of Intention

My intention is to use astrology and access to higher consciousness as tools to bring forth information, insights and energies to benefit my life and the lives of those who request through me, for the highest good of all.

My personal life intention is to embody my Soul's highest vibrational essence and to live from that heightened perspective. My desire is that through my work, I may assist others in accessing the higher perspective on their life's journey, and  support them in taking the next step in embodying their own Soul's highest essence.

NorthPoint Astrology Journal

January 26 to February 1, 2015

Highlighted Aspects:

MON: Pluto semisquare Venus; TUE: Venus enters Pisces, Uranus sextile Mercury; FRI: Saturn square Venus, Pluto sextile Mars, Sun conjunct Mercury; SAT: Chiron conjunct Mars; SUN: Neptune conjunct Venus


VENUS appears in our highlighted aspects list several times, so we can assume that issues ruled by this planet will be in our awareness this week. These issues include relationships, financial resources, our sensitivity to art and beauty, and our most deeply felt values.
Taking it from a different perspective, let's walk through the week alongside Venus and see how it unfolds.
ON MONDAY, Venus is aware of a darker energy in her peripheral vision. At times she thinks she's making things up, that her mind is fooling her -- but the sense that something is amiss keeps nipping at her heels.
This is Venus' last day in Aquarius, before entering Pisces on Tuesday. Pluto forms a semisquare with Venus on Monday, and this is the source of her sense of something being wrong.
What is "wrong" is not Pluto, but the fear and distrust that Pluto's energy can sometimes make us conscious of. Pluto brings into our awareness something that has been beneath the surface, that we've either not known was there or have kept hidden because we didn't want to think about it.
A SEMISQUARE is not a major aspect, and often represents a minor challenge to the status quo. But at the same time, semisquares provide an opportunity to address an issue while it is still in its less obvious stage, before the planets involved reach a more confrontational square or opposition aspect.
The opportunity we have early in the week, as Pluto and Venus form a semisquare, is to pay attention to those fears in our peripheral vision -- not to make them bigger than they are, but to be aware of how those minor fears are actually affecting our well-being.
With Venus in Aquarius, the fears may relate to having valued freedoms denied or to feeling controlled by circumstances or people. If these fears come up, it is worthwhile to observe whether the loss of freedom is caused by the circumstances that we fear, or if our fear itself is the true cause of our loss of freedom.

ON TUESDAY, Venus leaves freedom-loving, airy Aquarius and enters the compassionate, creative waters of Pisces. This change of signs is a subtle shift, but marks the beginning of a three-week phase during which Venus is motivated more by her ideals than by practical concerns.
While Venus is in Pisces, we can be more understanding and forgiving, but also more gullible in relationships than we might otherwise be. We may also want to be careful of making major decisions about finances and spending during these three weeks, since our idealism is stronger than our realism -- especially with Mercury also retrograde during this time.
But, while Venus is in Pisces, our sensitivity to others and our artistic sensibility are both enhanced. We may also find it easier to access inspiration, both in our creative activities and in our spiritual pursuits.
IF VENUS MADE any missteps early in the week, perhaps trusting the wrong people, taking a role of self-sacrifice in an effort to save someone, or not thinking through all the practical aspects of a purchase, she will come face-to-face with the realities of her choices with the Saturn-Venus square on Friday.
Even without any errors in judgment, the meeting with Saturn indicates a challenge to her usual ways of approaching relationships and financial concerns, requiring that Venus gets very clear on what works and doesn't work in these areas.
ON SUNDAY, Venus catches up with Neptune, and the two planets begin to dance, sailing across the floor in a beautiful waltz. These two planets are already in sync, and as they dance, it can seem that their feet barely touch the floor.
Depending on our individual propensities and the needs of our own natal Venus, this can be either a welcome time to let go of needing anything beyond the beauty of the moment, or a frustrating time when we are not getting the concrete connection or real experience we are looking for.
OTHER PLANETARY ASPECTS this week include a Uranus-Mercury sextile on Tuesday, providing opportunities for us to rethink our position on some issue, and to tap into our intuitive knowing for solutions. As the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury on Friday, the viability of those solutions will be highlighted, and we'll see more clearly what still needs to be done before we implement our ideas.
Mars is supported by a sextile from Pluto on Friday, so we may feel more empowered than usual, and more in touch with the courage needed for going forward. But we must also deal with those leftover fears about not being able to have what we want, since Chiron conjoins Mars on Saturday.
