Jupiter in Scorpio Part 2: Healing is the first stage of manifesting

Ambi Sitham

werepeatwhatwedontrepair.jpg

Hello lovely ones!

I hope you found the Soulstrology Jupiter in Scorpio Cosmic Coaching questions useful and that you took the time to answer them fully and to review the last Jupiter in Scorpio transit and understand how it impacted upon your life.

Next up is Part 2 where we lay the foundations for the next thirteen months of the current Jupiter in Scorpio transit.

Jupiter is known as the great gift giver and the cosmic benefic.

As a result people expect miracles from a Jupiter transit and are sometimes confused when they did not manifest as much as they expected.

The reason for this is multi-fold.

Firstly, Jupiter doesn't simply deliver gifts.

He brings opportunities (often miracle making ones) but we need to take action in order to obtain the best outcome from them and receive our cosmic gifts.

Secondly, Jupiter expands the status quo.

In other words whatever is the current state of affairs in the Scorpio ruled parts of our charts (or the natural zodiac themes ruled by Scorpio which relate to each of us) is what will be expanded upon.

As a result we need to make sure that whatever Jupiter is about to expand, is what we want expanding!

Lastly, Jupiter is actually a great healer.

Often the 'miracle' of first stage of his transit is the healing process where healing alchemy takes place transforming any darkness into light and goodness which later in the transit the cosmic giant goes onto expand.

So Part 2 of the Soulstrology Jupiter in Scorpio Cosmic coaching is asking ourselves some tough questions about the Scorpio ruled parts of each of our charts and the natural zodiac themes ruled by Scorpio (joint finances, debts, loans, intimacy, sex, transformation and death).

Here are the questions I want you to ask yourself this week using the Soulstrology Jupiter in Scorpio zodiac guide to direct the questions to the areas of life being activated in your chart.

1) What wounds do I have in relation to the areas of life being highlighted by this transit? (remember, read for your sun sign, rising sign and consider the natural zodiac themes).

2) What healing needs to take place in relation to the areas of life being highlighted by this transit and how can I do this?

3) What do I need to allow to die which is clearly decaying? It can be an external tangible 'thing' or something more internal - a way of thinking, behaving, psychological matter.

4) What can be transformed and soulfully reborn?

5) What areas would I like to become more soulfully empowered in?

 

SOULSTROLOGY JUPITER IN SCORPIO ZODIAC GUIDE

Aries: Joint finances of all sorts, sex, intimacy, transformation and death

Taurus: Partnerships of all kinds, platonic, professional and romantic

Gemini: Daily routine, work and lifestyle. Health - mind, body and soul

Cancer: Love/romance, fun, self-expression, creativity, hobbies, children - yours or others

Leo: Domestic/family life and home - who, what and wear means home to you

Virgo: Your mind, communication, your voice in all formats including related projects, neighbors, siblings, your local community

Libra: Your personal finances and income, your possessions, your values - who and what you value and your self-esteem

Scorpio: Your identity, personal appearance and autonomy, how others view you

Sagittarius: Healing, the hidden, your subconscious mind, work you do in private, secrets

Capricorn: Friendships, groups you belong to and causes you support - your soul tribe. Your hopes, wishes and dreams for the future

Aquarius: Career, ambition, success and status. Ultimately your soul's legacy

Pisces: Spirituality, religion, higher learning, foreign places and people, legal matters, publishing

Venus in Libra October 15 - November 7 2017: Love to love

Ambi Sitham

loveloves.jpg

Hello lovely ones and happy weekend!

I hope you've all been doing your Jupiter in Scorpio coaching homework Part 1 and are getting some clarity as Part 2 is coming next week!

Onwards to other cosmic news as this weekend, on Sunday October 14 Venus - planet of love, beauty, socializing and abundance, moves into one of her own signs, Libra where she will stay until November 7 2017.

Look at where you have Libra ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Libra as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

If you haven't already, check out the new chart calculator on the home page of the site to calculate yours (or someone else's!) chart to see where this transit is taking place in your life.

As Venus rules Libra (along with Taurus) she is very much at home in Libra and her energies are expressed easily and fluidly.

Therefore, her transit of the Libra ruled part of your chart should be harmonious and productive for matters of the heart and wallet.

It's been approximately two years since Venus last visited this part of your chart and will another two years before she returns so it is advisable to make the most of this powerful transit!

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Libra transit.

DO'S

  • Harmonious relations Venus in Libra encourages us to show our love by bringing harmony to all of our relationships.  Whether romantic, platonic or professional, aim to infuse harmonious energies into all your close relationships.
  • Wave the peace flag This placement and transit is also one of peace. So if you've had conflict in any close relationship this is a great time for resolution, and where appropriate, to kiss and make up!
  • Partnering up. Libra is the sign of the scales and the concept that it takes two to tango. It's a great time to think about formalizing partnerships of all kinds and if you are dating to consider officially becoming a couple.
  • Purchase items of beauty. This placement encourages us to spend on items which bring more beauty into our lives. Whether that is spending on make-up, skin care, or clothes, or art, shop or purchase items which bring more beauty into your life.

DON'TS

  • Be co-dependent Venus in Libra places so much emphasis on the other that it can lead to co-dependency. Remember that co-dependency is not limited to romantic relationships. Strive for balancing the scales and making sure all close relations have healthy boundaries.
  • Be superficial. This placement can have us being a little superficial in an attempt to keep things harmonious and easy and refuse to see what lies beneath the surface. Unfortunately glossing things over can have us regretting things at a later date. Watch for where you may be superficial in your relations with others, ultimately at your own expense and indeed the expense of the relationship.
  • Be too beauty obsessed. This placement places such a strong value on beauty that just as above it can have us being a little too superficial. Remember that beauty is only skin deep and that what lies beneath will shine through the outer surface and is as important, if not more so!
  • Be a spendthrift This placement can lend to us liking to splash the cash on any pretty item that catches our eye. Try and curb any overspending and see if you can enjoy visual beauty in another way - going to an art show, gallery, museum, being in nature etc

Libra/Libra risings you can enjoy what Soulstrology calls the Venus filter, with the cosmic goddess gracing your sun sign/rising sign, giving you that irresistible glow! Enjoy it!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart, and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Libra

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!

