December Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

On the 2nd of the month Jupiter moves into Capricorn where it will remain for the next year. During its time in Capricorn something will get shaken up or changed at work. This change pushes you into a new role, position, or simply gives more responsibility at work or in school. This role may feel like a lot of pressure at first, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. You should try to watch what comes out of your mouth after Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th. Just because something is true doesn’t mean that it needs to be said. An old friend or colleague will pop back into your life with an opportunity around the Gemini Full Moon on the 12th; don’t think, just act. If you do gig or freelance work you can expect an influx of money after Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th. Opportunities may just fall into your lap! The next eclipse season starts off with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon on the 26th. This will likely pertain to the change at work or school I mentioned before, if so you’ll be pushed to get real about your long term goals. Mercury goes into Capricorn on the 29th which will urge you to speak upon those new goals you may have.

Taurus

With big, beautiful Jupiter beginning its yearlong transit through Capricorn on the 2nd, you’ll experience this next year like a rollercoaster racing down the hill. Expect to feel momentum at school and/or at work. Then, after Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th, you’ll feel an uncomfortable shift but it will lead to eye opening conversations around your current limitations. Expect and be open to something lucky happening during the Gemini Full Moon on the 12th, look to your Gemini ruled house to get more personal information here. An event outside of your control causes you to work with new people or with new technology after the 20th when Venus moves into Aquarius. Eclipse season begins with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon, all of this taking place on the 26th. You’ll have to lean into the changes that take place at this time because there are going to be some big moves happening career wise. Change is both good and necessary right now. Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 29th, you can use this earth energy for constructive conversation in pursuit of your goals.

Gemini

The first planetary shift in December is a big one with Jupiter moving into Capricorn on the 2nd. You’ll likely feel the pull to release side projects or hobbies in order to focus on your main ambitions during this next year. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and sometime after that you’ll be faced with a decision to make around either how you teach others, or how you seek out teachers. The final Full Moon of the year is a Gemini Full Moon on the 12th and under this moon you’ll get clarity around an old, unhealthy internal belief. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th and things will pick up quickly under this transit if you work online or are in business with friends. Intellectual pursuits prompt an increase in your bank account. The new eclipse season beings with a solar eclipse, taking place on the New Moon in Capricorn on the 26th. This season will be about letting go of and releasing things in order to get clear on your ambitions. We end the month with Mercury now moving into Capricorn on the 29th which naturally tones down the volume of your inner chatter to make space for more critical thinking habits.

Cancer

Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, begins its yearlong transit through Capricorn, your polar sign, on the 2nd. When Jupiter reaches the degree of your sun (or moon or rising if that’s where your Cancer placement is) you’ll have to finally make the final choice on a big decision regarding your career path. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and during its time there you’ll experience a change or release in regards to your beliefs. Next, the moon is full in Gemini on the 12th. Under this moon you’ll run into someone and have a conversation that leads to a breakthrough; it could be an old friend or a complete stranger. Chiron stations direct on the 12th, which causes a situation to arise that tests your perseverance. With Venus moving into Aquarius on the 20th you’ll find that you’re better able to separate your emotions from your work. Expect to get a lot done in those weeks that Venus is in the forward thinking air sign. Eclipse season starts on the 26th with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon. A decision around what you’re currently building or working towards must be made. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more information. Lastly, on the 29th Mercury moves into Capricorn and it’s likely that someone may be using information against you… but that person may be you!

Leo

On the 2nd of the month Jupiter moves into Capricorn for its yearlong transit. This year will force you to look at your goals more soberly and release the unattainable. This doesn’t mean you need to give up on your dreams; you just need to get serious about them. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and a mentor or educator may come into your life and quickly lead you down the rabbit hole. Trust this process and the path it will take you on. The Full Moon in Gemini is on the 12th and it presents you with an opportunity to look at something in the past in a completely new light. Look to your Gemini ruled house for more information about how this personally affects you. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20thand will stay there for a few weeks. While it’s in your polar sign you’ll need to make a decision about a contract, whatever you choose is what was meant to be. The new eclipse season beings on the 26th with a solar eclipse and a Capricorn New Moon. You’ll have to let go of what you thought you wanted in order to lean fully into your actual dream career. When Mercury moves into factual Capricorn on the 29th you’ll experience a contraction and your opinions may be more fixed than usual.

Virgo

This next year is sure to be full of opportunity and expansion for you with the help of Jupiter in Capricorn, which begins its transit on the 2nd of December. Your ambition is emphasized while Jupiter is moving through this career driven sign. After Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th an event will pull you into the role of a teacher. If you already are a teacher, this transit challenges you to expand your methods. The Gemini Full Moon is on the 12th and things will not go as planned, so don’t hold yourself too tightly to your to do list, try to go with the flow (you can do it, I believe in you!) On the 20th Venus will move into community focused Aquarius. Under this transit you may have to use new technology at work or in your business, release control of this situation and simply lean in to change. Eclipse season is already here again, and it’s starting off with a solar eclipse on the December 26th New Moon in Capricorn. This could manifest as an expansion of your responsibilities in both life and work. It may be stressful but it is necessary. With Mercury moving into Capricorn on the 29th your specific set of knowledge and information can be used as a tool to gain power and prestige. Utilize it for good over the coming weeks.

Libra

Jupiter begins its year-long transit through Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. Expect some events to occur which prompt you to be much more serious about your savings account than you have been in recent years. After the 9th, when Mercury moves into Sagittarius, your powers of charm are emphasized. So, under this transit, conversations bring you lucky opportunities. Something will come to a rapid conclusion on the 12th with the Gemini Full Moon. Remind yourself of what was taking place on the Gemini New Moon 6 months ago. Venus, the planet of love and money goes into Aquarius on the 20th. This is a very good omen for increased income for any air sign, but it will be especially profitable if you work online, with friends, or for a nonprofit or socially conscious company. Get ready for a new eclipse season starting on the 26th when we experience the solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon. A seemingly insignificant event forces you to completely re-examine your career path, setting the tone for the rest of the season under this New Moon. Be wary of those who have important information about you after Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 29th, this information could be used against you. How will you react?

Scorpio

This next year is littered with opportunities with Jupiter moving into Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. If you’ve wanted to expand your work or business in a big way, this is the year to do it. Leading up the 9th, when Mercury moves into Sagittarius, you may begin to feel a bit lost (as you do from time to time.) Don’t be afraid of talking about how you feel because this transit supports conversations about where your path is leading. By the time the 12th rolls around, and the moon is full in Gemini, you’ll get some release from some of your deeper emotions. You’ll be able to let go of something that you no longer need to carry around. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th and during its time in the celestial sir sign you’ll be pushed out of a contract. This seems rough right off the bat, but you’ll come to realize that there was something else meant for you. Eclipse season beings on the 26th! We’re starting it off with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon. Keep yourself open to new opportunities on this day; remember that sometimes you have to create the perfect opportunity. Mercury begins its transit through Capricorn on the 29th and this is a good negotiations vibe. If you’re in talks with a company, brand, or person during this transit, things will be looking good for you!

Sagittarius

You’re probably pretty used to things falling in your favor with lucky Sagittarius playing an important role in your chart, but your ruling planet is moving into Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. This, however, doesn’t eradicate your luck it just changes its shape. Expect a lot of right place right time moments in this next year. Next, Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and during this transit your powers of persuasion are at an all time high. This is especially good for any of you that teach in some capacity. A decision must be made on the 12th with the Gemini Full Moon. Let that old goal or project go, it’s only diverting your energy. Venus moving into Aquarius on the 20th is good for your wallet. It’s a good idea to use your money to invest in a long term goal while Venus is in Aquarius. Something miraculous is liable to occur on the 26th; this is the start of a new eclipse season. The solar eclipse takes place on the Capricorn New Moon, so look to your Capricorn ruled house for clues as to how this will affect you directly. Lastly, Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 29th. This transit provides you with the skills to be able to negotiate what you want and need at work.

Capricorn

It’s going to be a beautiful year for us goats with Jupiter moving into Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. We’re a naturally melancholic bunch, but under this transit our lives expand out in all directions. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9thand at some point in the 20 days of this transit a speech (read: tirade) falls on the right ears. This presents a new opportunity to you, look to your Sagittarius ruled house for more information. Expect a big shifting energy with the Gemini Full Moon on the 12th, the last Full Moon of the year. An intellectual pursuit or project may shift into something completely different under that moon. Chiron stations direct on the same day, and through this past transit you’ve gotten to a place of deep self understanding; you’re ready to climb the mountain at 2x speed. With Venus moving into Aquarius on the 20th it’s finally time to upgrade some technology in your life, a new phone, laptop, program, whatever. The new eclipse season begins with a solar eclipse on the December 26th New Moon in Capricorn. This is a call to properly align your feelings with your current goals. Getting into your deep emotions surrounding a goal helps to program your subconscious and later see those goals come to fruition. Mercury moves into Capricorn as well on the 29th which enhances your ability to articulate yourself. Your honesty is needed under this transit.

Aquarius

With Jupiter beginning its yearlong transit through Capricorn on the 2nd, your own Saturnian energy is coaxed out into the forefront. This manifests as a year of lucky opportunities in regards to goals and hard work. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more information about how this will affect you personally. People listen to you with keen ears after Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th. Your passion inspires passion in others. The Gemini fFull Moon on the 12th is a catalyst for finally releasing a negative influence in your life. Just sit back and allow things to pull you away from this person, habit, or thought pattern. Venus moves into your sign, Aquarius, on the 20th. This transit makes you more affable and affluent so long as you stick to your authenticity and let it guide you. There is a solar eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn on the 26th; this is the beginning of a new eclipse season. A new career opportunity falls into your lap, but this opportunity pulls your focus in a new direction. That’s ok, it’s meant to be. After Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 29th, you can expect an opportunity to lead to a constructive rebuilding of something that was broken.

Pisces

Jupiter begins its transit through Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. This is a lucky year in regards to both stumbling upon and creating opportunities around your long term life goals. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more insight into how this will play out in your own life. Mercury will be in Sagittarius from the 9th through the 28th of December and at some point during its time there you’ll be pushed to attend an event with people you don’t know. A revived sense of inspiration waits for you there. The final Full Moon of the year is a Gemini Full Moon on the 12th. On that day a door will close on an old and no longer needed friendship. Allow it to come to an end. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th and this is a good time for gig work and projects with friends. I suggest you avoid signing any contracts during this transit though. The first solar eclipse of the new eclipse season is on the 26th, which falls under the New Moon in Capricorn. This powerful moon offers an opportunity to take a sober look at your current money goals and amend them to better fit your ability. It’ll be a necessary dose of realism. You’ll have an opportunity to talk about these new goals or negotiate for them once Mercury also moves into Capricorn on the 29th. During this transit communication leads to money making opportunities.

May Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

Your usual go go go attitude is going to be faced with a couple road blocks this month, and by “road blocks” I mean naps. You know what it feels like to run against some really strong winds? Yeah that’s you at the start of May. But hey, maybe it’s just the universe telling you to sit the down and put your money where your mouth is. Venus enters Taurus on the 15th; this is a good time to practice saving your money for the right moment. You’re being called to release your fears around money and success at the end of the month with that Scorpio full moon, but what does that mean for you? It’s going to require extra effort on your part to figure out what needs to be released, it won’t come naturally. It’s also ok if you are still confused by this on the 18th when Luna is nice and full, just be present and forgiving. The first 3 and the final 3 days of the month will be lucky for you, so you’ll have those highs to carry you.

Taurus

May is your time to shine Taurus! The moon will be in Taurus on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th bringing with it a new rejuvenated energy… one you can use to do all the things you love the most: control the situation, complain about being in charge, eat take out, crush your goals despite being thought of as lazy, take a nap after hitting said goal, etc. By the 15th of the month the Sun, Mercury, and Venus will all be in Taurus. So utilize this time to focus on being your high vibe self. High vibe Taurus knows what they want and also exactly how to get it. The full moon on the 18th is all about releasing that which no longer serves you and it’s in your opposing sign of Scorpio, so release an obsessive thought surrounding your money. The 31st will be a lucky money magick day for you.

Gemini

You are being called to slow down in the first two weeks of May. Be thoughtful with the words you use and the way you spend your money, which is easier said than done. Be on the look out for career opportunities on the 6th and 7th. This time of slowing down should be used to put some thought into your bigger plans and goals. Whether they be business plans or that big summer camping trip you’re going on, your plans need your undivided attention… well, as undivided as you can manage. By mid month you’re going to feel frustrated and a little confined; it’s ok to cry about it. With Mars moving into Cancer around the same time as the Scorpio Full Moon it’s a good idea for you to spend time connecting with water; take a bath, walk alongside a river, catch moon water, scry into a glass of La Croix. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in Gemini, giving you a much needed boost of energy to sail into the tail end of Spring.

Cancer

Taurus season is second only to your own sun sign season, my little cutie crabs. The New Moon on the 4th is a good time for you to call in new ways of deepening your foundations. Think about your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual security at this time. The 8th, 9th, and 10th are days of action for you, so don’t be afraid to go after what you need to in order to find that aforementioned security. Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th making your usual modes of passion particularly magnetic. Let your emotions drive you to new heights. Recognize that having feelings is your super power! Release the negative stories you have about money on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th. I know that Cancer horoscopes always talk about crying, but this water moon is a great time to cry in the fetal position, dance in a creek a midnight, or scream into a cup of tea. Emotions can be released in many ways, and if anyone understands that it’s you, Cancer.

