The Sun began its transit through the determined, aggressive, shrewd, secretive sign of Scorpio today, 10/23, at 1:47 PM EDT ... we are now being directed to turn inward to face truths about ourselves and what lies beneath  - "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH" - OR CAN YOU ??? ... this energy can be extremely driven but also highly transforming ... being a water sign, you can bet the emotions will become a constant determining ingredient in many of our actions now as opposed to the mental approach of the air sign of Libra ... this energy needs to shine passionately, through its power and resourcefulness, through seeking recognition for its penetration, and maybe through being in the limelight through a compulsive persistence ... Scorpio is rarely passive or neutral about anything ... jealousy, being resentful and vengeance are often expressed through this deep, quite private and reserved energy ... recuperative powers are quite remarkable ... here we have the energy of the truth-seeker who uses keen judgement coupled with penetrating insight which ultimately may empower one to exercise a great deal of authority over others ... science, medicine or any field of investigation could attract one ... willpower and persistence are key factors, and even though one may become rather reticent, when pushed one becomes very outspoken and extremely direct ... Scorpio may forgive but it NEVER forgets !!!

In some some ways, even though this energy can be very heavy and challenging at times, it might just be a welcome relief of sorts to be moving on from so much Libra influenced planetary energy in view of the recent upheavals due to the Venus retrograde from 7/25 - 9/6 followed by the final Mercury retrograde in Libra, which is ruled by Venus, period for 2015 from 9/17 - 10/9 !!!

Scorpio is a feminine/fixed/water sign ... it is the 8th sign of the natural zodiac ... its key phrase is "I Desire" and its keyword is "Intensity" ... anatomically it rules the genitals - Scorpio born are often susceptible to infections of the urinary system and venereal disease ... in addition the inclination towards volatile emotions is the cause of exhaustion and ill health ... Scorpio is the sign directly opposite to Taurus in the natural zodiac ...

Scorpio is the natural ruler of the 8th house whose keyword is "regeneration" ... it is a house of endings ... many things are addressed here such as joint finances, legacies, trusts, wills, taxes, insurance matters, secrets, sex, spiritual and physical regeneration, psychological rebirth, degeneration and death and surgery ... it also shows types of illness ...

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto - a planet representing destroying or reforming urges and fusion ... its keyword is "transformation" ... it governs things which are hidden from view as well as the masses, subversion, crime, phobias, obsessions, slow growth, birth and death, isolation, coercion, disappearance, bacteria and viruses, plumbing and unpopular causes ... its action is slow and inevitable ... if you've had your natal chart run, where you find Pluto is where you'll find complexity and where you'll have to solve problems on your own and without assistance ...

The Sun is in Scorpio is trying to make us aware of how to live our daily lives productively through pursuing what it is we truly desire ... it is the urge to merge with someone or something else ... it is considered the most powerful sign of the zodiac ... it can usually sense what is going on beneath the surface of most situations ... this ability can make one prone to influence, manipulate, corrupt, purge, harm or heal ... this energy is unchallenged in the ability to bring to the surface the cause of trouble - whether it is heartache, disease, financial problems, etc. ... there is a great understanding as to what sex is for and about ... this energy can easily cause us to get under others skin .. there is also a great intimacy with life itself ... the power of Scorpio can appear as a truly magnetic charm making one totally disarming, or it can be downright cruel running over others and striking quite unexpectedly ... there is ability to raise something or someone from the depths or throw them down there ... there are deep and genuine emotions here that are often hidden from the surface ... the greatest gift comes when one is able to let go of the fear and hesitation and allow something or someone in - then there is a magical transformational effect which can lead to great healing ... Scorpio likes total involvement, rooting out hidden causes, being persuasive, meaningful work and the untarnished truth ... it dislikes superficial relationships, only scratching the surface, feeling as though someone got one over on them, demeaning tasks and flattering and flattery ... the energy of the Sun in Scorpio can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: intense, loyal, passionate, faith-inspiring, dynamic, regenerating, compelling, magnetic, penetrating insight, scrutinizing, shrewd, resourceful, compassionate, strong and deep, brave, powerful, healing touch, self-sacrificing, intimate

NEGATIVE: obsessive, possessive, fanatical, emotionally draining, coercive, degrading, forces allegiance, seductive, suspicious, cunning, revengeful, self-punishing, cruel, overly rigid view, corrupt, manipulative, jealous, resentful

The Sun is currently transiting through Scorpio by itself with Mercury to join the party in a little over a week on November 1st/2nd depending on the time zone in which you live ...

