“Sitting In The Stand Of The Sports Arena
Waiting For The Show To Begin
Red Lights, Green Lights, Strawberry Wine,
A Good Friend Of Mine, Follows The Stars,
Venus And Mars
Are Alright Tonight.”

Paul McCartney – Venus And Mars 

Venus finally catches up with Mars, the object of her desire, 2 hours before the Full Moon in Aries, on October 5/6 2017. This marks the end of Venus’s journey to the Underworld, which began earlier this year.  Venus finally meeting her Lover in Virgo, under a Full Aries Moon ( Mars ruled ) creating a wonderful space to complete and accelerate ideas, while continuing to make alterations on what we began earlier this year. Mars comes to accelerate and merge with Venus, adding the missing piece of the puzzle, as we enter the last quarter of the year.

Venus has endured long delays in meeting her lover Mars ! The Venus retrograde  2017 Venus Retrograde in Aries : Venus Underground   delayed her just degrees away from conjoining Mars. These delays put her and us in a cycle of self-evaluation and reassessment around themes of Relationships, our body & looks, our Health,  how we present to the world and the line between I & We in Relationships . These issues were all under the microscope March – May this year, on a physical level.

Venus finally meeting Mars gives us the traction to really push forward with any innovations or commitment to ourselves from that time. We now have an energetic boost around what we wanted to evolve too. The rocket fuel has been added as slate is being cleaned.

Post retrograde Venus has slowly been encroaching on Mars,  the planet of power and masculinity for most of the middle part of the year. The Full Moon in Aries at the same time is a dualistic closing as well as a new beginning. Mars and the Full Moon now allows a cleansing and full un-delayed merging and blending of these masculine and feminine energies, now that Venus has finally caught up.  This conjunction is accelerating our progress on what we set out to achieve , 6 months ago, around Venusian ideals. We are now merging it with the masculine, finding the balance needed, completing the last bit of the picture, or having some real passion or desire to integrate these changes.

Beauty Routines, Heath Routines, Creative Routines, Wardrobe Purges, Moving house, Nutrition, adjusting day-to-day routines to add more pleasure etc,  these are all things that Mars is turbo charging with its conjunction with Venus. Evolving  and bringing to the light something that has been wanting to come forward, for most of the year. But there has always felt like there was a part lacking. Now is when things begin to flow and you finally feel a balance or a real progression forwards as motivation hits a higher gear.

One year from now, exactly, on October 4/5th 2018, Venus will enter her next Retrograde cycle in Scorpio. We now have a 1 year window of opportunity to work with the body, health and day-to-day routines before Venus once again goes retrograde where the contemplation will be a lot more psychological and internally focused with Scorpio. Now is about adjusting our routines and becoming more physical. Tweaking the Physical, before the Mind and Spirit become the focus of the next overhaul.  The only catch ?  that you don’t over do it. Once you lose the pleasure of it all and intensity, anger or resentment pop up, you have gone to far. Remember this is about balancing the pleasure and the motivation. They work together not against each other. Where this Venus Mars combo gets off on is the analysis of how you work with merging these energies day to day ! Why ? Because they’re meeting in Virgo.

Enjoy xx

 

Full Moon Eclipse in Aries – Total Eclipse of the Heart

self  

noun

  1. 1.
    a person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
    “our alienation from our true selves”
    synonyms:
    ego, I, oneself, persona, person, identity, character, personality,psyche, soul, spirit, mind, intellect, inner man/woman/person, inner self, one’s innermost feelings, one’s heart of hearts

September 27/28 brings to us a Full Supermoon Eclipse (see times below), the final in the Libra/Aries axis of eclipse which have been occurring since April 2014. This is the final eclipse of this series, denoting a focus on issues  based around the ideas of the ‘WE’ and ‘I’ in Relationships.  The  ‘I’ in Aries will be fusing, blocking, revealing, triggering the Libra ‘We’ element in relationships making the delineations round it more clear, pushing for an evening out of the balances or a refocusing of your energies, so you (the individual) have a stronger place to stand within it all.

Full moon eclipses are generally seen as being endings, however since this is the 4th and final in this series, the Aries Moon could be putting its final stamp on asserting YOUR agenda or affirming YOUR  need for independence or autonomy in relations with others, to benefit your emotional wellbeing. If you have been TOO independent, it will seek for you to put more balance into your relations.

Interestingly enough this Full Supermoon Eclipse (only the 4th since 1910) is occurring just as Venus the Goddess of Love, has just come out of her 40 day retrograde cycle, a cycle based on re-assessing values in relationships and your relationship / love for yourself. It is also occurring just after Mercury (Hermes – the Messenger of the Gods) has just gone retrograde in Libra, another transit based around re-assessment of communications, thought processes and how you learn and express yourself, in the sign of relationships and balance (Libra).  There is clearly a strong focus on pushing people to really assess and re-evaluate their interactions with themselves and others in relationships, and moving of the goal posts with regards to what you want to get out of your relationships. Do they serve you ? Do you get enough out of them ? Do they nourish you ? Do they match your values?  This final eclipse is going to give you an ultimatum which will help you push forward to get rid of any undesirable traits or relationships, within yourself and with others as well as removing relationships that aren’t working.

Eclipse energy can feel full on at the time, but it’s not always an instantaneous result, there can be delays in news being revealed by eclipses and there is definitely the idea that not all the news is fully revealed to you at the time of eclipse. Something is blocked or eclipsed from your vision, so this is generally not a great action time but its a very good assessment or reassessment time especially considering the current retrograde pattens are also pushing the same themes. If something does present that you have to react to, know that it has appeared to help push you along with the above themes. If something comes out of the blue or you are in a position where you just have to act, do so knowing that it is part of a bigger cycle of self development for positive individuation.

With Saturn moving into Sagittarius, it allows the development of these relationship and Libran ideas of balance and fairness to have a bit more buoyancy – a bit more float or fire. Rather than being a bogged down heavy water laden exercise as when Saturn was in Scorpio, this time around it will be a little bit more ….  “the truth will set me free!”  kinda optimism. Saturn’s move in to Sagittarius a week before the eclipse will help make this final eclipse more distinctive from the previous 3 that had the Saturn in Scorpio edge to them. There will be more optimism around the decisions met with the eclipse.

This eclipse is a occurring at 4 degrees Aries so anyone with any planets at this degree of any sign will be feeling the heat the most. People that don’t have the eclipse exactly hitting any natal planets will see the effect of this eclipse action all around them.

It will be a Supermoon Eclipse – meaning it will be one of the  closest orbits to the earth for this year. It is only the 4th time since 1910 that the SuperMoon has been on an Eclipse.  So while watching  the visual spectacle enjoy the final integration of finding your own Tūrangawaewae, or place to stand amongst the shifting sands of your own identity within the group.
