Passions run higher and move deeper today so be especially careful about what you do and how you express what you need. Another busy day with Mars Squaring Jupiter and Venus moving into the sign of Scorpio.
Mars rules the desires and the actions we take to obtain them. Jupiter rules our principles which should guide our desires by defining how we relate to our world. But with a square aspect matters can be pushed to extremes. We might act too selfishly or resort to playing the role of victim to get our way.
Always with a square we are faced with a challenge, we are challenged by a choice. The waning square says what we face is a challenge to let go of an old way of meeting our desires. Jupiter in Pisces guides us to relate in a more compassionate and inclusive way. But Mars in Sagittarius believes it is "Right", that it is acting with "Truth" on its side already.
Even though we may be "right", even though we might have "the law" on our side, Jupiter will ask us if we are merely acting within the letter of the law (of life). Instead Jupiter will remind us that we must act in accord with the Spirit of the Law instead. Right action is guided and informed by compassion, kindness and forgiveness.
Venus moving into Scorpio shifts our sense of value to a deeper plane. We want to feel one with another. We want the passion which comes from true union. But moving closer to another involves risk. We must overcome our fear of rejection and loss. To come together more closely requires trust and openness, but how do we do that? We must create a space of shared intimacy for us to meet in. It is a space that celebrates our vulnerability as a testament to our strength not of our weakness.
With Venus in Scorpio the joy of union is the prize we seek now....to experience it requires us to bridge the mystery of our separation and discover that we are one in spirit. The illusion of the physical body is separation. But we need to feel now the truth that we are connected, that we are always part of a greater life. Put aside the fear of loss and walk the path of life....together.
