With the Moon this weekend in Scorpio, the Sun and Venus in Cancer and Neptune is in Pisces, we have tons of water = tons of emotions.
Feelings are deep and intense and there is a powerful longing to express and expand them, yet also a sense of pressure and restriction. The recent eclipse in Cancer started an emotional process that Venus will re-activate, so any emotional or relationship issues that have come to the surface recently may get triggered and/or be asking for resolution this weekend.
Venus also sits opposite Pluto in the Grand Cross so don’t expect it to be easy. There is much pressure to transform and radically reinvent how we connect to both ourselves and others. Old habits have to go. This weekend these will be connected to our need to nurture and be nurture (Cancer).
Emotional patterns set up in childhood, where we may or may not have had those needs met, could create this under the surface tension. I suggest we all need to be extra conscious of any tendency to project past hurts onto others...we could be unconsciously allowing unmet needs to control or manipulate others, or leave us feeling victimized.
Of course it will all seem very valid and real….and it is… only the source is in us, not necessarily the other person(s). Asking for what we need may be one of these issues, which means feeling we have value and worth. Self love is the order of the day. This is powerful stuff with so much water and the emotional intensity could trigger some big issues.
The trick is to face and own our issues and do the inner work necessary to heal what is coming to the surface ….with compassion and care for self.
Mercury aligned with Saturn will bring some clarity and helps us ground and contain those emotions in a constructive way. So instead of just blurting out what is bothering us we can sit down and write in a journal or do a timeline of past patterns etc. This kind of focused process can help us get a grip on how we repeat old stuff.
Jupiter brings its expansiveness to Venus to open our hearts and show us the bigger picture.
With Neptune’s influence we become refined and attuned to spirit. Our deepest needs can be directed toward a greater love than any one individual could ever give us.
Yesterdays sharp right angle between the Moon and the Cardinal Grand Cross energy created an intense difficult day which I for one am still recovering from… so go easy with yourself and others now and let Jupiter trine Pluto bring the deep transformation we all need and crave.
These chaotic times are reminiscent of a birth. We are in the labour pains of a new era and sometimes it feels like this process will never end. Many things will pass, as a new level of human consciousness is brought into being. And what will remain is what has never changed … our true essence … which is not limited to or defined by this temporary passage thorough a temporary world.
Let Venus today reveal our deepest need. To feel and know love.
“And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips." Kahlil Gibran The Prophet
