It’s coming up to the summer holidays, and us astro-lovers don’t just want an average trip away, we want magic and mystery, romance and adventure. So, here are 12 mystical holiday destinations for your zodiac sign – that aren’t even that far from home!
 

Aries – Explore Ancient Dubrovnik

Walk the medieval walls of Croatia’s famous city, Dubrovnik. Perfect for an Aries who loves their ancient history, Dubrovnik is a winding cobblestone maze of ornate architecture, crumbling churches and tiny cafés. For the adventurous Aries, you’ll find the surrounding area perfect for hiking, and the beaches prime for some water sports.
 

Taurus – Romance in Tuscany

Next on the zodiac sign’s holiday list is the Taurus and we need just three things to make it a great trip: beautiful scenery, incredible food and a bit of romance, so Tuscany has it all. Sprawling vineyards and rolling green hills dotted with poppies and ancient towns where you can sit in a sun-drenched square feasting on fresh pizza and feeling like you’re in a romance novel.

 

Gemini – Uncover Mysteries in Turkey

The ancient site of Goblekli Tepe in Turkey is said to be the oldest surviving temple on the planet, making it even more exciting than the pyramids. Use your great Gemini combo of logic and intuition to try and theorise a story for this place – many suggest it was built with the help of an alien civilisation, so not your average holiday destination!
 

Cancer – Spot Unicorns in Spain

Not many people know about the mysterious Otzarreta Forest in Spain, but once you see it your magic-loving Cancer side will never forget its mysterious beauty. Twisted ancient trees, silvery fog and trickling streams are the perfect location for some hiking or unicorn spotting!

Leo – Watch Stars in Cannes

For a Leo, unicorn spotting could get old quick, so why not a bit of star watching? Cannes in the French Riviera tends to be full of celebrity holidaymakers, providing a lot of fun and games for us normal folk! Sip wine in fancy bars or take an afternoon trip on a yacht – just don’t forget to get that impressive holiday selfie while you’re there.

Virgo – Find Fairies in the Black Forest

Germany’s Black Forest is about as earthy as you can get, so perfect for a Virgo who indulges in a bit of tree-hugging from time to time! Not only is it beautiful, but the Black Forest is also the location of a number of fairy tales and is said to be home to witches, nymphs and even fairies, so there’s magic in these woods too!

Libra – Seek Bliss in Santorini

The beautiful Santorini in Greece is one of the most “Instagrammable” European destinations for its dazzling white and blue architecture. While it’s not as mysterious as the rest, it’s known for putting people into blissful trances over its incredible scenery, delicious fresh food and exquisite accommodation – so the ideal holiday for a bliss-seeking Libra?

Scorpio – Learn Mythology in Athens

Any Scorpio will love a trip to Athens in Greece, discovering the ancient mythology, interpreting gorgeous symbolism and strolling around sprawling ruins on a balmy afternoon. There’s such a rich history here that has influenced the rest of the world, complete with magic, horror, bravery and triumph.

Sagittarius – Connect with the Ocean in the Algarve

If you’re a Sagittarius and you haven’t been to Portugal yet, you’re missing out! Along the gorgeous coast of the Algarve are a myriad of surf schools just waiting to get you riding those big blue waves. Even though you’re not a water sign, any Sag will surely love an adventurous chance to commune with the ocean – just watch out for mermaids!

Capricorn – Go Wild in Plitvice

Another of our earth signs, the Capricorn, deserves an even more impressive encounter with nature in Plitvice National Park in Croatia. This isn’t just any national park, set in sprawling forests, this incredible destination has giant lakes and cascading waterfalls, meadows of orchids and excesses of wildlife to explore by foot, kayak or climbing – you won’t find a deeper connection to Mother Nature.

Aquarius – Road-trip to Reykjavik

For the Aquarius who wants something a little different, a road trip to Iceland will kick that wonder into gear. This icy playground is home to waterfalls and glaciers, giant geysers and geothermal pools that look like something from another planet. All you need is a van, a camera, and something a little warmer for those potential snowstorms!
 

 

Pisces – See Sacred Sites in Ireland

Get all spiritual in beautiful Ireland, where a Pisces can fascinate themselves with sacred sites, pagan mythologies and all sorts of mysterious locations. If you’re the outdoorsy type, Ireland is as green as it gets, making it great for hiking, meditating with Mother Nature and a bit of expansive yoga before a delicious pub lunch.

