Mercury began its transit through the domestic, sympathetic sign of Cancer yesterday, June 21st, at 5:58 AM  EDT ... our thought and communicative processes now turn from a highly intellectual mode towards a more emotional mode of operation as the ruler of Cancer is the Moon which, among other things, rules the emotions ... our thinking and communicating often ends up resulting from how we FEEL !!! ... Mercury was last in Cancer from June 29th through July 13th, 2016 !!!

Mercury in Cancer has a way of subconsciously picking up signals from everyone else .. the mind becomes as much a receiver as a transmitter under this energy ... here we have a highly intuitive mode of thinking and communicating ... this placement also usually bestows a very good memory along with strong poetic power ... Mercury in Cancer thinks with the heart and often interprets the meaning of others communications through how it "feels" !!!

Mercury in Cancer does not always say everything it is feeling as it tries to avoid hurting itself and others as well with careless ill-spoken comments ... one is very protective of their thoughts ... it likes to nurture ideas and encourage growth before sharing ... one uses emotions as well as logic and often may end up letting sensitivities sway ones decisions ... subconscious fears, habits, or prejudices could inhibit ones objectivity or openness to the new !!!

There is usually an above-average psychic ability ... one learns through absorbing their experiences and making emotional connections ... interest here may include family, the home, the land, the past, the public or security ... Oh yes, we most definitely may find ourselves thinking about food A LOT, and hopefully that thinking doesn't become a nasty habit of overeating causing us to expand in ways we would rather NOT !!!

Mercury in Cancer teaches us the importance of about thinking through nurturing ... it is a caring mind ... one has to be careful not to take everything so personally here ... it is important to remember to look at the facts in addition to the opinions of others ... it is also important to remember and be aware that each one of us is our own source of light and warmth ... most importantly it is necessary to make a collection of good memories that will give rise to clear and positive thinking ... the energy of Mercury in Cancer can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: mentally tenacious, good memory, reliable, sensitive mind, poetic, intuitive, agreeable, absorbs information, attuned to public opinion, profound, polite, softly-spoken, discreet, diplomatic, arouses sympathies, emotionally appealing, persuasive speaker

NEGATIVE: mentally habit-ridden, distracted, inflexible, overly impressionable, impractical, irrational, yes-person, too open, taking things too personally, depressive, self-conscious, unclear, incomprehensible, diffuse,  prejudiced, untruthful

Mercury now joins the Sun having begun its transit through the sign of Cancer just hours earlier, and Mars which is about halfway through its transit of Cancer - that's a lot of "water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink" !!! ... Mercury remains in the sign of Cancer until July 5th ... only one more full sign transit to go, that being through Leo, until Mercury begins its next retrograde journey for 2017 on August 12th ,,, Mercury will actually complete its initial transit through Leo but due to retrograde motion will return for a brief period .... the next Mercury retrograde period occurs from August 12th through September 5th going from 11 degrees 38 minutes Virgo back to 28 degrees 25 minutes Leo !!!

While Mercury is transiting through the sign of Cancer, one should realize that the natural ability to influence others is worthy of only our highest motives ... tuning in to ones finer feelings and expressing them is ultimately more rewarding ... and finally, try to focus on what you are after, who you are with and why ... and then stick with that !!! ... and by all means - enjoy the mental trips down memory lane as they will surely "light the corners of your mind" !!!

The Sun begins its transit through the emotional, nurturing sign of Cancer tomorrow, June 21st (June 20th depending on which time zone in which you live), at 12:24 AM EDT heralding the arrival of Summer in the Northern hemisphere ... also known as the Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year - the days begin getting shorter each day until the Winter Solstice - which began Monday in the Southern hemisphere - in December ... the pace of life now takes on a somewhat slower tempo than the hectic pace it had while the Sun was racing through Gemini !!!

We now begin to process life through a more emotional rather than an intellectual filter ... with the Sun in Cancer one needs to shine through nurturing warmth, through protection, through attracting others through sympathy/dependency, and through family, ancestry or roots !!!

Cancer is the sign whose key phrase is its need to give and receive emotional warmth and security, to feel and to give devotion ... Cancer born individuals are warm and understanding but they can be very touchy at times ... wound them or befriend them and they will never forget ... they love to keep in touch and usually have a remarkable memory ... this is probably the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac but it is also often the least likely to let you know what they are feeling deep inside !!!

