Venus enters into some embattled territory, as She squares Saturn and gets closer to Her retrograde motion later this month. She'll be taking an underworld journey for 40 days and 40 nights starting July 24th, dipping briefly into Virgo before going back onto Leo. There she will encounter the Adversary, or Dark Angel. This is Innana descending into the underworld to meet Her Dark Sister, who is really just the unknown aspect of Herself.
But first things first. This week, we have a New Moon at 23 degrees of Cancer. The sign of the Crab is of the Water element, and is a sign of nurturance, the past, the ancestors, and the safe security of home. Sounds so...comfy! But uh-oh...we have a glitch. Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, is involved with this lunation, and this time he is opposite Mars and Mercury EXACTY at 14 Capricorn! This can be very volatile energy, to be sure...
Find out more about that, along with this week's tarot card, by watching the Nuit Report for July 10-16. New Moon in Cancer...
