VENUS in VIRGO (Aug 21 – Sept 14) – Self Alignment is Beautiful

19 Aug

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

 

Virgo and Mercury, Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

VENUS will cross over the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self (LEO) Awareness (VIRGO) on AUG 21.
Self Awareness, loving and knowing ourselves, and being in alignment with the Cosmic Self
(as the image above illustrates so beautifully) 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 to sabotage the work that’s needed by considering it as ‘not good enough’.
That’s where Self Awareness comes in – Know Thyself and do what’s good for you.
I.o.w., what helps when these 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.

Crystal (mainly clear Quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Crystal Activation and Photo by Melanie

VENUS and the MOON in VIRGO (aligned on Aug 30) are also associated with Priestess energy.
An initiation into the Sacred Feminine is in the making – via the Super-VIRGO New MOON on AUG 30, with SUN, MOON, MERCURY, VENUS, and MARS!
Loving this Voyager Tarot representation (image to the left).

ENUS in VIRGO can bring out the d.i.y. / self sufficiency side a tad too much, so that we’re not so open to receive – reflected in the qualification of VENUS being ‘in Fall’ in VIRGO (while ‘she’s exalted in PISCES – being in loving flow attracts!).

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 LILITH and NEPTUNE retro on Sept 1 – 4 – to make sure the balance of healthy discernment / alignment and openness & easy flow is in place.

 

Line-up of ‘dates & dances’ for VENUS in VIRGO with other Planets 

In order (yep, gotta be orderly, says VIRGO) of appearance:

 

AUG 21
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

AUG 24 – 26
VENUS conjunct MARS (in VIRGO since Aug 16) on Aug 24, quincunx CHIRON retro in AR on Aug 25, and trine URANUS retro in TAU on Aug 26.
This beautiful Earth Trine of VENUS / MARS – URANUS  brings stability to what could have shown up before as unsettling, with URANUS in
(VENUS ruled) TAURUS, squared by VENUS (early Aug) & by MARS (early July) while they were both in LEO.
Good to be in loving Self Alignment while setting ourselves free from sticky attachments and ‘ownership’.

 

AUG 30
The NEW MOON in VIRGO joins VENUS (and MARS too).
Beauty to behold and engage with (yet never own).

 

SEPT 1 / 2
VENUS in VIR trine SATURN retro in CAP, and opp. LILITH in PISCES (Sept 1), and square JUPITER in SAG (Sept 2).
Good to be in loving Self Alignment and commitment to integrity, while not playing ‘small’ and ‘managerial’ but trusting the abundance of Life and being attuned to our Cosmic ‘wild’ Nature. 

 

SEPT 4 – 6
VENUS opp. NEPTUNE retro in PI.
Let the Love in!
VENUS trine PLUTO retro in CAP.
Naturally empowered and grounded in the Core of your Being – Love.

 

SEPT 13 – Day of the PISCES – VIRGO Full MOON / Harvest Moon.
And: Day of the Sacred Feminine – Friday the 13th!
MERCURY in VIRGO meets VENUS, the day before both enter LIBRA – ruled by VENUS.
Speaking from Love, clearly and in integrity – beauty shines through this.

 

SEPT 14
VENUS goes into LIBRA (until Oct 8)
VENUS being presently the ‘Evening Star’ and also in LIBRA is very peace & harmony, beauty & aesthetics oriented.
It also shows us about our relational ‘bias’ (comparing ourselves / designing ourselves for others / making our life and our choices overly about others).
What does true Balance say?

 

VENUS in VIRGO attracts and helps us in relation to Self Awareness, Alignment, and being of Service.

Which we can access most easily via the area of life related to VIRGO in our chart:

 

1st House:
Showing up aware (don’t be too self-critical!) and self contained attracts.

2nd House:
What you have and value –
Your health and self sufficiency are attractive gifts!

3rd House:
Your environment with its mentality –
Grounding you, and showing you where you can help.

4th House:
Your home & origin –
A workshop / working people?

5th House:
Your creativity, children, and lovers –
Be discerning, use your skills, and do what’s healthy.