Cancer is a feminine/water/cardinal(beginnings) sign ... its symbol is the Crab - possessing an impenetrable exterior which covers soft flesh below ... the glyph of Cancer is the claws of the Crab which are also representative of the human breasts ... symbolically, the glyph shows two circles of the Sun that are connected to two crescent Moons ... these two Moons represent the Cancer desire to store memories and possessions, and the circles tied to the Moons represent the force which is expressed through the emotions and the imagination ... Cancer rules the breasts and the stomach which explains why Cancer born usually love to eat and often fight the battle of the bulge - unless modified by other energy in the natal chart !!! .. they are also subject to digestive ailments resulting from tension and emotional stress ... anatomically, Cancer also rules digestion, the left eye of the male and the right eye of the female ...

Cancer is ruled by the Moon - maybe you can now understand why Cancer born individuals seem to go through so many mood changes so quickly - after all, the Moon does change signs about every 2 to 2 and a half days ... it takes roughly 28 days to complete a spin around the entire zodiac ... the Moon represents the female principle - mother, wife and women in general ... it also represents the public in general, along with instincts, moods, the tides, phases, receptivity, fluctuation, habit patterns, reflex actions, personal interests, desires, needs, magnetism, growth, fertility, the need to touch, impressionability, consciousness, liquids, commodities, nursing, tradespeople ...

Cancer is the natural ruler of the 4th house of the horoscope ... the 4th house shows property - houses and real estate - and all that is secluded ... it is the house of endings, the closing years of life, the ending of all matters, fame after death and place of burial ... it represents the parent who has greater influence on you as a child, your subjective self, and the foundation on which you build your own unique character ... as a child one may perceive this house as relating to both parents but as one learns through growth and understanding, the 4th house will ultimately reflect the nurturing parent ...

While the Sun transits Cancer, the Universe encourages each one of us to learn to live through nurturing oneself as well as others ... it's holding on with Love - the instinct for survival ... Cancer has also been often referred to as the "Lighthouse of Welcome" ... the ultimate lesson here is that ones family is the Human Race itself ... emotional awareness is more acute here so use it constructively ... determine and perform your responsibilities generously ... learn to trust in the Universe and understand that all things must pass, and realize each day is a new day a new beginning ... the energy of the Sun in Cancer may be expressed the following ways:

POSITIVE: emotional, feeling, receptive, sensitive, psychic, gentle, tender, vulnerable, sympathetic, nurturing, providing, caring, protective, maternal, feeding, domestic, patriotic, shy, retiring, collecting, tenacious, oriented toward the past, retentive, emotionally encouraging, thrifty

NEGATIVE: insecure, moody, defensive, devious, over-emotional, non-trusting, hypersensitive, touchy, brooding, smothering, clinging, consuming, over-protective, dependent, fearful, timid, clannish, withdrawn, grasping, stuck in the past, afraid to let go, anti-social, argumentative, apathetic

HAPPY SOLAR RETURN CANCER BORN - this is your time of the year to SHINE - or have a good cry if  you're feeling really emotional !!!

The Sun now joins Mars already in transit through Cancer, and then Mercury will make its ingress about five and a half hours later at 5:58 AM EDT ... the Sun remains in Cancer until July 22nd !!!

Be aware your feelings and emotions will be heightened and challenged ... be prepared to become more in touch with them whether it be through a fleeting glimpse or a deeply profound experience with something or someone near and dear to you ... and, as the Crab always carries its home - its shell - on its back wherever it goes, we all might as well click our heels 3  times and repeat what Cancer energy, as well as Dorothy Gale, so lovingly makes us aware of - THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME !!!

NEPTUNE - planet of the spiritual, universal, ethereal, mysterious, mystical, enlightenment, psychic, delusional, imagination, escape, surrender, sacrifice, artistic inspiration, musical ability, glamour, fantasy, romantic love, dissolving, uplifting, confusing, consoling, undermining, drugs and alcohol - began its retrograde journey for 2017 on Friday, June 16th, at 7:10 AM EDT ... this retrograde period will go from 14 degrees 16 minutes Pisces back to 11 degrees 28 minutes Pisces !!!

One of the main purposes of Neptune retrograde is to not just have blind faith ... be it personal spiritual quests or the "collective" quest of society, Neptune retrograde energy means a reexamination of hopes and beliefs ... we may all need to individually question and test all aspects of faith - in fact many may experience some kind of crisis of faith during this period ... we begin to question and develop objectivity in regards to the intangibles of life such as truth, fear, hope and inspiration ... when Neptune is retrograde it is closest to the Earth making its function even more intensified !!!

