The moon spends the day in curious Gemini. Gemini gets bored pretty easily so always is looking for something interesting!

The moon makes a square to Neptune which peaks at 1:15 AM. This should help us to sleep and dream more deeply.

The moon opposes Saturn at 12:10 PM. We could consider this a test. A test of our emotions, a test of our resolve, a test of our own personal foundation. If you feel like this test is too hard don’t worry, this too shall pass, and quickly enough, too!

Our next aspect is a sextile from the moon to Uranus which is exact at 4:30 PM. This aspect energizes us and gives up a bounce on our step. We may feel like cutting out of work or school early and playing a little instead of working. Uranus likes to skae things up and get us out of our routine.

The moon makes a square to Jupiter at 10:02 PM which is often an aspect that leads us to overindulge in food or drink. Call it emotional eating or emotional drinking, we want to fee better and if food or drink will help we will give it a try!

Venus enters Aquarius at 11:17 PM. Debbie Kempton-Smith in “Secrets From a Stargazer’s Notebook” calls Venus in Aquarius “demented”. I have this placement in my natal chart and I tend to agree. It means that when you like someone instead of trying to get close to that person you tend to run away and give them the cold shoulder instead! How is that for attraction? Anyone who has strong air in their chart should be able to relate to this feeling to some extent but Venus in Aquarius is probably the worst of the bunch … I like you so I am going to stay as far away from you as I can!

If you read our tapestry reports you know that Starlene and I (it’s me, Nikki!) both have Aquarius birthdays. In astrology your birthday is called your “solar return” and it is the point where the sun returns to the exact place in the sky that it was at the moment of your birth. It is very popular to get a solar return reading around the time of your birthday each year to see what lies ahead for the coming year. It is my solar return today, even though my birthday was yesterday (still Nikki here) and it can be a very interesting way to get an astrology reading! So if you are interested in astrology, or solar returns, both Starlene and I do those types of readings by request in our private readings. I also do them by email. If you do even want an astrology reading please make sure you have your correct birth time, date and place so we can be as reliable as possible in our readings for you!

The morning has the moon still in Taurus which has us awakening slowly and peacefully. Taurus moon makes me think of that morning stretch that feels so good and awakens you into your physical body. Do yourself a favor and do that this morning, your body will love you for it!

Early in the morning the moon makes a square to the sun at 2:46 AM. This has us needing to have patience with each other, especially those of the opposite sex. Just remember if tense feelings come up, this aspect is a fast moving one so don’t press any situation and just let things ride and talk about them later.

At 5:54 AM the moon makes a trine to Venus which has us feeling a lot calmer and more harmonious than earlier in the morning. This is a beautiful energy to start the Monday morning with so enjoy the pleasant time this morning.

Next the moon ingresses into the sign of Gemini at 9:35 AM. This is where lady luna is at her most curious! You may notice yourself feeling a bit restless and filled with child-like wonder. Now is a great time to communicate, write letters, answer phone calls and take short trips. The one caution of the Gemini moon is to not get too scattered! Lady luna hangs in the sign of Gemini until she moves into the sign of Cancer on Wednesday afternoon.

The last aspect of the day is when the moon makes a harmonious trine to Mercury at 1:36 PM. This is the time when our thoughts and feelings are in sync. You will make good decisions at this time too.

Tigers eye is a great gemstone to help with balancing your energies during the day today.

Blue Tansy would be a calming essential oil that will help you with opening up your heart chakra and expressing yourself.

And a bit of special news for today ~~~~

Today is Nikki Rich’s birthday – Happy Solar Return!
Stop by her room on Oranum and say Happy Birthday to her!

XOXO ~ Starlene

Sunday February 14, 2016 –Venus-MarsFinsandFansWEBSITEnikki

Happy Valentine’s Day! First let me say that I absolutely love Valentine’s Day! But second let me say that I also think Valentine’s Day is given too much weight. I love the idea of people being able to freely show their affection and do something special for their loved ones but the pressure many people feel to “perform” on Valentine’s Day is unfortunate. Let’s make the most of this one and let the pressure go.

The moon spends the day in Taurus which is an excellent placement for Valentine’s Day. The moon is considered exalted in Taurus since Taurus offers stability to the otherwise changeable moon. Taurus offers that sense of stability and grounding that our emotions often lack. It gives us a feeling of safety and contentment.

The moon makes a supportive trine to Pluto which peaks at 10:27 AM. This aspect, while short in duration, gives us additional security for expressing our emotions, even those emotions that may have been hiding. So if you are a secret admirer this is the time to reveal your secret! This aspect does help provide some courage to reveal those feelings.

Our next aspect is a trine from the moon to Jupiter which peaks at 6:13 PM. This aspect is what I would describe as “generosity of feeling”. We feel safe expressing ourselves and we want to share with others how we feel. Perfect for a day like today!

The last aspect of the day is an opposition fro the moon to Mars which is exact at 7:13 PM. If there is any tension today it is linked to this aspect. It is kind of a date night aspect, like let’s get out and do something! Dancing would not be out of the question, or would sex! Try to add something active to your date night like a walk or some other physical activity to take advantage of the good side of this aspect. On the negative side it can show up as arguments so making an effort to channel the energy in a positive way is probably worth it today!

A great stone to work with today is rose quartz which resonates with the heart chakra and is that beautiful pink color which makes us think of love and friendship.

An essential oil to try today is geranium which is soothing, nurturing and helps us feel safe in expressing our feelings.

The first aspect today is when the moon comes to a square to Mercury at 5:32 AM. This has us feeling some tension when we speak. Things that we communicate from the heart may be very difficult and challenging for us right now. After this aspect the moon moves into a tiny void-of-course phase.

