End of LIBRA NEW MOON opposite URANUS: Diving into the Alchemy of Life! Awakening into the always-New & Free Self.

19 Oct

The LIBRA NEW MOON this year is only 3 days before the SUN enters SCO.

We’ve been experiencing a series of New Moons at the end of a Zodiac sign, since the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 – on the very last degree of LEO.
The pattern continues until the end of the year. The SAG New Moon will be on Dec 17.

This is the New Moon following the Super VIRGO New Moon opposite CHIRON on Sept 19 which carried a lot of complex, nervous, and overwhelming energy, and was a call for flexibility in integrity.
How has your lunar month been???

Seems like more than a month has passed, since it was packed and loaded.
And we’re in a whole different season now…
So yeah, today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT was the LI New Moon – on the cusp to SCO.
Please find its ‘birth chart’ below.
The transition from LI to SCO is a ‘Tipping Point’ energy (the scales tip, and choices lead to change) and also an  ‘Alchemy Point’ (‘ingredients’ of experiences may come together, and encounters with people may deeply touch us, and have transformational effects on us).
Falling in Love, Falling into Fall, Dying to the old Self and immersing into the Change….

 

What’s the MAGIC and ALCHEMY you’re stepping, falling, or diving into, these extreme and emotionally intense times?

Maybe you’ve come to a point where you say:
NO more playing games and strategizing, no more presenting yourself to others in a ‘convenient’ and conventional way to not rock the boat, no more compromising and compensating…
While deep inside (or barely under the surface) the authentic YOU is SO ready to be born / reborn (URANUS in ARIES) and LIVE.

  • What would ‘tip the scales’ of choices for you?
  • What’s the paradigm shift that’s about to happen now, or has already happened for you, that sets you FREE?

Maybe you’re done with inner relationship contracts (a LIBRAN thing) with self absorbed, overly dramatic, narcissistic, toxic (you name it) people in your life (in personal relationships, and ‘even’ with famous people ‘out there’ in public).
Don’t blame them and self-victimize, can’t change them. What do they mirror you?
We have to change from within. Themes around change are so BIG, and there are so many opportunities now – MERCURY / JUPITER both now in SCO.
See ‘Taboo Talk’ blog post from Oct 17.

Sometimes, the issues have to get big (JUPITER) to change (SCO).
Perhaps a theme of the whole JUPITER-in-SCO year (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).

Through our deep inner change (SCO), the World we perceive (JU) changes. 
Disclaimer: This is not a call for a rose coloured spiritual bypassing, rather for a deeper immersion, and intimacy with Life that might appear scary at first.

 

This NEW MOON in LIBRA is in a sense like a FULL MOON, because of its polarity with URANUS in ARIES.

Liberating ‘Golden Boy’ Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt. Prometheus the Awakener is the Archetype related to the Planet Uranus!

 

Lots of tension, polarization, upset, tragedy and turmoil is going on these days (I don’t need to tell you, it’s everywhere…). Scary and unsettling indeed, yet it’s also deeply moving time that brings us fully into the moment (ARIES).

I had my mini share of acute URANian intervention these days:
The internet wasn’t working yesterday and today – made me once again realize how dependent we all are on the umbilical cable / wireless connection. And I couldn’t get to the blog either for that matter.
After a few diy attempts, calls to my internet company, a phase of being really nervous, since one technician said it’s an issue with my computer, and asked whether it’s still on warranty!, mutual Scorpionic detective work with a competent technician lady (didn’t give up, called again – LIBRA kicked in: finding a good ‘match’ in her), in the end, re-setting the router did the job.
If you don’t have an assigned technician and deal with who’s randomly on the other end it’s a hit and miss – and self-education along the line…
Ok, URANUS definitely brought me into the acuteness of the moment here.
Meditation and smudging during the New Moon time (before calling ‘the right person’) helped with inner and space reset. Seems like I was guided to intuitively do the right things…

So yeah, thank you for your patience with the AstroNews delivery!!!

I just researched, and found that since URANUS has been in ARIES (March 11, 2011), there have been LIBRA NEW MOONs exactly opposite URANUS every 2 years:
2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017 – today – wow!
The whole URANUS in ARIES phase since 2011 has been a series of wake-up calls (URANUS entered into ARIES on the day when the Fukushima catastrophy happened), and a mass Awakening of Humanity, politically / societally, and spiritually.

When URANUS goes into relationship with a New MOON in LIBRA peace, balance, and harmony can be quite disrupted and even shattered.
On another level, True Freedom, Awakening and Liberation is ripe to be brought into the realm of relatedness – which would show up in areas of life related to the LI – AR axis in your chart.

Apropos Freedom:
Last weekend, I was at a Krishnamurti retreat. K (as he’s being called) pointed out in a video:
What’s Freedom that has no opposite? Only this is true Freedom. 
What’s Love that has no opposite? Only this is true Love.

Deep, simple, radical truth pointers (a la SATURN now coming to the ‘Galactic Centre’ end phase of SAG…) that have stayed with me, and that I’ve shared with friends and clients.
With this in mind and heart, it’s not about a path of holding the balance between opposites of Freedom (URANUS in ARIES) and Relatedness (LIBRA) but the (pathless) point is to BE FREE, unconditionally, authentically, anywhere, everywhere.

And this could be a radical (URANUS) seed point (New MOON / ARIES) NOW.

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA NEW MOON chart!

The New Moon was today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT.

LI NM 2017

So here it is, setting the tone for the next Lunar month:

What a striking gathering of SUN / MOON late LIBRA, next to JUPITER / MERCURY in early SCORPIO!
All four celestial bodies are wrapped around the ‘Alchemy Point’, from Earth perspective.
Right opposite (for the SUN and MOON exactly, today!) URANUS retro in late ARIES!

Perhaps also a reflection of the volatile scenario of a few crazy people playing with Uranium these days, while the scales may finally tip towards peaceful coexistence!

