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!

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!

Group of SEVEN in CAPRICORN – into the NEW MOON (Jan 16 / 17): Integrity from the Ground UP

14 Jan

Hey, dear Astro~News Friends,

Seriously?
SEVEN Celestial Bodies now in CAPRICORN?


Yep, that’s it – as much as it gets – pretty much until 2020.
Who are the ‘Players’?
SUN (the ‘season’, until Jan 19 / 20), MOON (since today Jan 14, until just after the CAP New Moon on Jan 16 / 17), MERCURY (Jan 10 – 31), VENUS (Dec 24 – Jan 17), LILITH (Nov 8, 2017 – Aug 5, 2018), SATURN (Dec 19 / 20, 2017 – Dec 17, 2020), and PLUTO (2008 /09 – 2023 / 24)!

Looks like a Big Call for Integrity from the Ground-UP.

Rock-Solid Green Ground – Photo by Melanie Jan 14, 2018

How has your New Year started?
Maybe still with a lots of residual energy from 2017?
Maybe with clearing some of the ‘Holiday effects’?
You’re not alone.

Yes, it’s true, the SuperSuper FULL MOON in CAN / CAP aligned so beautifully with the Gregorian New Year of January 1. 
However, Full Moon energy isn’t about Newness but about ‘Fruition’ – esp. this one:
A Super build-up of the weeks round Christmas, and perhaps of the whole year 2017 – which has taken so many of us, personally, in relationships, as nations (the U.S.), countries (catastrophes!) through the ‘fire’ / ‘storm’.

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 2015.

The CANCER Full Moon belly was such a womb energy.
The waning phase over the last 2 weeks, after such a big time build-up, and with the help of the PLUTO in CAP ‘midwife’, has ‘delivered’ deep stuff through the ‘birth canal’ of transformation. It’s been quite the purge too, with PLUTO ‘in charge’. 

Since PLUTO is the key & core ‘Player’ and in CAP the longest (2008 – 2024), pointing to the deeper evolution that’s going on on Planet Earth and in us internally.
So, what’s the effect of each other planetary body passing PLUTO?

 

So let’s first do an Astro Inventory (very Capricornian anyway) about the Planetary Players and their Transformation through PLUTO.

VENUS and the SUN in CAP passed PLUTO on Jan 9, and just 15 hrs before the New Moon, on Jan 16, the CAP MOON will pass PLUTO too. 
It’s an initiation process with PLUTO in CAP.
And yep, it gets intense as / so that it changes…

While (because?) the Shadow and all sort of ‘old gunk’ gets cleared and purified (PLUTO), the Best of these Inner Archetypes in their Integrity (CAP) can come out:

SUN – Spirit, Consciousness, Vital Energy:

  • What does it takes for your energy to operate best?
  • What’s ‘counterproductive’ and (hopefully) on the way out?
  • What brings you energy?
  • What brings you closer to Essence?

VENUS – Attraction, Magnetism, Reflection in Relationships:

  • Do you attract / do they show you your Best, or your Shadow?
  • How can you bring Love, the Big Transformer, into the picture?

MOON – Sensitivity, Somatic Cycles, Emotions, Needs:

  • How do you honour (CAP) our emotions and needs?
  • How do you align with the energy of the month, nurture (MOON) and sustain (CAP) yourself?
  • It is a low energy before / round the New Moon – maybe you need lots of Rest & Regeneration…?
  • The one New Moon in CAP of the year: The world seems to resonate with, or at least emotionally reflect your CAP themes (like: need for integrity, simplicity, building a good foundation, being in tune with the Spirit of the Time / Zeitgeist, working with Nature – rather than against it….).
  • PLUTO as an ‘Initiation Chamber’ for the NEW MOON (with VENUS) helps us get aligned with what truly, simply, essentially matters, and ‘works best’.
    Call it Being as Nature, call it the The Power of Love.

MERCURY  – Mind, Thought Forms, Communication:
MERCURY in CAP will pass PLUTO on Jan 24: 

  • Mental ‘clutter’ of the CAP kind (abusive / self abusive, judgmental, fear / control mechanisms…) can come ‘up and out’ to process.
  • Hidden agenda in govern-mental structures can come out (more? oh yeah…).
  • An excellent time to practice deep inquiry into the core of your being – and live from there, one step / breath / minute at a time.

