Last night I was working on creating and destroying energy in my feminine meditation class. Beyonce’s Lemonade kept entering my mind. Specifically this image: [Read more…]
Today Moonkissd.com features another guest post from astrologer Lindsay Conover. Enjoy!
I woke up the other morning to the saddening news about the passing of David Bowie after an 18 month battle with cancer. Remembering him has brought back many memories of moments in my life of appreciating his creative work. [Read more…]
What’s so fun about Halloween? You get to dress up, and wear an aspect of your personality people may know about – or not! The cool thing about the zodiac is that each sign contains universal archetypes, universal energy patterns available to us all (for instance, Aries, the Warrior), making it really easy and fun to tap your birth chart for costume inspiration.
Want to enhance your natural creativity and give your energy a lift? You could go with your Sun sign, and your urge to shine, be seen and get noticed. What about your private self -that part of you that no one but loved ones ever really sees? For that, dress up your Moon sign. Or to exaggerate the “mask” you already wear in the world, dress for your rising sign. Your Rising Sign is your mask – the visible costume you wear every single day for the world. [Read more…]
Elizabeth Taylor will be remembered. Not just because I play-act, to my husband’s chagrin, my favorite all time movie scene. It’s the scene in the eery movie Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? where a liquored up Martha, mimicking a Bette Davis movie, walks into her messy house, hands on hips, ciggie dangling from her downturned mouth sourly says, What a duhhmp. They just don’t make movies like this anymore, heck, they don’t make actresses like this anymore. When she made this movie a weathered Elizabeth Taylor is nearing forty, and she looks it, goddess bless her. Before botox, there was Elizabeth Taylor. But she was a pioneer in more ways than one, and indeed ‘pioneer’, ‘heroine’ fits like hand in glove. She was passionate about AIDS awareness and spoke out at the beginning, saying, “the silence is deafening”. Inspiring, passionate, pioneering, these are words that belong to a Venus icon – Venus in Aries.
Then there were the husbands. Seven of them. Blessed with sexual enthusiasm and magnetism, Aries-Venus choices can be impulsive. But with the irrepressible enthusiasm of springtime, in love she remains undefeated. Even if knocked down, Aries-Venus can and will pick her self up again and goes right back into the ‘ring’. When asked why she got married so often Taylor replied, “I don’t know, honey. It sure beats the hell out of me.” With her penchant for adventure, excitement, for this Venus sign the deeper work of relationship is sustaining it past first bloom. But eventually those raw emotions in relationship- anger, impatience, passion, rage – will surface, and learning how to effectively allow too-hot-to-handle emotions to coexist within the context of committed partnership is lifelong work for Venus in Aries. Of course, if her partner can’t match her gusto for love and life, even this is a moot point. They must be able to meet love and life with the same bravado, hunger, enthusiasm and love for adventuring that she does. Venus in Aries’ personal ad reads: “I’m a thrill a minute. Puh-lease don’t bore me.”

Is this Venus too hot to handle? Of Taylor, Richard Burton said, “She was unquestionably gorgeous. I can think of no other word to describe a combination of plentitude, frugality, abundance, tightness. She was lavish. She was a dark unyielding largesse. She was, in short, too bloody much.” (Or, too f***** bloody much. Aries compels, no She deserves, a good curse word for dramatic emphasis). Too f***** bloody much. Taylor was a helluva Venus in Aries woman.
RIP Elizabeth Taylor.
(Astrology.com asked me to write about MJ but they never ran with it – so I’m offering it to you, here.)
I never wanted to Beat It, but I did ID with the song PYT, to which I used to dance in my room alone (unless you count the MJ Thriller poster as a dance partner, which I did). I danced as the King of Pop lounged in his white suit on my wall, looking suave, sexy and probably for one of the last times naturally handsome, or close to it.
When I broke the news to my family, my thirteen year old impervious Gemini stepdaughter replied, ‘Who’s Michael Jackson?’ My seventeen year old said she knew who Michael was – a celebrity, right? She never knew Michael the performer, the innovator, the Moon Walker and originator of the single white glove look. [Read more…]
Ellen Page (2/21/87), everyone’s darling, is a Pisces.
And like many other young Piscean celebrities, she refuses to act her age – because she has wisdom way beyond her biological years. It’s a gift of the Fishes. Who can forget Ellen as waif turned disturbingly wrath in Hard Candy? Her tween-y character turned the tables on a man who used the internet to lure teenage girls into his nightmarish domain – boy, did he pick the wrong chick to mess with. And in Juno, her young elfin beauty once again paradoxically highlighted this sagacity.
It’s said that if you look deeply into the eyes of a newborn baby, you can tell if they are an “old soul” or “new soul”. Pisces people just aren’t smart – they’re old soul smart. It’s a subtle knowing, a thought transmission “yes, I’ve seen it all before.” Look into the eyes of a Pisces, young or old, and you can sense their agelessness.
