Capricorn June 2021

Read more about Capricorn in general.


Love

At the start of the month Venus enters your partnership area to bring beautiful things into your relationships.

Midmonth Mars swoops into your intimate sector, and this is likely to spice things up quite a bit in the bedroom.

The spotlight shifts onto your main personal relationships at the solstice around June 21st which is a powerful point in the year.

Now you can expect more warmth, light and love between you.

Finally on June 27th, your private life will improve as positive celestial energy is being brought to bear on the most intimate parts of your life.

If you are single, June will offer you select opportunities to find quality romantic partners.

This is not to say that you will find the love of your life, but you will be exposed to several people who are potential lovers for you.

If you are already in a happy and meaningful relationship, this is the month to reach out and rekindle the early love you once had.

Robust relationships will go from strength to strength during this time frame.

 





Creativity

You may receive challenges in your creative life this month that stem from money issues.

It is likely that you will have to compromise your creative expression due to financial constraints.

This may simply be that you do not have the cash to buy the new paints, yarns or the craft materials that you require or, if you are a commercial artist, you may feel obliged to take a lesser commission from a potential buyer for an artwork that you are forced to negotiate down to retain the sale.

Anticipate these days as a passing phase, but they may give you pause for thought about the value you place on your creative projects

Money

This month you are likely to feel under pressure financially from your wild lifestyle.

Your planetary ruler, Saturn, is in a tense relationship with the hooligan planet Uranus.

If you have been financially savvy in the past, you may find yourself splurging on games and fun tech gear.

However, if you do not have a grip on your finances, this month may bring more challenges surrounding money for you.

Be on the alert to sudden urges to make online purchases for stuff you don’t need.

Wellbeing

This month you have the opportunity for a restart in your physical and mental well-being as the solar eclipse on June 10th stimulates your health zone.

Around Tuesday the 22nd, anticipate that your self-care and wellness regime will start to work better for you.

If necessary, discuss your wellbeing plans with someone who can help you.

This is a brilliant time to reach out and engage a trainer or nutritional to look over what you are doing.

Vision

Capricorns usually have a vision for their life mapped out from when they are very young.

But there is no harm in making some tweaks.

If this is your plan, the best days for you to do fine-tune your world domination strategy will be on the Wednesday, 16th and Thursday, 17th of June.

On these couple of days, Luna will stimulate your vision sector, so you can make a deep emotional connection with your life plan which will sustain you through difficult days ahead.

Wellbeing

This is an easy-going month for your well-being and positive outlook.

The first two weeks of the month will be especially buoyant, but after the 20th as Jupiter begins its retrograde cycle, your inherent energy may slow you down a little bit.

This is an indication that you need to refocus your self-care and only practice meditation, yoga or simple stretches that suit you.

Do not feel the need to push through the pain for your wellbeing now.





Love

Early in the month the love planets Venus enters your intimate area to bring deep love and romance to your private life.

Additionally, any serious partnerships you have with someone special will get a restart at the solar eclipse on June 10th which stimulates all meaningful relationships.

And finally, in the last week of June, powerful celestial energy shifts to bring focus to your intimate life.

Communications will come easier in your committed relationships towards the end of the month.

Any confusion or misunderstandings that you have had between the pair of you will be overcome now.

It is likely that you will hear good news from your partner although there is the possibility that what they have to say you really don’t want to hear.

Creativity

The best days for you to come to tap into your creativity this month or in the first week around the third and fourth of June this will be when Luna will stimulate your creative area and you are likely to express your inner feelings out in your creative works.

Choose to let your natural creativity flow either through dance, music, poetry or practising contour artworks in your sketchbook.

This is not the time to finalize any artistic projects, but it is a time to go deeper and explore combinations of colours, sounds or words that appeal to you.

Money

Your money situation will be steady for most of the month.

If you honestly want to get to grips with where your cash is going, pay close attention to what happens at the Capricorn Full Moon on June 24th as it will illuminate your financial sector.

You may have been under an illusion about where your money is disappearing, but after the Full Moon you will have the opportunity to understand how your money flows in reality.

Vision

Mars enters your vision sector on June 11th which marks the beginning of a new plan for your life.

You perhaps will meet a woman who could change your perspective on how you are living.

Any shifts in attitude might take a little longer than you originally think they should, but this is the time when you gain insights that will benefit you later.

