Retrograding through liminal space

Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 1.10.24 PM


✨ Venus is at the end of her retrograde journey. Today & tomorrow she’s coming to a final stop before moving forward again.

This part of the retrograde cycle is challenging. Find that ‘here nor there’ liminal space amongst the mass amount of tension that can be likened to an arrow being pulled back in a bow before release.

Find your stillness amongst any chaos or challenging situations. Be wide eyed & open to the messages that Venus is offering about your direction forward. Take stock of all you’ve learnt in this Rx cycle.

Our pain & vulnerability is on the table. Commit to working through it & with it, not against it. To be responsible for our freedom means so many things. Leaving old patterns behind, in which direction do you want to be released?

The Moon’s in #leo, loverz & #venus is still retrograde…edging toward the cuddle puddle with #chiron in #pisces at the end of it all.


β€’ Venus has been gently/not so gently pushing us to take a look at what we value, who we share our precious life resources with & where we place ourselves amongst it all.


β€’β€’β€’ How are you faring?β€’β€’β€’


✨ As #saturn is turning #retrograde too, we’re being called to solidify the changes we know we need to implement, to have our lives reflect the ways in which we value ourselves & everything we interact with. Living an authentic life means being responsible for your freedom. Being responsible for your freedom can mean paying rent on time while you’re living your dream, putting yourself first where you’ve developed patterns of dependence.


β€’ However it is for you, be brave & step into ✨your own light✨. Come out from any shadows of your past & step up to the plate of living your fullest, truest, most sincere expression of yourself.


β€’β€’β€’ What are you waiting for? β€’β€’β€’

Venus Retrograde 2017

Venusian #queenhetzy ponders her #venusretrograde experience…all this #aries energy has reminded her of what a good idea it is to just #chillout & appreciate the good things in life…like #lounging & falling asleep in your food bowl. 😻


β€’ Today & tomorrow #venus is back in the first degree of Aries, which is the first degree of the #zodiac.

β€’ What has the #venusretrograde2017 been about for you? What has all this Aries energy initiated? What has come up for review that needs to be put in the fire of renewal?

The Underworld

Screen Shot 2017-03-25 at 9.17.45 PM


Today we’re at the midpoint of this #venusretrograde journey. We’re in the heart of the #underworld . We’re in front of the mirror looking at our #shadow in the thick of our own shit; both personal & collective.
#venusinaries can be an uncomfortable energy. Where we usually know of harmony & ease we can find volatility & defensiveness. Where we know of pleasure & the good things in life, we find the need to assert boundaries & fight for what we love. πŸ’˜
The Underworld is not a pretty place, & the things that come up in this part of the cycle sprout straight from there. What we try to bury & cover up comes into full bloom. Collectively, what we’ve tried to sweep under the rug is coming out to haunt us. ⚰️

The Underworld is governed by #hades In today’s context, he’s a man with a lot of power who takes what he wants without consultation. The (edited) story goes that he abducts #persephone because he wants her, & because he can, & manipulates her into not being able to fully leave the Underworld. Her mother is distraught, obvs, & her father kinda let this happen & only intervenes when the situation starts to impinge on his own power. 😠 Sound familiar? 😑

It’s no coincidence that the plight of women of colour going missing at an alarming rate right now is coming to our attention. Collectively we have to face our own contribution to this story. Collectively we’re all responsible for their redemption.
This part of the cycle is dark. It’s uncomfortable & the feelz are heavy. The #moon is in #pisces wedged between the South node & #neptune in case you’d been trying to avoid all those feelz under the surface. πŸ‹

What have you lost in yourself, what has been taken from you that you need to fight to redeem? β€’β™ˆοΈβ€’
#aries wants us to come out fighting the perpetrators of injustice & to put up our shields to protect those who need it. πŸ€Ίβš”οΈπŸ›‘

Virgo Full Moon

Virgo Moon is FULL today at 7.54am PST. Earth signs need to physically manifest…& Virgo can get stuck on a loop with thoughts.

This #fullmoon contains a hard conversation between Mercury & Saturn. What has come up during this #piscesseason that needs definition? ✨

prioritise ~ write lists ~ get your thoughts out of your head into physical reality ~ walk it out.

Virgo understands ritual likeno other sign. What do you do as a daily ritual for yourself?
