Friday the 13th: Sacred Feminine Calling…

13 Apr

Expecting a spooky story, apropos Friday the 13th, JUPITER now in SCORPIO, and the MOON in Pisces?
Well, it’s your choice… so many ways of perceiving ‘reality’ and the Archetypes.

I’d rather say:
It’s time to drop and outgrow old, limiting beliefs, agendas, and stories!

For records, this is the first Friday the 13th this year. # 2 will be in July.

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world would want us believe…
I’ll roll that out in a bit.

Let’s start with VENUS –
Why? To be revealed in a bit.

 

How’s it going, with VENUS in TAURUS (since March 30, until Apr 24)?

Have you been slowing down to enjoy Spring with all your senses?
Have you been consciously valuing your precious human embodiment?
Have you been honouring and celebrating the inner and outer Feminine?

 

Johfra Bosschart: Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian / Aries Warrior Takes a Rest)

 

Yes, she does – VENUS is ‘right at home’ in sensual and pleasurable TAURUS, and that’s where ‘she’ dwells on Friday the 13th – today. What do the two have to do with each other?

 

Speaking of Sacred Feminine:
How do you hold Friday the 13th?

What’s your sense about its reputation as a ‘bad luck’ or even scary day?
What’s considered ‘scary’ might actually be sacred!

Did you know that the Norse Goddess Freya gave Friday its name?
She is the equivalent of 
VENUS / Aphrodite, Goddess of beauty, attraction, erotic pleasures, and art.

The Romans called the 6th day of the week ‘De Veneris’ (belonging to VENUS) which became Venerdi in Italian, Viernes in Spanish, and Vendredi in French.

So that’s the case for VENUS and Friday.

Just for fun, here are the 7 days of the week and their associations with planets, Sun, and Moon:

SUNday

MOONday

MARSday (Mardi, Martedi) – Tuesday relates to Tyr / Tew (Norse good of war and law – equivalent of Mars)

MERCURYday (Mercredi, Miercoles)
JUPITERday (Jeudi, Jueves) – Thursday relates to Thor (Norse good of thunder – similar to Jupiter / Zeus)

VENUSday (Vendredi, Viernes) – Fridey relates to Freya

SATURNday

 

And now, what’s with the 13?

Uhh, there is a lot of story around vilifying the number 13… do your research.
The number 13 may have been purposely vilified by the founders of patriarchal religions in the early days of Western civilization because it represented femininity. Thirteen is said to have been revered in prehistoric goddess-worshiping cultures because it corresponded to the number of lunar (menstrual) cycles in a year (13 x 28 = 364 days).

Moon Goddess

Zodiac years have 12 – 13 New Moons and / or Full Moons.
As the solar calendar triumphed over the lunar with the rise of male-dominated civilization, so did the “perfect” number 12 over the “imperfect” number 13.

The association of 13 with the feminine and lunar cycle is the MOON side of Friday the 13th.

Hence, we have a strong VENUS / MOON themed day.

Those who sowed the seeds of superstition must have been very afraid of the power of the Feminine…

 
Tomorrow, Saturday APR 14:VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with ‘wild’ LILITH in CAP.
Be in Nature, and in Your True Nature. Always the Best!
Then, on Sunday APR 15 is the day of the NEW MOON in ARIES, with URANUS.
Loving how this super-fresh NEW MOON follows Friday the 13.
Ha, all aligned with VENUS / MOON these days…!

Let’s celebrate, and live the Divine and Sacred Feminine!

VENUS into TAURUS (March 30 – Apr 24): Enjoying Life-in-Spring!

29 Mar

Johfra Bosschart: Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian / Aries Warrior Takes a Rest)

SPRING comes into full bloom, as VENUS enters TAU tomorrow March 30!

Time to settle, enjoy Life-in-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment.

A beautiful, sensuous energy – ahhh!

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets and the House TAU occupies in your chart become a magnet, while VENUS travels through, until Apr 24.

Let VENUS show you how to slow down, cultivate pleasure and the arts, be in nature, and let your body be a temple of joy!

 

Spring by Italian Renaissance Painter G. Arcimboldo

Not really stressful, rather a calm, grounding, and powerful ‘weather’ for VENUS in ‘her

own’ TAURUS abode (one of the Zodiac signs ‘she’ rules)…

Sighhh of relief, after the (hopefully cathartic, possibly disruptive) URANUS contact exact on March 28, and the intense square with PLUTO, exact on March 23, while ‘she’ was in ARIES.
Hope you didn’t ‘sign up’ too fast, too furiously for a liaison of all sorts.
Thankfully, MERCURY retro in ARIES presently, and JUPITER in SCO this year are helping us too to not take things at face value….


