2017: Being the Light



“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” ~Plato

Welcoming a One Universal New Year. A Completely New 9 Year Cycle.
2016 leaves it’s distinctive mark on many across the globe as everyone witnessed more than their fair share of conclusions, finalizations and closure within our human experiences that dynamically changed our perspectives during the past 12 months as we were asked to be Choosing Our Courage.

Our human experiences now shift during 2017, into a new cycle that collectively co-exists with our spiritual beings.

No matter what the energy of the world at large is, remember your life is always your individual as well as unique human experience, via your own personal forecast.

2017’s Global Forecast
It’s time to activate benevolence, creation and protection into our practices. In the 12 months of 2017, these are our preferred choices to make sure our motivations, desires, and abilities are responsive verses reactive- even when situations and circumstances beyond our personal control arise. Our unique goals and aspirations still belong to us amongst all that will attempt to distract us, which always needs to be carefully filtered.

The last time the world saw powerful initiations and beginnings was in 2008, and now is amidst once again, in an intense cycle of rebirth to allow to our proper evolution once again as 2017 unfolds. Overall, this years’ cycle now calls for our loyalty, heartfelt intentions and focus to inspire anew.

Equally requested is the deeper understanding of not allowing the worlds’ problems and fears to interfere with what we are meant to focus upon within our personal experiences. This is quintessential to comprehend during 2017, as the year shifts into a new course the world witnesses overall.

Individually Aligning with 2017
You do not need to be in an actual 1 Personal Year within your own forecast to see 2017’s collective energy unfold within your human experience. By following the timing is everything guidance that your personal forecast precisely provides, 2017’s Universal energy seeks to compliment your own changing cycles.

The year ahead is ever powerful to align us in a renewed sense of understanding our personal power and ways we are meant to shine our warmth and light wherever we are within our own personal forecast. To make the most of the collective energy that we co-exist within and are individually a part of as we evolve, remembering who we uniquely are and what our creative purpose is, is essential.

Let’s Look Back to Look Ahead
Over the past 9 years, on a collective level, we are all -while still honoring our own light- part of the larger whole that witnesses the bigger picture now powerfully plant new seeds in 2017 (1), the source of creation, beginnings and initiations amongst humanity, as we equally did in 2008.

Since then….

2009 (2) nurtured those seeds within it’s emotional and sensitive energy.
The home, family & sense of co-operation called across the board.

2010 (3) burst open those seeds, aligning in new knowledge and education.
Beliefs, philosophies & growth were stimulated on a global level.

2011 (4) formulated roots that secured the initiations of 2008 within a foundation.
The unexpected, breakthroughs & over coming obstacles called to all.

2012 (5) brought forth blossoming, new information, rapid movement and permanent changes.
Communications, mass changes & no going back unfolded for humanity.

2013 (6) called for understanding, compassion, adjustment, and balance.
Justice, judgment & harmony asked to be aligned and embraced.

2014 (7) asked for the “soul homework” the inner work and required reflection in order to heal.
Solitude, listening & remaining in the eye of the apparent storms called to be heard.

2015 (8) asked us to reap the harvest, find the recognition & accept the reward.
Only practicing responsibility, patience & honor allowed this stabilizing energy to flourish.

2016 (9) motivated us to draw upon conclusions, dramatic endings and release.
Penetration as well as aggressive action persisted, but a warriors’ courage was our cure.

2017’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery: 10, The Wheel of Fortune
While the singular energy of the 1 guides our Universal New Year, 2017 equally arrives (2 + 0 + 1 + 7 =10) at a compound number which brings further insight into navigating the months ahead overall. In Chaldean Numerology, compound number vibrations cast ancient wisdom that is still amazingly profound to take into consideration within our modern day.

