The Genie, the Bottle, and the Future – Massive Sky Astrology


Coronary heart, Hospitality, and Generosity

Venus enters Leo this week (June 5, 2023, 6:46 am PDT) for an unusually lengthy keep, together with a retrograde interval between July 22 and Sep. 3.

Venus transits allow us to study what we worth. What within the bodily world brings us pleasure? Who’re the individuals we treasure, and what makes a relationship profitable in our eyes? When Venus is in Leo, the litmus take a look at is whether or not one thing – or somebody – makes us really feel beneficial, enticing, and revered. We are going to adorn ourselves in clothes that makes us really feel this manner, exit with romantic companions we’re proud to be seen with, occasion ’til daybreak, and demand royal therapy.

Whereas Venus is in Leo, we’re known as to share our coronary heart, hospitality, and generosity, normally by way of large gestures. Venus in Leo needs to select up her closest buddies in a limo and deal with them to dinner at a flowery restaurant, full with champagne.

It’s a sunny, life-affirming place for Venus – however first, we now have to get by its opposition with Pluto in Aquarius (June 5, 2023, 9:04 am). It’s a brief transit, nevertheless it will get this Venus interval off to a bumpy begin, with Pluto’s aspect eye at luxurious transportation, ostentatiousness, and indulgent gestures. However don’t let it throw you off your Venus in Leo recreation – when Pluto pushes you in the present day, push proper again with a roar.

Practicality, Frequent Sense, and Safety

Venus, the planet of enjoyment and many, makes a sq. to the Lunar Nodes (June 8, 2023, 1:37 pm PDT) this week. Planets sq. the nodal axis are stated to be “on the bendings,” an necessary place that catalyzes motion from one node to the opposite – between the default setting of the South Node, at the moment in Scorpio, and the evolutionary path of the North Node, now in Taurus.

The stress between the Scorpio South Node and the Taurus North Node is in regards to the aware decisions we make between concern and confidence. I’m saying nothing towards Scorpio in anyway, however the South Node amplifies the darker qualities of any signal it passes by way of, and it’s our job to consciously transcend them. Venus on the North Bending level inclines towards the growth-oriented North Node in Taurus, and our communal starvation for practicality, frequent sense, and safety.

At this sq., we’d do nicely in Venus-related issues corresponding to relationships and monetary safety to show our backs on emotions that draw us towards the South Node and its fears of what would possibly by no means come to go – and as an alternative, embrace and take confidence from what we’ve discovered by way of sensible expertise.

Nostalgia, Night Meals, and Psychic Vitamins

I‘m unsure I can clarify why, however generally I discover myself awash in nostalgia for a number of the least fantastic moments of my life. Not the actually tragic ones, thoughts you. Simply snapshots from an sad relationship or a vexing job, maybe, or from a financially strained youth.

I discover this bizarre wistfulness a fairly good analogy for the Pisces Final Quarter Moon (June 10, 2023, 12:31 pm PDT). Every month, the Moon’s Final Quarter section directs our gaze backward, and the Pisces Final Quarter coronary heart remembers each damage and failure in addition to every second of triumph and ecstasy. Over time, when previous ache dominates the story we inform about ourselves, it prevents us shifting ahead.

The Solar in Gemini guidelines with the top, however the Moon in Pisces guidelines with the center. It’s the signal of letting go, of religion and forgiveness. Possibly nostalgia for the previous is only a remaining step in processing – of assimilating all of the psychic vitamins from an expertise earlier than saying goodbye for good.

This Final Quarter Moon at 19º40′ Pisces marks the ultimate motion level in a Lunar Section Household cycle that started on the March 13, 2021 Pisces New Moon. The Sabian image for 20 Pisces is A desk set for a night meal; think of the coziness of that picture, the promise of family members gathering collectively for dialog and good meals. Do you lengthy for evenings like this? Do you treasure such gatherings in your reminiscence?

It’s not too late to search out extra togetherness and to make hotter, happier reminiscences. Take a remaining take a look at these snapshots from a tragic previous, then allow them to go.

The Genie, the Bottle, and the Future

As Pluto made its first epic shift into Aquarius (March 23), my social media and podcast feeds exploded with breathless headlines about synthetic intelligence, dominated by Aquarius. “Is that this the way it all lastly ends?” was the overall tone; would all of us lose our jobs? Would robots lastly destroy civilization?

There are lots of good conversations available about how one can handle this large leap ahead in know-how. AI is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. However one factor I feel we’ve seen previously couple of months is that whereas there’s no stuffing the genie again into the bottle, there’s extra that may be executed to arrange for the brand new paradigm. Our greatest hope is for human consciousness to make a minimum of as nice a leap ahead because the one we’re seeing in know-how.

Pluto retrogrades again into Capricorn this week (June 11, 2023, 2:35 am PDT). It returns to Aquarius for an extended keep on Jan. 20, 2024. Within the meantime, it sits between 27º53′-29º59 Capricorn, asking some sensible, pointed questions in regards to the genie, the bottle, and the longer term. What groundwork may be laid, and protections put in place, to take advantage of this new Pluto in Aquarius period?

Labels, Names, and Tales

Mercury’s trine facet to Pluto (June 11, 2023, 3:26 am PDT) opens a portal for reinvention. It’s like an adolescent going away to varsity and recognizing the chance to undertake a brand new nickname (or drop an odious one), and drop their “slacker” popularity for a spot on the Dean’s listing.

Names and titles matter. They’re Mercury’s method of telling the world what to consider us. Mercury in facet to Pluto calls consideration to the ability of names, phrases, and definitions to affect how we’re perceived. Often, that begins with how we expect and discuss ourselves. This week, take discover if you end up utilizing self-deprecating jokes or placing your self down. Observe how typically you apologize reflexively, when no apology is required, apologizing for merely present. When Mercury connects with Pluto, it’s time to take management over our labels, names, and tales. They matter. So can we.

Piles, Cobwebs, and the Clear-up Crew

Simply take a look at this mess – considered one of a number of towering stacks of paper, calendars, books, and tarot pastime detritus in my workplace. Whereas Mercury has made its lengthy journey by way of Taurus since April 3, together with a retrograde interval, I’ve executed nicely to empty the wastebasket in my workplace each week or two. The remainder has simply been scooped up into piles.

This week, lastly, Mercury enters Gemini (June 11, 2023, 3:26 am, by way of June 26). This lightning-fast transit of Mercury in its house signal lasts solely two weeks, nevertheless it provides an opportunity to blaze by way of your inbox, compensate for correspondence and submitting, and customarily blow the cobwebs away. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll be capable of get executed in simply a few weeks, with Mercury in speedy Gemini in your cleansing crew!

Pleasure, A Little Bit Additional, and the Take a look at of Time

How a lot can we really need to be able to be blissful? It varies from individual to individual, in fact. However happiness research have proven that past what is required for obligatory bills, plus a little bit additional, extra money doesn’t actually deliver extra happiness. It may well present extra pleasure and luxury, however that’s probably not the identical factor. Many individuals on their loss of life mattress would give the whole lot they personal for a bit extra time.

As Venus in glamorous Leo makes the primary of three squares to Jupiter in Taurus (June 11, 2023, 8:39 am PDT – the others are on Aug. 22 and Sep. 16), take a while to think about what number of hours of your life – probably the most treasured commodity of all – are exchanged for issues that don’t deliver you a lot happiness. Let your need for the latest, shiniest baubles be tempered by Jupiter in Taurus’ penchant for objects which might be well-made sufficient to face the take a look at of time. And take note of what makes you cheerful that doesn’t value a penny.
