On the 5th of April, Venus entered Pisces.
On the 7th of April Mercury entered Aries,
Venus in Pisces shares
but she is also lonely, impersonal, a visionary lover.
Solitude that’s her place,
Or maybe she is dancing, drinking in sensation,
not aligned to any one lover, instead, open to all
Mercury in Aries is an original thinker.
A Hero, Honesty, a letter written in ALL CAPS!
Competition! He enjoys kicking a wasp nest as much as anyone,
In Aries, Mercury fights for the joy of it.
Fortune favors the bold!
Sharp words and a kind heart.
Aries Mercury speaks without thinking, be aware.
It’s mostly Earth that’s missing right now,
& the Air we have is dispassionate, but not detached.
we have Water, and we have Fire, here comes the steam.
Is it hard to see in heat of the steam-room?
Watch as Jupiter opens doors for Venus,
Venus takes her place in exaltation, to co-mingle with Neptune and Chiron.
Passive individual allure, mystery attracts.
Venus in Pisces wants love, money, pleasure, art, but not to keep.
Rather, she is in it for the experience,
kindness offered with an open hand.
Jupiter in Crab is a gardener, who loves to see each flower grow.
Wide open perspective and generosity are rewarded,
Jupiter startles awake (uranus) a lucky chance.
as beauty (venus) brings opportunities that could otherwise be missed.
Jupiter co-rules Pisces, right alongside Neptune.
In Pisces, Venus will sacrifice.
Ruled by Jupiter in Crab, that sacrifice will not be death,
as it might be, if ruled by Scorpio.
a mountain spring, or holy water,
something that disperses inside you, an ethereal life giving quality
Crab and Pisces, Devotion and Acceptance.
Freedom is involved in this,
the freedom to let go, as the river branches,
as someone makes their own mistakes,
or pick them up when they fall.
The more responsibility you take for your place in your life at the moment,
the more control you have, the better you feel.
It’s a mix of owning your life, while accepting that so much is out of your hands
when the wave comes,
we float like a bubble on the curve
as long as you are reading this, breath is blessing you with consciousness,
and in that consciousness there is an opening to a new world.
Venus in Pisces asks us to allow things to happen.
To make room for the unforeseen positive outcome,
to not abandon our humanity as we deal with a ruthless, unforgiving and unstable bottom line
This week the Full Moon we are building towards on April 14/15th is
a Total Lunar Eclipse in Libra.**
First come the endings
Count it as active now.
can there be a beginning mixed in? yes, naturally, some endings are like that
Actions with unexpected consequence,
reality is always a surprise no matter how far away you see it coming.
Words with a knife edge of finality will be spoken.
Forgiveness is a easy word to say, a hard one to learn,
I was well grown before I knew anything about it.
If you need a shortcut, try this:
if something is hurting you, if something wants to leave, LET GO.
Internal triggers pressed by events NOW
On April 28/29th, we begin a story that plays out for 6months,
& in many cases much longer: New Moon Eclipse.
I’ll be writing more & make some movies about the Eclipses!
Oh Yes I will!!!
*~Surfers have the odd habit of saying “I drowned” when they mean “I almost drowned.” Drowning, after all, feels like almost drowning until it feels like nothing. When I ask Dollar to explain the sensation of almost drowning, his answer, and the way he holds his face as he says it, makes me feel that the question is an intrusive one. “It’s just depressing and lonely,” he says, not making eye contact. “The lights start turning off, literally. It blinks in your mind and goes black. Pretty soon, it’s just lights out and you’re done.” He pauses awkwardly. “It’s really fucking weird.”
Surf contests might be the strangest of all athletic competitions.They’re not fair, and they can’t be. Each wave presents a different set of challenges, and depending on how many happen to break during a heat — and on a surfer’s own tenacity — he might catch one or five or none…He can take off on as many or as few as he likes, and often there are multiple men to a wave.
… Getting barreled (traveling as the wave curls above you, creating a tunnel) is objectively the most impressive feat in surfing, and it is always the thing that nonsurfers assume must just be an optical illusion. When Skindog finally emerges, he’s still standing. The crowd cheers.
Skindog’s wave is, for lack of a better word, awesome. Or insane. Or a slow, silent what the fuck. Such a big wave produces such a crude reaction that there’s really no need for more precise vocabulary. Maybe surfers talk the way they do because they’re used to being amazed, and that carries over into their ordinary interactions. This wave does not inspire nuanced feelings in me. Basically, I’m just like, dude.~ -Alice Gregory
