”The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.”
-The Bible, King James Version, Song of Songs 7:12–13
The upcoming trine between Venus and Pluto will be exact right after the New Moon in Cancer on June 24th. This aspect conjures up the rich scent of the earth exuding from freshly pulled roots. The hands are dirty and have been working hard.
On a table laying in broad day light is a collection of various treasures dug out of the ground; buried objects carrying with them long forgotten stories. To keep or to discard?
Destruction and beauty are an odd pair.
Craving more ease, you might get excited at the sight of the decaying past – hypnotized by the promises and possibilities of new beginnings. Suddenly the forbidden becomes alluring; desiring something that is denied to you. Can it be yours?
Be warned that the price is steeped but it’s already too late.
What was unearthed is taking hold.
The distant lure of beauty animates you and you keep digging in the hopes of finding more.
The process is difficult but you cannot back down. You know how important this is for your well-being. Feeling good might even sting a little but you keep digging. The sight of beauty hurts your eyes. Your heart is pounding in your chest.
Don’t stop now.
Tectonic shifts are happening.
Your heart wants more, aching for new intensity.
Renovations are well underway and you must get rid of some things to make space for what you have discovered.
Introducing more beauty, more love, more pleasure is an arduous task and things will need to be destroyed.
Be willing to leave the comfort of your garden and trade-in all of your jewels for that gut feeling.

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi
