We have a bunch of retrograde planets and a New Moon in Taurus coming up, along with the continuing Venus-Saturn-Chiron story...
This is s time not to move forward, but to strengthen what has already become manifest.
That may seem counter intuitive, because Mercury and Uranus are joined in Aries....and these two together bring brilliant new ideas and a great deal of mental activity....but it can also amp up the nervous system. Mercury is retro, so its not time yet to implement. We need to stop and care for our bodies and our nerves, which is what Taurus teaches us.
We may feel anxiety becuase our values are being challenged to very much from so many angles. What is the importance of values? Do we need to have the same values as the people that we love to love them? How about to live with them?
Who's values are these. anyway??? Where did we pick them up? So many questions.
This is a time to define and reinforce your self esteem and your value. We can't keep moving forward in a constructive way without getting these basics strong.
This is a time to look more closely at body language, rather than words. What is being said? The body is the unconscious mind itself, and it never lies. We all want everyone to believe what we say we are, and how we consciously wish to represent ourselves. But there is so much more to who we are.
This is still not play time for relationships, I'm afraid. We are still doing a lot of sacred work in this area, and it can be painful. We have to confront fear, expectations, old pain, etc. to make way for the next wave of bliss. Venus hanging out for way longer than ususal with Saturn and Chiron says that its crucial.
This time is a progress report. Take the time to read it carefully. The new understandings we gain now will pave the way for the next manifestations to occur. Pay special attention to your thoughts and feelings round the new Moon Apr 26th. Its s potent one for creation and love. Its time to plant the garden and get more grounded. See how high you can raise your vibration at this moment to grow the best stuff!
The intensity gets ratcheted today as Luna crosses over the slow moving Lord of the Underworld, Pluto. The Dark God moves like "a tsunami at the speed of an iceberg"; his job is to draw us downward into the dark places to get them purged and healed. He also might get a kick out of our discomfort...haha!
PLuto is stationing to go retrograde in about 2 days, and so his intensity is even more powerfully felt now.
