Astro bits, 18th Sept, 2017!

Balsamic moon phase, time before the new moon, you may really feel like winding down, feeling like letting go, that even apart of you is literally dying away into a nothingness. Ideally it’s an internal, quite time of the moon. You may still be releasing after the Full moon in Pisces, wrapping things up, the endings.
Moon has just entered Virgo, ground down into earthy realms, looking at the details.
*
Venus quincunx Chiron, love, self-esteem, beauty, relationship hit a bit of a sore spot over the last few days, some little annoyance perhaps got in the way of you really just enjoying the Venus/Jupiter aspect which was also about. You may have felt hopeful/optimistic for something or someone, but felt the pain, or disappointment of the quincunx. You work through the vulnerabilities and feeling uncomfortable, aware what it has brought up for you.
*
Just as Venus comes off her aspect to Chiron she meets up with Uranus, an unusual, surprise or sudden bit comes into play. You like excitement, some relief perhaps.
Uranus brings in insight out of the blue, the unexpected!

Well, the energy has settled somewhat, not as twitchy as the last few days. But, I would say you’re feeling tired/drained from it.
Venus the planet of love and money is in a harmonious aspect to Jupiter, expansion, brings in a happy vibe. You might be feeling more social, more willing to open up and share, feeling more optimistic, hopeful. Wanting to lighten up a little here. Maybe just watch the money side of things, as in spending too much. Or just laying it all out there.
*
Venus conjunct the North Node of fate, a future might be in the making here, so pay attention to who/what is around now.
*
Venus/Jupiter in a quincunx(adjustments) to Chiron(wound, a sore spot, insecure) which will make it interesting, this is building now. Hold on a bit, don’t get to carried away, as Jupiter’s influence often does make you feel. There is more to these aspects that is not really ready to unfold as of yet.

Venus in Leo, Saturn Direct, and other Astro bits, 27th, Aug, 2017!

VENUS in LEO, step more into the spotlight with Venus here. She will be looking at Love, money, relationships and self-worth. When in Leo, you are bold and daring, you want fun, play and more excitement in your life, especially your love life. You will also want the attention, want to be adored, looked at and appreciated.
Venus can be open, generous, warm-hearted during her stay here. That is of course if she is getting the attention, if not, well then you may hear her roar.
Find the time to re energize your life, put that extra sparkle in all that you do. Go out and look your best, be charming, charismatic. Be confidant, Venus here will also let you know in what areas of your life that you do need a bit of a confidence boost. She will also show you what lacking in your life.

SATURN DIRECT ->->-> since April Saturn has been Rx, the planet of time, karma, commitment, work and goals. What was holding you back? What did you need to go over again.
Direct, you can move forward and hopefully you leave behind some of the old karmic debts that may have been dragging you down.

MARS conjunct NORTH NODE, 27th, great for taking action and going after what you want, plus with Venus also in Leo, another planet gives you a boost along, give you the passion, sass, to get yourself seen, to move you along the path of your soul’s purpose and passion. You have to back yourself here, know you have the goodies. Saturn D motion will give it somewhat of a forward momentum, you have paid off some debts, so go forward. It’s all the way to the future from here.
North Node, future self, path and road, step into it.

JUPITER sextile SATURN, 27th, these two are working together, with an optimistic practical approach, you can achieve, succeed. Jupiter expands and Saturn restricts, but with this meetup the two are working together to bring about opportunities, expansion, growth. But with a realistic touch and approach.

MOON in SCORPIO,  you go deeper, does bring in the deep intense emotional part, but use this to keep you going after your desires and passion. There is nothing like an intense emotional urge or want to keep you going.

 

 

 

 

Sun in Virgo and Astro bits, 24th Aug, 2017!

virgo

SUN in VIRGO, time to get back to reality, ground down into the daily ritual, work and service that is life. She comes back to earth and find that it humbles her. After the high life of Leo.
You can now look at what is wrong, what is right, be discerning, and separate what you want to keep, what’s useful and what is not.
You do come back down to earth with the Virgo season, you get realistic, come less from ego, and you best get about your daily business, and get organised.
You may find you take life a little more serious, become more practical.
Also good time to look at health, healing, lifestyles, your daily routine and ritual. Virgo Sun shines the light on what is not really working for you. So it is a little bit of a clean up time.

