I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each
I do not think they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back.
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.” TS Eliot
Venus is in Pisces now and approaching a conjunction to Neptune the lord of the sea (widely in influence through the 20th of the month.) The veils between the worlds are thin as a result and this transit provides a good time for the imagination, for creative growth and for spiritual growth. Many of TS Eliot’s significant poems are about his journey towards a higher vision and faith.
This is an unearthly transit and it bodes well to keep safe boundaries in place as a result. One of the Sabian symbols associated with this transit is, “Illuminated by a shaft of light, a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist.” An Indian proverb speaks wisely of this – “Call on God, but steer away from the rocks.”