HAPPY SOLAR RETURN ALL SCORPIO BORN !!! ... the Sun remains in Scorpio until November 22nd ...

During this solar transit remember, power comes through YOU: hate, and power kills ... love, and power heals ... the greatest strength here is forgiving weakness ... if you look deeply enough into someone or something you may ultimately find yourself and discover your personal power ... then reaching the point where you are no longer after something, you may suddenly realize what it is you are truly after ...

Over  the next 31 days we all have the universal power placed in our hands to produce transformation, change, rebirth and healing in our lives as well as others ... or will we sink to the level of vengeance, cruelty, destruction and ruin ???

On Thursday, August 13th, I became a victim of gross negligence by two Microsoft technicians which ended up causing major damage to my computer. What followed has been an unbelievably exhausting, aggravating, time consuming, and frustrating attempt to get the problem, that was never my fault, properly resolved.

After the first technician gave me incorrect information and as a result caused my computer to begin to malfunction, the second technician, who seemed at a loss for the correct procedure to fix the computer, led me on a "wild goose chase" for nearly 4 hours having me constantly turning off and on the computer, which I knew was probably not good for it, and had me doing things which ultimately only made the situation worse, finally unable to correctly resolve the issue ended up referring me to Level 2 tech support that I was going to have to wait 2 days for a phone call from. I explained to her that I run a business off my computer and that seemed to make no difference to her. The next day when I turned on the laptop it crashed with the screen saying I had to get immediate repair, the boot drive was missing and files had been corrupted. Horrified, I contacted Microsoft again and the technician, who seemed to be much more knowledgeable, suggested I go to the Microsoft store near me and let them try to fix it. So I called, made an appointment and took the damaged computer in the next day.

The technician looked at the computer and, after I told him about the actions of the first two technicians, he just shook his head. He wasn't able to get the computer working so I had to leave it with him and explained I used this for business. He told me it would take about 3-4 days to get it back to me. Later that evening, I got a call from a Level 2 technician supervisor who profusely apologized for what had happened and told me they would take care of me. She also told me that her manager was going to call me back within the hour and talk to me due to the severity of the damage. I never heard another word from Microsoft that weekend !!!

On Monday, I started what would be an agonizing 3 week effort to contact someone in Level 2 tech support to find out what was going on and why I never got a return call from the manager who was supposed to call me back on that Saturday evening. I was calling nearly every day, sometimes 3-4 times a day, and was subjected to multiple employees being abrupt and rude, as several people hung up on me, being constantly transferred to other numbers which proved to be of no help, being told someone would call me back in 2 hours and never receiving a return call, lying to me, telling me to just file a complaint and basically giving me the runaround !!!

While all of this was happening, I had gotten the computer back on Friday, August 21st, nearly a week later rather than 3-4 days quoted but was told it was due to difficulties they had trying to get the operating system re-installed and running correctly. I was horrified when I found out that the majority of the programs had been destroyed and they were only able to recover some files, downloads, pictures and folders. Among the programs destroyed were 15 programs I use for business for which I had paid over $2000 and found out later it was going to cost around $600 to get them back. To add insult to injury, I had to take the computer back to the Microsoft store 6 times over the following week and a half as I was constantly running into issues. I was finally told the last time if they couldn't get it up and running properly, they would just have to put the original operating system on meaning it would be right back to where it was when it was working fine on August 13th before the two technicians negligence caused the damage to occur minus all the programs which had been destroyed !!! I then mentioned that I wanted reimbursement from Microsoft in order to at least replace the 15 programs I used for business. The assistant store manager asked me to supply him a list of the program, what I had paid, and what it would it would cost to replace them saying he would send an e-mail to someone in the company to get that underway. The following week he had not heard back from anyone and, despite having sent him 4 more e-mails, he refused to reply to them and ultimately quit trying to be of any assistance. He just walked away from the issue with no explanation as to why. And that left me wondering if he ever sent an e-mail in the first place to someone higher up to help resolve the issue. The only e-mail I got from him was that there was no response from the message he supposedly sent and that if he had not heard from them when he returns to work in two days he might have another idea. After that, I never heard from him again.

