YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO DECIPHERING THE NUMBERS IN YOUR DREAMS: THE NUMEROLOGY DREAM DICTIONARY

By Katherine Anne Lee

Dreaming and Numbers
DREAMING IN NUMBERS?

PERHAPS YOU ARE, AND DON’T EVEN KNOW IT…

First things first, to see numbers outright in your dreams in no ordinary thing. In fact, it’s a pretty rare occurrence, so if you actually DO see numbers blinking back at you from your subconscious mind, it’s likely there’s a powerful message vying for your attention!

What is much more common is to see the expression of numbers in your dreams: to see specific quantities, sequences, symbols, pairs and patterns, for example.

Perhaps you dream of snakes, spiders, or your teeth falling out? Or perhaps that you’re pregnant, being chased or even flying? These are some of the most common dream themes, but rarely are they viewed through a numerological lens. Often so rich with imagery, mood and emotion, counting up quantities of things when you’re sleeping isn’t really a priority! But if you can try to recall how many snakes you could see, how many spiders there were, or how many teeth actually did fall out, you’ll start to reveal a whole other level to your dream interpretation!

It is easy to overlook the hidden number meanings within the psychology of your dreamscapes; but with a little practice and intent, numbers will begin to come to the fore, and so will their messages.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS THAT NUMBERS COULD SHOW UP IN YOUR DREAMS:

Actual numbers themselves may appear (or keep appearing).
You may hear a number, or hear the same noise a number of times.
You may observe the same object a number of times.
You may be given a set number of things.
You may have a quantity of money, or be asked to pay a set price for something.
As a date.
As a geometrical pattern with a set number of points, sides or symmetries.
A number of characters or the same character appearing a number of times.
The same thing may happen a set number of times (repetition).

HOW TO INTERPRET THE NUMBERS IN YOUR DREAMS

In dreamwork, numbers hold the same meaning and symbolism that Numerologists apply to them in waking life. (Take a look at our Number Dictionary for more information).

But they also mean a whole lot more.

This is because dreams flow and exist in much more right-brained, feminine, mythic, imaginal, illogical and poetical ways, than how our waking life is perceived. The stories, messages, and meanings they contain can’t be worked out and made sense of as you would a day at the office!

Don’t read them literally.

You aren’t going to be attacked by a snake.

Your teeth aren’t about to fall out.

The surface level themes of your dreams are very rarely what they’re really about, so get used to thinking on a deeper level. And to interpret the meaning of numbers in dreams, we also need to move into a much deeper level of numerological dream-interpretation.

Some of the associations and interpretations described below may not seem to make much sense. But stick with them. The messages that they carry (and could be important for you to understand) may take a lot longer than you’re used to, to sink in. The world of sleep and dreams doesn’t offer instant gratification like our Google-fueled reality, so take your time interpreting your dreams and trying to ‘get it’.

Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

So What Do Numbers in Dreams Actually Mean?

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 0 (ZERO)?

Zero isn’t always regarded as a number, more as an absence of any number. SO this is a good place to start your dream interpretation if you’re seeing the zero.

THE ZERO CAN REPRESENT:

The void
Lack
A weakness or shortcoming
Something that is missing
A marker, to take the place of something you want, think you should have or something that has been taken from you.

But the zero is also a symbol of potential. Emptiness isn’t always a ‘negative’ and thing the zero could be showing up to offer you limitlessness and infinite possibilities.

THE ZERO CAN ALSO REPRESENT:

Huge Potential
Infinity
Eternity
Immortality
Continuity

It’s worth also noting that the zero appears most often as a multiplier. It elevates numbers up into their higher octaves – so that 1 becomes 10 and 2 becomes 20, or even 200 with the added presence of the zero. So the zero amplifies. It makes things stronger, bigger, more powerful versions of themselves. So is this what the zero is coming into your dreams to show you?

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 1 (ONE)?

THE NUMBER 1 CAN REPRESENT:

Leadership
Power
Direction
Confidence
Individuality
Creativity
Originality
Uniqueness
New beginnings
The Masculine

In dreams, this number can be a huge sign of encouragement and can provide a great energetic boost.

As a potent sign of new beginnings, the number 1 can be an indicator of being in the very first stages of a new project or phase of life. The 1 also represents the masculine, in particular, the masculine qualities that you have within (dreams very rarely refer to anyone except you). So you could be being asked to explore this part of your inner world.

If seen multiple times (dreaming of 111 or 11:11 for example), the number 1 can indicate that you are moving through some kind of personal gateway and evolving spiritually.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 2 (TWO)?

THE NUMBER 2 CAN REPRESENT:

Partnership
Relationship
Love
Balance
Unity
Equality
Spirit
Duality
Opposition
Conflict
The Feminine

In dreams, the 2 can pull your attention to the “other” – to other people, places, things and ideas which are all outside of you, and with which you need to form a different kind of relationship. It can be a sign that you need to share and co-operate, and allow others into your life to create balance. You can’t do it all on your own!

As a highly spiritual number, the appearance of 2 may also indicate that Spirit is trying to get your attention. Open up to the possibility of help and guidance from above.

Pairs of things in dreams are often indicators of duality – of two opposing forces which are active in your life – like yin and yang, light and dark, new and old. Some kind of internal battle may be taking place, which needs your conscious attention. Or is there an external conflict – are you at odds with another person, situation or idea?

The 2 also represents the feminine, in particular, the feminine qualities that you have within (dreams very rarely refer to anyone except you). So you could be being asked to explore this part of your inner world.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 3 (THREE)?

THE NUMBER 3 CAN REPRESENT:

Creativity
Fruition
Abundance
Luck
Children
Motivation
Drama
Expression
Play

In dream interpretations, the number 3 often indicates personal growth. A symbol of the archetypal child, this number can indicate that something is coming to you through unity – the unity of body, mind and spirit; past, present and future; breath, will and imagination, etc… Or perhaps it contains the message that there is a third ingredient you need to add into your work, in order for it to come to fruition?

For many, 3 is the number of luck (though don’t we all know that in truth, you make your own luck!?) So in dreams, this is generally a very positive sign. It is also very motivating as its energy is inherently lively and dynamic!

Many also believe this number to be an indicator that the ascended masters are close. So if you have been looking for reassurance, this number could be bringing it.

As a number closely associated with expression, the appearance of the 3 in your dreams may indicate an issue around finding, and using your voice. The 3 could be a sign that you need to focus on clarity, authenticity and tact in your communications.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 4 (FOUR)?

THE NUMBER 4 CAN REPRESENT:

Strength
Stability
Structure
Boundaries and limitations
Hard work
Practicality
Proficiency
Resources

The 4 is a stable and secure number, indicating safety, commitment and reliability. When it appears in dreams, it is incredibly reassuring, often symbolizing an abundance of resources and available skill in your life.

