Venus and Mars Play Kissy Face Tuesday

Lots of interesting aspects coming up this week. The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces on Monday making for so many mixed signals we maybe literally dizzy before the day is through. If you're trying to negotiate any agreements on this day be sure to get your final plans in writing to avoid misunderstandings. Otherwise this line up simply means you have to be careful not to assume too much when it comes to relationships. This is because the Sun represents the signal we're putting out and the planet opposite describes how others receive it. Sun in Virgo suggests we'll think we're being clear and concise but Neptune defuses, confuses and fantasizes so we have to be careful not to ignore what we don't want to hear and also not to be paranoid and think we're hearing things we're not.

Tuesday will bring some much needed clarity when Venus and Mars meet up for their annual hug. Wednesday has some very friendly aspects too. In fact, if you're considering booking a reading either Tuesday or Wednesday would be great days to call as this line up promises to give you practical insights. For now, so many callers have asked me how they can find true love I thought I'd take advantage of this encouraging aspect to write out some of the suggestions people tell me have worked for them.

Finding love really shouldn't be so difficult especially if you follow Rosada's Guide to Match Making Made Easy!

1. Do unto yourself as you would have others do unto you. Hopefully you'll meet a partner who treats you even better, but by taking good care of yourself you're telling the world, "I'm a prize catch" and we know everyone wants to win the prize!

Somethings you can do to be good to yourself: Obviously taking care of your health and dressing for success but there is also one thing we often don't do for ourselves that can be a major turn off. The number one thing we don't always do for ourselves is we don't give ourselves enough time. We try to stuff too much into our busy schedules and end up being chronically late. Surveys show being late is the number one reason people come to be considered unreliable, unsuitable and ultimately, unlovable! So be kind to yourself and keep your schedule realistic - others will love you for it.

2. Let them do for you too! Another interesting social experiment found that people tend to value more what they pay/work more for. Seems odd but it's true. If someone asks to buy you dinner don't pick the cheapest thing on the menu. Studies show people will make more of an effort to see you as being "worth it" because they don't want to think they were wrong to spend so much money on you (within reason of course)!

3. Do what YOU like. Sure you might meet more men at a bar or sporting event, but if you don't share their enthusiasm for drink or love soccer, what's the point? Join a group promoting your own interests - that's where you'll meet a partner who's on your same wave length.

4. Feng Shui your house for love. This means decorating to reinforce the idea of partnership. Take down the picture of the lonely coyote howling at the moon and replace it with a photo of two love birds. If your china is chipped and grungy replace it too. Invest in some cups you're so excited about you'll want to have a party to show them off! And of course box up any momentos from past relationships and get them out of your house. If you can't see buying a whole new bed and mattress set at least toss the old sheets.

5. While we're on the subject of detoxing from former attachments, if you're still trying to to get over a previous engagement get the movie Swingers. I'm not going to go into detail about it here but I promise you, rent that delightful dvd and it will fast forward your recovery by light years. The book How to Survive The Loss of a Love is a healer too.

6. Check out an online dating service. Now if you've never done that you may think that's a really weird scary idea, but I'm not suggesting you should necessarily sign up (although if you do feel to do that call me and we can pick an astrologically perfect time for making sure you get the best results!). The point is that we tend to see in the world what we see in our mind's eye. Thus, if you haven't met anyone with partnership potential lately it may be because you have a limited vision of what's out there and so you're just not recognizing them. When you look online you'll be inundated with pictures and descriptions of all kinds of curious characters and possibilities. Maybe some will appeal to you, maybe they wont. But the mere looking at these folks - trying them on for size! - will stir up your brain to start noticing potential partners in your real world. What ever you put your attention on you're going to manifest more of. Look at websites of people looking for friends and you will manifest people looking for friends!

