Warrior planet Mars just recently entered the sign of Gemini, bringing a quick pace and multi-tasking energy to our lives. As we reflect on Science/Earth Day protests and rallies that took place over the weekend around the world, this new transit reminds us of the importance of knowledge, explanations, and factual evidence as they pertain to our planet, and what keeps Mother Earth spinning on her axis amongst the stars. This will be a welcomed shift and reprieve that should keep us spinning too; the Sun, along with the planet Mercury combined, have produced a rather languid mood while in the grounding sign of Taurus. Sparks of action bring us to life as we hustle and bustle with renewed vigor. And yet, with a New Moon in the sign of the Bull this Wednesday, we will still be able to steady our efforts with focused intent and deliberation.
…thank you for allowing me to bear witness to your love during your couples’ astrology reading. Thank you for being vulnerable as I read your birth charts, and discussed the very personal aspects of your relationship. Thank you for your openness to receiving my insights, while recommitting yourselves to each other through a willingness to deepen your bond and connection. To the Cancer: You love your wife deeply. It was evident in the way you looked at her affectionately throughout our session; the way your eyes teared up when words properly conveyed the depth of your love, and the peace you found in seeing your spouse more clearly. To the Scorpio: You would do anything for your husband – anything. You love him fiercely; your pride in the man that he is let me know what to look for in my future husband.
This week, I dare you to thrive.
If there is anything that Venus Retrograde has revealed to me over these past few weeks, it is that we often must carry with us conflicting realities, to draw conclusions incorporating many disparate parts that lead to a balanced and whole perspective. Your relationship partner, for example, is not perfect. S/he will indeed be flawed, characterized by both amazing and infuriating traits and attributes. It is inevitable that you will spar. It is inevitable that you will laugh. Ultimately, if this is a relationship that you can embrace even with its hardships, you might deem your imperfect union worthy of an investment – an investment that enhances your life in some way.
