Rosy Love Goddess update
Retrograde Venus is now in that all-important very phase as she re-enters the last degree of Pisces (tropically) on the 12th of April, staying the sign of her exaltation until the 24th April; meaning she is in the best possible place she can be to emanate a cosmic kind of love within the collective environment. This end degree of the zodiac implies an inherent understanding of all that has gone before; with the planet of love at 29 degrees Pisces it suggests that when we come from the heart we’re able to forgive, show tolerance and empathise in any given situation to be compassionate towards others (even if they upset us). At this very last degree of the zodiac imagination is the key to shaping the future.
Venus, symbol of all we care for and cherish, as a morning star awakens the love vibration; and as she rises she is also gaining light with her greatest brilliance on May 5th. (Lucky Taureans who have birthdays around that time!)
After her biblical 40 day retrograde, Venus goes forward on the 18th April. Yet the day before she leaves Pisces to go back into Aires she kickes her heels in two last moves in her cosmic dance, which are rather extraordinary as she first conjunts Mars on the 21st, then occults the Moon, on the 22nd April. (Venus last occult the moon October 2008).
Exalted Venus can have a soothing effect upon feisty Mars, and previous warring factions should come to an agreement; Mars only disarms for Venusian charms. The the coming together of the cosmic lovers signals ♥ LOVE CONQUERS ALL ♥ and to actively raise bodhicitta (opening the heart-mind) in order to show limitless compassion to other sentient beings becomes even more relevent, on a universal scale. This dynamic union preceeds the occultation, the hidden transference of energy between planets as they come together to create a potent influence. Mars is dynamic, while Venus represents love, and the Moon our emotions.
With this particular occultation the Moon will be waning. A waning moon encourages us to release negative feelings. A Moon~Venus ~Mars transmission of this calibre is specifically about overcoming personal desires and balancing our sense of self-worth with the needs of others, i.e. the collective. This is not to say we should be selfish or egoist, but to see the value in being oneself aligned within a greater whole, i.e. there is no difference between one or many. To be aware of this interdependence encourages self-awareness and unconditional love (of self and others) and an ability to act upon heartfelt intention at the same time mindful of the changes now being implimented in the spirit of cooperation.
Let the love shine on….