6th House:
Your work, health, and lifestyle –
Being in good shape is a good health insurance, and good for your business too.

7th House:
Your significant others –
Doing their thing… Check out what types of people you attract, and discern what kind of relationship is healthy, and in alignment for you.

8th House:
Your deep involvement and transformations –
Which practice helps you, them, and you together?

9th House:
Your travels and worldviews –
Travel on a budget, for work, and to help ‘the world’.

10th House:
Your calling and purpose –
To be in alignment and of service.

11th House:
Your community –
Aware & healthy – wellness practitioners welcome.

12th House:
Your oneness with ALL –
Wholeness as Self-in-All.

 

Blessings for the (precisely) 3 weeks & 4 days of VENUS in VIRGO!
Wishing you a consciously de-light-full time!

Friday the 13th with VENUS in VIRGO: Divine Feminine Calling…

12 Jul

For records, this is the second (and last) Friday the 13th this year. # 1 was in April.

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world would want us believe…
It is actually a VENUS / MOON Day…

 

Let’s start with VENUS:
How’s it going, with VENUS in VIRGO (since July 9)?

  • Have you been clearing your Inner Temple?
  • Have you been honouring the inner and outer Feminine?
  • Have you become aware of ‘issues’, and found ‘remedies and recipes’?
  • Do you feel more self sufficient perhaps? Whole and complete, ‘perfect’ as you ARE…

 

4 R

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype.

Hope you’ve been able over the last week to honour your work, your practice, your body, and to align more fully with what’s healthy, what works for you, and how you can be in your ‘temple of service’.
‘The problem’ with VENUS in VIRGO:

Our VIRGO side is so self-contained and service oriented that ‘she’ has sometimes – actually: often! – a hard time asking for help, and being open to receive. VENUS is traditionally not well placed in VIRGO (which is ruled by MERCURY) since the d.i.y. mode isn’t so geared towards attracting partners, more to ‘working on self’ and being of service to others.
VIRGO can get very busy, nervous, over-think and over-analyze situations (the MERCURY influence), and is often concerned about things that could ‘go wrong’ since it’s got an ‘imperfection and problem bias’. When that energy isn’t well channeled into work projects but turned against oneself, VIRGO deals with inadequacy issues: SO much work-on-self is apparently required to be ‘perfect’, or even ‘good enough’ – Relax, VIRGO, you are beautiful, in imperfect perfection!


Yet, when channeled into being in alignment with one’s Higher Self (see the Johfra painting), VIRGO is so exquisitely and purely on purpose, bringing order into chaos, and seeing the Sacred in the ‘small’.
VIRGO comes before LIBRA:
Cultivating self-awareness and self-sufficiency are prerequisites for relationships where both partners are whole and complete in themselves yet chose to be together!

 

Speaking of the 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!

venusbotticelli

Birth of Venus (Detail) – Painting by S. Botticelli

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

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, just one day after the NEW MOON in CANCER – where the MOON is ‘at home’ – a pretty exact New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse that-is!

The SUN & MOON union of the New Moon in CANCER is even opposite PLUTO retro in CAP – showing how the old hierarchical, patriarchal structures and systems are going extinct and transform into something else that evolution is about to express itself as – while still doing everything in their power to assert their legitimacy and authority – even with brutal orders and wars that mostly affect children and families.
Change happens though – let it be in and through us!

Our Humanity, Compassion and Inclusiveness brings us forward and helps us outgrow the Old and build the New, from the inside-out.

 

On Friday the 13 and beyond, let’s celebrate, and live the Divine and Sacred Feminine and Mother Nature in her life giving cycles!

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!

Friday the 13th with VENUS going from VIRGO into LIBRA (on Oct 14): Divine Feminine Calling…

13 Oct

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

I’d rather say (and suppose SATURN and LILITH in late SAG support my case):
It’s time to drop and outgrow old, limiting beliefs, agendas, and stories!

For records, this is the second (and last) Friday the 13th this year. # 1 was in January.

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 VIRGO (since Sept 19)?