7. Finally, I get results burning candles. I know this sounds hokie but it works. Red candles are for energizing love relationships. The first time I burned a red candle a bird flew out of a tree and landed right at my feet. It wasn't a knight in shining armor but I did see it as a positive omen. Then later that evening the friend I had burned the candle for called out of the blue. We had had a major falling out and I don't think he even knew why he was calling me but we got things back on track and so now I am definitely a believer! If you would like me to burn a candle for you - I do a special ritual - just ask. There is no charge.

Wishing you the best of love,

Full Moon in Pisces: Dreams Do Come True.

Limiting Saturn at the last degrees of Scorpio put a squelch on good vibrations for many of us this summer. Perhaps with Jupiter in Leo we aimed too high and now things have come crashing down. Or maybe Saturn's relentless focus on reality ruined a light romance or even caused us to feel downright used and forsaken.  Even when there was cause for celebration - like kids graduating from high school and moving on to college - the sense of loss that change brings often over shadowed our awareness of new opportunities now coming in. If you have been one of those experiencing a sense of losing your identity as your role in life has lately evolved, take heart - this week's full moon in Pisces (Saturday, August 29) means you will soon experience a true awakening, a reconnection with your spiritual ideals and hopes for the future!!!!

Good fortune favors the prepared so here are a few suggestions for how to be sure you receive and recognize the spiritual messages coming through next week end:

The Sun will be in Virgo, the sign of healthy living habits. To be sure you are alert and able to receive intuitive guidance make a special effort to eat healthy this week.

The full Moon will be in Pisces so while you may be aware of darkness and suffering, put your attention on the possibility of positive outcomes. 

Mercury is also in Virgo the sign of healing AND practical details - so again we are encouraged to have faith - but also to be sensible!

Venus continues to be retrograde in Leo. Back off from outworn relationships, allegiances and beliefs. If someone isn't responding, don't chase after them. 

Mars in Leo. Activate and celebrate what is good in life this week - by Saturday you'll be seeing good all over.

Jupiter in Virgo. The planet of blessings in the sign of style and uniforms suggests you can enhance your chances and improve your luck by dressing for success. Let your clothes do the heavy lifting!

Saturn at the last degrees of Scorpio means it's time to complete old responsibilities. Do whatever you can before the full Moon to bring your promises up to date. Make room for new opportunities!

Uranus retrograde in Aries : Holding back independence. Along with Saturn at the last degrees of Scorpio, this is the planet that's been holding back our breakthrough revelations until we somehow show we can handle our own power. Use the gifts you've been given wisely this week to demonstrate you won't be spoiled by the incredible mind-blowing insights coming up!

Neptune, the planet of intuition, in Pisces is going to be right there next to the Moon at it's full Saturday. This is why I'm saying the planets are lined up to give you a special personal message this week. As Neptune rules those who have been lost or forgotten, this message will not only help revive your own hurt feelings, but you may also get some clues as to how you can be of real practical assistance to your loved ones who are going through hard times now too.

Finally we have Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules death and re-birth. Every month when the Moon meets up with Pluto there is an opportunity to put some chapter of our life to rest and to see where new life is calling. The Moon will join Pluto this month late Tuesday evening. Notice  changes on Tuesday and Wednesday. There's an opportunity to release the past here but we have to recognize and accept this or we might waste a lot of energy trying to hang on or trying to rebuild something that should be let go. This line up may help you see clearly what isn't working but you will need to be patient until the full Moon next Saturday to understand where to focus next.

All in all it's a week full of grand possibilities.
Call me for a reading on your personal opportunity,

Saturn Leaving Scorpio - Last Chance for a Power Grab

I have a Capricorn friend who tends to be a tad negative. Even when she's trying to be upbeat she can't help but say something that brings the conversation down with a thud. Her most common response, whenever someone speaks of a plan that needs a bit of encouragement, is to give a wide smile and say, "That's a great idea! What could possibly go wrong?"  Naturally this steers the conversation to why the plan will fail and soon the whole idea, whether it was to end war or order a pizza, is tossed aside as undoable. This drives me over the top crazy. I can't seem to make her understand that by simply asking this question she is creating the obstacles. Like so many who have not paused to consider how the Universe works, she tends to think of the physical world around us as something outside of us, something beyond our control. But if you look at the world around you as a response to your most dominant thought, and most particularly as a response to any request or question you have been dwelling on, you quickly come to recognize that there is a link so profound, that your thoughts are so powerful, that you may come to be scared to think of anything at all..

