In The Stars

Esoterical Astrology

by Risa D’Angeles

International Women’s Day was March 8, however IWD is celebrated throughout March. Review health, wealth and welfare. The theme for 2009 is “Women and men united to end violence against women and girls.” Many towns create their own themes and celebrations. See: 

ARIES: Although you’re considered rather wild, there are traditional aspects of yourself and these help you to be successful. Few know this about you. Those qualities will now be internalized so you can assess your personal value. It’s not how much money you have. It’s more about perseverance, reliability and being steadfast in adversity and challenges. 

TAURUS: Your patience and deliberateness are how you assess anything new. You’re also visionary, continually developing an illumined mind, influenced by the Pleiades, Aldebaran and Alcyone (stars in the Pleiades) and bringing forth the wisdom of the Buddha. When faced with a monetary situation you’re quick and instinctive. These are your gifts. Ponder them with a partner as Venus retrogrades.

GEMINI: It’s most important that your work in the world aligns with your sense of self and values. Gemini is a complex, dual sign. You have a fluid mind, much information that must be filtered through your emotional field. Therefore that field must be clear and pure with no judgments. This must be developed. You’re the sign of hidden treasures. Security for you isn’t wealth. It’s emotional ethics and who and what you love.

CANCER: There’s a challenge now for you to emerge from under your Cancer shell, have a sense of adventure, step beyond comfort and tend to things more edgy and cultural. What would that be? Build your sense of charisma (heart-self) with others. It furthers self-expression and creativity, things you deeply seek. Above everything else, you must have fun. What is fun for you?

LEO: Most Leos are charming. Some are hidden. But all are magnetic, an important quality to understand because it attracts others to you. When you are aware of this you will either be kind and compassionate or will create fear if your power doesn’t include equal love. In their hearts what are people seeking when encountering you? Light, intelligence, vitality, discipline, direction and guidance and love. Do you understand these qualities?

VIRGO: Within your excellent qualities of order, discipline and lists of organized ideas, you also seek diplomacy. All Virgos are learning tact, refinement and how to relate with sophistication and to act with right relations. All are high value but perhaps not conscious yet. It’s good to know these are the seeds planted within all Virgos leading later to the art of cooperation, conciliation through negotiation.

LIBRA: Your smile and eyes invite others to talk about themselves, and to be friends. Libra on the soul level creates right relations, fairness, justice and kindness. If you are not within this expanded soul reality, visualize it. The results will strengthen your fear and vulnerability around money and resources and the boundaries you have created to protect yourself will be less critical and more loving. 

SCORPIO: You’re aware that whatever you do often challenges others. This is your task. As your life is ceaselessly challenged to transform and regenerate, you ask this of others. Because your life has such intensity, you must schedule consistent times for rest and retreat, times to gather strength and rediscovery inner meaning and purpose. Vision is found here, too. 

SAGITTARIUS: Although you usually view life with optimism and a hopeful vision and because you’re an imaginative thinker who sees signs and reads oracles in every situation, you have a sense of being duty bound, responsible, traditional and conservative. Most aren’t aware of this as it hides behind constant enthusiasm. Working under rules and regulations, you have a very serious side. This you must begin to value. It is your discipline and your wisdom.

CAPRICORN: You exhibit great control playing the role of the eldest child, parent, wise one. Traditions are most important. But there is another valuable part to you — being progressive and inventive. Through these you enter the future, making you different than most. Often people can’t quite figure out who you are with your abilities to change quickly and to offer everyone freedom to be you and me. 

AQUARIUS: It’s important to acknowledge that you, like the planet Uranus, are distinctly different than most. This unusual planet rules your entire life. Value your differentness. It’s unique and beloved.

PISCES: The two signs most misunderstood are Scorpio and Pisces. Often the fish is seen as wandering about, a bit too idealistic and sensitive. In the outer world you can seem lost and dreamy, if not confused. But there is more to you. You are courageous when someone is in danger. You are independent and reward others for their innate gifts. When you are spontaneous a light fills the air. When you are sad you fall into despair. Always take action. It brings you freedom.
