Venus Retrograde 2018 ✨ Regeneration of Heart Chakra✨(Part II)

🔥 Phases of Regeneration & Specific Dates 🔥

Let’s talk about how this evolution will happen, what phases we are expected to undergo, what dates and what aspects Venus will make so we are better prepared. For Venus retrograde impact by sign you can access below video with timestamps by sign in comments provided :

Venus is currently an evening star and it’s been so most of this year, all summer you saw it shining bright in the Western Sky brightest barring object barring the Moon & visible just after sunset, this is Godess of Love in its traditionally revered form, “Hesperus” – receptive, feminine Venus feeling, understanding, absorbing love and financial abundance not running after it, receiving it. It’s the traditional feminine archetype of Venus depicted and we would see it in our life as well people born under evening star represent the qualities of it. You can easily whether you were born under Venus as evening or morning star, by checking if Venus is ahead of Sun in countercyclical manner in your natal chart.

When evening star is at it’s peak in September we are also likely to remember past lovers, relationships, Evening Star Venus likes to take an internal journey vs an external one and familiar feels better.

See what Venusian themes are showing to you till 5th October cause that and more of what Venus rules in your chart will become the question of do you love what you have right now in that area of life, Venus will go over these themes two more times till December. That was the reason in September monthly horoscope videos I had suggested we don’t go overboard in terms of financial and relationship commitments specially week before retrograde as we might end of revisiting them a couple of times, being in Scorpio all or nothing approach and death rebirth process of regeneration the relationships developing now are there to cause transformation in us and possible to grow us but new relationships developing now may not necessarily progress in their current format. What we love is about to undergo death rebirth.

Venus will spend part of this cycle till 9th September in Libra but after 9th September it changes to Scorpio and you see intensity & depth in relationships, intimacy, finance, creativity rise as Scorpio is reaching out into truth of our feelings those we wish to be with. This is further exaggerated by the aspects Venus starts making which will also be revisited two more times till December. Here is the preview you probably saw :

Aspect 1 : Venus square Mars 8th September
Conflict, friction, urge for excitement, friction, let’s break up, fight or have an exiting physical experience! It’s repeated on 10th October though with much more intensity as Venus will be retrograde. This conflict will become constructive action in November after as these two planets will be in positive aspect of trine on 10th November.

Aspect 2 : Venus oppose Uranus 12th September
Internal revolution, wanting to break free, disassociate from previous cycle to create more value, worth, freedom, control for oneself. Sudden events or people showing up to make this tangibly felt. In society we see people experimenting or tempted to try weird unique beauty styles. Looking to break up or loose something which once was of great value to self. This is repeated on 31st Oct while Venus is retrograde when you feel this very strongly and then again on 1st December when Venus goes direct to finally release the old and embrace the new.

Aspect 3 : Venus sextile Saturn 13th September
This is what I feel makes this Venus cycle mst beneficial as Saturn has focus on your material Long term abundance so while the friction, revolution, excitement is important to regenerate this is truly what matures Venus and makes it all last and not fizzle out. It’s under the shadow of Saturn that we want to take important decisions so dates for this stabilising influence are 13th September, then 24th October when Venus is retrograde, then again 16th December for final establishment of harmony and order.

Aspect 4 : Venus square Nodes 16th September
Nodes are karmic destiny we are meant to live to get to the life path we are meant to walk to be our definition of success. In this cycle we will experience growth through conflict with people we have karma with. First brush with that around 16th September will feel mild, followed by much more intense interaction on 31st September when there is lot more instability and third time of resolution on 27th November

In September these aspects are all happening at very early degrees of Scorpio, so things plans thoughts are very underdeveloped at this stage, there will be unawareness as Mercury hasn’t yet come to picture. These aspects will tempt you to jump in with both feet instigating, exciting, rebelling, conflicting yet freeing you all at same time.

All these aspects are followed by a surge of Cardinal energy to initiate things from 21st September with Libra season starting and Venus will be at its highest illumination that day followed by its movement below the horizon for its underworld journey.

Phase II : Venus Retrograde as Evening Star 5th October to 26th October

Venus is about 30degrees ahead of Sun when it appears to be pulled back and appears to start moving backward from earth. Venus is invisible which per ancient astrology signifies that the planet’s blessings are disrupted causing disruptions & confusion in relationships, business affairs, money values, self worth, style. Mayans called Venus grisly and violent during its retrograde period. I can’t say that’s how we should be expecting things to be but retrograde period of Venus in Mars dominant sign of Scorpio wouldn’t be devoid of drama and extremes. We now have 40 days of rumination of love, values, Creative issues and at global level diplomacy would be reviewed, international relationships will undergo a period of review, test of strength and realignment. This is a period we would like to go to what’s known, the old, cling to the past, so we might invite a few old connections back into our life but those would normally come back to remind us why we let them go in the first place.

Its suggested to not 1) spend large sums of money during this time on anything of value, 2) making large relationship commitments, 3) making significant style or looks change ownether it’s colouring hair or elective cosmetic work. No major decisions on Venusian themes – love, finance, beauty, art. You will change your mind. My closet is full of clothes never worn bought during Venus retrograde, you can check yours too. It’s a good time to get rid of those.

But the thing is, it’s Libra season, Venus is closest to the earth, you will be tempted to all of this. See if you would rather this extra Venusian energy in finding new bargains because the seller didn’t know it’s true value, giving away unwanted Venusian items from your closet, renegotiate a previous financial contract, renegotiate terms of existing relationships, fully release some ex or old relationships attachments for once instead of initiating new cycle. Cause the retrograde period is best served as a period of disengagement from previous cycle and looking deep within as to what you feel your new cycle should be. Being closest to earth even though invisible Hesperus or Evening Star nature of Venus will be at its peak, it’s a bit insecure, feeling unloved and unappreciated is common. But this inward journey can lead to some creative breakthroughs and rebirths if you give yourself the space for it. Some old Creative passions can resurrect from the dead, they are best brought to public eye when Venus goes direct. It’s great time to go deep into research mode specially on Occult, astrology related matters.

