You've just met someone and you're trying to plan a date that they'll love. Maybe their Sun sign can help give some clues:
The perfect date for an ARIES: No matter what, nothing sitting still. Something where you're moving, active. They love red, so if you're female, wear a red dress, and if you're male, bring red roses. Make sure you're not in one place for too long. Keep topics and the date light.
The perfect date for a TAURUS: Taurus is easy since they love food, so going to a restaurant is just fine. Find out their favorite food/restaurant. Maybe only order off the dessert menu. Pampering them works too, so try the spa. Keep their senses constantly engaged.
The perfect date for a GEMINI: You can sit the whole date as long as you're talking the whole date. Bring them somewhere you can show off your intellectual prowess, and then somewhere they can show off theirs. Keep the mental stimulation going.
The perfect date for a CANCER: Plan something romantic at home or in a really comfortable setting. Don't put on a lot of pressure and let them ease out of their shell in their time. Mood lighting works well. Keep out of action-packed ideas.
The perfect date for a LEO: Leo rules drama - take them to a movie or play. Don't forget your funny bone and make sure there's lots of laughs. Compliment them. Treat them like royalty. Keep them feeling important and the date grand in some way.
The perfect date for a VIRGO: Nothing too flashy, over-the-top, romantic, or physical, unless it's to the gym. Make sure the food is nutritious. Virgo is insecure, so don't have a wandering eye. Keep trying to find what unwinds them.
The perfect date for a LIBRA: Take them to the hottest, coolest place in town. Libra is social and trendy, so make sure the other people around are in with the in crowd, and you better make sure you look good. Well-groomed and stylish clothes only. Keep from saying anything inappropriate.
The perfect date for a SCORPIO: Go somewhere dark and dress sexy. Stare into their eyes intensely and hang onto every word they say. Be mysterious. Leave them wanting more. And no day dates, nights only. Keep the mood intense.
The perfect date for a SAGITTARIUS: If you can stand the outdoors, do something outside. Go for a hike, walk on the beach, plan a picnic. Don't do the TMI thing or talk about how much you want babies. Keep yourself at a slight distance so they don't feel like you're trapping them.
The perfect date for a CAPRICORN: Something traditional, old-fashioned. The guy picks up the girl, holds open the door, pulls out the chair, stands when she leaves to "powder her nose." Keep the first kiss chaste - no trashiness!
The perfect date for an AQUARIUS: Something unconventional, different. Nothing stuffy and no rules. And no fancy clothes. Maybe glow-in-the-dark bowling. A group date could work too. Keep them aware of your future dreams and how involved you are in causes.
The perfect date for a PISCES: Pisces is the eternal romantic. Flowers, chocolates, candlelight dinner, soft music. Music's important, it helps Pisces mood. Maybe a jazz club or concert. Keep the date and your tone sweeter than sugar.
Our birthdays are the day we're born, but our astrological birthday is when the transit (moving) Sun returns to the exact same position it was at when we were born, and happens the day before, day of, or day after our birth date. It's called a Solar Return.
In astrology, it's believed that your solar return and what happens to you for 24 hours afterwards can show what will happen to you over the next year of your life. Every two hours is equal to one month of your life, and it can be interesting to see how what happens in the 24 hours links to the next 12 months. The hours you're sleeping usually show the months that are the calmest or most uneventful, and the hours you're awake show the months when things will be happening.
I've noticed that if I ever sneeze or cough or hit my arm or something like that, the days associated with that time are days I'll be sick. The time when I'm exercising shows the period of the year I'll be most focused on my health. Keep track of what's happening for 24 hours starting at the time of your Solar Return (you can generate a Solar Return chart for free on astro.com). See how it manifests for you!
The SUN and MOON are the 2 most important parts of your ASTROLOGICAL self. The Sun rules your INNER self, your EGO, who you are to those who know you BEST. The Moon rules your EMOTIONS, how you emotionally REACT and what you need to feel emotionally SECURE. The Sun is VITALITY, SHINING a LIGHT wherever it is; the Moon is SENSITIVE, bringing out the FEELINGS of a situation. The Sun rules LEO; the Moon rules CANCER.
VENUS is WOMEN and LOVE, MARS is MEN and SEX, right? Well, not exactly! Venus is your FEMININE side, and Mars is your MASCULINE side. Venus rules what you’d like in love relationships and in a PARTNER. Mars doesn’t exactly rule sex, but rather what DRIVES you in life. Mars is ENERGY and FOCUS, while Venus is more at EASE. Mars rules ARIES; Venus rules TAURUS and LIBRA.
JUPITER and SATURN are 2 sides of the same coin; Jupiter EXPANDS, Saturn CONTRACTS, Jupiter’s OPTIMISM, Saturn’s PESSIMISM, Jupiter’s LIGHTER, Saturn’s DARKER. Jupiter can be bad if it INDULGES too much or is LAZY; Saturn can be bad with all WORK and no PLAY. Jupiter is meant to be CAREFREE, while Saturn is meant to TEACH lessons. Jupiter rules SAGITTARIUS; Saturn rules CAPRICORN.
URANUS is the higher octave of MERCURY. Mercury rules COMMUNICATIONS; Uranus rules TECHNOLOGY. Mercury is MENTAL, ruling your COMMUNICATING style and how you LEARN, while Uranus rules the ERRATIC, UNPREDICATBLE, DIFFERENT, and NEW. They can both bring things on SUDDENLY, and their energies are CONTINUOUS. Uranus rules AQUARIUS; Mercury rules GEMINI and VIRGO.
