Jupiter.

Jupiter says “I expand.”

 

Preface: Many people are of the mindset that Jupiter is always benevolent. And, it may be. However, I am of the mindset that words like “always” and “never” are generally too black-and-white in their simplicity. Jupiter in any sign is generally benevolent in my interpretation; however, the optimism and expansion associated with Jupiter energy can go to an extreme that leaves the native out of balance…in a type of euphoric state of supposed everlasting “utopia.” And, “utopia” may be a highly individualized idea. Also, the painting above was created by yours truly. Matte framed prints available soon…

jupiter IN ARIES

Jupiter in Aries tends to be about expansion in the realm of assertion! That said, Jupiter in Aries may fall into any part of a spectrum that can be considered an enlargement of the asserted Will: healthy assertion or natural benevolence each time assertion is demonstrated; taking more action in the areas of travel, spirituality + philosophy; and/or expansion in aggressiveness or war, with the fueled mindset that extremism or evangelical authoritarianism will bring benevolence. These are examples to various parts of a spectrum that may have a hand in the Jupiter in Aries native. It all depends on the overall natal chart. Get your reading for more detailed information!

jupiter IN TAURUS

Jupiter in Taurus, in my experience, can show up on the spectrum of supposed “jovial expansion.” Some may experience Jupiter in Taurus as an expansion into the realm of materialism, consumerism, sensuality, and overall rootedness in one’s “home” (whether country/political, literally built shelter/home, and/or otherwise rooted somehow – in belief or “reality” of belief). This tendency can also lean towards hedonism – a personal attachment to that which is, ultimately, a transpersonal energy. Since Jupiter acts as the beginning to a bridge toward the transpersonal planets, this particular planet and its placement in the natal chart becomes more detailed in a way. Regardless, Jupiter in Taurus may be just what the individual needs and/or what the collective needs on some level. The house placement + motion of Jupiter overall will offer further insight…

jupiter IN GEMINI

Jupiter in Gemini is an interesting energy! Jupiter rules the opposite sign, Sagittarius; so, when Jupiter appears in Gemini the energy tends to focus on the changeable energy within the mind itself. From my experience, this type of dynamic tends to play out over a lifetime so that living beyond roughly 30 years of age, things become clearer. Yes, as with many things, this specific energy is linked with Saturn returns! It sort of builds as a check-out-everything energy first – “fact” and “illusion” and inner and/or outer “truth” is constantly questioned and modified over time. I cannot say this energy is every truly “clear” for any native; however, it seems to solidify into something (even if that something is stubbornly fluid) later in life. At a very base level, the energetics of Jupiter in Gemini finds settlement in amplifying communication on all levels – whether it be through magnifying random rumors through various social media or community-oriented outlets; magnifying messages through various spiritual or religious avenues; and/or magnifying a musician’s prominence in one’s life. Overall, this energy can be like making-a-mountain-out-of-a-molehill on a mind level. This tendency is not necessarily “bad” nor “good” – it is what it is. Get your own natal chart reading for further detail!

jupiter IN CANCER

Jupiter in Cancer is highly feeling-oriented. It can be like a tsunami, a perfect surfing session, or a gentle current of water…but because we’re dealing with Jupiter in Cancer, the plentiful ocean is a wonderful image to begin with. Cancer is connected with the Moon, which both dictates and is dependent on the tides. It’s a case of the egg and the chicken…which came first? In this case, it doesn’t matter. They are dependent on one another in some form or another, and with Jupiter acting as the orchestrator of the energy flow…well, we’re talking “big” or “expansive” exploration! This energy is like any classical masterpiece that plays on the emotional tides in a big way (think: Mozart). So, a tsunami, the perfect surfing conditions, and a gentle current of water all depict part of what Jupiter holds: it’s “big” and “moving” and “jovial,” depending on what each individual finds resonance with. Since we’re dealing with two energies that can be rather unpredictable in a way, their combination in one’s natal chart can bring on all sort of possibilities – what one might find joyful and emotionally comforting may be an Other’s worst nightmare! The natal chart reading tends to be my recommendation for more beyond these insights; that type of reading is far more uniquely tuned in with YOU!

jupiter IN LEO

Jupiter in Leo is the performer of all performers! That’s not totally true. Most major performers probably do not have this precise placement of energy; still, many famous performers actually do. The point is that the Jupiter in Leo native tends to have a high potential for things like the performance arts, politics or law, and creative + artistic sectors on some level. As with any other Jupiter placement, there is capacity to “hold more” – whether that be ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ or somewhere in between is up to the individual Will and its underlying motives and intentions. Some Jupiter in Leo natives may be overtly narcissistic; others may somehow shine brighter than others without the overt “me-only” attitude. Still others may be natural philanthropists with the strong desire to bring communities together. Regardless, their found luck tends to be in the spotlight! Leo’s opposite sign is Aquarius, and these two (like all other opposite signs) have a connection: their opposition is intrinsically part of how the Jupiter in Leo native may choose to expand themselves. This energy is like the Sun…on fire! Yes, the Sun is already understood to be “on fire”…but imagine the Sun as twice its own size. That’s Jupiter in Leo. For further insight + information, feel free to reach out for a natal chart reading.

