VENUS – PLUTO – JUPITER Week: Wise Choices from Soul Purpose

15 Aug

In this TOTAL SO(U)LAR ECLIPSE count-down week, it seems like so much is closing and renewing now – a massive and profound INITIATION is taking place:

Solar Eclipse Total Diamond Ring

Total Solar Eclipse with ‘Diamond Ring’ effect

Less than 7 days to go:

The AUG 21 Total Solar Eclipse on the ‘SPHINX POINT’, where LEO meets VIRGO!

Themes are: 
Self Awareness
Putting our Love into Service
Showing our Brightness in the Work we do

A TSE is a RE-set / RE-boot

An intense, exact NEW MOON: 

The end of an old cycle (could be even of the last 18 years when the last TSE with the North Node was in LEO – on Aug 11, 1999 – visible over Europe).
Stay tuned for the ECLIPSE post that will also show how this TSE links to the Aug 1999 TSE!
And the beginning of a new cycle, through a metamorphosis.
This Eclipse with the NORTH Node emphasizes on New Beginnings.


Where is the Self Awareness been directed?
Into all the Archetypes that are presently activated.
This week: Mostly VENUS!

Today Aug 15, VENUS in CANCER opposes PLUTO retro in CAPRICORN.
Tomorrow / Thu Aug 16 / 17, VENUS squares JUPITER in LIBRA.

Clearly, important decisions (the yang / masculine way of experiencing this) have to be made, and choices (the yin / feminine way of experiencing it) are available.
JUPITER in LIBRA this year (Sept 9, 2016 – Oct 10, 2017) has among other things shown us just how many choices there are, and brought up the notion to CHOOSE WISELY.
With PLUTO in CAP, deep soul work and soulful purpose is brought out of us, and we are seriously evolving, in a world / Zeitgeist that looks quite destructive to the ‘old world’ – for better or worse. Transforming structures, and old inner structures, in any case.

This theme could come to another super timely point this week, stimulated by VENUS, now in CANCER, as a catalyst:
Do you feel drawn to family? To something familiar, soothing, comforting, a place to belong? To being cared for, and care giving? A ‘mother – child’ theme…



And what does ‘the other side’ say (PLUTO in CAP)?

“Don’t regress, walk forward, even it it’s hard at times. Be the grown-up, and let others be grown-ups too. Evolve.”

“In many situations, for whatever reason, your care isn’t needed, maybe others can be there in a better capacity.
Maybe you are better ‘positioned’ elsewhere, where you are more ‘on purpose’ in the world, your time and energy is better invested, and you are a model for others.”

Can both sides be reconciled? 

What would be a wise, synergistic balance between these two? A win-win?
Clearly a soul searching dilemma. 
Hint: Don’t choose from guilt / fear, but from the depth of your love.
Starting with SELF LOVE – says also the Initiation Eclipse on the LEO – VIRGO ‘Sphinx Point’:
“Who am I?”
“How can I put my love and passion into service-in-integrity’?”

The pressure might be strong now, esp. for those of us with SUN / MOON / AC / Planets in mid-ARIES, mid-CANCER, mid-LIBRA, and mid-CAPRICORN.
It’s ok to stay with it, and see what the ECLIPSE brings.

It IS a NEW MOON – PowerHouse that is.


Blessings to You and ALL, for the Eclipse Season!

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!
