On an Individual level, this is a time to tune-in and honor whatever is stirring within, and positioning for *rebirth* in the near future. We are living during an incredible convergence of energy & cycles. All is vital, all is necessary, and the time is now ~ as we are deeply supported to seed the intention for Self, as well as Community & Mother Earth. Join us to celebrate Monday!

3/23 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. Its Highest expression would be to focus on your deep-dive into your Soul, self-discovery & inner development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your findings. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you’ve made or want to make soon. Dig – you will find more than you think you’re ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy’s flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit – you cannot truly change the way other people think – you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way … and it will, for those who are tuned in to your level. Try to only focus on you and your own new direction.

3/24 ~ Mercury (thinking) ~oppose~ Jupiter (learning):
Any opposition requires us to work with two distinct energies and get them to work together for the good of all involved. It is also a MidPoint which allows you that 180* view from the other side of your starting point (roughly 6-months ago). Mercury & Jupiter are working out the push-pull within you between your Mind & Consciousness, between your Thinking & Beliefs, between your Thoughts & Imagination, between the Tedious Details and the Grand Vision. Because of all this, it would be tremendously beneficial to play amongst a group of like-hearted souls with varying points of view, mavericks who follow their intuition as well as humble healers who also buck status quo by following their intuitive knowing, something we all have the capacity for. This is great for what I call *Jam Sessions*, when my colleagues & I get together to discuss our ideas & insights about our professional goals, something like that is a great use of this energy: plan, strategize, discuss with others, get input and feedback, bounce ideas around and be open and receptive to others’ points of view (they may think of something you didn’t). Make sure it is a Circle, where all opinions are valued even if not shared. This is a good one for learning something new and looking at things from another angle, completely.

3/25 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~conjunct~ Sun (source & essential Self):
This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it is all about the creation! Use this Solar infusion to brighten and illuminate your self, your surroundings or your creative projects. This expands your magnetic field and opportunities result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it’s based on your new values and priorities. It is the beginning of a new creative cycle. Love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others. Invite or allow support and guidance from men.

3/12 ~ Mercury (communication & expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits & reality):
This energy is better for deep thinking & personal processing rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy and communications with others may be a little more challenging than usual. You may feel like people don’t understand what you’re trying to convey or that you’re coming across more negative than positive. This is not a good energy for business negotiations unless every detail is very clear to all involved. This energy tends to make you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward apathy, pessimism and/or depression, that’s Saturn & Mercury, which makes it more mental than literal. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what’s still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but it is the nudge that encourages you to begin the necessary steps and be okay with small measures of progress for now. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the mental & emotional debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals, then strategize about the details of bringing it to fruition.

3/17 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you may have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance & reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is making negative assumptions that there is no support for you when, in truth, you haven’t asked for any and *help must be invited*. Saturn brings up our relationship to Time, and some people may feel restricted, as if life/other/outer is too demanding and there’s never any/enough time just for the individual. This activation is a push to grow out of comfort zone and into new territory personally. It’s time to hold your own structure in some way and reclaim your Inner Authority (also Saturn’s domain) to direct your life. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there’s no more “wiggle room” or the grace period has expired. Rather than have a meltdown, take a nap and resolve to wake up with a plan, a strategy for taking the next step, even if that means simply asking for help or guidance from someone older & wiser. It’s time to deepen your dedication and commit to your Self in a whole new way. Recognize any current limitations and work with the resources at hand for now. The Sun usually illuminates the core essential nature or Self, so see where you may be stuck and need to break out of a rut of some sort. Also, trust that taking charge, making a decision and choosing a direction is *inviting help* from the Universe to support that new direction.