jupiter IN VIRGO

Jupiter in Virgo will be sure to expand the mind’s details! Jupiter in Virgo is a dynamic energy all on its own (Jupiter rules Sagittarius, which is square – dynamic energy – to both Gemini and Virgo). Depending on the house placement and the overall energy in a natal chart, Jupiter in Virgo will tend to enlarge what seems rather small. Scientists, biochemists, biologists, mathematicians, physicists, technical editors, monks, gurus, and the like – these are types that may have some form of Jupiter in Virgo in their life-playing-cards. Jupiter in Virgo energy is balanced in both logic and intuition; the house placement may shed light on where that balance may be enacted. Still, it is up to the Jupiter in Virgo native to actually balance that ever-expanding energy that Jupiter proffers. In short, Jupiter in Virgo is like the Buddhist who follows the Zen-like-path to some kind of perfection. It can be highly in tune with spirituality, religion, or belief structure in general – and whatever feels “healthy” is what’s sought ofter. Of course, if this same person has Jupiter in Virgo in the 6th, they may have digestive issues based on what lies beneath their attachment to belief structure! Again, Jupiter is expansive…but there is a balance to be found…

jupiter IN Libra

The Jupiter in Libra individual is on top of diplomacy skills. These are the transpersonal compromisers! The energetic expansion + skill in diplomacy can have various gateways. Depending on the “where” (the house position) + the overall natal chart amalgamation, the Jupiter in Libra native may be self-oriented, other-oriented, or somewhere in-between with this vibration. Donald Trump has this placement. It falls in his 2nd House… which is about money, worth, self-worth, stability, security, etc. His luck with monetary pursuits + skills in the appearance of diplomacy = something interesting based on his overall story. I won’t go into it too much, but I will reiterate that skills of “compromise” can be founded upon the needs of Self, of Other, of Community, etc. This transpersonal vibrational imprint is felt differently by different filters (aka, you, me, etc.). Anyhow, Jupiter in Libra is a very, very charming energy. Overall, Jupiter in Libra is like the teacher on “both sides” of anything since it expands itself into both realms extensively. Get your own natal chart reading for more…

jupiter IN SCORPIO

The Jupiter in Scorpio native is working with Pluto energy + expansion. What does that mean? Many, many potentials. Jupiter is actually currently in Scorpio at the time of this post. What’s going on for the collective? Do you see the power struggles? The greed? The exposures on sexual assault? These can be examples of the energy in action, for sure. Being born with Jupiter in Scorpio does NOT mean that these are the themes, however (get your natal chart reading for your overall energy). The themes involved with this energy do tend to center around expansion of Plutonian energy, though. Empowerment. Sexual freedom and/or powerful beliefs around what “freedom” means on the emotional + sexual front. Passions to the extreme. Powerful healing in confronting and working with the depths. Overall, this energy can be like the psychic helping the investigator in solving a case. Power + freedom with a touch of justice are involved. The energy calls for adventure into the depths, possible mass destruction, and yet an abundance of healing at the same time…

jupiter IN SAGITTARIUS

Jupiter in Sagittarius is at home! Since Jupiter rules Sagittarius (and in some mindsets, Pisces as well), Jupiter can expand your mind in its most benevolent form. Of course, Jupiter can be quite benevolent in any sign or house placement; still, its home territory has a certain flavor + focus. The Jupiter in Sagittarius lightbody may be quite philosophical, travel-oriented, seeker-oriented, or otherwise oriented to expand a worldview or two…or three or four…so on. The energy is not generally seen as fundamentalist or extreme unless in contact with other indicators that seem to force it to behave as such. Get your natal chart reading for further insight into your individual makeup, if you wish! We will experience this transpersonal planet’s energy on the collective level beginning in November of 2018. Keep in mind what’s going on now to gain a glimpse into what might be next…

jupiter IN CAPRICORN

Jupiter in Capricorn is like taking all the cognition from Jupiter in Sagittarius and moving it into recognition (re-cognition). What does that mean? Well, in short, it is kind of like having a ton of thought matter flow around for a year – and then the manifesting from that material begins. Some people become highly recognized in life when they have this energy in their natal charting. Famous and/or infamous, to be sure. I immediately thought of Bill Cosby, for some reason while typing that. I just looked up his chart – lo and behold, he was born with Jupiter in Capricorn. I won’t speak to his overall energy, but, to say the least, he has taken on the role of being both famous + infamous in his life so far. When the expansive and freedom-loving planet Jupiter gets “boxed in” with the highly-boundary-oriented energy that is Capricorn, there can be a mixing pot of repressed energy seeking release. There can also be a noticeable thriving through whatever public position the individual takes on. The “how” and the “where” this energy shows up is one part free will + one part blueprinting in this astrologer’s view. Get your natal chart reading if you’re seeking more insight! With this energy, it is wise to keep in mind that we may design our lives one way, and they show up another way… it all depends on our individual vibrations as we move through this thing we call life.  

jupiter IN AQUARIUS

Jupiter in Aquarius is like the higher mind on overdrive! With full disclosure, I was born with this placement in my 1st House. I both do and do not resonate with my own forthcoming description here…because as I write, I draw from a certain place that is not extremely personal. That said, the Jupiter in Aquarius native may have a “strange” influence on the collective. The energy is essentially dealing with abundance + higher mind + individualism. That combination can show up in oh, so many ways. Part of its expression is tapped into through the natal chart, as the individual house placement dictates “where” the energy shows up. Still, and to name a few strings playing from one instrument, Jupiter in Aquarius can offer high levels of eccentricity, high levels of individualism, high levels of 6th, 7th, 8th…senses, and more. These are the innovators, the entrepreneurs, the extremely progressive minds, and the random people on the street that offer you some synchronicity in your life. Communicate with your higher mind much? Here it one type of energy for you to acquaint yourself with, well, YOU!

jupiter IN PISCES

Jupiter in Pisces is like adding a huge dose of hope + joy to an abundance of illusion. What? Let me explain. This type of energy can be incredibly productive and conducive to spiritual evolution – especially on the collective scale. Simultaneously, there can be a rose-colored glasses feel to it for some. It all depends on the energy leading up to its inception. For example, the last time Jupiter was in Pisces was in 2010. What was happening in 2010? Well, as an example, Obama was president in the United States, and Obamacare showed up shortly after Jupiter moved into this sign. I personally STILL have no clear understanding of this healthcare system, even though I know I support the ideal of it. Was the ideal made real? Not sure. Energetically, Jupiter in Pisces introduces ideals for the masses – whether or not they continue to manifest into collective Oneness + mass Reality is up to us and our movement. I do personally have a clear “marker” of this energy in my own system…do you? How did the energy show up for you? How might you revisit this energy in 2022? It isn’t that far away, and 2022 seems to have a LOT of implications astrologically. Get your natal chart reading + transit reading here, if you’re interested!

