Venus into Taurus

Venus moves into lusty Taurus for a month-long stay, June 6 – July 4, 2017. This is not the Venus we associate with love and marriage. This is not Venus, the love goddess.

Waning Moon in Virgo

In the Moon’s waning phase, Virgo can be the world’s best assistant at deciding exactly what needs to be reduced or released. Her powers of discrimination and ability to hone in on flaws can be a real boon in helping us decide whether to keep something or to finally let it go.