Retrograde period is naturally a recoil time, that might be triggered by an event or conscious decision to retreat. Even if busy in day to day you will find yourself looking for deeper meaning in these daily interactions. Being in Scorpio this introspections will bring to light parts of us normally hidden from view.

There will be a lot of truths coming out, people saying the naked truth about relationships to create authenticity. Discord you experience right now shows the distance between your reality and your ideals of values, creative inspiration, beauty and relationships. Use that knowledge. Unfortunately Venus in Scorpio doesn’t like to commiserate even though it has X-ray vision of feelings but it doesn’t like to give in to weakness, so you wouldn’t be hearing a lot of reassuring words coming through. You tend to magnify flaws and faults in relationships right now as they are under a microscope and above aspects support that exaggeration to help you wake up to the gap between reality and ideal. Strong relationships evolve and weak relationships are buried left behind never to be looked back at in focus single minded Scorpio retrograde.

This is astrologically very busy time as Sky is very busy lots of aspects during this time which work with Venus let’s explore them by date :

Aspect 1 : 9th October New Moon in Libra square Pluto
Pluto is a very active participant early October so theme of personal power, control issues with authority figures, intensity in thoughts and speech will be fairly evident even though we try to see both sides with Kivra energy so rife in Sun, Mercury and the new moon. Yet there are multiple aspects encouraging creative thought processes. Drive your life force creatively towards your life purpose versus trying to prove yourself to others. You will be wasting your energy dissipating it cause everyone would be on a power trip. Use this freshly infused Libra energy to add some objectivity, balance and diplomacy to relationships at the same time not loosing the authenticity and power offered by Scorpio Venus

💥 Aspect 2 : 10th October Venus square Mars at 10 degree💥
Moon will also be in Scorpio this day so needless to say emotions will run deep with possibility of outbursts. Mars in Aquarius is a bit of a rebel and detached. Venus in Scorpio wants all or nothing. Moon in Scorpio goes deep and brings out magnified deep hurts. People will be taking things more personally in general. Frustrations with loved ones will seem high.
This is the day of sexual tension as well. Solid relationships can experience this as a workout of energy in form of good old sex but in a relationship where things haven’t been said, you can experience verbal explosions. Such strong Scorpio energy with Mercury just moved into Scorpio as well, doesn’t want to accept superficiality and power struggles are very much possible.
Secrets might start to come out in coming days but this isn’t a good time to intentionally expressing your feelings as they will come out according to energy of the day which is explosive. This can be experienced a day earlier as well. I find oppositions are opportunities we are looking for both freedom, innovation, brilliance, progressiveness in our actions which can benefit all, as well as depth intensity soulfulness in our heart felt relationships, who doesn’t want both. Well this gives us opportunity to create both at a cost mainly of not giving into the petty fights.

On global level this is a women reform energy especially related to physical abuse so we can see some news of revelations, forceful movement and progress in that direction. Jupiter in Scorpio has already been leading the charge on this as you can see since late last year.

😇 Aspect 3 : 14th October Mercury Meets Venus 😇
Mercury our mind our intellect has been making aspects of its own around 11th October prior to this with the karmic nodes and Uranus. So we see sudden ideas, flurry of activity coming through here, this is very much conflict with few Karmic people or sudden karmic/destined events happening leading us kicking and screaming to ideas that free us and keeping us honest cause that’s the theme. We are being pulled to Mars in Aquarius and Uranus freedom dissolution of past cycle at the same time when your creative and mental intellect Venus and Mercury wants to dive in both feet in, into something that’s more authentic, fixed, true, soulful for you. Saturn as before is an active participant trying to keep an eye on Long term material stability and some objectivity. This conflict is much more at our own intellect level yet, I like that our logical mind is making these aspects before the retrograde Venus does cause on 14th that logical intellect is transferred through a constructive conversation or communication to our emotional intelligence Venus in this beautiful conjunction.

You will continue to see this solution undergo multiple iterations while fixity and depth grows. 19th is a great ideation day as Mercury trines Neptune but if you engage in a discussion you will conflict more than reconcile so avoid that day for a negotiation. 22nd October is better for it when Mercury sextile Pluto.

Aspect 4 : 24th October Taurus full moon & Venus Saturn sextile
I find Taurus full moon such an excellent grounding comforting energy specially creating more material support for us. Sun is also now in Scorpio so we have all key planets in fixed sign now creating much more firmer and possibly fixed forward course of action. This doesn’t come without its share of surprise as Sun is very much opposed by Uranus and squared by karmic nodes. These are unexpected exciting encounters that shake us internally to realisation as to how close are we to our goals and life path. These encounters will very much feel fated. But what’s most magical about this culmination is Venus and Saturn meet and this is before Venus gets e tangled in nodes and Uranus, so we have Venus fully maturing before it’s final rebirth. Your creative intelligence has now received a Long term map and it’s ready to encounter and take on the next most unstable intense period of Venus retrograde.

Phase III : Inferior Conjunction Venus Sun 26th October
This is the turning point, the call to war, the beginning of new phase of Venus when Venus comes between Earth and Sun. It’s said Venus in arms of Sun transfers it’s knowledge from retrograde period to embody it and then walks on earth as a Man or human. Venus has died and now being reborn as a morning star Lucifer. During retrograde period it’s considered that feminine side of Venus is assualted and buried underground, what comes out is a male version, strong, courageous, valiant, militant, aggressive, self loving Venus.

This is considered period of insemination of all that Venus learned during its inward journey and if during this time Venus makes contacts with any of your personal planets particularly if they are at 2-3degrees of Scorpio or to some extend 2-3 degree of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, they get inseminated with this Venus stamp for a Long period of time as well.

Phase IV : Heliacal Rising : 27th October to 16th November
Venus is now morning star but still below the horizon and retrograde.
Mayans described this period when Venus rose from the underworld still covered in blood and gore of the dead. The first 6-7 days after inferior conjunction are considered the most unstable time specially for political situations, Venus is unstable so are diplomatic and personal relationships. This can be the time of failure by leaders, secrets coming out, resignations, major accidents and storms. Personal level we are very very vulnerable at this time, imagine like a heart post bypass, it’s just too tender and it’s just been set free it’s wild, it will feel like being wild and it will equally get hurt hard and deep. The whole idea of this metamorphosis of Venus is for us to experience love in its all forms, in its tamed controlled inward form as well it’s wild passionate impulsive form but we are trying to contain the damage while we do so, so be careful of your impulsive fools rush in outlook during this time.

