One of the most prominent aspects of the astrological sky is the Venus retrograde taking place in Gemini this month. This energy pulls us back and almost creates a sense of nostalgia for things since passed. We should be aware of the human mind’s ability to ‘re-write’ our stories and use these energies as a reframing tool to explore in-depth how we view and why we view the past in the way that we do. Once we have gathered this information it becomes easier to understand where we are coming from in this present moment, helping us stay mindful to our ever-present unfolding.
Old friends or relationships can resurface at this time, past relationships or people you considered not a part of your life anymore may come back into your physical or mental spaces. This can be a great time to re-work some aspects of your local community through leadership and similar qualities you naturally possess! Stay mindful of the deeper emotions, stresses, and unforeseen obstacles that might be affecting others right now. Your awareness of these energies allows you to make the best decisions for everyone involved.
Someone may be calling into question your personal value system or ethics. You know who you are and who you want to be, stand strong and true in the knowledge. This is a great month for inviting another person into your personal spaces. Maybe sharing your thoughts, belief system, or spiritual practices with a close friend. The comrade created can feel holistic and healing, it will also provide a sense of validation in uncertain times.
Spiritual and soul exploration are available to you at this time, especially in regard to how you relate to others. Love is medicine for you right now; community and being together help you maintain a sense of warmth and presence. A harmonizing of the left and right sides of the brain bring you into perfect center. Meditate on this idea and see how you feel when you focus on one hemisphere of the brain versus the other!
You are not necessarily a fighter, but neither will you take things lying down. You are a very strong zodiac sign that is able to accept and work through rather than suppress how you really feel. This type of authentic living is very strong with you this month. You will feel it in your heart, you will feel it in the way you learn, study, and mentor others. Just by being yourself you are a teacher to others and a spiritual warrior of authenticity.
A craving for socialization is very strong this month! You want to be in the same physical presence as those you love. This may or may not be an option at the moment depending on where you live in the world. Work through this tension by meditating and exercising. Sit with the uncomfortable energy rather than denying it exists. This will help you integrate and gain mindful mastery over your emotions.
Passion is growing in your approach to relationships. You are much more vocal this month and openly intense in your partnerships, especially romantic ones. This passion and desire to live the life you want is easily communicated. Taking physical action steps towards your interests, goals, and dreams in life is recommended, especially if they are career related in some way. Good things are happening for you!
You invite in an expanded sense of consciousness right now and are becoming more and more comfortable with your own personal belief system. When you look at how you organize your world, you may decide there are some changes you want to make. Go with this! Restructuring a worldview can be a great challenge, but can yield incredible results that align with your inner self.
When you decide on something your mind is pretty set, unless you are presented with pretty strong facts to convince you otherwise. This month, you will be presented with some new information that illuminates an area of thinking you haven’t really given your full attention. Meditate on these new ideas, let them wash over you. Try not to overthink but instead absorb on a cellular level what is being shown to you.
