The Value of Venus Retrograde:
The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, and in Venus’ case, the primary issues are: values, priorities, beauty, love, relationships and resources. It brings these aspects of life up to the surface for everyone. Essentially, this is getting your attention in a way that prompts you to want to explore more deeply and look at things from a variety of other or new perspectives. Before charting the course of future choices & forward movement, there is a personal review & an individual clearing that must happen for you to acquire more clarity & sure-footedness.

Note from Kelly:
I am so excited to tell you that this Weekly Forecast is now listed as a podcast in iTunes, Spotify, Google etc. It will be listed in many more as I get approved and I have created a Podcasts page on my website so you can find all the necessary links there. This way, you can listen on any of your preferred platforms. This is a good time to remind you that every article & blog post that I do has an audio link for those times when reading is difficult or impossible. It’s a great feature for those with any eyesight issues. Even my email ~ you don’t even have to read my emails anymore because you can click a link and I will read it to you. I am delighted to be exploring what other podcasts I may want to host or guest on, so please send me suggestions if podcasts are your thing. Also, hopefully by the time you receive this, I will have the new Venus Article posted, meantime, I hope you also enjoy the Aries Energy of the Month Article ~ Blog Post HERE -and- 7-min Audio HERE.
As the Sun enters Aries ~ Spring Equinox Initiates a new Solar/astrological year. This is a *Universal* RE-Set Button. Clean Slate. New Beginning. This is an Annual Activation for everyone, but for the Cardinal Family, it can be a little more intense & personal … Aries Initiation ~ Libra Integration ~ Cancer/Capricorn Test/Growth. Everyone has Aries ruling some area of life and this is the area of life that gets activated at this time every year.
3/31 ~ Mars (energy, desire & action) ~conjunct~ Saturn (structure, responsibility & timing):
Any conjunction is an initiation and Mars rules ‘who you are’ and ‘what you want’, while Saturn rules your definition of reality and your physical limits. If you are feeling frustrated, you may need to clarify your desires more, then take tangible, practical steps toward them. Anytime Saturn is involved, it will depend on your personal nature, as some thrive on structure & good boundaries, while others buck the system and want to do it their own way (which causes its own types of conflicts in the world).
Note + Special Offer from Kelly:
I am over-the-moon excited to share something really special with you and I encourage you to share it with others. This is my SouLodge Sistas on steroids! This is what we do, y’all 😉 Many of us became Earth Medicine Practitioners together in 2017-18 and this is the first big collaboration that we’ve done together – and it’s called Wise Woman Alchemy. What I find fascinating is the timing of this offering because, thanks to Heather Dakota – Book Witch & Business Alchemist, we were putting this together for months before this worldly chaos broke out and now, it is ready for you right ON TIME!
15 Women coming together. 15 Offerings to provide support for an over-stressed and overwhelmed world. We each bring our own brand of magick to help you tap into your intuition, reclaim your joy & sovereignty, and nurture your body & soul. The vision we hold as the Wise Woman Collective is that each woman shares her knowledge, which creates a powerful place for all of us. more…
I have 3-events to share before I launch into our rich & fertile forecast, which only consists of two official activations but boy do they *matter* at this juncture in life but they also come later in the week. Sunday, I am live in Chicago, Monday is when Shanta’s Spring Anustan begins, Tuesday is my IGLive day ~ plus Shanta & I are doing our Annual Equinox gathering Thursday.
Note from Kelly:
Before I forget, I want to reach out to you or anyone you know in Phoenix, Chicago, Atlanta & New Orleans. I am traveling to these cities in March & April and would love to connect with you in-person! We can do a one-on-one session or if you have a Circle of your own, I can drop-in and share some goodies with your people. eMail me directly for dates & details.
Note from Kelly:
What a week, last week, so how are you doing this week? If you missed the forecast, it’s not a bad idea to review it because there are still reverberations energetically, this week. It’s all very personal, Mercury Retro and Venus speeding toward hers, so we are responding to the reorganization of our cells. Something is or has changed and how you express yourself has evolved, don’t fall into old habits of self-expression. Take this retrograde opportunity to conjure a new vision for yourself and don’t look back! Your values & priorities are being rearranged too, so pay attention to reverting to negative habits, under pressure, where food, sex or money are concerned. It can be challenging to give up an old vision that never really materialized but if you don’t, the new one cannot come in on time.
As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up all kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water. It is likely the same sensation as when you were in the womb of your mother’s belly. You actually “feel” the sounds more than you “hear” them, you “sense” all the activity around you. That is the essence of NOW.
2/23 ~ PISCES New Moon:
This is an annual crossroads we come to every year around this time. It is the completion of 12-new moons since the last Pisces New Moon (3.6.2019). How’s it going a year later? No one is exempt. We all have a House in our charts ruled by Pisces. It is here that you should seed your intentions and precious vision for the next year (minimum), with consideration of where you’d like to be at the 6-month MidPoint, the Pisces Full Moon 9.2.2020, when these very seeds will show their true promise. Consider that this crossroads is simultaneously an ending and the womb holding what will be birthed next.
