Ancient keys of wisdom

FullSizeRender 3The Philosopher’s Stone

Quick reading for Venus square Saturn.

Saturn is the restriction, the slowing, perfecting, deepening, building, work, time, and the aged sage.
Venus is love, art, social graces, kindness, beauty, finery, flattery, money, trades and partnerships.

Squares indicate inner turmoil that leads to intense growth as we work to use the energies wisely.  Internal metamorphosis.

Reading purpose: to identify what we collectively need to ponder for personal enlightenment, highest growth.
1 Card above is Saturn – the stuck place.
2 Card below is Venus – the giving place.

1 Contrast: (card number 17 or 8)
Seeing the differences, comparing, compensation of energies.  This is further highlighted by 8: gains and reversals, regeneration, Samsāraor continuous flow.
Saturn in higher mind Sagittarius focuses exploratory student/teaching, learning, philosophies – particularly while Jupiter is Rx in Leo.  We compare and contrast former versions of ourselves – what is working and what is not.  Change is imminent, a decision comes.

2 Ereshkigal – Sumerian Goddess of the Underworld.
This goddess is queen of death; descent followed by resurrection.  She, with the face of a lizard, holds burial gifts.  She is derived from a Mesopotamian funerary figure 1K years older than the cities of ancient Sumer.  She is from a time when Above and Below were not so separated.

No one may return to the land of the living.
No one can rule both Above and Below.

Trust the insights that emerge from your depths, subconscious seas hold many keys to unlock ancient doors of wisdom.  Know thyself.

Pisces is strong: Venus (exalted), Mars, Neptune (ruling) and Chiron (the healer) are in the sign of healing, cosmic connections, day & night dreams.  Follow where intuition leads: know your surroundings and see the patterns emerge,  

Keep digging, for discoveries are near, but deep.  Know your deal breakers, be aware others have them as well and act accordingly.

Earth healing is magickal at this time.  Clay, tree, root and stone.
Cleansing via 7 day burial of sacred objects is recommended, as are Earth offerings.
Energy clearing.

Peace

Suck it up, Sweetheart.

Venus into Pisces tomorrow delivers a square to Saturn in Sagittarius through Friday, then lessening.
Creative obstacles must be overcome by walking through, over, around, under what is SEEN – just believe + keep walking.  

Believe in what (who ?) you ask ?

Love, money, relationships ahem REALationships – we are in Pisces here.
Balance, trades, social graces, women, popularity.

Saturn slows the work but we have (Taurus motto, Venus rules) Venusian OPTIONS waiting to be tapped like the mother vein of SOURCE.
Venus in mutable Pisces certainly delivers higher octave creative choices on deck – drowning in a sea of woe is not an option – not with Saturn involved.

Suck it up sweetheart is this sirens song.
Everyone has issues – how we USE the issues is the making of us.
Yes I said US.  Together.
North Node in Libra, y’all.
Work it.  Saturn !   Aquarius is detached, impersonal – if your growth requires becoming more open and accepting, you will explore that with this transit.  (Uranus on south node, Mars in Pisces)

Note as this square perfects, so does Mercury Rx conjunct Sun in Aquarius.  You may be surprising yourself with all you have to offer.  Others will be letting you know as well, messages incoming from all quarters.
Conscious, Subconscious, totems, spirit.

Venus with Neptune will loosen the boundaries Saturn is setting in the sign of looking with our higher mind vision.  Instead we will be USING THIRD EYE higher intuition and emotional connection.

Fear is the mind killer. (Dune)
Build a wall or build a bridge OR – build BOTH.
Intelligently.
Mercury and Jupiter retrograde – higher & lower mind are working out the internal kinks between personal will and collective progress.

Believe in Love
Have Faith.
Whatever that means to you.
Peace

‘GamerGate’ is certainly an interesting turn of events that has boiled over with the astro energies of the last new Virgo moon growing into full Pisces Moon.  Leo Lilith the creative bitch goddess who would not be tamed into submission was conjunct Venus (women) while both were square (friction) Mars bang on Saturn (men) in Scorpio at new moon.

Aries Uranus was exact trine Venus – fire to fire – signaling a head’s up new perspective UPshifts especially in regards to women and – yes, Games – Leo rules !
My interpretation of Virgo new moon (9 days ago) energies here – note Eowyn.
YES.  Good timing, I had.  Excellent choice, I made.

First, I am not a gamer.  The only things in my house that could be considered even remotely game-ish are several shelves of cards ala divination decks, a glow in the dark Ouija, and a RocknRoll Trivia deck.  I am very good at Tetris, and I played Wolfenstein for  about 2 weeks in the early 90’s until I started dreaming of detailed search and destroy massacres in my sleep.
Creepy Dream Hangovers drove playing that game to a screeching halt.

I’ll link the vids  below, as well as this timeline backstory that outlines what lit the fuse, let you fashion your own viewpoint.  After reading several posts about it, the first thing that came to mind was Lara Croft who I have always understood to be a strong smart female protagonist in the gaming world.
She is the only one I could think of immediately.

A rugged archer/archeologist kicking ass raiding tombs appeals to me.
Do we finally have a kick-ass female Time LordExactly.

Creators, can we just make more games featuring smart, strong female leads ?
We do exist.  Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Also note incoming Pisces Full Moon finds us under a very yin sky: Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto Chiron are all placed in introspective, reactive signs.
Worth a thought, yes ?  Note yin is not gender specific, thank you !

Why I Feel Bad For – And Understand – The Angry #GamerGate Gamers

Game lovers are actually getting crazy weird on/offline hate/harassment/death threats from other gaming freaks about games.  WTF people ?  Chill.

I am no man !

“All your words are but to say: you are a woman, and your part is in the house. But when the men have died in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman. I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death.”

“What do you fear, lady?” he [Aragorn] asked.

“A cage,” she said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”

Leo Venus/Lilith square Scorpio Mars/Saturn

This is an aspect of great inner strength and personal conviction as well as balanced, applied, rock steady effort when expressed high qi.  It is also an aspect of personal power – neither women nor men will want to take the bit, give up the reins.
Find the yin/yang balance within.  Then work outward.

Creativity, regeneration & re-invention of traditional power structures are restless, going head to head forcing inner metamorphosis.
Rise to meet your destiny. 

Overcome your personal challenges re: authority, desires, career, oppression, money, headstrong women, men (particularly older men) by facing your fear and/or each issue one. at. a. time.

Fixed sign squares indicate long held structures in need of WILLpower directed towards positive change.  Personal problematic stagnations are glaringly obvious under this sky.
Diligently work your own change rather than try to honcho someone else’s.

peace