On the other hand, a wake-up call to be fully alive in THIS, experience the Magic and Alchemy of every moment, and drop into the Intimacy with Life.

The momentum goes towards SCORPIO:

  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) today Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness to change from within, and new empowerment from there.
    There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO (only once a year), and it’s also the day of the encounter of the CAP MOON with PLUTO – the ruler of SCO, pointing to emotional processing of old conditioning, and awareness of what’s been hidden, so that it may change for the better.
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things, and discover hidden beauty in the dark and changeful.
    Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games though, as VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16. Rather channel the energy into deep immersion in the mystery of Life.
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge? Definitely a lot of energy is available.

 

Also very prominent these days, as seen in the New Moon chart:
The Mutable T-square from MARS in late VIRGO (will move out of the alignment, and into LIBRA on Oct 22), opposite CHIRON retro in late PISCES, both square SATURN / LILITH in late SAG – the Galactic Centre!
A challenge / stress dynamic that needs an outlet at the late SAG apex.
Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, helpless, and disconnected – CHIRON in PI – (I did, literally, from the Internet…), and needed realignment ‘surgery’ and assertion of your integrity (MARS in VIR).

Connecting, asking for help, and doing spiritual practice with subtle energy brings things into flow again. When in a ‘rien ne va plus’ mode, it’s important to follow natural inner guidance (SATURN / LILITH in SAG) that knows… even if you don’t see the light.

LILITH and SATURN in late SAG connect in auspicious trine with URANUS retro in late ARIES (was for LILITH already exact on Oct 12 – see: me too ‘explosion’, will be for SATURN on Nov 11).

Trusting intuition, trying a completely new approach, re-set and re-start, seeing things from a fresh angle, and being fully present with what’s in front of you, step by step is the way to go.

Next up:
MARS will enter LIBRA on Oct 22 (until Dec 9) – Pursuit of Balance…?
On the same day (Oct 22) the SUN crosses over the Alchemy Point, and enters SCO. 
Stay tuned for the next AstroNews Blog post!

MARS late VIRGO opposite CHIRON in PI: Release Ceremony into the New Moon

18 Oct

Dear Astro Friends,

there are so many ways of experiencing and interpreting the dances of the Archetypal ‘Players’ out there and in us. Depending on the perspective and level from which one is seeing – which is very apropos what SATURN now in SAG shows us: Not ‘one truth’.

Today, as we’re inundated by rain storms here on the We(s)t Coast, and as we’re all moving into the late LIBRA New Moon tomorrow Oct 19 (will address it in a separate blog post), I’d like to offer you a hopefully useful ‘script’ for the MARS in late VIRGO opposite CHIRON in late PISCES dynamic that’s playing out all October, and was exact on Oct 15.

 

Aztec Shaman

The combination, and ‘bridge’ of their Archetypes is:
‘Medicine Wo/man’, and Shamanic Warrior.

In the meantime, a lot of division and polarization (typical for an opposition) shows up in the ‘psychic field’.
Let’s see what the voices of the polarized players say and sound like.
Identification and awareness (one of VIRGO’s ‘super weapons’, in Martian terms) is the first step to re-unification.

MARS now in the last phase of VIRGO which is ‘double VIRGO’, before moving into LIBRA on Oct 22.

Are your ‘inner dragons’ telling you, you aren’t ‘enough’, something’s always ‘wrong’ with you or ‘them’, and ‘a problem’?
Or do you take your frustrations out on others?

Step 1:
Can you first of all be aware of that inner ‘nay-sayer’?

How it diminishes you, critiques your experience, nothing is ever good enough…
Perhaps you can identify whose voice that really is?!

OH – and what’s its intention? To protect you…? To make your life or the world a better place? All legit.

Be a bit analytical (VIR), but mostly ask your gut sense about its deeper nature.
MERCURY / JUPITER now in SCO help with this.

Being in trusted, resonant company where you can just BE present, and where open sharing is welcome helps tremendously with this process.
That’s where CHIRON in PISCES comes in…
Hopefully you have friends and groups with whom this is possible.

If not and / or you feel called, join an Astro Experience group where we intentionally share and process in community. Or even join the Astro EmBODYment (no experience needed) that we do about monthly. Next one: Coming Fri Oct 20.

Or come for a 1-on-1 session or coaching package if that feels better to you.
I’m happy to talk with you about customizing the best option for you.

Step 2:
Acknowledging those darker sides:
Here you are. I see you.

In a simple and neutral way. Perhaps ‘sitting’ with it, walking a mile with it – as a witnessing friend.

Step 3:
After the awareness and acknowledgement is the processing and releasing with / in love.

For me and maybe for you too, these steps are of course interwoven. When love shows up the barriers are down, and the energy flows naturally.
I was breaking them down here (maybe VIRGO inspired me) which can be helpful if you realize you got stuck somewhere.

 

SCORPIO says: Process all the way through.

What comes UP wants to come OUT.

Digging, processing, and change is a BIG deal, and can lead to more freedom, now under JUPITER in SCO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).
When SATURN was in SCO (Oct 2012 – Sept 2015) we faced our inner fears, obstacles, and resistances to deep change. Hopefully you are ‘done’ with some of your core resistances, and can see what purpose they served, and how you were conditioned (these are all SATURN themes).

If you are passionate, or presently more motivated, to dive into the dark, hidden SCO depths you may well dig out treasures without the fear of approaching them.

An intentional ceremony that symbolically offers up the old limiting ‘stickiness’ is also excellent for MARS in VIRGO opp. CHIRON in PI, and this NEW MOON that catalyzes JUPITER’s entry into SCO – MERCURY and the MOON in SCO join.

Ideally do a Release Ceremony before the New Moon (which will be at 12:12 pm PDT tomorrow Oct 19).
If you’re here on the We(s)t Coast and under the influence of the current rain storms, join me in dedicating the energy of the Rain to washing out old dysfunctional patterns that are based on ‘smallness’ and (self) critical ways of being.