It can be a sign of hard work – that you’re giving too much OR that you are required to give more. In either case, think closely about what the 4 could be referring to: think about how it showed up in your dream, as this will give you a big clue.

The number 4 may also be interpreted as a limitation, and reveal where you are experiencing restrictions in your life. Are you inhibiting your growth? Are you blocking your potential? Or are there circumstances in your life which are restricting you, that you need to break free from?

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 5 (FIVE)?

THE NUMBER 5 CAN REPRESENT:

Freedom
Change
Curiosity
Spontaneity
Adventure
Discoveries
Storytelling
Sensuality

The Number 5 often appears in dreams when change is happening OR when change needs to be embraced. It carries an energy of impulsiveness, risk-taking, and spontaneity, so if your dream-world is holding space for this, it’s a sign that your waking life can too!

Are you allowing yourself enough freedom? Are your routines keeping you trapped? The 5 may appear to show you where (and how) to liberate yourself or to reveal certain aspects of your personality which are not being allowed to fully express.

The 5 is also a really sensual number, so can show up in dreams when you’re awakening to the more sensual aspects of life. It encourages an exploration of how your physical and spiritual sides interact with the world around you.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 6 (SIX)?

THE NUMBER 6 CAN REPRESENT:

Love
Union
Family
Domesticity and domestic spaces
Creativity
Personal needs and balance

The Number 6 relates to relationships and love, both in a romantic sense and in terms of family and community ties. It’s a deeply harmonizing number, so in dreams, it can be a sign that you need to settle and find balance in your life.

The 6 will often show up in your sleep when you need to come into a better relationship with yourself. Are you sleeping enough? Are you eating right? Nurturing your body, mind and spirit with the right sustaining inputs? The 6 holds a frequency which resonates closely with maternal instincts, so seeing this number could be a sign that you need to ‘mother’ yourself a little more.

As a double 3, the 6 holds a huge creative potential. Is it showing up in your dreams as two 3s? Or a rhythm which could relate to the 3? If so, you’re being asked to nurture your creative side and let this part of yourself out to play!

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 7 (SEVEN)?

THE NUMBER 7 CAN REPRESENT:

Spirituality
Mysticism
Inner Worlds
Healing
Self-love
Self-trust
Sacrifice

The Number 7 is the number most closely associated with the other realms. So when it shows up in your dreams, it should be interpreted as a powerful sign that there’s more going on in your slumber than first appears!

You’re being given a mystical sign.

Pay attention to what else is happening in your dreams and consider closely in what way the 7 is appearing. These are all clues you need to follow, in order to receive more insight from the Spirit realms.

The 7 can also be a good indicator that you have some soul-searching to do. How often do you look within for guidance and answers? If you’re prone to searching everywhere but your own heart and mind, the 7 could be a sign to re-tune that inner compass.

The 7 often comes in dreams as a reassuring sign of divine presence, so if you’ve been looking for one, you got it.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 8 (EIGHT)?

THE NUMBER 8 CAN REPRESENT:

Success
Achievement
Authority
Power
Money
Financial and material gains
Balance
Flow
Regeneration

Many people associate the number 8 with abundance and seeing it in dreams is a sign of imminent success and reward. Which can be true. But in fact, the 8 is an ancient symbol of the flow of energy: of giving and receiving, coming and going, winning and losing.

If the 8 shows up in your dreams, it could mean that you’re too set on the reward and preoccupied with money. Perhaps you need to re-engage with the ebb and flow of life? Or perhaps you ARE on a winning streak, and the 8 is appearing as a sign that you’re almost at the finish line! In which case, you’re being strongly reminded to let go of the outcome, and enjoy the ride.

Another significance of the 8, is its association with power. So if this number is appearing in your dreams, consider your relationship to your own power, to other people in power, to the concept of power in general and how it sits with you. This number can show up as a sign you have work to do in this area, in your waking life. So the way in which it appears could offer significant guidance and extra information for you.

WHAT’S THE DREAM MEANING OF 9 (NINE)?

THE NUMBER 9 CAN REPRESENT:

Idealism
Leadership
Collective Concerns
Spiritual Advancement
Completion
Closure
Endings and beginnings

When the Number 9 shows up in your dreams, it can be interpreted in a myriad of different ways. It’s a number which resonates strongly with idealism and highest potentials. So it could be a sign that you need to strive for more. Or perhaps your expectations around something are actually too high, and you need to lighten up?

The 9 can often be a sign of the work which is required for the greater good. Perhaps the contents and message of your dream is of importance for the collective?

The meaning most often attributed to the 9 in dreamwork is completion and closure. It often shows up in the subconscious when an ending is close (it could refer to a project, a relationship or any number of things. Again, its context in your dream will be key!)

Your Friendly, Baseline Explanation Of The 12 Houses Of Astrology

BY SARAH PENIX, OHIO UNIVERSITY

Astrology Houses

Iastrology, the 12 houses rule over various realms of life, depending on which sign each house is in on your natal chart.

The first six houses are the personal houses, meaning that they relate to how you as an individual appear, synthesize the world and what energies you radiate. The first house encompasses your ascendant or rising sign, which dictates your identity and the mask you wear for the world.

Houses seven through 12 are transpersonal houses, so they dictate how you interact with others and society. The seventh house is also your descendant, or the house opposite of the self and identity, which means it is all about how you care for others and your awareness for the world around you.

Because the first and seventh houses mark shifts in how the houses affect people in their natal charts, it is important to understand all of the other factors in natal charts that can dictate a person’s desires, perspectives and goals.

Dividing the houses into two groups is useful for interpreting natal charts; however, the individual meanings of each house are more helpful in understanding transits and aspects of your own natal chart and life.

Whether you are trying to learn about the houses so that you can fully read your natal chart or you want to gain a better understanding of planetary transits, it is essential to understand what each house represents and how it is ruled.

1. House of the Self

The first house is how you project yourself through expression, mannerisms and personal image. This house is ruled by Mars and connects everyone to the sign of Aries through a fiery energy that urges you to truly represent yourself and acknowledge your potential.

The first house in natal charts is your persona and beginning, but only because it is also the best way to understand karmic debt and how they personally relate to the world. Because it is much like the South Node, it portrays mental habits and thus dictates how you process things.

2. House of Value

Connected to the sign Taurus ruled by Venus, the second astrology house rules over your values and material goals. In the natal chart, it also governs income, natural talents, wealth and how you feel safe.

Because what you own is not only material, this house also rules over our comforts, abilities and needs. It not only dictates how you view money and helps you define a livelihood, but also drives to what you value over material items.

3. House of Communication

With a focus on travel and mental agility, the third house is ruled by Mercury and related to the sign Gemini. In natal charts, it speaks to your strongest desires and the way you meet your obligations.

Because it rules over fundamental education and communication, it reveals your ego through what you are born into along with day-to-day happenings. Lastly, the third house rules siblings, relatives and with whom you get close.

