The Virgo Moon is Void all day, so if details seem to elude you, or you can't seem to focus that well, let it be what it is. We all need extra grounding as there is a sense that you can't really go fast today. Let the receptive, allowing side came front and center. Everything is slowing down on purpose.
Venus and Saturn harmonize for this whole day in a fire trine. This is great for inspiring firm foundations, commitments and responsibility in our relationships. It’s an opportunity to see what means the most to us, where we can harmonize our values with creating greater security and stability in all our relationships. Venus is very active this week as she connects to Saturn, Pluto, The North Node, Uranus, Eris and Chiron. That speaks to major changes… endings and beginnings showing up in relationships, finances, self-worth and self-esteem. Stay open to following what the heart says today… it will not steer you wrong.
Pluto’s station early this morning (17 Capricorn) feels massive, deep and still. He will only move one degree by the 1st week of June. He will station to go direct on September 26 at 14 Capricorn - so in 6 months he will have moved only 3 degrees. When a planet sits at the degree it stationed and goes retrograde, that frequency at the turn is concentrated and enlarged. This speaks to very deep changes as Pluto is the planet of transformation… death and rebirth, metamorphosis. Pluto is in Capricorn and so much that has been hidden about current governments, political systems, corporations and institutions will be churned up and revealed. All that goes on in our outer world reflects the shifts or our inner, so the collective is being epically turned as are we.
I hear that many of us are sick of the ‘transformation’ themes that are so rampant these days. I totally understand and yet I know it’s what has to happen for our world to change… it’s best to go with it, resistance = ouch!
Mars and Pluto traditionally are the planets that represent war, taking action, power, domination and destruction, the kind that rattles the ground under our feet. Lots of Earth shifts, weather changes and eruptions.
The higher vibe of these two retrograding together is the capacity to hear more clearly, the dance between the higher will and the lower will. Trying clamp down on areas where we feel out of control will only exacerbate our symptoms. Exploring and excavating our shadow side will be the best use of this energy, while steering clear of imbalanced power dances.
Where do we give our power away?
Where do we try to rule over others?
