4/22 ~ Pluto Retrograde @21* CAPRICORN:
Pluto is in a long process of purification & transformation (2008-2024) and retrogrades annually, facilitating evolution on a more subtle level, although if your chart is activated, it may not *feel* subtle. On a personal level, Pluto helps you dig up any destructive unconscious patterns, strips you raw and confronts you with who you are and how you will survive when nothing and no one else is available to help or support you. I like to think of Pluto as our ‘buried treasures’ and like diamonds, it requires a very special task to release from within and bring into the Light. Often, because Pluto rules death, rebirth & transformation, something is sacrificed for your own greater good. Although it is sometimes painful and debilitating, it doesn’t have to be, but is almost always (a) necessary and (b) ultimately *liberating*!!

Pluto is traveling through the Capricorn sector of your chart, digging deep and activating any other planets you may have in Capricorn (and Cancer/Aries & Libra by default). So, it’s good to look at this as an on-going purification & transformation of this department in life (and, subsequently the other three areas too). Pluto moves generations and great numbers of people along their evolutionary path, however, every year when it retrogrades, it turns that energy inward, giving us unique access to our own depths, where our SoulSelf resides. When it goes forward, it is a very gradual awakening process that develops from there. Transformation happens behind the scenes and often out of the prying eyes of others, as well as your own conscious monkey-mind, this is deep Soul Work that only you can do. What have you really purified & transformed this year? or what would you like to?

Use this time to set intentions for purification in the sense that you are supported to strip away the non-essential and reconnect with your purest, original intent. Change is greatly supported at this time, so anything that you are really ready, truly willing & finally able to change, can be transformed forever. Capricorn gets everyone focused on choices & responsibilities, as well as the structure of your life that supports & protects you and the overall stability of whatever House it rules.

4/24 ~ Mars (your desire) ~sextile~ Jupiter (your Truth):
This energy will help you figure out what your deepest desires and authentic Truth really are for you. If you are not sure, this expansion will illuminate the possibilities for you. This is a potent opportunity to take things to the next level. Mars often lends a boost of energy, so definitely be active, work in some physical activity (but don’t over-do it), make any presentations you need to make, negotiate any contracts or deals you need to because all is supported for you knowing who you are and what you want in a way that conveys without much effort on your part. The effort required to activate this easy energy is to actively pursue your desires, to expand your horizons by learning something new, by being around other like-minded souls and putting that extra energy behind some worthy project … YOU!

4/25 ~ Mercury Direct (communication/expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits/reality):    (3 of 3: 3/11 ~ 4/5 ~ 4/25)
This energy is good for deep thinking rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy making communications with others a little harder 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 makes 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 encourage 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 and strategize about the details of bringing it to fruition.

4/26 ~ Mars (desires) ~conjunct~ Pluto (transformation):
This is an extremely powerful combination of energy and the initiation of a new 2-year cycle. If it is properly channeled, magical results are possible. If your ego is engaged, tragic results are possible. This is ‘lower will’ versus ‘higher will’ together, increases each other’s strength and potency. So if you know who you are and what you want, then this energy can catapult you to the next level, giving you endless energy, power and drive to accomplish your goals. Restriction of any kind will make you angry & frustrated, so anticipate as much as you can and get creative. You may have to work within certain limitations, but don’t let your ego (or wanting your way) block the blessing of this transit. Any time Pluto is involved, complete transformation is at work, so go with it. Be clear about your desires, commit to release any/all blockages and own your power in a positive way, no victim consciousness lest you attract a victim circumstance.

4/15 ~ Mercury Direct @4* ARIES:
Hopefully, the review period has yielded new information and you’re ready to truly initiate the new year. Mercury extends its stay in all three Fire Signs, Sag, Aries & Leo this year – suggesting that our mind, and thus our ideas, concepts & their expressions, needs a purification or transformation of sorts, a renewal & cleansing in the most positive sense. It’s time to be creative in our thinking, to improvise & work with what you’ve got. In Aries, we want to consider our own needs first, but then still walk it all the way through (your visualization) and see how you/your choices affect those around you (near or far). We want to be independent, self-contained & free, but we still need community, collaboration & creativity with others. It’s time to see how your ideas can serve others and still support & protect you. It is a good day (with the New Moon) to set your intentions for your new embodiment of your new identity that now relates with others in new ways too, both personally & professionally. A new expression of your purpose is emerging as you step onto a completely new Path by Summer/Fall 2018.

