Your True Nature is FREE – LILITH enters AQ on Aug 6 (until May 4, 2019), and URANUS goes retro on Aug 7.

3 Aug

LILITH, the Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’, or rather ‘Unconditioned Nature’ will enter Freedom loving AQUARIUS on Aug 6 –
…while URANUS, the ruling Planet of AQ is being squared by MARS (exact Aug 1), and goes retro on Aug 7 – whoa!

URANUS, the Archetype of the Awakener and Liberator ‘sitting’ in stationary (unsettling!) mode on the ‘Settling Point’ in early TAU throughout July while in square with MARS which is presently retro in URANUS ruled AQ (exact / culminating on AUG 1) – a ‘double whammy’.

It’s been indeed an erratic zigzag course of slow and stagnant ‘sitting on things’, mixed with sudden break-outs / breakthroughs which can also erupt as accidents.

MARS – URANUS brings sudden ways of disrupting old defunct energy, and perhaps release Martian anger. 
Remember, URANUS is innovative and MARS finds a way for the energy to be released – like a flash of lightning…

Ultimately, it’s about FREEDOM:
URANUS in TAU disrupts our old attachments to certain ‘comfort traps’ that prevent us from being free.

Now, as of Aug 7, URANUS joins the club of retro planets, and makes it a record of SEVEN (MERCURY, MARS, SATURN, CHIRON, URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in the first half of August.

With so much cosmic RETRO energy we’re called to go backwards / inwards, for REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to old low and unconscious perhaps karmically ‘inherited’ vibrations.
Check out my blog post about the RETRO Record Summer for the particulars.

With URANUS in early TAU going retro (Aug 7 – Jan 7) we might re-visit our inner less attached and freer Self from the past, and find the place inside that’s free, independent of Taurean security. And we’re called to find freedom in the physically embodied self (and don’t need to ‘check out’ to be free).

URANUS will on its retro trip and over the Winter go back into ARIES (where it’s been since March 2011 until Apr 2018) to show us how new approaches to a situation and seeing it in a fresh, new light can be so liberating and surprising (btw: life never turns out how we expect it to….).

Bottom line: URANUS in TAU / AR:
Embodied Liberation into the vibrant NOW Presence.


What’s LILITH got to do with it?

You bet LILITH and URANUS are buddies.

LILITH has a 9-year cycle, and hasn’t been in AQ since Oct 2009 – June 2010 (last phase).
‘She’ travels 9 month in one sign – a ‘pregnancy phase’ to cultivate intrinsic qualities of that Zodiac energy, through / in our True, Free, unconditioned Nature.
And by the way, ‘she’ never goes retro.

Quick re-CAP, for the context:

LILITH in ‘traditional Astrology’ represents the wild and free inner Feminine. ‘She’ is a force of Nature, and relies on ‘her’ inner natural knowing.
Under LILITH in CAP over the last 9 months since Nov 2017, we’ve seen countless BS regarding Integrity and ‘mature Leadership’. Our instinctual Nature knows when something doesn’t smell good / sit well, and we need to walk away / find our Freedom.

‘She’ fiercely resists being conditioned, subordinated, disrespected, and ‘used’, in societal, patriarchal ways, in terms of what a woman (and: Nature) is ‘supposed to be’, as defined by patriarchal values.

SATURN now (also) retro in CAP advises us to not give authority away, and source it from within.
We’re responsible for our lives. Done with guilt and ‘shoulds’, taking too much on, feeling resentful… you name it. Heavy, heavy stuff. Lighten the load!
LILITH in CAP has also shown us to be quite ZEN about things, and cultivate simplicity beyond complexity.
The main alignment for LILITH in CAP was the MARS – PLUTO – LILITH alignment in CAP this May – when Mt. Kilauea erupted, and the Earth Mother showed her power.… still in process…


‘Wild Woman’ LILITH is shifting Zodiac energies (only every 9 months), as ‘she’ enters Freedom loving AQ, on Aug 5 / 6). 



LILITH in AQ – Our True Nature is FREE.

Integrity & Simplicity (CAP) leads to Freedom (AQ).

Throughout Aug and Sept until early Oct, LILITH and MARS are travelling super close to each other and to the Lunar South Node, on the ‘Community Builder’ / ‘Prometheus Point’ (CAP / AQ) – see chart below.