Try to be as social as you can to expose yourself to other people’s positive viewpoints.

Realize that there may be shift in attitude or approach that you can make to attract into your life people and situation which will benefit you.

Creativity

All Gemini’s have a fine contact into their creative vibes on the weekend of the 18th, 19th and 20th of June.

This will be an opportune time to attend an art retreat or a music practice.

You will be surprised at what you can create during this short period.

What are you do have to decide is whether or not you can accept any habits, quirks or perceived flaws in your intimate partner.

Vision

There are two celestial energies that are causing strain for you in your vision sector and your private life.

If you are feeling slightly unconfident, you might wake up to find yourself between a rock and a hard place.

Take a deep breath and know that this too shall pass.

On the other hand, if you are trying to find a new way to live, perhaps through minimalism or vegetarianism, or other practices that will improve your life, there will be some road blocks this month.

Do not give in to the pressure to conform, rather use this time to build a solid foundation and vision for your life.

What Each Sun Sign Wants in the Workplace – for Employers

by Alison Price

What Each Sun Sign Wants in the Workplace

In astrology the Sun shows what you want. Each Sun sign has specific wants that they naturally strive towards. When we consider how each sign can benefit you as an employer it makes sense to take a look at what each sign wants so you can place each person in the correct role in your company.

The Modes in Astrology

The Modes in Astrology

by Alison Price

Modes

There are three modes (also known as modality, quadruplicities or qualities).

The three modes are cardinal, fixed, and mutable.

Each sign has one mode. Every mode has four signs associated with it.

The four Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

The four Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

The four Mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.

 





Cardinal Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Fixed Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Mutable Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces

 


Modal Emphasis

Only count the seven visible planets of The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Balanced Mode

The modes are balanced when they are spread evenly (as much as you can evenly spread seven into three).

For example, three planets in cardinal signs, two in fixed signs and two in mutable signs are considered in balance.

Strong Mode

A mode is strong when there are at least two more planets in the mode than the next best mode.

For example, four planets in cardinal signs, two in air and one in a mutable sign makes the cardinal mode strong.

Weak Mode

A mode is weak when there are no planets in the mode.

For example, three planets in cardinal signs, four planets in fixed signs, and no planets in a mutable sign makes the mutable mode weak.

Cardinal Meaning

Strong cardinal

People with many planets in the cardinal signs usually start things.

They are self-motivated, have goals and are the leaders of the zodiac.

Cardinal signs initiate change.

Weak cardinal

A lack of planets in the cardinal signs suggests the individual is not one for starting things or getting things going.

For a weak cardinal person, procrastination may be an issue.

Fixed Meaning

Strong fixed

Those with many planets in fixed signs stick to things and can complete things.

They are tenacious, reliable, stubborn and steadfast.

They are resistant to change to the extent that they may have to overcome inertia.

Weak fixed

A shortage of fixed planets in the signs indicates the person has a certain wavering in life.

Mutable Meaning

Strong mutable

Strong mutable signs are flexible, adaptable and inclusive. They are accommodating, adjustable, amenable to change and they can move things along.

Weak mutable

When there are no planets in a mutable sign it imparts some rigidity to the individual.

 




Spring 2021 Ingress Chart

Spring 2021 Ingress Chart

by Alison Price

The Spring 2021 solar ingress chart covers one quarter of the year. Let’s have a closer look at this chart’s potentials.

Ingress Charts

Solar ingress charts are typically set on the Zero Aries house system as they can be read anywhere in the world, so the Sun will be on the left in the zero position of Aries the ram, and in this case, you can ignore the houses. Set this chart for your location to have a closer look at the chart’s potentials for your area.

An ingress chart in Aries may show the situation for the next year because it occurs at the absolute start of the zodiac, but they are typically used to illuminate the future of one quarter of the year at a time.





 

In this case, the time period is from when the Sun enters Aries on March 19th/20th to when it again enters another cardinal sign (Cancer) around June 21st/22nd. This provides us with a good portion of time to work with, three months, one quarter of the year or around 90 days. Enough time to launch projects and set affirmations.

It always depends where you are in the world. The spring equinox in the northern hemisphere occurs at the same time as the autumn equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

Balances Overview

In this chart there are strong influence of:

  • The positive polarity indicating there will be positive vibes and upliftment in general.
  • The mutable mode suggests a certain flexibility between people, and you will be inclined to make allowances for others easier than normal.
  • The air element which hints at you thinking a little longer about the ideas behind what is going on rather than rushing into action.

