Venus On Gemini 18: Two Chinese Men Talking Chinese

Venus is on Gemini 18: TWO CHINESE MEN TALKING CHINESE IN A WESTERN CROWD

Two Chinese Men Speaking Chinese In A Western Crowd(Just the second I started posting this, a message came through on Viber on my phone – it was telling me to check out a certain video (which I won’t, thanks) and it was a Russian url – ha. )

Do you feel that you’re somehow isolated from those you might prefer to talk with? Do you feel a need to connect with those of like mind? Are you wondering where those that share the same ideas are?

Sometimes, it’s not so much the actual language or subject matter that is the concern, sometimes it’s the nuances, the small inflections, the changes in tone that are not picked up… this can lead to not understanding each other or what each other are trying to convey.

This Symbol implies being able to find someone to communicate with, even when you’re in what might feel like alien territory. You may feel that you are often surrounded by people who don’t understand you or even suspect your ways of doing things or your motives. Finding someone of like mind or feeling will help you feel more comfortable and secure. Thinking and speaking in your native tongue or a language that reflects your thoughts and beliefs will bring greater ease and comfort. Sharing mutual thoughts can help transcend feelings of alienation and can lead to new understanding.

Transcending feelings of alienation. Having a specialized language that doesn’t communicate with everyone. Having a completely different mindset. Interpretations.

The Caution: Not adapting to the world around you. Being with people who don’t share philosophies or understanding. Not communicating on your own level. Judging others as different.

The Sun On Taurus 6: A Bridge Being Built Across A Gorge

The Sun is on Taurus 6: A BRIDGE BEING BUILT ACROSS A HIGH NARROW GORGE

Bridge carrick-a-rede, rope bridgeWhat distances do you feel that you need to span? Are there situations where you need to reach out to others? Are you feeling the weight of separation and loneliness? Is there something you can do to bring disparate situations or people together? Are you the bridge itself?

This Symbol speaks of the ability, or the necessity, of being a bridge for yourself or others in order to link people, things, places or understanding. People who act like bridges provide a great service for others as they make it possible to overcome limitations and to move forward. To build a bridge takes time, tools, energy, help and perseverance. Once it is completed, the dangers that it spans are no longer of any real concern, or, at least, the people can rely on getting across to the other side as there’s a space that’s been made for crossing over. One of your jobs is to break down barriers between people.

Overcoming distance and separation. Endeavoring to build continuity. Solving problems. Bridging emotional chasms. Spanning gaps. Going straight ahead and not looking down.

The Caution: Taking the long way round to avoid asking for help. Using shortcuts to cut across the real issue, thereby avoiding facing up to facts. Only seeing risks, not solutions.

Mercury On The White Dove Flying Over Troubled Waters Degree: Taurus 22

Mercury is on Taurus 22: A WHITE DOVE FLYING STRAIGHT AND FEARLESSLY OVER TROUBLED WATERS

White Dove Bringing A MessageIt is truly amazing how the Sabian Symbols are structured – if we take the grand cross of 22 fixed, Leo 22 is A Carrier Pigeon Fulfilling Its Mission, Aquarius 20 (two degrees off, but it’s still there…) on A Large White Dove Bearing A Message and Scorpio 22 Hunters Protected By Heavy Clothing Are Shooting Wild Ducks… extraordinary… so, my point is that 22 fixed is very very much about this message…. none of these degrees are ‘separate’ from each other – they work together as a part of the holographic whole…

This Symbol implies a talent for bringing calm, protection and good tidings to those who need help. Although there may be trouble all around, you are able to rise above this and find safe ground. You may have to cross over into the dark side in order to bring order and safety to people’s lives. Even though you may be lost from sight for a while and people may feel you have abandoned them, you will return and guide them to safety and reassurance. You may need to send a message to those who could be feeling left out and in need of reassurance.

Transcending worry through spiritual awareness. Prophetic mission. Messages and symbols of peace. Going for objectives. Calming troubled minds. Redemption and hope.

The Caution: Being too caught up in worries. Not being able to accept that things are getting better or any form of solace. Always dipping into dramatic situations.

