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.

Muse- 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.

Venus in Gemini brides love sparkle and risque dresses.On their wedding day, their seductive twin likes to come out and play, leaving behind their more demure sophisticated twin. Cue Venus in Gemini lady Jennifer Lopez. Try a gown from Houghton, sparkly and a little revealing.

Venus in Cancer brides look their best in lace and vintage feminine gowns that will represent their delicate nature. Angelina Jolie’s Venus in Cancer gifts her with a graceful elegance. I would suggest a Temperley London gown featuring old lace with a dash of pink.

Libra- Lela Rose

Venus in Libra brides look their best in classic elegant pieces with a touch of pink and sparkle. Being the second air sign of the zodiac, they are drawn to lighter airy fabrics. Think a combination of Hollywood Grace Kelly mixed with Princess Grace, who by the way was a Venus in Libra.

Muse- Grace Kelly

Aries Oracle (2)

Scorpio- Reem Acra 

Being the witchy dark Venuses of the zodiac, Venus in Scorpio ladies look ravishing in touches of black and Gothic elements. Observe any Winona Ryder look whose Venus in Scorpio gives her a black magic aesthetic.

As the bohemian babes of the Zodiac, Aquarius brides need something unique and hippy. Anything that evokes an easy breezy peasant dress with unusual detailing is right up their alley. Vera Wang’s collection was risky and avant-garde, making her collection perfect for Aquarian brides.

Muse- Paris Hilton

Venus in Capricorn (1)

Pisces- Zuhair Murad

These dreamy mystical brides look gorgeous in anything with illusion sleeves or bodices as well as anything that gives off a major mermaid vibe. Touches of tulle, lace, sparkle, and blue will also do.

New Moon in Pisces Solar Eclipse: Once Upon a Dream

Moonbeams: Releasing, letting go, active dreaming

South Node Solar Eclipse- past, known, familiar, where we get stuck, where we want to let go, where you want to change, release, moving away from

Welcome to our New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces! Wow, what a month February has been for us all. By now, you should have a pretty clear quartz crystal image of how you would like your life to look. But the problem with crystal images, is that they can be a little cloudy. To recap, our Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo earlier this month was conjunct the NN of the moon, which was all about understanding what it is that you want in your life, your destiny, your fate. Leo energy is all about passion and courage, so that vision you have for your life is one that involves listening to your heart and doing what you love. Maybe you’re an artist and the lunar eclipse finally made you admit that you want to pursue it more? Whatever it is that was illuminated, our current new moon solar eclipse is going to show you what you need to release and let go of in order to achieve what is that you want, because Pisces is the dissolver. It is important that you pull up a transit chart to see where this eclipse will be happening in your natal chart. This will show you what you need to let go of. For example, this eclipse will be happening in my 9th house, so I need to let go of old ways of thinking, expand my horizons, travel, and change my course of direction, go back to school etc..

Since this is a New Moon eclipse, it will be quite the dark period. New Moons are times of introspection and is actually when we are closest to source, closest to the cosmic womb. Working with your shadow side which has been pronounced leading up to this energy, due to everything being unsettled, is directly linked to where this eclipse is happening in your natacl chart. So for me, since this eclipse is happening in my 9th House, my shadow energy of this time is regretting going down a certain path, paying the price for a career decision, the 9th house is also the gateway, so I could also be dealing with being too restrictive in my thinking and not trusting the divine.  New Moons energy is all about symbols and archetypes. Pay attention to everything that is happening around you. Be on the look-out for serendipitous events, notice numbers, watch the birds, journal your dreams (Pisces) pay attention to what you are gravatating towards.

That same day we also have a conjunction between Mars and Uranus both in Aries, so there is going to be burst of energy to take action and emancipate yourself. The chains of the past will be breaking off. Neptune will also be in Pisces at 11 degrees, signalling an enlightened doorway that will present itself to you. The world is your oyster, but it may not be so clear as to what those possibilities are just yet. The only way to know is to dream. Our stellium in Pisces- with the Sun and Moon, Mercury, Neptune, and Chiron all there, dream big and journal, create a vision board, meditate, work on a creative project. What seems like fantasies and dreams is only your soul speaking to you.

With Mars and Uranus setting fire to the water, there is a need for you to just sit back and watch what happens. Eclipses are known to bring dramatic changes up to 6 months, indicating divine timing.

The dream is real.

