VENUS crosses the Alchemy Point into SCORPIO (09 / 09), to go retro Oct 5 – Nov 16: How deep is your Love?

8 Sep

VENUS in fair LIBRA crosses tonight the ‘Alchemy Point’ / ‘Tipping Point’, and starts ‘her’ underworld journey in SCORPIO (Sept 9 – Oct 31 & Dec 2 – Jan 8)!

VENUS will be for a long time in LIBRA and SCORPIO this Fall and early Winter since she’ll go retro from Oct 5 to Nov 16 (from mid-SCO back to late LI, the ‘Alchemy Point’) – which adds another layer of ‘underworld journey’!

VENUS is now ‘Evening Star’ (setting after the SUN), which also has a LIBRA ‘undertone’, showing us, we can make our life and self-worth a lot about other people (comparing ourselves, etc…).

The VENUS retro phase (every 1 1/2 years) will help us come back to our own self-value. Which often starts with:
Re-evaluating relationships…
Inner Goddess re-emerging.

If this intrigues you stay tuned for a Special VENUS Retro Parlour early October.

Of course, I’d be honoured to visit your VENUS retro themes with you already before, in private session.

Under VENUS in SCORPIO, we’re attracted to the mystery, to peek behind the scenes, 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 also attract experiences that call for emotional processing – esp. as VENUS goes into her retro ‘Underworld Journey’ – starting from SCORPIO.
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 in a low vibrational ‘magical black hole’ of stuff like online crime scenes, vampire movies, or real life vampiric situations(!), personal power games, and addictions that suck your life blood.
Let’s channel the energy into deep immersion in the Mystery of Life!

 

More about VENUS retro in a specific blog post, closer to Oct 5 when the Journey begins.

Here’s already a peek at the chart for the onset of VENUS Retro 2018:

 

 

On the ‘U-turn’ (Oct 5), VENUS will come close to, yet not fully join JUPITER in SCO, as you see in the chart above, and rather ‘back off’.
Their meeting will be only on Jan 22, when both are well into SAG – showing how spacious, generous, fun, and truly free relationships can look like!


The VENUS retro and post-retro phase can help us with processing of what’s stuck and preventing this freedom:

  • What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
  • What 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’?

Tuning into the trine from VENUS to (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE, now also retro in PISCES – an alignment that will be close (not exact – 4° apart) and stationary early to mid-Oct can be an oasis in the desert, and a truly magnificent, magical gift.
For some people also a ‘grand escape’ into fantasies, illusions, and addictions that draw you in and suck your energy – VENUS retro will show us about that side too…

Before, during and after her Retro phase, VENUS on the Alchemy Point (partially in SCO, partially in LI) will have triple dates with

URANUS (Freedom) – in VENUS ruled TAU
SATURN (Commitment / Integrity), and the
Nodal Axis (Karmic Pathways, uhhhh, oh-so retro related too)!

 

Here are these triple encounters and their themes:

  • VENUS in SCO / LI opposite URANUS in early TAU (also going retro, back into AR on Nov 6)
    VENUS pre-retro Sept 12, retro Oct 31, post-retro (then in LI – AR) Nov 30.
    Intimacy vs / and(!) Freedom in Relationships.
    Freedom from the ‘Known’, from old habitual patterns that we’re attached to (either out of comfort or out of unprocessed pain) – and may continue to attract until we set ourselves free – or Divine Intervention does.

 

  • VENUS in SCO sextile SATURN in early CAP
    VENUS Pre-retro Sept 12, retro Oct 24, post-retro Dec 16.
    Commitment to deep trust and intimacy in integrity – what are ‘obstacles’, what can be worked on or completed now?
     
  • VENUS in SCO / LI square the Nodal Axis in AQ / CAP (SN) – LEO / CAN (NN) (the Nodal Axis will shift back into CAP – CAN on Nov 16)
    VENUS pre-retro Sept 14, retro Oct 31, post-retro Dec 1.
    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!

 

Sooo, the strongest VENUS (in SCO) Alignment concentrations happen already next week, Sept 12 – 14 The MOON will be in SCO too then, uniting with VENUS on Sept 12 (once a month). Together they invite into sweet, intimate vibrations!
Then again round Halloween, and finally late Nov / early Dec.