So much energy can be freed up, and space opened up.

The Sabian Symbol for MARS’s transition from VIR to LI , says:

PHASE 180 (VIRGO 30°):

TOTALLY INTENT UPON COMPLETING AN IMMEDIATE TASK, A MAN IS DEAF TO ANY ALLUREMENT.

marsinlibra

KEYNOTE: The total concentration required for reaching any spiritual goal.

This is the final symbol of the first half of the cycle. In the year cycle the fall equinox is now at hand; autumn begins. Through spring and summer many ways and byways have been experienced. The last message of this hemicycle of “Individualization” is that on all decisive occasions what must be done has to be done so intently that no outer voices can penetrate the mind, still less the soul. The neophyte stands at the gates of the sacred Pyramid. There is only one step he can take — ahead, or he is lost.

This is the culminating step, the decision that results from a myriad of small choices. Still a shadow of hesitation can remain. Attention may be distracted from the Now by a voice from the past, glamorizing some old memory. The outer doors of perception and thought must be closed, so the soul can complete its CONQUEST OF ILLUSION.

 

Stay tuned for the end-of-LIBRA New Moon (Oct 19) Astro~News!

MERCURY / JUPITER in SCORPIO: Taboo Talk

17 Oct
Not even a week ago since JUPITER crossed the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on 10/10.

And already SUCH a movement of so many of us who don’t put up with LIBRAN ‘being nice and polite’, playing the game, or compromising / compensating for other people’s s..t anymore.
The ‘me too’ tidal wave is one example of how airing what’s been hidden is empowering and transforming.


MUCH more to come, under JUPITER in SCORPIO until Nov 9, 2018.
Have I mentioned yet? SATURN will cross the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN on Dec 19!

We’re also in the T-square from MARS in late VIR opp. CHIRON in PI (exact Sunday Oct 15 when the me too wave started), both in square to SATURN and LILITH in late SAG (the Galactic Centre) –
Truth Speaking spirals out like a Galaxy, and sets us free. Who knows where Humanity goes from there.

Sooo.
MERCURY is now (since this – Oct 17 – morning) also in SCORPIO, joining and passing JUPITER tomorrow (Wed) morning.
Big Time Taboo Talk, as we dive into ‘uncomfortable’, scary, repressed, covered up, and unfathomable topics and scenarios, remembered, experienced, or perhaps vividly pictured.

Of course, this is only the starting point, to process what’s been ‘under wraps’…


The ‘me too’ social media wave, triggered my Alyssa Milano just a few days ago, encouraged women and men: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” 

Hundreds of thousands of us responded. 

Which woman never has been sexually harassed or assaulted, verbally or physically???
Sadly and scandalously, it almost ‘comes with the territory’ of inhabiting a female body (speaking from personal experience).
Up until now.

 

A hidden issue of magnitude (JUPITER) indeed, that’s been talked about now big time.
May the Truth empower us, and bring Healing and Freedom!
JUPITER (only one week so far) in SCORPIO – Outgrowing what’s been hidden!

 

Me too isn’t completely new – 11 years ago (JUPITER was also in SCO then), Tarana Burke founded the me too Movement in 2006, to spread awareness and understanding about sexual assault in underprivileged communities of colour. 

May the Me too wave lead to ‘game over ‘ / zero tolerance for sexual harassment, assault, and even violence in Hollywood, and in a Society of true Adults!
I know I’m a ‘bit’ idealistic here but putting the blessing out regardless.
Big kudos, Alyssa Milano, for getting the ball rolling!
A.M. was born on Dec 19, 1972 – here is her chart.
Lilith and Saturn are now (Oct / Nov, only every 9 / 29 years) transiting her late SAG Sun – the Integrity Point. She even has PLUTO on her JUPITER / North Node in CAP nowadays /-years – being a catalyst for Eve-olution out of the dysfunctional and abusive patriarchal system.
And  with her MARS in late SCO, VENUS / NEPTUNE / MERCURY in early SAG – all on the ‘Phoenix Point’ on her 12th House cusp, she’s speaking out on behalf  of ‘whom it may concern’, and encourages the Collective to speak out and free up hidden stuff – we’re all in this together, it’s a societal phenomenon.
Her SATURN / MOON in GEMINI also got activated just in the last months – must voice and question on behalf of (mostly) women…

And that’s just the beginning of a major SCORPIO infusion:


We’re heading into a spooky (if you will), Astro Archetype line-up in SCO that’ll reach us deeply to evoke change from within, and has us process deep, otherwise covered themes:
  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) on Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness and new empowerment to what’s ready to transform. There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO! (Also the day of MOON / PLUTO – ruler of SCO).
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things. Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical mystery black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games (VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16).
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge?

 

Stay tuned for the end-of-LIBRA New Moon (Oct 19) Astro~News!

Friday the 13th with VENUS going from VIRGO into LIBRA (on Oct 14): Divine Feminine Calling…

13 Oct

Expecting a dramatic spooky story, apropos Friday the 13th, JUPITER now in SCORPIO, and the MOON in LEO?
Well, it’s your choice… so many ways of perceiving ‘reality’ and the Archetypes.

I’d rather say (and suppose SATURN and LILITH in late SAG support my case):
It’s time to drop and outgrow old, limiting beliefs, agendas, and stories!

For records, this is the second (and last) Friday the 13th this year. # 1 was in January.

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world would want us believe…
I’ll roll that out in a bit.

Let’s start with VENUS
Why? To be revealed in a bit.

 

How’s it going, with VENUS in VIRGO (since Sept 19)?

Have you been clearing your Inner Temple?
Have you been honouring the inner and outer Feminine?
Have you become aware about ‘issues’, and found ‘remedies and recipes’?
Do you feel more self sufficient perhaps? Whole and complete, ‘perfect’ as you ARE…

 

4 R

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype.