4. House of the Home

The fourth house represents how and where your soul is centered and feels grounded. Because it is ruled by the sign Cancer and the Moon, it dictates what has shaped a person into who they are and what kind of parent you could be.

Who and what appears when you close your eyes is the fourth house’s reality. It is your childhood, your environment, your ancestors and home. It is your greatest comfort and your greatest sadness. The sign in your fourth house shows how you get satisfaction emotionally and can speak to your relationship with your maternal figures because this house is ruled by the moon, which dictates motherhood.

5. House of Pleasure

The fifth house is vital to a person’s livelihood. Ruled by Leo and the Sun, this house is responsible for entertainment, pleasure and love. In the natal chart, it speaks to how a person has fun, finds happiness and channels creativity; however, it also can reveal what a person obsesses over and how they view casual sex.

The fifth house also gives insight into a person’s first-born child, so depending on an individual’s placement in the fifth house, synastry can reveal the gender and character of the person’s first-born.

6. House of Health

Virgo and Mercury rule the sixth house, representing your role in day-to-day life, simple tasks from hygiene to routine chores and responsibilities. In your natal chart, the sixth house can reveal things the universe knows about your general health and how you serve others.

This Virgo-ruled domain also plays a role in how you answer mundane questions such as: have I fed the pet? Do I need a haircut? What should I wear today? Because those simple concepts allow us to execute our duties and work.

7. House of Partnership

As the first house is of the self, the seventh house is of others. Rules by Libra and Venus, it represents the relationship between your psychical body and the outer world or circumstance. It is heavily associated with partnerships of any kind, ranging from lovers to bosses and enemies.

Depending on which sign you have in the seventh house, you can find out more about how you connect with people in general and how you relate to the outside world.

8. House of Taboo

The primary focus of the eighth house is rebirth and transformation; however, with those things come death, endings, spirituality and gifts or transactions, including sex. Ruled by Scorpio and co-ruled by planets Mars and Pluto, this house is all about change.

In a natal chart, this placement can help someone understand that process of spiritual enlightenment as well as how people cover up things that are unpleasant or dirty in life.

9. House of Expansion

Also known as the house of philosophy, the ninth house is dedicated to an individual’s search for meaning in life. Ruled by Sagittarius and Jupiter, which is known to seek insight through knowledge, this arena has a focus on perspective and travel.

In your natal chart, it helps determine how someone approaches personal growth, philosophy, law, ethics and how we feel free or empowered.

10. House of Social Status

Known as Midheaven, the 10th house, which is ruled by Capricorn and Saturn, presides over achievements and honors but also your life’s calling and guiding influences (such as whether or not the stars say you’re destined to me a parent).

The 10th house, depending on your sign placement, shows how you build a reputation and public image. It also helps you understand what your primary principles are in terms of a career path.

11. House of Friends

Ruled by Aquarius and co-ruled by planets Saturn and Uranus, the 11th house fittingly dictates community, hopes, wishes and friendships. The 11th house suggests that the greatest social fulfillment comes from considering society’s needs as a whole.

In the natal chart, 11th house placements indicate our level of involvement in groups and what an individual’s group-based projects aim to accomplish, how you prioritize tasks and work toward your most efficient, best self.

12. House of the Subconscious

As the most hidden astrology house in the zodiac, the 12th house is where transcendence and the subconscious rule. In order to “find” this house, you must come to terms with losing the self by embracing spiritual awakening, in whatever form that may be.

Ruled by Neptune, Jupiter and Pisces, the 12th house in the natal chart can reveal how you go about that loss of self in order to transcend. It also shows how you deal with ego, as the ego is the opposite of the 12th house’s focus.

Virgo Season 2018 – Astrology Predictions To Help All Zodiac Signs Survive This Rough Time

By Brandi Neal

September Astrology

Astrologically, the bajiggity energy of this summer is almost over. And, in the words of Wilson Phillips: “Things’ll go your way if you hold on for one more day.” As you prepare to say goodbye to this cruel, cruel summer and welcome in fresh fall feels, Virgo season 2018 astrology predictions can give all zodiac signs something to hold on to. While the karmic energy of this summer likely has you dwelling on everything you lack, Virgo season will help shift your mindset to abundance.

Overall, the predictions for Virgo season are promising, but only those who go into it with a positive attitude will have an easy transition. If you’re mired in the dark and twisty, you can expect to attract more of the same. “[Virgo season is] a reminder to be impeccable in our thoughts and words as they create our reality and impact others as well as the world around us,” Michelle Karén, author, astrologer, and shaman, wrote on her website. “We are also required to pay attention to both the obvious and the subtle messages we receive on a constant basis that validate or invalidate the choices we are making.”

The good news is that if you actively work with the universe and your intentions are good, positive things will most certainly come your way. The bad news is that this is going to require a lot of effort. You’ll have to monitor your thoughts, intentions, and actions every moment of every day. If you think of it like a mental workout, and commit to putting in the work, all of the astrology predictions for Virgo season will bring you a bounty good luck. When you consider the alternative, this is really the only viable option.

1. Out With The Old

If you’ve been carrying some heavy burdens you’re ready to lay down, Virgo season is an ideal time to lighten your load. Saturn turns direct Sept. 6, and it’s going to allow you to resolve some difficult issues related to power and control. “These past months forced us to examine our relationship to structure, discipline and authority,” Karén explained. “Clearing our past required hard work. On a renewed foundation, we are now ready to start a new book in our lives.”

2. Develop A New Relationship With Money

The attitude you bring into Virgo season is particularly important when it comes to money. If you approach your financial situation from a place of lack instead of abundance, your money problems could persist. When it comes to any financial exchanges, don’t settle for less than you’re worth because you’re afraid you won’t get it. There’s a 100 percent chance you won’t get what you want if you fail to step outside of your comfort zone and take a chance. You are worthy, and the universe has your back.

3. An Unlucky Moon Cycle

While the summer of 2018 brought myriad super moons and eclipses, the September moon cycle is going to be a little different. Karén referred to this as the moon being void of course, which means that it won’t form a major aspect with any planet before it enters a particular sign. Because of this, she recommended that you don’t schedule anything important or make any major decisions Sept. 1-4, 6-8, 10-12, 14, 16, 17, 19, 21, and 22. That’s a lot of days to block out, so check out the exact times of day to avoid on each date on her website.

4. Mercury Becomes An Unlikely Ally

In general, any astrological mention of Mercury usually induces feelings of dread. However, after Mercury goes direct in late August and enters Virgo in early September, it’s going to behave exactly the opposite of how it acts when its doing its bajiggity backspin. “[You’ll] improve your critical thinking skills. Dealing with details becomes natural and easy,” Tarot-Astrology noted on its website. While this might seem totally bananas, don’t question this gift. Just go with it.

5. Beware Of Ultimatums

When Venus enters Scorpio Sept. 9, Tarot-Astrology cautioned that you might be tempted to let everyone know that there are two ways to do things: your way, or not at all. Think before you issue an ultimatum, especially if you’re coming from a place of jealousy. Ultimatums almost never work, and they usually create a big personal mess that needs to be mopped up later with tears if regret.

