Osun Rising and the Sweet Seeker of Truth
Astrologically Speaking: Sagittarius The Centaur
The New Moon came in at around 3:40am est. today Friday, December 7, 2018. Venus (Osun) in Scorpio (Oya) had just hit the horizon and was rising. (More about that later) Sagittarius is a fire sign. Some of its keywords include: The Saint, Scholar, Warrior, The Guru, The Truth Seeker, The Explorer, Directness, Integrity and Expansiveness. Sag is associated with Travel, Higher Mind and Higher Education, Holy Places, Mountains and Priests, Direct Communication and Physicality. As represented by the Centaur, half human~half horse, Sag has extreme physical power as it aims its arrows of truth directly at its target, with piercing accuracy. Sag is associated with Sexual Virility, treating sex more like a fun sport r exploration than a bonding and penetrative act. Sag is about Knowledge. Either through direct experience or profound study. Sag is ruled by the planet Jupiter which rules the 9th house. Jupiter is the largest of the planets in our Solar System and with its vastness gives Sag great personal expansion and emotional buoyancy. Sag is always looking for the next Adventure or further expansion and elevation of the self. Always exploring new fields of study and going through spiritual rites. Feeling quite at home in temples, on mainaintops and in Sacred Rituals, Sag also loves to immerse herself in Foreign Culture, to broaden her mind and perspectives on the world. Sag’s color is purple and the part of the body it’s associated with is the legs more specifically the thighs.
Transiting Mars Exactly Conjunct Neptune
It is noteworthy that transiting Mars and Neptune are exactly Conjunct. Exact Conjunctions represent powerful (momentary) alignment and alliance. Mars of course is about Action and Passion while Neptune is about the Intangible, the Spiritual, the Feeling. It would seem that these two would have a hard time getting along but there has to be cooperation for this combination to work in the best way. This actually is a great suppport to a Sag New Moon. Together Neptune and Mars are “Focused Spiritulity”, “Compassionate Warriorship”. “a Passionate Monk” etc. These all lend themselves as great qualities that support Sag’s broad and lofty aims.
Venus Rising and the New Moon
As seen in the above image, Venus in Scorpio is rising at the time the New Moon is coming in. This could be said to be a subtle aspect, however in Astrology we certainly give weight to the horizon at a persons time of birth, as in a person’s rising sign (ascendant). It’s also noteworthy when a planet meets that horizon point. So here we have the famed Venus in Scorpio. Venus in Scorpio is The Priestess and Alchemist. The Passionate, Deep Delving Transformer, The Love Goddess. The Warrioress. This is the Rising energy of this Sag New Moon. Can’t you just taste what she brings to this moment? This Sag Moon is Divine And Divinely Accompanied.
Sacred Space Goddess:
For the New Moon
Read. Pray. Explore.
Ideas and Inspiration, Bringing Balance, Beauty and Scaredness to Interiors...Because Every Goddess Deserves a Temple
During this New Moon, we may find ourselves wanting Study or just to be around books, looking at the Travel Channel and or watching Sci-Fi, Occult or Spiritual themed Movies or videos. Do our homes represent our Expandedness? Do we have relics, art and other objects from our own culture and beyond to represent the vastness of who we are as a Soul Force Being and member of the Greater Indigenous Human Family? Do you have a library or a study in your house? A quiet place to read? Sagittarius is about Expanding our Horizons and we can do that through actual travel or reading a book or blog. Sagittarius is about Solitude and Direct communication with God and or our Higher Self (Ori), so this is the time to explore your connection to Spirit. Do you have dialogue with Mother/Father God and/or your Ori? This would be a perfect time to create an alter if you don’t have one already. Your alter is a place in your home, work etc. especially designed for you to contact the Goddess within and without. Your alter is a portal and collects the energy of your prayers and affirmations. You are actually charging the space when you sit there and absolutely the things of the spirit world begin responding. You don’t have to have an alter in order to commune with Spirit, your Ori etc. but it helps to have a focal point given the various distractions of this world and having highly charged objects close by makes resonance and contact easier. Your Spiritual devotion or practice is the perfect way to Expand yourself and travel/explore within.
