Friday night, Venus in Taurus trines Jupiter in Capricorn. These are solid, earthy placements for an abundantly hopeful and values-driven craving for fortune or adventure. SHOW ME THE MONEY. How much can we want? A lot.
With both planets in earth signs, promises won’t be enough. Delivery is necessary, or at least some show of good faith. In Capricorn, that timeline should be solid and not just a hit for the moment. If not, it sours the milk.
Also Friday night, the Taurus Moon moves through a sextile to Neptune and into trine with Jupiter and Pluto. It’s not exact, but the impact is felt. It also moves into conjunction with Venus and into orb of trine to Mars. We need to dream big for the future.
Are you where you want to be? Not at home isolating or out working hard to support family, friends, and society… what I mean is – how is this working for you. This… ::gestures widely:: In addition to Venus’ transits, we have Mars in broad trine to Venus moving through the end of Capricorn. It hits 29 degrees this weekend and churns up the detritus in the wake of Saturn’s recent transit. Saturn sits slightly ahead, moving slowly through the first degree of Aquarius – the sign of broad humanity.
Believe it or not, though it seems an eternity, Mercury is not yet out of its retrograde shadow. It does emerge on Sunday. Til then, we’re still retreading our beliefs and understandings about what’s gone before. Let’s investigate some of those old dreams this weekend too. For many, these latest changes seem surreal. I ask again: Are you where you want to be? We’ve had a chance to re-evaluate, so where has that led you?
It doesn’t matter in the larger scale what your answer is. But it matters a great deal for how you come out of this time period. Don’t waste this foggy opportunity to evaluate what’s going on for you personally and where you want your response to lead. It’s a tine to listen to intuition and take in inspiration. It’s a creative turning point for divine inspiration.
Saturday night, Venus makes its exact trine to Pluto as the Venus ruled Moon trines Mars then changes sign (Gemini) to trine Saturn. Don’t fuck yourself over to grasp at comfort and go back in time to something that felt better. Do yourself a favor by genuinely evaluating what will work best for you in the long run. Whatever circumstances present themselves, you hold the power in your own decision making process, in your own actions. You will be on the hook for your actions, so make them count.
Venus will eventually trine Mars when both have changed sign: Venus to Gemini and Mars to Aquarius. Remember this – “My values drive my behavior.” I have that on a post-it on my desk. Make sure you’re clear on both – your values and your behavior. Make them both purposeful. That’s different from being productive, and frankly it’s more important.
Sunday morning’s Gemini Moon conjoins Chiron and then the Sun. It goes on to square Mercury, ruler of Gemini. With Mercury in Pisces, embrace the uncertainty of the times and let the sublime subtlety wash over and inform. Fine tune what comes in as needed, but don’t get too bent out of shape over a passing feeling. It’s just a feeling. Let it inform you and jog on. The impression that lasts will be the helpful bit.
Learn and teach. Do what you can with what you have.
What are your weekend plans… no really, I want to know. I’m playing video games and repotting my orchids. I’m watching Buffy, Good Karma Hotel, and Agatha Raisin. I can highly recommend Picard and Discovery. Also, I have every form of ice cream known to mankind.