6. Harness The Energy Of Jupiter Sextile Pluto

Jupiter sextile Pluto is a major Virgo season 2018 planetary aspect happening Sept. 12, and it’s going to usher in powerful positive energy, which makes it an ideal time to work toward something that benefits the greater good. “A strong urge to reform something in your life will coincide with an opportunity to do just that. Go with the flow and take full advantage of the opportunities that open up in front of you,” Astrologer Jamie Partridge urged on Astrology King. “This should be a time of great satisfaction with your achievements. Your success should be accompanied by more influence and popularity.”

7. New Moon Intensifies Laws Of Attraction

Aside from Venus making it harder than usual to bite your tongue on Sept. 9, the Virgo season new moon on the same day will only increase the chances of self sabotage. Virgo season is kind of like walking a tightrope. On one side is a river of abundance and on the other a burning pit of lava. It’s going to take a great deal of mental self control to keep yourself from taking the low road and jumping into the lava pit. Don’t do it. This will only derail any progress you’ve made thus far, and you’ll have to start over again.

Darkstar Astrology advised on its website that it’s best to drink in moderation during this time as lowering your inhibitions could unleash some inner demons. While it’s also good to get rid of bad energy, releasing it now will most likely lead to a misdirection of your rage. Seriously, the past few months have been hard enough. Don’t make things more difficult for yourself than they need to be. The bottom line? During Virgo season, be good to others and the universe will be good to you.

Venus Through the Signs

By Aliza Kelly Faragher

Welcome, cosmic warriors. I’m astrologer Aliza Kelly Faragher, and this is Allure Astrology, a column dedicated to all things magick. Now, it’s time to light a few candles, lay out the rose petals, and blast some Barry White. Today, we’re talking all about Venus, the planet of love.

Interested in astrology? Most people begin their journey into the stars by way of looking into their unique birth chart). Also known as a “natal chart,” this illustrated graph is a two-dimensional representation of the three-dimensional solar system and corresponding zodiac. Calculated based on your date, time, and location of birth, the chart reveals the position of the planets, asteroids, stars, and celestial points at your exact moment of arrival. Your birth chart is a cosmic roadmap: It offers insight into the nuances of your personality and karmic lessons, as well as past, present, and future events. And when it comes to matters of the heart, your birth chart also illuminates romantic compatibilitywith others — that’s why we’ll be talking all about the planet Venus in this guide to the stars.

Venus Through The Signs

Venus’s mission is to give and get pleasure, or what the planet perceives as pleasure is dictated by its zodiac sign. Once you discover which sign Venus occupies for you (do this by calculating your natal chart), use these descriptions of Venus sign meanings as a jumping-off point for further exploration.

Aries Venus

Aries are strong and mighty warriors. Even Venus — the most sensual planet in the sky — is no match for the fiery energy of an Aries. When Venus occupies Aries, it thrives on competition: They simply love the chase. People with Aries Venus adore flirtatious romances that are defined by physical touch, exciting spontaneity, and (of course) some playful bickering to keep the flame burning.

Taurus Venus

Taurus is governed by Venus, so these combined energies blend harmoniously. As an earth sign, Taurus loves to indulge its five sense through luxurious fabrics, enchanting aromas, and gentle caresses. Although Taurus Venus’s are extremely romantic, they also know how to advocate for what they want. Taurus Venus needs a relationship that’s rooted in reality — if this sign feels unsupported, they will seek comfort elsewhere.

Gemini Venus

As an air sign, Gemini is all about communication. Likewise, a Gemini Venus is drawn to information like a moth to a flame. Expression is critical for the Gemini Venus soul, so those born under this chatty sky find pleasure when pursuing their curiosities. Moreover, since Gemini also is linked to local community, for Venus Gemini, there is often no distinction between friend and lover — in fact, Gemini Venus prefers the ambiguity. Hey, it’s more fun that way.

Cancer Venus

Cancer, symbolized by the crab, protects its soft interior with a tough exterior. In order for these celestial crustaceans to open up, they need to feel safe and secure. Accordingly, nothing is more rewarding to a Cancer Venus than building a relationship based on trust, loyalty, and protection. Just as the crab carries its domicile on its back, Cancer Venus is happiest when building a partnership that feels like home.

Leo Venus

Leo governs the heart, and fittingly, those born under the Leo Venus sky are true romantics. Regal and generous, Leo Venus loves to worship (and be worshiped by) their partners. This fiery Venus idealizes the concept of a “power couple” — after all, Venus Leo is constantly seeking its co-ruler. For Leo Venus, a partnership is personal, because they see it as a reflection of their own identity. So, when this sign feels rejected, proceed with caution, as lions can also be extremely ferocious.

Virgo Venus

Virgo Venus people love to problem-solve, and fittingly, seek a partnership that is based on reciprocity. Virgo’s earthy energy is practical and organized, so when fused with sensual Venus, this placement is wooed by thoughtful acts of service. Small and subtle gestures make Virgo Venus’s heart aflutter. For these sweet lovers, there is truly nothing more romantic than when their closest companion lends a helping hand.

Libra Venus

In addition to Taurus, Venus also governs Libra, so Venus is extremely comfortable working with Libra energy. However, while Taurus Venus is all about physical sensuality, Libra Venus is much more cerebral. Symbolized by the scales, Libra is obsessed with balance, harmony, and symmetry. Fittingly, Libra Venus people are total aesthetes. Those born with this placement love indulging their exquisite style and taste within their partnerships. Simply put, Libra Venus needs to be in a relationship that looks good.

Scorpio Venus

Scorpions are shadow dwellers, and similarly, celestial Scorpios derive their dynamic power from the unseen realms. When sensual Venus occupies this sign, it is enchanted by intense, mysterious, and karmic bonds. Scorpio Venus loves anything with a dash of danger, so those born under this elusive sky crave deep, erotic intimacy that illuminates from the inside.

Sagittarius Venus

Sagittarius is associated with travel, discovery, and philosophy. Fittingly, when the planet of love occupies this sign, Venus’s gaze shifts from romance to rodeos. People with Sagittarius Venus are drawn to explorers, nomads, and daredevils. Adventure is a huge turn-on for these fiery lovers, but nothing excites Sagittarius Venus more than a good sense of humor. Sagittarius Venus love to be entertained, so laughter will always be their number one aphrodisiac.

Capricorn Venus

Capricorn is the boss of the zodiac, and those with Capricorn Venus are always seeking their proverbial daddy. Although Venusian energy is tempered by Capricorn’s signature stoicism, this planet finds its erotic outlet by experimenting with power dynamics and role play. Because Capricorn abides by the “all work and no play” mantra, people born under the Capricorn Venus get off on pushing these limits.

