☆♥*♥☆The Hierophant~V~Taurus☆♥*♥☆

By Lorraine Valente

The Hierophant is symbolic of belief systems, groups, and rules within the group. He is a religious figure and represents an official “teacher” within the church, school, teams, companies, and clubs as well as attending to the facts and procedures within these groups. The need to conform is indicated. Being part of the establishment and staying within convention is another possibility. Speaking the truth and listening to ones inner voice is important.

☆♥*♥☆ Happy Birthday Taurus! ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

For those born between April 20th ~ May 19th  

The Key Phrase is: I Own.

Taurus is a fixed (directed, willful), earth (grounded, stable) sign located in the 1st quadrant (self oriented/personal) of the Eastern Hemisphere of the chart. Because Taurus resides in the 2nd house of the zodiac and is ruled by the planet Venus, beauty and possessing objects of worth are important to Taurus. Material belongings and possessions bring a sense of peace to security-minded Taurus. In a previous Lunar Notes blog, we discussed how the sign of Aries inhabits the 1st house of the natural zodiac. The first house is the cusp of the Ascendant, or more commonly known as the Rising Sign.

☆♥*♥☆ Relationship Needs~Self Oriented Versus Other Oriented ☆♥*♥☆

By Lorraine Valente
     The astrological chart is designed like a pizza, cut into 12 slices. If we cut the pie/chart in the center from left (East) to right (West) we would form the Ascendant/Descendant relationship axis. (this direction is the reverse of what we are taught about traditional direction)

☆♥*♥☆ EROS~ASTEROID #433 ☆♥*♥☆

     “Eros has sex for the intimacy and power it brings and for the potential to transform by touching the divine soul of another, at whatever cost”(Falconer, 2004).  It is Eros who soars all over the earth, equipped with his bow and arrow, “bewitching” all the arrow strikes. The symbolism is such that erotic love and passion strikes us when we least expect it. The way we respond to these sudden feelings are dependent on our temperament and how evolved we are. Do our lives become chaotic and unpredictable? Do we become obsessed and possessed by these passions? When Eros transits our birth chart, it may indicate areas of our lives where erotic love and passion may awaken and have the power to transform us.

☆♥*♥☆ Happy Birthday Aries! ☆♥*♥☆

Happy Birthday Aries! The Key Phrase is: I Am.

For those born between March 20th – April 20th~Spring Equinox

     Mi, mi ,me, me…..ahem…clearing my throat to make way for ARIES~! Aries is a Cardinal (action oriented, self starter), fire (intuition) sign located in the 1st quadrant (self oriented/personal) of the Eastern Hemisphere of the chart. Because Aries’ ruling planet is Mars, the need for action, movement and being first is symbolic of people with Aries prominent in their chart. Aries inhabits the 1st house of the natural zodiac. The Ascendant is the cusp of the first house as many know as the Rising Sign. Because Aries arrives immediately after the dreamy, Neptunian 12th house, when Aries arrives on the scene, everyone knows about it! Think of the first house cusp as the emergence from the amniotic fluid (the hypnotic, watery 12th house). If you consider of the symbolism, when we are “birthed” it is often rather traumatic. There are people everywhere; lights, camera, action and out pops baby! Baby emerging from the womb cries out, “Here I am”, Hear me scream, I have arrived! Everyone, come hither! Well, this is Aries...or the assertive, action oriented red planet Mars makinghis presence known to all. Think and visualize the image of a Ram. The Ram can usually seen “butting” heads with other Rams….”ramming into” something or some one to have their way.…get the picture? This is the masculine principle at its best.

☆♥*♥☆ Spring Equinox~International Astrology Day 2010 ☆♥*♥☆

     March 20/21st heralds the entrance of the astronomical Sun into the sign of 00 degrees of Aries. Emerging from Pisces and the 12th house, we reluctantly emerge from a surreal, embryonic cradle, starry-eyed and impressionable. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and the starting point by which we begin our journey and evolutionary cycles.

     0 Degrees of Aries is also called the Aries Point or AP. Astronomically, this point marks the place where the Sun crosses the equatorial plain in the North, or the Sun/Earth midpoint. Uranian Astrologers link 0 degrees to all the cardinal signs. Cardinal energy (Aries, Cancer, Libra, & Capricorn) initiates, motivated into action, and requires a physical, creative, or emotional outlet. Cardinal energy represents movement from an inner, passive quality to an assertive, outer quality. It is the will to be noticed, like seedlings pushing their way through the soils surface towards the warmth of light. Some would say that the first house and 0 Aries is where Spirit emerges and the starting point likened to The Fool's Journey in the Tarot.