So here they are:

VENUS in TAURUS Aspects (Dynamics with other Planetary Players) during the month of APRIL:

 

  • APR 7 & 10 (active all week):
    VENUS in TAU will go into realistic Earth Trine with the MOON and SATURN in CAP (Apr 7), and with MARS in CAP (Apr 10).
    Are you drawn to traditions, Elders, traditional values, working with the Earth, in a respectful and fulfilling way? You attract what you value, says VENUS.
    This is also a good time to attract people with whom to build and work, based on shared values.
    Rather than going for quick rush / quick fix, enjoy solid quality incl. quality time and what matters in the long run.
    Opportunities to attract / re-activate quality connections – from a place of integrity, simplicity, and maturity – more enjoyable!

 

  • APR 12 (active Apr 11 – 13 which is FRI the 13th – a VENUS / MOON Day of the Sacred Feminine!):
    VENUS (in ‘her’ own sign of TAU) will go into ‘sexy’ sextile with NEPTUNE in its ‘own’ sign PI (and the MOON in PI too – where VENUS is exquisitely ‘exalted’ – the LOVE-in-Unity)). 
    Let’s bring ourselves into a good vibration, literally being by the water / in nature in general, and let Mother Earth absorb and transmute our ‘stuff’, let go, release, and reconnect from there. Let’s be open, enjoy Life-in-Spring, attract from a loving vibration, and allow the Universe to bring you goodies!

 

  • APR 14:
    VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with LILITH in CAP.
    Be in Nature, and in Your True Nature. Always the Best!
    Not that this inspiration ‘goes away’ when the aspect weakens a few days later.
    It’s a timeless theme, accentuated with accentuated growth opportunities mid-April.

 

  • APR 17:
    VENUS (and the MOON) in TAU will go into Opposition with JUPITER  retro in SCO, and into Earth Trine with stationary PLUTO in CAP.
    This is also the day when SATURN will go retro, and CHIRON will (temporarily) enter ARIES, plus the late AR SUN will pass URANUS on APR 18.

    A day ‘loaded’ with Planetary shifts and alignments. Earthy VENUS and her ‘allies’ are good balance.
    Groundedness and slow enjoyable pace and presence are beautiful and powerful – connected in the natural power of Life-in-Spring – while change is the only permanent.

 

  • APR 24 (two days after EARTH DAY):
    VENUS enters GEMINI (until May 19).
    De-Lightful Connections.

VENUS into TAURUS (June 6 – July 4): Enjoying Life!

6 Jun

VENUS just settled TODAY into ‘her’ natural abode of TAURUS – after a very loooong (almost 14 weeks, since early Feb, due to VENUS retro) adventure in ARIES.

A sigh of relief for many of us, since it’s been also a stressful, upsetting, unsettled time, and we might have attracted (VENUS) many comings and goings ‘speed dating’ style, yet nothing ‘stuck’.
VENUS in AR helped us magnetize and choose what we really want, in relationships (esp. in the area of life related to ARIES in our charts),  and be ok with a zig-zag course of trials and errors. Even better, with the crescendo contact of VENUS – URANUS (June 3) in late AR, be authentic, present in the moment, truly liberated and FREE in any relationship. Lots of experimentation / no expectation.

Not really stressful aspects for VENUS in ‘her’ TAURUS abode… sighhh (after the triple URANUS contact / PLUTO square while ‘she’ was in ARIES). Just some tweaks…


VENUS in TAURUS Aspects (dynamics with other planetary players) this month of June:

  • VENUS will go into ‘sexy’ sextile with MARS (now in CANCER) on Fri June 9 (the FULL MOON day):
    A chance (this week building up) to be in tune with our needs, assert them gently (MARS in CAN) and stick with what’s enjoyable and a good match (VENUS in TAU).
  • VENUS will go into quincunx with stationary JUPITER in LIBRA (ruled by VENUS), and into sextile with stationary NEPTUNE in PISCES (where VENUS is exquisitely ‘exalted’ – the LOVE-in-Unity), on June 19 / 20:
    Among the many, many options, let’s make wise choices: what’s really a good match for us, in various areas of lifestyle and relationship – came up for me with people, directions, and technology tools (JUPITER in LI changes direction from Earth perspective on June 9) – and when overwhelmed / inundated by a flood of things (NEPTUNE in PI also changes direction this month) let’s bring ourselves into a good vibration (literally being by the water, or in nature in general, and let Mother Earth absorb and transmute our ‘stuff’) and let go, release, and reconnect from there.
  • VENUS in TAU will finally go into Earth trine with PLUTO retro in CAP, on June 24.
    Groundedness and slow enjoyable pace and presence are beautiful and powerful – connected in the natural power of Life-in-Spring.