What Your Rising Sign Says About You

ellie rose astrologer in thailand

What does your rising star sign say about you? Your rising sign, or “ascendant” is the constellation that was rising above the horizon at the time you were born. It explains how we act in the world and the way other people see us, kind of like the mask we wear. Because of this, it’s the rising star sign that’s easiest to guess – so give it a go, who do you know with each of these rising star signs?

Aries Rising Star Sign

You have a way of doing things like no other, in fact, you prefer not to be like everyone else if you can help it! Trying something new isn’t so scary to you and you’ll take risks if you know it’s for a good cause. You fight for what’s important to you, including your own independence, which can get you into trouble, but you’re a big kid at heart really!

Taurus Rising Star Sign

You’re strong in body and mind and not easily swayed by other people’s opinions or demands. You see the world in your own way and refuse to do things that aren’t in line with your own personal values. This makes you a reliable friend and dedicated partner, though perhaps at times a little stubborn! Your patience and gentle way make other people feel safe around you and able to be themselves.

Gemini Rising Star Sign

You’re inquisitive and always seeking out new information, meeting new people and thinking about so many subjects – if something interests you, you’ll try to work it out, but this can mean you easily get bored of one thing (or person!). You’re fun to be around and friends love to chat with you. You’re a great guest as you really know how to lighten a mood and make people smile.

Cancer Rising Star Sign

To strangers, you can seem a little quiet or distant at first, but once they get to know you, they’ll find you warm, quirky and fiercely loyal. In fact, you care more about those you love than yourself and will happily put their needs first. You like to be comfortable, especially when it comes to taking action, so you’ll often suss out a situation before moving forward, making you cautious yet strategic.

Leo Rising Star Sign

If your friends had to vote who’s the most fabulous, you’d easily win. You have your own signature style and people tend to notice you, however, you don’t take yourself too seriously and are happiest when playing and joking. You’re least happy when being disrespected or ignored, but you forgive easily, have the biggest heart and warm to people quickly and fondly.

Virgo Rising Star Sign

At first glimpse, you could be shy or perhaps even stand-offish, however, you’re one of the deepest and most caring of all the signs, as well as the sexiest! You keep your cards close to your chest, but when you connect with someone, you’re as loyal as they come. You’re the last person to ever be rude or inconsiderate and expect others to do the same, but you’ll happily give your last chocolate to those you love.

Libra Rising Star Sign

Look up the word “charming” in the dictionary and it will surely have your picture underneath! You really know all the right things to say and you look gorgeous while doing it. You have a naturally easy way about you, but behind the scenes you’re always thinking. You value fairness and harmony and no one can ever win an argument against you, however, when things don’t go as expected you can feel unsettled until you learn to trust your own decisions.

Scorpio Rising Star Sign

Out of all the rising star signs, you’re the easiest to guess as your intensity is hard to miss. When people talk with you it feels like you’re looking straight through them which can make some people uncomfortable and others drawn to you. Despite first appearances, you’re actually light-hearted and deeply caring, but you only accept those with sincerity in their heart, and boy can you tell the difference!

Sagittarius Rising Star Sign

You’re liked by many for your honesty, fun-loving nature and generosity. You’re the person most would love to have by their side on a road trip or adventure as you’re a pro at conversation and know how to keep the vibes high. However, there is such a thing as too much honesty and sometimes it’s better to be grounded and practical, even if you usually have fantastic luck!

Capricorn Rising Star Sign

You’re impressive, you look good, and you know how to win people over, whoever they may be. But it’s not just outer appearances that impress, you’re also talented, dedicated and ambitious, but sometimes you can get a little caught up in what you’re achieving (or not achieving) and you can forget to just “be”. Those close to you know that you’re as loyal as they come and underneath it all you’re a softy really!

Aquarius Rising Star Sign

If you weren’t the cool kid at school, you certainly are now, at least in the way that you don’t actually care what anyone thinks of you! Everything you do is coloured with your own individual style and you’re happiest connecting with people who think like you or exchanging ideas with those who think differently. While you’re not the most comfortable in the spotlight, you make a great motivator and can find a solution to any problem.

