Venus Stations Direct - Creative Idealism

"Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear."

—Mahatma Gandhi

Venus stations direct this week, while Neptune — the 'higher octave' of Venus — turns retrograde. As Venus begins to move forward, we feel a restless, creative, idealistic impatience. Neptune's retrograde motion encourages us to find tangible routes to manifest our creative idealism. There has been a creative tension stirring since the first Venus-Neptune square back in May. We reach a moment where we can clear space, remove 'dead weight', and expand our perspective before Venus returns to square Neptune once more at the end of July. The Venus-Neptune square at the end of July will offer important opportunities to more fully describe the creative vision that has been under such pressure. The retrograde Mercury is guiding us to better understand how to achieve our dreams by finding inner security and safety. Mercury in Cancer seeks to apply information and intellect in order to find a path to easing our emotional uncertainty. We are looking for ways to share our dreams, goals, and inspiration with others. If we can't feel safe, we can't make the connections with others and instead, we become more defensive. There is a swirl of new activity this week, stirred by last Saturday's New Moon (11:41 PM 0° Cancer). However, before we can fully make use of the new impetus, we need to take time to review our situation and expand our perspectives in order to discover more potential and more options. Expanded perspectives require the safe connections that the retrograde Mercury is urging us to look for. As we begin to emerge from the confusion and chaos that has been challenging us since the beginning of the year, we need to make stronger connections with others. Without those connections, we may find ourselves stuck in a spiral of defensiveness and frustration. The intellectual, creative curiosity of Venus in Gemini craves connection. However, ruled by the retrograding Mercury in Cancer, needs a safe and secure environment in order to express the creativity effectively.

We feel the 'sea change' of the New Moon on Sunday. However there is cautious hesitancy to move ahead. Neptune turns retrograde on Monday, encouraging us to deepen our perspective and find tangible routes to express our creativity. We are encouraged to expand our boundaries and our perspectives on Tuesday. The nervous energy is felt as a 'call to action'. The Moon is VOC all day Wednesday, leading to breakdowns in leadership and garbled messages that don't fully express the creative vision we are trying to express. We return to hesitant cautiousness on Thursday but recognize that our perspectives have changed. Curious excitement is stirred on Friday but restlessness may keep us from making deep and tangible connections that allow us to fully express our insights. Breakthroughs are possible on Saturday. We begin to find extra support to pare away dead weight and clear space for new initiatives.
