Major Planetary Note (MPN): Aquarius Full Moon, Wednesday, August 1, 1028p CDT. Venus begins to cover new ground.
Basic Meaning of MPN
Our collective spirits move through individualistic Leo. Our individual instincts hunker down in collectively soul-driven Aquarius. See and feel the paradox. Brain cells were found in our hearts ... a thinking heart and a feeling brain. The mirroring of the microcosm and macrocosm is in store within each of us. There's no lack of bandwidth. Information overloads us. It is our hearts balanced with our thinking minds that lands us on the Shore of Wisdom Island.
Venus (our personal sense of value) has been retracing her steps since she went retrograde (May 15-June 27). I will give each sign a date (give or take a couple of days) for contemplation of where you acted from right relationship and good character instead of reaching for something (or someone) out of impulse and instant gratification.
Thought Food (contemplate): Love does not understand oppression; love overcomes oppression (all signs need to read Pisces, pun intended).
Questions How do you want to make the world a better place? Where is your audience?
Venus has been attempting to broaden your subjective (and sometimes too narrow) vision since April 3.
Leo, July 23-August 22, concentrating spirit, aka individuality (fire)
El diablo (the devil) is in the details. Resurrect your artisan self. Live on multiple dimensions of reality. This Full Moon and liberating Venus were made for your potentially weary spirit. Or do I mean "wary"? You are no ways tired, are you? Actually, I'd say you're not weary or wary, just a bit cagey. You learn this behavior around the age of reason (5-7 years old, psychologists suggest). I have seen you hide a large family wound (usually from Daddy, but Mommy was complicit in her silence, no?) under an exceptionally sunny disposition. Master the narrative; take back your personal power. As the most concentrated fire sign, it is extremely important for you to demonstrate your consistent purpose to act from your center of integrity. A pandering Leo is so unattractive. Your dates of past Venus reflection (similar to post-traumatic stress disorder) are April 29 and May 26. Where did your impulses emanate from an insecure and wounded heart in lieu of a joyous and generous spirit? The first demonic detail may be an apology to a close friend who has become distant. Your ruler (the Sun) can burn. Being assertive is not the same as being aggressive; it's not called scorched earth for nothing.
Sagittarius, November 22-December 21, adapting and learning spirit, aka individuality (fire)
May 7 is your date of Venusian reflection (read Leo, too). Since the goddess of love has been spending her time in her domain of relationship, art and beauty, the force has been muy fuerte (very strong) with you. When you are too persuasive, you test limits. Like a roulette wheel, you bet on our hearts having an inexhaustible supply of overlooking capacity. It'll be the way you say what you say that will make the difference between paying the toll to cross our boarder or being detained indefinitely. This Full Moon illuminates a teetering seesaw of instinctive reason and glorious revelation. Get your facts straight; collaborate the stories of those new to your life. Like a good book says, "Faith without works is dead," so is an underutilized mind. Behave like your opposing sign of Gemini; a little direct examination won't hurt anybody.
Aries, March 20-April 19, initiating spirituality and action (fire)
You are known for many things, but reflection isn't one of them. One of the themes of this column is the past Venus reflection dates. These dates symbolize the way in which you get beyond what your family wants for you, for you to determine what you want for you. Your family recognizes your impatience, so they expect you to get things going (aka stirring up drama). Does nothing get done if you don't start it? Mostly, almost always yes, but know this: We wait for you because you want to be first more than we do. May 15 is your Venusian turnabout date. Like this Full Moon, the goddess of love just wanted to take a break from too much drama. Sometimes your headstrong self needs to take a break and simply hang out with those who think and act like you, for a spell. Venus goes into watery and challenging (because they're so sensitive) Cancer on August 7. Get your space to retreat from those who do not understand (or want to) after this date. Everyone has his or her own individual song to sing. Why not coax out someone else's individual voice? You'll be glad you did.
