"After a heavy storm, a rainbow." The planets combine today to deliver signs and messages that reassure us of better times. Light returns to infuse our lives with rich color and blessings, as Venus moves to this degree in the sky.
The question today is whether we are mentally still in the heavy storm or out into the light of the rainbow or vacillating between.
Given that the Moon is in Pisces opposing the Black Moon and the Sun is making exact opposition with Pluto today, stormy weather may roll our way at times. The combination of these aspects increases potential for projection our own and others' shadow sides today. The "Catalysts for Change" list gives detail.
Though today's energetics contain elements that can cause people to act from their most fearful and insecure selves - in the ugliest of ways - we understand that what is happening is transformation out of darkness into light. When people behave unkindly, hurtfully, or selfishly, they are operating from fear and a sense of powerlessness. Attempts to blame others always accompanies this, but it is merely projection -- a poor coping skill that devolves into power and control issues. (When Pluto is involved, power issues often come in to play. With Pluto in Capricorn, we add control to the mix.)
The highest objective of the energy is to clear illusions and fears. As this happens, a rainbow of options opens. New experiences beckon. All of this is building toward the next New Moon, the New Moon in Cancer on July 15. A torrent of opportunities will flood the field of consciousness. Today, part of the way is being paved.
No matter what the skies us bring today, let's remember to be on the lookout for the rainbow. Let's watch as new perspectives, opportunities, and destinies arise. Let's stand reassured. Here comes the Sun.
(Note: The Sun will make exact opposition with Pluto at 11:20 am ET/3:20 pm UT. The Moon will make exact opposition with the Black Moon overnight at 3:30 am ET/7:30 am UT.)
