the HEavenly Fire of Xolotl
Venus Becomes Evening Star ~ The Heavenly Fire of Xolotl
Folks who live in my region all experienced the incoming roar of Xolotl last night! We had an intense storm front move through, with torrential rains, and thunder that shook the ground and extreme lightning flashes.
In Aztec mythology, Xolotl was a god of fire and lightning, commonly depicted as a dog-headed man and was known as a soul-guide for the dead. Xolotl is the canine brother and twin of Quetzalcoatl, the pair being sons of the virgin Chimalma. He is the dark personification of Venus, the evening star, and was associated with heavenly fire.
Xolotl is sometimes depicted carrying a torch in the surviving Maya codices, which reference the Maya tradition that the dog brought fire to mankind. He is the lightning beast, who darts from heaven with a torch in his hand and represents the lightning which descends from the thundercloud, the flash. Xolotl was in charge of escorting celestial beings (the Sun, the planet Venus) to the underworld and back, keeping them safe during the journey.
Xolotl came roaring in last night to remind us that Venus is in her deepest descent into the underworld this week. Planet Venus is Conjuncting our Sun on October 22, 2022. Thanks for the vivid reminder mother nature! Round and round we go, diving DEEP now. This upcoming week has so many astronomical events and celestial gateways – from this Venus conjunction to the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse.
We are 4 days before this conjunction now, and we can mark the descent and the emergence with an 8 day gateway.
The next 8 days offer you a “death and rebirth” window for your own inner transformation. Devote the rest of your week to releasing the old, the heavy, the inner burdens. Recognize your old ways of being and habitual patters. Let die the draining self-talk and unwanted thoughts. During this window, things will be bubbling up to the surface. We are heavy into this energy already, so this process has been ongoing all September and October. Know that we are at the nadir of that cycle, and the deep releases are available for you to access.
A Venus decent cycle alone is a process of deep diving and inner transformation. We are taking it up a notch this week, as the Venus underworld transformation is being punctuated by a New Moon Solar Eclipse. Talk about a deep dive!
If you are feeling it, know you are in good company, we are all deeply under this influence now. Know to that the universe is conspiring for your greatness. These opportunities are available for you to clear out the old. To pass through the filter of the decent and to emerge in new light, as a new you.
Today I am synthesizing my community offerings around our intense week we have coming up, with Venus Conjuncting the Sun on October 22 and the Eclipse (partial solar) just a few days later on October 25.
The last time Venus conjuncted the sun was January 8, 2022. That conjunction transitioned Venus to a morning star. And she has been shining brightly all spring and summer in the predawn skies. This week Venus turn the corner on this cycle, and remains invisible to us until late November, when the planet emerges from the solar glare and once again shines in our evening sky.
We will be offering a series of articles and videos and Inner Space Journeys to assist you as you flow into the deep waters of this transformative water fire. We will culminate with a group Journey on October 26. There is so much to ponder with this transformation…I chose to break it into smaller shares, once for each of the next eight days, to offer it “bit by bit” so you can digest it as we go. This is share # 1. Look for the series over the next week.
