I’d love to invite all of you and your friends to our traditional, yearly
Celebration & Personalized Exploration Workshop:

* Happy Birthday, VICTORIA, on March 14!
Astrology, the City, and YOU!

WED March 14, 7:14 – 9:44 pm
Overflow group at 3:14 – 5:44 pm can be opened.
FB Event page

Find out about your connection with the City-in-You, and how to flow in effortless ease with the vibes of our community!

 

If you can’t come, not to worry:
Here are some features we will discuss. 
And even though you’ll miss your personal Astro connection with the City we can catch up with that too, in a private session (with nice 14% discount this month, for consultations focusing on City Relationship). 

 

Voila, here’s the gist of the Astrology of Victoria the City!

Cities have astrological charts as well!

Voila – here is Victoria’s ‘personal horoscope’, based on the time Fort Victoria was established by the HBC on March 14, 1843 at 4:12 pm PST.

A relatively recent but impactful colonial layer over the First Nations land.

 

Victoria


YES, ‘she’ is a PISCES SUN / VIRGO MOON & AC (just before the Full Moon) Lady.

As you see, Victoria’s chart features a lot of  VIRGO, CAP, AQ, PI, and AR flavours.

  • LEO – VIR ‘Sphinx Point’ / Self Awareness AC and MOON:
    Victoria is all about ‘Know Thyself’!
  • VIR MOON on the AC – Very Victorian appearance… Sacred Geometry in the land, and:
    A City of / for Women / the Divine Feminine? Lots of women / men with a strong inner feminine are doing the sacred work here, in their ‘temples’. Lots of self-sufficient (or temporary) singles too. 
  • PI SUN / URANUS in the 8th house:
    What you see is NOT what you get. Victoria indeed has (surprising) ‘Secrets’ and is ever elusive. 
  • Public ‘persona’ (MC) in TAU:
    Nature & Garden City turning into ‘development’ / gold digger / follow-the-money City, evoking RE-greening City? Occupy the City? Who owns the City? 
  • What’s with its multi-cultural origin and the ‘mission’?? MARS is ‘hiding out, intercepted in SAG (this year there was a MARS return, as the planet has been in SAG again in the last 2 months too). 
  • And the dark side of her roots? – SCO on the Nadir. 
  • What’s true Royalty? What’s the medicine of the heart? CHIRON in LEO in her’12th

 

What stands out as recent / current Transits for Victoria:

  • The last Full Moon in VIR-PI on March 1 had so much in common with Victoria’s ‘birth’ chart (SUN, MOON, AC, MARS, SATURN) – history repeating itself? 
  • JUPITER now in SCO, activating V’s 3rd / cusp 4th house (IC):
    What are the deeper motifs for the City’s ‘enhancement’? More and bigger isn’t always better. With  massive changes to the city scape / neighbourhoods, and environment Victoria needs to face the big fat pink Elephant in the room. What’s the deeper transformation needed now?
    Quote from a panel discussion about reconciliation of Aboriginal Law and Commonwealth Common Law last week: “Reconciling our relationship with the Earth is primary to reconciling the human made laws and cultures…”
  • URANUS in late AR passed in the last years V’s PLUTO (second time only since ‘she’ was founded – an 84-year cycle). What’s awakening from the Dead?
  •  
  • CHIRON has been on V’s SUN / URANUS in PI in her 8th House over the last few years (every 50 years):
    The wound / vulnerability / overwhelm also carries its own healing medicine…. 
  • PLUTO in CAP squaring  in 2018 / 19 V’s PLUTO in AR, and meeting her SATURN (248-year cycle!):
    Doesn’t sound like tons of fun… yet the serious business of Transformation into / with Integrity.
  •  
  • SATURN now in CAP has transited V’s North Node:
    Wake up, shape up, grow up, Sleeping Princess! Whoaaa, that doesn’t mean letting building speculation take over. 
  • The Aug 21 2017  TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE was so close to V’s AC / MOON, anchoring Self Awareness. Who are we, as a City, a Community?

Intense and exciting times for the City, that’s for sure!

Want to get a deeper sense of the energy of our fair city, astrologically?
Wondering about your astrological ‘compatibility’ with Victoria?

Let’s take a good look at it all, and share our experiences, on Victoria’s ‘Secret’ Birthday, March 14 (really wondering who knows about it!)!

 

Victoria Coat of Arms

Victoria’s Coat of Arms (from 1962):
Two Angels ‘Colony’ & ‘Civilization’(!), British Crown, Descending Dove, (Masonic?) Triangle with All-Seeing Eye of Providence on top, and Motto “Semper Liber” (Always Free!).


Hmmm, wondering whether this motto is still in effect / in integrity??? given all the foreign money and development streaming in…

 

 

As a little ‘bonus’ here is the (very literally and figuratively apt) SABIAN SYMBOL for Victoria’s SUN at 24° PISCES:

 Victoria Downtown

“ON A SMALL ISLAND SURROUNDED BY THE VAST EXPANSE OF THE SEA, PEOPLE ARE SEEN LIVING IN CLOSE INTERACTION.

Keynote: The need to consciously accept one’s own personal limitations in order to concentrate one’s energies and to live a centred and fulfilled life.

Every individualized person is a small island in the vast ocean of humankind. The ego fulfills a necessary function, as it sets boundaries and gives a specific character to the consciousness. Within these boundaries a complex interplay linking and integrating the various aspects of the personal life can operate constructively. In time, these ego-boundaries can not only expand, but can become a zone of intense interchange between the inner and the outer, between the individual and the community, between man and the universe.

This…symbol tells us that the first duty of any man or woman is to be truly what s/he is as an individual. But this individual has a particular dharma, i.e. a place and function in a vaster whole. 

The island’s inhabitants get subsistence from the sea, and in time learn to navigate this sea and interact with other islanders – and all eventually will come to realize their oneness within the whole Earth, which includes everything. An appropriate keyword would be CENTRALIZATION.”

Hmmm, nobody is an island – not even Victorians…! 🙂
