We are still within the bounds of the magical moment of Venus retrograde, a time where many of us may be experiencing a restructuring of our inherent values and relationships (as well as potential serendipitous meetings with “familiar” individuals). The deeply inward process of inner reorientation is likely to begin shifting outward, as Venus has emerged from the heart of the Sun. Venus now rises each morning, announcing the ascension of the Sun and return of the light from the underworld. What was entirely unconscious, the internal shifting within ourselves is now becoming conscious and manifesting itself within our lives and in the external world. What do you value now? It is likely quite different than it was before. How has your attitude toward your relationships shifted? With this newfound sense of self and a new set of values, you can create something beautiful.
Venus turns stationary direct on the rather mystical, creative, and visionary opposition of Jupiter and Neptune. just several days after she conjoins Mars in Leo—a rather “sexy” conjunction, facilitating the return and assimilation of a past desire or creative impulse that was left unfulfilled. Venus and Mars conjoin on . A longing to merge with a past craving may manifest for you. As we are in the outward, directed phase of the Venus retrograde cycle, we are bringing the internal longing outward into the world in some way, experiencing it directly within the conscious life narrative. This month’s Full Moon occurs in the sign of Pisces, and it lies in the crosshairs of
The Full Moon itself conjoins Neptune, ruler of Pisces. In this amorphous and formless sign, the Full Moon illuminates and brings to light and culmination an intangible dream or vision. You may find yourself surrendering your will to some higher cosmic intention alongside this Full Moon. Neptune humbles us. It reminds us that our vision is not entirely our own and that we are simply the conduit for that which is completely beyond our comprehension in human form. Ultimately, we are a tool through which the universe expresses itself into the greater collective. Honor your desire to reflect and seek communion with the divine during this Full Moon. This is a time to allow yourself to merge with a higher purpose and sense of connectivity with the larger human community. Meditation or any spiritual practice will be welcome at this time, or any experience that facilitates the sense of being and observing consciousness itself.
Jupiter, on the other end of the conjunction, conjoins the Sun in Virgo. Jupiter opens opportunities for the practical application of these amorphous and visionary impulses—to make them useful to others in some way and to help sharpen or hone your skills to be of service to the community. What do you need to chisel away and refine now? What abstract and intangible thing can you distil to make more communicable to the conscious world? This Full Moon is a cleansing and integrating influence, and if you can harness this energy positively, you can bridge two worlds that never quite seem to understand each other. If we respond differently, we may find that we are overextending ourselves or jumping off a precipice without really thinking it through. Engage with your life consciously now—really get in there and attempt to make some connections. Sometimes we need a moment to retreat and check out, but escapism and avoidance of reality may not be the best route.
