MONDAY - APRIL 22, 2013

Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

THE MOON IS IN VIRGO TODAY! Keywords: analytical, health, hygiene, critical, perfection, fitness, routine, in-service, volunteer, co-workers, employees, daily regimen, organization, scheduling, neatness, clean

The Moon in Virgo is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode.

Well this is a big week! We are 2 days out from completing the 2 week period following the New Moon in Aries that occurred on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 and we are 3 days out from experiencing the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. Folks, I have been doing a lot of set-up writing for this week so please click back a few days (one day at a time) to play catch-up. If you have been coming to this site daily then you are set-up just right. Keep your new beginning game face on because you don't want to turn into a slacker now. Heck, you've come this far! Remember, click back a few days and keep yourself informed and in the game.

Well I have to tell you, I'm really diggin' on the Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn connection. Today this trine is in an applying degree, which means the two planets (Venus and Pluto) are slowly coming together where they will meet up in the same (exact) degree. Today, Venus is at 08 degrees and Pluto is at 11 degrees. On Wednesday, April 24, 2013 they will come together in 'exact' aspect to each other (trine) with Venus in Taurus at 11 degrees and Pluto in Capricorn at 11 degrees. Notice both Venus and Pluto are in the earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn). All signs of the same element (air, earth, fire or water) are ALWAYS trine. Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo are always trine each other. Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio are always trine each other. Aquarius, Gemini and Libra are always trine each other. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are always trine each other. On Thursday, April 25, 2013 Venus and Pluto will begin to move apart and this is called separating degrees because they are now separating and growing further apart in degrees. Easy Peasy!

This Venus trine Pluto situation is favorable. Trines show up as talents and advantages. They also show areas which are the line of least resistance. Trines can make us lazy and unaware because they are so easy, which means we could easily let this energy slip by unnoticed because there is a lack of motivation. Let's be honest, easy isn't really all that motivating. We usually want something we can't have. Oh such spoiled little brats we are! This would be a Good time to check your natal charts for all of your trines. (winky wink)

Back to Venus trine Pluto . . this aspects brings about enjoyment with committment and it also likes a little bit of challenge and chase. If your current relationship feels like demands have been placed on you that involve you changing, this aspect will give you the ability to make the necessary changes. We are in the mood for Love now and we are prepared to fight for it! This aspect (Venus trine Pluto) brings about intense romance. In fact, it is this aspect that causes people to fall in Love at first sight. Those with this aspect in their natal chart will have a pattern of Love at first sight relationships. This aspect won't let you waste your romantic affections but it will prompt you to use them. Remember from yesterday's writing, Full Moon's ALWAYS have a relationship tone to them. It's interesting how the Libra Moon, which is all about relationships and companionship winds down the 2 week period that began with the New Moon in Aries. Then the very next day we experience a Full Moon. Many people will experience a bright moonbeam shining directly on their relationship this week.

The Virgo Moon is still supporting you and really doesn't want you to procrastinate and waste your time. Not now! Not after all we've been through over the past 2 weeks. Are you kidding me? Keep in mind that the Virgo Moon always says, "Mind over matter" and whatever you put your mind to you can accomplish anything. That's why those who have a North Node Virgo can manifest from the mind into matter faster than a locomotive. I have a North Node Virgo, so naturally I LOVE this Virgo Moon. The Virgo Moon says, "Manifest Destiny!" I'm certain I told you this before about my 5th grade teacher but I'll tell you again anyway because it's Good stuff. I will never forget my 5th grade teacher (back in 1971-72, Mrs. Farley) always yelling out, "Manifest Destiny!" just before we took a test. As a 5th grader, I always felt like I was the only kid who understood her. Maybe I was. (winky wink)

The Virgo Moon is moving through your 4th house. Since Virgo and Gemini both like to be organized then you should be organizing your space at home and creating a healthier environment. Gemini likes to be organized because they don't want to be slowed down and Virgo likes to be organized because they are so nit-picky. Although Virgo is better at organizing someone else than themselves. So use this energy to clear, clean and organize your space. Start thinking about buying property or more property. All I'm asking you to do is start "thinking" about it. Gemini enjoys having two places of residence more than anyone else. You could have a home in one place and a small bungalow somewhere else . . a home away from home. Put it in your head now and start creating your future. "Manifest Destiny!"

For Gemini's this two week time period from New Moon to Full Moon involves your 11th house of Aries and coming to a completion in your 5th house of Libra as you can see from the flow of your Solar Chart below. It will then set you up for the Stellium in Taurus, which you can see from the flow chart below that it will impact your 12th house. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The flow for your Solar Chart looks like this. Your Sun Sign Gemini would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Cancer 2nd house, Leo 3rd house, Virgo 4th house, Libra 5th house, Scorpio 6th house, Sagittarius 7th house, Capricorn 8th house, Aquarius 9th house, Pisces 10th house, Aries 11th house and Taurus 12th house.
