the sounds of people’s words are quiet to pisces. they feel other people’s happiness or their sadness through their body, like waves crashing through them or spindles of emotional confusion. pisces tend to value their alone time and the simple pleasures - a good book, good wine and thunderstorms

The Asteroid Goddess - Reawakening the Divine Feminine 
During the last few decades the imbalance of patriarchy has been virtually challenged in every realm, the resurgence of feminine energies is spilling through our world, dismantling every male oriented oligarchy. The 19th century arrival of the asteroids reawakened the expression feminine power and once again, allowed for the wisdom of the goddess to be available to our consciousness. The 24 Asteroid Goddesses are the main belt of asteroids and measure around 144 miles. Their wisdom revels in ancient knowledge, divination, healing, natural cycles, the intelligence of inner life and the inclusive archetype of the feminine soul.
Not until the woman’s movement of the 1970’s did astrologer’s begin to take note of these new bodies and begin to experiment with their archetypes  In 1973, the first four discoveries of asteroids -  Ceres, Juno, Vesta and Pallas Athena were all prominent in Greek myth, and their cults predated their male counterpart. Each of the four is considered a package of symbolism, a facet of what is the whole Archetypal Feminine Principle; one that is expected to restore a particular aspect of wisdom that has been missing for around 5,000 years. 
The discovery of the asteroids had weaved renewed images of the feminine through the astrological tapestry. Previously, the lineage of feminine traditions were represented by the Venus and the Moon, suggesting only two socially accepted roles for women; the lunar mother or the Venusian. With the presence of the asteroids, comes the rediscovery and cultural reclamation of feminine power, and the ancient feminine wisdom of the goddess was bought to consciousness. the awakening force that had been hidden.
The maxim ‘as above, so below’ underpins the philosophy of astrology. Inner and outer lives are woven together through investing the celestial sphere with meaning. Therefore when astronomical discoveries are made astrologers find new meaning and revelation in them. Astrological tradition suggests that with the major discovery of a planet the collective is confronted with the conscious awakening of an archetypal force that may have previously lain dormant or been repressed.
The asteroids are surrogates of the goddesses and invest life with mystery, imagination, and the sacred inner life. All women, were born into the world at a transitional time. All women, of this time have been chosen as a part of the ‘transitional team’, a time where it is believed the feminine has provided them with more energy, and more resources to build a new world paradigm. These energies don’t just redirect and define women; they redefine everyone, and such a transition is mystical, magical and enlightening.
This divine energy of wisdom is guiding us to bring something very different into the world than what we are seeing. This means, whether the women of this time signed up for it or not - they will be revolutionary; whether they are a teacher, a nurse, a writer, mother or an accountant. The divine only asks that you do not stop the things you most want to express, if you let them flow forth, your revolutionary work is done, and it is done beautifully.  The Great Goddess and has returned to reconnect us back to her culture. Investing us with  imagination, mystery, inspiring ritual and sacrifice to reconnect to the treasures of her magical forces.

astrolocherry:

Scorpios can drag themselves from the midst of the ocean’s floor, by endorsing their powers of regeneration, and engaging in their cosmic duty, assisting others along the transformation process. This is why they are living now in a crisis,  and are often being torn between two contradictory tendencies: the past and death on one hand, and the future and life on the other. During life a part of themselves will die in order to let another part be born.

This is excruciatingly true

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

astrolocherry:

pisces are full of sugary half finished sentences and loosely defined thoughts they constantly trip over. there is a mosaic, stained glass window feel to pisces. like the translucent colours of the whole zodiac rainbow, forever changing its shade to reflect the different light spilling through their aura. pisces follow the sun and cradle the moon

Moon in Pisces, fluttering ideas and beautiful vistas of coloured feeling.

astrolocherry:

when delegated no control, scorpios become anxious, unstable and oppressed. but scorpio operates on his highest octave of power, force and control when he knows the right moment to let go. when he opens his eyes in the invisible jewel of his soul; the world, his attachments and longings and previous selves melt away and this is when he knows true power. and no other sign can equal the heights of a scorpio in flight

This is me. Especially now. But also most of the time.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
