Let's not forget that some of our sistars are going through their SATURN RETURN time:
Thank you for your Saturn return article. So helpful. Having a rough time... second return and your article helped SO MUCH.
FIREY WOMEN BEGINS TO KNOW HER TRUE SELF! HER CREATIVITY ABOUNDS!
Good Morning Dixie,
Thank you for the information. You're very funny calling me a "fiery woman" as I've never considered having fire signs that balance my water signs. No wonder I'm always so conflicted! Next time you're at the gallery, look at my wall. I painted "Paisley Pisces" after reading the links you sent. No doubt this will bring more artwork as I ponder this new information about myself.
Thank you, you're a total gem!
A MOON LOVER, SHE HAS HER MOON IN the 8th HOUSE! TRANSFORMATIONS! SHE IS A TRUE TROOPER! A sistar from Canada! Above is her MICK JAGGER MOON! CAN YOU SEE IT? (I can't......Will someone please draw me a picture and send it to me so I can see it too?)
Hi Dixie! Yes I remembered what you said about that and I really identified with it. Thank you for reaching out, I feel very special to be remembered. I am very much a child of the moon, I look up every chance I get. I have at least a thousand photos. I've included another for you... a Blood Moon and the shot I refer to as Mick Jagger because I see his sunglasses and nose and his famous lips, just tilt your head a bit to the right, hehehe... I couldn't get any eclipse shots last night as it was overcast here. I'm fascinated with the Moon.
I am really psychically sensitive, I'm a fighter, I stand up for my own beliefs, I have an eclectic style, I turn away from 'fashion' and trendy and clicky, rather I love to mix up old and new with comfort and beautiful. I'm sentimental for my childhood and memories, and I have been able to heal myself from a bitter, abusive marriage, two of them actually, and for 10 years I have been looking after myself, moved across the country to start a new life at 40!! I bought my own house, and am managing TWO branches of the largest rental company in the world and I just began volunteering with a non-profit group, co-facilitating in a group of helping ladies Rise Up and find their inner strength to get on the same path, away from abusive relationships.
I didn't realize it until recently, but I am feeling very empowered and successful, despite how I felt down and unhappy with my lot.
This is my 2nd year following you Dixie and I am grateful for people like you who are educating the world about the Divine Feminine~!
You truly are a Goddess to me! Happy Valentine's Day and many blessings to you xoxo
ANOTHER MERCURY RETRO DECEMBER to JAN 2017
You are an earth angel, a wise woman and a deep seeker.
I am so moved by the depth of this truth telling of our present
I feel filled up to the gills.
I feel the yin and yang of this time.
I was unable to see the lights this year and you have
shown me how to see them in the deep feminine within myself.
Ha! While I was writing this my tablet froze up and I had to reboot, of course Mercury retrograde.
Blessings to you.
Thank you Gienne, I loved what you said about finding the light within your deep feminine within! Happy New Year!
Hi Dixie, Thank you for your message today about Mercury Retrograde. Right now being in Portland is en-lightening & hearth-warming to my crone self. I'm watching people ages 25-45 and feeling their bouncy bountiful hope- filled purposeful love of life. When I was their age I needed & found a shaman- like mentor
Who almost daily showed me that I was wasting my fire, I was busy burning useless matchsticks, He coached me to take my fury and make it my fuel. To make a hurricane lantern of myself. Like me he was a child of an alcoholic. Young people are so beautifully fiery! At age 70, my fiery side is a quieter steadier faithful friend who lights the sometimes stony dark path for me. I agree that on earth we are all now seeking awareness & healing for the wounded masculine. So grateful for today!
great comment about not wasting your FIRE! Yes, this is a good time to get back in touch with what that is! Dixie
MEN SUBSCRIBE TO FEMININE ASTROLOGY TOO! and I adore them because they know that inside each of us is both a masculine AND a feminine side!
MERCURY RETROGRADE SEPTEMBER 2016
Mercury went into retrograde (my real estate agent is a Virgo) the day escrow was supposed to close on my childhood home. Had it not been for your wise advice to "slow down" it would likely be much tougher, instead, I am "enjoying" the opportunity to receive the gifts Mercury BRINGS.
My GOLD MEDAL OF HONOR
My dear Dixie,
You have spent so much energy and soul work in the pursuit of a life well lived, that it is time to award you the Gold Medal for a life of service to family, friends and community.
May you thank your coach, the Goddess, for all her care and loving.
just love the way you girlfriends know exactly what I need to hear even if the stars are bringing in their shadows. Thanks Giene, and back to you.....this amazing golden woman with the STRONG ARMS!
