VENUS over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Feb 3 – March 1) – Timeless & Rock-Solid Love!

2 Feb

Dear Astro Friend,

Whether you discovered this Blog just recently, or been tuning in for years… 
I just went back, and saw it started with the Equinox / LIBRA New Moon in Sept 2014 – ruled by VENUS.

This one’s about VENUS…
…who has come a long way recently!
After the VENUS-retro phase last Fall, where ‘she’ once again activated the Inner Goddess, ‘she’ crossed from transformational SCO over the ‘Phoenix Point’, and rose – as the ‘Morning Star’ in SAG on JAN 3, where she helped us attract lots of opportunities from the Heart and from Gratitude, Generosity, Self-Value, and Abundance – All attributes of LOVE.

In uplifting SAG, VENUS met big Mentor JUPITER on JAN 22 – right after the Total LUNAR Eclipse Full MOON in CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ.
What an initiation into celebrating the creative & strong Lunar Mother Goddess and to be BIG with our loving, magnetic Heart!

YES – in the Root-to-Crown / Saturn-to-Sun Chakra Journey, VENUS’s association is with the HEART Chakra.

 

Now, VENUS crosses over the Winter Solstice cusp from SAG to CAP, a.k.a. (well, I call it) the Integrity Point, and becomes / helps us become a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’, lasting, timeless, and in integrity / really works for us. Rock Solid Love.

In the meantime / simultaneously it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game (we attract matches & mirrors) for where we’re at, with our self value, self honouring, and self love.
You might want to notice what you attract into your ‘field’, and what it says about you, how you’re the perfect match for it – from the perspective of the status quo / from what you ‘sent out’.


An ‘inventory’ / assessment time, with VENUS in CAP this month:

  • What works really well, and generates balancing reciprocity (remember, VENUS rules LIBRA) and joy (yes, VENUS also rules TAURUS)?
  • Where is a new negotiation or are boundaries needed, to honour yourself and live in mutual mature respect?
  • Maybe, ‘simply’ walking away from situations that never give you the loving appreciation you’re looking for is ‘walking your talk’ and the wisest thing to do.


I.o.w., don’t work too hard (a CAP thing – CAP can turn into a Martyr).  

SATURN in CAP (for more than a year now) couldn’t agree more:
Don’t do it the hard way, i.o.w., work too hard to to ‘receive / earn Love’ 
(which could as an old conditioning certainly come up this month), rather (the reformed VENUS / SATURN duo): Do it the Heart Way!

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18 (just the day before the Full Moon) we  might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and find closure of an old pattern – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in our charts.

And then, the unfathomably deep VENUS – PLUTO, and the old and karmic VENUS – South Node connections in CAP this month, followed by a surprise / paradigm shifting and liberating VENUS square URANUS at the very end of the Love Story….

Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in CAP (Feb 3 – March 1):

Not as many alignments from VENUS in CAP to other Planets as from when she was in SAG.
Goes with CAP’s tendency to like it simple “all you need”.
I added the aspects TO VENUS from the MOON though, to give a sense of the ‘flavour’ on those days when they engage with each other…:


FEB 5 / 6
The waxing MOON in PI in sextile VENUS in CAP.
Feeling timelessly connected – a Love that never grows old.

 

FEB 8
The waxing MOON in AR square VENUS in CAP.
Impulses for the new and authentic-NOW can clash with traditionalist ‘leave it as it is’ attachments.
Reconcile Innocence with Experience.

 

FEB 11
The waxing MOON in TAU in Earth Trine with VENUS in CAP.
How about a yummy meal with grandma’s recipe?

 

FEB 16
The waxing MOON in CAN opposite VENUS in CAP.
Reconciling the need to keep it cozy, and the love to challenge yourself / get work done? Well, it’s Saturday…

 

FEB 17 – last day of the SUN in AQ, and with the MOON in LEO
VENUS in CAP sextile (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE in PI.
A good day for a charitable fundraiser, a choir concert, a benefit performance…

 

FEB 18 – Day before the Full MOON.
VENUS in CAP meets ringed SATURN.
What are you ready to commit to, from your heart, and because it’s time?
And what’s done and complete (even though you used to love it)?

 

FEB 22
The waning MOON in LI squares VENUS in CAP.
VENUS in CAP meets ‘deep dark’ PLUTO.
You might feel you’re still on the fence, yet something deeper and ‘older’ calls you.

 

FEB 24
VENUS in CAP conj. the Lunar South Node.
Love doesn’t have to be earned (karmic? conditioned? old school?). I.o.w., don’t work hard to be loved, accepted, respected, esp. by those who don’t ‘get you’, and turn to those who warmly welcome you.
In any case: Rather than ‘doing it the hard way’ let’s stay on the Heart Way. So much easier…

 

FEB 25
The waning MOON in SCO sextile VENUS in CAP.
Some processing of deep emotional layers helps with finding your loving ground.