Pisces the Mystic Mermaid

Welcome to the psychic watery realm of Pisces. This energy is very hard to define, and it almost makes no sense to project on it or label it. Pisces is equivalent to the iridescence of fish scales, reflecting rainbow lights up to cosmos. The altruistic healing qualities of this energy runs the risk of self sacrifice and self sabotage, she becomes the shoreline that the waves of emotions crash onto, rather than being the boat that flows with the ebbs and flows. High tide can be equivalent to higher consciousness, but the low tides are needed for grounding and releasing. In order to awaken to the soul of Pisces, being connected to both earth and the astral plane at the same time is the proper expression of Pisces, and not losing herself into the abyss of emotions, but rather discerning all of the information coming to her, hence the upward and downward fish as seen in its glyph. Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac which contains a culmination of other previous signs, making them closer to source. Her task it to be the channel for spiritual information and not the filter for it. Your job is not to build sand castles on the dry beach only to have the waves come by and knock them down. It’s about co-creating your own castle using the earthy groundedness of reality and the dream like waters of the divine. Pisces souls have incarnated to make their dreams a reality, to live a creative life.

Deception can run rampant with this energy, so listening to your intuition is imperative. With all of these psychic gifts, the trove of Pisces can only hold so many treasures. Sometimes it is necessary to retreat into your cavern where true inspiration lies, and when the time is right, to come out of the cavern with the treasures to share with the world, with the collective consciousness through art. Pisces time can see the most creative projects blossom as if they were divinely inspired. Creativity is the essence of the Pisces soul, as she is the divine child- children being innocence, that wonder and awe of being only a miniscule drop in the ocean. Know that when the siren song calls, the divine is calling, and one must heed the call of the divine, or else drown into the watery subconscious dream world.

Mars in Pisces: December 19, 2016- January 28, 2017

Mars has moved into the sign of Pisces until January 28, 2017. Now is the time to use your creativity for inspired action. If you have been meaning to write that book, do it! If you want to start a blog, do it! If you want to volunteer your time for a charitable cause, do it!
It’s also important to think outside of the box when you are faced with a challenge. Creativity is often times our saviour in times of crisis.

Mars in Pisces reminds me of Dory from Finding Nemo. She was on a mission to help Marlon find his son Nemo, even though she got confused along the way. Don’t let the dreamy nature of Pisces blur your vision. If you find yourself getting foggy, find a creative outlet. You might create some of your best work yet!

Use your imagination to help navigate yourself during this next month and a bit. If you feel inspired to do something, don’t hesitate, act!

Moonbeaming: Shadow Self in Full Force

My goodness, what a challenging New Moon in Libra this has been thus far. Right at 8:11am Eastern time this morning, the New Moon reached its full capacity and wreaked its havoc on me.

This New Moon is associated with the goddess Lilith, which is all about our shadow sides. My Lilith is in Pisces, which is about hypersensitivity and the inability to say NO. At school today, I was pulled into some drama that did not concern me, as 2 cliques whom I both speak with are turning against each other and am trying to force me to choose sides, although none of them are my friends.

Being an empath is not helping the situation as both sides of this situation are full of emotional vampires. My Lilith makes it challenging for me to put my own needs first, because I like to harmony and peace.

I am starting to wear Black Tourmaline which has helped to eliminate all the negative energy in my auric field…..I already feel a lot better.

My Lilith is also in the 10th house, which means I will encounter these emotional vampires in public settings such as school.

Look to see where your Lilith is in your natal chart and its sign…..no doubt you will be working with this goddess quite a lot during this next month.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces Tarot Spread

Hi all, I thought I would share a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Tarot spread that I have come up with. The spread itself, is a pretty standard Full Moon spread, however, I have tweaked a couple of questions, and have added my own questions as well. This spread uses 9 cards, which I feel is super appropriate since we are in a triple 9 vibration all month long.

I can’t wait to try this out tomorrow during our Eclipse, and I hope you all enjoy it as well!

There is also another fun Tarot reading that you can do during this Eclipse, which involves finding The Moon card in your deck, and seeing which card is behind it. The card behind The Moon is what is presently being eclipsed in your life, or what your shadow is at this point. I would recommend using The Moon as opposed to The High Priestess, since The Moon card is associated with Pisces, which makes sense since this lunation is happening in the sign of Pisces!

Enjoy, and many Eclipse blessings to you all!
