Why Others Find You Hot Based on Your Venus Sign

Venus has just moved into Libra, one of the two signs she rules over, so to celebrate this lovely romantic shift let’s take a little look at how our Venus signs affect how people see us and what they find hottest about us – oooh!

For this, you might need to check what sign your Venus is in, rather than your Sun sign. You can do that very easily here – just enter your birth details, scroll down to the chart, find Venus, and off you go!

Venus in Aries

 
You’re passionate about life and love trying new things – trips to a theme park, go-kart racing or to try the latest ice cream parlour that’s opened up in town – hanging out with you is always a fun and energetic experience, if sometimes a little competitive, making you someone that plenty of people want to date long-term!

However, not everyone can keep up! Most of your enthusiasm tends to go into the chase of new romance, and once you’ve got it you can lose interest, which only makes them want you more! The special someone who eventually wins your heart will have to be just as exciting, active and full of life as you, but when they do win you over, they’ll find that you’re actually a big romantic softie at heart and you’ve just been waiting for the right person to dedicate your generous and passionate heart to.

 

Venus in Taurus

 
Appearances mean a lot to Venus in Taurus – their own and the people they’re dating, so if your Venus is here, you likely take great pride in your presentation and expect others to do the same – no scruffiness welcome here! You carry yourself with poise and grace, and this, coupled with your natural attractiveness, no doubt wins you many admirers!

But it’s not all surface level stuff with Venus in Taurus, and those who stick around long enough to see beyond the impeccable style and sweet persona will find a dependable and loyal companion capable of huge generosity, an indulgent nature when it comes to food, drink and affection, plus plenty of sensuality behind closed doors!
 

Venus in Gemini

 
Talking to a Venus in Gemini is always an interesting affair! You’re a keen learner and you absorb information like a sponge, ready to retell it in fascinating and inspiring ways, and you’re also a master flirt, making you the life and soul of a party. People are attracted to your intelligence and wit, and you have a fun and light-hearted approach to the world, making you a charming and lively date – there’s never an awkward pause with you!

Underneath this bubbly and bright demeanour is someone who is really seeking love, but just very good at hiding it under a cheery and carefree persona, but the lucky person that manages to hold a Venus in Gemini’s attentions for long enough will find a sweet-natured and loyal soul who will always be at their side cheering them on with a smile and a motivational quote or two!
 

Venus in Cancer

 
At first you may seem a little shy, taking a while to come out of your shell and get to know someone, yet you know yourself ever so well. This gives you a confident yet quiet poise that select people will think is just fascinating. Female Venus in Cancers tend to have a very feminine ‘girl next door’ quality that masculine types will desire to take care of, and male Venus in Cancers are often your typical nice guy, attracting other well-meaning people who want a traditional fairy-tale love story.

When in love, you’ll happily give your all to someone and will support and nurture them so they feel the safety that you also yearn for. Since you’re so intuitive, your gentle demeanour can confuse those who think they can take advantage – but you can smell someone messing with you a mile off! While your sense of self-protection is strong, beneath your shell you’re a warm-hearted and sensitive soul with a desire to look after those you love and a fantastic sense of humour too!
 

Venus in Leo

 
You want to be wined and dined, brought flowers and told you’re beautiful, and why shouldn’t you? You are beautiful indeed! You take care of your appearance, are confident in yourself, and no doubt have an admirable mane of hair that you take great pride in. While you expect lavish acts of romance and chivalry, you’re more than happy to return the favour and love planning surprises, vacations or extravagant gifts that your loved one can’t help but be excited by.
 
loveheart locks
 
Once you’ve been suitably pinned down by a suitor, you like things done your way, but you do it with a kind heart and your loyalty is perhaps the strongest of all signs. You’ll go to the ends of the earth for the one you love and do it with an abundance of affection – so long as they play their part too!
 

Venus in Virgo

 
You take great care of yourself, in body mind and spirit, and because of that you know yourself very well and are a great conversationalist. Even shy Venus in Virgos tend to know more about the world than they let on, and the whole “Virgin” association with this sign is less to do with naivety, and more to do with your modest demeanour and easy approach to the truth, in all its forms. Because of this, you tend to attract those who’ve been hurt before and need someone to trust – in you they will find exactly that.
 
heart with candles
 
While a Venus in Virgo is cautious to give their heart away, when they do, it will be with huge dedication and devotion to their partner. You can be sweet or strong, active or passive, thinking and feeling – whenever the need arises, making you an irresistible paradox with far more personal power than you let on.
 

Venus in Libra

 
You have impeccable manners and are well-liked by most – you’re the kind that can be confidently shown off to the parents and win over everyone with your wit and charm. You take a lot of care in your appearance and even if you don’t consider yourself conventionally beautiful you tend to attract many potential lovers who find you incredibly alluring.