Pluto.

PLUTO says “I TRANSFORM.”

 

Pluto is still a “planet” through the astrological lens. It is a transpersonal symbol + archetype. In fact, the very notion that (a part of) the collective “changed” its identity from a planet to some kind of dwarf entity (in 2006) only reiterates the archetype: Pluto is about transformation itself.

The United States has been dealing with its Pluto Return since 2008 – the financial crisis (2nd House in the US chart – House of money, values, self-worth, stability, etc.). The United States will feel its EXACT return on 2/22/2022. Any numerologist + non-numerologist alike can see the intensity of those numbers. Of all dates… 2/22/22… makes me think of Mark Danielewski’s book, Only Revolutions. Anyhow, onto this distant Star’s energy – felt both personally + collectively!

PLUTO IN ARIES

Pluto in Aries is about transformation through the Aries’ energetic field. The person with their Pluto in Aries may unconsciously + consciously seek or invite change through rather combative means. This is intense, impulsive, rash, and often quite ruthless energy. This is the “I want change + I want it NOW” energy. We haven’t seen this show up in an individual’s natal chart since the 1830s or so, and we won’t see it again (unless something unexpected shifts) until the 2060s. Feel free to research what was happening around the globe in the 1830s… you will see Pluto in Aries enacted for sure.

Pluto IN TAURUS

The Pluto in Taurus native will most likely come across as highly rigid. I see the roots of a tree for this energy – and the amount of sunlight won’t necessarily hinder how this vibration decides to grow. To survive. Think: INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION. Again, we haven’t seen this show up in a natal chart since the mid- to late- 1800s. It might be fun for those of you interested to dig into the events of the 1800s as Pluto shifted from sign to sign. Or, you could always read Cosmos + Psyche, by Richard Tarnas. That book has A LOT of information on transpersonal energetics!

pluto IN GEMINI

The Pluto in Gemini energy wants to take what’s been built and transform it into new, rather local connections. This the collective (and personal) mind on overdrive! It is no wonder we break up our time periods into titled segments like: The Industrial REVOLUTION, the Depression, the Information Age, etc. These are how we navigate + mark time as we see things changing on the collective front. The last time Pluto was in Gemini, it was the early 1900s. There are certainly some still alive with this in their natal chart. You know what? There may be some still alive with it in Aries or Taurus for all I know. Regardless, it is best to look at these segments as just that: energetic segments from Pisces…to Aries…bleeding into Taurus…and from there into Gemini…so on and so forth. What do you notice when you see these cycles happening? Who do you know with their natal Pluto in Gemini? They’ve seen a few changes in their lives, I’d say.

pluto IN CANCER

The Pluto in Cancer native may be seen as harnessing the “beginnings” of transformation on the feminine, motherly, emotional front. The “beginnings” are perpetually happening; this period of time was just one where the energy was more collectively seen, understood and/or awakened to through the chaos that seems to align with transformative processes. Pluto in Cancer babies are the Pre-Depression + Depression Era starseeds. They held and potentially still hold the energy needed to shift into yet a new cycle/revolution. That time was about the appearance of collective emotional/physical changes. Who do you know born between 1913 – 1939? Are you of that grand shift? If so, thank you. We needed your support to get us into Now (your opposite): Pluto in Capricorn. As above…so below. 

pluto IN LEO

The Pluto in Leo native was/is embodied from the strings and ends of the Pluto in Cancer generation. We went from collective/personal emotional + physical alternations to the “child” ready to be its OWN Self. To be an individual. Pluto in Leo is an interesting paradox in a way because it deals with BOTH personal (Leo) + collective (Pluto) in a very unique way. I imagine the Pluto in Cancer period as the pregnant woman; the Pluto in Leo period is about birth, new creation, and a focus on Self (both “higher” and “lower”). This is the BABY BOOMER generation. A lot of them have since left the Planet, but many are still around. What do we learn from them? What can we still learn from them? How are we interacting with the energy from the 1940s + 1950s now? Take a look around! We’ve come so far from all the generations before. This generation is certainly no less apparent in its collective affect + effect on us now. Keep reading..we are most likely beyond the child stage. Maybe we are teenagers now. 🙂

pluto IN VIRGO

The Pluto in Virgo type was born around 1956 – 1972. A lot of these light bodies are still around. Pluto in Virgo energy is yet another revolutionary energy based on the previous changes. Pluto acts as a type of “ripple effect” energy – unless Uranus is involved to shift the change of the changes! And, Uranus is and was involved over the years. Anyhow: focus. That’s what this energy was about, and those that are still living from that time period are helping the rest of us to focus our energies a bit more as we move along. Thank goodness. Virgo can be critical, detail-oriented, and yet in service of others. Couple that with Pluto and we have a very wide + wise, and yet narrow + nuclear type of energy at work. What happened during that time period? Just prior, we collectively experienced Hiroshima. That was Pluto in Leo (self-destructive) working its way into a new wave (healing + helping others). Ahhh, there is so, so, so much that happened between Pluto in Cancer to Pluto in Virgo. Can you see the changes unfolding? 

