Mercury reaches greatest elongation at midnight EDT on October19th. The mercurial messenger and Trickster, the most intimate planet to the sun stands 25° East of the Sun. Mercury will soon turn Retrograde on October 31.
Venus is also now barely visible and Mercury and Venus are cheek to cheek.The Orionids meteor showers peak on the morning of the 22nd. If you are in Dark Sky place look up.
Planet Uranus which orbits at a 90-degree angle on October 27/28
Uranus reaches opposition to the SUN making it highly visibility tonight. It’s exact at 4 a.m. EDT on the 28th.
Pisces is the sign of musicians and all creative people. While Mercury is Retrograde in this sign we can investigate what the creative force is all about.
Here is an amazing Tone circle created by Jazz Genius John Coltrane which illustrated the theory behind his famous compositions. The interesting thing is the patterns trace out Venus’s pentagram formation which she makes in her 8-year cycle.
Venus is considered to be Exalted in Pisces and I can see why.

Venus turns direct April 15 @ 3:18 am PDT/ 6:18 am EDT/10:18 am GMT.
VENUS or a Woman with a Mirror by Titian, c. 1515
At 26+ degrees she is squaring SATURN in SAGITTARIUS at the Galactic Centre.
Love begins to move forward as does the flow of money.
The Omega Chandra symbol for 27 PISCES by John Sandbach is:
“Pisces 27. A spider searching its web. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Rochel (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)
Whatever we become entangled with by circumstances, must be something that we need, for everything is there for us to learn from. This degree knows that truth and so is very accepting of anything that comes its way – always trying to figure out the relationship of that thing to itself. Its magic is the ability to transform the seemingly random into the deeply meaningful.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A ritual sand painting.”
NAVAHO SAND PAINTING of the Whirling Rainbow
Here is the desire to bring all of one’s vision and aliveness into the moment, without having to worry about the future or what it holds. The sand painting reveals the underlying cosmic patterns of the universe. It shows us something, but because the grains of sand are not fixed, and will be thrown to the winds once the painting is completed, it reminds us that these cosmic patterns it reveals are actually within us – we are living them. Can we, like the spider of the Omega Symbol, search our mind to see if we have captured the meaning of them?
This degree carries the emphatic message that we need to align ourselves with the energies of the moment in the cosmic dance, and not worry about the future, for the present wholly and fully lived will give birth to the most beautiful of futures.
Pleiadian Symbol: A golden moon, newly arisen.
Azoth Symbol: A man, having fainted, returns with the memory of a dream.
Seed degree: Aquarius 24. A helicopter depositing a man on the top of the Great Pyramid. (Omega Symbol). Direct access to spiritual awareness allows us to see our desires and needs in a new way – allows us to understand what our karma has captured and drawn to us.
A large brown bear picking and eating apples. (Chandra Symbol). Seeking immediate and spontaneous nourishment we come into a realization of the ephemeral patterns of reality, and a greater harmony with them.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 30.By time traveling, a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). Seeking for something to nurture ourselves we probe deeply into our needs, which carries us to their roots in the past.
The completion of a large Persian rug. (Chandra Symbol). When attachment to set forms is given up, we find within ourselves the freedom to achieve closure where closure is needed and appropriate.”
Sagittarius MOON squares NEPTUNE in PISCES
We will be feeling optimistic, the truth will out, our dreams will take us to higher places.
Moon sextiles JUPITER in LIBRA
all very positive aspects. Jupiter rules both SAGITTARIUS and PISCES.
All good, KEEP THE FAITH.
Mars in TAURUS is sextile CHIRON in PISCES exact on the 16th
and Venus and MARS in sexy sextiles the same day too.
The is a lovely, lovely healing energy. Many past issues can be forgiven. This is a time of forgiveness on Easter Sunday, a symbol of death and rebirth. Mars in Taurus is in VENUS’s sign. He is bowing down to her needs. This is very sensuous and all about appreciating beauty everywhere. Mars in Taurus is practical and stubborn and just wants to enjoy al the beauty in the world to the fullest. He wants to get on with getting things done. This helps to keep us grounded.