Underneath this near-on perfect exterior is someone who values fairness and equality above all, and you expect your partner to be the same. This love of harmony extends to your aesthetic nature and you are likely to have an artistic streak, enjoying the finer things in life, whether that be a dinner and dancing or watching the sun set over an ocean scene. This makes you an interesting, fair and communicative partner who will always try to bring beauty and grace to their relationships.
 

Venus in Scorpio

 
Many of us will know the stereotypical badboy/badgirl that Venus in Scorpio is known for, but you’re not all mystery and sex appeal, as your lovers know all too well. Beneath the attitude and charm or disarming sense of humour lives someone who is deeper than most, with an emotional well that runs far beyond what it appears at the surface.
 
couple holding fingers loved up couple
 
No matter what the aesthetics, if you’re a Venus in Scorpio, you need to be able to trust someone, and once you do, they’re yours forever. This may come as a surprise to some of your past suitors, who no doubt still pine for your romantic intensity and sizzling personal power, but there’s only one person out there for you, and you don’t give your heart easily!
 

Venus in Sagittarius

 
Your fun-loving, carefree and adventurous nature means that regardless of looks, many people are attracted to you, and you’re happy to meet all of them, though not all of them will win your affections long-term. You’re a natural storyteller and can captivate those around you with endless stories, jokes and opinions, but once the evening is over, you’re happy to return to your own comfort zone without the need to oblige anyone too long.

You’re not an easy one to pin down, and often Venus in Sag will marry or partner up later in life, as they have so much to do and see first! However, when you do, you’ll become their best friend as well as their lover and bring a cheery joy to that person’s life, making up for your occasional lack of direction with a warmth that most would delight in.
 

Venus in Capricorn

 
You think things through very carefully: in your impeccable dress sense, charming demeanour and the types of people you go for. You like your loves to be in control of their own lives, someone who is dependable – this to you spells stability, which is what you desire most in your relationships. Because of this, you can sometimes start off a little aloof, but once you know that person is worth it, you’ll climb mountains to be with them and show them that you adore them. These high standards will surely have people trying to prove that they’re worthy of your attentions.

A Venus in Capricorn gives out a mature air when it comes to romance, as in, you seem to know what you’re doing, and this can make people feel protected and attracted to your confidence, or better yet, it can win you a partner of equal emotional strength. When in love, you are happy to give all you’ve got and will always work at a relationship and commit tremendous loyalty and dedication.
 

Venus in Aquarius

 
A Venus in Aquarius may start off as your friend, then build up to a relationship. If this is you, you like to know a person before you give your heart to them, if only to make sure that you’re truly compatible past the romance and fireworks stage. Connecting intellectually is important to you and you’re a quirky, innovative and progressive thinker with many fascinating and creative ideas that others will love to engage with.

While you may seem a little cool at first, and you fiercely value your independence, when in love, you’ll often find creative and exciting ways to show your beloved how awesome you think they are, and while you’re sometimes a little put off by overly emotional types, you love far more than you let on and there’s never a dull moment when you’re around!
 

Venus in Pisces

 
Venus in Pisces is ethereal and empathetic, giving support to those who need it and offering caring and understanding shelter, making everyone feel comfortable and nurtured around you. You may seem a little shy at first, but you have an air of kindness about you that attracts people who perhaps need a little guidance, and you’re all too happy to give it. Your romantic, sensitive and idealistic way helps you to connect spiritually with those around you, attracting other spiritually-minded people to you.

When you love, you love unconditionally, and perhaps sometimes to your detriment, people may take advantage of this. You are easily hurt, but would never hurt others, making you a loyal and sensitive partner that would give the world to see those around them happy. You yearn for a fairy-tale happy ending and many would be lucky to receive your giving and eternal love.

10 Top Tips for Mercury Retrograde

mercury retrograde mercury - infographic image presents one of the solar system planet, look and facts.
 
It’s that time of year again – Mercury Retrograde! From July 26th to August 19th, the planet of thought and communication will be creating a standstill. But before you panic, Mercury Retrograde is not necessarily a bad thing, despite what a lot of stuff online may say, but rather, this can be a great time to focus in on what’s not serving us anymore, with the help of some top tips of course!
 
ellie rose astrologer smiling in rishikesh india
 

Look to the Past

 
Technically, what’s happening when we have a retrograde, is that the planet in question (Mercury in this case) looks as if it’s moving backwards across the sky. Traditionally, this would have spelled confusion and “backwards” thinking. However, it’s actually a really good time to look backwards in our own lives, to take stock of where we’ve been, so we can better plan where we’re going.

Take it Slow

 
It pays to slow things down during Mercury Retrograde, not because everything will go wrong if you don’t, but because that way you’ll have chance to notice all the little signs that are desperately trying to show you the way!