Planetary Overview

On a planetary level, this ingress chart features:

General Focus

The Sun in Aries suggests you will have more drive and be eager to get things done, although there may be some pushing and shoving.

The Sun is very well placed in its sign of exaltation as it can burn at a high temperature and create initiatives for those who are open to them.

The Sun is conjoined Venus in Pisces (her sign of exaltation) indicating that women may benefit more in this quarter.

The Sun sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, attracting the urge for everyone to go deeper and tap into our hidden talents.

Mercury squares Mars to drive energy into expressing yourself, but you could be overbearing and ostracize others through your strong opinions. This works both ways so you could be at the receiving end of some forceful energy so be prepared to stand your ground.

Love

Venus conjoins Neptune to add some misunderstandings in love affairs. If you are single, you need to be crystal clear about whether you love someone or not, or your prince or princess may simply slip through your fingers.

If you are in a meaningful relationship already, you can anticipate that the blending of Venus and Neptune will bring some confusion in matters of love and romance. You are likely to miss subtle cues from your partner that may be important later. They may tell you something important that you ignore only to realize the implications of after Venus has moved away from the close connection it has with Venus in this chart. Pay attention to all messages from your partner that you hear around the equinox as they will set the tone for the next three months in your relationship.

Mood

The Moon conjoined Mars in Gemini suggests quick change reactions. You could go from happy to sad to annoyed in a moment. If you are a naturally demonstrative person, it may be necessary to pause and take a breath before your emotions become whirlwind.

The Moon trine both of the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, brings the urge to tap into your feelings, both happy and sad, and the urge to experience a rich life.

The Moon squares Neptune which intimates that you are likely to ignore extremes of emotions, and in doing so, you might miss the bigger picture that is unfolding right under your nose.

Money

Venus sextiles Pluto which joins the two money planets in a positive, if not lucrative, way.

There may not be excesses of cash available this quarter, but this moderate aspect connection suggests there will be enough. However, just what is enough will be subjective for each person.

On a global scale, the markets are likely to rally and maintain their strength and buoyancy this quarter.

After the equinox, choose investments that you are already in and add to those rather than branching out into new positions.

Interest rates will likely hold steady if not creep up slightly.

If you are completing your tax returns during this period, send them off at around 8:00am to 10:00am to avoid any unwanted investigations from the tax department.

Question

In which house of your birth chart does this equinox fall?

Children’s Astrology

This is a series of topics on Children’s Astrology.

Many people do not know that a child can have their chart cast as well as well as grown-ups.

That children are able to have their birth chart read is sometimes news to people.

If you think only adults consult an astrologer to interpret their nativity you can think again.

There is a growing number of children who have their chart done every day.

Pluto Transits Through the Houses

Pluto Transits Through the Houses

by Alison Price

Pluto Transits Through the Houses – for Forecasting Astrologers

Introduction

In this post I’m going to share with you, key energy shifts that you can anticipate when Pluto transits the houses of your chart.

When your start with transits you typically begin from the outer planets inwards towards the Sun.

The first planet that you will study will be Pluto.

Pluto takes a long time to pass through each sign.

It can take years to transit the houses of your chart.

Pluto’s Time in Each Sign

Taking into account that Pluto will retrograde over signs boundaries I am only looking at the first time Pluto enters a new sign in all cases.

This will give an average time for the planet to be in each sign, although yes, it will retrograde at the beginning of the ingress and go back to the previous sign for a while and at the end of a sign it will move into the new signa finally to retrograde back for a while into the old sign.

But all things being equal, that is why I’m taking the first ingress of Pluto into each sign that has occurred relatively recently.



Pluto Through the Signs

Pluto was in Leo from 1939 to 1956 when it first entered Virgo. Pluto took 17 years to cover 30 degrees.

Pluto was in Virgo from 1956 to 1971 when it entered Libra. Pluto was 15 years in Virgo.

Pluto was in Libra from 1971 to 1983 when it entered Scorpio. Pluto was 14 years in Libra.

Pluto was in Scorpio from 1983 to 1995 when it entered Sagittarius. Pluto was 12 years in Scorpio.

