This month (June 6) we celebrate the conjunction of Venus and the Sun. This conjunction is the major component in the Mayan prophesies of the End of Time on 21 December. In the context of our transformational times, the end of time translates as a shift in consciousness. Venus, which is a symbol for the soul, stands as a lens in front of our radiance God.
Venus is the planet for the romantic. Her very name conjures up images of mystery and sensuality; she was a seductive symbol long before the roman coined her name. The Babylonians called her Ishtar, Goddess of Fertility. The Sumerians knew her as Inanna, Queen of Thunder. The Egyptians knew her as Isis the Enchantress and to the Greeks she was Aphrodite (my favorite) ultimate icon of feminine mystery charm and seduction and mother to cupid.
Aphrodite was the ultimate sensual woman, beautiful, strong thoughtful and unpredictable. Forthose only prepared to see Venus as some distant ball of gas and rock, won’t recognize her power to influence you and events on earth. There is no satisfactory scientific explanation why Venus or any other planet should affect us emotionally, but then love its self is not scientifically proven. To experience it you just have to stop asking and give yourself over to something you feel is true. To dismiss Venus is to dismiss love and romance, this defies logic and then so does Astrology.
For now we need to look at the sign of Venus and to remember that every woman has the spirit of Aphrodite some where with in her and that her spirit is forever free. The Venus sign reveals a lot about your attitude to love and about the way you resonate to mother earth and nature. June is about inner power and love, to discoverwhat kind of lover you are, what kind of lover you want. June is also a time to reevaluate your inner power and self worth and align them to together with passion and intention.
Venus is an Earth or Earthy planet. This needs to be understood, so what she delivers (or takes away) is manifestly and concretely felt. You can hold it, celebrate it and use it. Venus seeks gratification, pleasure and fulfillment. She will give affirmation and success in war or love because her aim is to manifest it, to make it happen - whatever that is. Venus understands the beauty of form, possession, manifestation and magic. You are the one who needs to be clear as your inner belief will manifest into reality.
She is useful in practical and everyday living for protection, power and support. She supports aspiration, success and achievement in LIFE and all that this means to you.
Use this time to manifest your success.
The Meaning of the Sun
This is the energy storehouse of our existence. The Sun's immense nuclear and spiritual power fuels our lives from within and without.. Many ancient and not-so-ancient cultures believed that the Sun was the source of all Spirit. It is the heart and ruler of our Solar System and it controls all life with the heat that warms and the energy (calories) that emanate from it both invisibly and visibly. So the Sun gives light and invisible power.
How do you feel? Do you love yourself and support yourself towards the future you desire. How do you empower yourself through thought and action, does your words inspire you or tear you down. Does your action support your success or stop it dead.
Give some thought over this time to how you treat those you love or how you can attract love. Use this time to embrace the fire within and acknowledge the beauty in and all around you.