Leo

I’m not gonna lie my little lion cubs, this is going to be rough month for you. I tell you this so that you can mentally prepare and handle it like the bad ass that you are. That Taurus New Moon wants you to relax and allow space for more structure in your life, but structure can hold you back from expanding to your fullest potential, right?!? How can you balance your need to be open to all possibilities with the grounded structure of Taurus? That’s the work this month. On the 15th Venus moves into Taurus and you may find that you want to blow your mid month pay check on an over priced bikini or some other luxury item. Instead you should save that paper for something even better, something worth waiting for (did someone say Vegas pool party?) The Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th is asking you to go deep and release an unhelpful narrative around money. Going deep isn’t your favorite thing, but it is necessary. By the 21st you’ll be feeling more expansive and curious with the sun and mercury in Gemini.

Virgo

With lots of Earth and Water in the air this month you’ll be feeling super charged and ready to tackle that lengthy list of to do’s, Virgo. Use the Taurus New Moon on the 4th to create a wealth intention. How do you want to grow? What do you want to add into your life? Dream big because this is a moon phase that particularly speaks to you and your ability to create perfection on this earthly plane. In the final days of Venus in Aries you’ll be riding a powerful wave of luck that will culminate on the 15th. Luck is wasted if not utilized though. Venus in Taurus will help you distinguish when you need to save and when to invest in yourself. Mars might be in fall in Cancer but it’s a placement you understand. The latter end of the month is the perfect time for you to focus on how you heal your friends/ family/ community/ the world. Use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to scale back your work load. The idea is to work smarter not harder.

Libra

Taurus might share your planetary ruler but there are more than a few misunderstandings between the signs, and so misunderstandings are going to follow you this month. But by the 21st your communication skills will flow with ease and grace as per usual; you’ll need to account for some extra necessary tact for the first 20 days of the month. Frustrations in work and business will likely make you more emotional than usual by the time Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th, but the moon will also be in Libra on that day, so a beautiful opportunity may come if you allow your emotions to flow freely. Full moons are always about releasing that which no longer serves us, so use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to release a negative mindset around your career. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury move into fellow air sign, Gemini. It is then that you are being called to integrate the lessons of the first 3 weeks of this month.

Scorpio

Ah, Taurus season, a time when you’re more inclined to spend your money on your favorite guilty pleasures. Scorpio, you probably understand money better than anyone in the zodiac, don’t forget that this month! Use your opposing sign to learn how to better invest in yourself, particularly on and after the 15th when Venus enters Taurus. Your ability to understand people is heightened when Mars enters Cancer on the 16th, so use that knowledge to your best benefit. In fact the 15th through the 18th is a super charged time for you, so if you have any big plans or deals on your to do list, I’d suggest working on them in that time frame. I don’t need to tell you what to release on the Full Moon on the 18th, you will already know. Set an intention and be specific. Handle any important conversations before the 21st or else you may find yourself entangled in more than one lie.

Sagittarius

There is a serious slowing down that’s happening this month and that might be a lot to ask of you. Taurus might be an archetype that feels very distant and confusing for you, but try to use it to focus on the details of your life. You’re a big picture person, but you’re being called to focus on the small day to day stuff, especially when it comes to money and structure. Practice making to do lists and finding joy in checking things off. You might not be sure what to release on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th but if you can spend sometime alone taking a nice long bath or relaxing shower it might reveal itself to you. And even if it doesn’t, be proud of yourself for taking some alone time; you can tell everyone about it when Mercury goes into Gemini on the 21st. An important conversation will take place at the end of the month with someone younger than you, so take note.

Capricorn

Call in all the money and success this month, Earth Babies! You love a long goal, so set a big one on the 4th when the moon is new in Taurus. Venus moves into fellow Earth sign, Taurus, on the 15th. You’re usually the type to save rather than spend but the gift of Venus in Taurus is the realization that you need to invest some of that hard earned money into yourself to make true progress. Mars enters Cancer on the 16th and it’s asking you to nurture your existing projects. Give some much needed heart and soul to your goals and watch them flourish. You love Scorpios and feel very comfortable within the darkness of a Scorpio moon, so on the 18th make sure to set an intention around releasing things that no longer serve you in your career. This is a powerful manifestation energy so be very specific and intentional. Be on the look out for interesting new opportunities on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of the month.

Aquarius

With all of the earth and water signs taking over the sky this month, your usually articulate and matter of fact way of dealing with things is not going to work in your favor. You might not be the most emotive sign but you are deeply empathetic, so fall on those laurels this month. The Taurus New Moon on the 4th is a good time to look at the structures in your life. If you run a business this is the time to call in growth. If you want to start a side hustle, now is the time to put plans into action. With Mars going into Cancer on the 16th you’ll want to focus on how to water your garden. Slow down and take care of all of your passion projects and dreams. On the 18th when the moon is full in Scorpio you’ll want to look into how you spend your money, a hard choice may have to be made, but you can do it my little space babes. You are in charge of your abundance! By the 21st the Sun and Mercury will be in Gemini and this will have a number of new and exciting opportunities fall into your lap so long as you are showing up and doing the work.

Pisces

The New Moon in Taurus on the 4th is probably going to make you want to sleep as opposed to call anything new into your life. I dare you to indulge in your 5 senses at this time and allow this exploration to open new pathways to growth in your life and business. When the planet of love and money also goes into Taurus on the 15th you’ll know exactly what to do: make an investment or create an action plan in regards to your money. You might not be where you want to be financially, but this Venus phase is going to help you bring roots to your goals. With Mars going into Cancer right before the Scorpio Full Moon on the 28th, you’ll be feeling comfortable and ready to use your natural powers of empathy, healing, and artistic ability to your best benefit. Use the moon phase to dive deep into the negative mindset you may have around money. Money isn’t evil, can you believe that? Be on the look out for something special to come your way on the 26th, 27th, or 28th.

April Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

That Aries New Moon on the 5th is your Divine call to action! This day is a harmonious day for you to start any new endeavor and since it’s in your natal sun sign you’ll be feeling super charged all day; do that bold thing you had been putting off. You’ll be feeling a natural call to tighten your finances around the 10th. Make a budget, check your account statements, it’s always a good idea to be mindful when it comes to wealth. On the 17th you’re usual direct way of speaking is enhanced, so if you have any important meetings or calls to make do so on or after the 17th when Mercury will be in Aries. The second of two Libra full moons will be on the 19th, this is your final call to release the things, thoughts, and people that do not add harmony to your life. Reevaluate the people you partner with. At the end of the month one voice in your head will be telling you to buy a big ticket item. Another voice will be telling you to use your money responsibly. Try to hear both voices out.

