2018 Bridal Trends for the 12 Zodiac Signs

Venus in Aries- Anne Barge 

Venus in Aries ladies are assertive in their power and fair better in clean simple classic dresses that will not take the attention away from their self confident auras. Take a cue from Anne Barge’s 2018 Bridal Collection- a nod to the 1960s featuring Brigitte Bardot hairdos, deep v necklines, bows, and classic silhouettes, with a dash of lace, or try a pantsuit from Viktor & Rolf’s minimalist collection that screams miss Venus in Aries- Audrey Hepburn.

Venus in Taurus- Elie Saab

Venus in Taurus ladies are all about luxury and comfort. Feminine silhouettes, pink, lace, and tulle bring the Venusian feminine energy out for these brides. Go for an Elie Saab princess gown. Imagine your big day as a sepia Lana Del Rey music video, full of pink flower crowns, sparkling jewels, and sunset peach skies.

New Moon in Aries Oracle

Anna Karenina is not simply a tale of aristocratic rendezvous, satin petticoat dresses, glitzy ballrooms, and lies and betrayals as cold as a Russian winter, rather, this is a story about self autonomy, the major lesson of our New Moon in Aries. Anna (Aries) refused to let the social codes of Russian aristocracy (Libra) rule her life, rather she followed the dictates of her heart to the extreme, purposely rebelling against society,  rather than upholding her responsibility as a mother. Anna needed to uphold her role as a mother to ensure the well being of her son, but Anna wanted to freely follow her passion, which involved having an affair. Anna’s misaligned values ultimately led to her downfall. Our New Moon in Aries conjunct Venus Rx in Aries is offering us an opportunity to check in with our hearts to ensure that we are not needing our wants, but wanting our needs. This is the alchemical code for self-autonomy, when we are able to forge ahead with our passions that are truly in alignment with the essence of who we are. Anna was insistent that love trumped duty, but it was her dutiful commitment to love rather than her love of duty that saw her fall from grace. What’s ironic is that there is something admirable about following your heart even when it’s looked down upon from the Libran mirror. When we embrace the pioneering spirit of Anna Karenina by being true to ourselves and values, only then will true love and passion prevail.

New Moon in Aries: Soul Soil

3:57 AM UT- March 28

10:57pm ET- March 27

7:57pm PDT- March 27
Moonbeams- new beginnings, fertilization, self-love.

This lunation marks the beginning of a new moon cycle in our cosmic new year. This is the perfect time to start setting some new year’s resolutions and for some soul gardening as I like to call it. New Moons are always about following your dreams without hesitation, and without balance. With 6 planets in Aries right now, Sun, Moon, Venus, Eris, Uranus, and Mercury, this is adding a warrior like energy to the mix. Aries marks the beginning of the zodiac and the creation point. Aries is the child of the cosmos. It is through the innocence of this sign that makes it in fact, the most mature sign of Astrology. It is when we are young that we are not moulded or shaped by external conditionings. We gravitate towards our passions, and we live and breath our purpose, given the right conditions. That connection to source is what endows us with its wisdom. We have integrated the spiritual downloads of Pisces and are now ready to set them on fire in Aries and to ground them into reality in Taurus.

As I mentioned, New Moons are not about balance. This is not the time to ways the pros and cons or to listen to what everyone else has to say. We are to find something we are passionate about and to just go for it! What makes this moon a little tricky, is that we have Venus in Aries Retrograde conjunct the moon at this time. We are weeding out the garden, re-evaluating our lives, figuring out who we are. Once the garden has been weeded out, we are then able to add some fertilizer to the soil. This is where the masculine energy of Mars comes into effect. Mars contains all of the nutrients we need to make a healthy flowerbed. Passion, drive, energy, and innocence, and self-love. The challenge with Mars is that if we don’t know who we are and what we want, then the passion, drive, and energy don’t have anywhere to go. Mars is in Taurus, the sign ruled by Libra, and doesn’t know quite what to do in the earthy mansion.Since Venus and Mars can’t see each other at this time, both planets have to integrate the energies of their opposites, and to learn the lessons of their opposites.This is when Mars needs to go inwards and light the internal flame. The fumes of this fire will be self-love. Like a flower, Venus needs the light of love to turn its attention to, just like flowers use heliotropism to absorb the rays of the sun. Jupiter in Libra retrograde opposite this lunation is asking us to integrate the masculine and feminine, and with the fumes of self-love satisfying the airy energy of Libra, you can count on this New Moon as being a major self-love journey.

The overall oppositional energy of the New Moon in Aries of it not wanting balance, but needing balance due to the Venus conjunction, is the overall theme of this year. Through understanding who we are by working with opposing energies, we can then align our wants with our needs and vice a versa. When the two become aligned, this is self-autonomy in its purest form, and the major lesson of Venus in Aries retrograde. Wanting our needs will be the roots that take hold.

Venus Retrograde in Aries Oracle

I have been focusing on Venus RX in Aries quite a lot lately, as I was born with this placement in my natal chart. I also feel this is the most important retrograde we experience here on earth as it is an opportunity for us to leap forward in our evolution. This is a time to get clarity on what our values and needs are, to ask the most important questions of “Who am I?” “What is important to me?” Learning how to have a deeper relationship to yourself is the only way you can develop a deeper sense with source. You have to go inwards to go outwards. Enjoy the freedom of being yourself.

Audrey Hepburn who was born with this natal placement is the perfect archetype for this energy. She was able to have a deep relationship with herself through her acting career, and through suffering the terrors of war, devoted much of her later life to humanitarian causes. Her romantic life was troubled but it was when she looked to the suffering of others (Libra polarity) that she found her purpose.

Rose quartz is the stone of self love and can be of great help during this time.

Mariah Carey’s (who was also born with this placement) first number 1 single ‘Vision of Love’ is a song about having a strong loving connection to source. As a Venus RX she must have subconsciously known that when you embrace the love of source, you see and feel love everywhere.

Waxing Crescent Moon in Aries Oracle

The waxing crescent phase is all about being on a mission to manifestation. In this phase we feel a very strong pull towards making our dreams that were imagined during the New Moon phase, a reality. Amazonite assists in manifesting, and carnelian aids creativity.

Supermoon in Aries: I am the Warrior

I am going to keep this super short and sweet by focusing on the moonbeams during this lunation. Essentially, we have been in a cycle of death since the beginning of 2016 as we have been doing alot of purging and releasing in order to make room for the new 2017 energy about to come in. October, and more specifically during this full moon, we are going to be entering into a cycle of rebirth, as 2016 winds down.

Moonbeams:

10 universal month of instant manifestation, aries 1st sign of zodiac= new beginnings

Emotional breakthroughs that take you to a new place, new environment, new terrain

Mercury conjunct sun in libra= greater understanding to analyze and communicate very clearly with others, lots of mind energy, rebalancing of plans in a breakthrough way

Moon powerful T Square to Mars and Pluto in capricorn= invigorates you

26 universal date= 8= balance of heaven and earth- leadership, courage, merging into one

Taking action

Taking a stand- this past year has been all about getting honest with your feelings, now it’s time to act upon those feelings

Standing up for something or someone

Since Aries is the warrior energy, step outside of your comfort zone, conjunct uranus= rebellious, change is inevitable.

Mercury-Pluto square, speak the truth, even when it is risky, share uniqueness with the world, no filter- be prepared, you are really going to see things for as they actually are.

Because this is a super-moon, all of these moonbeams will be super heightened!

Check to see where the moon will be transiting in your natal chart, as this is the area of your life where you will be a warrior, transforming and breaking through!
