VENUS in GEMINI x MERCURY in LEO = Summer De-Light!

6 Jul

Double De-Light-ful News:

Charming VENUS (presently ‘Morning Star’, rising before the SUN) just entered GEMINI on July 4 – to breeze like a gorgeous butterfly through the airy Alchemist energy until July 31.

Have you noticed too? So many really attractive things to learn and talk about, these days!
I found a few cool podcasts, been digging into my books, and found a few good Summer reads, discovered treasures among my Astro course material – and just offered two exciting new ones (both with online participation option):
Astro Archetypes Summer Immersion – with Archetypes Pairs! 🙂 – starting July 25.
Jupiter Journaling Journey– starting Aug 2.

And then, the languages… delighting in speaking / writing French these days, juste un peu… and talking German with family…

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
And the shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word 🙂

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this month, like a flower to butterflies!
So much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.
Also, it’s a nice time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS).
And for those Summer reads…


2 major ‘dance encounters’ for VENUS in GEM:

On July 17, VENUS will go into square with NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave) in PISCES (where VENUS is exalted – ONE Love!):
Taking the GEM interests and learning to a sublime, unifying level. Asking deep ‘unanswerable’ questions that take us to the ONE.

On July 18, VENUS will go into a de-light-full trine with JUPITER in ‘her’ LIBRAN world: 
Making wise choices that really speak to the Heart. Seeing the mirror effect with partners-in-Life (on all levels). Communicating with open-hearted curiosity.

Speaking of GEMINI – its ruling planet MERCURY, the Alchemist Archetype, a.k.a. Mind Mentor, a.k.a. Trickster, just moved yesterday July 5 out of the cozy Cancer zone, into radiant LEO – noticing a shift?

Show your colours (HA, just in time for Pride week!), and speak in a confident, creative, expressive, passionate, colourful way too!
Be the Heart-ist!
Say it from the Heart, be warm and generous, and HAVE FUN!


2 major MERCURY grooves too, creating a Grand Fire Trine:

On July 17, MERCURY in LEO will go into Fire Trine with SATURN in SAG.
On July 24,
MERCURY will go into Fire Trine with (it’s ‘higher octave’) URANUS in AR.

Acknowledging ‘reality check’ (choose your journey well, and, above all: know where you COME from) leads to freedom to be YOU!


MERCURY will be in LEO until July 25, to move into VIRGO – but come BACK to LEO (yes, yes, because it’ll go retro, Aug 12 – Sept 5!) Aug 31 – Sept 9!
Lots of creative passion to discover this Summer!

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

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

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, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!