Think First

 
Traditionally, Mercury Retrograde is a time when thought and communication can go a bit topsy turvy, so make sure you really think before opening your mouth or making any big decisions. This doesn’t mean you can’t do anything, just be aware that you might change your mind soon after, so think everything through properly before doing or saying anything drastic!
 
checkmate
 

Don’t take it Personally

 
The same goes for information that you receive from others. If you find yourself on the receiving end of negativity or nitpicking, just assume it’s misdirected and don’t take it personally. The retrograde can actually be a good time to learn about how to thicken your skin and not let your mood or self-worth be dictated by others. Only you get to decide how you feel.

Look Up your Horoscope

 
Mercury Retrograde affects everyone slightly differently, for example, if you’re a Virgo or a Gemini, you’ll probably have a more intense experience as Mercury is your ruling planet. Check out my weekly horoscopes for more tailored advice or give one of our advisors a call for extra precise info.

Write it down

 
One way of sorting through potentially confusing thoughts and feelings is to write it all down! Journal it all out and see what comes up for you. Or in the case of overwhelm, create lists so your brain isn’t doing all the work for you.

Focus on the RE- words

 
Retrograde always reminds me of re- words (RE-trograde – get it?) so focus on words like: reassess, review, rehearse, redo, reinterpret, reveal, revive, recover, repeat, revamp, reawaken, reassure, recharge, reconnect, reincarnate, rekindle. Where can you apply them to your life?

Read the Fine Print

 
Mercury is very detail orientated so anything retrograde related will be in the small things. This goes for anything official – make sure you’re really clued up as to what you’re doing, as well as for life in general. Keep an eye out for small signs that will point you in the right direction.

Organise and Declutter

 
Since Mercury is all about the details, it’s time to get real on which of your own details need a bit of a clean-up. Do you need to do some off-season spring cleaning? Has some project sat collecting dust? Do your files need filing and your to-do list tackling? If so, get on it now, you’ll feel so much better for it afterwards!

Open Your Mind

 
As with all astrological transits, it really does pay to be intuitive, and by that, I mean keep an open mind, pay attention to what’s around you and go into everything you do trusting that you’re always on the right path.

So, it’s not all bad! There’s plenty of opportunity here for productivity and progress, you just have to get into the zone and make the most of a potentially confusing time – if you do, you’ll be well on your way to epic planetary transformations, rather than hiding at home because of the big bad retrograde!

Spiritual Travel and Buddhist Meditation

buddha leaves green stone
 
Hi there my lovely Stargazers! This is Ellie Rose, reporting to you from Dharamsala, India. I’ve been here doing your horoscopes, learning about Buddhist  meditation and I’d like to share a little bit of it all with you guys back home!
 
ellie rose astrologer smiling in rishikesh india
 

Astrology from the Mountaintops

 
So right now, I’m recording your weekly horoscopes from the beautiful woods and mountains around Dharamsala, which sits in the Himalaya Mountains of North India. You can see where I’m living in my photo below:
 
buddhism and travel mountain tops
 

The Home of the Dalai Lama

 
Just up from the city of Dharamsala is the home of the 14th Dalai Lama and a large Tibetan population. Because of this the place has got a very spiritual, Tibetan vibe and many beautiful monasteries.
 
BUDDHIS MONK RED HANDS BUDDHISM
 
I was lucky enough to see a teaching from the Dalai Lama here recently, where he spoke about the importance of compassion. How we should practice compassion for every person and creature, but also compassion for ourselves and our own ups and downs, which is something I think we struggle with in the West.
 
buddhist children monks buddhism water
 
I recommend watching the Martin Scorsese film, Kundun, which is not only a great film, but tells the story of the current Dalai Lama and his incredible journey to find refuge in India. I watched this film at the Tushita Buddhist Meditation Centre here, sat amongst golden statues of the Buddha and beautiful mandala paintings, but even if you’re sat in your living room I highly recommend watching it!

Tibetan Buddhist Meditation

 
As part of my stay here, I’ve been studying Buddhism and practicing a lot of meditation at the Tushita Centre, and one of my favourite things I’ve learnt here is a practice known as ‘Tonglen’.
 
buddhist monk child parasol buddha buddhism
 
This Tibetan meditation technique is so simple and really helps whenever you have a moment of negativity or stress. You can do it at home, at your desk or walking down the road, so it’s perfect for us busy Westerners!
 
buddhist child monk buddhism meditation
 
Tonglen Meditation: When you take a breath in, imagine you are breathing in for all the people suffering the same problem as you. Then when you breathe out, imagine you are breathing out to give relief to you all.

It can be as simple as breathing in and thinking: “I understand” and breathing out and thinking “It’s ok”.
 

 
At first it won’t seem natural, but when you get into the habit of doing this, you start to do it automatically when feeling a moment of stress or anxiety which helps long-term too. It’s designed to easily build the same compassion for yourself and the world just as the Dalai Lama teaches! Try it out yourself!

