This is the week in-between the solar and lunar eclipse, and there is a continued focus on values and our ability to trust in our own resources and creative potential.
A reminder that we came here to manipulate energy, manifest and create.
Venus, the planet of love, values and beauty, enters the fiery sign of Aries on Monday igniting a passionate spring awakening. Venus has been through a lot this year, starting with a retrograde in Capricorn, then under the influence of Mars ever since. But this week, she’s taking her power and beginning a new cycle around the zodiac. Venus made several beautiful and healing aspects in Pisces, which she will now lean on to ignite new beginnings. As Venus rules Taurus, she’s the dispositor of the North Node - so reflect on the Venus-themes you’re desiring with the eclipses - love, beauty, etc. - and take aligned and inspired actions.
In detriment in Aries as Venus is about receiving, and Aries energy is action-oriented - therefore this transit can be a little tricky. Our love nature and the energy with which we go after what we want is quick and impulsive, feelings can run hot and cold as sparks can quickly fizzle. However on the plus side, Venus in Aries is adventurous and will free you from stagnancy. Our impulsive nature will ground itself more when she enters Taurus May 28th - so my advice is to run with Venus in Aries and put it to good use. Just remain mindful of future goals, and if you truly have the energy and desire to continue whatever projects and relationships are ignited under the spark of Venus in Aries. Instead of forcing - focus on alignment.
On Tuesday, Jupiter, the friendly planet of expansion, sextiles Pluto, the planet of transformation, providing abundant potential for healing and regeneration. This is an energy for tapping into internal power and releasing the parts of our past that are no longer aligned. All of this is enhanced with Pluto retrograde and Jupiter being tail end of Pisces. This aspect signals a powerful chance to create your own luck and fortune on a grand scale. On Thursday, the sun makes its annual conjunction to Uranus, the great liberator, agent of change and planet of revolutionary enlightenment. An energy designed to deliver a shock to our systems. Due to Uranus’ involvement in the 4/30 solar eclipse, this conjunction may activate the potentially destabilizing shifts and changes playing out, collectively and individually, as part of the eclipse story.
Allow the radical energies of change to empower and provide courage as you take your next step. Eclipse energies are still *very* strong and we have a total lunar eclipse on May 15th, so my advice is to continue seeking inner stabilization while allowing the eclipses to move you and align you with your fate. If unexpected events happen, try to flow with it and trust that it’s happening for you and aligning you with your fate.
This week the sun, which accounts for 70% of the neutrino influence, finishes in transit through Gate 24, The Return, which was the location of the 4/30 solar eclipse and carries an energy for the natural and spontaneous process of transformation and renewal. On Wednesday the sun enters Gate 2, The Receptive, also called Gate of the Direction of Self, or The Driver. This gate is our inner compass and the ‘higher’ knowing of Gate 2 is rooted in the direction of the self towards love and beauty via the Magnetic Monopole, the Driver, which is located in this gate. Gate 2 also deals with the illusion of separation, and with Uranus currently positioned in this gate, I believe this is reflective of the global awakening we are currently experiencing.
Overall, the magic of this gate (and this week) is reminding us that when we live correctly and according to our strategy & design, we receive impulses that help guide us on our path. We have abundant potential for self-empowerment when we follow our creative and individual direction in life.
This is an extremely fertile and potent energy, therefore I highly recommend booking a consultation if you feel called to do so. Book here.
Questions to ask self and journal prompts:
As Venus begins a new cycle, what new cycle am I beginning pertain to love, beauty and self worth?
What would I do if I were fearless and knew I couldn’t fail?
Where is my passion and creative energy currently guiding me?
What radical shifts do I seek to make?
Who am I?
Ways to utilize the energy:
Funnel passion and creativity into projects that strengthen your sense of self.