Pluto was in Sagittarius from 1995 to 2008 when it went into Capricorn. Pluto was 13 years in Sagittarius.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will remain there until 2023 when it will go into Aquarius. Pluto will be 15 years in Capricorn.

Perihelion and Aphelion of Pluto

Perihelion is the closest a planet gets to the Sun and for Pluto, perihelion was actually within Neptune’s orbit on September 5th, 1989 at 13 degrees Scorpio.

Pluto’s aphelion when it is the farthest away from the Sun, the last time was over one hundred years ago in 1867 in Taurus.

Pluto was in Taurus from 1852 to 1882 which means that Pluto spent 30 years in Taurus.

Kepler’s Second Law

Kepler’s 2nd law of planetary motion states that, “Planets sweep out equal areas in equal time.”

This means that when a planet is closer to the Sun, at perihelion, it moves faster, as Pluto did through Scorpio. W

hen a planet is further from the Sun, at aphelion, it moves slower as Pluto did when it transited Taurus.

Pluto transited Scorpio in a brief twelve years but took thirty years to transit Taurus.

Having said all that let’s have a look at some key phrases that you can anticipate when Pluto transits the houses of your natal chart.

 

To find which house Pluto is transiting for you, find 25 degrees of Capricorn and decide which house that is for you. It will be different for everyone.

For myself Pluto is transiting my sixth house at the moment (January 2021).

Initial House Ingress

The most important part of transiting Pluto, or any planet for that matter, is the time it first enters a new house.

That event will bring a period of usually one whole year when the changes relating to the new house are the most felt by the person whose chart it is.

By the time Pluto has been in a house for five to ten yeasr you do get used to the energy.

When in a particular house, if Pluto then conjoins a planet in your house it will it trigger more responses in you.

And when transiting Pluto makes general aspects to the planets in your chart, but that is the topic for another time.

Ok, so we have covered some potential shifts of energy that you may experience as Pluto transits the different houses of your chart.

Find the date when Pluto will change houses for you and jot that special date down in your calendar and worksheet.

Triple Division – Houses

Triple Division – Houses

by Alison Price

Triple Division Houses

The twelve houses can be divided into three groups.

This is known as the triple division of the houses.

There are Three Divisions

  • The first division
  • The second division
  • The third division

The first triple division starts below the ascendant. There are four houses in each triple division. Each triple division has one of each of the four natural houses (by sign) of the elements of fire, earth, air, and water

Using the usual planetary count of only the visible planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and thus seven planets in all) count the planets in each triple division to find the strength or weakness.





Triple Division Strength

Triple divisions are strong when they contain five or more planets, or they are weak when they have no tenants.

First triple division – Me

The first division includes the first, second, third and fourth houses.

It is the me division.

Second triple division – We

The second division includes the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth houses.

It is the we division.

Third triple division – They

The third division includes the ninth, tenth eleventh and twelfth houses.

It is the they division.

Wine Zodiac Pairings – Which Wine Compliments Your Sign?

Wine Zodiac Pairings – Which Wine Compliments Your Sign?

This Guest Post is by Nicholas Rubright from Jordan Vineyard and Winery.

Wine Zodiac Pairings

Wine and the zodiac actually have a lot in common.

Both have elements that change over time and have seasons and situations in which they shine best.

Each sign in the zodiac wheel compliments the others in a specific way, just as wines compliment different foods.

There are already so many resources out there about how to pair food and wine.

Today I’m going to do something a little different and tell you which wine compliments your zodiac sign and why.

 





Fire Signs

Aries and Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah Profile

Style: Full Body, Dry, High Tannin, High Alcohol
Flavors:  Sugar Plum, Blueberry, Dark Chocolate, Black Pepper, Black Tea

Though it’s a common California wine, Petite Sirah comes from a French grape called “Peloursin”. This is a rare grape, with a very flavorful profile. This wine is popular for its bold, fruity flavors which contrast its dark red color.

Aries Traits

March 21 – April 19 | The Ram

Strength: Bold, Honest, Determined, Confident
Weakness: Aggressive, Impulsive, Moody, Impatient

Aries is the first sign in the zodiac wheel. It falls under the Fire element.

As the first sign, Aries is open to new opportunities. They move through life knowing that they’re leading the way for a new adventure, even if their adventures are short lived.

As a fire sign, Aries tend to have bold emotions at all times. It is not unlike an Aries to show some tough love.

