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...

Astrology, Death and Disillusionment

I’m pissed, disillusioned and a little sad. I have thought and thought about writing this but I need to release it and give my thoughts. A well known Astrologer has twice made statements that I feel to be irresponsible and I feel the need to state how I would handle it. The first was that during a Pluto transit of the first house you could die. Well I have Pluto transiting my first house. Admittedly it’s there until I am 74 but I love my life and like the thought that I might be around for longer if I’m fit and healthy. But the words stuck. The second was that Pluto in the eighth house means that a partner will die. I also have Pluto in the eighth house. Now, I am not afraid of death. It’s a certainty for all of us until some scientist manages to come up with the secret to everlasting life. Which I am not sure I would even want anyway. It’s also obvious that many of us will have partners that die. Kind of a 50/50 chance that the partner will go first right? Okay mathematicians don’t bite me. There may be a statistic that proves which partner is likely to go first. But you get the picture! It’s my belief that making that flippant a statement is not the thing to do in a public forum or a personal reading. In a debate amongst astrologers it may be okay to discuss things like this as a possibility. Because that’s all they are. Pluto is deeper than that. I really don’t want to...
