VENUS in CANCER (Aug 7 – Sept 6): Loving Gentleness and Care – in the Intensity and Immensity of August

3 Aug

Sweet Greetings, dear Cosmic Friends!

GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – a Fairy vibe

Here comes a new VENUSian infusion flavour!
After Her forever (4 months, since Apr 3!) journey in GEMINI, incl. the retro phase (May 12 – June 24) where the Inner Goddess and of our true Values could get regenerated.
It’s a good time in this transition now, for a RE-view of this process.


She’s moving over the ‘Nesting Point’ / ‘Fairy Point’ into CANCER, on Friday / FreyaDay / Vendredi / Viernes / VENUSday Aug 7 – where the Love Goddess will dwell until Sept 9 – sweet Summer vibes!


And we’re enticed to stay close to home & enjoy the beauty of our nesting land – and make home a sweeter and more beautiful place.

Have you also felt very emotional (CANCER) lately – one way or another – when hearing a certain language (GEMINI)? Clues to where / with whom we feel at home, for sure…

 

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, interested in many things… Maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed and confused – a VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI thing – the alignment was on throughout May and end of July. Letting go is ok and brings Joy!

Now, with 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’ from last month that sounded good under VENUS in MERCURY ruled GEMINI.
But hey, MERCURY incl retro (June 17 – July 12) in CANCER (May 28 – Aug 4) already showed us about the fickleness of mind-emotions, and their imaginative qualities (which can be channeled well into creativity and playfulness…).

Home is where the Heart is – ever so true and important, under VENUS in CANCER!
When VENUS opposes the intense 2020 Stellium of JUPITER / PLUTO / SATURN (all retro) end of CAP, from Aug 25 – Sept 2, you might feel in an all-or-nothing mode. Or fall in love in a way you never have. Or maybe something needs to deeply change, and return to what matters most?

So let’s take it easy this month – enough intensity going on in August and early Sept – see the ‘packed schedule’ below!
VENUS in CANCER (Aug 7  – Sept 6) invites us into gentleness and tender care of our feelings and needs in it all.
Esp. when She squares CHIRON / LILITH / MARS in ARIES (Aug 16, Sept 1 / 4).

 

DSC05096

 

AUGUST into early SEPT 2020 rocks, astrologically – mostly inward, nevertheless powerfully.

Plus presently 5 – soon 6! – Planets Retro (JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS – Aug 15, CHIRON, NEPTUNE, PLUTO).
Here’s a blog post dedicated to the Retro Record Summer 2020.

 


Schedule for (‘just’) the HIGHLIGHTS of AUGUST into early SEPT (while VENUS is in CANCER) – so many!
Almost daily Show Time of quite dramatic alignments.

From VENUS’s perspective in CANCER:
“Always good to remember: Tender caring gentleness and LOVE helps us in the ‘storm’ – and raises the vibration from which we experience the ‘events’!”

 

AUG 1
LAMMAS
/ LUGHNASAD – Mid LEO / Mid-Summer!

 

AUG 3
Mid-AQ – Mid-LEO Full Moon (Aug 3) in T-square with Uranus stationary in TAU  –
Love & Liberté

 

AUG 4
MERCURY comes out of a looong phase (since May 28) in CANCER, and enters LEO.
Speak from the Heart. Roar as needed. Show yourself & show your Colours.
MARS in AR squares JUPITER retro in CAP
(again Oct 18 when MARS will be retro and JUPITER direct again).
Clash between the Warrior of NOW and what one ‘ought to do’?
No need to take on what’s redundant (let alone guilt & blame).

 

AUG 7
VENUS comes out of a looong phase (since Apr 4) in GEMINI, and enters CANCER.
Loving Gentleness and Care

 

AUG 8
08/08 ‘Lion’s Gate’ and Sirius Rising
Re-Birth of the Spiritual Sun

 

AUG 9
MARS in ARIES meets LILITH.
They link up / are in close clinch for the rest of Aug and Sept, and meet once more on Sept 23.
On Sept 9, MARS goes retro – hence end of Aug to mid-Sept is a very Martian phase too.
Wild and ferocious. Good to tune into primal energies – and give them a save outlet (yep, VENUS in CANCER is all for that too).