The ‘NEW VENUS
‘ – half-way through her retro phase, and in alignment with the SUN will be also in early SCORPIO, on Oct 26!

 

VENUS into SCO and on the ‘Alchemy Point’ brings lots of Alchemical and Magical Gifts – if we’re diving IN!

 

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


Our
 next Astro~EmBODYment on Sept 16  will be on the Soul Farm on Gabriola Island!

Balance is Beautiful. VENUS ‘Evening Star’ enters LIBRA on Aug 6 (until Sept 9, plus: Oct 31 – Dec 2, due to VENUS retro, Oct 5 – Nov 16)

5 Aug

The Birth of Venus by Botticelli

VENUS Love Goddess makes a move from VIRGO into her ‘domain’ of LIBRA – ahhh!

VENUS in VIRGO (since July 9) has attracted lots of themes (if not problems) to ‘work on’ and bring into alignment and healing – to be in wholeness.
Which also means: self sufficiency, and not ‘needing’ a partner. 

From this place, attraction is based on complementariness, rather than co-dependency. 
With or without ‘significant other’ relationship, VENUS in LIBRA invites us to bring harmony, balance, and beauty into our lives.

 

Freshly in LIBRA, VENUS will have ‘dates’ with 4 cuspy / early-sign retro Archetypes all within 3 days, Aug 7 – 9:
MARS retro in AQ, CHIRON retro in AR, URANUS retro in TAU (ruled by VENUS), and SATURN retro in CAP.

AUG 7
VENUS in LIBRA trine MARS retro in AQ.
Stepping away from social conditioning that creates unnecessary conflict attracts better matches.

AUG 8 – 8-8 / SIRIUS Rising.
VENUS in LI opp. CHIRON in AR.
Yes, you can be in peace and harmony AND authentic.

AUG 9
VENUS in LIBRA quincunx URANUS retro in TAU, and square SATURN retro in CAP.
‘Nice’ and charming isn’t always the answer. Free yourself from bullying, stand by your values, and in your integrity, but don’t be too rigid and judgmental either. Keep it simple.


Love, Peace, Harmony, and right Relationship can help balance lots of old, long-standing issues…
Yet don’t get too much drawn into their / old agenda – otherwise VENUS retro has to sort it out again this Fall…

 

Yes, VENUS will be for a long time in LIBRA and SCORPIO this Fall and early Winter since she’ll go retro from Oct 5 to Nov 16 (from mid-SCO back to late LI, the ‘Alchemy Point’).
VENUS is now ‘Evening Star’ (setting after the SUN), which also has a LIBRA ‘undertone’, showing us, we can make our life and self-worth a lot about other people (comparing ourselves, etc…). 
The VENUS retro phase (every 1 1/2 years) will help us come back to our own self-value. Which often starts with: re-evaluating relationships…
Inner Goddess re-emerging.

If this intrigues you stay tuned for a Special VENUS Retro Parlour early Oct. 

Of course, I’d be honoured to visit your VENUS retro themes with you already before, in private session.

 

Blessings for the VENUSian Infusion!

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.

AUGUST is Client Appreciation Month, at the occasion of the 18th anniversary of my Astrology practice!
Come on over, or let’s meet online, for a substantially discounted (11% – 22% – 33%, depending on how long you’ve been my client) Astro session. And let your friends know!

 

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.
Our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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

4 Jul

Cosmic Greetings, dear Astro~News Reader!

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

JULY 9
VENUS enters VIRGO.
Self Alignment is Beautiful.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

VENUS enters LEO (June 13 – July 9): Love Yourself & Show Your Love!

11 Jun

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

Quite the week – no boredom:

MERCURY enters CANCER on June 12 (until June 28), and immediately connects with its ‘higher octave’ URANUS, and also with CHIRON on June 13.
The GEMINI New Moon / SuperMoon (closer to Earth than ‘normal’) on June 13.

And:
Lady VENUS enters the LEO domain on June 13 – meowy roarrr!
Celebrate, Let your Hair down and Show your Mane, and most of all: 

Live Life Lovingly!

 

What’d got to show?
Your LEOnine side will be quite the radiant magnet these weeks!

Don’t be shy, SHINE!

Show Time, Glow & Glamour Time… and foremost: Show your LOVE!

Lioness

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

VENUS will be in LEO until July 9, adding to the Summer Radiance.

