Venus On Libra 1: The Binds That Tie Degree

Venus is on the Super Galactic Center (we have had a bit of action around this part of the zodiac, but most particularly this recent new Moon was smack on it)… and we can see how we might be sabotaging ourselves, feeling stuck, feeling sore and bruised from feeling pinned down to situations, relationships, places where we live, etc…

ButterflyVenus is on Libra 1: A BUTTERFLY PRESERVED AND MADE PERFECT WITH A DART THROUGH IT

This Symbol implies something vital and beautiful being “Preserved” so that the passing of time doesn’t age, decay or destroy it. Beauty in shape or form has been frozen in one moment – denying the natural process of decay. An archetypal death is symbolized; a perfection through sacrifice. As inspiring as this process can be, this can bring difficulties in moving on or changing situations. People can feel stuck with this degree, like they have no choice, can’t move forward are trapped or are being used for something that they don’t agree with. However, this degree does bring some wonderful rewards with longevity and a sense of something eternally good attached to it.

Perfection and beauty made immortal. Moments frozen in time. External beauty that’s lacking animation. The “handiwork” of creation on display. Transfiguration. Poster art.

The Caution: People being stopped from growth and change. Not letting go. Surrender and immobilization. Pinned down and unable to move. Appearances being everything.

Mercury is on Scorpio 2: A BROKEN BOTTLE AND SPILLED PERFUME

This can be a difficult degree and it can bring upsets and disturbances… it can also bring about a healing as we let go of something that we’ve been hanging onto…Broken Bottle And Spilled Perfume

This Symbol implies something fragile and beautiful that may somehow be shattered or lost. It can also show the need to let things go and not hang onto them to the point of shattering and loss. There will be times of building up or concentrating your emotions until they are suddenly let out. There may be little that you can do about the initial outburst, but you need to be careful of what you say and do as you sort things out. Sometimes things need to be “Broken” so that their contents can be released and fully appreciated or revealed. The smell of “Perfume” can release memories of love, longing and desire, but also anger, hurt or jealousy.

Memories lingering on. Spilled emotions. Scents or aromas. Upsetting people. Shattered emotions. Chiropractors. Back surgeons. Genie let out of the bottle. Breaking glass.

The Caution: Things looking good, but contents disappointing. The desire for drama. Bad smells. Substance abuse. Emotional mess. Smelling salts. Passing out. Accidents.

Venus on Virgo 29: A Man Gaining Secret Knowledge

Venus is on Virgo 29: A MAN GAINING SECRET KNOWLEDGE FROM AN ANCIENT SCROLL HE IS READING

Man Gaining Secret Knowledge - Walter Russell‘A Man is Gaining Secret Knowledge From an Ancient Scroll He is Reading’. He Is learning insights and things that will most likely further him in life and his quest for knowledge. The ‘Ancient Scroll’ obviously contains some very important information. In order to really gain this ‘Secret Knowledge’, he needs to pay attention to every detail and not overlook anything. The clues he is gathering may help him lead a fuller, more spiritual life, or they may assist him in his hobby or profession.

This ‘Ancient Scroll’ that the ‘Man is Gaining Secret Knowledge’ from can literally refer to written material, but it can also mean unwritten things, the myths and stories that are the base elements of our humanity. It is, however, the ability to translate this ‘Knowledge’ into a practical set of lessons for our day-to-day life that assists our progress as we grow and mature. Stories from the past and from mythology are the verbalization of our inner archetypes. An Oracle is something that reveals ‘Secret knowledge’; or our own inner wisdom is revealed by the inspiration of an Oracle. The most seemingly insignificant information can often turn out to be valuable for the future understanding or our experiences. There may be the feeling of not knowing what to do, or of not knowing what is going on. To gain a sense of clarity, go back to the basic or essential truths of the matter. This may indeed be the inner wisdom of the ages. Modern solutions may not be of use at this time. Understanding will come through patient, steady work and illuminating inspiration.

