“Blinded by Desire”

*featuring the work of @thisreo @crystalcaines_ got now! Go check out her new song “No Drama”. Had so much fun working on these visuals for her new project! More to come! #NODRAMA#crystalcaines #rap #aftereffects#photoshop #design #art #adobe #trippy#music #beats*

On Thursday evening (EST), action-loving Mars moves into pleasure-seeking Taurus, a sign of Venus. Attractive Venus is retrograde in action-oriented Aries, a sign of Mars. Both planets together parallel the vortex of desire we experience in our lives. Mars describes how we perceive the struggle for what we want. Venus, for how we perceive what will please and soothe us.

These two planets then are said by some to be in a “mutual reception” now. (There are technical reasons why others, like myself, don’t believe this is exactly right, though. We’ll save that for another post or class.) But Mars feels more at home in Scorpio, the opposite sign to Taurus, and Venus in Libra, opposite to Aries. Both planets, then, are far from their respective homes. So, both planets are said to be in a “mutual deception” instead. They’re like two drunken revelers attempting to lead each other home. You can imagine how that ends up.

This can be a particularly gnarly week for feeling that mutual deception. We can easily assume there’s more spark, more clarity with our desires than there is. This is when Mars’ determined power in Taurus often feels frustrated by the careful plodding of that sign. Venus is doubly unsatisfied. She has to contend with her retrograde. And in Aries, she doubts her own powers of magnetic attraction in a sign that requires initiative instead. Both Venus and Mars now must learn to camp out or wait for a ride instead of a drunken traipse to nowhere. We can draw the same lessons.

We must remember to look closer at what keeps us glued to another or something. And slow our roll without losing any of our passion. Both actions will keep us clearer minded and sighted. A full moon on Sunday will help with that too. Unfortunately, in the US, that won’t help us deal with the madness that often comes with changing to Daylight Saving Time on that day. Remember to spring your clock forward an hour.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

In recent weeks, I’ve talked about how the two fish of the symbol of Pisces reveal a deep mystery. One fish swims deep out of sight. Yet, it must be fed with recognition and attention. The other fish swims on the surface, taking in what’s around you. But the two fish are bound together. This full moon and Mars-Venus connection is all about how you tie your heart’s desires with what’s in the world. And vice-versa. You’ve done the internal work. Now, you feel the pull of the external world to try out the ideas and notions you’ve marinated. Do that, but stay receptive, both to what comes up within and without.

Affirmation:
I am active and attuned to what churns within and without.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

You likely won’t believe me on this, and that’s okay. But your most stunning achievement now isn’t necessarily what you make happen in the world. It is what you make of yourself. And this rush and understanding won’t likely come at a finish line. Or when you look at yourself in the mirror and shout an approving “Damn!” It will likely come when you feel the pain of an under-used muscle. Or when you try on a piece of clothing you suspected you wouldn’t like at first. Then you love it! You’re, indeed, spectacular. One surprising moment at a time.

Affirmation:
Who I am and become, one moment at a time, is my most significant achievement.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

With Mars in your sign, you could fall for that trap that you should charge ahead with any and everything. Nope. (That’s unless you like falling into traps.) You avoid the trap by moving gently, allowing yourself to feel the sensuality of each movement. Charging betrays an impatience or fear that you’ll miss something. Worse, that someone else or something can goad you to rush rather than when you’re ready. Stay in control of how you steer toward your desires. Trust that what you desire is moving toward you as you’re moving toward it.

Affirmation:
I know that my desires are steadily moving toward me as I smoothly move toward them.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You won’t benefit from casually discussing what you want from others. Rehearse what you want to say and how you’ll say or write it. You might feel better speaking off the cuff normally. But rehearsing helps in two important ways. First, shaping how you articulate what you want increases your chances of choosing the right words that’ll move someone else. A “please” properly placed can make a big difference in a sentence. Poorly placed and it sounds like a whine. Second, in thinking more about saying what you want, your mind or needs could change. You’ll need to ask for something else. You might as well be sure.

