Enjoying Venus in Pisces

Ursula Andress – Venus in Pisces.

Since, apparently, the end of the world is upon us, it seems like a good time to indulge oneself a little. 

Venus – the planet of indulgence, luxury and lolling about on a chaise longue having one’s toes oiled by light-fingered lovelies – has just slipped into Pisces, the sign where she is said to be exalted. Lolling does seem to be an exceptionally Piscean sort of non-activity…

Two eclipses and the Cardinal Grand Cross. That’s quite enough drama for one month surely. To read your horoscope click here. Do read the long intro first this month because it explains a bit more about the Cardinal Cross and shows you how you can think about it for yourself.

A Myth To Ponder This New Moon

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.

Before time began, gods emerged from chaos. Uranus, the god of the sky, made love to the earth, Gaia, every night, and from their union were born giants and Titans, both hated by their father, who, consequently, imprisoned his children in the deepest depths of the earth. One, Saturn, escaped.

Gaia, the earth herself, begged Saturn to stop his father’s insatiable desires, so she helped her son castrate his father. The operation was a success. From Uranus’ testicles, cast into the sea, the goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born on a foaming wave.

Saturn took over as top god. Time began.

Tomorrow’s New Moon is in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, itself the sign of beginnings. It conjuncts old Uranus, a god outside time. But this same god, sires both love (Venus) and work (Saturn). These two planets are in a dynamic square this weekend. This would be a thrilling moment — despite everything — to begin something good.