Pisces Rising Star Sign

You’re creative to the core and imagination is your lifeblood. When you’re not creating or thinking creatively you feel stuck and dull, like all the colour ran out of the world. Because of this, you can be a little unpredictable, since you need to feel stimulated in order to partake fully in the world. However, you are deep and sensitive and always try to truly understand people.

Asteroid Juno Shows Who You Will Marry

 
ellie rose astrologer in thailand
 
Have you ever wondered why so many people get married in June? Well, it’s not just the nice weather, it’s also because of Juno, the Roman Goddess of love and marriage, from whom we get the month’s name. She also lends her name to an asteroid, which, in the birth chart, can tell who your long-term partner will be!
 

Roman Goddess

Juno, or Hera, as she was known to the Greeks, was the wife of Jupiter, the King of the Gods. She was the most important wife in all of Olympus, the Queen, and symbolised monogamy, childbirth, women’s sexuality and grace.
 
ancient Greek culture
 
In addition, Juno represents money, which is where the word originated – Juno’s temple was called “Moneta”. According to ancient literature, the first money was made in this temple, and as the King’s trustworthy wife, Juno was entrusted as the protector of wealth. Since marriage or long-term partnership often includes a merging of funds, it ties in nicely with this symbolism.
 
ancient Greek sculpture and mythology
 

Juno in the Birth Chart

In your birth chart, Juno shows the characteristics of your long-term partner – what kind of person they will be. This isn’t necessarily going to be your “type”, as what we want is usually defined by the position of Venus and Mars (and sometimes not that good for us in the long run!).

Juno is more about what we need in a partner, what is in fact good for us, and hopefully, what we will eventually get. This asteroid shows us what the dynamics of our long-term relationship need to be, who we can trust (like Jupiter trusting his faithful wife) and how we might feel with them.
 

Find out about Your Partner

Below you can find a short description of your ideal partner, according to where the asteroid, Juno, is in your birth-chart. Bare in mind, of course, that a lot of people don’t end up with the sort of person they “need”, but go for the excitement of their Venus or Mars sign (this is what draws a lot of us ladies to the “badboy” type, while Juno protests to choose a different type!).

To find where Juno is in your birth chart, go to www.astro.com and put in your details at “extended chart selection”. Before creating the chart, scroll down to “additional objects” and select: JUNO. Then “click here to show the chart”.
 

Aries

This person will be full of life, whether that’s physically, as in doing sports or outdoor activities together, pursuing a thriving career or just being the kind of person who everyone invites to the party. The two of you will be adventurous, competitive even, as you need someone who can keep up with you, as well as give you space when you need it.
 
young girl flying among the feathers like a bird
 

Taurus

This partner will be loyal and reliable, someone who you can trust to be there when you need them, perhaps with good advice, a sensual back rub or some cake. They really know what you need and are willing to be there forever to provide it. Both of you will need a stable environment, so someone who’s dedicated to their goals and creating a material world that you can both enjoy will be best.
 

Gemini

You need to be able to connect your mind with another mind, so your partner will be someone who’s both intelligent and chatty – doesn’t matter what the topic is, as long as you can bounce the ball of conversation back and forth. They’ll not be too serious about life and more light-hearted, curious and playful, as this is what you need to feel stimulated and carefree.

Cancer

You’ll find someone who’s in touch with their sensitive side and isn’t afraid of emotions, commitment and all those things that a lot of other people shy away from. Emphasis is on family, whether that’s kids or dogs or just a parrot, the tribe comes first. You’ll both be happiest snuggled up, wherever that is doesn’t really matter as long as you’re together.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter_(mythology)
 

Leo

You need to feel that your partner respects you and thinks you’re awesome (and generous with the compliments!) but you also need someone who sees you for who you are and recognises that you are vulnerable sometimes. This person will always have your back and make you feel protected from the world and from yourself at times. You can trust them to understand you, support you and you’ll happily do the same and more for them.

Virgo

You’ll find a partner who is self-sufficient – you don’t want to have to babysit someone and capability really ticks your boxes! Someone who is thoughtful, pays attention to all the little things about you and really listens when you talk. You’ll both want to make sure the other is OK, so will be tuned into the tiniest details and quirks.
 

