Pallas Athena

2.6.21 A brilliant download with Mercury conjunct Pallas in Aquarius

Soul Bloom Art

Pallas is the goddess of divine intelligence and wisdom – she represents the root of all wisdom, and helps us to gain a higher understanding of our world, rising above our own concepts and beliefs to see a bigger picture. The asteroid Pallas is in Aquarius where she is quite comfortable, since under the influence of Aquarius the layers of multidimensional consciousness begin to open. Pallas was a name for Athena in her guise as the wise leader, and the asteroid Pallas symbolizes an innate wisdom that comes from the gods within – our higher voice of intuition.

Mercury is the planet of the mind and all matters of information processing – it operates on the mundane level to transmit data and operate machinery.  By itself it is not associated with wisdom or knowledge; rather it is the process of attaining knowledge.  But the conjunction of Mercury to Pallas which culminates on February 6th can facilitate this download of pure wisdom under the archetype of Aquarius, the bearer of wisdom from the stars to humanity.  Remember that Venus (relating) is also conjunct Saturn (restriction) on the 6th, so this is a solitary venture rather than any kind of group experience.

12.2.20 Pallas and Saturn combine for grounded wisdom today

art by Emily Balivet

The asteroid Pallas signifies Divine Wisdom and victory, and she has been traveling along with the Capricorn Trio (Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn) for much of this year suggesting that even though Capricornian restriction and the need for rebuilding the scaffolding that holds up our lives has been stressful, there has been a divine plan behind every action.  Today Pallas links up with Saturn, the King (ruler) of Capricorn, to aid in the rebuilding process.  The summer of retrogrades is behind us, and the creation process has already begun.

Today’s Moon in Cancer pulls us more deeply into the inner realms of feelings and compassion helping to integrate the inner world of what fulfills the soul with the outer world of what we have to do.  Meanwhile Pallas inspires us to see with new eyes, and works together with Saturn to find a way forward to build new structures to support us in the new world that is to come.

11.12.20 Pallas and the conjunction of Jupiter to Pluto

art by Ellen Vaman

The final phase of the Jupiter conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn hits today, and the evidence is everywhere.  Ideological (Jupiter) conflict (Pluto), the destruction and rebuilding (Pluto in Capricorn) of everything that we believe to be true (Jupiter).  The Archetypal Explorer put this chart together tracking the Covid peaks to the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto, and you can clearly see the correlation. In our personal lives Jupiter and Pluto behave rather differently – under this influence the things which give our life meaning (Jupiter) have been blown apart (Pluto) and we are left with the things that are truly important so we can build on these as we move forward.

The asteroid Pallas is tightly conjunct Jupiter and Pluto at the time of the conjunction, shining a light of wisdom and of reason. This is a grace card to help us to use this divine knowledge of Pallas in order to rise above dangerous reactions that could create unforeseen and undesired effects, especially with the Moon in Libra today aligned with Venus to soften any hard edges and encourage harmony.  There are new paradigms now to build upon in order to bring new and perhaps more genuine meaning into our lives. ❤️

Astrological update for the week of November 9, 2020: Scorpio New SuperMoon, Mars direct, and lots lots more

There’s so much to talk about this week, and the video went a bit longer than usual.  I’m using timecodes now so you can go right to the parts that interest you, and it also makes it easier to go back to things you want to listen to a second or third time.  The Moon is New in Scorpio this week, and it’s a SuperMoon (I’ll be writing a blog article about that too a little later in the week).  Mars turns direct this week.  Mercury goes back into Scorpio. And it’s the final phase of Jupiter conjunct Pluto, and Pallas is in there too so I have a little blurb about her as well.  Transcript follows, but give the video a try. I’m curious, who is still reading the transcript and who has switched over to watching the video?

Transcript (roughly edited, please forgive errors I have missed!)

Hey everybody, it’s Lynn Hayes. Welcome back to my channel. If you’re new here, I appreciate your joining me. I seem to have a lot to say today. And that’s without talking about the election at all. I want to go ahead and get started. I am going to leave some time codes in the description box so if you don’t want to wade through all of the information, you can find what it is that you’re looking for easily. I’ll probably be talking more about the election in the next couple of weeks once things settle down a little bit more.

It should be no surprise to anybody following the astrology that there […]

The Mercury/Pallas conjunction of 2019

Mercury and Pallas are very different planetary bodies, and they differ in their astrological significance as well.  Mercury is a planet after all, and Pallas an asteroid.  Mercury’s orbit is quite short, just 88 days, where the orbit of Pallas is 1686 days.  In the astrological pantheon, planets are given primary importance with asteroids relegated to a minor role – they add details and color to the basic energies that the planets describe.

But Mercury and Pallas share an affinity for the mental realm – they both are concerned with learning and understanding.  Mercury is the messenger god, and astrologically Mercury symbolizes the mind, mental function, the desire to learn and communicate, travel short distances, and run equipment.  Pallas (Athena) was born out of the head of Zeus, and symbolizes the kind of divine intelligence which is not dependent upon the limited mind or what can be learned.

Both Mercury and Pallas are androgynous in nature.  Mercury is a shapeshifter and is able to move smoothly between worlds; in his mythology he was the only god who was allowed to travel into the underworld of Pluto’s realm.  Pallas, though female, was born of no woman or man – she sprang fully formed out of the head of the king of the gods – his own creation, as it were.  I have observed that individuals who perceive themselves as transgendered often have a prominent Pallas in their charts. In mythology, Athena is sometimes called Pallas which means “young woman” – she was the “young woman of Athens. Athena had many different roles including that of Athena Nike, the victor, but it’s as Pallas that she expresses creative wisdom rather than warfare.

Mercury and Pallas will be traveling […]
