Venus has officially moved into the ethereal and boundary dissolving sign of Pisces. For the next couple days she is challenging Saturn to soften his resistance. This can take the form of making it easier for us to let go of beliefs that prevent financial abundance, limit the formation of loving and compassionate relationships, and a generally resist entry into the flow of life. Venus says it’s time to reawaken our playful nature if work that is not enjoyable has taken over our life. It’s time to take a break, to reformulate dreams, and to end our relationship with something that feels confining and increasingly meaningless. It may also be time to consider a higher education program within the artistic or healing realm.
We are headed toward a Full Moon in Leo next Tuesday – generally speaking a culmination and ending of some kind. As the Moon grows brighter its influence intensifies. Emotions grow big and dramatic under Leos influence.
Pluto aligns in harsh aspect with this Full Moon signifying the need to make some major adjustments. Pressure to align ourselves with the status quo rather than our more authentic, loving, and humane nature may feel especially intense. Cravings for power and control must be reconciled with our emotional need for love and freedom of expression. Actions must be taken to free ourselves from emotionally confining situations. Those actions may feel big, bold, and dramatic and they may undermine structures that have been in place for a very long time.
Mercury continues in retrograde motion for another week and a half. In the sign of Aquarius he is carefully considering issues of personal freedom, friendship, and our most treasured dreams hopes and wishes.
It’s an emotionally dynamic week. If you feel overwhelmed reconnecting with friends seems like a good idea, especially if you haven’t seen them for awhile and enjoy their company.
Here’s to actions that set you free – and a wonderful week,

San Juan Capistrano,
This week following your instincts may lead you in an exciting direction. Your instincts and desires challenge old belief patterns that have you relying on your own devices in an isolated attempt to develop your talents and interests. As the Full Moon culminates in your 5th house of self-expression there is the indication that you have come as far as you can in a specific direction. It’s now time to release and to let something go. Pressures to stick with traditional definitions of success, to work harder faster and longer, and to accept more and more responsibility may keep you emotionally confined. It’s time for a major adjustment. Awaiting you this week is the choice to immerse yourself in some group project that feels especially exciting, to reunite with friends whose ideas never fail to stimulate, and to expose yourself to ideas that support your most cherished dreams for yourself and your life. Belonging to something bigger allows you to more easily leave the past behind.
This week Venus, your sign ruler, runs headlong into Saturn, the immoveable force that supports or limits your ability to achieve. There is the need to reconcile old social conditioning that tells you you can’t pull it together to achieve your goals. Your real ambition may be to become a major contributor to some highly successful, joint, humanitarian effort. This week something foundational regarding your ambition is coming to an end. The past is passing away and your mother’s influence, especially, is seen in a new light. Traditional limiting beliefs about future potential need be reconciled with innate talents and the likelihood of success within revolutionary and humane realms. This week it’s time to rearrange your life in ways that reflect your ambition and disconnect you from your delusion of “inevitable ineffectualness.”
Gemini’s verbal abilities, perceptual talents, quick mind, versatility, amazing writings, and curiosity are all highlighted this week. You can’t help but be admired for all the ways you keep other’s minds entertained while infusing them with knowledge and consistent evidence that life is an endlessly interesting “embarrassment of riches.” There is something along these lines though that may feel like it needs to be over. It’s up to you formulate an insightful question for yourself that’s never been asked before. Communication may be less about demonstrating your talents and cultivating trust than about presenting yourself as a leading representative of some larger mission. This may have roots in some foreign or an ancient wisdom teaching. This shift has the potential to release you from the past while softening your approach to relationships and financial concerns. It could set you free emotionally.
Tuesday’s Leo Full Moon highlights financial security, insecurity, self worth, and the values you live by. Something within this realm of life is culminating and ending. You’ve reached the end of the road and now it’s time to chart a new course. Challenging that effort is some traditional belief about the nature of relationships and your pivotal role in determining whether those “sink or swim.” The need to assume the bulk of responsibility accompanied by an abundance of hidden resentment is a possibility. Your tendency to lock others into powerless roles within relationships is frustrating for you, your partners, and others. This week some major emotional adjustment allows you to see your partner (or another) as well as yourself through new eyes. Being receptive to support is critical. This week you have the ability to rearrange your life in a way that is receptive and expectant of support – especially financial support. It frees you emotionally and it frees those who want to give back to you.
Leos may be especially influenced by this week’s Leo full Moon. Their physical bodies may feel especially vulnerable and their style and approach in need of some new kind of freedom. In need of major adjustment or a completely new arrangement is something involving your work, your responsibilities, power, control, and sense of authority. Beliefs about the centrality of your role and leadership potential are being undermined in some way by current arrangements. Your health may be suffering as a result. This week you have come to the end of the road. It is no longer possible to continue traveling in the same direction. Something ends now clearing the way for charting a new course. Everything up until now has been preparation for some much bigger assignment to come, something that opens your life in ways that feels more fitting to the high profile leadership role you were destined to play.