The final frontier : 31st October Venus squares nodes and Uranus & enters Libra

Beautiful thing is this Heliacal rising will be happening in Libra from 31st October! Venus thrives in this sign it tames the recklessness retains the beauty and balance of Venus. But before it enters Libra it makes contact with Uranus and nodes for the second time on 31st October. This is the second and most impactful shock to our relationship, finances, creativity, self love, it’s break or make. I like that we have made contact with Saturn before this but it’s a shock nonetheless. No more fighting no more arguments we know now. We release or we progress.

Mercury also enters Sagittarius now on 31st so we are focused on higher ideals goals we will be reviewing those in Nov as Mercury will undergo retrograde period from 16th Nov to 6th December.

10th November : You will need your plans relooked at one last time in December but morning star Venus wants it’s power back it wants to move forward. It’s now accelerated into constructive actions on 10th Nov by trine with Mars. Even though retrograde with Libra energy rife we start making progress with diplomacy, love, reconciliation and balance.

About 6-7 days after conjunction Venus will be 10degree behind Sun. In November you will see it slowly rise in predawn eastern sky and by Christmas you will see it pre sunrise.

Phase V : Venus Stations Direct as Morning Star 16th November

Just before Venus turns direct and just after it turns direct at 25degree Libra it meets the most brilliant the most beneficent brightest star Spica cultivating knowledge and gifts. This is knowledge, talent, brilliance, skill beyond our means being gifted to our cardinal free will Venus the ordeal we have had. When Venus goes direct unlike Mercury it’s not a tangible knowledge that we have, it’s not an objective knowing unlike Mercury, it’s rather a feeling, a visceral knowing that you will see reflected in all your relationships, your creativity, your style. Cause it’s been a journey of truly loving yourself. Venus is now about 30degrees behind the Sun and she is the warrior empowered with the right tools.
People with Day horoscope or born in morning will benefit most from this Long Venus cycle of morning star but we all see the benefits.

Mercury will meet Venus on 16th November but Mercury will be taking its turn to be retrograde in November on that day so we rework review applying our higher ideals to what we have so far progressed with Venus retrograde.

Phase VI : Greatest Western Elongation 26th November
Venus is now a visible Morning Star 45-48 degree behind Sun which is now in Sagittarius.

– Venus will square the nodes one last time on 27th November to check if we are taking decisions in line with our path.
– Venus will oppose Uranus as well on 1st December for some positive surprise.
6th December Mercury turns direct so w can put our ideas to work.
– Finally Venus meets Saturn to firm up the structure on 16th December and comes out of shadow on 17th December

💫We are now going full speed ahead in our heart related matters, loving ourselves and all that we value more deeply and authentically 💫

Venus Retrograde 2018 ✨ Regeneration of Heart Chakra✨ (Part I)

💕 Venus Retrograde 💕 5th October to 16th November 2018

🌪What’s happening?🌪

Venus is going retrograde from 5th October to 16th November 2018 to be exact but themes of Venus would dominate our psyche from September to December as the all consuming sign of Scorpio dominates this journey of growing through death and rebirth or regeneration in love, relationships, resources, values…✨
On 26th October when Venus will meet Sun in an inferior conjunction and come closest to earth, its new cycle will begin and it will descend most of October to the underworld to transform from a receptive loving pleasing sensual Greek Aphrodite evening star to passionate wild courageous powerful free will morning star and so would transform our approach to themes of love, beauty, intimacy, fame, values, money, resources, creativity (“Venusian themes”). Venus vibrates in 5th harmonic with Earth invoking creativity and heart responses from us so it’s goes deep into all that makes us feel good and loved.

As we stand today Venus is in Scorpio and it will continue to be in Scorpio all of rest of September, October and then again all of December all the way till 7th January. Venus will be retrograde from 5th October to 16th November. It will go direct in November in the sign of Libra and all of November Venus will be in Libra. During the whole cycle Venus will cover the ground from 25 degree Libra to about 11 degree Scorpio three times. This is reevaluation cycle of who or what you love & value or what you don’t, what balance of give and take exists in your relationships, how much are you valuing your creative pursuits while getting lost in day to day, how much are you valuing your own beauty inside out, does your external beauty reflects your inner self, does your self image need a make over. It’s a sensory fest marked with intensity of Scorpio, all or nothing, full regeneration resolving in harmony of Kibra to get you closer to people, lovers, environment, style, arts, financial prospects that make you feel loved and valued. This long drawn journey will connect us more deeply with all that we truly love and heal us.

It’s regeneration of our heart chakra💗

⚡️Who is most impacted?⚡️

Venus is a visible planet and it comes closest to earth compared to any other planet during retrograde period making its impact deeply felt both physically and psychologically across earth. At an individual level, it impacts the area of your chart where Libra and Taurus is in addition to seeing tangible events in the area where Scorpio is in your horoscope. The evolution of each of these areas will happen differently, more so in October as we also have full moon in Taurus and new moon in Libra the two Venus ruled signs, making October all about Venus. That’s why this also to some extend becomes your October 2018 General Horoscope.

I will discuss in which areas this could play out for each sign at the end of the article but it’s important to understand what role Venus plays in our life, specific phases and underlying rational for it all so you can handle this important transit effectively.

Even though all of us will feel it but intensity will be higher for Venus dominant signs Libra & Taurus and ofcourse Scorpio.

This transit could feel harsh briefly if you have natal planets & ascendant in early degrees Taurus, Leo & Aquarius, it can exaggerate sensitivity & feelings of hurt, unappreciated, unloved, lack cooperation, relationship issues could come up briefly in October when Venus will oppose or square your planets. Though these signs are rewarded with greatest breakthrough.

You could feel this as a softer even exhilarating aspect if you have natal planets in early degree of Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo & Cancer. Also last degrees of Sagittarius, Aquarius, Leo and Gemini feel beneficial aspect of this transit in November.

