All About Aries

It's Aries season! This is the beginning of a series of blog posts for each sign.

Aries marks the beginning of spring. It is the beginning of the sun's cycle through the zodiac.

Aries is a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars. This is a sign of freedom. Aries wants to do whatever they want when they want. They want to be in charge of themselves more than in charge of others. They don't need a lot of social approval, and they tend to work best alone.

Aries is not an emotional sign. They don't like it when others are emotional either. As a fire sign, Aries can be impatient and energetic.

Mars and Aries are very similar. Mars is a courageous fighter. Mars likes to start new ventures and take action.

How I do an email tarot reading

t was suggested that I do a how I do tarot readings blog post. I never thought about it before. It didn’t occur to me that this might be interesting to some. Well, here I am. These are the steps I take when I do an email reading for others. When I read for myself, there are fewer steps.

First, I create a clear space. I believe a cluttered space can create a muddled reading. I’m not a naturally neat person, so my area isn’t perfect.

I reread the question and any info about the querent. Before I do the reading, I’ve already glanced at the reading. But now is the time I concentrate on the question and whatever information the querent shared with me.

Then I create a spread. Sometimes I write the spread down. Recently, I’ve been using my computer to type out a spread. I go through my crystals to decide what to hold over my third eye chakra. I usually choose between amethyst, lapis lazuli, fluorite, moonstone or azurite. The one I use the most is azurite. I hold it over my third eye (between the eyebrows) for as long as I feel is needed while slowly breathing in and out.

Brief Bill Clinton's Birth Chart Overview

I plan to do posts on other presidents. I choose Bill Clinton’s chart to do first because I happen to have it printed out. The chart I’m using is Tropical Whole Signs.

Clinton’s Sun sign is Leo. His Moon is in Taurus, and his ascendant is Libra. He is a strong Leo. The Sun rules Leo, and in his chart, Leo is governed by the Sun. He is confident, adventurous, loves to have fun and creative.

The first thing I notice while looking at Clinton’s chart is that he has no water in his chart! None. Water is associated with emotions and intuition. Does that mean he has no feelings? Nah. He is mostly air which is not shocking since he loves to communicate and take action.

As far as the modes go, he is mostly fixed. That indicates he isn’t fond of change. He likes stability. According to his chart, he is not very mutable which means he doesn’t adapt or transform well.

His Mercury is in Leo. That leads me to believe he would be a great teacher because he loves to acquire knowledge and he has excellent communication skills.  Looking at this overall chart, and if this were not Bill Clinton’s chart, I would recommend this person teach for a living. A lot of this chart is about learning and spreading that knowledge.

Clinton’s first house is ruled by Venus. I’m sure it shocks no one that that shows he is flirtatious and affectionate. It also shows he is possessive which I don’t think we see in his public life.

The sixth house is about career and money. His sixth house is ruled by Jupiter. I would warn him of not working too hard. It doesn’t always mean the person is a hard worker. It also can show someone committed to their work.

Top Five Astrology Books for Beginners

Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need by Joanna Martine. Excellent book, but I hate to tell you it is definitely NOT the only astrology book you’ll ever need. It is a great first book to read. It is easy to understand with no prior knowledge of astrology required. It spends quite a bit of time on sun signs which probably makes most astrologers want to throw this book across the room.

It’s nice to have a copy of a birth chart when using this book. This book made me comfortable looking at a chart. However, don’t be like me and try to do a 10-page birth chart analysis from just using this book. It will not go well. It won’t be accurate because you need to know more than what is in this book.

The book covers moon and ascendant signs, cusps, and houses. It also goes into detail on each planet. I do recommend this book. Obviously. But know this is only the beginning.

Working With The Moon

My free “How to Work With the Moon” eBook is going out to email subscribers on January 17. Why work with the Moon? Each Moon has a different energy. The moon stays in each sign for about two to three days each month.

Fire signs are trailblazers, assertive, and confident. What is something you would want to do during a Fire Moon? Launch a new product.

Earth Signs are grounded, loyal, and responsible. Have a repetitive task, you’ve been avoiding? Do it during an Earth Moon.

Air signs are talkative, smart and objective. An Air Moon is a great time to generate new ideas. Brainstorm!

Astrological Signs and Careers

Here is an excerpt from my astrological signs and careers PDF. Coming out in mid-December to people on my mailing list.

Most people know their Sun Sign AKA horoscope sign because all the person needs to know is their birthdate. However, to gain more profound knowledge of yourself, I feel it is helpful to know your Moon and Ascendant (Rising Sign). To identify the latter two signs, you need to know not only where you were born, but also your time of birth.

For example, My Sun Sign is Taurus, but I find that I often relate more to my Ascendant which is Pisces. So I encourage you to read about your Sun Sign, Moon Sign and your Ascendant.