Hope you’ve been able over the last month to honour your work, your practice, your body, and to  align more fully with what’s healthy, what works for you, and how you can be in your ‘temple of service’.
VIRGO is so self-contained (and has sometimes – often! – a hard time asking for help, and being open to receive). VENUS is traditionally not well placed in VIRGO since it’s the d.i.y. mode isn’t so conducive to attracting partners, more to working and being in service to others, being busy and often concerned about things that could ‘go wrong’. and even to dealing with inadequacy issues: SO much work-on-self to be ‘perfect’ or even ‘good enough’ – Relax, VIRGO!


Yet, when channeled into being in alignment with one’s Higher Self, VIRGO is so exquisitely and purely on purpose, bringing order into chaos, and seeing the Sacred in the ‘small’.
VIRGO comes before LIBRA: Cultivating self-awareness and self-sufficiency are prerequisites for relationships.

 

VENUS will go into LIBRA, one of ‘her’ domains (besides TAU), on Sat Oct 14 (until Nov 7).

A wonderful phase for meeting others in natural complementariness, attracting good ‘matches’, being more relationally oriented, regaining peace and balance, being drawn to beauty, arts, and culture, and to all things refined. Ahhhh!
VENUS in LIBRA is a beautiful time to bring the Sacred Feminine into relatedness – and perhaps to rebalance our lives if we’ve become too busy, hectic, anxious, and have been dealing with too many to-do’s.

 

Speaking of Sacred Feminine:
How do you hold Friday the 13th?

What’s your sense about its reputation as a ‘bad luck’ or even scary day?
What’s considered ‘scary’ might actually be sacred!

Birth of Venus (Detail) – Painting by S. Botticelli

Did you know that the Norse Goddess Freya gave Friday its name?
She is the equivalent of 
VENUS / Aphrodite, goddess of beauty, attraction, erotic pleasures, and art.

The Romans called the 6th day of the week ‘De Veneris’ (belonging to VENUS) which became Venerdi in Italian, Viernes in Spanish, and Vendredi in French.

So here’s the case for VENUS and Friday.

Just for fun, here are the 7 days of the week and their associations with planets, Sun, and Moon:

SUNday

MOONday

MARSday (Mardi, Martedi) – Tuesday relates to Tyr / Tew (Norse good of war and law – equivalent of Mars)

MERCURYday (Mercredi, Miercoles)
JUPITERday (Jeudi, Jueves) – Thursday relates to Thor (Norse good of thunder – similar to Jupiter / Zeus)

VENUSday (Vendredi, Viernes) – Fridey relates to Freya

SATURNday

 

And now, what’s with the 13?

Uhh, there is a lot of story around vilifying the number 13… do your research.
The number 13 may have been purposely vilified by the founders of patriarchal religions in the early days of Western civilization because it represented femininity. Thirteen is said to have been revered in prehistoric goddess-worshiping cultures because it corresponded to the number of lunar (menstrual) cycles in a year (13 x 28 = 364 days).

Moon Goddess

Zodiac years have 12 – 13 New Moons and / or Full Moons.
As the solar calendar triumphed over the lunar with the rise of male-dominated civilization, so did the “perfect” number 12 over the “imperfect” number 13.

The association of 13 with the feminine and lunar cycle is the MOON side of Friday the 13th.

Hence, we have a strong VENUS / MOON themed day.

Those who sowed the seeds of superstition must have been very afraid of the power of the Feminine…

Let’s celebrate, and live the Divine and Sacred Feminine!

JUPITER into SCORPIO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018) :: Deep Dive into the Alchemy

9 Oct

Mighty JUPITER has come to the end of its 13-month journey through LIBRA (09/09, 2016 – 10/10, 2017), and moves over theTipping Point’ into SCORPIO tomorrow, Oct 10!

Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts that JUPITER has brought with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart (House, Planets) has been ‘blown up’ over the last year, so that there can be more SPACE around it that allows for (mutual) growth.

 

 

On the LIBRA – SCORPIO ‘Tipping Point’,

Choices (or a Choiceless Choice?) lead to Change!
Choosing from Peace.
Deep Journey into Change.

The cusp from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not ‘just’ a Tipping Point.

 
It’s also an ‘ALCHEMY Point’, and a Magical Zone.

New Life Unfurling in the Fall – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

SO much MAGIC is showing up these days – if we invite it, and are open and grateful (JUPITERian qualities)!

I’ve been blessed with a whole domino effect of Magic at and since a personal retreat this Thanksgiving weekend, where a recurring theme has been ‘Free Fall into the Timeless’ 
Inquiries like:
Freedom that has no opposite.
Love that has no opposite.
…have been gifts that open tremendous SPACE – very JUPITERian…

And then, intimate encounters (LIBRA – SCORPIO) with Nature Beings (Plants, Trees, Animals, the Elements) have shown me the Timelessness yet natural Timeliness they’re always in.
What they teach me in that moment is just perfectly what resonates and what I need to hear. What looks like ‘synchronicities’ seems more the result of naturally being ‘at the right time at the right place’ without resisting, without ulterior agenda.

The Wisdom of Nature, and the Intimacy with Life as it Unfolds….

It can’t be actually described and talked about (as airy LIBRA would like to – which would also lead to Libran comparisons…) since it’s a very visceral sense of what happens – the SCORPIO realm.

Have you tapped into the ‘Magic Zone’ and the Alchemy too, these days?

On the ‘Alchemy Point’ encounters happen, and  ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical and alchemical change – if we trust the Unknown…
 

Alchemy Retort. Medieval painting,. Origin unknown.

…and dig deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences, are offered now (galore!) to alchemically / psychologically / spiritually, or even ‘just’ instinctively process them.

