Venus in Leo

“It takes a heap of loafing to write a book.” Gertrude Stein

Venus is is Leo now – a dynamic fiery sign- and moving up to a harmonious aspect with Saturn in Sagittarius. This will help get things back on track and help facilitate movement forward with well conceived, long term plans – a welcome relief after the long transit of Mars retrograde (since mid April. ) That time frame was better for an inner exploration of how to move forward rather than actually moving forward but usually comes with a modicum of frustration (Mars is the god of action likes to charge ahead.)  Now is a good time to put things in order and proceed wisely. As Caroling Casey wrote -“Saturn lays the tracks for the reality train to follow.”

And just a brief word on the  testy Mars/Uranus aspect which is exact Thursday. Both Mars and Uranus govern speed – Uranus adding the sudden, surprising and unexpected. Uranus also rules all things cyber. In terms of history our use of cyber technology is relatively new and has dramatically increased the speed with which news and events from around the world can reach us. This can be hard on nervous systems and difficult to integrate at the time.

With other aspects at play now it bodes well to provide extra down time for introspection, rest and rejuvenation.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,” A double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings.”

Sabian Symbol quote from Lynda Hill

Jupiter and the Sun

Over the next few days take advantage of beneficenr Jupiter’s expansive influence as it aligns with the Sun. There is likely to be increase in the area of your chart where this planetary pair is transiting – the very early degrees of Virgo.
With Jupiter transits it is wise to keep moderation in mind and to avoid excess – particularly with the opposition to Neptune – the planet of dreams and illusions. It can be a good time for increased spiritual awareness, for telepathic experiences and for expanding creative visions.
But it can also be a time of irritation and illusion. It bodes well wot make an extra effort to stay grounded.
One of the Sabian symbols associated with this time is, ” A man becoming aware of nature spirits and normally unseen energies.”
