Lust Candle Astrology

Venus & Mars in Leo in the 5th
Lust is a Mars-ruled creation, with Aries on the Ascendant. Venus is separating from a conjunction to Mars in Leo, but the two are still joining forces.
Mars & Venus are in the 5th House of Creativity, Self-Expression, & Romance. The Moon in Libra sextiles both of them, separating from Mars and applying to Venus.
Sun, Moon, & Pluto Add to the Intensity
This candle series captures the building, dynamic aspect of the First Quarter Moon. The Moon is also in a confrontational T-square with the Sun and Pluto. This adds a lot of heat, passion, and power to the brew. An emotionally intense Sun in Cancer opposes fervent Pluto, which is the baser, transformational energy of the fire urn that we wish to channel.