 

SOULSTROLOGY VENUS IN LIBRA GUIDE

  • Aries - partnerships and close relationships of all sorts - romantic, platonic and professional.
  • Taurus - your daily routine/lifestyle and health - mind/body/soul
  • Gemini - love and romance, children - yours and/or others, fun, self-expression and creativity

Jupiter in Scorpio October 2017 - November 2018 Part 1: Success with intimacy, sex and money will come from soulful transformation

Ambi Sitham

transformation.jpg

Tomorrow, October 10 2017, Jupiter, the great cosmic benefic who brings luck, miracles and expansion, moves into the watery sign of Scorpio where he will stay until November 18 2018.

I will be writing a series of Soulstrology cosmic coaching blogs to assist you all (regardless of your sign) to make the most of this transit and harnessing both the light of Jupiter and Scorpio/Pluto to make positive shifts in your lives over the next thirteen months.

In the natural zodiac Scorpio is the ruler of the eighth house.

This house governs shared resources (often referred to as joint finances, so shared finances that come through inheritances, loans, mortgages, investors, trusts,  joint projects etc), sex and intimacy, death, rebirth and transformation.

Soulstrology says that the eighth house (a little like the twelfth house) is one of the most intense houses in our charts and lives, given it covers such emotive areas of life, like money, intimacy and sex.

Regardless of our sign Soulstrology says that the natural zodiac themes of life in each of our lives will be impacted by Jupiter in Scorpio.

Of course, in each of our unique charts, this transit will take place in specific life areas, based on both our sun sign and our rising sign, so you can use the chart calculator on my site to work out where this transit is falling in your unique natal chart and later this week I will provide a guide for the Jupiter in Scorpio transit for each sign (read for both your Sun and rising sign).

As Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, over the next thirteen months, as part of Jupiter bringing you blessings in the Scorpio ruled part of your life, he will also bring deep transformation and rebirth which often comes from 'death' and endings - all themes of Pluto.

As Jupiter takes just over a year to transit a different sign of the zodiac it will take him another twelve years to transit the part of your chart he is going to grace over the next year.

So you must think of this next thirteen months as a time in which you are planting seeds of success which will reap rewards not only over the next thirteen months, but will benefit from over the next twelve years.

Touching on this twelve year theme, as the first part of this Soulstrology cosmic coaching I want you to all look back to October 2005 - November 2006.

Whilst many of us would have been considered fully fledged adults and navigating adulting, others would still have been at school at this time and been juggling adolescence.

Regardless of your age and where you were at in life, look back and think about the themes that you experienced from October 2005 through to November 2006, looking specifically at the Scorpio ruled parts of your unique chart.

Then I want you to take some time to journal, recalling memories from that time, big events that occurred - 'good' and 'bad' and the 'ugly' and ask yourself and dig deep and answer honestly (all Scorpio energies) the following questions.

1) Where did I experience loss, 'death' and endings?

2) What, where and how did I transform?

3) Was there an area of life in which I was reborn, or experienced a rebirth as such?

4) Did I (and if so in what areas of life and with whom) experience any power struggles?    Remember that sometimes our biggest power struggle is with ourselves!

5) Where and how did I experience success and 'power' of sorts?

6) What seeds were planted during October 2005 - November 2006 which I can see allowed for evolution and transformation which unfolded over the last twelve years?

As part of preparing for the Jupiter in Scorpio transit it is important for us to look back and conduct a thorough review of the last transit as best we can.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Soulstrology Jupiter in Scorpio series!

Love,

Full Moon Soulstrology Soundbath meditation

Ambi Sitham

Happy Monday everyone!

It's an intense time in our world and my heart is heavy with the news of so much senseless violence and tragedy.

To add to this we have an intense Full Moon coming up this Thursday October 5th.

As many of you know I perform Soulstrology Soundbaths where I play a soundbath with planetary gongs reflecting specific astrological energies.

I have decided to record a series of curated Soulstrology soundbaths which are tailored at assisting with aligning with specific planetary energies.

My goal is to provide you lovely members of this Soulstrology community with monthly Soulstrology Soundbaths which you can listen to as a meditation and will help you align further with the cosmos each month.

I advise lying down and listening with headphones for maximum effect.

Here is the first Full Moon Soulstrology Soundbath.

I hope you enjoy.

And I hope that each of us turning our wounds into wisdom and healing ourselves in turn helps heal our world, and injects some much needed good energy into our earthly existence.

Love,

Breakdowns and breakthroughs: September 28 2017: Jupiter in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries, the finale!

Ambi Sitham

Word to the wise!

Word to the wise!

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

Tomorrow, September 28, there is the final act of a powerful aspect between Jupiter (abundance, expansion, miracles) in Libra (relationships) and Uranus (change, revolution) in Aries (the individual, identity, autonomy).

This aspect is an opposition, which Soulstrology explains is a tense aspect with a stand off as such between two areas of our lives.

This aspect creates an 'either or' scenario in each of our lives, where something significant shifts.

However, it isn't always particularly pleasant or easy, as an opposition forces an outcome and sometimes that outcome is for something in our lives to fall apart, but often it is so something better can fall into place.

Think breaking down to break through.

This Jupiter in Libra/ Uranus in Aries opposition first took place just after Christmas last year on December 26 2016.

It took place once again on March 2nd 2017 and the final opposition is tomorrow, Thursday September 28 2017.

Look back as to what was happening in your life around these times and in particular in the areas of life outlined in the Soulstrology Zodiac guide below.

Think of this final act as the finale and think breaking free, liberation and miracles.

Of course, exactly how it plays out depends on other transits your unique chart is experiencing and your soul's unique journey, but ultimately, know that any breakdown will bring a breakthrough and that any clouds will have a silver lining.

For each of us regardless of our sign the theme of relationships will come up.

Our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with others.

But this transit will also be highlighting two unique areas of our charts and therefore our lives.

Soulstrology zodiac guide to this transit for each sign is below.

Make sure to read for your Sun and Rising sign if you know it.

