Phoenixes and Angels; both rise up to Heaven… A bronze cast from a wax original, standing four feet tall, my sculpture, “Golden Shakti”is photographed here against a painted detail of an abstracted wing. Rising up from the flames into a golden sky, reborn and crowned with gold, the Goddess is rising like a Phoenix. Rising up from the ashes of our own self immolation, we feel the planets collectively as Uranus in Aries, wild and willful, opposes Saturn in steady Capricorn. We feel the desire for freedom and for truth as the Feminine arises empowered refusing to be restricted and restrained. Venus, the Goddess of love and Chiron the Healer are meeting in the sign of Pisces in their yearly embrace. A wave of compassion, a rising up of the Feminine is spreading, healing pain with solace and releasing love to the world from the collective feminine heart. Angels will be rising like Phoenixes in their flames – the Year of the Fire Cock is coming, giving us the rare opportunity to rise up like a Phoenix and fly.

Persephone is still in darkness, here… in the North. Our bodies and hearts yearn for her and we pray for her emergence…Struggling to break through into the light, she is surrounded by flowers and tendrils and roots, coming alive all around her. She breathes love and fire into the black earth, incubating life with her sighs and her breath.

Aedh Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
— William Butler Yeats
The northern world is slowly and tenderly coming back to life…
my new work, new series… Primavera…
Mars in Sagittarius, trine Sun and Mercury in Aries, all so combustible. We are feeling the aftermath of the eclipse… and must hold on to our vision of love and expanded heart as we transition from our sojourn in the mystical seas of Pisces into a brave new world…
A point of balance between the worlds, day and night and spring and fall; Aries and Libra. Venus conjunct Neptune makes a lovely fog and mist that can be inspiring if we can open to its magic. The Sun enters Aries today and the Earth starts her new year cloaked in these beautiful mists. Idealism is flowing outwards with Neptune in our loving hearts and this is the perfect moment to stop. Set intentions for the next six months when we will real what we now slowly prepare to sow in the coming spring.The sacred Heart appears as a vision for our inspiration at this time. We can create this utopia in ourselves now if we can only surrender to this inspiration, and meditate, poised there like butterflies harvesting nectar. Following our own bliss, we can start gestation, birthing what we can now dream into being with Venus’s love and the wisdom and healing power of Chiron, poised parallel to Neptune. Saturn, Venus and Jupiter now form a T square that when harnessed can create powerful results with focused intent through ritual and magic Coupled with Saturn’s trine to the Aries Sun, fire signs will once again be taking focused action. Early Libra and Aries are now about to be transformed by the coming eclipse at 4 degrees Libra, opening a portal to a new world opening just around the corner as Mercury enters Aries, when we can initiate a new cycle of thought and communication with awakened mind and fresh perspective. .

An Angel appears in the heavens above us… A magical window opens between eclipses, between the new moon’s solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse at the next full moon. Opening into a new dimension, it only appears between the eclipses. They come in pairs; cycles of ending and new beginning, opening and closing doors, welcoming us to step into the next unfolding of our journey… Each eclipse is an initiation into a new cycle, a new mystery.
The Angel beckons to us…We can step through the portal into a new vibration – a new vortex of energy with its own colours and tones.The Sun, Mercury and Neptune are clustered in the sign of Pisces, the two fish. We all feel the pull of the Mystic now… Neptune rules here, in his own element and watery sign joined by Chiron, Ceres and the South Node, and will soon be joined by Venus. Pisces is the sign of her sign of exaltation… and she shines as she pours her affections down upon us like liquid love. We are feeling the concerted power of the planets now, and can receive a healing of our deepest wounds if we surrender to this rare opening. Our emotions are flowing in response to the cosmic pull as the Angel sings to us… Pisces flows with feeling and devotion and Neptune rules inspiration and music. We can feel tenderness welling up, pulling at our hearts to open the flood gates and be released like fish to swim free in a sea of boundless love… and we must listen. The sign of Pisces sings to us with a Mermaid’s irresistible voice and holds the key to all the mysteries. She breathes love, surrender and devotion. The last sign is the sign of completion; here the Angel gracefully spreads her wings to enfold us all with her tenderness… She holds the secret of the selfless heart,opening us to a higher love.
