5.18.21 – Talking through issues with Venus in Gemini sextile Chiron

There are difficult conversations where everyone ends up sad and hurt, and then there are helpful conversations which foster healing and the ability to move through painful places.  Today we are blessed with the latter: an easy sextile between Venus in Gemini, the consummate conversationalist, and Chiron, planet of wounding and healing.  Sometimes our hurt feelings arise from something that occurred in the present moment, but often they are rooted in something that happened long ago.  We often can’t tell the difference because the feeling is the same!  This Venus/Chiron aspect today can smooth out the wrinkles and help us to let any stuck energies release more easily.

Another Venus influence is building today which will culminate tomorrow: a harmonious trine to Saturn in Aquarius. Saturn helps to stabilize relationships and economic situations through a focus on a reality-based way of looking at the world.  We become more pragmatic and less swayed by feelings and the emotions caught up in old wounds, and meanwhile the joy-seeking Leo Moon opens doors to the experience of real joy.  A cornucopia of positivity that we can use for all kinds of good things! ☀️

The planetary energies are relatively quiet this week and mostly benevolent.  The effect of Jupiter in a harmonious trine to Uranus which culminated last week still lingers for another week or so.  With no other major planetary alignments to dilute the effect of this wonderful trine, we can create real magic. Jupiter’s expansive influence can help us to more easily receive the multidimensional consciousness that Uranus bestows when we can become unstuck from our outmoded thoughts and ideas.

Between the 18th and the 20th we have a harmonious connection (sextile) between Mars (action) and Saturn (structure) that will really help us to focus and achieve whatever we put our minds to.  Mars is in Scorpio right now where its aggressive nature is able to operate freely, and with the support of Saturn’s discipline we have a serious aid to buckling down and accomplishing a goal.  However, Mercury (mind) faces off in a challenging square to Neptune (imagination and illusion).  While our energies our focused under Mars/Saturn, this Mercury aspect heightens imagination and creativity, but also fosters a tendency towards woolgathering and spaciness.  Keep that in mind when you make your plans for these few days and make sure that you allow some time for creativity and to let your imagination run wild while in achievement mode.

Venus moves into Aquarius on December 20th, and for the next few weeks all of our interactions with others (Venus) will take on the Aquarian qualities of detachment and reason.  Aquarius is humanitarian and concerned for social justice, but it is more of an idea than an empathic connection.  Under Venus in Aquarius, we need space in our connections as we follow our ideals for the […]
