This morning’s Moon-Saturn in Capricorn may have come with a heavy feeling, though one that at least came with information about the bottom line of necessities involved, whatever the circumstance. Use what you know: meaning, don’t allow your considerable knowledge and experience to drain down the memory hole.
One of the processes I take all of my astrology clients through is journaling some moments in their lives that show up as similar to the current time. This presents an opportunity to frame one’s personal history in a useful way rather than have it drive one’s life “unconsciously.” We have a lot of reevaluating to do.
With a Full Moon eclipse happening, we may experience a sensation of pressure rising, which will have the sensation of pushing at loggerheads, deadlock or stalemate. Given the mounting frustration in the United States, now being provoked by national protests against the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers one week ago, this could be messy.
Much of the year’s most daunting astrology has been in Capricorn. All that has happened to society the past three months we can attribute to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in that sign. Matters that fall under the Capricorn energy signature are not easily adjusted; they are more subject to breakdown and rebuilding, as we are seeing.
On Wednesday, Venus turns to retrograde motion in Gemini. The retrograde effect has been present for a while, as Venus and Vesta have been moving through Gemini in a long conjunction, which culminates over the next couple of weeks. What I have for you today is a simple message from this retrograde: it is about reconciling with yourself.
Beltane is often counted as the midpoint of Taurus, though this year there are solar events on either side of that marker. Monday, Mercury and the Sun form their exterior conjunction (when Mercury is, from our point of view, directly behind the Sun). Then on Thursday, the Moon opposes the Sun from the sign Scorpio, which is the Full Moon.
