Did you see them last night–the crescent Moon’s knowing smile next to Venus’ radiant eye? The Venus/Moon conjunction is a high holy moment of the Divine Feminine, arriving each month (but not always visible). Last night’s pairing was one of the most seductive I’ve seen, and it brought special gifts! My mother (MOON) surprised me with several treasures from her jewelry box (VENUS): two necklaces, one amber, the other an antique chinese gambling chip with diamonds, gold elephants with blue sapphires and amber moon earrings. I love how many ways the sky writes itself into our lives. Yet it’s all too easy to overlook the signs. To become a deep sky reader, we must be willing to see its resonance everywhere, in big gestures and small corners. How did Venus/Moon visit you?
