MERCURY (Apr 16 – May 6) & VENUS (Apr 20 – May 15) in ARIES: Authentic Communication & Fierce Love

17 Apr

Dear Astro~News Friends!


It’s been a while since I last wrote an article here on the blog (if you’d like to tune in on a daily basis come over to my FB page)… been so immersed (yahhh – that looong MERCURY in PISCES) in seeing clients, and trip planning.

 

How has the MERCURY in PISCES phase (Feb 10 – yesterday Apr 16, incl. retro phase March 5 – 28!) been for you?

Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, vulnerable, exposed to and entangled with (actually also a Quantum Physics concept!) what might have appeared as chaotic yet comes with intelligence of interconnectedness – of everything!
Which is ultimately true, but scary for the separate personal identity…
MERCURY retro in PISCES has called us to let go of our agenda, judgment, doubt, and resistance,  to be open to connections in natural resonance, and to let me Universe talk to us.
Lots of experiences of what appeared to be miracles and synchronicities – showing us about the connectedness beyond time and space, in the web of life appeared in my life.

Yet also acceptance of what presented itself as loss – like through the devastating fire in Notre Dame de Paris, on the very last day of MERCURY in PISCES, where miraculously nobody lost their life, and a lot of treasures have been preserved.
Always good to be aware how paradoxical things are in PISCES.
As in: loss in some way brings gifts in disguise in another way… to be revealed.


How about reviewing the recent MERCURY in PISCES phase?
How’zit been going for you, with the mental motto / mantra
Tuning & Communing. Openness & Fluidity of the Mind?

VENUS has also been in PISCES (which is ‘her’ exalted – most ‘dignified’ place) since March 26.
Love IS. Beyond form, time, and space. A connection with / in the Universe…

 

And now for a refreshing shift and lift!

MERCURY (April 16), followed by VENUS (April 20) both move(d) over the Spring Equinox ‘Emergence Point’ from PISCES to ARIES!

…where CHIRON awaits them, since:
This year (on Feb 19, 2019), CHIRON made
its long term move into ARIES (until 2026).

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.

 

So, let’s see how MERCURY & VENUS fare in the Spring Fire of ARIES, directly connected with CHIRON, and indirectly with other cosmic ‘Players’ in the Zodiac:

 

MERCURY in ARIES (April 16 – May 6) – approaching CHIRON:
Communicating Authentically

MERCURY entered ARIES yesterday, April 16 – for a 3-week journey in the fresh and fast and sign!
MERCURY invites us now to connect mentally with the Emergence of the NEW!

An enlivening, activating, quickening energy, post Piscean direct-retro-direct ‘floating’, dreaming, surfing, and navigating of the cosmic waves and currents of the collective mental sphere – an Odyssey for many of us… MERCURY has been in PISCES since Feb 10.

Phewww, that hasn’t always been ‘easy’, since so much has been washed up, and come to our mental attention – only to show: we are, and it IS all connected, always in-becoming. Not taking things so personally, being fluid, letting go & letting God, navigating on the path of least resistance…
MERCURY is traditionally considered ‘in exile’ in PISCES, opposite its ruled sign VIRGO, the skilled and analytical apprentice / helper, and square its other ruled sign GEMINI, the learner.
PISCES is rather the mystic.
How’s the mind of the mystic? Rather a no-mind.

Hope you could dance through, and BE with it, rather than trying hard to find a way through the waters of overwhelm and confusion.
And that you’ve taken time to release and retreat, let go of your agenda, to connect spiritually, and to be open to receive, see miracles and synchronicities.
Maybe these last 2 months with MERCURY in PISCES helped putting things into spiritual perspective – also to see the gifts in disguise (PISCES is paradoxical and likes to camouflage)…

And NOW for the NEW!

MERCURY entering ARIES is a big shift, and big news.
Why?

