All those bubbling spiritual truths, lesson, expanding into the consciousness that is forever and ever and beyond creating harmony and balance- those are in reach today. Yes, the out of reach may actually be in reach- while expanding at the same time of course. Let your subconscious recognize its shadows- you can use these tensions for great breakthroughs. You may be able to consciously perceive things you once feared greatly in a more practical and matter of fact way today. Maybe plans are becoming clear on how to deal with some heart wrenching emotions.
Venus opposing Saturn sets us up for the standoff between hard work, responsibility to the tribe and our people and the desire to just enjoy our personal space and a select few loved ones. Allow this opposition to birth the highest expression of these two things. Oppositions are where the two have the ability to create a third. This is seen in the most basic representation of man and woman creating child. Or the Holy Trinity of the Father, Holy Spirit (Blessed Mother) and Christ Child. We must see the marriage of some form of opposites to create a new thing.
In this case- what is the child asking to be born between the Saturnine energy of real life lessons and work in the sign of the ruling order of the tribe and the Queen of Love and Beauty in the sign of the foundational cultural order of the tribe? Will we choose to see the beauty in the work? The bliss in the lesson? The love in the discipline? Is there a way to infuse practicality into our art and pleasure? Can we ease tensions and find a soft space of love and compassion with the child who is learning the hard lesson?
Maybe that child is us, and we can serve to be gentler with ourselves while remaining willing to do the work. Maybe it feels like someone else is coming down hard on us, and we can show them the innocence in our mistakes, and take our space to lick our wounds and find our own strength. Then we can thank them, for if not pushed we may never have learned how strong we truly are. Cancer needs emotional connectivity- find those who can hold space for you in a tender way, or chose to be that for someone else. We all need healing, we all deserve forgiveness, we are all here learning and growing and love has to be the aim or else things get dicey really fast.

Stay calm and centered. Turning inward from the social Libra Moon, Scorpio asks us to look deep within ourselves. Luna will light up Uranus asking us to be willing to allow some revelation around his new position in Taurus. Which house is this accenting in your chart? Taurus is calling upon us to listen to our deep body wisdom. The Ravens may be asking us to recognize to the magic we possess in our bodies. The rolling thunder at night echoes the call of spirit to align to our destiny. All things come alive with this axis.
This Scorpio Moon may want you to honor your sacred desire as your personal genius. It is only with the courage to look deep within ourselves, acknowledge our desire bodies and illuminate them into love that this desire becomes that genius.
Do you scold and chastise yourself for your desires deeming them evil, selfish, vain or whatever label given them by institutions you were subject to? How can we turn and look at that desire as innocent and coming from a place of love? The desire for money is truly a desire for security which is not inherently evil. The desire for sex is a desire for intimate connection and procreation, and is not evil either. The desire for power is a desire for freedom which is certainly not evil.
This is not meant to be a game of manipulation to give excuses to unconscious behavior. It is a practice in getting in touch with the deeper more intimate parts of our being that when shoved into the shadow because they were not accepted by society become warped and express themselves in negative ways. When we transform these desires into the light by infusing them with love then they can be expressed in healthy, loving and positive ways, In alignment with our highest selves.
We know this is true when it does not hurt ourselves, others or any of the Earth. We know this is true when we feel no anxiety in our bodies, only strength and calm. Uranus in Taurus for the next 7 years will be giving us a strong chord that can resonate through our bodies and ignite our body wisdom in this way. Try sitting with a decision and feel the sensations that come over your body. We can use our bodies like tuning forks to see if something is in the right tune for our beings.
Sunday May 27th- Moon in Scorpio
Moon conjunct Jupiter 12:48pm
Moon trine Neptune 1:23pm
Moon sextile Pluto 10:12pm
As the Full Moon nears she meets up with Jupiter (Odin) in the sky for some revelry. Typically, a bounteous and pleasing aspect the moon with Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio in trine to Neptune and sextile to Pluto may also feel a bit like the expansion of the things we don’t always like to look at but gives the ability to look at them in a new and positive way. Taking the optimistic point of view is usually best but sometimes a bit delusional if we are avoiding the work required in front of us. Sometimes the work is just not clear yet. That is when we become still.
Sitting still in the darkness doesn’t mean we are without fear, it means we learn the discipline to watch it rise without acting. Letting it fall, without action. It means just allowing. It means smiling while we face our greatest fears because we remember that this reality isn’t actually real but it is at the same time. We remember the truth that our light is eternal and that light is made of love. We are all powerful and subtle creatures worthy of understanding and connection. Find those who are willing to do the deep work with you or find your favorite music or art to connect with if they aren’t available.
Maybe from this space we feel the urge to create some piece of art about it all. Artistic expression and exploration is a tool we can use to work out our inner worlds. It does not have to always “produce” on the physical place. The point is the process, and what is produced can only be known on the other side. The Moon who rules creativity along the lines of poetry and the delicacy of silver threads weaving through all of our beings is illuminating the Jupiter-Neptune trine which can allow massive waves of inspiration, compassion and the beauty of interconnection to be infused into our vision.
With all of that said, separating Venus opposing Saturn has potentially taught us something about how to have the discipline to channel our creativity and beauty into material form or some cultural service. When deep in the waves of eternity we can channel incredible amounts of beauty, but we must find the shore and get our feet on solid ground. I guess the other option is to become like the sirens and create from our souls in song- but even then we need our heads above water. Engage your grounding practices to stay in your body and nourish yourself.
Blessings and Stardust,
