Venus On The Intoxicated Chickens Trying To Fly Degree: Leo 21
Venus is on a rather interesting degree as I write this, and, it’s been on this degree for most of the last day. It’s on Leo 21: INTOXICATED CHICKENS DIZZILY FLAP THEIR WINGS TRYING TO FLY
Now, this can be (curiously and yet amazingly) about our desire to take things to the next level = an ascension in consciousness. Sometimes we flap about, wave our arms and get excited. This can be a fabulous thing and not to be thought less of – we are exercising our ‘wings’, we are getting a sense of that light-heartedness that is around in amongst the heavy and onerous realities of the world ‘out there’. However, sometimes we can lose ourselves in some measure in the endeavour to ‘get out of it’. Venus will soon move onto the next degree Leo 22 – meanwhile, we are, through the agency of Venus in Leo, experiencing some of this…
It’s interesting to note that in the US, the Speaker, John Boehner, resigned in the last 24 hours. He is well known for his drinking and losing the plot (at least it seems to me!)
This Symbol can indicate the loss of reality or rational reactions. Often it shows not being in touch with what’s realistically possible and what’s worth trying. There can be an attempt to do too much or too soon or before maturing enough to be capable of doing it. Still, trying to do things that are outside one’s natural sphere can be a good thing, as long as you don’t overreach and cause damage. Sometimes, first attempts at a new experience may prove less than elegant or skillful. Soon you’ll look back with amusement at these early attempts. Find enjoyment in the “Intoxication”, but come back to earth when the feelings vanish. False courage. Inexperience. Trying to do things beyond the bounds of possibility, capability or responsibility. Taking drugs. Indulging in alcohol. Losing reality.
The Caution: Giddiness and lightheadedness. Unwanted side-effects of trying too much too soon. Getting nowhere. Getting “out of it”. Escaping reality. Manic reactions.
The next news is that, in just a few hours, Venus is moving onto Leo 22: A CARRIER PIGEON FULFILLING ITS MISSION
This Symbol implies a clear sense of purpose and direction, even a sense of divine guidance. The ‘Carrier Pigeon’ may have to go through hardships and obstacles in order to deliver the message it is carrying or to complete the mission. This can be about bridging communications between people or conveying something that someone needs to hear or know. Pigeons were trained to deliver very important messages and some won honors and medals. Be sure that the end is in sight and there is a prize to be won in bringing a message to those who need it. Whatever this Symbol is speaking about, someone has a “Mission” that needs to be fulfilled. Bringer of good tidings or messages. Creating lines of communication. Completing tasks. Setting out on a mission. A sense of destiny. Counseling, mediating and helping others.
The Caution: Gossip. Messages that are not useful to anyone. “Stool pigeons”. Being determined to do something regardless of the consequences. Working until one drops.
A lot can be accomplished by witness what you *don’t* want to be doing, behaving, thinking, attempting, etc, and tuning into what you *do*.