Which can reveal hidden treasures and powerful resources that we might have buried from the world and ourselves.
We don’t know yet what’s ‘behind the veil’ and underneath the cover. That’s the whole point.
Who knows what comes from that?!
 

A lot (JUPITER) is due for transformation now.
In Society and the World at large, and in our personal inner worlds.
My sense is, A LOT of hidden agenda will be revealed in the World which inevitably leads to change.

JUPITER in LIBRA has brought the themes of relatedness, fairness, equality, balance, and peace so strongly to our awareness…
Not that it’s ‘all good’ in that realm as ‘benefic JUPITER’ has visited that realm (as the old-world polarized / simplistic Astrology would have suggested) – in fact it can have the opposite effect.

If there’s a ‘formula’ for a JUPITER Transit, it’s more like:
The theme gets bigger, so that we can fully SEE what’s going on there (a magnifying glass effect), to create space around it,  and use the opportunities to outgrow the old.

People and other ‘partners’ (even shadow projections) have come into our lives who show us a mirror (LIBRA) of what’s due for transformation (SCO).

Now, JUPITER in SCO helps us with processing what’s ‘in the dark’ – maybe because the theme is everywhere, lots of others are ‘coming out’ with taboos and under cover issues, and massive processing is going on.

Having found good partners (LIBRA), and being in good relations with others who also go into depth and darkness (SCO) can help. Whether they are physically present, or whether there’s lots of space between you – even all around the globe (JUPITER).
Yet, it’s of course an ‘inside job’ for everyone – with the inner JUPITERian Mentor on your side. No other person can do it ‘for you’.
It’s your inner access to nature-ALL Power (SCO). 

Power of Love?
Power of Freedom?
Finding a motto that speaks deeply to you and guides you on the Journey can help.

 

SCORPIO, PLUTO, and the Shadow

SCO is ruled by PLUTO which is more outwardly ‘active’ again as it’s going direct / forward from Earth perspective, since Sept 28, calling us to follow the Power of the ‘Body Wisdom’ (Sabian Symbol for the PLUTO Turning Point degree at 17 CAP) for empowered change.

The ‘original’ PLUTO in our chart points to our inner Power Centre in the Core of our Being, or rather:
How historic / societal conditioning has repressed and controlled our Power, and what needs to transform in us to step into it.


Similar to Persephone’s decent into the realm of PLUTO / Hades in Fall where an Initiation happens before ‘she’ and Nature come back in Spring, we might need to ‘dive’ into our inner ‘Underworld’ in the next while, for a deep regeneration and re-empowerment from within.

Perhaps to alchemically transform the ‘lead’ of ego consciousness into the ‘Gold’ of the pure Self.
Not by ‘killing’ the ego (which still comes from a dualistic / separative ego consciousness) but by making it conscious, by exposing the dark and sticky attachments that drain our energy like a vampire to the light.

Jekyll / Hyde

How do we recognize the ego’s ways?
In SCO, it ‘should be’ actually quite easy because it can get so intense when it displays low vibrational responses of…
…obsessions, compulsions, and various needs for control, as if there were inner demons that have a hold on you, or ‘hungry ghosts’ (a Buddhist term for desires that can never be satisfied – the belly is always bigger than the mouth).
And since these things are embarrassing, there’s a shame factor involved as well that keeps things under wraps – which can create a vicious circle.

The energy is often released through behavioral symptoms like being secretive, involving ‘allies’ into one’s ’cause’ and controlling them, being cynical, hurtful (knowing where to ‘bite’ others in their vulnerable side) in order to not get hurt, being manipulative…
Sometimes behind all this is a deep fear of death – the ultimate loss of control.
In SCO strong and deep emotions (SCO is a fixed Water sign) can be hermetically sealed in the Alchemy retort.

JUPITER in SCO brings Awareness to all this, has us face our hidden sides, inner darkness and inner light, and (RE)discover our Soul Power that’s the catalyst for change.

Awareness, witnessing, and holding space (JUPITER) is often ‘all’ it takes to let things run their course and to outgrow them gradually.
After all, the pristine Lotus Flower too, is rooted in the murky Scorpionic swamp.

 

Here is the JUPITER-into SCORPIO chart – viewed from Victoria BC.

 

As you see, JUPITER leads into SCO.
It catalyzes the other planetary Archetypes and their alignments into the Alchemy:

SUN / MERCURY – rather than letting the Mind run the show, be mindful and conscious of what’s going on;
VENUS / MARS opposing CHIRON, in T-square with SATURN / LILITH – rather than a wounding battle of the sexes that goes nowhere, except into old patterns and beliefs, a sacred union that heals and points to the ultimate unknowable…

MERCURY (on Oct 17), the SUN (on Oct 22), VENUS (on Nov 1), and MARS (on Dec 9) will follow into SCORPIO.
When these personal planets / planetary Archetypes unite with JUPITER their qualities get enhanced through a deepening:

MERCURY / JUPITER (Oct 19): More depth through communication that goes under the skin.
SUN / JUPITER (Oct 26 – also the day of MOON / PLUTO!): Massive Consciousness about the Change that’s needed and is under way.
VENUS / JUPITER (Nov 13): Magnetized by the Power of Love.
MARS / JUPITER (Jan 7): Radical Purge and Transformation.

Every month, the intense and powerful SCORPIO MOON will unite with JUPITER which can evoke deep, amplified emotions – quite the time for purging and alchemical change from within – maybe after a few rounds. Be gentle with yourself and your environment, as you get ‘a hang of it’. And have a MOON calendar at hand..
First encounters of JUPITER / MOON in SCO:
Oct 19 (right after the late LI New Moon!), Nov 16, Dec 14.

 

JUPITER’s Gifts for SCORPIOS & SCORPIO Mini Generations


JUPITER in SCO offers this year extraordinary opportunities for a deepening and expansion of consciousness for whole groups of ‘SCO Mini Generations’, and of course for everyone with SUN, MOON, AC, and personal Planets (MERCURY, VENUS, MARS) in SCO.


