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!

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.

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!

MERCURY (Apr 16 – May 6) & VENUS (Apr 20 – May 15) in ARIES: Authentic Communication & Fierce Love

17 Apr

Dear Astro~News Friends!


It’s been a while since I last wrote an article here on the blog (if you’d like to tune in on a daily basis come over to my FB page)… been so immersed (yahhh – that looong MERCURY in PISCES) in seeing clients, and trip planning.

 

How has the MERCURY in PISCES phase (Feb 10 – yesterday Apr 16, incl. retro phase March 5 – 28!) been for you?

Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, vulnerable, exposed to and entangled with (actually also a Quantum Physics concept!) what might have appeared as chaotic yet comes with intelligence of interconnectedness – of everything!
Which is ultimately true, but scary for the separate personal identity…
MERCURY retro in PISCES has called us to let go of our agenda, judgment, doubt, and resistance,  to be open to connections in natural resonance, and to let me Universe talk to us.
Lots of experiences of what appeared to be miracles and synchronicities – showing us about the connectedness beyond time and space, in the web of life appeared in my life.

Yet also acceptance of what presented itself as loss – like through the devastating fire in Notre Dame de Paris, on the very last day of MERCURY in PISCES, where miraculously nobody lost their life, and a lot of treasures have been preserved.
Always good to be aware how paradoxical things are in PISCES.
As in: loss in some way brings gifts in disguise in another way… to be revealed.


How about reviewing the recent MERCURY in PISCES phase?
How’zit been going for you, with the mental motto / mantra
Tuning & Communing. Openness & Fluidity of the Mind?

VENUS has also been in PISCES (which is ‘her’ exalted – most ‘dignified’ place) since March 26.
Love IS. Beyond form, time, and space. A connection with / in the Universe…

 

And now for a refreshing shift and lift!

MERCURY (April 16), followed by VENUS (April 20) both move(d) over the Spring Equinox ‘Emergence Point’ from PISCES to ARIES!

…where CHIRON awaits them, since:
This year (on Feb 19, 2019), CHIRON made
its long term move into ARIES (until 2026).

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.

 

So, let’s see how MERCURY & VENUS fare in the Spring Fire of ARIES, directly connected with CHIRON, and indirectly with other cosmic ‘Players’ in the Zodiac:

 

MERCURY in ARIES (April 16 – May 6) – approaching CHIRON:
Communicating Authentically

MERCURY entered ARIES yesterday, April 16 – for a 3-week journey in the fresh and fast and sign!
MERCURY invites us now to connect mentally with the Emergence of the NEW!

An enlivening, activating, quickening energy, post Piscean direct-retro-direct ‘floating’, dreaming, surfing, and navigating of the cosmic waves and currents of the collective mental sphere – an Odyssey for many of us… MERCURY has been in PISCES since Feb 10.

Phewww, that hasn’t always been ‘easy’, since so much has been washed up, and come to our mental attention – only to show: we are, and it IS all connected, always in-becoming. Not taking things so personally, being fluid, letting go & letting God, navigating on the path of least resistance…
MERCURY is traditionally considered ‘in exile’ in PISCES, opposite its ruled sign VIRGO, the skilled and analytical apprentice / helper, and square its other ruled sign GEMINI, the learner.
PISCES is rather the mystic.
How’s the mind of the mystic? Rather a no-mind.

Hope you could dance through, and BE with it, rather than trying hard to find a way through the waters of overwhelm and confusion.
And that you’ve taken time to release and retreat, let go of your agenda, to connect spiritually, and to be open to receive, see miracles and synchronicities.
Maybe these last 2 months with MERCURY in PISCES helped putting things into spiritual perspective – also to see the gifts in disguise (PISCES is paradoxical and likes to camouflage)…

And NOW for the NEW!

First Flight

First Flight, Photographer unknown

MERCURY entering ARIES is a big shift, and big news.
Why?

ARIES is where everything starts – Spring Equinox energy.
MERCURY as a function of the mind is very well placed in ARIES, since it lends itself to new ideas and inspiration (hopefully after a big release, surrender, and re-connection with what-IS in PISCES).
Here-now, we can get the ball rolling, in communication and new endeavours that might require courage – or rather: a fresh mental approach, and to simply give it a try, and put something forward. Be pro-active, take the first step, start the conversation, make a suggestion.
Kick your mind into gears, let fresh ideas arise!
Out of hibernation, into action, one baby step at a time!
But hey, with ARIES, things can go fast!
Any mental projects sitting on the back burner that you’d like to tackle? 

