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!

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 enters PISCES on Feb 10 (until March 6): Love IS.

8 Feb

Birth of Venus – Botticelli

 

From Feb 10 on, VENUS will make her yearly ‘appearance’ (or rather: sublimation) in PISCES where ‘she’ is traditionally ‘exalted’:

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it ‘unconditional love’ / All IS Love – All IS Love’.  
Yet, this vibration can lead us mere mortals also into confusion, disillusionment, unrequited scenarios, out of victim consciousness, or / and due to projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal (or having to escape the pedestal another puts us on). 
VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment… 

This goes for any kind of attractions, not just ‘special Valentine’s’.

 

Ocean Bliss – Photo by Melanie, Feb 8, 2018

 

Here’s a Preview for all the ‘DATES’ VENUS in PISCES (Feb 10 – March 6, 2018) will have – many!

Feb 15:
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a Valentine’s commitment?
Not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

Feb 16:
VENUS in PI is met by the PI MOON.
Can it be sweeter than this… (except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the movie with a real person.
And swim away from confusing / overwhelming ‘media showers’.

Feb 17 & 18:
MERCURY and the SUN follow VENUS into PISCES – and start a very PISCEAN season, until mid-March.
Surf the Waves, and Go with the Flow. Be open, connect, and receive.

Feb 21: 
VENUS in PI meets (her ‘higher octave’) NEPTUNE.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.

Feb 25:
VENUS in PI square MARS in SAG.
Sounds like a sweet & adventurous love affair / romance novel to me… (you name it).

Feb 27:
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

March 1:
VENUS in PI trine JUPITER in SCO.
Surrender, and you’re IN it.

March 4:
VENUS in PI conj. MERCURY and CHIRON.
Commune and connect, with and beyond words, poetry, and music. Be vulnerable, and open for the healing.


Blessings for this sublime month with VENUS in PISCES!

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.
  • Then, VENUS will go into grounding trine with stationary PLUTO in CAP on Oct 3
  • meet and pass MARS in VIR on Oct 5 (also the Full Moon day!),
  • square SATURN in SAG on Oct 8,
  • oppose CHIRON  retro in PI on Oct 10 (when JUPITER enters SCO), and
  • quincunx URANUS retro in AR on Oct 11.

 

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_planetSphinx

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.

 

Neptune

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.

 

Pluto Heartjpg

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

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

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!

 

 

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.

Johfra Bosschart Taurus

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

 

As VENUS enters TAU, it’s time to settle, enjoy Life-in-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment. A beautiful, sensuous energy – ahhh!

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or planets become a magnet.
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 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.

* PISCEAN Immersion (Lunar South Node, VENUS, NEPTUNE, MARS, CHIRON) in January: Connectivity without Co-Dependency

15 Jan

You can see it in the Full Moon chart (blog post from Jan 11), and I bet you sense it nowadays: We’re swimming in – or rather: AS a collective and universal field of energy – all connective and vibrational, atmospheric and boundary-less. 
Well, solid form is an illusion anyway.

Oceanic Evening Glow – Photo by Melanie, January 2017

 

The slow moving planets NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) and CHIRON (2010 – 2018) are in PISCES now, the Lunar South Node too (Oct 2015 – late Apr 2017 – it always goes retro, and will move into AQ thereafter), while the Lunar North Node (always opposite the SN) is in VIRGO, and met by the VIRGO MOON today and tomorrow – a good and healthy counter balance for so much PISCES. Also VENUS (Jan 3 – Feb 3) and MARS (Dec 19 – Jan 27) are presently in PISCES.
VENUS has just connected with NEPTUNE on the Full Moon day Jan 12, and tomorrow Jan 16, MARS meets and passes CHIRON, which can stir up wounds and vulnerability through co-dependency, but also activates healing via inter-dependency. With CHIRON and PISCES, the timeless mantra: Heal Like with Like (of a high vibration) is the key for release, let-go, and connect in the All-Love.

There’s a flood of influences and confluences, maybe overwhelming (NEPTUNE), and weakening / or we might feel vulnerable (CHIRON) in our individual (which is of course an illusion) identity that experiences him/herself separate, and yet has a need to feel connected.
What ‘to do with this mess’? asks VIRGO.

From the North Node’s perspective certainly a healthy practical approach would be for example to boost our immune system, rather than expose ourselves to unhealthy substances of all sorts (be it in the environment, addictive substance abuse, media overwhelm and delusion….).
And a good idea is also to release toxic energy on all levels, esp. as we approach the PISCES NEW MOON / South Node Solar Eclipse, on Feb 26 (with soo much PI energy).

Release energetically – re-connect with universe-ALL energy – let LOVE do its thing…

 

So, what’s with codependency?

PISCEAN energy is about connection. It’s a transpersonal, universal energy though. When ‘drawn into’ personal realms, there can be a need to connect into a no-bourndary, ‘endless’ way that’s quite unhealthy and doesn’t allow for breathing space or closure, often based on various early life experiences (often neglect, confusing bonding, or overwhelm / abuse) that the PISCEAN ‘person’ unconsciously tries to compensate for, to ‘get the loving connection’, yet s/he might re-attract similar situations as s/he looks for love at the wrong places with the same vibration.

Our Piscean Age that humanity is just about to outgrow has compounded such patterns and tendencies with, simplistically put, the classic co-dependent triad of victim – perpetrator – martyr / saviour.

With PISCES, the approach is paradoxical (“Let go, relax, and it comes to you, you can’t ‘get’… (LOVE?) what you already have or rather: are….”), and transpersonal (“Don’t take it personally!” Is that possible?)

A while ago, I saw a video based on the experiences and teachings of Gabor Mate that showed how addiction is a misdirected need for connection (both so Piscean!). “Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”. In German, the words for seeking (Suche) and addiction (Sucht) have the same root.

I’m sure there’ll be more downloads and releases for the PISCES Solar Eclipse New Moon, end of Feb.
May the Universe-All Love (VENUS / NEPTUNE in PI this week) show us: All is connected. May we relax into this, breathe out and let go, and let the inbreath come naturally…

Friday the 13th with VENUS conj. NEPTUNE in PISCES and North Node in VIRGO: Divine Feminine Calling…

12 Jan

So how’s it going, with the North Node in VIRGO (since Oct 2015, until end of Apr 2017)?

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

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype. So let’s honour our work, our practice, our body, our alignment in ‘cosmic order’ and follow opportunities to align more fully with what’s healthy, what works, what serves us, how we can be in our ‘temple of service’. 

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, 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 here’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 per Zodiac cycle.
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.

So in reality 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…

 

This time,  Friday the 13th is ushered in by two beautifully harmonizing astrological alignments:

  • The Full MOON on Jan 12, in ‘her’ abode of CANCER – so motherly and nurturing.
  • VENUS, freshly in her ‘exaltation’ in PISCES meets up with NEPTUNE on Jan 12 – ethereal beauty, and universe-ALL Love!

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