Aquarius Venus

Aquarius energy is progressive, offbeat, and aloof. Accordingly, those who have Aquarius Venus find pleasure in nonconformity. In fact, for the Aquarius Venus lover, the ideal partnership cannot be defined, because Aquarius Venus refusesto describe their interpersonal bonds through societal conventions. Naturally, Aquarius Venus also gravitates towards eccentric, free-spirited, and rebellious individuals. When it comes to love, this Venusian placement lets its freak flag fly.

Pisces Venus

The last sign of the zodiac, the Pisces spirit is mystical and ethereal. Although Pisces energy can be hard to contain (after all, the ocean is boundless), Venus absolutely adores dwelling in this sign. In fact, Venus is considered “exalted” in Pisces, meaning that in this sign, Venus is functioning at its highest vibration. Pisces Venus finds beauty in absolutely everything and is particularly drawn to creative pursuits such as music and art. For these lovers, romance is deeply spiritual.

MERCURY RETROGRADE HOROSCOPES TO TAME YOUR INNER FIRE THIS JULY 2018

By Lee Coleman

Mercury Retrograde

As with all Mercury retrograde transits, including this latest one starting on July 26, 2018, you can expect setbacks, mishaps, and miscommunications, as well as running into old contacts, colleagues, and crushes (yikes).

Mercury in Leo is loud and proud. If Mercury normally deals best when in rational, objective signs, when in Leo, Mercury is instead entangled deep into our hearts, begging to express that which beats from within.

Read this now: Why Mercury Retrograde Isn’t ALL Bad and How to Prep for It 

At its highest and best, Mercury in Leo thinks and speaks with integrity, aware that there must always be a resonance between what we say and what we do. The only danger when Mercury is in Leo is coming off too brash, unable to realize when we’ve said too much and need to reign ourselves in.

 by Lee Coleman

KEY ASTROLOGICAL ASPECTS OF MERCURY RETROGRADE IN LEO 2018

 Key aspects made during the Mercury retrograde in Leo will lead us in two disparate directions. A series of squares to Jupiter in Scorpio are likely to lead us in the direction of over-optimistic, aggrandized thinking, which may ultimately leave us big on vision and scant on details. Much more helpfully, a series of trines to asteroid Vesta will focus our minds, enabling us to buckle down and do the research and legwork needed to succeed.

Mercury squares Jupiter in Scorpio July 9, August 10, and August 27; Mercury trines asteroid Vesta in Sagittarius July 21, July 31, and September 3.

 IMPORTANT DATES FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE IN LEO 2018

 On July 25, 2018, Mercury will station retrograde at 23°27′ of Leo, staying retrograde until August 18, when Mercury will station direct at 11°31′ of Leo. Though the effects are most potent between July 26 and August 19, the effects of the Mercury retrograde may start to emerge as early as July 8, when Mercury first enters its shadow period, and as late as September 1, when Mercury finally exits its shadow.

Mercury enters its shadow period: July 8

Mercury stations retrograde: July 25

Mercury retrograde conjunct the sun: August 8

Mercury stations direct: August 18

Mercury exits its shadow: September 1

WHAT ARE THE MOST AFFECTED SIGNS BY MERCURY RETROGRADE IN LEO?

  • Most intense for Leo, as the Mercury retrograde is occurring on your home turf, especially if you have planets or points in your natal chart around 8 to 26° of Leo
  • Most challenging for Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus, as difficult aspects across your signs may produce tensions
  • Most beneficial for Sagittarius and Aries, as you may find the workarounds productive in the long run

HOROSCOPES FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE IN LEO 2018

Read more to discover just how the Mercury retrograde in Leo may unfold for you.

ARIES (AND ARIES RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo occurring in your fifth house, you may be revisiting old lovers and fleshly pleasures – and deciding which ones are and are not to be carried forward. Returning to previous creative pursuits may be just the thing to carry you through this period, particularly if those projects have a spiritual, higher-minded bend.

TAURUS (AND TAURUS RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your fourth house, you’re likely to have your attention focused on your house, home life, and parents. While it may be a good time to refurb, it’s not the best (meaning easiest) time to move to a new house. There’s likely to be a plethora of chat between yourself and your partner; the deeper you go into the unsaid agreements between you, the better.

GEMINI (AND GEMINI RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your third house, you’ll need to review your correspondence and documents with a fine-toothed comb, as well as your relationships to siblings and extended family. Be careful about words in the workplace and lean on the advice of your most trusted partners if you’re ever unsure.

CANCER (AND CANCER RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your second house, your spending patterns are up for review, and there may even be changes or slip-ups in payments or cash exchanges. You are likely to feel ready by the retrograde’s end to change your relationship to certain splurge spending patterns, which will be well supported by changes you make in your work and in your daily grind.

LEO (AND LEO RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your first house, you may be overthinking the relationship between yourself and your home or family. For now, don’t assume that you have all the answers; for the moment, turn your attention towards your roots. Returning to a state of child-like enthusiasm and play will help you bide the time and remind you of what truly nurtures you.

VIRGO (AND VIRGO RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your twelfth house, taking some time out to retreat and reflect could be on the cards, particularly as it relates to the sanctity of your mind. Over-thinking, a common Virgo past time, could slow down during this transit. Restorative time spent with family or tucked away from the maddening crowds may be just the ticket for returning to inner balance.

LIBRA (AND LIBRA RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your eleventh house, it could be that you’re feeling a conflict of values between yourself and your crew, or that you might be over-evaluating the health of your financial future. Use the Mercury retrograde to refocus your efforts, leaving no stone unturned and no fine print unread before making any long-term decisions.

SCORPIO (AND SCORPIO RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your tenth house, career is likely to be a focus for you, both in what it adds to your life and how you’d like it to expand in the near future. The first important step will be to mitigate any overly optimistic thoughts and get down to brass tacks about where you’re headed. Focus on developing your talents, which will inevitably benefit your bottom line.

SAGITTARIUS (AND SAGITTARIUS RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your ninth house, matters of spirit and foreign people, places, and travel are all up for a grand review. You may feel as if you’re making grand jumps forward in your healing journey, growing leaps, and bounds. Your greatest enemy during this retrograde will be assuming you’ve got it all figured out. Your greatest ally? Opening yourself to further inspiration, assured that there is so much more to learn.

CAPRICORN (AND CAPRICORN RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your eighth house, you are likely to find yourself ruminating endlessly on where you are and where you wished you were – that essential gap between the present and our aspirations. Aim to reframe your thoughts about this situation by seeing how far you’ve already come. Growth will result by mining your psyche for self-limiting beliefs, and then banishing them.

AQUARIUS (AND AQUARIUS RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your seventh house, idealistic and possibly inflated discussions are likely to arise about career and partnerships. Dream big now, but leave the decision-making for later. Use this period to carefully redefine what it is you want to achieve in your partnerships, whether personal or professional, and then go about putting those changes in place.