Consider, have you ever been furious about something and then a short time later dropped a plate or had something break? Maybe you weren't even the one who broke it, yet you instinctively recognized there was a connection between your inner tension and the outer crash. I compare it to seeing lightening in your brain and then several seconds later hearing the thunder in the world. Or think of a time you were looking for something. You asked yourself over and over, "Where is it?" and then, for no real reason you wandered into another room and just happen to glance about - and there was your missing item! The Universe responds to our dominant thoughts and manifests them.

It is essential for our spiritual growth and indeed for our physical survival that we get this - that we make the connection that the world around us is our own thoughst and feelings become manifest. Einstein talked about this 50 years ago when he said all is energy vibration. Yet we have been so slow to believe - to BE LIVING - this truth, we have ignored and denied our power for so long that we are now on the brink of world wide global disaster. None of our outer attempts to save the planet are powerful enough. No laws, no armies, no miracle scientific breakthroughs will be able to make a difference. The only thing that will work is the awareness that the outer world is a reflection of our inner state.

There is a story that Ghandi was approached by a woman and asked would he please tell her son to stop eating too much candy. Ghandi said that he would - if she would bring the child back in a week. The woman agreed and when she returned a week later Ghandi admonished the boy to stop eating the sweets. The mother, surprised that there was not more to the conversation asked Ghandi why he had not simply told the boy this the week before. "Ah," Ghandi explained, "A week ago I myself had not stopped eating too much candy." Ghandi understood the world is a reflection of our own inner being. He knew the youngster would be a reflection of him and that until he gave up candy himself, his vibration could not strengthen a child to give up candy.

Saturn is the planet of personal responsibility. It is at the very last degrees of the sign of power, Scorpio, now until mid-September. It's placement here makes us aware that it is time for us to recognize the power of our thoughts and words. If we use this time to be particularly reliable - responsible - we will be rewarded with clear, strong, undeniable evidence that our intentions create our personal Universe. 

Do everything you can in the next 30 days to strengthen the power of your word by being completely reliable. Then as Saturn moves into Sagittarius, the sign of philosophy and travel, you will find your inner conviction has become stronger than the outer world - you'll be able to part the sea!

You've got the power!

Jupiter into Virgo - Good Things Coming in Small Packages.

Jolly Jupiter is leaving lavish Leo and wont be back again till 2026. It might be good to pause for a moment now and reflect on all the good times we've had these last twelve months while he was hosting the party. As Leo rules children, romance and creativity you may have strengthened ties with kids, had a romantic fling or maybe recognized your own creative potential this year. But if you let those opportunities slip by fear not. There's a delicious Moon sextile Jupiter aspect coming up tonight - just right for one last blow out before we all have to straighten out and be sensible as the fun God slips into Virgo Tuesday morning.

Jupiter expands and while in colorful creative Leo you may have been inspired to take on big projects. Now that Jupiter is moving into detail oriented Virgo you may find your energy is focused on fine tuning work already begun. Personally I used the energies to update my kitchen and seating area. Jupiter in courageous Leo gave me the nerve to make some big purchases, a stove and a new couch. I probably should have done it earlier in the year though because I ignored the warnings of Venus being retrograde - a clear signal that the love affair would not last. As its turned out the stove is terrific except for one teeny tiny detail - it needs a special part to connect it to my gas line. The part will be here Tuesday - the day Jupiter goes into Virgo! The couch is totally comfortable but it's Jupiter huge and so much brown in my living room is a real simply depressing. Maybe I'll like it better when Jupiter is in Virgo because brown is Virgo's color but Virgo also rules sewing so I think it's more likely I'll take on a Jupiter/large sewing project and make the couch a slip cover.

