Venus has been prevalent in the skies over the last couple of months. It began with Venus retrograde in Leo (the end of July – early September) and continued on with Mercury retrograde (mid-September – early October) in Venus ruled Libra. Then Venus entered Virgo, changing up the pace and allowing us to move beyond the ties to the retrogrades. Shortly after, we experienced the Libra New Moon (second week of October) which likely continued to place emphasis on our relationships. Over the hump of the retrogrades, the Libra new moon signified new beginnings and ways of being, and a greater sense of emotional balance.
Soon, we are to experience a different more earthy side of Venus, as the Sun and Moon make their monthly opposition, giving way to the Taurus full moon, on October 27.
The chart for the Taurus full moon casts its glow, again, on the relationship angle of the chart, with the Moon in the 7th house and the Scorpio Sun in the 1st house. The comfortable Taurus full moon has a calm, safe energy. It is likely the instability and craziness that has been stirring over the past few months has led us to more sturdy ground. For a while, we may have found ourselves in a state of limbo, unpredictability or dissatisfaction. Addressing these issues has not been easy, but we are finally on the other side. The Sun in the 1st house reminds us of the importance of focusing on our own personal self-development, outside of our relationships. By pushing ourselves and intentionally striving and aiming to be the “best” version of ourselves we can be and by living our lives honestly, in a way that resonates with our souls, we will ultimately find a greater sense of peace and comfort from our friends, family, lovers and world. Additionally, we will find ourselves able to participate more healthily in these relationships, giving and receiving love from a more pure, non-judgmental heart space. Integrity goes a long way.
Pluto in Capricorn in the 4th house making a trine to the Moon, Venus, Mars and Jupiter suggests that we are feeling more confident in our ways. The “scary” part is over. We feel the necessity of change. The light at the end of the tunnel is within reach. The rigidness of life becomes more fluid. However, we must remain practical and diligent about sticking to our goals. Appreciate the relief for now, but know that the stress of life is just around the corner serving to keep us on our toes and in a state of constant evolution.
Chiron in exact opposition to Venus, suggests the possibility of work related issues. As well as the likelihood that we will find ourselves called upon to be of service, in such a way that we are able to put our recently revised values/way of being, into action.
With the series of conjunctions taking place between Venus, Jupiter and Mars in Virgo, we have the tools to make big things happen. Have faith, keep at it – trust in yourself. There is pressure to work hard and to live up to the responsibilities we have accepted and invited into our lives – but hard work often leads to results. The energies are here for us to play with. Manifest.
Saturn in Sagittarius in the 2nd house approaching a square to Neptune in Pisces in the 5th, reminds us that accomplishing any goal takes time, effort, practice and commitment, but it also takes vision, creativity and heart. With Neptune making a trine to the Sun, we are gifted. We feel our deepest creativity, dreams and desires project themselves into our reality. Anything is possible, you just have to want it and be willing to work for it.