When asked if she would like to have me put her Moon Sign on a web page and describe a little about her one girlfriend said:
'driving myself nuts trying to locate information - dug thru old files - finally found 'correct' information - had been updated in 2004 when I had a vedic reading....
Marj, (she gives me her birthdate) - 'can't remember why you were asking for this..
'hope all is well. These are interesting time - last night I woke up with message that: all is well, I and everyone else are experiencing 'difficult planetary alignment' right now - this 'pressure' will not last for ever - stay positive.
What a darling reply, you are not alone. I've noticed many of us forgetting what we were doing lately! (Neptune in Square to Saturn really makes it harder to stay on task without drifting off).....I'll think of another astro reason when this transit is gone - Mercury retrograde! yes, that's a good one!

From 'Sharon Gets Crafty with her Moon in Virgo":
the video is as beautiful as the artwork, which is as beautiful as the artist.
AWESOME! from ECHELLE
Loved the video of Sharon. I had never seen someone who worked in such fine detail do their work. I can see the VIRGO talent she has! from Barbara
FROM VENUS AND GATEWAY OF THE HEART:
Dixie, thank you for the poignant reminder to open our hearts. Trauma closes the heart, inner work is to find the courage to open again.
Thank YOU for sending this back to me as I needed to open my heart today when I saw my bank account balance in the - yes, that's a minus. Soul Sistars, that last new moon in Scorpio hit my 8th house which rules banks and bank accounts!!!!!@!!blah
From our Sistar Deborah:
What synchronicity as Venus passes through the gateway of the heart!....in December 2015
I waited to read Soul Sistars' astrology report until this morning after I woke from a profound dream.
I dreamt of a mountain lion, knowing in my dream she represented leadership and was gently pursuing me through a house in which I could not escape. I got disconnected from Steve (divine masculine) and KYRA (divine daughter) and knew while in the dream that I was avoiding taking on the mantle of leadership.
On the 7th (the fourth gateway) I will release my Hormones in Harmony book to the publisher for formatting which will thrust me out into the world. I am working with a manufacturer to produce the largest batch ever of Genesis Gold going into great debt with high hopes to sell it all through the publicity package I invested in with the book. I am working with another online marketer to build sales funnels, and all of this will culminate in February through March - I assume corresponding to Venus' final gateways. Years ago in my lunar astrology reading, March 2016 was predicted to be a time of great abundance. I assumed then with no other possibilities that it would come from an inheritance from my father. I now see this is my own creation.
Interesting synchronicity with the cowardly lion image in the Venus descent as I am using Dorothy 's journey through Oz as a theme in my book. We are all like DOROTHY on a healing journey, thrust out of our comfort zone by the tornado of dis-ease (or other tumultuous life events) listening to the GOOD WITCH of our intuition, following the YELLOW BRICK ROAD (in my book this is healing your hypothalamus the maestro of your body's symphony with Genesis Gold), meeting the COWARDLY LION (how hormones affect our emotions), the SCARECROW (how our neuroendocrine system affects our health), the TINMAN (how our immune system orchestrated by our thymus in our heart chakra either protects or attacks us in accordance to our level of self compassion) and how the WICKED WITCH (our fears and doubts) thwarts our progress. In the end, we learn we've always had the RUBY SLIPPERS to go home (the power to heal ourselves).
Mom has been my muse throughout the writing of the book- She guided me to a writing partner named Rose (heart chakra healing) who kept calling me DOROTHY and that's how I first made the connection to Oz. All of this began after Mom's birthday in September (the first gate - taking off the crown of authority, letting Mom go and accosting the matriarchal mantle given to me by my grandmother in a dream one year earlier). During the second gate, I shifted my perception by using story to teach in my book (the second gate - putting down the staff and shifting my perception). In November, I completed the bulk of the writing communicating the wisdom I've gained over thirty years of practicing holistic intuitive integrative health care (third gate - taking off the necklace).
I just received the forever in glass necklaces which hold my mother's ashes. I made four of them one for each of her daughters and each are uniquely different. Mom had an issue wearing necklaces, couldn't ever speak her truth. Yet she passed onto me a similar glass pendant necklace which she used in a release ceremony, cutting ties with her mother, my sisters, and me before she died.
Whenever I read Soul Sistars astrology reports and recognize all the synchronicity, I am awed at my connection to the cosmos.