 

AUG 11 – 13
Perseid METEOR Showers

 

AUG 13
MARS in ARIES squares PLUTO retro in CAP (again Oct 9 when MARS will be retro and PLUTO stationary-direct again, and Dec 23 when MARS & PLUTO will be direct).
Acute fights for Power / power trips? What’s most effective and sustaining, and calls for action now?!
Or asserting what ‘simply’ needs to be done, with deep Soul Power.
So important for all of us Humans to activate not just our inner Hero/ine and show up / stand up, but to activate our ‘SuperPowers’ / connect with the Power of Soul & Essence / Core – ultimate & unalienable source of Power and Guidance (PLUTO – JUPITER).

 

AUG 15
URANUS in TAURUS goes retrograde (until Jan 14).
Surprises, breakthroughs, unexpected twists and turns. Embody Freedom from within.
MARS in ARIES meets his ‘discordant’ sister ERIS
…who has a very slow orbit and has been in ARIES for most of the 20th century – again on Oct 6 when MARS will be retro, and on Dec 22 when MARS is out of retro.
Disruptive energies – find safe active outlets, don’t take it out on each other, and start waging unnecessary wars.

 

AUG 16
Ahhh – finally, VENUS, after ‘nesting’ in CANCER for a week, is having her first transit alignment:

VENUS in CAN (after the MOON the day before) squares CHIRON retro in ARIES.
Gently tend to early wounds which might flare up again through various triggers. Find safety and nurturing within yourself.

 

AUG 17
MERCURY in LEO meets & passes the SUN – superior conjunction.
Uhhh, MERCURY aka the Mind is leading the show again (wasn’t it just MERCURY retro to help reverse that…?!).
LEO’s great for creative show time and fun yet the ego-mind can easily hijack the situation. Yes, you ARE special – and so is everyone else! 🙂

 

AUG 18
New Moon end of LEO – close to the Sphinx Point
New Self Awareness. Put your Creativity, Love, and Passion into Service.
VENUS in CAN in sextile with stat. / retro URANUS in TAU (ruled by VENUS).
A sweet creative energy – freedom & joy start at home – and it’s good to break those oh-so-sweet(?) habits.

 

AUG 19
MERCURY moves out of LEO and over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIRGO (which it rules) – for a short 2 1/2 week period until Sept 5.
Cultivating mindfulness and inner awareness. Don’t get too fuzzy and critical of self and others – fault can always be found.
Channel the energy into taking care of self esp. wellness, and organizing things… what works and is practical?
Also a great energy for school start.
Yes, we are aware of what that means…

 

AUG 22
The SUN enters VIRGO
Self Awareness, and Serving from the Heart.

 

AUG 24
MARS in ARIES squares SATURN retro in CAP – both planets in their ruled signs.
Assertion / conflict and resistance? Clashing of gas and break? Go and stop?
SATURN is presently retro – forces of oooold are ending. Yet MARS also goes retro on Sept 9 – the end of old warfare.
Let’s go for what is alive, rather than putting so much energy into fighting the old.

 

AUG 25 / 27 / 30 / SEPT 2 – almost the grand finale of VENUS in CANCER.
VENUS in CAN opposes JUPITER / PLUTO / SATURN, all retro end of CAP, and goes into Water Trine with NEPTUNE retro in PISCES (Aug 27).
You might feel in an all-or-nothing mode. Or fall in love in a way you never have. Or maybe something needs to deeply change, and return to what matters most? What’s a wise choice from the Heart? Stay connected, in tune with the Universe, and in open, receptive, fluid mode. Waters of Love re-shape the hard rocks of resistance.