The weekend of September 4th - 6th, I placed over another half dozen calls to Microsoft and was told on Saturday night that the case had been closed the night before by a supervisor in Level 2 tech support with no resolution. He was the third one I had spoken with during that week that told me a manager would call within 2 hours and none of them ever did. I was livid. I got a few more abrupt employees on the phone trying to get someone to return my call and finally, on Sunday afternoon, a very nice lady from Level 2 tech support who was a supervisor said she was so sorry for the way I had been treated and that steps should be taken to correct what had happened. She asked me to send an e-mail to the "wehelp" e-mail address in order to get the attention from the corporate office. I explained to her that I had called the corporate office in Redmond at least 3 times during August and got nowhere as I spoke with people who were very dismissive and kept transferring me around. She apologized for that as well. I sent an e-mail to that address Sunday evening and in less than 24 hours I had gotten a response from Global Escalation Level 3 informing me that someone would call me on Tuesday morning to discuss what had happened and that I would be taken care of this time. I also had left a message on Sunday evening for the manager of the Microsoft store which he would not even extend me the courtesy of returning my call.

I got a call Tuesday morning from Global Escalation and thought at last this will get resolved and I can move on and get my business back up and running completely after nearly a month of being shut down by the original two technicians negligence. But that was not to be the case. Once again I was subjected to being given the runaround, stall tactics, not being told the truth for yet another two and a half weeks. I kept being told they were waiting on responses from the "other" departments investigating where the infractions had occurred and determining what to do. This was insane as they had the case number in front of them and could access it at any time. I repeatedly asked where were these other departments and what were their phone numbers to which I got a response of "we don't know where they are physically located and they have no phones". That was the most absurd thing I had ever heard. By September 21st I had not heard back from the person originally handling this issue since they had told me a week earlier that this could not keep dragging out and it was taking too long to get responses. I was asked to send an e-mail detailing the programs I had lost, what I paid for them, when I paid for them, and the cost to replace which I did that very day. During the next week while I was dealing with corporate again, I was finally contacted again by Global Escalation by at least 4 different people all who wanted to argue with me about the list I submitted regarding the programs yet no one ever addressed the e-mail I was told to send outlining what I expected as compensation and reimbursement. This had become a nightmare !!!

I once again called the corporate office at that point and was told they were taking my information and I was now being referred to Executive Escalation who never even extended me the professional courtesy of e-mailing me or calling me to discuss the matter even though I was told to call back on October 2nd if I had not gotten things settled through Global Escalation. When I called corporate back on the 2nd, the lady informed me that Global was handling the matter and they couldn't escalate my case any further. I asked her why they told me Executive Escalation was going to be handling this and contacting me and how they could just ignore this when I had received no reimbursement and compensation for what had happened. Once again I had been given the runaround, and she ended up transferring my call to some reimbursement department who couldn't do anything so they contacted Global Escalation and told me the manager would call me when he came in to work in about 2 hours. As it turned out the person who called me back was the same person I had been dealing with since September 8th and when I questioned why he told me in a previous phone call there was no manager in this department, I got a runaround answer. He clearly was not the manager.

