Feeling some intensity and emotional leftovers from the lunar eclipse? The Moon in Scorpio says, “Let’s shine light on the shadows, the realities of our lives, and incorporate the good, the bad, the ugly”. Venus is typically focused on harmony, beauty and anything pleasing and soothing, especially when in the sign of Taurus- the sign motivated by simplicity and basic needs of the body. Venus does not gravitate towards what may be hard to look at, what may cause chaos, or what may ruffle feathers so as she opposes the heart aligned with truth and exposing secrets, our emotions may be seeking a way to balance beauty and subconscious realities. With Venus in Taurus, it is a good time to nurture the body, surround the self in enchanting places that soothe and reassure the body of its strength and roots. Connect with others and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. With the Moon in Scorpio, we can use energy to traverse the darkness and heal as we are grounded through Venus’ stability.
Jupiter has been spinning backwards or retrogrades since December and now the planet of good luck and expansion is going direct on April 8th. With its flowing harmony to all the planets in Aries, this is a fortuitous time to unleash the child within, the playful spirit, and the one who wants to express itself with great enthusiasm. Madonna sings “express yourself- don’t go for second best baby, put your love to the test”. As spring is in the air, this is a time to “go for it”….make those dreams come true!! But do watch getting too extravagant like the recently released “Jupiter Ascending” that is bombing at the box office. We must follow our passions but not become exorbitant and self-indulgent at risk of taking it just too far.
