SEPTEMBER 2-DECEMBER 17: THE SHADOW ZONE (WARM UP & COOL DOWN)
OCTOBER 5: VENUS RETROGRADE AT 10 DEGREES OF SCORPIO
NOVEMBER 16: VENUS DIRECT AT 25 DEGREES OF LIBRA
DECEMBER 2: VENUS BACK IN SCORPIO UNTIL JANUARY 7, 2019
today Venus is officially clear of the shadow zone. this is the subconscious completion of the cycle. I’ve included all these fancy dates here because this is a chance to reflect on the entire Venus retrograde. what was happening around those dates? what relationships changed? what relationships ended? what people/places/things did your tolerance evaporate for? what people/places/things deepened in quality (not quantity, but maybe that too)?
I sat in a bath & realized that literally up until today, I was carrying around residue gunk-or whatever you get from the Underworld, where Venus was. Venus delved into my origin stories, desires for belonging, & the embodiment (or lack thereof) of my core values. what Underworld did Venus take you into? what cravings seduced you? Venus in sagittarius is next, so purge to make space now. go deep to get ready. remember, well-watered roots come before growth. if you feel you still got gunk, a bath or watery ritual could help…
speaking of sagittarius, we only have until Friday @5:22pm EST to enjoy the exuberant vitality. it’s been a weird sagittarius season, despite the glory of Jupiter in sag, because of all the planets in pisces we’ve been swimming with (Mars, Neptune, & not a planet but Chiron). sagittarius & pisces square each other- another reminder that we can’t go around, over, or under the incongruence or contradictions in our lives. we must go through, towards freedom. tonight (Monday @9:27pm EST) the Moon in aries trines (support through amplification) the Sun; if you want, take a moment to feel into one micro or macro initiative/action that would amplify your dreams. could you do it this week? the Sun trine innovative Uranus in aries on Thursday can assist as well.
Friday, the day before the bright & beautiful watery full Moon in cancer at zero degrees, is a potentially marvelous day. we have an exact trine (support through amplification) between Venus, planet of pleasure & Neptune, planet of inspiration. this almost directly followed by Mercury, god of communications conjunct (merged with) abundant Jupiter, both in sagittarius. carve out time for creativity, transcendental experiences, or whatever gets you blissed out. don’t be surprised by excessive candor, the nebulous, or talk that isn’t walked. anchor through enjoyment, surrender to flow, & tell the truth without expectations. practice keeping things light because it is a skill you will need during capricorn season—which will be here to ground us all soon enough.
facts not FOMO: current rates increase on December 22 & there are only 2 days left to work with me before 2019…what do you need to know about your transits?
