VENUS enters PISCES on Feb 10 (until March 6): Love IS.

8 Feb

Birth of Venus – Botticelli

 

From Feb 10 on, VENUS will make her yearly ‘appearance’ (or rather: sublimation) in PISCES where ‘she’ is traditionally ‘exalted’:

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it ‘unconditional love’ / All IS Love – All IS Love’.  
Yet, this vibration can lead us mere mortals also into confusion, disillusionment, unrequited scenarios, out of victim consciousness, or / and due to projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal (or having to escape the pedestal another puts us on). 
VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment… 

This goes for any kind of attractions, not just ‘special Valentine’s’.

Here’s a Preview for all the ‘DATES’ VENUS in PISCES (Feb 10 – March 6, 2018) will have – many!

Feb 15:
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a Valentine’s commitment?
Not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

Feb 16:
VENUS in PI is met by the PI MOON.
Can it be sweeter than this… (except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the movie with a real person.
And swim away from confusing / overwhelming ‘media showers’.

Feb 17 & 18:
MERCURY and the SUN follow VENUS into PISCES – and start a very PISCEAN season, until mid-March.
Surf the Waves, and Go with the Flow. Be open, connect, and receive.

Feb 21: 
VENUS in PI meets (her ‘higher octave’) NEPTUNE.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.

Feb 25:
VENUS in PI square MARS in SAG.
Sounds like a sweet & adventurous love affair / romance novel to me… (you name it).

Feb 27:
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

March 1:
VENUS in PI trine JUPITER in SCO.
Surrender, and you’re IN it.

March 4:
VENUS in PI conj. MERCURY and CHIRON.
Commune and connect, with and beyond words, poetry, and music. Be vulnerable, and open for the healing.


Blessings for this sublime month with VENUS in PISCES!

VENUS enters CAP (Dec 24/25 – Jan 17): A Love That Lasts…

24 Dec

Love and Gratitude for the ground we stand on! 

Over Christmas, it’s VENUS’s term, to settle from her Sagittarian running around and frolic….

To cross the ‘Integrity Point’, join the CAP crew of the SUN, SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO, and turn rock-steady. 

Time to appreciate and enjoy the wintry calm, traditions of old, and lasting relationships with family and friends.

Quality over quantity, says VENUS in CAP.
Simple pleasures and timeless beauty attract.

And relationships benefit from / require maturity.

 

Also a good time to activate business and career relevant relationships, to provide and build something significant that the world and this time needs.

CAP is happiest when on purpose…!

 

 

Mountain Joy in Switzerland

VENUS will make a few contacts with the CAP Planets during ‘her’ residence there:

DEC 25: VENUS meets SATURN.
Christmas engagement anyone? Rock-solid commitments favoured – when in Integrity.

VENUS, freshly in CAP, passes good ole SATURN yesterday – yep, Christmas Day.
The Ringed One…
In a Ring of out-of-Integrity / outgrown sugar coated obligations, expectations, obli-gifts, you name it….?
More noticeable this year, as SATURN just entered CAP to give us (3 years of) reality checks that might appear harsh and cold but also show where ‘been there / done that land’ is, and where we stand.
In Family Constellation practice, what comes up sometimes as a Medicine when we’ve burdened ourselves with too much of other people’s (esp. family and even unknown ancestors) stuff that we still carry:
We only take the Love, and give everything else back with Love – to them, to the Universe, to where it can be recycled back into… L.O.V.E.

So, here we go, VENUS – SATURN Holy Days. 
Only Love is Real.
And sometimes we have to say NO to what’s dressed-up as Love, to connect with, and commit to (yay, Ringed One!) LOVE that IS. 

DEC 29: VENUS meets LILITH.
So yeah, relationships gotta be in intrinsic Integrity (not based on ‘shoulds’ or obligations). LILITH sanctions the simple & good, and gets you out of everything else.

JAN 8: VENUS meets the SUN.
Lasting quality rocks. Go for best.

JAN 9: SUN / VENUS / PLUTO Union in CAP.
Whoa – serious deep Soul Union material.
What’s LOVE in its core?
Also an excellent time to offer something life changing to the world (can be quite simple) – because you can.

 

Blessings for the Holiday Season – renewed traditions, and new traditions-in-Integrity rock!

VENUS in SCO (Nov 7 – Dec 1): How deep is your Love?

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 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. 

VENUS will join JUPITER in SCO on Nov 13.
JUPITER will be actually unaspected until then (no connection with another planet, except for MOON activations)!

Can be a double-edged sword…
Even though, VENUS – JUPITER is a wonderful connection (a la grand wedding etc), in SCO it’s not all Roses (and definitely thorns involved).

It’s good to raise awareness with VENUS / JUPITER, round:
What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
What are your soul agreements?
What is your intimacy based on?
What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now? Perhaps to outgrow it?