Taurus

That gym membership you’ve been thinking about getting is looking real nice around the New Moon on the 5th but by the 10th you may be regretting the purchase. If you’re worried about money look at your bank statement. Are you eating out too much? If you can’t put it on the company card then you should probably scale back and save some money. Mercury will be in Aries from the 17th until May, your opinions hit more bluntly than usual for the latter half of the month and by the 19th you might be looking down the barrel of a break up. Maybe it’s the termination of a project you’ve been working on, or ending a business partnership, or maybe you will have to fire someone or end a relationship with a client. The Pluto and Saturn retrogrades at the end of the month, starting with Pluto on the 24th, will help you handle this situation with grace. Pluto will help you rebuild and Saturn gives a much needed reality check.

Gemini

Your already rampant mind is full of new ideas on the 5th. Remember, a million dollar idea is only worth it if you match your passion with the appropriate actions. That Jupiter retrograde on the 10th is going to hit you hard, either in a good or bad way. Something that isn’t working for you will be taken away from you during this transit, whether you wallow or pick yourself back up off the ground and keep going is up to you. Whatever Jupiter takes away is only happening to make room for something else. Your natural charm is upleveled after Mercury goes into Aries on the 17th. You’ve always known how to use your gift for gab to your advantage, if you need help just ask. Clean up your work space on the 19th, especially if you’re feeling stuck or bored with the work you do. That money you’ve been saving for a summer adventure? On the 20th you’ll want to start looking at booking the campsite or buying the 8 person floatie.

Cancer 

There’s a real duality to the beginning of the month for you Crabs. On one hand, Spring time in full bloom (for those us us in the Northern Hemisphere) has you feeling some type of way, and yet as soon as you go outside you may be feeling like turning around and going right back in. Be gentle with your fluctuating needs. The 10th brings a loss, probably your keys or that $10 bill you had in your jacket pocket for weeks. An argument on the 17th will linger (as they usually do) up to the the 2nd Libra full moon on the 19th. This is a good time to let go of the hurt and allow yourself to actually forgive and forget this time. Once Taurus season hits the next day you’ll be feeling much more like yourself, maybe too much so. Be wary of any purchases you make on the 20th because you’ll probably want to return them. The Pluto and Saturn retrogrades at the end of the month are going to be a call to action for you Cancer. You’ll be like a hermit crab looking for a new, better home. Don’t forget that your first home is yourself.

Leo

That New Moon energy has you feeling like making new business cards and leaving them in every cool coffee shop around town. A natural leader and performer, you’ll do yourself well to make bold choices around the 5th. There’s room for everyone to shine in this world but nobody really shines brighter than a Leo, keep this in mind as Jupiter goes retrograde in the 10th. A new job, gig, opportunity, or client will back out or be taken out of your grasp but that’s ok, you didn’t need it! Trust me! Speak your truth on the 17, you’ll find that there was something you’ve been holding back and you simply can’t keep it close to your chest anymore. Let the Lion(ness) roar! Happy hour drinks or any other sort of social gathering close to the second Libra full moon on the 19th can bring you luck in business partnerships. Wanna collab with that dope witch you’ve been following on insta for a few months? Message them sometime between the 17th and the 20th for extra good luck. The end of the month may bring up some big questions but all in all it’s a very good time to be a Leo.

Virgo

You have a lot of restless energy at the start of the month. Some aspect of your job or work life is feeling way too confusing for you, it’s making your well ordered brain itch. Just allow this situation to be, if you try to fix it you’ll only make it worse, especially since things will com to a head on their own around the 10th. You’re great at saving, right? You may have a reason to dip into those savings at this time but, fear not, this is exactly why people save their money. Your communication style is going to hit someone in the wrong way around the 17th or at some point in the month thereafter. Be conscious of the fact that not everyone is down for constructive criticism… at least make sure you’re actually being constructive. There is a big release needed from you at the end of the month starting around the 19th and after a somewhat tumultuous fist few weeks you’re actually going to be so ready for the shifts and changes you’re being asked to make. If there’s one thing Virgo can do it is rebuild (and come back better than every baby).

Libra

The power has shifted for you on the 5th and you won’t be complaining at all, if more people lived life the way you do the world would be a more beautiful place. Use your magnanimous charm for good, the people are listening. There will be a loss at work or in your career around the 10th when Jupiter stations to go retrograde but this is going to be a loss that you’ve been secretly waiting for, or it’s a loss you won’t know that you needed until it’s gone, either way it won’t hurt. An inner boss bitch voice may come out a few times this month but it’s ok to be tough sometimes, your voice needs to be heard. That second Full Moon in your natal sun sign is going to give you a power surge, but it’s up to you how you’ll use the energy. Trust yourself. Think before you spend near the end of the month (and into May as well) or else you’ll wake up from a day dream and be surrounded by a myriad of pretty new things, which isn’t the worst way to to wake up from a dream, but it sure as hell isn’t a smart money move.

Scorpio 

Your sense of self is going to come into question in the beginning of the month. Don’t act on this confusing energy, just let it sit. A loss around the 10th is going to hurt your bank account, so it’s time to get serious about your budget, organize your money habits. Relations at work are strained for you around the Full Moon on the 19th. You’ll find yourself saying things that you wish you’d kept close to your chest, simply because people are going to misconstrue what you’re trying to convey. You might want to work from home if you can to avoid making Susan in finance cry at her desk on accident. Things relax shortly after the Full Moon as the Sun enters your opposing sign Taurus. There’s a real “do what you need to do” vibe for you natal Scorpios at the end of the month. It’s not a “treat yo self” vibe, more like an adult version. Do the stuff that needs to be done, Scorpios are no stranger to this concept!

Sagittarius

Your heart is going to know exactly what it wants on the 5th, but it’s likely to change its mind by the time your ruling planet of Jupiter stations to go retrograde for a few months on the 10th. This is a big leveling up for you natal Sagittarians when it comes to how you make money, but leveling up requires reflection, intention, and action-in that order! With Mercury going into Aries on the 17th you’ll find that you’ll be able to articulate yourself with more grace than usual. This is a time for speaking from the heart. An effortless release happens around the 19th and it creates space for you to travel. Perhaps it’s the release of an obligation or a relationship that was holding you back from beginning a new adventure. Lots of good shifts are coming your way! Taurus season begins on the 10th, and it may be a time of year when you find yourself nervously shaking your leg, biting the backs of your pens, and tapping incessantly on the table, but you’re going to be invited to lead in a big way around that time. Be wary, sometimes getting what we want is actually a tough lesson in disguise.

