“I have heard the mermaids singing each to each.
I do not think they will sing for 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 chambers of the sea
By sea girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Til human voices wake us and we drown.” TS Eliot
“The Pacific Ocean was overflowing the borders of the map. There was no place to put it. It was so large, wild and blue that it didn’t fit anywhere.That’s why it was left in front of my window.” Pablo Neruda
The planet of the sea god, Neptune is strong in the sky this week as Venus, the planet of love and desire, moves into a harmonious aspect to it. Neptune rules dreams and when combined with Venus can speak of muse-type relationships. As the well known Irish writer, Edna O’Brien once noted people have to be in love to write. Artists throughout time who have been inspired by a muse type figure often have a Venus /Neptune aspect in their charts. It also rules the divine nature of love that is expressed in the work of the ecstatic poets like Rumi and Sappho.
This influence bodes well for endeavors of a creative, imaginative or mystical nature. It bodes well for romance too.
Also Mercury is moving up to an exact trine to Uranus. This bodes well for inventive, innovative thinking. Uranus is the planet of sudden awakening and the planet of the future. It governs all things cyber.
People with a strong Uranus in their chart can have a restless nature and be ahead of their time.
One of the Sabian symbols associated with the Venus/Neptune aspect is, “Men and women travelling a narrow path, seeking illumination.”
