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.

New Moon in Taurus April 26, 2017: Let Them Eat Cake!

Moonbeams- nurture yourself, presence, mindfulness

New Moons in Taurus are always about taking time for yourself to indulge, by practicing mindfulness through being present in each and every moment. Venus the ruler of Taurus will still be in its shadow phase during this time conjunct Chiron in Pisces a 29 degrees signifying the cusp of great change with regards to self worth before moving back into Aries. Seeing as there is strong Neptunian energy during this NM, there is a certain mystical threshold that is being crossed, synchronicity’s, dreams, divination, déjà vu will all be very heightened. Saturn still at the galactic centre is representing a major shift in the space time continuum where the future, present, and past are colliding, creating out of body experiences for us. We don’t have any control over this, but what we do have is the fixed earth energy of Taurus which is teaching us a major lesson of being present and rooted in our nature. Coming back into our bodies is in itself a spiritual practice because our 5 senses allow us to stay connected to our earthy sensuous being, creating a fertile ground for new roots to take hold. The polarity of Taurus is Scorpio which is forcing us to let go of co-dependency- depending on spirit to bring us the answers we need. Everything we need to know is within ourselves. Self reliance is Taurean energy in its rawest form. If we are not grounded, it doesn’t matter how much information is being downloaded. We have a choice during this New Moon of whether we are going to embrace the lessons of Taurus’ ruler Venus from its retrograde cycle of loving ourselves by honouring our needs by listening to our inner voice (Taurus-throat), or are we going to get lost in the Piscean current? As Marie Antoinette (archetype of self indulgence)- who had her Venus in Scorpio said- “let them eat cake”, a.k.a, let us get real with ourselves by understanding that we have all the information we need going forward, so let’s make the most of it!

Tips

Set intentions around trusting your voice

Taurus- Soul Indulgence

Ruler- Venus

House- 2nd

Fixed, Passive, Earth

Cosmic energy moves from the external conquering of goals of Aries to the internal self sufficiency of Taurus. The inherent need for Taurus to possess and stabilize creates a false sense of security, whereby the real security lies in having a strong sense of self, where strong values and a dedication to create something bigger than themselves becomes the soul’s motivation. The Taurus-Scorpio polarity is one of letting go of material possessions in order to foster a deep sense of self and selflessness, the ability to give without the expectation of receiving. Here we see the conflict of I desire vs. I need. Letting go of material attachments during this time forces one to go inwards to develop a value system that is based on grounding spirit into reality, thus understanding what the soul most needs. The way this can be done is through understanding that we are all divine and are in possession of profound spiritual information in our hearts (Venus).
