Venus in Scorpio September 10 2018 - a prelude to the retrograde

Ambi Sitham

 Yep in 2018 as well as the usual retrogrades we have both Mars (now finished thank goodness!) AND Venus turn retrograde!

Yep in 2018 as well as the usual retrogrades we have both Mars (now finished thank goodness!) AND Venus turn retrograde!

Hello lovely ones and happy Monday!

Hope the New Moon treated you all well and you will use this next lunar cycle to bring successes your way :)

Onwards to today which sees Venus, planet of love, abundance, harmony, creativity, socializing and peace move out of Libra and into Scorpio.

Venus in Scorpio is an extremely different energy to Venus in Libra and understandably so as Scorpio is a much more intense sign than loveable Libra.

For the general Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Scorpio transit please see the bottom of this blog.

But onwards to the title of this post and what the next few weeks of Venus in Scorpio heralds for each of us.

Venus officially turns retrograde on October 5th at 10 degrees of Scorpio.

During her backwards dance she will make her way back into Libra.

Her retrograde will officially end on November 16th at 25 degrees of Libra.

But there is her shadow.

Oh yes, her slippery shadow.

The pre retrograde shadow started just a few days ago on September 2nd at 25 degrees of Libra.

So we are truly in the shadow right now.

The pre-retrograde shadow is when things may pop up which need to be dealt with properly during the retrograde.

The retrograde can find us in the thick of dealing with the issues which we need to do all things RE with.

And then the post retrograde shadow is when things sort themselves out, settle and we get clarity and closure.

I think you all now by now the life areas ruled by Venus but you also need to look at the life areas ruled by Scorpio and Libra (both in the natural zodiac and in your unique charts) to understand the themes that the cosmos is asking you to review and reset.

In summary the general themes of this particular transit are: - sex, love, how we receive, our relationship with money, our relationship with others, our relationships with ourselves, transformation, our creativity, how we fight and how we make peace/compromise.

Just some light stuff to deal with, ya know!

Eye roll/winking emjois inserted.

But you know what, as you will see when I write the detailed Soulstrology Venus retrograde 2018 blog, this retrograde has soooo much potential and in many ways is choca full of gifts and blessings.

But what to do now?

Well first off, do not panic.

I repeat - do not panic!

But just take note, notice what comes up for you and observe it rather than judging it.

Retrogrades are not punishments.

They are opportunities to reset ourselves.

So whatever comes up during this shadow may well be a prelude to the retrograde but ultimately is bubbling up to help you.

Trust. Trust. Trust.

And listen to a soundbath or two ;)

Speaking of which, all being well I will be recording a very special Soulstrology Soundbath for you lovely souls which will be going live at the Fall Equinox and will help you all navigate this Venus retrograde :)

Love,

Ambi x

 

Here are the Soulstrology do's and don'ts for this Venus in Scorpio transit with the Soulstrology zodiac guide for the transit below that (don't forget to read for both your sun and rising sign).

DO'S

  • Dive deep Venus in Scorpio likes to dive under the surface. Forget superficiality during this transit and scratching the surface. With whatever you do, whether it's love, work etc, go deep.
  • Bring sexy back This placement and transit really helps us connect to the sultry seductiveness of Scorpio. Regardless of your relationship status, how can you connect to your inner sex pot? If you are in a relationship this can be a sizzling time for your sex life! Or a time to reignite the spark.
  • Reinvent yourself. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and Venus is the sign of beauty. This transit is a great time for a makeover.
  • Purchase items of substance This placement encourages us to spend on things which have a deeper meaning to us and are of a soulful as well as material value. Think things which empower you and help you connect more to your higher self (whether that is an item or service).

DON'TS

  • Be overly intense I know, I know, this seems to conflict with the first DO above! But here is the thing, during this transit we need to navigate being deep without being overly intense. It's a fine line because the light of Scorpio is depth, but the shadow is over intensity!
  • Be jealous/possessive. The notorious shadow of Scorpio is jealousy and possessiveness. Watch out for this and wrecking relationships of all sorts during this time with unnecessary jealousy.
  • Be on a power trip. This placement encourages us to be powerful but be mindful of excess and going on a power trip and making enemies along the way.
  • End things too suddenly. This placement can encourage us to cut off what we consider to be dead or decaying but be mindful of your consciousness and don't rush into ending something (eg quitting a job or a relationship) check you're not falling into the Scorpio shadow of letting over intensity push you into something you may regret! 

Scorpio/Scorpio 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 Scorpio.

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

New Moon in Virgo September 9 2018: Sacrifice and success

Ambi Sitham

 Virgo knows all too well that success requires sacrifice...

Virgo knows all too well that success requires sacrifice...

Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon in Virgo!

This New Moon takes place on Sunday September 9 at 11.01 am PT (adjust for your timezone) and falls at 17 degrees of Virgo.

As always, please check where Virgo rules in your natal chart.

If you're a Soulstrology beginner then simply use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check which life areas this Virgo New Moon is highlighting for you.

If you are a Soulstrology whizz then you can check for exactly 17 degrees of Virgo to see exactly where this New Moon is falling in your unique chart and which planets you may have which are being cosmically activated by this New Moon (any planets between 14 and 20 degrees of Virgo will get activated!)

Lastly if you are a Virgo/Virgo rising (hello #virgorising one of my fave hashtags for memes!) then this is like your personal annual New Moon and a really important cosmic window to set intentions for the next year ahead.

Remember that regardless of your sign, Virgo in the natural zodiac rules your health - mind, body and soul and your daily routine, work, and lifestyle, as well as any pets in your life.

So keep these areas of life in mind as you set intentions for the next lunar month.

Onwards to this New Moon and the celestial aspects which are at play and why the Soulstrology theme for this New Moon is 'sacrifice and success'.

One of the main aspects at this New Moon is a very fortunate aspect which is Jupiter (in Scorpio) sextiling (a harmonious flowing aspect) Pluto (in Capricorn).

This aspect is about transformation and rebirth creating solid foundations for lasting success.

It brings opportunity, luck and power!

It peaks a few days after the New Moon on September 12 but we can each harness the energies at the time of the New Moon.

The other main aspect at this New Moon is Neptune (in Pisces) opposing the Sun and Moon who join together in Virgo.

Oppositions are tougher aspects and can bring challenges but Soulstrology teaches us that these challenging aspects are actually the ones which bring many nuggets of gold our way, the silver lining in any clouds we may experience at this time.

Onwards to the Soulstrology theme for this New Moon of sacrifice and success.

I think it is fair to say that we all want success in our lives.

We all want to experience abundance, joy, good health and the manifestation of our desires.

But are we truly prepared to undertake the hard work and sacrifices that are usually involved in order to enjoy such blessings?

More often than not I think if we are honest with ourselves the answer is no, not really.

We may take steps towards a goal, or even work hard, but often when it gets to that really uncomfortable sticky point, we may find ourselves giving up.

We may make some sacrifices on the way to achieving our desires, but more often than not pull back when we feel the sacrifices become too much.

This is normal.

It is part of being a human and having ego shadow traits of fear, disillusionment, insecurity, laziness, lack of drive, etc etc

However if we can overcome the shadow traits and darkness of our egos and engage the traits of diligence, virtuousness, dependability and tenacity we can achieve our goals!

And this is what Soulstrology is all about.

Not looking to a horoscope to predict our future, but instead understanding the energies at play and engaging cosmic consciousness to co-create our life with the aid of the cosmos.

At this time we need to take a book out of virtuous Virgo's book.

Yes, Virgo has its shadow elements (as does each sign of the zodiac) but at this time we will be focusing on Virgo's light and positive traits and trying to tap into those to manifest our desires!

Virgo is the worker bee.

Unafraid of rolling up their sleeves, getting their hands dirty and knuckling down to hard work.

Virgo takes care of the small details, knowing that working away each day is what manifests that bigger picture goal.

Virgo is not only unafraid of hard work, Virgo relishes in it (sometimes too much so but that's for a Full Moon post!)

They embrace working hard, not seeking immediate glory or validation, but instead finding glory in their hard work and allowing their efforts to yield results in due course.

Regardless of our sign, or of how we are feeling about life right now (maybe we have had a tough summer - or was that just me?!) or our jobs, our lifestyles, our work, or the areas of life ruled by Virgo in our unique charts, must all engage these traits of Virgo.

We must be prepared to roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty, knuckle down, take care of the smaller details and do the every day grind, in order to achieve our bigger picture desires.

We must be prepared to do this with humility and grace.

Not complaining about any sacrifices but understanding that those sacrifices are what will bring us the success we seek and ultimately will satiate our souls.

Jupiter sextile Pluto is here to help us at this New Moon.

It infuses this New Moon and the next lunar cycle with luck and opportunity.

Neptune opposing this New Moon may bring a challenging energy.

We may feel confused, uncertain, or fearful as to our path ahead, our most cherished dreams and how they will manifest.

We may be deceiving ourselves (shadow of Neptune is deception) as to why things aren't happening in our lives.

We may feel victimized in some way (shadow of Neptune is victim syndrome) by a person or life - the cosmos itself - as to why we are where we are and not where we want to be.