Artists, musicians, poets and those who are leading a highly spiritual life may especially feel the energy of a Neptune retrograde and be truly inspired ... during a Neptune retrograde if we aren't pursuing a spiritual quest we may become confused, disillusioned or full of illusions ... there is a chance that some may fall into drugs, alcohol or other escapist behaviors ... ideally, this is a time to question the ideas society accepts about faith, fears, truth and understanding ... inspiration and potential for spiritual growth can be greatly enhanced ... there is also the potential for confusion, disorientation, unfounded fear, disillusionment, and misunderstandings at the beginning until the retrograde energy settles in !!!

Neptune retrograde periods are a time for everyone to tune into the collective unconscious and realize how our own fears, illusion, confusion or spiritual journey are connected to what is happening with humanity ... this is a time for each one of us to determine whether or not our own individual energies are being used positively to develop faith and spirituality, or if we are simply pursuing a path of illusion, escapism and disappointment ... Neptune retrogrades about 5 - 6 months every year !!!

Neptune is currently transiting through the sign of Pisces - the sign it naturally rules ... In Pisces, Neptune’s qualities of spirituality and creative genius are noticeably enhanced ... Neptune here does NOT value materialism ... there will be more of a tendency to explore and develop our inner selves yielding the possibility of attaining the capability of harmony between the physical and spiritual world ... this energy makes us potentially more psychic, generous, understanding, responsive to the environment, more mystical and compassionate ... but it  also has the potential to lead us in the other direction making us more gullible, passive, self-destructive and likely becoming a victim to all kinds of addictions especially with this energy turned inwards during its retrograde period ... If we use this retrograde energy positively, we have the potential to become more compassionate, self-sacrificing, intuitive, artistic and creative … used negatively we will end up melancholy, an escapist, a procrastinator, vague, and likely to become a victim of many forms of addiction including drugs and alcohol !!!

Pisces born, since Neptune is your planetary ruler, this is your yearly time to review and rethink what has been going on in your life since the last Neptune retrograde ended on November 19th, 2016 ... For everyone, if you have had a natal chart done and know in which house or houses 14 degrees 16 minutes Pisces back to 11 degrees 28 minutes Pisces falls, then you might get an idea in what area of your life the main thrust of this Neptune retrograde energy will be affecting you ... have you been seeking the "ideal" and been looking at things realistically, or have you been looking at life through the proverbial "rose colored glasses" letting illusion mislead you and not effectively dealing with reality ???

Neptune remains retrograde until November 22nd ... it is definitely a good time, if you don't already, to start paying careful attention to your dreams as the Universe will undoubtedly be bringing us vital information while we sleep – keep a dream journal close by and USE IT !!! ... you might be amazed at what information the Universe sends to you in your unconscious state ... your dreams are sure to be enhanced with symbolism and information from the Universe resulting in profitable and/or illuminating and enlightening ideas ... after all, it's been said "a dream is a wish your heart makes" !!!

So now the question is what will you choose to do - Open your heart and mind to divine spiritual and creative energy, or allow yourself to fall into the depths of addiction, deception and escapism and simply become "lost in wonderland" ???

JUPITER  - the planet representing growth, the laws, belief and ethics, expansion, opportunity, wealth, faith, higher education, travel especially long distance, religion, philosophy, joy, goodwill, as well as excess and extravagance - completed its retrograde journey on Friday, June 9th, at 10:04 AM EDT resuming forward motion at 13 DEGREES 13 MINUTES LIBRA ... while Jupiter has been retrograde since February 5th/6th of this year, we have all been rethinking and reviewing our growth and expansion and determining whether or not it may have gone too far too fast and needed some adjustment !!! 

During this period we all have hopefully experienced some kind of internal growth and have been preparing for opportunities that may now become available as Jupiter has stationed back into direct motion ... now is the time to finally determine whether or not what is being offered is something that you truly want and whether or not it will positively promote personal and spiritual growth, or is something that is merely stroking your ego !!!

This Jupiter retrograde period occurred from 23 DEGREES 8 MINUTES LIBRA back to 13  DEGREES 13 MINUTES LIBRA ... if you've had a natal chart done you know where these degrees fall, and the areas of life ruled by the house our houses involved are most likely where situations had gone too far in an effort to produce growth and expansion, and had to be addressed and adjustments made  !!!