4/15 ~ ARIES New Moon:
This is an annual Initiation of the New You, the New Year and the brand New Beginning that is available for those who choose the New, leaving the Old/Past behind, bravely stepping into the unknown. The Libra Full Moon (3/31) may have revealed where more *Internal Balance* is required for you to truly anchor this emerging Identity. It may have also revealed where more *External Balance* is required for you to maintain relationships or agreements with others (or not). Most likely, some of both will manifest. This is an annual opportunity to release imbalances within ourselves and our relationships or environment, anything that is preventing the Aries/New Beginning from unfolding naturally. The Capricorn Last Qtr Moon (4/8) illuminates what you, personally, are responsible for at this time. You are on completely new ground now and the Aries New Moon launches us all to the next level. Consider how much has been cleared and released just in the last year alone. This first *Seed Point* is vital to the next 6-12 months of growth and expansion. It is truly time to close out and release anything no longer essential to your reality or evolution. The message is: Don’t Rush and Neither Postpone. This is the week to dedicate your Self to taking responsibility for whatever you have chosen to create, then consciously prepare to go for it!

4/17 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a great energy for enjoying nature, really good food & drink, fun company and lots of laughter! This is a celebration type of energy, to be enjoyed but not to excess or to the neglect of your health or well-being. It’s very creative and activates the true Inner Artist within all of us. It’s also good to consider that you are at a MidPoint in a relationship or creative project that you started about 6-months ago (Oct/Nov 2017); is it still viable? is the Story you’re telling still true? where’s the value? is it worth it? So whether you are an artist or not, this activation can facilitate an infinitely creative mood, and expand your work immensely. Activate your imagination, think big, have fun & laugh today, but tomorrow, plan to start moving in a new direction that is more authentic for you personally.

4/17 ~ Venus (values, relationships & resources) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
Anytime Pluto’s involved the intensity levels go up and you are able to hear/feel your SoulSelf more clearly than usual. Venus brings up that which is most important to you personally, your individual values & priorities, where your relationships & resources are concerned. This is an easy angle, making purification & transformation smoother than usual too. So, how and/or what are you ready to change? How have your values & priorities changed completely in the last year or so? Use this activation to deepen your connection with those you love most and allow the relationship to evolve to a totally new level. If you’re working on your relationship with money or self-worth specifically, this activation is a good time for prayer or ritual that supports positive change and your vision for the future. Pour any intense emotions or revelations into art of any medium or do a vision board but give expression to the depths you recognize as coming to the surface of your consciousness.

4/17 ~ Saturn Retrograde @9* CAPRICORN:
This is Saturn’s first time in Capricorn since 1988-1990 and today brings its first retro in its home sign. This is a tremendous amount of stabilizing energy that you can direct consciously on your own behalf. In general, you can look to any area of your life that requires you to upgrade & fortify because it has essentially run its natural course and is more/less worn out. But you can also look to your Capricorn House, and see if the Areas of Life it represents, also may require some much-needed focus & dedication. Saturn often gets our attention by creating blockages & delays, pointing out weaknesses & oversights, and during its retrograde, there are reports of folks feeling like they are being ‘held back by the elbows’. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. A better use of Saturn’s amazing energy is to slow down and check in with your personal base. How organized are you in general? Are you naturally focused and self-directed or do you succeed more often when you have a structure? This is a time to develop or fortify your Inner Authority to make choices & decisions on your own behalf, with courage & confidence. Take time to organize your thoughts or create a plan or strategy for adjusting to the changes (seemingly) being forced on you at this time. Start with small, manageable goals because accomplishing them will also give you the momentum & fortitude to go after the bigger goals. It’s time to release fear & doubt and redefine your reality on some level, if nothing else, for the new year alone.