Venus On The Activist On A Platform: Gemini 16

Venus is on Gemini 16: A WOMAN ACTIVIST ON A PLATFORM, IN AN EMOTIONAL SPEECH, DRAMATIZING HER CAUSE

An ActivistI’m posting this a bit late, but it still has a few hours to run on this degree. It’s curious how there was more of a ‘protesting voice’ around the celebrations of ANZAC Day…. I think it’s because so many of us are tired of war, tired of seeing people sacrifice their lives – the horrors of war…. all that.

Have you found yourself ‘dramatising your cause today?’.

This Symbol shows the periodic need to be able to voice one’s needs, frustrations or demands without fear of being reprimanded. Sometimes, you may feel misunderstood and disadvantaged simply because of who you are or the position you hold. Even when you stand up for what you feel, you may strike resistance, partly due to others’ ignorance. You must press your case or the status quo will remain. If the cause is just and your communications are clear, you will be heard by those who understand or resonate with what you are saying and your influence will spread.

Stating one’s case. Revealing social passions. Being a mouthpiece for personal or social causes. Wanting people to listen and care. Taking it to the streets. Having a platform.

The Caution: Aggressively pressing opinions on the unwilling and disinterested. Rational or political structures overriding one’s life. Throwing tantrums and yelling. Soapboxes.

Mercury On Taurus 21: A Moving Finger Pointing To Passages In A Book

Mercury is on Taurus 21: A MOVING FINGER POINTS TO SIGNIFICANT PASSAGES IN A BOOK

Moving finger points to significant passages in a bookHere’s a quote I like about this quote: The telephone book is full of facts, but it doesn’t contain a single idea. Mortimer Adler.

and

We sometimes get all the information, but we refuse to get the message. Cullen Hightower…

This Symbol points to going by the book and taking things as rules to be lived or taking things literally. You may feel as though you either feel that you know all about life, or that you need to learn all about it. You could feel as though you have read the book on life. There are, however, finer details that you may have missed and you may need to look again. There is a clear indication that you need look for something outside of yourself for clues on how to live or how to be. However, be discriminating about what is really significant. Find the essential details of a situation and disregard the rest.

Looking for clues. Reading significant pieces of writing. Instruction manuals. Lawyers and the law. Oracles and synchronicities of reading passages that reflect life.

The Caution: Doing things because they need to be done. Going only by the rules of the book. Automated responses. Religious fundamentalism. Keeping tallies. Flaunting rules.

Mars is on Taurus 18: Cleaning Out What Needs To Be Cleaned Out

Mars is on Taurus 18: A WOMAN AIRING AN OLD BAG THROUGH A SUNNY WINDOW TO GIVE IT AIR AND SUNSHINE

A Woman Airing An Old BagThis degree can show the need to throw out things that no longer work… I’m doing that today big time, :)  I’m determined to get rid of things I don’t use, things other people CAN use… things that tie me down.

Here’s a quote I quite like from George Bernard Shaw: Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world… (moments before seeing that Mars was on this degree, I thought how I must wash the window in my kitchen).

It could be time to finally throw out that thing, that memory, that relationship, that issue, that god forsaken thing that holds you down, holds you back, keeps you in servitude to it.

This Symbols speaks of clearing up clutter, washing and purifying and bring and air and light to situations. It often symbolizes psychotherapy and other self help disciplines that cleanse and purify the mind, emotions and soul. There is often the need to clean out your cupboards, along with your old habits and routines. By keeping everything in your inner self, you can cause a clutter that is restricting. Bring these things to the outer world and see if they are still relevant in the light of day, discarding those that don’t measure up.

Scrubbing clean and airing out. Psychoanalysis. Past life regressions or memories. Renewal. Throwing out the old, outworn or outlived. Renovations. Letting sunshine in.

The Caution: Expecting others to take responsibility for cleaning up and airing out. Hanging onto old, outworn things and memories. Endless chatter about things that need to be forgotten.

