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...
Taurus: Time to Ground And Know Your Core Values

Taurus: Time to Ground And Know Your Core Values

Taurus I know it well. My Mum has a Taurus sun along with Mercury and Uranus in Taurus. It’s who comes to mind every time I think of Taurus energy. She loves to cook. She loves to entertain. She loves to indulge. She loves comfort. And she’s steady. And stubborn. She won’t be pushed. She’s deliberate and loyal. Taurus rules the throat, neck and thyroid and she had her thyroid gland removed at a fairly young age. Taurus is sensual and my Mum likes to feel good. Taurus loves a happy, harmonious and stable home. And that, for the most part, is the energy I grew up in. Taurus is fixed and boy does she have some set ideas. Taurus is earth. My Mum wears earth tones almost all the time. It’s the most earthy of all the signs and is the sign most connected with nature and the body and all things manifest, including money. Taurus is ruled by Venus and, therefore, likes to be surrounded by things that are pleasing and soothing to the senses. Taurus is the most material of all the signs but it’s more about reward for persistence and their steady drive towards their goals. We are very different. But there she is on the cusp of my fourth house. The house of the childhood home. The house ruled by Cancer and the moon, the great mother. And the house of family history and traditions. The house of our roots. And the house of the home that we create. I am deeply connected to my maternal ancestors. I never felt that way about my paternal...

Take A Long Cool Look At Love

For the next four months we have Venus in Capricorn which is inviting us to take a long, cool look at love. Venus is the female principle. She is love, relationships, beauty, harmony and wealth. Capricorn is discipline, ‘common’ sense (whatever that really is), boundaries, responsibility and reliability. And Venus is in Capricorn for four whole months as it will retrograde in this sign.   So what does this mean for us? To me this is another astrological event that gets a bad rap. I have seen many saying that it’s a cold place and the like. Well yes, it can be. But not always.   ‘Love is what makes the world go around’. ‘Love is all we need’. These and so many sayings about love. People crave love and want to feel loved. But what is love?   Lasting love is not the slush of romantic novels. Well for sure that’s maybe the START of love. But true love that lasts goes deeper and needs work. Love is an act, a verb, something that we do.   Lasting love is not giving so much that you lose yourself in relationships. And that applies to your partner, your children, your close friends. Whoever is significant in your life. Lasting love starts with loving yourself first and foremost. Yes, really.   And this is one of the lessons of this long period of Venus in Capricorn. During this time we will have the strength to really look at our relationships and see where the patterns and structures no longer serve us. We can look at our own part in unhealthy...
