Ready or not- Ready is a re prefix word. here she comes or goes.

For 40 days and 40 nights Venus which rules love, women, creativity, sex, money, beauty, values and balance will be undergoing a death and rebirth from Scorpio back to Libra the sign she rules and the sign of balance.

Venus keywords:  women, friendships, artists, finances, fashion, genitals, girls, money lenders, good taste, the throat chakra [Taurus} truces, weddings, actors, wages, etc.

Expect all relationships to go through a deep review.

Basically do all the RE- PREFIX HINGS. Everything that starts with RE is the modus operendi.

Resistance- women will be doing this big time.

Resist the urge to buy anything. Venus rules shopping. DO NOT CONSUME anything new for 40 days except food. Find out what you really need to survive. 

Renegotiate mortgages, finances and earnings.

Relocate, Yah move.

Remodel- your self, your home, your wardrobe.

Repurpose and recycle reuse, Scorpio is sign of recycling

Recluse- be a hermit go into the underworld with Venus/Inanna.

Reflex- use your muscle where you can.

I advised women to be celibate for the 40 days to reinvent themselves, to use their sexuality to nourish themselves. This is also a good weapon against the Patriarchy.

Old lovers will reappear, you must renegotiate terms and boundaries.

Reminiscing, reflect ,keep a journal of how far you’ve come.

Venus retrogrades in an 8 year cycle. Think back to where you were in 2010. 

u.S. Mid-term elections are on November 6 during Venus Retorgrade. Women will be a huge influence restraining the Trump administration.

As Venus turns direct in Libra hopefully we will be able to bring some semblance of balance back into our lives on November 16.

Women, Kavanaugh and the Burning Path

October’s highlight is Venus Retrograde, of course, October 5-November 16 throwing old relationships, values, women’s issues and the economy into a tailspin.

October 5: Venus stations retrograde: 10 degrees 50 minutes Scorpio

Venus turns Retrograde squaring Mars and Lilith and the South Node in Aquarius 

This means: The revenge of angry women who have been denied their natural power for too long. If you’ve been watching the U.S. Supreme Court nominations you know what this is all about. The November elections are on November 6 when Venus is Retrograde back in Libra at that point.  This Retrograde will have much longer ramifications than just the 40 days. 

Lilith and Mars were exactly conjunct October 1st and will continue to be BFF’s in effect as one until Halloween when Venus moves back into Libra.

VENUS Retrogrades on the Burning Way or Via Combusta October 7-November 7

Via Combusta is Latin for “burning way” or “fiery way”  and is considered malefic or very bad according to ancient astrology by Al Biruni. Why? Because the Libra Sun is weak and in its fall in that sign {Sun is strongest in Aries}. Scorpio is the fall sign of the Moon which is strongest in opposite sign of Taurus. These two signs contain two malefic planets. Saturn which is exalted in Libra and Scorpio, ruled by Mars. 

The Via Combusta is an old Medieval Astrology tool describing the Zodiac between 15 degrees Libra and 15 degrees Scorpio between October 7 and November 7 Yet this is the darkest and alchemically powerful time of the year. Halloween is Witches new year so the bad influence notation is from the church of course. Further Pluto the modern ruler of Scorpio is also the Lord of death and rebirth. 

Venus Retrograde journey is told in astromyth as the tale of Queen Inanna going into the Underworld. It is the most ancient known poem in the world written between 3,500 -1,900 B.C. Inanna is an Ancient Sumerian Goddess of sex, fertility and war goes to be with her sister Ereshkigal whose husband has died. Inanna must be stripped of all her royal belongings down to being turned into a corpse and hung on a nail to rot by her revengeful sister. Read the whole story in the link below. The story is the basis for the myth of Persephone being raped into the Underworld by Pluto and this rings totally in synch with the current U.S. political situation. 

This further symbolizes women on fire and women burning down the house.

Angry backlashes from both men and women are highly volatile during this time. Be careful of gaslighting.

Many relationships will be put to the test during this time, as Venus will be Retrograde until November 16 and in the Underworld.

This is a time to do some really fierce shadow work. To scourge our deepest wounds. These are the sexual abuse issues which have been perpetrated against women for the last 5,000 to 10,000 years. This is billions of women. This is every woman living today in a Patriarchal culture which sees women as chattel, second-class citizens as without the right to their own authority over their own bodies. This includes the millions destroyed in the witch trials. The millions of female infants murdered today simply for being valueless as females.

The Patriarchy pumping and posturing its flaccid muscle is over.

The PHALLOCENTRIC WAY IS A FALLACY. The Emperor has no power. 

I was an early feminist. I realized my life and freedom was over at 12 when I first got my period. I’ve been an active feminist since 1970. The Goddess is alive and she is returning. We do not want to create more hate. She is the Goddess of Love and Beauty and we need more beauty and Love in the world now. Women need to first right the wrongs. But we shouldn’t perpetuate fear and hatred. We need to create new balances and that’s why Venus is turning direct again in Libra.

