SharitaStar.LunaroscopesNew Moon in Leo, 14 August Where Will You Feel Initiations & Fresh Starts?

What Are Your Feelings? Know Your Point of Attraction
The Law of Attraction promises that our feelings guide our thinking as we create our lives. Lunar energy is astrologically in charge of how our human emotions play out down here below. Each month, a New Moon marks a waxing cycle promoting start up energy while a Full Moon unfolds a waning cycle allowing completion, reflection and release. LunarOScopes capture this natural rhythm with specific forecasting advice, timing when your Sun Sign naturally benefits from initiation or letting go.

Being our Moon changes Zodiac Signs every couple of days, so too do our feelings down here below mirror these precise patterns that ultimately change our moods and sensations. Keeping our emotions healthy allows us to properly manifest our individual lives, as these cycles flavor us all uniquely.

New Moons start Waxing Phases, Let’s Begin
This two-week cycle normally favors actions involving anything new, as increasing energy moves forward throughout one half of your Zodiac Pie until the next Full Moon in Pisces 29 August.

Moon Void of Courses (Moon VOC) Time Out Periods
Even under a Waxing Phase, you will not wish to plan, plant, purchase, or initiate anything of importance when the Moon is Void of Course. This astrological passage occurs every couple days during our business and workweek, marking the critical request to take up in more reflective acts in solitude and engaging in quieter soul activities. Check in weekly with Empowerscopes on Empower Radio for the calendar’s most current Moon Void of Course times.

In Progress: Venus Retrograde in Virgo/Leo 25 July to 06 September
The request to review, reflect and redo concerning values, money, beauty & relationships.
Venus Retrograde passages specifically favor to carefully plan ahead for its’ 6 week passage. Venus is our planet who guides over our values, money, securities, beauty and relationships of any kind. During a Retrograde cycle, her backtracking through the Zodiac asks for us to not make important moves for the future concerning these areas of our lives. Reconsidering values across the board within our relationships, holding off on any beauty enhancement (personal or material), reviewing our financial securities through research, looking out for bargains, and remembering to seek to understand make for great practices during this cycle of reflection.

It indicates victory after a long struggle, for the Crown of the Magi is gained only after long initiation, much soul testing and various other tests of determination.

Redefining Values, Finances & Relationships in Summer 2015

VenusRX

Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

Should the very word “retrograde” typically scare the average star follower, this is merely because they are not in full awareness of how to optimally work with any given cycle of reflection rather than fight against it. Our planet of love, harmony, and luxury hasn’t taken a real vacation since late December 2013 and January 2014 when she was evening the score in Capricorn.

For the next few weeks -25 July to 06 September- as our Sun transits in very early Virgo and the majority of Leo, Venus will be resting up once more. Even though we aren’t as warned to watch out for zaniness as we are under such inner planetary reflection as Mercury and Mars request- a Venus Retrograde brings us to a deeper sense of what we value within our lives, what’s it all really worth and how we truly relate to it all.

What To Reflect Upon Under Venus Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1.Beauty
All beauty enhancements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.”

2. Money/Finances
Curious as to why the stock market computers went “silent” for a few hours on 08 July under the current Approach to Venus Retrograde? Aside from the possibilities of computer glitches, (equally as our Messenger Mercury was precisely on the tipping point of Gemini entering Cancer to add to this occurrence) you’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoiding any kind of luxury purchase is highly favored.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Wonderful Ways To Appreciate Venus Retrograde
BE charitable with money.
WATCH over-spending.
AVOID buying luxurious items, moving money to increase its’ value, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.
DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus Rx approved!
BE GRATEFUL for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what is worthy of gratitude and appreciation: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, music performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it all at this time. The older it is, the better.
REVISIT creative adventures already in progress. Reflect upon ways to improve them.

Where To Reflect | 0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo
This is the specific area of our Zodiac Pie that will be calling for a passage of reflection and review. Collectively, this retreat within The Virgin & The Lion specifies that we take a slow, patient pace here, and dive into what these signs request when it comes to developing both our discriminating and heartfelt responses.

Reflection in Virgo | 25 July, 5:23am EDT to 31 July, 11:27am EDT
The calling for pure, controlled, service-oriented and limited affections ask for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of correction, adjustments and details striving for perfection, all you will see that needs “fixing” will be revealed as a sense of self-surrender will be present at this time.

Reflection in Leo | 31 July 11:27am EDT to 06 September, 4:29am EDT
The calling for whole-hearted, faithful, inspiring and loyal affections asks for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of drama, creativity and nobility, all you will see that seeks to be realigned and balanced will reflect the best through returning to generosity and loyalty from our heart in order to make the proper reassessments.

What About YOU during this Cycle of Reflection?
The simplicity of knowing your sun sign is a great place to start while we all take up in value-oriented review. Where are you favored to place focus, taking time in retreat- to admire, weight the pros and cons, and then eliminate what is not worth the effort any longer?

If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant, this simple key will equally apply to your natal chart’s advice for this passage. Yet, we do always advise, have a professional astrologer do the accurate math for you.

Aries: I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 25 to 31 July
I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 31 July to 06 Sept

Taurus: I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 25 to 31 July
I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 31 July to 06 Sept

Pisces: I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others 25 to 31 July

Take these personalized areas of the life and see where you are asked to reflect upon Venus’s backwards journey. What is no longer of value to you or seemingly “worth it” from the particular area of life that Venus Retrograde is calling for your review, is extremely favored for release and review.

Thinking in Simpleton Terms
Simplicity and making life less complicated is always favored under any retrograde cycle, so the reflective tone of it can succeed with flying colors. We will stress again to remember no matter what sign you are, any creative endeavor involving the completely brand new in the areas of beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery, etc.), tend to not go over well. Whatever already exists or remains an unfinished creative project, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them for improvement. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to a harmonious completion under this passage.

Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions for long-term success until after 06 September 2015, (but remember again Mercury goes Retrograde within days of Venus returning to Direct motion upon 17 September until the 09 October, so be extra cautious with genuine long term decisions for success.)

Venus Retrogrades become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain, (and they’ll be ever proud of them under Leo’s energy). Before any boasting roars, they also may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if it does lean to the luxurious. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus and solution seeking research.

The Approach & Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Be aware that decisions and actions made as Venus started her approach -on 21 June while going Direct from 14 degrees Leo until Retrograde motion begins 25 July- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 06 September, the shadow will prevail until 08 October when Venus returns to 0 degrees Virgo, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde.

Decisions will be rather challenged as our summer turns into autumn, as our last Mercury Retrograde of 2015 runs 17 September to 09 October, whose Approach begins 28 August. As approaches, shadows, and retrogrades all intersect and overlap, our inner planets will be practically scream from above to reflect and reassess in the appropriate areas of our lives in which they call.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attracts herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the real truth of how we can reap rewards and stay in true tune with her request to revisit how we earn, understand and relate as we return to save our lives.

Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
Appreciate this time for reassessment where The Virgin & The Lion seek to align the details to bring matters of the heart to become more aligned with the decisions your head makes in your Zodiac Pie Dear Stars. Once 06 September comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness within your life unlike any other in quite some time.
