“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Retrograde Venus (the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and money) is in inferior conjunction with the Sun in Gemini today (at 1:44 pm), denoting the midpoint cycle of Venus’s current retrograde cycle as well as a symbolizing a new beginning in the Sun and Venus relationship. This conjunction also marks the transition from Venus as an evening star to a morning star.
Archetypally, sweet Venus tends to work as a harmonizer or balancer and retrograde in the communication sign of Gemini, there is potentially more promise now for soothing words or gestures to be able to work their special healing magic to fill what was perhaps an earlier void or lack of connection. This Sun-Venus alignment generally rallies us to put more energy into such things as being friendly or outgoing as the relationship realm is something that becomes much more vital or important now to who we are and how we see ourselves.
Too, with Venus retrograde, it could be that we have important new insights about the overall nature of our relationship or social or material needs as well as maybe glean a better understanding or perspective of what it is that we genuinely value or require in our lives order for us to feel truly happy or at least more emotionally content.
On another level, Sun-Venus aspects often help to generate more ease or flow in financial matters and may coincide with an increased desire to be surrounded by things of beauty, luxury, or objects of art.
The Waxing Moon is also in probing Scorpio, all day, suggesting our emotions are more intense at this time and our perceptions are potentially sharper. Often when Luna is here we are looking to become more fully engaged with or impassioned by our experiences. There can also be more ability or readiness for transformation. On a higher level, Scorpio represents a phoenix rising from the ashes.
“Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation.” Alan Cohen

On This Day in History: On June 3, 1965, astronaut Edward H. White became the first American to “walk” in space during the flight of Gemini 4. White floated free outside the spacecraft, tethered to it, for approximately 20 minutes. Gemini 4 would also be the first multi-day (four-day) space flight by the United States, designed to show that it was possible for humans to remain in Outer space for extended lengths of time.

Astrologically, that day, expansive Jupiter, the empowering Sun, and the future-oriented North Node were conjunct in mobile, environmentally-curious Gemini and all were square to breakthrough Uranus, the planetary ruler of space travel and technology. Revolutionizing Uranus was also conjunct transformational Pluto in perfecting Virgo, the zodiacal sign which is associated with tangibly improving our skill set or expertise.
Hope it’s a good one! Be safe and well.
