Wolf Moon / Total Lunar Seed Eclipse in LEO – AQ (Jan 20 / 21): Regeneration of Love, Creative Power, Freedom, and Self-Radiance

18 Jan

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Blog Reader,

Uhhh – a LEO Full MOON with many dramatic titles is coming up on Sunday evening:

The ‘SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON’.

A Total LUNAR ECLIPSE – Lunar ‘reset’ through the Earth shadow – a spectacle we can SEE from this continent if skies are clearing!

If not we can always tune in – and watch the livestream on Time & Date or other media.

Why do Wolves howl?
Seems like, to communicate: “Here I Am” to the Rest of the Pack (and probably for many other purposes).
Similarly, with this exact CANCER/ LEO – CAP/ AQ FULL MOON, the ASTRO~MEDICINE calls us to show up as we are, roar or otherwise let the pack / tribe / humanity know who you we and where we stand.

 

Eclipse Season

This month, we’re in Eclipse Season again (twice a year):  

Initiated by the JAN 5 / 6 Partial Solar/ South Node (Release) Eclipse in mid-CAPRICORN, ‘sandwiched’ by SATURN / PLUTO, with the Theme Let the Old Empire Expire.


What’s that ‘Old Empire’ in Your world, and in You?
Are you allowing the heavy ‘unmoving’ old structures and conditioning to die a natural presently accelerated death, rather than keeping them on ‘life support’ that drains you?
What in you has the tendency to keep them alive? How can you set them free?

The solution can be aided by a much needed Balance on the ‘other side of the equation’ – from CANCER / LEO where Joy and Play are, where we’re (self)nurturing and (self)loving, childlike and naturally creative.
…which the Full MOON / TOTAL LUNAR ‘Seed’ Eclipse with the North Node on the cusp from CANCER to LEO brings into the picture now, Big Time.
Calling us to a Balance that starts with lovingly Filling our Own Cup – from which place we can be the ‘Water Bearer’ in the World, doing the good work in Society / Community, in Co-creation.

 

Imagine – if everyone would do and contribute with what they’re best at (CAP) and what they truly love (LEO)! The World would be a great place, full of Joy and Creativity, and we’d use our inner Resources much better, be in our Authority and Integrity. 
Why not living from this vision (yay, JUPITER now in SAG loves those!) – and feeling instantly elevated and supported by the infinitely creative Universe?!

 

The ‘Superstar’ TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE FULL MOON

…with the MOON having just entered LEO (only 80 min before the FULL MOON!), and with many attributes (Wolf Moon, Blood Moon, SuperMoon) also shows up quite dramatically, with a T-square to URANUS in late ARIES – the ruling Planet of AQ where the SUN will be freshly in (entering AQ 20 hrs before the Eclipse).
Looks like lots of CAT-alysts for Freedom are kicking in now.

And what an Astro chart image! See below.

In our purrrsonal LEO journey, and in the AQ group consciousness, we’re experiencing all these dynamics.
Let’s see how they play out, what’s ‘UP’, wants to be seen and loved, as in LEO!

LOVE is Freedom…
They can’t be in ‘opposition’, and if still experienced that way, the URANian Awakening is the Bridge to show they’re equal and One.
Without Freedom it’s hard to access LOVE.
Without LOVE there’s no Freedom.
LOVE engenders Freedom.
LOVE grows in Freedom.

LOVE is the Medicine that helps us in the ‘snow storm’ – both grounding, and raising the vibration from which we experience the ‘events’! 

URANUS having just turned from retro to direct on JAN 6 – opened a Portal of a Retro Free Zone until MARCH 6, bringing Awakeness, Liberation, and Freedom into Consciousness now, Big Time.

Liberation, to be authentic and free, as in:
Freedom from old burdensome heavy, taxing, systemic fear and control structures (CAP South Node, close to PLUTO) which we might have even internalized.
Freedom for being true to ourselves, taking care of our needs, being gentle, compassionate, and playfully-creative (CAN North Node) rather than productivity driven and always running out of time (CAP South Node).

Even and especially a Freedom beyond ‘from’ or ‘for’ – which is still conditional.
I love this pointer by J. Krishnamurti suggesting, True Freedom is Freedom without an opposite.
And similarly, how can Love be without an opposite?

