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

2 Dec

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!

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.

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

Encore: * REgeneration of the Inner Love Goddess – VENUS Retro 2018 (Oct 5 – Nov 16) and ‘New VENUS’ on Oct 26.

25 Oct

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

All about VENUS!
‘She’s naturally at home’ in fair LIBRA – where the last NEW MOON on Oct 8 was, and in enjoyable TAURUS where the FULL MOON on Oct 24 was.

But at this point, VENUS has been in deep, dark  in SCORPIO (her ‘exile’) for a while…

VENUS crossed the ‘Alchemy Point’ / ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on the Day of the VIRGO NEW MOON (Sept 9).
She started her transformational retro & underworld journey on Fri (VENUS-Day!) Oct 5 when the U.S. Supreme Court nomination and sexual assault allegations thrill culminated.

With VENUS retro until FRI (yes: VENUS-Day) Nov 16, a transformation of the Inner Feminine occurs as we’re facing old painful / uncomfortable / repressed / in-the-closet / shamed / sexually related themes around attractions that need to be processed.
So that we come to a new place of natural empowerment – from which we naturally engage in and cultivate right relationship.

Noticing any of this?
If it appears to be hidden check out areas of life relating to SCO in your chart (Planets, Houses…) for clues.

VENUS (as always) started ‘her’ retro journey from the position of being an ‘Evening Star’ (setting after the SUN), which has a LIBRA ‘undertone’, showing us how we can make our life and self-worth a lot about other people (comparing ourselves, etc…)

The first half of VENUS retro processes this ‘Evening Star’ quality of VENUS with her LIBRA undertone – which is very other-oriented – perhaps to a fault – which VENUS retro brings to awareness to re-align.

The other day, very synchronistically, I came across messages for transforming VENUS ‘Evening Star’ retro in SCO (pre-New VENUS):
Get involved if you’re truly, deeply in love and passionate about something.
Not just ‘for the money’, or because others do it / following a trend. Don’t just get involved into someone else’s passion, or because you think people will like you more if you’re associated with…this. 
If you do it’s likely not sustainable since you don’t have your own authentic, intrinsic motivation.

And, I add to this: You can’t fake Magic.
This is to a powerful turning point in all our attractions from true inner depth, with VENUS Retro this Fall! 

 

Golden Venus

Good news:
The FULL MOON in TAU with URANUS on Oct 24 ‘delivered’ a ‘New VENUS’ to be
 planted in our consciousness on FRI (yes! VENUS-Day) Oct 26 (every 1 1/2 years) when VENUS retro and the SUN unite.

After the ‘New VENUS’ we’re tapping more easily into the ‘Morning Star’ quality with TAU undertone, meaning: we come from our own solid Self Love and Self Value first before choosing to engage!
What an alignment with the shifting and liberating Full MOON in TAU with URANUS!

 

The ‘New VENUS’ already re-enters her domain of LIBRA on Oct 31 – supporting new conscious choices that are a ‘better match’, more balanced, fair, and harmonious.
And hey, with VENUS retro in LIBRA, marry yourself first!
Inner Love Goddess re-emerging.

Here’s the first VENUS Retro blog post for an in-depth read.

 

Many Blessings for the shift into the ‘New VENUS’!

TAURUS – SCORPIO Full Moon with URANUS and Grand Fixed Cross: Wake UP, Earthlings, and EmBody the Change!

23 Oct

Dear Astro~News Friend,

Mystical Moon – Photo by Melanie 2017


Are you feeling it?!

What an intense and tension bearing FULL MOON – wound into a Fixed Grand Cross, and 6 celestial bodies plus the Lunar Nodes in fixed Zodiac signs.
Don’t get stuck in power issues.

Process on a deeper level (SCO) and bring Freedom to Fruition (URANUS / Full MOON in TAU)! 

 

If you’ve got Planets, SUN / MOON / AC / Nodes in early fixed signs TAU – LEO – SCO – AQ this one’s for you!
When in doubt ask me – your personal chart would reveal.

And if your BIRTHDAY is round the 24th of January, April, July, or Oct your SoUlar Self / Creativity / Spirit / Consciousness can be illuminated by this FULL MOON.

