Good Monday to all!!! 🌈 Energetic Principles Podcast - Episode 23 is now live for your listening pleasure on Soundcloud & iTunes !!!
This week - October 1st - we are waning down in our lunar month as we experience a pull at our security strings with a last quarter Moon in Cancer. Mercury and Pluto also have a showdown in a cardinal square, further eliciting the winds of change. The big star of the week goes to our gal Venus who is slowing down for retrograde motion in the sign of the Scorpion; she stations on Oct 5th and will be on this journey until Nov 16th. Unless you have been living under a rock, you can most likely recognize how Venus is playing into a lot of what Jupiter in Scorpio has expanded and brought to the surface over the past year in regards to the feminine archetype - this period will give a much needed review in regards to societal values and our own understanding in relation to boundaries, equality, and our concept of self-worth. 💘
I’m so excited to welcome one of my personal mentors - professional astrologer, teacher, and lecturer, Kelly Surtees, for a discussion on “Venus RX: From Scorpion To Scales“ - where we chat about Venus stationing for retrograde motion on Oct 5th and the themes that will go along with this 40-day journey of reappraisal. Find out more about the nature of retrograde planets in transit, Venusian themes in general, and how the energies may play out as we retrograde through Scorpio and Libra. We also discuss the importance of the last time Venus retrograded through this territory 8 years prior, along with tips for using this time period - and the knowledge from the previous cycle - to help navigate this rare opportunity for review. Such an honor to chat with Kelly! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 🔮I also uploaded a video version (below) if you want to see us wax poetic in person and also get a glimpse at Venus' pentangle orbit! 🤗