LILITH gets a MARtian boost (exact alliances Aug 10 & Oct 2), to process anger and turn it into dynamic action, esp. related to society and humanity. Release draining, imbalanced associations, and engage in groups and with people where there’s Integrity & Freedom.
With the Lunar North Node in LEO, best to start with LOVE, and connect from there.

Socially speaking, this can lead to different, new, Heart ‘upgraded’ friendships, and community / social / cooperative alliances that are based on fairness, reciprocity, equality and… freedom! 
Wouldn’t work otherwise… since intrinsically freedom loving LILITH would be out of it.

Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH represents our True, ‘Wild’ and unconditioned / unconditional Inner Nature that’s always FREE.


Here’s the chart for LILITH’s entry into AQ!

Since I couldn’t find info about the exact time on Aug 6, I experimented, and found 11 pm PDT  worked best.


See the PLUTO / LILITH / MARS / South Node cluster from late CAP to early AQ?
That’s where a lot happens these ‘days’ / months! (LILITH, MARS, South Node) / years! (PLUTO), reflecting the death and transformation of the ‘Old World’, with lots of shadow coming to the surface in the process, and re-purposing of the energy into what’s more evolved.

LILITH moving into AQ also indicates a shift from dysfunctional old systems (AQ South Node – lined up with LILITH on Sept 18) to better communities – as we follow our Heart (LEO) and connect with good people to collaborate and team up with, and build the New and Alternative together.

LILITH on the CAP / AQ cusp will meet up / trade places with MARS twice, on Aug 10 (under MARS retro), plus again post MARS retro, on Oct 2.
LILITH is also very close to the Lunar South Node in AQ (exact alignment on Sept 18).
Basically, the trio of LILITH / MARS / South Node cruises together from Aug to early Oct, plus it squares URANUS in early TAU (exact for LILITH on Aug 28).
Lots of wild and crazy yet also wildly liberating and high frequency energy in the atmosphere / astrosphere.


LILITH in AQ will also go into ‘square dance’ with VENUS in SCO three times, before, during, and after VENUS’s retro journey ‘into the underworld’ this Fall:
On Sept 16 (VENUS direct), Oct 17 (VENUS retro – Oct 5 – Nov 16), and Dec 23 (VENUS direct).

Uhhh, that sounds like a juicy dynamic, shifting what others / society (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ before retro) deems beautiful and attractive to finding our intrinsic value (VENUS ‘Morning Star’) and freedom from deep within.
Imagine the freedom that ensues from fully valuing yourself.


LILITH in YOUR chart…

…shows the area where and how YOU need to be in tune with YOUR nature.
I.o.w., which areas of life trigger that (money, children, relationships, travel, career…) and in what way (sign, and aspects to other planets).

So, give the inner AQ LILITH a good outlet in the next 9 months, and be in the authentic Freedom!
It’s Your Life and the world needs YOU!

On a spiritual level, the LILITH in AQ shows us:
Our True Nature is always unconditionally FREE.

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in AQ…
…and for all of us, where AQ is in our charts, this is the 9-month ‘pregnancy’ phase to cultivate being FREE in our True Self


In an esoteric sense, the CAP / AQ cusp is also the ‘Lightworker and Ascended Masters Point’.
Maybe LILITH  / MARS in AQ shows how angelic / light warriors are active and around us – reminding us: We ARE the Light!

If you have an Aquarian side in you it gets ‘lilified’, and infused with untameable and indomitable Spirit.

Let’s come together, on Day ONE of LILITH in AQ,
in our Special Astro Parlour:

LILITH into AQ (Aug 6, 2018 – May 4, 2019) – 
Your True Nature is FREE.

We’ll invoke and welcome LILITH’s entry into AQ, and discuss how to be best aligned with it, for the upcoming 9 months, customized for your astrological themes.

Relevant esp. for all of you with a strong LILITH in your chart, or SUN, MOON, AC, MC or planets in AQ, or in the other fixed signs TAU, LEO, and SCO. In doubt, I can check for you.

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.

AUGUST is Client Appreciation Month, at the occasion of the 18th anniversary of my Astrology practice!
Come on over, or let’s meet online, for a substantially discounted (11% – 22% – 33%, depending on how long you’ve been my client 😉 ) Astro session. And let your friends know!


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.
Our 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!
