VENUS in GEMINI (Apr 3 – Aug 7! Going Retro May 12 – June 24) – Alchemy of Love & Values

3 Apr

Dear Astro Alchemy Friends!

 

YAY – VENUS is as of today in GEMINI (since 10:11 am PDT)!
And Messenger MERCURY unites & passes NEPTUNE in PISCES today.

Little Messenger of Love who met me yesterday…

 

Time to find our voice (TAU – GEM cusp), and (re?)learn & practice the Alchemy of L*O*V*E .
The shortest bridge between people can me just a smile and a kind word – definitely carried across 6+ feet.
Let’s be the Learners and Communicators of Love, perceive things in a fresh way, and engage in dialogue & Alchemy & Synergy where 1 + 1 = more than 2.

 

What a breath of fresh AIR to have this de-light-full Planet enter an AIR sign, after a quite literally claustrophobic if not suffocating phase of No AIR Planets.
Which has been going on pretty much since Feb 3 when MERCURY moved from AQ to PISCES for an extended time – until Apr 10 (with a little interspersed AQ phase March 4 – 16).

SATURN was the first Planet to enter an AIR sign, AQ, on March 21, followed & passed by MARS on March 30 / 31.
How can Freedom be preserved in the face of F.E.A.R.?
So yes, there’s a lot of stimulation and a lot stirred up in Societies, Humanity, and the System.
Light Warriors have been stepping up and are in action now.

The AIR Element – now via VENUS in GEM, the upcoming Full SuperMOON on Apr 7 / 8 in LIBRA – ARIES, and SATURN & MARS in AQ, activates discussions, shows us where we find Peace, with all the battles going on, Freedom & CommUnity, despite lock-downs and fears, and how co-creation & co-innovation can help Humanity.

GEMINI is the Alchemist of the Zodiac – bridging polarities and dualities.
The springy-light, ‘pollinating’ vibe of GEM comes into the foreground now, via delightful VENUS – bringing a breeze of fresh AIR into the picture.
And do we ever need a cross-pollination of new ideas via dialogue that might not have happened otherwise!

For quite a while, that-is!
VENUS will be in GEMINI until mid-Summer (Aug 7)!
Due to her upcoming retro phase May 12 – June 24.

Magnetic VENUS has been our faithful ‘Evening Star’ companion for weeks already.
Here’s a pic of Her (faint light on the bottom right – due to my reg. little camera) not far from the waxing MOON in CANCER two days ago.

Venus – Moon Evening Dance

 

Once She entered GEMINI the Retro themes are already showing up:
In the pre- and first half of retro phase, it’s all about noticing how old themes in relationships (LIBRA undertone of the ‘Evening Star’ VENUS) come up. Maybe literally with partners on all levels, where there are unresolved relationship issues that need to be spoken about and alchemized (GEMINI).
The VENUS Retro phase in GEMINI can help us with finding our own Alchemy & Self Love – always a better foundation for relationships anyway.
And the theme of Twin Flames is a big one for VENUS
(plus retro phase) in GEMINI.

More about the VENUS Retro Journey in GEMINI (May 12 – June 24) closer to the time. Stay tuned.

 

There are so many ways of seeing things.
GEMINI celebrates diversity, and learning from one another. 

And, as the image of the Feminine – Masculine ‘Phoenix Twins’ below shows, the dualities are being alchemized.
Both woman & man hold the Caduceus, the winged staff of Hermes / Mercury (ruler of GEMINI) with the two yin & yang serpents (rather than the modern medical / pharmaceutical symbol of the staff with only one serpent… think about it!).
While the tendency of the Mind (MERCURY) is to go into dualities, starting with naming this and / vs that, the GEMINI path is to meet and transmute Dualities. The Phoenix behind / above their Union represents to me Rebirth in the ONE.

 

Mercury Rules Gemini – Achemical Union of Dualities –           Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

If YOU have GEMINI in your chart (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets), enjoy being a magnet this Spring and early to mid-Summer, like a flower to butterflies!
Even in ‘social distancing’ mode – since that’s certainly not a hindrance for VENUS turning soon retro.
Don’t close the door to Love says VENUS retro.
And how about learning new things you’re attracted to, together with / while meeting others
(online in this case)?
Raises the vibrations, is a welcome distraction from the virus distress, plus: Learning connects.
Return to lightness, says VENUS soon retro in GEMINI. And so much to learn from nature and people… and they can learn from you.

Anahata – Heart Chakra Yantra

Overall, with VENUS in GEMINI we attract lots of situations to learn and talk about Love & Values.
VENUS also affects money (as an expression of values) – a redefinition of our relationship to money – as we learn…

And it’s about transforming Fear into Love – best Alchemy and prob. the most important!
The Heart Chakra also connects with the lungs and has the AIR Element attributed. Love strengthens our immune system.
Let’s breathe this IN!

