Kathryn on the Venus retrograde and the Golden Mean

Kathryn notes that the Venus cycle from 2001 to 2007 makes the shape of a pentagram with this interesting analysis:

It’s interesting to note that Venus is associated with love, harmony and proportion when the pentagram that its 5 retrograde cycles describes in the heavens contains a ratio that conforms to the Golden Mean. The Golden Mean is also known as phi- 1.618, or Divine Proportion. Since the ‘discovery’ of phi by the Greeks it became obvious that ‘God Geometrises’ and that the world is essentially founded upon the arrangement of number.

The pentagram has all sorts of occult connotations but it is actually one of the oldest symbols known to man next to the circle. We know this as it has been found etched into cave walls dating back to prehistoric times, showing that Man was obviously tracking the cycles in the skies above him. Next to the Sun and Moon, Venus is the third brightest object in the sky and it periodic disappearance from view at phases in its cycle would have been of tremendous symbolic importance to ancient tribes, whose world stretched only as far as the visible horizon.

The pentagram divides the ecliptic up into 5 equal sections of 72 degrees, which is the quintile aspect in astrology. The quintile refers to creativity, inspiration and the forging of links. Albert Einstein possessed quintiles which brought his Moon, Jupiter and Neptune together in the 5H chart. Here was a Man whose inspiration came in the form of his ‘geometrisation’ of physics.

The cycles of Venus were of particular relevance to ancient civilisations in particular the Mayans. They saw time, not as linear but as a series of interlocking cycles and it is mainly from their observations of the Sun, Moon and […]

Tonight’s Sky

Wow!! Thank you Ursi for yet another fantastic link to this flash movie: “Your Guide to Constellations, Deep Sky Objects, Events and Deep Space.” (Film requires Flash 7 or better). There’s a nice view of the conjunction of Saturn and Venus, just separating from their dance.

Moon/Venus/Saturn line up with Regulus

Venus is still about ten degrees from an exact conjunction with Saturn but the Moon will conjunct Venus today heading towars Saturn and the fixed star Regulus.

I have never worked with the fixed stars but suddenly became fascinated with these stellar bodies over the past few months. I’ve purchased a couple of books on the subject and hope to be able to give you some more information as I learn about them myself. Meanwhile I’ve discovered that Regulus, the star associated with kings in the Leo constellation, is currently at 29 degrees 58 minutes, and will transition into Virgo sometime in the next few years.

I have no idea what this means, but it seems that when one of the brightest stars in the sky, the star that is associated with royalty and kingship, changes signs it could be an event of some significance!

Eris is bigger than Pluto!

The new planet Eris has been found to be 27% larger than Pluto, causing some astronomers to joke about Pluto not being able to catch a break. As astrologers know, however, size doesn’t matter – despite it’s tiny size, Pluto packs a powerful wallop.

I have done just a little work with Eris in charts where it forms tight aspects to other planets and haven’t been able to get a clear sense of how it works. From the lack of published material on the subject, neither has anyone else! On the other hand, not every planet speaks to every astrologer, and many astrologers still do not work with Chiron. I’ll continue to report Eris news as I find it and please help me out by posting any links that you find!
