All about me, Mercury in Leo

July 27-August 11 Mercury in LEO, roar with pride. The communicator, Trickster, merchant and dualistic psychopomp, guide of souls who can traverse the worlds, God of messages, thinking and consciousness itself is in ROARING, King or Queen, absolute ruler, fiery, all about me dramatic sign of LEO.

Leo is a FIXED FIRE sign, the sign of KINGS and QUEENS and our minds are the rulers now, Regal, on our thrones, which can be too vain, too egotistic, too overbearing at worst. Gotta watch that ego.

Mercury in LEO is fun, from the heart, solar powered, Big Party time, confident, self-expressive, all heart, very passionate, fun loving and charismatic.

Mercury in LEO July 27- August 11 is the sign of a child-like mind. This is pure creativity at its best. Do tap into the creativity wave of being naive and innocent. Do you have Mercury in Leo? Most people who are Sun Sign Leos also have Mercury in Leo as it is never very far from the Sun. Astrology is based on astronomy you know.

Venus in Virgo, strong Warrioress

Venus enters VIRGO July 21-August 16 a very quick sprint in the earthy, workaholic, perfectionist, service oriented sign where we love to get our work, diet, our health, our budgets, and all of our shit together.

Venus was known as the Goddess of LOVE and WAR in antiquity. The Sign Virgo was originally associated, now archaically as VIRAGO a WOMAN of “masculine ” strength, whole Goddess/woman, a Warrioress. Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin Harvest Goddess, is a very ancient Constellation. Their Mode and Element is Mutable earth, they are in their bodies most definitely and they are adaptable.

“A virago is a woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities. The word comes from the Latin word virāgō meaning vigorous’ from vir meaning “man” or “man-like” to which the suffix -āgō is added, a suffix that creates a new noun of the third declension with feminine grammatical gender.” -Wikipedia

 “A woman, however, if exceptional enough could earn the title virago. In doing so, she surpassed the expectations for what was believed possible for her gender and embodied masculine-like aggression[4] and/or excellence. Virago, then, was a title of respect and admiration. In Christianity, a nun or holy woman who had become equal in divinity to male monks through practiced celibacy, exemplary religious practice and devotion, and intact virginity, was considered to have surpassed the limitations of her femaleness and was called virago.”

The word virago has almost always had an association with cultural gender transgression. There are recorded instances of viragos (such as Joan of Arc) fighting battles, wearing men’s clothing, or receiving the tonsure.[3]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virago

Virgo Constellation Astrology

Sidney Hall Richard Rouse Bloxam (designer) Restoration by Adam Cuerden, Sidney Hall – Urania’s Mirror – Virgo, marked as public domain, more details on Wikimedia Commons

VIRGO is the largest Constellation. What we know as The Virgin Goddess as Demeter to the Greeks, was originally known as VIRAGO. A woman of “masculine” strength or spirit; a female warrior. We all know that VENUS was known both as the Goddess of LOVE AND WAR, so before the patriarchy really imbalanced her obvious physical strength, Virgo meant VIRAGO. The latter Virgin Goddess originally meant she was a parthenogensis Goddess too capable of self-fertility. She is not a-sexual. These women were sacred sexual Priestesses.

Whole and complete unto herself, needing no man at all. Virgo is the Great Mother, the Goddess of the earth and the Harvest shown holding an ear of corn, relating to mysteries of life death and transformation, part of the Eleusinian mysteries of rebirth. 

You just need to be very pure and hygienic, dedicated and focussed if you are going to be able to give birth parthenogenically or to be with a Virgo of either sex.

Virgo is apparently the most populated Astrology sign according to statistics.

Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and the passion, the power-mongering, Royalty treatments. Even though Sun enters LEO July 22, 2021 and It’s all about ME attitude. We need a break from all that Venus and MARS in LEO drama.

Venus in Virgo, in the 6th house naturally, is in it’s “FALL” because VENUS is considered to be exalted in PISCES so sheis considered weak in the 6th sign. 