 

SEPT 1 / 4
VENUS end of CANCER in square with LILITH and stationary MARS (to go retro on Sept 9) end of ARIES.
Passionate-wild and sweet-soft energies. Good thing VENUS can help smooth out the fierce stationary MARS Warrior and wild LILITH.  And hey – also a good energy for home projects, art and creativity of all kinds – as VENUS gets ready to show up in LEO.

 

SEPT 6
That’s IT – VENUS enters LEO (until Oct 2) – Show Time, Goddess Time.

 

Blessings for Venusian gentleness this month and beyond!

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 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!

 

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

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 15 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic. The intimate Astro hubs (max 6 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 Retro 2020 (May 12 – June 24) – all in GEM: Regeneration of the Inner Love Goddess

8 May

The VENUS Retro ‘Season’ is almost ON!

Birth of Venus, by S. Botticelli

 

And here’s a nice multi-faceted (a la GEM) piece for your reading pleasure – enJoy! 

As I’m welcoming the VENUSian Turning Point, I’m reflecting on the patterns and experiences of  previous VENUS Retro phases (every 18 months). There’s an inner thread between VENUS Retro phases.

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

If you’d like to tune in too, and find clues, here’s the line-up of the last 5 VENUS Retro phases, since the BIG one – the ‘VENUS Passage’ over the Sun disk in early June 2012 – remember?   

May 15 – June 27, 2012 – in GEMINI

Dec 21, 2013 – Jan 31, 2014 – in CAP

July 25 – Sept 6, 2015 – in LEO

March 4 – Apr 15, 2017 – in AR / PI

Oct 5 – Nov 16, 2018 – in LIBRA / SCO

May 12 – June 24, 2020 – in GEMINI

The one this year will move over approx the same segment of the Zodiac as in 2012 – a VENUS Retro ‘Return’.

Venus – Moon Evening Dance – April 2020

Magnetic VENUS has been our faithful ‘Evening Star’ companion for the last months – so beautiful to behold.

Here’s a pic of Her (faint light on the bottom right – due to my reg. little camera), not far from the waxing MOON.

VENUS is going ‘into the Underworld’ now (will be invisible as She approaches on retro course the SUN) to regenerate herself as the Morning Star!

Astrologically, VENUS is now stationary in late GEM, and will go retro (inward-backward) on May 12 (until June 24).

This cosmic process will help us shift from being so other-oriented (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to find our Intrinsic Value, fall in Love with ourselves, and naturally attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!

 

Ever since She entered GEMINI in early April the Retro themes are already showing up:
In the pre- and first half of retro phase, it’s about noticing which old themes in relationships (LIBRA undertone of the ‘Evening Star’ VENUS) come up.
Maybe literally with partners on all levels – 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.

 

The VENUS retro phase happens only every 18 months.


The last one was Oct 5 – Nov 16, 2018 in LIBRA – SCO – perhaps you remember VENUS retro themes you were experiencing and learning then and which are rippling over again – esp. if they’re unresolved?

A very relevant event in public at that time was the Dr. Blasey Ford – Judge Kauvenaugh investigation / sexual assault allegations going back (VENUS retro) to their high school years in the 1980’s. Even though, Dr. Ford gave at a public hearing gave a testimony that couldn’t be refuted, and two other witnesses also came forward accusing J. K. of past sexual assaults, the Senate voted on Oct 6 (day after VENUS went retro in SCO) 50:48 to confirm Judge K.’s nomination to the Supreme Court – a very controversial ‘Tipping Point’ decision. The whole event in the VENUS (mostly pre)retro phase had clearly to do with LIBRA (law / judge) – SCORPIO (until then hidden / covered sexual assault).    

Wondering whether during this upcoming VENUS retro phase in GEMINI we’ll see another public scandal that has to do with relationships from the past, in this case prob. rather related to information / education / science / trade (GEMINI).   

