Volatility Flux

Listen Closely

It’s hard to be clear when Venus Retro urges finesse, tactics and most of all, TIME.Β  But Mars square Uranus says pull the plug – any damn plug – NOW AND Jupiter square Saturn is all about a major structural reboot.

Like the kind of geo-politically tectonic shift we are seeing with the Iran and the USA deal OR the what-the-fuqery of the Shanghai Stock market.

Only imagine that sort of a re-alignment of power bases, loyalties and goals playing out in YOUR life.

At least we can be clear on the basic fact that Venus Retro ain’t good for impulse fashion buys nor cosmetic surgery.

Still, think about the above and to aid in the Volatility Flux Navigation, your Weekly Horoscopes are posted already AND also the Daily Horoscopes for Friday + the Weekend.

Volatility Flux -FFO l am feeling so shit. I got Venus stationed over my Mars/Pluto dog. I’m howling at the Moon. Then it’ll go back over my Merc/Uran cjunct; cant even think what that’ll do I got PlutRx 7H (where my Ruler lives) opp my midpoint of KatAsc/Sun. Where the fuq is she??? I got NepRx 8H opp my Venus. Fuq, l need a Fuq. I got SatRx 5H; need l describe that anguish? & l am still smarting over Toro Femme saying there was nothing in it despite her actions being diagonally opposite to her words I really struggle… Read more »

Hang in there. At the risk of sounding glib ‘”his too shall pass”. Good decision not to drive if you are feeling this way. Music can really shift my mood so I hope that and the Virgo work ethic will help get you through.

Deb

Of course that should be “this” too….

Jokerman

Thanx

Sam

Wow, that’s a lot of stuff. agree with your sentiments about not wanting to be too crazy of highway driving is involved. Maybe, just, movement regardless? circulation. Heat. Run/walk km’s, jump in the river/dam, you know. You’re probably the kind of person who does that though. Big lungfuls of clean fresh air and cool fresh water just for you and your corps. (Corps as in French word for body, not army personnel, or worse, lol ) When there is SO much “other people” astro action in our chart, but the Other People are not materialising, the angst is fuqing brutal.… Read more »

Ta for your insight / light.

I lost first reply.
Gist was the freakish confluity / synchronicity of it all.

“Other ppls” houses for sure but really still is personal lessons.

Sam

Yeah. Sux to be us sometimes. But what’s the alternative? So, get on with living by any means necessary πŸ™‚ peace xx

Weird money stuff already with the Venus retro…. delay of invoice getting paid and ATM card not working again, already went through that all month with having a ‘merchant compromise’ of my card around that gnarly July 1st full moon, having to get a new card, etc…. also getting new housemates and they need to pay up for rent and deposit……. all sorts of money stuff converging right now and of course need to pay a bunch of bills Aug 1st…. Money stress has been a constant in my life for the past six years or so, so I’m somewhat… Read more »

Sam

You’re sounding a bit more on a level, fc, yeah?
Saturn through 5th house was really hard work for me. Keel-hauled my self-esteem and left it for dead. Came out alive, eventually, and with a relatively unassailable sense of who I am in the world.

Keep on the money things, you got this, x

rachel

I was rummaging through supplements to bring with me and guess what I found — PLUTO JUICE aka Bach Walnut: “As a remedy against the effects of change, Walnut is useful at all the transition points in life, from birth to teething to going to school to puberty to marriage to childbearing to retirement and beyond. It helps break links with the past so that we can move forward more easily.” I remember getting this stuff at a teeny tiny health shop in Spain five years ago, during the beautiful and terrifying Venus-Pluto transit. Man I have been on this… Read more »

UGH I know right? Trying to find a balance and quit angsting over schizz.

Sam

Oohh. An almost instant lightening up. Moon was on my NN and Sun merc on progressed Leo asc . Also.. Jupiter trine Venus, dsc when a little publicity thing went out that I am in. Hey, baby steps right πŸ™‚

rachel

Leaving for Munich for philosophy conference tomorrow. Today is my last day at work before I go… I can just tell that it’s my last day of work period. I won’t be able to nor should I come back to this.. There were some comical tantrums yesterday and because it was over Skype I was okay, but if I had to deal with that in person one more time I would have pulled that plug and just ghosted this company on the spot. If I stay quiet today and then bounce I get my PTO to cover the trip’s expenses… Read more »

Firefish

Munich is a really lovely welcoming city- if that helps, can’t think of a more nurturing place to go, travel well! X

rachel

That’s what people have been telling me… when I traveled alone before it was mostly all over Spain and my Spanish is proficient, but I know ZERO German, I feel like such a dick, haha. The school is in English, of course. But still.