Venus in Virgo’s is service-oriented “How can I help you” peeps.” For a Virgo work is their religion.

Virgo’s are not generally very emotional or passionate they have practical emotional control. This placement is very modest, earthy, the servants traditionally. The waiters and waitresses of the Zodiac. They are workaholics, perfectionists, intelligent, organized, budget-conscious, worriers. Totally opposite to LEO.

VENUS in Virgo

imparts VENUSian values- feminine, creative, relationships, values, to all things VIRGO.

Venus in Virgo peeps are the workaholics and perfectionists of the ZODIAC. Occasionally they appear messy but they’ve got it all organized in their heads. My Dad was a totally messy Virgo. They are sensitive and easily hurt.

It’s Marie Kondo declutter as a spiritual act time for sure.

HEALTH

Health is a huge issue for Virgo/Venus in Virgo as they do worry a lot and that affects their health. They often have underlying health issues. Their weakest body part is the Upper intestines and they should avoid drinking alcohol, greasy, heavy and spicy foods. They are very disciplined and health conscious so they are often working out, doing yoga, on special food diets.  They often work in the health care system and can be doctor’s, dentists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, natural health practitioners, administrators or salespeople with the health care system.

Naturally accountants or anyone who pays attention to details, statistics and the like. They are usually excellent money managers, and very tight with money, they  love budgets. They love “freebies”

With Venus in Virgo, you gotta love your work. If not find the work that you do love. 

DATING DURING VENUS IN VIRGO SEASON

women, love, values turn to earthy practical shoes and budget shopping, wearing brown or harvest ochres or golden shades. Women dress more conservatively business-like, more modest, sensible pumps, blue jeans, simple and clean styling.

Virgo’s are very focussed, detail-oriented, nitpicky, perfectionist, never satisfied, workaholics -you will have to pry them away from their desks, as they are married to their job’s and they may avoid intimacy because they love information, social media, especially hands-on books, etc.

Mercury rules VIRGO’s we must always remember that. They are intellectual, info gatherers, and they will analyze your potential first.

VIRGO is the sign that is associated with THE HERMIT in the TAROT

They don’t have to be all alone but they are private, humble, service-oriented people.

You don’t have to splurge on an expensive date to impress a Virgo. Take them to a health-conscious, organic nouvelle cuisine simplistic resto.  They love places that seem to offer good value, as they do not have expensive tastes necessarily. They like tasteful things and they love bargains. They like spas.

Virgo’s love to read and talk, they like Hi-brow culture, a good play, see lectures, or matinee movies.

Remember they are down to earth, nothing too fussy types. They love to and need to be in nature. Camping, hiking, bicycling, walk in the countryside.

VENUS opposes JUPITER July 22

a very Beneficial aspect for practical dreaming.

MARS follows VENUS into Virgo JULY 29.

VENUS INCONJUNCTS SATURN on July 30

An awkard day of disconnecting from feelings too much.

During this time your upper digestion will likely be more sensitive. Especially when Mars also enters Virgo and agitates Virgo’s already sensitive digestive tract. Do watch your diet very carefully, eating well and being meticulous about what you eat.  Good time to initiate a new cleaner, more plant-based diet too. The body works best with natural medicines.

August 1 VENUS inconjuncts CHIRON IN ARIES

These 150 degree aspects are when the planets and elements don’t understand or see each other. You may feel wounded and vulnerable. Self care is very important.

Lilith in Gemini Part 2

Lilith, one of my fave Astrology and Archetypal queens moves into GEMINI July 18 until April 14, 2-2022. GEMINI is the sign of duality, choices, thinking, communications, marketing, analysis, childlike, social butterfly, non-committtal, merchandising, and tricksters.

I see Lilith as ruling SCORPIO totally. She is tied to sexuality, menstruation- retreating to the Red Sea is an obvious metaphor, taboo things, death, transformation, abortions,  all the feminine mysterious, power control secrets, which are projected onto Her.

