Moon’s in Libra and the need is for balance, the Middle Way as the Buddha taught.
Moderation not polarity as is going on in the world today.
Feb 26 the Familiar Cardinal T- square energy is in effect as Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn and opposes Uranus in Aries.
VENUS conjuncts the Asteroid Pallas ATHENA the WARRIOR GODDESS and visionary strategist @ 12 degrees Aquarius.

Women need to express their values and their love and femininity in an Aquarian detached way. Athena is known for her cool, clear, calm, detached temperament, as she is slow to anger. She is noted to have only fought for just reasons, and would not fight without a purpose.
ATHENA was originally an ancient snake Goddess who was not born from Zeus’s head. That is a later add-on as the Greek Pantheon was already shape shifted into more male dominated system. Athena as Zeus’s daughter springing fully armed from Zeus’s head is of course a metaphor for Zeus’s using feminine intuition and strategies at war.
She is the Goddess who Athens was dedicated to. She is wise, courageous, inspirational, brought civilization, law and justice, mathematics, olive oil, strength, war strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. She was called Minerva by the Romans.
The citizens of Athens built the Parthenon to honor her. There was a statue of her with piercing eyes, a helmet and an extremely long spear. Athena’ statue also had a crystal shield with the head of the Gorgon on it.Therefore she was originally an Amazon from Libia A large snake accompanied her and she held NIKE the goddess of victory, in her hand. Now it’s just a brand of shoes.
Her name originally meant DIVINE INTELLIGENCE.
Plato noted that the citizens of Sais in Egypt worshipped a goddess whose Egyptian name was NEITH and which was identified with Athena. Neith was the war-goddess and huntress deity of the Egyptians since the ancient Pre-Dynastic period.
Athena also had a owl on her shoulder. The Owl symbolizes all-seeing night vision, oracular vision, intuition, dream power, Lucid dreaming, shamanic shapeshifting abilities. The owl is the harbinger of death in many cultures. Owls fly silently, stealth is one of their powers. In even more ancient time she was a personified owl and a bird goddess.
There were though many Warrior Goddesses in all cultures. That part of the myth is not unusual.
But the patriarchal version of her mythology certainly made ATHENA the only woman ever to be born NOT FROM A WOMAN an impossible event. This was a serious separation from Nature.
WOMEN it is time for you to put on your helmet and fight. We must own our own ancient warrior-Goddess status and fight for our rights. This is a movement which has already begun.
Remember blacks are fighting for their rights after being slaves for hundreds of years. Jews tell the tale of being freed after 300 years of slavery every Passover for the last 3,000 years.
WOMEN ARE STILL ENSLAVED EVERYWHERE EVERY DAY IN THE WORLD TODAY
We have been made slaves of the PATRIARCHY seen as sexual pleasure objects to be used abused and dominated for the last 5,000 years since the Patriarch Abraham and other warring male dominating cultures destroyed the old ancient nature-loving peaceful Goddess Worshipping cultures world wide. This happened in China, in Africa through Islam and Christianity. Druid and Indigenous people in Australia, Peru and smaller tribes worldwide kept Life in Balance and honoured the earth and the feminine through all women even in secret “old wives’ tales” . Yes Western women have some freedom or I wouldn’t be able to write or think or say these words. Chinese women also have a great degree of freedom and equality now within a communist structure of non-political freedom.
Call upon ATHENA to bring you strength, vision, courage, daring, DIVINE INTELLIGENCE. There is much fear against women re-owning their strength again. The Terrorists Muslims the Shia law is expressly to control women. Women are still sex-objects and not free and equal.
You need to see how entrenched this is in every aspect of our culture.. Women don’t even see it because we have accepted that this is the way it is. It isn’t normal or in balance. We have been living a lie.
That is what we need to evolve towards if life on earth will last.
Call upon DURGA the great warrior Goddess who slew all the demons and saved the world.
Bring your heart and your diving intelligence into alignment and act on behalf of your own desire to be free and equal. That is an Aquarian ideal.
Note where 12 degrees AQUARIUS Is in your own natal chart to see how the Goddesses VENUS And ATHENA are bringing you self-worth and the ability to defend yourself and all women’s rights to be free.
ALSO BOYCOTT LANDS’ END PRODUCTS- they stopped supporting a pledge to help women’s freedom which they had advertised hypocritically bending to ultra-conservative Bible thumpers after they did an interview with Gloria Steinem.