10print10 The Wheel of Fortune
“10 is symbolized by Isis and Osiris. A number of rise and fall, according to personal desire. It will be known for good or evil, depending on the action chosen. 10 is capable of arousing the extreme responses of love or hate – respect or fear. There is no middle ground between honor or dishonor. Every event is self-determined. 10 is the symbol of LOve and LIght, which create all that can be imagined, and also contains the code: Imagine  10  Ordain. Imagine it and it shall be. Ordain it and it will materialize. The power for manifesting creative concepts into reality is inherent, but must be used with wisdom, since the power for absolute creation contains the polarity power for absolute destruction. Self-discipline and infinite compassion must accompany the gift of the former to avoid the tragedy of the latter. Discipline must precede Dominion. Unfortunately, 10 energy can fail to realize their power potential, and consequently harbor deep-seated feelings of frustration, causing them to feel unfulfilled, and to occasionally behave in a somewhat proud and arrogant manner to cover such unnecessary feelings of inferiority.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

The Planetary Channel for 2017’s Cycle: The Sun
Numerology, like astrology, is directly guided by the archetypes of our planets from above. As we translate what planetary movement means for us down here below, energetic patterns are always seen to cycle amongst us. It is now time to shift into the understanding of The Sun from the conflicting, angry, righteous and conclusive space that Mars’s archetype indicated would be symbolized within 2016 during our 9 Universal Year that required our courage overall.

The Sun as it influences the 1 energy symbolically translates the messages to be open to what is new, find inspiration, find our heart space, and decide what is going to make us feel good about change to make the next 8 years ultimately move forward with success. Especially so for 2017, the honorable practice of focusing upon heartfelt new intentions will become anyone’s friend.

More keys to unlock our success are seen as we look at the astrological signs The Sun will journey in during 2017 as they cast off their energetic affects. Equally, where The Sun transits within one’s natal birth chart grants a valuable forecast of how this energy creates personal changes for the individual.

Initiating Integrity: Sun in Capricorn to 19 January
Cultivating sociability and buoyancy opens our abilities to conserve, persevere and organize.

Forget False Pride, Lose the Ego & Choose the Heart
Those choosing to arrogantly serve the self in belief they are the best without genuine regard for others will not be well supported in 2017. Those exercising moves made in selfishness and egotistical actions will be standing upon their stage without an attentive audience.

It will be wise to become self-disciplined and be the quiet observer of what is circulating around us, rather than expect the world to be praising and applauding us. Seeing where our light is needed the most throughout 2017, allows us to properly plant our heartfelt seeds into places that will reap a rich harvest within our lives by 2024.

Being uncomfortable at first with what’s new, feeling uncertainty, and moving beyond fear to begin again will be felt across the board in 2017. The positive or negative of whatever humanity wishes to sow in deepest connections to what will conclude by 2025, it now shall commence.

Being the Light and Love
Choosing to stand in our brightest light as we imagine and ordain will be an amicable choice to make in 2017 to be able to move throughout the year with ultimate success. The guidance of love backing up our initiations equally promises long term fulfillment to unfold.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~Og Mandino

No matter what the world at large will choose to do to bring forward its’ new beginnings, remembering who we personally are and exhibiting our benevolence and self-discipline allows anyone in 2017 to be in their personal win-win.

Focusing upon work backed by heartfelt action will be all the more rewarded and supported by the year’s 10/1 energy by adhering to the power of absolute creation that it also symbolizes. Adapting to change through the eyes of honorable intentions can reflect amazing personal rewards to anyone throughout 2017. As when we activate the mindful choice of utilizing infinite compassion as we begin again, it is through imagining well that we will be able to ordain our goals- eliminating preventable frustration, unfulfilled desires and absolute destruction.

Wishing You the Best to Activate 2017’s Cycle of Being the Light allowing you to love in all your individual human experiences, Dear Star. Happy New Year. Namaste.

Star Meditation for the 10/1 Universal 2017 Year



LunarOScopes, 16 June 2015, Let’s Begin


New Moon in Gemini, 16 June Where Will You Feel Initiations & Fresh Starts?

What Are Your Feelings? Know Your Point of Attraction
The Law of Attraction promises that our feelings guide our thinking as we create our lives. Lunar energy is astrologically in charge of how our human emotions play out down here below. Each month, a New Moon marks a waxing cycle promoting start up energy while a Full Moon unfolds a waning cycle allowing completion, reflection and release. LunarOScopes capture this natural rhythm with specific forecasting advice, timing when your Sun Sign naturally benefits from initiation or letting go.

