business & bizness

holding-hands-HD-WallpapersCardinal squares and opposition energies between (Capricorn) borders and (Cancer) families erupt again.  I was done for the night, but it boggles my mind that as human beings we are still dealing with marriage inequality.

Admittedly, I have Capricorn ASC and Libra MC, so equal rights of any and all kinds is a no-brainer for me – ? but really ? – globally we are still hashing over who can get legally married, share assets and start a family ?  It is after all their business, their love, their marriage and their assets.

Ali Choudhry and Dr. Matthew Hynd run the risk of not only being separated, but Ali runs the risk of being deported to Pakistan, a country he is unfamiliar with (Ali grew up in the US), he does not speak the language or have contacts there and being openly gay means he is subject to imprisonment or death.

Australian immigration does not view their long-standing 4-year relationship valid though they married in a civil union in March of 2012 under a Queensland state law which was then repealed by the incoming Liberal-National Coalition Queensland Government three months later.  A review of the partnership rejection/visa application was denied.

Australia is Sagittarius (Jupiter rules), Taurus (Venus rules).
Venus and Jupiter energies are retrograde aka: review, reorient, revision.

Venus (marriage) is retrograde in Capricorn the sign of parameters and borders.
Jupiter (law) is retrograde in Cancer the sign of family and home.
Jupiter Rx opposes Capricorn energies of Pluto, Sun, Mercury and Venus Rx signaling a need to revise parameters between family and public matters via compromise, cooperation.
Squares to Aries and Libra is active change (Mars/Uranus) leading us into a future of equal rights. 
Humans globally juggling for compromise and cooperation re: family equality.


peace & love


Honestly, shit like this blows. my. mind.
How this cruelty is found acceptable on any level is beyond me.
Finding this sicko trend stylish is far more than my Virgo brain can fathom.

Capricorn (restriction) Sun (oxygen) while Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune (spiritual intelligence) and Chiron (deep wound) in Pisces.  Signaling a rant re: small animals (Virgo) and my feelings (Moon) about their cruel treatment in the name of some dumbass fashion (Venus Rx) trend.

Cardinal square above us prompts action via others and a driving need to change, force growth in yourself.
Aries & Libra axis : self vs. relationships
Cancer & Capricorn : nurturing vs. using

Internal tension rests upon philosophies of nurturing, actions powered up to find balance (with a heavy dose of pass-agg possible) via complete transformation of old structures into new ways of thinking, adapting, SEEing.

Hey, I am on my Sag soapbox, as usual, I know – I don’t think any of you, my readers abuse animals.   I am simply freaked out and asking you to share so we can stop this cruelty.  I am keenly aware that animals have intelligence, feelings, and are deserving of kindness and respect – as well as the right to live.  Red List
Hands up – ! – who loves Sonya the Pet Psychic from Animal Planet ?  I would get up early to watch it before work.  Trust me, this is unheard of – I am not a morning girl.

I have hundreds of stories, but will give you only two.
1 My late gecko, Buzz was used to getting large crickets.  One day the cricket truck didn’t arrive, I had to get smaller crickets to tide him over a bit.  When I tossed them in, he peered down at them . . . slowly turned his head to look me right in the eyes –  wtf  ?! these are no see-ums – ya gotta be kidding me !  When Buzz was dying, my girl cat sat in vigil with him all day – in a spot she hadn’t rested before, or ever after that day.
2 The first time my new cat walked past a door with skins hanging from it, he looked up, saw them and froze – paw dangling in midair – gobsmacked with apprehension. Oh shit, I’m in for it.  I grabbed him and explained they were given, I did not kill them, he was safe.  All was then well, he understood me. 
I have hundreds of stories similar to these.

The way out from these tense oppositions and squares is in Virgo Moon moving to trine Pluto in Capricorn (sharing feelings about what the world really needs to change) as well as Jupiter Rx in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio (philosophy of ethical power over and with and towards all earthkind.)

These aspects in tandem means we WORK to MAKE it HAPPEN.

Sun into Capricorn
Venus Rx 29 Capricorn

Venus Direct 13 Capricorn

Venus retrograde is a prime time to look over finances, career goals, ambitions and accomplishments with an eye towards streamlining and improvement. 
How are you using your materials to build firm foundations ?

Action plans will be tweaked, partnerships balanced, attitudes will change altitudes, all in order to become more efficient, streamlined.  
No fuss, no frills.
Built to Last.
Venus retrograde in Capricorn cuts to the difficult chase straightaway in order to patiently start re-building from the ground up.

