“Let us love winter
for it is the spring of genius.” Pietro Aretino
One of the Sabian symbols for Tuesday’s Full Moon 25 degrees of Gemini is.”Winter’s frost in the woods.” This symbol reminds us of the frozen nature of winter and of dormancy – part of a cycle in which nothing appears – on the surface – to be happening. It echoes the idea of this time of year when people throughout time have lit bonfires, put candles in the windows etc to brighten their way through the darkness to the rebirth of the light on the Winter Solstice.
It bodes well to provide times for quiet, reflection and illumination especially during this Full Moon and through the end of December. During this time frame there is likely to be increased volatility. Tempers can be short and rushing and impulsive behavior are more likely to result accidents. Slow down and take extra care when traveling.
In general we are entering into a time of complex planetary activity.
In an online discussion of the Venus retrograde station on the Winter Solstice, one of the astrologers spoke of the love nature of Venus and that it is related to how we make love manifest in our lives and in the world.
Among other things she said, ” Look into the eyes of the bank teller you are dealing with. Think about the people in your life that you love and make sure that they know it.”
More to come on the Venus Retrograde soon.