Note the significance that the death bringing feminine aspect of Nature came before the life bringing Shekinah aspect of God who appeared after the 2nd woman Eve was created and she and Adam were “expelled from paradise in shame.”

Lilith, the most demonized figure in the Bible, is the very first woman created equal to Adam from the red earth it says in the original Mystic Secret Initiated version of the Bible, she is as a positive death bringing aspect, like Kali and 1/4 of God or All that Is which is beyond what we can fathom. She was so powerful that spells, incantations and amulets were regularly worn by pregnant women and one who had just given birth, This is an ancient Babylonnian incantation bowl against Lilith the Hag and Child stealer.

LILITH INCANTATION BOWL
Metropolitan Museum of Art, CC BY 2.5 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5, via Wikimedia Commons

“Thou Lilith. . .Hag and Snatcher, I adjure you by the Strong One of Abraham, by the Rock of Isaac, by the Shaddai of Jacob. . .to turn away from this Rashnoi. . .and from Geyonai her husband. . .Your divorce and writ and letter of separation. . .sent through holy angels. . .Amen, Amen, Selah, Halleluyah! ~ Babylonian bowl inscription (600 C.E.)”

LILITH , Black Moon Lilith, was the original WOMAN before Eve. Do rituals to her on all NEW/DARK MOONS

The Goddess was worshipped everywhere on the earth up until 5 thousand+ years ago. She was the Great Mother of All. Everyone had common sense, and everyone was born of woman, so it was obvious who the Creatress was. Lilith is a very powerful archetype.

LILITH is the Original Goddess/Woman one half of Go*d’s feminine side. She is a Dark Angel. She refuses to compromise and be less than Adam who tried to dominate her sexually- a very modern story. She demands equal rights in partnerships. She refused to submit sexually to Adam and chose to leave Paradise and live by the Red Sea leaving Adam alone. The back story is really about men feeling innately powerless against the Goddess. The Bible is a manmade creation to manipulate women to control their sexuality and power.  In Christianity Mother Mary is the life-giving aspect. Lilith is like the opposite dark death bringing aspect like Nature.

LILITH is shown Lilith was demonized as a vampire, harpy, and child killer by the Patriarchy to scare women and men from consorting with Lilith’s power, seductive uncontrollable independent sexual energy.  She is really a symbol of Menstruation and the Jewish fear of menstrual blood and its life-giving powers for self-conception.

Black Moon Lilith is not a physical object but the geometric point in the sky that marks the furthest point of the moon’s orbit around the earth. (Because the moon’s orbit is elliptical, it has two center points; one is the earth, and the other is Black Moon Lilith. There is another Asteroid Lilith and Mean LILITH too, it can be confusing. I choose to use this one.

Lilith symbolizes an aspect of the dark void. She spends approximately nine months in each sign, aligning to the period of pregnancy. Black Moon Lilith represents many things, psychologically your unconscious primitive impulses and behavior in the rawest form. She is related to dreams, and sexuality expressed repressed. Lilith symbolizes our need to be alone and our fear of it. Lilith is also our fear of being vulnerable and intimate. She is your Sex Goddess.

QUESTIONS ABOUT LILITH

Do I feel rejected for simply being a woman? Why do I give in and compromise? How does Lilith operate unconsciously in me? How have I swallowed the Patriarchal lies about women and my sexuality? How can I honor Lilith’s independence, refusal to compromise and sexual energy in me?

REMEDY: Invite Lilith to empower you. Refuse to compromise to please others. Invite her to speak to you in dreams. Honor your right to be alone.  Lilith wants equality not power over. The #MeToo movement is Lilith’s energy embodied. She is especially a Dark New Moon Goddess.

As Lilith travels through GEMINI for the next 9 months we can expect lots of forked tongues, two-faced relationships, immaturity, double-speak, waffling, and projections onto any female, or feminine aspects, or anyone who is seen as a threat, troublemaker or doesn’t talk the proscribed talk. You get where this is going right?

