*VIRGO* 2014 ~ Solar & Lunar Guidance

MONTHLY *SOLAR* GUIDANCE: As the Sun moves in to Virgo (8/23 - 9/22), it activates the *Annual* Check-In with your Personal System & Daily Routine, is it healthy & sustainable? This is preparation for the *Harvest* on multiple levels and particularly potent for the *Mutable* Family ... VIRGO *Initiation* ~ PISCES *Integration* ~ GEMINI/ SAGITTARIUS *Test/Growth*. The energy this month supports you assessing your strengths and weaknesses and re-committing to balancing your soul-work (Pisces) with your daily work (Virgo); allowing the fragmented aspects (Virgo) of life to come in to a cohesive whole (Pisces); and focusing on the little things (Virgo) that make the grand vision (of your life) work (Pisces).
We are coming out of Fixed energy (Leo), which has activated both the need to stabilize certain things, as well as release (permanently) some aspect of Self, so that your life can actually work, in the physical reality you're currently living. That said, no matter how bad it is, change really is only one decision and a renewed commitment away. We are now moving in to Mutable energy of Virgo, which is going to help us process & assimilate all that has died/left/ended and make the necessary arrangements for new life to come in and thrive. Think: Nesting in the sense that you are preparing space for something new in your life. But because it is Virgo, it is more about how this new life/energy/direction is going to actually work in to your natural rhythm & routine.
*IF* you made a ton of new connections & friends recently, and all your creativity activated, and your heart engaged, then Virgo energy comes in and helps you create a new system and help you get used to your new rhythm. It's time to create a whole new daily routine that better supports who you are and are becoming. We're all finding various systems and routines (that have historically worked) are now obsolete and no longer work (for whatever reason). That is always a clear indication that it is time for a new one. And *IF* you are able to create one (while tweaking and leaving it open to ongoing revisions in the beginning), then when Libra comes next month, you'll be able to really make those connections with others, personally or professionally, and create some powerful new relationships & collaborations.
HOWEVER, if you have spent the last month of Leo examining your own self-worth, wondering why you magnetize certain things & people, and repel others, and generally feeling like the life you're living does NOT reflect who you are in your heart-of-hearts, then this month of Virgo will help you heal aspect(s) of Self that will enable you too, to take advantage of coming opportunities in Libra.
That said, another round of Cardinal energy is on the way (along with Eclipses in Aries & Scorpio), so use Virgo to restore your energy, replenish your Self, tend to your health & fitness, and create a daily practice that supports your current goals & aspirations. If you are resistant to doing whatever it takes to strengthen that trust within (your intuition), just note that the road will be that much more challenging for you. If you resist change and seek to control anything or anyone outside of Self, you are in for a bumpy & painful ride. If you want things to "go back", you will be disappointed. So rather than resist the changes disrupting your life at this time, try silence, deep breaths, and intuitive, heart-centered decision-making. Use the earthy, practical energy of Virgo to direct the powerful, current flow of energy, get *Present* to 'here & now' and take things one step at a time.
*VIRGO* is the *best* time of the year (Aug-Sept) to:  