4/17 ~ Chiron Enters ARIES (until 2027):
Chiron was only discovered in 1977, at the end of its last run through Aries (1968-77), but you need only look back to all that was happening during those years to recognize the deep thread of wounding, and thus where the healing work lies, that runs through those alive and born during that time. That said, everyone born at that time are approaching their Chiron Return, which brings an amazing opportunity for healing & integration over the next 9+ years. And because it is happening up in the sky, it is relevant to all. No one is exempt from this opportunity to heal or integrate your Aries Houses & Planets. That said, it will also affect Libra/Cancer/Capricorn as well but from different angle (perspective). This healing is all about your individual right to be here, to have an inherent purpose and to claim it – from the inside-out. I have a little mantra that always puts both the power & the responsibility squarely back on me “It’s always you!” Everything in our consciousness, and thus what we create, magnetize & manifest, is but a reflection of what is going on inside. That is where your power to change also lies. You have to be willing to face the fears & hurts, accept the losses & defeats, and then get up, dust yourself off & try again. Chiron can help guide this process. We just experienced the last 10-years of healing via Water and now it will shift to healing via Fire, which means another form of cleansing & purification, infinite creativity & deep passion for Life and Nature and initiating new Paths, new ways of being spirit in a human form, and new ways of relating with each other. You can see where this may require some practice and safe space to gain any degree of mastery, but we can do it both individually & together. It’s time to brave & pioneering (clearly the old ways no longer work), it’s time to follow our instincts (though first we may have to connect to them properly), it’s time to face challenges head-on, and remember that though we have to do for Self (be self-sufficient & self-contained), we do not have to do it alone. So this time is really going to support the evolution of the individual within the context of the community or their relationships. It is all connected, if one evolves (Self), the other (Relationship) has to evolve too (or go away/dissolve).

4/18 ~ Sun (essential self & core drives) ~conjunct~ Uranus (disruption & liberation):
This energy serves to provoke a radical shift within you, catalyzing the desire to breathe fresh, clean, new vital energy into your idea of who you are and what you came to contribute. It may not be comfortable, but it is necessary and even moreso for those of you who are more rigid in your habits & thinking or depend on others to validate who you are and what you contribute. Sometimes a little disruption serves to get you focused on what is really important to you. And at this time, change is in the air. It is far better to use the intensity of collective change to shift on personal levels, rather than try to go it alone or worse, play the martyr or victim fighting a battle you can never win. It’s time for your most unique Self to contribute the piece only you can. This activation may bring the suddenly clarity you need and a refreshed attitude toward life, which can help tremendously as you fortify the connection to what makes you feel authentic, free & independent. If you resist the shift, you will manifest other disruptions that are far less productive, much more frustrating and significantly more costly.

What People Are Saying About the New Personal Venus Activations:
Hi Kelly! The new Venus Activations are beautiful!! the graphics are really nice. I like the activations, angles and the other info all in one place. I really like knowing the whole picture, personally. I do love the workbook but these single chapters are nice on the go. I don’t bring my book with me all the time so it is sometimes a challenge wondering what is activating that day. Having my own pdf to refer to would be very useful. Sending Hugs, Holly

Namaste sister-friend! I am really enjoying the new form. The layout of the activations is clearly written making it easy to “see”, and know what to pay attention to. It feels more intimate; like you and I are having a conversation about my personal activations. Thank you for all of the work that you do for the Venus. It’s very much appreciated. Jai Ma🕉

4/10 ~ Sun (illumination) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a challenge to grow out of your comfort zone and into new territory. That said, with Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024), twice a year for these 16-years, when the Sun is in Aries (Spring) and Libra (Fall), we get an opportunity to grow & change in fundamental departments of life: self vs other and home vs work. In this case, and during these years, we are literally changing how we do ALL of this. Each year builds on the previous and we are now 10-years into the 16-year process of transformation. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the next 6-years, and ultimately, what you would like to get out of your conscious efforts and dedication. Sun helps us clarify and when working with Pluto, it is usually what is NOT working, what has run its course and is ready to be composted into new Life, new growth and a new direction (for Self). Pluto is the Purifier, distilling things back to their true and original essence, you can fight that and it will be painful, or work with it consciously and it can be transformative, often healing the deepest root of any challenge. You can use this activation to honor that which has become obvious and highlighted in the here & now, so you can purge or purify this energy. You are deeply supported for releasing old patterns and setting new conscious practices into action. Tie up loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn & move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.

4/11 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars (masculine & giving):
Venus rules your values & priorities where relationships with love & money are concerned, your inner Sacred Feminine that innately knows how to co-create with nature, what to cultivate and nurture to full development. Mars rules your desire nature and your inner Sacred Masculine, which is responsible for maintaining your personal boundaries, getting your ideas into the world and negotiating on your own behalf. When you are channeling both through you in a balanced way, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.

