What's Love Got to Do With it?

As I write this we are still in the phase of the New Moon in Aquarius.  Even though Aquarius is an air sign–it’s called “the Water Bearer” because have strong historical ties to the cleansing, life-renewing qualities of water.  Culturally for most of history it was commonly believed that we live in an enchanted sentient cosmos. This only changed in the late 17th century when the newer modern mindset became seen as more valuable than ancient traditions and perspectives. For the earliest astrologers, the Sun in Aquarius brought the rainy season when water poured from the heavens.   This was when the Nile flooded; the fields were washed clean as life was renewed for another year.  The Romans filled this month with rites of purification, followed by celebrations of the fertility goddess Februata, as they prepared for spring.

We, our lives, are always in the process of becoming.  

These ancient associations still live in your DNA.  Something inside may be calling you to get clean now for your rebirth ahead. On January 29th Venus moved from her retrograde process into direct motion again and she has a new role for the next 18 months: The transiting nodes of the Moon have moved from Gemini/Sagittarius into Taurus /Scorpio.  The moon is connected to our sense of belonging and the movement of the nodes serves to shift our focus where it belongs.  With the North Node (Think true north)in Taurus, our attention must shift to what we own both literally and metaphorically. Taurus, who falls under Venus’ domain is connected to value and self worth.  

For the next 18 months the Goddess of Love is in charge of this process.

The north and south nodes are also known as the dragon’s head and the dragon’s tail.  The head, in this case in Taurus crowning Venus for the next 18 months, is where we are asked to take things in and the tail, now in Scorpio, well, it’s where we release. We let go of what doesn’t nourish us. It’s time to clear out all the musty, droopy, angry, wimpy, static energy of the recent past.  The inner and outer spaces mirror each other.   If your body has been lethargic, your life is likely the same.

If your work has been uninspired, rearrange your office and throw out old papers. If family relationships are not as harmonious as you like, give your home a top-to-bottom cleaning.  Prepare the way for the year ahead. Reassess your priorities.  Where are you spending you time?  Your attention? 

Allow your focus to shift towards knowing and understanding what really matters to you. Owning it. Create time and space for it within your life.  

Astrologically, this summer promises change for all of us, but particularly those of us who have placements in the middle of the fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.  We are seeding the ground in this part of the year for the changes ahead. 
We live in an extraordinary responsive universe. When we honor our connection to it, when we become aware of the correspondences between the planetary movements and our lives we are able to move into a more trusting relationship with life. We profoundly know that we are never really alone but that the ever responsive cosmos is dancing alongside leading us forward. 

May your year ahead be filled with such connection❤️
