VENUS RX IN CAP
Today the Sun is on our Galactic Center. Deep wisdom emerges here, as we annually pass through this place on our way to solstice.
But the biggest news of the day is: Venus, in evening star mode, has officially begun her rx journey, escorted by her dark prince Pluto, to the gates of the underworld. During the next six weeks, she will visit one of her star points, and emerge on the other side as the morning star. Over an eight year period, Venus’s very regular retrograde pattern creates a perfect five pointed star, each point being revisited when Venus joins the Sun in an inferior (rx) conjunction. The star points occur in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, and Capricorn (this one).
Relationship karma, obsession, passion, deep sexuality and the marrow of how and who we love all rise to the fore now. This is a time to visit the boneyards of relationships past and honor/release anything still lingering in the attic of your psyche. This is reinforced by maverick healer Chiron stationing direct at the same time.
Each of us will make a vision quest over the next six weeks that will require a descent into empty fertile darkness, to claim what is truly ours, on the path of the soul.
Love, sex, touch, what you value, your relationship to money, the economy, all of this will be featured on this quest, and I’d hazard to guess on the world’s stage as well.
What is your love language?
Do you know the love languages of all your primary connections? This time is an opportunity to learn; it’s time to start to speak with each other in this way. We will always go through difficult patches in love, but with this tool we can soothe and reconnect.
Venus in Capricorn naturally creates a beautiful, alchemical, distillation of the deepest truths of love, and in retrograde mode, within range of Pluto, this will be as deep as it gets. Let her lead you on this labyrinthine passage through the solstice points, to emerge as the refreshed morning star early in the New Year.
Blessed Venus retrograde journey to us all!
