29 January 2022 Morning Star Venus at the First Gate

2022 Jan 29 at 11 Capricorn

Morning Star Venus enters the first gate into the Underworld when the waning Moon conjuncts Venus representing the seventh chakra. The Sumerians described the cosmological cycle of Venus through the Story of Inanna, Queen of Heaven, as a way to understand and to keep track of the Venus cycle.

The story begins when Inanna decides to attend the funeral of her sister’s husband, Gulaganna (a.k.a the Great Bull of Heaven as this also described the death of the age of the Bull or the age of Taurus). Read More

Venus in Aries What does the Wild Warrior Woman Want?

The archetypal expression that most accurately describes Venus in Aries is the Wild Warrior Amazon. However, back in 1995 a primary archetype Shamanic Astrology connected to Aries was the Wild Woman. What follows is an article I wrote in 2001 describing Venus in Aries from the perspective of the essence of the Wild Woman. Having Venus in Aries myself, I found myself identifying with the Wild Woman then and perhaps even more so now. Here is what I wrote then….

The definition of Wild in the case of the Wild Woman means: a natural, unrestrained life or state; occurring, growing or living in a natural state; intensely enthusiastic; amazing or extraordinary. The healthy Wild Woman lives from a place of pure innocence and knowing, unrestrained by the limiting rules and judgments of the current culture. She knows when she is connected to her inner sense of self or her true self, and from this place she spontaneously acts in a natural and supportive way.
