The Astrological Election

Venus at Home in Libra
The Moon, Venus, and Ascendant are all in amiable Libra during the elected time (along with Mercury). Venus rules the sign of Libra, so she has essential dignity here. With the Ascendant also in Libra, Venus takes command of the whole wheel, establishing peace, fairness, equality, and justice.
Aphrodite stands Rising in the First House, prioritizing pleasure, beauty, enjoyment, and love. The Sun has risen, making this a time when Venus was in her Evening Star phase. This brings more attention to our inner wisdom, receptivity, openness and fertility.
The 4 of Swords, Lord of Rest from Strife
This third part of Libra corresponds to the 4 of Swords card in the Tarot, ruled by Jupiter and Mercury. Luna was applying to conjoin Venus (ruler of the sign) and she also will make a harmonious trine with Jupiter (ruler of the decan). Both of these planets are mainly Benefic in nature, granting us peace, abundance, grace, generosity, happiness, friendship, love, guidance, knowledge, faith, and other pleasures.
Whenever we see the 4 of Swords we know it’s time to take a break. The figure reclines on a tomb within a sacred temple, seemingly taking his final rest. This card doesn’t signify death, not even metaphorically. It’s instead reminiscent of a deep sleep or state of meditation, a reminder to take the time to retreat into a quiet, secluded space and give back to ourselves. Recharge and replenish yourself with your breath. Let go of the business of the conscious world and all of its problems. Find your center.
This practice is especially important in times of turbulence, and we can achieve this state easily in a ritual bath. So turn the lights down low, light your favorite Venus and Jupiter candles, and drop this giant, pink fizzing ball of geranium and lavender into your bath.