Libra

You need to be able to communicate with your partner, but in a way that’s harmonious and focused on understanding, so you’ll end up with someone who’s fair, calm and confident at speaking with others, charming even. Your friends and family will love them and the two of you can stay up till the early hours talking about life, art, philosophy and morals.
 

Scorpio

You’ll find someone who transforms you on the inside. You can share your deepest, darkest secrets and trust that not only will they never tell another soul, they’ll also understand you and open up the same to you like no one ever has before. Your partnership will be intense, obsessive even, you want to merge into one another so you can come up for air changed.
 

Sagittarius

A partner who is adventurous and excited about life. Someone honest (sometimes brutally so) and inspired. You’ll both want to explore – whether that’s through travel, each other, or to the inner world of spirituality. Whether or not you share the same interests, you’ll meet someone who wants to keep on learning and growing, like you!
 
Romantic evening. Loving couple kissing. Night in city. Meteor in night sky
 

Capricorn

You’ll find someone who’s stable and capable. You need to feel your partner has things under control, so you’ll go for someone you can rely on, especially in the public eye – you have to be able to trust them not to make you look bad! They’ll be ambitious, not just in their career, but in climbing that mountain, reading that pile of books or creating the perfect home together.
 

Aquarius

Your mind craves stimulation, so your long-term partner will need to be someone who has a serious hobby or passion, something a little different than your average. They’ll be fun and interesting and your relationship will be easy-going and calm. If problems arise, you’ll be able to talk things through and adjust to find a new way that suits you both.

Pisces

You need to merge with your partner in a way that feels spiritual, so you’ll end up with someone who’s as emotionally deep as you, the two of you want to feel like one. They’ll be someone who is creative and compassionate, understanding you more than you understand yourself sometimes, but perhaps getting a little lost in each other sometimes. This is a cosmic love that transcends the boring routines of everyday!

So, does this describe your current partner? Or if you’re single, is this what you look for? We’d love to hear more from you, so please send us any of your comments using the box below. And don’t forget to check out my weekly video horoscopes and regular astrology and lifestyle articles!

What Saturn Retrograde Can Teach Us About Karma

 

ellie rose astrologer in thailand

 

It’s Saturn Retrograde right now, so time to focus on any big life lessons that can seem tough but are usually trying to nudge us towards our ultimate selves. This theme fits in nicely with Saturn’s nickname: The Lord of Karma, since the cause and effect of our actions is what both Saturn, and the laws of Karma rule over.

 

Saturn Retrograde and Karma

 

The Saturn Retrograde 411

So, before we get into a juicy discussion on Karmic influences, let’s talk about Saturn Retrograde – what exactly is it?

Saturn is a slow-moving planet with a 29 year orbit. Every year it stations retrograde for around four months. This basically means that when we pass Saturn, it looks as if it’s moving backwards – a bit like when another train pulls out of the station and it feels like the one you’re on is moving backwards. This is kind of like a retrograde.

This year Saturn is Retrograde from April 29th to September 18th, giving us four and a half fabulous months of focus on our responsibilities, privileges and the progress we’re seeing (or not seeing!) in life.

This particular retrograde is in the sign of Capricorn, which is awesome because Capricorn’s ruler is Saturn! Having a retrograde planet in its own sign is so much more beneficial than any other placement – so let’s find out what the meaning is so we can make the most!

 The Lord of Karma

Saturn represents the laws we govern society by, as well as the outcome of our actions. So, for example, if we work really hard, we might get a promotion, but if we keep skipping work, we’ll likely get fired. This is Saturn energy, as well as a good introduction to the way Karma works!

 

meditation yoga karma Buddhism Hinduism Saturn Retrograde zodiac

What is Karma?

Karma is one of the most well-known spiritual principles in Hinduism and Buddhism – no doubt you’ve heard of it? It means “action” or “deed” and refers to a system of reincarnation, where your intentions and deeds effect the quality of your next life. So, if you have positive intentions and try to do good, you might luck out and be a wealthy landowner with a loving family in the next life. If you have negative intentions and you do bad things, maybe you’ll come back as a snail…

Except it’s not quite as simple as that (nothing ever is right?). Actually, Karma is not so much to do with “good” and “bad”, since those concepts don’t really exist within a non-dualist religion like Hinduism or Buddhism.

