The Sabian symbol for Venus at 27*Leo is: The luminescence of Dawn in the eastern sky. Dawn brings the new day. Venus has crossed the face of the Sun and is now in her role of Morning Star, the bringer of Wisdom. We can learn to love in new ways. And Wisdom and Love will be our guides.
The Sabian symbol for Mars at 26*Scorpio is: American Indians making camp after moving into new territory. The Native people were so attuned to Nature that they could adjust quickly to new situations. They know what's required in the situation. Another perfect image of Wisdom: the wisdom of the body, of nature.
This leads me to believe that if we are attuned to the requirements of the Uranus/Pluto square, our Venus and Mars nature will carry us to a higher level of engagement, with each other and with the world at large.
The heart of the Sun (Venus in Leo) (enlightenment???) brings an awareness of the need to transform our destructive desires (Mars in Scorpio), pressuring us to take others into consideration rather than following our selfish, ego desires. With Venus in the last quarter phase of her cycle with Mars, she is forced to decide what she really loves. Venus rules our heart chakra, so let your heart decide what's important, then focus your desire (Mars) to transform the situation. With Venus in Leo ruling the Taurus South Node, we have to leave behind our illusions about love to see the reality of Love. Then Venus becomes the true Queen, Psyche weds Eros and we actually believe in the power of Love.
Another strong influence is the grand cardinal cross between the Aries Moon/Uranus, Ceres in Cancer, the Libra Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. All cardinal signs signal a time of new beginnings and mark the turning of the Wheel of the Year, as Libra turns it from summer to autumn. Happy Equinox! It's time to turn within to make changes, both in our internal life and in our collective life. Ceres is a dwarf planet, orbiting between Mars and Jupiter in our solar system and is named for the ancient Mother Goddess, birther and protectress of Life, bringing back the Wisdom of the feminine to be included in this new world we're all birthing.
So how will you be spending this wild full Moon? I'll be attending the wedding of my eldest son Michael and his beautiful bride Ashumi. We've been promised surprises and have been told enough to know that this wedding will break with wedding traditions, for they've made it a unique celebration that reflects both Michael and Ashumi's beliefs about their love and their life. I can't wait to see what they've created. What better way to use the energies of this beautiful Harvest Moon?
Happy Equinox and Bright Blessings on your harvests.