  • Early TAU SUN (born end of April) – the FULL MOON with URANUS activates your Life:
    Be fresh and free and awake in the Self (and with one another)!
  • Early LEO SUN (born end of July) – activated by the North Node, and the FULL MOON axis squaring your SUN:
    Going deep into your ‘not so sunny’ stuff lets you be even more creative and radiant. Experiment with new wo/manifestations!
  • Early SCO SUN (born end of October) – so the FULL MOON (with VENUS retro in SCO) falls close to if not on your Birthday!
    Find Treasures in the Dark, and EmBody your Depth and your Freedom.
  • Early AQ SUN (born end of January) – activated by the South Node and LILITH, and the FULL MOON axis squaring your SUN:
    Love starts with Loving YourSelf, while…. We’re All Stars in the Constellation of L*O*V*E*

 

Luna has been already appearing full for a few nights, and having her effects on Terra and on us Terrestrials!
…showing up through Earth thrills:
Cat 5 hurricane Willa approaching the SW coast of Mexico as I’m writing, and 2 days ago, off-coast Vancouver Island was shaken up by an underwater 6.8 quake.
Earth changes tend to get triggered through Full Moons and Eclipses.

So much energy has been built up, in ‘conflicting’ directions ‘bumping up against each other’ that needs to be released , and even more so, grounded and centred!

 

Storm on the Horizon… – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2012

 

In my sense, this Fixed Grand Cross FULL MOON with URANUS is one of the 3 most intense FULL MOONs of the year, besides the Total Lunar Eclipses on Jan 31 (in LEO – AQ) and on July 27 (in AQ – LEO).
It’s also in square with the Nodal axis where the Eclipses ‘dance’, as you can see in the chart below.

That all sounds quite dramatic, and you might want to crawl right under the comfy sheets – or ride the stormy waves of change if you’re more of a Scorpionic adventurer.

Before you go hide and cover, or go all-out check in:
What’s your intuitive sense (MOON / URANUS) of the Full Moon?
What does your body sense tell you?

If you’d like to gain perspective and take inspiration from these Astro~News take it in, perhaps in company of a pot of warm comfy tea / stimulating full-bodied coffee, take time to digest and process (TAU – SCO), and be open for intuitive flashes of insight (URANUS).
These tension ridden days, take time to ground and be fully and fluidly in your body – for me that would be via Yoga, meditation, and walks in Nature…

 

Here’s the chart of the TAU – SCO FULL MOON

… which will be exact at 9:45 am PDT tomorrow Oct 24,
just 74 min after the alignment of the MOON with URANUS at 8:31 am!

 

 

What’s so unique and intense about this FULL MOON, and what’s her invitation?

  • It catalyzes and more fully reveals the energy of URANUS which is this year freshly in early TAU, presently retro and super cuspy (0°31′), on its way to re-enter AR on Nov 6 (day before the SCO New Moon!) over the Winter.
    A shaker-up & waker-up!

URANUS entered TAU for the first time on May 15 – the DAY of the TAU New Moon! Here’s again the May Astro~News blog post for that shift URANUS in TAU – Wake UP, Earthlings! – still relevant of course.
Just 12 days before, on May 3, Mt Kilauea erupted.

The TAU – SCO – URANUS themes are played out in several ways this year – establishing / preserving – transforming – suddenly shifting….

Often, when a slow moving Planet enters a new Zodiac sign synchronisitic World events happen that get our attention showing the themes, and maybe even giving us a preview of the phase.

The Awakener Archetype URANUS comes with wake-up calls that can be shocking, unnerving, freeing and enlightening, or all of the above, yet always unexpected.

On the DAY when URANUS entered ARIES, March 11, 2011, a sea quake (URANUS the last hours in PISCES) off the coast of Japan triggered a massive Tsunami, followed by the nuclear reactor at Fukushima melt-down once URANUS was in ARIES, releasing contaminating Uranium and Plutonium.
Just learned (intuitively googled) that Fukushima in Japanese is 福島 and it means. 福 (Fuku) = fortune, luck; 島 = island.
PLUTO is also the Greek ‘underworld’ god of ‘hidden wealth’.
Chilling to realize how this ‘hidden wealth and potential’ via Plutonium and Uranium turned destructive… and the symbolism of if for the environmental damage escalating and accelerating in the URANUS in ARIES years after Fukushima:

Humanity with its inventiveness (URANUS) has tried to ‘overpower’ (PLUTO) Nature, excessively extracted her resources and destroyed precious life forms. This has come to a point of serious threat for self destruction of human life as well.
URANUS in AR and PLUTO in CAP went between 2012 and 2015 into seven(!) squares with one another – that was THE key alignment of URANUS’s activation of ARIES (2011 – 2018), triggering wake-up calls and awakening on so many levels, yet also the pressure (square to PLUTO) to transform from that deep inner place of true ‘wealth’ and ‘power’, and in fundamental ways of respecting the Earth, her natural resources, and natural cycles and laws. And a cosmic ‘timer’ (CAP) and ‘alarm clock’ (URANUS).