  • Release guilt & regret and Embrace the value of each experience's lesson, while forgiving your Self & others along the way.
  • Release criticism & judgment and Embrace compassion & patience with the process of activating your new rhythm & routine.
  • Release the need to have everything "perfect" before expressing it and Embrace trusting your Self to know how to respond in any moment.
  • Release all petty distractions & people-pleasing and Embrace your inner authority to direct your own life (consciously).
MONTHLY *LUNAR* GUIDANCE: This month I'd like to first share that a common theme has been emerging recently: healing between Fathers & Daughters. So, for those of you feeling that too, or in need of such a healing, this month, it is tremendously supported. In a less personal and more broad sense, it is also yet another recalibration of the Masculine & Feminine energy within & around us that was activated in a huge way with the turn of 2012. On so many levels, we must heal our individual connection to the Masculine ~ how we (male or female) express it, as well as how we receive it from the actual men in our life. Light a candle, do some forgiveness prayer-work if you feel called to do so, as it is a tremendously potent time to heal & release the past once and for all. For further validation, this month's Lunar & Solar Guidance gave us Earth Mother for the Sun in Virgo and ALL 4 Fathers ~ Earth, Fire, Water & Wind ~ for the weekly Lunar Guidance. This too reflects the *balance* of Masculine & Feminine, and possible role-reversals within & without that are necessary.
To honor the Masculine "things to do/express/outward" energy of the Sun in Virgo, we must use the Earth Mother's Feminine energy to honor all 4 Elements in order to be productive in the world. She indicates that if we pay attention to how the Elements work ~ both constructively & destructively ~ we can be much more effective players in the world.
To honor the Feminine "things to feel/reflect/inward" energy of the Moon in Virgo (and Mutable Signs of Sag, Pisces & Virgo), we must use each Element (each week), adapting, flowing & changing consciously as the energies move & shift. Here, we will use our Masculine energy to "do something" about what our Feminine energy is feeling. Note that this is not to say change with every passing mood, but moreso to be flexible and responsive to where the energy is flowing and where it is blocked or stagnant, then make a decision & act accordingly (or not). Your Feminine intuits what is happening, as well as the proper response. Your Masculine responds, makes the decision and follows through on your behalf.
The Virgo New Moon (8/25) comes every year and presents us with an opportunity to reboot the *System* ~ which usually entails creating a whole new routine as well. Theoretically, during the last Lunation (Leo/Aquarius), we decided what we were going to *express* (more authenticity) and *invest in* (more value/new priorities), both Self & Community. Now, Virgo-time supports integrating all that you have learned about your core essential nature (Leo) recently, into a new routine and creating a completely new System for living, that will support you better in the here & now. It's time to digest, assimilate & integrate the last 9-months specifically. Also deeply supported this month is acknowledging (and releasing) any *regrets*, mourning any true losses or deaths and deepening your dedication to that which is vital, strong, healthy & evolving (within & around you).
Pre-Harvest *Assessments* (Aug/Sept) always reveal what does or does not support your Physical & Spiritual Selves. Twice a year (Feb/Mar & Aug/Sept), we have to take time out to check in on the Physical Body (Virgo) & Spiritual Being (Pisces). If you're healthy, great! But if you have pushed yourself to the limits, it's time to pull-back and recalibrate. We also have to check in with our Spiritual Being. If your practice is strong and supporting you, great! But if you have neglected your yoga or meditation, silence or sleep, again, this is the best time to recalibrate. This is *pause for maintenance* time, which leads to Libra New Moon (9/24) when *NEW* Relationships & Collaborations will present themselves and you want to be as clean (Virgo) and centered & clear about the vision (Pisces) for your life as possible by then.
With Virgo energy, we can get "stuck" on the little things, lose our perspective and block our own flow. Please understand that doing the tasks that are supported by the energy (ie, get organized, take inventory, clean up & clear out in preparation for working/playing with others in Libra) - doing what is supported - will just make it easier to get things done, as well as facilitate better results, so don't resist the energy at this time. Right now, we are all being asked to take a time-out to Assess, Digest & Assimilate all that has been stirred up in the past 9-months. It is time to Process & Integrate what is working and release that which is not. What - or I should say - Who did you *seed* with the Aries New Moon back in March 2014? Each month has led you to this point and Virgo time always asks the questions:  What is practical? And what can your individual system actually handle and maintain?
Sagittarius First Qtr Moon (9/2) indicates that the first step toward your Virgo New Moon  (8/25) Intentions and has something to do with owning the *new truth* of who you are on a Heart-Level (Leo). Virgo time (Aug-Sept) brings the annual *personal* assessments that will create the new *system* to support the "new you" that you discovered during the last month in Leo, so this whole month is basically about creating a new routine for your new Self. Use this week to activate the new routine, be hopeful & optimistic but most of all, be fired up about Life and future possibilities. Our guidance for this week reminds us that Fire needs a proper container & guide to be useful and we should always be attuned to the Elements (which also keeps coming up) and how they work and affect our lives. Fire Father says, " order to remain successful, in addition to staying consciously attuned, he must balance the fiery part of himself with the other major elements: Earth, Wind and Water. Connection with these elements - EARTH for grounding; WIND for rational thinking; WATER for emotional commitment - will both fan and temper his flames." I think Fire Father represents Sag energy really well: "the master of growth, inner development, and increased perception." Use this week's energy for what it is good for and expand the vision of your life (along with taking a tangible step ; -)).
The Pisces Super Full Moon (9/8) brings an Annual opportunity to *Release* any/all illusions/delusions about who you are or how you're living. At this time, more than ever, your Inner Truth must *match* your Outer Reality ~ we are encouraged to be *congruent*. In other words, those who are most in-alignment within & without ~ those who are living Authentic lives, are moving through with a relative amount of ease & grace. Please don't confuse this with not having any challenges, loss or disappointment, just that navigating & decision-making is a lot easier when your Private Life and Public Image are congruent. If you are living a life completely contrary to your core essential Nature, then you are probably feeling the energies of change most intensely, but also supremely supported for the integration & wholeness.
Some describe it like going to a lavish party, having a great time (Illusion) and then, unexpectedly, receiving the bill (Reality). We are all "paying" for our own illusions, delusions & denials, to the degree that we each have them (everything is customized for the individual even though these are social & collective energies affecting us all). Anyway, big illusion - big bill, small delusion - small price. Either way, you're accountable so use this Super Full Moon to truly look at that which is being most brightly *Illuminated* for you personally and use the energy to transcend that which has historically held you back.
This Super Full Moon is an opportunity to *Release* all that you discovered is no longer part of the *System* of your life. Upgrades are necessary periodically and this is an *Annual* chance to create space for you to *Integrate* ~ your healing ~ your wholeness ~ your Truth ~ and ultimately your faith in Self & the Universe!! Fears, phobias and unhealthy fantasies, which delude and delay, can now recede with the tide, returning to Gaia/Mother/Source, as She who knows the proper blessing to cleanse & infuse them with the love and light that transforms them in to useful, imaginative ideas and creative solutions that are Based ~ Sourced ~ Rooted ~ within your own unique individual SoulSelf.
This Super Full Moon in Pisces is a potent opportunity to flush your entire system of the past and any toxicity which may be creating blockages in the flow of your life. Pause, assess and decide. The next step will become obvious once you do that. Even the Guidance speaks to the answer being more accessible if you be still and listen for your intuitive guidance, then trust it and act on your own behalf! Virgo/Pisces is all about learning to trust your body (gut instincts) as well as your intuition (inner knowing) but naturally, it becomes a practice throughout your life.
The Gemini Last Qtr Moon (9/15) brings a final push to change your mind, in some way, to align with your heart, or perhaps a change of heart will reveal the logical next step. This month is preparation for Fall Equinox & Libra time, when whoever is magnetized in to your energy field will reflect an aspect of your Self that you have *perfected* over the last 6-months to 1-year ... and conversely, what you may still have to work on a bit. Either way, all your personal, individual work in the last 6-9 months has led to *here* and the Mutable *Thinking & Perceiving* Virgo/Pisces is leading to Cardinal *Action & Choices* of Libra/Aries in the realm of who you are and what you want, in both your public & private relationships. There will be a natural evolution toward radically new & different support systems, relationships, partnerships & collaborations (don't resist who's leaving or coming in, just watch with detachment at first) with the Libra New Moon (9/24). And there will be a natural evolution within you (each individual), as you release that which is no longer really who you are or what you want, to the tune of 20-years, that will be activated by the Aries Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (10/8). (Your frame of reference for this 19-year lunar cycle is:  The Last Aries/Libra Eclipses + Libra North Node:  1995-1997 and the Last Aries/Libra Eclipses + Aries North Node:  2004-2006.)
As you prepare for your own next level of self-expression and personal work, this week's Guidance indicates that even though you may be processing a lot of thoughts & ideas all at once, you are supported to move in the right direction, if/when you take in to account your "spiritual, loving and physical being." Wind Father suggests a starting point is your own conscience, and offers some relevant questions to reflect on as you consider upcoming decisions. "To discover, utilize & apply his fullest ability, the Wind Father needs to tune in to his conscience. Of the product of his analytical process, he should ask:  Is it safe? Is it good? Is it important? Does it matter? Will it preserve and enhance the Mother Earth? Will it relieve the suffering of humanity?"
In closing, all the Masculine/Father guidance (Divinations) really supports another recurring theme: developing a positive animus within (Divine Masculine) and this goes for both men & women. The way I'm defining Masculine is that aspect of our SoulSelf that guides us to (1) maintain integrity, (2) create the guidelines to follow, (3) maintain proper boundaries, and (4) negotiate on your behalf. These are all things we can cultivate & develop with our evolved consciousness and energetic support of the global shift. Ultimately, Virgo energy is all about being practical, natural & healthy. And somehow, we ALL need to integrate our Masculine/Feminine on one or many levels, and since integration never happens all at once (but is a gradual daily process), Virgo-time gives us support (each year) to stabilize or eliminate something for the sole purpose of strengthening & fortifying our system in general.