Being our Moon changes Zodiac Signs every couple of days, so too do our feelings down here below mirror these precise patterns that ultimately change our moods and sensations. Keeping our emotions healthy allows us to properly manifest our individual lives, as these cycles flavor us all uniquely.

New Moons start Waxing Phases, Let’s Begin
This two-week cycle normally favors actions involving anything new, as increasing energy moves forward throughout one half of your Zodiac Pie until the next Full Moon in Capricorn 01 July. However, the Shadow passage of 2015’s second Mercury Retrograde will be present until 27 June, asking for just that extra double-checking and mindfulness with our new beginning details.

Moon Void of Courses (Moon VOC) Time Out Periods
Even under a Waxing Phase, you will not wish to plan, plant, purchase, or initiate anything of importance is when the Moon is Void of Course. It is even more critical during the current Mercury Retrograde Shadow as well, to be well aware of when it is Moon VOC. This astrological passage occurs every couple days during our business and workweek, marking the critical request to take up in more reflective acts in solitude and engaging in quieter soul activities. Check in weekly with Empowerscopes on Empower Radio for the calendar’s most current Moon Void of Course times.

Reminder: Mercury Retrograde’s Shadow Ends 27 June
Mercury Retrograde is now over and it’s Shadow passage remains. This is the time that it will take our Messenger to retrace the very same degrees he just backtracked through 18 May to 11 June. Whatever we may have had to decide upon for the long term, now has the opportunity to “iron out the kinks” that may have gotten wrinkled into our retrograde fabrics as life rerouted and changed during the previous weeks. It is astrologically safe to move forward in life under the Shadow, however, crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s is still highly favored concerning the critical choices we are making for our future.

What’s Your Sun Sign?
The simplicity of your natal sun sign is a marvelous focal point to align peace of mind about what is naturally beginning with feeling within your life this lunar month.

ARIES: It’s time to focus upon the new with what I Communicate.
With your mindset already brewing away in recent weeks, new light now shines unity and synthesis to your brainstorms, welcoming complete fresh energy to your thinking. Keep up with your journaling, as you bring the healing flavor into play about those subconscious ways you must still heal from within.

TAURUS: It’s time to focus upon the new with what I Have.
Giving gratitude for what you already have seems to only make room in our lives for more. Honoring this practice, opens vibrant and valuable doors you can rely on for your earning power to increase. Look to groups, friends and future goals to guide you to places that center and complete your soul.

GEMINI: It’s time to focus upon the new with who I Am.
New flavors fly and eagerly surround your approaches to life, as the world absolutely looks at you differently, and these changes are packed with potential. The new mask you have been built to create a refreshed appearance now recognizes you for the true healer you are in your career and public life.

CANCER: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Process.
The time in the silent listen now unfolds more uniting rewards as you keep honoring your solitude, with new inner processes here finding you. Dreams can be stunning with messages for your waking life. As your beliefs equally join in the journey to ignite spiritual heights, this healing is your new truth.

LEO: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Socialize.
Inspiration completely ignites for your future to kick up the energy surrounding your goals along with your hopes and wishes, with new friends and groups stirring into this mix. This truly is something that allows your core source energy to revive, granting you a wealth like you have never had before.

VIRGO: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Structure.
As initiations energetically emerge to move your career and public life forward, it’s time for action, recognition and reward. As you see the genuine strength your partnerships are able to provide, those that are backed with spiritual guidance to bring healing into play, are the ones to keep talking to.

LIBRA: It’s time to focus upon the new with what I Believe.
Understand the truth about how your philosophies in life are now ready for inspiring growth as long journeys seek to spiritually educate and connect within you. With the equal healing that is in play surrounding your habits and routines, you’ll be serving the world better than ever, along with yourself.

SCORPIO: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Transform.
One of the most regenerative new moons of your year, embrace the genuine presence of rebirthing energy concerning your wealth and core source of your being. Take what is healing within your creative nature and begin to create in ways that truly allow you to spiritually shine upon your stage.

