The seismic activity from week’s Libra New Moon continue to radiate out this week. While we figure out what we are going to do with each other, a welcome element joins the mix. Venus, the ruler of all we value, enters fun-loving Sagittarius and offers us a quiver full of hope, optimism, adventure and panoramic vision.
This bodes well for the tone of the relationship restructuring going on. True, Sagittarius can take a “my way or the highway” position, but you can head for the sign’s other possibilities. Don’t take developments as deadly serious. Find reason to smile and laugh. Treat the process as a game. You may get the hang of the rockiness.
Venus’ change of mode inclines us all to look for good times and for silver linings, too. It’ll be easier to see the benefit in much that has been transpiring, or to turn situations to the better.
Vision might be a bit too rosy at times, though. Expectations and perceptions could get out of line midweek, as Venus clashes with Neptune and whips up his cosmic fog machine. The eyes of love can overlook many a flaw. Just take care that they do not blind you to deception, or cause you to read more into a situation than is there.
Even with that, the week has an expansive buoyancy that carries us into the weekend. Life teems with possibilities. This new phase in relating has an exciting, invigorating side. Breaking from the past is freeing up energy and giving us a new focus. By the weekend, you could be feeling quite satisfied with yourself. Or demanding more of the pie. Or both.
Monday: The week gets off to a happy-making start, as the Moon contacts beneficent Jupiter just before Venus enters his home base of Sagittarius. Credit them for the widespread desire to let off steam. Some people are going to go too far in their quest for fun, games and adventure, like a kid seeing what happens when he sticks scissors into a wall socket. You’ll know you’re approaching the border when jiggles invade your gut. They increase as the evening grows. Turn off the theme from Jaws (it’s only a movie) and turn on a night light, metaphoric or real. If you’ve got a question or issue, ask for a dream about it. Be sure to specify that it come in symbols you understand and that you remember it. And put writing materials by your bed.
Tuesday: Your mind made a choice overnight. You’re waking up with a changed perspective, a brilliant solution or an openness to a concept that is radical for you. Not sure what that was? Note any dream fragments wafting through your brain, and look up the lyrics if a song is on your mind. Certain relationship developments feel good and right, even if they are not fully defined yet or come across as too good to be true. Trust your instincts. Trust your gut and perceptions. They are picking up accurate, stabilizing information. Keep those writing materials near your bed.
Wednesday: The dreamland delivers deliver emotional breakthroughs, chart a course to stability and offer empowering messages. Capture what you can as you begin the day; snippets may make sense later. Approach the day as full of doorways and that’s what you encounter. If you’d like insight about a particular relationship, ask for a dream before you go to sleep and ... You know the drill: Writing materials. Symbols you understand. Remembering the dream.
Thursday: The overnight hours explore love, kindness, dreams (yes, I know: dreams in dreamtime) and illusion. Are you being called upon to open your heart? Test driving action of the heart? Or being shown that affection is blinding you to someone’s true nature? Whatever the answer, the impulse to act on it kicks in early. Let those engines rev for the morning, because the Moon is void of course (what that means) from 6:11 AM to 11:18 AM EDT. When you’re off and running, ask for help from a higher source and it’ll be there. You might not believe it. It might unnerve you. But it’ll be there.
Friday: Emotional processing dominates the predawn hours. This latest round of deep level restructuring is hitting home and refocusing your emotional core. You’ve got the strength and power to go with the changes (and force some, if you need to) and bring them into real, stable, settled form. Come daylight, don’t be shy. Connections, conversations and information gathering all go well if you extend yourself. Reaching out fits easily into the day’s gregarious, indulgent atmosphere. Push yourself.
Saturday: More stretching, more pushing yourself, more dreaming larger and extending your grasp, please. A sweet reward awaits in the evening.
Sunday: A person can stretch, push and reach for only so long before emotional backlash hits. That’s what occupies your psyche overnight. As edgy as the process may be, it preps you to be open to leaving the discomfort behind and taking a chance. Communication does not flow smoothly. Conversations have an uncooperative or forced air. Go for the higher ground and the more loving approach. Increase that approach when you’re given the choice.