4/12 ~ Venus (essence & beauty) ~sextile~ Neptune (consciousness & vision):
This energy connects your true values & priorities to the planet of dreams, mysticism & other dimensions (Neptune). You have an opportunity to gain some traction on making your vision tangible just by connecting to the essence you want to experience. Feel the feeling and that will lead to the physical manifestation later. This energy helps you believe in what is possible and supports any artistic expression or active practice (vision boards, affirmations etc) that helps you hone the actual vision. Steps and strategies are for other planets, Venus only cares about the essence of nature & love and Neptune is definitely not who you’d work with for ‘steps/strategies’ ; -) Tune in to the natural beauty around you and suspend any usual inner dialogue for a day or two (as soon as you can) so you can connect to some inspiration guided by your own Heart & Soul (from inside-out).

4/14 ~ Jupiter Rx (Your Truth & Story) ~sextile~ Pluto (Purification & Transformation):   (2 of 3: 1/15 ~ 4/14 ~ 9/12)
This energy brings expansion & regeneration, allowing you to gain serious traction and get big things done. On a personal level, your Truth & Story is due for a renewal. You’ve grown, your life has changed & your consciousness has expanded in recent years and these two are going to assist you in making great strides, in a short amount of time because of your evolution. This is concentrated growth & development with incredible support for overall integrity. Robert Hand says, “This combination symbolizes regeneration to a higher plane of existence” on many levels. So this could also usher in a renewed sense of deep faith in yourself, life and your ‘process’. Because Jupiter expands your consciousness, this activation can stimulate a spiritual rebirth, as well as a literal one (improved environment). This is when you learn (or begin to *know*) something that utterly changes you, on a Soul level, and you are never the same. So you can also look for your Story to evolve to its natural next level as your awareness is expanded and you cannot go back (read: you can’t un-know what you know). This is an opportunity between two major energies, a social planet (Jupiter) and a collective planet (Pluto), to come together in a positive, effective way. Ultimately, this activation will affect you and those around you because Jupiter makes things bigger and Pluto permanently changes things. So if you’re ready for big (and permanent) change, these two support you and your efforts.

4/14 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy puts action behind your dreams! This is the perfect time to reflect on what you really want and if the path you’ve chosen thus far still serves your ultimate goals. Your intuition is heightened and you’re more alert and ready to act on the information you receive. This information is trying to point you toward a more enlightened plan (than you have right now) for manifesting your Truth and Purpose. It’s also a good time to help others realize their dreams in a more tangible way. This energy is that of the volunteer, idealistic and committed to change!

I’d like to share a new custom tool I recently created. I’ve had many of you ask about getting to know Venus without necessarily having to learn her whole cycle and I am excited to offer it to you! Venus rules everything we care about, relationships & finances being at the top of the list. She moves relatively quickly through your chart, spending 3-4 weeks in each Sign so you can work with her on your everyday decisions & choices. Your values & priorities shift & evolve as you do so it is a really great support to have this custom tool to remind you what she is activating in your individual chart.

Your Personal Venus Activations basically track Venus as she contacts planets in your chart and will support you throughout the month. You don’t have to learn her whole cycle, you can just learn how she’s affecting YOU! which will ultimately enable you to co-create in a much more sacred, conscious & effective way.

April 1 – 7, 2018: Weekly Forecast

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

Hi All ~ I just wanted to say that this week is really pivotal – energetically! I hope you have time to read this on the front-end of your week so you are well prepared but in the event you get to it a little later, I wanted to say Venus is your saving grace this week. Think: Feminine, nurturing, observant, careful & caring. You want to catch yourself when you are triggered by deep feelings or emotions that seem to come out of nowhere and ask what they are trying to tell you – about YOU – this is one of the ways your Soul communicates and brings things into your conscious awareness. Venus’ April 7th Activation is a trine/blessing with Saturn the reality planet, so I’d read that first so it puts the rest of the week in perspective ; ) OneLove, Kelly

4/1 ~ Mercury Rx (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, then 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.