To see more of where I am now, check out my weekly horoscope videos here or on YouTube – I look forward to seeing you there!

Yoga Poses for Your Zodiac Sign (with Insta-Inspo!)

ellie rose astrologer smiling in rishikesh india
 

Aries – Warrior 1

 
Aries is the sign of the warrior, so what better pose to do than the Warrior?! This pose is great for stretching legs, hips and backs as well as boosting energy and self-confidence, so you can go back to your life with your inner strength at its peak, like the warrior you are.
 


 

Taurus – Cat / Cow

 
Since Taurus is the sign of the bull, what better pose to do than cat / cow? The steady rhythm of this pose is perfect for grounding and releasing any negative emotions you may have picked up throughout the day with your sensitive nature. Remember to breathe!
 


 

Gemini – Tree Pose

 
Gemini is often overwhelmed by thoughts, so you’ll need a pose that takes all your concentration and helps to clear your mind. The Tree pose is great for focus as well as giving you a little boost of confidence in yourself that you can achieve anything you put your mind to!
 

A post shared by Nada Mustafa (@nadamustafa_) on


 

Cancer – Bridge Pose

 
A Cancer is a sensitive soul and often gives to others over themselves, so if this is you, a good chest-opening yoga pose will strengthen your heart and stimulate feelings of self-love. Yoga is a great way to take care of yourself so make sure you do this one regularly to avoid feeling burnt out!
 

A post shared by Claire Kim (@clairekimyoga) on


 

Leo – Mountain Pose

 
A Leo might seem confident and together, but a lot of the time you can actually be very harsh on yourself. The Mountain pose is simple but very powerful and will help you to stand strong in your strengths, find your inner confidence and begin to trust that you have everything you need, regardless of what others think!
 


 

Virgo – Child’s Pose

 
It’s quite easy for busy Virgo to get overwhelmed and so instead of giving you a complicated pose that I know you’ll easily master, try a simple Child’s pose and surrender to what will be. Child’s pose is what we use when we take a quick rest in yoga, or when things get hard and we need to go inwards.
 


 

Libra – Bow Pose

 
Open your heart up with a Bow pose, designed to strengthen your chest and back, as well as softening any negative feelings you may be having about yourself. This pose makes you feel strong while still making use of your gentle yet determined nature. Take it slow though!
 

A post shared by Nyasha Griffith (@nkg22) on


 

Scorpio – Happy Baby

 
If that well-known passion of yours isn’t put to use it can store up in the body as tenseness and negativity, so a light-hearted pose that opens your hips like the Happy Baby is perfect for a Scorpio who could do with a little more joy. Just roll around like a big baby and enjoy the gentle spine massage, there’s nothing more to it!
 

A post shared by Kok Ming Wei (@mingweikok) on


 

Sagittarius – Locust Pose

 
A Sagittarius is so full of exciting ideas that sometimes they get overwhelmed or don’t end up putting any of it into action, this can cause a dip in your confidence that yoga can help with! The Locust pose strengthens your spine and back muscles, so you can stand up tall and begin to confidently chase your dreams.
 

A post shared by alessandra (@sambhavayoga) on


 

Capricorn – Extended Side Angle

 
The Extended Side Angle pose starts off a little difficult as it requires you to know your limits and get it right before you move onto the next stage, making it perfect for a dedicated Capricorn who needs to feel like they’re doing something well but sometimes needs to slow down and really focus on the task at hand.
 


 

Aquarius – Boat Pose

 
An Aquarius needs their mind to be stimulated, so a Boat pose is perfect as it can take a little while to perfect, something an Aquarius is great at, but it’s unique enough to keep your interest as well as strengthening your determination and confidence.
 


 

Pisces – Lord of the Dance

 
Increase your discipline while feeling graceful and creative with the impressive Lord of the Dance pose. It’s perfect for a Pisces who can get stuck in dreaming as it encourages us to be bold, take action and keep persevering until we make our vision a reality.

How to Make the Most of the Summer Solstice!

ellie rose astrologer smiling in rishikesh india
 
This Summer Solstice is on June 21st, the time when the Sun is at its peak. For thousands of years people have worshipped this astrological event, but in a modern world it’s not easy to get to Stonehenge or even find a bonfire to dance around! So here are some small things you can do to mark the occasion and bring in some sunshine to your life.
 

First, what is the Summer Solstice?