The SUN, MERCURY, and VENUS pass PLUTO yearly, the MOON monthly.
Yet, nowadays / now-a-years, there’s more going on in CAP where PLUTO sits:

LILITH – ‘Wild Woman’, actually: Being in our True ‘Wild Nature’.
LILITH is now also in CAP (until Aug 2018), and will pass PLUTO in mid-May (only every 10 years). The themes are already building up:

  • Being as-Nature is so simple. We don’t need all the ‘stuff’ (materialism, status symbols…) that’s been ‘sold’ to us by those who benefit from the consumer society and ‘ego system’.
  • Less is more is empowering. Less to buy / more to create / grow, re-purpose, up-cycle, share brings more Life and Soul into the World.
  • Rather than resisting / protesting against authorities (and thereby feeding them energy and still being the ‘adolescent’), how about letting the Inner Adult and Mature Wise One (CAP) step up and coach us into a transformation from within which can spread like wildfire?!

MARS – Warrior: Assertion. MARS is in CAP exalted (strongest sign for MARS): Strength, Stamina, Endurance, Persistence, Perseverance.
MARS will be in CAP this year too, March 17 to May 15, and again (due to retro) Aug 15 to Sept 10).
MARS will pass PLUTO (every about 2 years) on Apr 26 – while PLUTO will be stationary (going retro on Apr 22). Quite the intense transit.

  • When we need to get through things we also have energy and resources (we don’t have to ‘do it alone’) that are required, step by step.
  • An excellent time for a big project that requires perseverance, and builds character.

Eventually in 2020, SATURN and JUPITER, both in CAP (SATURN just entered, JUPITER in 2020), will pass PLUTO:
Deep & huge societal / structural / economic ‘make-over’.

The energy is building towards this, esp. with SATURN now in CAP. Being in our own mastery, authority and responsibility, having good boundaries, and not taking too much on – all this helps moving things forward to where evolution goes anyway.
Check out my SATURN into CAP blog post from Dec 16!

 

To be in natural alignment with these PLUTO Initiation Processes, you might also want to check out my ASTRO~WEATHER & MEDICINE video for Jan 8 – 16 (also featuring JUPITER / MARS in SCO).

 

I’d say the NEW YEAR energetically only begins with the CAPRICORN NEW MOON, this coming week. 
The New Moon will be exactly on Tue Jan 16 at 6:17 pm PST / Wed Jan 17 at 2:17 am GMT.
Into the NEW YEAR, from the Ground UP!

 

Here’s the CAPRICORN NEW MOON Chart:

 

The NEW MOON will be exactly on TUE JAN 16 at 6:17 pm PST / Wed Jan 17 at 2:17 am GMT.

Yep, see? 
The Group of SEVEN in CAP?!

VENUS is about to leave CAP for AQ the day after the New Moon Work Party, i.o.w., on Jan 17.
And so does the SUN, on Jan 19.

That’s the ‘Prometheus Point’ a.k.a. Community Building Point as I like to call the CAP – AQ cusp.
I.o.w., how can our energy and consciousness (SUN) go to the next level, from the CAP world of Leading from Integrity to attracting (VENUS), cooperating, and Co-creating in Community (AQ)?
A few things to keep in mind:

  • We are magnets (VENUS) for the energy we give off.
    Our habits create patterns and structures that build up (CAP).
     
  • How does life and how do relationships that you attract reflect back what you are, and engage in? 
  • How committed are you to taking responsibility (SATURN) for your relationship attractions (VENUS), and to recognizing when they are complete, and the lessons learned (SATURN)? 
  • How can you transform everything you attract into Love (PLUTO – VENUS), and see its Higher / Deeper Purpose (PLUTO in CAP)? 
  • Big Things require Cooperation (AQ) of good and competent people (CAP) who are complementary (VENUS).
    What are communities you are engaging in more now?

The main tension / stress / action inducing aspect of the CAP NEW MOON is a square from the NEW MOON and VENUS to URANUS in late ARIES.
It was already exact for the SUN and VENUS last weekend (Jan 13 / 14), and for the MOON it will be exact on the 16th.


So yeah, more shocks and awe in relation to govern-mentals, and others in responsible positions acting a wee bit, or very, cuckoo?
Could well be. Could we have imagined a year ago how much public craziness can be out and up there???
And, a more constructive question: 
Can the energy be expressed in a better way? That’s always my notion with understanding the astrological, archetypal messages in their symbolism and language….

Yay, sure, if we emancipate (URANUS) ourselves more from ‘the big boss/es’ (CAP), are innovative (UR in AR), and in self sufficient authority (CAP).
The Times they are a-changing, says PLUTO and now also SATURN in CAPRICORN.