Keywords: Learning from ancient mysteries. Looking for answers. Study and its rewards. Reading between the lines. Finding clues from the past and applying them to the present. Being privileged to look into something special. Alchemy. The Bible, the Torah and the Koran. Manuscripts. Scrolls. Ancient writings. Akashic records. Classified documents. Secret papers.

The Caution: Failing to acknowledge old wisdom. Losing one’s common sense. Losing touch with reality. Reading importance into things that are not real or useful. Conspiracy theories. Religious zealotry. Feeling gifted over the rest. Finding nothing interesting in the everyday, modern world.

Mercury’s On The Sight Seeing Bus Degree: Scorpio 1

Mercury is on Scorpio 1: A SIGHT-SEEING BUS FILLED WITH TOURISTS

Tourists Sight Seeing BusThis Symbol speaks of taking in the world through the senses; seeing, tasting, observing and getting in amongst what’s going on.

Pictures and souvenirs of your life (your journey) are likely to be collected. The trick with this degree is to throw your self into life, reach out for all sorts of adventures and, most of all, enjoy the journey!

The Sun On Libra 6: The Making One’s Dreams A Reality Degree

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Libra 6: A MAN WATCHES HIS IDEALS TAKING A CONCRETE FORM BEFORE HIS INNER VISION

A Man Watches His Ideals Taking ConcreteThis Symbol is one of the Sabian Symbols that speak directly of the idea of the ‘law of attraction’; as a person imagines, so does their outer reality take shape and bring to them what they were imagining. In your life you’ll find vivid examples of thoughts manifesting as things – other times they may happen without you really realizing it. Ideals are not only bought into the light of reality but they are put to the test. This shows the ability to be able to visualize your thoughts and feelings and it possible to project your creative ideas out into the real world. What you think will happen can happen.

Confrontations with objectives. Meditations and affirmations. The need to be careful of what’s wanted. Writing and being published. Designs and plans. The Secret. Builders.

The Caution: Being dissatisfied with what was thought to be the ideal. Not being careful what you ask for. Neurosis. Focusing on the negative thereby bringing the negative.

The Sun on Libra 5: Teaching The True Inner Knowledge

The Sun is on Libra 5: A MAN TEACHING THE TRUE INNER KNOWLEDGE OF THE NEW WORLD TO HIS STUDENTS

Einstein from left and rightI love this Symbol, it shows both the teaching and the learning of the ‘true inner knowledge’ – it speaks of how, if we’re paying attention, we can learn so much from each other, as well as teach or lead by example. This is one of the degrees of the Super Galactic Center and no matter what shape or form you give to the concept of ‘God’, we can have the spirit of God come through to us and give us direction, hope and understanding. I often think of the movie Dead Poets Society as this degree describes the theme of that movie so well…

This Symbol implies the gaining of wisdom and the passing on of knowledge to others who are receptive to the teachings. It can also show ‘channeling’ of pure instinctual knowledge. Whether you are a “Student” or a “Teacher”, information is available to you and others and there’s much to be learnt. The “True Inner Knowledge” may be conventional teachings or wisdom, although it’s more likely to be more modern concepts that are being passed on as this is about “The New World”. Insight, knowledge, and, experience are present. Conventional certifications of knowledge, such as diplomas, are probably not important; it’s what’s being brought through that’s important.

Looking within. Being a guiding light. Seeking the truth. Teachers of the “New World”. Having the answers that others seek. Listening and learning. Instinctual knowledge.

The Caution: Dogmatism. Believing that one has the only answers. Arrogance. Evangelism. The blind leading the blind. Feeling above everybody. Gurus and cult dogma.

Saturn On Scorpio 21: Soldiers Going AWOL

Saturn is on Scorpio 21: OBEYING THEIR CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS

Soldier Going AWOLCheck out this placement of Saturn – so many people around the world are not buying the stories that we are being given about this new war. It could be said that WWIII is about to break out – I seriously hope not!!!! But, that’s been the conjecture. So many want to stop hearing about, thinking about, being sidelined because of, or seeing the images of war. So many are SO over it. But, the guys with the hats, both black and white, just loves ‘em some war.