ARIES is where everything starts – Spring Equinox energy.
MERCURY as a function of the mind is very well placed in ARIES, since it lends itself to new ideas and inspiration (hopefully after a big release, surrender, and re-connection with what-IS in PISCES).
Here-now, we can get the ball rolling, in communication and new endeavours that might require courage – or rather: a fresh mental approach, and to simply give it a try, and put something forward. Be pro-active, take the first step, start the conversation, make a suggestion.
Kick your mind into gears, let fresh ideas arise!
Out of hibernation, into action, one baby step at a time!
But hey, with ARIES, things can go fast!
Any mental projects sitting on the back burner that you’d like to tackle? 

So, let’s welcome MERCURY in ARIES with all that it brings us, to set ourselves FREE from the ‘known’ and for the NEW!
Which can be raw and vulnerable – as MERCURY / CHIRON in early ARIES show (exact on the day of the Full Moon – April 19!).
Show up for yourself and authentically, directly and freshly, as YOU. That’s where the Medicine is.

And see what happens when you get the ball rolling for something that Spirit calls us to move towards. Things can go much faster now than you thought 🙂

Esp. since there’s also a ‘mutual reception’ (‘double whammy’) going on these days, with MERCURY the ruler of GEMINI in ARIES (ruled by MARS), and MARS the ruler of ARIES in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY)!

Which all reinforces their shared themes…
…and has the effect that things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring!
Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our loving intentions FREE!

The early-to-mid Spring atmosphere has quite a MERCURY / MARS and ARIES / GEMINI fragrance:
New (AR) ideas, contacts, interests, learning, conversations (GEM).
Stirred up / provoked / stimulated / sharp (MARS) thoughts (MERCURY).
Aggressive / assertive / argumentative / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.
Speaking UP does really come up.
What is it you think the World or your circle of influence should know about?

Channel the fierce mental-physical energy of the GEMINI / MERCURY in ARIES Warrior into fresh, bold, animated youthful curiosity, the desire to learn (esp. languages), reading & writing something that you’re passionate about.

And into pro-actively getting in touch (yep, send them a message, phone them up!) with people whom you’d like to talk to, and perhaps cook up some Alchemy together.
And so important – esp, when ‘mind attacks’ get you:

Breathing, breathing, breathing with the Energy!

 

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in ARIES: 

They’re concentrated right at the FULL MOON on Apr 19, and on May 1/2.

APRIL 19
MERCURY in AR meets CHIRON.
Communicating boldly, directly, authentically is healing.

APRIL 30
MERCURY in AR sextile MARS in GEMINI (they’re also in ‘mutual reception’ – see above)
Speak UP, and buzz around at your Heart’s desire.

MAY 1
MERCURY in AR in square with SATURN freshly retro (since Apr 29) in CAP, while the MOON also enters AR and connects with CHIRON.
Step forward and make genuine suggestions. And if not all are well received or even responded to don’t take it personally or too seriously. Just be YOU.

MAY 2
MERCURY in AR in square with the South Node and PLUTO freshly retro (since Apr 24) in CAP, before going into Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG.
Dare to think outside the ‘box’ of the consensus reality and other conditioned power structures.
Do you have controversial news to share? Speak with deep understanding and wisdom, and share the bigger picture – knowing that there’s never just ONE truth. 

MAY 6
MERCURY enters TAURUS where it meets URANUS on MAY 8.
Liberated and unattached Mind.

 

VENUS in ARIES (April 20 – May 15) – also approaching CHIRON:
Fierce Love & New Feminine Emerging

Primavera – by Italian Renaissance painter G. Arcimboldo

With VENUS entering the ARIES scene on April 20, the Heroine emerges, and Newness blossoms – like fresh shoots in Spring.

VENUS in ARIES doesn’t wait to be asked ‘to dance’. She takes initiative, makes the first steps, goes for what she values, is direct and ‘in your face’.
How does VENUS in ARIES attract?
Perhaps through her rawness and courage. What you see is what you get.
No more Piscean passive princess or mystical muse. Nor an Aphrodite who competes to be the fairest and ‘chosen one’ by Paris or any other prince who gives her the ‘golden apple’.

Time for the New Feminine to emerge!

 

Here are the Planet Dates for VENUS in ARIES:

Concentrated round Apr 23, and on May 7-9.

APRIL 23
VENUS in AR meets CHIRON.
New Healing Connections. Taking bold and innocent loving initiative is healing.

