Oh, Venus!

Venus, cometh! Venus the planet that represents the divine feminine arrives transiting between Sun and Moon right after the awesome full moon of yesterday. Can you feel it? This is when I say “Bring it On!” Who knows what will happen with this astrological event. I am excited.

The alignment between the Sun, Moon, and Venus represents the awakening of the divine feminine. In Sanskrit Venus means Shukra or white. In Vedic astrology the risings and settings of Venus represent death and rebirth and forms a serpent in the sky or the death and rebirth serpent, which is akin kundalini shakti, while the planet itself represents desire and governs the reproduction system and artistic talent. (From Light on Life by Hart de Fouw & Robert Svoboda) Hmm.

Energetically, I see this as a time to live fully in your heart, create your life from a place of your heart’s inner-most desires, a time of relationship building and co-creation, a time when we feel synergy, union, and awakening. Yet, on the shadow side of this energy we must be prepared for the “deaths” or drastic changes that may happen in our lives, as that is in the serpent energy as well as in the energy of transformation and rebirth. In this, I see the deaths as elements of our lives that are no longer in alignment with our highest good or purpose. We must transform and allow the death of what is not benefiting us to take place and let the process unfold, so we may come into more of our truth. With all of the changes abounding and the energetic shifts happening, breathing, yoga, being in nature and nourishment through food and community are so important. Take time if you can to feel what is happening in your self, and listen for guidance. Now, is the time to listen deeply. With that listening came this poem and it came from this crow that loves to wake me up in the morning.  It’s that good ole’ crow totem spreading its magic into my life that always gets me.  Here is a poem I wrote this morning inspired by Venus and the crow.


“The Venus-Crow”
Crow, you awaken
my beloved and I
this morning with your song
like no other
like sounds of death and rebirth
meeting in holy blazes on that tree outside

Crow, you awaken
my beloved and I
like Venus’ transit
between Sun and Moon
riding on a serpent’s back
awakening us all
to the calls of the Divine

Will we listen?
