Once balance has been restored Sekhmet becomes the consort (wife) of Ptah and together they give birth to Nefertum, a healing god who predates Aesclepius. Sekhmet, Ptah and Nefertum are referred to as the Memphis trio, known for their healing abilities and maintaining the cosmic balance Sekhmet was sent to restore.
Their relationship represents the gift of co-creative, conscious, collaborative relationship. They represent the outer sacred marriage that is possible when inner wholeness is the beginning point.
This is a translation of the Inanna story from the original Sumerian Texts by Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Kramer
May the circle remain unbroken
May the Earth always be whole
May the truth always be spoken
May the Wild Woman live in my soul
I am living
I am free
Wild Woman, Wild Woman
I am thee…
On February 19, 2018 Venus rises from the Underworld as the Aries Wild Warrior Woman Meta-Goddess to begin the process of reclaiming her true self, having released all the distortions she had previously collected on her journey to the underworld.
Venus/Inanna/Aries is now a fully initiated Goddess having gone through a shamanic death that required her to die to who she believed herself to be so she could be reborn into who she truly is as the Self-Sufficient, Confident, Fierce Protector of the Cosmic Balance, committed to restoring Divine Justice where ever needed. If we have been paying attention to this journey this is true for us all.
I came across a children’s story by Gwen Gross in a book titled Knights of the Round Table when my youngest son was in third grade. He is now age 27 so this was many years ago. We both loved the story and I found it was a wonderful description of what the Aries Wild Woman wants most…actually it fits in many ways for most women but most especially the Aries Wild Woman.
Evening Star Venus stationed retrograde March 4, preparing to pass between the Earth and the Sun from our view.
With Venus completing a 19 month Leo Synodic Cycle, the Leo Meta Goddess, Sovereign Feminine, Vision Carrier Woman has fully emerged into our world, strengthened by the North Node moving into Leo in June and a Leo Total Solar Eclipse happening in August.
Thirteen days after Evening Star Leo Goddess completes her Underworld initiatory journey……
As a Shamanic Astrologer and Active Dreamer I see that life takes on greater vibrancy and congruence when lived as a “Call and Response” game. We hear Great Mystery calling to us through our dreams and visions, synchronicity and coincidence, and the movements of the Earth, Sun, Moon, Planets and Stars.
On August 22, 2015 Venus rose as Morning Star in the sign of Leo, initiating a 19 month cycle completing March 31, 2017. On a personal basis, this period calls us to strip away distortions, beliefs or comparisons that block us from experiencing our intrinsic value and worth. In other words, we are invited to cultivate that rare yet precious quality of self-love.
