“What is not brought to consciousness comes to us as fate.” Carl Jung
“Karma is a complex dynamic involving the molding of the past, present and future. We should never reduce it to a simplistic concept of reward and punishment. Karma is the law of action, of change. We can create and are creating ourselves at every moment. Our power is in the present.” Diane Mariechild
Venus retrograde is now at the 29th degree of Libra. The 29th degree is considered “the fated degree” in astrology. The Lunar Nodes of destiny and life path are squaring Venus now. It bodes well to heighten awareness for any information that brings more clarity about relationships and particularly, formative relationship patterns of the past and how they affect relationships in the present. These aspects speak to karmic relationship patterns or those that have evolved down through ancestral lines.
It is a choice point of sorts and and a new or deeper understanding of the formative effects of past relationships can have a freeing effect in the present and result in more empowered decisions going forward.
Juno, the asteroid of commitment is opposite Mercury and Jupiter. It is a good time to review the nature of commitments you have now- commitments of all kinds- and to think about what kind of commitments you would like to make moving forward. Jupiter and Mercury together can bring a sense of expansion and optimism to this area of life.
One of the Sabian symbols for Venus now is,”A person alone in deep gloom. Unnoticed, angels are coming to his aid.”