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

 

June 13 – The Day of the GEM New Moon!
VENUS enters LEO (until July 9):
Warm Summer Radiance from the Heart Attracts!

 

June 14 / 15
VENUS square URANUS in TAU, and trine CHIRON in AR:
A New Love?
A new way of being authentically present (CHIRON in ARIES), self-loving / life-loving (VENUS in LEO), naturally brilliant and magnetic. No room for old sticky attachments.
Set yourself free, and love yourself. Set your Heart on Fire!

 

June 16
The Crescent MOON in LEO meets VENUS ‘Evening Star’:
Sweet and sparkling Celebration of Life & Love.

 

June 19 – 21
VENUS quincunx SATURN retro in CAP.
VENUS conj. the North Node in LEO, and opposite MARS (which is about to go retro on June 26) in AQ:
Can you be done with working so hard to be acknowledged and loved, and start with a healthy dose of Self Love? It’s your life. Live the Love!
With VENUS activating the North Node in LEO let’s be more in a healthy LEO mode of LIVING LIFE LOVINGLY, and showing ourselves Heart-fully and creatively (vs. being ‘one of many’, just ‘watching the show and drama’ of others, in depleting, even self-harming, ‘detached’ AQ mode). 

The radiant, creative, loving Divine Feminine and Inner Goddess attracts!

 

June 25
VENUS square JUPITER retro in SCO:
Show your Love and Passion. Be intimately involved with Life!

 

June 27 – The Day after MARS goes retro
VENUS quincunx with (‘her’ higher octave) NEPTUNE stationary / retro in PI:
A Love Affair with the Universe. Don’t take things too purrrsonally. Love is letting go (incl. of ‘old’ conflict’, and letting BE. Tune into the Divine Feminine & Universal Love.

 

July 1
VENUS quincunx PLUTO retro / LILITH in CAP:
Dedicate your Love to the Well-Being of All. Find the ‘wild’, natural Soul Love that never gets old, and isn’t even time-bound.

 

July 9
VENUS crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR (there until Aug 6):
From the Queen to the Priestess. Bringing our Love into Service and Alignment.

 

VENUS will go retro (every 1 1/2 years) this Fall, from Oct 5 – Nov 16, in SCO / late LIBRA.
A time to re-connect with the ‘Inner Lover’ and re-connect with our intrinsic value, and more…
Blog post about it to come….

 

For now, it’s time for a Heart-fully passionate and creative month!
En-JOY!

VENUS in CANCER (May 19 – June 13): Loving Gentleness and Care

17 May

Fairie

GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – Fairy Vibes

Ahhh – a soothing balance to the sharp MARS – URANUS energy:

On May 19, VENUS will move into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until June 13):
Show your love through gentleness and care, and if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.

Literally being by and IN the water is a big draw now, and can help ‘smooth’ us out and RELAX, after sooo much MARS – URANUS thrill, as well as airy fairy energy, with VENUS in GEMINI, buzzing around, interesting in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI – exact on May 7 – could have shown.

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

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

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

 

So let’s take it easy and gentle, and get a sense of her ‘dates’ this month:

May 19 / 20:
Right on the first weekend ‘at home’ in CANCER,
VENUS goes into sextile with URANUS freshly in TAU, into square with CHIRON freshly in AR, and into quincunx with MARS freshly in AQ.
What kind of party / family is this?
Supportive of freedom and non-clingy / non-possessive vibes.
Yet, even though it can be awkward, raw and vulnerable to connect with our feelings authentically healing comes from it.

May 25:
VENUS opposes SATURN retro in CAP.
A dilemma between our sensitivity in relationships, perhaps going back to early childhood / family dynamics, and the need to step up to the occasion – perhaps set boundaries, and in general show up with self respect?
Instead of retreating into the safe shell and giving in to fear based behaviour, let’s care of our needs. Let’s be open to others about our feelings, while being the mature grown-up, and do what’s required.

June 1 / 2:
VENUS in Grand Water Trine with JUPITER retro in SCO and with NEPTUNE in PI (which are in Trine with each other on May 25).
Gentleness allows us to go deeper to the hidden, camouflaged layers of our feelings, have bigger awareness, allow for transformation, and release – with Love.

June 5:
VENUS opposes PLUTO retro and LILITH in CAP.
You might feel in an all-or-nothing mode, esp. in relationships that meet your core – and shadow.
Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most – and to the Heart & Soul?

