The Moon is in Capricorn today at 20 degrees, heading towards Last Quarter Phase. This phase of the Moon hearkens a period of ‘letting go and release’. We set our intention at New Moon, it was sealed and brought into bloom at Full Moon, and now as we wind down, we let go. In the letting go, we also trust in the universe, that ‘thy will be done’. With the Capricorn influence, we may feel a little more industrious or serious today as we warm up to the ‘Wise Elder’ in us that desires to be respected and live by integrity.
We are in interesting times, to say the least, right now. Astrologically we find Venus just coming out of ‘retrograde’ motion that began March 4th. This has caused a ‘rewind’ of sorts as we review, revisit, renew, reconsider, and reevaluate our values and relationships. As Venus started moving forward again recently, she still has not returned to her original point when the ‘retro’ began so we are not home free yet. She will not officially end this process of evaluation until May 20th. We may feel some forward motion and an easing up in relationships, but we have to incorporate what we learned these 6 weeks.
Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde until May 4th. It will not be completely out of its shadow until May 20th. We also have Saturn and Jupiter in retrograde motion. This is a period of evaluation, but not necessarily action. We are sort of in a ‘holding pattern’. Jupiter will go direct June 10th and Saturn will go direct August 26th. Of course we cannot put everything in life on hold, but we can know that right now is a good time to go within. Where we have been, what we have committed to, what our voice yearns to express, what we ultimately want in love and relationship, and how we may have underestimated ourselves. Journaling and meditation are recommended to find the nuggets of the self that yearn to be reclaimed, and expressed.
