If this year were a ride on a Ferris Wheel, this week would be the moment at the top, both glorious and a little trippy.
Tuesday is the culmination of the massive planet Jupiter and ethereal planet Neptune in watery Pisces. Inner dreams and visions feel very real. At the top, everything seems possible as details blur.
It is a perfect time for allowing romantic feelings to swell and carry you to ecstatic heights of joy and delight!
It is NOT, however, a good time for investments or business deals to be made because Neptune can delude us with its diaphanous veils. Invoke your Virgo. Make sure your glasses are on or your contacts in and reread paperwork twice before you sign!
But the wave of compassion and care is the strongest element of this conjunction. It has been in our atmosphere since late February and it's presence will be felt till mid-May when Jupiter will enter Aries.
Then compassion can become action, so hold onto those dreams and visions. The future forms itself from them!
Culmination number two this week is the full moon on Saturday in the sign of Libra. The impulses planted in Aries on April First are reflected back now in the mirror of the Moon. Balance is sought and thoughtful ordering of relationships.
And this is Quan Yin's moon, the tender but powerful Chinese goddess who radiates compassionate care for all those who suffer or need healing. Protector and advocate of those in need of help, it is her warmth and wisdom that infuse the light of this Full Moon.
May we receive her insights and loving concern and put them to use in our own individual ways for balance and justice in our social connections so the world holds more space for joy and delight and romance!
