October 26 @ 7;16 am PDT/ 10:16 am EDT and 2:16 pm GMT Venus is at the very heart of the SUN, called Cazimi. If we think of Venus the Goddess of Love and Beauty symbolizes the heart itself then Venus in Scorpio symbolizes the shadow heart being purified in the Light of the heart of the Sun.
This day and point mark the inception of the Phoenix cycle where Venus is consumed in the flames. This alchemical point is a cauterizing, a burning away, a melting down,a fiery process of alchemy of dying into the Sun’s light and therefore absorbing the gift of Light and Gold that is the Sun preparing for a rebirth.
With Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, this is the point in the Dark Night of the Soul when all hope is lost, when the ego is totally destroyed and surrenders, let’s go and gives itself up to death. As the cosmic Myth of Inanna the oldest known poem It is at this very moment of touching our own mortality that rebirth and transcendence begins.
The spark of light in the dark is the ember from which all is created is rekindled.
The last time Venus was Cazimi in the heart of the sun was during her last venus point on June 6, 2016, note the 6/6/16 significance.
The Sun and Venus join every 9.5 months which is the length of a human gestation cycle. The Sun and Venus move from one conjunction, inferior to the next superior and so on. A constantly forming cycle creates a Pentagram shape. T Every second time the sun and Venus meet they create the beautiful pattern on Love. In 8 years the whole cycle is complete. And Venus creates a rose pattern in this cycle as well.
The Heart, the rose, and the pentagram are impressive enough cosmic symbols but Venus is also linked to the ratios of Sacred geometry the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci Sequence.
On the Tail of a Taurus Full Moon ruled by Venus which is Retrograde, this auspicious date October 26 is considered to be highly fortunate as Venus is considered to be on the Throne of The King. This makes her a Queen, a Sovereign in her own right. Venus can influence and work magic now in ways she never can. She is wearing an invisibility cloak, we cannot see her in the Light of the Sun but we know in our hearts that she is there. If you witnessed Venus in her rare crossing in front of the sun on June 2012 you will remember how powerful this was.
At 3 degrees Scorpio, you will want to circle where that degree is in your Natal chart. This is a point of New Beginnings, love rising from the ashes and the shadows. After deep psychological excavation, we are given the promise of new life. It is like a variation on the Eleusinian mysteries.
A lot of this Scorpio rebirth energy is about deep self-love. I feel this energy myself and it seems to be what the world needs now Love. Venus in Scorpio is and will continue to be a very deep dark soulful journey of dismembering our egos like Inanna in the descent. Venus turns Stationary on November 16th but Venus will not bypass her retrograde degree until December 18. Venus remains in Scorpio until January7/8 2019. Venus entered Scorpio on September 9. She returns to Libra on Halloween and remains in her home sign until December 2nd.
Spend the next few days with Venus at the heart of the sun basking in the light. feeling the warm and tenderness of the heart after the chill dark night of the Soul spent forlorn in excruciating pain, crying and wailing from loneliness from feeling abandoned and desperate. This is the point where our hearts and souls have warmed anew, where we feel that we have faith that there is indeed light and love everlasting burning from within our hearts and souls.
Venus at the heart of the sun also reminds me of Woman of the Apocalypse
The Woman Clothed with the Sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. She is pregnant and about to give birth. Chapter 12 of Revelations written in AD 95.
Sit proud on your throne of Golden Light. You are sovereign a Queen. Light the way of the heart for all to follow.
sending you blessings during these great times.