 

Wolves – from Pixabay

 

As we wake up (URANUS) from all the old ‘historic’ conditioning by the Tribe, Group Consciousness, and Society (CAP / AQ), of what Love and Freedom look like, we don’t have to be the ‘Lone Wolf’…
…and can let the World know who we are, howlingly, roaringly, or quite calmly and with inner Strength and Love where we stand, and what we stand for.

 

Eclipses 101

The TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on Jan 20 / 21 will be visible in ‘her’ Totality in the Americas, yet also in Europe, Northern Asia, Africa, in the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, and in the Arctic.
Totality will be between 8:41 pm and 9:43 pm PST, with the maximum Eclipse at 9:12 pm PST, 4 min. before the FULL MOON at 9:16 pm PST – ‘her’ chart is below.
Nice timing from the West Coast, and not long after Moon rise – let’s hope for clear skies!
Here’s the time table and Eclipse map, a la Time & Date.

 

Twice a year, a pair of ECLIPSES occurs, and they ‘string together’, through the LUNAR NODES.

ECLIPSES happen when a NEW MOON or a FULL MOON are close to the Nodal Axis, which is presently (Nov 2018 – June 2020) in CAP – CAN – yet still close to AQ – LEO (hence this one is cuspy).
On that note, ECLIPSES, as the Nodes go backwards in the Zodiac..

ECLIPSES come twice a year, in pairs of NEW MOON / SOLAR and FULL MOON / LUNAR, and sometimes even as a triad. 

The closer to the Nodes the more likely a TOTAL ECLIPSE:
The FULL MOON on Jan 20 / 21 will be at 00°51′ LEO, and the North Node at 26°29′ CAN – very close, only 4° apart and a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE!

In comparison: The SUN / MOON of the NEW MOON on Jan 5 / 6 was at 15°24′ CAP, and the South Node at 27°17′ CAP – 12° apart, and not close enough for a Total Solar Eclipse, but for a PARTIAL SE.

 

ECLIPSES are either connected with the South Node (SN), aka ‘Dragon’s Tail’ in Chinese Astrology, with the emphasis on release, or with the North Node (NN) of the MOON, aka ‘Dragon’s Mouth’, with the emphasis on new beginnings – I call it a ‘Seed Eclipse’.
This is esp. important for SOLAR ECLIPSES (exact NEW MOONs which by nature represent the threshold of endings and new beginnings).

  • The PSE in CAP on Jan 5 / 6 catalyzed the South Node in CAP (plus was close to SATURN and PLUTO) – with a strong theme of endings, transformation, release.
  • The TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on the CAN / LEO cusp on Jan 20 / 21 catalyzes the North Node in late CAN, hence has a ‘seed’ quality there.

 

ECLIPSES are at the same position in the Zodiac every 19 years – a karmic ‘string’:
On Jan 20 / 21, 2000 was a NN TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE – also visible over the Americas – here’s a ‘retro’ www for it

For the upcoming TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on Jan 20 / 21, you might want to review where you were at in early 2000, and what was the ending / release of an engagement in a Community / System (CAP / AQ), while you were following your own Heart, esp. if you have your SUN, MOON, Planets, or even Nodes on the CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ axis.

 

The Effects of ECLIPSES extend beyond ‘just’ a lunar monthly phase, rather 2 – 3 months, and there’s a link from ECLIPSE Season (last one in July 2018) to ECLIPSE Season (Jan 2019, and July 2019).

ECLIPSES are a RE-set, like rebooting your computer, after a temporary turning off of the energy.
In other words, a RE-generation of YIN-Feminine (LUNAR ECLIPSE), and of the YANG-Masculine (SOLAR ECLIPSE) energies, after a ‘darkening’.
The Total LUNAR ECLIPSE / Blood Moon is clearly a RE-generation of the YIN-Feminine, in her compassionate CANCER / passionate LEO Strength!
The ‘old’ LEOnine Yin had to be loud, controlling, and dominant to be seen, heard, but not likely more loveable…. generally speaking, we still see this attribute in women of older generations.
Now, we’re coming back to an era where the Goddess and Inner Queen in all of us is standing and sitting in her powerful place from which ‘she’ exudes Love and Nurturance.


This ‘Blood Moon’ is even also a ‘SuperMOON’ (in Perigee) – larger than ‘life’ since ‘she’s closer to Earth than ‘usual’.
Sounds like a Cosmic Mother Goddess Energy to me – strong and nurturing.