✨ Echoes of past in the present ✨

Venus goes retrograde every 18 months for 40-43 days in different sign but due to synodic cycle of Venus-Earth, Venus retrogrades every 8 years around the same degrees in the same signs, just regressed by 2-3 degrees. So this is one of those times when we do really have advantage of the hindsight!
Ofcourse the overall sky, planets, our growth stage isn’t exactly the same but Venus retrograde invokes similar cycle of growth in a progressed fashion every 8 years slightly shifted to the west or more regressed into one sign prior. So in 2010, or to be exact from 8th October to 18th November 2010 Venus went retrograde covering 27 degree Libra to 13 degree Scorpio and now from 5th October to 10th November 2018, Venus will be retrograde covering 25 degree Libra to 10 degree Scorpio charting similar course.

Difference this time will be focus of other planets affecting our overall growth phase and the aspects Venus is making to other planets affecting how the resolution of the issues will happen. The most stark difference in this cycle is absence of Jupiter in Venus retrograde so there is no overall euphoria or over the top energy rife during this retrograde. Instead Saturn participates in this retrograde period making it leading in my view a matured Long term growth solution. Mars and Uranus will be active participants like last cycle making sure there is freedom, tension, revolution but this cycle in my view represents a better balance of harmony (Libra) and passion (Scorpio). Nodes are invoked so this cycle will feel more karmic, destined and we achieve a much more matured level of growth in the area of our life affected by Venus retrograde. Jupiter already expanded illuminated this part of our life from 17th September to 30th November 2017 when it traversed through these exact degrees and we felt growth in this area. Uranus has been opposing these very degrees since May so somewhere inside you are already itching to make this change. Mars has also been repeatedly squaring these degrees so you have seen urge for excitement even conflicts in this area.

Do what you need to do to remember the details of September 2010 to December when Venusian themes of September-December 2018 might have showed up last for detailed review. We do forget the lessons no matter how harsh or gratifying they were but each Venus retrograde cycle expects us to utilise the lessons of last cycle that’s why it progresses. Look at your emails, messages, diary, notes of those exact months even dates. It’s uncanny how many people I have interacted with on this topic and similarity of themes they are already observing, hopefully we are wiser💫

🎼 What is Venus tangibly for me 🎼

If Venus is going to dominate the rest of the year, we might want to understand what Venus tangibly is to us and how Venus in Scorpio will feel like.

Venus rules love, beauty, intimacy, sexual pleasures, all kinds of pleasures, money, resources, arts, fashion, Creative pursuits. It controls our heart chakra our intuitive knowing, harmony, magnetic attraction, what we value, love and desire.

Venus is a satellite of Sun, it’s no more than 48 degree away from it. It’s the sensory detector of Sun, sifting and looking for what we love, what tastes good, what looks good, what we value in terms of people, lovers, places or environment, style, art, fashion, money or resources be it food or hard cash or our possessions. Based on this Creative intelligence it motivates our actions and guides our mental process so we can create the life around us that we love and value.

It’s a very important planet as it helps us access what makes us feel loved and what makes us love the rest of people, objects and most importantly ourselves. God knows after the time we have had we could take some extra love for ourselves and predominantly in sign of Scorpio assures the end outcome would be authenticity, healing and passion all in time for the holiday season! Venus aims to do that with its deep extended journey through the sign of Scorpio and Libra, the two signs which signify relationships and love but very different kind and in this we experience two very different sides of love, relationships and values over coming months. But relationships will be surely focus for rest of the year.

The natal nature and strength of Venus pretty much defines how we would approach and accept themes of love, relationships, creativity, style and finances. What else is there to life? It’s important to understand your Venus to fully understand how you can be more fulfilled in your life. Venus in Gemini person approaches and appreciates relationships (talk talk talk) completely different from Venus in Scorpio (quiet pls I am trying to read your soul) or Venus in Libra (second date I am browsing wedding bands in style now). Nature of natal Venus also guides how we handle Venus retrograde, meaning do we get there easily or with resistances.

Scorpio Venus will be experienced for the rest of September (from 9th September), all of October and then again in December all the way till 7th Jan. Scorpio Venus doesn’t take any pretence, doesn’t care for the superficial beauty, it wants to go deep into your soul and bare it open to empower you by just being you in all your true colours. That’s when we start coming out with reality of where we are in each of our relationships where we say we love the other person, where we are when we say we love what we do, where we are when we say we love what we have in terms of our resources. Is the object of our love, desire, passion, creativity worth it or not? It can deepen our relationships to people, objects, resources, Creative pursuits by going to the underbelly of things, cause Scorpio Venus isn’t scared of facing its own demons & ugly side & that of others, as long as it exposes deep truth, so we talk of intimacy issues, sexual passions, power control, addictions, hidden aspects, the masks we are wearing come off so we can go fully into it or release it forever. It’s all or nothing, pleasure with pain, death and regeneration, soulful, it’s power, focus, ambition, control, sex, intrusion, invasion, determination, being selfish to live authentic life at all cost. There is no place for the weak and the superficial.

It’s a warrior Venus and Venus in retrograde is already considered at war. Venus was defined by Mayans and Aztecs or Meso-Americans as Godess of War, they scheduled their battles around Venus retrograde as it was time to bare each other’s soul open. It’s war, this is the time Venus is reborn from being an evening star to the go getter morning star, it used to be said that we see the feminine Venus undergo a pseudo sex change to male version of it during a retrograde cause in those times males were considered to be more empowered and the go getters. This rebirth is exaggerated because of Scorpio dominance which believes in destroying it all to regenerate like a phoenix. That’s what we are working with as 26th October approaches.

Ofcourse Venus in Scorpio at war in October will not feel easy, it’s not it’s natural self but it depends on how we handle death rebirth ourselves. As a Scorpio rising myself death rebirth regeneration is part of my existence but for a Taurus or a Libra it will feel differently. But the resolution of it all in November when finally Venus will go direct will be in Libra so we should find an amicable balanced solution but it will retain the Scorpion power which we very much need. Any topics where we are sitting on the fence, Scorpio follow through direct motion in December will move singularly on it.

