We all know the expression, food for thought. This feature is more like a snack. It’s a prompt for thinking about some astrological idea and how it works for you. I’d love to have your feedback in the Comments!
Today’s Munchie assumes that you’re old enough to have had more than one deep love relationship in your life. (If not, use close friends and/or relatives for comparative purposes.) It's perfect for the current Venus Retrograde cycle (25-Jul to 6-Sep 2015 ). Relationship reviews are a positive use of Venus Rx. These looks back and often reveal life-long patterns and insights that fundamentally change how we see and relate to others.
Look at the charts of the major loves of your life. What do they have in common? No deep analysis needed. Just look at what jumps out at you.
Once you identify the “trend,” think about what it might mean related to you and your own chart.
Example: Of the five men I have loved over many decades, all but one had Fire a Moon, the majority in Leo. This also applies to my father and brother.
What It Might Mean: Fire is my weakest element. I may attract men who “fill in my missing fire.” The Fire I have is Saturn/Pluto in the 4th House. Could be that to feel at home with someone, I need their fire as my figurative hearth. Of course, with those two planets in the 4th, my relationships tend to be intense and the long-lasting, whether or not the relationship lasts in its original form. I never stop loving someone I have ever loved—only the form changes.
The Leo trend connects by sextile to my planets in Libra—Venus, Mercury and Neptune. Easy for me to love a Leo Moon.
Have fun with it!