In the wake of the UN deadline for massive socio-structural changes until 2030 to avert a climate catastrophe we as humanity hopefully realize how we need to change in a big and uncomfortable way (JUPITER in SCO) our habits and comfort zones, consumer behaviour, the role of money, and ‘business as usual’ (all Taurean phenomena).
In 2029, JUPITER will be again (as this year) in SCO, by then in square with PLUTO (in AQ from 2023 on) where Death or Transformation / Evolution (PLUTO) of Humanity and Living Systems (AQ) are at stake.
Astro energetically, we already see massive transformational notions and effects in 2020, with the alignment of SATURN / PLUTO / JUPITER in late CAP on the cusp to AQ – communities and Humanity need to come together in a responsible way to (be able) to build for the future.

May the wake-up calls really bring us closer together – to work together (AQ), bringing to the table the best we each can contribute (CAP)!

 

  • The FULL MOON is ‘hooked’ into a tight / exact Grand Fixed Cross which holds a lot of tension and pressure that’s primed for release yet also calls us to be centred in the stillness of the ‘hub’.

Let’s first see and acknowledge which archetypal ‘players’ its four corners are ‘occupied’ by (see chart):

* MOON / URANUS retro on the ‘Settling Point’ from AR to TAU – their alignment is just 1 hr before the FM – Wake UP, Earthlings!
Mother Earth shakes us up, evoking a renaissance of Earth Consciousness.
And we’re invited (if not pushed) into a new freedom to fully ‘birth’ and embody our liberated Spirit, break old habits, and feed what nurtures us.
No more need to be ‘shackled’ by ‘consensus reality’, security attached stagnation, and resistances that we find in ourselves and reflected in our tribal environment.
What matters is to know you’re free, and to embody that!
How?
Well, through change that probably feels uncomfortable if not painful (SCO) at first, but we get the hang of it, and it’s actually for the better (JUPITER). Like a detox…

 

What’s new and liberating in your world these days?
Experimentation – no expectation can be a liberating motto.
To break / change habits takes about 30 – 40 days, so be patient and consistent (TAU qualities).

 

Beauty in the Fall… – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2018



* The FULL MOON in TAU (ruled by VENUS!) ‘delivers’ the ‘New VENUS’!
= the SUN / VENUS retro on the ‘Alchemy / Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCO
.
Their alignment (and turning point in the VENUS retro phase!) will be on Oct 26.

See my VENUS Retro post Regeneration of the Inner Love Goddess
Choosing to Fall in Love with Life – rooted in the Self.

I.o.w., when we come from Love (VENUS) that’s rooted in the Heart, Spirit, and Self (the SUN) we don’t need to compare ourselves with others (VENUS) and feel bad (SCO), or get involved in their passionate endeavour or energy (SCO) to feel more important and loved (VENUS), ‘do things for the money’ (VENUS), etc.
Instead, we can calmly sit in True Love that radiates and ‘magically’ attracts (VENUS / SUN in SCO).

Speaking of VENUS’s Scorpionic deep dive – more of that type going on these days:
MERCURY will catch up with JUPITER end of SCO on Oct 29 (just after the ‘New VENUS’):
Coming from Love, come out with your deep truth, share it in a journal, with a close friend, bring it to the open, and see things in a different light that helps with moving forward in a new direction!

Expect lots of big revealing news (JUPITER / MERCURY in SCO) end of this month.
MERCURY will go into SAG on Oct 30 – the Truth has to be spoken, and sets us free.

Followed by THE big Astro happening of Nov:
JUPITER crosses also over the SCO – SAG ‘Phoenix Point’, to enter its ruled sign SAGITTARIUS on Nov 8 (until Dec  2, 2019)!
Supporting Truth, Trust, and a new Vision from the Heart!
Yes, SAG is a Fire sign that’s at its best when we come from the Heart, from an attitude of gratitude which helps with seeing possibilities and inspiring solutions.
If you feel inspired and called from your Heart, come join (in person or online) our JUPITER into SAG Astro Activation Parlour on Nov 7!

More about JUPITER in SAG in the Astro~News for the SCO New MOON on Nov 7 – the eve of JUPITER’s move UP!


