This week has some spirited heart energies moving through that should pick up the pace of creative expression and positive transformational change.
After the Moon moves into lively Sagittarius late Sunday (where it stays until early Wednesday), heart centered Venus in Leo makes relatively graceful connections with both Uranus and Jupiter.
And on Wednesday at 1:32 PM EDT there is a Capricorn Full Moon that holds Neptune in its signature.
Early Monday June 29 Venus in Leo trines Uranus in Aries, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square and Jupiter/Uranus trine. That means that more positive change will be opened up though relational interactions. This aspect will be felt for several days leading up to and after the exact meeting.
Then on Wednesday before the Full Moon, Venus in Leo makes another connection- this time a favorable conjunction with Jupiter in Leo.
This is a good week for experiencing strong heart connections with others. Some of these heart connections may be unexpected, some may up the knowing of connections already felt.
On our road through transformation into an Age of Aquarius, which has been picking up speed in 2014/15; we need to be more open hearted, trusting the connections that come through our hearts, which are gateways to our souls.
It is best not to label the connections too soon. Some automatically go to sex or romance when their heart feels a strong connection with someone else.
But that might not be the reason the Universe is bringing you such a strong heart connection. There are so many possibilities for the hearts merging.
Sometimes it is because you have things to learn from another, things to give to one another. Sometimes there may be past life recognition that may require further investigation.
Sometimes this person you are feeling heart connection with is meant to be a catalyst for transformational change in your life. And yes sometimes a sexual and/or romantic involvement may be the stimulant needed for such transformation.
What do you do if you are living a stable, comfortable life, in a committed relationship; and then this powerful heart connection penetrates your soul ?
In pre ’60s culture, people would stay in their stable lives and relationships no matter what. Perhaps they would have an affair but still stay in the relationship. Then the ’60s seemed to give people the permission to follow their hearts, even if it meant breaking up relationships and families.
Now there are powerful transformational winds of change again, similar to the ’60s and ’70s.
People have been opening to natural heart and soul connections more readily again lately. They are even more open to gay or bisexual behavior now, transexual, polyamorous, and open relationships.
This is because there is such strong energy moving through to trust your heart and be true to your authentic being. But there should be a warning label on these connections: this relationship or lifestyle will break down your old status quo and suck you into a whirlpool of enormous change.
Yet that might be exactly what you need to grow and evolve, to move out of ego control, and to connect more authentically with your true Self and life purposes.
Trust your heart, but consult with your head. Use the relationship between them to get the clarity you need. But of course sometimes the power of the heart connection leaves you no choice but to follow it. Those kind of connections give no real choice at all, but they do not happen all the time. When they do, the power of divine Love is making a powerful statement that cannot be denied even if it will disrupt one’s whole life.
It may be wise to have an astrological or other kind of consultation during these kind of crises, so you can get to the deeper meaning of the heart connection and the crossroads you are facing.
Heart connections this week may also be just light and fun ones, ones that promote creative expression. That creative expression will be conducive to your transformational growth. It may help you to better know your authentic self. Creativity from a heart space almost always opens a doorway into self knowledge.
After Venus makes conjunction with Jupiter in Leo on Wednesday July 1, there will be a Full Moon in Capricorn.
A Full Moon in Capricorn always has the Sun in Cancer exactly opposite the Moon in Capricorn. Cancer is our inner personal orientation, while Capricorn is our more outer directed impersonal orientation.
Cancer seeks a safe unconditional setting or personal connection that allows it to be able to be itself naturally and organically.
Capricorn cares more about accomplishment and task oriented projects that require planning and discipline.
Cancer cares more about nurturance and moving wherever its feelings dispose it toward. It does not like set obligations, outer world responsibilities or any “shoulds”.
Capricorn values getting things done efficiently and so has no time for moods or feeling swings.
So now at the Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn it may be a good time to become more aware of how you balance outer responsibilities or career choices with personal home and family considerations.
And do you need more time to “just be” without judging yourself? Or conversely do you need to “step up to the plate” and do what you have to do even if you do not feel like it?
There will be a strong Neptune connection in this Capricorn Full Moon, as it trines the Sun and sextiles the Moon. This suggests a need to surrender to the flow and magic around this Full Moon. Don’t try to figure it all out in your head. Let clarity unfold instead, in its proper timing.
With Neptune being strong in this lunation, there may be some confusion, so again let go and just let it all be processed later.
On the global scene, there is a deadline this week to come to an agreement with Iran around its nuclear program. As I write this, there are some big bones of contention still, but most who are directly involved do desire a solution.
The planetary confusion mid week may force a continuation of talks beyond the June 30 deadline, or at least much confusion about what exactly has been agreed to.
And there is no agreement in Greece on its economy. The latest is that there will be a referendum put to the people to decide on its financial fate. The economic health of Europe and much of the world are dependent on Greece.
And there was a big sign that the light of the Age of Aquarius in shining through more brightly now as the Supreme Court of the USA made a decision that makes Gay marriage a law of the land.
July will pick up the pace of transformational change again, especially mid to late July and into early August. A major turning point will develop during that time period.
Enjoy what could be a rather magical week if you are in the flow.
Till next week,
