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

Dear Astro~News Friend,

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

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

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

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

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

Peacock-a-boo. Photo by Melanie

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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


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

ASTROLOGY Supports INNER ALCHEMY

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

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

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


On the ‘problematic’ side of VENUS in SCO:

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

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

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

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

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!

VENUS will be in LEO until Aug 21, adding to the Summer Radiance, and a good balance to the otherwise quite retro & introspective Summer (Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto are all already / soon retro). 

 

What’s ‘she’ up to, during her ‘cat walk’?

A fresh way of being authentically present from the inside-out (CHIRON retro in ARIES), self-loving / life-loving (VENUS in LEO), naturally brilliant and magnetic.

 

AUG 2
VENUS square URANUS in TAU.
No room for old sticky attachments.
Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

 

AUG 8
VENUS in Fire Trine with JUPITER retro / stationary in SAG.
Go all out, and radiate generously. What a time to en-joy Life and be on a Summer adventure!
Yet you know it’s all a reflection of Self Love.

 

AUG 9
VENUS quincunx SATURN retro / the South Node in CAP.
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!
The radiant, creative, loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess attracts without needing to prove anything!

 

AUG 11 
VENUS quincunx with (‘her’ higher octave) NEPTUNE retro in PI:
A Love Affair with the Universe. Don’t take things too purrrsonally. Love is letting go, and letting BE. Tune into the Divine Feminine & Universal Love.

 

AUG 13
VENUS meets the SUN in LEO, and goes quincunx PLUTO retro in CAP:
Dedicate your Love to the Well-Being of All. Find Soul Love that never gets old, and isn’t even time-bound. You are the One Love. Yours to radiate.

 

AUG 21
VENUS crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR (there until Sept 14):
From the Queen to the Priestess. Bringing our Love into Service and Alignment.

Your deep involvement and transformations – perhaps from emotional attachment into pure Love?

VENUS in CANCER (July 3 – 27): Loving Gentleness and Care

2 Jul

Dear Cosmic Souls,

Ahhh – a soothing balance to the sharp MARS – URANUS energy that’s kicking in next week, esp. round July 11:

The GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – a Fairie vibe

Tomorrow July 3, VENUS will move into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until July 27):
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. It can help relax and ‘smooth’ us out, after sooo much Eclipse stir-up, plus re: the MARS – URANUS thrill that’s kicking in next week.
With the airy fairy VENUS in GEMINI energy since June 8 we enjoyed buzzing around, interested in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI and opp. JUPITER in SAG round June 23 / 24 could have shown.

Now, as VENUS enters 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 felt sense of her ‘Planet Dates’ this month.
They’
re most ‘UP’ between July 16 – 18, round the Full MOON / PLE. 

 

JULY 3
VENUS enters CANCER

 

JULY 8
Not even one week ‘at home’ in CANCER, VENUS goes into sextile with URANUS freshly in TAU, and into square with CHIRON freshly in ARIES – while CHIRON goes retro that day too.
What kind of tribe / family is this?
Supportive of freedom and non-clingy / non-possessive vibes.
Even though it can be awkward, raw and vulnerable to connect with our feelings authentically Healing comes from it.

 

JULY 16 – Day of the Full MOON / PLE
VENUS connects with SIRIUS & the North Node in CANCER, and goes into quincunx with JUPITER retro in SAG, and opposite VEGA / SATURN retro / the South Node in CAP.
A dilemma between our sensitivity in relationships (which likely goes 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 (“What do they say?” “Will they reject / punish me? / exile me from the tribe?”), let’s take care of our needs and find freedom in this. Let’s be open to others about our feelings, while being the mature grown-up, and do what’s required. Plus, the ‘Old Empire’ is on the way out anyway….

 

JULY 18
VENUS in Water Trine with ‘her higher octave’ NEPTUNE retro in PISCES.
Gentleness and flow allows to connect and to release – with Love. Be like the Ocean.

