Ruled by that fancy fleet-footed messenger of the Gods – MERCURY
MERCURY is aka QUICKSILVER
QUICKSILVER?MERCURY used to be in thermometers, and whose actions, hard to pin it down, describe Gemini’s energies perfectly…Quicksilver is also a toxic poison but can also be used to heal in Homeopathy- don’t mess with quicksilver on your own.
And yes HERMES/MErcury iss most likely already in your head as fillings and can be very toxic to your health.
Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece, Snakes were used in the Oracles at DELPHI. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always,two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA; symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image.
May 20 Moon entered Gemini also known as HERMES
GEMINI is a dual AIR sign.
Mercury is the frequent flyer and chief communicator between Mount Olympus, the above, the Conscious and the below, Unconscious> Mercury/Hermes is a mediator, a listener, an eavesdropper, a go-between.
In modern days a MERCURY ruled person,and we all are, is a compulsive twitterer or FB junkie whose I-phone never comes off their head
Mercury in the TAROT is the # 1 symbol, THE MAGICIAN
MERCURY /Hermes is also the TRICKSTER
famous as COYOTE in Native American legends
when your mind plays tricks on you…quess who is to blame?
HERMES is a hermaphrodite, His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE in one
We see the hermaphrodite image on our homes a lot these days. Kurt Hummel from GLEE-
so can’t make up your mind between Frank, Harry or Justin? or which job to take? or which school to go to or which….or that old friend/ lover enem, frenemy just re-entered your life again, what to do about that? or what to do…
Venus in Leo sure heats things up! Record heat waves, The Goddess is loud, proud, SEXY, in the spotlight, flashing red puple and Gold, taking center stage.
R U getting enough DRAMA these days?
Excellent time for passionate love affairs!
Fires are sparking everywhere!
Leo is the HEART, Venus in Leo is the Heart Flame! Wearing your heart on your sleeve.
Leo is Royalty, the King, the Sun, Gold, the Source, the Will, Center stage
Venus in Leo is the Queen, the Feminine Source, Golden Haired Goddess, Marilyn Monroe
It’s super dramatic, did they wait till the last minute to sign some sort of treaty re the DEBT?
It’s Mr. Obama’s 50th Birthday Aug 4, so Happy Birthday Mr. President
The President is going through what every 50 year old goes through. It’s called your Chiron Return.
Chiron whose symbol resembles a key, is an outer space object with a 50 year elliptical orbit. Discovered Nov. 1 1977 Chiron was, in Greek Mythology a Centaur, half immortal, rejected by his parents who became a great healer. Long story short, he asked to give up his immortality to quell the pain, he is immortalized as a Constellation in the skies. His discovery brings to our present day consciousness the unconscious psychological symbol of being human, of being archetypal vulnerable and therefor inherently, humanly wounded.
So where that little key is in your birth chart shows where you are the most vulnerable, wounded but also where the greatest healing lies, for as each individual heals themselves and the greatest strength lies in being able to open the wounds, show the soft underbelly, own it, take responsibility for it, cherish it, thank it, understand it, bless it, that we may become wounded healers for others.
And as Kurt Vonnegut would say, and so it goes.
So I send HAPPY BIRTHDAY greetings to President Obama. Lord knows we can all see the vulnerability, the wounds, he is feeling right now trying to fix a wounded U.S.A. It’s a mighty big job.
So lets take a look at Mr. Obama’s birth chart as he turns 50.
President Obama's birth chart and transits
Were you born in 1961?
then U 2 will have a Chiron return this year as well.
Mr. Obama’s 50th shows Chiron directly on his natal Chiron at 5 degrees of Pisces in his first house of Self. Who he is. What he identifies as.
Mr. Obama has Chiron opposite Pluto in Virgo in the 7th house of others in his Birth chart, indicating that he is a wounded healer with Big Soul, Big Power,[ Pluto} a rebirth, around health, work, service to others. Very intelligent, that’s pluto in Virgo, a perfectionist, a very hard worker, someone who always gets te job done. The Chiron return amps up his innate wounding which he felt as a child. Pisces is the most spiritual and sensitive of all the signs, with no boundaries, feeling one with everyone.