So many are wanting to go AWOL on so many levels. There are many ways to go AWOL…

This Symbol shows someone who’s “Conscience” stops them from following a certain course of action, staying with a project or relationship when they’d rather leave, or, someone not prepared to compromise their values to do something that society says they must do. You may find yourself in situations where what you are expected to do is against your inner values, conscience or how you see your future unfolding. You may at times in your life have to make the difficult choice between allegiance to duty and your own inner truth. True freedom can only be found when one faces situations with a sense of integrity and prepared to face the consequences, be they positive or negative.

Personal morality. Doing what one’s conscience dictates. Longing for a return to a state of love and innocence. Love that restrains. Not following orders. Going AWOL.

The Caution: Cowardice or lack of courage to act. Not doing what is expected. ‘Going over the top’ in a wild and crazy way. Freezing and confining emotions. Tantrums.

Venus is on Virgo 27: ARISTOCRATIC ELDERLY LADIES DRINKING AFTERNOON TEA IN A WEALTHY HOME

Witches Having TeaAre you enjoying your home? Enjoying the company of others? Feeling like life is supporting you and looking after your comforts? Do you get time to catch up with friends and family? This is lovely degree and can be very comforting, but it can also signify the differences that loom between the haves and the have-nots.

Face your situation with elegant composure as it will bring the respect of others. However, keeping things looking “respectable” may take on too much importance. The question is: How real about life and each other are the people gathering together? There is no need to rush. Sharing your time with people who quietly know and understand each other will bring peace of mind.

Quiet knowing atmosphere. Special privileges for the few. Taking time off to relax with friends. The appreciation of culture.

The Caution: Social exclusivity and smugness. Idle gossip. Expecting others to do the hard grind.

The Sun Traversing The Super Galactic Center On Libra 4: Communing With One’s Tribe

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Libra 4: A GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE SIT IN SPIRITUAL COMMUNION AROUND A CAMPFIRE

Spiritual Communion Around The Campfire 1920The Sun is still traversing the Super Galactic Center; the part of the zodiac that is seen as being aligned with the ‘Mind Of God’ – it’s an enormous repository of energies and having the Sun going over the degrees of the SGC  can bring through all kinds of miracles, large and small.

The Campfire Symbol asks: Are you with your ‘tribe’? Do you feel supported, encouraged and nourished by others? Do you have a common goal that unites you with others?

This Symbol implies the desire or the need to be with others who share similar feelings, aspirations and goals and beliefs. There is a common focus here amongst the “Group” that opens up to creative and enlivening possibilities. There may be the feeling of being ‘out there’, in the ‘wilderness’, and you may be in some way, whether you’re miles from anywhere or you’ve been bought together by something very unique or unusual. It may be important to keep in mind that you don’t have to be going alone – there is a “Group” of people who share the same beliefs and concerns. Gathering with them will lift your spirits. The “Campfire” can be anything that unites people in a common cause.
Material concerns left behind. Pioneering with like-minded others. Unity. Fellowship. Campfires. Sweat lodges. Having a common focus, interest, hobby or perspective, etc.
The Caution: Being too dependent on others. Feeling left out and having to fend for one’s self. Rejecting fellowship because of feeling lost or alone. Obsession with objectives.

Spending time with like minded people can bring wonderful results as the Sun continues it’s journey through the next few degrees over the next couple of days. We have this ‘Campfire’ degree, and then, over the next few days, we have

Libra 5: A MAN TEACHING THE TRUE INNER KNOWLEDGE OF THE NEW WORLD TO HIS STUDENTS

then,

Libra 6: A MAN WATCHES THEIR IDEALS TAKING A CONCRETE FORM BEFORE HIS INNER VISION

This is a great time to concentrate on the true inner teachings, to open ourselves us to the potentials that we have so long been building up in our lives. This is quite an interesting, exciting journey… !