Things have been very intense the last while with Sun-Uranus and all the cardinal crosses. Relax today and enjoy a feeling of wellbeing and balance.
The energy is more intense on the 16th but you deserve as we all do some universal support.

After I posted about the rare Six Goddess Merkaba forming. My fellow Priestess and teacher in California Le’ema Kathleen Graham who is a dancing snake yoga Priestess who I have known for over 25 years, messaged me on FB saying she was so inspired by this that we should make a video together. It was quite spontaneous. We discuss what each Goddess means, how to set up your ritual, and do a simple meditation. Please join in and discover what it is like to experience the power of invocation working with the Living Goddesses. They are NOT archetypes. They are calling you to merge your earthly body with their cosmic stellar essence of love.
Here is a giveaway ritual for the rare six Star Goddess Merkaba led by two elder Priestesses imparting their wisdom for this powerful portal forming Aug.13-14.
Please watch on YouTube and LIKE and share widely. DO THE RITUALS yourself for abundance, healing, and blessings for yourself, the earth and participate in anchoring the DIVINE FEMININE energies within you. We are all STAR GODDESSES. ” As above so below” And stay tuned for more juicy online rituals from us! Visit the Priestesses websites..
BLack Moon Lilith is squaring PLUTO January 24 right after the full moon on the 23rd in Leo.
Venus is almost stationary now, approaching her Retrograde phase July 25. Venus at zero degrees Virgo, is renewing Herself, she is returning to her pristine Virgin state in the sign of the Virgo the Virgin of course.
This symbolizes to me, that we have reached a new stage of evolution. Virgo, the 6th sign symbolizes the capacity to embody communications. Mercury rules the Mutable earth sign. Speech is related to power and to sex. Venus is female sex, whereas Mars is Masculine sexuality.
For me I see Venus’s Retrograde symbolizing a time for women to learn to love, honor, explore, respect and embody their power and their voices. It’s also about your self-worth. Venus is VALUE. How much do you really LOVE yourself?
Venus in Virgo is into order, details, learning, memory, perfection. Venus the Goddess is perfect after all.
The Vestal Virgins are symbolized by the asteroid Vesta. But I believe that Virgo was the Virgin meaning whole and complete inside of herself ,very ancient Goddess that these Virgins worshipped, she was more like Demeter/Ceres or Gaia.
Women need to learn to explore and enjoy and care for their bodies. Venus loves pleasure. As Virgo has a solitary side, being the Hermit in the Tarot, Venus in Virgo symbolizes learning to love and pleasure you self..
Venus’s Retrograde phase will see the Goddess of love and money return to reorganize, remind, retire, remodel, regenerate, refuse, relish, rewind, retry, relegate, review her assets and to relax in Leo, sign of passion, hi- DRAMA, heart, will, giving love, love affairs, children, and creative self-expression until September 6.
Venus’s number is 5. As your love life,
5 things to do when you love life falls apart over the next 40 day Retrobate period.
1. Make an alter to Venus, you can set this up in any space. This alter honors the Goddess and it should contain blue, gauzy sumptuous silky fabrics. Put out beautiful fresh flowers, luscious chocolates, silky cushions, beautiful jewellery and all manner of fine offerings to delight the Goddess. Use images of the Goddess Venus, this could be a woman who symbolizes everything beautiful sexy and romantic. Scarlet Johansenn or Marilyn Monroe or whoever you like. You need 5 candles, some incense, good-sized sheets of white paper and colored pencils.
2. Dress up so you feel like a Goddess or that you embody the Goddess.
Sit and meditate at the alter.Go into your heart and ask what does my heart really want in love? What do I value? How much do I feel I am worth? This isn’t about what you maybe want. Sit with this question. You may get very frustrated. Breathe through the panic untill you feel or sense and answer even if it s vague, call upon Venus to guide you..