I do believe and I tell all my clients that I totally know inherently that we chose our parents, our place and time of birth before we come into this life the characteristics, which allows us the perfect opportunities for our souls to grow,learn and hopefully to complete our journeys of why we came into this life time again, this time around.
Mr. Obama came into this life already spiritual already a wounded healer with a lot of power directed out to the world at large. A Pisces Chiron is compassionate, all-inclusive, can be a martyr.Being of mixed racial background is a perfect symbol for him.
Mr. Obama’s North Node or highest spiritual goal is at 27 degrees 18 minutes of Leo in his 7th house, the house of marriage or all others, his interface with the world, and conjunct to Pluto. North Node conjunct Pluto is considered to be very powerful, very purposeful. Becoming President with a capital P. is his fulfilling his highest destiny.
27 degrees of Leo is conjunct to a very famous Fixed Star REGULUS, the heart of the Lion. This famous star is connected to the ArchAngel Raphael the healer of the heart. His South Node representing the Past, is at 27 degrees of Aquarius in his first house.
Neptune the planet of dreamers. chameleons, actors, addictions, illusions, delusions, Hollywood, OIL. HAs been passing over Mr. Obama’s South Node and will do so again soon. He may seem tobe shifting his position, or being too idealistic.
Venus is now in Leo and Venus will make a Superior Conjunction to the Sun on Aug 16th at 23 degrees of Leo.
Every year the Sun is at the 23 degree on this date and co-incidentally it is the Anniversary dates of two very important festivals, gatherings, shifts in world consciousness.
Aug 15 017 1969 Woodstock
WOODSTOCK took place on Aug 15 16 and 15 in where else?
hundreds of thousands of young people arrived bare foot, long-haired, to tune in turn on drop out, create their own city, babies were born, musicians played as they never had before, Joni Mitchell summed it up in her famous song,
WE ARE STARDUST, WE ARE GOLDEN, AND WE’VE GOT TO GET OURSELVES BACK TO THE GARDEN
I just came across this TWEET synchronistically by Deepak Chopra like an hr ago! We are golden.
Also on Aug 16 and 17 1987 the HARMONIC CONVERGENCE
Jose Arguelles, who recently passed on, one of the co-founders of Earth day, declared these days a world-wide meditation and higher consciousness gathering and brought the Mayan calendar “end date” of Dec 21, 2012 into mass consciousness.
For these 2 days Light workers gathered at various high energy vortex power spots around the world, Mt. Shasta. Niagara Falls, Sedona Arizona etc.
I happened to be drawn to living in Sedona a year before there and arrived there at Spring Equinox in 1987 to find out unbeknownst to me consciously and after the fact that 10,000 people were scheduled to arrive on these dates in a town of 7,500 people. They did. I was there on Bell Rock and the Airport Vortex doing movement meditations. It was on National News.
My point is folks, that Venus the Goddess of women, beauty, love, harmony, balance the Arts is going to Kanoodle with the Sun on this very same date bringing the point that as in the Harry Potter Deathly Hallow’s part 1 – the Golden snitch says “I OPEN AT THE CLOSE.” cryptic words those.
So we are back to where we began this little story, Venus, the Sun , Leo, The President, Golden Girls- Marilyn Monroe, Happy 50th, anniversaries.
The Ancients called the convergence of Venus with the Sun “CAZIMI” meaning under the Sun’s beams, burnt out, disappeared, and evil.
As a symbol of what these dates have symbolized to the collective consciousness and to have this important rendezvous now means:
Now we don’t live in fear, but in insight from our hearts, the place that LEO rules. So throw open the gates of your heart,
Love loud and proud, not vaingloriously but un- egotistically. Venus disappearing, being swallowed up by the Sun,
means she is entering a Golden Palace, a Heaven world, and we as the microcosmic mirror of the Marcocosm. “AS ABOVE< SO BELOW>”
as She is dying to Herself to rise like the Phoenix from the ashes of her own immolation,
out of compete unselfish Love for the Sun, the Source of all Light and Life, to have her ego/self extinguished.