SAGITTARIUS: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Relate.
You already know the present energy speaks of matters relating to renewal in your business or personal partnerships. This ultimately refreshes your nurturing nature, and if some déjà vu flashes come in, these more than likely are attuned with healing vibes to absorb in your home and family life.

CAPRICORN: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Serve.
If you’ve stopped working so much and listened recently, logic has spoken to you already about new changes concerning your abilities to serve your health, habits & routines. As you bring your mindset into equal play, get out the paper and pen and allow a healing peace of mind to flow through you.

AQUARIUS: It’s time to focus upon the new where I Create.
Your creative nature has been seeing the spotlight, yet there are more curtains to raise with children or brain-children on your feeling radar. You have been waiting for this energy to bring in solidarity to your earning power, as those old wounds clear out here, letting in a valuable intuitive light to shine.

PISCES: It’s time to focus upon the new with how I Nurture.
As fresh energy now freely cultivates comfort for your home and family life, déjà vu is apt to channel important messages for you to receive. Conversation is in play about what is healing and resetting your entire approaches to life, as the world continues to be instinctively impressed with the new you.

Other Need To Knows About What June’s New Moon Means For You

Moon enters Gemini How Our Feelings Find Awareness
14 June, 1:51pm EDT to 16 June, 6:51pm EDT
Element: Air | Moon Transits in air signs attract intellectual stimulation, socialization & conversation
Engage: logic, observation, cleverness, reasonability, concentration, relaxation, organization
Avoid: opportunistic, craftiness, distractions, duality, instability, and suggestibility

New Moon When Our Feelings Find Initiation
16 June, 10:05am EDT, 25 degrees Gemini
Consciously Aim For: Synthesis
Waxing Phase: 25 degrees Gemini to 09 degrees Capricorn
Energy initiates and builds within this half of your Zodiac Pie throughout 02 June.
Moon Void of Course: 10:05am to 6:51pm EDT 16 June, Moon enters Cancer

25 degree point lunation’s are always ones that bring in the flavor of solitude, careful listening and observation concerning the new beginnings within our life. This month absolutely requires our sharpness of ‘Discrimination – Analysis’  that the 25’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery proclaims:

“25 bestows spiritual wisdom gained through careful observation of people and things, and worldly success by learning through experience. Its strength comes from overcoming disappointments in the early life and possessing the rare quality of learning from past mistakes. The judgment is excellent, but it’s not a material number; therefore, financial benefits of a substantial nature must be gained through other compound numbers found in the birth name and numerological analysis.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

Two important reasons why this Gemini New Moon asks for extra awareness concerning what’s new is, that one: as it starts, it simultaneously begins a reflective Moon Void of Course passage. Two, Mercury is not even a week off his Retrograde moving forward under his Shadow in Gemini. As normal astrological advice dictates, while it is ok to resume our normal activities, crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s applying our carpenter’s rule is wise to remember, as we kick off this waxing phase.

We’ll not be able to deny the new energy speaking from our Gemini slice of life, for coupled with this New Moon is Mars, right along side it at 24 degrees Gemini. As we experienced throughout the recent Mercury Retrograde, Mars in Gemini already has sparked and ignited plenty of changes. However, now is the time when the light turns green in order to successfully move forward.

With a Mars conjunct the New Moon initiating upon a Moon Void of Course, our feelings will not be shy, but filled with strength however they are channeling. Beware of emotional outbursts, jealously, and anger if issues are not settled properly where The Twins reside. Patience, as it has been for most of 2015, is ultimately required once again to take the course of energy and direct it to mindful intentions and action that create accomplishment.

Lastly, this New Moon -along with our Sun and Mars- closely squares up to Chiron at 21 degrees Pisces. Chiron allows us to understand and get in touch with our old wounds that must heal within our lives. As a forward flow of motion returns under this waxing phase, Chiron layers in a newly founded strength, calling us to connect with our feminine energy across the board.  Equally as we look to 25 degrees Gemini, this New Moon asks us all to sit within our subconscious realms right as it starts. It is in this stillness that we can heal, reset and bring our beings into the new light, by opening our heart and love up for the feminine, unblocking what may be buried within our psyches.