Pisces Full Moon 26th August : Flying our grounded Kite

I was doing the Pisces reading for their full moon end of the month and I thought all signs could benefit from the messaging of what this intuitive, compassionate, dreamy, soft full moon in 3 degree Pisces on 26th August 7:56am (E.T.) is bringing to all of us. This beautiful full moon is ending the intense eclipse and retrograde season in the last sign of the zodiac…how apt.

I am a Mars dominant person so doing comes naturally to me so I had to figure out how to unlock full potential of this full moon, what should I be “doing” cause as much as it’s sensitive, creative, compassionate, this flowing water packs a punch.
Let’s see how to unlock its full potential.

Background
On 26th August the beautiful Pisces full moon will throw a softening light towards us to bring out our sensitive compassionate, intuitive, imaginative side at the end of an intense and let’s just call it brutal summer of eclipses , retrogrades and hard aspects. Full moon in Pisces is all about merging with the collective, fantasy, feeling things out, day dreaming, acceptance, softness, solitude, recharge, restore. As this sign is last sign of zodiac it has little bit of all signs so it’s about seeing yourself reflected in behaviour of others and gaining better understanding of both, it’s about understanding without saying, knowing about something without doing it. Highest form of intuition and spirituality.

But the thing is this normally let’s flow in the moment and dream our dreams full moon is coming with a very solid grounding wake up to reality and do something Grand Earth Trine. It’s earth meets water both with their own strengths yet executed very differently. We want to see how we can use both because lucky for us, they are coming in a very unique, productive and fated configuration called Kite cause that’s how it looks!

Details of the configuration
To break it down we have : 1)Saturn in Capricorn, perseverance, sheer hard work, disciplined, let’s create something long lasting in our career/life path/administration energy joining forces with 2)Uranus in Taurus, let’s add creativity and brilliance in our ways to achieve financial freedom ending neoslavery as I call it energy; and these two are now actively engaging with the most important planet in the horoscope 3)Sun in practical, let’s be productive and analyse what can make everything more perfect sign of Virgo. The result is a powerful Configuration that is grounding, yet evolving, thriving and wanting to manifest something earthly specifically around our life path, career or administration and eliminating letting go of lost causes, no waste, no frivolity, sheer hardwork with perfection, efficiency and realism.

It’s no fireball but it’s a rooted aspect meaning what comes out of it has got to stay for long term vs fiery let’s get excited this minute quit move to Timbuktu and then after a week forget about it due to lack of follow through energy. Saturn in Capricorn won’t allow that and Sun in Virgo doesn’t like wastage.

But such a rooted powerful energy has the downside of lacking inspiration, the wings, the leap of faith and more importantly higher purpose and the thing is Saturn doesn’t promote the materialism even though it’s at home right now in Capricorn but that’s one area where he doesn’t agree. Virgo Sun also wants to work for greater good so this trine has an intrinsic desire to be more yet lacking the requisite pull to get it out of its comfort zone. While this earth grand trine configuration in itself is very positive, to realise it’s full potential it needs an external pull to harness it’s energy and propel it in the right direction.

Thats what makes this full moon so special as on the day of the full moon, this Creative, imaginative, fantastical, dream the unknown Pisces moon provides the much needed inspiration and direction by opposing the Virgo sun and sextiling in positive aspect with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. The full moon and Grand earth trine come together in a very unique fated and rare Kite configuration. And the two very much need each other to be wonderful cause a full moon in Pisces though beautiful alone would just be a light on our subconscious and compassionate sensitive side and Grand Trine alone would just be a grounding manifesting energy waiting to be harnessed but together we have lift off.

The full moon forms the apex the exit point the relief the leap of faith so the inituition flies this kite off the ground and the earthly grounded grand trine provides the propellers, imagine a ring of energy powering a dragonfly shooting it up in the air taking the ring with it. But if the dragon fly doesn’t have a backbone it will collapse, opposition of Sun to moon is the backbone.

How to unlock potential of this configuration

While the earth grand trine is a flowing aspect, the moon opposition to sun and sextile to Uranus and Saturn requires work though being Moon, it’s internal work required for this external material manifestation in our career, life path, day to day life, commerce and administration to happen.

Moon and Sun opposition is the backbone of this kite, it’s a challenge to your instincts your emotional strength, a much needed conflict to see whether you are able to rise from the day to day practical existence to see the higher purpose to dream a bigger grander tomorrow no matter where you are right now. It’s fundamentals of law of attraction.

Being in Virgo and Pisces it’s polarity of earth vs water, details vs big picture, practical vs creative/spiritual, act/go after vs being receptive, doing it vs allowing it to come, material vs intangible, analytical mind vs imaginative intuition.

It’s left brain vs right brain, thinking in words vs feeling it visualising it, linear thinking vs intuition.

It’s the day we have potential to use both sides of our brain imagine the potential!

And we need both, the challenge we need to come through to unlock this aspect is how to balance the two, how in this unending day to day grind, we give our imagination the time and space to provide the lift off we need for this very brief moment.

It’s about creating perfect image of what you want in your mind without self imposed boundaries and letting you feel how it would feel if it was to be true. It’s no coincidence that Mercury went direct just before it and Neptune is retrograde cause in practical Virgo season even fantasy needs to be perfect without a fog, so it’s about vision of real earthly things, not limiting but real. Plus retrogrades eclipses have battered us down. We are the most open and receptive when we are battered. So universe has also tried to batter many of our souls to help them be open cause sometimes what we need comes in packages we don’t like or doesn’t look how we thought it would cause there is a difference between what we think we want and we actually need to feel how we want to feel. We want to feel happy but a billion dollar car won’t get us there so universe won’t get us that cause it wants to match the feeling we have asked for not the object.

Pisces is an area of no attack no weapons lack of defences lack of fences it’s one day this year to drop your guard down and see who you can be if there was no fear holding you down, instead there was a fated propeller behind you letting you go where you want.

Role of law of attraction to unlock this opposition

We absolutely must try and practice law of attraction for this brief cosmic goldmine to unlock our next greatest inspiration, the seed of something new seemingly bazarre thought with a structure in mind and a higher purpose.