 

VENUS goes retro at 22º GEMINI – super close to U.S. President Trump’s SUN / URANUS.
Plus, it’s exact to the degree on the U.S. MARS in the 7th House.
Obviously, the U.S. are very affected by this VENUS retro.

We already see around the world SO much debate (GEM) and controversy (MARS) re: the present virus policy. Freedom of speech (GEM) is critically important (SATURN in AQ). But also important to notice what we’re attracted to and give energy / thereby feed even what we don’t want to see (Laws of Attraction).


And – a la VENUS retro – there’s likely another historic / hidden (retro) background that the public doesn’t know about yet.
I’d be surprised if we were NOT surprised by what will be presented under VENUS retro – quite possibly through the Feminine.

A variety of scientists and journalists (GEM / MARS in AQ) are coming forward…
Which scientists and journalists and other public voices can we really trust (GEM – SAG – where the Nodal Axis will shift into early June)?!
I’d say, a prerequisite is that they’re genuinely curious, and invite / are themselves available for open discourse.  

 

With VENUS ‘cruising’ now in GEMINI, the inner and outer Feminine are VERY communicado – interested in / attracted to learning and discussing with people – maybe a bit scattered too, since SO much is interesting to find out about.

A lot of information is out on the internet, and people are attracted to, esp. re: the Covid Crisis.
Controversial Covid discussions happen.
Which is totally ok – if it’s about information / discussion / allowing for questioning (GEM), rather than judgment / attack / shutting down the other/s, from a place of being ‘on the right side’ / entitled to represent ‘the Truth’ (a la CAP / SAG where the Lunar South Node is now and which shows more and more how we loose energy over this).
Thank goodness JUPITER & PLUTO in CAP are also already or soon on retro course, to dismantle the shadow and support big REveal.

 

On a lighter note:
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 or in ‘real life’)?

Raises the vibrations, is a welcome distraction from the virus distress, plus: Learning connects.
Return to lightness and openness to listen and learn, says VENUS soon retro in GEMINI.

With VENUS presently slowing down (‘she”s already in pre-retro stationary ‘storm’ since end of April) you might have noticed early VENUS retro symptoms and premonitions:

  • Have loved ones and lovers ‘from the past’ / from ‘past’ relationships (even from different time lines) RE-connected with you, or ‘just’ shown up in your life? 
    How about women from the past – esp. relating to the House where GEM is in your chart?
  • Have you been RE-minded of, and attracted to RE-connect with them?
  • Are you drawn to connect through starting a new conversation (GEM), but so many things are ‘in the way’ / old agenda needs to be cleared first???? VENUS retro can show you what that is.
  • Are you called to read and learn about something you love but those books have been left sitting on the shelf / courses in your folders? Time to pull them out – who knows what the read and learning re-kindles… Puzzle pieces might come together, dots might be connected in your understanding, old and almost forgotten questions might be answered.

 

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?
As mentioned – 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.

Overall, with VENUS in GEMINI, we learn about Love & Values.
It also affects money (as an expression of values) – a redefinition.

 

Anahata – Heart Chakra Yantra

And VENUS Retro is 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 literally strengthens our immune system.
Let’s breathe this IN & offer it out – aaahhhh!

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

 

As in every VENUS retro phase, this will be also a checking in on, and evaluating of our patterns in relationships: How, whom, and what we desire and attract, and what’s really a good harmonious match for us.
Even more so, it’s a RE-newal of Self-Love, and Self-Value, and a RE-alignment of whom, what, and how we attract, with Consciousness & Spirit (the SUN) leading – vs giving in to what looks / sounds attractive from the outside / onset.

 

VENUS is pre-, during, and post-retro for a long time in GEMINI (started Apr 3, and goes until Aug 7).
There are so many ways of seeing things. GEMINI celebrates diversity, and learning from one another.

