The New Feminine, birthed back in 1969, when we all first saw Earth from the surface of the Moon, has been in exile since the late 80's -- the last time Saturn was in Capricorn. Publishers stopped publishing books on the Goddess, we had reactions to the feminist movement and it seems the Goddess was exiled to the desert for awhile. But there She developed her Eagle wings and now She's ready to fly.
And this time, She is here to stay. It's synchronistic that Oprah gave her marvelous speech at the Golden Globes just before this conjunction. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.
This New Feminine spirit is different from the women's movement back in the 60s. Back then, women wanted outer e quality with men, which we never really achieved. We took on the masculine attitudes of rationality, hierarchy, competition, action and individualism. Now women are banding together to express our own power, different from men's power. But equal to it. It's time we reclaimed the feminine powers of emotional intelligence (not emotional overwhelm like Trump), intuition, introversion, compassion, vision, connection and wisdom. Which our intellect and individuality will support and nurture.
This Venus superior conjunction (out beyond the Sun) occurred with Pluto, taking this new evolutionary phase of the Sacred Feminine into a bigger arena. Adam Gainburg, in his book The Light of Venus, calls this phase of the Venus cycle before she emerges as the Evening Star of wisdom, the transmutation phase of the Venus cycle, when 'The Queen of Heaven dissolved into the very fabric of the kosmos and becomes re-conceived as the forthcoming Queen of Heaven & Earth.' It is a time of 'forging a foundation of open-hearted power and contributing it to a transformed society'. Adam says the 'transmutation is essentially a feminine mode of transformation', one that begins inside, forcing us to serve who we are becoming rather than who we've been.
Having been born in this phase of Venus, I can say that it is a path of great interior growth and consciousness, often accompanied by great loss and loneliness, but which results in a new paradigm of feminine power. It's gift to me was my book, Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World.
This Capricorn New Moon, seeded in the dark and cold of winter, is cradled in the watery arms of Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter in Scorpio can accelerate the recognition, acceptance and integration of our Shadows. Mars supports the New Feminine being birthed, just as men as supporting this new women's movement. Neptune in Pisces opens us to the collective unconscious, the realm of the Anima Mundi -- The World Soul. It is here that we connect to the creative imagination or the quantum field. Out of these cosmic waters,we can water this New Moon seed and create our vision, if our imagination is strong enough and our love and passion powerful enough.
All new life needs a spark of divine fire to quicken its life and the seeds of this powerful Capricorn New Moon get that from its square to Uranus in Aries, re-animating the ongoing Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn waxing square of 2012-2015. So stay open to unexpected insights and happenings. Hopefully, we've connected to our archetypal purpose during Uranus' transit of Aries, especially since Uranus moves into Taurus this May for a few months until it decides to stay there in 2019.
Look at your dream and see what might be blocking you from co-creating it. If it's fear, set yourself free of it. Otherwise, Uranus will blow it up. Follow your heart's hope. Release what keeps you from the bigger vision.
We need to know who we are (Aries) before we can build what we came here to build (Taurus). Remember The Field of Dreams: If you build it, they will come.
The energies of 2018 are aligned with the Divine Feminine. When Uranus goes into Taurus in late May, all the outer planets will be in Earth and Water signs. (Uranus in Taurus, Jupiter in Scorpio, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces). The cosmos is ready to help us. The world is ready to accept our abilities and skills. But we need the sacred Feminine as our foundation, so our sacred Masculine energy can build our vision.
It's time to face your reality. Be honest with yourself and evaluate your life. Do you make the most of your life and your time? Are you concentrating on the old patriarchal fears of lack and loss? This can be a year where you make quantum leaps in your spiritual maturity if you let your inner life of the soul come out to play.
It's time and past time to acknowledge your own Light and let it shine out into the world. What you radiate will come back to you -- so open your heart and let your love shine out!
Walk in beauty, love and wisdom,
Finding the world in the smallness of a grain of sand
And holding infinities in the palm of your hand
And Heaven's realms in the seedlings of this tiny flower
And eternities in the space of a single hour