After several more phone calls from Global Escalation, on the 8th of October I was told they would be glad to offer me $150 in compensation and would be writing it off for "unpleasant support experience". SERIOUSLY - what are they thinking after all the crap I have been drug through the last 2 months and being subjected to aggravation, lost time, lost income, harassment, abuse and being left with a computer that is unstable as I have had multiple issues occurring since I got the computer back at the end of August? This was an absolute insult to my intelligence and a proverbial slap in my face from Microsoft indicating to me they would do what they want and get away with it - UNACCEPTABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL !!!

Monday night, October 12th, I got yet another call from Global Escalation and I was told at this point that the $150 is all that had been approved by the"technical leads" and that they would continue to give me tech support until the machine was working perfectly again. I was also told they were not closing out the case and would just keep checking for updates while an investigation was still ongoing.I have never heard such a load of crap in my life. I cannot believe Microsoft would allow their employees to drag someone through hell like this then turn their backs and expect to get off with only paying out $150. Even the technician Monday night admitted that he had not experienced a case that had taken so long to settle.

So now, after over 3 months of great mental, emotional and physical stress in the effort to get this situation fixed, I am currently left with a computer that is unstable, 15 programs I use for business still not replaced, constantly finding other programs that were wiped out due to the original two technicians negligence, and losing a lot of potential income as a result !!! The really pathetic and unbelievable thing about this entire incident is that it involved an issue that Microsoft had been completely aware of since they began releasing Windows 10 in July, so certainly the technicians on August 13th had no excuse not to know what was going on. To make matters worse, I had been told by the assistant manager at the Microsoft store #56 where I took the computer that I probably didn't want to hear it, but had the phone technicians simply referred me to them to bring the computer to, the issue could have been resolved in about 15 - 20 minutes !!!

MICROSOFT - just because you are a multi-billion dollar corporation does not mean you can treat people like trash and not take responsibility for the damaged caused by negligent actions of your employees. Furthermore, the fact that you would allow your employees to act so unprofessionally with such disregard to a customer requesting urgent help for an issue that was NEVER their fault is unconscionable !!! I would be willing to bet there are others out there that have received similar treatment from your employees and you probably did nothing just waiting for the customer to give up and go away. How many of you have allowed Microsoft to bully you and stall you to the point where you just gave up ???

This will NOT be the case with me. I will continue to post this anywhere and everywhere I can think of that there might be the chance it will get back to someone in the corporate office who actually cares and takes their job seriously enough to call me and help get this matter fairly settled once and for all !!! I am well aware there are people out there who like to scam companies and get as much as they can for free, but I am NOT one of those people and I have a very valid reason along with proof of why I was asking for what I did.

MERCURY  completed its third and final retrograde journey for 2015 today, October 9th, and stationed  back into direct motion at 10:58 AM EDT - do I hear a BIG SIGH OF RELIEF out there ??? ... there were many people who again commented on what a particularly disruptive and annoying Mercury retrograde this one turned out to be ... and rightfully so as it piggy backed onto the Venus retrograde which occurred from July 25th through September 6 at which point Mercury had already entered its shadow point ... AND ... as this Mercury retrograde was in Libra which is ruled by Venus it most likely made it even more challenging as I heard many people comment that it seemed like the Venus retrograde hadn't really ended when it stationed direct on September 6th ... I know from personal experience that is exactly how I felt especially due to ongoing issues and difficulties I have been having with Microsoft since August 13th when they left me a victim of negligence due to their employees - two in particular - actions !!! 

Hopefully, the disorientation, confusion, frustration and outright irritation along with the sudden and unexpected issues that may have been produced by this Mercury retrograde in Libra will now begin to clear and subside as it becomes time to move forward into the swing of things on all levels ... it should also be helpful that Venus will exit its retrograde zone tomorrow ... so over the next few days to the next few weeks or even months, there will undoubtedly be quite a few  "a-ha" lights coming on in regard to decisions made or actions taken during the retrograde period from 9/17  through today, 10/9, and possibly as far back as 8/28 when Mercury entered its shadow point - the point where it would come out of the retrograde journey today which was at 0 DEGREES 54 MINUTES LIBRA   ... did issues and complications or questioning arise in regards to things done during the last retrograde period from May 18th through June 11th ??? ... or maybe even as far back as the retrograde period from January 21st through February 11th ??? ... but it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilities that some of these "a-ha" lights coming might actually have been issues encountered during the Venus retrograde as well !!!