3/18 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources):
This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas. You may finally be able to express ideas that have been percolating in your head, some people say “I love you” at this time, or articulate their feelings in deeper, more expressive ways. It’s really *juicy* for your Inner Artist, this is the beginning of expressing your creative ideas in altogether new & different ways than ever before. Allow your Imagination to free-flow. Play with ideas with no attachment to outcome. Take advantage and explore all that this energy stirs within you, but don’t give in to over-thinking/over-processing things. These connections are richer, giving you access to deeper personal growth & development through a new understanding of how all the events of your life work together for good, ultimately. You can see the necessity of certain challenges and clearly see your own personal mastery thus far. Celebrate and choose to create some new thought patterns that integrate and reflect more beauty throughout your life.

3/5 ~ Mars (energy & drive) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina & patience):
This is a delicious & potent combo! This is like a great Father/Son working on a project energy. The Son has all the muscle, energy & enthusiasm and the Father is the brilliant, steady man who directs that energy and teaches in every moment. Internally, this is your Inner Authority guiding your innate desire nature to the tangible results it so craves. Saturn brings the long term goals to the table and Mars’ energy can fuel your efforts creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, these two get together is more the ‘tortoise and the hare’ energy, which can be frustrating for some. However, they are in a blessed position to each other and if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported.

3/6 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, than mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.

3/8 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy provokes the need to delve deeper into the ideas or information being presented at this time, whether personal or professional. You will want to dig deeper, ask the hard questions and gather insights that are deeper and more profound than usual. In your professional/public life, you may find yourself doing better due-diligence and in your personal/private life, you may find yourself digging a little deeper into your own mental patterns & personal history (that has led to ‘now’). As you make these connections and begin to grasp these new insights, they will gain traction and you will become more grounded in your own Truth. We all get excited about those kind of ah-ha moments, and you may find yourself wanting to share them with others who may or may not be ready to hear such deep Truths or have the conscious awareness to even process them, so use some discernment around who and when you share these new-found insights.

3/9 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your current circumstance for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been challenging you for a while now. It’s great for purifying, cleaning & clearing your personal space, as well as organizing your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment, for the good of all involved, is necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and deep self-reflection. Superficial once-overs will not do, you must address the root cause for where you find yourSelf at this time in your life and decide if it is working for you or against you.

Feb 26 – Mar 4, 2017: Weekly Forecast + Eclipse

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives


Phoenix from The Firepit Gallery

NOTE from Kelly ~ Energetically, we have an incredible week ahead of us! This week starts with a Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse and ends with Venus Retrograding in Aries. We are still in the Eclipse Portal and the Endings/New Beginnings abound left & right, both personal and collective! Be mindful and heart-centered as much as possible. There is incredible *magic* available in this coming week alone but it is also a potent mix that must be consciously directed to be useful & effective. New Moons often facilitate an ’emptying out’ that feels like an endless void to some but remember, all seeds germinate in the darkness and you are in a safe and completely natural process of life (transformation/evolution), facilitated by the Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse (2/26).

If you can find some time/space in Nature, in Intentional Solitude, then you may be able to take advantage of this womb-like place we find ourselves to develop your own vision of going forward in 2017. If you cannot get away, take a mental vacation or meditate to open up the flow and activate your imagination. Invite clarity around that which is complete in your life, as well as what is about to be birthed. See this time (and next 6-12 months) as the culmination of all your experiences for 1 – 9 – 19-years, and Pisces as the end-of-the-end, yet also a new beginning (New Moon) of a brand new pattern (Solar Eclipse).

The Virgo/Pisces axis teaches all about our humanity, as well as the God inside; your Spirit in human form. An incredible upgrade to our individual & collective systems happened during (most recently) the years: 1997-98 and 2006-08 and now, 2015-17. Think of your life pre- and post-2012 and what kind of energetic upgrades you have been able to experience consciously, or now, looking back, some often happen unconsciously and only become obvious in hindsight. The blessing of knowing, or having even a basic awareness of, your own personal patterns is that you get to consciously co-create your future.