To recognize for yourself the opportunities Jupiter in Virgo brings, simply consider the meaning of Virgo and where it is in your chart and imagine these areas of your life are all going to be expanded and blessed when Jupiter enters. For example, Virgo rules health, diet and daily routine. With Jupiter in this sign there is an opportunity for easy improvement here. You may find yourself not only motivated to eat better and in general take better care of yourself, it also shouldn't be too hard to create a health routine and stick with it. I predict there will be major breakthroughs in vitamins and food supplements this year. Tiny pills carrying miraculous healing would perfectly fit the Jupiter/Virgo vibration. One warning - as Jupiter rules expansion there could be health issues from over doing.Whether it's over eating or over fasting, Jupiter can be over the top!

Our daily routine usually involves a job so Jupiter blessing your daily routine could mean having work that you really enjoy this next year. If you don't see that as a possibility then make a point of noticing what you do love about your daily routine. By focusing on what you enjoy you're inviting Jupiter to bring you more of it. Of course here again the expansive nature of Jupiter could manifest as just more work piled higher and deeper. Bottom line: the tendency here is for MORE to come to you in your daily routine. Create a routine that's right and you wont go wrong.

A few words now about the effects of Jupiter in Virgo on the political scene. Donald Trump has been center stage this summer while 4 - 5 planets in Leo put the spotlight on circus entertainers. Now with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all going into Virgo the sign of the skilled worker attention will most likely shift to those who demonstrate the more technical skills of a career politician. Unless Trump can prove he's got some workable ideas, his flamboyant style wont be enough to keep him center stage. However, Virgo does represent a man going forward alone so if the Republican nomination does not go to Trump it's conceivable he will run as an independent.

Should be an exciting week!

Saturn Direct in Scorpio: Going Clear

Saturn is one of the most important planets to examine as you follow the transits. It represents your physical reality, the way you see and experience the universe as you have structured it. The location of transiting Saturn in your chart indicates the part of your life that - like it or not - will be showing who you really are. This is why the first "Saturn Return", which happens at age 28 -29 when Saturn in the sky returns to the place it was when we were born, is considered to be a particularly rough transit. It's a time when it seems the rosy colored glasses are removed and we recognize the world isn't giving out any more free passes - that if we're going to achieve, we're going to have to work. The second Saturn Return is considered to be a much happier occasion. It kicks in when we're around 58 - 60 and often coincides with some sort of recognition and reward for all our efforts.

Currently Saturn is in the sign Scorpio, the sign of shared resources, which manifests either as great power from combined efforts or power struggles as one side strives to dominate. His presence here the last couple of years accounts for the mounting feeling we are living in "the end times" - a sense that civilization has somehow reached a tipping point, that all the woes of the world, the pollution, the corruption etc. - can not be righted and that we're heading for global disaster. Saturn briefly entered Sagittarius at the beginning of 2015 and I noticed then there seemed to be a brief period where people were feeling a bit more optimistic but in March it turned retrograde and moved back into Scorpio as if to say, "Okay, you've had a glimpse of how the world could be (Sag is such an optimist!) but before things can be that way we have to go back and clean up the past." Since then the news has been filled with horrific stories of police/government brutality and the abuse of power as Saturn shows us the harsh reality of what our combined energies have created. The good news is that by bringing these patterns to our awareness we are now at a level of consciousness where we are ready to transform them. I think we're going to see strong evidence of this shift in the upcoming Presidential debates. Saturn at the end of Scorpio is going to be bringing ever more secrets out into the light and then when it enters truth loving Sagittarius there is going to be a groundswell of demands that candidates give substantive real answers.

