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.

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.
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.

wrap it up

Venus (love, money, art) has entered Aquarius and is in a tidy T- square with Saturn (restriction) and Jupiter (extravagance).
Venus is square Saturn and Jupiter (internal conflict) and Saturn and Jupiter are in opposition (something someone else does).

I could go on about the strain on the contents of your wallet, or lack thereof.
I could go on about angsty love woes or the lack thereof.
(Boring !)
Venus is sextile (opportunity), and Mercury trine (ease) Uranus, the intuitive, innovative change-up planet, so…yes…you will be getting insights into love, money, art and Venus ruled things….
but, until then … Venus in Aquarius does its own thing….so here’s the deal~

Venus is cloth, Saturn is knots, and Furoshiki (風呂敷, furoshiki) are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth.
It is artistic, eco – friendly ~ and how cool, cloth square: *presto – change-o* it is giftwrap/ purse/ sarong..etc…

Saturn is wrap and conservation, and Sun is generosity.
Sun enters Saturn – ruled, Cardinal Earth Capricorn on December 22.

I Use is the Capricorn motto.  They are the builders, the practical, career – driven, students of the school of hard knocks.  Built to last, they stick around when the going gets tough.
Capricorns are ruled by Saturn … faithfulness, tact, discipline, diplomacy, rocks and crystals and the Earth you are standing on.
