Well, we're Libra New Moon-ing today with Venus just about stopped at 13 degrees Scorpio, preparing to turn retrograde in the wee hours tomorrow (2:08 a.m. CDT).
To say relationships are highlighted at the moment would be an understatement. To say there is a lot more going on beneath the surface than it would initially appear would also be.
As Venus stations, I'd like to bump this post up:
Ladies of the Zodiac...It's Showtime.
It's a post talking about the asteroid ingresses and feminine strategic positioning going on around this Venus retrograde station, including the Ceres-Pluto conjunction in early Capricorn with the North Node closely involved. This conjunction provides major thematic flavour for this Venus retrograde, and gives us some context as far as the merge-or-split vibe between masculine and feminine. Have I mentioned these are some serious energies we're working with?
It seems that every time I do a post on the asteroids or on the feminine influence, it gets buried a little. Interesting. So I'm unearthing this one again in case anyone would like this context.
Another post that gives broader context for the Venus retro is this one:
Venus, Eros and Mars in the Via Combusta and Karmic Love Cleansing Through the Alchemical Fires
I'll be away from the computer October 8-11, so there will be no readings at that time. I'll be back on the 12th as the Venus retro is getting fully underway...