pluto IN LIBRA

The Pluto in Libra individual is/was a part of a generation that is still mostly alive and kicking! These are folks born between 1972ish – 1984ish. Yep. The “Generation X” +  the “Millennials” coming to fruition. I am personally on the cusp of this energy as a 1985er, so I kind of get the end of the one and the beginning of the next if we’re looking at strict cycle times. Regardless, and in my perspective, the Pluto in Libra generation was/is dealing with transformation in regards to overall balance + relations. These are the energies showing up to further refine and diplomatically represent “sides” to any equation or debate. The 50s and 60s certainly shook things up around the world… the 70s and early 80s were about re-balancing all of that activity. Did we balance things? I think we did, as best we could given the times + circumstances overall. The Pluto in Scorpio generation may be depicted as the generation to dig deeper and shift/align things more from this generational cycle, prior to + gearing up for the next few cycles (consciously or not). Are you of this generation? What HOUSE does this energy show up in for you? That’s *key*🔑🔐 … to learn more, book your natal reading or mentoring with me!

pluto IN SCORPIO

The Pluto in Scorpio native is working with Pluto energy in its HOME. What does that mean? Many, many things. This generation catered to a lot of things prior to the birth of the Internet in 1996 (Pluto in Sagittarius). That says something. Between 1984ish – 1995ish, this generation sparked a lot of emotional endings and beginnings that were (and still are) embedded deep in the collective consciousness. For example, the end of the Cold War. The Berlin Wall came down during the early seeds of this energy. Destruction breeds creation… and the Pluto in Scorpio energy made and makes that clear! It will smash the icy nature of Scorpio and make things thaw out more quickly, Kind of like a defroster type of energy. The individuals with this in their chart have one part of the blueprint for the next major shift. They may appear quite intense, emotional 😭 , destructive + violent – with a purpose/cause (Pluto in Sagittarius/Pluto in Libra, respectively) on some level or another. Keep an eye out. This generation is likely quite linked to/with the shift coming up between now and 2022 (+ beyond)…

pluto IN SAGITTARIUS

…And so are these folks! The Pluto in Sagittarius native is already harnessing power(s) for the next shift. Coming off the of the heels of the Pluto in Scorpio generation, these are the Internet babies. The Higher Mind – Different Truth(s) – Seeker and Searching-for-meaning babies. Well, they aren’t babies anymore. Between 1995ish and 2008ish…yea. The Internet + the global financial crisis (a word associated with Plutonian energy). These are THOSE babies grown up. What is this generational energy imbuing in us? Obviously change. But change on specific levels: Truth/truths, Purpose, Value, and more. Pluto was in connection with our galactic center (29 degrees Sag) in 2008. This generational energy was making way for COGNITION to become RECOGNITION in the next cycle. What was 2008 like for you? How are you dancing through the Now? The Pluto in Sagittarius individual will likely affect and or effect you if you interact with them now (and you probably do somehow). Gather further insight into your PERSONAL energy as an individual in this generation by booking a reading or requesting mentoring!

pluto IN CAPRICORN

The Pluto in Capricorn native is pretty young – or not even born yet. These are the children born between roughly 2008 – 2024. What are we feeling/sensing from these kiddos? What have the older generations been dealing with? Pluto in Capricorn on its own is about transformations to our seemingly solid structures. Capricorn takes ownership of the bones, teeth, our skin. Metaphorically, this energy ought to shake all of those things up! It has, hasn’t it? Look at the world right now… we are in need of this energetic shift. It may not be pretty or easy of comfortable, but luckily the Pluto in Capricorn individuals are our future. They carry the signatures – in different personal areas – to change how we are handling our business (and businesses). They offer us insight into where the faults in our systems are, and they offer us opportunity after opportunity to change things. On a personal note, I’ve been working with kids since 2013. It is interesting to see how parenting (Capricorn’s domain) is changing with these kids. A lot of these kids need new structures to thrive. The old ones aren’t working. It almost feels Aquarian to me, but I see how this seems to be the middle zone of breaking things down first – before the next generation…

pluto IN AQUARIUS

The Pluto in Aquarius babies are a generation I hope I get to witness. Assuming we are still kicking (and our Planet hasn’t kicked humanity off it Her), this generation will show up between 2024 – 2043. I try to stay away from predictions unless I get the go-ahead from guides on some level or another. So, I cannot predict what things will look like…but it feels like true, innovative means will be necessary for us all. Pluto in Aquarius draws in Uranian energy, and by 2024, Uranus will be continuing its travel through Capricorn. However the United States deals with its Pluto return will, ultimately, ripple out the rest of the world. Still, no matter where I look, it appears as though our current structures will, indeed, be a thing of the past. Pluto in Aquarius energy is about calling in a new world order. That is not meant to bring fear – in fact, it feels like truly awakened collective change, which aligns more fully with Higher Mind. Add in Uranus through Capricorn + Saturn through Pisces… we are looking at MAJOR collective shifts. The babies born in that generation will certainly, in my opinion, “know” what to do and how to do it. These are the powerful innovators headed our way to guide us along. No matter how young, it is important to look at our current children and the next wave as our teachers.

pluto IN PISCES

The Pluto in Pisces natives will, hopefully, bring us further refinement to how we conduct this thing called life when the years 2043 – 2066 come around. Pluto is rather comfortable in another water sign – the difference is in the movement. For example, Scorpio is fixed – think ice. Cancer is cardinal – think the ocean + the moon’s tidal significance (ups, downs, equilibrium). Pisces is like really looking at water as a WHOLE. All of it. Pluto in Pisces, then, seems to want to change the WHOLE. It doesn’t want to wait until the ice melts. It doesn’t want to hang out and go with the tidal flow. It wants to MOVE THE WATER ITSELF. This is a change in emotional + spiritual connection on a pretty focused level. If I am still around, I would like to exit the Earth during this period! Seems like a pretty solid place to exit before the next round of Pluto in Aries… All of it is simply REVOLUTIONS. 