 

SOULSTROLOGY ZODIAC GUIDE

 

Aries: You, your identity, autonomy (Uranus) and your close relationships and partnerships of all sorts (Jupiter)

Taurus: Healing, psychological matters, what you keep hidden or secret, work you do behind the scenes/secret projects (Uranus) and your daily lifestyle, routine, health - mind/body and soul (Jupiter)

Gemini: Friendships, groups you belong to/causes you support - your tribe - your hopes wishes and dreams for the future (Uranus) and your love life, dating, fun and romance, self-expression/creativity and children - yours or others or children you want (Jupiter)

Cancer: Your career, goals, success, status, ultimately your soul's legacy (Uranus) and home (who, what and where is home to you) family life, domestic you (Jupiter)

Leo: Spirituality/religion, higher learning, travel, foreign places and people, legal matters, publishing (Uranus) and your mind, communication, your voice in all formats (including related projects) and neighbors, your local community and siblings (Jupiter) 

Virgo: Joint finances and projects, merging, sex and transformation (Uranus) and your personal finances, income, possessions, values and self-esteem (Jupiter)

Libra: Close relationships and partnerships of all types (Uranus) and you, your identity, autonomy (Jupiter)

Autumn Equinox 2017 and Libra season: Letting go and finding balance

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and Happy Autumn Equinox!

In the Northern hemisphere we officially change seasons today, September 22, as Summer finally comes to an end and Autumn starts.

Astrologically the Autumn Equinox coincides with the start of Libra season as the Sun moves into Libra in the zodiac.

For each of this transit will take place in a different part of our chart with the cosmos highlighting a different part of our lives and asking us to focus on these areas over the next lunation.

As many of you will know the Soulstrology theme of the recent Virgo New Moon was creating order from chaos, and despite Virgo season now being over, the theme continues through to the Libra New Moon on October 19.

Now, at the Autumn Equinox, as the Sun moves into Libra, we are not only asked to continue creating order in our daily lives, but also to find balance.

The zodiac symbol for Libra is that of scales, representing balance, fairness and justice.

Soulstrology says we must each look at our lives to see where we can bring more balance, peace, harmony and equality.

For each of us, regardless of our sign, we must specifically look at these themes with regards to relationships, and of course honing in on the Libra ruled areas of our lives in each of our unique natal charts (there is a Soulstrology zodiac guide to Libra season at the end of this blog).

These are the questions that Soulstrology recommends us asking of ourselves at this time.

1) Where do I feel out of balance in my life, in which life areas and in which relationships?

2) Where am I lacking peace? In which areas, or relationships?

3) How can I bring more balance into these areas of life and how can I create a more equal exchange of energy into these relationships?

4) How can I create more peace and harmony in these relationships and make them fairer on both parties?

5) What is decaying in my life which I need to let go of? Can be people, situations, thought patterns, behaviors.

Look back to the Spring Equinox (March 20) and what was happening in your life at that time.

Think back over the last six months and what has come to fruition, completion and closure and think about the seeds you planted this week at the Virgo New Moon and what you would like to come to fruition by the Spring Equinox in March 2018.

The Autumn Equinox and Libra season can help us in bringing so much more balance and harmony into our lives but we need to do our part in balancing the scales.

Soulstrology guide to Libra season for each sign is below. Read for both your Sun and rising sign.

SOULSTROLOGY ZODIAC GUIDE TO LIBRA SEASON

Aries: Close one to one relationships and partnerships of all kinds, platonic, romantic and professional.

Taurus: Daily routine/lifestyle/work, health - mind, body and soul

Gemini: Love, romance/dating, self-expression, creativity, fun/hobbies, children (yours, others or ones you want to have)

Cancer: Home, family and domestic life. Who, what and where means home to you

Leo: Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats (including related projects), neighbors, siblings, your local community, short trips.

Virgo: Your personal finances, income and possessions, your values and self-esteem

Libra: Your identity, personal appearance and how others view you.

Scorpio: Healing, psychological matters, what you keep secret and/or hidden, work you do behind the scenes, endings and closure

Sagittarius: Friendships, groups you belong to and causes you support - your soul tribe. Your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.

Capricorn: Your career, ambition, success and status. Ultimately your soul's legacy.

Aquarius: Spirituality/religion, higher education, foreign places, people, travel, legal matters and publishing.

Pisces: Joint finances and projects, sex, merging and transformation.

 

Venus in Virgo September 21 - October 14: Virtuous Love

Ambi Sitham

Oh Virtuous Virgo love!

Oh Virtuous Virgo love!

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

I hope the New Moon treated you well and you are busy manifesting and transmuting any chaos into order in true Virgo style!

Speaking of Virgo, tomorrow, September 21 Venus - planet of love, beauty, socializing and abundance - moves into earthy Virgo where she will stay until October 14.

Look at where you have Virgo ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Virgo as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

If you haven't already, check out the new chart calculator on the home page of the site to calculate yours (or someone else's!) chart to see where this transit is taking place in your life.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Virgo transit.

DO'S

  • Low key love. Venus in Virgo is somewhat shy and modest about their love (in contrast to the recent Venus in Leo transit). This placement encourages us to show and receive love in a more low key manner and to know that doesn't make the love we give or receive of less significance, or value.
  • Love is service. This placement displays love through service, by being helpful to their loved ones. Not for them is the big flashy gestures, but rather the little acts of service, which when you add them up equate to a whole heap of love. Think about how you can serve your loved ones better on a day to day basis during this transit.
  • Love is commitment. This earthy, grounded placement asks us to back up our feelings of amour with commitment. It enables us to be more grounded and connecting to the bigger picture of a romantic relationship, which is commitment. Give, and aim to receive, commitment during this transit.
  • Practical purchases. This placement is not into flashy, frivolous spending. Rather, it spends carefully, on practical items that are of service to themselves and others.

DON'TS

  • Be a nag or nitpicker. Venus in Virgo has an extremely high attention for detail and hold themselves, and others, to very high standards. This can result in unnecessary criticism and nitpicking. Be mindful!
  • Overanalyze or be a worry wart. This placement has exceptional analytical skills however the shadow is that it can result in us unnecessarily over analyzing our lives, our love lives, our finances. Be wary of this.
  • Be overly modest. This placement struggles with being the center of attention (the opposite of Venus in Leo) and as a result tends to hide behind others. During this transit we need to be mindful of being overly humble and modest which is in itself an expression of ego!
  • Forget to treat yo'self! This placement can tend to have us caring more for others than we do ourselves. Remember that self-love is the foundation of manifesting anything of significance in your life and that it is as important to take care of yourself as it is others.

