Astro 101 — Introduction to the Planets in Astrology

12Introduction to the Planets in Astrology

In our last session, we discussed the astronomy of the solar system.  I described the major components that we use in astrology of the planets and other entities (energies) that revolve around the Sun.  In case you missed that blog you can always backtrack and read “The Astronomy of Astrology” at your leisure.  Additionally, I think it is time that everyone gets a copy of their horoscope which you can get for free on my website.   If you do not understand the chart, you can always check out the tutorial that I created to help you understand your horoscope.

Let’s now begin with this lesson.

Your Weekend Dose — December 10-11, 2016

Do the holidays make you feel overwhelmed?

I mean there is all the planning, the gift buying, and the people to visit.

It’s a never-ending list of celebratory activities that leave many frustrated and it gets worse as the Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) deadline gets near.

Well, this weekend we get an astrological opportunity to get everything done and out of the way.

Let me tell you how.

On Saturday, Mercury moving through Capricorn forms a sextile to Neptune.  Your creative juices will flow, and this is a splendid time to decide which gifts you are going to give to people, and your sensitivity to them will be heightened, and I find using Mercury-Neptune connections ideal for giving that ‘perfect’ gift for the people in your life that you love.

We also have a conjunction of the Sun and Saturn, which makes us want to get things done and focus on the tasks at hand.  This aspect gives us the ability to plan and organize and since it is not real social, we can get done all the things that often annoy us and get it out of the way so we can enjoy the rest of the season without stress or further annoyances.

On Sunday, the Moon will move through sensual Taurus.  Taurus is the ‘sit back and relax’ sign because it enjoys simple pleasures like a good massage, a luxurious dinner, and even a bit of creamy, decadent chocolate for desert.  It’s the universe’s way of giving us a ‘cheat day’ so that we can enjoy the finer things in life.

*Storm Update*   I am taking next week off from the Daily does – we pretty much only have lunar aspects that are going to happen, so I thought it would be as good of a time as any to finish your Astrology of 2017 forecast, which is my present to you every Christmas.

Be amazing!