 Venus Capricorn is practical – set finances and faulty relationships into order, cut the fat, get serious.   Who holds your reins, you or an overlord ?  

Right the balance.      Be true to yourself.  Be kind to your body.

photo 11Quickie read for what we (globally) need to be aware of with this retrograde.

III – The Great Mother: Venus in Capricorn opposes/compromises with mother energy from Cancer across the wheel.  
How do you mother and nurture ?  Are you putting yourself in the nurturing equation as well ?  What do others demand of you,  are they restricting your emotional freedom ?
What is your relationship with Gaia ?  Are you good to her, treat her water well..?

Spirit: XI: Creative Power: Sun enters Capricorn for this transit, leading two benefics to navel gaze on our past rootsespecially re: love, $$, career goals, peace of mind.

Are we wisely using what we have to create our lives in harmony ?  
Venus retrograde will lead us to reflect, reason and revise.

Start at your knees (Capricorn rules), bend and let the universe work with you for greatest results.  Venus attracts, while in retrograde – she attracts the old past so we can sift through it for what we can still USE.

In Peace

Kindred Kind

1 Intent: Clarity for highest insight, best direction to delve inward, navel gaze, seek balance
(Venus rules navels)
2 Spirit (crux of sitch) card

1 Find your comrades, your connections, those you can depend on.  Who does your heart belong to in friendship and in love ?  Who do you choose to compliment and do they compliment you also ? Are you allies across time – through tough times as well as good times ?   Are you compatible, are you kindred . . . kind ?

Venus Rx will answer these questions and more.

2 Heat, growth, realisation of what and who and why you partner UP with those you do.

*note: low number on spirit card, weaker; first card drawn is strongest, higher number

I thought I would explain my absence of late.
Neptuner stationing Rx activating my Mars has brought movie nights.  I usually drop out and tune in when Moon enters Sag (sign on my 12th), but Neptune Rx has demanded action flicks.  Loved John Carter, btw. plenty of sci-fi scruff and sword to keep me satisfied.  Here’s the rest of the pressure cooker astro for me: Saturn on natal Mercury MC, Mars on natal Pluto Uranus Sun, Neptune Rx square natal Mars and opp Leo stuff, Uranus on Saturn Rx chart ruler with Pluto Rx in square moving to exact.  Pluto Rx re-applying to ASC.  The outers are kickin my ass this year !

Dwelling in the dark of late.  My Jupiter Juice has run dry.  Have been browsing the doom and gloom – with glee, I might add.  There are some pretty cool cemeteries in London, I gather.  Misery loves company type reading, plenty of Floyd – esp. Pompeii on the right in Neptunes if you want to wallow in the Saytrnpit. F
eeling a bit buried with Jupiter at 29 Toro, feeling and thinking Cancer Mercury all over – the memories of men.  (Jupiter trines Virgo 9 Sun, Saturn on Merc) I am plenty fed up with the ‘men are making me mental merry-go-round’, let me tell you – and Merc just only got here (to my Cancer 7th).  Not a fan of touchy feely pass – agg Cancer Mercury at the mo. not at allHere’s hoping Jupes into Gemini on Monday greases my brain gears for fun, cause I am way t.f. ovah all this earth.  Way t.f ovah all this centaur concentration.
What’s up for you…?

Anyone with late degrees 20+ Libra are getting the Saturn Rx drill down.  Late Capricorn and Cancer are working the square, Aries the opposition. Hang tough…

Saturn stations direct June 25th at 22 degrees Libra, hallelujah !

Neptune going retro is dissolving everything in early Pisces and late Aquarius. Early Sagittarius and late Scorpio / early Gemini late Taurus is dissolving by square; early Virgo late Leo feel the opposition.
Neptune stations direct November 11th at just over 0 degrees Pisces. 
I will be rejoicing this I am quite sure, Neptune Rx opposes the stuff Neptune squares in my natal.
May as well dig in for the Pluto Uranus square – it will be a long haul for a few years.


The daily buzz  ~>

Moon leaves the square with Jupiter, enters Pisces at 2: 22pm CST, USA void for about an hour prior, conjunct Neptune Rx, then conjuncts Chiron all while in trine to Mercury.
Call your Mother or a galpal – do mooney type stuff, are you earth Moon – do earth then, if you are air, do air moon.  I am earth and will be mowing the grass, gardening, walking and talking to the earth, etc..   Gemini Sun and Venus Rx trine Saturn Rx in Libra.  Thoughts dwell on positive solutions to fixing Venus matters. Sun quintiles Uranus.  Our brains get some much needed positive genius- type radical infusions. 