In these religions, everything is one, so pairs of opposites like good/bad, black/white, masculine/feminine, are actually two halves of a whole and one cannot exist without the other. Since everything has both aspects, we can look at something and see good or bad, depending on our own perspective. Something I like, might seem awful to you, and vice versa.

So, if we’re throwing out labels like good and bad, how does something like Karma, which seems like a reward system to our western minds, work?

 

meditation yoga karma Buddhism Hinduism Saturn Retrograde zodiac

How Karma Works?

Karma takes into stock the energy of each intention, thought, word and action. It’s less about what is good and what is bad, and more about matching that energy to a corresponding energy. This might seem confusing right now, so I’ll give an example:

Let’s say you’re an Ebenezer Scrooge kinda character and you value money over everything else in life, including your own nearest and dearest. The energy that you’ve created in this life will carry over into the next and you’ll need to detach from it or clear it in some way. Your next life could see you living in the depths of poverty, so you have an opportunity to learn the value of community instead of being distracted by money again – that is, if you don’t work it out in this life first.

 

humbug michael caine

 

The point is to realise your lessons and overcome any attachments. These attachments can be beliefs, habits or attitudes. They help or hinder you and effect the direction and quality of your current life.

If you have a positive mindset and do good things, that energy stays with you into the next life and you’ll be born into a positive environment with people doing good things for you. So, while Karma can dictate the kind of experience you have, it’s not so much a system of punishment or reward, but rather a way of you carrying energy from one life to the next.

 

Saturn Retrograde and Karma

 

Of course, energy can become “stuck”, and this is why we suffer problems that seem to be so deeply rooted, we don’t know what else could have caused them but a past life experience.

We carry our baggage with us through each life, and sometimes we even encounter the same people with whom we need to clear some karma – perhaps we left them in a past life and now it’s their turn to leave us? Maybe we took care of them and now they’ve returned to help us in some way. Even the stranger who holds a door open for us could be someone repaying some deed from a past life – clearing their own karmic debt and moving closer to Moksha, escaping the cycle of death and rebirth known as Samsara.

 

time angel night sky starry

 

So How Does This Connect to Saturn Retrograde?

This is super relevant during Saturn Retrograde because the Lord of Karma is moving slower and giving us chance to reassess our current actions and see how they might be affecting us in this life and the next. It’s like we’ve been given an opportunity to see the road ahead and perhaps adjust our driving technique lest we see that we’re on the road to becoming a reincarnated snail.

Over the next 4.5 months, circumstances will arise that show us where our energy is “stuck”. Maybe we keep attracting the same situations into our lives – perhaps we always end up with lovers that leave or treat us badly, perhaps we repeatedly run into money troubles. If you find that you keep encountering the same hurdle, it’s time to confront it and clear the energy.

 

 

Whether or not you believe in Karma, Saturn Retrograde is a great time to iron out the kinks in our lives and clear the way for new, positive experiences to come in. You don’t have to keep making the same choices, time after time, life after life.

To make the most of this time, get down to the root of each problem by writing about the “why” of your issue. Why do you go for that kind of partner? Who do they remind you of? Why do you spend more than you make? Why do you think you can’t do better?

Since both Saturn and karma reward hard work, use this time to get down to business in some way – working out your baggage is a great start, using your skills to improve your finances and career is another leap in the right direction.

Every action has a reaction – this much is true. So, figure out how to take better action, step by step, and pretty soon, you’ll see the energies align for you to start receiving better too.

May your Saturn Retrograde be enlightening and your karmic lessons be gentle!

Be sure to keep up to date with your star and planet alignments in my weekly horoscopes here.

Much love,

What Saturn Retrograde Can Teach Us About Karma

 

Mother’s Day Messages Based on Her Zodiac Sign

ellie rose astrologer in thailand

Our mothers brought us into this world, complete with all our astrological placements, so if there’s one day that’s perfect for celebrating life, it’s Mother’s Day! To celebrate the one who gave us life in this big beautiful universe, tell her something that she’ll love, based on her zodiac sign…

Aries

An Aries likes to know they’re appreciated for who they are so tell your mum what it is that makes her special – does she have a winning smile? Is she loved by everyone? Is she really good at something that no other person can compare to? Tell her what it is that makes her awesome.

