Aug 2 – 4 and beyond: URANIAN Wake-Up Calls. JUPITER / PLUTO Soulful Choices

3 Aug

The fiery URANIAN impulse (like an volcanic eruption, or a flash of lightning) is coming in stronger now, as URANUS just did its ‘U-turn’ at the very end of ARIES, to be on its yearly retro trip (Aug 2, 2017 – Jan 3, 2018 this time).
Mid-July to mid-Aug are very URANIAN weeks:
There may be more ‘crazy news’, and things can shift in a heartbeat, or the blink of an eye.
Let’s live NOW, not in the past or future. Let’s allow for inspiration in the moment, paradigm shifts, and liberation.
Motto:  Experimentation, no expectation! And: WAKE UP!

 

More fiery energy comets through the fiery (but now as explosive as URANUS) square, from JUPITER in mid-LIBRA to PLUTO retro in mid-CAP (exact tomorrow Aug 4). This is the 3rd of 3 exact squares (Nov 24, 2016, March 30 and Aug 4, 2017):
A pressure to make wise choices, esp. in relationships of all kinds, so that they serve the best purpose. Forget about going into old conditioned (even ancestral) patterns of ‘shoulds’, of taking too much on and feeling resentful, or like wasting your time (heaaaavy CAP energy needs to be purged), or being ‘too nice’ and accommodating while things are actually imbalanced – LIBRAN themes get a JUPITERIAN magnifying glass this year.

What ARE good soul (PLUTO) synergies (LI) that enhance life (JUPITER) and bring out your best, mature qualities (CAP)?
Let’s choose wisely! And save a lot of time and energy…


Well, some ‘soul relationships’ (PLUTO square JUPITER in LI) that we may or may not have consciously chosen yet attracted anyhow are occasionally quite ‘uncomfortable’ when they purge and ‘burn off’ the egos…. All part of the game..

There’s a LOT to this, on personal, interpersonal, and collective levels…, now brought up and transformed.

 

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships.

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 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!

* JUPITER in ‘Square Dance’ with VENUS / PLUTO (exact Nov 24 / 25): Balance and Integrity in Relationships on all Levels, and with All our Relations.

24 Nov

JUPITER entered LIBRA on Sept 9, for 1 year and 1 month, until Oct 10, 2017, and the issues of choices, relationships and agreements / contracts, balance, justice, fairness, harmony, peace become ‘bigger’, and we become aware how important they are.  

Today Nov 24 – U.S. Thanksgiving Day, JUPITER in LIBRA (conjunct SATURN in the U.S. chart) is for the first time (again March 30 and Aug 4, 2017) square PLUTO in CAP. VENUS will join and pass PLUTO tomorrow Nov 25. Sounds like a strange ‘square dance’ indeed.

And we see heightened tension and conflict over issues of integrity, sustainability, respect and wise use of natural resources (all CAP themes). PLUTO brings up the ugly face of how humans and human structures have abused, wasted, and disrespected the Earth, esp. since PLUTO was the last time in CAP in the late 18th century. PLUTO shows where what’s unsustainable and destructive must change and regenerate from the core (not just on the surface).

 

Earth YinYang

 

Makes me think of the North Dakota Water Protectors immediately. Water IS essential, WATER IS LIFE. Perhaps with JUPITER and VENUS entering the picture now, more supportive attention is drawn to the issue now – I read the United Nations considered intervening. There is a lot of public awareness – in the social media, yet strangely enough, Bernie Sanders seems to be the only prominent politician who takes a clear pronounced stand – against the pipeline (“Black snake” – very PLUTO), and for protection of Native land and natural resources of. Bernie was born with VENUS in LIBRA opp. his MOON / MARS in ARIES (which is transited by URANUS this year and next – very raw and revolutionary).
Looks like we’ll hear more about clashes of radical warriors (URANUS in ARIES, also on the U.S. CHIRON) and established power institutions that seem to become more militarized now even (PLUTO in CAP) as URANUS will square the U.S. PLUTO in the next 2 years.

In our personal lives, ‘being the change’ and bringing our soul-full potential to the table at these intense times of accelerating (URANUS) deep change (PLUTO in CAP) has to do with being alert and awake, and doing what needs to be done in the moment (URANUS), while honouring and enhancing peace, fairness, and balance (JUPITER in LI – which approaches opposition with URANUS, exact Dec 26).

Societally, there is urgency (UR in AR) to act NOW, in order to maintain and protect balance in nature, and so that ecosystems and species can not only survive (AR) but regenerate (PLU).

It’s also a heightened time for the ‘fine art’ of balance between being true to ourselves (AR) while bringing any kind of relationships (LIBRA) to a new level that serves the highest purpose (CAP). What doesn’t, and can’t sustain is being purged, transformed, and ‘repurposed’, in this Plutonic, cathartic clearing process.

 

Speaking of Relationships:

Are you aware that relationships are one of the main focuses and service fields in my Astrology consulting practice?

  • As a couple come to a session together (whether in person or via skype) to shed light on their dynamics and evolution of your relationship, from a ‘cosmic perspective’.
  • Or come by yourself, and we explore relationship themes for you and your partner (with their permission).
  • I also offer group relationship sessions (for 3+ people in a group setting).
  • Good news on the financial side:
    I’ll offer Treat Time again (offer to come, stay tuned for the blog post!) Dec 1 – 21 where you get 20-30% discount on sessions, plus 2-for-1 sessions available!

Feel free to send me a message to licht@islandnet.com or call me (250 381 4299) if you have questions how a relationship session could look like, and what it involves.