Sam

sounds great Rache. you handled that really well.
I’m familiar with the secret-back-up clear-out sort-resources background tech operations when there is a scent of “I’m done” in the air. whatever happens it’s a good idea. Enjoy Munich πŸ™‚

rachel

I haven’t done a tarot reading in some time and was feeling anxious tonight, just did one and feeling confident about my decisions/direction. Wasn’t so much a message as a nudge not to collapse on what I’ve already decided and that I’m supported… I will enjoy Munich, I need the break badly and am low on energy and health right now so it will be mostly studying and being low-key. But I don’t mind that at all. πŸ™‚ <3

Sam

Good πŸ™‚
amazing how restful Low-key travel can be, if you want it to be!
(Fwiw I seem to find myself solo in countries where I know nada local language, but you get around fine. Germany,..if you’re stuck, English is only a polite question away πŸ™‚ if the dictionary or phone translate fails you! )

Lady L

Oh philosophy in Munich sounds divine.

Enjoy every moment. Safe, happy, enlightened travels!

I’ve been rearranging my entire physical house for the last month & I’m still not done. It’s felt like moving, it’s been that massive of a shift. And yes, I am really feeling a deadline approaching, the pressure of it creeping up behind me, like an urgent whisper: “Hurry up: you’re running out of time!” But then my body says, “Whoa there: we need a nap.” So I nap, & dream of packing & unpacking, like mind mapping the whole rearrangement. Guided imagery. It helps.

Electro

Change of energy flow! I’m always amazed on how small changes to the house effect the Qi. A complete rearranging sounds divine. My house is too small for it. Did you have any luck with the chow?

AnkhRising8.0

Ugh No. I contacted the rescue on the 16th like they told me to, & then they tell me that this dog became available weeks ago & had already been adopted! Omg I was so mad… For days, so mad.

I got your message, btw, CP πŸ™‚ So nice of you to drop by & say hello!

sphinx

Ooh chow! It’s a shame about that one, but exciting that you are in the market for a little beloved, πŸ™‚ . Good luck!

Electro

Oh, no I’m so sorry to hear. I hope another furry friend shows up for you.

And you’re welcome πŸ˜‰

AKAPluto

Yeah…everything is rearranging. This is the astro version of psychic remodeling. Get rid of this, add this, don’t even bother with THAT and WHOAH why didn’t I notice that pile of dust over there?

I think I’ve been doing alright with it- definitely getting the message but boy is there a crazy pace to everything right now.

AnkhRising8.0

So true: last Venus retro I impulsively bought a pair of shoes that weren’t my usual look, & 3 months later I couldn’t stand the sight of them. They’re still in the back of a closet, collecting dust & my disdain. But they remind me to not make another bone headed move with my moola like that again.

Most recently I had the sudden urge to chop off my waist-length hair (that I’ve been carefully growing for the last 3 years). It’s a personal, spiritual power thing, hair… So I put some braids in it, instead. Control & power. Grounding.

luckyshell

See this is what I’m talking about. The Samson hair as mantle of power thing. Again, maybe just my Venus in Leo Midheaven, BUT STILL! I have long curly hair right now and am considering returning to my blunt Cleotatra cut as s pure “don’t f with me” move.

Prince stolas

Have you considered a faux bob until venus goes direct? Maybe wigs?

sphinx

Haha, I have been exactly in this thought process. Decided I need looong hair, no matter that it is thin and looks better shoulder length.
It is for my inner balance and all the better to channel and store energy.

But then, I feel all choppy..
So the other week I dyed it dark brown and bought new makeup, i love it. Am keeping this colour for a bit.

woman w multiple hoofs

Hair – it absolutely is!