Taurus

A Taurus loves to care for everyone’s pleasures so your mum might be a great cook, or perhaps she’s always there physically with a hug and a warm, safe space for you to return to. Tell her how much you appreciate the ways that she provides for you, the nest she’s created for you or perhaps how awesome her cakes are!

Gemini

A Gemini likes to know they are heard so instead of telling your mum something, spend some time just listening to her. Ask her how her day was or strike up a conversation about something she’s interested in. You’ll show your appreciation by connecting with her mentally.

Cancer

Similar to a Taurus, the Cancer loves to provide safety and security to those they love, except where a Taurus is more focussed on providing materially, a Cancer wants to make sure those they love are supported emotionally. Tell your mum how she makes you feel – safe? Secure? Loved?

Leo

Leos love nothing more than to feel seen and respected so tell your mum how beautiful she is, how good she is at something or better still, take her somewhere where she can show you these things! A trip out or activity where she can compete, create or somehow show her skills and passions off will make her day.

Virgo

A Virgo likes to know that everything is under control and running smoothly, but often they’re a little overwhelmed by their endless to-do lists, so do your mum a favour and do her a favour! Ask her if there are any jobs she needs help with or what you can do to make her life easier.

Libra

Libras love company so get your whole family together to do something for your mum. Maybe throw a dinner party where she can show off her hostess skills or just organise for people to pop over for a cup of tea, she’ll appreciate that you gave her the chance to feel close to everyone she loves.

Scorpio

A Scorpio’s deepest need is to trust and connect emotionally so to make your mum feel special this Mother’s Day, just be there for her in whatever way she needs. Listen to her, make her a cup of tea, ask her how she feels today then be patient until she shows what it is she needs most, it might just be a hug.

Sagittarius

For your Sagittarius mum, let her tell some stories as this is something a Sag does best! Ask her what her teenage years were like, what her first job was, talk about love, spirituality or philosophy and ask her opinion – she’ll love the opportunity to talk about what she knows and you’ll no doubt learn something about her too!

Capricorn

A Capricorn likes to be appreciated for how far they’ve come in life. This doesn’t always have to be financially, it could be that they’ve overcome some life hurdle or changed their circumstances, got a great education against the odds. Tell your mum how proud you are of her and how she inspires you to do better.

Aquarius

Something out of the ordinary will capture your mum’s heart this Mother’s Day so try and take her out somewhere you’ve never been before or do something fun around the house. Maybe play a board game to get her mind ticking or make something together to get the creativity flowing.

Pisces

A Pisces gives so much that sometimes things can get a little imbalanced so this Mother’s Day, make sure you pamper your mum and tell her how much you appreciate everything she has done for you. A card with a heartfelt message and some flowers will go a long way to making her feel loved.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mums out there – you are all special in your very own way!

Year of the Pig: Chinese Zodiac

ellie rose astrologer in thailand
 
The Chinese New Year is on 5th February and for 2019 we’re entering the year of the Pig! Find out more about your Chinese Zodiac and how this year will play out according to the Chinese zodiac system.
 

Year of the Pig: Chinese Zodiac


 
Year of the Pig: Chinese Zodiac

 

2019 is the year of the “earth pig”, the next one will be a “metal pig” in 2031. The pig is the last animal in the Chinese Zodiac so represents a time where we need to look back over the last 12 years and see how far we’ve come – celebrate our successes and see where we need to make changes to improve.
 
People born in the year of the pig are said to be friendly, generous and fun-loving. They appreciate comfort and tend to be happy go lucky in life, with abundance flowing to them easily. This will reflect on 2019, where there’ll be an emphasis on working hard at our goals, but also balancing that with having a good time.

We’ll need to watch out for people who might take advantage of our good-natured generosity and stay focused on our goals instead of getting distracted with indulgence or too much of a good thing.
 
How will the Year of the Pig affect your Chinese Zodiac sign?

*Remember that the Chinese year runs from February to February so if you’re born in January, you’ll be the previous sign.

 

Rat

(*1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008)

Use your natural inquisitive nature this year to take your career into new directions as well as trying new hobbies and perhaps even learning a new skill. Your crafty nature will bring you exciting possibilities.

 

Year of the Pig Chinese Zodiac
 
Ox

(*1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)

Keep that slow and steady attitude going with your eyes on the prize and the year of the pig could be seriously beneficial for you in the material world! Promotions or extra cash could be on the cards if you work for it.