A good time for writing, in loving, relational ways (VENUS), and ‘just’ for l’art pour l’art.
And for those Springy reads on your porch of under shady trees (no social distancing from them required)

 

 

So here they are:

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

…with some (SATURN, MARS, CHIRON, LILITH, and NEPTUNE) 2-3 times pre-, during, and post-retro

 

  • APR 3 
    VENUS enters GEMINI – while MERCURY meets NEPTUNE in PISCES
    Learning the Alchemy of Love – even / esp. when communication is confusing / overwhelming.

 

  • APR 4
    VENUS newly in GEM in Air Trine with SATURN freshly in AQ – also the day of the JUPITER – PLUTO conj. in CAP

    Connecting with openness & curiosity to learn from each other can help through times of social distance and separation. It all contributes to the massive change from the inside-out that we’re going though.

 

  • APR 7 – MAY 7 (pre-Easter Full MOON in LIBRA – ARIES, ruled by VENUS & MARS) – MAY 7 (Wesak MOON in SCO – TAURUS, also trad. ruled by MARS & VENUS)
    VENUS travels close to an Air Trine with MARS in AQ, without actually coming into exact aspect (due to ‘her’ slowing down for the retro phase)
    Learning and connecting, and meeting in dialogue contributes to pro-active community building and vice versa. Let the Venusian lightness and the Martian fierceness come together.

 

  • APR 10 (also June 11 and July 10) – Good Friday
    VENUS in GEM in sextile with CHIRON in ARIES. Plus: VENUS goes into pre-retro ‘shadow’ (passes 5º20′ GEMINI – the point in the Zodiac to which She will go retro to).
    The Love Alchemy starts with showing up raw & vulnerable & authentically, and healing early wounds.

 

  • APR 12 (also June 3 and July 27) – Easter Sunday
    VENUS in GEM in sextile with LILITH in ARIES
    Being You, wild and free and in the NOW. What questions arise? How are you engaging?

 

  • MAY 3 (also May 20 and July 27)
    VENUS in GEM in square with NEPTUNE in PISCES.
    The attraction to learn and communicate – yet just being with what-IS shows & says so much, and changes your energy.

 

  • MAY 12
    VENUS goes retro at 21º50′ GEMINI (check out the Sabian Symbol below!)
    From outer-other orientation (making it about ‘them’) to RE-connecting with the Love within.
    And yes, of course also: Re-connecting with Loved Ones! Heart Communication is an act of Love.

 

  • MAY 20 (also July 27)
    VENUS retro in GEM in square with NEPTUNE in PISCES.

    Picking up gifts of Love Alchemy that might have been temporarily lost. 

 

  • MAY 22 – New MOON in early GEM
    MERCURY meets VENUS retro in GEM
    New ways of lovingly inquiring? Love Letters encouraged too 🙂
    Uhhh, and so many people from the past whom we can lovingly check in with these days.

 

  • JUNE 2
    VENUS retro in GEM in square with MARS in PISCES
    Even if we don’t know where we’re going, let’s stay curious and connected, and be adaptable like surfers.

 

  • JUNE 3 – Day of the ‘New VENUS’
    VENUS retro meets the SUN in GEM – half-way point of the VENUS retro Journey.
    And VENUS retro in sextile with LILITH in ARIES (also July 27)
    The ‘New VENUS’ guides us to find our intrinsic values (perhaps after / through dialogue, reading, and inquiry), and LILITH reminds us: Our True Nature is unconditionally / unconditioned wild & free.

 

  • JUNE 11 (also July 10)
    VENUS retro in GEM in sextile with CHIRON in AR
    Did new-old vulnerabilities arise through the VENUS retro Journey? Hopefully they brought their own Medicine too. Part of the Alchemy. And adding to the Self Love bundle.

 

  • JUNE 24
    VENUS goes direct again at 5º20′ GEMINI
    …and will soon rise as the ‘Morning Star’ again before Sunrise.
    Intrinsic Love Goddess lift us up!

 

  • JULY 10
    VENUS post-retro in GEM in sextile with CHIRON – then stationary (going retro on July 11) in AR (3rd and last time)
    How has what’s been shared and learned contributes to healing?
    Integration time to follow with CHIRON retro (July 11 – Dec 15)

 

  • JULY 27
    Lots of VENUS alignments, and a very astro active day otherwise!
    VENUS post-retro in GEM in sextile with LILITH in ARIES (3rd and last time), in square with NEPTUNE then retro in PISCES (also 3rd and last time), and in quincunx with JUPITER retro in CAP, plus VENUS goes out of the post-retro ‘shadow’ (passes 21º50′ GEMINI – the point in the Zodiac She went retro from).
    Full-on graduation / integration of the Alchemy, when it comes to being fiercely authentic yet loving, staying connected, and showing up with our Best.

 

  • JULY 30
    VENUS post-retro in GEM in quincunx with PLUTO retro in CAP.
    A wonderful time for loving inquiry – accessing the inner core. And for investigative journalism.

