The 1st June – Dark Mutable Air Venus
In a world that favours the bright and dazzling colours, the dark has developed many negative and fearful associations. It conjures up images of concealment, loss, isolation, madness, failure, grief and the demonic shadow. The alchemical power of such a phase may therefore be lost since the purpose of the dark phase of any cycle is that of transition between the death of the old and the birth of the new. The dark time is merely a time of retreat; of healing; of stillness; of true listening; of acceptance and surrender; of dreaming; and of preparation to die.
The name Dark Venus comes from the fact that Venus has slipped from our sight and therefore is deemed invisible. Yet the irony of this title is that Venus actually is sufficed with light, as she enters the Vault of Light! Her invisibility is lit with the translucent quality of transformation, as she prepares to be cleansed through a transmutation process on the 3rd June.
The heart-pause of the past 17 days has encouraged an active re-evaluation, re-appraisal and re-envisioning of the ways in which you openly and honest speak of lOve.
The forthcoming couple of days is ideal to contemplate the way in which you have lOved; the psychology underlying how you have earned a living; the scripts that you have experienced within your relationships and social life; and the way in which you have created from your heart over the past 8 years. This exploration will enable to you understand the recurring patterns in your life concerning the health of your heart-consciousness. Without censoring your feelings, this magical time is one to allow all emotions to rise; to re-experience and acknowledge each heart ache and heart joy and to thank them for the hard lessons and the ecstasy they have provided you, and to start to dream about what you want to invite into your life.