Sagittarius born individuals, it is time for you to come out of your "hibernation period" and begin moving forward once again ... so where did you receive illumination and enlightenment and what have you been busy reviewing and rethinking in your lives since February 5th/6th ??? ... what is it that you really want, and what is it that is simply excessive and unnecessary for personal and spiritual growth and expansion ... and we all should have been doing that on some level of our lives !!!

The following is a reminder of what the energy of Jupiter in Libra involves and how it may affect you in your life :

JUPITER  began its transit through the sign of Libra back on Friday, September 9th, 2016 at 7:18 AM EDT ... Jupiter was last in Libra from September 25th, 2004 through October 25th/26th, 2005 ... Jupiter is the planet considered to bestow blessings which we must learn to use wisely and effectively ... Jupiter in Libra indicates a strong concern with justice or moral principals in marriage, partnerships and close personal relationships ...

Jupiter in Libra can bestow a magnetic and very charming personality ... good fortune can come to one through artistic talents and an "eye for beauty" ... this energy is often expressed successfully by talented musicians, painters, interior designers, fashion designers and art collectors ... there is an ability in making friends in high places ... a love of entertainment is prominent ... one can benefit from marriage as it frequently brings with it a good home life, social position, wealth and sometimes a fortunate entry into the business world ... this energy understands that one should rarely start a business all on their own ... as a balance of reasoning and being impartial are strong here, it yields potential for successful judges, lawyers and diplomats ... usually one finds a lot of friends accompanies this energy ... perhaps too many !!!

Jupiter in Libra can yield a great amount of curiosity as it sees opportunity abounding everywhere ... however, one should be very cautious as this energy is so oriented toward working through successful relationships, one can end up following what others say you should do and pursuing an appealing opportunity which is ultimately the last thing you should do ... so it becomes necessary to develop a strength of purpose and concentrate on one particular area in which you desire to succeed ... caution is mandated here so you don't end up being successful in the eyes of others and not your own as well ... 

Jupiter in Libra teaches us about achieving further personal and spiritual growth through how we relate ... this is truly the social "animal" as well as the one who desires to be the peacemaker ... it's about learning to relate fairly and wisely in life ... ones ethical, religious, spiritual and moral influences in their life have a direct influence on the success one achieves through their 
personal/social relationships ... it is said that with Jupiter in Libra one is standing in judgment either consciously or subconsciously with yourself and of others ... needs and desires are constantly being weighed against beliefs and values ... and one must be careful as trying to please everybody can end up causing one to feel they are losing their own identity ... 

Jupiter in Libra can, because of the many potential relationships being pursued, allow one to expand their horizons through travel - especially long distance, higher education, philosophy and/or religion ... as a result one often gains a better understanding of ones place in the Universal scheme of things ... "lucky in love" is usually a prominent theme here ... however, one must be careful as the drive to pursue so many relationships at one time may result in you getting involved with someone just so you won't be alone ... and a word of warning, be very careful about the pursuit of all these varied relationships for now until Mercury completes its current retrograde journey on September 22nd ... otherwise, that will end up being a lot of work and energy poured irresponsibly, as it has the tendency to do with this energy anyway, into developing a relationship that goes nowhere !!! 

Jupiter in Libra yields the potential for talents in dealing with people, teaching, counseling, psychology, meditation, public relations, direct contact forms of advertising and journalistic or literary writing ... the caveats with this extremely enthusiastic energy in dealing with other people include trying to make moral decisions for others, promising more than one can deliver, expecting too many favors and considerations, initiating too many close personal relationships at one time, and lawsuits stemming from unfulfilled legal or financial commitments in regards to business, property, marital or professional matters ... also in relation to matters of health, keep in mind there could be issues, either good or challenging, in regards to the lower back and buttocks, the kidneys as well as the throat, chin, cheeks and sense of taste ... the energy of Jupiter in Libra can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: cultured, cultivating others, encouraging, generous with wealth, well-meaning, conciliatory, greatly sympathetic, enhanced sense of justice, strong morality, considerate, good partner, idealistic, lasting lover, sociable

NEGATIVE: snobbish, patronizing, overly flattering, superficial, too nice, ingratiating, expecting too much, double standards, promising too much, constantly juggling options, disloyal, excessive need for praise

As always, for all of you who have had a natal chart run and know where the 30 degrees of Libra fall, you will probably get a good idea of where in your life there is the potential for the energy of Jupiter in Libra to expand your horizons on your journey through life !!!