 

  • AUG 4
    VENUS post-retro in GEM in quincunx with SATURN then retro and back in CAP
    Yes we can stay light & loving while lots of stuff needs to be done – or rather: completed.

 

  • AUG 7
    VENUS enters CANCER (until Sept 6).
    Home is where the Heart is.

 

Quick overview again re:
Multiple contacts of VENUS with…

 

  • SATURN in AQ / CAP
    April 4: Air Trine to SATURN in AQ while VENUS is pre-retro,
    Aug 4: Quincunx to SATURN retro in CAP while VENUS is post-retro

 

  • MARS in AQ / PI

    June 2: Square to MARS in PI during VENUS retro

 

  • CHIRON in ARIES
    Apr 10: Sextile while VENUS is pre-retro
    June  11: Sextile while VENUS is retro
    July 10: Sextile to stat. CHIRON while VENUS is post-retro

 

  • LILITH in ARIES

  • NEPTUNE in PISCES
    May 3: Square while VENUS is pre-retro
    May 20: Square while VENUS is retro
    July 27: Square to NEPTUNE retro while VENUS is post-retro

 

 

Sabian Symbol for the VENUS Retro Point on May 12

VENUS reaches 21º50′ GEMINI before going retro.
Since that’s so close to 22º GEM let’s see what it tells us.

Mexican Concurso

GEMINI 22°:
“DANCING COUPLES IN A HARVEST FESTIVAL.

KEYNOTE: The wholesome enjoyment of organic processes and emotional drives.

Again we have an image in strong contrast to the first of this series. From the mind-built city, where workmen claim a larger sphere of social abundance, we find ourselves in the village, where men and women live in far greater harmony with natural and seasonal processes, giving free rein to their emotional instincts.
The two poles of a wholesome society – the large industrial city and the agricultural village – should be included; likewise the two poles of a healthy personality – mind and natural emotions – should be active.

This is the contrasting second stage of the seventeenth sequence of five symbols. It stresses the value of rhythmic, healthful activity in a natural setup, for this leads to an often much needed process of BIOENERGETIC REBUILDING.”

 

Uhhh – wouldn’t that be wonderful if by mid-May when VENUS goes retro an overall bio-energetic rebuilding in human health was on the upswing?

Yet – rather than just building up our hopes for something to happen on outward levels, how can we integrate wholesome wellness, by living in harmony with Nature and the seasons?
Besides / despite all the information and instructions that are swirling around, GEMINI style – what do our instincts & Self Love say?
When VENUS goes retro we move from a strong relational orientation to ‘the other’ (for better to worse) to come to our own values and to Self Love.

 

Where in your chart is GEMINI?


That’s where you look for / find new inspiration, diversity, and are interested in learning & exploring.
VENUS helps you appreciate and attract in relation to these areas of your Life.
That’s also where the VENUS Retro phase happens. From other-orientation to Self Love.

1st House

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS – All ONLINE at this Time

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 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for your private Astro session!

 

And here’s my contribution for Cosmic Relief this challenging situation:

 

Just contact me at licht@islandnet.com if you’d like to set one up.

VENUS in TAURUS (March 4 – Apr 3): Enjoying Life-into-Spring!

3 Mar

Dear Astro Friends on Planet Earth!

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

 

SPRING is starting to bloom here in the Northern Hemisphere, as VENUS enters TAU tomorrow, March 4!
VENUS is ‘early’ this year… since ‘she’ is ‘ahead’ of the SUN in the Zodiac, and getting ready for ‘her’ retro journey, May 12 – June 24 (all in GEMINI).

Sooo, 03/04 – 04/03 it is, for VENUS in her home domain of TAURUS!
Nice numerical-symmetrical alignment.

VENUS’s entry into TAU comes as a sighhh of relief, esp after the intense squares from VENUS in ARIES with PLUTO in CAP (on Feb 28) and SATURN in CAP on March 3. which could have evoked stressful conflicts between being attracted to the joyful, and ‘solid reasons / experience’ (or plain / hidden fear) that can hold us back.
Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’, did you let the Inner CAP Sage and the Fierce ARIES Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes, and lead on with Love?

Early March is quite a VENUS focus, as
March 3, VENUS at the end of AR squares SATURN in CAP.
March 4, VENUS crosses over the ‘Settling Point’ into TAU.
March 8, VENUS meets URANUS in TAU.

Money / value / self esteem / relationship issues? 
The build-up to VENUS square SATURN as the ‘send-away’ from ARIES, exact today March 3 has shown:
After all those experiences about blockages, obstacles, old patterns, and what NOT to repeat –
It’s Time to lead on with fierce Love, starting with Self Love.

VENUS already squared JUPITER & PLUTO (Feb 23 / 28).

