Let Courage Eclipse the Hurt

During June’s two Eclipses we will need to rely on the spiritual discipline we began developing during January’s Eclipse. Early in June, we’ll need to take a deep breath and allow our inner warrior to give us the courage to be authentic, especially when we feel defensive. Introspection can give us honest and deliberate communication rather than hurting those we love with our easily aroused temper. Later in June, self-control will also be needed to help us be creative instead of indulgent in our search for pleasure and release. We are continuing our theme for 2020 that we need to clear away old habits and like the phoenix, rise from the ashes, free from destructive attitudes and ready to create a brighter, and kinder, future.

The Full Moon always brings a tension between our feelings and our thoughts. When you add the power of an Eclipse, you get that tension echoing until the next Lunar Eclipse. The best thing I can say about this one is that we have another Lunar Eclipse on July 5th so we are only stuck with its conflicts for a month.

Venus usually takes less than a month to travel through a sign. With 6 weeks of retrograde this summer, we have Venus in Gemini from April 3rd to August 7th. That’s 3 extra months to focus on how we talk about what we love. Venus rules our relationships, the desire for harmony and our personal finances so be aware how your language shapes your reality in each of those areas. During our retrograde period, from May 13th to June 25th, spend time looking at how you used to talk and think about your old loves including your self-love. What you value or love is easily represented by where you spend your money so look at how past relationships have affected your finances. If you’ve been ignoring an issue around finances or affection in order to keep the peace, you’ll find yourself paying a high cost. Think of what lessons you learned 8 years ago when Venus last went retrograde in Gemini. What would you have told your past self to help them through May and June of 2012?

Mars’ fiery nature can’t burn clean in watery Pisces so you’ll find it hard to clearly express your rage through the emotional storms coming. Mars and Venus are at odds creating sexual frustration and the urge to indulge at the expense of harmony. Upset about the sacrifices demanded instead of requested, Mars pushes us to take the current talk in the worst possible light.

Neptune is right there with Mars in Pisces making it easy to believe stories about the fights happening. This can cause us to put our faith in the wrong things if we allow only belief to make our decisions. This is also going to strengthen the power of those who see the world as competition that requires aggressive action rather than cooperation.