Mercury retrograde periods, even though annoying and extremely frustrating at times, are actually a very beneficial thing, especially for those who were strong and fearless enough to dig deep down, as we need to validate, or in some cases invalidate, actions and situations gone awry and deal with them in order to finally release them to produce a calmer, positive and more productive state of mind thus allowing us to move forward to bring about greater personal and spiritual growth !!! ... if you've had a natal chart done, you should look to see in what house or houses 15  DEGREES 55 MINUTES back down to 0 DEGREES 54 MINUTES LIBRA falls - what kinds of issues did you have to deal with in the areas of life governed by those houses ??? ... how many of you went with the flow and how many of you tried to swim upstream in the raging current of Cosmic confusion ???

Of course the recurring question we may find ourselves asking now that Mercury is back in direct motion is "WHY" ??????? ...What actions did you take or were taken against you that you may now be regretting or simply wondering why you chose to do or why you were the victim of a particular course of action, and why  didn't you or the other person wait a little longer or are simply now trying to figure out why it happened ???? ... relationships may have come to an end - some needed to and others may have jumped the gun and you are now wondering, or will be, why did I do that or end things at this point ...  how many of you had relationship issues resurface - extremely likely with this retrograde occurring in Libra - that you thought surely had been resolved ???  ... how many of you got married - OOPSIE !!! ... did you make any major purchases - homes, cars, electronics - that now don't seem like the best thought out course of action ??? ... there could be problems regarding any purchases made especially with anything where electrical energy and/or computers were involved ... all of these scenarios are possible as the energy of a Mercury retrograde is one where communications and mental energy is going "backwards" ... so now that the mental processing facilities are no longer going backwards - at least for most of us !!! - it's time to finally RELEASE these emotional holds and allow ourselves to move forward with our lives !!!

In Libra, Mercury retrograde challenged us to mainly address our relationships and partnerships both public and private - but didn't we just get through having to do that during the recent Venus retrograde especially while it was retrograde in Leo ??? ... and it wouldn't be out of the question that the need may have arisen to address personal values and our monetary situation with Venus ruling Taurus as well even though the retrograde was not in that sign !!! ... how many lost jobs or had significant salary cutbacks ???

Mercury retrograding in the sign of Libra also had the potential to bring into focus the areas of life ruled by Venus as well as 7th house matters and also the potential to pull in 2nd house matters as Venus naturally rules these two houses of the horoscope ... so issues could have arisen regarding art, culture, possessions, partners, beauty, charm, good taste, sweets and sugar, harmony, singing, drama, music, emotional contacts, tenderness, moral character, marriage and unions of all kinds, pleasure and appreciation - all things ruled by Venus ...

There could have been issues in regards to financial affairs, possessions (excluding real estate), investments, earning power, gains or losses through your own efforts, inner talents and resources, your need for fulfillment, your emotional feelings, your sense of self-worth, sense of values, personal liberty and material debt - all matters represented by the 2nd house ...

But there was the greatest potential for issues to arise regarding business and marital partnerships/relationships, marriage, divorce, contracts, lawsuits, agreements, dealings with the public, open enemies, cooperation or lack thereof with other people, addressing what you most lack in yourself, grandparents, and any people who act as your agent or on your behalf - all matters represented by the 7th house which is the specific sign on the house Venus naturally rules where this Mercury retrograde took place ...

And because Mercury rules communications, it shouldn't have come as a surprise that people seem to lose their manners and tact which is what usually occurs during a Venus retrograde !!! ... I experienced that repeatedly with my ongoing issue with Microsoft !!!

