Mindful Heart Astrology – Venus Rulerships:  Libra and Taurus

By | October 18th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

Venus Rulership is expressed in two signs. Libra is the second sign of the zodiac ruled by the planet Venus, the other is Taurus. Last month we looked at the Mercury rulerships, so Libra and Taurus are the second pair of signs in the zodiac which share a planetary ruler. Like Gemini and Virgo, the Venus ruled signs also represent one air sign and one earth sign. Air (Libra) reflects energy directed towards communication and connection, marking this sign as another of our ‘bridge-builders’ linking ideas and people. Earth (Taurus) is a grounding type of energy directed towards manifestation, giving form to ideas by creating structure and making things happen. Considering the elements alone one can begin to see how Venus appropriately represents both of her domains.

Mindful Heart Astrology: The Seventh House of Relationship

By | September 22nd, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan, Right Relationship|

The Seventh House of the horoscope represents the areas of life associated with Marriage, Committed Relationships, and Partnerships. Relationships and partnerships show up in our lives in many different ways. Committed relationships such as marriage, significant business relationships, contracts, negotiations, and any of the legal parameters concerning these connections, are all represented by the 7th house. As an ‘air’ house, the activities here are associated with connecting to and relating with others. The tone and nature of the connection between two people sets the boundaries, or establishes the container, for the relationship.  One’s interpersonal style of relating and communicating, as well as one’s intellect and perspective on relationships is characterized by the particular sign on the cusp of the house.

Mindful Heart Astrology ~ Mercury’s Rulerships

By | September 4th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

Virgo is the second sign of the zodiac to have Mercury as the ruling planet, the other is Gemini. At first glance, Virgo and Gemini seem vastly different, one is an earth sign and the other an air sign. They are both however, mutable signs which means there is a high degree of flexibility and adaptability with each.  When I began my studies in Astrology, I often wondered why these signs shared the smallest planet in the solar system as their ruler. The key to understanding this rulership is to consider the qualities of Mercury itself, rather than comparing the particular qualities of the signs.

Mindful Heart Astrology – Sixth House

By | August 21st, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

The Sixth House of the horoscope relates to the areas of life concerned with Health, Service, Work and ‘day-to-day’ tasks and responsibilities. This is an ‘earth’ house so the activities that occur here are practical and relate to the underlying structure of one’s daily life. Naturally ruled by the sign of Virgo, some related concepts include areas of service and devotion, refinement (improvement), analysis, discernment and systems. Mercury is the planetary ruler drawing in the elements of skills, craftsmanship, intellect, ‘busy-ness’ and those things which require hands-on attention in one’s daily routine.

Natal Sun Sign and the Influence of Leo

By | August 9th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

The Sun is one of two luminaries in the natal chart, though for ease of reference we generally refer to it as one of the 10 planets. Thanks to print media, Sun signs became a significant part of pop culture in the 1960’s, a phenomenon that does not appear to be experiencing any decline and, as a result, most people tend to know their own Sun sign. In the horoscope, the Sun is the central figure representing one’s life force, the conscious mind and one’s creative energy. Simply put, it is our ego, our basic identity, and how we want to shine in the world. The Sun is what makes each of us unique, reflecting our potential and our spirit, as well as our purpose in life. It is the vehicle for our “doing” self, reflecting the energy that gets us where we want to go.

Mindful Heart Astrology: Fifth House

By | July 18th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

The Fifth House of the horoscope is most often identified as the house of Children and Creativity. Within this realm we also find Sports, Leisure, and Romance. So, what do each of these areas of life have in common? This is the natural house of Leo, so those things that make one shine have front and center stage. They each represent our creative self-expression, what we want to offer up, and how we want to be recognized. These are things we feel proud of and want to shout out to the world, “this is mine”, “it’s my baby”, “I did it”!

Mindful Heart Astrology: The Fourth House

By | July 5th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

Home and Family, along with psychological roots and ancestry, are the areas of life represented in the Fourth House. Naturally ruled by the sign of Cancer and the Moon, matters of inner security, comfort, nurturing and mother is found here. This is a “water house” and so one can naturally assume there is a great deal of emotion reflected with many of the undercurrents present in family, representative of our ancestral roots and flavoring our individual experiences. The cusp of the Fourth House is at the base of the chart, where our past and our roots are anchored. It is from this location that everything in one’s life tends to flow, or at least begin.

Third House:  Who is in My Neighborhood and How do I Connect?

By | June 20th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

The Third House of the Horoscope is naturally ruled by Gemini and, as such, the planet Mercury. Known as the house of communication this part of the horoscope shows how we express ourselves and with whom. As with the first two in the chart, this is a personal house, very much about one’s self-expression and the connection with those in their immediate environment. Here, intellect also comes into play since our thinking processes are reflected by our communication style. The sign on the cusp, as well as any planets that reside here, suggests one’s style and preferences for communication as well as the thinking processes that underlies our actions.

Second House:  My Values and Self Worth

By | May 22nd, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

The Second House of the Horoscope is naturally ruled by Taurus and, as such, the planet Venus. This house is associated with our values, self-worth, personal resources and finances, earned income, personal possessions and real estate holdings. Known as the House of possessions and values one often relates it to tangible things, in keeping with its earthy nature, and is closely linked to what we manifest. The material goods that we own are often a reflection of what we value in life, things that provide us with a sense of well-being and make our lives more enjoyable.

The Planet Venus – Ruler of Taurus

By | April 29th, 2017|Astrology, Jayne Logan|

We have entered the Taurus part of this year’s zodiac cycle so it’s a good time to take a look at this sign’s ruling planet. Venus is one of the planets that rules two signs and, in this case, she rules both Taurus and Libra. For the purpose of this post though we will be focusing on elements that relate mainly to Taurus. The second planet from the Sun, Venus’ cycle through the zodiac takes place over approximately 224 days, less than a year.
