NEW MOON in SCORPIO (Oct 27 /28) opposite URANUS – Awakening Light in the Darkness…

25 Oct

Blessings for the NEW MOON in SCORPIO on Oct 27 / 28!

Happy Diwali – Hindu Festival of Light that also comes with this New Moon!
Celebrating the victory of light-over-darkness.

 

Lakshmi Ma, one of the deities that are invoked and honoured at Diwali.

 

Happy Halloween on Oct 31!

09-10 Fernwood PY 5

Check out these amazing pieces of impermanent Pumpkin Art, as seen years ago at the former Fernwood Pumpkin Yard (photo by M). It was one of the last years of the Pumpkin Yard and its artistic carving house community. Spirit prevails, even though forms – just as pumpkins disintegrate…

May the Scorpionic Alchemy do its work as we’re now in the Season of Dark, ruled by PLUTO!

May we allow the winds of change take down the ‘leaves’ and old be-liefs that are ready for transformation now!

And may we appreciate the gifts of every season in the Great Cycle!

 

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.

Happy Samhain…in the mid SCORPIO ‘Gate of Power’!

We’re approaching in the Zodiac cycle the Heart of the Scorpion – the center of the Fall Season and Celtic festival of Samhain.

Which was traditionally celebrated on Oct 31 when the harvest time ended. On Nov 1 began a new Celtic calendar year. With large fires, the Celtic people thanked the SUN God for the good harvest, and expelled the evil spirits who wandered around that night. On Oct 31 also those who had died in the past year were commemorated. Many believed that the dead returned to their old homes in the night to find warmth and friendship.

The lit pumpkins at the door steps or in the windows symbolize skulls with the eternal light of the Soul in it. The spirits who had not walked home into the light, wandering at night, scared people, and played tricks on them. Nov 1 was eventually declared by the Church the Day of All Saints (holy ones), and Nov 2 All Souls Day.

‘All Hallows Evening’ or simply ‘Hallows E’en’ became later Halloween.

While mid Scorpio and central Fall are traditionally being celebrated with Halloween / Samhain on Oct 31, the exact centre (15°) of Scorpio is not on Oct 31 but round Nov 7.

Blessings for All Saints Day & All Souls Day on Nov 1/ 2!

Feliz Dias de los Muertos Oct 31 – Nov 2!

In Catholic Bavaria where I come from and where my biological family lives, on All Saints Day (Nov 1), similarly to Dia de los Muertos in Mexico yet more solemnly, families visit the graves of their ancestors, after a mass. A time of bringing fresh flowers, love, prayers and candles to the resting place of their bones, and to honour the undying Soul. Maybe a time to let go, to forgive, and know, Love is all that matters.

As quoted above, Halloween pumpkins with candles inside originally represented skulls with the eternal light of the undying soul ‘inside’. Through & beyond dying and transforming appearances the Light prevails. The carved face or feature is the ‘façade’ and appearance, and the candle light is Spirit ‘behind’ and ‘inside’ it. Perhaps a different way of looking at ‘carved pumpkins’ or of carving one….

And a different way of looking at ANY appearances…  

 

All these Festivals come with / in the new cycle of 

The NEW MOON in SCORPIO on Oct 27 / 28!

It’ll be exact at 8:39 pm PDT on Oct 27 / at 1:39 am GDT / UT on Oct 28.
And it’s ruled by / connected with PLUTO.

The wild, challenging and intense energy (compliments LILITH / NEPTUNE in PISCES, stationary SATURN & stationary PLUTO in CAP, all in the 2nd half of September / early Oct) has been settling down, after the crest of the cosmic wave that came with the last Full Moon, in ARIES – LIBRA on Oct 13.

Libran choices have been made, and now we’re in the Scorpionic change that follows (b.t.w., no choice is also a choice).
And when things didn’t / don’t go ‘according to plan’
(a la SATURN in CAP) hope we can surrender to the ‘Higher Power plan’ and cosmic order-in-transformation (PLUTO in CAP) that challenges us – and brings out our best, for the highest good (which might be hidden otherwise as mere ‘potential’).

 

The now disintegrating (or shall I say: integrating and processing in our consciousness) T-Square from the Full Moon axis in ARIES – LIBRA to SATURN in CAP has taught us to make responsible choices, to show up and bring our authentic Nature into any partnership. What reaches us deeply, in our core and Soul that knows about the changefulness of surface appearances? That’s what we have ‘renewable energy’ for, and don’t give up or burn out.

This SCORPIO New Moon plants seeds in deep darkness, and together with its ruler PLUTO who recently turned from retro to direct (on Oct 3), activates the Power to Change, from the (under)ground UP.

PLUTO in CAP (2009 – 2023) is a highly important evolutionary phase in humanity. Power to grow up, to disengage from outlived and destructive hierarchical, oppressive, exploiting and abusive structures (many expressions in society, they all come down to the same core shadows!), and Power to BE the Change.


2020 will be the ‘peak point year’ of PLUTO in CAP, as SATURN meets PLUTO on Jan 12 (with SOOO much CAP energy then, and NO Planets retro), and JUPITER will meet PLUTO on 04/04, 2020, still with NO retro Planets). Expect changes to manifest.
I’ll post the article for SATURN – PLUTO soon here on my WP blog, and of course there’ll be a Special Outlook 2020 article in December. 

 

The U.S. are hugely affected by the shadow and the transformation – obviously! The country will have its (first since 1776 – a 248-year cycle) PLUTO Return in 2021 – 2023.

The U.S. PLUTO is at 27° 34′ CAP, opposed by its MERCURY in CANCER, not far from its JUPITER, the SUN, and VENUS also in CANCER – where the Lunar North Node is now and in the coming months (until June 2020).
Showing us, families and children, a safe place of belonging called Home and compassionate care of human needs matters, and stand in stark contrast to privileges of the elite / ruling (and behind the scenes) class on the ‘top of the food chain / societal / economic pyramid’ (South Node in CAP). SATURN in CAP, with the South Node this year shows us the evidence of where energy is misdirected.

How can positions and resources (CAP) be repurposed, and best used for the highest purpose and common well-being? Time (also a CAP theme) seems to run out (SATURN in CAP), or rather: is of the essence (PLUTO in CAP).

 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for, or looking up to.

And: The Old Empire IS Expiring.
A super theme of the year, preempted by the Partial Solar Eclipse in CAP / first New Moon of the year, on Jan 5/6, 2019.
So, yes, PLUTO in CAP has an inner connection with the SCO New Moon.

And MARS in LIBRA will square PLUTO in CAP on Nov 5 – after squaring SATURN right with the New Moon in SCO, on Oct 27.
We need to act on important, timely, karmic, and soulful choices. With fairness, equity, justice, balance, peace, and right relationship (LIBRA) being core issues to be asserted.

 

For a ‘bigger picture’ let’s take a look at the

SCORPIO New Moon ‘birth chart’.

So, there ‘She’ IS:

The SCORPIO New Moon and ‘her’ entourage (MARS in LIBRA, and VENUS / MERCURY in SCO), incl. the T-square to MARS in LIBRA – an acute choice point.

What stands out most – and I bet you feel it already – is the opposition of the New Moon in SCO with URANUS retro in TAURUS!

A New Moon that’s like a Full Moon… a strong polarity axis that likely shows up in relationships  and calls to be bridged.

Wake UP, Earthlings! Says URANUS in TAURUS (2019 – 2025 / 26).
Early TAU where URANUS is now has a CAP undertone – a natural link to SATURN in mid-CAP (with TAU undertone) and PLUTO in late CAP.

