The 7th Waning Moon Venus Conjunction occurs today at 22:10 GMT, just 21 hours before the New Moon in Aquarius on 11.02.21 at 19:06 GMT, creating a secondary, amplified gateway following the dawning of the Age of Aquarius at the Winter Solstice and Great Conjunction.
The energies of Aquarius, with its emphasis on humanitarianism and sharing our unique gifts for the greater good, are perfectly aligned when working with the Root Chakra of the 7th Gate of Descent in the Venus Cycle.
At this Gate of Manifestation, our focus is not just on our own survival, but that of our comm-unity.
After the euphoria of stepping through the Winter Solstice gateway into the new Age of Aquarius, it has felt on many levels like we have been plunged into a slow, painful labour.
Just like birthing a baby, when we feel that first contraction and experience an initial surge of excitement and adrenaline because we know our babe is finally on their way, but then quickly we are catapulted into the depths of an excruciatingly painful labour that demands we surrender COMPLETELY.
In this birthing process, we cannot resist the tides of contractions, all we can do is surrender, trust, ground and breathe.
So this Venus Moon Conjunction and New Moon feels like a gentle space between contractions, when we can rest back into the loving arms of Mother Earth, the element associated with the Root Chakra.
We can pause, take a breath, come back to ourselves, to Her, and realise that even when we are in pain, anxious or frightened as we give birth to a new version of ourselves and of the world, we are always supported and protected.
This is a time of withdrawal, to come back to Self, to who you truly are in your essence and why your Soul has contracted to be here at this time of the birthing of the New Earth.
Walk on the land if you can, ground into Her energies, come home to your roots, know thyself.
Then from that place of grounded awareness, of strength and courage that is sourced from our deep connection to Mother Earth through our Root Chakra, you will know what it is that you are here to do when the time is right.
But for now, be gentle on yourself and those around you. We are all each other’s midwives. We all need to feel loved, safe and protected. She is with you, always.
Blessed be from the 7th Gate