So, let’s welcome MERCURY in ARIES with all that it brings us, to set ourselves FREE from the ‘known’ and for the NEW!
Which can be raw and vulnerable – as MERCURY / CHIRON in early ARIES show (exact on the day of the Full Moon – April 19!).
Show up for yourself and authentically, directly and freshly, as YOU. That’s where the Medicine is.

And see what happens when you get the ball rolling for something that Spirit calls us to move towards. Things can go much faster now than you thought 🙂

Esp. since there’s also a ‘mutual reception’ (‘double whammy’) going on these days, with MERCURY the ruler of GEMINI in ARIES (ruled by MARS), and MARS the ruler of ARIES in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY)!

Which all reinforces their shared themes…
…and has the effect that things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring!
Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our loving intentions FREE!

The early-to-mid Spring atmosphere has quite a MERCURY / MARS and ARIES / GEMINI fragrance:
New (AR) ideas, contacts, interests, learning, conversations (GEM).
Stirred up / provoked / stimulated / sharp (MARS) thoughts (MERCURY).
Aggressive / assertive / argumentative / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.
Speaking UP does really come up.
What is it you think the World or your circle of influence should know about?

Channel the fierce mental-physical energy of the GEMINI / MERCURY in ARIES Warrior into fresh, bold, animated youthful curiosity, the desire to learn (esp. languages), reading & writing something that you’re passionate about.

And into pro-actively getting in touch (yep, send them a message, phone them up!) with people whom you’d like to talk to, and perhaps cook up some Alchemy together.
And so important – esp, when ‘mind attacks’ get you:

Breathing, breathing, breathing with the Energy!

 

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in ARIES: 

They’re concentrated right at the FULL MOON on Apr 19, and on May 1/2.

APRIL 19
MERCURY in AR meets CHIRON.
Communicating boldly, directly, authentically is healing.

APRIL 30
MERCURY in AR sextile MARS in GEMINI (they’re also in ‘mutual reception’ – see above)
Speak UP, and buzz around at your Heart’s desire.

MAY 1
MERCURY in AR in square with SATURN freshly retro (since Apr 29) in CAP, while the MOON also enters AR and connects with CHIRON.
Step forward and make genuine suggestions. And if not all are well received or even responded to don’t take it personally or too seriously. Just be YOU.

MAY 2
MERCURY in AR in square with the South Node and PLUTO freshly retro (since Apr 24) in CAP, before going into Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG.
Dare to think outside the ‘box’ of the consensus reality and other conditioned power structures.
Do you have controversial news to share? Speak with deep understanding and wisdom, and share the bigger picture – knowing that there’s never just ONE truth. 

MAY 6
MERCURY enters TAURUS where it meets URANUS on MAY 8.
Liberated and unattached Mind.

 

VENUS in ARIES (April 20 – May 15) – also approaching CHIRON:
Fierce Love & New Feminine Emerging

Primavera – by Italian Renaissance painter G. Arcimboldo

With VENUS entering the ARIES scene on April 20, the Heroine emerges, and Newness blossoms – like fresh shoots in Spring.

VENUS in ARIES doesn’t wait to be asked ‘to dance’. She takes initiative, makes the first steps, goes for what she values, is direct and ‘in your face’.
How does VENUS in ARIES attract?
Perhaps through her rawness and courage. What you see is what you get.
No more Piscean passive princess or mystical muse. Nor an Aphrodite who competes to be the fairest and ‘chosen one’ by Paris or any other prince who gives her the ‘golden apple’.

Time for the New Feminine to emerge!

 

Here are the Planet Dates for VENUS in ARIES:

Concentrated round Apr 23, and on May 7-9.

APRIL 23
VENUS in AR meets CHIRON.
New Healing Connections. Taking bold and innocent loving initiative is healing.

MAY 7
VENUS in ARIES square SATURN freshly retro in CAP.
A dynamic conflict between being attracted to the new, and solid reasons and experience (or fear) that can hold us back. Lead on with Love.

MAY 9
VENUS in AR in Fire Trine with JUPITER retro in SAG, and in square with the South Node and PLUTO in CAP.
Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’, let the Inner Sage and the Fierce Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes.

MAY 14
VENUS in ARIES (ruled by MARS) in sextile (a VENUS aspect) with MARS in GEMINI.
Upward-onward, into a new de-lightful Dance & Alchemy.

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!