Transforming the Old and Building the New and Sustaining.

A New Earth. A New Embodiment.

A New Relationship to Nature.

 

 

My vision is for the destructive socio-economic structures to change from within because the status quo (TAU) isn’t sustainable.
WE the People have become fed up (URANUS in TAU) enough and FREE to not buy into their values anymore – more excited to outgrow them, and to build the New.

 

Personally, the New Moon in SCO opp. URANUS retro in TAU helps us go deeply & intimately within, for soulful scorpionic ‘composting’ and transformation of what’s been sitting ‘in the dark’ (repressed, covered, ashamed, and otherwise hidden subconscious issues), and for embodied liberation – free it UP, let it OUT!
Esp. related to themes of the astrological House where early SCO is in our charts – with the ‘laser light’ of liberating URANUS, and find unconditional inner Freedom, to build the NEW.

 

What Houses do the early SCO New Moon and URANUS in early TAU activate for you?

Early SCORPIO in your….
 
 
1st House
How you show up –
Maybe ‘under cover’ – more than what meets the eye.
The World senses the charge you emit. Don’t hide, be a catalyst.

Your home –
A regenerative haven…
If you and your family have gone through so much this is the time to sensitively bring it to light of consciousness and process what happened and who you’ve become through it.
URANUS in early TAU in your 10th House:
Be Free as a grown-up and model it to the world.
 
 
5th House

Leading / modeling transformation.
Does the World know / sense that? Maybe time for a renewed public-yet-private presence.
URANUS in early TAU in your 4th House:
Wake-up calls ‘at home’ being a catalyst to live NOW?
 
 
11th House
Your community and friends –
A magical tribe – who probably went through a lot too.
How renewable are your Friendships and why (not)? How intimately do you share your True Selves?
URANUS in early TAU in your 5th House:
How free is your Inner Child?
 
 
12th House
Your Oneness with All –
In the Magic & Power of Life that’s always greater than personal / interpersonal power themes, dive into what-IS.
URANUS in early TAU in your 6th House:
What’s your Freedom practice?

I’m here to support you in your process of consciousness.

Astrology based customized counsel leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you feel more connected with the bigger evolution. I encourage my clients to be aware of, yet go beyond attachment to the cosmic Archetypes, and dwell in a witnessing place ‘in the hub of the wheel’ where you are less and less affected, and more and more liberated.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ (“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 decision making processes.

 

And hey, felt called today to do a card spread over / for the SCORPIO New Moon.

See what showed up – all so apt:

 

 

Initially showed up / jumped out(!) the FOX (from Susan Boulet’s Animal Spirits deck). A cunning animal Magician, also very apropos for MERCURY soon retro in SCO, and VENUS in SCO (“mediator between human and spirit realms…”, and: ” on its 100th birthday it becomes a wizard or a lovely maiden.”).

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Woman of Wands – Sensor

Right after the FOX came from the Voyager Tarot the Woman of Wands – Sensor.

Voila, here she is again (photo to the right).

Wands are related to the Fire Element – Spirit.

This Spirit Woman is also quite scorpionic and Phoenix like (see the Fire Dancer above the Cat’s head?).

‘She’ (as in: the SCORPIO MOON and VENUS) senses instinctively and intuitively what’s imperceptible for others, and can point the finger to the core issue.

So, yes, let’s activate the Inner Sensor (and not let her get suppressed by the ‘censor’). Hands and Fingers are also ‘Wands’ through which we perceive and sense the World.

URANUS in TAU brings an awakening to our Senses, and calls us to Wake UP and come to our senses and (un?)common sense.

 

 

And finally – I felt called to bring a Transformation Card (by Diana Varisco) in as well – we’re dealing with SCORPIO and PLUTO after all… What wanted to be seen is: Anchorage.

So beautifully fluidly depicted (see photo of the card activated New Moon chart) and described. Love how it goes with SATURN / PLUTO in CAP!
Above are the backs of FOX and Anchorage cards.

The NEW MOON in SCORPIO – ruled by PLUTO – , plants Soul Seeds into the concentrated, richly transformational soil of our deepest, often hidden (even from ourselves) and covered dark realms that are waiting to lodge themselves in, for renewal and rebirth.

 

Every NEW MOON is a conception point. Yin / MOON and Yang / the SUN unite. To align with the cosmic conception, in a balancing way, I’d suggest

  • In an active Yang way, set a new intention, and take initiative, in the area of life related to early SCO in your chart.
  • In a receptive Yin way, be open for new ‘conceptions’ in that realm!

 

MERCURY in late SCO, going retro on Oct 31 (until Nov 20) – and now in pre-retro ‘storm’: Get ready for synchronicities and synch’ with the Flow & Magic of Life. What’s the Alchemy (maybe a writing or otherwise creative project) you’re cooking up, or that’s bubbling under the surface?

 

And I hope you like moi are looking forward to hearing from VENUS crossing over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCORPIO where we’ve unearthed deep love (beyond ‘nice’ and ‘pleasant’) in ‘her’ underworld journey since Oct 8, into SAG on Nov 1.

 

To be revealed in the next blog art-tickle…
now (Oct 26) posted.

 

Cosmic Blessings for the SCORPIO New Moon – and beyond!

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.

Light of Conscious Transformation of the Status-Quo – ‘Tipping’ into a Potent SCORPIO Season!

22 Oct

Dear Astro~News Reader,

At the very end of LIBRA where the scales tip, did you make some perhaps difficult choices that had you dig into your core issues and track your core values?
I did, friends whom I spoke to did, and Canada had federal elections today – with some surprising ‘Tipping Point’ results.

Choices lead to Change, says LIBRA-to-SCORPIO.

 

SCORPIO Season is on Oct 23 – Nov 22.

As the SUN goes over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO – exact on Oct 23 at 10:20 am PDT – the nights are getting significantly longer, daylight savings time ends on Nov 3, the rain season is kicking in here on the We(s)t Coast, and fog in other places.
Being in tune with Nature, we’re called to consciously dive into Magic & Mystery.

Time to bring the Light of Consciousness into Darkness – where Transformation happens, and where the Soul Power to Change is.

 

 

This year, the SCORPIO Season is quite charged.

 

  • MERCURY’s been in SCO already since Oct 3 – and until Dec 9! MERCURY is now gearing up / or rather gear-shifting down to its retro phase from (yes!) Oct 31 on until Nov 20: ‘Mental Inside Passage’ & Trickster Magic a-foot! Another M-r opportunity to question the standard / conditioned mind-sets and allow for paradigm shifts around the role of the mind.

 

 

  • The SCO New MOON on Oct 28 / 28 opposes URANUS retro in TAURUS:
    Radical shifts, wake-up calls and liberating ways of getting unstuck. Great for changing habits, getting out of the comfort zone and ‘ownership’ attachments, esp. in relational fields. Good for cleanses and clutter clearing
    (like the beam of a flash light into what’s gathered dust and cob webs). On all levels incl. societally (perhaps surprising, and liberating) shifts of the all-too comfortable & stagnant status quo.

  • Next UP: The TAU – SCO FULL MOON on Nov 12.
    In the direction of the MOON (exalted / super strong in TAURUS) will be URANUS on the (un)Settling Point, while the SUN will be ahead of MERCURY – just after the Day of Enlightening Insight, on 11/11.
    The full Moonlight on our Earth Mother wakes us up to our Love for All our Relations and all life forms on this cherished Planet.
    A stark reminder not to let the perhaps sabotaging and typically polarizing mind but the unifying Consciousness & the Heart lead us into and through the Change of our inner and Human Climate.
    Quite the super charged FULL MOON showing what comes to fruition that’ll be seeded with the SCO NEW MOON, or in bigger cycles.