Venus turns direct at 25 degrees Libra conjunct big beneficial Fixed stars 

SPICA at 23 degrees 50 minutes LIBRA tropical

Is a blue Giant Star in Constellation of Virgo. It is one of the most famous 15 Behenian Stars of ancient lore. This was the Goddess Ishtar or Ceres/Demeter. The Ear of Grain is a very good star. It brings spiritual qualities. and It gives riches, overcomes contentions. removes scarcity and mischief. Spica rules the stone emerald, sage, trefoil, mugwort, periwinkle and mandrake root.

When Venus conjuncts Spica in traditional star lore it means; “benefits from friends, social success, false friend of one’s own sex.{1} 

And ARCTURUS at 24 degrees 14 Libra Tropical 

in Alpha Bootes  {shake your Bootes} it is a famous spiritual star. It gives riches, honour, high renown, and self-determination. Its image is a horse, wolf or man dancing. This star deals with darker aspects. Arcturus has a reputation of achieving justice through power. Arcturus was seen as the protector of Spica or Ishtar be the ancient Arabs. It is associated with the stone jasper, and plantain.

When Venus is conjunct Arcturus it indicates popularity and gifts and favours from friends and some false friends of the same sex. {1} 

Arcturus rules two inches below the navel in the human body which is the Hara or will centre or 3rd chakra. It would be wise to hold your hand’s open in a yoni symbol around this area and meditate and breathe into and through your hara. 

Do you have planets in the Via Combusta?

As with all retrogrades do not buy things especially things related to Venus- all women’s or feminine things, makeup clothes, shoes, art, and avoid socializing.

This will be a very interesting Halloween as Venus will transition from Scorpio to Libra on that day. October 8 is a Libra NEW Moon @ 15 DEGREES right on the beginning of that Via Combusta.

Venus Rules the Taurus Full Moon and is conjunct the Sun on it too

The Scorpio New Moon is November 7 with Venus in Libra and Jupiter on the 29th degree of Scorpio – more on that later.

These lunations will be extremely powerful 3 in a row.  will write more about that later.

Venus Retrograde is a time to reconsider your relationships and while she is in Scorpio to do your deep Shadow work. Check where the Venus retrograde path falls in your natal chart from 25 Libra to 10 degrees Scorpio.

Venus only turns Retrograde 7-8% of the time. Only 7-8% of the world’s population is born during a Venus Retrograde. Every 18-19 months she disappears for 40 days into the Underworld as is described by the ancient story of Goddess Inanna in the Underworld and changes from being the beautiful wishing evening star to the Morningstar.

Symbols of the degrees of Retrograde and Stationary

Janduz interpretation written by Astrotheme for 10 degrees Scorpio is

‘ A hare watches a bright star in the sky and does not see the gun is pointed at it.” The stationary degree of 25 Libra Janduz from Astrotheme.

“A knight wearing a coat of mail and holding a sword flies to aid a man threatened by a lion. “
SEX

Scorpio governs the reproductive organs. Venus is considered to be weakened in Scorpio, Mars home sign in traditional astrology.  Women would be way more likely to experience painful problems with their menstrual periods, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancies, profuse bleeding, difficulty conceiving, having miscarriages, abortions or other problems.  Men may also experience sexual problems like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. 

The Full Moon is in Taurus October 24/25 ruled by Venus

This may prove to be a time of major oppositions between the sexes as Taurus is notoriously stubborn. the locking of horns, The taunting the bull with a red cape and going in for the kill are all apt metaphors. 

November 7 the New Moon is in Scorpio on the 15th degree

Venus will be back in Libra at this time where she is in her strength and in her love romance relationship beauty reigning Queen.

Things to do with Venus Retrograde in Libra

Change up your beauty regimen, get a make-over or redecorate your home, bedroom or office. Beautify your beloved or your best friend for fun and out of love.

This is one of the darkest of the dark moons this year.  Much scheming, dark cloaking, invisible powers that be are moving the chessplayers around behind the scenes. Big juju is happening under the covers in the covens the sirens are rising. The witches are stirring their cauldrons making potions, saying incantations. Jupiter is also at the 29th degree of Scorpio making for one big last Sexual surprise before it enters Sagittarius the Next day!

Old lovers return. Venus Retrograde is karmic retribution in love.

Old tape loops about who you never forgave, forgot, want to get revenge on, rise up from the depth of you psyche. Be careful of behaving unconsciously and having sex with vampires during this time. It’s best to abstain. Seriously spend 40 days being celibate while Venus is retrograde could do wonders for your psyche. 

Money issues may also be an issue on world financial markets and in your personal life.

As all Retrograde times this is not necessarily a bad thing at all. It is a natural rest and review time. DO all things that begin with Re. Return, redirect, repossess, reflect, regress, repurpose, remedy, remember, and most of all relax.

Venus ends her Retrograde in Libra and we sure do need those balancing scales of justice to weigh out.