MAY 7
VENUS in ARIES square SATURN freshly retro in CAP.
A dynamic conflict between being attracted to the new, and solid reasons and experience (or fear) that can hold us back. Lead on with Love.

MAY 9
VENUS in AR in Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG, and in square with the South Node and PLUTO in CAP.
Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’, let the Inner Sage and the Fierce Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes.

MAY 14
VENUS in ARIES (ruled by MARS) in sextile (a VENUS aspect) with MARS in GEMINI.
Upward-onward, into a new de-lightful Dance & Alchemy.

 

Where in your chart is ARIES?

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!

Your Love is Free! VENUS in AQ (March 1 – 26)

25 Feb

Super cool tiled staircase in San Francisco (photographer unknown)

HI there, dear Astro Friends out there, known and unknown!

So, after (= based on, or beyond) CAPricornian tests, (mutual) commitments, maturity, reliability, and respect comes freedom.
If experience shows there’s a lack thereof in whom / what you attracted, the freedom comes from moving on, and finding environments, communities, and circles where these qualities have a better chance of being present.

And after the allegiance to established structures (societally, interpersonally, and personally) comes also a movement to ‘Freedom from the Known’.
Where are you being drawn to ‘out of the box’ experiences and creations?

VENUS in AQ also brings our our Love for Humanity and its Future.
Which brings people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps Utopian, and innovative.

 

The main theme for AQ is Freedom.
And since the one Archetype VENUS will meet in AQ (on March 22) is LILITH – representing our ‘Wild & Free’ Nature – , you bet a double dose of Freedom is ON for the VENUSian Magnet.

With URANUS, the Ruler of AQ, going on March 6 into a new Zodiac energy, TAURUS, the realm ruled by VENUS, while VENUS is in AQ there’ll be a mutual reception between them (‘double whammy’) reinforcing their shared themes.
Very conducive to come together in circles of like-spirit beyond the ‘boundaries’ of convention and predictability.

 

An exciting time – be open for surprises!
Also given MERCURY in PI will be retro almost the whole time of VENUS in AQ – it’ll go into pre-retro ‘storm’ on MARCH 1 when VENUS enters AQ.

Planet ‘Dates’ of VENUS in AQ (March 1 – 26)

Not so much directly – rather indirectly, via the inner connection with URANUS going into TAURUS.

The VENUS aspects culminate on March 21 / 22.
I added the ‘sharp’ aspects TO VENUS from the MOON, to give a sense of the ‘flavour’ on those days when they engage with each other in dynamic ways..:

 

MARCH 1
VENUS freshly in AQ sextiles CHIRON freshly in AR.
Showing up in authentic ways sets your Love Free and is healing.

 

MARCH 2
The waning MOON in AQ meets VENUS.
Where’s / who’s your Tribe? Maybe not in one group but eclectic.
All good, follow your feelings, and choose in Freedom.

 

MARCH 10
The waxing MOON in TAU squares VENUS in AQ.
Habits and comfort vs attraction to freedom and experimentation.
How can they be reconciled? Yet also, your ‘conservative’ feelings might come from an old and boring place.

 

MARCH 18
The waxing MOON in LEO opposes VENUS in AQ.
A need for being special, seen and loved as YOU vs. being drawn to group energy?
Be creative, show what you got, and be social too.

 

MARCH 21 – Day after Spring Equinox Full Moon!
VENUS in AQ squares MARS in TAU, and sextiles JUPITER in SAG.
Interesting ‘friction’ between the two ‘Lover’ Archetypes… when it comes to ‘ownership’ and territorial desires leading to jealousy Freedom wins and shows where Love lays.
And good to see the ‘bigger story’.

 

MARCH 22
VENUS in AQ meets LILITH

Your (and their) ‘Wild & Free’ Nature attracts.
Follow the ‘Call of the Wild’, be in Nature, because you love it, and your place in the community of Nature.

 

MARCH 24
The waning MOON in SCO squares VENUS in AQ.
Diving in and through, where your feelings take you.
Don’t be afraid of the dark, and of loosing your lightness.

 

MARCH 26 – APR 20
VENUS in PISCES – where ‘She’s’ exalted among all Zodiac signs
Sail in the Waters of Love – All is ONE.

