We had Venus conjunct Haumea last week. You may have noticed that the sunsets were richer, or the outdoor location you visited, or art event you attended, more magical, this s Haumea infusing Venus's beauty with the spirit of life.
I see Haumea as the higher octave of Neptune, which is the higher octave of Venus, so this is the lower and higher octaves coming together to start a new cycle of realising our personal values out of the psychic unity of humanity across time and space.
So we will be involved with psychic reevaluation at the start of this cycle, and the more we can let the energy come through us, rather than be ego centred in our 'use' of the energy, the better the start of this new cycle will be.
Neptune is the octave sitting between Haumea and Venus and we know that Neptune relates to visions and spiritual insight at the top level, and to confusion and illusion at the unconscious level. So the more spiritually attuned we can be in our psychic re-evaluations this week the better.
In my last post I looked at how Haumea manifests in our personal lives by looking at the natal sign placement. If you missed it you can find it here. And this week I'm going to suggest that at the top level she manifests as a psychic connection in the area of life associated with her house placement. Here is a 9th House case study to illustrate this.
Hero with a Thousand Faces
Higher Octave Case Study - Haumea, Neptune, Venus
If these three planets are higher octaves we would expect to see them singing in harmony at key times in our lives, so here is a quick case study of Joseph Campbell, author of Hero with a Thousand Faces, a book which talks of the psychic unity in myth across all cultures.
Natally he has a close conjunction of Haumea and Neptune in the 9th House, so the two upper octaves are conjunct in the house of belief and in a wide trine to his Venus in the 5th house of creativity - meaning his psychic connection to belief flowed with his values and creativity - so the three octaves are actively aligned in his chart.
On the day of publication the transiting North Node in his 7th house was closely sextile his natal Haumea and Neptune conjunction, showing he was fulfilling his destiny through his psychic re-envisioning. This was reinforced by Neptune transiting through his 12th house closely bi-quintile his Venus in the 5th, an evolutionary flow predicting the visionary effect the book would have on the collective unconscious.
He has a close Sun, Mercury, Jupiter conjunction in the 6th house of service and on that day Haumea was transiting through his 10th house in a challenging close sesquiquadrate with his conjunction and closely sextile his ASC. Transits from Haumea ask us to play our part in the psychic oneness across time and space and this demand, coming from his professional work, was answered by the book.
In addition to this challenge, transiting Haumea was also in a close trine with his Ceres in the third house, nurturing his ideas and communication, and trine his Mars in the 7th house, within 1 degree, infusing his one-to-one interactions with the spirit to make them work.
So I suggest that he did have a psychic connection in the house of belief, which is what enabled him to see the oneness of myths across time and culture. And we can see that his transits challenged and enabled this research.
If you'd like to study what Haumea is doing in your chart - by house placement, aspects and transits - I have a new course Haumea 101 starting next month.
