The Stars Today: Fire And Earth And A Drop Of Water

"venus in the 12th"

We keep trying oh how we keep trying even when all hope seems lost but I refuse to accept the all hope no hope.

Pema Chodron, who I love, talks about hope causing suffering. Clinging, attachment, to whatever the IT is. Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here but I am embracing hope for Sagittarius Season. Otherwise I’ll die.

Venus is edging past Pluto in Capricorn at the edge of my 4th House so I’m reading it for both 4th and 5th and love feels like death as a friend and I were saying today, by text, to each other, in mutual love and death disaster.

BUT (there’s always a but…) you know what? It’s the combination of Sagittarius and Capricorn in the sky that I am trying to embody: hope + commitment. I admit I kind of suck at it but I am trying.

Let me tell you a thing or two about my chart. Actually, let me tell you a thing or two about my Venus. My Venus is busy. But she’s OUTER PLANET busy. She’s talking to Jupiter nicely okay just fine but Saturn is scowling at her and Neptune is confusing her and she’s locked up in the 12th House and…

Live your chart. That is all. I’ve decided to live my chart. That’s what I mean about commitment. I am going to DO Venus 12. I am going to DO Venus Neptune. And I am going to DO Venus Saturn.

And it can go either way. You can work the high side of your chart or the low side or in between but at least be you. Venus in the 12th is not Venus in the 5th or Venus in the 6th or Venus in the 7th... You can’t give Venus 7th advice to Venus 12th (well, there could be mitigating factors but I am painting with broad strokes here…)

So be mindful. When you give advice. To your friends. To your clients. Know who you are speaking to. And I am saying this to myself too. That the next time I have a chart to look at, I want to do as right as I can by them. (Yes yes I know, I’m hard on myself – Virgo Moon and all 🙂 )

Live your chart. First you have to learn your chart. But then you have to live it. And even if you can’t do the high side of your aspects straight away, you can get it right.

Mercury Retrograde is conjunct the Sun right now in Sagittarius so be prepared to do and undo wherever that nice little fire shows up in your life. Come December and January, things are gonna MOVE.

And here’s a thought: Mars and Venus are trining in Virgo and Capricorn, so I am wondering for those of you with LUV problems, if this trine is making it better or worse. Interesting to think about since trines are beneficial but I think THIS trine is only increasing the desire for the fire and fire brings light and warmth but also burns and destroys.

Oh why can’t it be simple? 


Rarely is it simple in MoonPlutoLand. But let me summarize today’s thoughts:

1. learn your chart

2. live your chart

3. combine hope + commitment to honor Sagittarius and Capricorn

4. breahe

5. breathe

6. breathe

And the Moon is in Pisces. Thoughts?