Virgos are in the process of reconsidering the value of purity, innocence, responsible approaches, high standards, and self-sacrificing agendas. The Full Moon in their 12th house of things that are hidden, illusions, and looking beneath surface appearances may have you intuitively guessing that your most upstanding and seemingly purely motivated associations may be undermining you in some way. Work, health and healing may be areas where this seems highlighted. Something about your own innocence with regard to the kinds of influences that most enhance your life may be coming to an end. You may feel that the alternatives, the outcasts, the revolutionaries, and the progressives now have a better chance of giving you what you need than traditional “safer” choices. You are being challenged this week to rearrange your social life in ways that keep pace with your changing beliefs. You are at the end of the road. You are being encouraged to travel the road less traveled this time around.
Venus is having a major influence now over the direction of your beliefs. Filling your days with things you must do as opposed to things you’d love to do may seem less like the brilliant idea it once was. Challenging your emotional life now may be current family arrangements, responsibilities, and past agreements. Under this full Moon there is the need to free yourself emotionally by initiating some major adjustment or rearrangement on the home-front. The goal is to allow others to take care of themselves as you do whatever it takes to make sure your life is as enjoyable as possible. Social commitments that feel obligatory, friends who interfere with your joy, and groups that no longer stimulate in ways that make your life more exciting may need to be ended. It’s all pretty simple. If it brings you more joy make room for it. If it limits your joy eliminate it.
You may be challenged now to release prideful patterns that protect your ego, maybe where friends or money are concerns. Moving in the direction of higher mindedness and empathy seems healing and it may be easier than you think, especially as the week progresses. Forgiveness is an option at least worth considering. Old fears and beliefs regarding financial security and trust are being activated this week giving you the opportunity to examine those and to decide whether or not something needs to be released. The Full Moon brings to a culmination point your need to be noticed, admired, and respected in the world. Your mindset, possibly overly influenced by traditional definitions of success, may be keeping you emotionally imprisoned. This week it’s time to stage an inner revolt against the past and prevailing social norms. It’s time to take some bold action to free yourself from ego driven complications.
This full Moon may grow your emotions to record size, intensifying cravings for meaning and purpose, higher mindedness, higher education, and communication with those who espouse highly progressive, foreign, and exciting new philosophies and ideas. The need to feel yourself to align with a more exciting future is important. Actions that need to be taken involve releasing yourself from the emotional confinement of low self-worth or deep connections with traditional beliefs about money that keep you stuck in less than exciting circumstances. It is important to listen carefully to the things you say to yourself and to notice repeating patterns that run through your mind whenever you consider taking bold action to move yourself toward something you prefer. If giving yourself a life you can love feels undermined by financial concerns, unworthiness, or lack of trust, this week it’s time to undo that.
This week Venus is working through your immediate environment – through those persons places and things you connect with on a daily basis – to soften some deeply entrenched beliefs about the nature of ending things, of letting go, and going with the flow. The structures of the deepest aspects of your being may be littered with old memories of betrayal, unfair arrangements, situations that victimized you, cravings for intimacy that were blocked, and abuses of power. This week the toxicity begins to overwhelm. The Leo Full Moon brings culminations and endings and possibly some physical symptoms that indicate the need for a psychic detoxification. Venus and the Moon both encourage action that releases you from the need to keep underlying toxic structures in place. This week you have the opportunity to forgive, to empathize, to love, to overlook, and to take the high road without endangering your goals.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
Aquarius reaches the end of the road this week within the realm of relationships. Compromise, cooperation, toning yourself down for another’s convenience, or falling into traps of dependency highlight the extent to which you have sacrificed your own agenda. The problem is that you may be only vaguely aware of the source of your current emotional restriction where relationships are concerned. Hidden fear, perfectionistic leanings, guilt, and social conditioning may keep you locked into some limiting belief about “selfishness” and the value of your own dreams, hopes, and wishes. Taking action this week to make some major emotional adjustment is required. An entirely new arrangement is in order. Actions may center around communication – exposure to revolutionary minds, journaling to uncover your true beliefs, thinking about love and your innate talent in new ways, or saying no to some role you previously agreed to play.
PISCES (February 21-March 21)
This week Pisces IS the driving force for softening resistance, for undermining limiting patterns, for healing, and ending things that serve no further purpose. The challenge now is for you to lead by example. If you are in the habit of preaching one thing and doing another, or pretending that your best advice applies only to others, this week it’s a good idea to reconsider. For you, self-improvement and psychic freedom is highlighted under this full Moon. You already know all the best, most effective methods for making that happen. You need to apply those methods to yourself. It is a way of freeing yourself from the notion that you are doomed to a situation that keeps you victimized by emotionally boxing you in. You hold the keys to the prison gates. While “fellow prisoners” are happy to use your keys to set themselves free, you stay unnecessarily confined. This is the week to change that.