On our side we have to do two things envision our leap of faith “Ask” and then be open to receiving it by dropping our internal critic of : it can’t happen I can’t do it I am not up for it or good for it ; for a brief moment around the time of that full moon, “Allow”

We take a paper write, close our eyes, meditate, make a wish, walk by water, take a long bath, listen to emotive music, pray, forgive, release, channel, volunteer whatever flies your kite gets you in a receptive relaxed mode to receive the download and let you be at least in your mind all you could be if you didn’t limit yourself by your own thoughts.

Law of attraction doesn’t teach us to take it easy but yeah it wants us to stop forcing an issue jut as Pisces full moon wants just as all the retrogrades did. Sometimes to realise our worth we need to station and stop the action to see the view.

So while the sign of intuition and imagination is leading the way helping us soar higher than the ground we stay on, the grounded energy of the earth grand trine still plays a potent part of making sure something comes out of it all – spiritual metaphysical is important to help you “Ask” and “Allow/Receive” but the “ given” part of the universe is ensured by the grand earth trine.
spiritual metaphysical is important to help you ask and receive but the “It is given” part of the universe is ensured by the grand earth trine.

Other components of the Kite

Sun in Virgo is also eliminative, what we need to get rid of ? what’s unnecessary for us to soar? are the things in your closet holding you down ? or are there things in your mind in your diet in your social circle nay sayers who you believe to be your friends ? what needs to be eliminated to cut this cord holding your kite stationary on the ground? Expect this full moon to be emotional.

Uranus in Taurus is all about what you need to be free of to get your true worth in the material world where are we stuck fixed in our life where newness can add more to us, it’s about insights into what we could be if we let the oldway of sustainence go , the only reason humans survived was we evolved. In a retrograde phase Uranus is giving us aha moments internal realisation of what now we deep down know needs to change. Moon and Uranus want us to be open to new experiences, finding original ways of being, watching out for signs, epiphanies, encounters with the different people places objects which we would normally brush off as oddity or out of your comfort zone, even looking out for our sudden impulses where they take us. Expect this full moon to come with epiphanies.

Saturn retrograde in Capricorn in its own sign has come to make sure we are solid from inside to make these changes cause you need a solid foundation , anything birthed now whether a child or a business comes with immense discipline and personal strength but with lomg term stable success it’s makes the shifty ground of Uranus firm for us to build something that would last and it makes sure we are using effectively the parts of existing structure that do work that do serve us. Moon and Saturn wants us to stick with this vision, show our commitment our loyalty to embracing this new at the same time maintain respect for the old. Expect hardwork following the full moon to make it all work but don’t worry it will flow it will not feel like a push but rather a pull as Saturn is part of ring being flown by the dragonfly.

Warning : Deception and Flooding
A few warnings :
Deception and Manipulation
Because of where Neptune is and Pisces being the apex stay away from being manipulated or becoming manipulative to win this opposition vs trying to find a balance in this opposition. Neptune in its own sign is all about spiritual awakening it’s age of people coming to their true spiritual essence and in its own sign karma retribution is accelerated it will come to bite you but good news is Neptune is retrograde so viel of illusion isn’t there and we see things clearly. Try to stay away from people playing the victim hence trying to fleece you, try to stay away from victim tendencies yourself, that’s the lower manifestation of this full moon.

Positive vision vs negative
But careful what you ask for here, your imagination and intuition specially for water signs have power to create or destroy, I am sorry but it’s a very powerful configuration so I have to warn, you are looking to manifest keeping in mind the spiritual and higher purpose not selfish self serving reasons, Neptune is higher manifestation of Venus so when you have full moon in a sign ruled by spiritual and higher knowledge planets you have to stay at a higher plain not just to avoid bad karma but overall nature doesn’t like oddity so when it’s trying to raise the vibration of the world, it’s best to be in flow with the energy of the universe versus not.

Flooding physically and metaphorically
This is earth meets water with sudden burst of energy flowing to a flowing water sign plus it’s just after eclipses. Normally when we have such an intuitive water moon, I will request you to be on water close to large sea but right now with Neptune very powerful in Pisces and this full moon in sign of God of Sea, I will not suggest that cause potential flooding of house , countries, emotions is very much possible.

What else can we derive from this experience ?
Virgo sun makes us harsh with ourselves picking out flaws , what this weekend also provides us the opportunity to do is add a gentle balm to our rough edges and it’s not about ignoring or hiding the flaws the imperfections, it’s about accepting all of you with the flaws and all. Seeing beyond the smudge, seeing beauty beyond the earthly defects, the scratches the scrapes time passage causes inside out, as it’s the last zodiac it’s end of a cycle. It’s feeling our blessings and allowing them to come in, push vs receptivity. Mars has dominated this season causing conflicts, harshness, pushiness, making it happen, not getting anywhere energy; let’s put our swords down, it’s a battle of hurting ourselves.

Don’t try to be anyone, no fire, no talk, no discussion, no arguments, yet not empty, cup full, relax every cell of your body so you can be.

Sun in Virgo wants us to be productive it knows till it puts a pause on the hurting, this directionless push, we won’t get to doing the real work. That’s what this moon is, our flight from reality so we can manifest our earthly goals by harnessing the potential within us.

It’s a Sunday it’s important to treat that day as God intended it to be, I can tell you there is no other day of this year I will pick for you to focus on you.

Good luck and I will see you on the other side 💫✨✨

Let it all go …The Enlightened full moon in Sagittarius

“But if we’re strong enough
To le t it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go… let it all go let it all go “

~ David Rhodes / Jasmine Van Den Bogaerde

After the reality check of Saturn Venus and the Plutonic heavy intense dig deep spit your gut out weekend it’s time to move over to the bright side 💫 , with the enlightened Full Moon in Sagittarius 🌝 throwing the light of truth, higher purpose, adventure, travel and bravery on one part of your life. Depending on where in world you are, you should see it in its full glory on 29th or 30th May and effects last for two weeks for everyone but for a life time if it aspects your personal planets around 8 degree of Sagittarius e.g. your Sun if you were born around 29th Nov to 2nd Dec this will bring some very big part of your life, your job your relationship to a close to start new chapter.