Being honest with ourselves (and I mean brutally honest with ourselves) is essential at this time for us to move forward, work with the cosmos and manifest our desires. 

We must not be afraid of the sacrifices that we may need to make in order to manifest our desires.

We must embrace sacrifice as a necessary tool which brings success.

We must take the time to write down the steps which need to be taken to achieve certain goals and be prepared to do the nitty gritty and perhaps even include that on our New Moon manifestation lists.

Virgo loves detail.

So at this New Moon I really encourage you all to take the time to review your goals for the next lunar month and embrace going into detail.

Don't just think about the bigger goal and be so blinded by it that you can't see what steps you need to take to get you there.

Break it down and see what small steps need to be taken in order to for you to make progress towards the manifestation of your bigger picture goal.

And embrace hard work and ensuing sacrifices with a soulful attitude.

The cosmos responds to our energy and efforts.

What we desire, can and will be ours.

Saturn direct September 6 2018: Learning from the past

Ambi Sitham

 Lessons from the cosmic life coach....

Lessons from the cosmic life coach....

Hello lovely ones and happy Thursday!

I hope September is treating you well so far....

Things are going to pick up significantly this month and today, cosmic life coach Saturn turns direct at 2 degrees of Capricorn.

Saturn turned retrograde earlier this year on April 17 and you may recall that the Soulstrology theme for 2018's Saturn retrograde was karmic contracts and responsibilities.

The Saturn in Capricorn transit which started last December 2017 at the Winter Solstice is still very much in the early stages with the cosmic taskmaster only having reached 9 degrees of Capricorn before turning retrograde.

During his retrograde he went back over 7 degrees of Capricorn resulting in him turning direct today at 2 degrees of Capricorn.

The first year of any Saturn transit brings lessons and tests.

It shows us what the headmaster of the zodiac has decided we need to correct in order to move forward upon a firm foundation and ultimately to success and the achievement of goals in whatever life area Saturn is transiting in our charts.

In Capricorn (the natural home place of Saturn) the intensity of the tests and the lessons has been exacerbated.

There is a distinctly karmic feel to events occurring within the Capricorn ruled parts of each of our charts and therefore lives.

During this retrograde this energy would have been amped up.

We may have faced difficulties, disappointments or delays in the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts.

But none of this is a punishment, but rather us being pushed.

Pushed to create proper firm foundations for long lasting soulful success in our lives.

Now that Saturn has turned direct, we will find it easier to make progress in the Capricorn ruled parts of our lives (and generally speaking with regards to our careers and career goals/ambitions as in the natural zodiac Capricorn is ruler of the tenth house of career/success/status).

However we will only be able to move forwards properly if we integrate lessons from the past four and a half months of Saturn's retrograde.

So, a little cosmic coaching homework for you....answer the following questions honestly taking into consideration the life areas ruled by Capricorn in your unique chart (Soulstrology zodiac guide for Saturn in Capricorn is below for your ease) as well as considering the natural zodiac themes of Capricorn (career/success/status).

  1. What delays, difficulties or disappointments have I experienced in the Capricorn ruled ares of life in my chart and the natural zodiac?
  2. What lessons have I learnt and how can I integrate these lessons into my life (read next question which will help you answer the integration aspect!)
  3. How do I limit myself in these areas of life and how can I stop?
  4. What changes do I need to make in these areas of life so I can be building from a firmer foundation?
  5. What am I prepared to sacrifice in order to achieve my goals in these areas of life?

Remember, success is ours for the taking but we need to learn from the past if we are to create the future of our dreams...

Love to hear your questions or comments on this Saturn in Capricorn transit, the retrograde and so on which I can answer below if you leave your comment or question on this blog.

Back at the weekend with your New Moon blog and Soulstrology Scopes!

Love,

Ambi x

Pluto Soulstrology Soundbath!

Ambi Sitham

Bowl.jpeg.jpg

Hello lovely ones!

My apologies that the Pluto Soulstrology Soundbath was tucked away in a cosmic update post for the Summer Solstice and thus was hard for some of you to find.

Here it is now for your ease of access within the Soundbath section.

I have taken this as a sign that I need to listen to good old Pluto myself and about to make a cup of tea, light some sage, put my headphones in and listen to Pluto and let him help me.

Hope you enjoy this soundbath as much as I do!

Much love,

Mars direct August 27: Action Stations

Ambi Sitham

 Let's go!

Let's go!

Hello lovely ones and happy Monday!

It truly is a happy Monday today, as cosmic manifestor and mover and shaker Mars turns direct after what seems like the longest retrograde ever (it's actually just been two months, but wow, has it felt like a long retrogradey summer!)

Now as you may recall most of Mars retrograde has taken place in the fixed sign of Aquarius but in the last couple of weeks of his retrograde he moved into Capricorn transiting over those critical last degrees of Aquarius from 28-30 degrees.

Now he will make his way back through the zodiac, through those last critical degrees of Capricorn (look at where you have 28-30 degrees of Capricorn in your chart) until September 10th when he returns to Aquarius where he will remain until November 15th when he finally leaves Aquarius (due to his retrograde action he will have spent the best part of five months this year in Aquarius) and when he moves into Pisces.

There is a pivotal point in late September (on the 27th) where Mars joins up for the final time with the South node of the moon (karma) and opposes the North node of the Moon (destiny).

But what does this all mean in practical terms for each of us?

Well, the Soulstrology theme for this Mars direct is 'Action stations'. This is a military term (Mars also rules the military and war) and is defined as being,

the situation in which you are as ready as possible to perform a task you have been preparing for

And there we have it....it's time for things to move and manifest!

Do you feel as though you have been preparing for something all summer? Working towards something? Pushing to make something happen? Enduring the grind?

And perhaps all whilst feeling as though your efforts have been thwarted left, right and center, resulting in a sense of frustration?

If so, be comforted by the fact that we now have some cosmic respite.

Be ready for your efforts to be rewarded.

Be ready for energies to shift and things to start falling into place.

For you to reap what you have sown.

The last week of September when karma and destiny is triggered by Mars dance alongside the South node and opposing the North node is when we may discover what the karmic lesson (and blessing) was of this Mars retrograde.

A reminder below of the life areas ruled by Capricorn and Aquarius for each sign by way of two Soulstrology zodiac guides.

The life areas for both your Sun and Rising sign are due to receive cosmic respite, a shift in energy and a change in gears.

No more stuck in Summer retro stickiness vibes.

It's time for a beautiful shift!

Action stations it is!

Love,

Ambi x

Soulstrology Scopes: Pisces Full Moon August 2018

Ambi Sitham

IMG_7508.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy almost Full Moon!

Here are your general Pisces Full Moon mantras as well as personalized mantras for each sign.

Remember to read for both your Sun and Rising sign.

Also, you can make a ritual out of these mantras and include them in your burn and release list, or can simply meditate using the general mantras or the personalized mantras.

As this Full Moon has quite a lucky, magical energy to it, I suggest listening to the Jupiter and Earth soundbath which I put out in May this year.

But as always, make sure to tune in to what is going on with you at this time and adjust your meditation accordingly.

If you feel you need deep healing (and to let that sh*t go) then the Chiron Full Moon soundbath will be helpful.

If you are feeling a powerful transformation going on then I recommend the Pluto soundbath.

As you know by now there are a selection of soundbaths (and other meditations!) at your disposal so just find what works for you at this particular lunar window.

Onwards to the mantras...

 

PISCES FULL MOON MANTRAS

I allow myself to pursue my dreams with confidence knowing that anything is possible
I let my intuition guide me as to the next steps I need to take in order to manifest my desires
I trust that any seeming blocks, barriers or delays to the manifestation of my desires serve a purpose and can be used as a tool for my personal growth which will ultimately aid my manifesting abilities

SOULSTROLOGY SCOPES PISCES FULL MOON AUGUST 2018

 

ARIES/ARIES RISING:

I trust in the validity of my heart's secret desires, and of projects I work on behind the scenes, or in secret.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING:

 

I review all of my goals for the future and make sure that these goals reflect my true innermost desires.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING:

 

I look to my career ambitions and ask myself honestly if my goals reflect my higher self and what I want my legacy to be. I let go of any goals which are not in true alignment with my values.

CANCER/CANCER RISING

 
I let my intuition guide me as to what my higher self needs so that I can expand my consciousness and so too expand my life.

LEO/LEO RISING

 
I allow myself the luxury of pursuing all of my dreams relating to joint financial ventures, merging with others, sex and deep transformation. I aim high knowing that I am capable of achieving all of my heart's desires in these areas. I release all that does not serve me so I may receive all that does.
 