For those of you born with Jupiter in Libra, are experiencing your Jupiter return at some point during this transit when Jupiter reaches the degree it was at when you were born ... this return occurs approximately every 12 years as that is how long it takes Jupiter to transit around the zodiac ... Jupiter returns often mark the completion of a cycle of religious, spiritual or philosophical understanding and thus the beginning of major new cycles of growth and progress ... it represents a time when one hopefully sees whether or not they are putting as much into the world as they expect to receive from it ... frequently people who are beneficial for you in some way will come into your life during this time ... and yes, there is always the possible potential to gain from some financial advantage ... one can experience prosperity, opportunity and abundance in the area of life ruled by whichever house in ones natal chart this return occurs ...

Jupiter remains remains in direct motion until March 9th, 2018 and in Libra until October 10th, 2017 not to return until August 24th, 2028  ... Libra born, your one year period with enhanced potential for growth, expansion - hopefully not around the waistline - opportunity 
and out right luck is heading in to its final months - but that is not to say that there won't be other opportunities after Jupiter leaves your birth sign ... be extra careful to keep your eyes and ears open to the many possibilities that may come your way !!!

One should always be trying to live life to the fullest with a steady, quiet self-confidence which is ultimately what Jupiter energy is all about !!! ... to that end, optimistic voices will hopefully encourage us as we all begin to "exuberantly" seek to expand our philosophy of life which in turn potentially will yield more positive personal and spiritual growth !!!

So be prepared as Jupiter moves forward to complete its journey through LIBRA to be focused, concentrated and busy perfecting the fine art of promoting  growth and expansion in your life through positive RELATING !!!

MERCURY - began its transit through the curious and inquisitive sign of Gemini yesterday, June 6th, at 6:15 PM EDT ... once again it's time to let the Mental Olympics begin !!! ... Mercury is very much at home here and functions well not only because this is an air sign, but it is also considered to be in dignity as this is one of the two signs Mercury naturally rules - the other sign being Virgo ... the "windmills of your mind" are definitely going to probably be spinning in overdrive for the next 16 days potentially producing numerous scathingly brilliant ideas and plans you want to take action on ... Mercury was last in Gemini from June 12th through June 29th, 2016 - anything come to mind from that period regarding communications and even travel related issues ???

Mercury in Gemini gives a mind and tongue that can be very restless but very good at absorbing and learning information easily and then sharing it ... one can be quite articulate but sometimes have the tendency to talk or even gossip too much ... there is a skill for verbal expression and the ability to communicate quickly and cleverly ... often the ideas and manner of speech come off a bit superficial due to the urge to communicate perceived information immediately or because one is covering too much ground too fast ... this Mercury likes to talk ... and talk ... and talk ... and talk - thus yielding energy that has the potential to give many of us a brutal case of "diarrhea of the mouth" !!!

Mercury in Gemini is all about learning and communicating ... there is a high degree of curiosity about everything coupled with an eagerness to learn as much as possible - the world is ones school of life and therein exists a sumptuous, endless and delicious banquet to help quench an almost endless thirst for knowledge !!! ... the mind is likely to be logical, rational, and able to offer information on most any topic ... friendly interchanges are frequent along with the tendency to ask a lot of questions ... there is a high degree of nervous energy which can flow into speech, gestures, writing or manual dexterity in some fashion ... there is also the possibility of physical dexterity and flexibility ...

Those born with Mercury in Gemini, as well as the rest of us that are subject to its transiting influence, can be very hard to pin down ... one often holds down more than one job or may work on a number of projects at one time ... quick, versatile and interested in the world at large, one tends to live mostly on a mental plane ... one MUST have facts and information - there is a basic need to KNOW ... this energy frequently makes one good at languages and math, gives one a love of reading, studying , traveling, and talking with new people about what you have learned or are thinking about ... there is also the potential for a lack of being able to stick-to-it as well as a lack of order in ones life ... usually this energy can produce one who knows a little bit about everything but not a lot about anything !!!

