MESSAGE FOR EVERYONE: Think back a year. Did you meet someone from the past or crash into a person you thought might be your long lost soul mate? Jupiter is passing over a sensitive point that will bring the issue up again to be resolved once and for all.
So far, no....
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
The strangest element in your character is not about making money or having money. That’s a natural gift you have for drawing it to you, one way or another. It’s the fact that no matter what you do or how t you try to avoid the subject, money is a primary factor in whatever drives you to search for greater freedom and enjoyment. Maybe we could say that about everybody as well, buyt in this case, specially now, the issues of material prosperity is stronger than ever. Try to remain centered and clear at this time, mainly because you do no want to allow old events, situations and circumstances to color your judgment in making decisions. This means neither overestimate or understimate the outcome. And yes, right now, it is all about the money.
I....don't even know what to make of what is going on right now. I have been asking for help with this and this week I have gotten no's from everyone, citing money. It's going to be all my problem alone as to whether or not it happens, and I'm not even sure I can swing it. It seems very close to failure if it's all on me here. I don't know.
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
Let’s get at least one paranoid notion out of the way right now.
The Universe is NOT conspiring with all your secret enemies to bring about your downfall. In fact, the opposite is happening. Although you’ve got good reason to wonder why so much lightning has been striking all around you, your life is actually opening up in ways you never dreamed it could our would. It’s just all a hell of a lot to accept at once.
Contrary to doomsday predictions, the world did not end in 2012. The events of that year have left an indelible mark on your life for a long time to come.
The astronomy and astrology behind it: A transit of Venus to the Sun which will not occur again until well into the next century. It was truly a beautiful sight if you happen to catch it. It was a royal event to be sure, a rare and stunning cosmic happening. In fact, it is only in April 2013. That we can look for some clarity and resolution, mainly because, as the saying goes, it’s’ not really over until the fat lady sings. And the fat lady has sung.
Think back. In your life the transit of Venus of 2013 marked a moment of unusual warmth.
The retrograde aspect of this Venusian transit brought people from the past, some from the remote past, individuals you perhaps hadn’t seen in a long, long, long time, and maybe had once even deeply loved. It was a time for old flames and even the embers of tiny cinders to once again be rekindled–in some cases for good–in others just a reminder of what had passed away. You may be one of those persons who thought that had found their long lost lover, but alas! It may have turned out to be the finishing or end of a cycle. That is what we are seeing when we examine the events of April 2013:the end of a major cycle In relationships.
So where were YOU last June?
OMG THE MAYANS WERE RIGHT!! Their calendar said it. It wasn’t the end of the world. It was, however, the end of a cycle.
It’s just that we interpreted the whole end-of-the-calendar thing totlally in a typically messed up way. To be fair, however, it’s always easier to understand predictions the morning after. Forget for a moment the huge sociological/global shift that is changing world political alliances and power structures forever. Just look at your own life.
Who would’ve thunk it? Just imagine. It goes to show you. The only thing you can predict is that nothing lasts forever. That’s for damned sure.
Sad to say, though, that in some instances it was a tragic kissoff, a bitttersweet ending to what had been or maybe could have been one of the greatest love stories ever told., and not necessarily romantic, either. Some hearts did swell in happiness and pride., but, as is always the case with astrological configurations, the condition of your natal and progressed Venus, the distance between Venus and the Sun, when it started, when it ended if it did, will ultimately decide the outcome. Some hearts were broken as the events surrounding the transit of Venus conspired to create ruptures, separations, and permanent endings to alliances that had gone as far as they could go .
The retrograde of Venus technically ended late in June of 2013June, but the effects lasted much longer. In fact, it was the change of direction of Venus that changed the directions of many relationships that had flourished sin long before and during the approach of the Venus transit, especially heating up during the first half of 2012.
Even in the face of inevitable separation, it is a naturally occurring human phenomenon to hold on as long as possible to some relationships, in order to avoid the inevitable shift arising when a major cycle comes to an end. You get a job, you leave a job, you move away from your parents or loved ones as you come to understand a pattern or relationship that has grown stale. You face the fact that from this point on there is no going back.. Maybe someone disappoints you. You disappoint someone else. You learn that sometimes love is only possible at a gret distance. People grow. They change. The move away. They go in search of other rainbows. They even die. Relationships move to another level. You divorce. You marry.
The retrograde transit of Venus across the Sun indicates that relationships must now exist on another, higher plane, marked by a new boundary.
Why is April 2013 significant?
That is the moment when Jupiter passes over the zodiacal area point of that Venus transit. Memories will resurface. The people themselves may reappear. Whether that turns out to be a joyful or painful experience depends on the consciousness of the parties involved.
Those damned Mayans. Weren’t they a trip, though? How in heck did they know a major cycle was going to end for you? With their wheels
and their numbers and their weird calculations—how in blazes could they sit around their campfire and possibly have come up with what would turn out to be such an intensely personal event?
Awakened to love by arrival, deepening or loss it. This changes the course of your life.
It leaves you either bitter or in a transcendent state. You learn to appreciate your luck, or deny reality completely. It enhances your creativity or paralyzes you. You communicate more richly, or act out childishly. You are enlivened byprofound awareness of all your emotional patterns of behavior, or you simply turn away from the light and flail around in wallow in flagrant, defensive, grandiose fantasy.
With Jupiter comes the power to heal what is broken, shattered or wounded. Jupiter brings in a wave of kindness, perspective, wisdom, open-mindedness and the curiosity to learn and grow from experience.
You could find yourself avoiding your feelings about the events of 2012 and displacing them onto one distraction after another. You could compensate for feelings of loss or rejection, failure or painful memory by trying too hard to prove how resilient you are. In order to deny the depth of what really happened, you could cover up deeper feelings by exhibiting a zany form of hysterical gaiety or friendliness you don’t really feel, like laughing at a funeral or pretending it’s all in the past.
It isn’t. In April of 2013 it’s right there in front of you all over again.
If all the people involved are hip (and we mean ALL the people involved), this can be a period of great resolution and liberation. Unfortunately we are not all in the same place mentally, spiritually or psychologically at the same time. You may, therefore, have to resolve all this within yourself, hopefully without the goofy backslapping or political hypocrisy that passes for relationships.
Eventually, however, we must bow to the great force of Inevitability, adjust to new circumstances and emotions, move on, open up to mew experiences, and look forward to what adventure awaits you.
Whatever you do, don’t blame the fat lady for singing.