To an Aries it means they are doing right by you. This blunt honesty is what makes them a loyal friend and lover.

Petit Sirah Pairing

Petite Sirah is full of aggressive sweet and bitter notes. Similar to Aries, who are bold in their own right, giving you a refreshing solution to a problem.

Within all its powerful flavors, Petite Sirah is good for your health. The bitterness is an effect of the high level of tannins in this kind of wine.

Like an Aries’ brutal honesty can leave a sour taste in your mouth, so can a Petite Sirah.

Among its sweet notes of blueberries and sugar plums,  Petite Sirahs have the bitterness of dark chocolate and black pepper to spice things up.

Life is never boring with an Aries, this flavorful wine pairing will not disappoint.


Leo and Champagne

Champagne Profile

Style: Light Body, High Acidity, Intensely Dry
Flavors: Citrus, Peach, White Cherry, Almond, Toasty

Champagne comes in a variety of brut, dry, and sweet bodies with deep flavors that pair great with seafood or crunchy appetizers.

You know Champagne as the world’s go-to bubbly used to celebrate special occasions like weddings, holidays, and Friday nights.

Leo Traits

July 23 – August 22 | The Lion
Strength: Ambitious, Loyal, Generous, Enthusiastic, Leader
Weakness: Egoistic, Lazy, Stubborn, Arrogant

Out of all the Fire signs, Leos yearns most to make an impression.

In fact, it’s their number one priority. Their personality is powerful and attractive making them hard to miss.

As far as love languages go, this Fire sign is most fluent in Words of Affirmation. As much as they receive compliments, they’ll give them right back to you.

Leo’s warm heart and eagerness to do well in everything they set out to do is what makes up their magnetic confidence and loyalty.

However, if Leos are mistreated, they won’t hesitate to move on from what is making them unhappy.

Champagne Pairing

A Leo’s loyalty is unmatched so long as it’s reciprocated.

They know what they deserve and will not budge. Fire signs need the proper attention to feel someone is worth the affection they are giving.

When you don’t fulfill the needs of a Leo, their confidence dwindles. Just like a Champagne left unattended, that can’t help but go flat.

Both Champagne and Leos can be dry or sweet depending on their style.

Regardless of the details, there is no better pair to celebrate with than Leos and Champagne.

 


Sagittarius and Malbec

Malbec Notes

Style: Full Body, Dry, Low Acidity, Low Tannin, High Alcohol
Flavors: Red Plum, Blackberry, Vanilla, Tobacco, Cocoa

Like many other wines, Malbec originated in France. However, most vineyards that produce this wine are in Argentina.

Malbec has a deep and sweet full body bound to leave you wanting more. It’s cocoa and vanilla tones give this red wine a smooth finish every time.

Sagittarius Traits

November 22 – December 21 | The Archer
Strength: Idealistic, Adventurous, Persistent, Optimistic, Romantic
Weakness: Competitive, Impulsive, Impatient, Overachiever, Blunt

Sagittarians are the social butterflies among the zodiac. They are known to be very positive and outgoing. They are always up for sharing information with others.

As the Archer, they seek out as much knowledge as they can find.

A Sagittarian’s curiosity is limitless especially regarding love, philosophy, and religion. They yearn to be free, therefore knowledge and adventure is what they pursue most. This can make them a bit stubborn, as they hate being told the can’t do something.

Malbec Pairing

Malbec is a fun and strong wine with strong notes of oak and black fruits.

As the last of the Fire signs, Sagittarians can be as aggressive in their passion as they are in their truth-seeking.

Unlike other wines, a Malbec’s finish does not last, and the same can be said with the adventures of a Sagittarius.

Just like Aries, Sagittarians are very good at starting new ventures but are not the best as finishing them. Without looking back at how their last one ended, they’ll embark on a new one.


Earth Signs

Taurus and Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon Profile

Style: Full Body, Dry, High Tannin, High Alcohol
Flavors: Black Cherry, Black Currant, Baking Spices, Cedar

Cabernet Sauvignon is among the safest choices when selecting a red wine. It has a strong full body with a balance of fruits and spices.

This California wine is easy to pair with a variety of unexpected foods.
Sure, red meat is an obvious pairing, but get yourself some dark chocolate with this wine, and you’ll be dreaming about it later.

Taurus Traits

April 20 – May 20 | The Bull
Strength: Loyal, Dependable, Patient, Grounded
Weakness: Possessive, Aggressive, Uncompromising

Earth signs tend to do things to get rewarded.