At 6:36 AM Lady Luna ingresses into the sign of Taurus. This is where she will stay until Monday. Taurus moon is comfortable and enjoys staying in the same place. A lot of change is more of a challenge for us when the moon is in Taurus, we want to stay where things are comfortable and the same. Taurus moon activities are good foods, familiar friends, art, beauty and sensuality.

In the early evening Mercury ingresses into the sign of Aquarius at 5:43 PM. This is where Mercury feels electric and not afraid to communicate the unusual and quirky. Mercury will hang in Aquarius for the next several weeks. This gives us all an opportunity to speak the uniqueness of ourselves during this time.

Mars makes s sextile to Jupiter at 5:59 PM today. This gives us an energy and good fortune. You might want to go out, explore the world or do something fun under this aspect. Mars has us giving energy and Jupiter is fun so have some fun with others now!

The last aspect today is when the moon makes a sextile to Neptune at 9:37 PM. This has us feeling creative, intuitive and kind of like floating the rest of the night away. This is a quickly passing energy so its a nice night to get to sleep early and enjoy the rest of your evening.

Jasper would be an excellent gemstone to work with today. Allowing you to feel grounded in yourself but not so much that you can not enjoy the lively energy of this time.

A good oil for today is cinnamon which helps us feel more powerful. Cinnamon also provides beneficial energy and practicality to help with some of the other energies of the day.

The moon spends the day in fiery and independent Aries. The moon in Aries has a sense of adventure and likes to keep things moving! Aries would rather take action than let things get boring!

Early morning the moon makes a trine to Saturn at 5:35 AM which is a supportive aspect that helps us feel more safe and emotionally secure. Saturn does aid us in this way, especially when we embrace Saturnian values such as responsibility, hard work, maturity and ethics.

The moon makes a square to Pluto which peaks at 8:02 AM which can bring up some hidden anger or buried emotions. If you find this difficult or bothersome it will pass soon enough so take some deep breaths and trust that processing these buried feelings is for the best in the long run, even if it hard to do at the time.

The moon and Uranus meet in a conjunction at 9:50 AM. This is exciting! And I mean literally. Uranus is the planet of spontaneity and excitement so it puts a little bit of the unexpected into our day! Hope you are willing to have something unusual happen!

The sun and moon are sextile at exactly 8:10 PM. We had the new moon earlier this week so we can see this in the sky as a small crescent moon, waxing but still small. As the moon waxes we have the opportunity to build things in our lives so this is the time to invest in your goals.

For the final aspect of the day the moon and Venus square each other which peaks at 10:15 PM. I call this aspect one of yearning … we yearn for more vital connections, deeper relationships. If we don’t feel like we have those things in our lives we often try to substitute something else like food for what it is we feel we lack.

A great stone to use today is coral which we can use to help develop our spiritual side and investigate our mystical connection as well.

And essential oil to work with today is pine which helps us develop our tenacity.

The moon moves out of her void-of-course phase and into the sign of Aries this morning at 4:55AM. Aries moon has us feeling bold and action orientated. It gives us energy to get things moving and started, so if you have some projects that need some energy, use this momentum well!

The rest of the day is a “free day” where we have no aspects! So enjoy the nice energy of the Aries moon and see you tomorrow!

The gemstone suggested for today is clear quartz to give clarity and inspiration.

The essential oil suggestion today is patchouli which helps ground and balance you.

Wednesday February 10, 2016 –Mercury2CirclesEntwinedORANUMnikki

The moon spends the day in easy-going Pisces. Pisces is known for its urge to merge with something larger than themselves … mind body and spirit.

Venus and Jupiter make a lovely trine which is exact at 2:54 AM. Even though this aspect peaks early we should be able to feel all day long, and probably yesterday, too! Venus-Jupiter aspects are ones full of big love, generous heart, kind-hearted laughter and feeling indulgent toward those we care about. There is a natural optimism with Jupiter involved so that helps us to feel vibrant and like we have luck on our side.

There is a long series of lunar aspects today and I just want to say that lunar aspects come and go rather quickly, like our moods. In fact, the moon is tied strongly to our moods so if you are feeling out of sorts you can know that our emotions, like the moon, are quickly changeable.

The moon makes a square to Saturn which peaks at 3:59 AM. This is tense and we could feel a little lonely and like things just don’t work out for us. But the best thing to do if you do feel this way is to sit down and create a plan. Saturn appreciates planning.

The moon and Pluto are sextile at 6:33 AM. This aspect allows us to safely process out deeper feelings. Sometimes things come up, emotionally, seemingly out of nowhere, and the truth is that we have been burying that feeling for too long. Moon-Pluto helps to uncover those buried feelings and process them in order to let them go.

Next we have the moon and Mars making a lovely trine which peaks at 11:55 AM. This aspect is usually one that gives us energy and motivation to work on our goals whether that is for a good workout or a work project or something else, Motivation and drive is here … take advantage of it while it lasts!

At 2:55 PM the moon and Jupiter oppose each other. I would call this an aspect of excess. Too much emotion, too much food, too much drink, too much too much too much! If you are trying to refrain from something be careful at this time!

The moon and Venus make a sextile aspect at 4:07 PM. This, with the last aspect, is an echo of the Venus-Jupiter aspect we started out with earlier today. It is called a translation of light from Jupiter to Venus and it gives us that feeling of generosity and good spirits that we started the day off with. But again, beware of overdoing the food and drinks!

Our last aspect of the day is a sextile from the moon to Mercury which peaks at 11:25 PM after which the moon goes void-of-course. The moon-Mercury aspect helps our thoughts and feelings be in alignment instead of conflicting with each other. It feels good to be able to think and feel the same way about an issue!

A good stone to work with today is chrysoprase which helps to instill a sense of grace, something which we could all use more!

An essential oil I would recommend is cardamom which helps give us courage.
