“Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Moon continues in “fantasy” Pisces, during the day, and is void-of-course (without major aspect) until its entrance into “initiating” Aries later this evening (8:37 pm EDT), suggesting that we wrap up or attend to unfinished business, during the daytime hours, especially activities that allow for the full employment of our creative imagination.
Relationship Venus is also forming an inspiring, 72-degree link (quintile) to “idealistic” Neptune, the ruler of Pisces. This influence helps to awaken more of our heartfelt, tender impulses and it also tends to fuel our “need for fiction,” especially in the romance department. With “dreamy” Venus-Neptune aspects, we are characteristically more willing to overlook and to forgive, and we prefer not to focus upon anything unseemly. Our boundaries with others can also become more blurred, as our compassion is strengthened and our ego needs take a back seat.
Additionally, the Gemini Sun’s square to “wounded warrior” Chiron in Pisces today also acts to raise our sympathy level up a notch and makes us more capable of noble, selfless deeds.
Too, as I am writing this blog, it is being reported that Ratko Mladic, Europe’s most-wanted war crimes fugitive, was arrested today in Serbia (WSJ.com). It could be that this Sun-Chiron influence can also help us to “ferret out evil,” or perhaps galvanize us to deal more with “suffering” (Chiron). When Chiron’s ray is stoked, there is often a “suffering” component to it on some level. When Chiron first entered Pisces, for instance, I remember we had the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (Pisces rules oil).
On a shadow level, Pisces is also the zodiacal sign that is linked with extremism, terrorism and hidden factions. It is a more complex sign. Embracing both the “saint” and the “sinner.”
Famous Birthdays May 26th: Sally Ride (60), Stevie Nicks (63). BTW, Stevie Nicks has relationship Venus in the mothering sign of Cancer exactly square to her “fantasy” Neptune in partnership Libra, giving her a tendency to always want to see the best in others. It also makes her more capable of self-sacrifice, especially where romance is concerned. Sometimes, too, with Venus-Neptune, we are attracted to more “wounded” types that we can help nurse back to health.
Venus-Neptune is also often a major artistic influence (Neptune rules music) and, of course, Stevie is a divine (Neptune) singer and performer, who nurtures the world (Venus in Cancer) through her extraordinary music. She is also “pioneering” in her approach with her Aries rising.
Enjoy your Thursday!
