Venus retrograde in Gemini heads back into sextile with Chiron in Aries. We’ve got another (more than one) shot at bringing integrity to our relationships, value to our relationship with people-money-things… integrity to our values, valuing integrity. How’s your relationship with your values these days?
Who are you? Are you actions in accordance with your desires for an ideal world? Is that changing, either your values or your beliefs? It’s not merely one transit that marks this period of change and flux.
The Sun and Venus are in Gemini which is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is ahead in Cancer, ruled by the Moon. Communications, the mind, the intellect, the senses are all influenced by the heart, feelings, home, nurture. We are thinking at a gut level, but we also have access to a collective wisdom that draws us back into flow. Into flow with values, with love, with purpose. Emotion is a path to (possibly psychic levels of) understanding.
Mercury moves into trine with Mars, both in water. In flow we access right action. Mars moves to conjoin Neptune: divine movement.
Monday the Sun squares Mars. Wednesday the Sun squares Neptune. Not all violence is destructive. Sometimes it’s the quickest path to necessary change. Not all violence is physical. Nature is violent. All movement is violent in some context. What is consistent here is the lack of clarity in intent.
With Mercury in Moon-ruled Cancer, our attitudes take on the flavor of the day and the Moon. The gut connects to the personal and collective mind.
Monday the Moon finishes in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, conjoining Pluto and Jupiter. It goes on to Aquarius, into and over Saturn. We feel the gravity, but with movement we acquire meaning that translates to universality.
Tuesday’s Aquarius Moon sextiles Chiron and squares Aquarius-ruler Uranus. Revolutionary or humanitarian mood is a backdrop for an opportunity for growth at odds with the status quo. But that growth will facilitate future stability.
The Moon forms a grand trine with Juno and Venus. Value and benefit may be intangible or theoretical now, but ideas come first.
Wednesday, we finish up the Aquarius Moon run with a trine to the Sun as Venus makes its exact sextile to Chiron. In the midst of chaos, be authentic to your values and intrinsic merit.
Thursday the Moon hits Pisces and emotional clarity dissolves. Pisces lack of clarity can be freeing. It’s a time when we can grasp at a gut level that we do not have to understand everything in any given moment. It’s permissible to be on the way to find out. It’s possible to let it flow in, to empty the cup and let it fill again. Be a mindful seeker, a humber actor.
The Moon sextiles Uranus with Chiron sandwiched between. The Moon squares Venus. There exists a level where we cannot hold what we want and what we need in the same hand and be true to our own growth and change. But we can hold one in each hand and will the differences to blend.
Friday’s Pisces Moon trines Mercury. It moves over Mars and Neptune to square the Sun. What brings us to flow, mind to mood – mood to mind, what nurtures our understanding and feels like divine connection… instigates change between the eclipses. Move with what moves you.
