Alchemy of Marriage, Astrology by Tara Greene

The ALCHEMICAL WEDDING, As Above, So Below

A very important aspect forms January 19/20 which symbolizes one of the main goals in human life, in spiritual growth and transformation, the Alchemical Marriage.  We are all seeking our divine other-half, the Beloved, our soul mate.  The Sacred Marriage within means to be whole, complete in oneself, as we are originally and to love fully.

You are all invited to participate in the Wedding party. Everyone gets to catch the bridal bouquet.

Neptune, ruler of spirituality, dreams, Oneness, Bliss, the Unconscious, completion and Hollywood blesses this rare event. Whether it is the glamour of Hollywood stars we are watching or planets, they both carry symbolic, synchronistic, archetypal messages. Hollywood and its films and movie stars are often very prophetic messengers perhaps unconsciously. They are playing out archetypal roles.

The old Hermetic maxim is “As above, so below.”  And as without- outside, so within. Everything is a mirror. George Clooney recently announced to his new wife Amal when accepting his award for lifetime achievement “I don’t know what kind of alchemy brought us together, I am so proud to be your husband.”  A prophetic speech.

What is this Alchemy?

The transformation which turns Saturn which rules lead, trials, obstacles, negativity, karma, into Gold- the Sun or the Light, the Source itself. This process describes how we are to meet the challenges and difficulties in life. It is a complex process of spiritual, psychological, even physical, mixing and burning away of various elements; like Mercury, planet of communications, and analysis, into the Source/Light/gold. All of the symbols/metals/planets together form this Alchemical Marriage. When planets combine their energies in conjunctions, oppositions and squares this is also a type of Alchemy.

The powerful “as above” of this Alchemical wedding is a conjunction, which literally means sexual union between Mars and Neptune in Pisces which is exact January 19 @ 4:08 pm PDT/ 7:08 pm EDT/Jan. 20 @ 12:08 am UT.

Mars, is sexuality, passion, desire, fear, defenses, raw masculine life giving energy. The warrior God lays down his arms when he is joined to Neptune, the God of the Oceans. Mars is being baptized by Neptune’s Holy waters of spirituality, Oneness, Bliss, compassion and forgiveness. Pisces, the last sign symbolizes endings. This symbolizes a martial purification and cleansing from bloodshed in war. It is also a spiritual initiation of the masculine towards spirituality and the Feminine.

Who is the Bride?

LILITH. Lilith is in Virgo, opposite Mars and Neptune which are in an exact conjunction in Pisces at 5 degrees 55 minutes. Oppositions symbolize a tense relationship, where we must find a balancing point in order to have peace.

Lilith, symbolizes the original woman, the ancient Archetype of the Goddess who existed before Eve. She is a Virgin Goddess, in the original sense, whole, complete unto herself, and she answers to no man. She was worshipped world-wide by hundreds of names since the beginning of time. 

The Patriarchal {Saturn} religions have sought to destroy her worship and to split man from Nature to dominating the earth, which they have done for the last 5,000 years. Lilith is beautiful, sexual, fertile and powerful. She is also the projected {Neptune] fear- {Saturn} of men onto women’s’ sexuality and power

The original Genesis Biblical story of Lilith’s refusal to be dominated sexually be Adam in the Garden of Eden is the original archetype of this split.  If women {Lilith} refuse to participate in man’s power games, then there are no relationships or children and no life continues. Lilith symbolizes man’s own vulnerability and fear of being rejected, abandoned, and unloved, which has caused him to dominate and control women. The women have the power, and the men know that. This story also symbolizes where the healing needs to take place, through the sacred alchemy of marriage. The masculine energy needs to learn to surrender and to trust the Feminine in order for life to flourish on all levels, psychologically, spiritually and practically.

Lilith, in early Virgo, is an earthy, practical, workaholic. She helps us to be conscious of our bodies, of the earth, of boundaries, and limitation of what we harvest.  Lilith also symbolizes the duality of sex, {Mars} and death, {Saturn.} The French call orgasm “the little death.” For true intimacy, both egos must die to become one, {Neptune}. 

Saturn in Sagittarius, symbolizes the Father, Patriarchy, the LEAD in the Alchemy, that “old tyme religion.” Father time, Lord of Karma is also involved in the alchemy in a waning square to Neptune but still in the marriage party. Someone’s got to give the bride away of course.

This planetary alignment signifies a Masculine surrender, a laying down of arms and ego games, a return to the Goddess, to worshipping the earth. Mars is transformed into the Positive Masculine, a Knight in shining armor, protecting the Holy Grail, the Feminine, and his own feeling intuitive function. This is the image of the transformed new Aeon masculine. Lilith also learns to compromise, and give man another chance to respect her in her beauty power and glory. This is the alchemy.

And there is more. Venus, Goddess of women, is in revolutionary, freedom loving form at 19 degrees + of Aquarius, the sign of higher consciousness, opposite Jupiter in Leo Retrograde. Jupiter in Leo symbolizes the Sun King. Venus in Aquarius, is a revolutionary new Feminine in relationship to the golden, optimistic, creative, self- expressive Masculine, the heart of power with Jupiter in Leo. The “golden crown” of power is worn by he who has the biggest heart, who gives away the most. Jupiter is ancient ruler of Pisces. Mercury, the “ring bearer” is also close by to Venus as he has been for the last few weeks.

MARS and NEPTUNE marrying Lilith in Virgo with Saturn in square dissolves the old projections {Neptune {and fears- {Saturn}, of Lilith, of women. This planetary alignment signifies a Masculine surrender, a laying down of arms and ego games, a return to the Goddess, to worshipping the earth.

Mars is transformed into the Positive Masculine, a Knight in shining armor, protecting the Holy Grail, the Feminine, and his own feeling intuitive function. This is the image of the transformed new Aeon masculine.  We need positive Masculine energy to help save the environment, to respect women, to live in balance. Lilith also learns from Neptune to compromise, to surrender and give man another chance to respect her in her beauty power and glory. We are all originally one whole and complete.

It is a mystical transformation. Carl Jung said that there are only two emotions. Love and Fear. All the planets are involved which represent these symbols. Only when we love and accept and surrender our fear can we meet the Beloved within and achieve the sacred Marriage. .

Bring down this powerful cosmic symbol into our consciousness so that we can be transformed by marrying the opposing forces of Love and War of Martial desire and Fear within. Only when we experience this Alchemical change can we become unified, balanced, loving. Then we are the Gold, the Source and we can we see all others as the Beloved as well.

This Sacred Marriage, the Beloved within, is what we are all seeking. The great Persian poet Rumi wrote thousands of poems devoted to the Beloved.

 “When you find yourself with the Beloved, embracing for one breath,

In that moment you will find your true destiny.

Alas, don’t spoil this precious moment

Moments like this are very, very rare. – Rumi

This is a truly wonderful and very positive omen and expression of divine love.