NOTE WHERE GEMINI is in your astrology chart to track which part of your chart LILITH will be igniting your passion and desire to be treated as an equal or be willing to be alone, Lilith will be lighting up your sexual energy opening it to many new experiences. Expect to experiment with open relationships with having two partners at once. Many bi-sexual relationships will start and flower over this next 9 months.

Lilith has been attributed to rule Gemini? I saw that somewhere, which I could possible see an aspect of. I’m not sure who came up with that attribution except that She is one half of the entire Feminine aspect of All That Is, that’s all.

Fairies, Midsummer Night dreams 2021

Midsummer Night Fairy Magick Sun Celebration

June 20 is the Peak of the SUN’s LIGHT, the MASCULINE FIRE in the Northern Hemisphere. The longest night of the year in the North, its a time of celebration. As the sun peaks everything shifts gradually into the DARK FEMININE ENERGY begins to grow stronger until December 21st when it peaks then the powers are switched again. This is the balance of everything that exists in the Universe. We need these complimentary opposites.

The SUN is sitting on the TROPIC OF CANCER and in Tropical astrology we say the Sun has entered the sign of Cancer.

This is the PAGAN Cardinal Cross Quarter day of LITHA. 

As Summer begins in the North here in 2021 we are not quite getting out of months of lockdown due to Covid-19. Time to celebrate, Life is green, the living colours of flowers are everywhere and abundant. The air smells sweet, bees are buzzing. We are growing our own food in our gardens or containers. We are soaking up the rays.  The Goddess is symbolically Pregnant with the child she conceived at Spring equinox.

The Summer Solstice or LITHA begins 8:32 pm PDT/11:32 pm EDT/ JUNE 21 At 3:32 am GMT  as the SUN enters CANCER the 0-degree “world point.” It is the beginning of Winter Down Under.

Shakespeare Immortalized Midsummer in his play A Midsummer Night’s Dream Sir_Joseph_Noel_Paton_-_The_Quarrel_of_Oberon_and_Titania_

Sir Joseph Noel Paton- The Quarrel of Oberon and Titania_

Traditional symbols for Midsummer

Weave flower wreaths to wear on the summer solstice,

Speaking of Midsummer nights dreams

JUPITER the planet of expansion is in its home rulership in PISCES the Sign of dreams, visions, the last sign, the house of magic and imagination as Jupiter turns RETROGRADE at 8:06 am PDT/ 11:06 am EDT/3:06 pm GMT.

We have been floating in a DREAMLAND of Pisces fairyland waters since May 13/14. This is very significant for this SOLSTICE season.

Jupiter turns Retrograde June 20 on Solstice at 2 Pisces and turns direct October 17/18 at 22 Aquarius. Jupiter was there before March 26/27. We will have to resift through all the new Aquarian ideas until then and relaunch when Jupiter hits 2 Pisces on January 8, 2022

The Bonfire

Bonfires are lit on hilltops, by holy wells, and at a sacred place, to honour the fullness of the Sun. People danced around and leap through the flames. Traditionally people stayed up all night on Midsummer’s Eve to welcome the sunrise. Coals from the Midsummer fire were scattered on fields to ensure a good harvest, you can scatter them in your garden

Midsummer is one of the most powerful nights for MAGICK,

Especially healing prayers, love magick, energy, protection and purification. It’s a time of gratitude for family and friends. Reflect on the progress of the seeds that you planted in the earth. A great time to get rid of patterns and objects that no longer serve your Higher Self. 

The Fairy Queen and the fairies are said to be out riding on MidSummer Night 

This is the time to strengthen your connection with the Fae or Fairie and otherworldly beings,

Honour the Fairies 

Create a fairie house in your yard or even in your window. Remember that fairies are very mischievous so be careful. Place spirit boundaries around your house, and protect yourself from their pranks while outside. Wear garlands of marigolds, ivy and or St. John’s Wort. White lily petals, rue and oatmeal in your pockets or in baskets help in protection. Bury a Witch Bottle, a glass container filled with sharp objects such as pins, nails and needles, ashes and salt before entrances to your home for protection.