* Lunar North Node on the ‘Creativity Point’ from LEO to CAN 
(Nodes go backwards in the Zodiac)

When we’re genuinely loving, caring, creative, and feeling seen and loved we generate good energy and feel a sense of belonging.
Part of the super cuspy Astro Weather:
The Nodal Axis is also on two cusps now, and will shift signs – into CAP (SN) – CAN (NN) on Nov 16 – another big day, with also VENUS going out of retro while MERCURY goes retro – whoa…!

More about these shifts on this channel, closer to the date.

* Lunar South Node on the ‘Community Building Point’ from AQ (ruled by URANUS!) to CAP.
Rather than ‘being left out in the cold’ and ‘watching other people’s show’ (a temptation in our omni techno world yet is a low vibration of CAP / AQ) let’s bring our warm, loving, heartfelt, childlike, ‘summery’ creative and playful CAN / LEO energy
 into the world of ‘serious work’ and collaborative purpose. When we work in a team and in society what matters is feeling included and welcome – we all benefit from that too.

LILITH and MARS are presently also in AQ.
For MARS, this has been a long phase,
since… also the TAU New Moon on May 15(!) – until Nov 15, with the retro motion in the Summer on the CAP – AQ cusp, helping us release old and re-activated stored-up anger and frustration in groups and society, and re-calibrate the inner / outer Masculine and our assertion in integrity, for the sake of better cooperation (CAP / AQ).

MARS has passed LILITH early Oct:
Giving us a kick to show up and just go for what we’re instinctively called to, with our ‘wild and free’ natural Self.

 

 

  • In this FULL MOON Fixed Grand Cross where energy can get stuck in / attached to
    * Habits and Comfort (TAU) 
    * Ego (LEO)
    * Painful Emotions (SCO)
    * Ideologies (AQ)

… we’re called to Wake UP / Shift and Change the habitual / established Status Quo (MOON / URANUS in early TAU), come from deep Self Love (SUN / VENUS in early SCO), and bring our creative, loving and embracing Self (NN in early LEO) into Groups, Community, and Humanity (SN in early AQ).

 

  • Check out how many celestial bodies / sensitive points are in FIXED signs now, altogether:
    MOON / URANUS retro in TAU; NN in LEO; SUN / VENUS retro, and MERCURY / JUPITER in SCO, and SN, LILITH, and MARS in AQ!

That’s a huge concentration.
If you feel trapped and fighting power games no wonder.

The point is to stop, come from conscious awareness of what’s going on on a deeper level, and find our place in the hub of the wheel / eye of the storm where all is ‘quiet’, sit with that, and be in our Power Centre.

 

With Lunar & Liberating Love,
Melanie

VENUS Retro 2018 (Oct 5 – Nov 16): REgeneration of the Inner Love Goddess (starts with Falling in Love with Ourselves….)

23 Sep

The VENUS Retro ‘Season’ is almost ON!

Birth of Venus, by S. Botticelli

Dear Friends in Cosmic Consciousness,

welcoming the VENUSian Turning Point into ‘her’ internal retro mode I’ve been reflecting on the patterns and experiences – the ‘story line’ of the previous VENUS Retro phases (every 18 months). There’s an inner thread between VENUS Retro phases.

I often re-connected with significant others, and found the deeper truth of the relationship which could lead to transformation and often release… 

If you’d like to tune in too, and find clues, here’s the line-up of the last three VENUS Retro phases, since the BIG one – the ‘VENUS Passage’ over the Sun disk in early June 2012 – remember?
May 15 – June 27, 2012 – in GEMINI
Dec 21, 2013 – Jan 31, 2014 – in CAP
July 25 – Sept 6, 2015 – in LEO
March 4 – Apr 15, 2017 – in AR / PI

VENUS presently the ‘Evening Star’, will go ‘into the Underworld’ to regenerate herself as the Morning Star!
VENUS is now stationary in early SCORPIO, and will go retro (inward-backward) on Oct 5 (until Nov 16).
This cosmic process will help us shift from being so Other-oriented (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to find our Intrinsic Value, fall in Love with ourselves, and naturally attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!

The VENUS retro phase happens only every 18 months (last one March 4 – Apr 15, 2017 as mentioned – perhaps you remember VENUS retro themes you were experiencing and learning then and which are rippling over again?).
With VENUS ‘cruising’ now in early SCO, close to JUPITER, the inner and outer Feminine is deep, intimate, powerful, and magnetic – which IS attractive – maybe a bit scary too (for those afraid of her power)…
A lot has been processed in many ways, since JUPITER entered SCO on 10/10/2017 – the same week as the Me Too movement started. 
No more closet space for hidden agenda / behind closed doors abuse of the Feminine – and of any Being for that matter….!