 

JULY 21 – last day of CANCER 2019, and the M-r half-way point aka ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’
VENUS opposes PLUTO retro 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?

 

JULY 24
MERCURY retro in late CANCER as ‘The New MERCURY’ meets VENUS.
Connect and speak from your Heart & Consciousness – a Meeting in the Love.

 

JULY 27 (- Aug 21)
VENUS enters LEO.
Show your Colours and your Love.

 

 

 

VENUS in CANCER attracts and magnetizes what relates to a sense of / need for Belonging. 
Which you can access most easily via the area of life related to CANCER in your chart:

 

1st House:
How you show up. Care for, belong to, and BE Yourself!
You attract reflections of your caring Nature.

2nd House:
What you have and value – Your gentleness & compassion is a gift that’s attractive!

3rd House:
Your environment – Your Tribe is nearby!

4th House:
Your home – The Heart calls you Home!

5th House:
Your creativity – You’re the HEART-ist!

6th House:
Your work and health – A warm & caring Nature is a good health insurance, and good for your business too 🙂

7th House:
Your significant others – they can be like Family! Check out what types of people you attract.

8th House:
Your deep involvement and transformations – perhaps from emotional attachment into pure Love?

9th House:
Your travels and worldviews – Travel with ‘your house on your back’ – you prob feel at home where your Heart is and where you’re warmly welcomed!

10th House:
Your calling and purpose – is Love & Care!

11th House:
Your community – A Tribe of like-spirited Ones.

12th House:
Your oneness with ALL – the ‘Real Home’…

You’re welcome to join us!

 

Much Love for the Venusian Infusion – let’s be nurtured by and in the Water!

VENUS in GEMINI (June 8 – July 3): Midsummer Night’s De-lights

3 Jun

The GEMINI New Moon (June 3) initiates VENUS to take flight in GEMINI too, just 5 days later.

The GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – a Fairie Vibe

Leading over to the airy-fairy energy of charming VENUS in GEMINI right over Summer Solstice (June 8 – July 3) welcoming us to sail through Spring-into-Summer on a light breeze like a gorgeous butterfly, while alchemizing what we encounter.

So many really attractive things to learn and talk about!
VENUS in GEM will inspire chatting, flirting, learning languages, day trips, and the alike.

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
The shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word. 
The springy-light, ‘pollinating’ vibe of GEM comes into the foreground now, via delightful VENUS – bringing a breeze of fresh AIR into the picture of an otherwise not much airy year in the Astro~Weather
.

 

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this month, like a flower to butterflies!
So much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.
A nice time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS), and for l’art pour l’art.
And for those Springy reads under shady trees…

A few ‘chance / dance encounters’ for VENUS in GEM:

 

  • June 13
    VENUS in sextile with CHIRON in ARIES.

    Be YOU – in the Medicine of your own Being, connect with and learn from others, with joy and charm.

 

  • June 23
    VENUS opposite JUPITER retro in SAG, and in quincunx with SATURN retro, and the South Node in CAP.

    ‘Unbearable'(?) Lightness of Being. Fickle, flighty?
    Too many attractions – what does your Heart say?
    Watch your judgment, and ‘simply’ be in your own integrity.
    Plus: Traditions need Fairies… esp. round Summer Solstice.

 

  • June 24
    VENUS square NEPTUNE stat / retro n PI.

    Anything goes, in the Springy Air, in the spirit of lightness & flow. And if you fall in love be unattached to it ‘going anywhere’.

 

  • June 27
    VENUS quincunx PLUTO retro in CAP.

    Alchemy needs a Soul Container.
    And new love interests can be catalyst for your core themes…

 

  • July 3 – one day after the July 2 CANCER New MOON / TSE:
    VENUS will enter CANCER.
    Drawn to home and family, gentleness and care.
    Being magnetized to where and with whom we feel we belong.

 

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings to YOU!