 

The Lunar North Node will also enter GEMINI (and the South Node SAG), on June 5 – day of the SAG – GEM Full Moon / Partial Lunar Eclipse, and just 2 days after the ‘New VENUS’ (as ‘she’ aligns with the SUN, on June 3, and a new cycle begins).
This Nodal dynamic will be on for 1 1/2 years, until Jan 2021.

Nodal themes on this karmic axis will be:
To question (GEM) the old story / agenda / narrative / ‘truth’ (SAG), to inquire and learn rather than assume and ‘know’, and not to believe everything you (or even: they) think.

More about the Nodal shift closer to the date.

U.S. President Trump will have his Nodal Return this year (every 18 – 19 years), AND he was even born under a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in SAG / SN – GEM / NN (which we’ll have on June 5).
I’d be surprised if he wasn’t up to something / the Universe hasn’t something in store for him.

 

 

 

The double effect of NN in GEM & New VENUS in GEM supports and welcomes attracting new Alchemy.

As the image of the Feminine – Masculine ‘Phoenix Twins’ below shows, the dualities are being alchemized in GEM.
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 / WHO symbol of the staff with only one serpent… might be a bit one-sided – got an idea on which side? 
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. Interchange and alchemical union of ‘opposites’ – Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

When VENUS has reached the half-way point of ‘her’ retro journey on June 3, ‘she’ meets the SUN – a ‘NEW VENUS’ is born!
A turning point where we have (hopefully!) come back to ourselves, let Spirit  (the SUN) lead, and attractions that are aligned with the Consciousness of Alchemy (GEM) can follow.

 

Esp. if you have SUN, MOON, PLANETS, or AC in GEMINI…
this VENUS retro phase will be a gift for you, to transform deep old patterns about attraction and relationship – in relation to those Planetary Archetypes.
Fall in Love with yourSelf, with Life, with Spirit / Consciousness, while naturally magnetizing from that place!

For all of us:
In the area of life related to GEMINI in our charts (esp. House wise – or via our Planetary Archetypes in GEM) we’re invited to go inwards-backwards, release & regenerate, and from there to attract in a new way.

 

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.

 

VENUS retro in GEMINI in your… House –

Transforming Co-Dependency

Voyager Tarot card VI Lovers – also relates to GEMINI

 

As mentioned, the purpose of VENUS retro is to transform from the recent Evening Star quality (LIBRA undertone) into the Morning Star (TAURUS undertone) / Goddess of the Dawn.

In the retro phase it’s time to release esp. co-dependency – and embrace ambiguity, as the Voyager Tarot card Lovers says. 

We tend to project denied parts of ourselves onto another, and re-attract them as a ‘polarity’ because of the charge and ‘contract’ we hold. 

Time to retreat from the projection game, to alchemize inner polarities, and direct the energy into so(u)lar conscious self radiating Being and Loving (SUN / VENUS), full of natural self love (‘Morning Star’ TAURUS undertone), like Nature in Spring.   

 

RE-posting this piece (from a previous VENUS Retro post) – still and timelessly relevant:
Discovering the RElationship ‘Story Line’ of Co-dependences, and REleasing it with Love!

I believe this is an excerpt from an interview that Gwyneth Paltrow did with Gay & Katie Hendricks.
It found me again, under VENUS pre-retro:     

 

What is a conscious relationship?

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

  • Co-dependent:
    “You have secrets. There are things you have done or not done that you are hiding from another person.”

    Conscious:
    “You have no secrets. You reveal rather than conceal. You understand that hiding your feelings causes you to withdraw from intimacy, and you take every opportunity to speak honestly about your feelings.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

So much Love for YOUR Journey with VENUS Retro!

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!

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
    Apr 7 – May 7: Wide Air Trine to MARS in PI while VENUS is pre-retro
    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
    Apr 12: Sextile while VENUS is pre-retro
    June 3: Sextile while VENUS is retro
    July 27: Sextile while VENUS is post-retro

 

  • 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.