August 2014 ~ Heart & Soul is Activated & Engaged

Click Here for Audio Update
7.31.2014 (30-min/MP3)

Heart & Soul ~ is being activated within and around us! Leo & Scorpio ~ energies & lessons for all! Leo is your Heart, the lesson of Self-Love and is about knowing & expressing your Authentic Self. Scorpio is your SoulSelf, the lesson of understanding, containing & directing your power, your power to create life, trust your instincts and navigate this world. For the next 4-6 weeks, we have increased access to these energies and the support to animate them anew.
Mars in Scorpio plus all the personal planets animating the Leo energy/lessons, brings a personal challenge to grow and integrate inner & outer, masculine & feminine, and in this case, our Heart & Soul. Additionally, both social planets are engaged as well, Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Scorpio, indicating personal decisions have long-range effects on our Truth & Purpose specifically.
This is a time of choice between light & shadow, positive & negative, masculine & feminine ~ we need BOTH, but we need balance & integration to be effective players. If you can stay in the Light, aligned with your Authentic Self and expressing from the Heart, then you will make choices regarding your Truth & Purpose that will support you going forward. If you give in to fear, paralytic dread & powerlessness, then you may experience loss & abuse until you own your power and connect to & honor your Soul's desire.
~ Leo/Fire & Scorpio/Water ~
~ Heart & Soul ~
~ Outer Self & Soul Self ~
~ Authentic Self & Inner Power ~
~ Creative Fire & Creative Flow ~
~ Truth & Purpose (Jupiter & Saturn) ~
~ Inner Masculine & Inner Feminine (Mars & Venus) ~
We need all of the above! We ARE all of the above! This month, these creative forces are at a 90-degree angle to eachother - they are building something together. Square = Test/Growth/Development/Choices/Decisions + out of comfort zone, into new territory. There is a creative solution to ALL the challenges & extremes but we must learn how to balance & use these forces as individuals. This will be our work over the next 4-6 weeks.
7/22 - 8/23 ~ Sun in Leo infuses us every year with some light and energy to touch base with our true heart-of-hearts. Theoretically, we anchor our personal security issues in Cancer so that we are SAFE to be ourselves in the world once we hit Leo. Do you love who you are and do you feel safe being yourself wherever you go?
7/26 ~ Moon in Leo happens once a month, so you can work it on a micro-level within your regular monthly routine. However, the New Moon in Leo only happens once a year and gives you added energy & juju to set new intentions around your magnetics ~ what you magnetize and what you repel, just by be being YOU. How can you do that a NEW way and present a newly anchored/integrated aspect of Self to the world?
7/31 - 8/15 ~ Mercury, like our minds, moves very quickly through the zodiac, slowing down 3-4 times a year for a retrograde (which extends its stay in a particular Sign/Element). In Leo, it is an activation of your creative expression. It's about expressing or communicating something from the heart, in a dramatic & inspiring way! However, the Shadow of that is arrogance, a need to be "right" and disinterest in how you are received. That said, you may also reflect on July/Aug 2012 and what creative ideas came up then because that is the last extended stay in Leo and probably left an impression.
8/12 -9/5 ~ Venus in Leo activates your sense of Self-Worth in love, finances and social situations. Venus, as it travels through the zodiac (which takes 18-months) illuminates the values & priorities of the time. In this case, it is fun, sex, games, theatre, drama, passion & copious amounts of creative fire needing both containers and free-range outlets (that are safe). This is the time to align with your own Heart, and determine what kind of fun you can bring to the party, as well as who else you want at your party to play with. If you're struggling, like many are, to create new social settings and be part of groups that better reflect your Inner Artist, then this is the time to set your intentions.
7/25 - 9/13 ~ Mars in Scorpio brings a sort-of ‘final exam’ post 8-months in Libra! We’ve been recalibrating the Masculine/Feminine dynamic (Dec 2013 - July 2014), exploring new ways of expressing 'who we are' and 'what we want', with a special focus on how we relate with others, both personal & professional. As Mars now moves thru Scorpio, your Soul weighs in and tests you AND your relationships. Imbalances (within or with others) will be glaring & obvious and must be corrected or things simply will not work. We are definitely working on Higher Will/Lower Will issues; how you use and express power to get what you want out of life. Mars connects with Saturn in Scorpio on August 25th (once-in-28-yrs/last: 1984) to conceive a new Reality that better reflects who you are/what you want, on a Soul Level ~ Here & Now.

