Venus (love, money, self-esteem, values, women, beauty) first entered Aries back in the early days of February then she stationed retrograde and backed into Pisces where she had to deal with Saturn (restrictions, road blocks, deadlines, delays, authority) and Chiron (wounded healer).
Now, she's back in "me first, let's get this thing moving" Aries and we are on to the next leg of our journey.
From victim/martyr to warrior maybe? The situation has changed but most importantly so have we. Venus retrogrades are for 40 days and 40 nights (sound familiar).
We have been tested and tempted. Do we really want this? Is this really something we value now? Demons from the past have resurfaced to be wrestled. There have been bittersweet looks backward. Photo albums and Facebook posting histories have been worn ragged from overuse. Maybe we've had to release some dream/situation/person.
When we know better, we do better - as Maya Angelou would say.
So now we know better and we are off to do better. BIG HUG.
We also have Mercury conjuncting Uranus and this influence will be felt for a few days. This is the conversation or news that comes "out of nowhere". People will be speaking impulsively. Our thinking speeds up and we might not be able to control what pops out of our mouths. Uranus also rules technology and innovation - this would be the time for news about new discoveries.
I read recently about a man who has invented a machine you can point at someone's head and they hear what you want them to hear - inside their head, no one else can hear it. The article made this sound like some kind of medical breakthrough, but all I could see were the dangers if this technology fell into the wrong hands. Like my husband's. I would be listening to AC/DC all day. Or maybe he would try one of those subliminal messaging things to get a hot cooked meal. Seriously though, this
And we thought the Age of Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) would be like the song/play with people growing their hair extra long and "letting the sun shine in"? Sorry, not so much.
Anyhoo, I'm not going to get into that on a Friday morning!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am preparing crafty goodies for my brother's baby shower tomorrow. He is becoming a first time father at 47 (and yes, this is with his 'first time wife' of almost the same age). Science, when the "should we do this" is factored in, can create miracles, too. We don't want to forget that.
With Mercury (thinking, ideas) hooking up with innovative and futuristic Uranus now - brilliant ideas, solutions and decisions can come of out nowhere. They may upset our apple cart, but maybe those apples have grown moldy anyway.
(One of the reasons we have a Trump presidency - he is Uranus remember - is our own inability to embrace CHANGE. The more we neglect these energies when they show up in our own lives the more energy the collective must deal with. I don't know what was going on with him in late March, but something from then will be back in the news now, too.)
This isn't the first time Mercury has conjuncted Uranus recently and it won't be the last. Remember Mercury is retrograde now (how can we forget?) and walking backward. He conjuncted unpredictable Uranus on March 26th when he was direct and again now as he backtracks and finally on May 10th after turning direct. Something here is trying to get our attention. This likely ties into our Venus retrograde story, too. News now will be news we can use. And trust. I'd say pay attention, but if this touches your chart you won't be able to miss it.
Mars is also conjuncting the Moon in fast moving Gemini. Today is going to fly. Get moving. If you blink, you'll miss it!