Note: Since Mercury is Retrograde in Aries, this is most likely where some blockages or delays are possible. That said, if things have not been going so well, then a ‘reversal’ may be altogether welcome. Check in with your Aries/Individual Purpose at this time, check in with that House/Area of Life for where a re-set is necessary. This coincides with the New Beginnings of Spring and offers a clean slate … if you tie up loose ends in that department or change your thinking in some way. New perspectives await us all ; )

4/2 ~ Mars (energy, desire & action) ~conjunct~ Saturn (structure, responsibility & timing):
Any conjunction is an initiation and Mars rules ‘who you are’ and ‘what you want’, while Saturn rules your definition of reality and your physical limits. If you are feeling frustrated, you may need to clarify your desires more, than take tangible, practical steps toward them. Anytime Saturn is involved, it will depend on your personal nature, as some thrive on structure & good boundaries, while others buck the system and want to do it their own way (which causes its own types of conflicts in the world). Sometimes this energy manifests as action being restricted and the anger that follows. You can either be angry and feel restricted, limited and unable to move … or you can see this energy as an opportunity to define the right actions to take and strategically plan to take them when the Universe is more supportive. This energy requires us to slow down and double check The Plan (Saturn). If you proceed consciously, your plan has a better chance of success than if you were reckless & impatient (Mars). You may experience a blockage of some sort, whether internal or external. You may feel this tremendous urge to move forward in your life but seem to find blockages and limitations with every effort. That is likely your perception rather than reality, so ask your Self if you feel inadequate to the task at hand or if you are dealing with some personal fears around this issue. Remember that fear is: False Evidence Appearing Real – so try to release the fear and reclaim your inner authority to create/lead your own life. If you don’t, your outer circumstance only becomes a reflection of your inner belief. If you are being pessimistic & negative, then you are more likely to attract criticism & delays and actually repel support & protection. Take your grand vision and figure out three small steps you can take, even on this restricted level, that will still take you in the direction of your goal. Mars links up with Saturn every 2-years or so, so even though it is an initiation, you may be better supported for cultivating, planning, working behind the scenes, doing the detail work and foundational (grunt) work that is NECESSARY to support the grand vision when the time comes to fully express it.

Note: This New Cycle of Reality is being seeded in Capricorn for the first time since 1988-90. Mars reboots its cycle every 2-years and Saturn, every 28-years. Some aspect of your inner desires has completed its mission and you must step up to a new level. It is a very potent activation to co-create with if you have strong Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn. You must know by now that the inner creates the outer, not the other way around so check in with your own desire nature and contemplate the why’s – why do you want what you want? And if you actually get it, will your true heart’s desire be fulfilled? It can be a sobering moment as you close the last cycle, however, turn your head to the sky – look UP! And open to a new, richer vision for your life and the life of Mother Earth. You’re being called to honor the reality that you need, desire & deserve!

4/4 ~ Mercury Rx (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Mars (desire & actions):
This activation can be a tough one for some. If your beliefs are out of alignment with your actions, if you are not self-aware or act-out unconsciously, being selfish or childish, then watch out, because squares test you to grow and change in some way. Often, this also means that you are suppressing your nature in some way, which is never really a good idea. When you suppress your Soul, it can make your human more sensitive or defensive, taking things personally as a threat or challenge. If you catch your Self feeling irritable for no apparent reason, try to step back and gain some perspective before responding to your own thoughts or another’s words. Mercury & Mars getting together, in this challenging way, can provoke debates and, in some people, actual fights, so be careful. The deeper aspect of this activation is that some part of you wants to express, perhaps in a new way, and your monkey-mind has got you all off track. Mars demands that you know who you are and what you want, and is the Divine Masculine part of you, which is supposed to hold good boundaries, protect you and negotiate on your behalf in the world. If you know something that you are not acting on, this can be frustrating. If you are acting in ways that are not allowing you to think things through, this too can cause accidents, problems and delays. It is best to pull in until you are clear. And also keep in mind, you may not be out of alignment in the above ways, but those around you may be and will likely have no context for what they are feeling and therefore, become indiscriminate with their choices & actions. But this activation serves a great purpose in helping realign your thinking & your actions so you can be more effective.

4/5 ~ Mercury Rx (communication/expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits/reality):    (2 of 3: 3/11 ~ 4/5 ~ 4/25)
This energy is good for deep thinking rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy making communications with others a little harder 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 makes 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 encourage 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 and strategize about the details of bringing it to fruition. Be inspired about the new rather than overly focused on the old.

