We’re still in a wibbly-wobbly period. Venus is now out of bounds, leading the heart to some strange places. In some ways it might be good for us to explore, to not be held captive by what we are told we should and shouldn’t like. But at the same time, maybe it’s hard to trust what is right for us, especially as Venus will square vague Neptune during the week. It’s easy to become overly enamoured, to fall in love with love, to get lost in beautiful dreams. Pluto, stationing retrograde, puts pressure on us to retreat to inner space, dig deep, find the truth. We have inner work to do now to ensure that we can enact necessary changes later down the line. And with Pluto stationary, hanging in the air like an echoing toll bell, we have the lunar eclipse in Scorpio which marks an important ending or culmination. It’s time to release old material, repay karmic debts and face fears so that we can get unstuck and take back control. Let your heart be light as you travel the low-lit path. There are surprising riches to be found here.