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING

 

I tune into what my heart truly wants in partnerships. I ask my higher self and intuition to guide me as to who are the best partners for me in all areas of life. I allow myself to fulfill my dream of healthy, fulfilling partnerships by first letting go of any emotional, physical or energetic blocks and barriers
 

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING

 

I trust that it is possible to have the daily routine and working lifestyle of my dreams. I know that this includes balance for my mind, body and soul and serves both me and others.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING

 

I allow my intuition to guide me at this time and allow my dreams to prevail even if I do not know exactly how I will manifest them. I know that allowing my mind the luxury of imagination and to dream is one of the biggest manifesting gifts I can give myself. I trust that by releasing limiting beliefs and the need to control I can manifest more effortlessly
 

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING

 

I trust that it is possible for me to flourish financially and be abundant doing what I love which reflects my true values and benefits my higher self. I allow myself to dream big and to reach for the stars when it comes to my personal finances and income. I trust that by healing and release my shadow I can manifest beyond my expectations
 

PISCES/PISCES RISING:

 
I allow myself to dream a big dream. To aim for the stars, and being the best version of myself in all areas. To flourish and to be in effortless,  manifesting flow. I trust that by releasing any self sabotaging behaviors, and by backing up my dreams with action, I can manifest all of my heart's desires
 

 

Full Moon in Pisces August 26 2018: Dreams do come true...

Ambi Sitham

 Really and truly, dreams do come true...

Really and truly, dreams do come true...

Hello lovely ones and happy almost weekend, and almost Full Moon!

This weekend, at approx 5am PT on Sunday 26th August 2018 (adjust for your timezone) there will be a Full Moon in Pisces.

This is a magical Full Moon which falls at exactly 3 degrees of the water sign of Pisces.

If you're a relative newbie to astrology and still finding your way with reading your chart and Soulstrology then please don't get too spun out as to the exact placement of this Full Moon in your chart.

Instead, just refer to the Soulstrology zodiac guide for this Pisces Full Moon (at the bottom of this blog) to work out the life areas being brought into the lunar spotlight at this time.

If you are a bit more of a veteran Soulstrologer, then do check where three degrees of Pisces falls in your chart, as well as any planets you have between zero - six degrees of Pisces as they too will be impacted by this Full Moon.

Now as you know sometimes at Full Moons the Soulstrology themes can be somewhat heavy and intense, whereas this particular Pisces Full Moon theme is considerably lighter, and more magical.

As you all probably know by now Full Moons are the highest point of the lunar cycle and as such they are intense times.

Sometimes these intense times involve something bubbling up in the lunar spotlight to be healed and released, hence why the focus of so many Soulstrology posts is about how we can transform, heal, release and align.

However, as Full Moons are also the highest point of the lunar cycle we can indeed experience great highs at these times, where things come to fruition and celebratory completion.

And Soulstrology tells us that due to all the aspects at play at this Full Moon it holds all the potential for magic to manifest and for dreams to come true...

As always, each of us will be at different stages of our souls journey and dealing with a unique set of circumstances at this time.

In addition this Full Moon will make unique aspects to each of our charts.

In some cases making tougher, more challenging aspects (hello Full Moon feels!) and in others, making harmonious, flowing aspects (hello things coming to fruition!).

As always I encourage you to read the Soulstrology blog (and Soulstrology Scopes which will come out tomorrow in advance of the Full Moon) and to take what serves you and apply it according to what is occurring for you at this Pisces Full Moon.

Turning now to the 12th sign of the zodiac who is at the center of this Full Moon...

Pisces is the sign of the dreamer.

The creative, spiritual, dreamer who sometimes appears to live in an alternative universe...

This sign has a deep spiritual connection to the cosmos, which combined with their innate creativity and powerful imagination can lead to them dreaming big dreams.

Do not underestimate the soft, sensitive souls who are Pisces.

They may be one of the kindest, most compassionate signs of the zodiac but they are also major manifestors and powerhouses (Steve Jobs, Michael Dell, Sara Blakely and Jimmy Iovine are just a few examples).

The shadow of this sign (and something for each of us to consider at this Full Moon) is they are often overly idealistic (aka unrealistic) and choose to see the world through rose tinted glasses only to be upset when they get a reality check (and often then go into victim mode).

They also often have a serious lack of boundaries and find themselves floating around in dynamics where they take on the role of rescuer only to adopt the victim role later on when they feel their efforts haven't been appreciated.

All things for us to be thinking about and releasing on our Full Moon burn and release lists!

But back now to dreams coming true and the magical manifesting energies of this Full Moon...

As always at a Full Moon there is a Sun/Moon opposition.

The Moon in this case sits in Pisces. The Sun in Virgo.

This calls for a balance between these two signs and their traits.

The idealism and imagination of Pisces to dream, and the practical realism of Virgo to DO.

We also have what is known as grand trine where other planets make a harmonious formation to each other and the Sun and Moon, resulting in a kite formation celestial connection in the skies.

It's like a cosmic love fest with the planets highest energies working with each other, to our advantage.

At this Full Moon we have the Sun in Virgo making a beautiful trine to both Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus.

This aids the practical manifestation (Saturn) in the physical realm (the Sun) of many of our innovative ideas (Uranus) and is akin to genius shower ideas coming to fruition!

We also have the Moon (our emotions and intuition) making a sextile (another harmonious aspect) to Saturn (logic, reason and practicality) and making a sextile to Uranus bringing a harmonious accord between our emotions and our innovative ideas.

Heavyweight Saturn also makes a beautiful trine to Uranus blending the energies of long lasting success (Saturn) and sudden change launching us into the future (Uranus).

This powerful celestial combination can indeed result in dreams coming true around the Full Moon and magic being manifested!

For those of you whom this is a time of celebratory completion with things coming to fruition, congrats and enjoy!

Bask in that lunar spotlight and know that Full Moons can often be happy times and this is one of those celebratory Full Moons for you!

For those of you who don't feel as though you have much to celebrate, don't count yourself out too early...

Harness the powerful grand trine kite celestial energies to know that your dreams (and specifically those in the Pisces ruled parts of your charts) can come true.

It's all a matter of balancing positivity with pragmatism, dreams with action, tradition, order and stability with innovation and creativity.

It's all doable, it just requires a fine balancing act and releasing those parts of ourselves or our lives which do not aid us in finding this harmony between the different aspects of ourselves, and life.

Depending on where you are in your journey you may wish to engage in some, or all of the following rituals.

Look at the shadow of Pisces and release any of those character traits which you may be holding onto. Add these to your burn and release list and as the lists goes up in flames, feel those parts of yourself healing and those traits leaving you energetically.

Hone in on the Pisces ruled part of your chart.

What is disappointing you in relation to the life areas ruled by Pisces in your chart?

What dreams of yours do you feel have been dashed, or are failing to come to fruition?

Journal about it and tune into what you need to let go of.

Then ask yourself what is causing you pain or anguish in any area of life.

Meditate, visualize yourself letting it go as you watch the words in your release list burn and disappear into the ether.

Once you have done this, make a list of your dreams, focusing on the Pisces ruled parts of each of your charts (but feel free to include general dreams you have) and make that list and burn it too, allowing the energy of your dreams once again to go up in flames and be sent into the ether.

And if you're feeling celebratory perhaps engage in a gratitude ritual, writing to the cosmos - or a higher force you believe in, giving thanks to that energy source (and yourself) for the dreams that have already come true.

Most important of all remember that dreams do come true.

Magic and miracles happen all the time.

And you are as entitled to experiencing your dreams coming true and magic manifesting in your life as much as the next person.

Dream, believe, achieve. And listen to a Soulstrology Soundbath or meditation to assist you!

Soulstrology Scopes coming tomorrow...

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solar Eclipse Leo August 2018 Soulstrology Scopes

Ambi Sitham

soulstrologyscopesleoeclipse.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Friday!

Well here we are - the day before the last eclipse of 2018 and the last solar eclipse of the Leo/Aquarius set.

As you will see when you read the Soulstrology Leo solar eclipse blog, this really is the 'Last Roar'....

I advise reading the blog and listening to the podcast before reading your Soulstrology Scopes.

As what I did last time (with an affirmation/mantra for each sign) seemed to resonate with you all so well, I decided to do it again.

You can use these affirmations/mantras as part of your New Moon wish list and/or as part of your manifesting list for the next six months.

You could also try something different (which is something I have been playing with recently) which is to write down affirmations and then burn them and let the energy and desires contained within those words be released into the universe, to manifest in divine timing.

Of course you can also chose to just write a separate detailed New Moon/Six Month wish list and keep these mantras handy in your journal.

Remember to read the Soulstrology zodiac guide for this solar eclipse which is at the bottom of this blog.

Read for both your sun and rising sign to see which life areas are being highlighted by the solar spotlight and subjected to the changeable eclipse energy. 

And don't forget to listen to the Soundbaths and more (maybe the manifesting meditation) which will help you navigate this eclipse (and the mass retrogrades, argh!)

Love,

Ambi x

Solar eclipse in Leo August 2018: The Last Roar

Ambi Sitham

solareclipseleo.png

Hello lovely ones and happy Thursday!

This Saturday 11th August 2018 at just before 3am PT there will be a partial solar eclipse New Moon in Leo (adjust for your timezone).

It will fall at exactly 18 degrees of Leo and will be the last solar eclipse of the Leo/Aquarius set of eclipses.

It will open a cosmic window of opportunity which will wrap up with the Leo lunar eclipse in January 2019.

As such, Soulstrology tells us that this lunar eclipse is 'the last roar' in relation to shifts in the Leo ruled parts of our charts and therefore lives, which were activated last August 2017 when we experienced two Leo new moons in the same month, one of which was the famed total solar eclipse.