Many of you have reported feeling incredible shifts within and around you since August 2015. I recommend reviewing this article of mine from that time as we wrap up the Virgo/Pisces Eclipse series. You will likely find amazing insights & ah-ha’s and recognize where you have totally evolved, as well as where you may still have some personal work to do. It’s all good. There is no “time” in GOD!! And everyone receives the message when they are ready to receive it. Check out this article, especially if you have strong Virgo/Pisces and/or Gemini/Sag in your chart. This is a MAJOR Completion for one and all, no one is exempt, but it’s particularly potent for you personally. Spirit in human form evolves, like skin cells sloughing off, we too are moving to our natural next level. Do you trust your Self? your Universe? Nature?
Article: Break to Realign & Integrate a New Rhythm ~ Virgo/Pisces

Venus Retrograding may feel like an altogether different kind of ’emptying out’ ~ especially in your relationship and/or resource departments of life. Once again, I invite you to join us for FREE TeleCircle ~ Intro to the New Venus Cycle 2017. Register and check out my Article HERE to learn more about Venus Retro in Aries.

2/26 ~ Mars (passion & purpose) ~conjunct~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
This energy is a volatile mix but can be directed constructively. When these two get together, it can provoke you to be completely intolerant of restrictions and gives you an undeniable urge to break free in some way, shape or form. It’s time to do things in a completely new way. Uranus is the Awakener and Mars rules who you are and what you want on one level, and your Divine Masculine on another level (the part of you that gets your ideas out there, holds your boundaries & negotiates on your behalf). This is a break-to-realign moment but in an initiatory way (rather than a challenging growth moment), it’s time to start a new Path, Passion or Purpose that is born from within. This is a brand spanking new beginning for you (personally) and one that may even surprise you, let alone those around you, so stay loose yet alert. If you have a solid sense of Self and are clear about your deepest desires, then this energy is just what you need to finally (and permanently) break old limiting patterns of behavior which no longer suit who you have become. You may have considerable energy, so you should direct it consciously or into a project of your own making, something you created, something truly unique and that will ultimately reflect the Truth of who/what you are. At its worst, it is violent thrashing, reactionary and indiscriminate destructiveness.
*NOTE* ~ The last 2-years should inform you (2015-2017). Mars connects with Uranus in Aries 5-times during 2011-2018, which is re-setting a lot of buttons for anyone with Cardinal Signs (Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn) in their chart. The dates of their connection, in an initiatory way are: 4.3.2011 ~ 3.22.2013 ~ 3.11.2015 ~ 2.27.2017 ~ 2.13.2019. You may be able to discern a pattern to the themes that arise for you around these dates.)

2/27 ~ Mars (desires & actions) ~oppose~ Jupiter (expansion & learning):
This energy is perfect for working on your “grand vision” and that is exactly what you’ll “feel” like doing under this influence. Anything or anyone that blocks you from that should be consciously (and kindly) dealt with and then get to it! Mars is action and Jupiter is expansion and they are dancing together. It can be a selfish, undirected dance where no one has fun or it can be the beginning of something huge! You can use this energy to access the single-mindedness of Mars to accomplish the huge goals & aspirations of Jupiter. Or, now that you know who you are and what you want, you can finally act on a greater vision for your life. Either way, pace your Self with these two as you can bite off more than you can physically handle. Remember, you can/do change your consciousness in an instant, but physical anything takes time to come into being. The potential downfall of this energy is to allow the Mars ego (Edging-God-Out) to lead when it serves a better purpose being the strength, not necessarily the strategy. And allow Jupiter’s connection to the Higher Truth for you, guide your choices & actions on this new Path. The Jupiter in you sees the bigger picture, your Infinite potential that your SoulSelf longs to fulfill. Get out of your own way. Watch the inclination to “overdo” EVERYTHING – spending, physical activity, over-promising/under-delivering etc. Stay within your physical limits but expand limits of your consciousness. Robert Hand says, “The sense of timing of your actions may leave you and others amazed and sure that you’re lucky. But really you have succeeded because you have a complete understanding of the situation.” Tune into and follow your own instincts. Practice & improvise often so you learn how they work at this higher frequency.