 

VENUS in AQUARIUS in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in AQ and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where AQ is in your birth (and local) chart/s – to be a magnet to attract partners and choices that are a good match because / if they represent free spiritedness and friendship.

In the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game with VENUS, showing you where you’re at, with Your Self Value and Self Love.
As in: What’s with the respect and freedom you give to yourself? 
Your attractions mirror it.

 

VENUS in AQ (meeting LILITH) transiting in your… House relate to…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House:

VENUS comes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG on Jan 7, and will be on ‘her’ SAG Journey until Feb 3.

4 Jan

Dear Astro~News Friend, and Cosmic Co-Explorer,

YES!
VENUS comes out of SCORPIO, and rises in SAG!
A ‘long time coming’ for VENUS the Love Goddess
who, due to ‘her’ Retro ‘Underworld Journey’ in Fall 2018, has been in SCORPIO for extremely long, since the New MOON in VIR on 09 / 09, all through October, and again all through December.

Hope you channeled the energy into Love for Life’s Magic and Mystery, and a full-on regeneration of the Inner Divine Feminine in her Power!

 

 

The ‘PHOENIX VENUS’ is also part of the Partial Solar ECLIPSE in CAP  – Let the Old Empire Expire!

Guess what that adds up to?
Rise of the Feminine, and, post-VENUS-retro, regenerated Inner Values (‘New VENUS’ since Oct 26), rather than (old-old!) comparing ourselves, and being so concerned about what ‘they’ think, and who loves us, bla-bla.

VENUS will be in fiery & inspired SAG until FEB 3, and meet big Mentor JUPITER there on JAN 22 – right after the Total LUNAR Eclipse Full MOON in LEO – AQ.
Lots of Opportunities to attract from the Heart and from Gratitude, Generosity, and Abundance – which are all attributes of LOVE – that’s where it’s at.

 

Here are the Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in SAG (JAN 7 – FEB 3):


JAN 18 (building up for a few days prior)
VENUS in SAG in Fire Trine with MARS in ARIES.
Woohoo! Sparks are flying between the ‘two lovers’ Archetypes. Get ignited and excited!
(And also) channel the energy into creativity and (esp.) adventures which both ARIES & SAG love.

JAN 20 – just 1 hr before the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon!
VENUS in SAG square NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave’) in PISCES.
Travelling on your ‘Dream Boat’? Living & Loving in LaLaLand?
This transit (active over all of JAN) can ignite big hopes and dreams, and allow us to be open to attract through uplifted vibration, to receive and flow with the blessings. Or to over promise,esp. in matters of Love – with illusions / delusions / disappointments as a result.
The CAP energy that’s also present, with MERCURY, SATURN, and PLUTO, helps with being realistic, grounded, and in integrity.

JAN 22
VENUS conj. JUPITER in mid-SAG.
The big highlight of the VENUS-in-SAG journey.
If you ever play the lottery / go to the casino this is the day! Just kidding (maybe not)!
Massive attractions (doesn’t have to be a ‘good thing’) of what you focus on, and where you come from. Big indulgence / going for riches?
Or igniting the Heart Fire and being super generous with your L.O.V.E!
The Goddess is with You and in You!

FEB 2 / 3
VENUS in late SAG (Galactic Centre) trine URANUS in late ARIES, and square CHIRON in late PI.
The ‘Grand Finale’ of VENUS in SAG this year (until NOV 1 that-is).
What is LOVE that has no opposite? Just as: What is Freedom that has no opposite?
Healing and liberating to let go of agenda about where it’s ‘supposed to go’, and being in the Journey and Vibration of LOVE regardless of an ‘outcome’.

FEB 3
VENUS enters CAP (until MARCH 1) – where she’ll meet SATURN on FEB 18, and PLUTO on FEB 22.
Rock-solid and soulful LOVE that’s real.

 

VENUS in SAG in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in SAG and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where SAG is in your birth (and local) chart/s to be magnetic and attract – esp if you have clear focus and intent.