Taurus is no exception. People who fall under this sign will work hard for the benefits they earn.

Along with their work ethic, a Taurus is dependable knowing that they will earn respect and other prizes.

However, they know it’s a two-way street and remain aware that their work is ongoing.

This is where their patience comes in.

As hopeless of a romantic as they can be, a Taurus is always on the defense.

You must first earn their trust before they feel safe giving you theirs in return.

Cabernet Sauvignon Pairing

Cabernet Sauvignon is a sensual red wine that you learn to love and trust – not unlike a Taurus.

The sensual undertones of the wine’s flavor evoke black fruits and spices.

These undertones are found in Taurians too, they’re one of the most sensual signs on the wheel.

Both the sign and wine have a range of earthy flavors with a strong body, and dry style.


Virgo and Chardonnay

Chardonnay Notes

Style: Full Body, Dry, Medium Acidity, High Alcohol, Little to No Tanning
Flavors: Yellow Apple, Starfruit, Pineapple, Vanilla, Butter

Chardonnay was originally harvested in large quantities in the Burgundy region of France. The variety of flavors a Chardonnay offers is not limited to the list above.

When fermented and aged in oak, it develops spicy, almost bourbon-like notes, making it the rich white wine we love.

Virgo Traits

August 23 – September 22 | The Maiden
Strength: Strong, Hardworking, Observant, Analytical, Sophisticated
Weakness: Intense, Dominating, Perfectionist, Shy

Virgos have a very practical way of making their plans.

Like Taurus, this Earth sign doesn’t mind putting in the work, as they realize how the little things can add up to the big picture.

Virgos are known to be the most sophisticated on the zodiac wheel. Both their work and honest advice are delivered clearly so that you won’t misunderstand what they mean.

It is their graceful advice and willingness to help that make Virgos great friends.

Chardonnay Pairing

It takes a lot of dedication to make Chardonnay the elegant wine it is, much like the dedication Virgos put into their own craft.

Virgos are sophisticated in the way they talk, work, and carry themselves.

Some call it perfectionism, Virgos call it attention to detail.

Virgos are loved for their ability to compliment all the other signs just as Chardonnays are loved for their versatility in food pairing.


Capricorn and Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc Profile

Style: Light Body, Dry, Low Alcohol, Low Tannin, High Acidity
Flavors: Gooseberry, Honeydew Melon, Grapefruit, White Peach, Passion Fruit

It’s hard to confuse Sauvignon Blanc with other white wines (like Chardonnay).
When compared, you’ll note Sauvignon Blanc is full of acidity and herbal flavors.

This rich white wine is widely produced as the grape can be grown almost anywhere. The result, Sauvignon Blanc comes in a variety of ranges – from lean to bountiful.

Capricorn Traits

December 22 – January 19 | The Goat
Strength: Responsible, Disciplined, Ambitious, Practical

Weakness:Inability to be Wrong, Pessimistic, Unforgiving

Capricorns will tell you they are the “Greatest Of All Time” or these days, G.O.A.T.

This earth sign is a determined sign which doesn’t need to be asked to do what they know needs to be done.

Along with their practical sense of duty, they always strive for success. Yet they are fully aware that their success will take time. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day. That’s an Earth sign for you.

Sauvignon Blanc Compatibility

Capricorns are dry with their emotions, much like Sauvignon Blanc. This is due to a Capricorn’s view of the world and their diligent traits.

Sauvignon Blanc is one-part fruits and one-part earthy notes matching Capricorn’s element perfectly.





Air Signs

Gemini and Bordeaux Blend

Bordeaux Blend Profile

Style: Full Body, High Tannin, High Alcohol, Medium Acidity, Dry
Flavors: Black Currant, Black Cherry, Graphite, Chocolate, Dried Herbs

A Bordeaux Blend is made up of grapes used for red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, in addition to other grapes harvested within the same region of France.

The uses of multiple grapes make this wine a sweet, dark, red blend with high tannins and a strong body.

Perfect for red meat pairings with very little seasoning.

Gemini Traits

May 21 – June 20 | The Twins
Strength: Intellectual, Versatile, Social, Cheerful
Weakness: Gossipy, Indecisive, Superficial, Anxious

Gemini is one of the signs that tends to earn a bad reputation. They have a two-faced stigma as their personality is ever changing.