Tuning into the trine from VENUS to (‘her higher octave’) NEPTUNE, on Nov 16 (together with a SUN – CHIRON trine the same day) can be an oasis in the desert, and a truly magnificent, magical gift. For some people also a ‘grand escape’ into addictions that draw you in and suck your energy.
The MOON will be in SCO too then, uniting with VENUS on Nov 17 (once a month). Together they invite into sweet, intimate vibrations.
We’ll also do our next Astro~EmBODYment on Nov 16 – what an Astrology ‘field’ for it! You and your friends are most welcome to join us! 
No experience required. RSVP.

 

How’s it going so far, with diving into the Alchemy?
Could you use support and perspective?

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10/10 – 11/11, 2017), where we access your astrological map plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, to go into themes like :
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

Friday the 13th with VENUS going from VIRGO into LIBRA (on Oct 14): Divine Feminine Calling…

13 Oct

Expecting a dramatic spooky story, apropos Friday the 13th, JUPITER now in SCORPIO, and the MOON in LEO?
Well, it’s your choice… so many ways of perceiving ‘reality’ and the Archetypes.

I’d rather say (and suppose SATURN and LILITH in late SAG support my case):
It’s time to drop and outgrow old, limiting beliefs, agendas, and stories!

For records, this is the second (and last) Friday the 13th this year. # 1 was in January.

Friday the 13th is not what the superstitious world would want us believe…
I’ll roll that out in a bit.

Let’s start with VENUS
Why? To be revealed in a bit.

 

How’s it going, with VENUS in VIRGO (since Sept 19)?

Have you been clearing your Inner Temple?
Have you been honouring the inner and outer Feminine?
Have you become aware about ‘issues’, and found ‘remedies and recipes’?
Do you feel more self sufficient perhaps? Whole and complete, ‘perfect’ as you ARE…

 

4 R

Virgo and Mercury, by Johfra Bosschart

 

VIRGO is the astrological vibration of the Sacred Feminine and Priestess Archetype.

Hope you’ve been able over the last month to honour your work, your practice, your body, and to  align more fully with what’s healthy, what works for you, and how you can be in your ‘temple of service’.
VIRGO is so self-contained (and has sometimes – often! – a hard time asking for help, and being open to receive). VENUS is traditionally not well placed in VIRGO since it’s the d.i.y. mode isn’t so conducive to attracting partners, more to working and being in service to others, being busy and often concerned about things that could ‘go wrong’. and even to dealing with inadequacy issues: SO much work-on-self to be ‘perfect’ or even ‘good enough’ – Relax, VIRGO!


Yet, when channeled into being in alignment with one’s Higher Self, VIRGO is so exquisitely and purely on purpose, bringing order into chaos, and seeing the Sacred in the ‘small’.
VIRGO comes before LIBRA: Cultivating self-awareness and self-sufficiency are prerequisites for relationships.

 

VENUS will go into LIBRA, one of ‘her’ domains (besides TAU), on Sat Oct 14 (until Nov 7).

A wonderful phase for meeting others in natural complementariness, attracting good ‘matches’, being more relationally oriented, regaining peace and balance, being drawn to beauty, arts, and culture, and to all things refined. Ahhhh!
VENUS in LIBRA is a beautiful time to bring the Sacred Feminine into relatedness – and perhaps to rebalance our lives if we’ve become too busy, hectic, anxious, and have been dealing with too many to-do’s.

 

Speaking of Sacred Feminine:
How do you hold Friday the 13th?

What’s your sense about its reputation as a ‘bad luck’ or even scary day?
What’s considered ‘scary’ might actually be sacred!

Birth of Venus (Detail) – Painting by S. Botticelli

Did you know that the Norse Goddess Freya gave Friday its name?
She is the equivalent of 
VENUS / Aphrodite, goddess of beauty, attraction, erotic pleasures, and art.

The Romans called the 6th day of the week ‘De Veneris’ (belonging to VENUS) which became Venerdi in Italian, Viernes in Spanish, and Vendredi in French.

So here’s the case for VENUS and Friday.

Just for fun, here are the 7 days of the week and their associations with planets, Sun, and Moon:

SUNday

MOONday

MARSday (Mardi, Martedi) – Tuesday relates to Tyr / Tew (Norse good of war and law – equivalent of Mars)

MERCURYday (Mercredi, Miercoles)
JUPITERday (Jeudi, Jueves) – Thursday relates to Thor (Norse good of thunder – similar to Jupiter / Zeus)

VENUSday (Vendredi, Viernes) – Fridey relates to Freya

SATURNday

 

And now, what’s with the 13?

Uhh, there is a lot of story around vilifying the number 13… do your research.
The number 13 may have been purposely vilified by the founders of patriarchal religions in the early days of Western civilization because it represented femininity. Thirteen is said to have been revered in prehistoric goddess-worshiping cultures because it corresponded to the number of lunar (menstrual) cycles in a year (13 x 28 = 364 days).