Star Meditations for 16 June’s 25 degree Gemini New Moon:

Affirmation for 25:
“Invention | Creativity will produce praiseworthy and profitable things.” ~Nostradamus

Divination for 25:
Your gains have been in the sacred realms. At last you have found a wonderful and harmonic balance in the energy centers of your body, and you have grasped the place of the human being in creation. Through your spiritual quest, your life has taken on a new holy meaning. It is a time of rejoicing, also a time to share your experiences and wisdom with those around you  who are striving to get to that sacred place.

Reflection for 25:
Should you face the challenge of this vibration, you may be stopped in your tracks a little by the potholes along the way. Protect yourself against the influence of others, and use your intuition when dealing  with people. Recognize your clairvoyance as a gift and listen to the messages from the postman of your soul. He is delivering a celestial roadmap to you- a road map to that magical, long-forgotten place.

Returning to Responsibility: Venus Retrograde in Capricorn

SharitaStarPsychicofthePlan21 December 2013 to 31 January 2014
Approach Began: 20 November 2013
Shadow Ends: 04 March 2014
While the very word “retrograde” scares the average star follower, bear in mind, Venus, our planet of love, harmony, beauty and luxury hasn’t taken a real vacation since June of 2012 when she was evening the score in Gemini.  For the next few weeks as our Sun transits in Capricorn and Aquarius, Venus will be resting up once more. Even though we aren’t as warned to watch out for zaniness as we are under such inner planetary reflection as Mercury and Mars request of us- a Venus Retrograde brings us to a deeper sense of what we value within our lives, what’s it all really worth and how we truly relate to it all.

What To Reflect Upon Under Venus Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, romance, and our ability to tap into the feminine. Beauty enhancements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange by “accident.” Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Wonderful Ways To Appreciate Venus Retrograde
BE charitable with money.
WATCH over-spending.
AVOID buying luxurious items, moving money to increase its’ value, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.
DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus Rx approved!
BE GRATEFUL for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what is worthy of appreciation: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it GO!
VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it at this time, and while in Capricorn the older, the better.
REVISIT old creative adventures and reflect upon ways to improve them.

Where To Responsibly Reflect: 28 degrees to 13 degrees Capricorn
This is the specific area of our Zodiac Pie that will be calling for a passage of reflection and review. Collectively, this retreat within The Goat specifies that we take a slower and patient pace here, and dive into what this sign requests when it comes to developing our self-reliance and eliminating our unwanted restrictions. The calling for constant, sincere, protective and challenging affections ask for necessary attention, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness.

From the collective perspective, the simplicity of knowing your sun sign is a great place to start while we all take up in value-oriented review. Here is one area of life where you are best to focus, taking time in retreat- to admire, weight the pros and cons, and then eliminate what is not worth the effort any longer. Equally, there is another area of life you are also asked for reflection within by knowing your Rising Sign/Ascendant, as the time of your birth provides this detail. Yet, we do always advise, have a professional astrologer do your math for you -i.e if your ASC is placed in the later degrees of any given sign, you’ll typically want to read for the sign after your ASC- for complete accuracy.

Aries: I Structure Career/Public Life/Opportunities

Taurus: I Believe Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education

Gemini: I Transform Core Regeneration/Sexuality/Wealth

Cancer: I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others

Leo: I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets

Virgo: I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs

Libra: I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments

Scorpio: I Communicate Thinking/Mentality/Communications

Sagittarius: I Have Values/Earning Power/Possessions

Capricorn: I Am Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations

Aquarius: I Process Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past

Pisces: I Socialize Innovations/Friendships/Organizations

Take these personalized areas of the life and see where you are asked to reflect upon Venus’s backwards journey. Releasing at this time what is no longer of value to you or seemingly worth it from the particular area of life that Venus Retrograde is calling for your review, is extremely favored.

We will stress again to remember no matter what sign you are, any creative endeavor involving the new in the areas of beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery, etc.), tend to not go over well. Have you any already underway or unfinished creative projects, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to a harmonious completion under this passage.

Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions for long-term success until after 31 January 2014, (but remember again Mercury goes Retrograde within days upon 06 February until the 28th, so it’s will definitely be a “tricky” start to 2014). Venus Retrogrades become buyer’s markets, as the victor is the one with the bargain, but they also may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting at the time. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus and solution seeking research.

The Approach and Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Be aware that decisions made as Venus started her approach -on 19 November while going Direct from 13 degrees Capricorn until Retrograde motion begins 21 December- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 31 January, the shadow will prevail until 03 March when Venus returns to 28 degrees Capricorn, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde. Decisions will be rather challenged as our Universal New Year begins, as our first Mercury Retrograde of 2014 runs 06 to 28 February, and then Mars Retrogrades 01 March to 19 May. As approaches, shadows, and retrogrades will all intersect and overlap, our inner planets will be practically screaming from above to reflect and reassess like we’ve never done so before.

The Cardinal Axis Calling For Restructure
How We Lead In Life Beckons for Change
This Venus Retrograde is quite involved with what else is going on within all of the leadership signs within our Zodiac skies. With Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, Mars in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn, she is in close contact with all of these planets under her time of review, which calls for us all to further recognize just how much the world is changing in dynamic ways. As current transits within our leadership signs have a strong presence to change our direction, the intense calling presses on to wake-up the collective to become more aware of what we’ve thought we’ve understood and have been comfortable with is not what it once was.

By the close of Venus Retrograde, she and Pluto will be in the form a conjunction (same sign, same degree points), as she will be one degree away as Pluto will be at 12 degrees Capricorn. This intensity will unravel quite the surge to bring in some overturns, so expecting transformation is wise to do here. Emotions will be running high, and karmic experiences will be prominent within Capricorn. Let’s put it this way, you’ll see quite the regenerative energy unfolding where The Goat affects your life as Venus stations to go Direct by the close of January.

Uranus will be at 09 degrees Aries, which will cause some tension as a close square forms (90 degree, cornered, blocked in energy) from where The Ram pioneers within our Zodiac skies to Venus’s turn around point. When we look to squares as ways to formulate a new structure rather than view them as stagnant and blocking: use this to tap into some true intuitive gifts that will wish to unexpectedly inspire between the Aries and Capricorn slices of life (the entire calling right now of the ongoing Pluto Uranus Square Dance). Be sure to avoid erratic reactions, for as Venus Retrograde concludes, you may find a difference has displayed itself as far as what your natural routine has been between these two areas of your life.

Abundant Jupiter -also under Retrograde in Cancer- opposes Venus and Pluto, expanding our learning in another reflective tug from across the way at 12 degrees by the time Venus turns herself around. While Venus and Jupiter aspects typically enjoy financial gain, the warning here becomes even stronger to watch extravagance and excess under this period, because the opposing energy between Venus and Jupiter is when they are both in Retrograde passages.  Exactly as Venus goes Direct, Jupiter directly opposes Pluto, promising to unveil further intensity between Cancer and Capricorn involving unfulfilled desires, rebelliousness, arrogance and prodigal experiences.

Motivation from Mars in Libra -who starts the approach to his Retrograde (01 March to 19 May 2014) shortly after Christmas- will be moving earlier in our Venus Retrograde passage, as his direct square occurs upon 16 January to Venus while both planets are at 18 degrees of their respective signs. Demonstrative energies will display themselves between Libra and Capricorn, stimulating that we seek to resolve any inconsistencies between these two areas of our lives, and discover more passionate ways to find the means to more simple pleasures.

Lexigrams and Venus Retrograde
What’s really in a name or title cannot be left out of this retrograde understanding. Whichever planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attracts herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we find that can be phrased to spell out the real truth of how to reap reward and stay in true tune with her request to revisit how we earn, understand and relate as we return to save our lives.



Appreciate this time for reassessment where The Goat ambitiously climbs in your Zodiac Pie Dear Stars. Once 31 January 2014 comes to pass, the activity within this area of the life will start to stir and reap goodness within your life unlike any other in quite some time. Remember, what is deserved here comes from the acts of review under the retrograde. So rest and reset now, then happily gather your reward later! Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated, but what is meant to become simpler here, is the real value you’ll discover that is a genuine gift you’ve been patiently waiting for.
