I saw yesterday morning, on my Facebook feed, that Venus and Mars are doing a little dance in the morning sky together in my neck of the woods.
On 1st September (which is our Spring Day in the Southern Hemisphere), they were apparently at an exact degree in Leo and appear as one united star.
It feels like a perfect metaphor for the union of the divine feminine and masculine.
The yin and yang energy (and the merging of the two) has felt very poignant over the past couple of weeks and seems to be culminating into a collaborative peak.
But before we get all in a tizz over this titillating sexual energy (as in the ‘universal energy’ and not necessarily just ‘sex’ — although that would be nice too, let’s face it!) — let’s have a simplified look at what these beautiful, dichotomous energies bring to the planetary table:
Sacred Feminine Traits — Looking Within:
The female (yin) vibration encapsulates the ‘being’ energy and yields:
- Unconditional Love
Divine Masculine Traits — Looking Without:
The male (yang) vibration imparts the ‘doing’ energy and brings:
- Strength (inner and outer)
- Support (emotional and physical)
Marrying the Yin/Yang — ‘I Do’
Whether you are male or female, gay or straight (or anything in between) — you can encapsulate the above-mentioned traits.
The waltz between male and female is a beautiful one and our interdependence is sacred and should not be seen as a weakness but an amazing, God-given strength.
Our ability to work together to weave a reality full of love, life and laughter is a massive blessing that we should all strive to claim.
We simply could not exist without each other.
When we can learn to embrace our characteristics and use them to better discover ourselves, each other and our world —we will step into an adventure beyond belief.
Drop all the stereotypical archetypes and societal labels and step into a world full of wonder as you redefine what being ‘man’ or ‘woman’ means to you. Now imagine all the fun you are going to have playing around with these lively energies!