 
Summer Solstice, or “Midsummer”, is the time when the days are longest, and the sun is at its highest peak in the sky. We’re at the halfway point of the year and after this, the Sun will start to lower, and the days will become shorter. This is a time of celebration and joy, a time to worship the light and fill yourself up ready to welcome in the harvest and the dark time of year.
 
full moon night sky
 

Organise Your Thoughts

 
Since we’re halfway through the year, it’s a really good time to write about how far you’ve come and where you’d like to go next. Think of it as a breather before we enter the second half of the year. What goals would you like to accomplish? What are you proud of having achieved so far? Set a timer if it helps and don’t stop to edit, just get all your thoughts down on paper so you’re ready to move forwards.
 
sunset-815270_1280 POPPIES FIELD
 

Collect Plants

 
The days surrounding Summer Solstice have always been known as a good time to collect plants for medicinal or magical use and it’s been said that they will have extra potent powers if collected at this time of year. If you have some nature nearby, why not organise a trip to see what you can find? Wild lavender, mint, garlic, blackcurrants and dandelion can be cooked, put in tea or used in rituals and spells for extra healthy benefits.
 
forest trees sunlight nature
 

Have a Dinner Party

 
Solstices are a traditional time of celebration and what better way to celebrate than with a big slap up meal with all your friends and family? Serve foods like honey, fresh fish, strawberries and cream – anything summery and indulgent that makes everyone feel filled up and happy. Perhaps get the Pimms out and toast to the summer Sun?
 
DINNER PARTY MEDITERRANEAN TABLE FOOD
 

Take a Walk

 
Since growth is at its peak right now, this is a great time to take a walk and enjoy some of Mother Nature’s gifts. Get out there and enjoy everything summer has to offer, before long it will be harvest time and the plants will start to return to the earth, so take the opportunity while you can.
 
natuer landscape sunset wheat fields
 

Dance

 
In Celtic times, the pagan people would light a bonfire to dance around, now nobody’s saying you need a bonfire to do this, but just dancing around your living room, or even better, your garden, will bring in powerful and positive energies for you to take with you into the second half of the year.
 
summer solstice woman free freedom
 

Practice Gratitude

 
Everything around you exists because of the earth providing it to you, so most importantly out of everything at this time of year, we should say thank you. In whatever way you feel comfortable, thank the earth for providing you with shelter, food and light to keep you warm. Write, light a candle, say a prayer, give something back, whatever feels right to you and helps you to remember how beautiful life can be!

So, Happy Solstice, stargazers! I hope you have a wonderful time and remember that Summer is a time to enjoy – so get out there and enjoy it!

Much Love!

4 Ways Uranus in Taurus Will Rock Your World

ellie smiling in India
 
Uranus has just moved into Taurus, where it will be until mid-November, which means we have six months to harness this metamorphic energy and become the butterfly we know we deserve to be! This is a time of great change, in so many ways, but we need to be strong and flexible in order to reap the benefits.

So how will Uranus in Taurus affect us? You might experience one, or all of these, the energy will focus on the area of your life that needs the biggest makeover!
 
wolf night sky mystic
 

1. New Ways of Doing Things

 
Uranus encourages us to look at how we’re currently doing things and gives us the courage to do them differently as we need. Like a snow-globe, Uranus is here to shake things up and turn them upside down if that’s what will benefit you, but either way, you’ll start to notice a difference.

Over the next few months, you might find yourself trying out new things – whether that’s a new hobby, new recipe, new style, or bigger things, like a new way of thinking, or a different approach to dating.

You’ll no doubt notice changes outside your own life too as politics are rattled, new technologies are invented, and philosophies alter under the pressure of progress. The whole world is starting to shed its old ways to make room for the new.

Don’t be afraid to join in – change is always beneficial in the long run and you should welcome it with open arms to make the most of it.
 
skywatch-3384730_1920 couple bycicle night sky stars romantic mystical mystic telescope motorbike motorcycle
 

2. Rebellious Acts of Self-Worth

 
Uranus in Taurus will change the way we see ourselves and show us what we’re truly made of. In particular, how much we value ourselves will be a big focus.

More people will begin to speak their mind and social media has already begun to shift towards building people up rather than tearing them down.

Ask yourself if you value yourself as much as you should? Are you confident in who you are? Do you bite your tongue when someone upsets you, just to keep the peace, or have you ever thought you weren’t good enough for something, or someone?

We all have our down days, of course, but over the next few months, channel this great energy into believing that you are good enough, the energy of Uranus in Taurus will reward you for it.

3. A Shift in Relationships

 

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of Love, so it makes sense then that Uranus in Taurus would be here to mix things up in the dating department!

If you’re single, are you chasing something or someone that isn’t right for you? Or if you’re in a relationship, are there some patterns that could do with a bit of a shift?

No doubt we’ll see more revolutionary romances. We’ve already had the ground-breaking marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan (the New York Times called it “the dawn of a new era” – now if that’s not Uranus energy I don’t know what is!), and you might notice yourself beginning to follow your own heart, even if that means having to go against everything you’ve been made to believe.

Uranus will break the patterns of old and show you what you need to do to truly enjoy your relationships, all you have to do is pay attention.
 

human-1215160_1920 nightsky couple mystical mystic stars loe relationships romantic
 

4. Changing Wealth

 

And last but by no means least, our financial situations will be up for judgement! Uranus in Taurus will bring an erratic energy to the economy, our own personal bank accounts, the stock market, even new things like Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will break through into the norm.

