Venus has been retrograde since March 4th and it will last until April 15th. This is a time of reflecting on and revisiting matters of love, beauty, pleasures, creativity, money, values, and friendships. The themes started playing out around January 30th and will last until May when we will have more clarity on how to proceed forward.

I previously wrote an article about it, which you can read hereIt will play out differently for everybody depending on how it is affecting your astrology chart (based on exact birth time) and also your Sun sign. Therefore, keep in mind that the Sun sign interpretations written below are based on only part of how Venus is affecting you at this time.

ari-gly-smallAries

This is a time to reflect on how your values, self-worth, money, and relationships shape your identity. You may even be considering changing something about your appearance, just be careful that it is not something you may regret. If unsure, you may want to wait until the last week of April to make those changes.

Aries is an independent sign, and this could be a time in which you ultimately learn to value this aspect of yourself even more so. This could be a result of some changes and/or challenges with your current or potential relationships and partnerships. Reconsidering the way you express yourself in your communications could also be a factor during this period.

Some unresolved wounds or blocks around your self-worth, relationships, and money may also surface, which could require you to have a more realistic perspective. If you are one to spend money impulsively, then this can be a time where you may face some challenges in connection with that.

tau-gly-smallTaurus

Although this can be a very active period for you externally, this is also a time to look at the inner workings of who you are. You could be considering how you value your spirituality as a whole and start to make a better a connection between your physical health and spiritual health.

If you have any self-defeating pleasures you should look at other ways to find joy. Some Taureans may want to get more into meditation or other spiritual modalities that help to go inward more. Selflessly helping others could also be a theme as well.

You may have to revisit some unfinished business in your relationships or regarding money. This is also a time to reflect on any challenges involving your friendships/network. Your personal blocks or your spirituality could create complications around a difference in values with your friends.

gem-gly-smallGemini

This is a time to reflect on the way you value (and are valued) among your friends, colleagues, employers, and social network. If you haven’t been getting enough joy out of your friendships and career, this can be a time when you are reconsidering these areas of your life.

The way you communicate and express yourself in your friendships may also be a theme, calling on you to do so with more love. If you are someone who is very active on social media, this can also be a good time to reflect on or revisit the way you creatively communicate your messages.

There may even be a new or rekindled intimate relationship with someone in your social network. Blocks or wounds in connection with your career could come up, which may be brought to light by some sort of restricting circumstance imposed by a partner or someone who opposes you.

can-gly-smallCancer

This is a time to reflect on your career path and how you are being valued in any current career situation. You may be considering how you can or should be making more money or perhaps doing something else that may be more enjoyable. You may decide to change your direction completely if what you are doing is not in alignment with your values.

There may be a need to overcome any blocks you have around learning to improve your skills. This can help boost your value in the workplace and income potential. Some Cancers may even get into conflicts with coworkers, colleagues, and friends during this time due to differences in perspective.

If you are having challenges paying for any types of education, you may need to work more or put in some other disciplinary effort to fix the situation. If your values are out of sync with your morals and beliefs, then this could be a time to reconsider what it is that you really stand for.

leo-gly-smallLeo

You may have some experiences or considerations around travel, exploration, or education and what value you are getting out of it. Making connections or reconnecting with others in foreign lands (or connected to education) may shift your own values or the way you are valued. Whatever you are experiencing, it could be related to your career and finding your place and voice in the world.  

You could also meet a potential lover while travelling or in school. If you are doing anything related to marketing or publishing your talents, this can also be a good time to reflect on how others view you and what changes you can make to be more aesthetically pleasing.

Some wounds or blocks may come up around intimacy and you may need to get more serious about your creative work or responsibilities around children. If you have been having too much fun you may feel the crunch at this time.

vir-gly-smallVirgo

Money is highlighted for you during this time as you may be reflecting on and reconsidering your contribution to either a relationship, an investment, or a shared/pooled resource. It can even be related to any sort of debt payments, business expenses, taxes, or inheritance.

For many Virgos, this entire year can be expansive in either earning or spending, and during this retrograde consider what changes you could make in order to make things better so that nobody loses. If you are in a relationship/partnership, there could be some problems due to a conflict with values and self-worth. It may bring up some wounds that are somehow connected to challenges with your family or home.

lib-gly-smallLibra

Partnerships and friendships of all types are definitely highlighted for you at this time. This is a time of rediscovering what it is that you truly value in your relationships. Some challenges may come up that could make you reflect on your co-dependencies. You can learn a lot about what you need to change in the way you relate with people and the way you value others.