Venus.

Venus says “I love + harmonize.”

VENUS IN ARIES

Venus in Aries is about loving and harmonizing through the Aries’ energetic field. The person with their Venus in Aries may express their personal love with fast energy: flirting with anyone they feel a “spark” with, appearing quite direct, assertive, and/or aggressive with affections, moving quickly into and/or out of a relationship, etc. Venus in Aries is a very self-centered energy; however, it is not necessarily narcissistic. There is a strong connection with action and “fireworks” for the Venus in Aries individual, and how they go about finding that connection in another person is heavily dependent on many other parts to their Being. Regardless, the person with their Venus in Aries may easily become bored when things are not moving along at the pace they feel accustomed to with regards to love, beauty, and harmony.

VENUS IN TAURUS

The Venus in Taurus native will most likely come across as highly dependable. Since Venus rules Taurus (and Libra), this energy generally manifests both ways: they seek harmonization with a partner who is also highly dependable. The need for security, comfort, and sensual pleasure of all kinds becomes highlighted for the Venus in Taurus individual. Anything that links with ideas and beliefs and values about “worth” come into play for this type of energetic field. The Venus in Taurus person will most likely come across as highly affectionate – especially noticeable with touching, hugging, kissing, etc. Again, this love energy is focused on comfort and sensual pleasure. It is a bonding and attachment type of energy – make sure you give back!

VENUS IN GEMINI

The Venus in Gemini native expresses love through the intellect and through communication in general. These are the writers, the poets, the musicians…all of which use their hands and their mind to convey messages of love and harmony. These types like to talk…and talk and talk and talk! Some may consider the Venus in Gemini individual as “two-faced” or a “tease” of some kind; however, the energy is truly centered on harmonizing through the intellect, the mind and communication. Banter, wittiness, a strength in knowledge on some level…all of these may come into play for the Venus in Gemini native. Overall, these folks may appear to be more “surface” to some extent, given their need for variety. In other words, this type of love energy may not want to dive into heavy or deeper conversations without other natural indicators (which can be seen in the natal chart).

VENUS IN CANCER

The Venus in Cancer native may express love in a stereotypical “motherly” way. They are nurturing, protective, sensitive and caring in their love nature(s). Sometimes this energy appears to get out of balance and interactions can feel smothering or overbearing; still, the underlying energy is about love and harmony with whatever is going on. Those individuals with their Venus in Cancer seek to find a sense of reliability, comfort, and stability in their interactions as if everything were in a womb (or a shell: think Crab qualities). They love and harmonize with an ultimate desire for balance: snuggle up with this energy and all could be good!

VENUS IN LEO

The Venus in Leo native may express love in a number of ways, but the heart is absolutely involved (Leo’s physical manifestation in the body = the heart/spine). Leo is about the heart, courage, the will, drive, pride, and so much more. When Venus shows up in Leo for any individual, these keywords may come into play – and so may the keyword “play” itself! The Venus in Leo individual may appear to be quite childlike, exuberant, dramatic or zealous, magnanimous and unique all at once. They may tend to express love with a lot of romance and a lot of loyalty too. In other words, a theatrical flair with a dash of lighthearted fun tends to depict what this energy is about. You’re going to get a lot of attention from a Venus in Leo native…reciprocating is key! That, to them, is harmony.

VENUS IN VIRGO

The Venus in Virgo native will likely express their love through subtle details with a focus on health and service. These individuals may seem to criticize or nag a bit with their affections – in a lighthearted way. They play off of the previous sign’s energies, and they extend into the next sign’s energies as well (just as each sign does to some extent). So, the Venus in Virgo native may take parts of the playfulness in Leo energy and couple it with the balance-seeking needs of Libra. Their “perfectionist” attitudes really hold insecurities underneath, and they love best when those sentiments are expressed and understood with all parties involved. With Venus in Virgo, all one has to remember is it is the little things that count! 

VENUS IN LIBRA

The Venus in Libra native is at home! While Venus rules Taurus as well, the Venus in Libra individual will extend Venusian energy beyond what Taurus represents (beauty, stability, sensual pleasures, etc.). This individual may tend to add to Taurus’ energy and place an emphasis on relationships in general. In other words, the beauty, the stability, the harmony, the love, the sensuality, and more – all of these things are fully expressed and understood better with and through an Other. The Venus in Libra native thrives on relationship, and particularly harmonious ones. However, even when not in “harmony,” the Venus in Libra native will strive for that. Fairness, equality, and justice all play key roles in relating for the Venus in Libra individual. Essentially, this type of energy is about sharing and honesty as those things are directly linked to the concepts of love and harmony for them!

venuS IN SCORPIO

The Venus in Scorpio native is intense with an all-or-nothing energy. In fact, quite often, the energy is so heavily-held that it can feel controlling, possessive and/or obsessive. However, and underneath it all, there is truly the desire to bond and connect deeply, intimately, sexually, and with a strong sense of loyalty and commitment attached as well. These are dedicated souls in what they feel “love” is. As an opposite sign to Taurus, the individual with Venus in Scorpio may appear to be (and/or actually be) the jealous type. Their apparent jealousy may stem from much of what is already described here, but in general, Venus in Scorpio acts as a sort of “dark side” to love. The “dark” is not intended to be negative; instead, it is best understood as a strong, instinctive desire to unionize with an Other. When they love themselves fully first (as it is with any Being), the jealousy for another’s heart energy transforms itself. Regardless, the Venus in Scorpio native is a deep, contemplative, and emotionally-charged Being! Embrace them.

VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS

The Venus in Sagittarius native is a gypsy lover! The energy of Sagittarius blends with the Venusian qualities in such a way that these individuals tend to come off as “non-committal.” What is desired by these folks is a sense of expansiveness – whether literal or figurative (outer travel or inner travel, for example). Their love is expressed through open-mindedness, joviality and (paradoxically) some seriousness, bluntness, etc. These are the souls that love with a breath of fresh air, so to speak. The Venus in Sagittarius native wants to explore and expand everything it comes into contact with. Connected with Pisces in a way, these individuals are in love with life and express their sentiments with or without any Other!

VENUS IN CAPRICORN

The Venus in Capricorn native is a cautious and responsible lover. They may be traditional romantics at heart, but they may express their love slowly, deliberately, and with an eye towards the future. They are truly committed types, and they are best in harmony with those that relate to their dependable nature. An individual with Venus in Capricorn may not be the most spontaneous of all individuals when it comes to matters of the heart, but they are rock solid partners!

VENUS IN AQUARIUS

The Venus in Aquarius native is the detached, aloof, and rebellious type. The person with their Venus in Aquarius may express their personal love in an unconventional or eccentric manner. They loathe rules, and so any sort of traditional relationship may bore them fairly quickly. Venus in Aquarius wants a friend in their partner, and they want a friend who they can truly rely on to create space for their intellect. There is a strong connection with progressive, innovative, and forward-thinking energy for these folks, so space for that and, truly, space in general works best for these natives. Harmony for Venus in Aquarius is in the love of uniqueness and individuality!

VENUS IN PISCES

The Venus in Pisces native is the sensitive dreamer type. The person with their Venus in Pisces may express their personal love as, paradoxically, transpersonal love. These are the unconditional lovers, and they tend to share their love with all of the world! They aren’t real planners; they would rather go-with-the-flow and see how things progress in any and all interactions. For this reason, they are not necessarily oriented towards commitment. Those that do commit, though, generally find themselves with someone who understands their soft-hearted, romantic, and somewhat unreliable nature.

Step One :: Get comfortable.

Step Two :: Take some deep breaths. I N H A L E deeply through your nose and E X H A L E through your nose. Let your breaths pool deep into your belly. Repeat 4x.

Step Three :: Begin by I N H A L I NG through your nose. As you E X H A L E feel yourself R E L E A S I N G energy you do not need through your C R O W N. See this energy transform into a stream of W H I T E light, connecting to the heavens. I N H A L E through your nose very slowly once more. E X H A L E through your nose releasing energy you do not need again while seeing it release through the B A S E of your spine. See it transforming into G O L D E N light, moving to the core of the Earth.

Step Four :: Now, imagine you A R E the Earth. Feel the C R O W N of your head aligned with the North Pole and feel the B A S E of your spine seated in the South Pole. Let your arms and legs relax. Sense the rotation of the earth. Notice how she breathes, pulses, radiates…

Step Five :: Feel wherever you are “out-of-balance” and sense what you may be here to creatively master. Is there a particular place in your body or chakra system that wants your attention? Bring your hands to that area or those areas. Let your hands do whatever they need to do in that area or those areas to begin to bring things into balance more. Take T H R E E deep breaths and on the last exhale, give gratitude to this life, on this planet.

If you wish, ask for Mother Earth to give you messages through symbols over the next 30 days before Harvest Time 2017. What do you need? What are you goals? What is your next step? Offer up the question(s) you seek answers to and see what unfolds. May you + yours + our Home become even more amazing.

Step One :: Get comfortable.

Step Two :: Take some deep breaths. I N H A L E fully – through your mouth and feel your belly, lungs and chest expand. Now E X H A L E through your mouth releasing air from the belly first, then lungs and finally chest. Repeat 3X.

Step Three :: Now, imagine a feather floating on A I R . See it descending from the heavens, floating down to Earth and blessing you with the purest distillation of the air element. R E C E I V E. What kind of feather has shown up for you? Take note of this as the type of bird totem that shows up is calling to you, sending you a message from the realm of the air.

Step Four :: Move into Y O U R. A I R. What about your own “air” do you notice? How does your breath feel? The space around you? Your mental faculties? Whatever shows up for you, feel this feather softening any harsh energies, releasing auric debris and bringing your A I R into deeper alignment.

Step Five :: Make ‘Okay’ symbols with your hands held in front of your chest. Interlock your fingers. Let your left fingers open toward the sky and your right fingers open toward the Earth. Breathe while you relax the shoulders and arms and hold them in front of the H E A R T.

As you re-enter your day/night from this mass meditation, I recommend drinking lots and lots of water + refocusing on your breath randomly throughout your days – at least for the next day or so. May you be revitalized + energized + balanced! Thank you!!

Step One :: Get comfortable.

Step Two :: Take some deep breaths. I N H A L E fully – through your belly, your back, your shoulders. Now E X H A L E as if you’re whispering + laughing at the same time. In other words, stagger your release on the out breath. It helps to smile and actually laugh if you can :). Repeat 3X.

