MidPoint of Spring & Summer 2015
May always brings the *Mid-Point* between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. It's a 6-week period that you can dedicate to tuning in, harmonizing & synchronizing your rhythm with Nature's rhythm.
Now is the time to connect with your body and physical environment. Invite the Elementals, Nature Spirits, Devas and the Plant Kingdom in to conscious collaboration, honor their teachings & sacrifices made to assist, feed & support life on this planet in ways humans may not always be capable of.
Cross Quarters are considered the *Gates of Power* ~ the in between ~ the mid-point ~ between the Solstices and Equinoxes. This is the *Sweet Spot* ~ between Seed and New Life that is always accompanied by the creative chaos of Endings/New Beginnings.
This *Sacred Season* is About: Establishing Roots & Cultivating Life
Gifts & Abundance
Celebration of Sexuality
Freedom & Responsibility
New Bonds & Attachments
Ripening, Blossoming & Fruition
This 6-wk season leads straight into Summer Solstice, which brings completely new energy to the fore. One of the shifts is Venus, initiating her new 18-mo cycle, and the overtone is changing from very serious Capricorn, to seriously playful Leo! and from Earth to Fire, a radically different modality, and another part of your chart comes due for the *upgrade* around Your Love, Money & Magnetics, courtesy of Venus.
New Venus Cycle in *LEO*
June - Oct 2015 ~ Consider the upcoming 4-month period as an introduction to your newly Emergent Self! You have been through a full cycle of evolution since the last Venus Retro thru LEO (2007). Explore a little. Review the last 8-years of your life. We are all in very new territory and must evolve past ego drives & people-pleasing ~ to true self-love and the courage to be authentic in every moment.
This is a powerfully transformative Summer! You are breaking out of long-held confines, preparing to spread your wings and live in a completely new & different way. Now is the time to develop all new personal self-care routines, which will naturally lead to you expressing & being your Self more fully in your primary relationships (love, friendship, family or work). Practice with your Emergent Self ... and let the chips fall where they may!
Since 2007 . . .
- How have you grown & evolved?
- What have you learned about your Self?
- What is all that 'worth' to you (then & now)?
- How have your values & priorities shifted regarding: love, sex, fun, creativity & how you express who you really are?
- What is the difference in how you expressed your Self in 2007, and how you want to express in new ways NOW (2015)?
- What have you learned about your immediate friends, family & community, and your place (and preferences) within each connection?
The upcoming Venus work is going to be very personal for everyone, but especially those with Leo/Aquarius and Taurus/Scorpio 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, Leo means your core essential nature & authentic self-expression has evolved over the last 8-years and adjustments to your personal presentation & current playmates should begin to reflect the *upgrade*.
Leo energy (in its Highest form) is ... fiery and passionate ~ loving and loyal ~ courageous and magnanimous ~ generous and full of HEART!! It is this part of you being initiated at this time. The intense energies, great clearings, deep revelations, and glaring truths are ALL preparing you for what is coming next. Your core essential nature may be solid, but it's time for a new facet of your character to emerge. Self-Love, Self-Worth & Self-Esteem issues may come up, but you should also be noticing where you have achieved a whole new level of Dedication, Self-Discipline & Self-Mastery too!

JUNE 2015 ~ Cycles Overlap
As we complete the current cycle of Capricorn, activating our Inner Architect, it is time to move into the Leo cycle, activating our Inner Artist. It's a great time to join the Venus Circle, which gathers each month and is a tremendous support for just these kinds of changes we are all experiencing. If you want to go deeper in to your own Venus, then a Personal Reading & Custom Guide would be useful and will be used throughout the call series.
3rd/Solar Plexus Chakra & Gemini
How Your Consciousness Directs Your Actions & Your Actions Reflect Your Consciousness
We had another Special Guest on our Venus call, Jana Matthews of ManifestingEssentials.com and NewMoonManifesting.com, who I invited to share her perspective on Gemini/The Twins and multiple streams of income, as well as the Solar Plexus Chakra and how vital this chakra is for helping us bring our ideas to the world, in form, to be shared, beneficial & useful for all. This is a powerful *Reclamation* and we are so well supported for being anchored at the core, grounded in our Center and ready for action!
Jana gave us some fantastic guidance & direction on how to *Make It Real* (manifest) with some delicious & practical Tools. She shared her story, which includes her journey from accomplished accountant to mystical Master manifester! and how she has integrated the big dreams & ideas with the practical, day-to-day decisions & choices that bring them to Life.
Solar Plexus time indicates we can now claim a new reality, in our physical bodies and at our current, higher level of conscious awareness. We are ready! Let go of the old wounds & obsolete Stories that are someone else's life story (perhaps) but not yours! And start living here & now, with conviction, power, courage (Solar Plexus) and multi-dimensionality (Gemini). You are ready!
Saturn in SCORPIO ~ Integration of the Last 3-Years
Another amazing Soul has agreed to come play with the Venus Circle in June! Sao, of AstrologyOfChange.com, has also generously offered a Special deal for my entire Power Circle Community. Right before our April Venus Circle with Jana Matthews, I heard Sao's call, The Libra Challenge: Become A Master Of Relationship (4.12.2015) and right after my Venus call, I remembered an old, extremely powerful call Sao did called Saturn in Scorpio: In the Chinese "Year of the Black Snake", the Snake Sheds Yet Another Skin (1.26.2013).
These two particular calls are jam-packed with clear explanation, as well as a vital translation of energetic support, that we have had access to for a couple of years now, serving as delicious bookends to this time frame (2012-2015). Specifically covered is Saturn in Scorpio which is about to spend June-Sept 2015 finalizing all the work we have grounded over the last few years in the Scorpio Dept of our charts. For those of you working on reconciling the various dualities & polarities (Gemini Dept) human life is often fraught with, these two calls are invaluable for clarifying where you'd like to go from here and how.
Your SoulSelf & Authentic Self in Conversation
Saturn's deep & final dive into Scorpio's realm, is going to overlap with the first quarter of our new Venus Cycle in Leo. This gives us tremendous extra *JuJu* for engaging our SoulSelf in a conversation with our Authentic Self to conceive a completely new reality (minimum of 28-years) that reflects this integration. Inner & Outer Alignment enables you to be more congruent with your own Heart & Soul, and grounded in a reality of your own making, that both supports & protects YOU, the individual, as well as promotes the conscious equal partnership you seek to co-create with others, including Mother Earth herself.
Good Time to Review ~ Mercury Retro in GEMINI (Rx: 5/18 - Direct: 6/11) ~
With the upcoming Mercury Retro thru Gemini (May-June 2015), it is the perfect time to review any one or all of these article/audio recommendations I've made herein. This Summer brings the MidPoint in a year that is going to look & feel very different by the end of it than it did at the beginning of 2015. This is the time to really review, sort & sift through the first 6-months of the year before setting a course for the final 6-months and beyond. Either way, several planets will be in altogether new positions come December 2015.
