Friday night, the Pisces Moon moves past sextile to Pluto and the Sun and into conjunction with Chiron. Over the past few days, we’ve been solidifying our personal relationship with our own power. While this brings feelings of competence and agency, it also stirs up vulnerability. NTTAWWT.
That’s shorthand for “not that there’s anything wrong with that”, something my friends and I used to write. Vulnerability is important to growth. You have to be permeable or the growth is stunted, not as rich as it could be. Feel those watery feels. Water the seeds you’ve planted.
Saturday morning, Mercury conjoins Saturn in Capricorn – with both moving toward sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter squares Neptune. Tell yourself the truth. I was going to say “the hard truth” but all truth is hard if it’s devoid of connection. So don’t let it be devoid of connection. Tell yourself the truth and tell others the truth. Make sure that truth has love in it. Look for the love in it.
That also means looks for the love in a hard truth you’re hearing. Some people don’t know how to walk that vulnerability out into love-filled talk. But the love is there somewhere, even when the truth wounds. Look for it. That’s part of BEING loving. That doesn’t mean letting people slide when they’re being toxic. It means looking for a connection that can illuminate a road out of misunderstanding.
Venus spends another week in close trine to Mars, fire to fire. There’s love in it. There’s love in everything, and it’s visible and available now. Venus in Sadge has a sense of humor, and Mars in Aries is a crack mover and shaker – honed. Dance it out. Shout your love in your actions. Run and get what you desire. Venus in Sadge doesn’t want ties to be too close, but it does want love. It wants big love, a love that lasts, dynamic love. In trine to avid mover Aries Mars, go ahead and BE that love. Do the thing you want to do when you get that love. It attracts.
The Saturday Moon in Aries lights up that trine. It goes on to square Mercury and Saturn overnight. The course of true love (or the long trail to true love) never did run smooth. If it did, it would be BORING. Venus in Sadge cannot abide boredom! Aries Mars doesn’t stand still long enough to bore. An emotional square to Saturn-Mercury is a truth anvil thrown on the fire – a long time coming.
If only we could see what great plot advancement we’re achieving! No, as little humans we tend to point to the fire, throw up our arms, and wail. Maybe that’s a bit enjoyable too. Mercury is akin to Coyote… into each love a little plot twist must fall. ENJOY.
Sunday morning the Aries Moon trines Jupiter then goes on to square Pluto and the Sun. The mood is ripe to make headway in the plot. Find the hot, fresh path! You’ll never find it standing still, even if that’s just metaphorically standing still. Push yourself to transform in service of your own greater good. Our biggest power struggles are within. And that’s GOOD. Rise to the occasion; you can!
Real communication is built and unfolds over time. Accommodate healthy vulnerability through authenticity. Be real. Be real if you want to build something that lasts. Being real is going to rattle people sometimes. Don’t do it to rattle people, but do it in spite of the fact that it may. It’s the only way to get somewhere worth going.
What are your weekend plans?