Whichever Planetary Archetype is in SCO for you gets enhanced – with the opportunity to be alchemically transformed into coming even more from Soul Power – which changes everything.

What are the ‘SCORPIO Mini Generations’?
All of us born with slow moving, societal (JUPITER, CHIRON, SATURN) and transpersonal, evolutionary Planets (URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in SCORPIO.

And that’s a LOT of us!
B.t.w., I give the whole time spectrum from first entry into SCO until final exit, incl. brief intervals back in LIBRA or forward in SAG. In doubt get in touch with me, and I can let you know from your birth chart, or set up your chart if you don’t have it yet.

Here are the ‘Mini Generations’, with ‘working titles’.
Expanding on their generational themes would be a topic for another, extensive blog post – perhaps during JUPITER in SCO?

PLUTO in SCO – The Magicians
Nov 1983 – Nov 1995

NEPTUNE in SCO – The Mystics
Oct 1956 – Nov 1970

URANUS in SCO – The Liberators
Nov 1974 – Nov 1981

CHIRON in SCO – The Shamans
Nov 1946 – Nov 1948
Jan 1997 – Sept 1999

SATURN in SCO – The Masters of Transformation
Oct 1953 – Oct 1956
Dec 1982 – Nov 1985
Oct 2012 – Sept 2015

North Node in SCO – New Values through Deep Change
Oct 1956 – May 1958
June 1975 – Dec 1976
Jan 1994 – Aug 1995
Sept 2012 – March 2014

JUPITER in SCO – Deep Dive into the Alchemy
Oct 1934 – Nov 1935
Sept 1946 – Oct 1947
Jan 1958 – Oct 1959
Dec 1969 – Feb 1972
Dec 1981 – Dec 1982
Nov 1993 – Dec 1994
Nov 2005 – Nov 2006

 

These phases of Planets moving through SCORPIO had a certain signature / Zeitgeist.
Maybe you remember some of them, how they changed you, through going through a deep psychological process, esp. related to the area in your life related to the SCORPIO House in your chart. 

 

Now, as JUPITER initiates SCORPIO again, we’re all exposed to more depth, to SEE and be fully aware of what’s been hidden (incl. what we were hiding from ourselves), to process and purge deep stuff and ‘dark matter’, and allow it to transform into pure ‘Gold’.

May we come out deeply changed, perhaps like a Phoenix out of the Ashes, having burnt off and outgrown old consciousness, when JUPITER crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ on Nov 9, 2018!

 

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

ARIES – LIBRA Harvest Moon 2017: Wake Up, Be Fully YOU, and Bring Your Authentic Nature into Cooperation and Partnership!

4 Oct

Boom!
The ARIES MOON is here-now, since 1:40 pm PDT today Oct 4 – opening the scene for her exact Fullness, opposite the LIBRA SUN, tomorrow, Oct 5 at 11:40 am PDT.

The warm and golden early October SUN and the crispy-fresh moonlit nights this week have been such a beautiful gift of contrast and balance.

Balance and Freshness by the Water (and what a way of being a West-Coast child!) –               Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

 

The first Full Moon in Fall is coming up!
It’s the Harvest Moon – the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox!

 

A good time to check in, what’s coming to Fruition, in this Harvest time – not just from the Summer, but from longer phases!

Soo much has been stirred up and in turmoil in the social and public world, and for many of us privately too in the last weeks, as URANUS the Shake-up / Wake-up Liberator yet also disruptive, shocking, and traumatizing force turned direct / forward at the very end of ARIES, in early August.

  • How have you set yourself FREE from being bombarded with news that could easily re-traumatize something latent in you?
  • What do you DO about moving courageously forward in your life and in this world?
  • What’s waking up in you?

 

MARS, the ruler of ARIES, has been travelling close to the SUN this Summer which heated up the atmosphere, and it’s been sadly literally a record year for out-of-control wildfires here in the West.
Hope you found positive passionate outlets for MARS / SUN this Summer! 
The SUN is gradually further ahead of MARS now, loosening the heated Yang type combo, plus, the present LIBRA SUN is ruled by VENUS, and more conducive to the dance and negotiation in partnership than than battling with fire and fury.
Additionally, up until tomorrow, Oct 5, MARS has been ahead of VENUS (since Spring 2016!), and we’ve seen the effects of a MARS driven world all too well.
This too is changing, as VENUS will pass MARS, just hours before the Full Moon.
Please find my VENUS / MARS blog post here, for more in-depth info (incl. the Sabian Symbol for their union).

  • What’s cooking for you, in the Conscious Cooperation Caravan?

 

Also JUPITER is coming to the end of its 11-month journey through LIBRA next week, on Oct 10, when it moves over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO (until Nov 9, 2018).
Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts by JUPITER with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart is what has been ‘blown up’ so that there can be more space around it that allows for (mutual) growth.


‘Even’ good ole SATURN comes to the end of the SAG finish line soon – on Dec 19 – where it’s been since Sept 2015, challenging us to focus on the light and on what matters, in a world of distraction and disorientation.

Harvest review:

  • How do you stay on track on your intrinsic path?
  • When challenges and ‘obstacles’ show up, can you recognize them for what they are, adjust the course or our approach, and take the teaching and guidance?
  • How have you been able to not loose heart, with what you see in the world
  • What keeps you moving forward with your vision? Where’s your WHY?
  • Where does the journey go NOW, and what motivated you now, compared to 2 years ago?

 

We’re in the build-up time for this ARIES Full Moon that’s a ‘fierce midwife to URANUS’, the Awakener and Revolutionary Archetype.

When the BS hits the fan there’s no holding back – so much is bursting out now, as in ARIES – emergence / emergency. Quite the wake-up call, for The Feminine (MOON) and for The People.

