Friday the 13th with VENUS-URANUS: Divine & Liberated Feminine Calling…

11 Mar

Dear Ones,

Let’s honour VENUS!


She shows up as a beautiful bright shining ‘Evening Star’ these weeks – preparing for Her retro Journey
(every 1 1/2 years) May 12 – June 24.
And She shows us something about Love & Liberte – as she united with URANUS on the eve of the last Full MOON in VIRGO – SuperPISCES, on March 8
(yes, Women’s Day that-is, yet every day is Women’s Day!)
The VENUS – URANUS pairing comes only once a year. 


With the union of VENUS
(March 4 – Apr 3) & URANUS (2019 – 2026) in TAURUS, the motto is:
EnJoy freely and without attachment – follow the body. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with – could be Freedom itself! Freedom from, for, and without any attribute and ‘opposite’ / other.

 

And what does that have to do with Friday the 13th?, you may ask…

A LOT.
Since that’s a VENUS-MOON Day
(yes! Again it’s time to debunk the old superstition myth!), and it catalyzes all things VENUS & MOON. Basically all week, bridging over from VENUS – URANUS / Full MOON to Friday the 13th.

So here’s to liberation (URANUS) from repressive institutions:
Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world (and Church fed conditioning) would want us to believe…
It is actually a VENUS / MOON Day – related to Goddess and the Divine Feminine.

This is the first Friday the 13th this year.
# 2 will be in November.

 

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 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 that’s the case for VENUS and Friday.

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

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

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

…while tomorrow Thu and on Fri the MOON will be in SCORPIO – trad. the ‘most challenged’ lunar position (according to the dignity system, the MOON is in ‘Fall’ in SCO) – yet that’s another matrix. This is the lunar energy that gets us to the depth and core of our feelings – not to get stuck there in the dark, but to move through, and regenerate from within.
Change happens nature-ally – let it be IN and through US!

 

Let’s celebrate Friday the 13th – and beyond! – by honouring Mother Nature & Goddess Power, and let them take us through the darkness, where we find hidden treasures! 

 

With Nature-All Goddess Love,
Melanie

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

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.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in 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 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.

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

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

Friday the 13th with VENUS – PLUTO: The Power in the Feminine – Falling in Love with the Divine Within

8 Dec

Dear Ones,

Let’s honour VENUS – She plays a big role this month, and can help us with choosing to step UP into our full Potential that Soul calls forth, esp. as she meets up with PLUTO.

And what does that have to do with Friday the 13th?, you may ask…

A LOT.
Since it’s not only a VENUS-MOON Day
(yes! Again it’s time to debunk the old superstition myth), but VENUS will also align with PLUTO (once a year) on that very day!
Plus it’ll be just 1-2 days after the GEMINI – SAG Full MOON on Dec 11/12
(depending on where you are on Planet Earth).

 

This is the second Friday the 13th this year.
# 1 was in September – on the very day of the PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon!
Remember?
A lot happened since.
This Full MOON & Friday the 13th week is astrologically in dynamic 3-months square tension with Sept 13.

Don’t know about you.
But I found in clients’ and my own life, since that time a lot has happened (very much apropos the MARS character of the square). There’s been massive deep shedding, and a strengthening effect of ‘no way back’ into the ‘old skin’.

PLUTO in CAP facilitated the Snake Effect as it turned from retro to direct on Oct 3, and we’ve had a phase of multiple SCORPIO activations since then:
MERCURY – retro Oct 31 – Nov 20, and in SCO since Oct 3 will move on /up into SAG tomorrow Dec 9, after 9 1/2(!) weeks in SCO – pretty much a record for MERCURY to be in one sign. The SUN and VENUS have also been in and through SCO since, and MARS is still helping us purge through the deepest sign of the Zodiac – until Jan 3.

 

VENUS now in CAP (since Nov 25, until Dec 19) will connect with PLUTO (once a year) ON Friday the 13th and also be close to SATURN (united on Dec 11 – the very Day of the Full Moon).
Sounds ominous, on top of a day fraught with superstition?

Well, another occasion to debunk the myth & programming – by power structures.

 

Starting with VENUS – PLUTO in CAP:
It happens once a year, yet this one will be very powerful, since there’s SO much else going on in the realm of CAP already. And their union is a precursor for several historic shifts in 2020, starting with the much anticipated SATURN-PLUTO conjunction (every 38 years) on Jan 12 in CAP (with lots of planetary energy in CAP wrapped around).
Power (PLUTO) structures (SATURN) on all (outer and internalized) levels that aren’t in integrity / core alignment with what they stand for and not sustainable need to transform / be ‘composted’ to make room for evolution – and for Time and Life to be reclaimed from the ‘monster that eats it all’. No more selling of the Soul.

