Return of the Goddess- Venus in Capricorn

Venus in Capricorn

Venus is now visible in the Evening sky as it sets after the Sun. On December 10th it moves into Capricorn.

We are currently in Venus’s Synodic cycle that began on 17th January at 21 degrees Capricorn. This lasts until August 2015.

Shamanic Astrology tracks the zodiacal position of Venus at each of her heliacal risings creating an overtone for the entire cycle. Each cycle embraces a new feminine archetype that lasts approx. 18 months.

Venus in Capricorn is the Crone, the Wise Woman and the Council of Elders. This is in my mind Sophia, the Goddess of Wisdom.

Venus in Capricorn brings out the ability to earth our dreams, so this is a very auspicious time until she moves into Aquarius on Jan 3rd 2015.

Venus and The Goddess- The Gates of Initiation

Venus is associated with the Sumerian myth of Inanna, the Queen of Heaven who descends into the Underworld to visit her sister Ereskigal and is stripped of her power and her vestments at 7 Gates and then killed by her.

These 7 gates are the 7 chakras.

We can associate the conjunctions Venus makes each month with the Moon, with the 7 gates (or chakras) that Inanna passes through.

The first corresponds to the crown chakra (she gives up her crown) and the last to the root, or sacral chakra (she gives up her life).

  • Venus has been in the ‘Underworld’ and thus invisible since Sept 16th at 16 degrees Virgo.
  • She joined the Sun on Oct 25th at 2 degrees Scorpio.
  • On December 4th Venus became visible once more above the horizon at 22 degrees Sagittarius.
  • She is now transformed and empowered from her initiation with the Sun as is an Evening Star.

Over the next 8 months she meets with the waxing Moon, thus returning through the seven ‘gates’ in the reverse order as she regains her vestments and symbols of power.

December 23rd is the first ‘Gate’ when Venus joins the Moon at 15 degrees Capricorn at 3.17 am GMT.

This is The Gate of Manifestation, the root chakra as she regains her royal robe.

This is a highly significant date as Saturn changes sign that day into Sagittarius at 16.33.

1st Report ‘SkyLog’ in depth Report by Steven Forrest

The first report called ‘Sky Log‘ gives you over 40 pages of in-depth predictions for the first 6 months of the coming year. This report is based on your transits and secondary progressions. The author Steven Forrest, has a great style and explains clearly and poetically – with no jargon – what the planetary transits signify for you.

“The future isn’t crystallized. It’s a wavering, quivering web of possibilities. How will they manifest? Much depends upon how you wield the magical wild card we call your freedom.

The planets offer advice. In a sense, they recommend certain choices over others. They seem biased toward your evolution. They often suggest that you take the less familiar path, the one that moves you into richer fields of your own potentiality.”

This report is based on your transits and secondary progressions for the year ahead. There are two parts to the report:-

THE INVITATION: First, the big questions. In the part of the report called THE INVITATION, he gives you that “mountain-top” perspective that enables you to make sense of the details. Steven speaks in normal english- no jargon – and gives a real depth of understanding to the major planets affecting you in the year ahead.

THE MEANS: He turns your attention to some secondary factors and offers suggestions, help, and support in responding to those big questions.

This amazing 40 plus page report is easy to understand and very detailed.

2nd Report-Your Astro Diary

The second report written by Stephanie Johnson is approx. 20 pages and includes a full colour birth chart and easy bar graph reference for the year. The entries are sorted by the exact date on which each event occurs, with the planets involved.  She writes:-

“The astrological system of Transits is offering us much the same information as a weather forecast. It is giving us an indication of the emotional and intellectual weather of our lives. It is up to us to decide our own destiny.”
