Early April

I’m just going to start by repeating part of  Collapse? or Reorg!

The Star of early April is an Initiation of Venus by Mars, conjunct Eris.  Our Venus-Mars Cycles flavor our Relationships, including our Relationship with ourself.  Aligning Venus-Values and Mars-Action.  From Jung’s perspective, our ultimate Relationship event is the hieros gamos, the marriage between our Inner Female and our Inner Male, because it signals achievement of inner Wholeness. 

Now, remember what Eris is about?  Maybe, Denial?  What an opportunity!  We get to confront all of the arenas where Denial cloaks impediments to our Inner Wholeness!  I saw a car the other day with a big dent in the side, and a sticker on the dent that said, Oh shit!  Another learning opportunity!  No fun.  But dynamite in terms of potential to eliminate self-sabotage from our future!

 The timing runs something like this…

  • Lilith Initiates Vesta April 3, 10am PDT at 23 Gemini, “Three fledglings in a nest high in a tree.”
  • Mars Initiates Venus April 6, 10pm PDT at 20 Aries, “A young girl feeding Birds in winter: Overcoming crises through compassion.”
  • Eris Initiates Venus April 8, 6pm PDT at 23 Aries, “A pregnant woman in a light summer dress.
  • Eris Initiates Mars April 9, 10pm PDT at 23 Aries.
  • New Moon Conjunct Venus-Mars-Eris April 10, 3am PDT at 21 Aries, “A pugilist enters the ring.”
  • Moon crosses Venus-Mars-Eris April 10, 6-10am PDT.
  • Pluto Stationary Retrograde April 12, 1pm PDT.

Which of course means that Pluto is Stationary through this whole process – Stationary meaning Strong, and Pluto Stationary meaning that the Trance is wide open for tinkering.  As we’ll see, the Lilith-Vesta Initiation is heavily involved in these dramas.  Vesta symbolizes what our Heart holds Sacred, and Lilith symbolizes Instinct.  Lilith predates the Apple-Snake Incident, before mind intruded into our lives.  So there shouldn’t be a great deal of Doubt about what needs to be done through all this – it should be so clear that even our Fearless Lizards, er, Leaders, should get it.

The New Moon features interlocking Mjolnirs focusing on Saturn and Lilith-Vesta, with Mercury and Juno for the other feet.  We’ll talk more about that soon, but for now we can suggest that we’ll be confronting the places where our mental habits and our Unconscious Identity conflict with our Yintegrity.  Having our Instinct aligned with the Sacred has a lot in common with our Soul Connection.

And with learning opportunities of this magnitude going on, we need to look to see what sort of Quintiles are about, and there are several.  The Mars-Venus Conjunction is Quintile to both Juno and Ceres – we’ll be learning about Sustainability and Authenticity during this Cycle.  And this chart features a North Node Quintile Yod, with Uranus and Lilith-Vesta for feet.  Boy, it wouldn’t be more clear if the Goddess pulled our hair and wrote it out for us!

Our Mission must serve our Soul Connection and our Sacred Instincts!

That’s the lesson plan.  Phew!  Make the best of it!  We’ll go into more detail about the Quintiles soon as well.

Then we can talk more about all that as we go.  For now, just realize that everybody’s going to be Speaking Truth – use it.  Use it to examine yourself without judgment, should they start talking about you.   Just don’t wear any shoes that don’t fit.  Use it to bring your relationships into alignment with Truth.  Use it to ease yourself out of a job you hate, or ease yourself into the persona you’ve been hiding ever since you started trying to please others.  What you think of me is none of my business – unless I can use the information to reshape my Earth Costume to more closely approximate my Soul Suit.
