As Jupiter and Saturn conflict, pulling in Venus and Mercury with them it’s a real tension between opposite choices, dynamics and people. We have to be careful not to see everything in duality: good/bad, black/white but try to establish the relationship between the opposites and see where they mix and can come together. Besides, with Venus retrograde all sorts of crazy things are giving wrong signals in relationships.
This week Venus starts slowing down, reaching a standstill next Saturday 25th in Virgo before turning backwards out of Virgo through Leo and reversing all the way through to September 6th. It could be an emotional cul-de-sac, a change of heart, a time when all the exes get in touch. Whatever walk down memory lane you are taking, remember that the heart is changing gear this Summer, people are feeling different. You are going to be pulled back into something that you need to work out.
The Cosmos is shaking us up this week – but during times like this we can transform literally everything if we’re brave enough!
The sun’s clash with penetrating Pluto on Monday is an ideal time to take the elevator right down to the basement of the psyche and see what’s lurking down there. It’s only when we bring it up to the upper floors we can transform what’s toxic.
We do have a wonderful cosmic pattern this week, especially for the water and fire signs – whilst the Full Moon in Capricorn makes things manifest. The union of Venus and Jupiter is traditionally a fortunate aspect bringing lighter times to relationships, gifting us with opportunities to move forward and in some cases quite suddenly and unexpectedly.
Early hours of Monday 15th Saturn’s arrival back to Scorpio presses the message home. The one that began in Autumn of 2012 and continued until Christmas last year … where exactly are you in relation to the deeper issues of your life? What is happening in your soul, at the core level of your being, what is your truth? The deepest level of relationship can sometimes be triggered by crisis and pain, all very Scorpionic themes no matter what your actual sign. We all have a need to understand the deeper nuances of attachment, our fears, needs, drives – what we run away from is as important as what we run towards….
The cosmos begins immediately outside our body, it permeates the atmosphere all around us and isn’t solely located as a distant phenomenon millions of miles away.
So we can engage with these cosmic forces easily, actually soak them up. This week’s positive cosmic energy is actually something we will be happy to have.