Would you like to know how Saturn in Sagittarius will be demanding you get real? Here are some possibilities:

ARIES: Saturn in Sagittarius is entering your solar 9th house of philosophy, higher knowledge and travel. (Interesting that higher knowledge and travel are ruled by the same sign - travel opens the mind to learning!) Having the harsh reality planet here may bring an opportunity to travel for work related purposes. Be careful to double check your plans because the passport fairy and the hotel angels wont be allowed to help you this time. Keep your schedule simple and realistic.

TAURUS: Saturn activates your 8th house of shared resources this fall. Don't count on windfalls but it should bring you what is owed. Sex may feel more like work than pleasure but if you put a little thought into it the results could be very rewarding. Remember, Saturn brings you what you've earned.

GEMINI: Saturn is going into your 7th house of partnership, dear Gemini. If you're ready for love, Saturn here may bring someone wise and dependable and there could be a bit of an age difference. If it's not your perfect karmic soul-mate however, Saturn in the 7th  means it's better to be single than to settle for anything less than the best.

CANCER: Saturn will be in your 6th house of work and service. While this could bring tedious chores it can also present an opportunity to work your way to the top. Make a vow to do every job for it's own sake and give it your best.

LEO: Sagittarius is a sign that is compatible with your energy so having Saturn here in your solar 5th house will likely turn out to be a good thing. Children may be involved in your work or you may take on some creative responsibility but over all it should be rewarding. There may be a feeling that chores need to be completed before pleasure or somehow pleasure is delayed, but still it's a fortunate line up.

VIRGO: Virgos will have Saturn transiting their 4th house of the home. Any repairs that have been put off will demand attention now and there maybe a sense of loneliness in the home. Another possibility is that an elderly relative moves into the house or that you find you've got some serious responsibilities on your plate. Strive to keep the house clutter free and you may come to enjoy the simplicity.

LIBRA: With serious Saturn in your 3rd house of ideas and communication you may find yourself wanting to know the facts. It's an excellent opportunity for taking classes and learning something that is of actual use. Warning: Saturn does have a tendency to see the glass half empty. Keep your thinking realistic - not pessimistic!

SCORPIO: Saturn going into your 2nd house of money and possessions demands you keep your financial affairs in order. It may feel like every nickle coming in has somebody else's name on it this fall. The good news is that Saturn here assures you will have what you need - you just may have to buy it at the $1 store.

SAGITTARIUS: Saturn in your sign will bring you opportunities to get focused. This needn't be a bad thing, though. As Saturn rules Capricorn, the sign of your money house, having the ruler of your money on your Sun encourages you to spend money on yourself! If there's any kind of body work you need done - braces? Massage? Tattoo? - now is the time to go for it!

CAPRICORN: Saturn in Sag means he's in your 12th house of hidden matters. If you've been inclined to tell everything you know to everyone you meet this may be when you learn how to keep a few things private. In fact, you may find you just want to drop off the radar screen entirely. Before you go into hiding completely however, consider the possibilities of getting a job where you are working back stage. You could be the power behind the throne!

AQUARIUS: Saturn entering your 11th house of friends and group associations will manifest some fated ties coming into your life. You may feel like pulling back from group activities which could bring heavy duties but you might also connect with a wise old soul willing to guide you to make all your hopes and wishes come true.

PISCES: I know you don't usually go for the spotlight, but Saturn up in your 10th house of fame and reputation is going to bring significant attention to you and your career. Make sure all your paper work is in order and a well deserved promotion could be heading your way.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius for the next couple of years (until December 2017) but we tend to be able to discern most clearly what it's message is all about when it first changes signs. Therefore, I suggest you make a special point of noticing the affects of this planet in Sag this fall. Once you recognize it's presence - and demands! - you'll find it much easier to flow with from then on.

Saturn doesn't have to be a negative, it's really just trying to light up your path