The reality is that Geminis are too smart for their own good.

They can adapt to any environment they are in, and behave accordingly.

Air elements will demonstrate an ease of going with the flow, and Gemini is no exception.

Geminis also love to talk your ear off, but it’s hard to not enjoy a Gemini’s company.

Their charm is contagious, and it’s almost impossible not to learn from them.

Bordeaux Blend Compatibility

Can you blame me for picking out a Blend for the Twins? Much like Bordeaux Blend is mixed to balance well, Geminis have their own mix.

It should be said that as versatile as Geminis come, you never really know which Gemini you’ll get.

Just as you never know which grapes are within the Bordeaux Blend you choose.

Though the flavor of the wine varies in strengths (either sweet or citrusy), the wine stays true to its notes. As do Geminis to themselves.


Libra and Moscato

Moscato Profile

Style: Light Body, Low Alcohol, Sweet, Low Acidity
Flavors: Meyer Lemon, Mandarin Orange, Pear, Orange Blossom, Honeysuckle

Moscatos are among the sweet white wines with fruity notes.

Unlike the majority of the wines mentioned, Moscato is an Italian wine made with the Muscat Grape.

There are different Moscato styles which include Bubbly, Still, Pink, Red, or Dessert Moscato.

This wine can be made into several styles depending on which Muscat grape is used, and how.

Libra Traits

September 23 – October 21 | The Scales
Strength: Fair, Charming, Diplomatic, Easy Going, Imaginative
Weakness: Indecisive, Bad Temper, People Pleasers, Overthinker

Libras are towards the center of the zodiac wheel, and you can see a noticeable change in the signs that follow. The first six signs of the zodiac focus more on their individual needs. While the signs that follow Libras care more about their impact on others.

As the Scales, Libras constantly analyze if should they be kinder or harsher depending on how others treat them. This constant mental back and forth is what feeds their indecisiveness.

Moscato Pairing

Libras and Moscatos always leave a good impression.

A Moscato wine is sweet and aromatic, while balanced with acidity and a mineral finish.

Libras are all about finding and providing balance. Be it in work or relationships, they find comfort in harmony.

Libras don’t care to change for most people. To do so, would tip the balance scale and would be unfair to their own desires.

Though a Muscat grape can fit into any type of Moscato, the wine will always stay true to its flavor and body, no matter the color.


Aquarius and Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir Profile

Style: Light Body, Dry, High Acidity, Low Tannins
Flavors: Cherry, Raspberry, Hibiscus, Mushroom, Vanilla

Pinot Noir is among the world’s favorite red wines.

A bottle of light-red wine can be aged for up to 10 years, sometimes more. The aging process enriches the flavors making it all the more satisfying in color and taste.

Aquarius Traits

January 20 – February 18 | The Water Bearer

Strength: Humanitarian, Intelligent, Independent, Loyal, Visionaries
Weakness: Detached, Extremist, Aloof, Stubborn, Unpredictable

An Aquarius showers us with their knowledge and ideas, as a Water Bearer showers people with their gift of water.

This Air sign is all about making humanity great.

They look to encourage others to do better because they see the world as a clock that runs on many gears. If one piece fails, the clock doesn’t work. They apply this philosophy to themselves as well – always trying to improve on their weaknesses.

Pinot Noir Pairing

Both Aquarians and Pinot Noir are dry, yet smooth. A Pinot Noir wine’s finish is smooth though its body is light with high acidity.

In comparison, Aquarians are not ones to lead with emotions. They can be dry in their efforts to communicate how they feel. They believe their actions will speak for themselves.

Just as an Aquarius is progressive, Pinot Noir is one of those wines that increase in finesse with age.

 





Water Signs

Cancer and Riesling

Riesling Profile

Style: Light Body, Little Tannins, High Acidity, Off-Dry, Low Alcohol
Flavors: Lime, Green Apple, Beeswax, Jasmine, Petrol

Rieslings are an aromatic white wine that was first produced in Germany, making it stand out from the French and California wine crowds.

It was turned into a classic table wine for its ability to pair well with savory and sweet foods.

Cancer Traits

June 21 – July 22 | The Crab
Strength: Kind, Creative, Family Oriented, Tough
Weakness: Hot-Headed, Immature, Moody, Overthinkers, Emotional

Cancer signs are deeply empathetic, as all water signs are.