This can also be a time to revisit things that are enjoyable to you, perhaps creative talents and pursuits, in your day-to-day life. However, if you have been spending too much time doing more pleasurable things at the expense of your responsibilities or your health, then some challenges may surface urging you to be more attentive. If a health issue does come up, it could also be connected to consuming too much sugar or alcohol.

Scorpio

The way you factor in your relationships, pets, beauty, and pleasures into your day-to-day life is up for adjustment. A shift in values could mean changing up your routine or how you manage your health. You may also be reflecting on what you value in the workplace or the way you are valued. Perhaps you are considering making your workspace a lot nicer aesthetically.

Some of you could be making changes in your job/career that requires you to have more interactions with other people. If so, you may have conflicts which might be because you have a lot of depth and don’t like being superficial. There may be some blocks or wounds regarding intimacy, pleasure, creativity, or children that could require a shift in values, self-worth, or the way you manage your money.

sag-gly-smallSagittarius

Romance and intimacy will be very much highlighted for the majority of Sagittarians. This is a period where ultimately you are reflecting on the way you express love and what it is that you value in intimate relationships. It is possible that an old lover may return to your life, or perhaps you may get romantically involved with a friend.

If there is a new love interest, it will likely not be long lasting, and will help facilitate a shift in the way you approach intimacy. If you have children in your life, there may be a shift in the way they fit into your schedule or how you value your time with them.

You could be reconsidering how you use your creativity in sharing your wisdom and skills with others. Your preferences for social events and having fun may change as well. Some problems at home or with your family may surface, which would require more responsibility on your end.

cap-gly-small Capricorn

You may be considering making changes to your home to make it either more beautiful, increase its value, or be more suitable for your love life or children. Perhaps you are moving or recently moved because your previous or current home was not up to par with your tastes. Your values around your home, roots, family, and personal life could go through a reevaluation as well. Some Capricorns may even want to work from home more.

Communication blocks could come up in the way you express yourself and your love to others. It could be connected to negative patterns due to challenging past experiences that need to be resolved. In some cases, wounds around your relationships with siblings, extended family, or people from early childhood may be involved.

aqu-gly-smallAquarius

The way you value and are valued by your siblings and extended family may be a theme at this time. You may even reconnect with old friends or lovers while doing errands. People from your local neighbourhood or early childhood may even come into your life again. Any of these things could help facilitate some sort of closure.

Some Aquarians may be feeling like redecorating their immediate environment. Others may want to get a nicer looking vehicle or communications device. If that is you, be careful that it is not something you may regret later especially if it involves big purchases. If you are unsure, you should wait until the second week of May.

This can be a time to revisit or reconsider any past or current aspirations related to creative writing, teaching, and communication. Learning to communicate and express yourself in a more beautiful way could also be a thing for some of you. Friends and acquaintances may push you to get realistic about your values or any challenges around self-worth and money.

pisces-gly-smallPisces

Reflecting on your finances and resources is going to be a theme for you Pisces out there. What can you do to improve your situation? Perhaps you need to be more efficient and organized with how you manage your resources. Others may need to figure out a way to make more money to keep up with expenses. If you have any self-worth issues, this can be getting in the way of boosting your earning potential.

If you are mutually involved with others financially, you may feel like you are getting the shorter end of the stick and need to renegotiate. Alternatively, you may be considering borrowing or investing money to help you get ahead. Career responsibilities may push you to overcome any blocks or wounds around your identity, appearance, and self-worth.

Full Moon In Aquarius: Rationality & Seriousness

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23rd/24th. It will appear the brightest on the night of the 23rd throughout most of the world and on the night of the 24th in the time zones East of Japan. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began with a New Moon in Cancer on July 9th/10th.

The energies of a Full Moon are strongest in the days surrounding it yet its astrological configurations also play a part over the following two weeks. You may start to see its themes slowly build up after the New Moon prior.

This is a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. It can play out as either a conflict, an integration, or some sort of dynamic between the energies of both signs. The Moon reflects the expression of feeling and emotion while the Sun reflects the expression of ego and conscious self.