PISCES (AND PISCES RISING)

With the Mercury retrograde in Leo happening in your sixth house, now is the time to revamp your daily routines (some of which need to go!) in favor of whatever brings you better health and serenity. Wait to confirm any major travel plans until after the retrograde. You’ll receive the most benefit from the retrograde by focusing on making small adjustments in daily tasks that will add up to big changes in your career over time.

This Is The Hardest Lesson That Each Zodiac Sign Is Going To Learn This Year

Via ZodiacCatalogs.Club

Astrology Life Lessons

Aries
(March 21st to April 19th)

You can’t plan for, or anticipate, every single thing in your life. The more that you keep trying to plan every element of the foreseeable future, set super specific goals, and decide exactly what you think you want, the more you are actually setting yourself up to be disappointed and “fail.” The thing is: you have to learn to be comfortable in the present moment, and you have to understand that just because something doesn’t turn out exactly as you thought doesn’t mean it’s bad or wrong. You have to let go of control to welcome in some magical possibility this year.

Taurus
(April 20th to May 21st)

You can’t fake how you really feel. You can edit your photos, you can write funny posts and send light hearted texts to every friend you’ve been meaning to catch up with, you can make your professional website so streamlined that altogether, it seems to create the image that you’re happy and fulfilled. This year, you’re going to learn that you can fool the eyes, you can trick the mind, but you cannot deceive the heart. No amount of beauty, wealth or popularity will make you happy… the longer you believe it will, the more precious time you waste.

Gemini
(May 22nd to June 21st)

As an inherently social creature, your life revolves around your relationships. The one that you haven’t focused enough on, though, is the relationship you have with yourself. This year is going to be about pressing boundaries, speaking your mind, taking risks, and not sitting around waiting for someone else to make the important moves that you’ve been dreaming of. You’re going to learn to love yourself again this year, but first, you’re going to have to realize you’re the only one who can save yourself.

Cancer
(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Big changes are on the horizon of your life, and that means you have to ask yourself a question: Is this the person you wanted to be? Are you proud of the person who might show up on the biggest days of your life? If the answer is in any way no, it means it’s time to get to work. You’ve delayed maturity for far too long. No more “sniffing at every distraction,” as they say. It’s time to get serious, and make big, lasting change. This time next year, you’ll be floored and thrilled with how much you’ve been able to heal and achieve.

Leo
(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Just because you loved someone doesn’t mean that you were meant to be with them. The same is true of every job, friendship and piece of clothing that you thought you liked but ultimately didn’t work out. Your feelings can deceive you at times, and this year, it’s going to be about learning to use your head a little more. What’s right for you will be obvious to you logically, you won’t have to justify it, beg for it, or chase it forever.

Virgo
(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You may have had a dream that you were trying to make manifest over the past few years, and learned that the virtue of wanting something badly enough does not necessarily qualify you to have it. You’ve had to get more realistic about what you can and cannot do. You’ve had to take a big old slice of humble pie. That’s okay, though, because the revelations you have from recognizing your limitations will ultimately free you, and set you on a path that feels even better than you could imagine right now.

Libra
(September 23rd to October 22nd)

This is going to be an amazing year for you, not only because your life is going to radically change in some of the best ways possible (you’ll finally be reaping all of the benefits of that year-long Jupiter transit you’re coming off of) but because it is a time for deep healing. No longer will you be accepting surface-level solutions. Life can’t just look good. It needs to feel right. You’re going to work all year to finally resolve issues that you’ve been carrying since you were a teen. The bad news is that there will be a lot of time you have to spend feeling the feelings you have been drinking, eating, shopping and distracting yourself from for years. The good news is once you do, you’ll be free.

Scorpio
(October 23rd to November 22nd)

The name of the game this year is trust. You’ve built so much of your habits and your personality around trying to be hyper in control of everything that happens in your life, which is ultimately just a way to try to control what you do and don’t feel. Of course, this isn’t sustainable, so, it’s failed. This year, it’s going to be about letting go a bit. Trusting that the right partner, the right work, the right path will reveal itself to you when it is time.

Sagittarius
(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’re going to have to be honest with yourself this year about whether or not you’re really achieving that which you know you are capable of. Most likely, the answer is no. You have much more that you need to do, but you are the one standing in your own way right now. You need to sober up (perhaps literally) and get real about what your goals are, and how you want to live. The clock is ticking, and you don’t have forever. May that motivate you to do what you came here to do while you still have the opportunity to do it.

Capricorn
(December 22nd to January 20th)

This year is going to be about unexpected change, which you are going to be very resistant to for as long as you possibly can be. Because the thing about “unexpected” change is that you’ve known it was coming for a long time, eventually, you just come to terms with it. You know if your job isn’t working, if your relationship status is making you miserable, if you aren’t connecting with friends enough. You know what the problem is. You just have to admit it so that you can start changing it. Now is the time.

Aquarius
(January 21st to February 18th)

Things are changing outside of you this year. The challenge that will be presented is that though you finally feel like you’ve hit your personal stride, your business, family or workplace as you know it is in for a serious transformation. What you will have to learn this year is adaptation. Rather than fearing the worst, respond with creativity and ambition. The question is not: “Are we done for?” The question is: “Then what will we do next?”

Pisces
(February 19th to March 20th)

This is the year for you to return to your roots. You’ve spent so long on the run (whether literally or maybe just emotionally). A lot of the “adventure” you’ve sought has really been about disconnection. You weren’t comfortable enough to address the issues that plagued you back home. You’ve gotten enough time away, and it’s time to start coming back. The life that you really want, the existence that you’ve always dreamt of, is waiting for you if you have enough courage to choose it.

The Basics of Numerology: How to Calculate Your Life Path and Destiny Numbers

By Aliza Kelly Faragher for Allure Astrology

Have you ever found yourself gazing at the clock at exactly 11:11? Wondering why you so frequently meet people born on the same day of the month? Or why your lucky number turns up in the most unexpected places? The answers you seek, cosmic warrior, are embedded within the the esoteric powers of digits. Numerology is the mystical study of — you guessed it — numbers.

Just as astrology the planets and zodiac signs are connected to specific attributes within astrology, according to the teachings of numerology, certain numbers are associated with specific traits or themes. These numbers are used to offer insight on personality, future events, and even life’s greater purpose.

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

The easiest way to start working with numerology is by analyzing your unique date of birth. Numerology is all about getting to the root number. To do this, you simply reduce digits until you reach a single-digit number, excluding 11 and 22, which are considered Master Numbers (more on this later). This single digit is your individual Life Path Number.

The Life Path Number is similar to your astrological sun sign: It reveals your greater purpose, including strengths, weaknesses, talents, and ambitions. Your Life Path Number also exposes the tone of your experiences, and why events occur past, present, and future. Simply put, it’s the method to the madness.

Let’s say your birthday is December 15, 1992. To calculate your Life Path Number, you will reduce each component of this date to a single digit:

The month, 12, is reduced to 1 + 2 = 3.