In traditional Astrology, the MOON is the Archetype of the People vs. the SUN is the King / Queen / Ruler. I know, this societal model is outdated, and up for evolutionary change, but hey, it’s been symbolically still in effect, and currently again in full force, as seen in places like Catalunya striving for its independence from Spain (see yesterday’s Astro blog about it, with the charts of Barcelona and Spain).
It illustrates what’s going on and shaken up at so many places and in so many ways:
The People (MOON in ARIES) come out and stand up: “Hey, this is US, our Catalan identity can’t be repressed (PLUTO in CAP), our voice must be heard, we’re not in this anymore, and we might pro-actively declare our independence.” Suspense in Spain…

Speaking one’s Truth, and being on the Path is very ‘loaded’ now. The Full Moon will be in the central LEO part of ARIES, and URANUS is in the Sagittarian part of ARIES – linking over in a trine to SATURN in SAG – the end of ‘old stories and beliefs’.
What stories are wanna-be leaders trying to tell us?
We’re not living by ‘old stories and dogmatic laws and beliefs anymore.

 

Calling for a Revolution?

Angel_of_Revelation _W.Blake

Angel of Revelation, Painting by William Blake

The Inner Revolution and Liberation has begun for so many of us, in fact, is HERE when we wake up from the past, from the dream, from anything that keeps us from living in the NOW.

Since the ARIES FULL MOON is close to URANUS (and will meet URANUS on Oct 6, the door to spiritual awakening is open.

Upon waking up (“What a crazy nightmare was that???” or “Was I dull, not really alive, apathetic, and paralyzed?”), a freedom FOR a conscious new start, a new blossoming, and / or: An alert presence in the I AM can ‘take over’.

 

What’s LIBRA got to do with it?

DSC01889


It offers questions like:

  • What would be conscious (SUN) choices (LIBRA) that meet the need (MOON) to be authentically, fully YOU (ARIES)? Hint – it starts with: Choose Yourself!
  • What’s negotiable (LIBRA) and what’s a deal breaker (URANUS in ARIES)?
  • How could a partnership look like (LIBRA) that brings out the partners’ liberated beingness (URANUS in ARIES) where the light is reflected to one another?
  • Baby steps at a time (ARIES) are fine and normal.
  • Too much sitting on the fence, weighing and waiting (for the other to make a move, for ‘something’ to happen and tip the scale) doesn’t do it much longer. JUPITER ‘had it’ and crosses over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCO on Oct 10. Choices create change!

Lots of questions to consider, says SUN / MERCURY, not far from JUPITER in LIBRA, on the other side of the ‘equation’.
Yet, i.m.o., being truly, spontaneously authentic in the Self naturally supports good choices, and things don’t ‘stick’ so much in relationships that need to be ‘ironed out’ again.
I know, it can be a balancing act to bring one’s true authentic Nature into relationship – but it’s actually more from the perspective of the conditioned Self an ‘issue’ than from the free, authentic Self.

 

And then, what a beautiful cosmic reflection showing up also tomorrow:

YinYang Infinite

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

On the DAY of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon will be also the union (every 2 years only) of VENUS and MARS (see today’s blog post for this theme)!

May cooperation (VENUS) rather than competition and confrontation (MARS) lead the way now!

May the world, humanity, and everyone of us be more / come back into integrity (VIR), and may right relationship/s in dynamic, ‘juicy’ synergy help us with conscious, creative cooperation!


VENUS goes into square with SATURN on Oct 8, and MARS on Oct 9:
Specifics and ‘details’ can make things complicated and create conflict and stagnation – or just need to be ‘ironed out’ to open the path for the YES.

VENUS will go into opposition with CHIRON in PISCES on Oct 10, and MARS on Oct 15:
Integrity in adaptive Fluidity can be the Medicine.

 

Voila – here is the chart for the exact ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon tomorrow Oct 5, at 11:40 am PDT, as viewed from Victoria BC:

AR - LI FM 2017

You see the Full Moon Axis of the MOON in mid-ARIES (with LEO undertone – Be Fully and authentically YOU!) not far from URANUS end of ARIES which is in mutually enhancing Fire trine with SATURN / LILITH in late SAG.
LILITH is now in the area pointing to the Galactic Centre where we deeply trust the ultimately Unknown – to reveal our True Nature in the ‘Journey’.

The SUN and MERCURY bring contrasting balance in mid-LIBRA (with an AQ undertone):

  • How can we consciously cooperate for Peace, Justice, Fairness, Equality? It takes a team / group / circle / humanity.
  • What’s a well-suited cooperation and partnership – esp. with others who show up in the area of life where LIBRA is in your chart?
    If they aren’t naturally compatible how can you bring yourself into balance and be at peace with what IS?

MERCURY will go into opposition with URANUS on Oct 15, and the SUN on Oct 19 (the day of the LIBRA New Moon) which can be quite a dilemma between ‘Us’ and ‘Me’ or convention and spontaneous action. It can also resolve the tension from JUPITER opp. URANUS since last Winter. May there be a consciously chosen win-win!

PLUTO, still stationary (went direct on Sept 29) in mid-CAP is the apex (= outlet) of a wide cardinal T-square with the Full Moon axis!

What does PLUTO in CAP point to, where can the change be sourced, and what can the state of things change into?