Mercury in Gemini teaches us to learn to think through communicating ... the mind is fed and nurtured through making contact with as many people and as many subjects as possible ... the intellect is wired up and ready to go ... it must constantly be stimulated otherwise nervous irritability or restlessness can occur ... the mind is efficient due to its ability to be quick and acquisitive, but the quality of the mind is only as good as what is being fed into it through social, business and educational pursuits - input becomes just as important as output !!! ... there is the capability of thinking on two or more levels at one time ... but one must guard against not having a definite direction to move in or else there can be the result of great mental confusion ... the energy of Mercury in Gemini can be expressed the following ways:

POSITIVE: articulate, curious, well-informed, widely read, quick-witted, lively mind, fast learner, dexterous, clever, humorous, sharp, fluent, inventive, versatile, original, handy, interesting, agreeable, unbiased, logical

NEGATIVE: chatterbox, nosy, gossip, superficial knowledge, highly strung, unruly mind, non persevering, fidgety, crafty, mischievous, flippant, makeshift, imitative, simplistic, trite, scatters energies, unfocused, misses the point

Mercury transiting through Gemini is an excellent time to open your mind to countless new ideas and information ... allow your mind to be like a sponge absorbing as much as it can realistically process ... meditation might even prove to be very useful during this transit to help process all of the information one may encounter both consciously and subconsciously !!!

Mercury now joins the Sun currently transiting through the sign of Gemini ... Mercury remains in the sign of Gemini until June 21st making its ingress into Cancer about five and a half hours after the Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) and Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) which will occur at 12:24 AM EDT !!!

The universe is now presenting us, both individually and collectively, with a lot of information and ideas to absorb, process and perhaps even implement somewhere into our lives ... and as much as we will want to constantly share and express our opinions, we may find ourselves wanting to say or finding someone else saying to us - SHUT UP !!!

Ultimately one of the greatest lessons of Mercury in Gemini becomes the following: RESPECT THE VALUE OF YOUR OWN MIND - WATCH WHAT GOES INTO IT AND THEN BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH !!!

VENUS  - the planet representing attraction, love, affection, beauty, happiness, value and values, how we relate, and social or artistic expression - began its transit through the earthy, stable sign of Taurus, today, June 6th, at 3:27 AM EDT ... Venus is very comfortable and at home functioning very well here ... it is considered to be in "dignity" in Taurus - this is one of the two signs of the zodiac it naturally rules - the other being Libra of course ... Venus was last in Taurus from April 29th through May 24th, 2016 - anything come to mind from that period regarding love, money, and partnerships/relationships either private or public ???

Venus in Taurus enjoys physical gratification - including food, drink, possessions, finances, and sensual indulgences - often to the point of becoming overly indulgent !!! ... it deeply enjoys sensations, appreciates nature, and truly savors the five senses more so than usual - especially TOUCH !!! ... this energy is often relaxed and easygoing in relating to people and it appreciates loyalty and stability ... affection is expressed physically and steadily - sometimes to the point of being too possessive ... the drive for pleasure is very strong and could easily make one excessively self-indulgent ... the handling of money and possessions is usually done sensibly, but there could be the tendency to overvalue comfort, luxury and/or attractive physical objects ... there is a desire for comfort in love relationships and one responds to sensual energy from other people ... an appreciation of beauty and artistic talents can lead to personal satisfaction and success !!!

Whatever this energy loves it will love completely and totally ... it believes relationships can last forever ... but sometimes the relationships last longer than they should ... the saying that old habits die hard is especially true with Venus in Taurus ... and this energy continues to think about all the time what it has "invested" in its object of desire !!! .. this is a steadfast love ... it also is prone to the love of good food so gaining weight could prove a challenge under this energy - over the lips forever on the hips ???

Venus in Taurus teaches us all about loving through stabilizing ... it's Nature's connoisseur ... there is a pronounced need to show physical affection in order to feel loved - mere words will NOT suffice ... the secret here to obtaining the object of your desires and maintaining a stable relationship is to understand that anything or anyone outside of yourself can only become a part of your life when your value and values are a reflection and in harmony with Nature itself ... this is one of the very strongest Planet-Sign combinations that indicates a genuine love of Nature ... the ultimate truth here is that what you love and care about is only as solid and secure as how you feel inside ... the energy of Venus in Taurus can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: attractive, earthy, affectionate, artistic, aesthetic, peaceful, sensuous, satisfying, steadfast, loyal, wholesome, constant, sympathetic, encouraging, comforting, pleasure-giving, nature-loving, deeply trusting, sound values, conservational

NEGATIVE: greedy, materialistic, self-indulgent, overly sensual, self-satisfied, stubborn, possessive, smug, too abiding, misguiding, dissipating, insatiable, limited viewpoint, gullible, weight-gainer, jealous, insecure

Taurus born individuals, this is your time to reflect your inner beauty outwardly and ask for what you want - you just might get it if it is what you truly desire ... for the rest of us, we can now see what it might be like to be born with Venus in Taurus, as well as getting a glimpse into how Taurus born individuals may operate in their quest for love and defining where their true values lie !!!