 

1st House:

2nd House:

How Deep is your Love? The ‘RE-newed VENUS’ moves through SCO (now for real – Dec 2 – Jan 7)

2 Dec

Picture: Birth of Venus (detail). Painting by S. Botticelli

It’s also all about VENUS!
She’s naturally at home in fair LIBRA – where she’s been again recently.
With and after her retro journey back from SCO to LI (Oct 5 – Nov 16), she’s come a long way…

A transformation and re-emergence of the Inner Feminine and Goddess energy has occurred.
With VENUS in SCO and the retro phase we’ve faced old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around the Feminine resulting in imbalanced and abusive relationship patterns that need to be processed, so that we come as women and men to a new place of empowerment from within – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

The ‘New VENUS’ re-entered her LIBRAn domain on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with the recent VENUS retro in LIBRA, it’s been important to ‘marry ourselves’ first!

Now with the New VENUS we’re tapping more easily (you too?) into the ‘Morning Star’ quality, meaning: We’re coming from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first, before choosing to engage with others.

 

Just before VENUS entered SCO, today Dec 2, she opposed on Nov 30 from end of LIBRA once more URANUS which is now retro at the end of ARIES. For the 3rd time, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) on Oct 31, in retro. 
Wow, this triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) has stirred up a lot between the Love Goddess and the notion for Autonomy / la Libertee.

When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (New VENUS post retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.
‘Tipping’ into freedom (URANUS) AND, intimacy and depth (SCO).

 

What’s with

VENUS’s dates with other Planetary Archetypes while she’s in SCO (Dec 2 – Jan 7)?

Early this week is quite scorpionic, since the Dark MOON in SCO (before the SAG NEW MOON on DEC 6 / 7) unites with VENUS in early SCO tomorrow Mon Dec 3, and with MERCURY in late SCO on Wed Dec 5:

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy, it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

 

After the early Dec ALCHEMY with MOON – VENUS – MERCURY in SCO, there will be just 5 VENUS connections with slower moving Planets – calm and powerful ones, except for some thrill between VENUS and LILITH on the day of the Full Moon:

Dec 16
VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in CAP.
Love can be so simple.

Dec 21
VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI.
Surfing the Waves of Love.

Dec 22 – Day of the CAN – CAP Full Moon
VENUS in SCO square LILITH in AQ.
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

Dec 28
VENUS in SCO sextile PLUTO in SCO.
The Depth and Power of Love.

Jan 5
VENUS in SCO trine CHIRON in PI.
Love Heals.

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.

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

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers in December, to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!

Balance is Beautiful. VENUS ‘Evening Star’ enters LIBRA on Aug 6 (until Sept 9, plus: Oct 31 – Dec 2, due to VENUS retro, Oct 5 – Nov 16)

5 Aug

The Birth of Venus by Botticelli

VENUS Love Goddess makes a move from VIRGO into her ‘domain’ of LIBRA – ahhh!

VENUS in VIRGO (since July 9) has attracted lots of themes (if not problems) to ‘work on’ and bring into alignment and healing – to be in wholeness.
Which also means: self sufficiency, and not ‘needing’ a partner. 

From this place, attraction is based on complementariness, rather than co-dependency. 
With or without ‘significant other’ relationship, VENUS in LIBRA invites us to bring harmony, balance, and beauty into our lives.

 

Freshly in LIBRA, VENUS will have ‘dates’ with 4 cuspy / early-sign retro Archetypes all within 3 days, Aug 7 – 9:
MARS retro in AQ, CHIRON retro in AR, URANUS retro in TAU (ruled by VENUS), and SATURN retro in CAP.

AUG 7
VENUS in LIBRA trine MARS retro in AQ.
Stepping away from social conditioning that creates unnecessary conflict attracts better matches.

AUG 8 – 8-8 / SIRIUS Rising.
VENUS in LI opp. CHIRON in AR.
Yes, you can be in peace and harmony AND authentic.

AUG 9
VENUS in LIBRA quincunx URANUS retro in TAU, and square SATURN retro in CAP.
‘Nice’ and charming isn’t always the answer. Free yourself from bullying, stand by your values, and in your integrity, but don’t be too rigid and judgmental either. Keep it simple.