Venus/Venus risings you can enjoy what Soulstrology calls the Venus filter, with the cosmic goddess gracing your sun sign/rising sign, giving you that irresistible glow! Enjoy it!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart, and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Virgo.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!

 

SOULSTROLOGY VENUS IN VIRGO GUIDE

  • Aries - your daily routine/lifestyle and health - mind/body/soul
  • Taurus - love and romance, children - yours and/or others, fun, self-expression and creativity
  • Gemini- who what and where you consider home, family, your childhood, domestic life
  • Cancer - your mind, communication, your voice in all formats - including related projects, siblings, neighbors, short trips
  • Leo- your income, your possessions, your personal finances, your values (who and what you value in life) and your self-esteem
  • Virgo - your identity, the very essence of who you are, how people see you/your appearance
  • Libra - healing and hibernation, secrets, your subconscious mind, secret projects, what you keep hidden (including the hidden you) endings and completion
  • Scorpio - your tribe, friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support, your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Sagittarius - success, career, ambition, your status, your public legacy
  • Capricorn - spirituality/religion/higher learning, legal matters, travel, foreign places and people
  • Aquarius - joint projects and finances, merging, sex and transformation that comes through merging
  • Pisces - partnerships and close relationships of all sorts - romantic, platonic and professional.

Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Libra: Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go

Ambi Sitham

Word

Word

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!

We have just under a month of Jupiter in Libra left (boo) and less than three months of Saturn in Sagittarius (yay, but also holy sh*t because Saturn in Capricorn is going to be INTENSE..but don't worry you will get the full lowdown here and hopefully that will help you navigate it).

But back to these transits which are coming to a close, what does this all mean for each of us?

Jupiter has been gracing the Libra ruled part of each of our (natal and solar) charts since September last year.

Jupiter is known as the healer, giver of gifts and miracle worker.

He is, alongside Venus, the great cosmic benefic.

People wait years for certain Jupiter transits in order to make big shifts in their lives and as he takes a year to move through each sign of the zodiac, it will be another 12 years (2028 - 2029) before we experience another Jupiter transit in the particular area of our charts that the cosmic giant has been gracing since September 2016.

During this transit your unique natal chart may have been activated as Jupiter's transit pinged (for want of a better expression!) certain parts of your chart.

Also, you would have been experiencing other significant transits (aside from Jupiter) which also may have impacted on how you perceive the last year.

Regardless, Jupiter would have worked some magic.

And even if you don't see the fruits yet, the seeds would have been planted and will flower in time to come....this transit impacts the next twelve years of the Libra ruled areas of your chart!

And don't worry you don't need to wait twelve years to enjoy the blossoming!

I set out below some questions which I encourage you all to ask yourselves about the Libra ruled area of your chart which can help you eek out the goodness of this last month of this transit.

I also set out a Soulstrology guide for each sign to remind you of the areas ruled by Libra.

Then we move onto Saturn in Sagittarius after that!

 

JUPITER IN LIBRA COSMIC COACHING

 

  1. What growth, expansion and miracles (from the large to the little, they are all miracles!) have you experienced in the Libra ruled part of your chart since September 2016?
  2. What disappointments have you experienced in the Libra ruled part of your chart since September 2016?
  3. What have you learned about these areas of life and how do you feel you might limit yourself and how can you stop?
  4. How can you shift your consciousness for the next month to one of gratitude and expansiveness for any luck you have experienced (Jupiter is all about optimism) and humility (disappointments stop us from over expanding before we are ready - the shadow of Jupiter) in order to experience externally what is a reflection of your internal consciousness? (again, apply this to the Libra ruled areas of life in your chart)
  5. What one goal can you set yourself (or re-set because it is still Mercury retrograde shadow so all things RE are still on point!) for the next month in the Libra ruled area of your life before this transit comes to an end? 

 

SOULSTROLOGY ZODIAC GUIDE TO JUPITER IN LIBRA

*please read for both your SUN and RISING sign*

Aries: Partnerships of all kinds, professional, platonic and romantic

Taurus: Daily lifestyle and routine, health - mind/body/soul

Gemini: Love, dating, romance, fun, self-expression/creativity

Now onward to Saturn in Sagittarius - a transit which started in December 2014, had a brief respite between June and September 2015 when Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio and ends on December 20 2017.

Gosh, as a Sagittarius sun sign I have found this transit incredibly challenging yet also incredibly rewarding.

And that IS the essence of Saturn.

Saturn is the stern cosmic life coach headmaster caricature who zooms in on an area of our lives and decides we haven't set the right foundations or done our homework properly and then proceeds to kick our arses (as we like to say in England but you may prefer to substitute with butts!)

The Sagittarius ruled area of your life in your chart (and particularly if like me you have planets in Sagittarius) will have been subjected to trials and tribulations since the end of 2014.

But it's like an endurance race of sorts where you are tested beyond your wildest imagination, can feel a little depressed (the shadow of Saturn) but ultimately your stamina will be rewarded.

Because here is the thing with Saturn. He tests us during the transit but he rewards us when he leaves.

Rather like a headteacher who scolds us when we are late, scruffy or haven't done our homework properly -but then gives us a gold star when we get our act together, so too, Saturn will reward us.

But the extent of the reward is dependent upon the effort put in.

With just under three months of this transit left we still have time to do our cosmic homework and obtain stern Saturn's approval so that we can gain his reward before the end of this year!

I set out questions below which I encourage you to ask yourself and answer honestly and then do what is needed so you can receive your cosmic dues come the end of the year.

I also set out the Soulstrology Zodiac guide for Saturn in Sagittarius.

Make sure to read for your Sun and Rising sign.

Mars in Virgo - September 5 - October 22 2017: Practical action is manifesting magic

Ambi Sitham

MarsinVirgo.jpg

Today, September 5th, the same day that Mercury stations direct after his recent retrograde and the day of the Pisces Full Moon, Mars - planet of courage, ambition, action and leadership - the cosmic manifestor - moves into Virgo. 

Mars is well placed in Virgo and this is a fantastic transit for taking practical steps which results in manifesting magic!

The fiery energy of the red planet goes well with the earthy, grounded energy of Virgo. 

Virgo and Virgo risings, the next six weeks is a VERY powerful time for you as you have the cosmic manifestor and mover and shaker in your sign for the first time in two years.

Plus it's Virgo season with a powerful New Moon in Virgo coming up in a couple of weeks.