The date, 14, is reduced to 1 + 5 = 6.

The year, 1992, is reduced to 1 + 9 + 9 + 2. This equal 21. Then, 21 is reduced to2 + 1 = 3.

Then, we add the reduced month, date, and year numbers (3 + 6 + 3) and arrive at 12. Finally, we add 1 + 2, and reach 3. If you were born on December 15, 1992, your Life Path Number is 3. It may seem daunting at first, but once you see it all written out this way, it becomes far less intimidating, no?

Master Numbers

As mentioned above, the only time you would not reduce the final number is if you attain 11 or 22. These are considered Master Numbers and connote a more intensified version of their root numbers (2 and 4, respectively). Master Numbers suggest a high degree for learning, achievement, or success, but likely in a more stressful or high-pressure environment.

For instance, Sir Paul McCartney, perhaps England’s most famous Gemini, was born on June 18, 1942. When this date is reduced (month = 6, day = 9, year = 7), the sum is 22. Rather than simplify this to a single digit (yielding 4), the number 22 reflects the Master Number — the higher-octane iteration of 4, revealing McCartney’s strong “life mission.”

Converting Letters to Find Your Destiny Number

You can also use numerology to derive the root number of names or words — this is where our ancient buddy Pythagoras lends a hand. According to his theories, certain letters have specific numerical values, which are as follows:

1 = A, J, S

2 = B, K, T

3 = C, L, U

4 = D, M, V

5 = E, N, W

6 = F, O, X

7 = G, P, Y

8 = H, Q, Z

9 = I, R

Using this technique, it’s easy to find the root number associated with names, which numerologists refer to as your Destiny Number. To find your Destiny Number, calculate the root number of your full name (first, middle, last) by reducing each name to a single digit, and adding up the total.

For example, my full name reveals my Destiny Number: ALIZA (1 + 3 + 9 + 8 + 1 = 22, which becomes 2 + 2 = 4) KELLY (2 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 7 = 20, which becomes 2 + 0 = 2) FARAGHER (6 + 1 + 9 + 1 + 7 + 8 + 5 + 9 = 46, which becomes 4 + 6 = 10, then finally, 1 + 0 = 1), resulting in a Destiny Number of 7 (because 4 + 2 + 1 = 7).

Whereas your Life Path reveals your greater purpose, your Destiny Number offers insight as to how you will express your greater goals. So, as a Life Path 8 person, my mission is to cultivate abundance, and I will express this through my Destiny Number 7: analysis, research, and critical observation. Sounds about right.

Number Interpretations

So, now that you’ve calculated your Life Path Number and Destiny Number, it’s time to find out what these digits really mean. Let’s dig in.

Number 1 (10/1, 19/1)

Just as Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, is about action and initiation, in numerology, 1 is linked to forward motion. 1 symbolizes a pioneering spirit, independent nature, and innate leadership capabilities. On a bad day, 1 can be be a bit bossy or boastful, hiding any insecurities behind an over-developed self-importance. 1 must remember that although it is first, it can very quickly become the loneliest number. Even the most autonomous 1s need the support of their friends, family, and lovers.

Number 2 (11/2, 20/2)

2 is linked to sensitivity, balance, and harmony. Within numerology, the 2 vibration assumes the role of the mediator, creating harmony by bringing together dissonant forces through compassion, empathy, and kindness. 2 is linked to psychic abilities and intuition, and if this number appears as a Life Path or Destiny Number, the individual will be astute to subtle energy shifts and emotional nuances. Because 2 is so sensitive, it is very conflict averse, and can end up feeling under-appreciated or unacknowledged. 2 must avoid seeking external validation and, instead, realize that perfect equilibrium needed already exists within.

Number 3 (12/3, 21/3)

Communication is paramount for 3. Symbolically, 3 represents the output of two joined forces: It is the essence of creation. 3 is highly gifted at expression, seamlessly sharing innovative and pioneering concepts through art, writing, and oration. Your work inspires, motivates, and uplifts others, and 3 finds great joy making others smile. However, 3 is also known to be quite moody, and if 3 feels misunderstood, may withdraw entirely. The escapist tendencies of 3 are easily mitigated by practicing peaceful mindfulness: With such an active imagination, it’s important for 3 to find moments of quiet to reset, restore, and recharge.

Number 4 (13/4, 22/4, 31/4)

In numerology, 4 has an earthy-energy and is centered around fortifying its roots. 4 adamantly believes in the physical world, and knows that investing in a solid infrastructure is necessary for building a lasting legacy. Practical, hardworking, and responsible, the 4 vibration is focused on creating logical systems that can support scalable growth. There is a solidity to 4, however, that can quickly devolve into rigidity; 4 must remember that rules are meant to enhance, not inhibit. It’s easy for 4 to become stubborn, so 4 benefits from learning to loosen up and think outside-the-box. 4 will feel liberated and inspired by finding the bravery to take a few bold risks.

Number 5 (14/5, 23/5, 32/5)

Free-thinking, adventurous, and progressive, 5 is defined by freedom. 5 needs to experience the world by engaging its five senses: For 5, life lessons are acquired through spontaneous acts of bravery. Akin to Sagittarius energy within astrology, 5 is known for its playful, impuslive, and vivacious spirit. But on the other side of its signature joie de vivre, 5 can become restless and impatient. Since 5 is always seeking discovery, it has a difficult time accepting life’s day-to-day responsibilities — including professional and interpersonal commitments. 5 must remember that when it narrows its gaze, it will discover that the most rewarding exploration exists in its own backyard.

Number 6 (15/6, 24/6, 33/6)

6 is recognized for its nurturing, supportive, and empathic nature. A true healer, 6 has the ability to problem solve in both the emotional and physical realms, helping others through its straightforward, yet gentle, approach. 6 has a strong sense of responsibility, and cares deeply for its friends, family, and lovers. This number also can easily communicate with children and animals, displaying a soft tenderness and caretaker spirit. But not everything needs to be parented, and sometimes 6’s protective energy can become domineering and controlling. To avoid carrying the world on its shoulders, 6 must learn to build trust and understanding for others: Simply put, everyone must follow their own unique path.

Number 7 (16/7, 25/7, 34/7)

The detectives of numerology, 7 is known for its investigative abilities and analytical skills. Astrologically, the number 7 can be thought of as a blend of Virgo and Scorpio energy: 7 is extremely detail-oriented, but is driven by inner-wisdom as oppossed to tangible realities. 7 has a keen eye, and its astute observations fuel a quick-witted, inventive spirit. Because it can quickly find the flaws in almost any system, 7 is a bit of a perfectionist. 7 will often assume fault, so it’s important for this number to counterbalance its inherent skepticism with an open mind. Not everything will be foolproof — but that’s what makes life fun.

