Venus in the Underworld - Preparing for a New Cycle of the Divine Feminine

Venus in the Underworld - Preparing for a New Cycle of the Divine Feminine | 'THE ARTS' | Scoop.it

"Venus is in the Underworld – traveling so close to the Sun that she’s invisible to us Earthlings. The feminine in all of us is deeply submerged, there’s a contraction of energy, a pulling inward, a need to be alone, to be quiet, to regenerate. If Taurus and/or Libra is strong in your birth chart, you may be feeling especially hermity and Underworldish.

 

After shining as a bright evening star, Venus disappeared from the Western horizon on January 5, and is now preparing for her rise as a morning star, and the start of a new cycle of the Divine Feminine, on January 17. Adam Gainsburg calls this current period the “Transmigrational Underworld” – when she’s closing out one cycle and preparing to start the next:"

How to make hard choices

How to make hard choices | 'THE ARTS' | Scoop.it
Here's a talk that could literally change your life. Which career should I pursue? Should I break up -- or get married?! Where should I live? Big decisions like these can be agonizingly difficult. But that's because we think about them the wrong way, says philosopher Ruth Chang. She offers a powerful new framework for shaping who we truly are.

Recently-Discovered Wasp Species Named For Harry Potter Creature | I Fucking Love Science | 'THE ARTS' | Scoop.it
If you are familiar with the Harry Potter series, you probably remember the dementors: dark, ghost-like beings that suck every positive feeling away leaving nothing but an empty shell. These awful creatures have now made the transition from fantasy to scientific literature, as they are now the namesake of a newly discovered species of cockroach wasp. The name Ampulex dementor  was chosen through public voting and has been described by Stefanie Krause and her team at the Natural History Museum in Berlin.

Seduction, Witches & Long Hair.

Seduction, Witches & Long Hair. | 'THE ARTS' | Scoop.it

"Witches stand in opposition to puritanical fears that encourage the repression of our natural sexuality, representing rebellion, and freedom. 

The witch is a woman who is empowered in the harmonic convergence

of her own erotic and spiritual energies. Who wouldn’t be drawn to her? "

 

It happened to me once, in a little Indian village bordering Bangladesh and tucked into the foothills of the Himalayas. Sneaking past armed guards into wilderness forbidden to tourists, I left modernity behind and entered into a remote part of our planet where backward superstitions ruled.

 

How dare I subject myself to such danger? The locals scolded. But they didn’t alert me to the danger of neighboring tribes descending from the hills to hack us with machetes, as the ministry of tourism had. Instead, the village women were trying to protect me from being falsely accused of witchcraft!

MacArthur Foundation “How Housing Matters” (pdf) study reveals that while black men face alarmingly high incarceration rates, black women are disproportionately evicted from their homes.


According to the study, in any given year, approximately 16,000 adults and children are evicted in Milwaukee from approximately 6,000 housing units—that equates to 16 households evicted every day.
