Can We Find Harmony In These Turbulent Times?
This last day of Summer is so bittersweet for me. I just love this time of year but I also don’t mind the coming Fall season for its beauty and refreshing cool weather.
This week is that week of transition into Fall. The equinox begins Tuesday September 22nd at 9:31 AM EDT (1:31 PM GMT). The Equinox represents balance as does Libra. We have this every year of course but from what I am seeing this year we are more in need of finding that balance then ever before. The division between people and groups is pretty huge at this point. The purpose of Libra is to bring things back into balance and find a common ground to foster harmony and peace.
As we can see that is not the case for many of us, we are very much out of balance in a lot of things and it shows. That is also how Libra works. We can not strive for balance unless something is out of balance, and so here we are. The underlying energy for the month will be about seeking that balance that Libra thrives on.
But what about the other aspects this week? Let me start with the chart of the Equinox. In this chart we have a difficult pattern called a “YOD” between Jupiter, Venus and Neptune. Venus being the apex planet so the focus of this pattern. Let me tell you about it.
Jupiter in Capricorn now moving direct is ready to start rebuilding many of the things that have been crumbling since his retrograde motion in May.
However, Jupiter makes a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. The connection between these two planets is amplifying our need to unplug, dive deep into meditation, intuition and the dream world, conspiracy theories are growing strong now too because of this connection. Some of us will simply need and want to unplug more often. That is not what Jupiter alone is looking for but there is no choice when planets are connected, they have to work as one. So the heavy lifting of Jupiter in Capricorn is watered down by Neptune in Pisces.
The apex of the “YOD” is Venus. How does Venus play out now that she is the center of attention in this pattern? Let’s start with what Venus in Leo is looking for and wanting to express. She is creative and passionate in this sign, heart centered and willing to do anything for those she loves and the things she is passionate about. But with both Jupiter and Neptune connecting by quincunx to her at the same time will hold her back for a few days. Feeling like no matter what she does it is not what she truly wants. She needs to be all in, heart centered and passionate, but these aspects will restrict this all week. (On Sunday she will be done her connection to Jupiter but then be interacting with Pluto and Neptune so the intensity continues into next week).
So this week maybe you will feel this, maybe you won’t, but if you are feeling frustrated and unable to do the things you are wanting to do FULLY now you know why. But all is not lost, the lesson of these aspects is for us to not go at our projects (or whatever) directly or at full force right now, we need to take things one step at a time. It is a cautionary tale really, “The YOD”.
Here is the process, take an action or make an adjustment to a goal or project you are working on then let go and allow the transformation to happen. We are not supposed to be too involved after our initial action with a pattern like this; we do something then we let go so the energy you have put in motion will then transform and create. Repeat as often as needed though.
We are learning to trust that the Universe will provided and return to us what we have put out.
Also this week let’s talk about Mercury. It was a quick run for Mercury through the sign of Libra this time, a mere 22 days. All of this week we have Mercury finishing up in Libra squaring off with the Capricorn planets and opposite to Mars. This week we tie up loss ends in regard to any type of partnership concern or clarifications you may be having.
We may talk things out, argue, debate or even stop communicating all together in some cases. That is not ideal but it is a choice some of us will want to make. However you are interacting with others this week, you can be certain it will be one full of personal choices so you can speak up and be heard.