Let us turn now to the specifics of this solar eclipse and what we need to know in order to best work with the energies, not only over this next lunar month, but over the next six months and the corresponding Leo Lunar eclipse.

Now, I probably don't need to tell you that good ole Mercury is in retrograde motion (making a total of SEVEN planets in retrograde, gah!).

Mercury is actually retrograde in Leo and not only that, he is actually conjunct this Solar Eclipse!

This means his retrograde energies are very much part of this Leo solar eclipse and forces us to stop and do everything RE.

To reflect, review, reconsider, reset, reconcile, restart, redo in relation to the Leo ruled life areas - both in the natural zodiac and in our unique charts.

Soulstrology tells us that it is no cosmic coincidence that Mercury is retrograde in Leo and conjunct this solar eclipse, when this eclipse is the last in the set of solar eclipses for the Leo/Aquarius axis.

The cosmos is giving each of us an opportunity to consider whether what we have been trying to achieve over the last year or so in the Leo ruled parts of our charts is what we truly want (in terms of our soul truly wanting it) and if the manifestation of these goals is truly for our highest good.

Leo as you all probably know is a fire sign and is also a fixed sign.

This fiery sign can therefore be very fixed in its approach to what is is trying to achieve.

Leo can be incredibly stubborn refusing to realize that sometimes the universe not delivering is the universe saying - not now, it's not the right time, it's not for you or just plain ole 'NO'.

Not taking no for an answer is often viewed as being a good thing, as a strength, and it absolutely can be/is - in certain circumstances.

But we need to know when not taking no for an answer is self-sabotage and is keeping us from our true destiny.

Now each of us are on different parts of our soul's journey and it may be that for some of us this Leo solar eclipse is asking us for one final push to achieve certain goals or milestones in the Leo ruled part of our lives.

Either way, wherever you are on your journey, be less attached to the exact goal and more focused on the vibration you want to experience in your life.

Remember in the natural zodiac Leo rules our hearts - what we love.

How we have fun and enjoy life.

Our unique self-expression.

Our passions - hobbies and loved ones.

Our love lives and romance.

Children - whether children in our lives - ours or others (or children we want to have in the future) or our inner child.

So when you are looking at the goals in relation to the Leo ruled parts of your unique chart and life (which of course will differ for each of us) remember to tune into your heart.

Tune into what brings you joy, what you are passionate about, what lights you up from the inside and makes you glow on the outside.

Follow your heart but don't be too fixed on how your heart's desires will be fulfilled.

It may take longer than you think, or manifest in a different way, or take you off track on a different route.

But ultimately all that matters is that your heart's desires are fulfilled and that it truly serves your highest good.

Just as Leo rules the heart, so too does Leo rule bravery.

So in the dark moon as la luna disappears from the skies and leaves a blank canvas do not be afraid of the darkness, of a void or any funky eclipse vortex feels which you may be feeling.

Embrace the darkness and any eclipse mass retro feels like a courageous Leo braveheart.

Dig deep, go inwards and do all the Mercury retrograde self-reflection to review the shifts which have taken part in the Leo ruled parts of your life over the last year.

At this solar eclipse we have a powerful trine between Neptune and Jupiter which shows that the manifestation of goals infused with spiritual consciousness and for a greater good will be aided by the cosmos.

Saturn trines Uranus offering energies of both inventiveness and creativity alongside a solid structure and realism. Combining innovation and tradition and marrying the two (yes really!) to get us to where we want to be.

Jupiter squares Mercury reminding us to be mindful as to how we think about our goals and our visions for the future.

We are asked not to be overly proud or arrogant (both Leo shadow traits) but instead to adopt humility, to learn from the lessons of the past year and to be measured and grounded in our approach to our goals and ensure we are thinking about them realistically and practically.

Listen to the Leo solar eclipse Soulstrology podcast and ask yourselves the following questions and answer them honestly.

What have I achieved?
What have I failed to achieve or am I struggling to achieve?
What goals do I need to let go of trusting that by letting go I am making space for the manifestation of what truly serves me, even if I don't yet know what that is?
What goals do I have which I am no longer so passionate about?
How can I reset those goals to reflect my true passions?

Once you have tuned in to your heart having gone inwards and considered all the cosmic aspects at play, make your manifestation list and let it be your last roar to help you manifest a big shift come the Leo lunar eclipse in January 2019.

Roar loudly and bravely knowing that the cosmos is always on your side (even when it doesn't feel like it is!).

Soulstrology Scopes general mantras and personalized mantras coming tomorrow :)

Love,

Ambi x

Uranus retrograde in Taurus and Aries August 7th 2018 - January 6th 2019

Ambi Sitham

uranusretroblog.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!

As usual everything seems to be happening in the cosmos all at once....so there will be a lot of posts this week but remember to just take what most resonates with you and work with that.

Onwards to today's cosmic action....

Uranus - zodiac change agent and planetary mover and shaker turns retrograde for almost five months.

Now, as you will recall, Uranus went into Taurus earlier this year (in May) kicking off an almost eight year transit of change in the life areas ruled by Taurus in the natural zodiac (our personal finances, income, possessions and our values and self-esteem) as well as the life areas ruled by Taurus in our unique charts.

This big move by the planetary change agent also brought to an end the eight year Uranus in Aries transit.

But now, with the annual retrograde motion of Uranus he is also going to dip back into Aries and when he turns direct in January 2019 as he starts moving forwards again he will cover some old ground of Aries (and significantly the critical last degrees of this sign!).

So what does all this mean for each of you?

First off the exact degrees of this Uranus retrograde takes place between 2 degrees of Taurus and 28 degrees of Aries.

So if you can check your charts to see where these degrees fall you will see exactly where this retrograde is taking place.

But, for the purposes of our Soulstrology work, it is enough for you to simply know where Aries and Taurus rule in your charts.

For your ease of reference I set out two Soulstrology zodiac guides below for both Uranus in Taurus retrograde and Uranus in Aries so you can see for yourselves the relevant dates and where this transit takes place (remember to read for both your Sun and Rising sign if you know the latter).

URANUS IN TAURUS RETROGRADE

The Uranus in Taurus retrograde starts today and ends on November 6th.

During this time we will explore through the themes of Uranus in Taurus so far and evaluate where we each are with regards to this transit so that we can use this retrograde to reset ourselves and make the most of Uranus in Taurus direct motion in 2019.

For now, just look at the life areas ruled by Taurus in your chart (see Soulstrology zodiac guide below) and if you know your chart well also please look at any planets you have between zero and five degrees of Taurus as these will be pinged by this retrograde.

SOULSTROLOGY ZODIAC GUIDE TO URANUS IN TAURUS RETROGRADE

READ FOR SUN AND RISING SIGN!

  • Aries - your income, your possessions, your personal finances, your values (who and what you value in life) and your self-esteem
  • Taurus - your identity, the very essence of who you are, how people see you

  • Cancer - your tribe, friendships, groups you belong to, causes you support, your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future
  • Leo - success, career, ambition, your status, your public legacy
  • Virgo - spirituality/religion/higher learning, legal matters, travel, foreign places and people
  • Libra - joint projects and finances, merging, transformation that comes through merging
  • Scorpio - close partnerships of all kinds, platonic, professional and romantic (marriage too)
  • Sagittarius - your daily lifestyle/routine, service and work, your health - mind/body/soul
  • Capricorn - love and romance, children - yours and/or others, fun, self-expression and creativity
  • Aquarius - home - who what and where you consider home, family, your childhood, domestic life
  • Pisces - your mind, communication, your 'voice' in all formats and related projects, short trips, your siblings, neighbors and local community

 

URANUS IN ARIES RETROGRADE

The Uranus in Aries retrograde takes place between November 7th 2018 and January 6th 2019.

This transit is super important because it gives us the opportunity to look back at the last eight years and the Aries ruled areas of life both in the natural zodiac (our identity, appearance, leadership, autonomy, manifesting abilities etc) as well as in our own unique charts.

This is a REALLY important transit to shift something in relation to the Aries ruled areas of life which we may have struggled with over the last eight years.

It's like the final hurrah to go inward to reset ourselves and create an external revolution in our lives!

During this transit we will be exploring what happened over the last eight years and how we can bring about a final revolution in the Aries ruled parts of each of our charts and lives.

For now, just look at the life areas ruled by Aries in your chart (see Soulstrology zodiac guide below) and if you know your chart well also please look at any planets you have between 25 - 30 degrees of Aries as these will be pinged by this transit.

 

SOULSTROLOGY ZODIAC GUIDE TO URANUS IN ARIES RETROGRADE

READ FOR BOTH YOUR SUN AND RISING SIGN!

Aries: - Your identity, autonomy, appearance, how others view you

Taurus: - Healing, the subconscious mind, psychological issues, secrets/what you keep hidden, including work you do behind the scenes and secret projects

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

Finally, in celebration of both these transits I will be recording new Soulstrology Soundbaths to come out in Fall and then Winter!

Super excited to record these and to help you all align with these powerful retrogrades and the life changing energies of Uranus!