Mead is considered to be a magical life-enhancing drink, You can make an altar to honour the Oak tree, with their leaves. Sunflowers are also a great example.  Magical baking and charms are created on this special day. Traditionally this festival spans three days. This year it is June 20-23rd.

Buttermilk Bread 

To bring abundance to your kitchen. Sunflower seeds represent the light half of the year and the poppy seeds represent the dark half of the year.

You will need:

3 cups of white flour, preferably bread flout type.

500 ml of Buttermilk 

I tsp.of bicarbonate of soda

Sunflower and poppy seeds for sprinking

Red ribbon and a sprig of rosemary

Place the flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Sieve in the blended salt and soda and pour in the buttermilk. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the dough feels springy. If it feels too sloppy just add a little more flour. Turn it onto a board and cover with a fine dusting of flour. Pat it with your hands until you have a round shape. Take a sharp knife and score lightly into eight sections, one for each festival. Sprinkle half of the loaf with poppy seeds and the other half with sunflower seeds.

Place onto a greased baking tray and pop your buttermilk bread into a moderate oven for about 20-25 minutes. Keep and eye on it. When the bread is ready it will change colour and it will sound hollow when you tap the bottom. Cool completely on a wire rack. When it is cool, place your sprig of rosemary on top and tie the red ribbon across the middle.

Consecrate the bread by turning the loaf three times saying “From the fields and through the stones, into fire, Midsummer Bread, as the Wheel turns may all be fed. Goddess Bless.”

Take your bread and share it with your family, friends or whoever you would like to bless. Eat it fresh, as soon as it is made if you can. 

Elderflower Champagne

Elderflowers peak at Midsummer. Pick them in the fullness of a sunny day, ideally on Midsummer’s Day. The Elder is sacred to the Mother Goddess and is often called the Witch’s Tree, the Elder Mother, or Queen of the Trees. It is protective, with wonderful healing properties. It aids transformation, change and renewal, this drink will aid in transforming your life. Or drink Elderberry Liqueur.

In Canada, Strongbow makes an elderflower cider. 

Ingredients:

8 litres water

1.25 kg sugar

8 large elderflower heads

4 lemons

4 tablespoons mild white wine vinegar

Do use screw-top bottles. Large plastic bottles are good. This is a fizzy drink, if not bottled tightly it can explode! Keep it somewhere safe. Make sure the elderflowers are clean and pick them when the sun is strongest. 

Boil the water and dissolve the sugar into it, organic sugar is best.

When the water cools, add the elderflowers, the juice of two of the lemons and slices of the other two, plus the vinegar.

Cover with a clean cloth and leave for a day.

Strain through a fine sieve or piece of muslin, carefully squeezing the flowers to extract as much flavour as possible.

Store in clean screw-top bottles.

Leave alone for 10 days or so. Drink within a month. Enjoy and give thanks to the Spirit of the Elder.

Honey Cake

A celebration of a sweet life. 

If you can source locally produced honey its the best. Wherever it comes from always thank the precious Bees. 

Ingredients:

225 gram Butter 1 cup
250 gms Honey or 1 cup 
100 gms Dark Muscovado Sugar, 3.5 ounces by weight 
3 Eggs, beaten
300 gms Self-Raising Flour, 1 1/2 cups 

Cut the butter into pieces and heat slowly, adding the honey and the sugar. When fully melted, turn up the heat and boil the mixture for one minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the beaten eggs to the cooled honey mixture. Sift the flour into a large bowl and beat the liquid honey mixture into it until you have a smooth batter. Pour the mixture into a round lined sponge tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for about 50 mins – or until the cake is well-risen and springs back to the touch. Cool on a rack and glaze with a few tablespoons of warm honey. A nice sweet treat.