3/1 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~conjunct~ Neptune (delusions & illusions):
This transit tends to make you very sensitive (rational or not) to others. If you are one of those people who tends to put everyone else’s needs before your own, watch out, because this makes that urge even stronger. Be aware of two things: (1) often, people who focus so much on others, to the exclusion of their own needs, do it because there is something about their own life they are not ready to face; and (2) you could get lost in your so-called altruism to the point where you lose touch with reality, thus opening yourself to physical danger. This energy is best used to take some Intentional Solitude and meditate/contemplate your own world, hopes & dreams. If you can be completely detached in your charity work and it uplifts rather than drains you at this time, then go for it. I use this little motivation to decide – is your life so perfect and abundant that you can afford to spend so much time and energy on another’s life? If so, GREAT! Go for it! If not, however, then “charity begins at home” – get to work on YOU! No one can care for your mind or body (literally) except you and we are supported to find new ways of doing that. Radical Self-Care is as you personally define it but find what replenishes you so that you don’t miss out on much *magic* drowning in a sea of confusion (within or around you).

3/2 ~ Jupiter (Your Truth & Story) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
2 of 3: 12/26 ~ 3/2 ~ 9.27.2017)
This is another potent and relatively rare combo (every 12-years) that brings expansion & liberation into your life, meaning nothing will ever be the same again. These two, in their own unique ways, like to shake things up and push you out of any rut you may be in at this time. Neither of them do well with maintaining the status quo, Jupiter wants to expand in new ways and tell a new story, while Uranus wants to break out of the old and step into the new in some way. Naturally, this becomes most obvious in your relationships (personal or professional) where things have grown stagnant. If you have obligations that have run their course, try to be proactive on your own behalf by initiating the necessary changes consciously, lest you get blindsided or create more to deal with than necessary. Though it may “seem” sudden, it really has been building over time and with these two, you are reminded that the old way simply will not work anymore. I’ve often reminded folks that ‘when you change, everyone around you has to change or go away’ – it’s the natural order. The truth is that, this kind of integration can be positive, in that, you may not know how or what to change, but the Universe does and it will provide the customize catalyst one way or another. Your job is not to throw the baby out with the bath water though. There are some solid aspects of your Truth and belief system (Jupiter) which also have a natural evolution (Uranus) that takes your life to the next level organically at this time. Be as loving with your Self and others as you possibly can, as you work through what you know and what you’re learning, stay open & receptive to new ideas and trust your intuition along the way. Remember, intuition is like a muscle, the more your work-it, the stronger you get. It’s time to do things differently, your Truth & Story has evolved and changed over 12-years and now it is time to breathe some fresh air into the story you’re telling by the life you’re living.

3/4 ~ Mercury (communication & expression) ~conjunct~ Neptune (imagination & spirituality):
This is a mixed blessing, but definitely an initiation either way. It can be miraculous for creativity, art or imaginative exploration. I like to consider this one for a personal ‘conversation with God’, your Higher Self, your SoulSelf. As with any initiation, a completion must come first, and in this case with Mercury, it’s time to expand your thinking in some way – go deeper. Invite your Ancestors, Angels & Animal Guides to answer your questions, listen for the answers and let your Invisible Spirit Helpers guide you at this time. Communing with them is much more supported than seeking help sourced outside your Self. So if you need to think about the mundane or confront someone about something which requires complete honesty from both parties, things could get a little hazy & confused thanks to Neptune here. There is always a veil to contend with when dealing with Neptune, but you have to know which side of it you are on so you are in alignment with the Nature around you (3D vs 5D). This energy tends to color reality, misleading you to think you are being perfectly clear in your communication or what you’re trying to express, while others are completely lost. It’s better to say nothing, rather than be completely misunderstood.

