Astrology is a tool to help us understand what the Universe has set in motion. The times we are living in now are truly extraordinary. We are being pushed and pulled like bread dough, our minds are being transformed, our spirits are being called upon to join in the revolution, and our bodies are literally being changed via our DNA so we can withstand the higher vibrations we are being called upon to advance towards. The Universe has put the planets in place to create energy that moves things around on the giant chess board. We are blessed to be a part of it - we asked before we were born to be a part of it.
Right now many planets are talking to each other at once. It amplifies the energy we're being bombarded with, and it creates intensity we feel on a subtle level. Maybe you feel spacy, out of it, odd, confused, etc. It's OK, its how you should be feeling.
There is a planet/asterioid called Chiron, the Wounded Healer. His job is to heal your deep karmic wounds by making you endure experiences or events from old hurts, so you can face them and release them finally. This is HARD stuff, and Chiron is now at the center of these planetary aspects. We are facing deep things within = pain, fear, loss, tears, anxiety, etc. Chiron, in Pisces, is also sharing space with Neptune in Pisces too. Chiron is now aspecting Uranus, Saturn, Sun, Mercury(on the 15th moves to Virgo) and Jupiter while it approaches Neptune. Saturn, representing restraint, and Uranus, the unexpected events/ideas/plans planet, are at odds now. (Uranus now could bring you amazing epiphanies or insights - listen for them!) Saturn and Uranus is like a battle between stability and instability. And these two planets aspect all the planets in Leo, causing more push pull.
But Chiron can be the key. He is asking us to release our lives of narrow paths and restriction, and to break free of the past, the baggage we carry around, so we can spread our wings emotionally and be happy, truly happy and free. Whatever has been done to you, forgive and let it go. Whatever hurt you carry around and refuse to look at, open the box and stare it in the face, and cry all you need to cry. Crying is how you release deep emotional pain. Sob, weep, shed a tear...do something to release this old pain so you can be happy and open to the good that the Universe is bringing to us. The Goddess brings forgiveness, caring, fairness, and humanity back to us. Make room for her by releasing old pain. And Chiron in Pisces, the spiritual sign, is the way to release, though spiritual practices.
On 8/12 Venus, the Goddess of Love, moves from Cancer to Leo, joining the Sun, Mercury(15th moves to Virgo) and Jupiter. This can really open your heart, and help you embrace forgiveness for yourself and others. Venus in Leo is dramatic love, loudly shouted love, publicly displayed love, rejoicing in the total "feeling of love". Be a Drama King or Queen, and let the love inside and pour it out to others. Love is what will heal all of us, spread it around, there is no shortage, the Universe makes more if you give it all away. There is more where that came from, always. This powerful Venus is here until Sept 5th. Take advantage of this avalanche of feeling and embrace it.
Friday the 15th Mercury moves out of Leo into analytical Virgo. Your sharp Virgo mind will aid you in decisions and help you feel less fuzzy than you may have felt recently.
These times are like a balancing act. Just keep asking for guidance from the Source...masculine and feminine and you will get what you need, and you will learn that the Universe is there for you - ALWAYS.
Every morning and/or evening you might say, "God please help me to change myself so that I can grow and be more helpful to the changes you are making in the world". And also acknowledge HER: "Goddess I welcome you in my heart and integrate your energies and values and ask for you help in living a life that serves you", helping you to be a tool for her rebirth by embracing the Divine Feminine and becoming an example of compassion. Imagine ourselves as domino's, embracing these energies and helping the world shift into something beautiful as we all come together to create a wave of change.
The Goddess needs to be INVITED into our hearts and life, just like Angels need an invitation. ASK and it is given. I know its hard some days, but you are not alone. And I know you will find there is love and magic in this world after all, because you will get answers, meet the right people, renew relationships, and "KNOW" that you are being heard. And that's pretty darn cool!