Capricorn 

There’s tension for you around the 5th, but then again, does Capricorn not thrive in tension? Use this energy to kick start you on to a new project, be it getting back into running/the gym, starting to write that book you’ve been planning relentlessly, or even cancelling your Netflix subscription so you can be more productive this spring. Mercury in Aries isn’t your favorite aspect to live through, but once again, you’re a tough a** goat! You might come off the wrong way at work and with friends but having others fear you isn’t always a bad thing is it? In fact, there is a relationship that may end this month. Remember, every person we have in our life is a relationship, so this isn’t necessarily romantic but it is a necessary release (even if it doesn’t feel so good). On the 20th the sun will enter your sibling sing of Taurus and this energy is calling for you to tighten your grip on your money. Some call it stingy but you know that nothing is guaranteed and money talks.

Aquarius

You’ll meet someone new at the beginning of the month. This person is going to inspire you with the way they live their life. Allow them to be the teacher for once. When Jupiter stations to go retrograde on the 10th you’ll find that the usual uncomfortable groans or avoided eye contact that strangers and friends alike give when you’re on your 3rd diatribe about the inequalities and injustices in our modern society suddenly have turned into an interested audience. People will be willing to listen to you because you speak from the heart. Sure, you’re smart as hell too, but you’ll need to keep checking back in with yourself starting on the 17th to make sure that the words you speak are your own; that’s what people want to hear. In fact, if being paid to publicly speak (or to write) is something you’ve been toying with, the stars are aligning this month to make it so. The world needs your voice, and boy do you have quite a few things you’ve been wanting to say.

Pisces

Sometimes taking a good hard look at ourselves is the scariest thing we can do, but the Universe is calling you to do so at the beginning of the month. What do you need specifically? What does success look like to you? What does freedom look like to you? How are you showing up for yourself and your dreams? A loss around the middle of the month is a necessary one. You’ll receive a message on the 10th about what this “loss” will be all about. You’ll feel the shift on the 17th when Mercury enters Aries, this might end the retrograde shadow but it won’t be a hallelujah sigh of relief for you, Pisces. You’ll be feeling the energy of everyone you encounter, so work from home if you can, spend time alone especially near water. Around the full moon on the 19th you’ll face a difficult conversation with a loved one, but fear not, difficult conversations can lead to stronger bonds shared if the language used is nonvoilent. You can both come out winners. Make sure your spendings are in line with your highest good at the end of the month.

January Money ‘Scopes

Aries
January serves as your professional wake up call, as the Sun and Saturn align in the career sector of your chart on January 2nd, implementing a new dream around work. Money matters seem to resolve smoothly on the 3rd and 4th, due to a Grand Water Trine between Venus, the North Node of Destiny, and the asteroid Chiron which will all serve to heal recent financial missteps. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to push your professional life in high gear, however, you may fall victim to personal setbacks, as Neptune is activating your innermost fears to hold you back from achieving your goals. Don’t let your insecurities get in the way of your success on January 8th. You’ve worked hard enough and deserve to prosper this month. January 20th brings inspiration and hope your way, through the support of your colleagues. Also, watch out for news regarding promotion or raise during the lunar eclipse occurring January 21st.

Taurus
With your planetary ruler, Venus, aspecting the house of debt in your chart on January 7th, you will have the next month to figure out your finances. Starting off the new year with a fresh perspective on money will allow your bank account to sore throughout 2019. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to teach you lessons around your spend fast tendencies, pushing you to be more thrifty than you care to be, luxurious Taurus. January 20th elevates your professional status, which leads you to rethink the direction of your career under the lunar eclipse January 21st. January 31st helps you use your connections to your advantage in strategizing your next professional steps—use your contacts wisely!

Gemini
January is a catalyst for you to rethink your financial investments, or, who you invest time in. You kick off 2019 feeling more confused than ever regarding the state of your career. The solar eclipse January 5th pushes you to ask for a raise at work, as you have been putting in massive amounts of overtime. However, you may not receive the payment you had wished for, causing you to second guess your career (especially when your planetary ruler, Mercury, enters the house of joint finances). With the Sun, Saturn, and Mercury lighting up your house of OPM (other peoples money), you feel stuck in more financial limbo during the solar eclipse as bills pile up and your raise is minimal. To further your frustrations, Jupiter and Neptune square off January 13th, which will impact your career, making you rethink your purpose on the 31st. Although circumstances may feel bleak this month, try to persevere through the storm, as February brings a lighter energy your way.

Cancer
A new business partnership is headed your way January 2nd, leading you into the solar eclipse January 5th feeling strong and perilous. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings a financial payback your way, allowing you to sit back and relax. However, the last days of January serve as your financial wake up call to start saving your pennies and stop spending frivolously. A get rich quick scheme or a financial idea from your new partner could leave you feeling like a crab in hot water on January 31st, if you don’t question the circumstances of the investment and do your due diligence in investigating the project.

Leo
The solar eclipse January 5th brings up issues and resentments you’ve had with colleagues. However, you have the opportunity to press the reset button and start anew under the solar eclipse, allowing you to make amends with your coworkers as you move into the new year. January 13th brings a creative opportunity your way. The project may not yield a high salary, but, will give you a chance to put your artistic juices to work. The flip side of this transit, is that you may be over indulging in post New Year’s celebrations, causing financial setbacks to occur, as your credit card is bogged down with frivolous charges. The lunar eclipse January 21st helps you get your head back in focus, as the Moon connects with your Sun, starting your monthly personal New Moon which will lead you into personal growth and professional development.

Virgo
January will make your head spin, Virgo! Especially around financial and professional matters. With your head recently lost in love, you have let your business go and you are now feeling the financial pinch of the matter. Uranus reawakens the house of debt in your chart, firing up your emotions as you see all the bills piling up and your bank account dwindling. Uranus has been moving backwards for the past five months, asking you to reassess your financials since August 7th. With its forward moment on the 6th, you will feel the sting of not planning your finances carefully, causing you to make hasty decisions mid month. January 13th will bring a professional opportunity your way, however, it may not align with your personal values, causing inner turmoil within you. Deciding whether or not to compromise your beliefs will be the focal point of the second half of the month until January 31st, when you decide to abandon the project to protect your ideals.