For those of you with your natal Mars in Virgo, you are experiencing your Mars return so it's also a super potent cosmic window for you as you sow the seeds for success over the next two years of your life.

See my earlier Ask Ambi Q+A (Mars Return) to understand what the return of Mars means for you, regardless of your Mars sign.

Whatever our zodiac sign, each of us has the ability to harness the power of this six week transit to take practical action in the Virgo ruled parts of our charts/lives which can help us manifest magic!

Although Mars in Virgo can be very positive and powerful for manifesting, as always there is a duality to all signs and transits.

Below are the Soulstrology Do's and Don'ts of this transit.

DO's

  • Be humble. Mars in Virgo is about achieving through humble small steps. Humility comes from seeing what you want and realizing what you need to do to get to where you want to go!
  • Be practical.  Whatever sign you are adopt Virgo's attention to detail. This transit can help us be super practical and practical action = manifesting magic!
  • Be efficient. In line with being humble and practical, Virgo is efficient. Efficiency is the product of humility and practicality. Efficiency also means we can manifest with ease.
  • Be thoughtful and giving in love. Mars rules sex and Mars in Virgo is a transit that can result in the kind of considered love making that brings a different kind of bond between you and your lover. It's a grounded mixture of earth and fire.  

DON'TS

  • Criticize. Whether it is yourself or another. Mars in Virgo can have us noticing every little detail and becoming a nit picker. Find the balance between attention to detail and being a niggly nit picker, with yourself or others!
  • Be anxious. The shadow of Mars is aggression, conflict and war. The shadow of Virgo is anxiety and the need to control. The combination can be explosive, in a bad way!
  • Forget to have fun.  With all the focus on achievement over this transit don't fall into the Virgo shadow of being all service/work and no fun.
  • Be afraid of letting go. Virgo likes order and as per the don't above, Mars in Virgo can make us afraid of the lack of order and afraid to experiment (whether socially or in the bedroom) Make sure you don't fall into this slippery shadow.

SOULSTROLOGY GUIDE

Below is a Soulstrology guide for each sign (read for both your sun and rising sign) identifying the life areas that will be experiencing this Mars in Virgo transit.

  • Aries: your daily lifestyle and routine, work and 'service' to others, your health - mind/body/soul
  • Taurus: Your love life - romance/dating, fun, hobbies, self-expresion, creativity and children - whether yours or others, or your inner child.
  • Gemini: Home - who, what and where means home to you, family, your childhood, the private/domestic you and your home life.
  • Cancer: Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats including related projects, neighbors, siblings, short trips
  • Leo: Your personal income and finances, your possessions, your values (who and what you value in life) and self-esteem
  • Virgo: Your identity, appearance, how others view you, autonomy and leadership.
  • Libra: Healing, isolation, your subconscious mind/psychological issues, self-sabotage and hidden enemies, work you do in private/secret projects and closure/endings
  • Scorpio: your tribe - friends, groups you belong to and causes you support, your soul tribe and your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Sagittarius: career, ambition, goals, success and status, ultimately your soul's legacy.
  • Capricorn: spirituality/religion/higher learning, teaching, publishing, foreign people and places and legal matters/justice
  • Aquarius: joint finances (debts, loans, inheritances, investments, taxes) and projects, sex, merging and transformation.
  • Pisces: close partnerships of all kinds, platonic, professional and romantic (covering friendships, mentors, bosses, business partnerships and marriage/serious relationships)

 

 

Venus in Leo August 27th - September 20th 2017: Love louder

Ambi Sitham

All the vibes....

All the vibes....

Hello lovely ones and happy Sunday

Today, Venus - planet of love, beauty, socializing and abundance - moves into fiery Leo where she will stay until September 21st.

Look at where you have Leo ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Leo as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

If you haven't already, check out the new chart calculator on the home page of the site to calculate yours (or someone else's!) chart to see where this transit is taking place in your life.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Leo transit.

DO'S

  • Love louder. Venus in Leo cannot hide their love. Like a King/Queen showing affection for their subjects, this placement loves loudly! Take a note out of Venus in Leo's book and love loudly, whether platonically or romantically, to ones you know or the world at large, just make sure your love is heard and felt.
  • Let yourself be flattered/complimented. Whether by your other half/the object of your amour, or a stranger/passerby, allow yourself to bask in compliments and flattery just like Venus in Leo, who thrives off this.
  • Light that fire baby. After an emotional Venus in watery Cancer, this Leo transit is about bringing fiery passion to your love life. So whether you're in a long term relationship or dating or just on the look out, connect to your inner fire and passion and infuse this into your romantic life.
  • Enjoy the limelight. Whether that means making some of your dates/romantic activities a little more dramatic and/or just allowing yourself to shine in your personal/professional life, bask in the limelight just like the regal Venus in Leo!

DON'TS

  • Be insecure. Venus in Leo needs so much attention that if they don't get it in sufficient amounts they can become very insecure and start growling. Watch for being overly needy of attention and resulting insecurity.
  • Be too flashy. This transit can make us harness a little too much Leo drama and this can be reflected in our spending! Be generous, with yourself and others, but be mindful of being flashy. Remember, 'love doesn't cost a thing' (or it shouldn't!)
  • Be boastful. This placement loves to tell everyone (particularly the object of their desire) how in demand they are and how fabulous they are! No-one likes a show off. Find balance between reveling in attention and being boastful about it...
  • Be childish. This placement can bring out our inner child; in a bad way. Watch out for your inner five year old throwing a tantrum! Not so Venus in Leo regal!

Leo/Leo risings you can enjoy what Soulstrology calls the Venus filter, with the cosmic goddess gracing your sun sign/rising sign, giving you that irresistible glow.

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Leo.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!

  • Aries - love and romance, children - yours and/or others, fun, self-expression and creativity
  • Taurus- who what and where you consider home, family, your childhood, domestic life

Soulstrology Guide to Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse 2017

Ambi Sitham

Quote from the screenplay for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by Eric Roth, screenwriter

Quote from the screenplay for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by Eric Roth, screenwriter

Hello lovely ones and HAPPY nearly New Moon Solar Eclipse!

In an earlier post on the Membership section we talked about the double date with destiny of Leo season and the two Leo New Moons, the second of which is a total (yikes!) Solar Eclipse which will take place on Monday August 21 2017 at 10.21am PST.