 

  • On Nov 18, MARS joins the SCO ‘Players‘ (SUN and MERCURY), activating Intense Stirring, Clearing, and Spiritual Mobilization. Nothing is half-hazard with MARS in SCO.

 

Stay tuned for the SCO New Full Moon Astro~News – on this channel and via email to subscribers (contact me at licht@islandnet.com to subscribe, or do it yourself on my FB AstroPage).

 

 

WOW, really a lot going on from Oct 23 – Nov 1!
It’s also the Halloween / All Saints / All Souls / Dia de los Muertos week where we the veils are thinner and we can connect more easily with the Spirit of the Ancestors in all dimensions.

VENUS crosses the Alchemy Point into SCORPIO on Oct 8: How deep is your Love?

8 Oct

Blooming in the Dark – Photo by Melanie

 

Dear Astro~News Friend,

How’s it been going with the Dance of Balance and the Dance with Attractions, in the last weeks with VENUS in LIBRA?

Time to make choices and go for where there’s a magical match?

Coming from fair LIBRA, VENUS crossed this morning the ‘Alchemy Point’ / ‘Tipping Point’ and started ‘her’ underworld journey in SCORPIO (Oct 8 – Nov 1).

Attuning us to way deeper layers of Love – beyond ‘pleasant’ and ‘attractive’, and re-connecting us with Soul Partners.
SCORPIO is ruled by PLUTO after all, and PLUTO now in CAP, just having turned around from retro to direct last week says: About Time!

Stay tuned to what this phase brings – go beyond surface appearances, and don’t be ‘afraid of the dark’ and mysterious!

Peacock-a-boo. Photo by Melanie

With VENUS in SCO we’re attracted to the mystery, to peek behind the scenes, and to go deeper and more intimately in relationships with significant ‘others’.
I heard once a VENUS in SCO quote: “Intimacy = into me I see – through you!”

We might also attract lots of things that call for emotional processing.
As we’re drawn to  look under the surface, we discover hidden beauty in the dark and changeful. 
Dive in, and move through, with Love!

Don’t get too absorbed though in alluring low vibrational Scorpionic things like crimes and scandals in the media, vampire movies or real life psychic vampire situations, personal power games, and addictions that suck your life blood.

Let’s channel the energy into deep immersion in the Mystery of Life that evokes our Love as a change agent.
On that note, just saw this ‘Nature Speaks’ clip with the voice of Julia Roberts (who strikes me as very Libran / Scorpionic) – watch and you know what I mean!

 

VENUS’s ‘Dates’ with other Planets while she’s in SCORPIO (Oct 8 – Nov 1)

 

OCT 10
VENUS in early SCO in quincunx with CHIRON retro in early ARIES
Diving into the Magic of Love can be a grand adventure – be the brave Hero/ine and heal from within!

 

OCT 12
VENUS in early SCO opposite URANUS retro in early TAU (ruled by VENUS)
Intimacy vs / and(!) Freedom in Relationships.
Freedom from the ‘Known’, from old habitual patterns that we’re attached to
(either via comfort or because of unprocessed pain) and continue to attract from until we set ourselves free – or Divine / Inner Soul Intervention (a Uranian thing) does.

 

OCT 20
VENUS in mid SCO sextile SATURN & the South Node in mid CAP, and trine the North Node in mid CAN.
Commitment to deep trust and intimacy in integrity – if it feels (still) like the right commitment.
What ‘obstacles’ have you overcome? Where are you trying to do things ‘the hard way’ though? What’s the most caring and compassionate way of being with ‘karmic partners’?
Rather than choosing ‘splendid isolation’ to avoid hurt and pretending you’re cool and self sufficient, invite yourself or let life invite you into creativity and play.
Loving your Inner Child tells you about your true needs. Be enchanted by the Magic!

 

OCT 21
VENUS in mid SCO in Water Trine with NEPTUNE & LILITH in PI.
Surf the wild waves of the Big Mystery! 

 

OCT 25
VENUS in late SCO in sextile (a VENUSian aspect) with PLUTO (the Ruler of SCO) in CAP.
Tune into deep Love that knows no Time.

 

OCT 29
The New MOON (will be exact Oct 27) in SCO meets VENUS at the end of SCO.
Love and care for what’s / who’s in the dark.

 

OCT 30
MERCURY at the end of SCO – before going retro on Oct 31! – meets VENUS.
Intimate conversations (to be continued….). What is Love?

 

NOV 1
VENUS crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG (Nov 1 – 25)
Love a-Rising.

 

Where is VENUS’s Deep Dive into SCORPIO happening in Your Chart & Life?

The House in your Chart that contains SCORPIO is the ‘Scene of Affairs’.
(Always, but esp. nowadays) a good time to tune into Magic and Mystery (without getting ‘lost in the dark’) and process what’s under the surface.

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SCORPIO? Then there’s more to VENUS’s visit in SCO, since ‘she’ also activates your Scorpionic Archetypes.


Could be a good time to take me up on my Special Offer for Deep Dive ASTRO Alchemy Sessions.

ASTROLOGY Supports INNER ALCHEMY

Always – and there’s a Deeper Reason THIS Season:

I felt called to OFFER
Deep Dive ASTRO ALCHEMY Sessions with Venusian focus.

Guided by your Cosmic Map aka Astro Birth Chart, in alchemical conjunction with Voyager Tarot, Goddess & Animal Spirit cards as well as Transformation cards (they synergize so well!), we focus (always customized to YOUR unique situation) on THEMES like:


On the ‘problematic’ side of VENUS in SCO:

* Why do you attract people and situations that take you into an ‘underworldly’ / deep emotional process?
* What happens when you get stuck and attached to what you don’t even ‘want’, and what would help to come through?

AND / OR – on the powerful side of VENUS in SCO:
* What’s the Relationship Alchemy that presents itself to you now?
* Where is deep Transformation now possible in your Life?
* What does it take to go into it?
* What helps you in the process?
* Where could this go?

We focus on YOUR SCORPIO themes that are being enhanced now, with MERCURY already and for a looong time in SCO (Oct 3 – Dec 9!), now also VENUS (Oct 8 – Nov 1), soon the SUN (Oct 23 – Nov 22), and even MARS (Nov 18 – Jan 3) 
To clear and transform them for the better, and re-connect you with your intrinsic power (SCO and PLUTO which just turned direct on Oct 3) – which helps you with being a beneficial force in the world and in empowered and empowering Relationships.

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.

 

 

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.

 

Sending You Loving Blessings for the VENUSian Infusion in SCORPIO!

SAG New Moon with Jupiter (Dec 6 / 7) square Mars / Neptune: Surfing & Surrendering, and Trusting the Heart Journey…

1 Dec

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friend,

How’s it going and rolling thus far, in the SAG season (since Nov 22), and with JUPITER now (since Nov 8, and for 12 more months) in SAG?

Lots of us are still in SCO-to-SAG PHOENIX transition mode, burning off a lot of intensity that’s been bubbling up and become too obvious to ignore, with JUPITER in SCO (Oct 2017 – Nov 2018), in the recent SCO-to-SAG Season.

Plus, MERCURY retro (Nov 16 – Dec 6) cruises back and forth 3x(!) over the PHOENIX Point as well…(the days round Oct 30, Dec 1, Dec 12).