Libra
Work has been intense for you these past few months, causing your batteries to feel depleted and in need of a recharge. Venus, the North Node of Destiny, and the asteroid Chiron may bring personal and financial success on the 3rd and 4th. However, the solar eclipse on January 5th exhausts you, making you want to retreat from work momentarily. January 6th brings issues regarding work relationships, furthering professional boundaries that are pushed to the max January 8th. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings new career opportunities your way, as long as you have the energy to get out of the house in network. If not, use LinkedIn to your advantage and rub virtual elbows with those who can help advance your career.

Scorpio
2019 is a powerful year for you, Scorpio. You are finally getting the recognition you deserve, as well as the paycheck. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to cement your goals for the year, allowing you to start a whole new chapter in your professional career in publishing and spiritual pursuits. January 13th brings a unique project your way, which will definitely intrigue you. However, don’t sign off on the concept right away, as Neptune has some tricks up its sleeve, which may cause a financial windfall for you. Known to be a powerful financier, after all you are the sign of “sex, death, and taxes,” you may fall victim to a financial scheme on the 13th. Read the fine lines of the document and details of the project before committing, as you may find there are flaws, or, even deception in the contract. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings you a  new job title. Enjoy your newly professional status, after all, you’ve earned it!

Sagittarius
Your finances will be taken on a roller coaster throughout January. January 2nd brings a financial loss, due to restrictive Saturn limiting your cash flow. This is heightened during the solar eclipse January 5th when your wallet may feel emptier than ever. A friend may offer assistance during the eclipse. If you decide to take the loan, be clear with the details. Let your friend know how and when you can pay them back. If you are not clear, January 13th can cause more issues than expected around your relationships and money. The solar eclipse January 21st gives you the chance to rethink your finances, with help of an advisor. Take the advice they offer and stick to a budget—this will only serve to help improve your finances.

Capricorn
January is your month for success, dear sea-goat. With your solar return bringing you lessons from your yearly orbit around the Sun, plus Saturn and Mercury aligning with your Sun, you are unstoppable now. Committing to the next dream is essential January 2nd and the 4th. Venus is harmoniously aspecting the North Node of Destiny, who is galvanizing through your house of partnerships, and healing asteroid Chiron, allowing you to put your smooth talking skills to work and collaborate with others on the 3rd and the 4th of January. This empowering energy brings you into the eclipse January 5th feeling stronger than ever, giving you the motivation to transform your world on the 6th, as your old hopes and wishes are reignited by the fortuitous luminary. January 8th brings frustrations around the next big professional step, as you are too eager to rush through projects without understanding what they entail. A big paycheck comes your way on the 20th, bringing you into the lunar eclipse January 21st with gold filling your bank account and an advance payment on your dreams.

Aquarius
January 3rd and 4th bring hopeful news of an impending promotion your way. However, be prepared to fight with your colleagues over the position during the solar eclipse January 5th. January 13th is a powerful day for you, Aquarius. As Jupiter and Neptune square off, you may feel professionally and monetarily stunted, as your bank account will dwindle, causing you alarm. While your loving cup may feel tipped and empty during this time, you will be once again hopeful on the 20th, when you start your solar return. The light will once again shine on you, promising you a lucrative year ahead. The lunar eclipse on the 21st brings a professional partnership to light, making you rethink your commitments to joint ventures. Finally, January 31st makes you more lustful over money—be sure to make secure investments before you cartwheel through your bank account.

Pisces
January is a bit of a mixed energy. The solar eclipse January 5th align you with powerful colleagues, who will help advance your career. The caveat falls within you, dear sea dweller, as you are unsure if you are suited for this career path. You are having a professional existential crisis of sorts on January 13th, which will lead you to question your goals. You may feel as though you have worked so hard on your path and you have hit a brick wall, or, as though there is no advancement in your career. Regardless, you are now motivated to seek out new opportunities and professional directions, which will lead you down the path of success on the 31st.

Aries
The New Moon November 7th is a favorable time to consolidate loans or start a new financial plan, as you are able to clear long standing debts under this luminary. Be sure to weigh all options before signing onto a new plan, as Mercury Retrograde, which starts on the 16th, will leave you wondering if you made the right financial decision. Uranus will also move out of the financial sector of your chart on the 6th, which will add much needed stability to your finances.

Taurus
As Jupiter glides into Sagittarius on the 8th, you may be forced to get real about your finances. Spending freely has added some wonderful garments to your closet, but, depleted your bank account and maxed out your credit cards, forcing you to feel the strain on November 16th. When Mercury starts gliding backwards on the 16th, you may start to panic due to your lack of funds. However, as the Sun shifts into Sagittarius on November 22nd, you will have ample time to get your finances in check.

Gemini
The Nodes of Destiny enter the financial sector of your chart on the 6th, placing an emphasis on your spending habits. Cutting back or even coupon clipping may feel foreign to you, however, it will help you save your pennies, thus, yielding more money in your bank account.  November 16th brings work matters to a head, as drama with coworkers takes center stage. Try to stay out of the office politics, as arguments may consume your workplace for the next several weeks.

Cancer
Uranus will bring unexpected highs or lows to the career sector of your chart on the 6th. Try to stay on the cutting edge at work and promote extraordinary, transformative ideas or projects to your boss. Not only will this elevate your status in the office, but, it will also allow your superiors to view you as a pioneer. Just be careful not to step on anyone’s toes, as your colleagues may experience professional jealousy over you on the 16th, when Mercury starts gliding backwards in its retrograde motion.

Leo
Neptune has been swimming backwards for months, forcing you to take a closer look at your debt issues. When Neptune stops it’s backstroke on the 24th, you have the ability to gain insight into the proper steps you need to take in order to heal your debt. This may take some time to figure out, especially, since the Sun and Jupiter are urging you spend frivolously this month. Take your time, keep your eyes open and be aware of your spending this month, in order to keep the current issue under control.

Virgo
Venus’s backwards journey is now hitting your finances hard, forcing you to revisit financial missteps from September. Retrogrades are a great time to revise and reorganize financial matters. Think of this as your time to redo past spending faux pas—even hitting the rewind button or returning purchases bought then. The Nodal shift on the 6th allows you to finally gain recognition amongst your peers, while the Full Moon on the 23rd illuminates a new path or opportunity for you to take at work, which will elevate your position.

Libra
Both Venus and Uranus Retrograde have reeked havoc on your chart—particularly your finances since September (when Venus entered its pre retrograde shadow). November serves to give you relief from the financial lulls and stresses you have been under for the past few months. As the Nodes of Destiny switch signs on the 6th, your career gets a sudden bump. Try not to overextend yourself—balance out your work and personal time to create an equilibrium, allowing you to steadily increase your workout, not a burnout from taking on too many projects at once.