 

The TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on the CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ Cusps – Regeneration of Love, Creative Power, Freedom, and Self-Radiance

Shakti Maa Mother Goddess Durga

 

It’s an ECLIPSE of the MOON, by the EARTH Shadow which causes the temporary lunar darkening – the umbra (= shadow), out of which the MOON re-emerges.

MOTHER EARTH provokes and evokes a ‘RE-SET’ of CANCER / LEO themes like:

  • Come (back) into your creative strength and radiance!
  • Nurture, heal, and love your Inner Child!
  • Be the Artist & the Heart-ist!
  • Live Life Lovingly!

This is the TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in LEO, complementing the Partial SOLAR ECLIPSE in LEO we had on Aug 11. 2018:
The Yin Energy now meets the Yang Energy in equality, and with her own intrinsic strength.


Just felt called to pick a Goddess card from Susan Boulet’s deck, for the TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE.


IX CHEL – with the Jaguar! – showed up!

This is what the description on the back of the card says…

 

I’m so grateful and in awe of the gift and teaching in this card.
Ancient feminine strength and independence.
Fierce LOVE & Freedom!

The Feminine IS cyclical and renewing. 
Let’s step into this Power, and celebrate Life, and the renewing, life giving forces of Nature!

Let’s be in touch with our loving and creative Heart.

Let’s fill our cup, nurture our Creativity, whether biological, or other ways of offering our gifts to Humanity!


And not loose energy (South Node in late CAP with MERCURY & PLUTO) through engagement in ‘low grade’ old and heavy societal energy of the dying patriarchal subordination society with its power & control mechanisms that aren’t life sustaining.


CO-creating the NEW in nurturing ways, is the theme.

 

 

The ECLIPSE and YOU

The TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ is super relevant for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in mid-LEO, mid-AQ, but also in mid-TAU, and mid-SCO.

Your personal birth chart and which houses the ECLIPSE Axis activates for you reveals the themes and areas of life this plays out for you.

For all of us, Heart creations, nurturing, loving, and showing ourselves more fully are CANCER /  LEO FULL MOON / North Node incentives, rather than giving too much energy away to draining ways of being part of the system.

Lunar South Node Glyph

That doesn’t mean not to be informed and active politically-societally, yet too much of a ‘good thing’ in a frustrating, draining way doesn’t help, yet the tendency can be strong these days, with the South Node in CAP.

The Nodal Axis invites us to balance both ‘poles’ in a healthy way, starting with ‘breathing in’ beneficial energies on the MOON / North Node side in CAN/ LEO:

Lunar North Node Glyph

Nurturing, loving and showing ourselves as we ARE – as a Goddess Mother would be with her child.
Filled with that loving energy, connecting with others, friends, groups, humanity (AQ), and building the World we envision, and where everyone can bring out and be at their unique best (CAP) while being creative and playful (rather than ‘efforting’ as the old conditioning might suggest / reward).
And let’s honour and receive teachings and regenerative energy from Ancestors and Mother Earth (SATURN & PLUTO in CAP).

 

The Chart of the TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE FULL MOON

The FULL MOON will be exact at 9:16 pm PST, while the maximum totality will be at 9:12 pm PST.

The MOON / North Node on the CAN / LEO side are the balancing point for SO much celestial energy on the other side of the chart (from SAG to AQ, concentrating mid-CAP to early AQ)!
Both sides T-squared by URANUS in late ARIES.

Creative, cyclical Loving Goddess Energy is strong and awakened now, and meeting the ending and transforming old ‘vertical’ and linear mind-sets (SATURN, PLUTO, MERCURY / South Node in CAP) that are based on subordination, can be exploiting and abusive, show up with control / authority / power over, and may suggest: Hard work and effort first before there can be freedom.
Transformed CAP energy brings back the honouring of Mother Earth, Traditions, and Natural Laws.

 

Also ‘in the Picture’:

VENUS / JUPITER in mid-SAG (with a LEO undertone) – their exact (yearly) alignment will be on Jan 22.
More Goddess energy – leading the way, inspiring, and speaking to our Hearts!

…in square with NEPTUNE in mid-PISCES (with a deep SCO undertone). 

VENUS will be in exact square with ‘her higher octave’, transpersonal NEPTUNE, on Jan 20, evoking universal Love and Union – as we’re on the Heart Path and walk in Life with Grace, Spirit, and Surrender.

JUPITER was in square with NEPTUNE on Jan 13, and will create this alignment twice more this year: On June 16 and Sept 21. 

