“We are all travelers on a cosmic journey…” Paulo Coelho
We are all crazed travelers trying to understand and enter a new cosmic journey. Stop! Before you proceed to snort something silly. You may be confused, but you are not alone. Out of the confusion form new answers. Perhaps an idea for the first step forward? Stop and go within before dancing with a horse’s ass into the uncertainty of weird entanglements. Venus and Mercury continue retrograde until the first days of February, making this an opportune ‘STOP- time’ to re-evaluate, re-configure, and really understand the value of what you wish of 2022. This is especially true for any financial, friendship, love-related issues/Venus, as well as mental, and communication re-sets/Mercury. Stop and perceive what and who you love, and what needs updating. The energies of this time are intense, evocative, frustrating, and possibly empowering- if we are listening. It is a time to BE, not DO!
We have moved past the profoundly emotional Full Moon in Cancer, though its watery surge is still with us making everything more personally tender. We survived Mad-Dog Uranus stopping to go direct, sweeping the world into chaotic forward motion of bigger ideas, and exclamatory surprises. We are free. But free to be what? Check into old territory. What needs release? What has ended? Every retrograde of every planet asks these questions. Despite the frustration of feeling held back and confused, without these periodic ‘reversal check-ins’ we would not hit the pause button to ask, ‘how can I do this better?’ The present stop-sign is yet in place until the beginning of February for all things Venusian and Mercury-ruled. As these two planets have sovereignty over what we value/Venus, and what we think,/Mercury, the freedom and mental expansion we long for cannot correctly take place until we have New Ducky ideas in working order. You have two weeks before everything goes direct, and we head off into the unknown at ‘ramming speed.’ (Yes, I have re-peated myself here for a purpose.)
Don’t get frustrated. Take time to soften, and retreat, as we are under skies of intensity as well as uncertainty, making forward, plans inappropriate in this moment. Whatever we hope to embrace will probably be of a deeper nature, asking us to go below and beyond where we have been. This is an opportunity of a transformative inner space to connect what your passion and longing are reaching for. With Uranus now direct, ideas and pans seek a modern, updated expression, freedom cries out, and a unique POV expands. It goes deep and wide, but keep it simple despite the higher frequency and higher consciousness Uranus offers. It is traveling through earthy Taurus, so practicality and simplicity help us engage this higher manifestation. As you have witnessed this past week, Uranus in Taurus often calls up earthquakes, volcanic activity, surprising weather or environmental situations, and other weirdly unexpected events that throw us off-balance.
With the nodal axis (the energetic axis, or path, the world is working from,) shifting from the ‘information signs of Gemini and Sagittarius to Taurus and Scorpio~ one of the edicts is, ‘keep it practical, simple and of value/ Taurus. Dig deep and transform/Scorpio. The path of soul growth is the North Node, now in Taurus, ruled by Venus, therefore all things of a Venus nature are the path to be on. Scorpio, sign on the South Node, is how and where we are to let go. Issues of unhealthy emotional attachments and fixations, as well as the misuse or abuse of power and control.

BIRTHDAYS THIS WEEK: As Venus and Mercury both remain retrograde, this is a birthday to renew, or discard old relationships, especially the one with Self. You are deep-diving with Pluto as your transformational-guide through all Venus issues in order to feel ever more authentic to the person you wish to be. Your opinions and ideas will count this year, and very soon, you will have a better idea of how you wish to enter new goals and achieve them. Combine passion, integrity, and exuberance to go after what you desire.