 

Year of the Pig Chinese Zodiac
 
Tiger

(*1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010)

You might need to adjust in some way as the year of the pig is more about humility and happy-go-lucky connections than your tiger power! Apply your intensity to work and aim to go with the flow.

 

Year of the Pig Chinese Zodiac
Rabbit

(*1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)

This year you’ll have more confidence in your abilities and find yourself making useful and positive connections. Last year might have been a bit worrying but all that will improve as long as you give it your all.

 

Year of the Pig Chinese Zodiac
 
Dragon

Under the influence of the calm and content pig, you’ll probably find yourself looking at things from different angles and perhaps even embarking on something out of your comfort zone. You can relax this year so why not try something different?

Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon 2019: All You Need to Know

ellie rose astrologer in thailand
 
On January 20th to 21st there will be a Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon. This is an exciting time both astronomically and astrologically. Read on to find out all you need to know about January’s Blood Moon Eclipse.
 

When and Where Can I See the Blood Moon?

 
People from Europe and America will be able to see the full eclipse, which will happen from GMT 05:16 and will last for 3 hours 17 minutes – so if you’re not enough of an early riser to catch the whole thing, you might be able to catch the second half before the Sun comes up in England.
 
Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon
 

What if I Miss It? When will the Eclipse Happen Again?

 
Unfortunately, this Blood Moon is a rare one and won’t happen again now until May 26, 2021. However, that one won’t be as visible from Europe, so best get out there for this one!
 
Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon
 

Why is the Lunar Eclipse Red?

 
A lunar eclipse always happens at a full moon, when the Sun and Moon are opposite, and the Sun’s light illuminates the full face of the Moon. Because the orbit of the Moon isn’t an exact circle, when we have an eclipse the Earth’s shadow covers the Moon (either fully as in the “Full Lunar Eclipse” or partially as in a “Partial Lunar Eclipse”). As the Moon moves out of the Earth’s shadow, the shadow crosses, eventually leaving us with a regular full moon.
The reason for the red colour is that the Sun’s light is refracted through particles floating in the Earth’s atmosphere like volcanic dust, meteor pieces and other bits and bobs – making the Sun’s light a lot dimmer and causing the “Blood Moon” effect!

What About the Astrology? What Does the Blood Moon Mean?

 
The January 21st Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of Leo and falls at 1°, meaning this is a time for change and focus on ourselves!

This particular eclipse is square Uranus so you could feel a little rattled or experience sudden changes to your routine or even restless energy that makes you want to break free of your usual ways. Emotional outbursts might be on the cards so you’ll need to treat yourself and others with an extra helping of patience and understanding.

However, with the Leo energy, leaning into kindness, generosity and creative expression will provide you with an outlet for any ups and downs and perhaps show you a new mindset or path to follow with confidence for 2019.

The Astrological Roots of Christmas

Christmas is not just all presents and fairy lights, there’s actually a deeper historical background to it all, one that’s based in astrology! If you don’t know the astrological roots of Christmas already, read on to find out what it’s all about!
 
ellie rose astrologer in thailand
 

Christianity and the Solstice

 
So we all know that Jesus was said to be born on December 25th, which just so happens to be the day when the Sun is at its lowest point in the sky in the northern hemisphere. This is around the Winter Solstice, a time when darkness prevails, BUT, the light begins to grow from here. Each day gets longer and warmer as the year ends and we enter the next. This is similar to a phrase from the Bible calling Jesus “the light of the world”. Jesus was the “Son of God”, or was he really the “Sun”?

On this day, the Sun enters Capricorn, whose ruler is Saturn, and this brings us to another Christmas connection: Saturnalia.

The Roman Saturnalia

 
Saturnalia was the ancient Greeks’ celebration of the God Saturn who, in those times, was believed to rule over agriculture. Since farming was at a low in winter, the Greeks would worship Saturn on December 25th and hope to win his favours by feasting, celebrating and exchanging gifts – a symbolic demonstration of abundance, just like we do to this day!

When times are hard, sometimes a bit of festivity is all we need to bring some cheer to a gloomy dark time – which leads us to the next bit!