Venus in *ARIES*
Activate & Reclaim Your Personal Power, Passion & Purpose
February 3, 2017 -thru- June 6, 2017
Retrograde March 4, 2017 / Direct April 15, 2017
Review, Reflect & Set Conscious Intentions for Release & Reclamation
*Venus Rules* …
~ LOVE ~
unifying energetic force that exists in/through all life
the invisible essence which links all life and transcends language or species
what humanity contributes thru thoughts, feelings, words & deeds creates a culture
what you spend your resources on reveals what you value and what your priorities are

Venus & Your Magnetics ~ Venus rules everything we truly care about and how we go about creating or acquiring it. Among other things, it rules love, art & beauty, all things that can be physical but the feeling they give us when we experience them is a subtle, magnetic energy that draws us in and speaks directly to the heart. The heart is the only electro-magnetic organ in our bodies and directly links us to both the inner core as well as and the outer field which surrounds & protects Earth. When Earth or its atmosphere are zapped with intense energy, we definitely feel it too because we are eternally connected. The communication of the heart is *feeling*, and post-2012, we are learning how to feel at completely new levels and in radically new ways. Venus can help you, on a personal level, understand magnetics in a whole new way which will ultimately support you in co-creating a life based on what is most vital to your life and true to your heart. We are not creating the old way we used to, now it is much more about creating an inviting space to magnetize in the heart’s true desires.

Venus & Its Dual Nature ~ It rules both earthy Taurus and breezy Libra. Taurus asks, “what is it worth?” and Libra asks, “where is the balance & harmony for all involved?” You can see how we swing from literal, material value to perceived value according to an individual’s preferences and priorities. When Venus is expressing Taurus values, it is all about the physical experience of beauty, while with Libra it is all about the essence. Either way, in your chart, Venus rules what you are magnetized to and what you are repelled by, naturally.

Venus Cycles – Past/Future ~ If we track the last few Venus cycles, one way to look at it is that we got a completely new identity activated when Venus Retrograded through *ARIES* (2009-2010) which was followed by cultivating new values & priorities, based on this “new identity” which opened up access to our innate power to co-create our lives. As Venus Retrograded through *SCORPIO* (2010-2011), we got to cleanse & clear any deeply buried karmic debris blocking full expression of clean, authentic power and true self-worth. As Venus Retrograded through *GEMINI* (2012), we got to explore the infinite ways we can express ourselves at this new level of consciousness and release out-dated thinking & obsolete processes. As Venus Retrograded through *CAPRICORN* (2013-2014), we got to put a brand new structure in place that actually helps us make better decisions and create more fundamental stability, as well as personal security, based on the new values & priorities. If we’ve anchored the fundamentals in a secure way, then this recent Venus Cycle thru *LEO* (2015) will be a final exam of sorts on working with our magnetics for sure, with both rewards & revelations about what we magnetize & repel, naturally. 2017 brings us full circle back to *ARIES* Retro & we can rebirth yet again! Venus Retrogrades every 18-months, which means that our *Values & Priorities* shift, in small ways, on a fairly regular basis, but in huge ways every 8-years. Getting a rhythm to this, internally, will help you flow with your own personal evolution with far less fear or anxiety & much more trust in the natural order of things, which includes your own natural evolution.

Venus in ARIES ~ Consider this 4+ month period (Feb – June 2017) as an introduction to your newly Initiated Self! You have been through a full cycle of evolution since the last Venus Retro thru ARIES (2009). Explore a little. Review the last 8-yrs of your life. How have you grown & evolved? How have your values & priorities shifted regarding your personal independence, individual power, deepest passion & true purpose? What is complete and what is initiating where your relationships, finances & magnetics are concerned? What is all that ‘worth’ to you (reflect on both then & now)? What is the difference in how you expressed your Self in 2009, and how you want to express in new ways NOW (2017)? What have you learned about your Self? What have you learned about your immediate friends, family & community, and your place (and preferences) within each connection? Are your relationships a vibrational match? Do they embody conscious equal partnership and the reciprocity that feels delicious, sincere, joyful & balanced?