*LEO* 2014 ~ Solar & Lunar Guidance

MONTHLY *SOLAR* GUIDANCE: As the Sun moves in to Leo (7/22 - 8/23), it activates the *Annual* Check-In with your Heart & Authentic Self, are you being true to YOU? and expressing your unique *Light & Brilliance* ~ from the inside out? Leo energy activates your Self-Love/Self-Worth issues. As you discover your unique strengths & gifts, it becomes your responsibility to share them with the Community to which you belong. There is an old idea that "whatever's inside comes out" (especially under external pressures) ... so if you are full of Love & Light, then a generosity of Spirit comes out ... if you are full of Fear & Doubt, then obstacles and blockages come out.  What's inside you? in your true heart-of-hearts? Now more than ever, we must be congruent with our Inner & Outer Natures in order to thrive & evolve. If we are "serving two masters" (or incongruent on one or many levels) ~ having the private side of your nature be too drastically different from that which you present to the world ~ then you're going to have challenges, blockages and delays until you get into more alignment. Leo energy teaches us all how to BE it (your Authentic Self), not just "appear" to be it; it asks that you know who you are (and next month, Virgo will perfect it ;-)). What has changed on a *fundamental* level (Cancer/Capricorn ~ personal/professional) for you, that has now made you aware of how vital it is to honor your essential nature (Leo/Sun), so you are able to contribute to the whole (Aquarius/Uranus) in a more useful and delicious way?
Leo time brings us the Mid-Point between Summer & Fall, activating the Gate of Power as well as the annual Pre-Harvest. It is the time of year when we assess what we can preserve and build on, in time to have a good Harvest come Fall Equinox (9/22) that will then carry us to Winter Solstice (12/21). This time is potent, especially for the *Fixed* Family ... LEO *Initiation* ~ AQUARIUS *Integration*~ TAURUS/SCORPIO *Test/Growth*.  This time of year, every year, is considered the time of 'pre-harvest' and it is a celebration, as well as an early assessment of all that you, the individual, has been able to create or contribute. It is time to assess and celebrate how far you have come, how much you have manifested and your overall progress for this year so far. This is where you are, at a crossroads or turning point, when depending on your harvest, it is time to plan the next leg of your journey. Using Leo's heart-centered faith & confidence, as well as child-like joy & hope, you will radiate light and magnetize all that you need, desire & deserve!
An added, expanding element is Jupiter moving in to Leo (7/16) for the first time in 12-years!! This will expand & illuminate the lesson of courage, authenticity and deep self-love. When you're connected and truly love your Self, it is easy to give/receive and share/attract LOVE! When you operate from a confident, strong center, rather than insecure ego, you radiate LOVE and magnetize a similar (loving/confident) energy to you. Collectively, when you love and take care of your community, it can come together and create new, innovative structures & institutions which actually serve & support the needs of the people in the here & now. Your community can be free to grow, thrive & prosper, handling each blessing, as well as each challenge, that comes along. Cancer brought us out of the first quadrant of survival issues & basic needs to more of the individuation process (Leo) when we tend to focus more on asserting ourselves and integrating all that we learned in the last quarter. Leo is ruled by the Sun and the Sun represents your Source - your inner Light - and all that you have come to create & contribute to the community (Aquarius). Leo energy helps you expand the concept of who you are and what you are capable of, not to mention the value of the energy & service you provide to the community. Jupiter in Leo will teach us that we can ALL be free, when we ALL do our part.
MONTHLY *LUNAR* GUIDANCE: This month supports purging, purifying & stabilizing on multiple levels. An added, expanding element is Jupiter moving in to Leo (7/16) for the first time in 12-years!! So my Fixed Babies (and the Fixed areas of the rest of our charts) are up for a familiar *evolution* ~ LEO = Self-Love, Magnetism, Courage to be Authentic Self, Rooted/Sourced in the Heart & Radiant Creativity (among many other things and Shadow = ego & looking like something rather than 'being' it). So, while ALL of us will benefit from this infusion of fun, expansive, creative energy, my Fixed Babies will feel it the most intensely. This month's Lunation is our introduction to how it will feel on a *personal* level and the Divinations are AMAZINGLY specific & supportive!! The other thing that this entire year of Jupiter in Leo is activating & awakening us to - has to do with the next Venus Cycle (June 2015), whose theme will be LEO. Again, that will make it *personal* for us and this is preliminary groundwork. Jupiter is going to illuminate & expand ALL Leo concepts for a once-in-12-year Birthing of a New, more Authentic & Heart-Centered, Truth & Story.
The *LEO* New Moon (7/26) is annual *Initiation* of the New YOU! on a core, essential level.  It is time to reconnect with your Heart and begin to tap into the courage to live Authentically, here and now.  It's time to have 'Faith' in what you personally are here to express, this lifetime. Use this month to connect to a completely NEW way of expressing your true Self and the infinite creativity that wants to come through you. HINT:  Start with the Heart! What do you LOVE to experience? to express)?
The *SCORPIO* First Qtr Moon (8/3) which brings the first step ~ up and in to a new level of power for you. You are literally conceiving a New YOU! one that gets an annual makeover this time every year, but add Jupiter and bigger themes, tests & triumphs expand the possibilities in potent ways. Often, to move in new directions, a sacrifice or ending has to happen first. Make sure that your Soul and your Heart are communicating, then the new realms you may soon find yourself working & playing in, will be rich & rewarding. That said, the rewards will be equal to what to you believe you are worth; the sense of passionate purpose will be equal to how authentic & creative you can be, naturally. Scorpio represents Soul Level/Raw Truth, so this week may bring your breaking point, in that, you can no longer continue to 'go along to get along'. You will be forced to honor your Soul Self and take a brave step into the Unknown ... trusting your Heart and your own instincts! A deeper commitment to daily/ongoing (6th House) focus or active practice (Leo Sun) will set you up better, for living the Highest Truth (9th House) of your Soul (Scorpio Moon). This will enable you to express more Light and magnetize more beauty & abundance, and ultimately benefit from Jupiter's 1-year stay.
The Lunar/Sacred Season ~ *LEO* Gate of Power/Cross Qtr (8/7) is about *PRESERVING* what is growing strong, solid, useful and nourishing ... while releasing density, weight & excess to be composted in to something more useful in the season to come. It's a time of gratitude & celebration, in anticipation of the Fall Equinox season of Harvest. Some call this the Pre-Harvest. You can get a jump-start on assessing the year if you've completed your "clearing & releasing" process. If not, this is the final *purge* in preparation for the Harvest Season. Artemis, Goddess of Moon & Hunt is also associated with this Sacred Season and supports us this season to drop deep in to our Hearts (Leo) to connect with what we really love, and renew our dedication to that. It's time to position your Self for an expanded perspective at this time. Explore your options with fresh eyes! Allow your instincts to guide you on your Path and Trust the Divine Feminine within & around you, that She will *contain, nurture and protect* all life, now and always. Artemis reminds us to honor that which sustains us and to always aim your magical arrow at only the most precious dreams, your deepest heart's desire.
The *AQUARIUS* Super Full Moon (8/10) is the second of three in a row, flushing your systems of any residue of your former Self. No matter who you are, we have all been *upgraded* in a sense, rebirthed on multiple levels and we're only now beginning to truly assimilate 'The Shift of 2012' on a personal/individual level. It's time to make the connection between Head & Heart, between your Soul and your Personality and get them congruent, on the same team and working together for your greater good. Jupiter's once-in-12-year addition allows you a huge upgrade to your consciousness. Leo/Aquarius energy/lesson is all about learning who you are as a unique individual and then determining where you can contribute the most, to the collective community ... just be being your Self and loving who you are! This Super Full Moon has added *juju* to help you release anything blocking the full potential of embodying your essential nature and contributing your unique gift to the Collective. It's time to activate your most heart-centered, authentic Self & release all ego-attachment, self-righteousness, denial & rigidity.
You are deeply supported to release all that is no longer "truth" for you, on all levels. Begin the process of integrating these amazing new aspects you've recently discovered (or recovered) about your Self and HONOR who you have worked so hard to become! As you integrate on this new level, your ego may struggle against the shift. These inner urges (the ego) should be handled with strength & firmness, yet NOT repressed & broken or we lose power & potency to survive & make our way in life. As you allow both Spirit & ego to co-exist, assigning them both tasks best suited to their skills (and nature), you will discover your Authentic Self & Unique Gift. Often, we don't express the authenticity that would enable us to create fulfilling lives. It's time to practice being authentic, honoring your nature & sharing your gifts, until it's automatic. You can & will survive all the humiliations & defeats, and ultimately, emerge stronger, more vibrant and alive!
The *TAURUS* Last Qtr Moon (8/17) may bring some results or rewards of your recent labors, but ultimately, it is about evaluating what is sustainable for you, and what is not. Last Qtr Moon pulls your focus inward, to personally *feel* what needs to be further cultivated, and what needs to be released altogether. It's time to question the worth & value of what's in front of you at this time. Will it create more stability or chaos for you? and which would be more useful? It also demands that you do this processing in your BODY, literally, physically. If you've done all of the above Leo Self-Work of rebirthing your identity and who you are in the world, then this is the time to establish the base or foundation of that New YOU. Taurus' aspect of the base has to do with food, sex & money ~ our literal security needs and where any famine may be growing. What are you starving/thirsting/yearning for? Start there and add it to the new identity *brew*. The Guidance below reminds us of the value of balancing & activating the Elements in our lives & bodies (and planet). Essentially, YOU are the center-point, then you have Above & Below, Four Directions & Elements to work with:  Fire/South (your spirit), Water/West (your emotions), Wind/East (your intellect), Earth/North (your body).

