Venus Conjuncts Spica - September 5, 2021
Sunday September 5, 2021
Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo gets a visit from Venus this weekend. Exact conjunction is a Sunday Sept 5. Viewable just after sunset.
Vibrant Bright Venus joins Spica in the sky....boosting us with light, showering us with LOVE and JOY. A very auspicious alignment. Enjoy!
Key Qualities: Knowing, Celebration, Completion
“Spica speaks to the deepest part of us, bringing our depths up to the surface, so that we may know beyond doubt that we come from love and return to love in every cycle of existence, whether that is a lifetime or a breath. It takes us into the stillness of our being, the knowing that is beyond knowledge. It guides us to acceptance of the essential oneness of all life. There is a natural response to arriving at the knowing of oneness which we might call celebration. It is as if the burden of the illusion of separation, in being released, also allows a joy to bubble up within us, and that joy seeks expression.” - from heaven on earth.co
“In the days when all we knew about our world was whatever we could see, when we stepped outside and looked up at the heavens, and beheld the vast array of stars, it was (and still is) such an uplifting experience. In time, as people began to notice that cycles in our lives coincided with certain patterns of the motions of the heavenly bodies, and this was the birth of Astrology. One might say that we have projected our meaning of life onto the objective stars in the skies – and one must ask oneself why did people do this? And why has it lasted over thousands of years and is still being practiced today? For anything to stand the test of time, there most definitely is something deeply relevant to it in our lives.
As people observed the stars and earthly phenomena, they collated experience and noted down about 30 of the most brightest or most influential stars in the sky. One of those stars is the star called Spica. Astronomically we know that it is a binary star system, but I will be referring to it as “a” star.
Spica is the bright bluish star in the wheat stalks held by the Lady in the Sky – the constellation Virgo. It is regarded by all sky cultures as one of the most positive stars in the sky. In most cultures, the constellation Virgo was seen as the Goddess. In ancient Egypt, particularly the later periods, it was seen as the Goddess Isis, and the star Spica represented or embodied her son, Horus. In later Christian traditions, the constellation was associated with the Virgin Mary and Spica with the Christ-child (there is much research into the possibility that Spica was the biblical Star of Bethelehem). Others have the constellation representing the Goddess with Spica the star in Her hand or upholding some form of produce of the earth (most usually wheat).” - from spicaastrology .com
A Whale Window
We have a powerful sky alignment and dance of the Sun, Venus, the Moon, and including Mercury and Uranus too. The Sun, on its ecliptic path in our sky, slid along the sky to the tail of Cetus beginning around the new moon on March 14. The Sun and Venus traveled together, getting closer and closer to each other until they met up on March 26, in conjunction, right above the tail of Cetus in the sky!
This auspicious sky alignment opened what I am informally calling the "Whale Window".
As Venus emerged from the sun's glare in the beginning days of April, Mercury came sliding in along the tail. On April 11, the new moon joined the Cetus party. Mercury conjuncts the Sun on April 19, as the planet party nears the head of the whale. Here is where we bring in the coding and note the placement of Cetus A. (see previous blog post for more info).
Friday April 23, Venus, Uranus and Mercury move close together over the head of Cetus.
Then they make some cool weekend geometries as they code and dance around one another in the sky Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th. Today (Sunday the 25th) Venus is directly under Mercury. Anyone feeling a tug between head and heart?? This current alignment is indicative of these energies.
There is nothing to look at in the sky with this alignment window. It is all happening quite close to the sun, and during the daytime. This is a FEELING window. Enjoy!
Did you catch a glimpse of the moon tonight??
While the precise full moon is tomorrow afternoon here, it certainly has a full breathtaking capacity tonight.
It is in a section of the sky that is rich with galaxies. Near the constellation Virgo.
In particular is right across from Virgo A/ M87 tonight.
Also triangulated with Spica and Arcturus.
Tomorrow eve, at the moons fullness peak, it slides in a flat triangle with Arcturus and Spica.