In fact, “the norm” will be no longer beneath the dynamic energies of Uranus in Taurus. Everything is up for debate and ready to change. This can be good news, if you take advantage!

If you’ve been having money worries, new opportunities will arise to make that bank balance a little healthier looking, but you might have to start doing things a little differently!

Work hard. Trust that things will settle after some turbulence and put faith in your own ability to earn what you need – Uranus in Taurus will take care of the rest.
 

universe-1044107_1920 universe night nightsky stars starlight happy man
 

So! These might sound too hopeful to believe right now, but the trick is to become aware of the call to change. Uranus in Taurus will shift your life in so many ways, but you have to willing to take the leap!

Healing Crystals for Your Zodiac Sign by Ellie Rose Astrologer

Hands up who has a crystal problem? You’re not the only one! With so many beautiful crystals to choose from, it can be overwhelming knowing which (or how many!) to pick. Aside from the old trick of letting the stone choose you, did you know you can also pick your crystals based on your zodiac sign?

Use one of the following astrology crystals for the ultimate healing potential:

 

ellie smiling in India

Aries – Ruby, Garnet or Carnelian

All that fiery energy needs a deep red stone to balance it, making rubies, garnets and carnelians a great choice for an Aries. Hold a stone in your active hand (the one you write with) for increasing focus and stamina, so you can get all those amazing ideas out into the world with courage and dedication.

Taurus – Jade, Pyrite or Moss Agate

A creature of the earth, a Taurus needs stability and grounding to feel safe and happy, so keep a pyrite, jade or moss agate stone in your pocket to protect you from other people’s negativity and to help you to feel confident in yourself when you need it most.

For the Gemini with too many ideas, an emerald, aquamarine or turquoise will help you find direction and keep you on your path with clarity and self-confidence. Put a stone where you can see it to keep your thoughts focused on the task at hand.

Cancer – Moonstone, Quartz or Opal

Ruled by the Moon, moods can shift like the changing tides for a Cancer, so to ground those emotions, rub a moonstone, quartz or opal whenever you feel negativity, anxiety or any other undesirable feelings start to flood in.

Leo – Citrine, Tiger’s Eye or Gold

Though a Leo can be loud and proud, they can also suffer from bouts of low confidence. To help you reach successes you perhaps didn’t think you were capable of, wear a piece of jewellery with a citrine, tiger’s eye or something gold to give you a much-needed nudge in the right direction and the courage to shine your true colours.

Virgo – Amazonite, Sapphire or Kunzite

The incredible analytical powers of a Virgo can often leave them feeling stressed out and closed to their emotions. To balance your heart and mind, place an amazonite, sapphire or kunzite under your pillow and heal while you sleep!

Libra – Rose Quartz or Watermelon Tourmaline

The lovely Libra is kind to everyone around them, but perhaps sometimes not to themselves? To bring in that much needed self-confidence and self-love, hold a rose quartz or watermelon tourmaline against your heart for a minute or two before making big decisions, or when you’re feeling down.

Scorpio – Citrine, Malachite or Amethyst

For the deep and thoughtful Scorpio, carrying a citrine, malachite or amethyst with you at all times can transform any negative energies like anger or depression into happiness and peaceful tranquility. Just take out the stone when you need it and look carefully at it to help you focus on where your thoughts are taking you.

Sagittarius – Turquoise, Topaz or Atacamite

It’s hard to tell sometimes, for a Sagittarius, whether they’re chasing adventure, or running from a problem. To ground yourself in the real world and bring clarity and focus of mind, hold a turquoise, topaz or atacamite between both hands whenever you feel yourself beginning to spin too high again.

Capricorn – Aventurine, Cinnabar or Magnetite

You’ve got big dreams, Capricorn, so to see them manifested in reality, whisper your goals to an aventurine, cinnabar or magnetite – they’re very good at bringing in wealth and helping you have the strength to bring your epic plans to life.

Aquarius – Fluorite, Amethyst or Onyx

An Aquarius is an insightful soul, constantly observing and analyzing their environment, so when things get a little overwhelming, try meditating for ten minutes while holding a piece of fluorite, amethyst or onyx for positivity and mental balance.

Pisces – Quartz, Labradorite or Aquamarine

Your compassion is your strength, Pisces, but sometimes you can feel things a little too strongly, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and getting lost in your own head. To train your powers of intuition and give you emotional strength, carry a quartz, labradorite or aquamarine in your left hand and focus on its healing energies.

Ellie Rose Astrologer in Rishikesh, India

Allow me to update you on my exotic and enlightening travels in India! I was last in Goa (read my earlier post here), where I stayed for several weeks enjoying the beautiful seaside and studying Vedic Astrology with a well-known Hindu spiritual expert. Now I have decided to move further up north to the city of Rishikesh in order to escape from the heat and humidity that this time of year brings to Goa.