As I mentioned last week in the Soulstrology Guide to this Mercury retrograde at this second Leo New Moon, this very powerful Solar Eclipse, the themes of Virgo (both in the natural zodiac and in our unique natal and solar charts) are at play.

So, here is the little Soulstrology Guide for this Leo Solar Eclipse which takes into consideration both the Virgo and Leo themes which are in the cosmic spotlight.

As always, please read for both your Sun and Rising sign.

Also, remember that as this is a Solar Eclipse we want to be thinking about setting intentions not only for the next lunar cycle/month but also for the next six months and the next eclipse season!

So, having read the Soulstrology Leo Solar Eclipse blog please make two manifesting lists.

One for this next lunar month and one to come to fruition by next February 2018.

Happy Manifesting and New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Aries: Think carefully about your daily routine and lifestyle, your health -mind/body and soul, and how this impacts upon how you have fun, socialize and express yourself, how you love/date/enjoy romance, and any children in your life - whether yours, others, or children you want to have. How can you find balance between both these areas of life, assisting you with manifesting in the latter?

Taurus: Focus on how you have fun, your hobbies, your love life - who and how you love, how you express yourself and any children in your life - whether yours, others or children you want to have. How do these areas of life impact upon goals you may have to do with private, domestic you? With who, what and where you consider home and family? Think about jointly manifesting in BOTH these areas of life with a focus on how the former plays into the latter.

Gemini: Your mind, communication, your voice in all formats (including related projects) is in the cosmic spotlight...but how does your early childhood, early education and family life play into how you are, or not, manifesting in these areas in the solar spotlight? Think carefully about bringing harmony into both these areas of life, allowing you to manifest more smoothly in the former.

Cancer: How does your mind and the communication you have with yourself (arguably the most important conversation of all) impact your self-esteem, your values and as a result how you earn your money? Think about projects you may have that are essentially do with your 'voice' (in all formats) which are directly linked to your personal finances and how you make money.

Leo: What and how can you heal parts of your psyche, perhaps letting go of secret self sabotage so that you can be seen as your true self and truly autonomous and manifest as your highest self? What have you been working on behind the scenes, or what part of yourself do you keep hidden which you now need to share with the world at large so everyone can experience the true you? It's a total reset for you Leo and your time in the cosmos!

Virgo: With the eclipse solar spotlight on healing and isolation and laying low you need to look at how working quietly behind the scenes, resting and healing is manifesting and will ultimately allow you to be more autonomous, independent and will empower you, allowing you to both be your best self and for others to view you as your true self.

Libra: The solar spotlight is on your tribe and your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future but the cosmos is also asking you to delve deep into your psyche and look at how you your own wounds may be preventing you from enjoying your true tribe and preventing your dreams from manifesting. Focus on healing in order to receive.

Scorpio: Look at your career goals and what you consider 'success' to be. How are these aligned with your most cherished goals for the future? A review of your personal goals for the future will assist you in manifesting in your chosen career and enjoying soulful success all round which truly satisfies you.  Align both your personal/private and public/career goals.

Sagittarius: With the solar spotlight on spirituality, religion, learning, teaching, travel andpublishing you are asked to consider how these areas play into your career goals, status and success. Understand the connection between the two and find a way of merging themes from the former into goals regarding the latter.

Capricorn: Joint projects and finances, merging and the transformation which comes from merging are in the solar spotlight. You are also being asked to consider the link between these areas of life and higher learning, your unique spirituality, foreign places and people, publishing and travel. Find the connection which allows you to manifest in both areas.

Aquarius: Your closest relationships and partnerships of all types are in the solar spotlight along with how you merge and double up with others, whether in a personal arrangement such as marriage/joining finances or a professional such as a business partnership. Aim for harmonious manifestation and transformation in both these areas of life.

Pisces: In the solar spotlight is your daily work, lifestyle and health - mind/body/soul. You are asked to focus on how close partnerships of all kinds could benefit these areas of life. Whether it's pairing up with a partner at work, or getting help from a professional to benefit your mind, body and soul, think of how you can find the connection and harmony between these two areas of life.

 

Soulstrology guide to Mercury Retrograde August 12th - September 5th 2017

Ambi Sitham

Do everything RE in Mercury retrograde....

Do everything RE in Mercury retrograde....

Hello lovely ones and I hope you are riding out the cosmic currents of August! 

Just to add a little more cosmic action to this month Mercury, planet ruling our mind, communication, travel and more...goes officially retrograde in Virgo tomorrow Saturday 12th August 2017.

Now, as many of you probably know by now, Soulstrology says that the mercury retrograde shadow period is very significant and this particular Mercury retrograde shadow started on July 24th at 29 degrees of Leo, which incidentally is the same degree as the August 21 solar eclipse...which is no cosmic coincidence!

Even though the official mercury retrograde starts at 11 degrees Virgo Soulstrology says that we must look at where we have from 29 degrees of Leo to 11 degrees of Virgo in our unique natal charts.

The emphasis is on the Virgo ruled part of our charts, and specifically between 1 - 11 degrees of Virgo, but the Leo part of our charts is also under cosmic review, particularly with the Leo solar eclipse in less than ten days.

Use the free chart calculator on my site to see where you have Virgo ruling your chart (and specifically 1 - 11 degrees) but also see where you have 29 degrees of Leo as the life areas ruled by that part of your chart are also up for review.

I will write more about the Leo element of this Mercury retrograde and the significance to the upcoming solar eclipse and give you all a detailed guide to both soon (next weekend!)

But for now, here is the Soulstrology guide to this Mercury Retrograde in Virgo.

Remember these are the life areas which may be impacted by this Mercury retrograde and which are up for review and resetting. Do everything RE with regards to these areas of life.

And to REfresh your mind on the mindful DO's of Mercury Retrograde check out my Huffington Post Mercury retrograde blog which contains timeless advice!

Read for both your sun and rising sign (if you know the latter).

Aries: - Your daily work, routine and lifestyle. Health - mind/body/soul

Taurus: - Love, dating, romance, creativity, self-expression, fun, hobbies, children - yours, ones you want to have, or others.

Gemini: - Domestic life, the domestic you. Family. Home - who, what and where you consider home.