Full moon as we know bring something to completion probably something started in Dec of last year taking some form or shape over the next two weeks. This full moon is flower moon it’s time for wildflowers of all colours to bloom in their way to show up as their true self. Saggis have no pretence and neither does this moon it’s truth time and time to let go of whatever is holding you back from being your true self. He is a warrior he is an archer he aims for the higher meaning of your life plus the nodes , north node south node Rahu ketu whatever you would like to call them I call them the path to our destiny , why we came to this world ; this path flows with this full moon so see where it’s taking you cause that’s not just for now it’s nudging for a longer term goal.

We have done a bit of healing a bit of taking a stance now, it’s time to change the season and celebrate the clarity we are getting on our life and bring some chapter of our life to close so we move to the next. This is also celebrated as Vesak Day or Buddha Purnima in Easter part of the world to celebrate the life of Buddha and the enlightenment he brought to the world. Vedas celebrate the Soma that was poured over Buddha making him and his teachings immortal. All sorts of animals insects were set free on this day to mark this day of liberation. If we love our true life the legacy we leave is immortal while everything else is just for a moment. So what are you creating to honor your higher purpose ?

Full moons are also time of oppositions of heightened emotions , this is opposition between Gemini and Sagittarius part of your life so the part where you go get detailed information show your skills and where you aim for a higher life , it’s about balancing not getting sucked into too much details vs getting the bigger picture. And it’s perfect time to get the big picture with the Grand water trine joining the party. Venus in Cancer joins end of this week the Creative spiritual Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces water trine. So wherever water signs are in your chart they flow together this week bringing in the right support for you to see the big picture of your life.

It’s time of joy happiness but also of staying away from excesses which the rule of Saggistrius Jupiter could also bring specially as I talked about in last post we try to not go over the board with the emotions and self delusion cause Water trine is about receiving not pushing. It’s feminine energy it believes in asking and expecting to receive vs push full force. You would give up the positivity this Grand trine promises if you give in to the dark side of emotions and the impulsive reckless energy here.

The commitment weekend … Weekend Astrology Horoscope

It’s not as easy as wrong or right
And it ain’t always black and white
Life’s a thousand shades of gray…
~ J. Michael Harter ( no EL James didn’t come up with that! )

Tender nurturing security seeking Venus in Cancer leads with the heart, eats it’s heart out, cuddles up and drowns in sea of flowers or goo. It could lack judgement and perspective and as I last warned Neptune aspect might make it all too emotional and well romantic idealistic; but look who comes this weekend to town to this mush party none other than perspective himself : Saturn in its ruler in all its strength and glory to ask us : “I Do” or “I Don’t”. Opposition it is but that’s what we need reality check and the push to do the right thing. Sun Mars trine get those big guns out , the push to move forward and do the right thing. Take a call, you live all but once but living the wrong life you die every day. Chiron the wounded healer Sextile this Sun Mars drive, digging deep and giving us the impetus to realise why we are not taking a call, call to move on and to heal. It’s Sun in Gemini season people , yes yes I know Moon in Scorpio is sobering but it’s soulful so I am not saying it’s time to paint the sky with his or her name : it’s commitment time , to yourself or to someone or to something or some work or some habit or some future that you always wanted. Pick a side , I know it’s Gemini season but to go to the fun side take a call.

Remember we talked about the season to be clean inside out and the beautiful Jupiter Neptune trine that just went exact. All those supportive energies exist for us to be in the know. But only you know what’s right for you so stop looking outside, use the Moon in Scorpio and ask yourself and you will stick with the answer that’s the promise of this Saturn to you!

Now for those who want a piece of goo listen to my choice of Venus in Cancer facing Saturn song below and those interested in more detailed horoscope for this weekend by sign can scroll down 🙂

Aries take a call on your house or living situation and take care of your family obligations. Taurus are you going to take that course to add a new skill set. Gemini I know it’s birthday month but will you be trying to bridge earning drop due to tight financial support. Cancer how you would to move forward as a person in this relationship. Leos you are working hard at work but is this just the means to an end or your destination , ask the hard question is this you ? Virgo is it friendship or is it Long term love. Libra time to sober up about buying or not that property. Scorpio what’s your message, you have learned it right but are you communicating it right ?
Saggis let’s put a lid of self respect to too much carnal , your full moon is coming might be time to put an end to few things or relationships. Capricorn truly you do or you don’t : propose or dispose please. Aqua the smartest of the lot don’t be fooled about your health take a call loss or health! No brainer time to kick a habit. Lastly my sweetest Pisces fun should always be life’s goal but are we indulging someone or something without an eye for Long term.

Dream a little dream of me

“Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me”
~ Fabian Andre / Gus Kahn / Wilbur Schwandt


When dreamy Neptune 🌊 floats the romantic Pisces energy towards the planet of expansion Jupiter in deep passionate hot damn sign Scorpio what do you think comes out – steam dah!

Except this time versus being pure carnal ( well you do what you have to do) , it’s more spiritual cause it’s water trine and Neptune, I know it’s not Uranus but it’s still a bolt of lightning hitting you and giving you the cosmic download of your why ?

Why did I loose someone , why did I get this health issue ,why aren’t things working out at work, why would that lousy coworker not leave me alone, why did this guy look too good to be true ( well if you found him this month he is 🤯🤯🤯 ).

I don’t want you to underestimate the power this rare outer planet transit has on your personal life – why ? Cause Jupiter is calling the shots here – it rules Pisces and Neptune is in Pisces hence the depositor etc let me not blind you with science 💫 – this is all way to strong to ignore and why ignore positive aspect – well almost positive.

With Neptune you can’t be sure , it deludes it alludes and Jupiter makes every illusion bigger even in the most perceptive Scorpio so yes dream a little dream of him or it but be sure you wear your Virgo moon hat later in the week to suss them out. DO NOT GET MANIPULATED. Don’t tell me I didn’t tell you and don’t cry a river or maybe do if it heals you. Cancer Scorpio Pisces specially born between : 7-9th July, 7-9th Nov and 7-9th Mar or any personal planets between 17-19 degree in these signs ; this is your tribe it’s water trine time so soak in creativity love romance music dance higher learning whatever brings you closer to your definition of God.