NEPTUNE and PLUTO are the slowest-moving planets, and have a big effect on us. Neptune DISSOLVES, Pluto TRANSFORMS. Neptune rules ILLUSIONS, DECEPTION, DREAMS, and IMAGINATION. Pluto rules POWER, CONTROL, and DEPTH. They can each bring DIFFICULTIES, with Pluto especially having a reputation as a DESTROYER, but both just want PROFOUND change. Neptune rules PISCES; Pluto rules SCORPIO.
I just saw this story today (yeah, I'm late for every party) and thought it was pretty interesting and pretty funny! For those who are late to the party too, it's a study done that shows what types of careers people are more likely to have based on their birth order, whether or not they have siblings, and astrological sign. Obviously all three will have an impact on your experiences and personality, so why not your profession?
I'm a first born child and a Libra Sun. According to this, a first born child is more likely to earn six figures and hold a C-level position (what is C-level? good thing I'm not in the corporate world!); those with siblings are more likely to enjoy their work (probably because of the competition); first born children are more drawn to government positions and science (so we can tell everyone what to do); Libras are more satisfied with their jobs (because even if we don't like it, we'll sleep with our boss and make it better); and Libras are more likely to go into engineering, machine operation (little me?), healthcare (I'm a germaphobe), art/design/architecture (actually I did consider studying architecture for some time), finance (because we love to buy stuff), and education (because we know more than you).
Do you feel your profession matches your sign and birth order?
We all read about how Venus is love, Mars is sex, the Moon is emotional needs, and so on, but they're all about telling you the kinds of traits you should look for in a mate rather than the actual zodiac signs you'll like. These 3 placements can show the actual signs you like and attract to you.
Jupiter is the happy planet, and it shows areas of life we have the easiest (and sometimes luckiest) times with. Your Jupiter sign can also tell you one of the signs you'll like most. This applies not only to Sun sign, but anyone with an Aquarius personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars). With rising signs, I've found that you may actually like the opposite sign rising because then their 7th house is in your Jupiter sign, putting Jupiter on the house cusp or in the house. The 7th house rules our relationships. Jupiter in play helps you to genuinely like the other person.
The Sun-Moon midpoint is the exact middle between your Sun and Moon. It shows how we integrate our ego (Sun) with our emotions (Moon), and how we feel most "whole." So it makes sense we'd be attracted to the sign of our Sun-Moon midpoint, because their qualities are ones we want in our own lives (because their qualities integrate our Sun and Moon). The Sun-Moon midpoint can be a sensitive point, so anyone who triggers it for you can activate the energy.
Your North Node is one of the lunar nodes, on an axis with the South Node. The North Node is a spiritual point, showing the attributes you should aspire to integrate into your life to further yourself as a person. If someone's Sun or other personal planet is in the sign of your North Node, they're pulling you forward in this life, forcing you to grow. If you're not ready, it's an unsettling experience. If you are ready, they're the best relationships you'll have. No matter what, you can't go into things with someone who hits your North Node lightly.
RECAP: Find those who have a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) or Rising/7th house in your Jupiter sign, Sun-Moon midpoint sign, or North Node sign
Read on to see what's in the air for you astrologically with a weekly horoscope for September 25th - October 1st. It's recommended you read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and Rising sign (or if you have a late Rising, the sign after). General horoscopes are always meant for entertainment purposes only. Note: This is the last weekly horoscope; monthly horoscopes begin now with October.
Aries: The 27th keeps you emotionally at ease, and the 29th could be a day of lots of conversations with people, lots of emails and such, though you may not feel the best. Your vitality may be strong the 30th, and you may feel good emotionally on the 1st.
Taurus: Everything may be good in your world, or at least feel that way on the 28th. The 29th could be a day where you get a lot of work done and can execute plans well, so any chores you have, plan for then. The 29th and 30th could put the focus squarely on other people and their lives/problems/needs.
Gemini: Watch that you don't say anything you shouldn't around the 27th. You could also have something come up unexpectedly that you're not too thrilled about. The 28th could bring power struggles and control issues. The 29th may have your energy riding high.
Cancer: The 27th could be a communications day, and if there's anything you need to say, say it then. The new moon on the 27th could put more emphasis on your communications, especially in regard to your home/family. The 28th may be a day where you need to behave responsibly and be mature.
Leo: You may not like something that comes up out of nowhere on the 25th, or feel restless and agitated. The 28th could bring problems with someone trying to control you or you them. The 30th brings a good amount of energy and strength.
Virgo: The Moon travels through your sign the 25th and 26th, so you'll be more in touch with your emotions and feel more at ease with them, and possibly more at ease all around. If you need to figure out how you feel about something, this is the best period for it.
Libra: Mercury enters your sign the 25th, so Librans will experience a lot more communicating going on in their lives. The Moon enters your sign the 27th and remains through the 28th, and the new moon the 27th is in your sign, so your emotions will be center stage those two days, and you could be presented with a new opportunity and feel like you've got the world in the palm of your hand.
Scorpio: The 28th could be a problem day, with you not feeling like you have enough vigor or energy, and with a lot of fighting or miscommunication with people. It could get better the 29th, with positive emotions and less uneasiness.
Sagittarius: You may be emotionally sound the 25th, but have something out of your control disrupt things the 29th. The Moon enters Sagittarius, your sign, on the 1st, so you'll start the month of October on the right foot.
Capricorn: The 27th and 28th could be all about your career and life path, very Capricorn. The 29th turns to love and pleasantries, and could be a good night for a date and some romance. You can detach from your Blackberry for one night and survive!
Aquarius: Your vitality may be low on the 25th, or your energy may be all over the place and scattered. The 27th could bring an argument with someone or problem with an electronic. The 1st could be a positive day emotionally.
Pisces: The 25th and 27th puts the Moon in Virgo, your opposing sign, so your emotions may seem a little wonky. This also puts more emphasis on other people rather than yourself, so don't get too grumpy about the lack of attention. You could feel better the 28th.