Have you been clearing your Inner Temple?
Have you been honouring the inner and outer Feminine?
Have you become aware about ‘issues’, and found ‘remedies and recipes’?
Do you feel more self sufficient perhaps? Whole and complete, ‘perfect’ as you ARE…

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype.

Hope you’ve been able over the last month to honour your work, your practice, your body, and to  align more fully with what’s healthy, what works for you, and how you can be in your ‘temple of service’.
VIRGO is so self-contained (and has sometimes – often! – a hard time asking for help, and being open to receive). VENUS is traditionally not well placed in VIRGO since it’s the d.i.y. mode isn’t so conducive to attracting partners, more to working and being in service to others, being busy and often concerned about things that could ‘go wrong’. and even to dealing with inadequacy issues: SO much work-on-self to be ‘perfect’ or even ‘good enough’ – Relax, VIRGO!


Yet, when channeled into being in alignment with one’s Higher Self, VIRGO is so exquisitely and purely on purpose, bringing order into chaos, and seeing the Sacred in the ‘small’.
VIRGO comes before LIBRA: Cultivating self-awareness and self-sufficiency are prerequisites for relationships.

 

VENUS will go into LIBRA, one of ‘her’ domains (besides TAU), on Sat Oct 14 (until Nov 7).

A wonderful phase for meeting others in natural complementariness, attracting good ‘matches’, being more relationally oriented, regaining peace and balance, being drawn to beauty, arts, and culture, and to all things refined. Ahhhh!
VENUS in LIBRA is a beautiful time to bring the Sacred Feminine into relatedness – and perhaps to rebalance our lives if we’ve become too busy, hectic, anxious, and have been dealing with too many to-do’s.

 

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!

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 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…

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

VENUS passes MARS (Oct 5), just before the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon: Conscious Cooperation!

4 Oct


On Oct 3, VENUS in VIR, just ‘behind’ MARS, went into Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP: 

With all the violence and aggression in this world: 
Love is THE SuperPower! ❤

 

Tomorrow Oct 5, VENUS will catch up, unite with, and finally pass MARS in VIRGO!

Greek Vase with Ares (Mars) on one side…

 

MARS has been ahead of VENUS since Spring 2016, and we’ve seen the effects of a MARS driven world….

VENUS in (MARS ruled) ARIES almost passed MARS early March this year (when a lot of Women Warriors stepped up against chauvinism, esp. in and inspired by the U.S.
But then, VENUS  went retro to RE-new herself and her inner values in spiritual and unifying PISCES, while some of the peace loving energy might have gone passive and giving up and feeling powerless facing ‘what is’.
Yet there’s been a powerful movement and there are forces that have been holding space energetically for Peace and Love in the ‘invisible realm’ all along, emerging in us and through us when we act with the Power of Love.

In the meantime the ‘Warrior Planet’ MARS stormed ahead… and we’ve seen a lot of evidence for its presence. Not much evidence for the fine art of diplomacy…

…and Aphrodite (Venus) on the other side.

 

VENUS is coming though… in the sign of the Sacred Feminine, VIRGO, where ‘she’ meets and passes MARS – tomorrow.

Leaving behind outmoded and destructive confrontation (MARS).


May the world, humanity, and everyone of us come back into integrity and alignment (VIR), with right relationship/s and in cooperation (VENUS)!

 


VENUS goes into square with SATURN on Oct 8, and MARS on Oct 9:
Specifics and ‘details’ can make things complicated and create conflict and stagnation – or just need to be ‘ironed out’ to open the path for the YES.

VENUS will go into opposition with CHIRON in PISCES on Oct 10, and MARS on Oct 15:
Integrity in adaptive Fluidity can be the Medicine.

 

Let’s see what the SABIAN SYMBOL for the VENUS / MARS conjunction tells us:

VIRGO 20°:
A CARAVAN OF CARS HEADED TO THE WEST COAST.

KEYNOTE:
The need of cooperative effort in reaching any “New World” of experience.