With VENUS’s present slowing down period (‘she”s already in pre-retro stationary ‘storm’) you might have noticed ‘early VENUS retro symptoms’ and premonitions about the effect of VENUS retro:

  • Have loved ones and lovers ‘from the past’ / from ‘past’ relationships (even from different time lines) RE-connected with you, or ‘just’ shown up in your life? 
  • Have you been RE-minded of, and attracted to RE-connect with them?
  • Are you drawn to connect in good synergy and intimacy (LI / SCO), but so many things are ‘in the way’ / old agenda needs to be cleared first????
  • Are you called to be more deeply involved with Life and All Our Relations, from within? 

 

The VENUS retrograde phase will be a checking in on, and evaluating of our patterns in relationships:
How, whom, and what we desire and attract, and what’s really a good harmonious match for us.

Even more so, it’s a RE-newal of Self-Love, and Self-Value, and a RE-alignment of whom, what, and how we bring into our lives, with Consciousness (the SUN). 

VENUS is pre-, during, and post-retro for a long time in SCORPIO (started Sept 9, and goes until Oct 31, then again post-retro Dec 2 – Jan 8).

  • What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
  • What’a your sense are your soul agreements?
  • What’s your intimacy based on?

With JUPITER holding space in SCO nearby: 
What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now?
Perhaps to outgrow it – or you already have, and it just needs to be ‘aired’?

VENUS retro will cross from SCO back into LIBRA on Oct 31, before ‘she’ dives fully back into SCO on Dec 2 – only two weeks after coming out of retro. 
Finding Self Love, in Peace, Harmony, and Balance.

 

When VENUS has reached the half-way point of ‘her’ retro journey on Oct 26, ‘she’ meets the SUN – a ‘NEW VENUS’ is born!
A turning point where we have come back to ourselves, let Spirit  (the SUN) lead, and attractions that are aligned with Consciousness can follow.

 

Esp. if you have SUN, MOON, PLANETS, or AC in late LIBRA / early SCO this VENUS retro phase will be a gift for you, to transform deep old patterns about attraction and relationship – in relation to those Planetary Archetypes.
And to fall in love with yourself, with life, with consciousness, while naturally magnetizing from that place.

And for all of us:
The area of life related to where late LIBRA / early SCO is in our charts (esp. house wise) we are invited to go inwards, release & regenerate, and from there attract in a new way.

Come join us in a small group of up to 6 women and men – where we explore these themes while going directly into participants’ charts and life experiences,
at the

As mentioned, the purpose of VENUS retro is to transform from the recent Evening Star quality (LIBRA undertone) into a Morning Star (TAURUS undertone) / Goddess of the Dawn.
In the retro phase it’s time to release esp. co-dependency.

We tend to project denied parts of ourselves onto another, and re-attract them because of the charge and ‘contract’ we hold.
Let’s direct the freed up energy into so(u)lar conscious self radiating Being and Loving, full of natural self worth (‘Morning Star’ TAURUS undertone), like Nature in Spring, or a pure lotus flower in the light while deeply rooted in the Scorpionic depth.

Maybe this excerpt from an interview that movie star Gwyneth Paltrow did with Gay and Katie Hendricks speaks to you – it found me again, under VENUS pre-retro:

What is a conscious relationship?

  • “In a co-dependent relationship, you have two halves trying to become whole: one person who doesn’t love him/herself trying to get the other person to love them anyway.” 
  • “A conscious relationship is one in which people are awake to themselves, their feelings and thoughts, and are open to the flow of love and attention with one another.
  • “In a conscious relationship, you can be completely yourself AND completely connected.

What are some examples of co-dependent vs. conscious relationship?

