Mars disarmed by Venus and the Three Graces,
by Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825)
Overall, this week sees the Moon as our most active force in the sky. The Moon is always making her rounds, traveling faster through the zodiac than any other celestial object. She interacts with the rest of the planets more frequently and so her connection with other planets is very transient.
The Full Moon in Pisces we had a few days ago, is now waning, so we are becoming more internalized emotionally. Full Moons and New Moons can be a time where emotions are emphasized and can mark turning points in how we feel. Because emotions can be all over the place moment to moment, they give us strong clues about the kind of energy we currently hold. When the Moon is waning, as it is now, we can be in the process of releasing emotions that we no longer want so we can make room for the kind of energy we want to experience for more emotional fulfillment.
Emotions are very strongly linked to our thoughts as well. What you think will impact how you feel, and vice versa. Mercury, ruler of thoughts, is currently in Libra, so we will be working on finding ways to bring our thinking processes into harmony and balance. The truth is an important factor in how we perceive life now.
There aren’t many strong anchoring points of other planets dominating for most of the week. So, this week will likely have a lot of ups and downs emotionally. One minute you could feel totally blissful, the next you could feel downright in the dumps and depressed. Know though, that your feelings will come and go as quick as clouds, unless of course you choose to hold on to specific thoughts and emotions for a lengthy period. The emotions that come up for you are those that need the most work. They are giving you clues to what you need to work on. Life is work after all. It is a process. It takes decisions and actions to make life what it is.
The Moon travels from Pisces to Cancer this week, which points to an emotional start and end to the week. These water signs could have those feelings well up, and some may shed many tears. Finding comfort with those that are compassionate and nurturing is good for the soul this week.
If you’re having an emotional week, it can take an external perspective to help you find clarity, especially if you feel stuck. If you are having an emotional time or a situation you need to make sense of, I would be happy to provide you with insight and advice with a personal reading. You can learn more about that here.
The Moon does dominate this week in her waning phase from the Pisces Full Moon, but there are a couple of notable aspects to speak of this week...
While Venus is still retrograde, she meets up with Mars in Leo on Tuesday. As Venus is the goddess of love, and Mars is the male archetype holding lots of passion and action, this could be a day that brings a steamy dynamic to relationships. There could be intense magnetism or the feeling of needing to be with a significant other. However, it’s also possible, with Venus retrograde, there can be a lack of clarity on what you really want in someone or in a relationship. If you lack intimacy in your relationship this could be a turning point. Some may feel like they are just indulging not knowing what they want. If single, it could be that simply enjoying the chase is considered part of the fun. This is a time where tastes are highly likely to change.
As noted, this summer has seen a lot of relationships change. Announcements of celebrity splits and divorces have been common since Venus has been retrograde in Leo, the sign of entertainment. We should start to see more public announcement of marriages, once she goes direct. We’ve also seen the especially public hacking of the Ashley Madison infidelity website during this Venus retrograde, which is so fitting for this symbol. What a wake up call for relationships. With Mars and Venus retrograde getting closer in Leo this week, we’ll likely see more explosive reports.
On the weekend, just before Venus goes direct, the Sun in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn are in harmony on Saturday. Both in earth signs, this is a strong indication of practical efforts creating a positive, empowering shift in energy. This indicates that we will each be realizing that we are ready to do the work needed to live up to our potential. Creating a plan that totally shifts the way you climb the ladder towards your own personal definition of success can set the stage for many rewards. This is a great time to take steps to implement a business plan, or showcase your abilities to someone in a position of authority.
Finally this week, Venus stations direct on Sunday September 6, 2015 at 4:29 a.m. ET. This can be a time to reinvent your personality in the name of bravery and courage so you can bring forward your strongest character traits. If you live passionately from the heart, what you will likely find is a beautiful person you can be proud of.
There can be a huge difference between pride and arrogance though. Pride can be an experience of joy and appreciation of who you are and honoring your skills, abilities and accomplishments. It can come from a place of gratitude. Arrogance on the other hand is always about about making other people feel inferior by coming from a place of egotistical comparison.
Venus also rules money, encounters with those that like to flaunt their success and make bold statements can be a great example of they type of characteristics to not emulate. Whether you are financially well off or not, know that at the end of the day people will care more about how you make them feel than how much money you have in your bank account.
Venus is about self worth and creativity as well. So, this is a time to reflect on and explore the masculine and feminine aspects of yourself for a more well rounded, expressive, more whole personality. If you’ve been holding yourself back from exploring your artistic capabilities, the urge to take action and enjoy the process can come on strong enough that you stop procrastinating and start doing.
Finding pleasure in the beauty in the world will be emphasized. Finding inspiration in arts and entertainment can kick off a new phase of creativity in your life.
I hope you all have a wonderful, abundant week. Thank you for reading and sharing the love. Namaste.