It is difficult to know, from the original formulation of the clairvoyant’s vision, the type of caravan of cars that was visualized; what seems to be clearly implied is a process in which a group of persons are journeying together — thus linking their consciousnesses and energies (the “car” symbol) — in order to safely reach the goal of destiny. Here there is no longer any sense of competition, but an ordered and structured endeavor.

At this last stage of the five-fold sequence the past is entirely left behind; humans cooperate in the great “adventure in consciousness” in a TOTALIZATION OF PURPOSE AND EFFORT.”

 

Tomorrow Oct 5 will be also the day of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon!
Balance (FM) and Union (VENUS / MARS) of Feminine and Masculine.
 

Calling us to show up as the Warriors of LOVE, in Conscious Cooperation!

VENUS crosses the ‘SPHINX Point’, into VIRGO :: Inner Sacred Feminine in the Temple of Wholeness

19 Sep

VENUS crosses the ‘Sphinx Point’, and enters VIRGO today Sept 19 (day of the VIRGO New Moon 2017), for a journey in the sign of the Sacred Feminine until Oct 14.

VENUS in VIR will soon (can you feel it already?)

  • oppose NEPTUNE retro in PI on Sept 29.

Johfra Bosschart: Virgo, Ruled by Mercury

 

Inner Sacred Feminine in the Temple of Wholeness

We just boded VENUS farewell in LEO where ‘she’ has been his Summer since Aug 25. Another unusually hot Summer  here in BC Canada – too hot and fiery in the forests and in the land!
On the positive note, I trust your inner journey has shown what brings YOU true joy, from the inside out!
VENUS also connected on Sept 16 with the North Node of the Moon (which is in LEO Apr 2017 – Nov 2018) – YOU are # 1 in your life. Radiating from the Heart is the way to go, and be creative from (rather than loosing energy over watching other people’s show and drama).

VENUS enters VIRGO today Sept 19, to travel through this energy of initiation, purity, alignment, practice, service, from our intrinsic value/s until Oct 14.

The VIR side shows us that we don’t ‘need’ private one-on-one relationships out of feeling incomplete or ‘not good enough’ without them. What matters primarily is our wholeness, in alignment with spirit and soul. We offer our skills and service from that place. ‘Work relationships’ in this sense are fulfilling too.
VENUS on the ‘Sphinx Point’ initiates us into self-awareness, integrity, and service.

As MARS, MERCURY, the SUN, and these days also the dark-before-New MOON are all in VIRGO too, now joined by VENUS, we can enjoy getting things done, cleared, and organized.
We are drawn to develop healthy, productive habits (VENUS in VIR), and to build relationships, based on these values. Which hopefully also means: We don’t have to do it all ourselves! VIR can be so self contained and d.i.y. oriented – partially out of integrity, partially out of perfectionism, or even angst…
VENUS’s charm and pleasant energy brings a good balance to the frustrated and angry MERCURY / MARS energy in VIR we have seen on the weekend – which hopefully helped you though to speak up for what does and what doesn’t work for YOU!

With VENUS having gone through LEO we can more fully value ourselves and attract from there, yet also know that what we attract is a reflection of aspects (incl. projected shadow aspects) of ourselves.
VENUS opposing NEPTUNE on Sept 29 shows us, “there’s only one of us here”, in the ‘field’.

Giving off loving vibes (VENUS – NEPTUNE) makes diplomacy and considerate win-win negotiation and coordination with others easier, and it will be better received. Of course, the LIBRA SUN from Fri (Sept 22) on supports that too.
Hmmm, and so many choices, or so many people and interests to coordinate and balance, says also JUPITER in LIBRA (until it crosses over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCO, on Oct 10 – choiceless choice??!).
And remember: The ‘deal’ doesn’t have to be ‘perfect’.