Scorpio
The 6th may ignite the flame with your colleagues, sparking past issues and rivalries to engulf the office. While the bright flames may intrigue you, step away from the from the spectacle, as it will burn you the most if you engage. November 8th brings an abundance of wealth your way, heightening on November 22nd when the Sun highlights the financial sector of your chart, allowing you to treat yourself to fanciful treats and gifts—after all, you’ve earned it!

Sagittarius
The Nodes of Destiny enter the house of other people’s money and property (OPM and OPP) on the 6th, lending insight into your relationship with money—particularly overspending. It’s time to make a plan to payback loans, debts, and manage your finances with care, which unfortunately means no more reckless spending! Penny pinching may be challenging at first, however, your fiery optimism and can do attitude will help you overcome any obstacle at hand.

Capricorn
Venus Retrograde will change your career—for the better! Venus, who glided back into the career sector of your chart on Halloween, has given you a chance during its backspin to change your work situations and goals. Think about your endgame, see what you can change in your career and with the relationship you have with your boss. This will help you achieve your goals swiftly.

Aquarius
Jupiter’s ingress into Sagittarius on November 8th will bring endless possibilities to your loving cup. Yes, dear Aquarius, the next year will be extremely fortunate to your networking skills, even bringing hopes of a new job or promotion. Also, expect to have more clarity on finances as illusive planet Neptune, stops playing tricks on your finances on the 24th, by turning direct. Financial affairs may be a little cloudy still, but, you will be able to keep your head above water by the end of November.

Pisces
As your planetary ruler enters the dignified sign of Sagittarius on the 8th, you will experience a surge in status. Luck runs high through the career sector of your chart, granting success and even a promotion.

Aries
The bills may seem endless this month, Aries. Every day you may receive a new letter asking for money owed. All this financial stress may lead to exhaustion. However, Venus Retrograde, which starts on the 5th can help to consolidate credit, make payment plans, and offer debt relief. Calling in a financial advisor, or asking for advice from others, on the 12th will help elevate your assets on the 26th. Don’t be a hero, use your fiery energy to get assistance, instead of falling victim to endless bills.

Taurus

While others may be scrambling to keep their livelihood afloat this month, you are mostly concerned with partnerships—deciding what projects and people to invest your money and time in. The 5th causes you to rethink recent endeavors, giving you the option to renegotiate recent contracts. The 26th gives you clarity, as you may possibly renege on a deal. Listen to your intuition this month, if a deal, contract, or situation doesn’t feel right—let it go, move on to the next project right away and don’t waste time on nonsense.
Gemini 
Your intellectual nature often motivates you to logically assess work and financial matters. However, October leaves you feeling lost, as your pristine crystal clear judgement is now foggy. Disappointments at work on the 18th and 19th may force you to feel lost in terms of your career, as feelings of inadequacy come to surface. The 20th and 22nd urge you to take control of financial and career power dynamics. But, you may take a step back, opting to ride the wave before taking any actions, due to your lack of career motivation and uncertainty this month.
Cancer 
Living in a rich girl’s world this October allows you to step out of your shell and spend the fruits of your labor on forbidden pleasures. This is quite exciting for you, dear crab, as you often spend frugally. The 5th and the 26th jumpstart your urge to invest on passion projects. Just be watchful over your investments and contracts with others on the 24th, as a “trusted” party may lead you astray on the 27th.
Leo
Often the life of the party, you tend to overspend quite often. This will cause issues in October, as your generous heart has left you scrambling for cash. As Venus starts to glide backwards on October 5th, you will immediately start to feel the financial pinch. Don’t stress, sweet lion! Use October to revise your monetary plan and create a budget. Even though you may feel financially overwhelmed and your bank account may be underwhelmed, you have the opportunity to enhance your assets with simple planning and foresight, which will allow you to feel more in control of your finances by the 26th.
Virgo
Spending money frivolously with friends this past month sure has put a drain on your once lush bank account. October begins with the heat on your finances, causing you to feel the financial drain on the 3rd and 7th. The 31st brings a new chance to revise your finances, as Venus moves backwards through your house of finances, offering you an opportunity to change the game for November.
Libra
This month takes a bite out of your bank account, Libra. As your planetary ruler, Venus, glides backwards in the financial sector of your chart (starting on October 5th), the next 41 days will prove to be taxing on you, creating much anxiety around money. Be cautious this month! Do not spend your cash on fanciful inclinations and desires. Try to create a penchant for coupon clipping and bargain deals, which will help you reassess your wallet by Halloween, when Venus aligns with your Sun, thus, allowing you to spend your savings on a lovely costume, drinks, and fun with friends.
Scorpio 
October may prove to be challenging for you, Scorpio. Venus kicks off her retrograde journey October 5th, on your Sun, forcing you to make minor financial touch ups. This may come as a surprise to you, after all, you are usually financially responsible. The 9th gives you the opportunity to address your current financial missteps, giving you the chance to clear your current monetary lulls on the 23rd, by bringing in an advisor on the 24th to help you budget.

Sagittarius

Your current financial state may be stressful, as you’re nearing your account minimum. Luckily for you, Sag, your friends step in on October 2nd and offer you financial support. While you may view their kindness as unnecessary, accepting their help on the 4th, will allow you to be at ease on the 5th. Be aware, the loan does come with strings. Try to make proper guidelines and boundaries on the 7th and 9th, by openly discussing a payback plan. If not, the 22nd will prove to be challenging with your peers and your wallet.

Capricorn 

Known for your work horse drive and determination, you often place all your efforts into your career. However, this month, you are swept away by politics, dedicating yourself more as a SJW than a workaholic. Your charisma will be placed on humanitarian efforts, starting on the 5th, as unsavory news hits the airways. The 14th gives you an opportunity to assess your beliefs, creating a platform to express yourself, allowing for you to raise money for your cause on the 18th, 26th, and 31st.
Aquarius
All work and no play can make your loving cup feel under nourished and appreciated. October 5th forces you to dedicate your energy toward work, as major shifts and transformations at the workplace are underway, making you feel like a fish out of water. This may cause frustrations within, as you won’t have time to enjoy the frivolities of life for most of October. Keep the faith, dear Aquarius! The 29th allows you to burn off some steam as work issues clear up, allowing for you to celebrate Halloween with friends with no worries.

Career Tarot Forecast

 

Happy back to school season, especially for those of us in the School of Life. This is the first week of the whole summer where all personal planets are all moving direct, and while that usually motivates us to get back into the swing of things, we may still feel sluggish due to the sheer weight of all that we’ve experienced during this past couple months. Try to focus on steadily integrating lessons rather than pushing forward at top speed.

