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…

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!

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.

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.
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 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 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…

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!

Friday the 13th with VENUS conj. NEPTUNE in PISCES and North Node in VIRGO: Divine Feminine Calling…

12 Jan

So how’s it going, with the North Node in VIRGO (since Oct 2015, until end of Apr 2017)?

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

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype. So let’s honour our work, our practice, our body, our alignment in ‘cosmic order’ and follow opportunities to align more fully with what’s healthy, what works, what serves us, how we can be in our ‘temple of service’.

This time,  Friday the 13th is ushered in by two beautifully harmonizing astrological alignments:

  • The Full MOON on Jan 12, in ‘her’ abode of CANCER – so motherly and nurturing.
  • VENUS, freshly in her ‘exaltation’ in PISCES meets up with NEPTUNE on Jan 12 – ethereal beauty, and universe-ALL Love!

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

* Friday the 13th – Double Feminine Day, with VENUS Trine PLUTO: Feminine RE-Empowerment

13 May

So how’s it going, with JUPITER in VIRGO now direct (forward from Earth perspective) again, since Monday? 

Do things ‘work better’? Have you become aware and clear about ‘issues’, and found remedies and recipes? Do you feel more self sufficient perhaps? Whole and complete, ‘perfect’ as you ARE…

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype. So let’s honour the temple of our work, our practice, our body, our alignment in ‘cosmic order’.
JUPITER will be still in VIRGO until Sept 9, and , in forward motion, pointing us to outer opportunities to align more fully with what’s healthy, what works, what serves us, how we can be in our ‘temple of service’. 

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?

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.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th
 

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!
