Coming in January 2010 there will be an important alignment between Venus and Mars which, without an understanding of their synodic cycles, we might miss altogether. This “article” attempts to provide a multi-valent image of the contributions Venus, Mars, the Sun, and the Moon make to this rather amazing story.
I’ve chosen to deliver this article in audio format because I feel it is more appropriate to the subject matter, which centers on the tantric planets. More appropriate because speaking something into being often is a more empowered delivery medium than reading words on a page.
Audio Article Summary:
We explore the meaning of the current phases of Mars and Venus, explaining how their astronomical relation to the Sun signifies a critical stage in collective development. Then we see how the Moon in her natural rhythm plays a liaison role between them. (all zodiacal positions Tropical)