I did my own significant chop a few weeks back – it was grief-related – and it feels brilliant – dead wood gone etc etc – and then, interestingly, Venus in the form of my beauty therapist in a fit of pity and gifting, jumped on my eyebrows with wax, and then tinted my eyelashes – completely out of my comfort zone but . . . yep . . . LOVE the result – esp now that the tinting has settled. Venus took charge, bolt of blue style – I trust that kind

flowerchild

Yes, hair definitely has power! I used to never cut mine, tiny trim occasionally that’s all… My hair was all one length down to my waist.

Now it’s still quite long, to my mid-back, but with mild layering and blond highlights that look very natural.
When I say I want to cut it, I mean just a few inches and some more layering, but nothing drastic. Still waiting until Venus retro is over, though, because I’m never at ease with getting my hair cut, been that way since a child…

Sam

I have somewhat belatedly realised that saggitarians are bad people to ask for advice about crushes. Usually, a sadge will have a planet or two in neighbour Scorpio – so basically combining these two almost 100% of the time results in the recommendation, “What do you mean, you don’t know what to do? Shag them, obviously!!” and it makes perfect sense at the time.
LOLOL

Krystal

lol!

AKAPluto

As someone with Scorpio and Saggo strong in her chart, I have to SORT of agree, haha. Meaning: I would never give someone else that advice, but I’ve given it to myself way to many times…

Krystal

Same as I! Scorpio in Pluto with a sag for a rising sign. I say if it’s steamy, go for it! But pesky earth signs will keep you grounded, go to those friends for down to earth advice!

akapluto

That “good advice” from earth signs is usually too much of a wet blanket for all my Saggo.

They always say things like, “That’s not practical” or “You have to be realistic.”

BO-RING

flowerchild

I just think it’s great you have a crush, Pi! Shag or no shag! πŸ™‚

My two cents coming from Pisces moon and Aqua Mercury in the 9th house, here, the only thing close to Sag energy in my chart.

Sam

Thanks fc, hehe
He is not around just at this moment and I’ll be 19,000 km away by the time Venus goes direct, so πŸ™
nothing stopping me from tormentimg him by being a fricken irresistible babe (lol) though, in the meantime, and also like doing the grown up thing of, you know, just casually getting to know him a bit better.

Xxxxx hugs to you beautiful

Sam

Pisces moon would be the everything for crushes!! πŸ™‚

Aqua 9h merc, that’s a totally cool placement imo, information of the people, by the people, for the people

Sam

Oh god! I know. Water signs and air are usually good as there is less judgement, and more consideration of the angles…

Porkchop

Hahahaha. I am Sag but with Venus in Cap and Mars in Virgo so don’t think I would be giving out that advice without careful consideration of the full story.

Sam

Hahah, you’re probably what I need…
Ok I’ll shut up now (again) x

LiberatingVenus

My current β€œset & forget” mode is the Nine of Pentacles, a.k.a. The Garden Goddess. Literally and figuratively. Gifted with such an over-abundance of produce in the garden that it is pushing (playing with?) the limits of my (culinary) creativity and am loving it because I have to dig deeper. Gratitude to Ceres/Demeter/Pachamama! Same w/ work – the pentacles are flowing in and I’m right at that productive edge between overwhelm and relishing the opportunity to perform under pressure. Historically, if life has taught me one thing it’s that I’m really good at bringing my A-game under these kinds of… Read more »

orion

I guess it would be a usual Venus retrograde thing, that I am going through a separation with a partner and a marriage that was begun a few months ago

Methinky

Oh soz, that must be a bit tough. Hang in there πŸ™‚

luckyshell

Anyone else having a strong desire for a makeover? Mine has been brewing for about a week now. I keep thinking back over the multitude of hairstyles I’ve worn (Gemini w/ Venus in Leo) and trying to figure out which version of me to embrace. The weird part is that I LIKE my hair right now. So what’s up? Is this just a Venus Retro vibe? Cause I’m about five minutes from cutting my own bangs on impulse. MUST. HAVE. CHANGE.

AKAPluto

Oh yeah big time. I’ve been receiving conflicting astro advice. “Yes get a makeover, no, don’t get a makeover. ”

The urge is quite strong, though, and likewise having to do with hair- the Leo influence, of course. If you have Venus in Leo by birth you must REALLY be feelin’ it!

