I've noticed that when I sign in almost every time we are in the planetary hour of Venus. From the Kemetic perspective Venus is associated with Asar and the Bennu bird (phoenix). Asar was a pre-dynastic leader (mate of Ast) who helped early Kemetic culture flourish and was later betrayed by his brother (or so the story goes). Venus is both morning and evening star and while shining in the morning is associated with Asar while he was living and the abundance resulting of cultivation of higher nature. In the evening, Venus is associated with Asar after his death/transformation and leader of blessed dead.

Here's an article from Roan Robbins I have this printed out for quick reference, thot you might like it too:
the Moon Through the Signs from We'moon '01 and '02
The Moon speaks directly to our spirit. It describes the daily pulse, the emotional matrix we walk through. As the Moon changes sign every 2 1/2-day, the filters on our internal expression changes. Let the garden be a metaphor for any project you want to nourish. Our own Moon sign talks about our personal spiritual lineage, our emotional prime-directive.
One born with the MOON in ARIES asks us to wake up and remember who we truly are, even if it bothers those we love or work for. Our warrior nature comes out; we want to love simply, fight cleanly, but may jump to simplistic conclusions. Tempers, tears and passions run hot. It's a great time for digging new beds, moving boulders, weeding or pest removal, but hold on planting. The Moon in Aries searches for fire, fierce independence, and her own voice. She may need to learn patience and cooperation, but appreciates our fire.
The MOON in TAURUS asks us what nurtures us and how do we grow deeper roots. We can almost feel the mud oozing between our toes, awakening our senses, sensuality and growing our stubbornness. Time to cultivate our material resources, our homes, our body and our lover's. We can viscerally listen to the green world. Plant anything you want to grow strong and fertile. One born with the Moon in Taurus searches for stability and sensuality. She may need to learn mobility, but offers us comfort, beauty and solid presence.
The MOON in GEMINI quickens our nervous system; our minds, phone line and Internet buzz. Just don't bore us, as our attention span is frayed. Build a web of understanding; network, absorb new information. Speak to your plants, trim, but avoid planting. One Born with the Moon in Gemini wants to understand, she lives and breathes communication. She may need to learn to honor stillness and concentration, but translates for us and makes us think.
While the MOON is in CANCER our feelings take the lead. Cancer encourages the wisdom rising out of our oceanic unconscious though moods and feelings; what we know in our gut. Ground in the magic of our home as a temple. Ask what needs protecting and feeding. Plant, fertilize and water your garden. One Born with the Moon in Cancer searches for what nurtures her soul and the world's soul. She needs to learn to carry her security with her, but respects our deepest feelings, helps us past our fears.
With the MOON in LEO we have the guts to be visible; bring the culture to life, perform, ritualize, dramatize. Our hearts spill over into affection and expression, or just clash egos -it's our choice. In your garden and in your life, arrange, glorify, weed the extraneous so the star can shine, don't plant and fertilize. One Born with the Moon in Leo came here to dramatize and ritualize the world. She needs to learn the sacred in the mundane, but offers us celebration, fascination, and honors our self- expression.
TheMOON in VIRGO asks us what needs healing, what needs composting. Its time to study, learn, train, organize, and turn our compassion into pragmatic action. Don't get stuck in your head. Take care of your body, nourish your health. Weed, prune, cure your garden with nutrients and companion planting, plant and care for medicinal herbs. One Born with the Moon in Virgo came here to diagnose and heal her soul and the world's. She may need to learn to celebrate the beauty in each of us, in each day, but offers us practical compassion, ancient wisdom and clear sight.
MOON in LIBRA highlights the magic of the dance of inter-relatedness; friendly, romantic, and searching for a way to connect. We see beauty as healing, seduction as a gift. Libra asks us to really treat those around us as equals, and asks us to make sure our politics and art, our lovemaking and our networks all model this beauty. Tend to the beauty of the garden, cultivate, love your flowers, but save the planting for later. One Born with the Moon in Libra came here to feel the beauty in peace and cooperation. She may need to learn to hear her own voice under conflict, but she offers us bone-deep kindness, justice through mediation and the healing power of aesthetics.
While theMOON is in SCORPIO, dig deep. This Moon weaves the visible and invisible worlds together, we can see through, look into the roots of any matter. Direct this Scorpionic concentration away from obsession and towards creation. We learn from intensity, depth, and power; sexuality can be potent, musky. Perform surgery on the deadwood of our life. Be careful of your scorpion sting; react with care and with our heart connected. Dig in your garden plant roots; feed the soil and compost. One Born with the Moon in Scorpio came here study intensity; find herself in solitude first, and then through transformative action with others. She may need to learn flexibility and socialization, but she offers us company and a fearless guide in the inner worlds as she midwifes all transitions.
MOON in SAGITTARIUS brings out our inner-Artemis; we need room to roam, to explore in the body and in the soul. We cheer up, hate to sit still, need philosophical context. Our curiosity intensifies; we want to know the principles, the idea behinds it all. We need to check out untraveled territory and connect with the organic world. Have a long talk with the animals in your garden, work the soil but hold the planting. One Born with the Moon in Sagittarius came here to explore. She may need to learn to hold still and work through a challenge, but she offers us radical acceptance; she speaks to all species and weaves the global community.
MOON in CAPRICORN brings planning magic; how can you take your ideas, your explorations, and earth them, give them form and hope. Capricorn wants to take a dream and walk it up to the top of the mountain, so give yourself goals, mountains to climb, projects to do, or this managerial gift of these days can turn towards those you love. Respect other's wisdom even as your own grows. We are able to tap into the inner wisewoman, so ask how form, ritual, organization or tradition can serve you. Trim, prune, plant slow growing, deep rooting seedlings, and make sure you and your garden have enough water. One Born with the Moon in Capricorn came here to build, to accomplish, and to understand compassionate leadership. She may need to learn to lover herself, not just what she does, and respect other ways and rhythms, but she offers us constructive determination and practical support.
The MOON in AQUARIUS expands our circle, offers the magic of collaboration and collectivization; responsibility for the whole. Spirit and politics weave together. We can get too farsighted now, and need to stay aware of the feelings of those close to us. We see, and can learn about pattern, how energy runs in the body, in the community and through new technology. Be ready to let go of assumptions and find new, unusual allies. A time to gather plants, mulch, prune, and talk to your garden, but not plant. One Born with the Moon in Aquarius came here to understand group dynamics. She may need to learn to feel comfortable with emotional intimacy, but she offers us a global perspective, fresh approach, and collaboration.
The MOON in PISCES offers sensitive magic. While the Moon is in Pisces we feel the world with compassion, heightened senses, softened intuitive boundaries and strong imagination. We may need to spend time in the temple, or back under our covers as we digest what's going on in our life, and deal with sensory overload. A time to vision, to listen to our inner voices and creative juices. Touch each other with new awareness. This is a fertile time in the garden; plant, transplant, water, fertilize. One Born with the Moon in Pisces came here to feel everything. She may need to learn to filter her impressions, and how strong truly is, but she offers us insight, an imaginative approach, and subtle, compassionate medicine. She encourages our vision.
A wombn in harmony with her spirit iz like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.