After a long journey, we’re finally settled in Rishikesh – the holy city of yoga! It’s crrrazy here, a lot like Varanasi, which we visited last year. They’re both very important Hindu pilgrimage places so there’s lots of ashrams, or holy men (and fake holy men – but I learnt my lesson with them last year!) and the magnificent River Ganges – which I swam in yesterday (it’s very clean up here in the mountains, as opposed to the famous murky waters of Varanasi) – it’s meant to be spiritual and cleansing and it was certainly very refreshing so I might try and make a habit of it!

We stayed for the weekend in the thick of it, but I very quickly got tired of the constant noise and commotion! So today we’ve relocated up away from it all in a lovely little leafy residential area which is wayyy quieter and more peaceful!

I’ve included you a couple of pictures of Rishikesh and two of the famous Beatles Ashram which we visited at the weekend – it’s INCREDIBLE! Built in an ancient/futuristic hybrid style in the 60s, the Beatles lived there for a month, and also wrote some of their most famous songs there. It’s all abandoned now, and covered in incredible graffiti – definitely well worth a Google if you don’t know it!

Studying Vedic Astrology and Traveling in India – Ellie Rose Astrologer Reports

 

What is Vedic Astrology, plus My Travels in India!

 

ellie smiling in India
 
Hi there stargazers, Ellie Rose here! Today I’ve got a bit of an exotic topic for you – an insider’s glimpse at my travels in India, studying Vedic Astrology! You might have spotted some of my tropical locations in my horoscope videos and wondered what life is like here, so I thought I’d give you a little info! But first, what on Earth is “Vedic Astrology”?
 

What is Vedic Astrology?

Vedic Astrology Zodiac Signs

 

Vedic Astrology (or “Jyotish”) is India’s system of astrology. It’s been around for thousands of years, and is very similar to the Western Astrology we all know and love, but also very different in a lot of ways!

The first thing we notice is that the zodiac is in the shape of a rectangle, as opposed to the circle we’re used to seeing, and there are still 12 zodiac signs, but in Vedic Astrology, they have different names – what’s yours?

Another thing to notice is that sometimes your sign will actually change. This is not necessarily right or wrong, it’s just that Vedic Astrology is calculated differently to Western Astrology.

Vedic Astrology is based on something called the Sidereal Zodiac, which is calculated using constellations of “fixed” stars, whereas our familiar Western Astrology system takes into consideration the movement of the seasons, like the Spring Equinox – complicated already right?!
 
There are lots of other important differences, in particular, the spirituality side of Vedic Astrology is very deep and interesting, with a lot of emphasis on reincarnation, past lives and karma – all really exciting stuff that we don’t tend to go into as much in Western Astrology!
 

So, Why did I come to Study Vedic Astrology?

 
ellie explaining beach
 
I’ve always loved India as a country, and this is the second time I’ve travelled here. Everyone always talks about India as being very spiritual, and it does have some beautifully wise spiritual traditions and teachings, but more importantly it’s a place that challenges you to grow and to be more patient, open and understanding of life in all its glory – something that a good astrologer needs in spades!

But of course, aside from my desire to visit India again, I wanted to come and study Vedic Astrology, so that I could widen my knowledge of astrology as a whole.

In my own astrology practice, I read using decans, which are not used so much in modern Western Astrology but are very important in Vedic Astrology (called Nakshtra rather than decans), and were popular in ancient Egypt, Arabic and Babylonian astrology and other older forms of stargazing.

A system of decans basically splits the 12 signs into 36 to give a more in-depth reading.

What’s it like to Study in India?

 
Very hot! Haha well that is the first thing I would say! I’m currently in Goa, which is in South India. Sometimes the temperatures can reach 38° which doesn’t help with focusing, and my teacher is quite strict, and expects me to learn some very complicated stuff! Luckily, I’ve had plenty of training in Western Astrology, so I could skip some of the more tedious bits like calculating charts (a very mathematical task!).

There aren’t really proper astrology “schools” out here, so it is just a case of finding an astrologer who will teach you, and it’s really important to make sure you like your teacher. I’ve been working with mine for a couple of months now, he’s very serious but very knowledgeable, but I feel like I’m ready to move on now.

Astrology is such a complicated system, all built from symbols and intuitions, so I feel it’s important to learn from many different teachers, so you can start to find your own systems.

Just like travel itself, there are so many new experiences to add to astrology, and I feel the two go hand in hand perfectly. I’m not only learning about Vedic Astrology, but about travel, life, people, and myself!

Come join me on my adventures with my weekly horoscopes and regular blog posts!

