We find ourselves confronting and addressing the more transpersonal aspects of our lives this week, primarily involving our friends and communities. But these matters directly tie into our close relationships and how we might evolve them into more ideal and individuating experiences within our relatable collective. And if the sensitive issues from our past traumas emerge, we have opportunities to work through them to find abundant liberation from their stranglehold on our psyches and emotions.

Today we seek to understand and awaken to the myriad possibilities and opportunities available to us if we just can get out of our own way to listen carefully. Our pliable minds can be stretched and expanded to grasp perspectives we had not considered before, helping to birth revelations that can fortify a more progressive understanding of the world in which we live.
While possibly contemplating a more evolved perspective of our world, we must reconcile whether that perspective can be applied on a practical level so that it can be integrated into our daily lives.

Honoring the breakthroughs we may have had last week around the Full Moon, when Sun and Chiron were conjunct in Aries, this is a good time to reflect upon how we have grown to better understand the transformation we are going through. If we can sit with our inner light to look around a bit at the healing that took place, we may find more fodder for our mastery.
This mastery we seek can feel strong today, perhaps driving us passionately to make positive headway in its evolution. Confidence can elude us in so many ways, emotionally, psychologically, or physically, so remaining conscious of the failures and blockages experienced in the past should be addressed with forgiveness and compassion towards ourselves if we are going to overcome them and look to the future for success and mastery.

Our relationships may get a little more playful and talkative today as Venus enters social Gemini, but we should also be prepared for there to be some open dialogue about things we may have pushed under the rug. The positive side of this is that we could be feeling a lot more willing to talk about things we have been avoiding. It’s not to say everything can come out, but at least perhaps some talk about how things could be better moving forward.
When Sun basks in the foreground of Jupiter in Aries, there can be enormous optimism, confidence, and drive to more fully express ourselves and take life by the horns. This means it is a wonderful day to take the initiative to speak up and be heard. If there is anything that we have not quite felt ready to do, the vigor to do it is upon us today. Put down your reservations and pick up the microphone! Just be conscious of the possibility for over-confidence or putting your foot in your mouth!

The conceivably sticky mud created by the early morning Moon-Mars opposition in these earth and water signs can signal situations we might regret getting ourselves into. The sensitivities of Mars in Cancer can be touchy and aggravated by the rigid Capricorn Moon’s demands for control and order. Sometimes we get flustered by the little things, so stepping back to see the bigger picture and choosing our battles wisely is a good idea. Fortunately, this opposition is waning by the time most of us awaken in the morning.
As the day lingers on, we will hopefully find our tempers cooling and our communication skills honing themselves into more agreeable concrete terms and conditions. Our focus can shift to laying down solid plans regarding our finances and our sustainability. Take advantage of this earthly trine to accomplish what is necessary for our security.

Hashing out the feasibility of what we had set out to do on Tuesday during the Sun-Jupiter conjunction can prove to be a challenge, especially if we are working together with a partner to manifest it. But sticking to our guns and not backing down from what we believe in and are confident can succeed should be our priority. Compromising should be carried out diplomatically and methodically, making sure both sides of the coin get a say in the best course of action.
This is an amazing day to ceremoniously invoke a more vested higher purpose for our soul’s growth. We often hear the word “higher” alongside words like consciousness, purpose, vibration, learning, education, etc. To understand more thoroughly what I mean by “higher purpose,” let me put it this way: a more meaningful and altruistic purpose. Aquarius wants to raise the standards of living to improve the lives of the collective by researching and revealing the truths of life. The truths revealed help forge a more intelligent and altruistic civilization. How will you be helping?

Today’s alignments between Venus, Saturn, and Moon’s Nodes create a pivotal moment for our relationships. The karma, communication, boundaries, rules, resources, sexuality, and sustainability of our relationships all come into blatant focus. The boundaries in our lives have already been shifting into our field of vision lately, but as Venus locks into this configuration today, we will likely find ourselves talking with others about the rules of our engagements.
Have the rules been broken? Are secrets still tucked away? Can we figure out how to sustain what we have with ample sincere affection, sensuality, and healthy sexuality? Let’s talk about what we want and how to make it last!

Moon in Aquarius sextile Jupiter and Sun in Aries
These effective sextiles allow us to explore the ways in which we can improve the conditioning of our minds and desires. The raw, vital, and expressive influence of Sun and Jupiter in Aries sits down for an interview with the reflective, eccentric, and idealistic Moon. Hopefully they can concoct a workable plan for a more enlightened future within a few hours.
Maybe our most ideal course of action would be to invest in our friends and community with a little more commitment and time. We can lose sight of the more important things in life by distractions that tempt our beaten down souls with fleeting and frivolous elations. Let’s experience those elations with others and call them relations, and while doing so we may just invent the next means to creating a more inclusive and unifying community.
Though we may find ourselves stuck in the mud, struggling to accept the plight of our journey, we are rewarded with a growing hope for the future of our relationships, friendships, and communities. Keeping a close eye on our compassionate intentions will help keep us on a steady tack towards the redemptive islands of our dreams. Have you refined your dreams lately?