Venus now joins Mercury, but for only about 15 hours until Mercury makes its ingress into Gemini today at 6:15 PM EDT, and after that Venus will be the only planet transiting through the sign of Taurus ... Venus remains in Taurus until July 4th !!!

That which makes us feel loved is our own persistent faith in our individual love nature ... and by the end of this transit we all will hopefully have been able to feel - just a "touch" of love !!!

MARS - the planet representing the urge to get what you want, personal drive, sexual drive, initiative, courage, raw energy, as well as selfishness, abuse and violence - began its transit through the emotional, nurturing sign of Cancer today, June 4th, at 12:16 PM EDT ... Mars being a fiery planet does not fare too well in a water sign like Cancer as water tends to rain on its parade of aggression and initiative which in some cases can be a very good thing and in others cases very detrimental to its course of intended action !!!

Mars in Cancer is said to be in the sign of its "Fall" - that is it's in the sign opposite of Capricorn, where it is Exalted and tends to function even more efficiently than in the sign it naturally rules which is Aries ... so this Mars often has trouble expressing its true nature ... it's "fire" gets watered down and that can either produce irritating steam or sensual steamy energy ... it is like staying in someones home where you do not feel comfortable !!! ... Mars was last in Cancer from June 24th, 2015 through August 8th, 2015 - anything come to mind from that period ???

Mars in Cancer can be highly emotional and is pulled between expressing its feelings and holding them in ... there is a great need for emotional security ... one may assert themselves here indirectly, shyly, sensitively or carefully, but this Mars is definitely prone to emotional outbursts ... identity is closely tied to home, family, and feelings ... energy levels seem to rise and fall with ones moods ... if your heart is involved in something, then this energy can truly accomplish anything it sets its mind out to do ... anger is more often expressed through crying rather than screaming and yelling ... one has to be careful with this energy not to give too much to others just to avoid confrontation !!!

Mars in Cancer is teaches us to get what we  want through nurturing ... its fighting or taking flight ... the sex drive is usually very strong here but that can be good or bad depending on how the energy is expressed ... one of the challenges with this energy is to find out what is really making you angry and deal with it ... figure out who or what it is that you genuinely care about also ... ultimately we must learn where the fine line falls between stimulation and outright aggravation !!! ... We now leave behind our minds being set on fire for a thirst of knowledge as well as the desire to move about and that drive becomes turned inward to address our emotions and what we feel we must nurture !!! 

As Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and the Moon naturally rules the 4th house, we may encounter problems with the stomach - there could be a lot of you out there that become the victim of  acid indigestion, heartburn, and frequent upset stomach issues ... also the home, family, the mother or a maternal figure, women in general and the public in general are areas where one could find issues arising there if you react to quick without thinking things through ... and of course whichever house or houses the complete degrees of Cancer fall in your natal chart is certainly where you will find this increased "burning" drive to occur !!!

This Martian energy likes close involvements, a secure sex life, and an active home life ... it dislikes mild mannered emotions, distress within the family setting, inner doubts and domestic "fires" ... the energy of Mars in Cancer can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: sensuous, provocative, passionate, sexually subtle, tenacious, protective, bold, hardworking, complex, adaptable, sensitive, healing, intuitive, original, occultist

NEGATIVE: irritable, evasive, too intense, sexually unsure, possessive, defensive, compulsive, neurotic, moody, quarrelsome, confusing, fatalistic, weird, spooky/spooked

Mars is currently the only planet transiting through the sign of  Cancer, but will be joined by the Sun and Mercury in a little over two weeks, and that is a lot of "fired" up emotional energy to be dealing with !!! ... Mars remains in Cancer until July 20th !!!

CANCER BORN, you will no doubt be "fired up" about something or someone during the next six weeks ... as always be careful not to incinerate, or in this case should I say perhaps be careful not to flood with your heightened emotional state, the object of your increased drive and desire !!!

We all will be experiencing this energy on some level of our lives ... we will be urged to keep the "home fires" brightly lit, but we must be careful not to go overboard and end up  "burning down the house" which might result in "crying yourself a river" !!!
