This full moon in Aquarius is marked by two conjunctions: Pluto conjunct the moon as well as Chariklo conjunct the moon. Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth and transformation and its role in conjoining the moon is to combine with Luna's energy of bringing us back to our true inner self. Pluto works in powerful ways on our unconscious and subconscious for the purpose of transformation. This is kindred energy to the moon in Aquarius, as luna reminds us of our true soul purpose and Aquarius is the new age of freedom, justice, peace and harmony that we are only beginning to step into.
Combine all of that energy with another conjunction of the moon and asteroid Chariklo, the female counterpart to the wounded healer Chiron, and we have the potential for vast and powerful transformation!
While all of that sounds exciting and enticing, the key to harnessing this energy is getting comfortable with the ongoing process of death and rebirth. This is where Egyptian Goddess Wenet comes in. She is the hare goddess, hares were sacred to the Egyptians as they symbolized not only fertility, but rebirth, renewal and the ability to make quick agile adjustments during this process. Wenet was known to provide safe and loving space for should going through the process of death and rebirth. In this broadcast we meet her and invite her to wrap her loving arms around us as we endeavor to get more comfortable with our own processes of release so as to be renewed.
"Long before the festival of Ostara was “repurposed” as Easter by the early Christian church, even long before the Goddess Eostre was celebrated by our Anglo-Saxon ancestors, a different Hare Goddess was honored by some very spiritual people every coming Spring. These people were the ancient Egyptians. As for the Hare Goddess, her name was Wenet; the Swift One."
Wenet played an important role in the Egyptian pantheon as she sat next to Ibis Headed God Thoth in the Ogdoad (a group of eight gods and goddesses in perfect balance) at Khemenu. Instead of naming one of the 22 districts in Egypt after the God Thoth, the district of Khemenu was named after Wenet. Wenet was originally depicted as a hare, as a woman with a hare's head, or as a woman with a hare on top of her head. She was also associated with serpent energy and thus is depicted as a serpent with a hare's head. The combination might seem strange but it is actually quite powerful: snakes are totems of transformation, as well as death and rebirth; hares represent quick movement, fertility, rebirth & renewal.
