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.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be
brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love
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.
