Cosmic Tides – New Venus Synodic Cycle

The overall theme of the current 584 day Synodic* Venus Cycle is Leo. Leo is all about radical self-love, not for what you do, but just for who you are, what you were born with, like being royal.  Since the fixed star Regulus (the regal Heart of the Lion) is also participating, so we know that the feminine principle is being encouraged to embrace being a Divine, Sovereign Queen!

Venus and Mars

This year we have the rare occurrence of having three conjunctions between Venus and Mars.  The masculine and the feminine joining to explore the mysteries of three signs, Aries, Leo and Virgo.

The first one happened on February 22nd in Aries“Lets get this started!”

The second conjunction was on August 4th in Leo – “Growl….!”

The third is on November 3rd in Virgo“Ready to take her throne and taking no B.S.!”

Note: Venus has spent an unusual amount of time in the sigh of Leo since she took a few steps into Virgo and then went retrograde back to get some more Leo purrs and growls.  She once again entered Virgo on October 9th.


Venus and Jupiter

This year Venus is also having three conjunctions with Jupiter, a rare boost!

The first was on July 1st in Leo“Purr…”

The second was on August 4th also in Leo“I am woman, hear me roar!”

On October 25th the third conjunction is in the sign of Virgo“I am ready to do my sacred work.”

Note: Venus has spent an unusual amount of time in the sigh of Leo since she took a few steps into Virgo and then went retrograde back to get some more Leo purrs and growls.  She once again entered Virgo on October 9th.

In Virgo Venus is encouraged to know and express her role as the Priestess in the New Energy.  Virgo is also sovereign since she is “virgin”, meaning whole and complete unto herself.

(I love the word “sovereign”.  It represents royalty as well as someone who lives by their own authority.)

On October 25th Venus and Jupiter are both in a comfortable trine aspect to Pluto. This is a great (and relatively smooth) time to clean out your “basement”, especially old stuff related the feminine energy.

Mars is still considered to be conjunct, just 4 degrees ahead of them.

Mars and Jupiter

There is a lot of astrological magic happening with Venus, but she is not the only player in this cosmic dance.  Mars is also exploring the signs with Venus and got a boost from (conjunct with) Jupiter (exact on October 17th), but the connection will continue through about the end of the month (Mars and Jupiter will still be within the 6 degrees of separation, the definition for the major aspects: conjunct, opposite, square and trine).

This says to me that you can’t have a strong, authentic feminine principle without a strong, authentic masculine principle.  Although the historic distortion of both of these energies has hurt both, the feminine has led the transformation since she was the most overtly oppressed and dis-empowered.

I am not only referring to men and women, the most important relationship is within, of our inner masculine and feminine.  As these two planets (representing the principles).

Free Webinar October 25th.  Let’s make the most of the cosmic “wind at our backs”.  (The supportive cosmic energy will be embedded into the audio, so the recording is equally powerful.)

In November Venus (first) and then Mars enter the sign of Libra.  With all the learning experiences and clearings behind them, they are ready for the Sacred Marriage!  This means we are being supported to unite our inner feminine and inner masculine.  More about this in a future article.  Make sure you have subscribed for my free newsletters so you don’t miss it!
