As Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th for the first time since 2007, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’. So it is with great interest I consider the implications of the year ahead into 2019, as Jupiter’s ‘job’ is to expand and enlarge the theme of the sign he triggers, and Sagittarius is all about the nature of TRUTH & BELIEFS.
There is so much to report on this month!
Venus retrograde in Libra: October 31 to November 16;
Venus direct in Libra: November 16 to December 2:
Venus has recently begun a new 9 month phase within an 18 month cycle. This new phase has had quite kick to it, thanks to Venus in dynamic tension to the karmic axis and in opposition to Uranus.
The next 584 day, 19 mth, 1.6 year synodic* cycle, Venus’ next round of the Sun, begins as the current one ends with the interior retrograde conjunction at 3°06’ Scorpio on 26th October UTC. It then peaks midpoint in its cycle at 21° Leo on Aug 14th, 2019 at the direct exterior conjunction, before Venus swings back down to earth for the next end and begining at 14° Gemini on June 4th, 2020 for the next retrograde interior conjunction. . In her never ending 5 pointed cycle, Venus, who acts somewhat like a Cosmic Bee, is set to pollinate her next Star points, her inner and outer conjunctions with the Sun, inner being the retrograde conjunctions with the Sun, and outer being when she transits on the other side of the Sun, opposite to Earth.
The dance that the celestial lovers create in the sky mirrors our relationship patterns. This interplay also reflects their roles as key archetypes of feminine and masculine energy.
The fact that Venus and Mars are on opposite sides of the Earth in the solar system mirrors their astrological rulership as opposing signs of the zodiac. They are also opposing forces in physics in their association as metals copper and iron. In every aspect of their relationship they work in unison, always as a pair of opposites.

With Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn, the Venus Star Point in Capricorn and Uranus’ entry into Taurus this year, the earth signs are prominent. Coming out of 2017’s intense planetary line-up of fire, earth feels like a relief. With its needs for practicality and grounding along with sensible actions, manifestation of those visionary dreams seems more likely. The focus is on slowing down, taking things one at a time. This is especially true after mid-May when Taurus receives Uranus.