You may say: VENUS is considered ‘in Fall’ in VIR (‘she’ is exalted in PI) – what’s with that?
This too only illustrates and warns us of the shadow and ‘low grade’ VENUS in VIR:
Pleasing because of inner inadequacy, self-critical tendencies, and a need to fabricate perfection. What helps with this is the upcoming trine of VENUS in VIR with PLUTO in mid-CAP (which has a TAURUS undertone – TAU, as LIBRA are both ruled by VENUS):
As we live from essence, that is incorruptible, we are naturally empowered to not buy into those old personal and historic stories and conditioning anymore, and rather value one’s wholistic inner sacred Feminine.
The Sabian Symbol of the PLUTO station is quite telling too (more about this in the PLUTO Direct blog, closer to Sept 28, and a hint about it also in the VIR New Moon Blog – stay tuned).

Our work and practice is our temple, and so is our body. Let’s treat them with reverence, and begin every day and every new act of service as if we entered a sacred space.

VIRGO’s journey is an alignment of the human self with cosmic consciousness, through awareness, spiritual practice, and acts of service.

The New MOON – esoteric ruler of VIRGO – Sacred Feminine / Priestess / Virgin / Mother Mary, and Harvest Goddesses /– welcomes VENUS into VIRGO today Sept 19 / 20.

All of us are called to do our sacred work and practice, in this Body-Temple and Temple of the Here-Now. And to harvest its fruits, in inner fulfillment.

VENUS will oppose NEPTUNE retro in PI on Sept 29.
It can show up as a dilemma (opp) between our love for ‘doing the work’ (VENUS in VIR), and receiving, surrendering, relaxing, just being (NEPTUNE in PI).

NEPTUNE is also the ‘higher octave’ of VENUS, a universal loving-beingness. So let’s allow it to reach us, and allow ourselves to reach others and meet life from this space.

Working in the ‘field’ (as in: quantum field), and helping from a loving place where energy streams is a beautiful way of being with this tension.

On Oct 3, VENUS in VIR will go into Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP, which has a stabilizing effect, esp. for relationships and work projects that have integrity.

By the way, ever since New Horizons showed us photos of PLUTO from the ‘Close Encounter’ fly-by in July 2016, we never look at the far-out heavenly body and  Astro Archetype the same. Love is Power! ❤

 

Hubble Mars

On October 5, VENUS will catch up, unite with MARS in VIRGO, and finally pass ‘him’.
MARS has been ahead of VENUS in the last months. VENUS in ARIES almost passed MARS early March, but then went retro to RE-new herself and her inner ‘values and vows’ in PISCES. In the meantime the ‘Warrior Planet’ MARS stormed ahead… and we’ve seen a lot of evidence for its presence. Not much evidence for the fine art of diplomacy…

VENUS is coming though… in the sign of the Sacred Feminine, VIRGO, where ‘she’ meets and passes MARS. 

Oct 5 will be also the day of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon! Balance (FM) and Union (VENUS / MARS) of Feminine and Masculine. Calling us to show up as the Warriors of LOVE!

 

Saturn Pop

On Oct 8, VENUS in late VIR squares SATURN in late SAG:
Here we are called to discern what serves and is healthy (VIR) and to say NO (SATURN) to certain offers and directions (SAG) – esp. the ones that are too good to be true and real (SATURN in SAG), so that we can say YES to other engagement that we are aligned with (VIR).
When such a challenge arises which might feel like a rejection / limitation ask yourself: What’s the initiation here? It might feel like a test – but hey, be the tester too!

 

In ‘her’ finale in VIRGO, VENUS will oppose CHIRON retro in PISCES on Oct 10 (the day JUPITER will enter SCORPIO!), and go into quincunx with URANUS retro in ARIES on Oct 11.
‘Healing’ is at least as much about connecting in resonance, and knowing what it’s like or at least tune in, with a loving heart, as it is about ‘doing the right thing’ for the other as for oneself.  LOVE Heals!
And loving healing liberates. We’re all in this together. “You are another me”!
In Lak’ech Ala K’in! ❤

More about the JUPITER SHIFT in one of the next ASTRO~NEWS Blogs, of course.

Lots of VENUSian activations in early October!
Let’s bring LOVE to everything we do, and how we show up!

Blessings for the month with VENUS in VIRGO!
May the inner Priestess-in-Wholeness be our muse and mentor.

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.

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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