4/7 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Saturn (stability & endurance):
This is a smooth, easy energy that you can work with consciously and yield incredible, even tangible, results. It’s a good time to define your terms where relationships are concerned because you are clear about your values & priorities. Based on your past choices & efforts, positive benefits & rewards are forthcoming. If you’ve avoided responsibility in your own relationships (public or private), then this energy can help get you back on track, with less pain & suffering than usual (when Saturn’s involved). If you can be practical about your own limits and realistic about what others bring to the table, then this energy also supports discussing forward movement, development or spiraling to a new, higher level in some way, as a team. Strategizing about the future, clarifying the vision of what will support & protect all involved and honoring the essence of life that runs throughout is deeply supported by these two getting together in an easy angle. Venus is also the energy of love & money, so it’s a good time to be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships & finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable relationship or financial goals for the next 3 – 6 – 12 months.

March 25 – 31, 2018: Weekly Forecast + New Offering

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

I’d like to share a new custom tool I recently created. I’ve had many of you ask about getting to know Venus without necessarily having to learn her whole cycle and I am excited to offer it to you! Venus rules everything we care about, relationships & finances being at the top of the list. She moves relatively quickly through your chart, spending 3-4 weeks in each Sign so you can work with her on your everyday decisions & choices. Your values & priorities shift & evolve as you do so it is a really great support to have this custom tool to remind you what she is activating in your individual chart.

Your Personal Venus Activations basically track Venus as she contacts planets in your chart and will support you throughout the month. You don’t have to learn her whole cycle, you can just learn how she’s affecting YOU! which will ultimately enable you to co-create in a much more sacred, conscious & effective way.

3/28 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~conjunct~ Uranus (awakening & liberation):
This is an initiation of some wildly new values & priorities which have bubbling within for a while now. You are supported to shift, without apology, and remember, when you change, everything/one around you changes or goes away. Same-old, same-old will not do at this time and you are supported for thinking outside the box, especially where conscious equal partnership is concerned. We are in a new era, the Aquarian Age, that supports the individual within the context of the whole. And we are all learning how to do that on micro-levels, within our own individual relationships. Use this activation to release resistance and open to the new, shake things up and look at your life from a completely different perspective and see if you don’t find renewed value in some places and others that have completely run their course and can easily be released. Finally, pay close attention to any innovative ideas that come up around this time – they could be useful down the line.

3/29 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will 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 time just for the individual. This activation is a push to grow. 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”. 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 and wiser. It’s time to deepen your dedication and commit to your Self & your life 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 and trust that taking charge and making a decision and choosing a direction is *inviting help* from the Universe to support your new direction.

3/29 ~ Shanta Gabriel’s Light Circle ~ LIBRA Full Moon Teleconference @5pm (pacific):
If you need/want more energetic support & guidance, each month, Shanta channels a message from the Archangels that supports our theme of the month. Plus, she hosts a Full Moon Teleconference (that I also contribute to), which is designed to support us energetically throughout the month. Having the Archangels and their guidance & support is invaluable and Shanta is a *stellar* channel, who brings through a powerful & rich message every time … and every time, it’s on-time! Then, she follows that with a delicious meditation that helps us integrate the Archangels’ message & the Full Moon Light, into our bodies. Join us!

3/31 ~ LIBRA Full Moon:
This is our annual opportunity to complete things and tie up any loose ends in our relationship department. That means anything and anyone that you have to relate to on a regular basis has this annual opportunity for renewal on a very deep level. It is a time to notice what is out of balance and take advantage of the initiatory energy of the Spring to clear it out and make space for new relationships and for new ways of relating in general. This one has so much additional power & juice for clearing out old, toxic, imbalanced relationships in a way that is so obvious that it makes it almost effortless to finally let go. You will also be shown the new possibilities for nourishing & supportive, balanced & reciprocal relationships, partnerships & collaborations that are being seeded at this time in your life. Where is the beauty? fun? joy? supportive, helpful, peaceful people? What nourishes your body? mind? soul? spirit? Think in terms of how it has evolved over the last 6-months, 1-year and over the last 8-years for sure. What you used to be magnetized and attracted to has likely evolved, deepened and/or changed completely from 7-10 years ago. It’s time to do some internal reflection on the lessons & blessings you have gained through all your current relationships. No matter how grueling or treacherous they’ve been, you’ve learned something about your Self and humanity and how peace must be nurtured. Now, the Universe, the planets, Mother Earth herself all support you in stepping up and into NEW ways of being your Self, which automatically shifts how you relate with Others, on every level. Many small Circles and Communities have strong roots and are growing amazing things that will feed us all in the end. Find your inner balance, tap into this Spring Season when physical balance is naturally available and call in more balance & reciprocity in your personal & professional relationships. Allow good into your life.