Number 8 (17/8, 26/8, 35/8)

8 is all about abundance. Within numerology, this number is linked to material wealth and financial success. Ambitious and goal-oriented, 8 can effortlessly assume leadership positions through its natural magnetism. 8 applies big-picture thinking to broaden its scope, racing up the top of any ladder to reach extraordinary heights. But with great power comes great responsibility: 8 breeds workaholics, and on a bad day, can become excessively controlling and possessive. However, its negative qualities can be lessen by giving back to the community. By using is success to help others, 8 realizes that there is nothing more valuable than contributing to the greater good.

Number 9 (18/9, 27/9, 36/9)

As the final single digit within numerology, 9 connotes an old soul. 9 is no stranger life’s ups-and-downs of life — been there, done that. Accordingly, 9 can effortlessly synthesize large quantities of stimuli, psychically connecting the dots to form a cohesive whole. The mission for 9 is to reach its highest state of consciousness, and to help others also achieve this spiritual awareness. 9 isn’t afraid to transform, and its malleable spirit inspires others to explore their own ranges of motion. Since 9, in many ways, has transcended the physical plane, it must constantly remember to anchor itself. 9 must learn to balance the abstract with the tangible, ultimately finding its place at the intersection of fantasy and reality.

Master Number 11 (11/2)

Master Number 11 revs up the energy of Number 2; its purpose is to heal self and other through its elevated psychic abilities. Often times, Master Number 11’s intuitive gifts are a result of extreme life circumstances: Master Number 11 has no choice but to cultivate extrasensory talents. In numerology, Master Number 11 is connected to spiritual enlightenment, awareness, and philosophical balance.

Master Number 22 (22/4)

Master Number 22, often referred to as the Master Builder, expands on the vibrations of Number 4. Master Number 22 is inspired to create platforms in the physical realm that transcend immediate realities — by fusing the tangible and intangible, Master Number 22 cultivates a dynamic long-term legacy. Master Number 22’s skills are usually a byproduct of early childhood instability that fuels innovative thought. Industrious, creative, and dependable, Master Number 22 is always on a mission to transform.

7 Signs That Affect Your Astrological Compatibility

BY SARAH PENIX, OHIO UNIVERSITY

Astrological Compatibility

Check out these astrological signs before your next date.

Although sun sign compatibility is often the first step for beginning astrologers to figure out how like-minded they are with a love interest, there are much more influential astrological placements that help determine astrological compatibility.

First, you have to calculate the two peoples’ birth charts by figuring out the exact time and location of their births. You can do that on a variety of websites, but one of my favorite resources for beginners is cafe astrology, because it not only calculates birth charts for free, it also has copious amounts of articles about different planets and placements.

The website is a perfect place to begin to understand the complexities of astrology because it has easy-to-use resources for beginners, publishes articles specific to particular aspects within astrology and explains the multifaceted roles of each planet and house.

For each individual, the planets were positioned in a unique sequence at the time they were born. Your birth chart tells you the position of each planet — meaning what sign that planet is in – and what sign each of the 12 houses are in. Astrological houses represent different areas of life and are highlighted through transits and aspects.

Aspects are the manner in which your placements interact with each other, while transits are how those placements relate to how the planets are positioned at any time related to the zodiac.

I have ranked seven planets in terms of importance for determining romantic astrological compatibility.

Venus

As you might imagine, Venus rules love and romance. It represents peoples’ value, what they find pleasure in and compatibility. It can help determine happiness in relationships.

In determining unity, Venus’ placements are of vital importance because it can help you understand what your partner wants in a relationship.

Mars

Mars is the planet of energy and desire in astrology. It rules sexual desires and survival instincts. The red planet is the second most important placement on my list because Mars and Venus are almost dependent on each other in order to understand a person’s romantic and physical needs.

Although Mars is often associated with sexuality, it also helps determine drive in other areas of life. Mars’ compatibility speaks to the ways in which partners’ energies relate, based on which aspects are present.

Rising/Ascendant

A person’s rising sign represents how they present themselves to the world. Because relationships are often built on first impressions, that initial attraction can be determined by how compatible two peoples’ rising signs are.

Although relationships tend to be much deeper than the mask a person puts on for the outside world, to get to that point there must initially be a degree of understanding.

Moon

Your moon sign is the reality you live in. This astrological placement is how you express your unconscious personality. Moon signs are said to be what people keep hidden from the outside world and because of that, it is the vulnerability that only the people closest to you, such as your partner, experience.

Moon sign compatibility helps determine if you and your partner are comfortable on an instinctive and emotional level. The sign hones in on what people are comfortable or uncomfortable within their daily lives and speaks to how a person processes and reacts to emotions.

Sun

Sun sign placements represent the ego and how individuals express it. It is referred to as the “key to full self-expression” by Astrologist Jan Spiller because an individual’s sun sign signifies from where they draw their power from, how they exhibit creativity and their leadership style. The sun symbolizes your higher self. It is important to your daily compatibility primarily because egos can play an important role in human interaction.

Sun sign compatibility can show how a couple can work together at their highest level of self. However, by only examining the unifying sun sign is limiting because it does not take into accounts all other areas of someone’s personality. To fully understand the role of sun signs in astrological compatibility, someone must first understand the other ruling planets in their partner’s birth chart and how their chart compares to their significant others.

Jupiter

Jupiter is the planet of social opportunity and perspective. A person’s Jupiter placement shows how they find faith in themselves and others, build trust and find personal value. It plays a role in astrological compatibility because Jupiter represents tolerance, generosity and where you find joy in life.

In terms of relationship harmony, Jupiter can help you understand which areas of life will be easiest and where conflict could arise. Jupiter’s significance is exalted when linked with other placements. However, because Jupiter represents luck and optimism, compatibility between Jupiter and other planets such as Mars, Venus and Moon signs can be telling to how a relationship will endure over time and how a partner can influence your mood.

Saturn

Saturn is the most powerful planet in the solar system because it rules over karmic energy. However, it is also one of the most misunderstood planets. It represents time, order and judgment regarding right and wrong. Saturn’s placements speak to a person’s sense of responsibility, their greatest fears and desires, their social obligations and the purpose or direction in their life.

Because Saturn rules over karma when comparing two individual’s birth charts, it is an important part of helping to determine long-lasting relationships. If a couple’s Saturn signs are compatible, they are more likely to have a relationship with solid foundations and resiliency, whereas incompatible placements can lead to restrictiveness in a relationship.

In determining compatibility, knowing the placements of your partner is essential. However, this unity is ultimately determined by the aspects of the relationship, meaning how placements interact in relation to each other and to what degree they conjunct.

Astrologers look at each person’s sign and house placements of each planet and compare them using aspects. In order to determine astrological compatibility, it is integral to examine how partners’ placements relate. My favorite holistic resource for comparing charts for harmony in relationships is on astro-seek.

Ultimately, compatibility is a complex comparison between two people’s charts, and varying aspects between them can play varying roles in how planets impact the relationship.
