Wrapped up in the planetary alignments of yesterday’s Aries New Moon (catch up here if you missed it) was a challenging square from Venus in Aries to Pluto. Any planet in the sign of Aries acts with independence and courage, and Venus, planet of relating and harmony, is no different. This understandably creates some dissonance in the best of circumstances but we also have a challenging square from the Sun, Moon and most especially Venus to Pluto, planet of endings and transformation. When tied to the energies of the New Moon, the power of Pluto to break down the weak links that hold us back intensifies and the archetype of the Phoenix bird arising from the ashes of the old life was a strong element of the New Moon.
Today the Aries Moon reintroduces Venus and Pluto for one last dance to force the truth into the open. By the time the Moon shifts into calm and peaceful Taurus just before 2 pm EDT/6 pm GMT everything will settle down and we can put the pieces back together and reorganize anything which has been lost during the earthquake. ❤️