*GEMINI* 2014 ~ Solar & Lunar Guidance

MONTHLY *SOLAR* GUIDANCE: As the Sun moves into Gemini, *Illuminates & Infuses* our ideas & thoughts, which are then *communicated* through our body language, our actual language/words, our energetic field (aura), our movements & sounds ~ ALL express something from within. We have both conscious & unconscious communication. I often play with the concept of an Inner Twin. Here's how it works: consider your own Sun, Moon & Rising Signs, and then go research their exact opposites. Aries/Libra ~ Taurus/Scorpio ~ Gemini/Sag ~ Cancer/Capricorn ~ Leo/Aquarius ~ Virgo/Pisces are the polarities. You will find a more balanced strength & inner knowing once you more fully understand your natural opposite.
Using this month's energetic support, consider all that you have accomplished with both the Aries (3.30.2014) and the Taurus Eclipse (4.29.2014) New Moons, then move in to *Present* Moment. If you anchored your Identity (Aries) and your Priorities (Taurus), then Gemini (5.28.2014) says, "It's decision time!" Based on the new revelations & integrations, choices will have to be made so you are in a better position to accommodate the new energies and master your NEW Rhythm. Be sure to dream forward ~ old dreams must be fired up with renewed lifeforce or released altogether. You're in very new territory, look around for resources & support nearby and explore new ways to use the support & resources you already have, in fresh, new ways. This is an *Annual* Activation for everyone, but for the *Mutable* Family, it can be more intense & personal ~ Gemini *Initiation* ~ Sagittarius *Integration* ~ Virgo/Pisces *Test/Growth*.
This month's Guidance took on a life of its own and we got two cards instead of the usual one. Perfect for Gemini that wants to honor both sides of everything! I pulled *Clarity* and *Many Tongues* jumped out. This is the challenge of NOW, the Field of Possibilities is wide open and there are more choices than ever before. Your Heart ends up being your true Inner Compass, the part of you that knows you best and will always choose for your Highest Good. When the Heart signs off on whatever choice/decision you're having to make, then you know you are operating from 'clarity'. However, if you allow your Mind to make the final choice/decision, often that *feels* divided within.   
Post-2012 is a clean slate, particularly where consciousness, knowledge & information are concerned. It's time think in radically new ways, this is beyond a rebirth of consciousness, this is altogether NEW consciousness that may take some longer than others to grasp and integrate fully. In the meantime, use this time, along with the support of the Summer Retrogrades, to turn within, take some time-outs and assess how far you've come, as well as the direction you're headed.
MONTHLY *LUNAR* GUIDANCE: This month supports process & assimilation exercises. What have you learned or discovered? that you now need to integrate as a true, earned *knowing*. If you do not integrate the changes you've been through, the choices you've made, the knowledge you've learned & the wisdom you've earned, then they never convert from ideas-to-bricks in a Base that supports you (of your own creation). Many will stay in 'overwhelm' or go even deeper at this point because this much information, that does NOT get filed or deleted, WILL overwhelm the system. Gemini time is a good time to review & explore the ideas, concepts & perceptions that have been revealed over the last 3-6-9-12 months. It's good to review last month's advice, because you'll need it again NEXT month (Cancer) when the 'fundamentals' are UP again. Now it will be about which of these ideas will nourish, support & protect you going forward. Choose ideas that have life & vitality, choose ideas that *feel* right from your Heart-Center, choose ideas that expand your life, rather than limit it. SIMPLIFY, PRIORITIZE & RE-DISTRIBUTE YOUR ENERGY/RESOURCES.    
The Pisces Last Qtr Moon (5/21) may be challenging you to get up and out of your comfort zone. Life and the World are beckoning and you may rather hit the 'snooze' button but I don't recommend it. Instead, take that same time to be still and invite the *Vision* for the day/week and as that clarifies, then you start moving. Tend to the most pressing items first and then go with the flow for the rest of the week. It is time to surrender some aspect of your Being and the instructions for what's next will come with next week's Gemini New Moon.
This leads to the Gemini New Moon (5/28) which is really the outcome of Gemini/Sag Eclipses 3-years ago (2010-2013). Those Eclipses carried us over the threshold of 2012 and NOW ~ we can make sense of it all and begin to activate some radically NEW ways of thinking, learning & expressing. How we process info and what we allow IN - now that the Field is Infinitely Open - forces us to rely on our own filters, boundaries & systems for living. It is time to live your own Truth, within the context of the larger, collective Truth. Gemini always activates the lesson of CHOICE, and now that we have so many choices, some more than others, we have to have a way of making the best choices for Self. The way to do that is to strengthen & fortify the *Head/Heart* Connection: allow the Head to present the variety of choices and the possibilities therein, then proceed to the Heart to sign off on what *FEELS* True & Right for YOU, personally. Anything good for YOU, is usually good for ALL. Think with your feelings!
The Virgo First Qtr Moon (6/5) totally supports the current assimilation process going on due to all the retrogrades, eclipses and rare, potent planetary alignments. As Above, So Below. What humans are directed to do is tend to the physical body, the vehicle that protects you as you navigate Earth. Virgo has to do with the systems for living, natural timing, the rhythm of life and of balancing being a Spirit in a physical body. We have to know ourselves, our natural rhythms as well as our natural limitations. These limitations shouldn't make you feel 'less than' but show you your own boundaries. Virgo is all about being practical and dealing with what's physically in front of you, no matter how stinky or scary it may be (think: Nurse Archetype). This week you prepare, assess & integrate what you can because next week, the Sag Full Moon will shine a bright light on that which is/isn't Truth for you.
The Sagittarius Full Moon (6/13) is exactly one year since the last Sag Eclipse (5.25.2013) in a series of 9 and you may feel like you've spent at least a year just clearing out that which no longer reflects your personal Truth. We are completely supported to pull back and process what is being illuminated at this time. The Summer Retrogrades are rolling in, Mercury included, whose primary purpose this go-round is to help you *Think with your Heart*. Also, this is the third of the *3* High Moons ~ the Lunations which usher in the Spring Festivals each year as life is renewed. They are as follows: Aries New/Libra Full Moon, Taurus New/Scorpio Full Moon & Gemini New/Sagittarius Full Moon. There are many cultures & belief systems that refer to these Full Moons in particular, which *AWAKEN* the life force energy (Aries/Libra), *Awaken* the Christ nature of unconditional love & acceptance, then *Awaken* the Buddha nature of compassion & forgiveness (Taurus/Scorpio), and finally, *Awaken* the wisdom & understanding that comes (Gemini/Sagittarius) every year, when all life, on a cellular level, is activated to seed & renew Life.