Gemini Venus, Pisces Neptune, Libra Saturn, Capricorn Pluto are all retrograde.  All in renovation mode.

Re – working, re – thinking, re – envisioning, re – inventing  love, money, the way we think about what we value –  how we process everything we think and how we  ultimately build everything on the material earth plane is on the drafting table – soOo get your erasers out.

Thoughts become deeds.
How aware of this I am, being Saturnian Rx in Aries 3rd already then having Saturn Rx up my Merc MC craw.  Mars in persnickity guilt-ridden Virgo for like, evah, apparently.
Staying positive has taken a ton of effort, and obviously I am not quite there yet, lol.
Fair to say I am working on it – but let’s face it, life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows for all of us.  My next post will be positively weird and awesomely groovy, promise !

Uranus, the higher octave of Mercury knows what to do, it is supercharged with Mars at the mo.  Hot to trot and burn some fuel.  What house is Aries plowing through in your natal now ?
Mercury in Cancer feels .sheesh. feels AND thinks the tension and someone / thing is up your nostril from Capricorn house, forcing a compromise.
Your solution…?… Pluto Rx is trine Mars in Virgo, so re-assess, re-evaluate.
Then re-apply force where needed.

Feel free to vent your crap transits here.
Fair game.
*grin*  xo

Peace out~

Occultation of Venus (extensive post here)
15 degrees of Gemini June 5, 2012 8:15pm CST, USA

Venus stations retrograde Tuesday bringing matters of the heart, creative and monetary pursuits into focus internally.  Retrogrades are passive, inward directed energy and while in Gemini : social aspirations, creative thinking, harmonious communications will be churning in our heads. 

We will likely see lots of people talking to themselves trying to figure out what directions to take to increase peace of mind and hone the mental operations as well as the messages given and received.

Venus is Cardinal (Libra) and fixed (Taurus); Gemini mutable, so Venus will likely take the lead to smooth things over while Gemini house does the dexterity dance.  Gemini is observant, so pay attention to what is NOT being said.

This is not a time to be taking Venus by the reins and spurring her into the fray, instead it is a time of reconsideration and diplomacy regarding visionary ideas involving compromise with others (Sagittarius opposite), as well as confronting personal obstacles involving work and service for both yourself and others on a cosmic scale.

That’s the quickie global  rundown….
Where Venus Rx will be manifesting in your chart  is near 23 degrees in the houses of Gemini, (conjunction or fusion) Sagittarius by opposition (compromise with others) and the houses of Virgo and Pisces by square (personal obstacles).

Late degree Leos and Aries are up for opportunities (sextile) via Venus Rx – check near 23 degrees and planets less than as the Rx cycle gets underway, planets here will need to actively creatively express  themselves in order to reap the benefits of the sextile.

Sun Jupiter conjunction offers the same sextile opportunities to late degree Cancers and Pisces – near 23-24 degrees.

Here’s the brief rundown of houses:

1, 5, 9 are the personal houses
1 – physical body, style of competition 5 – love and expression 9 – spirit in human experience

2, 6, 10 are the material houses
2 – worldly possessions 6 – health, routine 10 – social status, prestige

3, 7, 11 are the social houses
3 – siblings 7 – partner of the heart 11 – friends

4, 8, 12 are the houses of emotions & endings
4 – womb and the tomb 8 – death & rebirth 12 – cosmic connections
There are great energies in play, grand earth trine involving Mercury in Taurus, Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn.  Hands on material matters, achievement and hard work will be paying off for the earthy peeps – check near 8-10 degrees for any planets in earth they are getting recognition and the climb is easier.

Venus in Gemini, Saturn Rx in Libra (both air) and Neptune in Pisces (water) are also in a grand trine giving thoughts regarding relationships and dealings with partners a more inward spiritual seeking bent as Neptune is direct (3 degrees) while Venus prepares to station Rx at 23 degrees (Saturn Rx at 24).

I’ll be back with a homespun Venus Rx tarot spread / reading soon…

Sorry so late with this one…I worked my transit. Mars square Mars frustration out by digging up 4 waist high trash barrels full of garden weeds in prep for planting food. Plus, trying to sleep early (midnight is early for me) and I found Doom (Karl Urban) in my basement while I was doing laundry, and nothing like an action adventure flick to help me relax…

nite all, or good morning depending on where you are….