The ‘Old Empire Expires’.
Yes, old societal structures, esp. hierarchical, controlling ones are changing while still trying to exert their power (PLUTO) yet are outdated and coming to an end while we’re called to buy into fear based authority but own our true authority (SATURN), as we see the bigger picture and context of what’s going on in those structures & mechanisms, and outgrow them (JUPITER).

We’re not being defined / confined by these ‘old matrixes’ with their ‘shoulds’, expectations, obligations, rules, restrictions, judgment, ‘do it the hard way’ to get approval & ‘love’, but show up with fierce intrinsic Love that starts from the inside-out (VENUS in ARIES).
Life is NOW, and we’re not into a repeat of his-story.
Time to step forward, with Love!

 

With VENUS in TAURUS,

it’s time to settle, enjoy Life-in-early-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment – without attachment, since nothing is permanent…
….knows & conveys esp. URANUS in TAURUS these years (March 6, 2019 – Apr 26, 2026) which VENUS meets on March 8 – the eve of the VIR – PI Big Wave Full Moon.
This energy brings shake-ups & wake-ups that can be unsettling for the body, for anything we value, for the economy, and for Planet Earth.
URANUS, activated by VENUS, shakes stuckness loose, and teaches us to emBody Love, Light, and Freedom.

 

Birth of Venus -Painting by S. Botticelli.


VENUS in TAURUS celebrates the Goddess in all her expressions of Beauty, Life, and Love. A beautiful, sensuous energy – yummm & ahhh!

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets and the House TAU occupies in your chart become a magnet, while VENUS visits, until Apr 3.

 

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


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!

Not really stressful, mostly a calm, grounding, and powerful ‘weather’ for VENUS in ‘her own’ TAURUS abode (one of the two Zodiac signs ‘she’ rules), once ‘she’s settled (from mid-March on).

 


So here they are:

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

 

  • MARCH 4
    VENUS enters TAU, just after having been in square with SATURN in CAP.
    After all those experiences about blockages, obstacles, old patterns, and what NOT to repeat.
    Time to lead on with fierce Love, starting with Self Love.

 

  • MARCH 8 – eve of the VIR – PI Big Wave Full Moon
    VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS.

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

 

  • MARCH 22
    VENUS in TAU in sextile with NEPTUNE (VENUS’s ‘higher octave’) in PISCES.
    Relax & be at ease. Open for blessings to come your way.

 

  • MARCH 27 – 28
    VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with JUPITER / PLUTO in CAP, while the waxing MOON will be also in TAU, and meet VENUS on March 28!
    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!

 

  • APR 3
    VENUS enters GEMINI (until AUG 7 – due to retro phase May 12 – June 24!).
    De-Lightful Connections.

 

Where in your chart is TAURUS?


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

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

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

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

6th House
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 a truly JOYful Spring Time, with VENUS in TAURUS!

VENUS over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP (Nov 25 – Dec 19) – Timeless & Rock-Solid Love!

20 Nov

Dear Astro Friend,

All about VENUS…

Heart Chakra Yantra – Sound: Yang

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

 

In her last days in uplifting SAG this year, on Nov 24, VENUS will meet big Mentor JUPITER – in the Galactic Centre – the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy!

 

What a ‘grand finale’ in SAG!
Feeling it already? 
An initiation into celebrating creative Goddess energy, and to be BIG and generous with our loving, magnetic Heart!

The day after, VENUS crosses over the Winter Solstice cusp from SAG to CAP which I call the Integrity Point, where she helps us become a magnet for attracting what’s ‘real’, lasting, timeless, and in integrity / what 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.
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’re ‘sending out’.


An ‘inventory’ / assessment time, with VENUS in CAP before Winter SoUlstice:

 

  • 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 & love in mature & mutual respect? 

 

  • Maybe, ‘simply’ walking away from situations where people won’t / can’t give you loving appreciation, and where you’ve been putting up with what doesn’t honour you is ‘walking your talk’ and the wisest thing to do.

 

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

SATURN these years in its natural CAP energy (for almost 2 years now, and 1 more to come) couldn’t agree more:
Don’t do it the hard way, i.o.w., work too hard to to ‘receive / earn Love’ 
(which could certainly come up this month, as an old conditioning), rather (a la reformed VENUS / SATURN duo):
Do it the Heart Way!

With VENUS in CAP, on her way to meet SATURN on Dec 11 (on the day of the next Full Moon!), we  might feel called to make a timely & important commitment, while finding closure of an old pattern or two – in the area of life related to CAPRICORN in our charts.

The unfathomably deep VENUS – PLUTO connection (on Friday Dec 13!) integrates VENUS’s transit in CAP – while ushering in LOTS of CAP energy this early Winter, surrounding the upcoming top transit everybody’s talking about:

The SATURN – PLUTO conjunction in CAP on Jan 12, 2020!

… which closes a 38-year cycle of societal structural breakdown, and brings evidence for purging of the CAP shadow, and rebuilding from the core & basics. The Old Empire expires.