And VENUS / JUPITER are also in trine with MARS in ARIES (exact Jan 18 / 25) – the Warrior Spirit energizes the scene – time to trust, be brave, make a (first!) move, try out something new, and be purely in the NOW.

And…
SATURN in CAP ‘hooks up’ with NEPTUNE in PISCES in a ‘friendly’ sextile.
Together like this, and both in their ruled sign they can help us be open to and consistently practice spiritual teachings and laws that are simple and universal.
And, practically speaking, a good blend of commitment and letting go & letting God/dess, and of a loose planning that leaves lots of room for flexibility and openness to what can come our way when we don’t restrict life.
SATURN will create the 1st sextile this year on Jan 31, and 2 more to follow, on June 18, and Nov 8.

 

It’s quite unusual and striking that presently, there are  4-5 heavenly bodies in their own ruled sign:
(The MOON coming out of CANCER)
MARS in ARIES (until Feb 14)
JUPITER in SAG (until Dec 2)
SATURN in CAP (until Dec 17, 2020)
NEPTUNE in PISCES (until 2026).

Plus, NO Planet is retro (until March 5 when MERCURY goes retro).

All in all, cosmic energy can move and expresses purely – facilitating accelerated shifts and evolution.
See what’s ripe to be ‘harvested’ under the FULL MOON ECLIPSE, and turn into new creations.

 

And clearly:

The LEO / Goddess Power is not just a purrrsonal thing.
We need to bring it to community, groups, humanity!
Co-creation, through coming together in natural Strength, Love, and Radiance.

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

4 Jan

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

4 Jul

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

JULY 9
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

11 Jun

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

Quite the week – no boredom:

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

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

Live Life Lovingly!

 

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

Don’t be shy, SHINE!

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

Lioness

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

VENUS in CANCER (May 19 – June 13): Loving Gentleness and Care

17 May

Fairie

GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – Fairy Vibes

Ahhh – a soothing balance to the sharp MARS – URANUS energy:

On May 19, VENUS will move into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until June 13):
Show your love through gentleness and care, and if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.

Literally being by and IN the water is a big draw now, and can help ‘smooth’ us out and RELAX, after sooo much MARS – URANUS thrill, as well as airy fairy energy, with VENUS in GEMINI, buzzing around, interesting in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI – exact on May 7 – could have shown.

Now, under VENUS in CANCER, we might go 2 steps forward (“yes, I’m attracted to that”), 1 step back (“let me check in how I really feel about it”), or even 2 steps back, and back off altogether from ‘ideas’ that sounded good and were attractive, under VENUS in MERCURY ruled GEMINI.

And, hey:
Home is where the Heart is – ever so true and important, under VENUS in CANCER!
Esp. the CANCERian sides in us might feel drawn to home and family, and to every being and place that makes us feel like we belong.

Plus, our Planetary / AC / MC / Nodal energies in CANCER will be more magnetic and attractive this month too.

 

So let’s take it easy and gentle, and get a sense of her ‘dates’ this month:

May 19 / 20:
Right on the first weekend ‘at home’ in CANCER,
VENUS goes into sextile with URANUS freshly in TAU, into square with CHIRON freshly in AR, and into quincunx with MARS freshly in AQ.
What kind of party / family is this?
Supportive of freedom and non-clingy / non-possessive vibes.
Yet, even though it can be awkward, raw and vulnerable to connect with our feelings authentically healing comes from it.

May 25:
VENUS opposes SATURN retro in CAP.
A dilemma between our sensitivity in relationships, perhaps going back to early childhood / family dynamics, and the need to step up to the occasion – perhaps set boundaries, and in general show up with self respect?
Instead of retreating into the safe shell and giving in to fear based behaviour, let’s care of our needs. Let’s be open to others about our feelings, while being the mature grown-up, and do what’s required.

June 1 / 2:
VENUS in Grand Water Trine with JUPITER retro in SCO and with NEPTUNE in PI (which are in Trine with each other on May 25).
Gentleness allows us to go deeper to the hidden, camouflaged layers of our feelings, have bigger awareness, allow for transformation, and release – with Love.

June 5:
VENUS opposes PLUTO retro and LILITH in CAP.
You might feel in an all-or-nothing mode, esp. in relationships that meet your core – and shadow.
Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most – and to the Heart & Soul?

Much Love for the Venusian Infusion – Be nurtured by the Water!

ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… ❤

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 
True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.


As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).