It’s also a good time to look at the Houses & Planets with Aries energy activated to know what specifics are coming up for you personally. But in general, we are all going to have to deal with Venus’ extended stay in Aries, with a quick, but deep, dive into Pisces (Jan 30-Feb 3 and again April 2-27). We are now going to take the Authentic Self that Leo expresses to the world, and turn inward for the Sacred Self that Aries births into the world. With Venus inherently Feminine and Aries, ruled by Mars, expressing her Masculine, this is an opportunity for Sacred Union within, on a completely new level (since 2009 and beyond).

Like I said, Venus is all about your innate magnetics ~ what you naturally magnetize & repel ~ and Aries is all about being brave, walking by faith and getting things started. When we have a deep passion and true purpose, we lead by example and that is the energy within you being reviewed & renewed through this Venus Retro. As you are able to anchor this renewed sense of Self, Identity & Purpose, that you’ve developed over the last 8-yrs, there will be new opportunities for new relationships & collaborations … but you may have to lead! Remember, when you know who you are and what you want, and you are willing to be individually responsible, you inspire others to carry their own weight and be responsible for their own energy/vibration. It’s always you is an old adage of mine that means, whatever we are magnetizing into our lives is but a reflection of what is within. You take your power back by being responsible for what is within & around you and that automatically shifts the outer world in brilliant, beautiful & completely unexpected ways.

Essentially, it is time to own, activate & truly embody your Inner Athlete ~ that part of you that is naturally motivated from within to instinctively move, achieve excellence or experience something first. Again, the last cycle (Leo) may have introduced us to how we express ourselves creatively and if/how our playmates match us with their Light, now Aries is going to show how our relationships reflect a common passion & purpose (or lack thereof). We still need direct access to our Inner Child/Innocent Child’s Heart, which is that part of you capable of being alive, happy & fully present in the moment and fully engaged with life, but now you will channel that into a Deep Passion & True Purpose that reflects who you really are and what you really want, here & now.

ReBirth & ReInvent Your Self … You should have felt the subtle nudge from the Universe (for some time now) that your Being (Self/Aries) and your priorities/values (Venus) must get in alignment. Well, now the nudge will not be so subtle. Venus Retrograde in Aries is a golden opportunity to RE-Invent Your Self and Re-Commit to Your Self. You are going to want to be fully anchored sooner than later because we are also dealing with some major Aries energy collectively, thanks to Uranus waking us up (2010-2018) and Chiron is going to follow, with more healing & education (2018-2027) that will probably be necessary for humanity to truly embody its true Divine Nature. It is vital that you are clear about who you are, at your core, so that you can maintain an authentic identity of your own, as the collective gets its ‘re-invention’. Who are you? What do you really want? Why do you want it? What’s the deeper motivation behind your desires? Do your thoughts, words and deeds reflect your deepest, core values? Do you spend your resources of time, energy and money on memories or materials? As you step up and into this New Self, these things are going to naturally change. Don’t be alarmed but excited, curious & trusting of your SoulSelf.

More than ever, we have to operate from Heart-Center, you have to actually care to get engaged and so often, you must clear away all that you do not care about, so that what you do care about has more room to grow, evolve & expand. The Retro period should afford you time to *Review* your personal self-care routines, as well as your primary Love or Work relationships. It’s time to stand up for your true Self and let the chips fall where they may. This Venus work is going to be very personal for those with Aries/Libra and Cancer/Capricorn activated in their charts. Things that were important to you 8-years ago are probably not so vital now, and things that were not even on your list of priorities may have moved to the top. In this case, Aries means your identity, passion & purpose have all evolved over the last 8-years and adjustments to your personal rhythm & routine, as well as your primary relationships (personal or professional) should begin to reflect the *upgrade*.