VENUS trine CHIRON, VENUS square URANUS

Venus in Cancer has empathy and compassion for this pain, Chiron is wounding and healing. If any pain does surface allow love into heal, take comfort and care.

This may have something to do with the need for healing a sore spot. The unexpected urge for beauty or love. It will help the Venus trine Chiron heal that sore spot.

Venus and Uranus, well that might be a jolt, a sudden magnetic attraction to someone or something that you would not normally wear, you have a need for that pop out color! a splash of excitement, you want to step out more, the routine is blah, you feel like more freedom. It may bring in or undo a sense of security or comfort. Your heart misses a beat, it pulses faster. Your emotions are a little restless and unsettling.

 

Venus square Jupiter, 17th Aug, 2017!

VENUS square JUPITER
I generally, think and feel anything that involves Venus and Jupiter is good. With Venus coming off here hit with Pluto which was, well just too much, felt like unraveling or coming undone? Here she is leveling out somewhat, helping you find some center or slightly clearer view.
Use this to level out your emotions, try to feel good. Depending on how the past two weeks have been, you may be real good :)) or just good :/. This may give you time to just lift your head a little from the madness.
 
Good day for socializing, anything that makes you feel good. Keep in mind that Jupiter likes to expand things, so you may go overboard or take it all to far.
Particularly in areas of Love, money, beauty, attraction or relationship.

Moon moves into Cancer early tomorrow, she will move through her third quarter phase, this is the beginning of the end phase, parts are dying off and bits remain, then balsamic phrase, parts are still dying off, and you are waiting to see what is left for you to use, plant and work with, waiting for the new to emerge, this is a real going inward phrase, before she moves into Leo for the big new moon eclipse

Venus opposite Pluto, 15th Aug, 2017!

VENUS in Cancer opposite PLUTO in Capricorn.
Venus rules, love, money, relationship, self-worth and values.
Pluto rules, sex, power, money, other people, transform and transcends.
And both have control and power struggles going on. Opposition is external, you and your relationship with the outside world, or other people. 
Something you have to face, and it brings up some intense feelings and fear. A culmination of results, things have gone to the highest point, an ending may come, bits have to get released or thrown away.

You may want something from another, it’s a deep longing or need.
There may be power forces of tension or conflict coming from within or an outside/external force.  Projecting your issues onto someone (or they could be projecting onto you), is a big y with this one.

Basically, Venus in Cancer, she will take it more personally, (her security might be attached to something outside of herself,) themes come under the microscope to be looked at, or played out. Within you, it’s about the self-worth, self-esteem, values, love, attraction, are you taking care of you, your needs, your feelings. As you may not get what you want from the other!

Feed yourself.

This may be a sore spot.

Pluto always brings in the intense undercurrent of feelings, raging, stirring from within. Most probably it is coming from an outside force that is stirring your pot.
I always see Pluto’s influence as peeling back the layers of your psyche, emotions are trying to surface to be released and let go of, and it usually is painful and annoying, but however it needs to be done. As it’s right in front of you.

This transit is happening for a day or two.

SUN sextile JUPITER – MARS quincunx NEPTUNE – MERCURY sextile VENUS.

You may feel optimistic, confident and energy is higher. You do feel like you can achieve, and things will be in your favour, turn out alright.

Mars is aspecting Neptune, which brings about the risky, uncertain part. You may feel bold and sure, wish to take some action(Mars) but the Neptune part can let you down or you miss the spot you wanted.

Mercury is nicely aspecting Venus, this does bring a good vibe, be nice, people are easier to get along with. Be sensitive, and practical in your approach today.

Nice day to talk about love. Treat yourself kindly.

Moon is in Pisces, feel your feelings, pray, connect with spirit. Be sure to take some time out for reflection and introspection. Surrender to all that has been happening. Send some love your way.

Venus enters Cancer!

VENUS enters CANCER, You want a deeper, softer, sweeter, nurturing connection. The need for comfort and nurturing will be stronger, forming deeper bonds.