Cancers are driven by their nurturing needs and seek to have a family when all is said and done.

Though they wear their hearts on their sleeve, Cancers aren’t weak. As the Crab, Cancers have a tough exterior and will be strong when they need to be, especially to protect their loved ones.

Riesling Pairing

There’s a sense of moodiness to both Cancers and Rieslings.

While Cancers have a sweet demeanor, their temper is strong. Cancers are quick to react based on their emotions.

Rieslings, too have plenty of strength. They can range from tasting really sweet to bone dry.

The sweetness of a Riesling is controlled during the fermentation process. It’s not so much up to the grape’s nature as it is on the maker’s influence.

Like a Cancer’s empathetic nature, which has a tendency of getting away from them.


Scorpio and Merlot

Merlot Profile

Style: Full Body, Extra Dry, High Tannin, Medium Acidity, High Alcohol
Flavors: Cherry, Plum, Chocolate, Bay Leaf, Vanilla

Merlot is one of those wines that stand out in the crowd. It has vibrant black cherry flavors and great depth.

Due to its complimenting flavors and chocolatey finish, Merlot is a wine can mix well with other full body wines, like Cabernet Sauvignon.

Scorpio Traits

October 22 – November 21 | The Scorpion
Positive: Loyal, Passionate, Determined, Intuitive, Empathetic
Negative: Secretive, Intense, Emotional, Jealous, Flirtatious

Scorpios are one of the other signs that get a bad reputation. If you ask around, people will tell you that Scorpios are the most intense, but this is due to their passion.

They hate small talk, for example, and would much rather just get to the point.

A Scorpio’s keen sense of intuition is what helps them know if a person is lying, or being shady.

They also know who is good and will be fiercely loyal with whom they trust.

Break that trust, however, and it’s game over for whoever wronged them.

Merlot Pairing

A Merlot starts bitter (or intense, if you will) with sweet tones to finish it off.

If you don’t pay attention, you’ll miss it the uniqueness of this full body wine.

We can learn to appreciate a Scorpio, in the same way we appreciate a Merlot.

Scorpio’s sweetness comes through in their passion and loyalty.

To a Water sign like Scorpio, loyalty means never revealing secrets. This type of loyalty, along with their protective nature, is what makes them irreplaceable in friendships and love.


Pisces and Rosé

Rosé Notes

Style: Light Body, Dry, Low Tannin
Common Flavors: Lime, Cherry, Watermelon, Strawberry, Celery, Pepper

Rosé is a wine that does not come from a specific grape. Instead, it can be made from a variety of grapes that are used to make fuller bodied wines.

Grapes found in Rosé include, but are not limited to, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Grenaché.

Contrary to popular belief, Rosé does not come from mixing wines. And though doing so is prohibited in many places, the region of Champagne, France is not one of them. Ergo, the Rosé Champagne we all know and love.

Pisces Traits

February 19 – March 20 | The Fish
Strength: Artistic, Compassionate, Intuitive, Gentle
Weakness: Fearful, Too Trusting, Head in the Clouds, Play the Victim

Pisces is both the last Water sign of the bunch and the last sign in the zodiac wheel.

Perhaps this order is what makes up Pisces traits, as they encompass a little from all the signs.

Though Pisces like to keep to themselves, there’s no denying they are focused, selfless, and easy going.

After all, they are the Fish of the wheel, so they just keep swimming.

Like their Water sign companions, they are very empathetic and protective of their hearts.

Their eagerness to make others happy can be taken advantage of. Knowing this, they will be kind, but never a pushover. They can tell people’s bad intentions from miles away.

Rosé Pairing

Just like a Rosé can be composed of a variety of grapes that come from other wines, a Pisces is shaped like their zodiac family.

When hanging out with a Pisces, it’s never dull. Like with any Rosé you choose, it is always a fun and unique experience.

Quarter Moon Phase Pattern

Quarter Moon Phase Pattern

by Alison Price

The Quarter Phase Moon Pattern combines only four of the Moon’s phases; new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter.

This loosely fits with each week of 7 days long.

Patterns repeat in time as well as in the sky.

I still love the yellows, golds, tangerines and reds of the spectrum. This pattern is a little in your face but that’s the energy of fire signs.

Should I do a pattern in blue/grey shades as well? You know, more luny?