*GEMINI* 2014 ~ Assimilate All That You've Learned & Earned

Gemini ushers in a lighter, more playful energy. It is the Child on the Karmic Wheel, care free and detached, alert and curious, gathering information and telling imaginative stories, playing with new characters & different expressions of Truth. It is time to lighten up and breathe in the fresh air of Spring and know that Summer is coming.
Energetically, we've been through a process akin to the caterpillar-to-butterfly transformation and we must pause so our wings can fully open & activate. We have a moment (1-month) to get acclimated to our new, different, lighter form, as well as the new functions that we are capable of, those things we may have previously considered an impossible and far-off dream.
As you awaken or open to who and where you are now, there is a lot to take in. Wiggle your toes, stretch, breathe deeply, and give gratitude for another chance to fulfill your potential and experience Life. This month is so supported to assimilate all that you've learned & earned in the last 3-6-9-12 years. Release the non-essential and outdated. Look at EVERYTHING with open, innocent eyes seeing for the very first time, with wonder & awe! You've come a long way, changed form completely and been reborn in to a whole new realm of possibilities.
You can use the Gemini New Moon (5/28) to initiate new self-expression, ideas & thought patterns. You're working with new information about your Self, as well as your world. As you recognize that, the Sag Full Moon (6/13) illuminates your personal Truth in a way that releases the old Story of your life completely. You will know, on a deep Soul Level, that it is time to step fully in to your new Story and embody your Authentic Truth a little more than ever before.
Another concept that continues to be supported by a wide range of planetary alignments is that of the New Earth. Essentially, Earth just rebooted its own 26,000 year cycle in 2012, so we can take that literally or figuratively but either way, we have to adapt to the NEW ways of existing on a constantly evolving, living planet. Since Earth is our Home in the solar system, there is that large, collective perspective of Rebirth ('out with the old/in with the new') that we must consider. But then we must bring it down to human size, and individually, define *HOME* for ourselves.
  • How do you define Home? Family? Community?
  • What makes you feel well fed, protected, loved and supported?
  • How/When/Where do you retreat to replenish your resources?
This month is an *Exploratory Mission* of your Mind/Heart Connection. All this detached and objective Gemini processing is illuminating the ideas & concepts that your level of consciousness is ready to embody. Next month, Cancer and Summer Solstice will be the time to declare what will truly nourish & protect you going forward and use the energy to stabilize New Roots and New Home Base.
Like many of you, I am at a pivotal crossroads in my life and plan to anchor my *New Truth, Story & Definition of Home* this Summer Solstice in Mt. Shasta, at Shanta Gabriel's *Bridging Heaven & Earth Retreat*.

Scorpio Full Moon ~ Final Mission Before Re-Entry


Today's Buddha Moon (5/14) brings us to the final phase of our Spring Eclipse season. We have spent the last year or so moving through Taurus/Scorpio lessons, and now Aries/Libra lessons are being ushered in. Hopefully, we will begin to see/experience more of the collaborative spirit that Nature teaches, that all works together for good, and that dominance/oppression is destructive & unsustainable.
It has been my theory that, as we integrate new power, channel our resources in new ways and honor nature (Taurus/Scorpio) post-2012, we must learn to express ourselves (Aries) and relate in new, more effective ways with others (Libra). We had all (but one) New Moons with Taurus/Scorpio, indicating the new patterns & pathways being activated, while all 6 Aries/Libra Eclipses will be Full Moons, indicating patterns which are ready to be upgraded or released and pathways that have hit a dead-end of sorts.
If you are able to take the next 2-4 weeks to mine your Soul for your very own treasure, the following lunation in Gemini/Sag will give you time to process and assimilate what you discover and develop throughout this Underworld journey.
I am likening this Eclipse season to a trip in to Deep Space. It feels like we're navigating a completely different realm than ever before. This Scorpio Full Moon will reveal many things and connect you to your own Soul's desires, as well as fears, catalyzing the deepest of all surrenders. Some aspect of life has truly died, but only in the way that it creates space & nutrient for new life to take root. As Mars goes Direct (5/19) and Sun moves in to Gemini (5/20) a process begins that I liken to "re-entry in to Earth's atmosphere". It's tricky, dangerous but most of the time, ultimately, successful. My point is, there is a "process" to coming back down to Earth (after 'portals & choices & crossroads - oh my!), whereby you must release anything sticking to your suit (aura) or vehicle (body) and a certain decompression (so you can breathe again) must happen. Try to allow your Self some time for this process over the next 2-4 weeks.
Then, Cancer time (June/July) will usher in Jupiter's final blessings, rewarding you with the nourishment & protection of your NEW *Home*. Home that you find in your own Center (heart), as well as home on the New Earth which operates at a higher frequency than humans have ever lived for. It's important to take that time to put down some roots around whatever feeds & supports you best, stabilize your Self (home base) before jumping in to Leo playtime (with others).
But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, today's Scorpio Full Moon, though part of the larger story, is also an annual completion. It gives you a chance to release or compost whatever has outgrown its natural lifespan. Take some time to *cleanse & purify* your system of all that has been repressed, suppressed and pushed to the farthest and deepest realms of your life and consciousness. Use the energy to release waste, debris & the nonessential and the light of the Full Moon to bathe yourself with new life, vitality & power.
PS ~ I used the *Sandcastle* pic because it represents our return to a life made by hand! and it includes all the elements we need ~ Earth, Water, Air & Fire ~ to create beauty & structure that is a more authentic representation of our Truth. This one reminds me of Aladdin ~ Magic ~ Test of Values, Courage & Conscious Awareness ~ I could go on but you get the gist ; -)

*TAURUS* 2014 Solar/Lunar Guidance

MONTHLY *SOLAR* GUIDANCE: As the Sun moves in to Taurus, it is time to see what new forms are worth strengthening & cultivating for the year. When you plant seeds, you never know which will take root, but now you should see some promise around some of the intentions you set for 2014. Our ongoing mantra these days is: Is it worth it? The general energies are intense and transformative and this month, things may get literal. Taurus gets us present to our creature comforts and basic security needs like food, sex & money.  This is an *Annual* Activation for everyone, but for the *Fixed* Family, it can be a little more intense & personal ... Taurus *Initiation* ~ Scorpio *Integration* ~ Leo/Aquarius *Test/Growth*    