Since I mentioned it, A BIG THANK YOU to all my world-wide readers who faithfully show up to read, comment or otherwise support my astro endeavor.
Thank you kindly !
 I have a mega Sagittarian vibe, and love having readers from countries I have never had the pleasure of seeing or traveling to !  So please allow me to express my gratitude and welcome you ~ all my friends ~ from all parts of the globe !

…may blessings and happiness be with you, each and every one…


funhouse of mirrors

Chunli style by Artgerm

So here’s the deal, I have this  thing  about polarities.  I have always felt it, and life seems to toss odd situations at me right and left so I can learn the yin yang of life, the duality and the separateness that lies within the cosmic sea of All One.

My astro that supports this :
Mercury (dual in gender) at MC in Libra (balance between opposites)
Uranus (polarities) elevated, conjunct Sun
Chart ruler slow ass Saturn Rx in 3rd (Gemini rules) in gung ho to go Aries
Venus conjunct Jupiter in Look At Me Leo square (hides behind) giant Neptuner

You get the drift … an astrologer once told me I had an ‘easy’ chart.  Number one, that pissed me off, basically negated my entire life struggle in 5 words or less.
Number two, she didn’t look very closely in my opinion.

I have one visible opposition, but many by nature, simply by placement of being.

Do you see them in your chart ?
The invisible difficulties.

Gemini is Mercury ruled.
Mercury rules sight.
Mercury is the trickster.
Dual.  Polarities.

Mercury (along with Uranus) rules the vibrations that govern sight.
The optic lens reverses the image for our brain. (right side up, upside down)

I love the rad illustration at the top ~
look at her Gemini hands (left and right)
and all the air flowing around her.

Gemini is air or intellect.
Fast, flirty and fun.
Flighty and fickle.
Bores easily, likes to keep the energy moving around.
The idea swap meet.
Switch hitting.

Getting the polarites here ?

Gemini rules breath.
(right and left)
Venus in Gemini needs some breathing exercises for vocalists, click !

Mercury rules the brain ~ are you left or right brain ?
(Mars rules left hemisphere , Mercury right hemisphere)

Venus is in Gemini at the moment.
Venus rules  Love.  Art.  Money.

Gemini is versatile, clever, curious and nervous (rules the nervous system).

My Venus is on fire in water, fixed.
Venus cruising through Gemini is a whole other ballgame.
Mutable air is the intellectual presto – change-o. flip-flop, kinda weird, but breezy and bubbly. I like.

How is your Venus reacting..?
What is her natural habitat in your chart ?
How does your Venus think  in Gemini ?

I am right brained by nature.
Mercury elevated in Venus ruled Libra.
Venus expanded by Jupiter in creative Leo.
Neptune most highly aspected.  Artistic.
I see pictures, learn by seeing.
(Plus Sun Virgo stellium on 9th Sag house I SEE the big picture, but Virgo ANALYZES details – polarities again, see ?)

So here at GMA, this time I switch hit & Venus gets the Virgo shake-down science style.
Practical.  Logical.  What’s love got to do with it ?

Venus in Gemini is an opportunity to hop the fence and live the other side awhile.
Ya know, try it out, bust outta the box a bit.

In my case do story problems or something rational.
Yea right 4 people get off 6 people get on 5 miles later and how far till Albuquerque  always wanted to say ‘why’d ya get off the damn bus to begin with / take a fuqin taxi already !  Love numerology – hate math.  ta da !  polarites !

You get where I am going with this polarities business right…?
Venus is going to flip – flop !

Venus stations retrograde

Retrograde motion means Venusian energies get shifted inward.

We will reflect (again polarities !) revise, and revision how we create love art money.
How we attract (Venus attracts) these things and  what is  our law of attraction ?

Do we really even want what we think we want ?

Appearances can be deceiving.
Mercury ruled Gemini house is the fun house of mirrors  with Venus in residence.

Go to your Taurus house, Libra house, Gemini house.
This will tell you where your thoughts will be dwelling during Venus retrograde.
…more on this later…

Thought precedes action.
Going visual again…
Jedi hand wave, “you want to go home and re-think your life.”

When Venus retrogrades – brainstorm !
::: try drawing on the right side of the brain, use color.
::: strategize, list by numbers , pros / cons, be rational.

Blessed be ~
The Divenusian.