Cancer: - Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats and related projects. Short trips, your siblings, neighbors and your local community

Leo: - Your income, personal finances and possessions. Your values - who and what you value in life, and your self-esteem.

Virgo: - Your identity, appearance, how others view you. Your personal autonomy.

Libra: - Healing, psychological matters, isolation, the hidden - work you do behind the scenes, secret projects.

Scorpio: - Friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support, your soul tribe. Your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.

Sagittarius: - Your career, status, ambition - ultimately your soul's legacy

Capricorn: - Spirituality, religion, higher learning, teaching, foreign places and people, travel, publishing and legal matters

Aquarius: - Joint finances (including debts, inheritances, loans, mortgages, investments) and joint projects, sex, merging and transformation

Pisces: - Partnerships and close relationships of all kinds - platonic, professional and romantic.

Hello lovely ones and happy August!

Today, Venus - planet of love, beauty, socializing and abundance - moves into watery emotional Cancer where she will stay until August 26th then moving into Leo.

Look at where you have Cancer ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Cancer as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

If you haven't already, check out the new chart calculator on the home page of the site to calculate yours (or someone else's!) chart to see where this transit is taking place in your life.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Cancer transit.

DO'S

  • Love is a verb. Venus in Cancer knows that love is a verb and this sign will go the extra mile to show their love for their loved ones. Use this transit to give yourself a heavy dose of self-love as well as to show your loved ones how much you care about them. Take pro-active steps to love yourself and others.
  • Take a trip down memory lane. Whether it is with your romantic love or platonic loved ones - family/friends, Venus in Cancer is all about sentimentality and honoring the past. Use the past to inject some extra sentimental love in all your relationships
  • Traditional romance. This transit is about bringing good old fashioned romance back into your love life. Whether you've been together for a long time or are are newly dating make sure to engage in some old school romance, think candle lit dinners, roses, picnics etc
  • Be committed. Venus in Cancer is all about commitment and showing love through devotion. How can you commit to loving yourself better or committing to loving others (all relationships) in your life better showing them your devotion? This transit is also good for recommitting to each other.

DON'TS

  • Be possessive. Venus in Cancer can make us a like a crab with the object of our affections in our pincers and holding on a little too tight...Be wary of being possessive over your loved one (s).
  • Be moody. This transit can make us passive aggressive and moody if we feel in some way slighted by our lover. Rather than talk about it directly we can internalize our feelings resulting in us being overly moody and not actually expressing our issue, which just makes matters worse!
  • Over do it. This transit can make us do a little too much for the object of our affections. We can be so overwhelmed by love that we give a little too much (yes there is such a thing!) and then resent it if we feel that our loved ones are not reciprocating.
  • Be stingy. Venus in Cancer can make us frugal and frugality is to be admired but not when we are stingy with ourselves or others. Strike the balance!

Cancer and Cancer risings this next month is your time to enjoy what Soulstrology likes to call the Venus filter! It gives a great glow!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Cancer.

Mars in Leo: July 22 - September 5 2017: Courageous, heart centered action

Ambi Sitham

On June 22nd, the day before the first of two Leo New Moons, Mars the planet of courage, ambition, action and leadership moved into Leo.

Mars is well placed in Leo, they are much more compatible bedfellows than Mars and Cancer.

The fiery energy of the red planet goes well with the fiery energy of Leo. 

Leo and Leo risings, the next six weeks is a VERY powerful time for you.

You not only have the zodiac manifestor in your sign but you also have two New Moons (one of which is a solar eclipse) in your signs. It's all about YOU, Leo/Leo risings!

For those of you with your natal Mars in Leo, you are experiencing your Mars return so it's also a super potent cosmic window for you as you sow the seeds for success over the next two years of your life.

See my earlier Ask Ambi Q+A (Mars Return) to understand what the return of Mars means for you, regardless of your Mars sign.

Whatever our zodiac sign, each of us has the ability to harness the power of this six week transit to take heart centered, courageous action in the Leo ruled parts of our charts/lives, to express our true, highest selves. As this transit coincides with eclipse season it's a powerful time in the cosmos!

Although Mars in Leo can be very positive and powerful as always there is a duality to all signs and transits and with this one it's about too much energy or too much fire which can result in an explosion, or someone getting burnt (literally and figuratively).

We must be mindful to avoid the shadow of this transit and burning out or getting burnt!

Consciousness is key as is channeling the energies properly.

DO's

  • Listen to and follow your heart. If you really tune into your heart, you will tune into your higher self and what you need to do over this transit
  • Be courageous. Adopt the consciousness of courage. Courage doesn't come easily to everyone but remember that courage is a muscle which is strengthened by use. 
  • Be confident. The key themes and traits of both the planet Mars and Leo are confidence, autonomy and leadership. Be bold over this transit. Fortune favors the bold!
  • Enjoy life, love and romance. Leo rules fun, hobbies, love and romance. Mars rules sex. You get the picture! 

DON'TS

  • Let your ego get the better of you. The shadow of confidence is arrogance. The shadow of enjoying the limelight is being narcissistic and hogging the limelight. With both Mars and Leo being all about self-expression and leadership, we must be mindful to not take it too far. Our ego is not our amigo!
  • Be aggressive. The shadow of Mars is aggression, conflict and war. The shadow of Leo is to be over the top, in your face, and yes at times to be too much. Too much of anything can be abad thing. Don't let your enthusiasm or over excitement boil over...
  • Be impulsive.  Both Mars and Leo have an impulsive shadow. Remember what is done in haste is often regretted at leisure.
  • Overspend.  Leos are known for their generosity but this can sometimes be too much in theme with the over the top, impulsive shadow referred to above. Careful of burning through your money during this time.
  • Get burnt. Literally and figuratively. What's the downside of the sun? Sunburn. Sunstroke. Be careful of how much physical and energetic sun you expose yourself to. Burns and fire hazards are two things to watch out for during this transit. Also, remember Icarus who flew too close to the sun and melted? As above, too much of anything can be a bad thing!

SOULSTROLOGY GUIDE

Below is a Soulstrology guide for each sign (read for both your sun and rising sign) identifying the life areas that will be experiencing this Mars in Leo transit.