VENUS freshly in GEMINI in your… House

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House
Your Values, your Body, 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

11th House

And if you’re interested in learning more about the gifts of VENUS now and for a looong time – until mid-Summer in GEMINI let’s set up an Astro Sample Session focused on VENUS!
Of course we could also extend it to a full menu session that puts it all into context, and supports you in being in alignment with the cosmic Alchemy.
Check out the Cosmic Relief Offer (below) – on for the time being.

 

Much Love and Cosmic Blessings to YOU!

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.

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

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 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!

 

 

SAG New Moon (Nov 26) – Cultivating the Sparks of Light

25 Nov

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

The early SAG NEW MOON is coming tomorrow Nov 26 – yayyy! 

She ignites our Heart Light with Phoenix Fire that turns into Solstice Light!
This lunar phase reaches exactly to Christmas – the next New Moon will be the Partial Solar Eclipse(!) in early CAP on Dec 25!

 

The SAG New Moon catalyzes VENUS’s (today Nov 25) and even JUPITER’s (Dec 2) ‘ascent’ into CAP!

Plus, the New Moon brings  NEPTUNE’s turnaround in mid-PISCES from retro (since June 21) to direct on Wed Nov 27!
This is quite the NEPTUNE week…
We may feel overwhelmed, drained, depleted, or like turning to escapes.
Lifting (SAG) the vibe
would be to truly relax, and find true connection from within, and with others where things flow… notice: That actually gives you energy! 
Also very Neptunian Medicine:
Music, dance, Yoga, meditation (not just as a temporary relief / escape but as a practice that clears and connects).

 

When it comes to SCO, it’s true, we’re still burning off a LOT, esp. in the mental-emotional realm – MERCURY in SCO is JUST today coming out of its post-retro ‘storm’, and phases out in its post-retro ‘shadow’ by Dec 7 (yep, still some patience please!) by Dec 7, before finally, finally entering SAG on Dec 9.
And lots of energetics of hidden, repressed anger and frustration round power issues are also processing and burning off, with MARS in SCO (well, that one’s on until Jan 3). Move it, move it, Babes!
Good thing is: This phase has gotten us to the bottom of things, from where real change is possible.

If you’ve been in an emotional crisis lately, where a LOT of shadowy stuff came up that you didn’t even feel comfortable to share, welcome to the club!
Crisis stirs things up, ideally moves it out of the system, and precedes new growth and evolution. 
The time is ripe.
And the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon points to help showing up along the way.

 

We’re also (since MARS entered SCO on Nov 18) in another phase (as extensively in the Summer) without Planets in the AIR Element, until Dec 19 when VENUS enters AQ.
Which can have effects of feeling stifled, claustrophobic, out of touch with ideas and communication, and when they happen it’s not easy to be detached and objective.
On the other hand, it’s an opportunity to tap into and practice no-Mind / emptiness of the Mind, and experience stillness within, rather than having the inner commentator involved, and being engaged in chatter, inside and out.

 

Voila, here’s the

‘Birth Chart’ of the SAG New Moon:

Early SAG where the New Moon will be (4º 02′) has an ARIES undertone (according to a real cool decanates system that helps describe sub-vibes of areas in the Zodiac – I might teach it again in the New Year – let me know if you’re interested!).
Freshness & Freedom is the flavour.

Spoke with two friends individually today, and we all voiced how we welcome the Rising Energy with the New Moon.

She ignites a Spark of Heart Fire that guides and carries us through the darkness of the longest nights. SAG deeply trusts and knows: The Light will return, and walks with anticipation and gratitude.

Baby Blessings are bestowed with the New Moon.

OH, and what a New Moon Blessing for the Thanksgiving week!

 

Let’s see what Gifts are offered by the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 

The New MOON will be at 4º 02′ SAG.

4º SAG says:

Learning to Walk – Pixabay Photo by Caleb Oquendo

“A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF HIS PARENTS.

KEYNOTE: The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth.

