The Divine Venus in Virgo

Venus is in Virgo from September 19 – October 13, 2017

If Venus in Leo is all about the bling, the Virgin sets the record straight. Virgo is, foremost, a realist, hardly diving into love affairs without considering how her potential paramour fits into the rest of her life. She is the busy bee, the worker bee who tirelessly gathers pollen for the Queen, not for herself, but because it connects to the endless stream of Divinity, where she belongs. She’s simply doing her part. [Read more…]

Simple Release Ritual

This is a simple way to shift stuck energy. I’ve used this method of working with relationship energy, spiritually, for years, and been amazed not only at the difference I’ve felt afterwards, but how others’ respond as if they were healed, too.

For forty days, March 4- April 15, 2017, Venus will move retrograde in the degrees of 13 Aries- 27 Pisces.

Retrograde Revaluations

For instance, like an eagerly anticipated trip to an ice cream store an hour away only to find out our favorite flavor has been discontinued, we may feel disappointed, a little cheated, and wonder why we spent so much time, effort or money on an activity, thing or person that ultimately left us feeling flat.

Aquarius New Moon: Get Radical

It’s Aquarius Moon time –time to nurture your inner radical. If you think of rioters, hippies and uni-bombers when you think of radicals, you may be surprised to learn the etymology of the word radical comes from the Latin word radix, which means root. Radical literally means “forming the root” or “going to the origin, essence”. Uranus/Aquarius reminds us that radical acts are only those that form and strengthen our essence, origin, truth.

9 Things To Do While Venus Is In Taurus

The sensual, physical world is your oyster while Venus transits the sign of Taurus (6/6-7/3 in 2017). Taurus is Venus’ home sign, which confers dignity upon all Venusian activities (art, pleasure, creativity, beauty, abundance, sensuality) undertaken during this time. Naturally, there are some sweet overlaps between Taurus and Venus –most of which revolve around relaxing, enjoying being in a physical body and appreciating this abundant, beautiful planet we call home.

In celebration of Taurus season, to kick-off Venus’ precession into Taurus, and help you make the most of it, here are 9 ways to lift your pleasure quotient up by at least a few hundred points (honestly, if you aren’t in bliss after trying these things, I don’t know how to help you.;) [Read more…]