Here is another thing to consider. 2012 was a pivotal time and it seems our consciousness was, and continues to be, expanded since then. Venus’ Retro that year in Gemini introduced us to many expanded ideas, higher-level thoughts & wildly new concepts but it was difficult to ground any one, let alone all the ones that caught our attention. Since then, we got to use the Capricorn cycle to create *containers* for many of those new ideas, concepts & communities. Plus, we got to fortify our personal fundamentals in way that allowed the Leo cycle to guide that renewed authenticity and connection to Heart right into place. Now we begin the new Aries cycle which will allow you to fully step up and into your renewed identity. This will organically shift everything/everyone around you.

Venus Retrograde ~ March 4 – April 15, 2017
Review, Reflect & Set Conscious Intentions for Release & Reclamation
January 29 – March 4, 2017 ~ Introduction to New You & Your New Priorities
March 4 – April 15, 2017 ~ Re-View, Re-Evaluate, Re-Vision, Re-Examine
April 15 – June 6, 2017 ~ Integration of the New You & Your New Priorities
June 2017 – Forward ~ Anchoring the *ARIES* Energy & Initiating NEW Cycle

Venus Retrograde ~ Activate & Reclaim Your Personal Power, Passion & Purpose. Venus is now covering the ground which will be reviewed between March 4th (retro) and April 15th (direct) and anchored during Summer 2017. The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, in Venus’ case, values, priorities, magnetics & resources. It brings these issues to the surface, essentially getting your attention in a way that (hopefully) will prompt you to want to explore more deeply (retrograde) before charting the course of future forward movement (direct/out of shadow) when you will have acquired more clarity and sure-footedness. With Venus last doing this in 2009 (Retro in Aries), how have your values & priorities evolved over the last 8-years where being your Self-Sufficient & Independent Self is concerned? How would you like to evolve over the next 8-years? Venus energy focuses your attention on what you deeply value or what you give your resources to, which tells the Universe what you truly value. How did you spend your time, energy & money over the last cycle? How will/must that change going forward so that it better expresses what’s truly in your Heart?

This Venus *Retrograde* Cycle is Time to …
Reconnect with all *6* of your senses
Assess your values & priorities on all levels
Renew your self-value / self-worth / self-esteem
Balance & Integrate your Divine Feminine nature
Renew your Spirit, your Faith, and your Commitment
Assess your relationships, partnerships and collaborations
Recreate your way of living – and – of living on Earth with others
Assess how you relate to your environment, people and circumstances
Review anything buried, suppressed or neglected over the last 8-years
Use your resources more consciously so you are more effective in your efforts

Try to connect with your own internal rhythm of shifting values & priorities and definitions of love, wealth and beauty, which evolve every 18-months on smaller scales, and every 8-years, on even larger scales. Things, people, circumstances ALL come and go and come back again; what/who is important yesterday may not be today or tomorrow. Once you establish the connection to your own internal rhythm, then try to get that in sync with the larger social/collective rhythms. That’s when co-creating gets really *juicy* and you get more effective, feel more beautiful and life’s more abundant all around!

Venus in *ARIES* is About …
Ability to Know & Articulate Your Personal Needs
Instinctive Self-Preservation that Negotiates Up Front

Feb 19 – 25, 2017: Weekly Forecast + Event

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives


2/20 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):
This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new & different is more like chaos & disruption, then you need to reflect to see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over & over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas can/will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open & receptive to unusual things, events or ideas and allow room for spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring this new path opening before you!