With this flat triangle alignment,
Tomorrow morning, the moon sets with Spica (the brightest star in the Virgo Constellation) around 6:30 am. And the Moon rises with Arcturus at around 7:30 pm (EDT).
Mars & The Pleiades
Mars slides underneath the Pleiades Star Cluster The Seven Sisters.
IT IS A PERFECT VIEWING WEEK THIS WEEK.
Tonight, where I live the sky just cleared and the full moon rose strong.
In the western sky, the prominent red looking star you can see now is Mars. There is also a orange red, slightly lighter in color Star up in that section of the sky. That is Aldeberan. (Have the moon at your back and look the opposite side of the sky.)
Aldeberan and The Seven Sisters are in the constellation Taurus.
Mars is joining them for a week or two. It is the closest Mars Pleiades since 2006, and won’t come again until 2038.
Their closest approach is March 3 & 4.
All week is good viewing. Mars sets by midnight. So it is best viewed an hour past sunset and before 10 pm.
Just above Mars is the Pleiades Star Cluster. If you aren’t familiar with finding it in the night sky, Is has a fuzzy visual quality.
If you had binoculars, you would see it dazzle. Almost looks like a tiny Little Dipper.
It’s worth the trip outside on this crisp
clear night to see it. And you can bask in the glow of the Full Moon in the eastern sky.
The Venus Transition: Evening Star, Dark Star, Morning Star
On June 3, 2020 Venus is in inferior conjunction with the sun as seen from earth. This means that Venus is moving in its orbital path between the earth and the sun. This is a powerful, powerful alignment. It is “boosted” by the fact that two days later, on June 5, 2020 – we have a lunar eclipse. So, this week, Sun, Venus, Earth and then the moon joins in to make an exciting “line up” in the solar system.
Venus is now invisible to us on earth. It is so close to the sun’s position in our sky, that it gets lost or “swallowed up” in the bright glare of the sun. In ancient cultures, this was a very important cycle to pay attention to. It heralded many changes and was so important that many cultures build huge markers and temples to honor and co-participate in this dance of Venus. Some ancient cultures believed the “god or goddess” associated with lights in the sky would visit the underworld during such periods of invisibility. Many myths and traditions are rich with tales of these descents and ascents into and back out of the underworld. Transformational things would happen for the culture and the beings in these myths around these times.
Venus has been such a constant bright light for us in the evening sky for the end of 2019 and all of early 2020. The last Sun Venus alignment was August 14, 2019. It then climbed higher and higher into our twilight and evening sky. The planet has had some speculator alignments with the crescent moon, always timed right during or before a big gateway. It “visited” and code exchanged with many solar system buddies.
It conjuncted with Jupiter on November 24, 2019. Then cruised by Saturn on December 10. Made a spectacular showing with the Crescent Moon on December 28, and again Feb 27. Flowed right past Neptune on January 27, again with the Crescent Moon. Venus joined Uranus in the sky on March 7. Reached greatest elongation on March 24. Venus joined the Pleiades in the sky in a diamond display on April 3, 2020 – a once every eight years position. Venus was at its greatest brightness on April 27. Then nestled into a horn of Taurus the Bull with Mercury on May 22, as the Sun aligned with the Pleiades during a new moon.
We are in THE MOST powerful global realignment and recalibration and transformation in recent history. When folks look back at our present moment, it will be the stuff of great stories of transformation and rising up, reemerging from a time of deep darkness into the light. Just as you have all year, let Venus guide your way.
The Rainbow Feathered Serpent was the Mesoamerican deity who was said to “midwife” and represent the rebirth and ascension of Venus back into light. As the Morning Star. Dawn Star. Heralded as a very powerful one. Venus and its cycles and star light were very important and present for our ancestors. Transcending the “fear” that we would be consumed in darkness, or that the world was falling apart or coming to an end. Sound familiar? The return of Venus as a star in the morning sky gave some cultures a “relief” and a chance at rebirth.
