Venus in the Morning Sky, 2018-2019 — When the Curves Line Up

Quote

‘Venus returns to the morning sky in late 2018 and shines from the eastern sky until the middle of summer 2019. The photo above (Figure 1) shows Venus on September 17, 2017, during the last morning appearance. During this appearance Venus has conjunctions with Jupiter and Saturn, and a close approach to Mercury…’

Notes from the Compost Pile

So, how are we doing, folks? Is it full steam ahead or fits and starts? Is there graceful easing or groping in the fog? Of key importance, no matter which, is a bizarre question for you from way out in left field: where’s the sea-level line and where does the ground begin to rise? Riddle me this! 

There’s so much antifragility packed into this new moon in Virgo. The ruler is in attendance, if somewhat bedazzled, and the conjunction forms a sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio and a trine to Pluto rx in Capricorn. With some closer – yes, closer yet –  examination of the less attractive underpinnings-and-persons of our world stage, we can progress in our removal of more – yes, even more – rif-raf and debris on the scene. We can edit the stage in pursuit of best practice in everyday affairs. We can simultaneously optimize that which passes critique to keep. Upcycle the compost. 

In a general offering like this, I would advise looking to the realm of Taurus in your wheel. Note the themes and life sphere that this house occupies for you for ways in which to dig in/begin assessment with your new moon intention. (Subscribers are welcome to complimentary inquiry.)

But there’s some ointment on the fly. Whether that’s medicinal or a ‘bogger’ in my estimation will require personalized study of your unique Here and Now

The Great Waters (in all its potential forms) insist upon merging with this Virgo consolidation of our yin and yang. For some of us, taking some time apart from busy-ness will be crucial to our perceptions and sufficient for gaining traction. For others of us, the need to flexi-serve until mentally or physically exhausted over this span of days may be the way we will paradoxically attain the higher ground. These are examples on a spectrum we can liken to our sacred point on My Way merging with Our Way. All points along the Way are valid, serve a purpose and are meant to be fluid for best mind-body-spirit health. For this reason, All of Us would be wise to consider appraising those matters which we’ve labeled ‘static’, ‘off limits’, and even ‘Keep Out!’.

My new moon wish for you is symbiotic flow. 🙂

Neptune (the All-One) and A More Holistic and Profound Understanding

Narrative and story are tools of interpretation. They do not and cannot represent absolute truth. Within the evolving person’s life a narrative can change many times. Alternately one might apply a multitude of narratives to a single issue so that in effect one can see themselves simultaneously through many prisms and thus have a more holistic and profound understanding of their experience…

Narratives carry what might be called energetic information…Ultimately when one frees themselves from attachment to any particular narrative, then narratives cease to have energetic impact and clarity comes.  – excerpts from the numinous frontier by Monica Cassani

symbiotic  ADJECTIVE  Biology 

1. Involving interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association.  ‘the fungi form symbiotic associations with the roots of plant species’

1.1 Denoting a mutually beneficial relationship between different people or groups. ‘the reader can have a symbiotic relationship with the writer’    (link)

Full Moon: 3 Pisces 12

 

Instead of assuming people are stupid when they don’t know something we think they should perhaps we should instead assume the context of the others life is different than our own and therefore different things have taken priority…I am now practicing meeting people as they are…with ignorances and bigotries too. We’ve all got them. I want to meet people in my community…rather than listen to the choir…mirroring back my own biases. – Monica Cassani (link)

On Submission
The affects of a Pisces Full Moon are generally subtle in rising to fullness. It has felt like that for me as I prepared this post..! There will be a lot written and said about the uber-powerful earth trine and Venus square Pluto as well as Juno’s contacts with Pluto and Jupiter. But I find myself typing away here about (don’t worry, English follows) the North Node opposite Black Moon Lilith sextile Chiron, square Uranus.
By house, the ruler of the full moon ‘continually feeds’ the Pisces moon event. Those with natal placements in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces (and those of us aware that the tap is on) can draw washing water from the All One Source. In Scorpio, moon ruler Jupiter lights up the dark, draws attention to the squirmy underbelly of relationship politics/mindless diplomacy. That which is not spoken of can take center stage in your mindscape, welcome or not. It could very well take center stage between you and someone in your intimate circle. I’m thinking family, lineage, progeny, bonding cues, the roles we are expected or think we are expected to play; how unseen, unarticulated pressure is very much a part of Real Life.

If we can float awhile in contemplation of that which has become apparent, it may actually morph into a shape and quality that provokes a better response, engenders a more spacious ‘I Am’ and begins to remove the awful weight of ignorance-based prejudice. We’ve got a three day Here and Now opportunity to choose to soak – while coolly flexing our stellar intellectual faculties – on a matter or theme that comes to mind as you read along here.

Getting Results
The moon meets up with Chiron in Aries on the 29th presenting the potential need to stand and fight. Or stand and confess. Or stand and affirm. You’ll know if you’ve done the soak-and-think. With Venus at home with the lights on in Libra, the virtues of equality, justice, fairness and interconnection are strongly supported. Wouldn’t it be nice to help someone see that what’s wanted is mutual? Wouldn’t it be nice to realize this if you find that your approach to the issue lacked foundation and/or a broader spectrum of truth? I think many of us will marvel on the other side of this revelation space…

Attn high yin persons: Black Moon Lilith in Aquarius is quite a unique animal; her manifestations here will often be due to matters of equality in intellectual and in non-conformist/somewhat edgy pursuits. The physicist who still can’t get her mathematics theory published, the X-games athlete with few sponsorship offers because she won’t oblige set promotional schemes, the simmering creative non-binary person stuck in a culturally adverse town; languishing perceptions of STEM pursuits, behavioral sciences, and pro-defense strategies; the indignation at soul-flight being crushed for no valid reason.

These examples are meant to make the archetypal point but pull that sky template down to the local ‘We Are’ and chances are very good for progressive/future-oriented movement through Our Personal endeavors and a ten-fold increase in awareness as concerns status in relationship. Wondering how you came to ‘settle’ here? Have you recently gone a few paces on from a crossroads decision that feels somehow off vibe? Give yourself permission to pause. This template indicates an updated version of the road map is nigh but you must be willing to consider and contemplate its existence and contents. You want that updated version; it will save you precious time and energy.

It should be noted that putting one’s self in dodgy environments, in the company of those who lack transparency of motive, can set one up for trigger experiences. If you’ve got a chip on your shoulder – or you’re dealing with insecurity in Others, avoid water cooler encounters; in your daily travels and interactions, stay calm but vigilant. On the upside, this is an opportunity to truly SEE, perhaps in a most uncanny or startling way, that the only validation necessary for starters is My Own.

Attn high yang persons: If things are getting confrontational, step back and consider the roots of any anxiety-creep/flaring of temper and how subliminal expectations may be blocking key nutrients from reaching your emotional core. Stop starving your Self. Take up the offer below. Act upon your desire to SEE if you are missing out on anything. Mars is stationing direct for you, right on time.
