Daily Astrology for 28/7/14

Blessings to all,

Between now and 6:39 am, 28/7/14, GMT + 8 (five and a half hours away), we will be experiencing the powerful effects of an overlapping double yod. The base is made up of Chiron Retrograde & Neptune Retrograde sextiled Pluto Retrograde, and they point to an impressive stellium involving the Sun, Moon, Jupiter and Lilith, all in Leo.

When you factor in the exact opposition of Venus in Cancer to Pluto in Capricorn at 2:35 pm later today — the energy of Venus charges and permeates this powerful double-overlapping yod.

Venus in Cancer loves the Hearth, the Heart and the Earth. After the intense New Moon prayers we held, I feel her loving energies completing Pluto (crisis, transformation) in Capricorn (superstructure, superego, status quo, achievement, success construct).

And much to my surprise, this energy feels sweet – grounded – and able to handle the challenge of Pluto – emerging out of the blue – and the double yod that it points towards.

This configuration essentially bridges the Love of Earth, of Divine Mother (Venus in Cancer) with Sun-Jupiter-Lilith-Moon in Leo.

My friends – this is a profound moment of birthing. Venus is Cancer is healing us birth this new world. Pluto in Capricorn is providing that impulse, and urging us to bring our visions into manifestation. And these visions – these inspired energies that desire completion, joy, authenticity, energy – are strongly supported by the stellium in Leo.

Let us manifest a world in which the inner child and joy of the Child can be freely expressed, without fear, without limitation.

Much love to all,

VENUS, BABY, HEAR ME OUT…. (Ode to the Venus-Pluto Opposition)

Venus Baby 2Venus, you’re going to want to Rise,
Take on the Titans, Battle in the Underworld,
With style, sass and Pride.

Venus, you’re going to want to Die,
In your Soul-Shaking, Heart-Breaking Flame,
That knows All with a Thousand and One Names,
Venus, Baby, you’re going to want to Cry.

Down, down, you go and Up, Up you Fly.
Death to Birth, Born To Die,
Ways of the World,
Heaven, Earth, Heart, Sky.

Break, just break,
Shatter into a million pieces,
Burn, just burn,
Temper them with your Flame.

There’s no Shame in starting again Baby,
No Shame in Tears or Mourning,
Grieve the Gone, Love the Dawn.

Rise once More, Phoenix-Girl,
You think he was the End-All of your World?
No, no, sweet thing … Just the Beginning….

Ways of the World – Sacrifice, the Old,
Birth, the New – That Sun-Lit Gold-Pink Sky.
Girl, don’t you know?
You’re the Goddess of the Dawn, That Golden Glow…
Radiance, My Love … Yes, it Shows!

So – Spread those Wings, Honey,
And Fly, Fly, Fly!

It’ll be Sunrise Soon…
Wake Up, Wake Up Morning Star!
Time To Shine!
