shells of the tribes

Love this pic !  MILES of SMILES on these lovely ladies who are bursting with color and life.  My Mom (Sag rising on my Mars) and Sis (Toro Rising on my natal Moon) are here early for the holiday so this pic seemed apt for a Sagittarius (world traveler) Sun.

Jupiter Rx in Cancer leads to reflection on the tribe – globally and those you hang with privately – opposing Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, the seeking metamorphosis vibration is hashed out between you and those who are of long-standing partnerships and agreements through love/money/work.  Expansion-driven Jupiter moves to explore all cavities inside the shell, (re) consider, who has been witness to a lifetime of personal little deaths & little rebirths as they walk their own path beside/opposite you. 
A retrospective, retroactive navel gaze, if you will. 

Mercury/Saturn trine Jupiter Rx from Scorpio making transmutation and reformation of feelings re: family bonds and perceptions of them possible by creating the perceptual shift in the brainpan first. Mercury sextile Venus from fixed metamorphosis to cardinal go for the gusto can create a shift in the balance for the better if you make it happen.

Sag Sun square Chiron in Pisces is philosophy of healing explored and felt high qi if done properly – find the break and reset the bone – wounded healer knows how best to heal because they are the walking wounded themselves.  Let the spirit of understanding how the one side of you SEES the other side of you be your guide, your compass.  Seek the shift of perception that dwells in the polarities of yourself, make friends with both then find your healthy balance.   

Capricorn Venus trine Mars in Virgo – earth to earth – pure manifestation on the physical plane.  Instinctive forward thrust coupled with amped up think tank problem-solving in regards to any and all relationships/bond/contracts across all time dimensions.  See the patterns, organize and rally perceptual forces to streamline, usefulness mode.  Venus in Capricorn desires achievement, sets goals, has blinders on while climbing – Mars in Virgo is much the same, duty-bound and detailed, anticipating tasks before they arise.

Moon moves to oppose Aries Uranus from Venus-ruled Libra – with Mars trine Venus in Capricorn – heads up you have mail – a message incoming from your past !

In closing, a hearty thank you going out to all my readers, all those who have appeared here on these pages at GMA (obviously, I dig you), also thank you to those who are yet to come, I look forward to meeting all of you.  (deep bow)

Nenya

Cate as Galadriel of Lórien

Cate is phenomenal, just adore her work . . . and she bronzed her elvish ears.
I am soOo on board with that !

Cate is a Taurus packing 5 retrograde planets: Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto; indicating introverted planetary expression in the younger years while finding the personal compass.  Retrograde energies prospect their internal ground – fine tune, hone their craft well into later years, when they blossom outwardly, radiantly.

Cate’s Aries Venus is trine Mars in Sagittarius – Love of passionate FIRE – the urge to explore and express the ethical dilemmas born of the human instinct.  Mercury in Gemini (ruling; strong – also rules Virgo) opposes Sag Mars – gathering the info is only pulling back the bowstring for Cate – the possibilities are endless, but she brings the delicate minutiae to each role (Mars square Pluto in Virgo) fleshing out each character believably.

Toro Sun finds the worth of artistic expression through opposition with Neptune in Scorpio.  Neptune opposite Sun can mean a suffering, battered ego made stronger – a path of transcendence – soul and spirit wants and needs to both experience and express the depths; wrangling, funneling Mercurial communication through the Virgoan combine of self-improvement is part and parcel of healing others through common expression.

Cate has Uranus 0 degrees in (Venus-ruled) Libra –  a boho planet on a springboard Cardinal degree – signifying  a sweetly compelling yet surprisingly uppercutting rebel artistic streak.

Explanation and exploration (Mars square Ura/Jup/Plu) of human frailty reveals itself through an artistic earthbound lesson – the shades and shifts of human ethics. Cate’s artwork is passionate, courageous, surprisingly bold yet brilliantly understated.

The Lady of Light, The Lady of the Wood.

The Lady of Light bears the ring, Nenya, also known as the Ring of Adamant, the Ring of Water, which was made in the Second Age, along with the other two Elven Rings, Narya and Vilya.  Nenya is not normally visible; Frodo can see it by virtue of being a Ring-bearer, Sam tells Galadriel he only “saw a star through your fingers.”

Nenya’s power was preservation, protection, and concealment from evil.

Neptune much ? 
Water.
Concealment.
Preservation of life, nature.
High qi magick, spirituality.

Such is the longing of Pisces . . .gazing anywhere anyplace and anywhen . . . feeling the oceans of life, adrift and ever feeling.

Rescue, healing.
Confinement.

Buddhist non-attachment or barnacles encrusted.  ?
To wear a ring of power is to be alone.

I have them (Venus Neptuner) squared, in my natal.
The present energy – conjunct is sweet – gifty.

(rather than grifty)

The balance is so delicate – always – it requires / re-wires finesse.
Experience is the best teacher.

Merc Rx + Sat Rx

I am drinking it in, feeling, learning, adapting.
May the octaves of love wash waves of cosmic knowledge over you when you need a light in dark places….
