Yesterday was a BIG, HISTORIC DAY for Love…
You no doubt know the U.S. Supreme Court voted that the right to marry is constitutional for all citizens no matter their sexual orientation, thereby legalizing same-sex marriage in all fifty states.
When something like this happens, the astrologer in me can’t help but ask, “What was it in the stars that helped that to happen?”
I wrote just last week that this is a very special time… the two best planets for higher consciousness and love (Jupiter and Venus) are together in the sky in the sign of Cancer.
(This is according to the calculations of Vedic astrology, which differ from those of Western astrology by almost an entire sign. This gorgeous combo began May 30th and lasts until July 4th, and starts up again in the sign of Leo from mid-July to mid-August, which will also be just STELLAR…).
Jupiter expands, uplifts, and heals anything it influences – and does so all the more in the sign of Cancer, it’s very favorite sign.
Jupiter is the planet associated with the law and legal system (and truth and justice) and Venus is “in charge” of love, sex, and romance.
Jupiter is considered the planet of husbands… and Venus is considered the planet of wives.
And when this momentous occasion occurred yesterday, Venus and Jupiter weren’t just in the same sign, they were almost exactly conjunct (joined) by being just the teensiest bit apart.
Yup – they literally got on top of one another in the sign of home, hearth, and family, no less! (This new law will impact not only gays, but of course families and children, as well… extending property rights, benefits, and greater legitimacy to them. Yay!)
The degree they are both still hovering around happens to be in a smaller “sub-sign” of Cancer called “Ashlesha.” (This is one of the original 27 signs of Vedic astrology).
As soon as I heard the news, I KNEW Venus and Jupiter MUST be in Ashlesha, because this is one of the most untraditional, “buck the system,” and “break the rules if they’re not fair or of the highest” constellations of the 27 Vedic signs – the only one in Cancer.
The announcement was made in the morning, and at the time the Moon (the astrological indicator of the public) was in the sign of partnership (Libra) in a smaller constellation of stars in a Vedic sign ALSO all about breaking the rules, known as “Chitra” which means “the Star of Opportunity.” (People – I say it all the time! I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried!).
Of course, not everyone is happy with this decision. It is the reversal of a previous decision of the court, after all. And it does go contrary to many people’s religious beliefs, as well.
If you look at the chart of the U.S., this makes sense. This Venus/Jupiter combo in Cancer falls into the 8th house of the chart – the house of scandals and upheavals, and reversals! (And the house of sex, interestingly enough).
This is also obvious by looking at the Sun, the indicator of the government, being in the “we’re changing with the wind because we see all sides of the situation” sign of Gemini… and a smaller constellation called “Ardra” which always brings turbulence, drama, and storms (and is symbolized by a tear drop), and is “ruled” by Rahu, a mathematically calculated eclipse point also known as “the North node of the Moon” known for making things be unusual and unconventional.
So this hard-fought freedom and gift of opportunity now available to every American is still going to be denied in the hearts and minds of some among us.
But that is just the play of life, and part of the drama of being a human among humans.
Jupiter and Venus made sure that love won…
Let freedom ring!
Speaking of love winning… Thursday night’s installment of “Love Is In The Stars Radio” with Narcissistic Abuse expert, Melanie Tonia Evans, was pretty darn amazing…
Thanks to everyone who joined us, chimed in, and posted awesome comments and questions.
These were a few of my favorites…
“Bravo, sister! Best interview you have ever done. Even with the sound glitches the secret is out! I could feel the shock waves rippling through your audience as you expertly guided Melanie to slice through to the core of this issue.
So true that she is an angel of light in the dark world of abuse and remember so are you for introducing her to North America!
Her message is so supportive to your work & passion that all of us deserve ah-maz-zing love.
Thank you for sharing your personal connection to this issue. It really, really supported Melanie in clarifying NPD for the audience. I can see lightbulbs going off in the minds of women & men right now!
“The call with Melanie was AWESOME. Thank you!!!”
“Hey Carol, that seminar with Melanie was perfect.”
I was so moved and touched by so many of you sharing painful, devastating experiences of being lied to, cheated on, and utterly used and abused by partners and past loves.
And by how many of you feel that your parents and other important loved ones and people in your life (like siblings, and bosses) have this devastating personality disorder.
It ended up being an extremely spiritual conversation, which I didn’t realize it would be.
Melanie feels going straight to SOURCE is the most powerful (and perhaps only) way to heal from and avoid abusive partners forever, and her methods can help you do that.
(At the beginning there are some minor sound and technology glitches, but they clear up quickly and we really get on a roll…)
And Melanie’s program and online community of support that has been so impactful for so many in recovering from the devastation of a narcissistic relationship, and can help you to heal the underlying subconscious beliefs and wounds that attracted you to that person in the first place (so you don’t ever pick someone like that again!) is here.
We discussed having Melanie back soon to do another call, and she later shared with me that she has her own upcoming webinar that she’s leading soon, so I highly suggest you join her for that! It’s here.
As for me, this weekend I’m going to thank my lucky stars that my husband is not a narcissist (even though our Jack Russell Terrier is), and bask in the glow of Jupiter and Venus’ celestial embrace.
May God and His planets and stars shower you with love!