  • Aries: Your love life - romance/dating, fun, hobbies, self-expresion, creativity and children - whether yours or others, or your inner child.
  • Taurus: Home - who, what and where means home to you, family, your childhood, the private/domestic you and your home life.
  • Gemini: Your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats including related projects, neighbors, siblings, short trips
  • Cancer: Your personal income and finances, your possessions, your values (who and what you value in life) and self-esteem

Leo season: A (double!) date with destiny

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and I hope Cancer season is treating you well!

Next weekend the Sun will move into Leo for the first of two Leo New Moons, one of which will be a solar eclipse!

The Leo ruled parts of each of our charts (so any houses with Leo on the cusp, or any natal planets we have in Leo) are firmly under the cosmic spotlight over the next two lunar cycles.

Consider it a double date with destiny which will come to fruition over the next 18 months or so, through to January 2019.

I will be writing more on eclipse season towards the end of July so you can all be prepared but in the meantime I set out the below guide to Leo for each sign (read for your sun sign and your rising sign) so you can start thinking about these life areas and what you wish to manifest in them at next weekend's New Moon.

The Soulstrology New Moon blog will be up on Friday 21st July so you can read it carefully then and apply the Soulstrology consciousness to the Leo ruled parts of your chart.

We each have a date with destiny.....let's make it a great one!

Soulstrology Zodiac guide to Full Moon in Capricorn July 8th 2017

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely members and happy nearly Full Moon in Capricorn!

Please read the Soulstrology Full Moon blog on the main site and then ask yourselves the questions set out there in relation to the areas of life ruled by both your sun sign and your rising sign (if you know it).

Also look at the opposing houses to your sun and rising sign and the life areas ruled by those houses as they have also been impacted by the Pluto in Capricorn transit by virtue of Pluto opposing those life areas (a tough transit), plus they will be highlighted at this Full Moon as the Sun is shining in those houses.

I suggest making a burn and release list after fully answering the questions in the blog releasing all that does not serve you or that is decaying and needs to be allowed to 'die' to make space for a beautiful rebirth and/or a sweet new beginning.

Aries: Career, ambition, career, success, status, the public you, your legacy

Taurus: Travel, foreign places and people, publishing, legal matters, spirituality and higher learning

Gemini: Joint finances (debts, loans, investments, inheritances) joint projects, merging and transformation

Cancer: Partnerships and close one to one relationships of all kinds (romantic/marriage, platonic and professional)

Leo: Daily work and routine, health - mind, body and soul

Virgo: Love/romance/dating, self-expression, creativity, hobbies, fun, children - yours or others

Libra: Domestic life and the domestic, private you. Family and home, who, what and where you consider home and your family

Scorpio: Your mind, communication and your 'voice' in all formats including any related projects, your local community, neighbors, siblings and short trips

Sagittarius: Your personal finances and income, your possessions and your values (who and what you truly value in life) and your self-esteem

Capricorn: your identity and appearance, the essence of who you are, your higher self

Aquarius: healing, the hidden - secrets you keep from others, work you do behind the scenes, psychological matters and spirituality, isolation and seclusion

Pisces: friends and groups you belong to and/or causes you support, your soul tribe, your hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.

Wishing you all a healing, transformative and soulfully powerful Full Moon.

Love,

Ambi x

Venus in Gemini: July 6th - August 1st 2017: The mind is the way to the heart

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy Thursday!

Today, Thursday 6th July 2017, Venus planet of love, peace, harmony, beauty, abundance and socializing moves into mutable air sign Gemini where she will stay until August 1st.

Look at where you have Gemini ruling houses in your natal chart as well as any planets you have in Gemini as this will give you an idea of the areas of life which will be infused with Venusian energies.

As always, Soulstrology reminds us that there is shadow and light and duality to each planet and sign.

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Gemini transit.

 

DO

  • Engage in mental foreplay Venus in Gemini is all about communication and the mind. There's nothing sexier than a good conversation! Write a love letter. Express your feelings and seduce your lover with your words (your choice whether this is via old fashioned letters or online)
  • Arrange a date night where you actually TALK We've all seen those couples (and may have even been them at times) who eat an entire meal at a restaurant barely exchanging a word. Over this transit bring the art of conversation back into your love life/relationship.
  • Single? Make sure to mingle! Over this transit consider online dating (before Mercury shadow sets in) go out locally (Gemini in natural zodiac rules our 'hood) and keeping your options open by multi dating. If you are not in an exclusive relationship then keep your options open which leads me nicely onto...
  • Variety is the spice of life Venus in Gemini loves to socialize and craves variety. We can each harness this energy and infuse it into our social lives. Catch up with different friends/groups and aim for different activities.  Go on a spontaneous get away. This transit is perfect to escape on either a romantic weekend away or a fun trip with friends.
  • Find your creative voice Whether its a book, a blog, a podcast, or some other medium, find your voice and express it or re-start a project which relates to your creative voice.
  • Duality in your work/finances Think about how you can embrace different sides of your persona in your work and finances. Whether a side job to create another income stream or pursuing a passion project which could turn into your dream job, the key is duality.

 

DON'T

  • Be flaky. The shadow of Venus in Gemini's desire for variety is to flake. Whether in social arrangements or with dating be mindful of being flaky.
  • Be all about small talk This transit can lead to us being somewhat superficial in our communications. Small talk has its time and place but be mindful of superficiality.
  • Equate monogamy with monotony. Venus in Gemini has a strong desire for stimulation and excitement in relationships which sometimes can lead to flitting from one relationship to another in search of that mental stimulation. Monogamy can provide this!
  • Commit to more than you can do The downside of the gift of the gab can be failing to deliver. Be mindful that you can walk your talk.
  • Be foolish in your pursuit of intelligence Sometimes this transit can lead to us trying to study or do something because we think it is the 'right' thing to do or it automatically makes us intellectually superior which of course is untrue and soul defeating!
  • Try do to it all Trying to do or have it all is unrealistic and self-defeatist. Pursue duality and adventure but with mindful realism and boundaries.

 

Gemini and Gemini risings this next month is your time to enjoy what Soulstrology likes to call the Venus filter! It gives a great glow!

Whatever your sign, you will be enjoying this transit somewhere in your chart and therefore life.

Below is the Soulstrology guide for this transit for each sign indicating which areas of life will be experiencing this transit and the Venus filter.

Read for your sun and rising sign and don't forget to check which planets you have in Gemini.

Try and infuse these life areas with the light of Venus - think love, harmony, creativity, abundance!