As MERCURY just re-entered SCO (Dec 1 – 12), we’re called to go into the depth of our thoughts and feelings, and deeper / more intimately into  communicative exchange with others – and re-trieve ‘treasures in the dark’ (maybe at places we’ve avoided).

 

MERCURY retro now back in SCORPIO…
…turns our memories to people, places, language, and intimate connections that have been ‘under wraps’ or on the back burner – until we remember what it’s like and how it touches us to talk with them or think / talk about these things.
Follow the prompting and synchronicities that guide you together! 

Rolling through a dark SCO wave or diving into a dark calm lake has us meet and touch on those places we usually avoid. As scary as they seem – they show us (sometimes through extremes) what makes us feel truly human and alive. Of the same Earth, going back to the same Earth.

 

Deep knowing from an inner Scorpionic place brings us back to the Heart, and gives everything a whole different meaning and direction (SAG). Thus is the Transformation from heavy ‘lead’ to Heart Gold..

Sounds like this has to do with MERCURY’s ‘mission’ back through SCO (in its role as the Alchemist!), before fully rising in SAG on 12/12.
So let’s tune into the signs and messages, and how they can change us – if we let them in.

 

VENUS will dive into SCORPIO too – tomorrow Dec 2 until Jan 7:
How Deep is Your Love?

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy (VENUS in late LI opposing URANUS in ARIES yesterday Nov 30) 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.

The dark-before-NEW MOON will be in dark SCO too (Mon – Wed Dec 3 – 5) – evoking deep emotional responses to what we’re going through, and facilitating transformation of what has been stuck or hidden, esp. in the fields of communication (MERCURY – what have you been hiding / not processed fully, etc?) and attractions / love / intimacy (VENUS).
Can be quite magic-all if we let it – and follow our M-r / SCO intuition and instinct.
Trust the Lunar Midwife for transformation!


The Scorpionic ALCHEMY that’s on now via MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON – leading us to a higher level of Sagittarian freedom.

 

Towards the SAG New MOON with JUPITER

 

Light Beckoning – Photo by Melanie, Dec 2018

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –Painting by Johfra Bosschart

As we’re moving towards the time of longest darkness (Northern Hemisphere) SAGITTARIUS initiates us into the Inner Light:

The Heart lantern shines on our path (as the Hermit’s
in the SAG painting…). The Advent candle lights celebrate the trust in the daylight and Christ light returning, the trust in the birth of the Divine Son at Christmas / Re-birth of the Sun at Winter Solstice.

Where is it going?
Where are we going?

And equally important:
Where do we ‘come from’, as we move in a certain direction / are on our Path?

Are we in Body-Mind-Heart-Spirit alignment in our movement, not on a guilt trip (Centaur, carrying the goat skin on his shoulder as a reminder), aiming high, divinely ignited (Zeus’s thunderbolt igniting the SAG arrow)?

The Scorpionic ‘Dark Moon’ incubation phase (with MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON) can help us process and prepare, before the Journey with / in the SAG NEW MOON phase begins which also initiates JUPITER more fully into SAG.

 

Let’s see how the

SAG New Moon shows up, and what she shows us, with her ‘birth chart:

From the West Coast perspective, the New Moon will be on Dec 6 at 11:20 pm PST – from MST on eastward, it will be Dec 7 already.

 

 

So, here’s the MOON having passed JUPITER (at 6:31 am PST on Dec 6), and meeting the SUN in mid-SAG:
A BIG New MOON – birthing and blessing the Heart Truth and its Gifts (JUPITER in SAG).

…while the SUN / MOON union squares the MARS / NEPTUNE union in PI (which in itself is a rare alignment – only comes every 2 years, exact on Dec 7).

Lots of movement and flow…
Rather than feeding stories of overwhelm, disorientation and disappointment (which all could come up in this ‘SAG – PI cocktail’ too, or trying to push or stop the energetic waves (forget it!) let’s remember to surf them…
It’s literally a Go with the Flow vibe.
And to keep it Buddha-ful…

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” Jon Kabat-Zinn


Let’s tune in, to see what else is going on in the watery world of PISCES, and how SAG brings the Spirit Fire to it:

MARS’s meeting with NEPTUNE in PI on Dec 7 happens on the day before…

CHIRON in late PI goes from retro to direct (Dec 8).

This watery cocktail is on in the first half of December, and calls for relaxing, surrendering, being open, flexible, adaptable, unattached, ‘rolling with things’, listening to the music, diving into an energy that feeds us, and surfing what-IS – very therapeutic.
…esp. in pre-Christmas times that can paradoxically get so hectic.

 

Centaur Chiron with the Wounding Arrow

The SAG NEW MOON ‘births’ CHIRON into forward motion (from Dec 8 on), after its yearly 5-months retro phase (since July 4).

CHIRON retro started this year from early ARIES, and went back into PISCES (where it’s been since 2010!) on Sept 25, cruising on the PI – AR ‘Emergence Point’ 2018 / 19:
Out of Oneness / Connectedness emerges a new beginning in authentic presence.
Its lower vibration is emergency and survival.

Have you experienced (perhaps old / re-curring) ‘wounding’ – and its Medicine! – through

  • …being either so immersed and overwhelmed that you lose yourself – and might have gotten wounded, to remind you of being more present and in natural me-first priority?
  • …or feeling disconnected, and perhaps going into compensations like addictions that ‘connect’ you yet take you out of presence, and found you need to show up again authentically – which can lead to healthier connections?
  • …or combinations / variations of the theme?


As the Piscean tide of CHIRON is turning we can more easily ‘surf the waves of Life’, express the Medicine we’ve re-ceived outwardly, and show up authentically
 (as CHIRON will fully go into ARIES from Feb 18, 2019 on).

And YES, you got it: CHIRON is a Centaur like SAG.
According to a version of the mythological CHIRON story, he transforms into SAG(!) as the culmination of his Hero’s / Healer’s / Teacher’s Journey.

There’s a natural inner connection between the SAG wisdom and inner Heart knowing that is re-initiated with the New MOON, and with CHIRON at the very end of PI / end of the Zodiac Journey:
Connection (PI) Heals (CHIRON), and ultimate Teaching (CHIRON) shows: ALL is Connected (PI). 
How does immersing in the ‘knowing Field’ affect your Heart and your Journey (SAG)?

 

Stationary CHIRON in late PI is also one of the points of contact in the Grand Water Trine, together with stationary MERCURY (going direct 10 hrs before the New Moon!) in late SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’, and the Lunar North Node in late CAN. 
Late (last 10 degrees) Water signs have a PISCES undertone – yes, more Piscean energy…
Let’s allow caring gentleness-in-oneness (late CAN NN) touch the place where we may come through deep-dive realizations of the nature of Mind (as in: thoughts and emotions) (MERCURY retro / stat in late SCO), and meet the Medicine of connecting in what’s always here – a unified field (CHIRON in late PI). It allows things to release, heal, and bring us back into natural flow.

 

The Lunar North Node in late CAN forms a square with VENUS (which was exact last week when ‘she’ was in late LI, and easing off as ‘she’ dives into SCO tomorrow Dec 2) and a square with URANUS retro in late AR (this one’s exact on Dec 2 / 3, and in effect Nov / Dec) – can you see the red T-square pointing to the North Node? 