For now….the next three days in particular…we are on the descent. Moving with Venus into the depths, and the darkness. Into the caves of creation within. Remember that you will, we will emerge again. INTO and AS the light.
May 4, 2020 - Mercury Conjuncts Sun
Mercury is moving into superior conjunction with the Sun today, and into tomorrow.
Seen here from earth, Mercury is lining up in the sky with the sun, and sliding behind the sun and out of view. This astronomical alignment is called a superior conjunction.
So, for a day or two it is like the sun engulfs and consumes the other planetary body, and obscures and blocks us from seeing it directly.
Mercury is the plant closest to the sun. It is “quicksilver”, as it moves fast, and orbits the sun in 88 days. Mercury has been associated with messenger energy, known in some cultures as the “messenger of the gods”. It is also associated with the mind, perception, learning, thought and reason, communication, wit, wisdom, expression, intellectual adaptability, eloquence, mental flexibility, easy integration of knowledge, diplomacy.
The areas of the body Mercury is associated with are traditionally the lungs, the central nervous system, blood, arms, hands.
Conjunctions offer us a strong flows of energy and communication. When two celestial bodies align in the sky, they amplify each other. The boost each other. Expect more Mercury energy and codes coming through the sun rays today and tomorrow.
MARCH 7, 2020 - VENUS PASSES BY URANUS
Venus continues it's activating journey, and passes Uranus in our night sky
On March 7, Venus is 2.2° to the right of Uranus. The planet is brighter than Neptune, which Venus passed in January. In a dark sky, Uranus is visible in a dark sky to those with good eyesight. Use a binocular to see Uranus more easily.
As we have been doing here at Inner Space throughout the year for the planetary alignments, we can use sound codes to work the energetic alignment and code exchange of these two planets as they meet up in our from earth view nighttime sky.
You can listen to both of these "as heard from space" planetary recordings (thanks NASA - we love you!). Note how each one makes you feel. Where is there harmony in and with your field? Where is there discourse or discomfort as you listen to these. Take the time to listen to one then the other. Note how different they are. By listening and tuning in to each planet, you are assisting in the balancing and alignment work that presents itself at each planetary alignment.
Of course, looking at these celestial bodies in the evening sky, or even on a star map app if you get cloudy weather is another great method.
PS - these planetary sound codes can be pretty intense to integrate for your human body mind field. Make sure you are somewhere comfy to receive.
FEBRUARY 26 & 27, 2020 - CRESCENT MOON AND VENUS
FEBRUARY 26 & 27 - CRESCENT MOON AND VENUS
By the end of February, the crescent moon is back in the evening sky. On February 26, at the end of twilight, the moon is up in the western sky to the lower left of Venus. On the next evening, February 27, at the end of evening twilight, Venus, again up in the west, is nearly 7° to the right of the waxing crescent moon.
Catch a glimpse!

Stargate Opening February 1 & 2, 2020
On February 1st and 2nd, we are “gated” by two spectacular stellar risings, one just before Sunrise, one just after Sunset. The Eagle rises just before dawn (around 5:30 am EST). The Eagle Nebula (Messier Object 16) along with Aquila, the Eagle Constellation. At 5:30 pm EST, Monoceros, the Unicorn Constellation rises in the east. These stellar bookmarks sandwich a day which is already potent in earth keeper ceremony and significance. February 1st, Cross Quarter holiday.
We have reached the cross quarter holiday!! Could you feel it yesterday? The light from the sun was extra bright, extra luminous. The night sky also was “extra texture” with the star light.
