venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde jupiter in capricorn at 4:14pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld! venus/pluto brings us into the depths and takes us through massive transformation by way of endings, loss, death and/or facing our deepest fears and obsessions around Love and partnership. facing our jealousy, possessiveness, anger, rage and need to be in control is key. equally so facing our fear of the depths, our tendency to stay light and non-committal, and our desire to move on quickly before things get deep and penetrate our soul. facing any shadows that arises in regards to the depths or the surface is key today. from today through friday venus will trigger the jupiter/pluto conjunction and the pluto/eris square. pay attention to what is being revealed in Love, money, relationship, your values and self-worth right now <3
wednesday july 8th-
uranus in taurus quincunxes juno in libra at 2:46am, creating tension between the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. chiron opposed her last week and uranus quincunxes her this week- bringing rocky territory into relationships, partnerships, marriage and commitment. juno in libra wants peace and harmony but at times will stay on the surface to do so and sweep things under the carpet. both chiron and juno are exposing what is in the shadows. shadow work in relationships is key right now! juno is also about commitment to self and our own path. if we are too busy looking out at others- what they need to do or what we need to do for them- we will miss the amazing growth opportunities present right now!
at 3:41am retrograde mercury in cancer square mars in aries, for the 2nd of 3 times due to mercury’s retrograde journey (the first was may 10th when mercury was in taurus square mars in aquarius, the 2nd is today and the last will be july 27th the day of the last venus/neptune quincunx). mercury/mars in may was in fixed signs and was more bull headed (mercury in taurus) and rebellious (mars was in aquarius). now mars is in aries the sign he rules- heading into front end shadow for his retrograde late summer into fall and he is chomping at the bit! mercury is in cancer the sign of emotions and feelings and the square between the two can definitely exacerbate tendencies to being emotional reactive and emotionally subjective right now. it’s super important to THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK and count to 10 before you react so you can take time to respond. this is feisty, fiery and potentially aggressive and combative. learning how to hold people accountable without shaming them- and learning how to hold OURSELVES accountable without collapsing into shame- are critical right now. take a listen to brene brown’s latest podcast all about this- https://brenebrown.com/podcast/brene-on-shame-and-accountability/?fbclid=IwAR3ZGAfxb-4ROgbwCeEx3p5DIWmAptprmjJS1A4TYKncWNhwx9QNjfyH9Bw

venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 8:03am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld! venus/pluto brings us into the depths and takes us through massive transformation by way of endings, loss, death and/or facing our deepest fears and obsessions around Love and partnership. facing our jealousy, possessiveness, anger, rage and need to be in control is key. equally so facing our fear of the depths, our tendency to stay light and non-committal, and our desire to move on quickly before things get deep and penetrate our soul. facing any shadows that arises in regards to the depths or the surface is key today. from today through tomorrow venus triggers the pluto/eris square. be willing to face the shadow within and without <3
friday july 10th-
at 11:37am venus in gemini sextiles chiron in aries for the 3rd and final time, linking the heart with the Wounded Healer. venus/chiron is lovely for heart healing and healing in relationship. we are being supported in sharing our hearts, feelings, wounds and pain honestly and truthfully with others. venus in gemini wants to communicate and connect- from both mind and heart! from this space intimacy can open up and deepen. communication can be healing when we make sure our mind (and what we say/how we listen) is in service to the heart. this is the last of 3 venus/chiron sextiles (1st was 4/10 just after front end shadow of venus retrograde began and 2nd was 6/11)- and it is a major them of the venus underworld journey that just happened. healing is possible when we take off the rose colored glasses and pull our heads out of the sand (thanks to the Neptune squares to venus). healing also happens when communication and understanding occur. be willing to speak with compassion and listen with openness and watch how doors open and bridges are created over the divide. if you find that it is hard for you to take a stand and speak up this astrology supports that!!!
venus in gemini semsiquares eris in aries at 5:07pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! venus/eris can wake things up to shake things up. if we are complacent in our relationships or our lives in general- eris comes in to shine a Light on the shadow operating behind the scenes. venus is triggering the pluto/eris square from yesterday to today- so it’s important to pay attention to what is being brought to awareness right now. breakdowns can lead to breakthroughs. just be aware of how you operate in relationships and how you communicate- honesty and directness is expansive, control and domination or victimized submission is contractive.
saturday july 11th-
at 2:09pm chiron stations retrograde 9’26 aries, making the Wounded Healer the most powerful planetoid in the sky. themes of both wounding and healing are strong right now. opportunities to face wounds and past conditioning around masculine energy, fire, anger, desire, selfishness, immaturity and agency are present. but we can also find any shadow in our relationship to the masculine is up big time right now. healing and wholeness are the goal of chiron- so using his insights and what is arising right now to see more clearly what within us is hindering us and what needs to be integrated is the best way to work the astrology right now.
