I thank you for that incredible response to my VENUS-JUPITER article about Aug 27 being one of the best days of the year, I got almost 10,000 views on it! I am a bit blown away. For me, the more of you reading this blog who can become aware of the cosmic messages, which astrology describes in both symbolic and very real terms, the more conscious lives we lead. If we understand the ancient Hermetic Maxim “As above, so below.” then we begin to remember who we really are; infinite souls, star beings who are intrinsically bound up with the entire Universe. We are much bigger than our teeny tiny little egos. We understand we serve a higher purpose which is collaborative and non-hierarchical.
There is so much going on. That wasn’t the only best day of the year. There are many more coming up in the nest week even, I’ll keep you updated. Please follow my blog. We just need to be aware of these energies and understand how to work with them. This is very ancient stuff. Our ancestors everywhere on the planet were incredibly intuitively tuned into the music of the spheres and projected the planets as Archetypal Gods and Goddesses. They had accompanying gemstones, metals, symbols, sigils, herbs, trees, musical notes, aromatherapy oils, hours of the day, and days of the week to appease the Gods and integrate the energies of the 7 classical planets. This is a wonderful, magical, symbolism, the language of the soul. We need to become re-enchanted with the Universe. It is a totally magical place and we ourselves are magical beings. Some people asked how to work with the planets? It really doesn’t have to be more than intention, consciously connecting within yourself to the planetary energies. Have a dialogue with the planets, ask them questions. State your intentions as mantras and prayers.
Some people asked how to work with the planets? It really doesn’t have to be more than intention, consciously connecting within yourself to the planetary energies. I do like to do ritual and ceremonies, so I would set up an altar, call in the four directions and elementals. I would make offerings to the planets and call in the as above, so below, so within and meditate with the planets. Have a dialogue with Mercury and Venus, ask them questions. State your intentions as mantras and prayers.

Aug 28 is a wonderful day of enhanced communications and LOVE as MERCURY conjuncts VENUS in Virgo @ 11:32 pm PDT/ Aug. 29th @ 2:32 am EDT/ 6:32 am GMT @ the 29th most critical degree of VIRGO.
THINK LIKE A GODDESS. VIRGO is the largest and most ancient of signs. She is the earth mother herself. She also loves budgets, health, organization and practicality.
If you have something romantic to say -SAY IT NOW! It’s critical that you declare your love as Venus is the Goddess of Love. Declare your love and service to the EARTH; to the Divine Virgin Goddess within everyone. Most notably love your Higher self, but not the ego self.
Mercury,moving at a snail’s pace, is about to go RETROGRADE AUGUST 30 at that “Last chance saloon” degree. Venus enters one of her home signs, LIBRA, where she is the most social, charming, artistic and flirty AUG 29 @ 7:06 pm PDT/ 10:06 pm EDT/ Aug 30 2:06 am GMT.
Mercury is so strong right now. BE VERY conscious of everything you think and say. For many Virgo’s and Gemini’s especially, this can be a very tense time. See my article about September primer https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/triple-virgo-organization-day-
Under a sensitive nurturing emotional Homey CANCER MOON the energies are easy except for a Lunar opposition to PLUTO and a square to Uranus in ARIES late at night which may make you restless and sleepless. Three sextiles to JUPITER VENUS and MERCURY and a trine from the Moon to CHIRON makes for easy emotional relating.
We are also feeling the pressure of the upcoming eclipses September 1st in Virgo and September 16 in PISCES which I will write about soon in depth and make a video. Many of you are feeling grumpy, and irritable from the Mars/ Saturn conjunction in SAGITTARIUS further exacerbated by the conjunctions in Virgo squaring the Galactic Center. Although this is a HUGE BLESSINGS in disguise . Be very very open to parts of yourself which you thought you had healed years or even lifetimes ago suddenly coming up and exploding in your face front and center. With some dedicated prayers and focus these ancient wounds can be healed in incredibly accelerated fashion now as VIRGO is the sign of health and healing.
CHIRON the shamanic, wounded healer is in PISCES opposite to VENUS + MERCURY and JUPITER square to the Galactic Centre at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS which is further midwiving us in our rebirths, assisting all of us to fully feel our wounds to heal them. VULNERABILITY is the greatest STRENGTH. Someone on FB told an incredible story about this which really inspired me, so I know this to be true. It feels like a breaking open of the seals spoken of in REVELATIONS. It symbolizes the 7 chakras opening. Esoterically there are more than 7 chakras but start with getting those open.
SAGITTARIUS’ symbol is the RAINBOW, symbolizing the RAINBOW BRIDGE between Heaven and EARTH. Some call this Ascension. You will know it when you feel it. Be aware of symbols of iridescence, like dragonfly’s wings and rainbows appearing in your life. Semi-close your eyes and look at things that way, it changes your perception.
Mercury is our brains, our means of communication and thinking. As HERMES he was the great teacher in Ancient Egypt. Meditating by walking in nature is recommended. Listen to your gut instincts. Pay attention to what you consume on all levels. Virgo is the sign of the Harvest. You are what you eat. If you are eating, junk food, fast food, microwaved food, processed food, red meat, artificial sweeteners, canned pop, processed anything, most supermarket foods, your chances of becoming more conscious are small.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. Let those bad habits go. You don’t have to be a vegetarian necessarily, but eat simple, healthy, holistic, and organic foods as much as possible. Prepare meals yourself, throw out the microwave,. Your body will thank you, your health and thinking will improve radically.
MERCURY + VENUS is tuning us into love, simple, humble, serving your loved ones, parents, children and your work as well.
MERCURY VENUS IN VIRGO is very critical. SPEAK ONLY LOVE.
If you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say it. This is extremely important as VIRGO is the sign of the critic, the discerning, trouble shooter who is a flash at spotting imperfections and flaws. We need to be fully aware that self- criticism is criticizing the GOD/Goddess Self. We are that. Would you have the chutzpah to criticize God? It’s an old Astrology joke that only a Sagittarius would do that. I totally resonate with this with my Virgo south Node. I had an epiphany in a Health Food store on Aug 26 about criticizing myself = criticizing God.
Mercury-Venus in VIRGO rules work, do you love your work? If not put your thinking cap on while Mercury is Retro till Sept 21/22 and draw out a detailed plan to change it.
Use these times and the power of your mind, Mercury, The MAGICIAN in the TAROT #1 Arcana. Use Venus’ gifts of LOVE and BEAUTY sacred connection, desire, peace. She is The EMPRESS #3 in the Tarot. We are consciousness and we are love on this earth. That is all you have to remember and be.