The solstice and equinox divide the year into 4 “quarters” or season. Delineated by June and December Solstices, March and September equinoxes. The halfway point between a solstice and an equinox is called the Cross Quarter day. February 1, May 1, August 1, Nov 1. All Powerful days of earth keepers and earth based traditions. The Celts called this time we are in Imbolic. You can feel it in the sun light, in the air, how we have reached a tipping point to spring! (or toward winter southern hemisphere friends)
I had a particularly potent and powerful sacred time in Andara Light Meditation yesterday morning. We have had a stretch of cloudy weather, and the blue sky bright sun morning was so welcome. I nestled into my “crystal chamber” and got to communing and tuning in with my andara team. They asked to be gridded and rearranged. One grid was for Unicorns. Very pink and brown and clear and rainbow (did not snap a pic of that one). Then I was rearranging and cleaning and the root beer browns wanted a grid display too. I set it all up and then sat in meditation….and kept hearing….”The Eagle and the Unicorn”. And my mind would go, do you mean Eagle and the Condor? Nope, kept getting “Eagle and the Unicorn”. Ok.
Was in an eye closed section of contemplation, and then opened my eyes to THIS
Spent some more connecting time, to the light, and reading and tuning into these light codes.
I heard again "The Eagle and the Unicorn" and then “the Four Pillars of Creation”. Huh, interesting….that phrase…the four pillars has come up several times this week. In a session at Inner Space, in connection to Egyptian temples and obelisks. I had been nudged to dive deeper into this meaning. The Four Pillars. I decided to do some intuitive online research and searching around….and saw a page about The Eagle Nebula. Ding Ding. And the Pillars of Creation. Ding Ding Ding Ding. Well, that’s a match.
Often with I get “Eagle” my mind goes towards Aquila – the Eagle/Hawk Constellation. We are “Star buddies”. Me and Altair and Aquila. But this was a new angle. And just look at the picture of this amazing active rich star producing region:
It looks like this Andara crystal that was shining out the eagle holographs today as well. I then opened my Star App to investigate further. TO check the alignments of this nebula, M16 – Eagle Nebula. I scanned through to see when it rose, as I woke up well before dawn this morning, and often get called awake by stars during the night when they want to communicate. Lo and behold, this time was when the Eagles (BOTH nebula and constellation) were rising in my eastern sky. Good Morning!
Following the inner voice of guidance for “the Eagle and the Unicorn” it is time for “The Eagle and the Unicorn”….I decided to look up another star friend….Monoceros, The Unicorn Constellation. Well, now…Monoceros rises just after sunset here, bookending this glorious light encoded day.
The Eagle and The Unicorn indeed!
Happy February Friends.
May the light guide your way!!
PS - We even have a theme song ;-)
Creating Neutral Together
Neptune Venus Alignment
Opposite Quantum Spin
Discord and Disharmony
Defining Inner Neutrality
A band of disharmonious discord waves moving through
Experiencing lots of boundary setting “stuff”
Like personal space Is not being honored, requests and communications not going smooth, and boundaries being crossed and violated
Have some stuff between them to clear
Looking at the planetary bodies….we find polar opposites.
Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system
It also spins counter direction from the rest of the planets
Atmosphere is carbon dioxide and nitrogen
Volcanoes and lava
Neptune is the coldest planet
It is the farthest of the eight
Atmosphere is hydrogen and traces of helium
Ice and Rock
Compare their structure and makeup:
Try this inner space vibrational exploration. Listen to the sound codes in these recordings from space.
How different the two planets sounds are!!! (see links below)
Do you feel more at home with one or the other? Can you bring yourself to a space where you can receive both stream of sounds?
Polar Opposites.. And they spin in opposite directions.
And, if they were to be compared or modeled after electrons orbiting a nucleus- sun as nucleus, planets as orbiting electrons (solar system as model of an atom) – these two electrons would be opposite spin rates.
Spin creates magnetism, and an electron pair is a neutral field, where the spins balance each other out to neutral.
Today is a day to state clearly what works for you, and what does not.
It is a day to establish clear steady boundaries for your personal space.
It is a day to declare what you will tolerate and what does not belong in your field, your inner space.
Then, call forth in your field zero point, balance point, harmonious relation.
Within your space, establish balance and harmony.
And in addition, create a neutral center place.
From this neutral you can spin in either direction, you can be comfortable in either field.
Up or Down
Left or Right
+ or -
You can hold a state of oneness and neutrality by embodying both at once.