The Sun On Taurus 5: The Widow At An Open Grave

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Taurus 5: A YOUTHFUL WIDOW, FRESH AND SOUL-CLEANSED FROM GRIEF, KNEELS AT AN OPEN GRAVE TO RECEIVE THE SECRET OF ETERNAL LIFE

Widow At An Open Grave sayingListening to the radio as I drove today, the focus was on the ANZACs and their sacrifice and tales of their death, etc. I also heard that it is the centenary of the Armenian genocide and there was details (mostly extremely distressing) about that. I also heard about planned suicide (euthanasia), and, I saw a very old black, vintage looking hearse that was driving beside me for some time.

I find this degree very evocative… as mentioned earlier, it is the degree of the Sun every year on ANZAC day.

I did a lecture at a conference in New Zealand at Lake Taupo – I think it was 1995 – on the Sabian Symbols. A lovely English lady, living in NZ, was sitting at the back of the room with her daughter. She asked me if one could calculate their numerology from their name and look up the relevant Symbol. I said that one could, but, unless you have a lot of letters in your name, you are going to end up with the signs Aries Taurus, Gemini as it would be difficult to get a higher score than that. I went back to my talk and then she and her daughter burst into laughter. I stopped speaking and asked what was happening – “come on, you have to share”, I said. The woman said she’d added up the letters in her name and it came to 35 – Taurus 5 – The Widow At The Open Grave. They were both laughing quite loudly. I asked what was funny about that and she said that her husband had built her coffin and it was in the garage and every time she came into or left the house she would see it. I said that that was nice of him and she said “oh, he built one for himself as well”… she said there two coffins were standing up, side-by-side in the garage.

Life is stranger than fiction. I said that I would want to take both of the coffins out onto the lawn and set fire to them.

This Symbol speaks of things from the past that sometimes block progress in the present or the future. Don’t let loss beckon you to give up and throw everything away. There must always be a time to grieve, but what is lost is lost and cannot be regained by losing yourself. Know when it’s time to fill in the grave and let go, whether it’s literally letting go of people who have passed away or have disappeared from your life in order to move on. Gather up your energies and move towards new objectives letting go of the old.

Letting go of relationships and things that no longer work. Purging the past. Gradual realization of the illusion of matter. The passage of grief. Redundancies.

The Caution: Wasting time staring at lost opportunities. Grudges and hard feelings that last much longer than they have to. Divorce and loss and the grief that can ensue.

Mercury And Mars on Taurus 19: A New Continent Arising

A New Continent Rising From The Ocean

Mercury, and soon Mars, is on Taurus 19: A NEW CONTINENT IS RISING OUT OF THE OCEAN

This Symbol shows the rising of a new place, a new place to be, a new country or somewhere to be or to live. It implies that you can find that extra spark to create a brand new, original opportunity. This pictures the beginning of something that holds an enormous amount of potential for the future. There is much work to be done developing this into something fertile and productive. A whole new field of activity is coming to light. What you have done in the past has led you to this, but these new beginnings need to be met with a fresh sense of purpose and possibility.

Enormous potentiality emerging. Sudden eruptions of talent or fields of endeavor. New trends and ways of being. Atlantis and ancient underwater cities. Foreign nations.

The Caution: Continually seeking ‘new worlds’ – not finding a place and cooperation in the existing one. Moving on constantly without finishing up with the old.

Venus On The Telepathic Communication Degree: Gemini 14

Venus is on Gemini 14: TWO PEOPLE, AT WIDELY DIFFERENT POINTS, ARE IN CONVERSATION WITH EACH OTHER BY MEANS OF TELEPATHY

TelepathyThis Symbol speaks of psychic and clairvoyant communication with others and the ability to be able to pick up on what others are thinking. You can communicate with someone and it is not always necessary to be physically face-to-face, or on the phone or emailing them or the like. You can have bonds with others that are unaffected by distance or the frequency of actually be in touch with each other. Let your heart tell you that you are always in their company and there is no need to feel alone. Keeping others in your mind and heart will communicate something to them, and probably they back to you.

Conquering space and time limitations. Psychic and mental communication. Sharing ideas. The ‘other person’ knowing what is felt or thought. Being on the same frequency.

The Caution: Blocking out psychic awareness because it’s frightening. Manipulating others by subtle means. Mind and thought control. Being separated by time and space.
