Do you remember this past Spring when Venus was running the show? Between the Libra full moon, Taurus new moon and rare Venus Transit, the Goddess was awakening, encouraging us to remember our sacredness and the sacredness of the earth. My moon gathering friends and I celebrated with a sweet day in Ojai and allowed mama earth to nourish and fill us up so that we could endure the crazy eclipse cycle and transformational fires that Gemini and summer would bring.
Libra’s scales have tipped, and we are now just past Autumn equinox, heading towards Hallowmas and the death of another year. Venus returns full force for another unique lunation, but this time it is to help us realign and gracefully release into the earth for rest and renewal. Her loving embrace, if we choose to accept it, will hold us firmly and safely through the final months of 2012.