Taurus also represents the Gate of Power, the Mid-Point between Spring & Summer. This is a Infinitely potent time ~ "in between" ~ a place, also referred to as the "Sweet Spot" - that very thin membrane between *SEED* and *NEW* Life ... between *Spring* Equinox (seed) and *Summer* Solstice (new life). It reminds us of the beauty and sustenance Mother Earth has always provided, not just for humans, but for all life on this planet.
It is time to tune in, harmonize and synchronize your rhythm with Nature's rhythm. Just like we invite the Invisible Assistance & Ancestors during the November Scorpio Gate of Power which honors Death (in the Life/Death/Life Cycle), we now honor renewed Life, and can now invite the Elementals, Nature Spirits, Devas and the Plant Kingdom in to conscious collaboration, honoring their teachings and sacrifices made to assist, feed and support life on this Planet in ways humans may not always be aware or capable of.
This is a time to celebrate fertility, abundance and our relationship to Mother. It is a time to celebrate all that you have created and contributed to, while mindfully preserving *Life* along the way. Ritual, dance, drumming, toning and/or chanting are always used in celebrations of Earth and her bounty, as is wearing or surrounding your Self with *Green* ~ the color of Life/Love ~ and the Heart Chakra.
Finally, lending weight to the energies this go-round is Juno in Taurus. Juno takes about 4-years to move through the zodiac, so the last time it was in Taurus was March/April 2010. Again, my Fixed Babies may feel this one a little more strongly than most, but certainly we can all take advantage of her added energy. As we cultivate the Garden, Juno reminds us that we are IN PARTNERSHIP with Mother Earth, and this is a reminder to deepen our dedication to living in more balanced, natural ways. As we finish up the Taurus/Scorpio Eclipses, we have this additional support to commit to LIFE. Patriarchal dominance is a death-oriented system that is unsustainable. Life is created by both the Sacred Masculine & the Sacred Feminine, one or the other cannot create alone, and neither can we.
It is time to be grateful for the advances of technology, while still honoring that Nature takes time to cultivate and fully develop Life before it is ripe for the sharing. We must slow down and allow natural processes their time to fully develop otherwise, we miss the sweetness & nutrient. There is much energy for change, which can be chaotic and unsettling, however, you should already be aware of the core issues for you/yours so use this month's energy tune in to any internal 'famine' and know that all you need, desire & deserve is already here. All you need to do is align with it and create space for it in your life. Miracles abound!
Even the Divinations guide us toward an understanding of 'As above, so below' ~ that we ARE the bridge between Heaven & Earth; that we are Spirits having a Human experience and we spend most of our lives just coming to terms with the limitations of our earthly bodies ; -) and Taurus time invites us to experience the pleasure & sustenance Mother provides and give deep gratitude for such bounty! The body, like fruit & flowers, has a natural lifespan that is not long by any measure so enjoy the time you have, bask in the present moment, for it truly is a gift.
MONTHLY *LUNAR* GUIDANCE: If you missed last month's Lunar/Solar Guidance, I recommend it as these two lunations are related and rolling one in to the other and that missive "set up" this week's continued focus. This week is even more potent and telling! I've mentioned that we have a 'double dose of Sacred Feminine energy to a single dose of Sacred Masculine' and for the guidance this month, I pulled all four Sisters + one Brother! More importantly, Earth Brother & Earth Sister are the only two "mortals" in this version of the tarot, which too, is speaking directly to each of us and our humanity. It is time to fulfill our potential and rise to the next level in every way. That said, we are still talking 'fundamentals' and the basics of life and living on this planet. So don't be overwhelmed, instead, SIMPLIFY, PRIORITIZE & RE-DISTRIBUTE YOUR ENERGY & RESOURCES. Also, I decided to give the guidance 'weekly' below because the guidance was so compelling and supportive of what the planets are doing. Read on for MORE!
The Aquarius Last Qtr Moon (4/22) may be challenging you to own your Truth in a completely new way because the old Truth no longer applies. You may have grown accustomed to certain habits, where your food, sex & money are concerned, that will no longer work or support you. This tests you to release the old way and be radically different. The catch is to stay centered in your *HEART* (Leo) as you commit to change and let go of an old way of living your life. What's Truth for you NOW?
This leads to the Taurus New Moon/Solar Eclipse (4/29) which is a very powerful Eclipse for all! It is time to set your intentions for the most beautiful, abundant *Garden* your imagination can dream up ~ Right Now! It's time to set your intentions for how you want to live - physically - literally - in your body. How is your physical reality? How equally do you distribute your resources of time, energy & money? Do you find yourself at "zero" on one or all of these (time, energy, money)? How often do you live at "zero"? How often do you experience "full" (plenty-full-satisfied)? When do you experience balance in your physical life, when you get enough rest, play, work & silence?
Taurus is always about enjoying the natural, physical life of living on Earth ~ all senses are engaged and deeply valued for each gift they bring to your individual experience. Your senses, like your heart, communicates directly 'from you - to you' and no translator is necessary. A lot of our world forces us to dull our senses because the way we're living is so unnatural that our bodies literally rebel. The last year and a half has been a "rewiring" process of revealing the decay and what is no longer sustainable, and now, with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus, we can initiate completely NEW ways of living physical life. More focus on the abundance and sustainability ~ more integration and practice of true balance, within and without - more conscious awareness of 'price vs. cost' to our Souls as well as to the environment - more gratitude - more beauty - more lifeforms living in true harmony.
This Taurus/Scorpio eclipse series is almost over, this is the final Taurus New Moon and we have the final Scorpio New Moon in October when we will also realign our true power & a renewed discipline that deeply respects and reveres Nature herself as the Source of our supply. For over a year now, how we physically live on Earth and how we utilize Mother's many natural resources has completed a 20-yr cycle, which is naturally part of a couple of much larger cycles. There has been a bit of the 'gorge theory of pleasure' but that is unsustainable. The current rewiring, post-2012, is bringing the Sacred Feminine back in to conscious equal partnership with the Sacred Masculine, which promotes & sustains LIFE! One without the other does not work, for us or the planet. As we practice individual balance and internal harmony, we will start to see that Mother's abundance & security surrounds us, now & always. What physical reality would bring you the most physical pleasure & personal security? What is NATURAL for you personally? What are you ready to invest in?
The Leo First Qtr Moon (5/6) actually falls on the Taurus Gate of Power, so this is a potent day and week for initiating new Heart-Centered ways of living your physical, daily life. Where is the Heart in your life, that undeniable passion that sparks you from within? Where is the love in your life? How often do you laugh and play and just relax with friends? All this needs to be integrated in to your life on a regular basis, you may have been in a famine for way too long (many have). Use this Sacred week to connect to your own wealth, count your blessings and look for solid ways to expand that wealth in some kind of way. Check in with your magnetics, what are you attracting? what are you repelling?
This is the Mid-Point between Spring & Summer and it is a prime opportunity to access balance and equilibrium prior to the extremes associated with the coming season. You have 6-wks to rectify accounts and clear space for the bounty coming your way. You have done a LOT of literal and spiritual work over the last 2-5 years and this is a growth & development kind of time. Even if you are overwhelmed, you have to have some idea of how you'd like to live differently. Say a prayer inviting your Higher Self and your personal Guides (of which you have many assigned to you from birth) to clear the path for you so you can make the best choices for YOU! Ask them to align you with the energy and the resources to stabilize your life. You are deeply supported to do all this in a NEW way.
The Scorpio Full Moon (5/14) is powerful release time! We are literally coming to the end of a 2-month eclipse *Portal* and life will never be the same again. This is the week we completely release the past and compost all the death & negativity we've witnessed or experienced in the last several years. We have learned and lived SO much in the last 2-5 years, as well as the last 10 & 20 years, as we crossed over 2012. We are in such new territory that the only things you can take with you now are internal, on a Soul level - that's your power and your wealth now. It's time to conceive the new, then the Gemini lunation will explore the possibilities, while the Cancer lunation will figure out what truly feeds, sustains & protects you, and then the Leo lunation will test you further on the very things coming up for you NOW.
If you haven't conversed with your Soul in a while, now is the time to get reconnected. That connection is NEVER lost, but only needs regular fortification to serve you well. The guidance further supports this notion of the inner connection that creates the outer reality: "The Water Sister represents the power of the emotions and the unconscious/subconscious to give sustenance to idea. Since she is born from the unification of her father and mother, Fire and Water (the superconscious and the subconscious), she symbolizes the process of creation; the beginning of imagination on the physical plane."

