“Over the next three weeks especially, with Venus now retrograde through Scorpio, we are undergoing a powerful personal and relational renewal which occurs every year and a half. Venus, as ruler of this New Moon, initiates us on our quest into the darkness, to confront the obscure and discarded to find peace, love, and acceptance for what is…
This New Moon can stand as the gateway to the deepening of both love and passion for those commitments and relationships we’ve established close bonds to. Venus’ retrograde station can amplify our desire to love and be loved, sensitizing any woundedness or heartbreak.
A most significant step in life, as it is with this New Moon, is learning to trust our wounds, pain, fears, and anxieties as teachers. There is great wisdom in the darkness, despite the western world’s obsessive subjugation of it. There is freedom and liberation in encountering the taboo and those things despised. We are not separate from the things we fear or do not understand. We have merely lost our connection to the totality of our truth.
With this lunation, step back, sink in, and listen. Move beyond the comfortable prison of your personal and subjective perspective… We may have to move into some uncomfortable places to grow, but we will learn to value and appreciate a new reality (both within and without) that we never really noticed before.”\