Step Three :: Now, imagine F I R E. However it shows up means something. From a candle, to a fireplace or stove or campfire, all the way to a wildfire or volcanic eruption. Choose your image of fire to focus on. How is the fire moving? Is it controlled or contained somehow? Does it move itself in response to its surroundings? What sound(s) do you hear? Keep breathing and imagine that fire purifying + cleansing all that needs to be released. See it becoming whatever it needs to become in your mind’s eye.

Step Four :: Move into Y O U R . F I R E. Your fire is everywhere in a way, but it may help to focus on where you draw your energy from. I suggest the heart center, the solar plexus, and/or the sacral – somewhere in the middle region of your body. It may help to imagine you’re like our Sun… the middle region is brighter than the outer layers of light. Regardless of where you focus, M O V E the energy. How do you want to move it around? What patterns or shapes does this movement make? Do you need to literally move or dance around? Notice how/where you want the energy to go and release whatever needs to be released from parts of your body.

Step Five :: Bring your hands to your crown, imagine yourself wearing a crown, or simply focus on the top of your head. Take O N E big breath and H O L D your energy there for five seconds or more. Create a positive intention for A L L . F I R E… and exhale it into existence. T H A N K . Y O U .

As you re-enter your day/night from this mass meditation, I recommend drinking lots of water + burning something. Incense, resin, or any other kind of smoke-inducing agent is great so long as you are M I N D F U L  during the process. Imagine the scene you created during this meditation as things burn off. May you be lighter + brighter + balanced! Thank you!!

Step One :: Get comfortable.

Step Two :: Take some deep breaths. I N H A L E fully – through your belly, your back, your shoulders. H O L D for three seconds at the top of your inhale. Now E X H A L E… H O L D for three seconds at the bottom of your exhale. Repeat 4x.

Step Three :: Now, imagine W A T E R. Whatever comes to mind is great. The oceans, the rivers, the streams, tap water, a pool, a waterfall – whatever. How is the water flowing? What does it look like? Does it have a location on Earth? Keep breathing and imagine that water purifying + cleansing itself. See it becoming brighter, lighter, and flowing as it is meant to flow…

Step Four :: Move into Y O U R . W A T E R . You body is close to 70% water, just like our Planet Earth. Take that clean and purified water you just created in the outer world and move it into your inner world – your body. Every cell latches onto it and your body naturally feels brighter + lighter as you breathe… and with every heartbeat.

Step Five :: Bring your hands to your heart, imagine yourself holding your heart center, or simply focus on that area of your body as your breathe. Take O N E big breath and H O L D your energy there for three seconds. Create a positive intention for A L L . W A T E R… and exhale it into existence. T H A N K . Y O U .

As you re-enter your day/night from this mass meditation, I recommend drinking lots and lots of water for the next day or so. Imagine the scene you created during this meditation each time you drink water. May you be grounded + energized + balanced! Thank you!!

For the past few weeks (and before the recent fires and hurricanes in the US), I’ve felt called to create a mass meditation. It’s turned into a series of four mass meditations dedicated to balancing our planet Earth.
Stop what you are doing for 5 – 10 minutes and meditate with all of us.
It’s that simple.

  • D A Y . O N E : W A T E R – September 20th, 12pm Eastern Time.
  • D A Y . T W O : F I R E – September 22nd, 6pm Pacific Time.
  • D A Y . T H R E E : A I R – September 27th, 3pm Central Time.
  • D A Y . F O U R : E A R T H – September 29th, 9pm Mountain Time.

To join in, all you need to do is either follow me on Instagram @maieutic.arts OR look for the most recent blog posts right here, through the E V E N T S section!

*AS A SIDE NOTE :: As I was writing about the feminine asteroids, I realized how PERFECT all the timing was with everything coming to fruition. I only intended to write on the asteroids because Mercury was already covered in the Astrological Tidbits. Virgo energy felt very fitting for diving into the four major feminine asteroids a bit. Lo and behold, these energies seem to line up EXACTLY with these mass meditation calls!! Ceres is akin to WATER meditation; Pallas is akin to the FIRE meditation; Vesta is akin to the AIR meditation (she keeps the fire going); and Juno is akin to the EARTH meditation. Synchronicity much?! Read about the asteroids here!

The (Major) Feminine Asteroids.

It”s taken me a while to even begin to understand the feminine asteroids: Ceres, Pallas Athene, Juno + Vesta. I’ve been practicing, studying, refining and evolving my beliefs through the astrological lens for more than 15 years now. Yet, I did not begin to take the feminine asteroid archetypes into account until about 4 years ago. Perfect timing, though, since these asteroids all take about 3.5 – 4.5 years to move through your whole chart.

What can I say about these archetypes? First of all, I do treat them as archetypes – as I do with all of the astrological symbols + concepts. I am a Jungian in this way, and I learn through my own unconscious/conscious filtering before I can see universality and apply any potential themes to the collective (or at least the collective clients that come my way).

Let’s begin with Ceres.

C E R E S :: W A T E R . E N E R G Y :: As a disclaimer, I will say my natal Ceres is on my Descendant at 24 degrees Cancer. That kind of placement has offered me a multitude of opportunities to understand this energy – and to OWN my projections (7th House cusp). The story goes that Ceres is a “harvest” archetype. This energy can be equated with nurturing, and thus motherhood since harvesting is about planting seeds for renewal and growth. Not surprisingly, Ceres is often considered to co-rule Cancer (alongside The Moon). I’ve come to agree with this depiction of the Ceres archetype through my own lens, particularly when coupled with The Moon’s transits. They seem to “talk” together.

