How has your VENUS retro / JUPITER – SATURN ‘square dance’ journey been so far?
Are you drawn to standing in the full light of your loving Beingness (LEO), to Live Life Lovingly, and ‘operate’ / work from there, in pure alignment, inspired by the Sacred Feminine in her temple (VIR)? Alignment is crucial for Virgo.

The Venus retrograde phase has been a checking in on our values, desires, connections, and attractions.
And, even more so, it’s a RE-newal and RE-alignment of the Inner Feminine with Spirit (the SUN) – tomorrow!
With the LEO / Sphinx Point vibe be aware of your attraction to show / performance / narcissism, as a compensation for the need to be seen and loved, vs. true intrinsic Self-love, and radiance through Spirit, in natural Self Awareness.
• What makes you unconditionally happy from within?
• What’s the Truth about the Love of the Self?

This Summer and Fall, old, limiting relationship patterns are ‘doomed to die’:
VENUS squares off with SATURN not only once (which happens twice a year) but 3 times (happened already on July 13, and Aug 4, and once more on Oct 10).

This dynamic can appear as a cooling off / difficulties in relationships and challenges with choices we make – which tests us: is this REALLY a good match – or what really is the purpose of this alliance / contract / choice?

VENUS RETRO per se is also a turning away from being stuck in unsustainable relationship patterns with a focus on the other person, to finding intrinsic value and Self Love and heart connection (VENUS / SUN), from which we can attract more authentically – without ‘needing a relationship’.

 

Overview of the 3 VENUS – SATURN Squares:

July 13:

While VENUS was direct in LEO, and SATURN retro in SCO: Attracting from old patterns – which trigger deep painful stuff.

Aug 5:

VENUS in the meantime – since July 25 retro, back in LEO, and SATURN direct in late SCO: ‘She’ retreats… . ‘Just saying NO’ to what’s not a good fit from a deeper (Scorpio) place, even though it may ‘look good’ and pamper the ego – or bring out more drama (Leo). No more getting ‘sucked in’ (SATURN in Scorpio can help us with boundaries there) into others’ agenda. Knowing who we are, and coming into RE-alignment with ourselves, we have to stop these patterns. Out of healthy self-love.

Oct 10:

VENUS in VIR – after the retro phase, as the ‘Morning Star’, and SATURN in SAG, both direct: Knowing what’s good, healthy, and functional for us and what our values are, we can now commit to a new focus and intentional journey.

The triple VENUS – SATURN SQUARE brings out our old contracts, to acknowledge and complete them. What’s an old contract? A soul connection, where both people on a soul level agreed to help each other heal something – even though it doesn’t ‘taste good’, can be very intense, and as challenging it is to interact with one another there can be a deeper purpose of why you got together in ‘real life’. This doesn’t mean, stick it out together. What matters is to address and acknowledge the ‘chosen challenge’. And give it time, or say clearly and consciously, NO MORE.

Here is again (some of you have asked me to re-post) the excellent talk by Matt Kahn, re: Soul Contracts, Twin Flames, and Soul Mates. A powerful ‘paradigm shifter’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2da2CQEyy0

Plus, JUPITER in the ‘mix’ as well, enhances VENUS, and makes the theme bigger, which actually helps us to get a bigger understanding of what’s going on, and that we need to give relationships more SPACE, and our true self more room to grow.

Here’s the TRIPLE VENUS – JUPITER ‘itinerary’ again in overview:

July 1:

First conjunction of both VENUS and JUPITER (remember their dance in the evening sky?) in LEO – the DAY of the Full Moon: Big drama? Lots of Summer fun? What’s going on underneath? Well, the meetings of VENUS in LEO with SATURN in SCORPIO are a depth / reality check.

Aug 4:

VENUS retro, back in LEO, and together with JUPITER connected with LEO’s brightest star REGULUS, near the ‘Sphinx Point’ on the cusp to VIRGO: Self-awareness shows. It might tell us that we engaged in an attraction pattern because we wanted to be seen and loved – and so did they.

Oct 25:

VENUS direct again (from Sept 6 on), and now both VENUS and JUPITER in VIR: Healthy Self-love: We don’t ‘need’ a relationship, are self-sufficient, and aligned with what serves us and the whole. We enjoy the service we offer in the world. Attraction from there can follow. Maybe we (RE)connect with loved ones in a way that shows us why our Love matters….

 

In this VENUS RETRO cycle, TODAY, Aug 15 the the half-way point ‘, Day of the SUN – VENUS alignment (both in radiant LEO!), and the ‘Birth of the New VENUS’.
Interesting that in the mythology of the Birth of VENUS, SATURN as the castrator was also involved. If you’re not aware of the story here is a good link that describes connections of Venus with other goddesses as well: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Venus_(mythology) .

 

The meeting of the ‘NEW VENUS with the SUN today, and ‘her’ moving ‘behind’ the SUN in the Zodiac is what brings VENUS back as a ‘Morning Star’ – visible again before dawn from early Sept on. ‘She’ will leave her retro phase on Sept 6.
Spirit / Heart / Consciousness leads again, in our values, choices, and relationships.

Aug 15 happens to be also quite the ‘Goddess Day’ in the Catholic calendar: The heavenly ascension / assumption of Virgin-Mother Mary https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assumption_of_Mary.

Plus:
On Aug 19 VENUS retro in LEO trines URANUS retro in ARIES!
The newly RE-born VENUS goes also into a truly liberating (or at least ‘surprise effect’) alignment with the Promethean planet.
From an authentic RE-connection with Spirit, Heart, Consciousness (VENUS – SUN), it’s easy to show up as we are, authentic and ‘naked’, in the moment.