Healing for the children’s souls

VENUS IS IN CANCER TRINE JUPITER IN PISCES AT 1+ DEGREE

The aspect is exact at 4:33 pm PDT 7:33 pm EDT /June 4 at 12:33 am GMT

A very beautiful auspicious, emotional, sentimental energy supported by exalted spiritual compassion and highly tuned psychic dreaming in HD energies. This is a very uplifting optimistic energy. Use it to give love to family, children, mothers especially, to love your ancestors, home, roots, foundations, honor your tummy with comfort foods and to tune into the vibration of unconditional love, creativity, dreams, lucid dreams, international affairs, forgiveness, compassion, charity and ONENESS.

I am also reeling from the news of the 215 Indigenous children’s remains found in a Residential school in the small town of Kelowna, British Columbia recently. The shocking news adds even greater karmic responsibility on the Canadian Government and the henious Catholic Church for kidnapping Indigenous children from the early 20th Century up until the 1970s, tearing them away from family and culture to re-educate and “civilize them” in English speaking, Western culture and Catholic doctrines. This is tantamount to Hitler sending Jews, gypsies homosexuals and nay “undesirabes” to concentration work camps. These children could have died by torture, being whipped, disease, starvation or grief, fear and loneliness alone.

So I am using this planetary energy to sending peace and love and grace to these and all indigenous children killed so tragically. Knowing that the karma of their innocent blood is on the Catholic Church hands and the Canadian Government politicians and for the next 7 generations to pay their karmic debts for.

Please send prayers at that time for their innocent souls to find peace and may the mothers, fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers and all the nations find some peace in their fathomless grief and may restitution be mad although their lives can not be brought back. But NEVER AGAIN.

come to my JUNE 9 SOLAR ECLIPSE IN GEMINI ASTROLOGY MAGIC WORKSHOP

7:30 pm EDT LIVE ON ZOOM https://lu.ma/czu1igt5

Weekly astrology May 31- June 6 is spiritual and emotional, But…

Food family home and nurture all come to the forefront as Venus enters Cancer on June 2 until June 26. Early in the week Most planetary aspects are beneficial and light with a loved up Venus Jupiter trine on 3/4. BUT one of the hardest ass aspects happens June 5 as Mars opposes Pluto in Capricorn. A preview of the 1st Pluto return in the USA in 2022.

Dream big May 31 as Mars trines Neptune in Pisces.

Venus in Cancer ♋️

Note Venus in Cancer is moving Out Of Bounds OOB until June 19

Venus is Cancer is the goddess emerging from the ocean in Cancer where she is most maternal, very tender hearted and very emotional. It’s all about love of home, food, family, sentimental, mom and apple pie, and giving love and food to mothers, children, the homeless and everyone. A good time to get pregnant. Buy a home or redecorate your crib.

Do Tend to the inner child. Love your tummy as it will rule you during this time. Tummies will be easily upset too. Let yourself eat what nurtures you. It bodes well for being near water. Swim as much as you can or be on a beach. Take long soothing rebirthing baths.

We will be feeling very sentimental, tears come easily. Taking care of the home, donating to food banks and cook comfort food and tell your mom or whoever nurtured you how much you love them.

Children born during this time are mommy’s kids and will love to eat and be traditional feminine and motherly. Note Prince Harry and Meghan’s daughter could be born with this aspect. Mommy‘a girl. This is true for all Venus in Cancer people.

June 5 Mercury Retrograde square Neptune in Pisces ♓️ at 23 degrees.

For sure you will hear from a last lover, the one who got away, the one who deceived you. Revelations of hidden things may shock you. Waking you up from your projections. This may hurt a lot but is also healing you from denial, addictions and delusions. A positive time to review your goals and dreams. It’s Good for creativity, meditation visualization and charity work. Donate what you don’t need. Write our your spiritual manifesto. Pay attention to your dreams these days because of Jupiter in Pisces ♓️ too.