Health-wise, there could have been issues with the throat, chin, cheeks or sense of taste which are areas ruled by Venus, and the kidneys which are ruled by Libra ...

As Mercury is the natural ruler of the 6th house, there was always the possibility of issues regarding daily work and service, as well as ones health and nutritional habits ...

Mercury now moves forward to complete its journey through Libra ... and just a reminder of what this energy is all about follows: 

MERCURY  began its transit through the charming, persuasive sign of Libra back on Thursday, August 27th, at 11:45 AM EDT ... harsh words and intimidating comments are seldom or very hesitatingly spoken while Mercury moves through this sign - after all, Libra is ruled by Venus which tends to soften and sweeten things while adding charm ... in many ways this can be considered as the cosmic energy expressing the "language" of love !!! ... Mercury was last in Libra from September 1st/2nd through September 29th, 2014 ...

Mercury in Libra produces a mindset that is usually concerned with human relations and psychology and produces a mindset towards balance where both sides of the issue are considered ... it gives an intense curiosity about the thinking and behavior patterns of others - it is very focused on one particular aspect of the mental and emotional plane and that is one-to-one relationships ... good communications and happiness in relationships are essential here ... there is a strong sense of justice which tends to make one very honest in their communications ... communications are generally made in a diplomatic, elegant and balanced manner ... feedback from others is a must in order to clarify your opinions ... mentally striving to support your heartfelt principles is often what inspires others with this energy ...

Mercury in Libra likes to consider all sides of an issue before making a final decision - the trap here is that Mercury, finding it difficult to explore any single idea without devoting equal time and energy to the opposite viewpoint and thus becoming distracted by too many facts, may yield indecisiveness which results in the inability to act on an issue thus getting lost ... Mercury in Libra also gives an interest to the law and the arts ... it bestows one with charm and diplomacy and gives the ability to communicate adeptly, elegantly, impartially and tactfully ... this energy produces natural born mediators and one who has truly mastered the art of whispering sweet nothings into your ear !!!

Mercury in Libra teaches us to think and communicate through relating to others, and underlying much of this thinking is a desire for agreement ... it likes an honest reputation, refined minds, good manners, moral justice and likes to learn through interaction with others ... it does not like being underestimated, having no one to talk with, and mob mentality ... as always there are two different kinds of uses with any energy ... as for Mercury in Libra they are:

POSITIVE: agreeable, flexible, diplomatic, prudent, persuasive, charming, well-spoken, communicative, hardworking, disciplined, scholarly, orderly, eclectic, fair judge, good arbitrator, reasonable, team-spirited, principled, honorable, open-minded ...

NEGATIVE: weak-minded, non-committal, turncoat, smooth-talking, insincere, affected, rat-racer, blindly obedient, unoriginal, indecisive, cowardly, phony, boring, illogical, easily swayed, overly sensitive, flighty, superficial ...

Libra born individuals have had a will continue to have for a little while longer a lot to think and rethink about during this extended transit, and of course will most likely be sharing it with us in their charming, endearing manner they are usually born with - unless of course the birth chart indicates otherwise ... for all of us, this becomes a period of time when we have the ability to learn to speak more graciously and gently through our communications ... and to that end we are all encouraged to -


Gemini and Virgo born, yet another period of review and reflection for you has come to an end ... how have you been enlightened and how was your life affected by having Mercury retrograding in your birth sign ?????? ... your ruling planet now resumes forward motion and much to your delight so will you - even though you were probably trying to do it during the actual retrograde ... right, of course right !!!

Mercury remains in Libra until November 1st/2nd depending on which time zone in which you live ... even though Mercury has resumed forward motion it will not be back up to full speed until October 24th when it exits the retrograde zone - the point where it began the actual retrograde period - when it returns to 15 DEGREES 55 MINUTES LIBRA ...