We may feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us; with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Aquarius side and others expressing the Leo side. In some cases, Full Moons can also reflect/trigger some sort of change or release.

Full Moon In Aquarius Opposite Sun In Leo

Leo season began 36 hours before the Full Moon and will continue until August 22nd/23rd. This is the sign of self-expression, creativity, love, affection, children, courage, vitality, passion, leadership, generosity, and playfulness. Ruled by the Sun, it is also about shining in our power and being in alignment with what really lights us up and gets us excited.

The negative expressions of Leo can be egotistical, self-absorbed, authoritarian, dramatic, stubborn, jealous, and hot-tempered.  As it is associated with seeking praise and attention, it can be demanding of respect and be boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that.

The Full Moon highlights and brings the energies of the opposing sign of Aquarius into this Leo backdrop. This is the sign of friends, networks, social dynamics, social issues, groups, teams, humanity, and being in the best interest of the collective. This energy is unconventional, idealistic, innovative, progressive, scientific, original, inventive, technological, reforming, and even revolutionary.

Negatively, Aquarius can be overly detached, aloof, unemotional, and very invested in the mind at the expense of the heart. Traditionally ruled by Saturn, it can also be unyielding when it comes to the ideas and perspectives that it has already decided on.

Both Leo and Aquarius have some similarities. They are ‘Fixed’ signs and therefore can both be determined yet stubborn. They are also both associated with originality and authenticity. In Aquarius, this comes from its unconventional and innovative attributes while in Leo it comes from being inspired by its heart centred self-expression.

Full Moon Quincunx Venus, Conjunct Saturn, & Square Uranus

This Full Moon is in a quincunx with Venus which has recently entered Virgo. Our feelings, emotions, needs, or domestic lives may be at odds with friendships, values, finances, pleasure, or matters of love. It can be hard to integrate these areas but being flexible and making adjustments can be the solution.

The Full Moon is moving towards Saturn in the same sign. This can reflect a serious energy and we may be faced with limitations, restrictions, delays, or obstacles. We or others may be emotionally distant, pessimistic, or reserved. However, this can be good for some sort of effort that requires discipline, structure, and orderliness. After the Full Moon period, some of these energies will be strong again on August 1st/2nd.

Following the conjunction with Saturn, the Moon forms a square aspect with the disruptive Uranus in Taurus. This is activating the square between Saturn and Uranus that is happening throughout the year which I’ve covered in previous articles. Themes around ‘old versus new’, ‘restrictions versus freedom’, ‘the status quo versus revolution’, ‘commitments/responsibilities versus liberation’, ‘elder versus youth’, ‘progressiveness versus tradition’ and so forth.

Jupiter Going Back Into Aquarius

Jupiter entered its home sign of Pisces in mid-May for a short stint as it is returning back into Aquarius on July 28th/29th. The planet of expansion, freedom, beliefs, perspective, education, is unrestrained in Pisces and gets to express itself more ideally in this sign. We have seen examples of this as many jurisdictions loosened up covid related restrictions during this period.

With it going back into Aquarius, a traditionally Saturn ruled sign with Saturn currently present there, Jupiter will be more inhibited until late December when it re-enters Pisces again. It’s possible that during this 5 month period may experience more restrictive measures return or new ones implemented. We may also experience this in different ways in our personal lives such as not being able to expand the way we’d like to. However, this might not be noticeable immediately.

The combination of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius (which began last December) can be good for building towards something or planting seeds pertaining to some sort of technological integration, social networking, collective or social pursuits, activism, new scientific approaches to things, and innovation.

Venus Square Lunar Nodes, Mars Opposite Jupiter

Venus will be in a square with the Lunar Nodes which will be strong from July 28th-30th. We may be reflecting on the past and future, or perhaps at a crossroads, when it comes to friendships, love, values, or financial matters. We may need to complete something and address what is holding us back  to help us move on and take a step forward in an evolutionary way when it comes to these areas of life. Venus is in Virgo so therefore discernment, details, practicality, health, organization, or efficiency may be key.

At this time Mars will be switching from Leo to Virgo while in an opposition to Jupiter. We may begin to feel the need to apply ourselves in a way that is more productive, sustainable, healthy, and clean. However, we can overextend ourselves and take on more than we can handle. This can also play out as conflicts around beliefs, perspectives, opinions, or judgements.