March 18 – 24, 2018: Weekly Forecast + Equinox Event

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

3/19 ~ 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 create containers for the ideas that have been percolating in your head. Some people are moved to communicate their love (ie, say “I love you”), or articulate their feelings in deeper, more expressive ways. It’s really *juicy* for your Inner Artist because this is the beginning of expressing your creative ideas in altogether new & different ways than ever before (or at least the last 8-years). 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/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.

3/20 ~ SPRING Equinox 2018:
Spring Equinox brings the Renewal of Life & Light, Rebirth & Resurrection and more vital energies & resources are now more readily available. It’s time to plant seeds and initiate projects that will show promise by Fall Equinox. It is our first access to balance within & without. We are supported to discover & feel for ourselves, this renewal of Spring. We are coming from a predominantly Internal/Dark/Shadow/Fallow time and returning to an External/Light/Fertile time.


This *Sacred Season* is About …
Renewal of Light & Initiation of New Life
Turning Point / Crossroads
Being More Active/Physical
Spring Cleaning & Clearing
(mentally/physically/spiritually/environmentally)
Resurrection, Renewed Life & Vitality
(within you and your environment)
New Beginnings, Seed-Planting & Initiation
Fiery Creativity, Fertility & Blossoming Energy
Taking a Serious Step in the Direction of Your Goal
Delicate Infant Stages, New Growth & Development

On an Individual level, this is a time to tune-in and honor whatever is stirring within, and positioning for *birth* 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!

3/22 ~ Mercury Retrogrades @16* ARIES:
Mercury Retro is the best time to pull back and do a personal review and process all that’s come up in the last 3-months. Because it’s in Aries, this go-round has to do with what you have recently initiated. It’s time to review what you really want and fortify your mental resilience. Look for ways you may not be following your instincts and set intentions for more independent thinking going forward. It’s time to do self-preservation on many levels. Take this time to review, revise & reflect.

3/23 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This activation brings intensity and it challenges you to grow (out of comfort zone, into new territory) where your relationships & finances are concerned. You’ve probably already felt it coming (the shift in your relationship or financial situation), well, it’s here now, so you can be proactive on your own behalf or you can suffer the consequences of postponing the inevitable. (You may have heard me say: Pay now or pay double later. That applies to this transit too.) The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the job or relationship but try not to give in to that temptation. Pluto intensifies everything and the more you resist the necessary purification & change that Pluto brings, the more painful it usually is. It is better to clarify your values & priorities and choose change, rather than have it forced (more Pluto) upon you. Either way, once the dust settles, you should be better off because things either change for the better or go away altogether making room for something new and more in-alignment with your values & priorities of ‘now’.

3/24 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Mars (desires & actions):
This is a challenge about your energy and how to direct it properly. You started something about 6-months ago that now challenges who you are and what you want, so adjustments must be made. It’s not a good/bad thing, just a test to get out of your comfort zone and into new territory. You are supported to get your true desires congruent with what/who you present to the world. As you develop that, often the first thing that becomes obvious is what is not working. It may seem as if the Universe, and a couple of humans for good measure, will be pointing out your weaknesses, short-comings, lack of preparation and mistakes you’ve made. Be careful not to take things personal, but keep in mind that if it’s being brought into your awareness, you can learn from it. Keep self-preservation in mind and be compassionate with others struggling with their own identity issues at this time. This is energy that needs a positive, physical outlet too. If you can channel it through physical exercise or an activity you love, then you may find that the *Moving Meditation* opens you up to better choices and more authentic decisions, while denial & suppression only lead to disappointment, illness or accidents.

