I am thrilled that Mercury retrograde ends on Friday. My apologies for this week's Celestial Insights podcast. Vesta was at 29 Gemini, not Leo. I hope you understood the context. I recorded on the day Jupiter stationed retrograde while trining the trickster transiting my third house of communication. Jupiter is more focused on the big picture than the details. Despite listening back, I did not catch my error. Yikes!
As we blaze back over the path that Venus in Leo has traversed for the third time, I am still unpacking her retrograde through Leo. Venus rules beauty, pleasure, money, women, and relationships. Fiery Leo is a joyful, expressive, and creative sign. Retrogrades bring delays, reversals, and the collapse of anything contemplated. It was a loud transit and events will continue to unfold until Venus enters Virgo on October 8.
High -road Virgo brings order to chaos by utilizing what is essential and discarding the excess. Organizational skills, attention to detail, and healthy habits are priorities. Shadow Virgo is perfectionistic and self-punishing for even the most minor mistakes. Beyonce is the ultimate Virgo; her talent and work ethic is unmatched. She truly is an Alien Superstar. The cleverness of her lyrics, the precision of her routines, and the intricate detail of her costumes embody the Priestess energy on steroids. Her Venus-Pluto conjunct in Libra explains why she is so mesmerizing to the masses. It is a joy watching her daughter Blue Ivy build her skills on the world stage. The 8 of Pentacles card in the tarot is associated with the Sun in Virgo. Repeated practice builds mastery. She is getting better and better over time. Blue Ivy has her natal Mars in Virgo.
Carol Tebbs's, my chart rectification teacher, analysis of Joe Biden's natal chart puts his midheaven (MC) at 22 Virgo. The MC is the cusp of our tenth house of status, reputation, and work. This New Moon is trine Uranus, which falls into his natal sixth house of toil. It was announced today that the House of Representatives will launch an impeachment inquiry. The Jupiter Uranus conjunct at 21 Taurus on April 20, 2024, is precisely opposite his Mercury at 21 Scorpio in his 12th house of endings, tribulation, and anguish of the mind. Mercury rules his career and is a signifier of children. Will the transit bring freedom or a shock? We will see.
This Virgo New Moon is one of the best lunations of the year. It creates a smooth grand trine in Earth with Jupiter/ Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. If you feel in a holding pattern, this an excellent time to set intentions to get unstuck and manifest your desires. Take action to improve your health, get organized, or be of service. Even the smallest efforts in a positive direction will bring bounty. Join the New Moon workshop to delve deeper into what this transit will mean for you. I will do as many hot-take natal chart readings as I can.
