The Alchemy of Jupiter and Pluto Conjunctions

to have this signature along with images and tables

Unedited version below…link above has additional tables and insights added and part two…

Astrological patterns are recognized in terms of the meaning
that we bring to inner and outer experiences,

although we are perhaps in turn predisposed to the quality
of our experiences by the patterns themselves.
However, rather than trying to pre-empt fate,
to ward it off or pretend it does not exist,
we may perhaps work with it as consciously as we are able:
thus we participate in the alchemical opus,
the hero’s journey, the philosopher’s stone,
or the finding of the long lost kingdom.

 Chiron and the Healing Journey
An Astrological and Psychological Perspective
By Melanie Reinhart

The above quote is from a book on Chiron (the Shamanic Healer) and YET also very much describes the Pluto process especially when Jupiter is involved. You might find it interesting that I wrote the article below before remembering this quote I have loved for over 20 years from Melanie Reinhart. I thought I was done writing this when suddenly I just had to find this quote about I remembered having something to do with the alchemical opus and philosopher’s stone. It feels like the perfect way to begin introducing the concepts shared below.

The intent of this article is to inspire all who read it to discover your own alchemical opus within – transforming your base elements into the golden light of who you truly are! Read More

Moon in Sagittarius

A work in progress…scroll down to Eclipses Near the Great Attractor for June 5, 2020 Full Moon Eclipse insights.

The Full Moon and Summer Solstice are symbolic of each other as both are a time of the greatest amount of light in their cycles. Thus, as we approach the Summer Solstice the Sagittarius Full Moon brings to light the deeper truths of life as we continue to embrace our personal and collective spiritual quest for enlightenment.

The Sagittarius Full Moon symbolizes a time of fulfillment and increased awareness where seeds planted in an earlier cycle are coming to fruition. The seeds of truth we have been cultivating are ready to shine in all their glory.

It is important to consider the correspondence between what we believe is true and what we actually experience in objective reality. Thomas Aquinas stated it this way: “A judgment is said to be true when it conforms to the external reality.”

The evolution of what we believe to be true occurs as our external reality changes and no longer supports the beliefs we once thought were true.

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

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.

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.

Easter and Eostare

See Table Below for Easter Sunday from 2020 through 2049.

Just as there are many traditions surrounding the celebration of Easter, there are many stories and legends surrounding the origin of the word Easter.

Many traditions have viewed this time as a celebration of spring, new life and new beginnings each with their own traditions and points of view. Many of the traditions we have today are inherited from times past.

Eostre, Eostare or Ostara is a Norse, German pagan Anglo-Saxon Goddess of the East, the sunrise or the dawning of a new day, the new season of spring. Read More

Saturn in Aquarius

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.