  •  Co-dependent: “You have difficulty allowing others to feel their feelings. If someone feels bad, you rush in to make it better because you think it’s your fault. You worry about other people’s feelings frequently.”
    Conscious: “You are able to be present and attentive when people around you are feeling their emotions. You encourage them to feel their emotions deeply and to express those feelings openly.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In spite of your ‘best efforts’ people around you do not change their bad habits.”
    Conscious: “You commit to stop enabling the bad habits of people you care about. Instead, you take effective actions that give people the opportunity to take full responsibility for their own well-being.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You have secrets. There are things you have done or not done that you are hiding from another person.”
    Conscious: “You have no secrets. You reveal rather than conceal. You understand that hiding your feelings causes you to withdraw from intimacy, and you take every opportunity to speak honestly about your feelings.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You do not let yourself feel the full range of your feelings. You are out of touch with one or more core emotions such as anger, fear, or sadness. Anger is a particular problem for you. You find it hard to admit that you’re angry, and you have trouble expressing it to other people.”
    Conscious: “You recognize the body sensations that let you know you’re angry. You communicate about all your feelings in a straightforward, easy manner that others can understand.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You criticize or get criticized frequently. You have a strong, nagging internal critic that keeps you feeling bad even in moments when you could be feeling good.”
    Conscious: “You experience very little criticism, either from outside or within. Your internal critic is in full retirement, having been replaced by a strong inner appreciator.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You try to control other people, to get them to feel and be a certain way, and you spend a lot of energy being controlled or avoiding being controlled by others.”
    Conscious: “You are aware of those things you can control and the things you cannot control. You put your attention on things you can change, such as expressing what’s true and keeping your agreements, and you make choices that support those areas you can actually influence.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In arguments, much energy is spent in trying to find out whose fault it is. Both people struggle to prove that they are right, or to prove the other wrong.
    Conscious: “When difficulties or differences arise, you shift into wonder and healthy responsibility, asking, “Hmmm…, how am I creating this, and what could I do differently to create a better result?”

 

  • Co-dependent: “In arguments, you find yourself pleading victim or agreeing that you were at fault.”
    Conscious: “You take full responsibility for the events that happen in your relationship. You invite the other person to take full responsibility, too. You understand that a relationship can only take place between two people who are equals, both taking full responsibility for events that occur; anything else is an entanglement, not a relationship.”

 

  • Co-dependent: “You frequently agree to do things you do not want to do, feel bad about it, but say nothing.”
    Conscious: “You consider every agreement before making it, and listen closely to your body wisdom as well as your mind as to whether you should make it. You keep the agreements you make and know how to change an agreement that isn’t working.”

 

So much Love for the Journey with VENUS Retro!

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.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

VENUS Retro 2017: Discovering the RElationship ‘Story Line’ of Co-dependences, and REleasing it with Love!

4 Mar
Dear Friends in Cosmic Consciousness,
as I’ve been welcoming the VENUSian Turning Point into ‘her’ internal retro mode (the shift was at 1:09 am!), I’ve been reflecting on the patterns and experiences – the ‘story line’ of the previous VENUS Retro phases (every 18 months). There is an inner thread between VENUS Retro phases.

I often re-connected with significant others, and found the deeper truth of the relationship which could lead to transformation and often release…

 

If you’d like to tune in too, and find clues, here’s the line-up of the last three VENUS Retro phases, since the BIG one – the ‘VENUS Passage’ over the Sun disk in early June 2012 – remember?
 
May 15 – June 27, 2012
Dec 21, 2013 – Jan 31, 2014
July 25 – Sept 6, 2015

 

Of course, you are also welcome to explore old REcurring patterns that may REsurface now, to be REleased with LOVE, in a private Astrology session.
Send me a message (to licht@islandnet.com), and we customize one that fits you!
 
 
Also yesterday evening, I came across a substantial, clear piece that is very apropos the Venus Passage we are just entering.
Hope it will be affirming, helpful, and inspiring to you. And YES, it takes practice…
 
The purpose of VENUS retro is to transform from the recent Evening Star quality (Libra undertone) into a Morning Star (Taurus undertone) / Goddess of the Dawn:
 
In the retro phase it’s time to release esp. co-dependency (which also the Solar Eclipse in PISCES, surrounded by several PI planets confirm, and where VENUS goes back to).
We tend to project denied parts of ourselves onto another, and re-attract them because of the charge and ‘contract’ we hold.
Let’s direct the freed up energy into so(u)lar conscious self radiating (VENUS infused by the SUN) Being and Loving, full of natural self worth (‘Morning Star’ Taurus undertone), like nature in Spring, or a pure lotus flower in the light.
 

SO much is opening and emerging now, and we can choose to walk in that direction…

Here is that piece I mentioned above. It is apparently an excerpt from an interview that movie star Gwyneth Paltrow did with Gay and Katie Hendricks for her popular blog about this topic.
 
What is a conscious relationship?
 