Ok, that's all from me for today....more soon :)

Love,

Venus in Libra August 7th - September 9 2018: Love is being at peace, with yourself and others

Ambi Sitham

venusinlibra.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy Monday!

I hope this finds you well and coping with the mass retro and eclipse season....argh!

We have another due to go retrograde this week - rebellious, innovative, game changer Uranus.

More on that soon... but first off on tomorrow's cosmic activity which sees Venus move into Libra where she will be until September 9th.

I set out at the bottom of this post the Soulstrology do's and don'ts of this transit as well as the Soulstrology zodiac guide which will tell you where this transit is taking place in your chart (remember to read for both your sun and rising sign if you know the latter).

Turning now to the Soulstrology theme of this particular Venus in Libra transit - 'love is being at peace, with yourself and others'.

Libra is the sign of balance, harmony, peace and in the natural zodiac governs relationships of all sorts.

This is the sign who desires life to be harmonious and peaceful and pleasant.

This sign aims to  be pleasing to others (sometimes admittedly to a fault of being a people pleaser!)

It is powerful that Venus has moved into Libra during Mercury retrograde, a mass retrograde and in the thick of eclipse season as she brings all of these qualities to us over the next three weeks of her transit which will (hopefully!) help this eclipse season be a bit calmer and more peaceful.

As you've probably heard me say before, love and money are for many people two of the most challenging areas of life.

We want these energies in our lives and we often exert a lot of effort in order to have abundance or love (often in the form of a certain relationship).

With all that effort (and often anxiety!) it follows that we are rarely at peace with ourselves regarding the sticky matters of love and finances.

And as a result we can often find our relations with others less than harmonious.

Inner peace and self-love (both Libra themes) are the keys to achieving anything worth having in life.

When we are at peace and can love ourselves we can truly enjoy peaceful, loving relations with others.

But how we go about seeking both does not always serve our goals.

Mercury retrograde, mass retrogrades and eclipse season are throwing up all kinds of cosmic shit storms.

These celestial storms are here to shift our consciousness and how we think and behave.

As a result of shifting our consciousness we will be able to shift our reality.

At this time of cosmic discombobulation we are asked to adopt the energies of this Venus in Libra transit.

To do this means applying the Soulstrology theme of this Venus in Libra transit to our relationship with ourselves, others and money....

Check in with yourself even as you read this, what comes up for you?

How does your body react when you think about money? Or relationships of all sorts? Or a particular relationship? Or a relationship you want to have?

And when you look at yourself in the mirror each morning how do you truly feel about yourself?

Are you at peace? Do you unconditionally love yourself?

As human beings we want to manifest certain things emotionally, creatively or financially (all the domain of Venus) yet if we are not at peace and coming from a place of love and trust, then our plans often flail.

We need to adopt the light of Libra - the calmness, the balanced, grounded, loving and peaceful approach to life.

We need to adopt these traits with regards to all our relationships (and yes including of course our love lives -whether we are single or coupled up), our finances and creative projects.

As you all know by now eclipses may throw a curveball at us but that is not something we can control.

What we can control is our reaction.

The truth is hard to be peaceful when the rug is pulled out from underneath us or something happens with regards to relationships or finances which sends us spiraling into fear.

But this is what we need to do.

I will never ever forget the end of one of the worst years of my life, when I (thought) I was finally ending it on a happier note, heading off to spend Christmas with my then boyfriend and his family in the mid West (after which we were headed off on holiday to Tulum) and receiving a call informing me that my freelance work was being terminated (literally the day before Christmas).

This was the straw on the camel's back which really broke me in every way in a year when I had experienced great professional, financial, personal, physical challenges - you name it, it happened to me that year!

Naturally I lost the plot but even whilst losing the plot I could hear a quiet voice saying - this is meant to happen, you can't control it, you need to find peace with it.

I cannot say I handled it as well as I could have done, but in time, I found peace in spite of the financial and relationship challenges that this created.

And now, when the poop hits the fan (which it still does, I certainly don't have a perfect, stress free life) I always come back to this consciousness.

How can I be at peace in spite of what is happening around me?
How can I love myself during this challenging time even when events are making me question my worth?
How can I be at peace and loving towards others in spite of circumstances?
How can I adopt love consciousness (which in truth is faith consciousness, trust) as opposed to fear?

So now, over to you guys.

How can you be at peace, trusting and loving hard on yourself and loving and peaceful with others in spite of circumstances?

How can you adopt love and faith consciousness when it comes to finances and abundance?

How can you transform your consciousness and therefore an area of life?

Sending you all love and will be back tomorrow with your Uranus retro blog.

Love,

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. Just avoid purchasing technology until the end of this transit - because, Mercury!

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

Lunar Eclipse Aquarius July 2018 Soulstrology Scopes

Ambi Sitham

 Scopes for your soul....

Scopes for your soul....

Hello lovely ones and happy Thursday!

Well here we are - the day before the Aquarius lunar eclipse, Mercury is in official retrograde mode and it's all happening in the cosmos...

Hopefully you will have the time to read the Soulstrology Lunar eclipse blog before you read the Soulstrology Scopes as the blog will help you to connect and understand your Soulstrology scopes better.

I am doing something a little different with the Soulstrology Scopes this time with an affirmation/mantra for each sign.

This can almost serve as part of your usual burn and release ritual in that you can write these down and burn them and release the energy into the cosmos (you can also chose to write a full burn and release list in addition/separately).

Remember to read the Soulstrology zodiac guide for this lunar eclipse which is at the bottom of this blog for your zodiac sign.

Read for both your sun and rising sign to see which life areas are being highlighted by the lunar spotlight and perhaps being eclipsed at this time...

And don't forget to listen to the Soundbaths and more which will help you ground during this full on Full Moon!

Love,

Ambi x

 

AQUARIUS FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE MANTRAS

I trust that whatever is happening right now is necessary for my soul's evolution
I trust that whatever I feel I have lost at this time is no longer meant to be in my life
I choose to believe that any losses and endings are paving the way for sweet new beginnings
I let go of the need to understand why certain things are happening
Instead I choose to trust that it is all happening for my highest good and for me to fulfill my destiny

 

SOULSTROLOGY SCOPE MANTRAS

Aries: I release all and any toxic or low vibrational connections which do not serve me knowing that by releasing friendships or associations which drain me I can make space for new, high vibrational like minded friends and can connect to my true soul tribe.

Taurus: I release all and any negative energy regarding my career ambitions and my career itself. I let go of all that does not serve me regarding my career, success and status and know that through this process of releasing and letting go I am making space for true soulful success.

Gemini: I release all and any blocks or barriers to me expanding my mind - through study or travel. I release all and any negativity around any legal matters or contracts. I trust that by releasing all of the above I make space for positive energy to come in and manifest my heart's desires in these areas of life and for 'justice' to be done.

Cancer: I let go of all that does not serve me and all and any negative energy or low vibrations around joint finances (and related projects), sex, merging and transformation. I trust that any endings are necessary to make space for new energy to manifest my highest good in these areas of life. 

Leo: I release all and any negative energy regarding partnerships of all sorts - professional, platonic, romantic - past or present. By releasing this energy and letting go of those partnerships which do not serve me I make space for better partnerships of all kinds.

Virgo: I let go of anything that is preventing me from having a healthy, balanced day to day routine and lifestyle. I trust that if my day to day 'work' does not work for my mind - body and soul then it does not serve me and by letting it go I make space for work that works for me.

Libra: I release all and any negative energies, emotions or situations which prevent me from enjoying true love, doing what I love, having fun and expressing myself. I let go of my inhibitions or insecurities and replace this with confidence in myself and my ability to love life.

Scorpio: I let go of all that does not serve me in relation to family - whether my childhood, current family, a family I wish to have - or my home. I trust that by letting go of the past and what does not serve me, I can have the family and home life I desire.

Sagittarius: I release all ways of thinking and communicating which do not serve me or my highest good. By purging such negativity I know I will have the space to think and communicate for my best and the greater good of all concerned.

Capricorn: I let go of all and any negativity regarding my personal finances and income. I also release anything which is stopping me from valuing myself properly and being valued by others properly. By releasing the above I make space for my finances and life to flourish.

Aquarius: I let go of anything which is stopping me from being the best version of myself and allowing others to experience the best version of me. By releasing all and any negativity in relation to my appearance and identity I allow myself the space to flourish fully.

Pisces: I release all self-sabotaging patterns and behaviors which may be making me my own worst enemy. I let these go knowing that in truth the difficulties I experience are in part my own creation and that through this release I can experience harmony and manifest more.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius July 2018: Fate, destiny, free will and faith

Ambi Sitham

lunareclipseaquarius.png

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly lunar eclipse/Full Moon in Aquarius!

This Full Moon total lunar eclipse is the longest lasting eclipse of the century and starts at 1.20pm this Friday 27th July 2018 and lasts for 103 minutes...yikes!

Soulstrology tells us that for several reasons this is probably one of the most powerful cosmic events of the year....because...

It is a total lunar eclipse.

It is the longest lasting eclipse of the century.

