8/11 ~ Uranus Rx 6* TAURUS (until 1.10.2020):
This is the first full retro in Taurus for Uranus so we should settle into an annual rhythm for the next 6-7 years. The personal planets will interact with Uranus in Taurus in a similar way every year that we can conscious co-create with and every year’s annual retrograde is a special time to assimilate the changes you’ve been going through. Uranus is a collective planet and so affects many people and takes 7-years to accomplish its mission in each sign. It will awaken the Taurus department of life (House) and stimulate any of your planets in Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius (by default). Also, I’d say here & now is a good time to reflect on the ‘liberating ordeal’ you just went through over the last 7-years as it stimulated & awakened your Aries department. Now that it is truly into Taurus, you can start to reap the benefits and integrate the recent, radical shifts that you’re Identity & Purpose (Aries) have been through and the focus, and thus the lessons & blessings, will now shift to the values & priorities (Taurus) that support that newly awakened Emergent Self and how that works on the ground, in your body, on the Earth, in real time.

Read on for a little more about the Venus Cycle …
Change Is Imminent
Next week, I am hosting a Venus Circle OPEN House, something I always do at the beginning and the MidPoint in her Cycle. Whether you are “into astrology” or not, this is an energetic cycle that we are all navigating. Scorpio’s depths are not always easy to navigate alone, although that is the way it usually is when we’re doing Soul work. Like education & exercise, Soul work is something no one else can do for you. You must do it for your Self, your SoulSelf, who is wanting to lead a little more often going forward. And in order to do that, you’re being prompted from within, to make changes over the course of her cycle.
Rhythm & Repetitive Themes
This is a regular re-evaluation of values & priorities that happens in the Scorpio depths every 8-years and over time, you can start to figure out any repetitive themes in your own life. Last time she did this was in 2010, so that is your frame of reference for now. If that is too big, stick to the last 18-months of evolution and just review that to see where your relationships and/or your finances are in need of some more intense attention or concentrated energy in order to: purify, heal, restore & protect!
Life, Death & Resurrection
Do you feel like your values & priorities have shifted in the last year or two? Do you feel like a ‘new person’ or that you have a new identity, purpose or direction in life that you just became aware of or just gained access to? The last cycle was the upgrade to who you are and what you want on fundamentally basic levels. Because of that *rebirth*, you now have access to new power that must be directed consciously to be useful & effective.
Imbalanced Distribution of Power
In order to maintain a clean connection to your own power you have to do a periodic clearing. What have you postponed the longest? Some people have been focused on relationships, to the neglect of money and others have focused on money to the neglect of relationships. Do you see how hard it is to balance worldly ambition with family & intimate relationships? Things can, and often do, get really out of balance if we don’t check-in on a regular basis.
Here again, is the link to my Venus Article HERE (9-pg/pdf) and if you don’t have time to read all the details, then I suggest you review the bullets on page #3 (About Retro) and page#7 (Scorpio Light/Shadow) and page #8 (Libra Light/Shadow). They will give you the gist in list form.
Once you’ve reviewed the details of what the Venus Retrograde is awakening for one and all, I am hoping you will want to go deeper – with and for yourSelf (with the Reading or Custom Guide or Personal Activations). I also want to encourage you to be part of my ever-expanding Venus Monthly Circle of ongoing, group support ~ as we navigate the same terrain individually, but never alone.
Various Support Tools
All that said, it’s really good to know what Areas of Life (Libra/Scorpio Houses) she lingered in, in your own world, so that you can co-create with her consciously. I also want to mention here that you do not have to join the Venus Circle ($25/mo – Includes Monthly Activations), or get the Custom Guide ($150 – Includes Reading + 18-mo of Personal Activations), or Subscribe to your Monthly Activations ($10/mo) to benefit from the Venus Reading ($150 – Custom Guide is Optional).
Value of the Venus Reading
As a stand-alone reading, you can check-in to see what is being upgraded for you personally and together, we can map out a strategy for navigating the rest of the cycle. Whether you play with us in the Circle or not, the cycle is a natural (and ongoing) rhythm of releasing that which no longer serves (for 9-months) and then consciously claiming a higher level of expression going forward (for 9-months). As you tap into this rhythm, your relationships & finances naturally improve because you are more conscious of your own magnetics, true personal worth and individual values & priorities in the moment.
No One Is Exempt
I hope you’ll consider getting a reading or sharing this invitation with others you think would resonate. Anyone with Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius will be most directly affected as she will linger on your planets and create opportunities with every contact. The rest of us will benefit in those Areas of Life ruled by those Signs and so it is still good to check-in, either way. It’s an excellent reading for anyone dealing with serious decisions to make in the relationship or finance departments. Many of us are at a crossroads in these very departments, it’s good to know that there is energy, resources & support for us! Reach out if you need to!

8/14 ~ Venus (beauty & creativity) ~conjunct~ Sun (individuality & Light):
This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to express or bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, the individual, however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it is all about your creations! Use this Solar infusion to brighten and illuminate your self, your surroundings and/or your creative projects. This expands & brightens your magnetic field and opportunities that are just right for you are usually the result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it’s based on your new values & priorities. It is also the beginning of a new creative cycle. Remember that love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others. This is a potent seed time and good to allow support & guidance from men and/or the Sacred Masculine within and around you.
8/15 ~ AQUARIUS Full Moon: One reason I wanted to be sure to discuss is because we are on the other side of recent Leo/Aquarius Eclipses and often, once they’ve passed and the dust settles, you start to really see what has changed and/or permanently ended. It’s good to know the Houses in your chart being affected as those will represent the Areas of Life being affected (reach out if you need help figuring out what that is for you). So this Full Moon asks: What have you become “too” attached to? And/or what have you become “too” detached from (and need to reconnect)? We have spent recent months navigating the Mutable energy of thought & ideas (Gemini), along with the Cardinal energy of action & choices (Cancer), whose theme continues but now the energy has become decidedly Fixed and it is time to anchor something … in your Heart (Leo). What ideas have you gotten going that need some tending to make stronger & more viable?
This lunation may illuminate or activate revelations of when, where and with whom (mostly Self) you have not been completely (if at all) authentic. Start with the *motivations* ~ if/when they are pure, clean & neutral, then being authentic becomes less challenging. But when you are not authentic, things become more challenging. Now more than ever, we must be congruent with our Inner & Outer Natures in order to thrive, prosper & 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 (then 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? Use this Full Moon to release any inauthenticity or rigid attachment of any kind. It’s also good to tap into your body’s wisdom when things are decidedly “mental” around you. This is the lunation to align your Head & Heart with how it “feels” as what’s really important.
8/16 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening):
This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical new ideas, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things ‘going as planned’, then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It’s good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into, may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You’re just cracking the surface, this is all about the revelation or awakening, you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form.