2/21 ~ Mercury (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):
This energy is great for expanding your mind, learning something new or taking a class. It’s time to plan for the future and start getting organized for when it becomes the present. However, this activation may have you feeling less disciplined and more creative, which is fine in the beginning, but eventually focus & discipline will have to be engaged to ground your creations, new ideas, thoughts or concepts. You have to ask your Self, ‘How bad do you want it?’ If you are self-aware, awake & alert, you will be able to see (and seize) the opportunities as they present themselves. It may ‘appear’ to be luck, but it’s really more that you were in alignment with the Cosmos, present & positive, and ultimately, able to trust & follow your instincts. Practice, there is no perfection. Being optimistic & looking for opportunity in every experience will magnetize the positive and naturally repel the negative, leading right where you want to be! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to create in your life at this time.

2/22 ~ Mars (lower will) ~square~ Pluto (Higher will):
This is a test of what you are made of, on the deepest core level, and will require surrender as well as focus. This energy challenges you to evolve and will make you want to push through all obstacles but you must be careful not to be so aggressive that you are stepping on anyone to get where you’re going. This is a potent energy that can facilitate major transformation in your life if you know who you are, what you want and what you are willing to sacrifice to get there. This often includes parts of your Self that may need to shift to be more effective in the here & now. This energy can bring power struggles thanks to Pluto, within or without, so be mindful because this energy is affecting everyone one way or another . This is the time to tie up any loose ends if you are close to beginning anew. If you do not finish what you already have in the works, it may get in the way of things you want to do in the future. It is time to align your true inner power with balanced outer actions & choices.

2/23 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed, fixed or stabilized in your life or environment. One expression of this energy is a tendency toward depression or apathy, but a better expression would be facing what needs to be done and following through on what you have begun. You may feel the need to organize things at home or work, or perhaps take a class or workshop of some sort that will help you attain your current goals. Either way, be focused but not too serious – balance in all things. It’s when you focus on the lack & limitation that you feel overwhelmed, and sometimes even helpless. That’s not the point of this energy. It’s just time to do some serious thinking, tend to the details, take stock and make changes accordingly, one step/one day at a time.

Note from Kelly ~ ok, I have to take advantage of the opportunity for a shameless plug *wink* for my upcoming NEW Venus Circle! Twice in the above forecast, I recommend taking a class or workshop to help you attain your current goals and Venus is the BEST planet/cycle to consciously co-create with because she always brings you more love, abundance, joy & beauty! Who can’t use more of that in life these days? We get together to master our Love, Money & Magnetics with Venus! This go-round, the overall theme is ARIES: Activate & Reclaim Your Personal Power, Deep Passion & True Purpose. Join us for the FREE TeleCircle & Intro to New Venus Cycle!

Feb 12 – 18, 2017: Weekly Forecast

2/14 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization & structure):
This energy is good for getting serious and organized because the Sun also brings some much-needed clarity. With Saturn involved, practical actions based on responsible assessments will be rewarded, whereas, blowing things off or leaving loose ends will cost you (usually fairly immediately, the instant karma way). Even if this should happen to you, it is not personal, but Saturn’s way of showing you (immediately) where your current limitations are. That’s good info to have when making choices & decisions. This activation gives you access to self-discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional goals if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of a trusted wise elder (anyone with more knowledge/experience than you ; -)) And if you can’t actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

2/16 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Mars (passion):
This is a healthy selfish energy (aka self-preservation). Do not hold back this week. If you have a big dream or serious goal you have been working toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe. This is definitely a “work” energy, however, it brings with it the caveat that it is best if you work alone on something important to you. No one else is (or ever will be) as dedicated to your goal as YOU will be, nor should you expect them to be. You are now connected to the extra energy it takes to push your goals to the next level, bringing you a sense of accomplishment while outlining the next tasks to be done. Opportunities present themselves all the time, all you have to do is be ready!! If you are given the opportunity to make a presentation, go for it! Your clarity, energy & enthusiasm will be unmatched and that’s what people respond to. Don’t choose this time to be “shy” or doubt that you’re ready – you are definitely ready … otherwise you wouldn’t be here!! One of my favorite sayings is: “At the moment of commitment, the Universe conspires to assist you!” It’s time to decide if you are committed and how truly committed you are, to your own success.