Mercury’s Superior Conjunction

Mercury will be in its Superior Conjunction on August 1st/2nd which is in an important phase of Mercury’s cycle with the Sun. From this point onward we may have a better perception around certain things that were seeded or occurred in the previous two months which may also help our momentum forward. .

Circumstances and developments that happen at this time can help us gain more clarity or facilitate necessary realizations to help us make the right decisions and appropriate mental focus. During this conjunction, the Sun and Mercury will be opposing Saturn which can play out as hindrances or the need to be pragmatic as part of this process.

Things To Consider

How can you balance or integrate your personal passions with the needs of the collective? How can you resolve any conflicts between leadership and a team or group? Are you experiencing any challenges or conflict between your heart and intellect? What areas of your life do you need to be more orderly, structured, disciplined, or take more seriously? Is there anything that you need to separate from? How can you apply yourself in a more noble way?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up or ways to approach this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release, it is best to do so after it begins to wane following the peak or during the two weeks afterwards when it is waning before the next New Moon. The exact peak of this Full Moon is at 2:37am Universal Time on July 24th, night of the 23rd. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

In this video I explore how to look in our minds and bodies for resistance towards new solutions and ideas. If we are to create a more thriving world, what has to happen within us? How do we use new and emerging solutions in a pure form, without applying the old dominance or capitalistic stories to them?

It can, very understandably, be hard to imagine something different than what we’re doing now. Especially when we consider we don’t know HOW things would change or what will happen to the current life we’ve built.

What if real global solutions involve shifting our long term plans? How do we gain a sense of comfort and stability in challenges we seek to solve at their core?

Every time I’ve been faced with some pretty big changes I had to make in my life, if I ever sensed resistance in myself, I had to find it in my body as well as navigate it in my mind.  I explain more in the video below.

Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

An internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization, the Institute of HeartMath dedicates itself to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions, and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology, and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with that of their minds at home, school, work, and play.

It’s becoming clearer to many of us that working together with kindness, compassion and acceptance are the missing pieces for resetting humanity’s fast and furious trajectory into separation and division. It’s also becoming obvious that we cannot create solutions from the same consciousness level that’s creating the problems. Raising our consciousness vibration for drawing peaceful solutions is an undertaking that calls for kindness, forgiveness and an inclusive love that respects our differences.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world. For example, when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a certain message. Because the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, it can yield significant data for researchers.

HeartMath has discovered that  emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.

This is very important work, as it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. For instance, did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions, or that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body, and that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed? Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published research papers, and more can be accessed at heartmath.org.

I recently came across an article published by HeartMath titled “Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love” written by Sara Childre, Pres. of HeartMath Institute and Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder. I thought I would post it below for those who are interested.

Vibrations

HeartMath and many systems use the term vibration in reference to the quality of thoughts, feelings, emotions and attitudes that are generated and influenced by our beliefs, memories, choices, environmental stimuli and more. For example, you often hear people say, “I had to leave that office, the vibes were so low it was draining my energy, or, “I felt a lift from being in her positive vibration.”

The vibration of our moods, attitudes, thoughts and feelings can rise and fall throughout the day, based on our actions and reactions to others, ourselves, or to life’s issues. The vibes we emanate to others and to the environment vary, based on our resilience for balancing our mind, emotions and disposition – especially in today’s dynamic emotional climate.

Lower-level vibrations can occur at every turn in connection with frustration, anger, disappointment, sadness, judgment, comparisons and much more. These emotions are part of being human, but it is within our power to shift out of these debilitating feelings into higher vibrational attitudes and perceptions.

An easy way to maintain a higher vibration is to interweave the qualities of our heart in our connections and interactions. These heart qualities include love, care, compassion, kindness, appreciation, forgiveness, and more. Anyone who experiences these qualities knows their power to lift our feelings into a kinder and more stress-free outlook.

Raising Others’ Vibrations

For evidence that the heartfelt intentions of one individual can raise the heart vibration of others, HeartMath cites studies it has conducted. You may be familiar with the study in which a dog’s incoherent heart rhythms became coherently aligned with a boy’s heart rhythms as he radiated intentional love and care to his dog. Go to Josh and Mable to read more.

Science tells us that human beings and all creatures radiate an electromagnetic field produced by the heartbeat. Our feelings broadcast like radio waves through this field. When you are in the presence of a group of friends, family or others, everyone’s thoughts, feelings and attitudes are intermingling in your immediate area — which HeartMath calls the field environment.

