Killing Eve – Zodiac Edition

I have now joined the bandwagon that is assigning fictional characters their zodiac signs. Let the games begin. Feel free to argue with me… it will only help my algorithm.

“Killing Eve” is a cat and mouse story based on the novella “Codename Villanelle” by Luke Jennings, and developed for TV by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It stars the incomparable Sandra Oh as Eve, the passionate MI5/6 security officer, and the I-don’t-even-know-how-to-describe-her-brilliance-yet Jodie Comer as Villanelle. The most interesting woman (and assassin) in the whole damn universe.

Let’s start with Eve… she’s the title character in this version of the story after all.

EVE

I’ve given Eve a Pisces Sun because her intuition is what guides her almost 100% of the time. At her core (which is our sun sign) she is an intuitive. She goes with her gut feelings and adjusts to the tides. Sometimes she can’t even explain how or why she knows what Villanelle is up to, she just knows and she must follow her instincts to find her. Pisces also rules the planet Venus, and if we know our art history when it comes to Botticelli, we know his Birth of Venus painting suggests (by some), you guessed it, The Fall of Eve. I rest my case on her sun sign.

Here’s that Pisces intuition at work:

Eve’s rising sign is Gemini. I bestow this witty sign upon her because this is how the world sees her: Witty (who could forget her calling her boss a “dickswab”), charming, and LOVES to learn. Learning is super important to folks who have a rising sign in Gemini. If they can’t flex their curiosity, there really is no point in doing anything. Eve is always curious and willing to dig deeper, even into just a mere hunch.

An agent with a Gemini sense of humor:

And finally, I think Eve’s Moon sign is in Scorpio. Here is where all that sexy Eve-biz lies. It’s also, in my opinion, the KEY with a capital K-E-Y to her and Villanelle’s connection with each other (notice I didn’t use the term attraction). This is a C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I-O-N. Scorpio Moons are all about commitment, fear of betrayal, testing their loved ones, and their ability to see right through a person unlike anyone else. And I actually think they both have it (spoiler alert), and for the same reasons. I’ll add a little more to this when we get to Villanelle’s Moon in Scorpio. Hang tight!

VILLANELLE

Now let’s go to Villanelle. Oh my. Before I get into it I just have to say that, to me, she is almost all fire. An astrological WILD FIRE at that, with a tich of water that makes things steam and sizzle a bit.

thehole

Aries Sun right off the bat. She has 0% fear and is 100% action, spared no expense. She’s impatient, restless, gets bored easily, and loves a challenge. Aries Sun folks also have a very playful/childlike demeanor, and she often displays this in the series with her outfits and interactions with Konstantin and other children.

When it comes to her rising sign, which is how others see us, I see her as Leo Rising. Extravagant costumes, creative and theatrical kills, and those eyes she makes at her prey. One just can’t deny that there is Leo in this Lioness.  Protective of her people, but at the same time, feral to the point where she might kill them too. You just never know… depends on how hungry she is, perhaps.

Leo stalking her prey:

 

Leo theatrics at work here:

And finally, her Scorpio Moon, which is the key to her and Eve. This is where they connect. The Moon represents the divine feminine, and these two cherubs flow along with the same tide. When one goes this way, the other follows. When one resists, the other bursts into unstoppable tears. The thought of losing each other would be their death. Their killing.

Also… how Scorpio is this outfit?

And… here are our Scorpio Moon Goddesses in action together:

I won’t deny that Villanelle must have Sagitarrius in her chart somewhere, perhaps even a stellium because she loves getting that attention. Eve is also dancing with some Libra since she’s all about that J-U-S-T-I-C-E. But discussing their other potential planet signs too would take the time that I need to continue watching this show… and sleep.

FULL MOON + TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO READING

On January 20/21 (depending on where you are in the world) there is a Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Lunar Eclipses happen during Full Moons, and it’s when the moon passes into Earth’s shadow, which blocks the sun from illuminating it. It might even look red (hence the Blood Moon name this moon also has).

So what does this mean in terms of energy, and tarot, and all that spiritual stuff?

Leo is the protector and facilitator of creativity in the zodiac. Even if your Sun sign is not Leo, that’s ok! Somewhere in your chart there is a little (or a lot of) Leo. Go to cafeastrology.com, get the Time Passages APP, or book a zodiac e-book with me to find out where it might be.

This moon is shining a light on our creativity. Take stock in where your life could use a boost of color and sparkle. What gifts can you share with yourself, your friends and family, in the work place, or to the world on your social media platforms? Don’t worry, you don’t have to spread yourself thin, choose the person/location/platform that makes the most sense, and where you can get the most intuitive and genuine creativity out of yourself. It should feel fun and not like a chore or obligation.