March 11 – 17, 2018: Weekly Forecast + More

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

Note from Kelly:
This is an incredibly potent week to work with consciously. We have had our faith tested in many ways in the last few years, perhaps the last few months particularly intensely. I hope you are finding miraculous confirmations along the way that your *liberating ordeal* is/was worth it. No regrets. This is a magical time of dreaming the next leg of the journey into being. It’s not a good time to be led blindly, in overwhelm, confused, depressed or disoriented. It’s time to activate your deepest faith in your greatest vision and take your first few wobbly steps on this New Path that is opening before you. Do not linger in the past or in that which is now completed, wrap it all up & move on with joy, gratitude & renewed self-awareness. For a little more support, I suggest you see note I just sent to my main mailing list ~ Click Here

3/11 ~Mercury (communication/expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits/ reality):   (1 of 3: 3/11 ~ 4/5 ~ 4/25)
This energy is good for deep thinking rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy making communications with others a little harder 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 makes 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 encourage 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 and strategize about the details of bringing it to fruition.

3/11 ~ Mars (courage & passion) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & individuality):
This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity for a major personal breakthrough. Mars gives you the courage and Uranus awakens new possibilities within. This is an easy alignment of your actions and your individual brilliance. You may even discover some new gift or talent that has been dormant for a while, but is now beginning to come to life. This energy pushes you to try something new that liberates you in some way that you may have previously felt daunted by in the past. Because of the easy angle too, this new evolution to the next level should not entail you having to annihilate any other aspect of your life, you will just intuitively know it is time to change. It won’t matter what others think or say either, because the prompting for change comes from within so take advantage of this time to experiment. You never know where it will lead.

3/11 ~ 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.

3/13 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):
This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to ‘take stock’ of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal – relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships in your life. This energy pushes you to dig for your own fortitude & determination to live according to your own values & priorities and corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed or disconnected but it’s just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It’s good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don’t give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead, build on your strengths and honor the goodness you’ve created together, as well as in your Self. This is the best time to be alone and reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in the future.

3/13 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a blessing of Source energy fueling your biggest dreams & visions for your life, this lifetime. You are encouraged to take advantage of the good *vibe* available when these two get together to expand your life’s direction in a big way. This activation is often blessings from previous dedication. You’ve been moving in a certain direction, and it’s like the Path is wider & deeper now, allowing you to connect some huge pieces of your personal Story *together* in a new way. It’s great for learning & exploring anything that will support your forward movement. Some may use the good vibe to veg-out and relax, which for some, may be best. However, if you are stepping up to new levels of your own consciousness, this energy totally supports you as you integrate it all. It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goals at this time.

3/17 ~ PISCES New Moon:
This is an annual crossroads we come to every year around this time. It is the completion of 12-new moons since the last Pisces New Moon (2.26.2017), which was also the final eclipse in the Virgo/Pisces Series of six. How’s it going a year later? Eclipses come in and shake things up in those departments of our lives. I like to remind folks that we get eclipses every year, so there is always energy available to change anything you are ready, willing & able to change. What evolves, as we evolve, and presents the themes (lessons/experiences) are the Signs. We get about 2-years to work with whatever gets shaken up by the eclipse energy that comes in and says it is time to ‘break to realign’ in this area. (We’re now in the 2018 Leo/Aquarius realm and speedily heading toward Cancer/Capricorn realm.) No one is exempt. We all have a House in our charts ruled by Pisces. It is here you should seed your intentions and precious vision for the next year (minimum), with consideration of where you’d like to be at the 6-month MidPoint, the Pisces Full Moon 8.26.2018, when these very seeds will show their true promise.

Consider that this crossroads is simultaneously an ending and the womb holding what will be birthed next. Virgo/Pisces realms teach us about being a Spirit in Human form. How’s that going for you at this time? Can you see any patterns in your health or consciousness, your physicality or spirituality and how all these dynamics are part of who/what you are? The years that this ‘shake-up’ is related to, and thus may reveal your personal pattern (similar issues arise again to be cleared at a whole new level) are mentioned in the following excerpt from my 2/26 post last year, which is also good to reflect on at this time.

Feb 2017/One Year Ago ~ NOTE from Kelly: Energetically, we have an incredible week ahead of us! This week starts with a Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse (2/26) and ends with Venus Retrograding in Aries (3/4). 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) – the final in a series of six eclipses.

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 & 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? your Nature? Mother Nature?