Darkness and Lights

 
Since this time of year is darkest, it brings up people’s fear of survival. No crops would be growing and the nights would be long. Even today we get “Seasonal Affective Disorder” where the lack of light makes us all a bit glum – so in ancient times people would light bonfires and candles to drive away the darkness and bring in a bit of light, and nowadays we have fairy lights and towns light up whole streets to bring in a bit of festivity.

The Biblical tale of the three wise men revolves around lights too. When the wise men went to find the baby Jesus they supposedly followed a “bright star” known as the “Star of Bethlehem” – these men were astrologers for sure!

It’s not certain what star they were following or whether it was an astronomical event rather than a fixed star, but the three wise men certainly had knowledge of how to understand the messages from above, and we still remember this symbol by adding a star to the top of our Christmas trees – lighting our homes from above.
 
Christmas Santa Claus 2018
 
So if there’s anything to take from all of this, it’s that despite our modern twist on things, Christmas is still very much a festival of light and we still have many traditions that are as ancient as the stars themselves! The Sun will soon come back, so for now let’s eat drink and make merry!

Merry Christmas my Lovely Stargazers!

Expressing Mars in Pisces at India’s Holy River

From 16th November, Mars will be in Pisces, giving us extra motivation towards creative, empathetic and spiritual expression. This coincides perfectly with my trip to the River Ganges in Rishikesh, India, where people flock from all over the world to pursue their deeper drives.

About Rishikesh and the River Ganges

 
The River Ganges is India’s holy river and Rishikesh is a pilgrimage place famous for its sprawling ashrams and colourful temples. Here you can find spirituality in abundance, from the many yoga centres to the chants of mantras around every corner.

This hub of spirituality draws people seeking something more from life, a deeper meaning or a bit of clarity or relief from their usual everyday chaos, and this fits with the theme of Mars in Pisces, which will drive us towards activities that soothe our soul, just like the cleansing waters of the famous holy river.

How Can I Express Mars in Pisces at Home?

 
But you don’t have to be in India to experience the energies of Mars in Pisces – you’ll feel it at home too! While this isn’t a great time to be pursuing external things, in fact, work, finances and exercise might start to feel a little clouded, like you’re not sure exactly what you should be doing, Mars in Pisces is encouraging you to see things from a different perspective – one that’s both creative and spiritual.

So How Can We Balance the Two?

 
Of course, we all have to work, even if the planets are hindering us somewhat, so instead of fighting the tides, go with the flow and add some watery vibes to your everyday life.

You could try meditating while doing your housework – this works particularly well while washing dishes. Just focus on your breath instead of letting your mind wander and you might find that some issue that’s been evading your recently becomes clearer when you apply your intuition instead of your logical mind.

Activate your empathy, just as I’m doing here in India by feeding cows and stray dogs. You can do this simply by making someone a cup of tea, listening to a friend who needs an ear or if you’re really driven, get out there and do some charity work – you’ll find doing things for others will give you more energy and self-confidence while Mars is in Pisces.

If your work has felt a bit stuffy recently, try adding some creative flair to the mix, even if it’s just doodling on your coffee break, trying something completely different to your usual style or taking a walk in the park at lunch. If you have time, a session of swimming can work wonders for your body, mind and soul at this time – make like a fish and go diving for inner wisdom!

Mars in Pisces – Tips from India

 
If you want to add some Indian flair to your Mars in Pisces experience, why not try one of these famous mantras. You can search them on YouTube and listen while you work, exercise or travel, or you can memorise them and repeat them to yourself, in your head is fine too!

Ganesha Mantra:

 
“Om Gan Ganpataye Namo Namah” – (YouTube link)
 
This one is great for unblocking stuck energy, whether that’s emotional – as in you’ve got a problem that just can’t be solved and is making you feel tired or blue, or even a physical block like you want to earn more money but can’t find a way. Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, so perfect for Mars in Pisces when we need to let life flow like a river.
 

Shiva Mantra:

 
“Om namah shivaya” – (YouTube link)

This mantra is for Lord Shiva, one of Hinduism’s main deities and is designed to get us focussing on our inner world so we can learn more about ourselves and increase our feelings of oneness with divine love. It’s a powerful mantra for seeing the truth in all experiences, so a great way to shift any confusion that Mars in Pisces might bring.

But whatever you do, let your creative, spiritual side flow freely and Mars in Pisces will be a very enlightening time!
 
 
Much love from the Banks of the River Ganges,