Affirmation:
I rehearse saying what I desire to others as practice for receiving what’s right for me.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

Falling out of favor with some folks can be a mixed blessing. But we often feel the curse first. It’s normal to relish the accolades of colleagues or peers. But only if you feel a genuine and mutual respect. Perhaps the apparently lost respect wasn’t as mutual as you thought. Everyone who likes you ain’t your friend. And everyone who doesn’t isn’t your enemy. Respect is sometimes more important than who likes you. Perhaps now you might also realize that you lost respect for some folks a while ago. Enjoy the freedom from pretenses. Now, you can connect with those who can and will build more of your dreams with you. #NoFakeFriends

Affirmation:
I curate mutual respect with others to build dreams & release sandcastle friendships.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Sometimes your virtue and goodness have to be their own reward. The more you expect others to appreciate what you do, the more likely you are to be disappointed. This doesn’t mean you should shrug off ingratitude. Or suffer people’s trash behavior. But you’re pressed now to look closer at your motivations first. Not only why or how others respond. That’s where you can get distracted. When you’re clear of mind and heart, then what others do will appear more like gravy than what has to feed you.

Affirmation:
I let all my opponents work hardest and most for what will likely be their own ass whipping

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

If “knowledge is power,” then practicing what you know must make you even more powerful. A synthesis happens when you use what you know. But you’ll have to make some sacrifices to achieve that perfect blend. You’ll either have to invest more time or money to have that power. That might be the hard part for you since you might not see how you can give any more now. Perhaps that’s when you have to surrender more control. You will have to get some help with other things that you usually like to see to perfection. Delegate wisely to someone who might be up to the task. It’s a risk. But that’s always the nature of sacrifice.

Affirmation:
I willingly sacrifice time, money or control to fuse knowledge & practice into genuine power.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

You’ll likely find it easier to know your own mind now. Perhaps that sounds like a strange turn of phrase to you—to know your own mind. We “live” in our minds 24/7. How could we NOT know our own minds? This is clearer at times when you feel like you’ve lost your mind. You might see how you’ve been distant from your true thoughts. How you’ve looked at a self in the mirror that’s not really you. How your own thoughts concealed your true feelings. Then that’s when you can come to know your own mind again. Others might try to get you not to recognize yourself. But there’s no going back once remember who you are and have a taste of what you want.

Affirmation:
I know my own mind and no one else can know it better than me.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

The “boomerang effect” will likely be in full-on mode now. You might even read this as karma. Boomerang is cleaner and clearer to use because what you cast out is likely to come back to you faster now. No mysterious force of Indian origin need be evoked. Just pay attention to what you mete out to others. Think about that before you give someone a good tongue-lashing. It’s probably not enough to stop at the “golden rule.” (Hey, you actually might enjoy a good tongue-lashing, depending on what it’s for!) Better to ask if whatever you’re doling out is a necessary thing in someone’s world? Don’t throw it out there if you can’t be clear. After all, never forget that the boomerang was a serious Aboriginal hunting weapon before it was a toy.

Affirmation:
I share with others what I believe makes other be and feel better.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

There are two ways to “go micro” this week. One of them isn’t too good for you. That’s when you obsess over a relatively minor detail while losing sight of the whole. For instance, you fixate on finding the right color and texture of paper for a snail mail invite. But you don’t finish your design for it or even send it out on time. The better way to go micro is to keep your priorities straight. That usually means you give the most attention and detail to what’s essential, like detailing the design of a snail mail invite first.

Affirmation:
I reserve my best focus and energy for the most important details.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Maybe “charity starts at home” because that’s where we have to be most mindful of it. It’s easiest to take the folks we love and cherish for granted. We assume that those closest to us know our best selves. But that finest image of yourself can become real easy to forget if a less attentive, kind and loving vision shows up daily. We don’t have to go to extremes here. No one’s saying you’ve become a monster. But have you been as kind, romantic, or gracious as possible as you feel more on the uptick these days? Forgive yourself if you haven’t. After all, that’s where true charity must start, right?

Affirmation:
I strive to show up as my kindest and most attentive self to those I love, including myself.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

What makes you one of the most doggedly determined signs of the Zodiac is not your high-minded ideals. Your ideals mostly reflect where you want to land up. What grounds you is a deep conviction about right and wrong. That’s why it’s important to be sure what you’re doing is right. You can’t assume that. That requires you thinking or talking things through. Cuz once you know, like Aquarian Rosa Parks, you’re going to stay on whatever bus you’re riding until you walk off to your destination, or someone drags you out.

Affirmation:
I ground away at my assumptions until I am certain about my convictions on an issue