It is conjunct Mars (retrograde) meaning it's energies are blended with Mars in retrograde motion (repressed aggression, frustration, tension).

Both the Sun and the Moon square to Uranus in Taurus creating what is known as a 'T-square' aspect which creates a knife edge tension and means things can happen very suddenly and abruptly.

The Moon is conjunct the south node (past life karma) indicating a fated element to events which occur around the time of the lunar eclipse (this can be in the days leading up or the days following).

This can seem like a punishment as though something fated (and beyond our control) happens which is 'bad' or 'sad' and in some cases will be.

The Sun is conjunct the north node (our destiny in this lifetime) indicating that there is a destined nature to events which occur around the time of the lunar eclipse.

Something that is destined for us in this lifetime (to have, to be etc) can happen which propels us into the next chapter of our lives and leads us towards our destiny. 

The Lunar eclipse Full Moon falls at exactly 4.44 degrees of Aquarius.

444 in angel numbers is a message that we are in harmony with the universe, that angelic forces are with us and importantly that we need to have faith that things are going in the right direction in our lives.

Which leads me nicely to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme for this Lunar eclipse.

Fate, destiny, free will and faith.

We often think of fate and destiny as the same thing and sometimes these expressions are interchangeable and the words deemed synonyms.

However Soulstrology tells us that even though in many ways these expressions are similar  - insofar as they relate to some type of predetermined future - in fact, as per the example of fate and destiny above vis a vis the North and South nodes, the two expressions have distinct differences which we need to understand for the purposes of navigating this lunar eclipse (and indeed, life generally!)

Fate refers to events which are predetermined, inevitable or unavoidable.

This is why our South node or South node related matters are often referred to as 'fated'.

Soulstrology tells us that these events, relationships or matters are predetermined and often arise from past life karma which we experience in this lifetime.

People often get frightened or put off by the term karma but karma isn't always 'bad', it can sometimes be extremely good/positive!

Nonetheless it is karma.

It is the result of previous actions or deeds which we may not have a visceral memory of in this lifetime (because it happened in a previous lifetime) but our soul has an imprinted understanding of on a much deeper level.

This can be 'bad'  - it can be downright upsetting, destructive and hurtful giving us something to work through in order to transform our previous karma and change our ultimate destiny.

It can also be 'good' - it can be something miraculous, magical or lucky happening which has a fated element to it and ultimately allows us to achieve our destiny.

Either way it's fate.

Destiny on the other hand is about our destination - the final outcome for us as such.

It is about where (and who) we are supposed to be in this lifetime.

In this sense, destiny can also be 'good' or 'bad'.

Whether we are destined for 'good' or 'bad' lives is in many ways dependent on how we handle our fate.

How we handle our fate with our faith and free will determines our ultimate destiny!

For some of us the cosmic energies may bring unexpected surprises and blessings.

For others it could bring sudden change in abrupt endings which could feel like a punishment of sorts.

This is the nature of eclipses and this is very much the nature of this eclipse with all the aspects involved as detailed above.

However, what this ultimately means for us is dependent on what we do in response to events (our free will), and whether our conscious is love based (which is essentially faith in action) - or fear based.

We cannot control external events.

We can only control our responses.

A blessing can become a curse and so too a seeming curse can contain a blessing and transform into a miracle.

It all depends on our responses and our consciousness.

As always, we are each at different stages of our soul's journeys with unique charts which are experiencing different transits.

It may be that for some of us we don't really feel this lunar eclipse, it is almost a non event, or a happy one.

It may be that we need this Soulstrology consciousness to be there for others in our lives who do get eclipsed in some way.

Or it may be that we are the ones getting eclipsed.

Either way we must know the difference between fate and destiny and the importance of our free will and our faith to help us ride out the cosmic waves, whether at this time - or in the future.

Soulstrology Scopes with Lunar eclipse affirmations coming soon...

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mercury Retrograde in Leo: July 26 - August 19 2018

Ambi Sitham

 Here we go again....Mercury retro and eclipse season!

Here we go again....Mercury retro and eclipse season!

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!

As if we haven't got enough going on in the cosmos this week, this Thursday July 26th mischievous Mercury turns retrograde in Leo, just one day before a total lunar eclipse which is the longest lasting eclipse of the century.

Yes, really.

Soooo, it's going to be an intense week and all I can recommend to you guys is what I do for myself.

I take extra good care of myself during intense cosmic times.

I hibernate (even more than usual!) and I make sure to meditate (get listening to those soundbaths with headphones on!) and exercise to let off any steam (particularly in nature which always grounds me).

But also, knowledge is power.

I think (hope!) you all know by now, that Soulstrology is all about cosmic consciousness and that by understanding cosmic activity we can adopt a consciousness which allows us to work with the cosmos for our highest good and the greater good.

So, let us dig deeper into this particular Mercury retrograde in order to understand what the cosmos is going to be throwing at us and how best we can work with these energies...

The Mercury retrograde takes place in fiery Leo, who in the natural zodiac rules the fifth house of true love, romance/dating, fun, self-expression, creativity and children - both our inner child and our own children/children we may have in our lives.

Therefore regardless of what sign we are, this Mercury retrograde may bring up these life themes for each of us, requiring us to review them (and hint, regardless of our relationship status - exes may resurface BIG STYLE during this Mercury retrograde).

You may have already experienced a taster of the Mercury retrograde as we are already well in the shadow period so retro issues may have already popped up.

Depending on what level of Soulstrology awareness you are you may want to take a look at your chart and see where you have between 11 and 23 degrees of Leo as these are the exact degrees of the retrograde and will show you exactly where the retrograde is taking place, as well as potentially planets which are in Leo between these degrees which will get 'pinged' by the retrograde.

Now there is no right or wrong, you do not HAVE to know these degrees of Leo in your chart in order to best navigate this Mercury retrograde.

It just depends on how deep you want to go and what resonates with your unique Soulstrology practice.

Remember, sometimes simple is best, no matter how advanced your astro knowledge is!

And as always, there is a Soulstrology zodiac guide (below) to tell you the life areas Mercury will be combing over during his retrograde to keep things simple for you!

Back to the details of this Mercury retrograde though.....

Guys, I am not going to mess around. It's an INTENSE one.

Why soooo intense you may ask?

Well, lets look at the aspects that surround this Mercury retrograde.

It starts one day before the total lunar eclipse, two weeks later the final 2018 eclipse (and the final solar eclipse in Leo for several years) is exactly conjunct Mercury in retrograde motion and during this Mercury retrograde and eclipse season, good ole Mercury will be making what is known as a grand cross formation (tension - major tension as it involves an opposition aspect and squares) between Mercury retrograde in Leo, Mars retrograde in Aquarius, Jupiter in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus.

YIKES.

Yep.

BUT.....

This particular Mercury retrograde undoubtedly has the potential for mayhem, but it has the equal potential for magic, true miraculous magic!

Why?

Because all the tension with this grand cross formation, and the game changers of eclipses are ultimately to birth a new chapter of life.

Tense aspects force an outcome, they force a 'result' of sorts and so too eclipses force endings and new beginnings.

Retrogrades bring back past issues or people for resolution, releasing or reconciling and often this results (all things RE a la mercury retrograde!) in magic and miracles.

But this can only happen if we allow ourselves to be fluid and flexible, to F L O W with the cosmos and what life throws at over the next few weeks rather than to be F I X E D in our response to seeming chaos.

A lot of the energies over the next lunar month - with Mercury retrograde, Mars retrograde, the Aquarius eclipse and the Leo eclipse and the grand cross - involve FIXED signs.

Fixed signs don't do well with change and the energies of the next month or so will make all of us - regardless of our zodiac sign - more 'fixed' in our approach.

This is what will make us feel stuck and frustrated over the next month and will stop us from flowing with the cosmos and life...

So, we need to let go and flow.....and trust.

Always, trust.

More soon later this week on THAT Aquarius lunar eclipse.

Until then don't forget to listen to the Mercury Retrograde Soulstrology Soundbath.

Love,

Ambi x

Cancer Solar Eclipse July 2018 Soulstrology Scopes

Ambi Sitham

soulstrologyscopescancersolareclipse.png

Aries/Aries rising:

Aries the next two years will see a ton of shifts in both your home and career - private you and public you - as the eclipses trigger these areas of your chart. At this solar eclipse powerful Pluto sits in your tenth house of career/success and status opposing the sun and moon in your fourth house of home and family. It's time for a change, a new dawn, a new chapter - at home and at work - maybe a time for you to redefine what success is. Yes, you are the cosmic manifestor and love to be a leader and a powerhouse but don't do it at the expense of your family, personal life and your innermost needs. You may find that personal success is the highest point of your life's work! Time to set your sails in a new direction which allows balance between private you and public you - home and work. Let your heart lead you gently...

Taurus/Taurus rising:

Taurus this Cancer eclipse highlights your third house of your mind and communication. It kicks off a new chapter of life which sees you embracing your voice in all formats. Whether it is your writing, speaking, singing, lecturing, ideas you share on a website/blog, or app - at this Cancer eclipse you need to be setting intentions and sowing seeds which will flower over the next month, six months and the next two years of the eclipses. With powerful Pluto and Saturn dancing in your ninth house of higher learning, publishing, travel and legal matters it is quite possible that you will be learning big lessons in these areas of life and experiencing great transformation which allows you to integrate and find balance between the third and ninth houses. Set your intentions wisely at this time knowing that siblings, neighbors, your local community and short trips are also being brought into the cosmic spotlight - so think about what you want to manifest with them/those areas of life too.