Right NOW, the square can also be expressed by ‘giving birth’ to experimenting (UR in AR) with new, more productive, and sustaining (CAP) ways of Being and Living. Let’s be creative!

 

Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt. The Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener is related to the Planet URANUS! And VENUS and the SUN will cross the ‘Prometheus Point’ on Jan 17 / 19. So I better bring that ‘golden boy’ into the picture!

By the way, have you noticed?
We’re in a Retro Free Zone NOW!

Since URANUS went direct (technically on Jan 2, more noticeable now, as it’s coming into gear), until March 8 when JUPITER goes retro – well, let’s say, because of the stationary phase, until end of Feb!
What’s that good for (asks the CAP voice, ha-ha)?

Well, things move forward now, and can manifest more easily.
A student asked me in an Astrology course meeting last week, “Does that mean things go well now?”
Good point. And important to clarify:
Forward-motion doesn’t necessarily mean things go ‘well’. When the ‘catalyst’ planets URANUS, NEPTUNE, and PLUTO show up, things can get ‘messed up’, esp. when we act ‘against the cosmic grain’, yet it leads to much needed change.
That’s why it’s good to be aware of what these archetypal energies that the planets represent ‘want’, and how to be ‘on better terms’ with them…

For example:
URANUS in ARIES says: Just try it out, and see what happens. There are no mistakes, showing up, esp. for yourself is what matters. CAP makes sure it all stays ethical.

In the forward course of things now, whatever has been held you back, can you see the deeper dynamics of it (JUPITER in SCO)?

Can you take even just baby goat steps (CAP Planets and New Moon), and try out a new and perhaps surprising approach (URANUS in ARIES)?

 

Arunachala, Southern India (Tamil Nadu). The Sacred Mountain to Shiva the Transformer – related to the PLUTO Archetype.

Are you on Your Transformational Mountain, into (Promethean) Liberation (URANUS in ARIES) from what’s weighing and wearing you down (too much CAPRICORN, experienced as burdensome and depressing)?
And into Liberation, to be the Authentic YOU?!

 

Much Love for and with it ALL!

VENUS enters CAP (Dec 24/25 – Jan 17): A Love That Lasts…

24 Dec

Love and Gratitude for the ground we stand on! 

Over Christmas, it’s VENUS’s term, to settle from her Sagittarian running around and frolic….

To cross the ‘Integrity Point’, join the CAP crew of the SUN, SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO, and turn rock-steady. 

Time to appreciate and enjoy the wintry calm, traditions of old, and lasting relationships with family and friends.

Quality over quantity, says VENUS in CAP.
Simple pleasures and timeless beauty attract.

And relationships benefit from / require maturity.

 

Also a good time to activate business and career relevant relationships, to provide and build something significant that the world and this time needs.

CAP is happiest when on purpose…!

 

 

Mountain Joy in Switzerland

VENUS will make a few contacts with the CAP Planets during ‘her’ residence there:

DEC 25: VENUS meets SATURN.
Christmas engagement anyone? Rock-solid commitments favoured – when in Integrity.

VENUS, freshly in CAP, passes good ole SATURN yesterday – yep, Christmas Day.
The Ringed One…
In a Ring of out-of-Integrity / outgrown sugar coated obligations, expectations, obli-gifts, you name it….?
More noticeable this year, as SATURN just entered CAP to give us (3 years of) reality checks that might appear harsh and cold but also show where ‘been there / done that land’ is, and where we stand.
In Family Constellation practice, what comes up sometimes as a Medicine when we’ve burdened ourselves with too much of other people’s (esp. family and even unknown ancestors) stuff that we still carry:
We only take the Love, and give everything else back with Love – to them, to the Universe, to where it can be recycled back into… L.O.V.E.

So, here we go, VENUS – SATURN Holy Days. 
Only Love is Real.
And sometimes we have to say NO to what’s dressed-up as Love, to connect with, and commit to (yay, Ringed One!) LOVE that IS. 

DEC 29: VENUS meets LILITH.
So yeah, relationships gotta be in intrinsic Integrity (not based on ‘shoulds’ or obligations). LILITH sanctions the simple & good, and gets you out of everything else.

JAN 8: VENUS meets the SUN.
Lasting quality rocks. Go for best.

JAN 9: SUN / VENUS / PLUTO Union in CAP.
Whoa – serious deep Soul Union material.
What’s LOVE in its core?

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.

Inner Sacred Feminine in the Temple of Wholeness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!