The late CAN NN is quite a focal point as both the T-square and the Water Trine hinge on it.
A call for choices (VENUS on the LI – SCO ‘Tipping Point’) to be authentic (URANUS retro in late AR):
When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (supported by the ‘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 AND depth – with gentleness and compassion – in awareness All is ONE (late CAN with PI undertone).

 

Phoenix

The NEW MOON in mid-SAG (which has a LEO undertone), together with JUPITER nearby, and Winged Messenger MERCURY coming out of retro at the end of SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’:
A call to tune into the Loving Heart, and trust the Journey as it unfolds, surf, fly, and all! ❤ 

 

May the Spirit of the Heart, Sagittarian Trust and Piscean Faith & Surrender bless our Journey with the SAG New Moon and beyond!

Encore: * REgeneration of the Inner Love Goddess – VENUS Retro 2018 (Oct 5 – Nov 16) and ‘New VENUS’ on Oct 26.

25 Oct

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

All about VENUS!
‘She’s naturally at home’ in fair LIBRA – where the last NEW MOON on Oct 8 was, and in enjoyable TAURUS where the FULL MOON on Oct 24 was.

But at this point, VENUS has been in deep, dark  in SCORPIO (her ‘exile’) for a while…

VENUS crossed the ‘Alchemy Point’ / ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on the Day of the VIRGO NEW MOON (Sept 9).
She started her transformational retro & underworld journey on Fri (VENUS-Day!) Oct 5 when the U.S. Supreme Court nomination and sexual assault allegations thrill culminated.

With VENUS retro until FRI (yes: VENUS-Day) Nov 16, a transformation of the Inner Feminine occurs as we’re facing old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around attractions that need to be processed.
So that we come to a new place of natural empowerment – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

Noticing any of this?
If it appears to be hidden check out areas of life relating to SCO in your chart (Planets, Houses…) for clues.

VENUS (as always) started ‘her’ retro journey from the position of being an ‘Evening Star’ (setting after the SUN), which has a LIBRA ‘undertone’, showing us how we can make our life and self-worth a lot about other people (comparing ourselves, etc…)

The first half of VENUS retro processes this ‘Evening Star’ quality of VENUS with her LIBRA undertone – which is very other-oriented – perhaps to a fault – which VENUS retro brings to awareness to re-align.

The other day, very synchronistically, I came across messages for transforming VENUS ‘Evening Star’ retro in SCO (pre-New VENUS):
Get involved if you’re truly, deeply in love and passionate about something.
Not just ‘for the money’, or because others do it / following a trend. Don’t just get involved into someone else’s passion, or because you think people will like you more if you’re associated with…this. 
If you do it’s likely not sustainable since you don’t have your own authentic, intrinsic motivation.

And, I add to this: You can’t fake Magic.
This is to a powerful turning point in all our attractions from true inner depth, with VENUS Retro this Fall! 

 

Golden Venus

Good news:
The FULL MOON in TAU with URANUS on Oct 24 ‘delivered’ a ‘New VENUS’ to be
 planted in our consciousness on FRI (yes! VENUS-Day) Oct 26 (every 1 1/2 years) when VENUS retro and the SUN unite.

After the ‘New VENUS’ we’re tapping more easily into the ‘Morning Star’ quality with TAU undertone, meaning: we come from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first before choosing to engage!
What an alignment with the shifting and liberating Full MOON in TAU with URANUS!

 

The ‘New VENUS’ already re-enters her domain of LIBRA on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with VENUS retro in LIBRA, marry yourself first!
Inner Love Goddess re-emerging.

Here’s the first VENUS Retro blog post for an in-depth read.

 

Many Blessings for the shift into the ‘New VENUS’!

VENUS Retro 2018 (Oct 5 – Nov 16): REgeneration of the Inner Love Goddess (starts with Falling in Love with Ourselves….)

23 Sep

The VENUS Retro ‘Season’ is almost ON!

Birth of Venus, by S. Botticelli

Dear Friends in Cosmic Consciousness,

welcoming the VENUSian Turning Point into ‘her’ internal retro mode I’ve been reflecting on the patterns and experiences – the ‘story line’ of the previous VENUS Retro phases (every 18 months). There’s an inner thread between VENUS Retro phases.

I often re-connected with significant others, and found the deeper truth of the relationship which could lead to transformation and often release… 

If you’d like to tune in too, and find clues, here’s the line-up of the last three VENUS Retro phases, since the BIG one – the ‘VENUS Passage’ over the Sun disk in early June 2012 – remember?
May 15 – June 27, 2012 – in GEMINI
Dec 21, 2013 – Jan 31, 2014 – in CAP
July 25 – Sept 6, 2015 – in LEO
March 4 – Apr 15, 2017 – in AR / PI

VENUS presently the ‘Evening Star’, will go ‘into the Underworld’ to regenerate herself as the Morning Star!
VENUS is now stationary in early SCORPIO, and will go retro (inward-backward) on Oct 5 (until Nov 16).
This cosmic process will help us shift from being so Other-oriented (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to find our Intrinsic Value, fall in Love with ourselves, and naturally attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!

The VENUS retro phase happens only every 18 months (last one March 4 – Apr 15, 2017 as mentioned – perhaps you remember VENUS retro themes you were experiencing and learning then and which are rippling over again?).
With VENUS ‘cruising’ now in early SCO, close to JUPITER, the inner and outer Feminine is deep, intimate, powerful, and magnetic – which IS attractive – maybe a bit scary too (for those afraid of her power)…
A lot has been processed in many ways, since JUPITER entered SCO on 10/10/2017 – the same week as the Me Too movement started. 
No more closet space for hidden agenda / behind closed doors abuse of the Feminine – and of any Being for that matter….!


With VENUS’s present slowing down period (‘she”s already in pre-retro stationary ‘storm’) you might have noticed ‘early VENUS retro symptoms’ and premonitions about the effect of VENUS retro:

  • Have loved ones and lovers ‘from the past’ / from ‘past’ relationships (even from different time lines) RE-connected with you, or ‘just’ shown up in your life? 
  • Have you been RE-minded of, and attracted to RE-connect with them?
  • Are you drawn to connect in good synergy and intimacy (LI / SCO), but so many things are ‘in the way’ / old agenda needs to be cleared first????
  • Are you called to be more deeply involved with Life and All Our Relations, from within? 

 

The VENUS retrograde phase will be a checking in on, and evaluating of our patterns in relationships:
How, whom, and what we desire and attract, and what’s really a good harmonious match for us.

Even more so, it’s a RE-newal of Self-Love, and Self-Value, and a RE-alignment of whom, what, and how we bring into our lives, with Consciousness (the SUN). 

VENUS is pre-, during, and post-retro for a long time in SCORPIO (started Sept 9, and goes until Oct 31, then again post-retro Dec 2 – Jan 8).

  • What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
  • What’a your sense are your soul agreements?
  • What’s your intimacy based on?

With JUPITER holding space in SCO nearby: 
What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now?
Perhaps to outgrow it – or you already have, and it just needs to be ‘aired’?

VENUS retro will cross from SCO back into LIBRA on Oct 31, before ‘she’ dives fully back into SCO on Dec 2 – only two weeks after coming out of retro. 
Finding Self Love, in Peace, Harmony, and Balance.

 

When VENUS has reached the half-way point of ‘her’ retro journey on Oct 26, ‘she’ meets the SUN – a ‘NEW VENUS’ is born!
A turning point where we have come back to ourselves, let Spirit  (the SUN) lead, and attractions that are aligned with Consciousness can follow.

