Venus, the ruler of Taurus, appears as the Morning Star to bless your personal development. At 3 degrees Gemini, Venus is concerned with purifying your Mental body. To do this, focus your awareness of the joys you experienced as a child. For me, one of my most happy memories was the anticipation of opening Christmas presents. I loved that final week before Christmas when school was out for winter break and it was only a matter of time before there were new toys to play with. Venus says to return to that vibration, whatever it is for you. Why? As the world shifts and changes, being able to rise above the destructive forces of the mind, you can maintain clarity even in the murkiest of situations.
Enter Black Moon Lilith & Sedna
Black Moon Lilith is conjunct the New Moon and Sun. She becomes the answer to your prayers over the next six months. Black Moon Lilith is the original goddess before Eve. She embodies your Divine Feminine empowerment. Sedna, the goddess of betrayal and abandonment, reaches out through the Cosmos to hold the hand of the Black Moon. Pluto Retrograde, Lord of Karma, harmonizes with the Goddesses to help redeem your forgotten Shadow. How to work with your Shadow is to connect with your primal fears. Black Moon Lilith and Sedna both appear in your Natal Chart. Here you can rediscover the Shadow work your Soul is ready to evolve through. When Black Moon Lilith is in Taurus, the primal fear is a fear of scarcity.
