Soon, I will be going to the Promised Land, and waking up in an ancient city of of red stone, when Venus walks the Face of the Sun (Tuesday or Wednesday depending on where you are located in the world). Things have been quite intense lately, it seems for almost everyone, and with a Lunar eclipse happening tomorrow June 4th at 7:11 am EDT on the East Coast, Neptune going retrograde later that day, and Venus Retrograding over the face of the sun, it’s all a bit much!
This eclipse might be a bit more intense than others, especially due to the fact that the Sun/Venus opposing Moon are all Square Mars! The Venus Square Mars is particularly close, so if there’s tension in a relationship, it’s possible that one or both of you might decide to end it. Although I usually advise not to made big decisions during an eclipse, sometimes it can’t be helped, so if something ends during this time, it’s important to know that you’re releasing something so that something better can fill its place.
I chose an image of a hallway of mirrors (from the Met actually!) because with so much action happening in Gemini, the sign of the Twins, I think this is an especially good time to look in the mirror, and really evaluate what you see. All relationships start with the relationship you have to your self. And what kind of relationship do you have with yourself? Our culture asks us more often “Who are you with?” rather than “How do you relate to yourself and how does this impact your relationship with others?” Is your relationship about how you both interact and relate to each other or are you just together because the other person will “reflect” well on you and make you look good? Or are you simply with this person because you don’t want to have to be only with your own reflection, that you might not like so well?
Venus continues her Retrograde passage even after her passage in front of the Sun. All through June 27th, we’ll have more than ample opportunity to reflect on our values, especially in relationships and how they reflect on the image we have of ourselves. A question you might ask yourself is “What do I see when I look in the mirror?”
Enjoy your time of reflection, and I will be back posting later in June, hopefully having fully asked myself all of the questions above, and having found some answers!