Planet ‘Dates’ with VENUS in CAP (Nov 25 – Dec 19):

 

NOV 26 – Day of the New Moon in SAG
VENUS in CAP in square with CHIRON retro in ARIES
Impulses for the new and authentic-NOW can clash with traditionalist ‘leave it as it is’ attachments. Reconcile the Medicine of Innocence with Maturity & Experience.  

 

NOV 28
VENUS (and the MOON) in CAP in Earth Trine with URANUS retro in TAU.
How about a yummy meal with grandma’s recipe? And how about inviting a surprise guest for dinner?
Or sponsoring dinner to those who lack the resources we have?
Low Income Donation Day on NOV 29 – All proceeds go to Christmas meals @ Our Place.
 

 

DEC 2
JUPITER follows VENUS, and also enters CAP (Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020).
Working with Energy Optimally & for the Highest Good.
Check out the customized Astro Parlour on Dec 2 where we invoke the Best of JUPITER in CAP and align with it!
 

 

DEC 3
VENUS in CAP sextiles MARS in SCO.
Rock solid love invites us to bravely, fiercely go deeper.  

 

DEC 4
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…
 

 

DEC 8
VENUS in CAP in sextile with stationary NEPTUNE (her ‘higher octave’ Archetype) in PISCES.
There are relationships and values that never grow old.
And there’s unconditional connectedness.
 

 

DEC 11 – Day before the Full MOON in GEM – SAG
VENUS in CAP meets ringed SATURN.
What (or whom?) are you ready to commit to, from your Heart, and because it’s Time?
And what’s done and complete / matured out of (even though you used to love it)? Acknowledge its purpose, and wrap it up with Love. A great day for a ceremony, either way.

By then, VENUS, JUPITER, SATURN, and PLUTO are all in CAP. 
SUN & MERCURY to join at Solstice / NY.  

 

Friday DEC 13 – VENUS / MOON Day (hijacked & perverted into a ‘bad luck day’)
VENUS in CAP meets ‘deep dark’ PLUTO while the MOON will be in her CANCER abode.
You might feel you’re the one choosing, yet something deeper and ‘older’ calls you. Power to Love.
And never mind what those who used to be in power & authority ‘up there’ told you. That era / empire expires now.

What a grand finale for VENUS in CAP (until DEC 19)!  

 

 

VENUS in CAP in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in CAPRICORN and the area/s of life relating to the CAP House/s in your birth (and local) chart/s to be magnetic and attract – esp if you come from a rock-solid foundation.

…after a perhaps frustrating yet effective ‘clearing’ and phase of closures with SATURN in CAP over the last 2 years.
We really have matured so much in our CAP Houses since Dec 2017.  

 

1st House 
Your Presence and Sense of Self

Mature, calm, reliable, resourceful & resilient. No energy waste.
You’re a magnet as you ARE (meaning: unconditionally, no (more) need to prove anything). Love yourself fully. And: Always time for Love!
 

 

2nd House 
Your Values. What you own, literally & metaphorically, incl. your Business

Building on solid ground is your thing.
A good time to acquire something of lasting / increasing value. What gives you true rock-solid security?
Time to appreciate what you already have, and attract through solidly standing in your values. Know your value/s and live by them – without judging others for not living up to them. And don’t you love yourself more as you mature? (Ha, reminds me of wine & cheese…).
 

 

3rd House 
Your Environment & Relatives

SO conservative and judgmental… or: traditional and always there for one another, old fashioned / timeless reliability.
Love & appreciate what has grown better with time between you and them. Live and let live. Let them know how you love them, in simple terms.
 

 

4th House 
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

A rock-solid ancient world, affected by & writing history. Or just sooo old world / old empire,and you’ve become SO done with it?
What keeps attracting you back to your roots? A dharma purpose awaiting you there? How can you love the strength of the ancestors, feel their timeless support, while not doing things the hard way (anymore) – out of unconscious loyalty to their hardship?
Receive their Soul support to BE the evolution!

 

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

Play may indeed have priority (a matter of permission?).
Create something important – one step / day at a time. Instead of being held back by judgment, turn to the wisdom of experience, and infuse your creativity with mature ‘grandma love’. And: Love your children as they mature and appreciate every ‘season’ with them.  

 

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

Taking on something serious & responsible?
Love yourself and the service you offer in a calm, knowing, experienced way. As you might be drawn to introduce a healthy routine that requires commitment don’t be too hard on yourself, and appreciate the journey as much as the ‘progress’.
A good time to attract people & projects you can be in service to, in a blend of Love & Challenge.  