With VENUS – PLUTO so prominently placed in cosmic space and earthly time (just 12 days before Christmas) it’s a high yet priority call to let Love be the Change Agent. Esp. in the rock-solid and ‘very real’ CAP terrain of experience where fear & control, accomplishment & outcome, performing & conforming, responsibility & hard work, status & acknowledgment seem to dominate. “Show me the evidence! / “What do you have to show for?”.

And to transform through Soul Power – connection with the Divine & Timeless within – what seems hard and difficult to attain, a long and arduous road (CAP) to being a Magnet (VENUS) for attracting what’s best for the Soul’s Purpose.

The best mapped-out plans & resolutions (CAP) can’t come near the perfection of Divine Intelligence.
So yes, a time to fall in Love with Source, under VENUS – PLUTO, and in that vibration to know we’re sustained by Life, by Nature.

Being sourced by the Divine Within with VENUS-PLUTO Power, how can we buy into ‘traditional’ limiting beliefs altogether?
And esp. one coming from repressive institutions:

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world (and Church fed conditioning) would want us to believe…
It is actually a VENUS / MOON Day – related to Goddess and the Divine 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!

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.

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, just 1-2 days after the Full MOON on Dec 11 / 12.
In September Friday the 13th was even ON the Full MOON Day.

…while PLUTO in CAP was in its last weeks of retro this year – showing how the old hierarchical, patriarchal structures and systems are going extinct and transform into where the Power of Evolution / EVE-olution is going now- while still doing everything in their power to assert their legitimacy and authority – even with brutal orders and wars that mostly affect children and families.
Change happens though – let it be IN and through US!

 

This time Friday the 13th will be even on a day with the MOON in CANCER where the Lunar Goddess is ‘at Home’ – showing us: Home is Within and Nature takes care of her Children.

And this Friday the 13th, aligned with VENUS – PLUTO and the immanent SATURN – PLUTO alignment only one lunar cycle away, EVE-olution happens.
Let’s outgrow the separative in vertical (CAP) as well as horizontal ways (“Divide and Rule” – whether in Politics or Economy…) of the old and told (and believed in) through joyful co-creation in nature-all abundance. Nature does it all the time, always has.
That’s where it’s at. 

Let’s celebrate Friday the 13th – and beyond! – by honouring Mother Nature & Goddess Power, and let them bestow their abundant Gifts on us!

 

With Nature-All Goddess Love,
Melanie

Friday the 13th with VENUS in VIRGO: Divine Feminine Calling…

12 Jul

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

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world would want us believe…
It is actually a VENUS / MOON Day…

 

Let’s start with VENUS:
How’s it going, with VENUS in VIRGO (since July 9)?

  • Have you been clearing your Inner Temple?
  • Have you been honouring the inner and outer Feminine?
  • Have you become aware of ‘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 week 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’.
‘The problem’ with VENUS in VIRGO:

Our VIRGO side is so self-contained and service oriented that ‘she’ has sometimes – actually: often! – a hard time asking for help, and being open to receive. VENUS is traditionally not well placed in VIRGO (which is ruled by MERCURY) since the d.i.y. mode isn’t so geared towards attracting partners, more to ‘working on self’ and being of service to others.
VIRGO can get very busy, nervous, over-think and over-analyze situations (the MERCURY influence), and is often concerned about things that could ‘go wrong’ since it’s got an ‘imperfection and problem bias’. When that energy isn’t well channeled into work projects but turned against oneself, VIRGO deals with inadequacy issues: SO much work-on-self is apparently required to be ‘perfect’, or even ‘good enough’ – Relax, VIRGO, you are beautiful, in imperfect perfection!


Yet, when channeled into being in alignment with one’s Higher Self (see the Johfra painting), 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 where both partners are whole and complete in themselves yet chose to be together!

 

Speaking of the 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!

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, just one day after the NEW MOON in CANCER – where the MOON is ‘at home’ – a pretty exact New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse that-is!

The SUN & MOON union of the New Moon in CANCER is even opposite PLUTO retro in CAP – showing how the old hierarchical, patriarchal structures and systems are going extinct and transform into something else that evolution is about to express itself as – while still doing everything in their power to assert their legitimacy and authority – even with brutal orders and wars that mostly affect children and families.
Change happens though – let it be in and through us!

Our Humanity, Compassion and Inclusiveness brings us forward and helps us outgrow the Old and build the New, from the inside-out.