Natal Ceres energy nearly always takes precedent in my mind. So a transiting Ceres is like saying, “your natal energy is showing up in this area of your life now.” For example, for the New Moon on September 19th, 2017 @ 11:30pm Mountain Time, Ceres will be at approximately 28 degrees Cancer – it just passed a conjunction to my own natal Ceres. The Moon will be at approximately 27 degrees Virgo – which, for me, resides in my 8th House; my natal Moon is at 4 degrees Leo, and these energies are, indeed, “talking” together! In fact, I’ve felt EXTREMELY pulled into creating 4 mass meditations posted through Instagram @maieutic.arts + @vanessalamorte and right here on this blog. How does your Ceres energy show up? How is your moon “talking” with her? Feel free to contact me for mentoring services on this energy if you are interested in your personal astrology!

How about that Pallas Athene? Some say Pallas Athena… either way, let’s go with Pallas for short.

P A L L A S :: F I R E . E N E R G Y :: You know that movie, Hidden Figures? The one with the three African-American women who offer us a behind-the-scenes rendition of all that it took for John Glenn (astronaut) to make to space and back? Yea. That movie is like the Pallas archetype in action. Pallas is about fierce independence, grace + ageless feminine wisdom. I tend to equate Pallas with owls – and so does her archetypal story. Anyhow, let’s dig into it a bit more.

Pallas is the feminine warrior, usually represented as the female “assistant” to great male warriors. She offers invaluable advice + counsel to her male counterparts in her story. As an example to guide you, Pallas will be at 14 degrees Taurus EXACTLY on the New Moon, September 19th, 2017 @ 11:30pm Mountain Time. Where does her energy hit you? What is your natal Pallas energy like? Do you identify with her energy on some level? I know I do. My Pallas is conjunct my Chiron in Gemini in the 5th House, which is EXACTLY opposite my Uranus in Sagittarius in the 11th House. The New Moon this time around hits my North Node in Taurus. I think I may actually over-identify with Pallas’ energy as a stellium Leo – not even knowing about it until recently. Now that I’ve watched her move through my life, I can absolutely see how this energy plays out. And, it is still moving me to heal both myself and others along the way.

V E S T A :: A I R . E N E R G Y :: Oh, dear Vesta. The “vestal virgin” is so on point with Virgo energy as the goddess of the hearth fire. While her symbol is the flame, she is more like the feminine Saturnine energy + the idea of air for a fire… she keeps the flame going. If you think about Saturn (earth) + air (Mercury), it really makes perfect sense that she is equated with Virgo.

Vesta’s story is about keeping the feminine energy flowing. In her time, that meant making zero commitment to another person. The expression of the energy could (and can) range from purity and abstinence to many sexual partners with no intimacy. Why? The idea was to keep from being “touched” by anything that didn’t serve goddess energy. A variant of the fierce independence that, say, Pallas’ archetype denotes.

This archetype may seem out of sorts in some ways by todays various cultural progressions, but the energy lingers as a conscious construct to this day. In fact, in many cultures and religions, her archetype is still “the norm.” My Vesta is fairly prominent in my chart in a way as it conjuncts my South Node and opposes my Black Moon Lilith. I have swung in all sorts of different directions when it comes to relationships! From two long-term relationships, a turned-down proposal, and a hyper-sexualized + transformative relationship with a karmic twin brother…yea. I get Vesta. Do you? How does it show up for you? The New Moon on September 19th at 11:30pm Mountain Time shows Vesta at almost 1 degree of Libra. The sign of balance + relationships (among other qualities, of course). Hmm… how might that play out? Feel free to reach out for mentoring on this energy if you so desire.

Last, but certainly not least, Juno!

J U N O :: E A R T H . E N E R G Y :: In some kind of contrast to Vesta, Juno is pretty much focused on the partnering energy in any intimate relationship. It is typically associated with or named the “marriage” asteroid, meaning that wherever/however the energy shows up in your chart may symbolize your views on marriage + partnership.

In her story, her archetype holds a lot. From jealousy and bitterness to authority + control stuff all the way to bliss and pure monogamy. From my perspective and understanding of this energy, Juno is associated mostly with Capricorn energy. While Vesta is like the feminine Saturn (Capricorn’s ruler), there is an edge of airiness about her energy. The air keeps the fire going in a different direction, shall we say. Juno on the other hand seems to be more fully Capricorn in my mind. Very, very earthy. In fact, she tended to be seen as a woman armed with a goatskin cloak – goat is the symbol for Capricorn.

Anyhow, the easiest way to understand your own Juno energy is to look at BOTH the sign and the house it is located in. I will use my own Juno energy as an example. I was born with Juno in my 9th House at roughly 13.5 degrees into Libra. As I mentioned before, I’ve had alllllll sorts of relationships – intimate and romantic, intimate and non-romantic. I have never felt like I was going to be the marriage type, but if I meet a true partner/soulmate to spend as many days as possible in my life with…then yes. I am not only open to that, I am actually ONLY open to that. In other words, my Juno energy (coupled with all my other feminine asteroid energy + my chart as a whole) does reflect my own beliefs/story back to me. I ultimately can and will only settle for a fully EQUAL partnership. A balanced one on all levels, but with an emphasis on the mental plane. That’s Juno in Libra in the 9th. Plus Pallas in Gemini in the 5th House…and a stellium in Leo in the 7th. Makes sense. Do you want to make sense of your energy? Contact me for donation-based mentoring services!

Interestingly, and totally unplanned, these four feminine asteroids seem to line up with the mass meditations myself and my dear friend Vanessa Lamorte put together to kick off a dream class offering… the first mass meditation call is September 20th @ 12pm Eastern Time, and it is on the element, W A T E R . The next one will be F I R E; the third one will be A I R; the last one will be E A R T H. In respective order, these archetypes seem to want to join us!!
