Venus Retrograde: How To Make The Most Of It

Venus Retrograde: How To Make The Most Of It

Tomorrow Venus goes retrograde (appears to go backwards from our perspective) until Sept 6. Now there is a lot of, in my opinion, fear and nonsense spouted about this retrograde (as there is Mercury retrogrades). I like to look at a deeper level than ‘your relationships will be up for review’ - though they will :).  I like to look at what it means at a deeper level for your souls evolution. Any retrograde has a purpose and the whole picture needs to be looked at! Venus turns retrograde at 0 degrees Virgo where she is conjunct with the fixed star Regulus. I know techy, but ignore this and skip to the message if you are not interested in learning some of the astrology. To cut a long story short we are, as I say often, moving into a New Astrological Age, the age of Aquarius (an age is around 2-2500 years). The age of personal freedom, originality, uniqueness, anarchy, unpredicability, socially conscious and a time that will honor diversity and difference. Many, many astrologers think we really started to move into the age of Aquarius when Regulus moved in Virgo from Leo in 2012. Now Regulus moves extremely slowly, 26000 years to move through all twelve signs. So it will be in Virgo for a long time. Now Regulus is kind of the royal star and astrologer Michael Lutin said: “We stand at this very moment on the threshold of a new age: the age of Regulus In Virgo. The Age Of The Common Woman. Looking back about two thousand years ago, we see that sometime around the time...

The Dark Of The Moon and Intentions

I find I am in a deeply introspective mood as we lead up to the New Moon in Virgo on Thursday morning. This is the dark of the moon, the balsamic phase, and is an important time of rest and rejuvenation.   Intuition and creativity is high, physical energy is low and sleep is important. I am pulled to dream and meander. If I follow the lunar cycles and choose to honor this time I go within and allow my deep intuition to tell me what no longer serves and what I want to manifest in my life.   This is the dreamtime when all the energies of the universe swirl around our own energies. This is when we can create real beauty and abundance in our lives. This is a time to break free of that which holds us back.   As I tune into these phases more and more I instinctively know what needs to end. I brought three things in my life to an end in the last couple of days. Things that no longer serve. Things that, having gone, will open up space for the new in my life. Things that will create freedom to move forward.   And now I dream of my intentions. Before I sleep tomorrow night (Wednesday night) I shall have written my intentions to the universe for the next cycle. My dreams of abundance in all areas of my life and my dreams of changes I want to make in my life. I shall remember that the New Moon is in Virgo with a focus on service, being of use...