Another study, with 40 participants, explored the effects of being in a coherent field environment. The participants were divided into 10 groups of four people who were seated around a table. They were all connected to equipment that simultaneously measured their level of heart rhythm coherence. Three of the participants had been previously trained in the Heart Lock-In technique and were instructed to get into a coherent state at random times unknown by the fourth untrained person. Overall, as the coherent vibration of the three HeartMath-trained participants increased, the untrained person’s coherence level also measurably increased from being in that more coherent field environment.

Poised in Higher Vibrations

When poised in our higher vibration, we experience many benefits. Decisions and solutions flow more easily due to increased access to our heart’s intuitive wisdom; our discernment becomes more inclusive and our choices become clearer and more effective; it gets much easier to deflect frustration, anxiety, impatience and other chronic stress producers that strain our critical thinking and reasoning.

Most all of us feel more self-secure when in our higher vibrational composure, yet it can be harder to maintain in the midst of challenges and ramped up stress. We can learn to lift our vibration to meet challenges by adding heart qualities of conscious care, kindness, gratitude or compassion in our interactions. As these qualities of love move through our system, it lifts our attitudes automatically for the highest way to deal with the situation at hand.

Unconditional love and compassion are among the highest vibrations of love and are not subject to preconditions, limitations, or requirements of others. They serve the greater interest and benefit of all sentient beings and the environment in which they exist. Many people are realizing that unconditional love and compassion are from our higher consciousness potentials with the capacity for healing and attracting solutions for social transformation.

Uncountable numbers of people have experienced the benefits of compassion and more individuals are resonating with this powerful expression of love in these times of robust change. Practicing compassion is something we can do that benefits all, yet it takes heartfelt commitment to anchor this responsibility to the whole of which we are a part.

Summary of Benefits From Raising Our Vibration Levels

  • Increased care and kindness flow more automatically in our connections.
  • We are more clear-minded and self-secure in our choices and actions.
  • Our mind and emotions interact more harmoniously to suit our needs.
  • We deflect common stress triggers – frustration, impatience, intolerance, etc.
  • We are much more resilient and resistant to fears and self-doubt.
  • Our heart’s deeper care is not overridden by our disruptive mind and emotions.
  • The lift in our attitude wards off anxiety, excessive worries and overwhelm.
  • We tend to lift others and the environment when our vibration is up.
  • We are less judgmental and intolerant with others and ourselves, which prevents mega stress accumulation.
  • Lifting our vibration amplifies our intuitive heart feelings for better choices and outcomes.

Simple Exercises to Raise Your Vibration

(Adapted from exercises in the Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart book.)

How to replace lower vibrational feelings, such as sadness, anger, insecurity, anxiety, self-judgment, rejection, etc.

1. Exercise: Find a quiet place where, for a few minutes, you can breathe easily, imagining with each breath that your mind, emotions and body are becoming still inside. In this stillness, desire the uplifting feeling you would like to have, and as you breathe, imagine breathing this new feeling into your being for a while. Imagine you are creating it with your breath.

2. Another Exercise: When feeling low, just sit quietly and imagine radiating love, compassion and stillness into your mental and emotional nature. Self-care is often allowing ourselves to have a low moment without compounding it with self-criticism. When our light is dim, it helps to give ourselves the feeling of compassionate heart warmth that we would give a child or a pet that is infirm. Even if it doesn’t stop the pain, we know it can help energetically. If we feel awkward while trying this, it helps to ask ourselves, “What’s the difference in nurturing ourselves with compassionate intention than taking the vitamins and health foods we consume for self-care?” Or, “Why do we teach kids to put their hand over a hurt area and radiate sunshine from their heart to help it feel better?” We do this because it’s a natural expression of self-compassion, with benefits to their mental, emotional and physical nature.

You can soon feel a difference when doing these exercises, unless extremely challenged. If it doesn’t work the first time, be patient and simply try again later. Being genuine makes a difference. This activates your heart energy. Practicing for a few days in a row strengthens your capacity to reset unwanted feelings and lower vibrations.

Simple exercises such as these can do more to lift your vibration than you may think. Make it fun to consciously reset your vibration throughout the day and watch your spirit lift and the stress accumulation diminish.