 

7th House 
Your Partners & Significant Others

Mature and reliable ones may apply.
Enough frustrations, hardship, rejections, NO’s on their or your side. Done with old patterns.
How has SATURN in CAP been your (at times perhaps tough) relationship coach? Love doesn’t equate / require work. Let VENUS show you…
 

 

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others. Your Transformations

Serious processes you’ve been through – in Life and esp. in the last years.
A time to attract those who ‘get you’. Love yourself through hardship. Don’t take too much on for others – you know that ‘loving’ guilty feeling… But hey, be there for them with your time, resources, and love as it’s in integrity.
 

 

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

You don’t take those lightly.
Have more serious lessons-into-wisdom have shown up on your Path in the last 2 years? Which people,  places, and purpose are you attracted to now, with all your experience under your belt?
 

 

10th House 
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

You challenge yourself, don’t you?!
Hope you haven’t been held back by fear and performance anxiety in the last years, or judged (yourself) unfairly. The public loves you, esp. these weeks. Yes, because you lead by example and have accomplished something admirable. But also just because.
Be out there where you attract quality. An upgrade is due.
 

 

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

Top notch. Established. Or simply solid.
And / or people who’ve been there, done that, and co-invest their time and energy into what matters most, at the end of the day. Enjoy precious time together, and how you’ve seen each other mature over time.
 

 

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

Form & Formlessness. Ever interchanging and simultaneously present for you.
Time is a mystery / illusion. How have you experienced the evidence of it ‘lately’?
The Universe has your back, and you can rely on it – as you tie up your Camel. Take in the Cosmic Love and share it out – easy!
   

 

 

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

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

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

Why? Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized. The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

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

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

8 Oct

Blooming in the Dark – Photo by Melanie

 

Dear Astro~News Friend,

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

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

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

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

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

Peacock-a-boo. Photo by Melanie

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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


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

 

Back to the SCORPIO Houses – we all have one (or two):

 

1st House
How you show up
Mysterious, magical, magnetic (and scary to some people)
Don’t hide – value yourself, and meet your shadow with love.

 

2nd House
What you have and value
The power to affect others deeply and the power to change
Treasure those gifts in disguise. 

 

3rd House
Your ‘relatives’ and environment
Hard core of Magical Beings – with muggles in the neighbourhood
Time to mingle and learn some tricks from each other

 

4th House
Your home & family
A magical place & regenerative Spa (or a skeleton in every closet and drawer)
Time for a purge – you might love what comes to the light! Time to connect with family and give them the love that shines through darkness.

 

5th House
Your creativity
You’re an alchemist – a juicy time for new creations you and the world will love.

 

6th House
Your work, health, and lifestyle
Time for a cleanse, and to attract new work connections that can change you and them.

 

7th House
Your significant others
The Magic of Love and Attraction. Whom are you drawn to and who’s drawn to you now, and why might this be?

 

8th House
Your deep involvement and transformations –
Time to dive in – with Love that takes you through.

 

9th House
Your travels and worldviews
Going to deep and magical places…

 

10th House

Taboo free zone – where you find your Match.

 

12th House
Your Oneness with ALL –
The Big Mystery.

 
 

 

VENUS on the ‘Alchemy Point’ and in SCORPIO now brings lots of Alchemical and Magical Attractions & Gifts – if we’re diving IN!

 

Aligned with this, I’d love to invite you to this Astro Offering that goes well with the VENUS Journey:

 

ASTROLOGY Supports INNER ALCHEMY

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

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

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


On the ‘problematic’ side of VENUS in SCO:

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

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

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

VENUS in VIRGO (Aug 21 – Sept 14) – Self Alignment is Beautiful

19 Aug

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

 

Virgo and Mercury, Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

VENUS will cross over the ‘Sphinx Point’ of Self (LEO) Awareness (VIRGO) on AUG 21.
Self Awareness, loving and knowing ourselves, and being in alignment with the Cosmic Self
(as the image above illustrates so beautifully) is the prerequisite of helping others finding their light – true service.

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

Under VENUS in VIRGO, our loving qualities can be well channeled into the work we’re here to do. 
Yet good to remember for self critical VIRGO to not wait until we’re perfect, and not to sabotage the work that’s needed by considering it as ‘not good enough’.
That’s where Self Awareness comes in – Know Thyself and do what’s good for you.
I.o.w., what helps when these conditioned voices come up is to bring ourselves back into alignment, perhaps through a health / wellness / spiritual practice, like meditation, Yoga, Qi Gong, walking in Nature.
Anything that can turn into a healthy routine, bringing us back into ourselves. Self sufficient VIRGO loves that.

Crystal (mainly clear Quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Crystal Activation and Photo by Melanie

VENUS and the MOON in VIRGO (aligned on Aug 30) are also associated with Priestess energy.
An initiation into the Sacred Feminine is in the making – via the Super-VIRGO New MOON on AUG 30, with SUN, MOON, MERCURY, VENUS, and MARS!
Loving this Voyager Tarot representation (image to the left).