12 Ways to Celebrate Easter According to Your Zodiac Sign

Happy Easter, my lovely stargazers! I’m sure you know by now that Easter is a very astrological event tied up in the equinox and the return of the Sun. So, to help you celebrate, here are 12 ways to celebrate Easter according to your zodiac sign – but by all means try more than one of these as a spiritual alternative to chocolate bunnies (which of course you’ll want too).
 
happy easter
 

Aries: Start a new project

 
The Spring Equinox and Easter mark a time of new beginnings and since this is your birthday season, Aries, what better way to celebrate than to start something new? New projects or hobbies can often make us feel nervous, but all the fluffy chicks and new-born lambs can surely provide hope and inspiration for some of that famous fiery Aries passion!

Taurus: Get back to nature

 
In the northern hemisphere, this time of year is when the new buds start budding and flowers bloom again after a long cold winter. Since Taurus is an earth sign, you’re most relaxed when hanging out with Mother Nature, so make sure to find time to enjoy her gifts and celebrate the new season of spring with some walking, picnicking (if the weather permits!), photography or even a spot of tree hugging!

Gemini: Spread some cheer

 
Easter Sunday usually falls on or around the 1st April, which is also known as ‘April Fool’s Day’. This ties directly into the first major arcana card of the Tarot, The Fool. The Fool is the beginning of a journey and represents the childlike innocence we have when at the start of something – we’re yet to become wise or jaded with experience! Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the trickster, get your April Fools on and spread a little laughter this Easter!

Cancer: Worship the moon

 
While Easter is very much about the return of the Sun/Son of Christ, the moon also plays a huge part in the tradition. Easter Sunday always happens on the Sunday after the first Full Moon of Spring. This is why the date can shift around so much from year to year! Since your ruling planet is the Moon, you’re better off focussing on the lunar energies, rather than solar, so for a pagan-style Easter tradition, activate the introspective energies of the moon by journaling, charging your crystals or even just reflecting in her pearly glow from a window.

Leo: Worship the Sun

 
As opposed to Cancer, your ruling sign is the Sun, and since Easter is about the resurrection of our big fiery star (or a certain religious icon), Leos will feel happiest celebrating Easter by embracing the Sun. Dancing, singing or creating will get your sunshiney self in a celebratory mood, so why not take advantage of your extra days off and get busy!

Virgo: Celebrate the feminine

 
With all this talk of Jesus and the Sun, it can be easy to forget that, according to the story, Jesus was conceived around this time of year by the Virgin Mary. Since Virgo is the sign of the virgin, for you, Easter should be a time to remember the feminine side of life; the themes of birth and nurturing. Care for animals or play with children, beautify your home or yourself, feed your family, or let your mother or the important women in your life know that they’re awesome.

Libra: Do a full moon spell

 
Since Easter always has to follow the first full moon of Spring, and Spring is always in Aries season, the first full moon will usually be in your sign: Libra. So, for your Easter tradition, let the Moon show you what needs to be left behind in your life, ready to enter a new year. Make a list of things that aren’t serving you, read it aloud, then burn it (carefully!) to activate the Sun’s fiery energies of rebirth.

Scorpio: Transform the old into new

 
Just like Jesus himself, a Scorpio is the master of transformation, and that’s what Easter is all about! This can be a spiritual kind of transformation, similar to Libra, or it can be as simple as spring cleaning your home, redecorating or up-cycling some old clothes or furniture. Perhaps there’s even a relationship that could do with a little spicing up? Use your phoenix-like abilities to transform something this Easter, even if it’s just turning a plain old egg into a brightly painted one!

Sagittarius: Learn about other cultures

 
Easter isn’t just a western thing, there are so many other cultures that celebrate the beginning of spring (read about more of them here!), so in true Sag spirit, why not learn a little about some of them, or perhaps even plan a trip based on your findings. The whole year lies ahead of you, a little planning and fantasizing about your next adventure is a great way to celebrate a new season.

Capricorn: Set the ball rolling

 
Since Capricorn season, the plants have been planning and growing roots beneath the ground, much like yourself! So now the Sun has returned to his glory, it’s time for you to do the same. Get out your pen and pad and write down what you want to achieve in 2018 and break it down into small, scalable goals. Then pick one and start – the seasons are on your side!

Aquarius: Celebrate with friends

 
Jesus had his disciples, the Sun has the Moon, and the Easter Bunny has… dozens of chocolate-crazed kids? Easter is a time of togetherness, and since you are a pro at bringing people together, you’ll feel happiest surrounded by people, perhaps for lunch, a picnic or even an Easter egg hunt! If you’re feeling extra sociable, get out and volunteer your time for an Easter chat with someone who wouldn’t otherwise get the chance.

Pisces: Ask the angels for guidance

 
Whether you’re a Christian or not, Easter is a very spiritual time of year, and one that many cultures have celebrated throughout time. Since your intuition is strong, why not borrow the Christian concept of angels for a meditation sesh, and ask them for some guidance in moving forward with the seasons. You don’t have to be religious to get advice from above!
