Sunday inspiration for healing a wounded heart

Today the Sun is in a harmonious sextile to Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing.  Chiron in the natal chart shows where each of us have been wounded, and where the key to our reclaiming the soul lie.

When the Sun shines its brilliant light of self-realization into the wounds of the soul we have the opportunity to release our bondage to the past and gain greater wisdom.

Sun conjunct Chiron

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.”

Here’s something to perk up your day!

Venus conjunct UranusEvery page is a new beginning.

Venus conjoins Uranus today, and since both are in Aries it’s gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight, if you heed the siren song of Venus, the planet of love and connection, hooking up with the iconoclast and rebellious Uranus.  And with both in Aries, the potential for fireworks is high!

Jeff and Michelle are having a fascinating discussion over at the Sasstrology site.  Uranus can bring sudden changes of fortune, and with Venus approaching Uranus this could mean sudden changes in our interpersonal relationships. :

Michelle: They’re paired up in the sign of Aries, which is all about a new beginning. But Uranus can sometimes be about separation. So when we get Venus conjunct Uranus in Aries, it really begs the question, is it the beginning or the end? The answer to that isn’t immediately apparent, because Venus has just come out of Pisces, which is affiliated with endings, and then we’ve got the contrast with Aries (new beginnings), and then we have this unpredictable element provided by Uranus, which is associated with surprising plot twists. So this could signify a surprise beginning of a relationship; somebody brand new pops into the scene out of seemingly nowhere, but it could also signify separation. And again, that really depends on the strength and the quality of the relationship that you’re talking about.

Jeffrey: And sometimes a beginning brings on an ending. Venus is, among other things, the planet of love and relationships and romance. You may suddenly meet someone new, which—if you’re already in a relationship—could precipitate an ending. So one thing I would advise—especially because this combination is happening in impulsive Aries—is to look […]

The roots of Easter in pre-Christian paganism

Easter Week continues at Astrological Musings!

Here is an interesting video detailing the pagan sources of the roots of the Christian Easter celebration.

This will be a controversial video for Christians, so please proceed at your own risk. There is a factual inaccuracy in the video in that its author, Acharya S, states that Easter means Pessach in Hebrew but I believe that this is incorrect. Pessach is the Hebrew name for the ancient Hebrew celebration of freedom after a long period of bondage in Egypt. Unlike the Christian holidays, which are rooted in pagan celebrations of the movement of the Sun and the Moon in an apparent path around the earth, Jewish holidays celebrate historical events. The Jewish calendar is a lunar one, so there is some connection to the soli-lunar path, but it is an accidental one.

She also claims that there is no historical basis in fact for the existence of Jesus, a subject of much debate that is better left to another time and place.

In any case, please enjoy the video!

Easter Week at Astrological Musings

inanna descent into underworldMost of the so-called Christian holidays have deep roots in astrotheology, and Easter is no different.  The very dating of Easter, the great holiday of resurrection, is based on the timing of the first Full Moon after the vernal equinox.

This week I’ll be posting articles correlating astrology, or astrotheology, and Easter.  Today’s post comes from Beth Turnage and focuses on one of my favorite stories: the descent of Inanna.  Often I tell this story to clients who are undergoing transits of Pluto that require them to venture into the Underworld and like Inanna, be stripped of all veneer and fakery that prevents them from experiencing The Big Truth.

[Inanna’s]  story is a journey of development and evolution. The young Inanna rescues the huluppu-tree, the sacred tree, (whose four main branches pointed to each of he cardinal points) when a flood has carried it into the river; she plants this tree in her garden so that eventually its wood can be used to make her “shining throne” and “her shining bed”. From the beginning, her desire for rulership is paramount, and she is angry and frustrated because the older deities have all the me, the manifestations of authority, wisdom and ability. …

But Inanna’s twin sister, Ereshkigal, had a dominion all her own before Inanna secured her earthly authority, the Underworld. There she judged the souls of the dead. Barren though it was, it was a place of ultimate power, as even the other gods feared to entered and face the Voice of Ereshkigal, the ultimate judge, who could seal even the gods away into the depths of the Underworld.

Inanna is not satisfied with being just the Queen of Heaven, so she decides to face her sister in the Underworld. […]

Nicolas Cage and the Libra Full Moon

Nicolas Cage was arrested today for assaulting his wife during an argument over which house was their New Orleans rental house.

Mr. Cage is no stranger to tabloid news, having recently lost homes both in New Orleans and Bel Air to foreclosure, was directly affected by the Libra Full Moon which peaks tomorrow and which exactly aspects an aspect between the Libra Moon and Mars in his chart.  That Moon/Mars aspect in his natal chart can be very difficult since the aggressive urge of Mars is constantly irritating the tenderness of the Libra Moon which creates dissonance.  The Full Moon tends to shine a light on our internal emotional world which is why so many people find a heightened intensity in all areas of life at the time of the Full Moon.