Love, Peace, Harmony, and right Relationship can help balance lots of old, long-standing issues…
Yet don’t get too much drawn into their / old agenda – otherwise VENUS retro has to sort it out again this Fall…

 

Yes, VENUS will be for a long time in LIBRA and SCORPIO this Fall and early Winter since she’ll go retro from Oct 5 to Nov 16 (from mid-SCO back to late LI, the ‘Alchemy Point’).
VENUS is now ‘Evening Star’ (setting after the SUN), which also has a LIBRA ‘undertone’, showing us, we can make our life and self-worth a lot about other people (comparing ourselves, etc…). 
The VENUS retro phase (every 1 1/2 years) will help us come back to our own self-value. Which often starts with: re-evaluating relationships…
Inner Goddess re-emerging.

If this intrigues you stay tuned for a Special VENUS Retro Parlour early Oct. 

Of course, I’d be honoured to visit your VENUS retro themes with you already before, in private session.

 

Blessings for the VENUSian Infusion!

VENUS in VIRGO (July 9 – Aug 6) – Self Alignment is Beautiful.

4 Jul

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

VENUS will cross over the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self (LEO) Awareness (VIRGO) on JULY 9.
Self Awareness, loving and knowing ourselves, and being in alignment with the Cosmic Self (as the image beautifully shows) is the prerequisite of helping others finding their light – true service.

If your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets / Nodes are in VIRGO they’re a magnet under VENUS in VIRGO and can attract more easily than otherwise – incl. attracting service and practice – which VIRGO loves.

 

Under VENUS in VIRGO, our loving qualities can be well channeled into the work we’re here to do. 
Yet good to remember for self critical VIRGO to not wait until we’re perfect, and not sabotage the work that’s needed by considering it as ‘not good enough’.

What helps if these understandable and likely conditioned voices come up is to bring ourselves back into alignment, perhaps through a health / wellness / spiritual practice, like meditation, Yoga, Qi Gong, walking in Nature. Anything that can turn into a healthy routine, bringing us back into ourselves.
Self sufficient VIRGO loves that.

Speaking of self sufficient, VENUS in VIRGO can bring out the d.i.y. self sufficiency a tad too much, so that we’re not so open to receive. Good to remember, and to open up and let the Love IN – as NEPTUNE in PI would offer. VENUS will go into opposition / relationship with NEPTUNE on July 24 – to make sure balance is in place, in a healthy way 😉

 

The beautiful VENUS Evening Star heralds VENUS Retro (coming up Oct 5 to Nov 16) – an important ‘underworld journey’ for relationship oriented VENUS to find her own self value.
VENUS in VIRGO can already help us with Self Alignment (“How do I work, what works for me and is healthy….?!”).

 

Here’s the line-up of ‘dates & dances’ for VENUS in VIRGO with other Planets – in order (yep, gotta be orderly, says VIRGO) of appearance:

 

JULY 9
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

JULY 11 – 13
VENUS trine URANUS in TAU, quincunx CHIRON retro in AR, and trine SATURN retro in CAP.
This beautiful Grand Earth Trine of VENUS – URANUS – SATURN brings stability to what could have shown up before as unsettling and new when URANUS entered (VENUS ruled) TAURUS. Good to be in loving Self Alignment and commitment to integrity, while setting ourselves free from sticky attachments and ‘ownership’.

 

JULY 15
The crescent MOON in VIRGO joins VENUS in the Evening Sky.
Beauty to Behold (yet never own).

 

JULY 16
VENUS quincunx MARS retro in AQ.
Sacred Feminine and alignment help with stepping out of old ‘systemic’ conflict, and with loving awareness of what’s underneath it.

 

JULY 22
VENUS sextile JUPITER in SCO.
No taboos, just awareness – allows for intimacy and change for the better.

 

JULY 24
VENUS opp. NEPTUNE retro in PI.
Let the Love in – in a healthy way.

 

JULY 27 / 28
VENUS trine PLUTO retro / LILITH in CAP.
Naturally empowered and core connected – grounding in Love.