I can't wait to see as Venus completes her gateways and then ascends to heaven on her return journey. I hope you'll keep us all posted!
Love you dear friend,
In response to SATURN in SQUARE TO NEPTUNE and HOLD FAST TO YOUR DREAMS, October 2015:
My current job has been exceptionally challenging for as long as I've been working there. I recently saw a job listing with the federal governments Bureau of Ocean Energy Management for a Renewable Energy Specialist. It's a cut in pay but feels like the right position for me. I feel in my heart that I just can't get my life together because I'm on the wrong path. When I saw this job I felt like everything I've learned and done has prepared me for this position. I really, really hope I get this job. Any prayers, thoughts and support would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thank you again so much!!! Wishing you and your family the very best.
You deserve the job that will use the most of your incredible talent! I have said prayers and will send more. Let me know if you get the new job so we can all share in your JOY and your true LIFE PATH!
Here is what one gal said about "A LULL IN THE STORM: January 2015

"NEFERTITI" BY SHARON RUSSELL
NEFERTITI HAD A VERY STRONG VENUS IN HER CHART! AND SO DO SHARON AND DIXIE!
|I'm thinking about Pluto taking me on a soul journey that is going to be dynamic and challenging. I'm focusing on your emphasis on the need for strength. Sharon's painting of Strength has clues for me: a woman who is grounded, whose eyes are observing, but not rushing, her body balanced and in harmony with her environment. This is a clear message for me to hold during my journey. Your descriptions of the different influences Pluto has on different people has big messages for me--for example to help me remember to slow down and listen to someone else's world view, not to rush in.
This newsletter, has lots of ideas to help me to better understand myself and my loved ones.
Love the fire and love your messages. Can't wait to see venus tomorrow evening.xoxox Love you too!!
In respose to Moon in Virgo and the possibility of feeling depressed (Dec 12, 2014):
|"work is love made visible'
Yes we can! By the Grace of Love
WOW! I SAW IT! SENT DEC. 6, 2014 IN REFERENCE TO VENUS AT SUNSET AS THE EVENING STAR
Linda from California says in response to Feminine Astrology web site:
Waking up on a rainy November morning, I hear music-- The first time I hear music in a dream. I hear four Womens' voices in sweet new harmony.
Five of us are working together to feed our community of 40 women living in a Berkeley co-op.
Everyone works 5 hours per week. And it's our turn: the five of us serving lunch.
We're taking a short break before we start to clean up the kitchen. We're dressed alike for our service work in crisp tuxedo shirts and black slacks. The music has a Jamaican vibe like Lianne La Haves or like Sweet Honey in the Rock, or like Homer's, River Nymph Sirens in the film 'O Brother How Art Thou'.
This harmony is a delicious surprise. First I listen, then I just have to go through the door to join them. Will I hold back or join in THE SONG?
I feel included and invited because they laugh and smile, I sing along. I'm a bit raw and stiff, but then I "get warmed up" and join in. This feels good! We're all surprised.
Listening, breathing, sound-making, finding our own voice in harmony with others, we know that our community is real,
"I" become part of "us".
Oh, Linda what a beautiful dream of a community of women responding to the call of our Great Mother. I hope when women read your dream they will feel a part of our community of WOMANKIND no matter where they live. Some of them may even begin their own women's circles!
Your newsletter is so wise, loving, heartfelt, informative, and visually beautiful . . . just like you two sistars! Thank you for it.
With love to you both,
Dear Dixie, Your site is a great comfort. I love your positive approach!
Thanks from Megan
Dear Dixie, ...."Coming back to astrology, which I’m starting to learn more about, it is supposed to be a big transition time for the whole world. My friend told me I have just entered a balsamic moon phase for the next 3.5 years, an ending of a 29 year cycle. I have never been one to wait for things to come around, I have always been driven to reach my dreams and succeed in my projects. But this time around , it feels like a waiting time, something I’m not used to. I don’t see much of what’s coming. Some days I wish I could grab onto something – a healing group, a women’s group, a book that inspires me, a spiritual group, a creative circle – but nothing inspires me, nothing fits quite right. I cant seem to attach myself to anything. Its lonesome at times and yet I somehow feel I wont find anything on the outside to identify with. For the past year I have had more men interested in me romantically than ever in my life. I can’t say even one of them lights a spark. I really wish I would feel something for even one of them but I don’t." Thereza
Dear Thereza, BALSAMIC MOON TIME is a time to REST and COMPLETE your journey. Yes, it can be hard because the light you are looking for out there is WITHIN at this time! and yes, men get attracted to you - Balsamic phase is very YIN, that means it is feminine in nature and it pulls into itself. Men are attracted to your great SOUL BEAUTY at this precious WISDOM MAKING TIME. They love your authenticity. Dixie
SO MUCH TO DO, Yes, many changes while Pluto is Square to Uranus until 2015, one dear sistar writes from So. California:
Dear Dixie, "Change: Cosmic and Personal: Wow! So much has changed this year for me, for us! As of September 20th, my beloved Steve is retired...I thought it might be like when both the kids were finally out of the house--another honeymoon--yet it has been very busy for him as he works around the house fixing and building, securing our nest...and I seem to be floating (my balsamic time perhaps?) ...a strange place for me to be...very much like my river of consciousness dream that I shared in circle...
