The Shabbat before the new month of Elul: Venus sextile Mars, Cancer moon and Uranus Yod ~ Awakening of the Mother & Return to Essence
Astrological Aspects for August 2nd:
* Virgo Venus sextile Cancer Mars @ 13 – the masculine and feminine energies have temporarily harmonized and the two can work together while encouraging mutual growth
* Moon enters Cancer tonight – this Sabbath is charged with an extra dose of Shekhinah energy, the indwelling feminine presence of G-d, animating the physical world with divine vitality and love
* If you’re an early riser, catch the Moon, Merucry, Mars and Jupiter in line in the east at dawn. with all these planets in cancer, the Mother is awakening and returning!
The last verses read on the Sabbath from the Torah speak about Sukkot, hinting that the true culmination of the twin Star of David alignments is the fall equinox! Each Sabbath takes us closer and crystallizes the upgrades of the week.
This coming Monday night, the new moon marks the opening of the lunar month of Elul, the Kabbalistic equivalent of Virgo. Elul is the month of our betrothal to God which consummates on Yom Kippur (Saturday September 14th). During Elul, the King is in the field, not in the palace, now among the simple people & accessible to all. The letters Elul spell ‘I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me’ – total reciprocal love and unity wih G-d.
Elul is the month of betulah the virgin and the innate wholeness of the soul. It is the month during which we do teshuva and return to this wholeness, in preparation for complete at-one-ment on Yom Kippur. A whole month for teshuva (return to essence), the shofar is blown every morning to remind the soul of its lofty source.
A final aspect of teshuva is returning to our true essence, the unique blueprint of our soul. This is assisted by the formation of a Yod or finger of G-d pointing at Uranus in Aries which began on Wednesday night and lasts through the new moon. Uranus is pushed the North Node and Venus, all at the 12th degree of their incompatible but high-energy sign combination (Aries, Scorpio, Virgo).
Uranus is the revelation of the individuality I am through the prism of the infinite, my akashic record. The node is the unique blueprint of my soul, my current trajectory, on the basis of lifetimes past. Venus is the illumination from within the darkness, the first light of dawn.
Together these forces spawn an even deeper more pristine illumination of I am , which is intimately one with the Giver of Life. The finger of G-d is pointing at YOU.. (at Him/Herself!…shh.. 😉
Shabbat shalom & Chodesh tov..
A Sabbath of peace & a month of blessing!
May you be inscribed in the book of Life ~ and discover your Akasha