  • “A conscious relationship is one in which people are awake to themselves, their feelings and thoughts, and are open to the flow of love and attention with one another.
  • “In a conscious relationship, you can be completely yourself AND completely connected.
  • “In a co-dependent relationship, you have two halves trying to become whole: one person who doesn’t love him/herself trying to get the other person to love them anyway.”

Keep an eye on the area in your chart in late PI / early AR (VENUS / CHIRON ‘resi-dance’ these days / months),  esp. if you have planets, Sun, Moon, AC, MC there.

These sides in you are called to spontaneity in the moment (ARIES), and to connect from love (PISCES).
Maybe for the first time in a long time???


How these energies are affecting you, and how you can be best aligned with them can be seen by consulting with your personal birth chart, based on your birth date, time, and place, its unique pattern, and, foremost:

It depends on how YOU live from the energies of your chart (that’s why I find it’s so important to work with clients in person, and I refuse doing written reports).

If you feel a resonance, and hear the call to work with me come for a 1-on-1 consult session (incl. an initial 1 hr orientation session), or let’s co-design a sequence of sessions that would serve you best: Intentionality and commitment have by nature deeper effects. 

We can go into the heart of the matter, and draw out what’s possible to help you change from within.

VENUS Retro 2017 (March 4 – April 15): Re-Emergence of the INNER Goddess <3

28 Feb

The VENUS Retro ‘Season’ is ON!

 

Birth of Venus, by Italian Renaissance painter S. Botticelli

 

VENUS presently the ‘Evening Star’, will go ‘into the underworld’ to regenerate herself as the Morning Star!

VENUS is now stationary in mid ARIES, and will go retro (inwards-backwards) on March 4 (until Apr 15).
This cosmic process will help us shift from being so Other-oriented (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to finding our Intrinsic Value, and naturally attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!

The VENUS retro phase happens only every 18 months (last one July 25 – Sept 6, 2015).

With VENUS ‘cruising’ now in mid ARIES, close to MARS / URANUS, the inner and outer Feminine is raw, authentic, pro-active, and fresh in every moment – which IS attractive.

With VENUS’s slowing down period now (in pre-retro stationary ‘storm’ now) you might have noticed ‘early Venus retro symptoms’ and premonitions about the effect of Venus retro:

  • Have loved ones and lovers ‘from the past from ‘past’ relationships (even from different time lines) RE-connected with you, or ‘just’ shown up in your life?
  • Have you been RE-minded of, and attracted to RE-connect with them?
  • Are you drawn to be more connected with new people, but so many things are ‘in the way of making the first step’????
  • Are you wondering, what makes me unconditionally happy from within?

The VENUS retrograde phase will be a checking in on our patterns in relationships: How, whom, and what we desire and attract.

And, even more so, it’s a RE-newal of Self-Love, and Self-Value, and a RE-alignment of whom, what, and how we bring into our lives, with Consciousness (the SUN).

 

I wish I could show you, When you are lonely or in darkness, The astonishing light of your own being ~ Hafiz

VENUS retro will cross from ARIES back into ‘her’ exalted sphere of PISCES on Apr 2, and re-emerge from PI to AR on Apr 28 – 2 weeks after coming out of retro.

What’s the Truth about the Love of the Self?
Finding Self Love in the Universal, Cosmic Self…

While turning around in late PI, VENUS will almost meet CHIRON (both ‘swim’ very close to each other almost the whole month of Apr) – Finding our Medicine to Heal the ‘Love Wound’ ♥ ♥
Do you have a sense where something can open to surrender for you?

Esp. if you have Planets, Sun, Moon, or AC in late PI / early-mid AR the VENUS retro phase will be a gift for you, to let go of old patterns.

And for all of us, for the area of life related to where late PI / early-mid AR is in our charts (esp. house wise) we are invited to go inwards, release the old other-orientation, find true inner lovingness,and from there attract in a new way.

 

Come join us in a small (up to 6 women and men – exploring directly with participants’ charts)

ASTRO~PARLOUR for your journey with
* VENUS RETRO 2017 in AR – PI (March 4 – Apr 15):

* MARS in ARIES since Jan 27 (until March 9), and VENUS enters ARIES Feb 3 (until Apr 2, and Apr 28 – June 6): Let Your SuperHero/ine Activist / Shakti-vist Emerge!

3 Feb

Have you seen them dancing in the evening sky?