VENUS over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Feb 3 – March 1) – Timeless & Rock-Solid Love!

2 Feb

Dear Astro Friend,

Whether you discovered this Blog just recently, or been tuning in for years… 
I just went back, and saw it started with the Equinox / LIBRA New Moon in Sept 2014 – ruled by VENUS.

This one’s about VENUS…
…who has come a long way recently!
After the VENUS-retro phase last Fall, where ‘she’ once again activated the Inner Goddess, ‘she’ crossed from transformational SCO over the ‘Phoenix Point’, and rose – as the ‘Morning Star’ in SAG on JAN 3, where she helped us attract lots of opportunities from the Heart and from Gratitude, Generosity, Self-Value, and Abundance – All attributes of LOVE.

In uplifting SAG, VENUS met big Mentor JUPITER on JAN 22 – right after the Total LUNAR Eclipse Full MOON in CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ.
What an initiation into celebrating the creative & strong Lunar Mother Goddess and to be BIG with our loving, magnetic Heart!

YES – in the Root-to-Crown / Saturn-to-Sun Chakra Journey, VENUS’s association is with the HEART Chakra.

 

Now, VENUS crosses over the Winter Solstice cusp from SAG to CAP, a.k.a. (well, I call it) the Integrity Point, and becomes / helps us become a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’, lasting, timeless, and in integrity / really works for us. Rock Solid Love.

In the meantime / simultaneously it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game (we attract matches & mirrors) for where we’re at, with our self value, self honouring, and self love.
You might want to notice what you attract into your ‘field’, and what it says about you, how you’re the perfect match for it – from the perspective of the status quo / from what you ‘sent out’.


An ‘inventory’ / assessment time, with VENUS in CAP this month:

  • What works really well, and generates balancing reciprocity (remember, VENUS rules LIBRA) and joy (yes, VENUS also rules TAURUS)?
  • Where is a new negotiation or are boundaries needed, to honour yourself and live in mutual mature respect?
  • Maybe, ‘simply’ walking away from situations that never give you the loving appreciation you’re looking for is ‘walking your talk’ and the wisest thing to do.


I.o.w., don’t work too hard (a CAP thing – CAP can turn into a Martyr).  

SATURN in CAP (for more than a year now) couldn’t agree more:
Don’t do it the hard way, i.o.w., work too hard to to ‘receive / earn Love’ 
(which could as an old conditioning certainly come up this month), rather (the reformed VENUS / SATURN duo): Do it the Heart Way!

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18 (just the day before the Full Moon) we  might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and find closure of an old pattern – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in our charts.

And then, the unfathomably deep VENUS – PLUTO, and the old and karmic VENUS – South Node connections in CAP this month, followed by a surprise / paradigm shifting and liberating VENUS square URANUS at the very end of the Love Story….

Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in CAP (Feb 3 – March 1):

Not as many alignments from VENUS in CAP to other Planets as from when she was in SAG.
Goes with CAP’s tendency to like it simple “all you need”.
I added the aspects TO VENUS from the MOON though, to give a sense of the ‘flavour’ on those days when they engage with each other…:


FEB 5 / 6
The waxing MOON in PI in sextile VENUS in CAP.
Feeling timelessly connected – a Love that never grows old.

 

FEB 8
The waxing MOON in AR square VENUS in CAP.
Impulses for the new and authentic-NOW can clash with traditionalist ‘leave it as it is’ attachments.
Reconcile Innocence with Experience.

 

FEB 11
The waxing MOON in TAU in Earth Trine with VENUS in CAP.
How about a yummy meal with grandma’s recipe?

 

FEB 16
The waxing MOON in CAN opposite VENUS in CAP.
Reconciling the need to keep it cozy, and the love to challenge yourself / get work done? Well, it’s Saturday…

 

FEB 17 – last day of the SUN in AQ, and with the MOON in LEO
VENUS in CAP sextile (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE in PI.
A good day for a charitable fundraiser, a choir concert, a benefit performance…

 

FEB 18 – Day before the Full MOON.
VENUS in CAP meets ringed SATURN.
What are you ready to commit to, from your heart, and because it’s time?
And what’s done and complete (even though you used to love it)?

 

FEB 22
The waning MOON in LI squares VENUS in CAP.
VENUS in CAP meets ‘deep dark’ PLUTO.
You might feel you’re still on the fence, yet something deeper and ‘older’ calls you.