ENUS in VIRGO can bring out the d.i.y. / self sufficiency side a tad too much, so that we’re not so open to receive – reflected in the qualification of VENUS being ‘in Fall’ in VIRGO (while ‘she’s exalted in PISCES – being in loving flow attracts!).

Good to remember, and to open up and let the Love IN – as NEPTUNE in PI would offer.
VENUS will go into opposition / relationship with LILITH and NEPTUNE retro on Sept 1 – 4 – to make sure the balance of healthy discernment / alignment and openness & easy flow is in place.

 

Line-up of ‘dates & dances’ for VENUS in VIRGO with other Planets 

In order (yep, gotta be orderly, says VIRGO) of appearance:

 

AUG 21
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

AUG 24 – 26
VENUS conjunct MARS (in VIRGO since Aug 16) on Aug 24, quincunx CHIRON retro in AR on Aug 25, and trine URANUS retro in TAU on Aug 26.
This beautiful Earth Trine of VENUS / MARS – URANUS  brings stability to what could have shown up before as unsettling, with URANUS in
(VENUS ruled) TAURUS, squared by VENUS (early Aug) & by MARS (early July) while they were both in LEO.
Good to be in loving Self Alignment while setting ourselves free from sticky attachments and ‘ownership’.

 

AUG 30
The NEW MOON in VIRGO joins VENUS (and MARS too).
Beauty to behold and engage with (yet never own).

 

SEPT 1 / 2
VENUS in VIR trine SATURN retro in CAP, and opp. LILITH in PISCES (Sept 1), and square JUPITER in SAG (Sept 2).
Good to be in loving Self Alignment and commitment to integrity, while not playing ‘small’ and ‘managerial’ but trusting the abundance of Life and being attuned to our Cosmic ‘wild’ Nature. 

 

SEPT 4 – 6
VENUS opp. NEPTUNE retro in PI.
Let the Love in!
VENUS trine PLUTO retro in CAP.
Naturally empowered and grounded in the Core of your Being – Love.

 

SEPT 13 – Day of the PISCES – VIRGO Full MOON / Harvest Moon.
And: Day of the Sacred Feminine – Friday the 13th!
MERCURY in VIRGO meets VENUS, the day before both enter LIBRA – ruled by VENUS.
Speaking from Love, clearly and in integrity – beauty shines through this.

 

SEPT 14
VENUS goes into LIBRA (until Oct 8)
VENUS being presently the ‘Evening Star’ and also in LIBRA is very peace & harmony, beauty & aesthetics oriented.
It also shows us about our relational ‘bias’ (comparing ourselves / designing ourselves for others / making our life and our choices overly about others).
What does true Balance say?

 

VENUS in VIRGO attracts and helps us in relation to Self Awareness, Alignment, and being of Service.

Which we can access most easily via the area of life related to VIRGO in our chart:

 

1st House:
Showing up aware (don’t be too self-critical!) and self contained attracts.

2nd House:
What you have and value –
Your health and self sufficiency are attractive gifts!

3rd House:
Your environment with its mentality –
Grounding you, and showing you where you can help.

4th House:
Your home & origin –
A workshop / working people?

5th House:
Your creativity, children, and lovers –
Be discerning, use your skills, and do what’s healthy.

6th House:
Your work, health, and lifestyle –
Being in good shape is a good health insurance, and good for your business too.

7th House:
Your significant others –
Doing their thing… Check out what types of people you attract, and discern what kind of relationship is healthy, and in alignment for you.

8th House:
Your deep involvement and transformations –
Which practice helps you, them, and you together?

9th House:
Your travels and worldviews –
Travel on a budget, for work, and to help ‘the world’.

10th House:
Your calling and purpose –
To be in alignment and of service.

11th House:
Your community –
Aware & healthy – wellness practitioners welcome.

12th House:
Your oneness with ALL –
Wholeness as Self-in-All.

 

Blessings for the (precisely) 3 weeks & 4 days of VENUS in VIRGO!
Wishing you a consciously de-light-full time!

16 Jul

Boom – here comes the not-to-be-missed Summer Glory of VENUS in LEO!

Quite the fiery end-of-July week – no boredom:

  • The SUN enters its glow-rious LEO domain on July 22 – Bring on the Summer heat!
  • MARS in fiery LEO goes into Fire Trine with JUPITER retro / stationary in SAG, on July 25 – Lots of energy for passion and adventure – caramba!
  • And: Lady VENUS enters the LEO domain on July 27 – meowy roarrr!

Celebrate, Let your Hair down, Show your Mane, and most of all: 
Live Life Lovingly!

 

What’d got to show us?
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!

 

Rather than… being in the low vibrationall compensations of: being too self enamored, narcissistic, a high maintenance / spoiled brat / diva (the shadow sides of LEO that everyone else BUT the LEO sees, hilarious actually…).

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

 

What’s ‘she’ up to, during her ‘cat walk’?
Whom / which other Archetypes does ‘she’ go into contact with, sizzlingly so, while in LEO?

