Who said there are no second chances? Venus is giving us all another experience of what 30 Pisces is all about! As with the Solar article, right now it's extremely important to get as clear as you can about what you want to see made manifest in the next phase of your life that's approaching like an express train!
As you know from the article on the Sun being at the 30th degree of Pisces, it's the end of the zodiacal cycle closing the 360 phases of experience. To recap something written a few days ago, Rudhyar says it's where we visualize the ideal we would become, and over time we will see that ideal made manifest in our lives.
In his "Astrological Mandala" he notes that this is related to our self-transformational ability that we cultivate through pouring our feelings and will into a visualized "mental image" aka "thought form." This projects that energy pattern into time as a "formula" for future developments on the mental, emotional, and physical levels of existence. You'll find more via the link to the Solar article at the bottom of this one.
Venus is now at the end of the end of the zodiac and on this degree. That makes the time from now (1 am PDT, 8 am Greenwich March 21) until Venus enters Aries at 8:15 pm PDT, 11:15 pm EDT March 21 (3:15 am Greenwich March 22) extremely powerful. We now have an ability to focus Venusian energy to “value” or “capture a pleasing form” of the illuminated “Law” that we created as a thought form for the future when the Sun transited 30 Pisces in the 24 hours before 4:02 am PDT, 11:02 am Greenwich on March 20.
This is the third recent transit of this degree. Mars was there March 10-12, the Sun has just been there, and now Venus is there. We’ll finish this series when Mercury transits this degree on April 13. In that case, with Mercury finishing the set, we should be able to get ideas, perceptions, signs, signals, and understanding about what we’ve set into motion before then.
As I noted in previous articles, this degree has been a point of significance in previous years due to celestial events by Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus. The initial long term activation of this degree was when Venus and Mars conjuncted at 30 Pisces in April 2009. That was the degree where Venus went stationary direct as well. You can read more about how those endings and beginnings have infused our lives since then by revisiting Archetypes - The End of the End and Beginning of the Beginning Affecting Us All in April, May, and June 2009
That Venus-Mars fusion energy was activated in extraordinary ways by the long term dance Jupiter and Uranus did beginning May 2010. Uranus occupied 30 Pisces in May 2010, and Jupiter was on this degree from May 30 through June 6, 2010. This was the "awakening and expansion of the dream."
Then Uranus retrograded back across 30 Pisces between mid-August and mid-September 2010. Jupiter retrograded across 30 Pisces from September 9-16. This revolutionized the dream, followed by a new look at the truth of the dream.
Jupiter again traversed 30 Pisces between January 16 and 22 2011. This final Jupiterian promise, protection, reward, opening, or greater Way opening was further electrified by Uranus when it made its final pass across 30 Pisces between February 21 and March 12, 2011. March 9th 2011 was especially important, since Mercury conjuncted Uranus at 30 Pisces, giving a final "Guide of Souls" coordination to the dream being individualized by Uranus. This was then vitalized by the Sun on March 19-20, activated by Mars March 31 through April 2, and mirrored into a self-reflective reality by Venus April 20-21.
This was the last time that we got the Sun, Venus, and Mars all transiting 30 Pisces in a short period of time. So some of what we’re living now was set into motion by the dreaming we did between April 2009 and April 2011. This has now been renewed by the next pass of Mars that re-energized those pulses while adding a new layer of more up-to-date dreams. The Sun has now vitalized those combined dreams, and Venus is now available to add to our appreciation and concretization of those combined dreams.
So go Venusian, and on this March 21st renew the dream, appreciate the dream, and enjoy the dream you’ve seen come into manifestation these past 4 years, and enjoy adding to that dream so you may enjoy the years to come. It’s another “end of the end and the beginning of the beginning” in the Venus ruled areas of your life!
