One of the Sabian symbols associated with the Venus station Tuesday May 15 at 23 degrees of Gemini is ,”Three fledglings in a nest high up in a tree.” Often there is a lofty feeling about our spiritual or philosophical beliefs and that somehow those belief systems are above or separate from our everyday lives. This retrograde period (through late June) bodes well for reviewing our personal values (what we believe to be true- spiritually or philosophically) and how closely those values are actualized in our everyday lives. It is a good time to revisit core beliefs and whether they have been overly compromised due to events along the way and to move in a direction of more personal integrity and authenticity.
All times mentioned EDT, Sabian symbol references from 360 Degrees of Wisdom by Lynda Hill.
“Enchanted and spellbound, in the silence they lingered
And rowed the boat as the light grew steadily strong
And the birds were silent as they listened for the heavenly music
And the river played the song…” Van Morrison, Piper at the Gates of Dawn
The influence of the Pluto/Uranus conjunction – one of the signatures of 2012 Astrology – is growing stronger and will be exact for the first time in June. This aspect has to do with the evolutionary changes occurring on the earth now, including the tsunamis, earthquakes and stronger than usual storms. One of the questions symbolized by this aspect concerns how we inhabit the earth and whether there are more harmonious ways to do so. Throughout time people have found inspiration and healing by visiting hidden springs and mystical sites. It is a good time now to visit or find special places that have that kind of meaning and significance for you. It can be as small as a local fountain – a place that can restore peace and tranquility in trying times and allow for a more meaningful spiritual and personal connection to the earth.