 

FEB 24
VENUS in CAP conj. the Lunar South Node.
Love doesn’t have to be earned (karmic? conditioned? old school?). I.o.w., don’t work hard to be loved, accepted, respected, esp. by those who don’t ‘get you’, and turn to those who warmly welcome you.
In any case: Rather than ‘doing it the hard way’ let’s stay on the Heart Way. So much easier…

 

FEB 25
The waning MOON in SCO sextile VENUS in CAP.
Some processing of deep emotional layers helps with finding your loving ground.

 

MARCH 1
VENUS at the very end of CAP squares URANUS at the very end of ARIES.
VENUS enters (URANUS ruled) AQ the same day, and is met by the MOON there on MARCH 2.
Uhhh, what a conclusion of her CAP visit! Free at last! 
Where does Love set you free?
Paradigm shifts, and loving connections between human equals, beyond time, age, status are calling.

 

 

VENUS in CAPRICORN in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAP and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where CAP is in your birth (and local) chart/s to be a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’ and in integrity / really works for YOU, while ‘in the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror for where you’re at, with your self value and self love.

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Feb 18, the day before the Full Moon you might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, and / or find closure to an old and too hard way of being – in the area of life related to mid-CAP in your chart.

And after the encounter with the ‘Ringed One’, VENUS meets PLUTO and the South Node in CAP on Feb 22 – 24, connecting with deep, old, soulful Love – that may move mountains, or at least melt walls… while releasing old ways of ‘loving’.

 

VENUS – approaching SATURN / PLUTO / Lunar South Node, now transiting in your… house relating to…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

How Deep is your Love? The ‘RE-newed VENUS’ moves through SCO (now for real – Dec 2 – Jan 7)

2 Dec

Picture: Birth of Venus (detail). Painting by S. Botticelli

It’s also all about VENUS!
She’s naturally at home in fair LIBRA – where she’s been again recently.
With and after her retro journey back from SCO to LI (Oct 5 – Nov 16), she’s come a long way…

A transformation and re-emergence of the Inner Feminine and Goddess energy has occurred.
With VENUS in SCO and the retro phase we’ve faced old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around the Feminine resulting in imbalanced and abusive relationship patterns that need to be processed, so that we come as women and men to a new place of empowerment from within – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

The ‘New VENUS’ re-entered her LIBRAn domain on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with the recent VENUS retro in LIBRA, it’s been important to ‘marry ourselves’ first!

Now with the New VENUS we’re tapping more easily (you too?) into the ‘Morning Star’ quality, meaning: We’re coming from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first, before choosing to engage with others.

 

Just before VENUS entered SCO, today Dec 2, she opposed on Nov 30 from end of LIBRA once more URANUS which is now retro at the end of ARIES. For the 3rd time, since it already happened (# 1) on Sept 12 when ‘she’ had barely entered SCO, and again (# 2) on Oct 31, in retro. 
Wow, this triple VENUS – URANUS activation on the ‘Tipping Point’ (VENUS) & ‘Settling Point’ (URANUS) has stirred up a lot between the Love Goddess and the notion for Autonomy / la Libertee.

When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (New VENUS post retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others to be free.
Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.
‘Tipping’ into freedom (URANUS) AND, intimacy and depth (SCO).

 

What’s with

VENUS’s dates with other Planetary Archetypes while she’s in SCO (Dec 2 – Jan 7)?

Early this week is quite scorpionic, since the Dark MOON in SCO (before the SAG NEW MOON on DEC 6 / 7) unites with VENUS in early SCO tomorrow Mon Dec 3, and with MERCURY in late SCO on Wed Dec 5:

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy, it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

 

After the early Dec ALCHEMY with MOON – VENUS – MERCURY in SCO, there will be just 5 VENUS connections with slower moving Planets – calm and powerful ones, except for some thrill between VENUS and LILITH on the day of the Full Moon:

Dec 16
VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in CAP.
Love can be so simple.

Dec 21
VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI.
Surfing the Waves of Love.

Dec 22 – Day of the CAN – CAP Full Moon
VENUS in SCO square LILITH in AQ.
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

Dec 28
VENUS in SCO sextile PLUTO in SCO.
The Depth and Power of Love.

Jan 5
VENUS in SCO trine CHIRON in PI.
Love Heals.

 

Sending You Loving Blessings for the VENUSian Infusion in SCORPIO!