You will want to take your emotions a little deeper. Which can of course make things a little more rocking on the emotional front. You will be seeking love, a tad more serious, you want to take it up notch.
Your likes and dislike will be made from a more emotional feeling space.
She can be moody here.
Good time for some self-love and self-care for yourself and others, being a touch more sensitive to love issues. Or perhaps generally more serious.
You will want to connect with home, family and loved ones.
Venus rules love, money and relationship/partnership.

Moon in Scorpio while Venus is getting ready to dive into her emotion, so today keep your yourself steady.

New Moon in Leo, 23 July, 2017….get your Groove on and Shine!

New Moon in Leo, 23rd July, @7:45:32 pm.

  • Sun conjunct Moon, Conjunct Mars, trine to Chiron, square to Uranus. Venus and Saturn are squaring it up in the background.

Sun and Moon in Leo, Yeah Baby!

Mars comes along with his warrior, brave, ready to get going, take action, amped up energy. All squaring to Uranus which as you know brings in the surprise or unpredictable, I am ready for change now, vibe. Which can just make you feel wobbly and restless.

But, just hold on a tick, try not to be to impulsive or too risky, or over reactive with what comes your way.

This is a starting point a new moon of planting your intention for the next cycle. Leo is about heart, flowing yours, being creative, passionate, but most of all taking action from this place, being passionate and driven for something that will allow you to shine out in the world, no matter what that is. To find your Joy, to be able to be inspired and sparked up about yourself and your life. This is about, you feeling free to be creative especially when it come to expressing yourself, that pure essence of who you are, smiling, being playful, having fun, tapping into the bliss of you. Letting this shine and be seen.  

You want to feel like that you are stepping into a new phrase of life, with a freshness of your being.
Chiron is healing, clearing away all of the old, left over stuff, people, illusions, situation that you hopefully have been working on so you can start with a level of newness and freshness, with a spirit more open and free. Not still bogged down by the burden of the old still on your back. This is important.

Venus is building to a square with Saturn in the background, you may feel a lack or not good enough, try not to over compensate for this feeling if it comes your way, by being loud, to act out, be dramatic, when not getting the attention you want, when you don’t feel special, or you feel rejected, this can just make it all so much worse. Work (Saturn) through whatever this is for you. Take logical, practical, mature approach and steps to bring the healing in. Chiron is in this mix up, healing is available but through the work.
It is Leo energy with fire in the chart, try not to be too proud, filled with too much pride or confidence as it may not serve you in the long run or get you through to the other side.

VENUS trine JUPITER, MARS trine CHIRON, MOON in Taurus.

After coming off yesterday’s energy, you feel somewhat better, it’s a smoother ride.

Mars meets up with Chiron, you are more driven or energized to do some healing work on the wounds of old or yesterday. Mars is coming of his hard aspect to Uranus, you may have been rattled, there might be an element of surprise. You may even just be surprised, how one day you’re off and the next you’re on.

Venus connects with Jupiter, you feel more optimistic and even a little joyful, in areas of LoVe, money, romance and relationship. If any disappointment or illusion is left over from meeting up with Neptune, this can make you feel more positive in what you are reaching for.

Moon in Taurus helps to be grounded, practical in your approach. Can also help you to shake off all of the intensity of the last few day.

VENUS square NEPTUNE, MARS squares URANUS, Moon in Aries.

With Venus hitting up hard against Neptune whatever you want in money, love, relationship. May be out of reach. Love may be elusive, you really dream it, want it, perhaps you can even taste it. Neptune brings with it a sense of illusion, delusion, and disappointment. 

Not the best day to sign contracts personally or business. Hold off. Even till tomorrow.

Maybe it’s just a day-dream.

Mars in Cancer is emotionally, firing you along, wanting to take action, go out and get it, but hitting up hard against Uranus’s push, a trigger point, may be distributing you, stirring you up. You may be reckless or take a risk just to get something. A need wants to be met. Act with judgment, with Neptune floating out with Venus is may only lead to heart ache or despair.

It’s all still too elusive, not real yet.

Moon in Aries is the beginning. A starting point, the surge of energy, to clear away the old, this may be a place of freedom that’s happening, a burning desire from within that is making its way out.

But it’s not really ready…..yet.