 

Esp. if you have SUN, MOON, PLANETS, or AC in late LIBRA / early SCO this VENUS retro phase will be a gift for you, to transform deep old patterns about attraction and relationship – in relation to those Planetary Archetypes.
And to fall in love with yourself, with life, with consciousness, while naturally magnetizing from that place.

And for all of us:
The area of life related to where late LIBRA / early SCO is in our charts (esp. house wise) we are invited to go inwards, release & regenerate, and from there attract in a new way.

Come join us in a small group of up to 6 women and men – where we explore these themes while going directly into participants’ charts and life experiences,

As mentioned, the purpose of VENUS retro is to transform from the recent Evening Star quality (LIBRA undertone) into a Morning Star (TAURUS undertone) / Goddess of the Dawn.
In the retro phase it’s time to release esp. co-dependency.

We tend to project denied parts of ourselves onto another, and re-attract them because of the charge and ‘contract’ we hold.
Let’s direct the freed up energy into so(u)lar conscious self radiating Being and Loving, full of natural self worth (‘Morning Star’ TAURUS undertone), like Nature in Spring, or a pure lotus flower in the light while deeply rooted in the Scorpionic depth.
RE-posting (from a previous VENUS Retro post) – timelessly relevant:
Discovering the RElationship ‘Story Line’ of Co-dependences, and REleasing it with Love!

 

Maybe this excerpt from an interview that movie star Gwyneth Paltrow did with Gay and Katie Hendricks speaks to you – it found me again, under VENUS pre-retro:

What is a conscious relationship?

  • “In a co-dependent relationship, you have two halves trying to become whole: one person who doesn’t love him/herself trying to get the other person to love them anyway.” 
  • “A conscious relationship is one in which people are awake to themselves, their feelings and thoughts, and are open to the flow of love and attention with one another.
  • “In a conscious relationship, you can be completely yourself AND completely connected.

What are some examples of co-dependent vs. conscious relationship?

  •  Co-dependent: “You have difficulty allowing others to feel their feelings. If someone feels bad, you rush in to make it better because you think it’s your fault. You worry about other people’s feelings frequently.”
    Conscious: “You are able to be present and attentive when people around you are feeling their emotions. You encourage them to feel their emotions deeply and to express those feelings openly.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In spite of your ‘best efforts’ people around you do not change their bad habits.”
    Conscious: “You commit to stop enabling the bad habits of people you care about. Instead, you take effective actions that give people the opportunity to take full responsibility for their own well-being.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You have secrets. There are things you have done or not done that you are hiding from another person.”
    Conscious: “You have no secrets. You reveal rather than conceal. You understand that hiding your feelings causes you to withdraw from intimacy, and you take every opportunity to speak honestly about your feelings.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You do not let yourself feel the full range of your feelings. You are out of touch with one or more core emotions such as anger, fear, or sadness. Anger is a particular problem for you. You find it hard to admit that you’re angry, and you have trouble expressing it to other people.”
    Conscious: “You recognize the body sensations that let you know you’re angry. You communicate about all your feelings in a straightforward, easy manner that others can understand.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You criticize or get criticized frequently. You have a strong, nagging internal critic that keeps you feeling bad even in moments when you could be feeling good.”
    Conscious: “You experience very little criticism, either from outside or within. Your internal critic is in full retirement, having been replaced by a strong inner appreciator.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You try to control other people, to get them to feel and be a certain way, and you spend a lot of energy being controlled or avoiding being controlled by others.”
    Conscious: “You are aware of those things you can control and the things you cannot control. You put your attention on things you can change, such as expressing what’s true and keeping your agreements, and you make choices that support those areas you can actually influence.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In arguments, much energy is spent in trying to find out whose fault it is. Both people struggle to prove that they are right, or to prove the other wrong.
    Conscious: “When difficulties or differences arise, you shift into wonder and healthy responsibility, asking, “Hmmm…, how am I creating this, and what could I do differently to create a better result?”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In arguments, you find yourself pleading victim or agreeing that you were at fault.”
    Conscious: “You take full responsibility for the events that happen in your relationship. You invite the other person to take full responsibility, too. You understand that a relationship can only take place between two people who are equals, both taking full responsibility for events that occur; anything else is an entanglement, not a relationship.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You frequently agree to do things you do not want to do, feel bad about it, but say nothing.”
    Conscious: “You consider every agreement before making it, and listen closely to your body wisdom as well as your mind as to whether you should make it. You keep the agreements you make and know how to change an agreement that isn’t working.”

 

So much Love for the Journey with VENUS Retro!

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.

VIRGO New Moon 09 / 09 / 18 opposite NEPTUNE, and with Fixed Grand Cross: Natural Alignment and Flow, in the ‘Hub of the ‘Wheel’

8 Sep

Dear ASTRO*NEWS Reader,

wow, just when we might think the Eclipse Season and Retro Record Summer is settling (and being washed away / cleaned up with the current final first solid rain here on the Island since…. June?) the VIRGO NEW MOON that’s coming up on 09 / 09 / 18 – nice date line-up job 😉 – can bring quite some tension to the forefront (yes, it catalyzes a Fixed Grand Cross!), plus overwhelm and con-fusion yet also Saving Grace – as NEPTUNE in PISCES holds space from the other side.

How do we align (VIRGO), and what happens as we tune in, connect and flow (PISCES)?

 

Let’s first take a look at the SABIAN SYMBOL for the NEW MOON degree – since it’s striking:

SUN and MOON at the New Moon will be exactly at 17° 00’ VIR.

17° VIRGO:

“A VOLCANIC ERUPTION

Photo credit: Pixabay

KEYNOTE: The explosive energy of long-repressed contents of the subconscious.

We are dealing here with the dramatic release of energies which have been kept in check by the outer shell of the ego controlled consciousness. It may be a spectacular catharsis, but it often takes paths of destruction. Yet unless some form of purification by fire is experienced, the inner pressure of the karmic past or of more recent frustrations would shake up perhaps even more destructively the very foundations of the personality.

At this second stage, the objective confrontation with an image of the karmic past is replaced by a subjective irruption of repressed memories and primitive cravings. Everything must be released from the psyche seeking to attain the transfigured state. The soul must become empty, the mind translucent.
The Keyword is EXPLOSION.”

 

Ahhh, lots of sticky karmic residues that came up with the Super Retro Summer are ready to be skillfully cleared with conscious awareness, and washed away, with this ‘Clean-up’ New Moon opposite NEPTUNE which – so that it doesn’t have to ‘erupt’,’explode’, and leave ‘toxic fumes’.

A NEW MOON is always a threshold from Releasing the Old to Embracing / Conceiving of the NEW.

Old VIRGO energy that doesn’t serve anymore comes as shadow to the forefront of awareness (maybe painfully so) to be ‘switched’ into a healthier, more functional, and purer vibration.

Here’s a VIRGO type ‘check list’ of ‘symptoms’ which might show their not-so-pretty face now.
Only to be RE-leased and RE-set, with ‘Like heals Like’ higher vibrational VIRGO equivalents:

Lower Vibration of VIRGO – to RE-lease Higher Vibration of VIRGO – to RE-set and Embrace
(Self) Criticism (criticism carries self-criticism) (Self) Awareness, clarity
Worries, anxiety, and problem focus How can I help? How can I give service where needed?
What would help / serve the situation?
Frustration, nagging What do I need to discern and sort out of my life because it’s not functional or unhealthy?
What actually does work? How could it work? What needs to be tweaked?
Sweating the small stuff, fretting over details Every little thing counts and can be symbolic. Every life form in nature has its place.
Maybe I feel called to do ceremony / ritual?
Health issues, esp. with digestion What is indigestible in my life?
What is my body trying to tell me?
Sense of never enough, ‘smallness’, inadequacy How do I get a sense of integration as I honour and work with my skills and specialties?
‘Selective perception of the imperfection’ I am / we are / it is whole and complete.
Practice IS perfect. Nature is perfect.