Gemini/Gemini rising:

Gemini your second house of your personal finances, income and possessions is being highlighted by this eclipse. Also brought into the cosmic spotlight is your self-esteem and your values. Meanwhile powerful Pluto joins up with cosmic life coach Saturn in your eighth house of other people's money/joint finances, sex, merging and transformation. Over the next two years you will experience deep transformation in both your second and eighth houses - your finances will look completely different as well as who you get into bed with (financially and otherwise). As your finances transform, so too you will transform and experience certain losses and endings as a result but also a powerful rebirth. Use this solar eclipse to plant the seeds of change with regards to your personal finances - perhaps focusing more on self-esteem and your values and making sure these are aligned with how you make your money.

Cancer/Cancer rising:

Sweet Cancer it is YOUR TIME IN THE COSMOS! This eclipse is falling in your first house of your identity and the next two years are going to see so many shifts in your personal autonomy, identity, appearance - the very essence of YOU. Equally your partnerships will completely transform in this time with powerful Pluto and Saturn working together in your seventh house to create proper strong foundations for partnerships. Yes, some partnerships may struggle, fail and be destroyed. But only what is decaying or not built on firm foundations will die and only so you can experience powerful new partnerships which serve your highest good. By the time the eclipses are finished with you in 2020 (coinciding with Saturn departing your seventh house of partnerships) your personal life and relationships will be completely transformed. With that in mind set intentions focusing on YOU, YOUR needs, desires, goals and values at this eclipse to kick off your personal eclipses on the highest possible note!

Leo/Leo Rising:

Leo this Cancer eclipse falls into your twelfth house of the hidden, endings, closure, work you do behind the scenes, secret projects, healing and isolation. You are entering into an interesting two years which doesn't quite sit with your larger than life character. No it isn't by any means bad or negative, but it isn't quite your usual modus operandi. But it has purpose Leo. The next two years are about finding balance in your health - mind, body and soul - your daily routine, lifestyle and work and taking time in private to do what you need to for the sake of your health and well being. It is also a time where you will work quietly on certain projects only to unveil them in time to come when they are ready. At this Cancer eclipse plant the seeds which you wish to flower over the next two years which will allow you to be healthy and happy mind, body and soul and which will also help you to learn the power of being low key and working on things quietly - whether that is working on yourself, or projects. 

Virgo/Virgo rising:

Virgo at this Cancer eclipse your eleventh house of your soul tribe, friendships - groups/organizations you belong to, causes you support and your most cherished hopes, wishes and dreams for the future are being highlighted. Meanwhile Pluto and Saturn dance together opposite this area of your chart, in your fifth house of true love, creativity, fun and children. These two areas of life will transform completely by 2020 and you will find balance between the two and will also see many of your hopes, wishes and dreams come to fruition. At this Cancer eclipse focus on your soul tribe - set intentions to manifest - whether this means manifesting different friendships, or achieving certain goals with your current soul tribe, maybe it means joining a group/organization or perhaps it is about thinking about what you really want to achieve in the future and tweaking some of those goals. Sow the seeds of change wisely thinking about your heart's desires and start this set of eclipses off on the right note.

Libra/Libra rising:

Libra your tenth house of career/success/status/ambition and the public you - including your public legacy - is being brought into the cosmic spotlight at this solar eclipse. The next two years will see a set of eclipses activating this part of your chart and the part of your chart which rules home, family and domestic life. There will be lots of changes and shifts in these two opposing areas of life over the next two years and come 2020 you will birth a different chapter of life - at both work, and home. At this solar eclipse you need to review your current profession - your career goals and ambitions and even what success means to you. Take the time to think carefully about the seeds you wish to plant with your New Moon solar eclipse intentions knowing that the seeds you plant at this time will start to flower over the next month, the next six months (and the next set of eclipses) and over the next two years. Rome wasn't built in a day and you don't need to make changes right away, they can unfold over time but set your intentions wisely now.

Scorpio/Scorpio rising:

Scorpio this eclipse is falling in your ninth house of higher learning, spirituality, publishing, foreign people and places and legal matters. Soulful Scorpio you are a forever student as well as teacher, and this Cancer eclipse is asking you to think about the goals you may have and progress you may wish to make with all of these life areas but in particular with that of spirituality. Don't just think about the month ahead, think about the next two years and set goals to manifest in increments - starting with this next lunar month and the next six months and the next set of eclipses. Powerful Pluto and Saturn dance opposite this house in your third house of your mind and communication. You may be asked to rethink how you think about all of these ninth house matters that this solar eclipse is highlighting. Remember Scorpio you are unafraid of diving deep beneath the surface and you are the sign of great transformation so it is likely that you will experience great shifts in these areas of life over the next two years with more ease than most. With that in mind, plant the seeds of change now.

Sagittarius/Sagittarius rising:

Sagittarius this Cancer solar eclipse is highlighting your eighth house of other people's money - joint finances of all kinds - and sex, merging and transformation. Meanwhile both Pluto and Saturn oppose this eclipse in your second house of your personal finances, income, possessions, your values and self-esteem. Over the next two years your finances will transform, both in terms of your personal finances and any joint finances. You will find balance between these two areas of life and you will also find that some aspects of your personal finances (how you make your money) will be completely transformed, with necessary endings for new beginnings. At this eclipse focus on joint finances and all the other eighth house areas. What are your goals for these areas of life? What big shifts would you like to create in the next two years/come 2020? Think carefully before you set goals and plant the seeds of change which will blossom over time.

Capricorn/Capricorn rising:

Capricorn this solar eclipse falls in your seventh house of partnerships of all kinds. Just like your opposing sign of Cancer who rules this eclipse, you will find that the next two years brings some significant changes in terms of your personal identity and the very essence of who you are and your partnerships (platonic, romantic, professional). You are already dealing with Pluto and Saturn at this time who are dancing together in your sign and in some cases perhaps causing you some destruction, or chaos. Remember that any loss or destruction you experience at this time is purely to set you free, so you can experience a sweet new beginning. and embark upon a new chapter of life. Capricorn at this solar eclipse you need to focus on your partnerships yes, but also on the relationship you have with yourself. How does the relationship you have with yourself impact your relationships with others? Sow the seeds of change for a better relationship with yourself and others. It may not materialize overnight but you can take baby steps this month and over the next six months so by your birthday season you are ready to dive into co-creating a new season of life with the cosmos.

Aquarius/Aquarius rising:

Aquarius this solar eclipse highlights your sixth house of your day to day work, routine and lifestyle and your health - mind/body and soul. Meanwhile Pluto and Saturn dance together in your twelfth house of the hidden, healing and work you do behind the scenes and secret projects. There is balance to be found between these two life areas over the next two years and as tough as it may be you must let Pluto and Saturn do the work in that twelfth house to help you do what you need to in private so you can be in best health - mind, body and soul and so you can also enjoy bringing secret projects and dreams to fruition in your working life. At this solar eclipse focus on the day to day - your daily lifestyle - work - routine - service to others. Ask yourself if all of the latter truly serves your health -mind, body and soul. Check in with yourself as to the shifts you would like to experience in these areas of life in six months time and set intentions accordingly intending that the next month will see the first of these shifts and manifestations.

Pisces/Pisces rising:

Pisces this eclipse lands in your fifth house of true love, creativity, fun and children. These are the areas which the cosmos is asking you to set intentions in and make changes in over the next two years. With Saturn and Pluto dancing opposite this eclipse in your eleventh house of friendships, groups, your soul tribe and your hopes, wishes and dreams, you may experience some tension between these two areas of life. In some ways you may be asked to make changes to either your soul tribe or your hopes, wishes and dreams so that you can actually manifest in relation to all the areas of life ruled by the fifth house. You must embrace this tension and any loss or endings knowing it is necessary for your evolution and acts like a purge, bringing an end to whatever may be decaying so that you can enter a new chapter of life. By 2020 life will have changed in all the areas of life governed by these two houses. But for now, focus on the next month and the next six months and the fifth house themes the eclipse brings to your attention. Set intentions with structure, boundaries and keeping in mind reality.

 

 

Solar eclipse in Cancer July 12/13 2018: Every end is a new beginning - the magic in the message of the mess

Ambi Sitham

solareclipsecancer.png

Hello lovely ones and happy nearly solar eclipse in Cancer!

This solar eclipse in Cancer takes place on Thursday 12th July 2018 at 7.48pm PST (adjust for your timezone) and falls at 20 degrees of Cancer.

You can check your charts to see if you have any planets between 18 - 22 degrees of Cancer as these will be directly pinged by the solar eclipse.

Generally speaking however, for the purposes of this eclipse, all we really need to know is where Cancer rules in our unique charts.