 

On Friday the 13 and beyond, let’s celebrate, and live the Divine and Sacred Feminine and Mother Nature in her life giving cycles!

Friday the 13th: Sacred Feminine Calling…

13 Apr

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

I’d rather say:
It’s time to drop and outgrow old, limiting beliefs, agendas, and stories!

For records, this is the first Friday the 13th this year. # 2 will be in July.

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 TAURUS (since March 30, until Apr 24)?

Have you been slowing down to enjoy Spring with all your senses?
Have you been consciously valuing your precious human embodiment?
Have you been honouring and celebrating the inner and outer Feminine?

 

Johfra Bosschart: Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian / Aries Warrior Takes a Rest)

 

Yes, she does – VENUS is ‘right at home’ in sensual and pleasurable TAURUS, and that’s where ‘she’ dwells on Friday the 13th – today. What do the two have to do with each other?

 

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!

Tomorrow, Saturday APR 14:VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with ‘wild’ LILITH in CAP.
Be in Nature, and in Your True Nature. Always the Best!
Then, on Sunday APR 15 is the day of the NEW MOON in ARIES, with URANUS.
Loving how this super-fresh NEW MOON follows Friday the 13.
Ha, all aligned with VENUS / MOON these days…!

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

* Friday Nov 13: Double Feminine… and Nice Alignments

13 Nov

How do you hold Friday the 13th?

What’s your sense about its reputation as a ‘bad luck’ or even scary day (uhh, maybe even more so in SCORPIO)?

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, 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.

Venus Birth Botticelli

 

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). Zodiac years have 12 – 13 New Moons and / or Full Moons per Zodiac cycle. In 2015 / 2016 we just ‘barely’ missed the 13th New Moon, since the New Moon / Total Solar Eclipse(!) on March 20 (remember?) was at 29:29 Pisces – the Sun entered ARIES only 13(!) hrs after the New Moon.
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.

 

Moon Goddess

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

So in reality 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…

This time, in the evening of Fri Nov 13, we might see the finest sliver of the crescent MOON, by then in SAG (which can laugh at it all), after passing SATURN there on Nov 12 (be done with limiting beliefs…!).

Also, on Fri Nov 13, precisely at 9:12 am PST, VENUS in ‘her’ LIBRA domain goes into sextile (a VENUS themed, pleasant, looking for communalities) aspect with SATURN in SAG, and we can see how ‘old stories’ influence our cultures and personal relationship. Can we outgrow them, and make peace with it all?

And MERCURY in SCO goes into sextile with JUPITER in VIR on the same morning, just 1 hr later: Thinking, speaking, writing about taboos, and going to the core of the matter is favoured, and supported by the bigger understanding of wholeness and integrity (nobody is ‘lesser than’, no one should be shamed or diminished).

 

FREYA’s Day the 13th

13 Mar
FEB 13 – FRIDAY is one of the 3 Fridays the 13th in 2015, after February, and next one in November:
Did you know? It’s a Sacred Feminine Day. 
Friday is related to Venus – and her Norse equivalent Freya. FREYA’s DAY.
 
On a side note:
The 7 days of the week are named after Gods and Goddesses in the Greco-Roman and Norse Pantheon:
SUNday
MOONday
TYR’sday (Mardi, Martes)
WOTAN’sday / MERCURYday
THOR’sday (Jeudi, Jueves)
FREYA’sday (Vendredi, Viernes)
SATURN’sday
Hence, we are on VENUSday today.

The number 13 is often associated with the 13 New Moons per Solar year.
In 2012, the Mayan Calendar discussion came up on a broader scale. What do you think about a 13 Moon calendar? 
Big discussion re: Calendar here: 

Seems to me Catholics were a wee bit afraid of this double whammy feminine day (Venus and Moon related), and all sorts of other stories revolve around it, to the effect of a scary movie beliefs.

SATURN now in SAG, going RETRO tomorrow March 14 says: Let’s examine what’s an old story, collectively and personally. And maybe drop some of those, or put them into a museum only. Synchronistically also, yesterday, and TODAY, Fri 13th, the MOON in SAG (our need for freedom and truth to be told) will be in GRAND FIRE TRINE (only burn with enthusiasm and in-spirited!) with

– URANUS and MARS in ARIES (exact yesterday eve): radical renewal – do something out of the ‘ordinary’, surprise yourself and others!
– JUPITER retro in LEO (also exact yesterday eve): Let your light shine, show up with heart!
and:
– VENUS in ARIES – exact at 4:11 pm PDT!

Sacred Feminine. always REborn, vibrantly!
