel renewed, envigorated and balanced when I express my hidden feelings with my partner. This is a good time to talk to your partner about your hidden fears and anxieties regarding your relationship so that you can discuss them rationally and put any worries behind you. 


Another facet of examing how the New Moon in Libra will affect your personally involves comparing the new moon chart to your natal chart and dissecting any aspects formed between the new Moon and other planets in your chart.  When I overlay the new moon chart over my natal chart, I see that the new moon is making a conjunction to my natal Mercury enhancing my ability to more eloquently communicate my feelings and emotions. 

The new moon making a sextile to my natal Neptune nurtures a more compassionate emotional nature. The New moon forming a trine to my natal Jupiter allows me to be more sincere and genuine in how I express my emotions. Finally the new moon making a square to my natal north node can indicate obstacles getting over a past hurt. 

Where does the New Moon in Libra  fall in your natal chart and how will it manifest for you?