 

Mercury Rules Virgo, by Johfra Bosschart

The VIRGO Journey is about alignment of the human self with cosmic consciousness, through awareness, spiritual practice, and / or acts of service.

The MOON is the esoteric ruler of VIRGO – represented in the Sacred Feminine / Priestess / Virgin / Mother Mary, and the Harvest Goddesses.

We’re all called to do our sacred work and practice, in this Body-Temple and Temple of Here-Now, and harvest its fruits in inner fulfillment.
The Sacred Feminine and inner Alignment with Spirit-in-Form lead the way.

Where VIRGO is in your chart is where this ‘assignment for alignment’ shows up foremost.

Where the New Moon in mid VIRGO falls in your chart (house wise) points to the area of life where a New Beginning for Alignment and Refinement, and Being in your Temple come up for you nowadays.

If we already did an Astro session and I have your chart you can ask me which house it is for you, when in doubt. Otherwise – ask me too!

1st House: How you show up – BE aligned and healthy!

2nd House: What you have and value – own your wellness practice and the work and lifestyle that you value!

3rd House: Your ‘relatives’ and environment – speak from integrity!

4th House: Your home – a Temple of wellness!

5th House: Your creativity – wholesome and fun!

6th House: Your work, health, and lifestyle – you can help best if you’re in your wellness, and service in alignment IS healthy!

7th House: Your significant others – relationships work best and are functional if both of you are in your healthy wholeness.

8th House: Your deep involvement and transformations – maybe through health or work ‘crisis’?

9th House: Your travels and worldviews – go on a wellness retreat, or combine work and travel!

10th House: Your calling – in alignment with your highest purpose.

11th House: Your community and friends – a healthy bunch.

12th House: Your oneness with ALL – your Inner Temple is always available…

 

TJohfraBosschartPisceshe NEW MOON in VIR is almost precisely (only 2° off) opposite NEPTUNE retro in PI!
The SUN already opposed NEPTUNE on Fri Sept 7 (once a year), and the MOON follows, just 3 hrs before the New Moon.

PISCES, in contrast to VIRGO can be so overwhelming and chaotic – only to show:
All is ONE, and holographic in the UNI-verse. 

We’ve had lots of initiations into this, over the years since NEPTUNE has been in PI (entered 2012, now about half-way in, and still going on until 2026)

 

The VIRGO – PISCES axis is all about…

… from the VIRGO side:
Being in our ‘Temple’ of alignment with our true, holistic nature, doing our wellness practice, and using this precious life time to dedicate our gifts and skills to make the world a better place. In other words, offering sacred service.

VIR is also about digesting experiences, ordering and organizing.
In the body, it rules the small intestines.

… from the PISCES realm…
…which is all-encompassing, and nothing needs to be ‘done’, our ‘job’ is rather to perhaps get our ego and attachment to a certain outcome out of the way, be open, surrender, be available, allow, flow, hold space, or simply: BE present.

In our embodiment, PI rules the immune system, our aura, energy field, the subtle bodies and chakras (as a field).

 

So, a combo of both VIRGO and PISCES could look like:

  • Ride the waves, immerse in your element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy.
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • Clean up and play music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of kindness & service bring fulfillment.

 

BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE:

In the ‘whirlwind’ of things that can kick us off balance – an unhealthy thing, of course:
How can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ can show up, or we / things are not aligned, with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

A transformation into sustainable (rather than wasteful) use of life energy – the New MOON in VIR is also in Earth Trine with PLUTO retro / stationary (to turn around on Sept 30) in CAP.

 

Here is the Chart for the VIRGO New MOON –

Exact at 11:01 am PDT tomorrow 09 / 09 / 18 – nice date and time alignment (VIRGO loves this…)

 

 

Voila – there’s also the Grand Fixed Cross!
Looks like a Pyramid from above – and perhaps in that detached way, pointing to perfect alignment and Sacred Geometry – one of VIRGO’s ‘fortes’. 


Consisting of 

  • Stationary MARS / LILITH / the South Node on the CAP / AQ ‘Prometheus Point’ cusp – where MARS enters AQ on Sept 10.
    Here’s a blog post for MARS post-retro now back in AQ – and fully through it, until Nov 15. 
  • URANUS retro on the AR / TAU ‘Settling Point’ cusp,
  • The North Node on the CAN / LEO ‘Welcoming Point’ cusp, and
  • VENUS on the LI / SCO ‘Tipping Point’ / ‘Alchemy Point’ cusp – next in line to go retro (Oct 5 – Nov 16) – helping to change our relationships and values from the inside-out.
    VENUS crosses from LIBRA into SCORPIO, the ‘Alchemy Point’, just 9 hrs before the NEW MOON on 09 / 09 – another nice alignment.
    More about the VENUS Journey into and through SCORPIO in today’s blog post.

 

MARS – Hubble Telescope 

 

Prometheus, mythological Archetype of URANUS, capturing the Fire of the Gods for Humanity

The most dominant theme in the Fixed Grand Cross is the re-curring (# 3 out of 3) square from MARS in early AQ to URANUS in early TAU – building up, and once more exact on Sept 18.

MARS has this Spring / Summer indeed been forming 3 squares from early AQ to URANUS (ruler of AQ) which is now newly in TAU. No wonder things have been very shaky, and unsettled / unsettling:

  • May 15 (before MARS retro) – with the Kilauea Eruption just days before.
  • Then in retro Aug 1 (under MARS retro, and URANUS stationary – went retro on Aug 7) – start of the re-curring (already last year alarming) raging Wildfires here in Western Canada and U.S, esp. California.
  • Again soon, on Sept 18 in MARS forward (post retro) mode. Yes, it’s hurricane season by then… don’t want to sound dramatic, and with MARS – URANUS it’s ‘expect the unexpected’ anyway…

 

Wow! So much tension in the Fixed Grand Cross that’s exactly on between Sept 8 (VENUS square MARS) and Sept 18 (MARS square URANUS)!
Rather than being stuck in low vibrational locked, stubborn ego dominated patterns where bullying and territorialism (based on scarcity and separation) rule, and where we attract more sticky, hurtful situations…. yet perhaps repress lots of frustrations because it isn’t socially acceptable to burst out with them (see initial Sabian Symbol of Volcanic Eruption)…

let’s be aware and mindful a la VIRGO, check in: “Hey, what’s going on here?” “Where am I at?” “What am I doing / engaging in…?” “Does this work for me?” “What’s a better way of….”?), and dwell as much as possible in the ‘hub of the wheel’ where we aren’t identified or painfully attached.
Let’s be inspired by the NEW MOON in VIR opposite NEPTUNE in PI, and channel the intense energies into intentional and random acts of service, wellness, and spiritual practice (hey, everything can be!).

 

The MARS – URANUS tension will ease up over the month of October.
At the very last day of its journey through AQ, on Nov 15, MARS will go into friendly and synergistic sextile with URANUS retro which by then will be back at the very end of AR (ruled by MARS).
May we be able to see by then how the challenges of the Summer and Fall have turned into gifts of freedom!