 

JULY 27
VENUS enters LEO (until Aug 21).
Warm Summer Radiance from the Heart Attracts!

 

JULY 31
The almost-New MOON (6 1/2 hrs before the New Moon) in LEO meets VENUS ‘Morning Star’.
Sweet and sparkling Celebration of Life & Love.

 

AUG 1
VENUS in Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in AR.
A New Love?
A fresh way of being authentically present from the inside-out (CHIRON retro in ARIES), self-loving / life-loving (VENUS in LEO), naturally brilliant and magnetic.

 

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

 

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

 

AUG 9
VENUS quincunx SATURN retro / the South Node in CAP.
Can you be done with working so hard to be acknowledged and loved, and start with a healthy dose of Self Love? It’s your life. Live the Love!
The radiant, creative, loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess attracts without needing to prove anything!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

VENUS in LEO attracts and magnetizes what relates to Self Expression. 
Which you can access most easily via the area of life related to LEO in your chart:

 

1st House:
How you show up. Show your Colours and BE Yourself!
You attract reflections of your radiant Nature.

2nd House:
What you have and value – Your creativity, warmth and confidence are attractive gifts!

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

4th House:
Your home – The Heart and Inner Child call you Home!

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

6th House:
Your work and health – Being in good shape and creative is a good health insurance, and good for your business too.

7th House:
Your significant others – Artists and actors? Narcissists? Big kids? Truly creative and naturally confident ones? Check out what types of people you attract.

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

9th House:
Your travels and worldviews – Travel in style – or ‘simply’ where you can play and have fun! Learn about the nature of Self.

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

11th House:

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

2 Jul

Dear Cosmic Souls,

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

The GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – a Fairie vibe

Tomorrow July 3, VENUS will move into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until July 27):
Show your love through gentleness and care. And if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.

Literally being by and IN the Water is a big draw now. It can help relax and ‘smooth’ us out, after sooo much Eclipse stir-up, plus re: the MARS – URANUS thrill that’s kicking in next week.
With the airy fairy VENUS in GEMINI energy since June 8 we enjoyed buzzing around, interested in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI and opp. JUPITER in SAG round June 23 / 24 could have shown.

Now, as VENUS enters CANCER, we might go 2 steps forward (“yes, I’m attracted to that”), 1 step back (“let me check in how I really feel about it”), or even 2 steps back, and back off altogether from ‘ideas’ that sounded good and were attractive, under VENUS in MERCURY ruled GEMINI.

And, hey:
Home is where the Heart is – ever so true and important, under VENUS in CANCER!
Esp. the CANCERian sides in us might feel drawn to home and family, and to every being and place that makes us feel like we belong.

Plus, our Planetary / AC / MC / Nodal energies in CANCER will be more magnetic and attractive this month too.

 

So let’s take it easy and gentle, and get a felt sense of her ‘Planet Dates’ this month.
They’
re most ‘UP’ between July 16 – 18, round the Full MOON / PLE. 

 

JULY 3
VENUS enters CANCER

 

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

 

JULY 16 – Day of the Full MOON / PLE
VENUS connects with SIRIUS & the North Node in CANCER, and goes into quincunx with JUPITER retro in SAG, and opposite VEGA / SATURN retro / the South Node in CAP.
A dilemma between our sensitivity in relationships (which likely goes back to early childhood / family dynamics), and the need to step up to the occasion – perhaps set boundaries, and in general show up with self respect?
Instead of retreating into the safe shell and giving in to fear based behaviour (“What do they say?” “Will they reject / punish me? / exile me from the tribe?”), let’s take care of our needs and find freedom in this. Let’s be open to others about our feelings, while being the mature grown-up, and do what’s required. Plus, the ‘Old Empire’ is on the way out anyway….

 

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

 

JULY 21 – last day of CANCER 2019, and the M-r half-way point aka ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’
VENUS opposes PLUTO retro in CAP.
You might feel in an all-or-nothing mode, esp. in relationships that meet your core – and shadow.
Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most – and to the Heart & Soul?

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Check out the Astro Experiences & Creations in the next while: 

You’re welcome to join us!

 

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

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

3 Jun

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

The GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – a Fairie Vibe

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

  • June 13
    VENUS in sextile with CHIRON in ARIES.

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

  • June 27
    VENUS quincunx PLUTO retro in CAP.

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

 

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

 

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings to YOU!

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

9 May

Dear Astro Friends on Planet Earth!

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

 

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

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

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

A beautiful, sensuous energy – yummm & ahhh!

 

Birth of Venus -Painting by S. Botticelli.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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


So here they are:

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Where in your chart is TAURUS?


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

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

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

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

3rd House:
You in Your Local Environment

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

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

6th House:
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 a truly JOYful Spring Time, with VENUS in TAURUS!

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

Butterflybaby

Butterfly Baby, Photo by Anne Geddess

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.