At an early stage in its development, every living organism must make an attempt to overcome the power of gravitation, or rather to learn to use it in order to fulfill the purpose of its life. This implies passing through a critical state of growth — growth in freedom, potency and individuality, inasmuch as “walking” always symbolizes self-induced progress. In such a crisis the individual is not left alone. Some more evolved Power and Intelligence watches, encourages and gives examples to be followed.

As usual, this fourth stage symbol in the forty-ninth sequence gives a hint of technique. It presents a picture of the conditions under which a RESOLUTION OF CONFLICT can be ensured, whether at the organic, the personal or the super-personal level of unfoldment.”

 

What a well-fitting symbol – after SCORPIO crises and Martian conflicts – for the early SAG energy with ARIES undertone…! We came through this… a sense of RE-Birth is in the Air.
Baby Steps & Baby Blessings for walking forward-upward-onward again!

Growth (SAG) happens, after having perhaps fallen down / being pulled into some Scorpionic ditches – which yet showed us the bottom and core of things where we have been in self sabotage and given energy & power away (as in: Shadow Projection, Fear, Shame, Blame, you name it…). 
Not to say we ‘should have known better’ and ‘avoided those Scorpionic traps’. The process hopefully(!) served its purpose to strengthen us – an immunization.
If not quite yet – it’s all organic, not a linear check list – MERCURY now in post-retro ‘Shadow’ in SCO until early Dec, and MARS still in SCO until Jan 3 help us bravely move things through, with the guiding Light of the SAG SUN.

 

Love how the Sabian Symbol suggests, instinctively (SCO) trusting (SAG) in Higher Powers guiding and protecting us. We can experience its evidence through signs, and how we spontaneously feel in their presence (lighter, freer, inspired, uplifted, joyful?).
The body-mind-spirit is honest & direct.

 

Plus, I’d like to add:
Ask pure Source and Protective Guides like Angels for help too (no fancy invocation words, directly, simply in your own voice from the Heart). The SAG ‘arrow’ is also an intention, a vision, and a prayer.
A sign for their pure vibration is that they don’t interfere with free will. They respond to being asked and invoked.

The New Moon in early SAG comes in a beautiful Fire / Spirit Trine with CHIRON (prominent in December!) in early ARIES – Healing & Teaching Medicine lays in stepping out newly-authentically (ARIES) and stepping forward (SAG) on the Path to the Light.

The evidence of Higher and Soul Powers will come through ever more strongly as we’re approaching the epic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12 – which also marks the Old Empire Expiring.
Both Planets already approach their union (in a 37-38 year cycle) – as seen in the chart.
Hence this SAG New Moon, and even more so the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Christmas Day(!), catalyzes that epic event to help us step up (CAP) into embodying our Soul Power.

 

VENUS has JUST today Nov 25 moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP
We’re attracted to – and maybe have been waiting for a loong time – for what’s rock-solid, mature, and timeless. JUPITER follows in a week, on Dec 2! To inspire us for Building for the Highest Good.

Literally in relationships and with any partnership in compatibility, once a grounded “That’s IT” sense is established the energy builds, and together / in synergy something solid & purposeful can be built that’s a model for others too.
Clearly a great ‘resource’ to make the World a Better Place.

In the New Moon chart, you can see both in close union wrapping round the Integrity Point – SAG-to-CAP cusp. Love for, and Attraction from Integrity is clearly catalyzed by the SAG New Moon!

 

New Seeds of Love & Growth are planted – overseen by Higher Powers.
All the Earthy CAP energy helps us with being cultivators of / in Integrity.

Blessings for Cultivating and Walking with the Sparks of Light! ♐️

Melanie

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?

Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

 

Or take me up on my upcoming Treat Time Offer (Dec 1 – 31):

VENUS crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG on Nov 1: Love A-Rising, Walking in Truth, Freedom, and Beauty

26 Oct

Dear Astro~News Friend, and Cosmic Co-Explorer,

Here she comes!
VENUS moves out of SCORPIO, spreads her wings, and rises in SAG!