 

Yes, other alignments are also in the NEW MOON picture – like…

  • SATURN now freshly direct and stationary in early CAP in Earth Trine with URANUS retro in TAU – active throughout August and Sept (strongest when SATURN went direct on Sept 6):
    Integrity supports freedom from old ‘comfort zones’ and habits that keep us stuck.
    Also – see Federal Court ruling re: pipeline, nobody should get away with bullying or otherwise abuse, not ‘even’ the government.
  • CHIRON retro in early AR will re-enter PI on Sept 25 over the Fall and early Winter – the Harvest Moon on Sept 24 will be imbued with that energy… more about it in the Full Moon blog post.
  • PLUTO retro is getting stationary, as it’ll turn direct on Sept 30 – more about that also in the Harvest Moon post.

 

Big Love and Rain of Blessings – into the VIRGO New Moon, opposite Oceanic NEPTUNE in PISCES on 09 / 09!
All aligned, in cosmic Awe and ONEder!

VENUS crosses the Alchemy Point into SCORPIO (09 / 09), to go retro Oct 5 – Nov 16: How deep is your Love?

8 Sep

VENUS in fair LIBRA crosses tonight the ‘Alchemy Point’ / ‘Tipping Point’, and starts ‘her’ underworld journey in SCORPIO (Sept 9 – Oct 31 & Dec 2 – Jan 8)!

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’) – which adds another layer of ‘underworld journey’!

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 October.

Of course, I’d be honoured to visit your VENUS retro themes with you already before, in private session.
Check out my Special Offer for Deep Dive ASTRO Alchemy Sessions.

Under VENUS in SCORPIO, we’re attracted to the mystery, to peek behind the scenes, to go deeper and more intimately in relationships with significant ‘others’.

I heard once a VENUS in SCO quote: “Intimacy = into me I see – through you!”

We also attract experiences that call for emotional processing – esp. as VENUS goes into her retro ‘Underworld Journey’ – starting from SCORPIO.
As we’re drawn to  look under the surface, we discover hidden beauty in the dark and changeful.
Dive in, and move through, with Love!

Don’t get too absorbed in a low vibrational ‘magical black hole’ of stuff like online crime scenes, vampire movies, or real life vampiric situations(!), personal power games, and addictions that suck your life blood.
Let’s channel the energy into deep immersion in the Mystery of Life!

 

More about VENUS retro in a specific blog post, closer to Oct 5 when the Journey begins.

Here’s already a peek at the chart for the onset of VENUS Retro 2018:

 

 

On the ‘U-turn’ (Oct 5), VENUS will come close to, yet not fully join JUPITER in SCO, as you see in the chart above, and rather ‘back off’.
Their meeting will be only on Jan 22, when both are well into SAG – showing how spacious, generous, fun, and truly free relationships can look like!


The VENUS retro and post-retro phase can help us with processing of what’s stuck and preventing this freedom:

  • What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
  • What are your soul agreements?
  • What’s your intimacy based on?
  • With JUPITER holding space in SCO nearby: What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now? Perhaps to outgrow it – or you already have, and it just needs to be ‘aired’?

Tuning into the trine from VENUS to (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE, now also retro in PISCES – an alignment that will be close (not exact – 4° apart) and stationary early to mid-Oct can be an oasis in the desert, and a truly magnificent, magical gift.
For some people also a ‘grand escape’ into fantasies, illusions, and addictions that draw you in and suck your energy – VENUS retro will show us about that side too…

Before, during and after her Retro phase, VENUS on the Alchemy Point (partially in SCO, partially in LI) will have triple dates with

URANUS (Freedom) – in VENUS ruled TAU
SATURN (Commitment / Integrity), and the
Nodal Axis (Karmic Pathways, uhhhh, oh-so retro related too)!

 

Here are these triple encounters and their themes:

  • VENUS in SCO / LI opposite URANUS in early TAU (also going retro, back into AR on Nov 6)
    VENUS pre-retro Sept 12, retro Oct 31, post-retro (then in LI – AR) Nov 30.
    Intimacy vs / and(!) Freedom in Relationships.
    Freedom from the ‘Known’, from old habitual patterns that we’re attached to (either out of comfort or out of unprocessed pain) – and may continue to attract until we set ourselves free – or Divine Intervention does.

 

  • VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in early CAP
    VENUS Pre-retro Sept 12, retro Oct 24, post-retro Dec 16.
    Commitment to deep trust and intimacy in integrity – what are ‘obstacles’, what can be worked on or completed now?
     
  • VENUS in SCO / LI square the Nodal Axis in AQ / CAP (SN) – LEO / CAN (NN) (the Nodal Axis will shift back into CAP – CAN on Nov 16)
    VENUS pre-retro Sept 14, retro Oct 31, post-retro Dec 1.
    Rather than choosing ‘splendid isolation’ to avoid hurt and pretending you’re cool and self sufficient, invite yourself or let life invite you into creativity and play. Loving your Inner Child tells you about your true needs. Be enchanted by the Magic!

 

Sooo, the strongest VENUS (in SCO) Alignment concentrations happen already next week, Sept 12 – 14 The MOON will be in SCO too then, uniting with VENUS on Sept 12 (once a month). Together they invite into sweet, intimate vibrations!
Then again round Halloween, and finally late Nov / early Dec.


The ‘NEW VENUS
‘ – half-way through her retro phase, and in alignment with the SUN will be also in early SCORPIO, on Oct 26!

 

VENUS into SCO and on the ‘Alchemy Point’ brings lots of Alchemical and Magical Gifts – if we’re diving IN!

 

Aligned with this, I’d love to invite you to Astro Offerings that go well with the VENUS Journey:


Our
 next Astro~EmBODYment on Sept 16  will be on the Soul Farm on Gabriola Island!

You and your friends are most welcome to join us! Some Scorpionic Friends already are. RSVP

No experience required.
Trust your Intuition and your Call into the Magic.

VENUS in SCO (Nov 7 – Dec 1): How deep is your Love?

Let’s channel the energy into deep immersion in the Mystery of Life. 

VENUS will join JUPITER in SCO on Nov 13.
JUPITER will be actually unaspected until then (no connection with another planet, except for MOON activations)!

Can be a double-edged sword…
Even though, VENUS – JUPITER is a wonderful connection (a la grand wedding etc), in SCO it’s not all Roses (and definitely thorns involved).

It’s good to raise awareness with VENUS / JUPITER, round:
What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
What are your soul agreements?
What is your intimacy based on?
What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now? Perhaps to outgrow it?

Tuning into the trine from VENUS to (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE, on Nov 16 (together with a SUN – CHIRON trine the same day) can be an oasis in the desert, and a truly magnificent, magical gift. For some people also a ‘grand escape’ into addictions that draw you in and suck your energy.
The MOON will be in SCO too then, uniting with VENUS on Nov 17 (once a month). Together they invite into sweet, intimate vibrations.
We’ll also do our next Astro~EmBODYment on Nov 16 – what an Astrology ‘field’ for it! You and your friends are most welcome to join us! 
No experience required. RSVP.

 

How’s it going so far, with diving into the Alchemy?
Could you use support and perspective?

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10/10 – 11/11, 2017), where we access your astrological map plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, to go into themes like :
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

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.

  • Are you in a challenging transition or transformational crisis?
  • Are you looking for perspective at a crossroad or dilemma, and for empowered choices?

I welcome you to meet and explore with the invaluable and timeless tools of astrology, and to access your own wisdom source in the process.

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 in being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships with others.
Plus, I can help you determine your powerful places on Planet Earth.