I am floating through all this transformation.... noting the joy and the suffering yet somehow not invested, not grasping onto the shore which crumbles into the flowing river, narrowly avoiding the rocks which seem more like reminders of my past beliefs that no longer serve...somehow floating through it all, virtually worry free, attending to that which must be done (healing patients in my integrative and in the conventional practice, softening stuck docs, shifting my profession, helping my mother/business manager transition into automation with new technology and an awesome grant writer lady who has transformed her health with Genesis Gold, while mothering my adult children from a crone perspective, and for the first time...interacting with my family of origin in joy)
There is SO MUCH TO BE DONE....
Yet I am just floating, allowing spirit to usher me through this great transition, and all that needs to be DONE gets accomplished as I focus on just BEING!
I can feel a great shift in my body, in every cell, as my DNA reconfigures and my dance is one of Love... Healing by Being... Really quite ok with all that is happening for I can see the light in the darkest of places, the most tragic events....it's all Light...all perfect in the divine perspective...and my children both are experiencing their own dramas with a higher perspective that brings them peace...my family of origin, not quite there yet...but a hug brings them closer to realization that all is well...
Loving you, hugging you, and appreciating all you do to enlighten us!"
Deborah M. Ojai, CA.
Dear Sharon and Dixie,
"This is my first time ever to read about astrology. I want to learn a lot more! Sharon, your ART has connected me to my feelings of passion and helps me have the courage to committ to my feminine self...I have tears in my eyes."
Thank You both so much,
Jennifer from Nevada
This comment is from a woman in California who has just stepped into her LAST QUARTER MOON PHASE.
"Thank you so very much for the reading. I can feel this phase in my life now. The other day I became very aware that I was so done with the "Church" I have been with on a deeper level. The threads of that part of my life seem to be fading away. They are being replaced with a sense of community withint the "truth" that is to be found everywhere.
All I want to do is to be with a few select friends and be in my home, my shelter, most of the time. My journey with my son's illness takes me into the deepest parts of myself where I can only "be". There is very little action I am called for. Just support from my heart and home.
I really feel this phase, thank you for making it more clear. This information is very needed in this world. Thank you for being a channnel for the Divine Mother to speak. I am going to create an actual Harvest Basket for my Soul to hold symbols of what I am harvesting."
Dear Dixie and Sharon,
"Putting my astrology chart together with your images and descriptions gave me a whole different take on my life. I have a really busy work life right now....but I take these lovely images into my heart and allow my femininity to be itself. Yesterday I drove around with Sharon's image of "Capricorn" in my car all day. It kept me company and reminded me of an important goal I have for myself, not to be in such a hurry, but stay on my track in a more enjoyable way!
I feel like one of the Soul Sistars now!"
THANK YOU for this! I think it's great - clear, flowing, easy to understand. I just wish I were more in my waxing moon instead of my Balsamic Phase....3 to 4 years is a long time to wait! I think it's amazing that your're able to turn out this website/book, etc. amidst all that is going on for you.
YOU ROCK! Love, Laurie
"Dreamtime" from "Cycles of Becoming" by Sharon
Comment on the comment from Dixie to Laurie......
Sometimes it is hard to believe a particular cycle will take another three years to complete! TRY TO ALLOW for time and SOUL to have its' value in your life. When you allow TIME to have its say, then the experience that is your Soul's NEED will follow. I need this reminder every day!....read your report again but this time....let your SOUL IN ON IT!
When I learned that I am in my Balsamic Phase I let go of my rational mind...thinking...thinking...thinking...and let my heart take over! This feels better. I also feel like you gave me permission to REST which I so needed. Thanks for your feminine way of helping me look at my life.
Send me your comments.....and you will see them here! (later on, maybe a BLOG)