I created this 3-card spread specific to this moon and creativity. The meanings here are broad and for the collective. If you’d like the reading to be tailored to your specific craft/situation, please book a personalized reading for this moon here: GET YOUR READING HERE

CARD 1: Where is there a need for more creativity in our lives?
CARD 2: How can we embrace our creativity more?
CARD 3: What is holding our creativity back?

B75F3AFD-F4B5-4783-970F-9E098CFA0F16

CARD 1: Where is there a need for more creativity in our lives?
TWO OF WANDS REVERSED
When this card shows up upright, it usually means that there is a clear direction and choice is being made. Reversed, there is a lack of direction, planning, and a fear of the unknown. This card is suggesting that more creativity might be needed in our daily routines. Where have things fallen stagnant and uninspired? It can also mean that risks are ready to be taken. What creative endeavors have been calling to you, but you haven’t been answering? It’s time to pick up the phone.

CARD 2: How can we embrace our creativity more?
Upright, this card represents conflict, however when reversed, it can represent the avoidance of conflict. In answer to our question of how we can embrace or creativity more, the answer might be just as simple as putting an end to avoiding it or getting distracted from it. Take stock in what you do hourly… what time is wasted on things that don’t serve your creative soul? Social Media and Video Games are my problem.

It also might mean that the creativity you wish to embark on, might create some conflict of it’s own and you are fearful of that. Perhaps you are into political art, or a topic that has a lot of controversy. Go with your gut on this, but if your work is focused on humanity and dismantling systems of oppression, put any fears of conflict aside because that is God/Goddess work and we can all (myself included, of course) do more of it.

CARD 3: What is holding our creativity back?
The nine of cups is a card of completion and achievement. It’s an extremely creative card and one that is full of happiness and abundance. So why might such a wonderful card represent something holding us back? Because sometimes, completion is scary. If we complete a project, what is next? Fear of the unknown holds so many of us back and keeps us in the same rhythm. Keep in mind that the end is only the beginning, and finishing one project can lead to several new ones that could bring even more wisdom and achievements. Keep the cycle going.

Embracing my creativity today with this graphic illustration of the Full Moon in Leo. Enjoy!

JANUARY 13-19: CARD OF THE WEEK & COSMIC FORECAST

Here is a look at some astrological happenings this week, and a “card of the week” pull to tie it all together in a cosmic bow. (This is just a sampling of the things that stood out to me. There are plenty of other happenings should you choose to dive deeper. I am not an astrologer… just a tarot reader who uses the cosmos as a motivational guide. I pulled the times you see below from Llewellyn’s planners – I have a few.)

SUNDAY – JANUARY 13TH
Moon still in Aries

MONDAY – JANUARY 14TH
Moon is “void-of-course” (V/C) at 10:56am EST until 1:31pm EST.  When the moon is “void-of-course”, this means that it is in transition to the next sign in the zodiac as it moves through the cosmos. It’s “void-of-course” because it’s between signs, therefor not within a sign. This is a great time to not do shit! Of course that is not possible for everyone, myself included, as I have quite a few meetings already scheduled during this time. Perhaps nothing will get done, and I will have to be accepting of that. Keep track of what happens (or not) during this time, as see if life is like pulling teeth. If you are a dentist, it might just be pulling teeth, but you get it.

1:31 EST Moon enters Taurus
Taurus loves comfort and beautiful things. Start the week off by making your bed, and getting your home life in order. Prep some food, and nurture yourself. If you are at work at this time, clear some space on your desk, declutter a locker, your car, or anything that makes the space you are in more comfortable.

TUESDAY – JANUARY 15TH
Still chilling in Taurus
Did you make your bed yet?

WEDNESDAY – JANUARY 16TH
Moon V/C 1:34PM EST – 8:00PM EST
Moon enters Gemini  8:00PM EST
Gemini’s love chatter. So much so, they can’t shut up sometimes. (Gemini Rising over here, don’t mind me). This might be a nice time to be more social. Schedule a coffee date with a friend, or call someone. Gemini’s are also curious, so if being social is not in the cards this week (or month), dive deep into a book or series you’ve been wanting to check out and feed the twins with knowledge! (The Gemini twins that is).