I say this because this week's solar eclipse is the first solar eclipse in Cancer since 2009 and marks the start of the Cancer/Capricorn set of eclipses which will take us through to 2020.

So for the purposes of our cosmic coaching, all we really need to know is the life areas which this eclipse is activating and which will be activated over the next two years.

So as long as you know what Cancer rules in your unique chart, you are good - you don't need to get too caught up in exact degrees etc for this eclipse.

Cancer/Cancer risings and Capricorn/Capricorn risings - this is a very fated couple of years coming up for you guys - life will look very different come 2020!

But regardless of our zodiac sign, as always with eclipses, they bring much needed change and transformation to the area of our lives ruled by the eclipse sign.

In this case it is watery, emotional Cancer who is ruled by the moon herself.

As many of you will know, in the natural zodiac (which applies to all of us) Cancer rules the fourth house of home, family, domestic life and the private/domestic us, as well as all the other areas of life that naturally accompany the themes of family and home.

Whenever an eclipse occurs in a set of zodiac signs, it means that the collective consciousness - aka the world at large - will be dealing with the polarity and finding balance between the two areas of life which are being 'eclipsed'.

In this case, over the next two years we will see big changes globally with regards to family life, homes (houses and house ownership in particular) and career/success, power, governments and the patriarchal powers that be.

These two areas of life oppose each other in everyone's lives with home and family being at the bottom of our chart (denoting our private selves) and our careers/status being at the top of our charts (denoting our public selves) 

I think it is fair to say that we all seek to find balance between home/family life/our private selves and our careers/status/our public identities (or is just me?!)

However over the next two years the collective consciousness is going to be dealing with this and I believe we are going to see many big changes in terms of how we all 'do life' - both home and work, and much needed changes are afoot - amen to that!

So what does this mean for this eclipse and each of us?

The first in the new set of eclipses (such as this one which sees the beginning of the Cancer/Capricorn set of eclipses) is considered to wipe the slate clean and to push us into a new chapter.

A solar eclipse is of course a New Moon and New Moons are traditionally about beginnings and a solar eclipse has the power of several New Moons rolled into one (hence why we tend to set goals to manifest for the six months ahead with a solar eclipse).

However a solar eclipse also often points to endings.

Just as the Sun gets eclipsed from sight of earth, so too something ends in our lives or someone leaves our lives to make space for a new beginning.

In this particular case this energy of endings - death - or loss of some sort - is amplified by the position of powerful Pluto, who sits in Capricorn opposite the Sun and Moon in Cancer, and brings tension to this eclipse - and indeed an ending of sorts.

Because Pluto is 'death' and especially in a harsh opposition aspect he signifies a 'death' or ending of sorts for transformation and a rebirth (he rules both of these themes too).

I cannot explain to you how utterly aligned it is that Pluto is in this position at the time of this first eclipse in the Cancer/Capricorn set!

Each of us will of course be experiencing different energies in our lives at this particular time.

As a result we will feel this eclipse differently according to where we are on our soul's journey and what is happening in our lives at this time.

However, whether we see it this month or not, whether we are celebrating or commiserating, the fact is that we are all experiencing one season of life ending so that a new one can be born.

Now for some this may well be celebratory but that doesn't mean there is no ending, or even 'loss' of sorts.

To share an example - one of our beloved community wrote me on our Facebook Members only group to say that she is getting married to her Cancerian beloved on the eclipse (talk about cosmically aligned!).

So she is clearly experiencing a celebration and a new beginning, but it also signifies an ending and in some ways the 'death' aka ending of at least some aspects of her life as she knew it.

Now this is a good, happy thing but nonetheless it signifies an end of sorts and a beginning.

Life is a circle and every ending is a new beginning.

And every new beginning comes from some other new beginnings ending...

As I always say, change is the only constant in life.

The lunar windows and cosmic cycles are simply here to help us navigate those changes and to work with the energies to let what is decaying die, and to allow for the new beginnings to be embraced.

At this Solar Eclipse there are beautiful harmonious aspects in place which soften the tenseness of the Pluto opposition and shows us that in fact, even if we are experiencing some kind of angst, loss, sorrow or tension, in truth - as per the Soulstrology theme for this Solar Eclipse,

there is magic in the message of any mess we experience.

These harmonious aspects occur between Venus and Saturn (stability for love and finances) Venus and Uranus (freedom, innovation and much needed change with regards to love and finances) and finally, but perhaps most importantly, Saturn and Uranus - offering stability in times of change and helping us to navigate the changes of eclipse season properly.

With four planets in retrograde motion this eclipse may feel different than other eclipses, in terms of the immediacy of changes/shifts.

We may not experience all of the changes immediately, we may not even realize which seeds of change were being planted this month, but we will certainly see them flower over the next six months.

Our job at this eclipse is to adopt cosmic consciousness to whatever is happening in our lives right now, as well as the life areas ruled by Cancer in our lives.

That may mean allowing what is decaying to die, this may be people, relationships, situations, even our own patterns of behavior and psyche.

It may mean allowing loss or death of sorts for a new beginning, or rebirth.

It may mean joyfully embracing a new chapter knowing that it also signifies an ending of sorts.

It may mean complete destruction and a muddled mess, but if that is the case you just need to ride out the eclipse waves knowing there is magic in the message of the mess and knowing you are being supported and aided in making these positive changes in your lives.

You just need to allow what happens to happen and look for the lessons, the messages, the magic in any mess and know that muddled times create miracles just as much as smooth seas.

Your Cancer Solar Eclipse Soulstrology Scopes are coming on a separate post and I hope that they help you navigate this eclipse with cosmic consciousness for your unique sign (don't forget to read for both your Sun and Rising sign).

Happy Solar Eclipse!

Wishing you all sweet new beginnings and magic and miracles to arise from the ashes of any messes or muddles.

Love,

Venus in Virgo July 11th - August 6th 2018: Vigilance is a virtue

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

I hope this finds you well and ready for the solar eclipse!

More on that soon... but first off on today's cosmic activity which sees Venus move into Virgo where she will be for approximately three and a half weeks.

I set out at the bottom of this post the Soulstrology do's and don'ts of this transit as well as the Soulstrology zodiac guide which will tell you where this transit is taking place in your chart (remember to read for both your sun and rising sign if you know the latter).

Turning now to the Soulstrology theme of this particular Venus in Virgo transit - that vigilance is a virtue which can help us in both love and with money.

Virgo is the sign of service, order and humility and in love and with financial matters this sign is prone to be cautious, diligent and virtuous.

Venus in Virgo brings all of these qualities to us over the next three weeks of her transit which also coincides with eclipse season.

Love and money are for many people two of the most challenging areas of life.

We all want both, right? We want abundance and we want love.

But how we go about seeking both does not truly serves us in our goals.

During this eclipse season where the cosmic seeds of change are being planted for the next six months (or the cosmic winds of change will blow changes in our direction) we are each asked to take a note out of virtuous Virgo's book.

To do this means adopting the Soulstrology theme of this Venus in Virgo transit - that vigilance is a virtue and to be vigilant and virtuous with matters of the heart and finances.

As I mentioned above, so often we want to manifest certain things emotionally, creatively or financially (all the domain of Venus) yet we do not necessarily have the right approach which means we can manifest these things.

We need to adopt the light of Virgo - the attention to detail, the humility, the care, the vigilance which means they don't take things for granted.

We need to adopt these traits with regards to our love lives (whether we are single or coupled up), our finances and creative projects.

Now these eclipses may throw a curveball at us but that is not something we can control.

However what we can control is our reaction.

And this is a key point as we need to respond rather than react.

What does this mean and how does this tie into the Soulstrology theme for this Venus in Virgo transit?

Being vigilant is defined as,

'the action or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties'

It is also defined as,

'the quality or state of being wakeful and alert'

Each of us needs to be adopting both the definitions over the next few weeks but being mindful of falling into the shadow of Virgo worry wart fear when it comes to adopting the former definition.

This means in practice being PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE when it comes to the Virgo ruled parts of each of our unique charts (and our finances and love lives)

Being proactive means taking hold of the reins and steering the proverbial horse in the direction you want it to go in. It means taking action ahead of time to protect and/or preserve our finances, our creative projects, our love lives.

It also means that if anything does happen - aka the poop hits the fan with an eclipse curveball  - we do not react out of fear but rather we ground ourselves and steady our horse and then respond in time with a game plan.

Man I wish I knew what I know now years ago so I wasn't so blind and reactive and didn't get so badly bitch slapped by the cosmos, but hey, if I didn't go through it, I wouldn't have grown through it and I wouldn't be here now being a channel for Soulstrology!

But over to you guys - maybe this message can help stop you in your reactivity and instead be proactive and respond to life rather than react.

Maybe it will also help you think diligently with vigilance about the Virgo ruled parts of each of your lives as well as your love lives, finances and creative projects and help you to harness the power of the eclipses to manifest what you desire.

Vigilance is a virtue and it is a virtue which pays off...

Sending you all love and will be back tomorrow with your Solar eclipse blog and Soulstrology Scopes.

Love,

Ps don't forget to read on for the Soulstrology do's and don'ts and zodiac guide to this transit below!

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.

Virgo/Virgo 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!