AnkhRising8.0

Totally, you guys (see below). Personally, I’m trying to find the happy medium between all-out/no take backs, and doing nothing. As far as my coif is concerned, I may have found it. Huzzah πŸ™‚

AnkhRising8.0

(My natal Venus conjunct my Sun in Scorpio, 8th house. Transiting Venus in my 6th.)

LiberatingVenus

Serendipity – somebody just asked me about this…! Short answer? *NO*, IMO! Especially not at the station and not at least until she backs out of the Saturn square – Venus Rx in Leo amped up by Jupiter can easily increase the β€œtack factor”….it can be like channeling your Inner Dolly Parton, for realz! Venus rules our aesthetic sense and when she’s retro this is more likely to be skewed. When she goes direct, a look we might have totally loved during the retro may seem whack in retrospect. If you want to make a significant change to your appearance… Read more »

luckyshell

I dunno guys… It’s a pretty strong urge!! 😎

akapluto

How did you know I was thinking about going platinum blonde?

Dang it.

virgo kathleen

My hair is a mousy dark blonde and I’ve been thinking of dying it darker.

sphinx

Haha! Me too, been staring at the scissors with edgy eyes.. 😯

rachel

I am having strong makeover urges as well, but I’m trying to hold off until I have a better sense of direction about the larger life makeover I’m embarking on, then evolve my look alongside that… but yes, every day I look in the mirror and GROAN.

I never got into pinterest but I need inspiration and direction so I might become one of those people, haha

flowerchild

Yes, makeover urges! Once the retro ends I will get my hair cut, it’s too long, but I also want more ‘face framing layers’ as I feel I look a bit blah with the too long hair and it’s sort of an aging look.

I have an appointment for my usual highlights for Aug 6th so that’s during the retrograde but won’t be anything new or different, so I hope the retro won’t mess with this!

I want new clothes too but that will have to wait not only until the retro ends but until I can afford it!

rachel

I spent years growing my hair down to my waist after going through the ol’ experimental phase many girls have from 17-21. Now that it’s FINALLY where I wanted it I’m thinking I’ll take a small amount of length off and do some kind of Kate Moss-y layers thing. My hair is very fine so I can’t go too crazy with layers but I feel like Little House on the Prarie right now and need to do SOMETHING. I too will be waiting until retrograde ends before I do something different. πŸ˜€

Iris Aquacat

Yes! I chopped long dark wavy hair off to scalp n dyed it platinum. Liberation baby! Literally- the man I was dating dropped me a hotcake- it was great! But I wouldn’t do it during Venus Rx- could end in tears

Lady L

Yes! I just chopped off 10cm (4 inches) of hair!

Looks and feels FANTASTIC, if I must say so myself πŸ™‚

I did it on impulse even if moon conditions are not 100%, and that is SO UNUSUAL for me.

Now shoulder-length blonde. It’s like a longish bob really. Can still make a ponytail if I want. I may just keep it this length for a while.

Electro

I chopped off my hair when Venus hit my 3 Leo Sun. It was long and I chopped it to just past my jawline with layers.

Husband is Venus in Leo rising and his hair is super sexy right now. Shaggy and crazy curly. He shaved his beard too.

Electro

Uranus retro next to my 18 Aries SN? Okay, this should be interesting.

jtgirl40

Thats exactly my NN

Electro

Nice. I’ll be old as dirt when Uranus reaches my NN.

Methinky

It is so weird, I have had almost everything cancelled or rescheduled this week plus unexpected events making me late or early or in the wrong place….this time thing is so weird. And then our lives changed forever when my husband was retrenched and woah! Everything is looking so slippery and real. And our best friends moved in up the street today. And we found and returned a scared little lost dog to a very happy lady. Just trying to make sense of things. We are certainly structurally rebooting. And very, very lucky to have amazing people around us.

Krystal

The same thing is happening to me in regards to everything being cancelled. Something I was waiting on finally returned. A Toro who I didn’t expect to seek me out is – while a Scorp that I expected to give me their time has been flaking on me. Everything has been a shuffle! I have to admit, the tarot gave me the Ten of Cups in my 5th house (falling in love or meeting a soulmate) and if the tower and the ace of cups show up it will be steamy. The King of Pentacles in my 7th House who… Read more »

I have my hand on the plug but my instincts tell me to eat Granny Smiths and stare at the wall. Re-alignment in the spaces in-between. Time moves on and the song never remains the same.
