The trine that will be in place between Venus and Zeus through the 6th of May is a good place to start today. Both are in Air, and both have a big stake in coming across well to the opposite sex (or to the sex in which they’re interested!) Venus, of course, is anima oriented, and Zeus is animus aligned, and this means that the way one will approach this aspect interaction will be keyed to one’s own primary viewpoint. Now, what does it promise?
A trine is ‘easy,’ meaning the two energies will co-operate without any effort; in this case, the woman, beauty, assets, earnings, what’s of worth, envy, jealousy, greed, luxuries, what’s reproductively oriented, the cost of what we want, will be caught up with the man, the ambitions, the Will, the lust, the desire, the wound of the ‘lost’ father, what one wants without regard to cost, and this interaction could be the start of any number of ‘new’ concepts, ideas, mental outlooks, relationships, or other connections (Air, networker Gemini + partnership/ relationship Libra).
I guess I’m saying: watch out what gets going, starting about two days ago, right through the 6th, as the spark of contact may create something larger than the two parts from which it begins. We could see a lot of babies conceived, passionate acts perpetrated, lusts exposed, and episodes of falling in love, with any variety of person, thing, or goal. Earth and Pallas are exactly conjunct; if we can stay tuned to the material reality, aware of the actual circumstances of our lives, we won’t be swept into something inextricable by the romance (Venus) and lust (Zeus) of the influencing aspect. Uranus is in the 29th degree of Pisces, pushing us in the most nebulous way to express our most unique qualities, and the pressure to act up, show off, or make a splash will squeeze the subconscious and perhaps propel us forward when at another time we might be content to sit back and let events take their course without such strenuous, even desperate, input.
This is one of the most important influences imo for the coming few days, and each of us should consider how this influence might work itself into our lives. Be prepared: we could be setting up a situation where we receive rewards for going after what we want, where we create something new and bigger than the current elements might imply on their own, where the cost for our ambitions or lusts is not taken into account, and/ or where we change irrevocably our relationship to something or someone else, and the influence of what happens right now could stretch far into the future. Good luck everyone!
Once again, I’d like to express my gratitude to those who are supporting the new issue of ECLIPSE. All who purchase the Spring issue are invited to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with their birth data (one person only; you can submit info for a friend or relative instead of yourself if you choose) and a few salient details (are you a mother? an artist? do you work with or have a special connection to nature? have allergies or digestive ailments? are power relationships a ‘big deal’ in your life? do you negotiate successfully within your life, or do you tend to negotiate away power or responsibility?) and I’ll provide a personal portrait of Ceres at work in your natal chart. This will likely be comprised of a few paragraphs discussing its placement, its relationship to other placements, and the possible role her energy plays in your life, the positives and pitfalls. If you’d prefer, you may instead choose Zeus (star of the first issue, and a better fit for most male readers). Thank you for all your support!