Venus Retrograde in Capricorn

Venus in Capricorn:
Love, Money & Your Magnetics
~ Making It Real ~

Nov 5, 2013 -thru- March 5, 2014
~ Venus Retrograde ~
Dec 21, 2013 - Jan 31, 2014
Review, Reflect & Set Conscious Intentions
for Release & Reclamation
Venus Rules ...
~ LOVE ~
unifying energetic force that exists in/through all life
the invisible essence which links all life
and transcends language or species
what humanity contributes thru thoughts,
feelings, words & deeds creates a culture
what you spend your resources on reveals
what you value and what your priorities are
Venus & Your Magnetics ~ Venus rules everything we truly care about and how we go about creating or acquiring it. Among other things, it rules love, art and beauty, all things that can be physical but the feeling they give us when we experience them is subtle, magnetic energy that draws us in and speaks directly to the heart. The heart is the only electro-magnetic organ in our bodies and directly links us to both the inner core as well as and the outer field which surrounds & protects Earth. When Earth or its atmosphere are zapped with intense energy, we definitely feel it too because we are eternally connected. The communication of the heart is feeling and we are getting a crash course in how to *feel* with all the Water energy swirling at this time. Venus can help you, on a personal level, understand magnetics in a whole new way which will ultimately support you in co-creating a life based on what is most vital to your life and true to your heart. We are not creating the old way we used to, now it is much more about creating an inviting space and magnetizing IN the heart's desire.
Venus & Its Dual Nature ~ It rules both earthy Taurus and breezy Libra. Taurus asks, "what is it worth?" and Libra asks, "where is the balance & harmony for all involved?" You can see how we swing from literal, material value to perceived value according to an individual's preferences and priorities. When Venus is expressing Taurus values, it is all about the physical experience of beauty, while with Libra it is all about the essence. Either way, in your chart, Venus rules what you are magnetized to and what you are repelled by.
Venus Cycles - Past/Future ~ If we track the last few Venus cycles, one way to look at it is that we got a completely new identity activated when Venus Retrograded through *ARIES* (2009-2010) which was followed by cultivating new values & priorities, based on this "new identity" which opened up access to our innate power to co-create our lives. As Venus Retrograded through *SCORPIO* (2010-2011), we got to cleanse & clear any deeply buried karmic debris blocking full expression of clean, authentic power and true self-worth. As Venus Retrograded through *GEMINI* (2012), we got to explore the infinite ways we can express ourselves at this new level of consciousness and release out-dated thinking and obsolete processes. Now, theoretically, we can put a brand new structure in place with the current Retro through *CAPRICORN* (2013-2014). The focus will shift to actually making decisions and creating fundamental stability, as well as personal security, based on the new values & priorities. Venus Retrogrades every 18-months or so, which means that our *Values & Priorities* shift on a fairly regular basis. Getting a rhythm to this, internally, will help you flow with your own personal evolution with far less fear or anxiety and much more trust in the natural order of things, which includes these natural changes. If we anchor the fundamentals in a secure way, then the next Venus Cycle thru *LEO* (2015) will be our final exam on working with magnetics for sure, with both rewards and revelations!
Venus in Capricorn ~ Consider this 4 month period (Nov 2013 - March 2014) a literal and figurative UPGRADE to the structure or foundation of your life. You are responsible for creating, maintaining and sustaining your own life. Essentially, it is time to own your Inner Authority and innate ability to run your own life (Capricorn), and Venus Retro brings the necessary review of values & priorities (Venus) where your personal emotional & physical safety & security are all concerned. What is most important to you around these fundamentals, here & now today? How you make decisions and define security has likely shifted dramatically since 2005-2006, and will shift again by 2021-22 (next Venus Retro in Capricorn). The Retrograde period should afford you time for the *Review*. Review your rules & responsibilities, do some clearing & releasing and prepare the way for new rules, new responsibilities and new projects to have a place to exist and evolve. Retrogrades are always good for research, revisions & resolutions. Does what you have been dedicated to, building and maintaining, actually reflect your deepest, core values? Do you spend your resources of time, energy & money on memories or materials? Education or elitism? Progress or postponement?
This Venus work is going to be very personal for those with Capricorn/Cancer and Aries/Libra activated in their charts. Things that were important to you 8-years ago are probably not so vital now, and things that were not even on your list of priorities may have moved to the top. In this case, Capricorn means the structure of your life and the reality you're currently living has evolved over the last 8-years and adjustments to your responsibilities, commitments and decision-making skills should reflect the *upgrade*. Taking a time-out to review your own reality, how it works, what it grounds or anchors in physical form and how it serves you (or not) ~ that is what this Retrograde will likely bring to the foreground. Capricorn energy always reveals where you are rigid, dry & unstable. It's about carrying your own weight, not the weight of the world and Capricorn is very present to the here & now fundamentals (home, work, food, shelter). It's time to dedicate your efforts toward productive ends that both support you and serve others.
Capricorn energy is all about how you make decisions and structure the foundation of your life, what holds it all together and it is the individual 'container' for your personal life. It's about being responsible for your thoughts, feelings, words & deeds and understanding how they are all connected to the physical reality of your life. Your outer reality reflects your inner reality. It's about building inner strength & fortitude that automatically creates outer order & stability. Capricorn is Ruled by Saturn, which is the last visible planet and speaks to our definition of reality, as well as our physical limits. Saturn is about dedication to the step-by-step process that accomplishes the long term/big goal that will ultimately support more than just you and yours. If you are consciously participating in life, then this is a potent time for you. However, if you are overwhelmed by decisions you've already postponed overlong or the instability of fundamental aspects of your life (home, work, food, shelter), then it's time to meet your Inner Architect who can help you survey, clear, dedicate, design and ultimately, build the NEW clean foundation to support yourself.

Venus is now covering the ground which will be reviewed between Dec 21st (retro) and Jan 31st (direct) and anchored during Feb 2014. The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, in Venus' case, values, priorities & resources. It brings these issues to the surface, essentially getting your attention in a way that (hopefully) will prompt you to want to explore more deeply (retrograde) before charting the course of future forward movement (direct/out of shadow) when you will have acquired more clarity and sure-footedness. Venus has an 8-year Cycle, and last did this (Retrograde in Capricorn) in 2005-06, so how have your values evolved over the last 8-years where your fundamental choices & responsibilities are concerned? How would you like to evolve over the next 8-years? Venus energy focuses your attention on what you deeply value or what you give your resources to, which tells the Universe what you truly value. How did you spend your time, energy and money over the last cycle? How will/must that change going forward?
This Venus *Retrograde* Cycle is Time to ...
Reconnect with all *6* of your senses
Assess your values & priorities on all levels
Renew your self-value / self-worth / self-esteem
Balance & Integrate your Divine Feminine nature
Renew your Spirit, your Faith, and your Commitment
Assess your relationships, partnerships and collaborations
Recreate your way of living - and - of living on Earth with others
Assess how you relate to your environment, people, circumstances
Review anything buried, suppressed or neglected over last 8-years
Use your resources more consciously so you are more effective
Try to connect with your own internal rhythm of shifting values & priorities and definitions of love, wealth and beauty, which evolve every 18-months on smaller scales, and every 8-years on larger scales. Things, people, circumstances ALL come and go and come back again; what/who is important yesterday may not be today or tomorrow. Once you establish the connection to your own internal rhythm, then try to get that in sync with the larger social/collective rhythms. That's when co-creating gets really *juicy* and you get more effective, feel more beautiful and life's more abundant all around!
