2018 Venus begins her Evening Star journey- Jan 09
Very early today (2.02am EST) Venus joins the Sun at 18 degrees Capricorn 57 minutes and her Evening Star journey begins. She is still in the Underworld (too close to the Sun to be visible) and emerges from that deep world when she becomes visible on the western horizon around Feb 20. Her journey as Evening Star continues until she again meets the Sun Oct 26 and begins a new cycle as Morning Star. The synodic cycle of the Sun and Venus is 584 days.
As Evening Star she connects us to the Temple Priestesses and at-oneness- within. (That is my perspective). The synchronicity here is 2018 is an 11 year (inner spiritual unity) and the Tarot Constellation of the High Priestess (intuitive awareness and balanced judgment). As this Evening Star journey begins in Capricorn it is also about feeling empowered in our world and the world. Capricorn is associated with authority, government, and those in power. That is the masculine expression. But Capricorn is a Feminine Yin sign. I have always associated this Cardinal Earth sign with discovering our Soul Purpose Path and living it. But first we have to identify what limits and restricts us from stepping onto that path. The planetary ruler of this Venus Evening Star is Saturn, also in Capricorn. He creates the opportunity to break through obstacles that we encounter on our life journey so we become empowered. Or he limits and restricts us to the point where we have to find the power to break free from whatever those limits are.
When a new cycle begins we look to see what messages the planetary dance is sending us. We start with some intense opportunity for actively choosing transformational healing. Here are the dates and energetic activations. All times are EST.
Jan 06- 6.39 pm- Mercury in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries- Breaking free from limiting thoughts to your authentic truth. 7.39 pm- Mars joins Jupiter in Scorpio- actively choosing to release the old limitation and allowing your spiritual vision to guide you. The key word is transformation.
Jan 07- 7.15 am- Moon enters Libra- focus on balance and harmony in relationship and within self. The Moon is visiting Libra until Jan 09- 3.05 pm when she enters Scorpio, healing and release.
Jan 08- 7.07 am- Sun in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Scorpio- 11.13 am Venus in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Scorpio- the opportunity to step into your Soul Purpose by releasing what no longer serves you. 2.59 pm- Mars in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn- healing, transformation, and renewal. 5.15 pm to 6.17 pm- Moon in Libra squares Venus/Sun/Pluto in Capricorn- Motivation to find new ways of doing things and becoming empowered in your life.
Jan 09- 2.02 am- Sun and Venus meet in Capricorn- Venus Evening Star begins- 4.03 am- Venus meets Pluto in Capricorn- 4.33 am- Sun meets Pluto in Capricorn- tearing down the old structures that no longer work and making space for personal transformation that empowers you in the world. 4.45 am- Moon in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries- resolving conflict in relationship by being your authentic self and living your Soul Purpose Truth.
Jan 11- 12 .09 am- Mercury clears his retrograde shadow and enters Capricorn- Focus on the spiritual gifts you are here to share with the world. Believe you are powerful because you are.
As you can see the message is empowerment. I believe this Venus Evening Star journey is going to change the status of women in the world. Our totem guides are Snow Goose, follow your dreams and visions (Northern Hemisphere) and Flicker Woodpecker, transitions, new rhythms of growth, and healing love (Southern Hemisphere). The Earth is in Cancer while the Sun visits Capricorn (to Jan 19/20) so these Totems are guiding us all. The Clan Mother for the Capricorn Evening Star is Talks With Relations. She is the guardian of kinship with all life forms and teaches us to enter the Sacred Space of others with respect. She teaches us How to Learn the Truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
For more insights on the journeys of Venus and how you can find your own Venus Star I recommend the following books. “Venus: her Cycles, Symbols, and Myths” by Anne Massey. “The Light of Venus” by Adam Gainsburg. “Venus Star Rising” by Arielle Guttman. www.astrologyhub.com is hosting a free online seminar on Jan 09 to 11 and Arielle will be sharing her insights about the Venus Capricorn Star journey one of those days. You need to register with astrology hub to join. They are also on Facebook. The start times for the seminars are 1.00 pm PST and 4.00 pm EST and 9.00 pm GMT each day.
So this Venus journey is going to be truly transformational with Pluto activating release and rebirth. Pluto will also be a strong influence at the Capricorn New Moon of Jan 16/17. I will write more about that in the near future. For now I hope I have given you an idea of how powerful this journey is for us all.