  • The Power of TIME and Timeliness.
    How do we know when’s the ‘right & ripe time’, esp. when making choices that involve / are dependent on others (LIBRA) while you might want to move forward or it’s not really your gig (ARIES)?
    Astrology helps through showing us the cosmic cycles, and how to align with them. Natural inner knowing and alignment helps too. Don’t let yourself get guilt-tripped (“You should do this for… them”) or pressured (“You should be already…. doing this”) in this ever so 24/7 production mode world (which isn’t really all that productive, if natural cycles of rest and regeneration aren’t honoured.
    So perhaps the Power of TIME means to slow down, smell the Roses, and let things naturally ripen until their Harvest time comes…?
  • Honouring the Elders, and Receiving Guidance.
    Elders may be biological Elders, Spirit Elders, the Spirit of the ‘Old World’…
    Being in (LIBRA) partnership with them, and guided (CAP) by and to them can be very powerful – IF you hear the call (SATURN, the ruler of CAP is now in SAG, testing us to find where the most important YES is).
  • Working Well with Resources. Being Resourceful.
    Which ties into Time and Natural Laws…

    Working respectfully with the cycles of nature, incl. our own nature, the human life cycle, and day-to-day cycles. CAP traditionally works with the Land, and cooperates with Nature. When and where is a good time / place to seed / plant / harvest?
    There’s simplicity and beauty in this. Can we apply it again more into our lives?
    CAP says: I use (I use what’s here and make the best out of it, I’m resourceful).
    The shadow would be to abuse, over-use, and the lack would be to under-use what’s sitting somewhere, and would be a helpful resource.
    Bottom line: Time for an inventory (LIBRA / CAP) / invent-ory (URANUS in ARIES).
  • Wisdom of the Body.
    The most obvious ‘earthly’ resource ‘close to us’ is our body, of course. Mid-CAP where PLUTO is now has also a TAURUS undertone – TAU rules bodily sensation.

    Don’t let yourself get de-stabilized from chaos and imbalance around (low grade experience of UR in AR). Find and stand your ground.
    So yeah, let’s definitely bring the wisdom of the body in, for wise choices, and empowering change, while being in our authentic Self!

 

JUPITER, on the brink of leaving LIBRA, will enter SCORPIO on Oct 10, to move through the Magical Zodiac zone until Nov 9, 2018.

Johfra Bosschart: VENUS rules LIBRA

The painting to the left by Johfra Bosschart contains a lot of esoteric symbolism.

I chose it to illustrate an important aspect of the transition from LIBRA to SCORPIO (upper part of the picture):

In the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Ibis-headed Thoth to the left with the double-serpent and Cow-headed Hathor to the right weigh the heart of the deceased (in an urn) against the feather of Ma’at (Goddess of Justice).
May in any significant choice point and transition our heart be unburdened, and as light as a feather!

 
The transition from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not only the ‘Tipping Point’ (the scales tip, the choice is being made – or it’s a ‘choiceless choice’! – and inevitably leads to change), but also an ‘Alchemy Point’ where ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical change – if we trust the Unknown.
 
Yet it also shows what’s hidden and covered, and makes it worthwhile visiting and digging deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences. To bring forth treasures that we might have buried from the world and ourselves. Who knows what comes from that?!
 
More to come, in a special JUPITER into SCORPIO blog post next week.
 
I felt called to offer JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Sessions, for the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

 

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’, and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, for perspective at a crossroad or dilemma, and for empowered choices.

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you in being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships with others.
Plus, I can help you determine your powerful places on Planet Earth.

VENUS passes MARS (Oct 5), just before the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon: Conscious Cooperation!

4 Oct


On Oct 3, VENUS in VIR, just ‘behind’ MARS, went into Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP: 

With all the violence and aggression in this world: 
Love is THE SuperPower! ❤

 

Tomorrow Oct 5, VENUS will catch up, unite with, and finally pass MARS in VIRGO!

Greek Vase with Ares (Mars) on one side…

 

MARS has been ahead of VENUS since Spring 2016, and we’ve seen the effects of a MARS driven world….

VENUS in (MARS ruled) ARIES almost passed MARS early March this year (when a lot of Women Warriors stepped up against chauvinism, esp. in and inspired by the U.S.
But then, VENUS  went retro to RE-new herself and her inner values in spiritual and unifying PISCES, while some of the peace loving energy might have gone passive and giving up and feeling powerless facing ‘what is’.
Yet there’s been a powerful movement and there are forces that have been holding space energetically for Peace and Love in the ‘invisible realm’ all along, emerging in us and through us when we act with the Power of Love.

In the meantime the ‘Warrior Planet’ MARS stormed ahead… and we’ve seen a lot of evidence for its presence. Not much evidence for the fine art of diplomacy…

…and Aphrodite (Venus) on the other side.

 

VENUS is coming though… in the sign of the Sacred Feminine, VIRGO, where ‘she’ meets and passes MARS – tomorrow.

Leaving behind outmoded and destructive confrontation (MARS).


May the world, humanity, and everyone of us come back into integrity and alignment (VIR), with right relationship/s and in cooperation (VENUS)!

 


VENUS goes into square with SATURN on Oct 8, and MARS on Oct 9:
Specifics and ‘details’ can make things complicated and create conflict and stagnation – or just need to be ‘ironed out’ to open the path for the YES.

VENUS will go into opposition with CHIRON in PISCES on Oct 10, and MARS on Oct 15:
Integrity in adaptive Fluidity can be the Medicine.

 

Let’s see what the SABIAN SYMBOL for the VENUS / MARS conjunction tells us:

VIRGO 20°:
A CARAVAN OF CARS HEADED TO THE WEST COAST.

KEYNOTE:
The need of cooperative effort in reaching any “New World” of experience.

It is difficult to know, from the original formulation of the clairvoyant’s vision, the type of caravan of cars that was visualized; what seems to be clearly implied is a process in which a group of persons are journeying together — thus linking their consciousnesses and energies (the “car” symbol) — in order to safely reach the goal of destiny. Here there is no longer any sense of competition, but an ordered and structured endeavor.

At this last stage of the five-fold sequence the past is entirely left behind; humans cooperate in the great “adventure in consciousness” in a TOTALIZATION OF PURPOSE AND EFFORT.”

 

Tomorrow Oct 5 will be also the day of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon!
Balance (FM) and Union (VENUS / MARS) of Feminine and Masculine.
 

Calling us to show up as the Warriors of LOVE, in Conscious Cooperation!
