Corvus – The Raven Constellation

Corvus sitting on the tail of the serpent

Corvus, (latin for Raven) is listed in the 48 Constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy.

Corvus the Raven was tasked by the Greek god Apollo, to take a chalice and collect the waters of life that Apollo needed for a sacred ceremony he was performing.

Corvus did not attend to his task right away, choosing to spend many days waiting to eat figs about to ripen on a fig tree. When Corvus eventually returned to Apollo with the waters of life, the raven claimed he had been delay by Hydra the water snake.  Angry and annoyed, Apollo cursed Corvus with eternal thirst and threw him into the heaven, beside the chalice or cup CRATER, guarded by the watersnake, HYDRA.

This story about the curse of eternal thirst from the Greek perspective is why Ravens have black feathers and raspy voices. Read More

Name Changers are Game Changers

Changing your name changes the game of your life. I was introduced to this idea in 1996 when I met someone who had legally changed her name (and her life as a result) through the Kabalarians. At that time name reports were NOT free but they had a special free name report offer going on when I checked their website so I took advantage of that way back then.

Me as Carolyn Brent in 1999

I was quickly amazed at how accurate the report was describing my life with all three of my legal names:
Carolyn Carter from my birth in 1956 up to 1978
Carolyn Van Cleve from 1978 to 1990
Carolyn Brent from 1990 to 2006S

And I had this powerful sense come over me that I needed to change my name. It wasn’t practical then so I let it go but on the verge of my 50th birthday in the midst of my second divorce I realized it was the perfect time to change my name to something I was choosing for my self. I also decided it was important to choose as consciously as possible.

The only living family in my life at that time were my four children and when I asked them how they felt about me changing my name they all said they didn’t care because they would still call me MOM! Read More

Venus Brightest and Furthest From the Sun

Venus is related to some amazing number magic including when she is brightest and furthest from the Sun (also known as maximum elongation).

It is interesting to note there are 5 Venus Cycles every 8 years and Venus goes around the Sun 13 times in those 8 years. This relates to the Fibonacci sequence 5+8=13.

Additional number magic is 5×8=40 and age 40 is significant Venus Return. Plus Venus is retrograde for about 40 days.

36 and 72 are part of the sacred geometry of Venus.
Venus reaches greatest brightness or illumination in the evening sky about 36 days after greatest elongation from the Sun. This year greatest elongation first occurred on March 24, 2020 and greatest brightness was around April 27 and 28 about 36 days before retrograde Venus conjuncts the Sun happening on June 3, 2020.

July 10, 2020 Venus reaches greatest illumination or brightness in the morning sky about 36 days after her retrograde conjunction with the Sun on June 3. In the morning sky Venus reaches greatest brightness August 13, 2020 about 36 days after greatest elongation.

These Venus Cycle milestones are related to the golden triangle or golden ratio where the two base angles equal 72 degrees and the apex angle equals 36 degrees.

A new Venus Cycle begins with the Gemini Meta Goddess emerging onto the world stage on June 09, 2020 when Venus rises before the Sun as a Morning Star.

The Gemini Meta Goddess This reminding us that for many their minds may love this sort of information real knowing comes from realizing there is no way to know it all. The Gemini Goddess journey will deepen our knowing and open us to love and appreciate what we don’t know and may never know!

Pleiades and the Nebra Sky Disc

The Moon passes the Pleiades once each month re-enacting what is depicted on the Nebra Sky Disc discovered in 1999. http://www.lda-lsa.de/en/nebra_sky_disc/

This disk is considered one of the most important archaeological finds depicting the path of the Sun and the Moon passing the Pleiades.

This artifact dating to at least 1600 BCE was found near Nebra, Saxony-Anhalt in Germany.

The Nebra Sky Disk is 30 cm in diameter and is a bronze blue green with gold symbols. The symbols include the Pleiades star cluster between the Sun and Lunar Crescent suggesting this disk was a time gauge oriented to the rising and setting of the Pleiades alerting them to when the weather would change.

There are aspects of the disk that are also oriented to the seasonal cycles of the Sun. The disk is tracking Solstices at 82 degrees North Latitude exactly where the disk was found. This is a great 10 minute YouTube about the disk for those who want to know more!

Venus Retrograde

Venus usually goes retrograde in the sign of the upcoming new cycle and usually stations direct in the new sign determined by the sign Venus was in when rising as a morning star. Stay tuned for updates to this post.

Saturn in Aquarius

See 9 minute Video on Saturn in Aquarius with more insights below

Aquarius Speaks:
When the mind is open – Wisdom can enter!

Looking ahead to when Pisces Speaks: 
When the mind and heart are open – Wisdom can enter!

With Saturn in Aquarius from March 21, 2020 to March 07, 2023 (dipping back into Capricorn from July 1, 2020 to December 21, 2020) we are being reminded our divine destiny (and the Earth’s) is to Co-Create a new reality based in the principles of Universal Divine Love, Divine Order, Divine Justice, and Divine Knowing or a conscious understanding emanating from the heart of the Creative Life Force, Higher Power, Divine Intelligence or whatever name feels best to you.

Saturn in Aquarius is about assessing the antiquated structures of our reality, tearing them down, and building new innovative, sustainable structures that support and further the Aquarian dispensation that says: everyone should have the freedom to determine their own evolutionary or spiritual path as long as it does NO HARM to any sentient life – including the Earth.
