This week’s occultation of Venus (passing over the Sun) overshadows our world for months to come, signaling a series of financial situations leading us further into a state of economic awareness (there is a crisis).
Venus’ occultation also prepares us for the upcoming June 24 Uranus square Pluto (revolution and transformation of the ’60s reappears).
It’s a busy astrological planetary week, the usual way of being during Gemini, the sign of Interplay, lines of light beams, mutability and constant flux.
This week Mercury enters Cancer (Thursday), Jupiter, after a year in stabilizing Taurus, enters Gemini (Monday) and Chiron (the wound) is retrograde (9.45 degrees Pisces) Tuesday morning.
With Mercury in Cancer we are resourceful, talking about what nurtures and sustains us as a people stewarding a planet. We all become intelligent “planetary mothers.” With Jupiter in Gemini, we talk a lot, all at the same time. Both Jupiter and Gemini receive (and radiate to humanity) Ray 2 (Love/Wisdom) from Sirius, the blue-white star left of Orion’s belt. This very same Love/Wisdom resides within the heart of the Sun and our hearts, too. Love’s potent this month.
With Jupiter in Gemini, while seeking mental harmony and to clarify love, we also experience a deep cosmic mystery. Chiron’s (wounded healer) retrograde (till mid-November) reveals wounds that are hidden and the ways to heal those wounds. Then we turn toward others who are wounded. We are compassionate.
By mid June, six planets will be retrograde. Retrogrades turn us inward, to review, re-assess, re-evaluate, re-examine, re-appraise our endeavors and values. So we can fashion the new world, the new era, with the new qualities and new values that sustain everyone … everywhere … for all time.