The Hermit guides us through the first couple weeks of September, which is very appropriate for Virgo season. He is facing the past, shining the light of his wisdom on all that we have gone through in the past two months, giving us time to discern what it is that we truly want to carry through to the manifestation phase in the coming harvest season. With the Hermit as our guide, we are being asked to release outdated expectations in favor of what truly matters to us. 9, the Hermit’s number, is all about the process of purging what is finished and integrating what is our’s as we step into the next phase of our journey. And so we begin at an ending: what is holding us back? How can we let the dead things fall away? The Hermit makes these decisions in quiet and solitude, so make time for reflection, especially at the new moon in Virgo on September 9th.

While the Hermit requires solitude, the 4 of Pentacles reminds us not to isolate ourselves to the point of disconnection. Sharing time and energy will open us up to new opportunities. We may be afraid of being taken advantage of or of not being valued in the workplace, but creating a barrier between ourselves and others, seeing our job as “just a job” will make us feel small and may even have a negative impact on our career in the long-run. It is better to take conscious steps towards something we desire than to move through where we are as only a shell of ourselves.

That said, if you are feeling stuck and can’t take big leaps towards your dream job this month, make a concerted effort to open up to friends, partners, and family, valuing community to help you maintain a more satisfying work / life balance. The 4 of Pentacles asks us to focus less on what we have and more on what we have to share. With the Lovers card representing the last part of the month, it seems that our work in solitude with the Hermit and the way we use our experience of the “little emperor” (4 of Pentacles) leads us to a fork in the road. The Lovers card speaks to the moral obligation we have to make commitments that nourish our soul’s purpose. Are we committed to our path or are we floating? Either way, it’s ok! Wandering is vital to making any commitment. The Lovers are there to remind us that we have a duty to ourselves to be honest about where we are and what we feel called to do with our lives for the good of humankind. You may be looking at a great collaboration or the opportunity to join a team that inspires you. Where the Hermit cautioned us, the Lovers asks us to reach out and share ideas, openly seeking our place in the world.

Virgo and the Astrology of Virginity

Recently the Sun has made its annual move into tropical Virgo, the symbol of the woman and refers to the word virgin. While our modern minds think of virginity as referring to sexual experience and specifically valuing chastity in women, this common definition has strayed far from the word’s original meaning.

Virgo comes from Latin meaning “unwedded girl, maiden.” It wasn’t until around 1300 that it was used to denote a lack of sexual experience or imply chastity. In Greek translations the word virgin meant “one unto herself.” Similar to many words in English, the original meaning became lost as our Western culture became more and more patriarchal in nature.

With this evolution of language in mind, virginity then actually indicates freedom, self-sufficiency, and wholeness. One of my favorite authors, Nancy Qualls-Corbett goes on to say a virgin is “untouched by man, or…the laws of man.” In this way, virginity is not something that a person could “take” or “give away.” Virginity instead belongs to each of us as an expression of wholeness and divinity and the stories of the virgin goddesses remind us of the power of our own sovereignty.  

In Greek and Roman traditions there were often three main virgin goddesses: Vesta/Hestia, Minerva/Athena, and Diana/Artemis. Regardless of gender or GNC, I believe each of these goddesses speak to an aspect of our own wholeness and virginity. Understanding these archetypes in an astrological context gives us important clues about how their archetypal energies show up in our lives and our soul patterning.

I enjoy working with the asteroids and dwarf planets as they are often named after goddesses and invite a complexity not found with just the more popular planetary bodies in our solar system. While the names are gendered, I don’t think of them as unique aspects to any gender and instead different energies that move through us at different times.

How can we work with these archetypal, virginal energies throughout the next month? For me the answers lie in our natal Vesta, Pallas Athene, and Diana asteroids. Both Greek and Roman, though largest in the solar system, all in these asteroids orbit in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Here’s a rundown of each of their meanings in the collective and personal astrology charts:

Asteroid Vesta // Named after Greek Goddess of Hearth and Home

The second largest asteroid discovered in 1807 and was more recently in the news because the satellite Dawn completed its orbit around the asteroid. Currently at 23 degrees Sagittarius trining Pallas Athene perhaps igniting the sacredness of expanding our horizons both mentally and physically.

  • Claim to fame: Vesta the goddess refused to marry Apollo or Poseidon, though may have taken them as lovers. The Vestal virgins of ancient Rome who kept the sacred fires burning and were honored for their chastity.
  • Aspect of virginity: Represents how we channel sexual energy and the blending of both the sacred and profane
  • Astrological energy: What we hold sacred, how we connect through spirit with ceremony, routines or personal rituals, sexual potential or sacred sexuality practices such as Tantra

 

Asteroid Pallas Athene (Athena) // Greek Goddess of Wisdom, Craft, Poetry, and War

The second asteroid discovered, in 1802, and third largest asteroid, goes by Pallas or Pallas Athene named after Athena. Currently it sits at 22 degrees Leo next to the Sun shining a light on our desire to learn or highlighting our unique version of genius.

  • Claim to fame: A warrior goddess born from Zeus’ head in full armor she event had an entire city named after her (Athens). She fought with Jason and the Argonauts and wore Medusa’s head on her breastplate.
  • Aspect of virginity: The light of the intellect and ability to think for ourselves as well as the internal balance of masculine and feminine energies and head and heart
  • Astrological energy: Our ability to perceive and understand patterns, which require the integration of both intuition and intelligence…as wisdom. Can reveal gifts of creativity or identification with the “know-it-all.”


Asteroid Diana // Named after Roman Goddess of Hunt and Nature

Discovered in 1863 by a German astronomer, it is small compared to the other virgin goddess asteroids and isn’t even within the top 20 when it comes to size. Diana currently sits at 21 degrees Aries, creating a grand trine with the other two virgin goddesses. Together, these two asteroids in such a strong fire sign uplift and empower feminine energies.

  • Claim to fame: She begged her father Jupiter to liberate her from marriage and motherhood, though in Greek mythology she had 50 daughters with the handsome shepherd Endymion. She also had the power to talk to and control animals in the forest and there is even a branch of Wiccan dedicated to her.
  • Aspect of virginity: Freedom and the relationship to our wild nature as well as the connections between women as a part of our unity under patriarchy
  • Astrological energy: Where and how we yearn for our own freedom, perpetual “hunt” for something, our ability to nurture “sisterly” relationships, connection to the wildness in ourselves

Virgo and the asteroid virgin goddesses remind us of the power inherent in our own life force energies and self-possession with or without our sexual relationship to others. A facet of self that beckons us into being whole, complete, and unfettered by the man-made laws and expectations of the gods or patriarchy. During this virgin season may we our inward experience and attitude that isn’t dependent on others for definition or happiness…whole unto ourselves. The way Vesta, Athena, and Diana would have wished.