Mercury remains in direct motion until January 5th when it will begin its first retrograde journey for 2016 which will be a dual sign retrograde going from Aquarius back into Capricorn ... more about that later ... and there you have it ... but for now though, it's time for everyone to -


Thursday, October 8, 2015


Venus, which originally made its first complete transit through Leo back on June 5th through July 18th, and then returned back into Leo on July 23rd due to its retrograde journey for 2015, has finally completed its second transit through Leo and re-entered the picky, detailed oriented sign of Virgo today, October 8th, at 1:30 PM EDT ... Venus actually entered the sign of Virgo back on July 18th
but only got as far as 0 degrees 46 minutes Virgo before stationing retrograde, and thus was only in Virgo for roughly 8 days before returning to Leo to complete its retrograde journey ...  with all this retrograde energy going on as Mercury is currently retrograde in Libra which is ruled by Venus until tomorrow, here is a reminder of what this energy is all about :

This is a highly discerning type of love ... Venus in Virgo enjoys competence, precision, and doing things the way they should be done - CORRECTLY !!! ... it is exacting, discriminating and/or critical when relating to other people ... affection is usually expressed in a manner of doing things for people or serving them in some way ... it is also expressed modestly and/or timidly ... pleasure is achieved by  functioning efficiently and being helpful especially in repairing things, situations or people ... this Venus enjoys analysis, precision and organizing details ... logic and common sense makes this Venus very comfortable ... the handling of money and possessions is usually practical and thrifty ... there is a desire for common sense and for a willingness to work in love relationships ... this Venus can be more sincerely affectionate than any other sign, can  manifest a very strong business sense, and knows exactly what is does and does not want !!! ... it often has a tendency to get so involved in details it becomes overly critical and demanding ...

Venus is challenged in Virgo as it is considered to be in its "fall" ... being in its "fall", Venus is opposite the sign it is exalted in which is Pisces, and does not work all that efficiently because this position makes it difficult to express its true nature ... a planet in "fall" is like having to stay in someone elses home where you do not really feel all that comfortable ...

Venus transiting the sign of Virgo teaches us to learn to determine what it is we truly love through detailed analysis ... ultimately one discovers that eventually you must surrender to the mystery of love and art - or objects thereof - and no longer analyze ... this energy can acquire a finely tuned sense of social, emotional, and artistic values ... one must also learn to be discriminating about being discriminating ... one must resist the temptation to tamper with what is already simply attractive ... this Venus likes a spotless reputation, good manners, sexual hygiene, and pure or natural art ... it doesn't like relationships that have no mental stimulus ... the energy of Venus in Virgo can be expressed in the following ways :

POSITIVE: knowing what you like, discriminating, fine sense of aesthetics and design, artistic, sincerely affectionate, simple and clear, quietly charming, strong character, impartially kind, coolly
helpful, precision worker, specialist worker, painstaking, pure and modest lover, high moral sense, socially discerning, privately sensuous

NEGATIVE : critical of partners, fussy and nagging, easily dissatisfied, artistically neurotic, inhibits affection, undemonstrative, dry, socially stiff, hides sensitivity, emotionally absent, cold exterior, too exacting, retreats into work, indecisive, restrained, feeling sexually inferior, puritanical, social misfit, self-effacing

Venus is the natural ruling planet of Libra and Taurus, and as such, love, partnerships/relationships, personal values and how we earn and spend our money, in addition to our dedication to our daily work and service, health and nutritional habits as well as some family issues will be thoroughly examined under the cosmic microscope while Venus is in the precision, detail oriented sign of Virgo which is naturally ruled by Mercury ... Mercury will be completing its third and final retrograde journey for 2015 tomorrow so there shouldn't be too much disruption and confusion with Venus transiting through a sign ruled by Mercury !!!

Venus now joins Mars and Jupiter already in transit through Virgo, and will complete its final transit through Virgo on November 8th ...

Virgo born, don't forget the "love light" is once again shining on you - play it right and you might just get what you want ... and as stated back in July, for all of us it would be very wise not to let the object of our affections become the "target" of our affections while we are being encouraged by the Universe to be out there "looking for the perfect AHHHHHH" !!!