VENUS into TAURUS (May 15 – June 8): Enjoying Life-in-Spring!

9 May

Dear Astro Friends on Planet Earth!

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

 

SPRING is in full bloom here in the Northern Hemisphere, as VENUS enters TAU on May 15!

She follows MERCURY who already entered TAU on May 6, helping us to slow down the super active mind (post-ARIES) and helping us get us in touch with what we really value & enjoy (here’s the Mercurial article).

Now with the SUN, MERCURY, and also VENUS in TAURUS, it’s time to settle, enjoy Life-in-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment – without attachment, since nothing is permanent…

A beautiful, sensuous energy – yummm & ahhh!

 

Birth of Venus -Painting by S. Botticelli.

VENUS in TAURUS celebrates the Goddess in all her expressions of Beauty, Life, and Love.

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets and the House TAU occupies in your chart become a magnet, while VENUS visits, until June 8.

Let VENUS show you how to slow down, cultivate pleasure and the Arts, be in Nature, and let your Earth Body be a temple of joy!

 

Primavera / Spring – Painting by Italian Renaissance Painter G. Arcimboldo

Not really stressful, mostly a calm, grounding, and powerful ‘weather’ for VENUS in ‘her own’ TAURUS abode (one of the Zodiac signs ‘she’ rules)

The entry into TAU comes as a sighhh of relief, esp after the intense square from VENUS in ARIES with SATURN retro / South Node / PLUTO retro in CAP on May 7 – 9 which could have evoked conflicts between being attracted to the New & joyful, and ‘solid reasons / experience’ (or fear) that can hold us back. Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’, did you let the Inner Sage and the Fierce Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes, and lead on with Love?

Just before ‘landing’ in TAU, on May 14, VENUS in ARIES (ruled by MARS) goes into sextile (a VENUS aspect) with MARS in GEMINI. 
Upward-onward, into a new de-lightful Dance & Alchemy!

And at the entrance to the Taurean realm, VENUS meets URANUS!


So here they are:

VENUS’s Dates with other ‘Planetary Players’ while She’s in TAURUS

 

  • MAY 15
    VENUS enters TAU, just after having been in sextile with MARS in GEMINI.
    Enjoyable landing, after a de-lightful Dance & Alchemy!

 

  • MAY 16
    VENUS freshly in TAU sextiles LILITH freshly in PI.
    Slow down, relax, and dive into what brings you Joy and one with your True You!

 

  • MAY 18 – Day of the SCO – TAU Wesak Full Moon!
    VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS.

    EnJoy freely and without attachment. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with.
    Could be the Buddha in you.

 

  • MAY 30
    VENUS in TAU in sextile with NEPTUNE (VENUS’s ‘higher octave’) in PISCES.
    (well, it’s also a very activated yet waning MOON in ARIES day)
    Relax & be at ease. Open for blessings to come your way.

 

  • MAY 31 – JUNE 2
    VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with SATURN / PLUTO both retro / South Node in CAP, and quincunx with JUPITER retro in SAG, while the waning MOON will be also in TAU, and meet VENUS on JUNE 1.
    Gratitude for all that’s been given over Time. As the World is changing certain things – and people! – are comfortingly solid. Enjoy the good & precious Times!

 

  • JUNE 8
    VENUS enters GEMINI (until July 3).
    De-Lightful Connections.

 

Where in your chart is TAURUS?


That’s where you look for / find comfort, values, and connection to the Earth.

VENUS freshly in TAURUS in your… House helps you appreciate and attract in relation to these areas of your Life:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
You in Your Local Environment

4th House:
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:

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 yourself in 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.

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

 

 

VENUS in PISCES (March 26 – Apr 20) ~ Love IS.

19 Mar

Dear Astro Friends in the Human ‘Field’, and Web of Connectedness,

VENUS in AQ (since March 1) has brought out our Love for Humanity and its Future.
Which brings people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps utopian, and innovative.