VENUS, super bright ‘Evening Star’ these weeks after sunset, and recently closer to MARS (orange dot to ‘her left’ in the Ecliptic) was even joined by the MOON on Monday – Wednesday – so beautiful to behold, and a super charge to download. 

The primal and initiating energy of ARIES gets now activated: First through MARS – since Jan 27 – came with the AQ New Moon, followed by VENUS today Feb 3 – woohoo!

As you see from the dates above, MARS is ‘only’ 6 weeks in ARIES, while VENUS will be in ARIES for much longer, because – you guessed it – ‘She’ will go retrograde this Spring (March 4 – Apr 15) mostly in ARIES, and back to the ARIES / PISCES cusp – RE-Emergence of the Feminine, literally.

Will be interesting what shows up in this, in combination with the Chinese Yin Phoenix Fire!

More about VENUS retro closer to the retro date.
But let’s keep in mind that the pre-retro shadow has started last weekend, so close to the Women’s March. More activism shakti-vism to follow, you bet!

MARS got the ball rolling, initiating and igniting the fiery Phoenix Spirit. We rise again, indeed!

 

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

 

What could that mean?

  • New vitality and Spring-like energy is emerging and arising – it all starts HERE! If you’ve been sick and weakened, you get a boost of energy, esp. if you have Planets, Sun, Moon, Nodes, AC in ARIES. MARS is natural in its ARIES domain, as a survivor, an ‘energizer bunny’, and ‘he’ comes to life when battling the elements.
  • People can get quite angry and upset – no more PISCEAN tolerating – time for action – find healthy outlets. Can be a fired-up and confrontational period, with MARS in ARIES.
  • Our inner SuperHero energies want to be launched. Let’s do something pro-active and productive with them! What matters is to get going. If it ‘doesn’t work out, not to worry. ARIES gets up and starts again, in a new way. Like a toddler learning to walk, with natural instinct and trust.

The week of Feb 22 – March 2 will be quite fired-up, as the JUPITER retro opposition with URANUS (exact on March 2) will have a huge concentration in ARIES: VENUS, the MOON, URANUS, ERIS, and MARS.
That’s quite an explosive, erratic energy. We better channel it well into dynamic outlets to fight FOR something!

 

A note on ERIS – the most massive and second largest ‘dwarf planet’ in the Solar System with a 560 year orbit. Only discovered 12 years ago, and since ‘she’ appeared larger than PLUTO this caused the whole new definition of planet vs. ‘dwarf planet’. Ha – creating discord right with ‘her’ appearance.

ERIS is in Greek mythology the goddess of strife, discord, and chaos. Doesn’t sound appealing / promising. But already happening, over the last year 2016, since URANUS in ARIES caught up with ERIES (who’s been in ARIES since 1926 – check ‘her’ ephemeris here). Definitely lots of sudden flare-ups and traumatic shockers that have caused discord across the political board.

 

Eris - Antikensammlung Berlin

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

 

In 2016, URANUS was conjunct ERIS in May, and again in Sept / Oct (only once every century). France was strongly affected last year, as its SUN (July 14, 1789) was squared by URANUS / ERIS.
One more exact URANUS / ERIS contact will happen in early April 2017 when URANUS passes ERIS, to come ‘only’ close to ‘her’ again in Dec 2017 / Jan 2018.
The 2017 contacts between URANUS and ERIS will square the U.S. MERCURY (retro) at 24° 11′ CAN (where also Trump’s SATURN / VENUS sit). ‘Divided States’ – no wonder.
In my sense, the early March contact of VENUS / MOON / URANUS / ERIS / MARS (have I mentioned, in mythology Eris and Ares = Mars were siblings?!) is as least as potent as the April exact contact. Esp. since there’ll be also a Solar Eclipse on Feb 26 in early PI (close to the U.S. MOON in late AQ).

Here’s the chart for March 1 – what a concentration in AR, opposed by JUPITER retro in LI.

 

mars-uranus-eris-in-aries-march-1-2017

 

So let’s keep an eye on ERIS, and not feed more energy into discord and strife, while being authentically ‘out there’ in the ARIES spirit. Maybe with a whole new approach that doesn’t buy anymore into division and duality, and liberating ourselves from the ‘game’ of conflict (URANUS in ARIES).

 

venus_planet

Golden Venus

 

As VENUS is entering the ARIES scene today Feb 3, the rather masculine Warrior energy will be joined by the Heroine. VENUS in ARIES doesn’t wait to be asked ‘to dance’ or to be on the scene, she takes 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 Feminine to come out in a new way!