THURSDAY – JANUARY 17TH
Still chilling in Gemini

FRIDAY – JANUARY 18TH
Moon V/C 8:32PM EST – 10:44PM EST
Moon enters Cancer 10:44PM EST
Cancer rules the home, so perhaps having an early night in instead of partying up a storm elsewhere tonight is the better bet. And if you channeled Taurus earlier in the week, your fresh bed and home will be just what the Dr ordered after a long week.

SATURDAY – JANUARY 19TH
Still chilling in Cancer

GET READY FOR A FULL MOON AND TOTAL LUNAR  ECLIPSE IN LEO (EARLY) ON THE 21ST! AND AQUARIUS SEASON! This whole week is prep so let’s get some of our shit together before then, shall we? More to come…

OUR CARD FOR THE WEEK:

AE2AC545-7D8B-442D-986A-F0097343666E.jpeg

THE LOVERS – This card is ruled by Gemini, our moon mid week! Perhaps this is a sign that some of you will go on some dates, get to know new people, and form meaningful relationships. Use the power of the Gemini moon midweek to gain some courage to say “hello” to someone. If you are already in a relationship, open up communication with your partner in order to find more unity and honesty with eachother.

If love is just not happening this week, this card could also be a sign that you will be faced with having to make an important decision this week. Take a look at those “void-of-course” times this week and try not to make the decision within that timing – if possible!!!  Don’t miss an opportunity just because some stranger on the internet suggested that you hold off. Your gut knows best a majority of the time.

JANUARY 6-12 : CARD OF THE WEEK & MOON FORECAST

Here is a look at some astrological happenings this week, and a “card of the week” pull to tie it all together in a cosmic bow. (This is just a sampling of the things that stood out to me. There are plenty of other happenings should you choose to dive deeper. I am not an astrologer… just a tarot reader who uses the cosmos as a motivational guide. I pulled the times you see below from Llewellyn’s planners – I have a few.)

Coming out of our New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (post here), the moon will travel through Aquarius, Pisces and Aries this week. Air+Water+Fire! The moon is also Waxing all week… meaning growing with intention.

Here are some times should you recognize a “shift”…

Sunday/6th: Uranus goes Direct 3:27pm (EST)
Uranus is the planet of surprise… it’s been in retrograde since August 2018. Going direct, it might have even more surprises in store. In relation to the message we got yesterday with the eclipse and going with the flow on what we can’t control… best to remember that and continue to put it into practice where we can this week and beyond.

Monday/7th: Moon enters Aquarius 1:46am (EST)
Get ready for weirdness. I might be biased since my Moon is in Aquarius, but this sign in this placement loves to march to the beat of their own drum and “be different.” During this time, stay true to anything that comes up that others might raise their eyebrows at. All within reason of course… don’t be a jerk about it, ok? Aquarius is a lot of air, which tends to represent our intellect and logic. Which means when others are emotional, we might not respond with compassion. Try to where needed. (Think the suit of swords in Tarot)

Wednesday/9th: Moon enters Pisces 2:44pm (EST)
Water works! Just as the moon cycles, and the tides turn, so do our emotions. It’s ok to be happy or non-emotional one day, and the next be sad. When the Moon is in Pisces, we might let our emotions guide us more than our intellect and logic. So as you can see, quiet the opposite of the Moon in Aquarius just before. (Think the suit of cups in Tarot)

Saturday/12th: Moon enters Aries 3:18am (EST)
Aries loves to go for it. Is there anything you’ve been wanting to start, but have been waiting perhaps a little too long? A project, routine, hobby, etc? This weekend might be a nice time to give it a shot. No expectations needed for Aries, they don’t really give a shit! They just do it.

CARD OF THE WEEK:

A166851D-A0CA-4C85-BBEA-60ED4BD456E1

5 of Pentacles Reversed…
If the end of 2018 was difficult, things could be looking up in 2019 if that initial burden of any loss has lightened up. That’s not to say that things are 100% back to normal and happy go lucky… but rather that the light at the end of the tunnel is at least visible now. When this card is upright, the subjects in the foreground are struggling so much that they don’t even see the light behind them, welcoming them in for warmth and support. Reversed, there is at least some awareness. Use the power of the Waxing moon this week to go with the flow of your emotions, learn from them, and see what new things you can feed your soul with. Start to rebuild, and like the moon, you’ll start to see some light again as it grows from new to full in the next two weeks.

*Please also note that I’m not saying everything will be fixed in your life this week and that’s the end of it. Do what you have to do, and if you are privileged, see where you can do unto others as well and boost the collective vs just yourself, ok? Self love and care are cool but not when you hoard the pot of honey all to yourself. Those folks in the 5 of Pentacles need support, maybe that’s you!