Well – massively demonstrated through the climate emergency school walkouts that took off / went ‘viral’ last Fri March 15.
Initiated by amazingly outspoken 16-year young activist Greta Thunberg (born under the mid-CAP New Moon – this year transited by SATURN, after a life-changing PLUTO impact), in her serious, moving, urgent appeal to students, and to humanity. She cuts right into the Heart of the issue in her TED Talk.
Please watch, and do what you feel called to!

 

The main theme for AQ is Freedom.
The Archetype VENUS will meet in AQ (on March 22) is LILITH – representing our ‘Wild & Free’ Nature – a double dose of Freedom in relationships, and initiated via the Feminine is ON, for the VENUSian Magnet.

With URANUS, the Ruler of AQ, since March 6 in TAURUS, the Zodiac sign ruled by VENUS, while VENUS has been in AQ  (ruled by URANUS) there’s recently a (‘double whammy’) mutual reception between them reinforcing their shared themes.
Very conducive to come together in circles of like-spirit beyond the ‘boundaries’ of convention and predictability.

 

On March 26, the VENUSian Wave rolls over into PISCES – Sail in the Waters of Love – All is ONE.

VENUS will cruise & connect in ‘her’ Zodiac energy of exaltation until Apr 20.

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it ‘unconditional love’ / All IS Love – All IS Love’.  

With MERCURY presently retro, rolling out until early April, and also in PISCES, connecting with NEPTUNE twice more on March 24 / Apr 2 this vibration can lead us mere mortals also into disillusionment, confusion, disappointment, or unrequited scenarios, linked into victim consciousness / projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal / having to take ourselves off the pedestal another puts us on.
An intertwined, entangled, enmeshed world… 

Or, we mentally-emotionally create self sabotaging victim scenarios.

All of this Mercurial mesh of PISCES can ‘inform’ VENUS’s entry into PI. Yet hopefully, conscious clearing and RE-lease has happened in the meantime (see M-r segment above) – the opportunity with M-r.

VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment, and instead all-encompassing unconditional Love… 

Ideally (VENUS in PI is such an idealist, I should say…) this goes for any attractions and relationships, not just ‘special sweethearts’.

 

Preview for VENUS’s ‘Dates’ & ‘Dances’ with other Planetary Archetypes while ‘she’s in PISCES 


MARCH 27
VENUS freshly in PI in sextile with URANUS in TAU
Openness and non-attachment – flow with what IS and be Free!

 

APRIL 1
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 / toxic ‘media showers’.

 

APRIL 9
VENUS in PI meets (her ‘higher octave’) NEPTUNE.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.

 

APRIL 12
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a commitment through connection – not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

 

APRIL 14
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

 

APRIL 15
VENUS in PI squares JUPITER freshly retro (from Apr 11 on) in SAG.
Adventure calling – go with the flow, raise your vibration (hint: Love & Gratitude focus always helps…), and attract abundance from that space.

 

APRIL 20
The Day the SUN goes out of ARIES, and enters TAURUS:

VENUS enters ARIES
Emergence of the Warrior Goddess

 

Rumi: Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you Do

VENUS in PISCES in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in PISCES and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where PISCES is in your birth (and local) chart/s – to be a magnet for attracting partners and choices that are a good match through easy flow, resonance, and connectedness.

In the meantime / as always, there’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game going on, with VENUS showing you where you’re at, with Your Self Value and Self Love.
As in: How loving and compassionate are you with yourself?
Your attractions tend to mirror it.
You’re a vibrational match for what / whom you attract – which can be literally a mirror, or ‘the missing piece’.

VENUS at the end of AQ (meeting LILITH) and in PI (meeting NEPTUNE) transiting your… House in the next weeks is a Love & Value Magnet for you in these areas of your Life:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House:
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House:
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

 

Wishing You the Gifts of Love that Connects, with VENUS in PISCES!