GURU PURNIMA Full Moon Blessings – with the ‘Astro Gurus’ JUPITER and SATURN

26 Jul

Dear Astro~News Reader,

indeed, there’s a lot to the upcoming AQ – LEO Full Moon / Total Lunar Eclipse ‘Blood Moon’ – with MARS, tomorrow July 27 / 28, exact at 1:20 pm PDT!

Theme is (see Eclipse post): EmBody the HEART Light, and Share it with the World!

Clearly, this Eclipse MOON and MARS get our attention, and has us release old mental / emotional and ego attachments, to come back to the Light of Consciousness, and of the Heart.

A la MERCURY freshly retrograde (since yesterday), I found again this Ram Das article A Heavy Curriculum– very apropos the AQ ‘People’ conundrum and is good guidance for MARS going retro into CAP, for a close encounter with PLUTO there:
“If somebody is a problem for you, it’s not that they should change, it’s that you need to change. If they’re a problem for themselves that’s their karma, if they’re causing you trouble that’s your problem with yourself…..”

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our lunar emotions and needs (like, for them to love and appreciate us a la LEO) have power over us, pull you into the LEO drama and out of Love?
  • What needs to deepen to change this?

A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it. Been there with family, other ‘karmic partners’, and even ‘random people’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP, not far from the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us… helping us transform old (usually fear / separation based) energies that prevent us from being in the Love and in Heart Space.

 

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition, the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

Ganesha

Ganesh, the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ is invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of CAP) is presently IN CAP (Winter Solstice 2017 – Winter Solstice 2020) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise.
Only to teach us what our inner blocks, judgments, and resistance are, and handing it over to PLUTO in CAP to help with the transformation – as things are irreversably evolving collectively.

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way, and lead by example, just like the CAP goat slowly but surely climbing up the mountain, and the CAP SUN climbing up the Ecliptic.

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the SUN is closest to the Earth and the Full MOON reflects the brightest light. 
It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.
Truth is, the SUN is not closest to the Earth in Summer but in early January, however the LEO SUN is so bright and strong and it’s the middle of Summer in the Northern hemisphere.

Because the energies of the SUN and of the MOON in reflection are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun on this day will bring growth and auspiciousness in life.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman / Universal Self, just as the MOON reflects the brightness of the SUN.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner guru / teacher / mentor / light bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’).
The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the mentor, and SATURN, the teacher.

Presently, JUPITER is in mid SCORPIO, in auspicious Water Trine with mystical NEPTUNE in its own PISCEAN domain.
Their Journey in this 4-sign apart alignment has been going on since May and until August (exact May 25, and again Aug 19).

Beneficial transformation (JUPITER in SCO) is supported by surrender and letting go, and leads to Unity (NEPTUNE in PI).
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER) it’s not really so scary (SCO) to dive in and process what’s been sticky.

 

Saturn & Earth

SATURN now in early CAP, quintessential integrity teacher, is also very supportive at this Guru Puja time, since it forms two relationships with healing and liberating planetary Archetypes:

  • A square with CHIRON in early ARIES, active all July / August (even though not exact), challenging us Earthlings to learn and integrate the lessons from our Healing Journey, and to take the Medicine of Authenticity.
  • An Earth Trine with URANUS in early TAU, also active all July / August, and VERY close in the second half of Aug (even though not exact) helps us with being grounded and ‘for real’, and bringing Spirit into Matter and EmBodyment and daily experiences. Beyond resistance and Ijudgment, Freedom arises.

 

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

VENUS in VIR is also in stabilizing Earth Trine with PLUTO retro in CAP – exact tomorrow July 27:

It’s beautiful, harmonizing, rewarding and self-loving / self-caring to do the work and practice that sustains us, keeps us sane and well, restores wholeness, and keeps things simple and grounded when stress arises.
In fact, doing ‘simple’ / ‘little’ things with love and care can help us with deep inner Soul Work in these intense times.

VIRGO is a helping / healing ‘Earth Angel’ and PLUTO reaches into the Soul – with Love.

 

Have I mentioned?
Almost all the planetary Archetypes mentioned are presently retro (6 in July, and 7 in Aug):

MERCURY, MARS, (JUPITER just came out of retro on July 10, and helps now with SCO processing OF the old), SATURN, CHIRON, URANUS (going retro on Aug 7), and PLUTO!
Excellent for inward-turning movement….

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026) so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices from our biological and Spirit ancestry have reached our modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.
The ‘trick’ is to really be consistent and apply them into our daily and most challenging situations – says SATURN in CAP.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!
May we ground and embody it.

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

4 Jul

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

JULY 9
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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