I have a question for you. As a libra sun, moon and venus and a Taurus rising, let’s just say I can be pretty vain haha! But lately my appearance has taken a big dive. I’ve noticed my stunning Libran sister is looking a little less sparkly, and she too has complained of weight gain. So my question is… Can beauty wax and wane with the stars?! Is there some lesson
to be learned here? Or should we just stop bitching and reclaim our Libra right to beauty(read: vanity)? Heheh xox
The short (because i am busy) answer is YES. Blame the Dark Moon. One’s perceptions of oneself, allure and powers etc is often diminished at this time. Of course, as a Taurus Rising, you also have Saturn in opposition, always a reality check. BUT totally reclaim your right to the Awesome. It just takes more effort with a Dark Moon. It’s better to just accept that you might be a little bit low & do nourishing things.
Definitely don’t do what one Leo client of mine has been doing this Dark Moon (in Leo): lying in her unmade bed, gazing with angst into her handmirror, obsessing about time, skin tone, apparently dropping brows and why her hairdresser no longer respects her. Hair IS Freudian on a Dark Moon in Leo but still…
As you will know, if you get my Daily Mystic email, the Dark Moon is when still yourself, stay nourished, go easy on yourself and rest or gather info. Push yourself AFTER the Moon is New.
OH AND Venus Retro in Capricorn with Mars Retro in Libra is totally going to be a game-changer for relationships, beauty practice, culture and damn well everything. I’m on it just as soon as i’ve sorted the Nine and a Half Weeks of Mercury in Scorpio. Obsession: it’s more than just a neurotoxic (apparently) Calvin Klein scent from the 90s.
