“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” Jane Howard
I grew up watching “Leave It To Beaver” and idealizing the Cleaver’s and their “perfect family home life.” While my childhood was a far cry from the Cleaver’s, I do remember having playmates whose homes I would periodically visit and their lives seemed to me to be perfect comparisons to this fictionalized TV family. I was always rather envious.
The energy that we have around us now, with relationship Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn, fits like a glove for examining and revisiting our familial roots, especially perhaps the early relationship that we had with our parents. This is because Cancer represents mother and the home and family, while Capricorn rules authority figures and traditionally denotes father.
Pluto also symbolizes the subconscious and those emotions and feelings that we have buried deep inside ourselves. The opposition aspect to Venus is affording us a “full opportunity for awareness” into some of our relationship issues from our past, especially those of a more familial (Cancer) nature.
It may also be an ideal time for connecting with the memories of our family members who have transitioned to the other side, as Pluto rules death and rebirth. Some may even want to do some channeling into the spirit world to formally reconnect now.
I also have another take about the significance of this same Venus-Pluto energy now. Venus rules physical beauty and the Moon today is in Venus-ruled Libra, heightening our aesthetic sensibilities.
I think that it may be a cool day to “get real” (Pluto) about how we feel about ourselves, in terms of our physical beauty. We may want to, especially us ladies, look in the mirror and take a good look at the face before us. Do we like what we see reflecting back to us?
I know it’s probably shallow, but I like myself better and feel better about myself when I’m wearing make-up, a form of Neptunian disguise. Today may be a good day to experiment with make-up and maybe come up with a whole new look for ourselves, as Pluto can bring about transformation.
Switching now to the matter of the transiting Jupiter opposite Saturn, as I’ve got to run and I know you do, too. While that aspect was exact yesterday, it is still hovering around us for several days – and IT’S BIG.
I have been doing further meditation on this influence and I really think that it is very good that we have this energy now to tap into, as Saturn is very grounding. It’s a perfect antidote to erratic Uranus getting ready to enter fireball Aries.
With Jupiter-Saturn now, we are receiving crystal clear insight into how we need to practically proceed further with our dreams (Jupiter). We also are suddenly discovering things (dreams) that no longer work for us, for one reason or the other, and that discovery can be very liberating for us, as we know now where to put our energies.
Too, some of the dreams that we may need to walk away from now, we may be able to revisit and rekindle them later. So, we should not despair. But, we should know clearly now what is the best road for us to take at the present moment due to this sobering, but enlightening Jupiter-Saturn influence.
Regarding the collective, I also believe this same Jupiter-Saturn aspect is going to end up somehow being very good for understanding fully the ramifications of the Gulf oil leak (Jupiter in Pisces) and how to more effectively deal with it in the future, as far as crafting solutions (Saturn) to this crisis.
Also, I think innovative Uranus at the end of Pisces (sea, oil) is going to be of further help here in achieving this end. Let’s hope so, anyway. It’s a very dire, tragic situation.
Enjoy your Monday. Seal the day with a warm memory from your past.