June 5 Red Letter very hard ass aspect as Mars in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn.

This is A war signature, watch out for domestic and government battles. There will be Fury over indigenous and all children disappearing and sex slavery undercover knowledge may come out . Be careful of accidents in your home and around water. Especially swimming and boating, there may be naval accidents or bombings and incidents. Domestic terrorists or big family battles are to be expected. Street fighting, evictions, abuse of mothers and children. If you are in danger from an abusive family member seek help.

Anger from childhood sexual and or emotional abuses by mothers and patriarchs too will well up like a tsunami. Bitter tears may be shed profusely over past indignities.

Anger and emotions will be high. Mothers against fathers, the people versus corporations and plutocrats.

Mars in Cancer is women warriors and men who worship and defend mothers. Mars opposite Pluto empowers mothers, women and children to fight patriarchal overlords and take back their power. Hindu goddess Mother Durga is a fierce warrior and protectress. Hey Matta Durga is her mantra.

Countries with planets at 24-28 Cancer Capricorn will be strongly affected.

The US has its natal Mercury retrograde Vertex and Part of Fortune in late Cancer and of course it’s natal Pluto at 27 Capricorn. Israel’s MC is on this degree.

Sagittarius Total Lunar Eclipse symbol wisdom

Symbols for the SAGITTARIUS LUNAR ECLIPSES from John Sandbach for 6 degrees SAGUTTARIUS one always counts one degree up unless planets are Retrograde Phase 50. Enough is Never Enough (Daled Nun Yud) Angel: Daniel (DA-nee-EL) Eloquence Sagittarius 6. In a red desert, a lush, green plantation produced by irrigation. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Experimental (Degree Angel: Omael (O-ma-EL) Building Bridges, Fertility, Multiplicity Defeats frustration, despair and depression) This degree makes the best of what it finds at hand, and can create its own rich and productive environment even in the midst of a harsh or unsupportive outer landscape. When there are forces against which to contend, this degree can be supremely resourceful and find a way to thrive against all odds. Inherent in its energy is a strong denial of poverty consciousness. The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A pair of shoes with live wings on each.”  A very Mercurial. Mutable type of image. When feet can fly then one is not limited to earthly paths but can follow the paths of the air which are ever-changing and free. This limitless and unbounded approach to life is like the lush green plantation of the Omega Symbol, which may be anywhere because it brings its own water to itself rather than having to depend on environment and climate. This degree is light, airy and luxurious. Just as the water of the Omega symbol is made to connect with the plantation, the wings on the shoes of the Chandra Symbol allow one to connect with anything needed or desired that will cause one, like the plantation, to thrive. This degree is determined to create an oasis, a haven, maybe a little Eden, and to blithely soar above problems and limitations in the process of doing so. This may be, in its lower stages of development, unrealistic, but in higher stages it taps in to the magic of abundance. Which makes sense because, Kabbalistically, its a degree sub-ruled by Taurus. Pleiadian Symbol: On a ball court children chasing a large soap bubble. Azoth Symbol: Dance music heard from afar invites people to festivities. Seed degree: Gemini 9. A ruby growing in a laboratory. (Omega Symbol). Bringing a sense of meaning and purpose to our creativity helps us to find new ways of nurturing others and supporting life. Wild flowers growing around the ruins of a temple. (Chandra Symbol). Coming back into a state of humbleness and simplicity after the subsiding of grandiose or complex schemes frees us to communicate lightly and swiftly within an expanded reality. Fulfillment degree: Virgo 21. A geologist studying bands of rock in a cliff. (Omega symbol). Our striving to bring into our life those changes which will fulfill us leads us eventually into a more expanded exploration of how the processes of change work in general. Dark river and distant bell. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to explore beyond the boundaries of the known we enter into obscure spaces, but can be guided through them by attentiveness to our inner guiding light.”