Much Love for the Venusian Infusion – Be nurtured by the Water!

VENUS crosses the ‘SPHINX Point’, into VIRGO :: Inner Sacred Feminine in the Temple of Wholeness

19 Sep

VENUS crosses the ‘Sphinx Point’, and enters VIRGO today Sept 19 (day of the VIRGO New Moon 2017), for a journey in the sign of the Sacred Feminine until Oct 14.

VENUS in VIR will soon (can you feel it already?)

  • oppose NEPTUNE retro in PI on Sept 29.
  • Then, VENUS will go into grounding trine with stationary PLUTO in CAP on Oct 3
  • meet and pass MARS in VIR on Oct 5 (also the Full Moon day!),
  • square SATURN in SAG on Oct 8,
  • oppose CHIRON  retro in PI on Oct 10 (when JUPITER enters SCO), and
  • quincunx URANUS retro in AR on Oct 11.

 

Johfra Bosschart: Virgo, Ruled by Mercury

 

Inner Sacred Feminine in the Temple of Wholeness

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

 

venus_planetSphinx

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Neptune

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

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

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

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

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

 

Hubble Mars

On October 5, VENUS will catch up, unite with MARS in VIRGO, and finally pass ‘him’.
MARS has been ahead of VENUS in the last months. VENUS in ARIES almost passed MARS early March, but then went retro to RE-new herself and her inner ‘values and vows’ in PISCES. In the meantime the ‘Warrior Planet’ MARS stormed ahead… and we’ve seen a lot of evidence for its presence. Not much evidence for the fine art of diplomacy…

VENUS is coming though… in the sign of the Sacred Feminine, VIRGO, where ‘she’ meets and passes MARS. 

Oct 5 will be also the day of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon! Balance (FM) and Union (VENUS / MARS) of Feminine and Masculine. Calling us to show up as the Warriors of LOVE!

 

Saturn Pop

On Oct 8, VENUS in late VIR squares SATURN in late SAG:
Here we are called to discern what serves and is healthy (VIR) and to say NO (SATURN) to certain offers and directions (SAG) – esp. the ones that are too good to be true and real (SATURN in SAG), so that we can say YES to other engagement that we are aligned with (VIR).
When such a challenge arises which might feel like a rejection / limitation ask yourself: What’s the initiation here? It might feel like a test – but hey, be the tester too!

 

In ‘her’ finale in VIRGO, VENUS will oppose CHIRON retro in PISCES on Oct 10 (the day JUPITER will enter SCORPIO!), and go into quincunx with URANUS retro in ARIES on Oct 11.
‘Healing’ is at least as much about connecting in resonance, and knowing what it’s like or at least tune in, with a loving heart, as it is about ‘doing the right thing’ for the other as for oneself.  LOVE Heals!
And loving healing liberates. We’re all in this together. “You are another me”!
In Lak’ech Ala K’in! ❤

More about the JUPITER SHIFT in one of the next ASTRO~NEWS Blogs, of course.

Lots of VENUSian activations in early October!
Let’s bring LOVE to everything we do, and how we show up!

Blessings for the month with VENUS in VIRGO!
May the inner Priestess-in-Wholeness be our muse and mentor.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

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

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

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

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

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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

 

 

VENUS in CANCER (July 31 – Aug 25): Loving Gentleness – in the Intensity and Immensity of August

31 Jul
Fairie

The GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – Fairie Energy

Today July 31, VENUS moved into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until Aug 25):
Show your love through gentleness and care, and if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.

Literally being by the water and IN the water is a big draw now, and can help ‘smooth’ us out and RELAX, after sooo much airy fairy energy, with VENUS in GEMINI, buzzing around, interesting in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square CHIRON in PI and opposite SATURN in SAG showed:

Less is more, heart focus is better, letting go is ok!

Now, under VENUS in CANCER, and soon MERCURY retro (into pre-retro ‘storm’ this week) 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’ from last month that sounded good under VENUS in MERCURY ruled GEMINI.

And, hey:
Home is where the Heart is – ever so true and important, under VENUS in CANCER!
When VENUS opposes PLUTO on Aug 15 you might feel in an all-or-nothing mode. Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most?

So let’s take it easy and gentle, this month – enough intensity going on in August – see the ‘packed schedule’ below!