3.With your non-dominant hand, take a colored pencil and allow your hand to move on the paper with your eyes partly closed. Let your hand flow, don’t try to direct anything. you may find your hand moving as if of its own accord. feel yourself being drawn. spend some time with this. Open your eyes and look at the images or colors. Try to see what Venus has revealed to you. You can do this over and over again. When you have a number of images look them over, then begin to write a story about them.
4. INVOKE THE GODDESS!
All pentagrams for positive magic start in the lower left and go up to the peak then downwards to the right then up and across diagonally to the left, then across to the right horizontally,then down to the left to join where you started.Draw this magical Venus symbol in the air. Prepare to surrender your ego to Venus.
5. Feel the Goddess Venus enter you. Really allow her essence to become one with you. ask to see through Venusian eyes. Imagine what this feels like. When you feel Venus’s spirit within you, go through then move through your images, get your answers. You will get clarity. This exercise is something you should dedicate yourself to for the 40 days you know that is a symbolic number while she is Retrograde,
Do it. I will do this too I will invoke Venus here by the ocean on July 25. I will make a LOVE POTION #9 as well.

The intensity of the energies is weighing on me even though on another level it seems light-ish. Feeling rather tired. It was a beautiful sunny hot day here with lots of ocean breezes. I am grateful to be in Venice California which really is paradise and pretty mellow.
I’m in a different type of space, you know how it is when you are staying in a friend’s home… Miss my dog Jasper, miss my garden growing so abundantly. Starting to feel like I am actually in California. Shifting realities always awes me. Do you feel that way? So many people move around so much these days.
California is a dream, and all about money, materialism and shopping which I am not into. Especially here in Venice. And it’s a carnival.
Moon is in Leo friday BUT it will feel rather convoluted and perhaps FREAKY.
Moon trines Uranus.
Be open for unexpected rushed to the gates of freedom.
Aspects are generally good saturday.
Energy shifting is in the works what with Venus entering VIRGO and Moon conjunct Jupiter in Leo and then Venus .
Things will be even more Virgo til TUESDAY as Moon enters VIRGO July 18.
a mix of emotional Cancer, loud overblown Leo and humbly on budget emotionally..
Fire and earth -two very distinct elements.
I’ll shoot a short card of the day video tomorrow and upload.
Let me know how you are feeling.

July 8 Very powerful positive Trine from sexy Mars in Cancer to Neptune in Pisces at 9+ degrees @ 3:42 pm PDT/6:42 pm EDT. Yes that’s the real Magic Mike in action.
Neptune is Venus’s Higher Octave, so this is where you make intentions and go after your soul mate, your higher spiritual dreams for the world and yourself. It’s a great day to make Tantric love, art, music, poetry, and meditate by and with water.
If you have any planets at 9 degrees Scorpio that makes a sexy Grand Trine.
Look at which houses 9 degrees Cancer Pisces fall in your natal chart to see where the sex action is happening in your Natal Chart.
Neptune rules debt. Mars trine it means there should be a breakthrough solution or breakdown in the Greek financial crisis. Neptune dissolves, water dissolves all hardness.
Venus and Mars Bathing painting by Giulio Romano 16th Century
this is the closest thing I could find
Mars also squares Vesta at 9 degrees Aries. Vesta is the Goddess of INVESTMENTS, so more emphasis on the economy. This aspect is another energetic to the Venus Vesta Saturn Grand Fire trine bringing that energy down into the emotional body. read link https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/06/06/vesta-venus-saturn-grand-trine-intentions/
Questions to ask are: What and where are you choosing to invest your Mars energy, passion,desire? Squares apply pressure. You will be feeling it.
If you have planets at 9 degrees of EARTH SIGNS TAURUS VIRGO CAPRICORN, that forms a 6 pointed sex star.
It’s a Merkaba what people think of as the Jewish Star is really a symbol of sacred sexual union.
Definitely do some rituals today. Bring down that energy.
