The day is Dec 1st, of the year 2010. Mercury and Venus both moved into new signs today: Mercury into Capricorn; Venus into Scorpio (the thunderstuck part of the zodiac where she began her retrogradation cycle, nearly two months ago). They will be walking in this Sextile aspect (60 degrees of seperation) until Dec 10, 2010, when Mercury goes retrograde for his unique 4th (and last) time of the year, until just before New Years Eve, going Direct at 19 Sagittarius. So….oOo….what does it mean? Is it special? If so, how special? Why? And, of course: How does it apply to me…? Well……:
She began the beginning of her cycle on Oct 9, when she went Retrograde, passing the Sun in the process, beginning her Morning star phase, going Direct at 27 Libra on the 18h of November (don’t miss her at Sunrise). Venus goes Retro evey 19 months, and is the beginning of her journy to the Underworld–relfecting, reevaluating, reconfiguring her entire set of values and what she considers beautiful and worthy in her life. Relationships play a big part. I’m sure–if it wasnt you, then it was someone close to you–who experienced relationship trauma during this cycle. It’s a healthy symptom of the transit, it makes us stronger. When Venus locks down in lotus, and begins her meditation, most often there is a realization about our partners, and how they arent meeting our Needs. This is the root cause of all our Hearts turmoil in the past few months. Venus reflecting. If you remained with your significant Other, there is no doubt–that right now–you are soaring in newer greater heights than before. This is what happens when she turns Direct (Nov 19). Her Needs become certain (….she stands, and blows out the candle).
…..Venus just entered back into Scorpio–the sign it all began in. Scorpio is the realm of unconscious energies (entities) who are attempting to take over our lives through our emotions. They represent: hidden desires, emotional trauma, obsessions, unhealthy attachments, sex, debt, and death. When working with the Scorpionic, it takes all we’ve got. Courage. Fearlessness. An Open and watchful Heart. Now that she is back–returning from Libra (where our relationships were really tested)–she now sees with fresh, tear cleansed eyes. Our Hearts have been re-awoken. So, for all of you reading this, “Don’t worry….we don’t know enough to worry; everything is working out perfectly–with your Lovers and with Yourself.” The tides of Love and Love lost have crashed in. You can now ready yourself for better days. Days filled with moments pregant ecstasy. The Great Easter Sun…and Venus.
The Mercurial edge to this Story:
Mercury just moved into Capricorn–just two degrees away from the transiting North Node , and only 4 from Pluto. Pluto conjunct the Northnode represents the core atomic power of destruction which has been happening in the world–inside and out of us–for nearly the past year. This vital combination (Pluto/Nn) is challenging all life on planet earth to rebuild and rewrite the scripts of our lives. Capricorn represents Society, the Man, and Integrity. In a Big World way, this transit is what we are worried about: the Economy, the Enviroment, our Jobs. In our day to day, they bring great change and emphasis on the structure of our lives. I believe they are assisting all of us to be more Integral beings, filled with Honor and Strength. No lies, no deciet, just living in accordance with Natural law–Divine law. And now, Mercury is involved, asking the questions. Hopefully, learning of all the best ways in which we can assist in this slow and steady Transformation on planet Earth. Mercury will stay in Capricorn until Dec 10th (6 degrees Cap), then go retro until New Years, at 19 Sag, heading back towards where he Stationed Retrograde at 6 degrees Capricorn on the 18th of January. These are important days–revisting days. Ask the Big questions, learn what your heart and Spirit is longing for most, go after it. Make time! Mercury, the Messenger of Gods, the only planet with enough wit and cunning, to enter Pluto’s world and still return unscatched, is allowing us to enter the deepest, most hidden and profound areas of our Minds this month. He is gathering the information needed, and then soaring like a eagle across the Galactic Center of our Galaxy (27-28 Sag) throughout the Retrogradation, bringing to our Minds all we need to know. Whether we pay attention is another matter. This coming Mercury retrograde is going to be a psychedelic one–lets snot doubt that. Meditate. Write. Read. Go deeper with Astrology. Never a better time! Don’t miss the Signs–they are Everywhere!!!!
Having affirmed our Essential Needs throughout the Venus retro period, and with Mercury now in Hell’s playground (Pluto/NN Cap) soon to turn retro himself, the change we are waiting for has arrived. The Sextile Venus and Mercury are making to eachother right now is Exciting, Informative, and no short of Inspirational. It’s good for Art, its better for Love. So create, do some practice, sit with yourself, and make sure you get some good lovin’! I believe the cosmos. No timepeice could ever compare to the perfection and impeccable timing of the planets and stars. Happy New Love my friends. You deserve it.
