Venus Mars Moon in Aries

Venus Mars Moon in Aries, Mars suddenly released from his time in Pisces where he felt slightly intoxicated in the mystical fishbowl, into his home sign where his passion can surge forward, supported and encouraged by Venus whose usual reserve and modesty is swept aside by the Aries frequencies. Moon passing past them yesterday and today amplifies the effect of these archetypal energies on our emotional, inner worlds. On Sunday Venus and Mars meet in conjunction in the sky, a Hieros Gamos, marriage in the heavens, bringing a new era in relations between the masculine and feminine.

Aries fire is about taking action, and action is best taken consciously. Many people will be simply lifted into the passion this weekend without knowing why and may find that passion can turn to obsession, bedlam and unquenchable desire. Grounding is necessary, and the grounding being offered by the Sun is in Pisces, suggesting we will find our roots best in the spirit, especially in the divine feminine…. we have been conditioned to think of the father god as the judge and punisher of our passions and worldly pleasures, and until we are able to see that He also enjoys our loving and playing, we can put our souls in the care of the Mother aspect. She is so strongly present in the world now that even a Roman Catholic priest who ‘died’ and was brought back to life by doctors in the USA is telling the world that the god he met while out of his body had the tenderness of a Mother.

We are shifting to a time when ever larger numbers of us are shifting our perspective to embrace that as well as our individualities we are also the whole – the divine Self that exists throughout Creation, in all things. The Cosmic Self is evolving through us, as us, with us and within us. This knowledge can take time to sink in, but when it is felt and lived as well as ‘known’ it changes how we interact as humans, it opens potent energy channels between us that affect other people and environments in vastly profound ways by putting unconditional, universal, pantheist, passionate love at the centre of all aspects of our lives.

Out of the paths of the morning star they came
Into the little room of mortal life.
I saw them cross the twilight of an age,
The sun-eyed children of a marvellous dawn,
The great creators with wide brows of calm,
The massive barrier-breakers of the world
And wrestlers with destiny in her lists of will,
The labourers in the quarries of the gods,
The messengers of the Incommunicable,
The architects of immortality.
Into the fallen human sphere they came,
Faces that wore the Immortal’s glory still,
Voices that communed still with the thoughts of God,
Bodies made beautiful by the spirit’s light,
Carrying the magic word, the mystic fire,
Carrying the Dionysian cup of joy,
Approaching eyes of a diviner man,
Lips chanting an unknown anthem of the soul,
Feet echoing in the corridors of Time.
High priests of wisdom, sweetness, might and bliss,
Discoverers of beauty’s sunlit ways
And swimmers of Love’s laughing fiery floods
And dancers within rapture’s golden doors,
Their tread one day shall change the suffering earth
And justify the light on Nature’s face.

A DAY OUT OF TIME

Pisces!  Last sign of the zodiac, where consciousness seeks to merge with the whole in emotional and spiritual union.  The two fish in the Piscean symbol represent Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, and her son Eros, God of Love and Desire, shapeshifting to escape the father of all monsters, Typhon.  Two because of the duality inherent in this mutable water sign: Piscean energy can be that of the saint or the sinner, the erudite philosopher one minute and the psychotic fool the next.  Thus is the mysterious game in which we find our selves.

February 19th, 2015 feels like a day out of time.  Just before midnight last night both Sun and Moon, having reached new moon conjunction in the last degree of Aquarius, waltzed together into Pisces.  The Aquarian month began and ends with a new moon, and has contained within it 3 weeks of Mercury retrograde in the sign, the Messenger planet moving forwards again with a week of Aquarius Sun still to go, helping those of us involved in the transformation of human consciousness to spread the word.  Humanity has been receiving massive cosmic waves of Aquarian energy, which contains within it the impulse to reach for greater awareness, understanding of the ‘bigger picture’.  Now suddenly the waves will take on a water nature, pushing us to also deeply FEEL that picture, BE that awareness in compassionate action in the world.

On this day 6 heavenly bodies are in the Piscean sign: Mars and Venus are at the end of their cohabitation there, where for several weeks they have been encouraging a mystical engagement with life and deeper bonding with the people we care about.  Sun rules our outer personality, the Moon our inner, emotional world;  the position of Mars tells us something about how we channel the masculine polarity of our consciousness and Venus the feminine.  All together in Pisces this day they are supporting us to find, feel, appreciate and deepen our sense of ONENESS, of SAFETY, of TRUST in the loving wisdom that underlies and generates our existence.  Neptune is Pisces ruler and is in his home house, and Chiron, the wounded healer is there also.  These two may be magnifying the effect, fielding the comets and meteors of doubt that others may want to throw into our own personal solar systems, enabling us to build a secure zone of SELF PROTECTION AND CONFIDENCE with which to step forwards into the creative energies about to come our way once Mars and Venus move, tomorrow the 20th, into fire sign Aries.

Mars and Venus will spend the weekend parallel then conjunct in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, opening a new cycle, bringing new creative energies into play.  This weekend feels like a cosmic love-in coming in the heavens, the conjunction is known as a Hieros Gamos, a sacred marriage, and both planets can be seen in the western sky.  The energy gives us a chance to find a new balance between the masculine and feminine, within ourselves and collectively.  Great things may be born this weekend.