Venus will then no longer be visible as the morning star [ DAWN STAR} where she has risen so beautifully at night in the East,
she will go to the Underworld, the night Sea journey, to the dark side of the SUN, to be reborn many months from now.
And we must go with Her whether consciously or Unconsciously.
The Lust and speculation over Gold as security in a changing worldscape is a projection of our need for what Gold holds and trasmits, what it symbolizes. the Light of the Sun, our very Selves, our Golden Self, our Spirits, our Souls,. shining Lights, Stars.
.The symbol # 17 in the Tarot, The Star symbol of Aquarius and you remember that song, from another famous ‘60’s musical icon don’t you?
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Aquarius.
We are Stardust, We are Golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the Garden. Thank You Joni Mitchell for so eloquently tuning into the cosmic vibe of Eternity.
Back to Obama
And as for Mr. Obama the Venus Sun conjunction occurs in his 7th house, on his Uranus, planet of REVOLUTION in-between that planet and LILLITH, at 20 degrees of Leo very near to his Descendant.
LILLITH the archetypal first woman proceeding EVE. Didya read that story in the Bible? Not just a women’s songfest. LILLITH was the first woman, She was the original “I am woman hear me roar. ” She refused to allow Adam to dominate her sexually, like an animal. Pointing out rightly so, that G*d had created Her and Him EQUAL, of the earth, so what the heck was he thinking?
He wasn’t obviously, he was Unconscious. So Lillith took off and flew the coop and she left Eden. Yep that’s right, she flew right outa there and went to reside by the Red Sea. Ok. Long story short. She refuses to compromise in any way and is demonized by the Patriarchs who were trying to re-write HIStory from He point of view, when everyone knows deep down in their cellular memories that it was and is and always shall be SHEstory.
That is a Matriarchal comprehension of the Universe, self-evident, common sensicle. So Adam is in the Garden and asks God to make him a mate. So G* d creates Eve to be the perfect Lord it over the women prototype and women are blamed, defamed, and eternally damned in this historical rewrite.
So what does that mean? Well I believe the Women will revolt and take back their power!!!!!!!!!!!! I am woman hear me roar!!! Venus in Leo, conjunct the Sun. Which is ungoldenly the Ego, vanity, greed, fear and in the Light, and spiritually the divine essence, the spirit itself, rising again as Divine Love.
So guys ya better start workin on getting nice to your own inner female side, yah you. You got one too. Everyone does. Ya’all never be alone ya know.
and I stumbled upon through sheer Grace /Synchronicity through a woman named Jennifer Hough, who I recenly met at the Grail Lady Faire at the Grail Springs Spa in Bancroft Ontario. http://www.grailsprings.com/
Tara Greene presenter at Grail Lady Faire 2011
she just had this on her FB page. It is a poem by David Whyte, the Washington based bard who began his writing lessons with It doesn’t interest me… which inspired my former teacher Oriah Mountain Dreamer to write a poem which was originally a newsletter which eventually became The Invitation,
EVERYTHING IS WAITING FOR YOU
(After Derek Mahon)
Your great mistake is to act the drama
as if you were alone. As if life
were a progressive and cunning crime
with no witness to the tiny hidden
transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny
the intimacy of your surroundings. Surely,
even you, at times, have felt the grand array;
the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding
out your solo voice. You must note
the way the soap dish enables you,
or the window latch grants you freedom.
Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.
The stairs are your mentor of things
to come, the doors have always been there
to frighten you and invite you,
and the tiny speaker in the phone
is your dream-ladder to divinity.
Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into
the conversation. The kettle is singing
even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots
have left their arrogant aloofness and
seen the good in you at last. All the birds
and creatures of the world are unutterably
themselves. Everything is waiting for you.
~ David Whyte ~
