The Full Moon fever has created a cloud of illusion that slowly dissipates this week as people get back down to earth, return to work and thinking about business as usual. Venus will also turn around like a goddess who’s back has been turned all Summer so we see her face again and recognise what is really going on in relationships.
MY SITE WILL BE UPDATED ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH as I’m going to get the scoop on New York. Follow me on Scorpiodebbie……
So Sun and Jupiter join in holy matrimony this week in the puritan sign of Virgo – quite a contradiction as Virgo is so uptight and proper, whilst Jupiter is the let it all hang out planet. What does living better mean to you – is it Virgo wheatgrass or Jupiter’s red carpet? On top of it this as we approach the Full Moon in ethereal Pisces close to Neptune, planet of illusion, we could all be off on one this weekend.
As Saturn has been stuck at 28 degrees of Scorpio since early July we have been dealing with a relentless force, a constant push towards dealing with what is unconscious, deep and dark. At the same time the Leo energy has produced bright glimmers of hope, yet on Friday as the Sun in Leo clashes with Saturn we are being put to the test. Is there a limit to what we are prepared to put up with? Can we break free from old ties and karma? We are looking at boundaries, reality and where our ego (Leo) has been put through its paces by the demands of Saturn that strip us bare, expose us to the truth and ultimately bringing us to a place of deep inner knowing, transcendence and transformation. It is a crisis of consciousness, we need to face all the most difficult truths…. in the mix are the desires that control us, the fears that manipulate us. Only by looking at them can we change how we deal with them.
The departure of Jupiter from Leo where it’s been for the last 13 months has been a big ego time! Now as this planet moves to the more service oriented Virgo we’re looking at a new 12 month period of health and efficiency. Yup, that’s true for everyone, no matter what sign you are.
A little squeak of Prima Donna still comes in with the Leo New Moon close to Venus on Friday – yes, let’s hear it for love.
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.
