Sunday, Jun 8 2014 Venus Tri Pluto
12°Ta53' D 12°Cp53' R
The merging of one's survival needs with those of a group. Sharing and trusting. Intense interactions with others.
The week starts off with intensity over finances and with women/children. There may be some covert activities which take over a situation with powerful influence. Women may deal with power issues or money issues which may become prominent in the news. Venus also signifies what we create, which can run from a piece of artwork to children.
Trines are unstoppable flows of energy. One major news story is the thousands of children from South American who have been illegally brought over the border into the U.S. causing states to struggle with how to accommodate them.
Issues surrounding budgets could also result in political problems. More people may push their power to avoid paying or to receive more funds now.
Relationships may also be affected by this aspect. Feelings may be more intense with a partner or other loved one which can be for good or ill. The power to completely transform a relationship or finances is available now.
While this aspect of Venus and Pluto can be overwhelming, it can be used positively. By channeling the energy towards working with others to improve your power physically, financially or socially. Embarking upon a new project with gusto could lead to great success.
It may take a change of perspective to realize that a perceived problem could be a source of power. Making that shift may allow you to obtain the best results of this aspect.
Monday, Jun 9 2014 Neptune Retrograde
Neptune is stationing retrograde on Monday which may result in people going back and dealing with substance abuse issues, isolation, institutions or attending to spiritual issues.
Neptune will remain retrograde from now until the end of the year - Nov 16th 2014.
Neptune rules over water, pharmaceuticals, intoxicants, addictions, psychic influences, fanaticism, music, photography, scandals, deception, unconscious, confusion, mysteries, and the ocean among other things.
One way that this retrograde may work out is that something related to Neptune may be put on hold now only to resurface at the end of the year to be dealt with.
Friday, Jun 13 2014 - Full Moon
We have all heard the effects of the full Moon, when emergency room visits escalate and people act a bit more "loony" than usual. Some claim that this is an old superstition but it is a scientific fact that the ocean tides rise as the ocean on the side of Earth facing the moon gets pulled toward the Moon. This creates high tide and pulls the ocean water away from the earth.
Although there doesn't seem to be any scientific proof of the full Moon effects on humans, the fact that the human body is made up of approximately 80% of water, it is easy to understand why the full Moon may have such an effect on people, especially those with an emphasis of water in their charts (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).
If tensions have been running high, the Full Moon or opposition between the Sun and Moon, is the time when it all comes out. Confrontations may occur and matters that may have been kept 'under the surface' are put on the table to force everyone to finish it or decide what the next step is.
The Full Moon represents the fruition of what was begun at the previous New Moon two weeks earlier, in this case it was a New Moon in Gemini back on May 28th. This Full Moon in sign of Sagittarius means that international issues, traveling, higher education, law, religion, philosophy, publishing, internet, and prophecy will be highlighted now.
Venus Opp Saturn
17°Ta44' D 17°Sc44' R
Distance from others. Inhibitions. Utility over beauty. Exacting distinctions. Serious or traditional social matters.
Venus opposing Saturn in the money signs of Taurus/Scorpio shows that confrontations and problems with financial matters may be the focus at this time. Taking a hit in the budget, having to cut back or do without will be the center of attention now.
This is a potentially difficult time for relationships that lack maturity or the ability to deal with practical matters. Now is the time to deal with things realistically when it comes to Venus issues: money, socializing, love, children, personal possessions, beauty and art. Working hard, doing without and attending to issues surrounding the elderly or handicapped may also be at the forefront at this time.
The best way to handle this energy is to be organized, realistic and prepared to work hard for whatever you aspire to in the aforementioned matters.
Whether it is a business partner or spouse, outlining the exact details of who is responsible for what will go a long way to improving (and keeping) your relationship. It may not be enjoyable but it is necessary.
Saturday Jun 14 2014 Mars Sqr Pluto
12°Li46' D 12°Cp46' R
Powerful drives. The urge for dominance and territory. Obsessions. Extreme efforts. Sexual responses. Efforts at personal transformation. Medical procedures. Strategic thinking -- plans for control.
The week ends on a potentially explosive note with Mars hitting Pluto. If people do not show maturity and restraint with earlier social/monetary matters, this aspect could result in chaos and violence.
Power issues that began at the start of the week with Venus trine Pluto could end up in a destruction by the end of the week. The real question is "Is it really worth it?" and "Will this solve the problem?"
Usually the answer is "No" on both counts but when tempers flare, the rational minds are usually shut-off. So the best way to deal with this transit is to avoid any situations that could become explosive.
Now is not the good time to confront others or force one's ways onto others. Waiting until next week to handle sensitive issues, is the best scenario for now. Cooler heads will make better decisions later on when the sky is more favorable for working in peaceful ways.
The tremendous energy of Mars/Pluto can best be used by directing it towards cleaning/clearing out one's environment, recycling, dealing with plumbing issues, or transforming something (renovating, painting, working out, gardening, etc.) This energy, when used wisely will allow for a tremendous amount of work to get done, as long as one does not use excessive force or try to do too much too soon.