 

MARCH 1
VENUS at the very end of CAP squares URANUS at the very end of ARIES.
VENUS enters (URANUS ruled) AQ the same day, and is met by the MOON there on MARCH 2.
Uhhh, what a conclusion of her CAP visit! Free at last! 
Where does Love set you free?
Paradigm shifts, and loving connections between human equals, beyond time, age, status are calling.

 

 

VENUS in CAPRICORN in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAP and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where CAP is in your birth (and local) chart/s to be a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’ and in integrity / really works for YOU, while ‘in the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror for where you’re at, with your self value and self love.

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18, the day before the Full Moon you might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and / or find closure to an old and too hard way of being – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in your chart.

And after the encounter with the ‘Ringed One’, VENUS meets PLUTO and the South Node in CAP on Feb 22 – 24, connecting with deep, old, soulful Love – that may move mountains, or at least melt walls… while releasing old ways of ‘loving’.

 

VENUS – approaching SATURN / PLUTO / Lunar South Node, now transiting in your… house relating to…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:

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’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.

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

Happy Imbolc / Candlemas / Brigid’s Day – Spring Stirring!

29 Jan

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friends,

Loving it too?
Now, as the daylight hours are getting obviously longer, the middle of Winter is soon reached, as well as the midpoint of AQUARIUS:

We’re celebrating Imbolc / St. Brigid’s Day, Candlemas, and Groundhog Day (Feb 1/2).

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: Beltane, Lammas, Samhain / Halloween, and IMBOLC / Brigid’s Day.

 

 

 

In the Gaelic / Celtic Calendar, Imbolc is one of the 4 fixed ‘Gates of Power’ of the Zodiac year!

In many areas of the Celtic world, this was the Fire Feast of Brigid the Irish Goddess of hearth and home – yes, more Goddess Celebration!
She is the keeper of the flame, the protector of the home, and a goddess of holy wells and springs.
At Imbolc, her many aspects are being acknowledged, especially that of her role as a deity of transformation(!). 
As the world awakes from the dark slumber of Winter, it is time to cast off the chill of the past, and welcome the warmth of Spring.

Found in a beautiful Imbolc / St. Brigid’s post with lots of inspiration for creativity, crafts, recipes, and ceremony, to honour the season:

Some of the symbols attributed to Brigid are:

The Snowdrop. The first gift of Spring in the bleakness of Winter.

The Swan. The swan mates for life, and represents loyalty, fidelity and faithfulness. Swan feathers are a powerful amulet.

The Flame. Imbolc is a Fire Festival and fire of all kinds is associated with Brigid – the fire of creativity, the protective hearth fire, and her fire wheel – the Brigid Cross, which heralds her as a Sun Goddess.

Brigid’s Cross. This is a traditional fire wheel symbol – found at the hearths of homes throughout Ireland and beyond as a symbol of protection. A customer in the shop recounted finding a hearth in Ireland, in recent years, adorned with over 200 Brigid Crosses – 200 years in the life of a hearth and a family, overlit and protected by Brigid.

Brigid Doll. A very old tradition involved the making of a Brigid doll which can be included in ceremony and/or placed in ‘Bride’s Bed’ to bring fertility and good fortune to the home.

The Serpent. In Celtic mythology Brigid was associated with an awakening hibernating serpent which emerged from its lair at Imbolc. Traditionally serpents were associated with creativity and inspiration – the powerful Kundalini energy of the Eastern Mysteries. Paths of earth energy were called serpent paths and at Imbolc they are stirred from their slumber.

Sheep. Brigid’s festival is at the beginning of lambing – eat ewe’s milk cheese!

Imbolc Colours: White and silver for purity, green for the fresh burst of life.”

 

With The MOON, SATURN and PLUTO in CAP, and the MOON square MARS in ARIES on Feb 1 / 2 it’s a wonderful time for Ceremony that honours the New that wants to come forth, for setting up altars and tuning into traditions and the seasons, and for working with the energies that nature provides, to be naturally aligned!

 

Here in Victoria, snow drops, Rhodo blossoms and even of the first cherry blossom variety have been sighted! The ground is greening again .

Brigid’s blessings…!

Here’s a dedication by Ann Mortifee, from her wonderful book In Love with the Mystery:

“SPRING APPEARS

Just when you think the Winter will never cease, suddenly Spring appears.
So it is with sadness, sorrow, loneliness, or loss. Everything has its day and its season.
A new bud will appear where a barren twig lay empty. A fresh start will burst forth with the first green leaf. An unexpected possibility, a new life, will be felt among the ruins. 

Have faith. Expect the impossible. Trust the unfolding nature of life. Wait an eternity if need be.
Spring, inevitable, will surely come.”

 

Much Love, Seasonal and Celestial Blessings!