You got every hidden corner of your life blowing up coming into light so you can heal it , that’s what Jupiter in Scorpio wants – he wants to repair you and prepare you for all the fun Jupiter in Sagg is going to get us end of the year ( ah sweet November 🎶 )

Aries yes whatever you lost or whosoever you lost during destruction of Uranus it’s time to heal that. It’s perfect energy for that. Taurus can’t help go on a trip with their significant other physically or figuratively to get the friendly energy back in their marriage or relationship. Gemini health issues came out in open work issues came out in open what’s not working came out let’s get creative at work and that’s going to fix it

Cancer intense love just got too spiritual and kids are teaching what life couldn’t, they have got wisdom listen to them 🤗

Leo’s are busy bringing healing transformation at home – just beware of water leakage at home🌊

Virgos are selling it, bringing ideas to table and their spouses are helping it

Libras are getting creative with work and health increasing their networth and self worth

Scorpios are romantically creative and bringing fun to their work and how they look

Saggs got a lot of healing going on behind the scene before it’s all expanded and their family is helping out and joining them to rebuild

Cappis can’t help but network and use their communication skills to get to more and more people on bigger and bigger things

Aquas its time to shine professionally and get creative to get your networth and self worth

Pisces bring your best teaching to the world or find the right guru travel to your new spritial destiny

All signs enjoy the healing and love this beautiful sky is bringing , ask the question, be open and accept

Namaste🙏

Ready for the new decade ?

No it’s not just an astrological phenomena, you can look around yourself, how many of the people you know are finding their own way of making money and the shackles are off. And yes to some extend that was last decade of Uranus in Aries start up era but that’s not all that it is. Humans survived this inhospitable earth – yes it has enough tools to survive but more to kill you as well – how? Because we evolved. So the fittest around you are already evolving to this new financial era. Even Trump the lowest form of life is evolving cause it knows how to survive – all this volatility in markets is man made or Trump made to be sure there is enough ways for him to make his material worth with this volatility. I don’t want to get into that cause it’s not a political discussion or “fake news” ! But I am giving his example as he doesn’t get a lot of things but economic evolution he gets. That’s why I am writing this as it was said by one of the icons of revolution that it’s a sin to hold back what we know.

This is the evolution of how we make money my friends , how we make our self worth play out in the real world but showing up, not in parts not half hearted but all of us, all in.

It’s a phenomena that would mark the end of this Neo slavery age that we are living. So it’s time to get out of your comfortable Taurian zones of how you are making money or at the very least dazzle your work place with some changes in how you do things. Specially my fellow Arians it’s very much about the money and your resources , the area where you most like the stability and where you have the inertia to go with the regular pay check. As I was telling one of my friends when a train moves and you fall you don’t blame the train, just your inertia and the fact that you were not ready … I am just asking you to be ready.

Look at your full armor your God gifted talents and see where can I create value from or get what you are truly worth from the talents you are using right now.

That’s the only way to honor start of this new era and make sure you aren’t getting negative returns as life as a whole inflates and moves upward.

Astrologically while I mentioned in my last post which area of life for each sign would be zapped by it but planets in your natal chart take dominance over anything else. So someone with Uranus in first house in natal chart it would come naturally , it would be a shock but a shock they have lived all their life, these are the people we already see out there living it and showing us how to do it. While someone with Jupiter in first house, their good past karma or karma of their father would bring this new opportunity to their door step and all they need to do is make the best of it and so on. It’s a great time to look at those details to see how to create worth in this new era and as it’s called… moving with times 🙂

Light and love ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Finally the exalted self worth!

Yes it’s finally here the beautiful Taurian new moon just before the start of new seven year cycle of revolution in financial market ( did someone say treasuries reached seven year high ??? But let’s not get technical now , we have full seven years to do that ).

Right now it’s time for new start in our self worth and our material worth, to have the courage to get what we deserve and speak our values … put to words what we have been holding back, to set the right boundaries where we were not treated well. Cause your patience might have been taken for your weakness but that’s not what is it ; Taurus is a bull it’s not weak it’s patient yes persistent yes consistent yet but not weak. Mercury in Taurus and Venus in Gemini ; the exchange of rulers makes them strong and talk of finances come out in open so if you aren’t paid what you worth ( my dear Aries ) or treated what you worth in your personal relationships ( my dear Scorpios ) or creating the legacy that you deserve ( my dear Leos) or living in the abode that’s beautiful enough for your free spirited soul ( my dear Aquarius) or creating a life that deserves the beauty of all that Taurus stands for ; its time for Uranus to shake it and new moon to give you a new segue to.

And no I don’t intend to leave my rest of favourites on what areas would be shaken, evolved and hit with brilliance : cause for my dear Cancer it’s their friends or groups they belong to , for Virgos it’s the goals and their higher education and travel , for Libras it’s their partners’ resources and inheritance , for Sagittarius it’s their health , diet and day to day work, for Capricorn’s it’s new fun fun fun and for my dear expressive romantic Pisces it’s time to evolve their thinking, their ideas and communicate / teach the world what they know. My bestie Gemini it’s time to look into your dreams and what relaxes you and takes you away from worldly worries , may be a Long distance trip to hobbits awaits 🙂

You’re going to hear me roar!

Last drops of brilliance of Arian Uranus are working with Mercury squaring the Mars bringing us to sudden brilliance and impulsive action, giving us the energy to put this brilliance to tangible action and just sheer physical vitality of this Arian Moon. But the dark side of it could lead us to sudden outbursts , breaking and banging things hurting each other figuratively and physically even. It’s a square but it isn’t supposed to be hard cause we are even lucky when we are hit instead of being nudged by brilliance and we aren’t in the mood to hide or not say what we think. Pluto is looking to transform our persona very gently though it’s asking us to clear out the mess, look deep inside and it’s truly spring cleaning time but let’s go a bit deep cause how else would be build the new next week. Creative mood continues with Jupiter and Neptune so if your mood kicks in don’t forget whatever sings for you , deepest insights come when you are on a Creative Mission and after all it’s still the weekend !

Love and light