VENUS the Love Goddess has been in her yearly ‘Underworld Journey’ in SCORPIO since Oct 8. SCO isn’t exactly one of her fave places to dwell in, since it’s polar opposite of yummy sensual TAURUS which VENUS rules – buuut, there’s beauty in the deep & dark…
Hope you’ve channeled the energy into Love for Life’s Magic and Mystery, and into full-on regeneration of the Inner Divine Feminine in her Power! She’s getting ready to Rise like a Phoenix!

VENUS will be in fiery & inspired SAG until Nov 25 – ushering in the SAG New Moon on Nov 26.

VENUS in SAG looooves Truth and Freedom.
Truth & Love shall set us Free!

The BIG news & grand finale is her meet-up with benevolent JUPITER at the end of SAG (the Galactic Centre!) on Nov 24.
Lots of Opportunities to attract from the Heart of Gratitude, Generosity, and Abundance – which are all expressions of LOVE – that’s where it’s at, best place to aim for and from!

 

‘Dates’ of VENUS in SAG (Nov 1 – 25) with other Planetary ‘Players’:

They’re concentrated round Nov 3 – 5, 19 – 21, and of course: Nov 24


NOV 3
(building up a few days prior)
VENUS in early SAG in Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in early ARIES.
Putting out loving Heart arrows & truth bombs brings us right into the moment. Being fresh & free, authentic & lovingly truthful with one another is healing.

NOV 4 (also with build-up time)
VENUS in early SAG in quincunx with URANUS retro in early TAURUS (ruled by VENUS).
Being out and about, and free from attachment to location and ownership.
EmBody Freedom!

 

NOV 5
The MOON in early PISCES squares VENUS in early SAG.
In Wonderland. Magical Mystery Tour.
Watch a movie… disappear in a book… dance, play music, dream, envision.
Life IS a movie and a trip (M-r in SCORPIO would agree…).

 

NOV 8
The MOON in early ARIES in Fire Trine with early VENUS.
Adventure calling. Make a move.
Try on / out something new, and see how you feel in / about it.

 

NOV 14 
VENUS in mid SAG squares NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave’) retro / stationary in mid PISCES.
Travelling on your ‘Dream Boat’? Living & Loving in LaLaLand? ONEderful for music, dance, romance.
This transit can ignite big hopes and dreams, and allow us to be open to attract through uplifted vibrations, to receive blessings and see miracles.
A low vibration would be to (buy into) over promise, esp. in matters of Love but also values – with illusions / delusions / disappointments as a result.
Thankfully,
CAP energy, compliments SATURN and PLUTO, helps with being realistic, grounded, and in integrity.

 

NOV 19
The MOON in LEO in Fire Trine with VENUS in SAG.
Let the good times roll, and celebrate the Day.

 

NOV 20
VENUS in SAG squares LILITH in PISCES.
Freedom to be on your Heart Journey, Freedom to be YOU.


NOV 21
The MOON in late VIR squares VENUS in late SAG.
Yeah-yeah, we need to look after things, but hey, this Heart Calling….!

 

NOV 24 – grand finale:
VENUS meets JUPITER end of SAG – in the Galactic Centre.
The big highlight of the VENUS-in-SAG journey.

If you ever play the lottery / go to the casino this is the day! Just kidding (maybe not)!
Massive attractions (doesn’t have to be a ‘good thing’) of what you focus on, and where you come from. Big indulgence / going for riches?
Or igniting the Heart Fire and being super generous with your L.O.V.E!
The Goddess is with You and in You!

 

NOV 25
VENUS enters CAP (until Dec 19) – where she’ll meet SATURN on Dec 11 (also Full Moon day), and PLUTO on Friday Dec 13(!).
Rock-solid and soulful LOVE that’s real. Power to Love.

ASTRO CONSULTS

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.

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…

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!

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’…

You’re welcome to join us!

 

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