My Anam Cara Jamie validated that I was on the right path to love when she said, “Listening to your heart about a specific person, over your desire to be with a person, is a big deal.” I got that. What she meant was that oftentimes we focus on the end goal of being in a relationship, without considering whether or not the other person is worthy of our heart’s investment. There is much pressure these days to marry, find companionship, and not be alone, that questions surrounding what it means to be with another are overlooked, e.g., do I see myself building a fruitful life with this person; do I trust this person to honor and accept me as I am; do I fully accept and honor this person as they are.
Venus Retrograde has already brought a couple of surprises in love – from the split of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage, to the secret nuptials of Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux. Even Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have parted ways! No doubt, we will all be contemplating affairs of the heart – both old and new – and Jupiter’s entry in to the sign of Virgo this Tuesday will ensure that we do not gloss over any of the fine print. Remember, Jupiter tends to magnify our life experience. In the sign of the Virgin, the emphasis will be to purify our existence of the toxins that bring disorder and discontent, relationships included.
Jupiter in Virgo demands that we pay very close attention to that which feels out of sorts in our day-to-day reality, insisting that we introduce practical ways of being in this world and in relationship to others. While the process requires us to be mindful of becoming too bogged down with the details, it will still be necessary to perform regular check-ins and check-ups for the sake of healthier living and relating. Jupiter will be in the sign of Virgo through September 2016; check your horoscopes to see what’s in store for your Zodiac sign, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too!