 

AUG 6
VENUS goes into LIBRA (until Sept 9 + Oct 31 – Dec 2! So long this year in LIBRA since she’ll go retro in SCO – LI!)
VENUS ‘Evening Star’ and also in LIBRA shows us about our relational ‘bias’ (comparing ourselves / designing ourselves for others / making our life and our choices overly about others).
VENUS Retro in SCO – LI (Oct 5 – Nov 16) helps us unravel it, and reconnect with our intrinsic value and self-love.

Post about VENUS Retro to come closer to the date – but first, save the date for VENUS & the MOON, on Friday the 13th – stay tuned for the post!

VENUS enters LEO (June 13 – July 9): Love Yourself & Show Your Love!

11 Jun

Boom – here comes the not-to-be-missed Summer Glory of VENUS in LEO!

Quite the week – no boredom:

MERCURY enters CANCER on June 12 (until June 28), and immediately connects with its ‘higher octave’ URANUS, and also with CHIRON on June 13.
The GEMINI New Moon / SuperMoon (closer to Earth than ‘normal’) on June 13.

And:
Lady VENUS enters the LEO domain on June 13 – meowy roarrr!
Celebrate, Let your Hair down and Show your Mane, and most of all: 

Live Life Lovingly!

 

What’d got to show?
Your LEOnine side will be quite the radiant magnet these weeks!

Don’t be shy, SHINE!

Show Time, Glow & Glamour Time… and foremost: Show your LOVE!

Lioness

Rather than… being too self enamored, narcissistic, a high maintenance / spoiled brat (the shadow sides of LEO that everyone else BUT the LEO sees, hilarious actually…).

VENUS will be in LEO until July 9, adding to the Summer Radiance.

What’s ‘she’ up to, during her ‘cat walk’?
Whom / which other Archetypes does ‘she’ go into contact with, sizzlingly so, while in LEO?

 

June 13 – The Day of the GEM New Moon!
VENUS enters LEO (until July 9):
Warm Summer Radiance from the Heart Attracts!

 

June 14 / 15
VENUS square URANUS in TAU, and trine CHIRON in AR:
A New Love?
A new way of being authentically present (CHIRON in ARIES), self-loving / life-loving (VENUS in LEO), naturally brilliant and magnetic. No room for old sticky attachments.
Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

 

June 16
The Crescent MOON in LEO meets VENUS ‘Evening Star’:
Sweet and sparkling Celebration of Life & Love.

 

June 19 – 21
VENUS quincunx SATURN retro in CAP.
VENUS conj. the North Node in LEO, and opposite MARS (which is about to go retro on June 26) in AQ:
Can you be done with working so hard to be acknowledged and loved, and start with a healthy dose of Self Love? It’s your life. Live the Love!
With VENUS activating the North Node in LEO let’s be more in a healthy LEO mode of LIVING LIFE LOVINGLY, and showing ourselves Heart-fully and creatively (vs. being ‘one of many’, just ‘watching the show and drama’ of others, in depleting, even self-harming, ‘detached’ AQ mode). 

The radiant, creative, loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess attracts!

 

June 25
VENUS square JUPITER retro in SCO:
Show your Love and Passion. Be intimately involved with Life!

 

June 27 – The Day after MARS goes retro
VENUS quincunx with (‘her’ higher octave) NEPTUNE stationary / retro in PI:
A Love Affair with the Universe. Don’t take things too purrrsonally. Love is letting go (incl. of ‘old’ conflict’, and letting BE. Tune into the Divine Feminine & Universal Love.

 

July 1
VENUS quincunx PLUTO retro / LILITH in CAP:
Dedicate your Love to the Well-Being of All. Find the ‘wild’, natural Soul Love that never gets old, and isn’t even time-bound.

 

July 9
VENUS crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR (there until Aug 6):
From the Queen to the Priestess. Bringing our Love into Service and Alignment.

 

VENUS will go retro (every 1 1/2 years) this Fall, from Oct 5 – Nov 16, in SCO / late LIBRA.
A time to re-connect with the ‘Inner Lover’ and re-connect with our intrinsic value, and more…
Blog post about it to come….

 

For now, it’s time for a Heart-fully passionate and creative month!
En-JOY!
