“Every hardship has a reason and every deprivation a purpose, if you look through eyes of insight.”
The Moon is void-of-course all day today. Venus stations to go direct this evening, bringing increasing restlessness but also offering powerful new insights that we will begin to feel more confident sharing with others. Nonetheless, today’s first efforts may seem to miss the mark in some way or another — our message may be garbled, misunderstood, or lacking the depth of thought that we are intending to convey. We should not be too disheartened by today’s misfires. Our goal is still to find some sense of safety and security even though today’s restlessness may seem to suggest that we’re only trying to escape our restraints.
Venus stations direct in Gemini tonight, marking the end of her 40-day retrograde phase.
As the moon moves through Leo today, it makes no aspects, giving us a chance to reflect on how we feel and all that has surfaced over the recent past. The moon in Leo requires you to be bold and courageous but also vulnerable and willing to share your love, creativity, and talents without expectations.
The retrograde of Venus has taken you on a journey of exploring your desires and values surrounding money, relationships, and creative situations. You’ve also had to confront your dark side, jealousies, and attachments, and get on intimate terms with all that lurks in the shadows of your psyche. But, hopefully, there has also been a recognition of a deeper indivisible, unsayable truth of the heart that transcends words and the duality of the mind.
Venus is back at the point in the sky where she was in April, and you’re revisiting situations with renewed understanding. There could be second choices or perhaps a change of heart. Knowing what you know now, what do you choose? Remember your lessons well. This is extremely creative energy, not just in the sense of creative projects but also in your ability to create your life as you wish it to be.
Retrogrades are a time for closure on the past. Venus will clear the final shadow phase on July 29, moving past the point she was when she stationed retrograde on May 12. Move slowly in the coming days, you’re learning where things stand. Remember your lessons, acknowledge your desires, and be honest with yourself. Then you needn’t fear repeating patterns.
As Venus moves forward, this is a chance to make conscious creative choices that reflect an inner heart truth.