Moon Goddess

Zodiac years have 12 – 13 New Moons and / or Full Moons.
As the solar calendar triumphed over the lunar with the rise of male-dominated civilization, so did the “perfect” number 12 over the “imperfect” number 13.

The association of 13 with the feminine and lunar cycle is the MOON side of Friday the 13th.

Hence, we have a strong VENUS / MOON themed day.

Those who sowed the seeds of superstition must have been very afraid of the power of the Feminine…

Let’s celebrate, and live the Divine and Sacred Feminine!

VENUS passes MARS (Oct 5), just before the ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon: Conscious Cooperation!

4 Oct


On Oct 3, VENUS in VIR, just ‘behind’ MARS, went into Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP: 

With all the violence and aggression in this world: 
Love is THE SuperPower! ❤

 

Tomorrow Oct 5, VENUS will catch up, unite with, and finally pass MARS in VIRGO!

Greek Vase with Ares (Mars) on one side…

 

MARS has been ahead of VENUS since Spring 2016, and we’ve seen the effects of a MARS driven world….

VENUS in (MARS ruled) ARIES almost passed MARS early March this year (when a lot of Women Warriors stepped up against chauvinism, esp. in and inspired by the U.S.
But then, VENUS  went retro to RE-new herself and her inner values in spiritual and unifying PISCES, while some of the peace loving energy might have gone passive and giving up and feeling powerless facing ‘what is’.
Yet there’s been a powerful movement and there are forces that have been holding space energetically for Peace and Love in the ‘invisible realm’ all along, emerging in us and through us when we act with the Power of Love.

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…

…and Aphrodite (Venus) on the other side.

 

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

Leaving behind outmoded and destructive confrontation (MARS).


May the world, humanity, and everyone of us come back into integrity and alignment (VIR), with right relationship/s and in cooperation (VENUS)!

 


VENUS goes into square with SATURN on Oct 8, and MARS on Oct 9:
Specifics and ‘details’ can make things complicated and create conflict and stagnation – or just need to be ‘ironed out’ to open the path for the YES.

VENUS will go into opposition with CHIRON in PISCES on Oct 10, and MARS on Oct 15:
Integrity in adaptive Fluidity can be the Medicine.

 

Let’s see what the SABIAN SYMBOL for the VENUS / MARS conjunction tells us:

VIRGO 20°:
A CARAVAN OF CARS HEADED TO THE WEST COAST.

KEYNOTE:
The need of cooperative effort in reaching any “New World” of experience.

It is difficult to know, from the original formulation of the clairvoyant’s vision, the type of caravan of cars that was visualized; what seems to be clearly implied is a process in which a group of persons are journeying together — thus linking their consciousnesses and energies (the “car” symbol) — in order to safely reach the goal of destiny. Here there is no longer any sense of competition, but an ordered and structured endeavor.

At this last stage of the five-fold sequence the past is entirely left behind; humans cooperate in the great “adventure in consciousness” in a TOTALIZATION OF PURPOSE AND EFFORT.”

 

Tomorrow 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, in Conscious Cooperation!

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

Neptune, as seen by the Hubble Telescope

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.

 

Pluto Heartjpg

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

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

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.

VENUS in LEO (Aug 25 – Sept 19) – Shine, Celebrate, Show your Mane, and: LIVE LIFE LOVINGLY!

26 Aug

What a weekend!

SATURN direct now, passed by LILITH.
MERCURY retro half-way Point of Enlightening Insight.

And:
Lady VENUS has entered the LEO domain – meowy roarrr!

Practiced a few pouncing jumps on my Yoga mat this morning, to honour MARS and now also VENUS in LEO 🙂

Lioness Hanging Out

Don’t be shy, SHINE!

Show Time, Glow & Glamour Time…

And esp.: 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 SEPT 19, adding to the Summer Radiance – and FIRE until Summer turns into Fall, on the Equinox Day of Sept 22.

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

Nothing sharp and edgy.
Mainly fun and games.
Even an enticing con-incentive from VENUS and the North Node in their union mid-Sept, to be more in LEO mode of
LIVING LIFE LOVINGLY, and showing ourselves Heart-fully (vs. just ‘watching the show and drama’ of others, in depleting AQ mode).

VENUS will even go into Grand FIRE Trine (yep, the one we had with the Total SOLAR ECLIPSE & MARS this week), Sept 12 – 17.
Together with LILITH ahead of SATURN in SAG, and URANUS in AR.

This bodes well for a Heart-fully passionate and creative month!
En-JOY!

 

 

If you’d like to tune in astrologically, whether there’s an outer ‘occasion’ and change, or you just have ‘that calling’ I invite you to get in touch.
I’m happy to support you being re-aligned and re-empowered, on your own path, and in relationships.

The longer ago you had your first session the less you pay in August! 🙂 .

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.
