“Flowering Understanding and Love”

Understanding, full moon, horoscopes, weekly horoscopes, Venus, Taurus, Sagittarius, Jupiter, Libra, direct

The Buddha spoke about love coming from understanding, according to Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh in his captivating book, Old Paths, White Clouds. This idea appears to have much merit, if we pay attention to this week’s planetary line up, especially Friday’s full moon.

For the first time in eight months, loving Venus comes back to one of her home places, Taurus. It doesn’t usually take her that long in a year. But love, for Venus in Taurus, can become more about what makes you feel comfortable, safe, and pleased. You can be happily in your own groove and be oblivious to the bad that’s happening with others. It could be one of those, “Let them eat cake” moments. Those often don’t end well.

Fortunately, we have Jupiter, the planetary flag bearer of understanding, moving forward on Friday for the first time in five months. And he’s in Venus’ other home sign, fair-minded Libra. This might inspire “cooler heads” to prevail. This is doubly powerful since the Sagittarius full moon on Friday happens in one of Jupiter’s signs. There are enhanced possibilities for understanding and thought. A chance at real illumination, not just information.

When understanding lights the heart up, then that’s when love and compassion pours through. The powers of an attentive mind direct the heart toward where someone else is NOT comfortable, safe, or pleased. That’s the limit when we’re only focused on the Gemini side of the full moon. When we lean toward Jupiter’s Sagittarius half, the agenda of Venus raises to a higher standard and level. It’s the moment when you’re more open to meeting strangers at a party rather than only those you know. When you’re more open to feeding another while you’re fed. Or when you can share wisdom you’ve recently learned. That’s the bounty of understanding and the blessings that come from it.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You probably will have more moments like Johnny Nash’s 1972 hit, “I can see clearly now.” Except the rain’s not fully gone. Things have calmed down to a light shower, so to speak. You’ll likely find this encouraging and should take comfort in that. The improved outlook, though, will help you sight issues you had only seen unclearly through your fears. But you’re clearly not only going to benefit from positive thinking and platitudes since the drizzle of tougher times is still happening. Stay patient, and trust that practical solutions are emerging.

Affirmation:
I keep my spirit up as practical solutions emerge and problem become clearer.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

People often talk about having eyes bigger than their stomachs when talking about overeating. But you might feel the same way about your hands when you attempt to do too much. Your recent sense of ease and clarity you have about what must be done should be tempered. Yes, be glad that you feel more in your groove. Also, be excited that you have the energy to tackle a lot. That is, until you get tired. Plan for when that happens. And don’t think the answer is just to push through. That’s how you wear yourself down, instead.

Affirmation:
I wisely monitor and moderate my high energy levels for rest and peak performance

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Trust yourself to enjoy yourself. Perhaps you’ve kept your metaphorical hair up a lot recently because you fear you’ll make a fool of yourself somehow. Maybe this has even led you to keep away from dear friends and colleagues you can trust. Perhaps you did mess up a little bit recently with something. Now is the time to gain real perspective on how much. And I’m willing to bet you are probably seasoning a memory with more anguish than it has, even. Give the devil his due. But give your divinity a little more glory, please.

Affirmation:
I give more glory to my own divinity than my mistakes.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You’ll have an opportunity to show what you know. Perhaps it’ll come as a chance to teach someone something. Or it’ll come as an exam or evaluation. Whether it comes with pressure or more pleasure is up to you. Regardless, treat this moment well. Use it to enjoy knowledge for its own sake and build genuine competence to share. Be careful of the temptation to wield your prowess as a weapon. Knowledge, like a surging river, can lift all in its path. Don’t dam up yours with trying to impress yourself or others.

Affirmation:
I raise others with my knowledge, not raise myself above others with that knowledge

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Time to march forward. Over the last month or so, you’ve had to clear ground and hold it. You’ve had to claim higher ground. But with expansive Jupiter moving forward in your sign this week, it’s time to cover new ground. That doesn’t mean that some “vine” of the past won’t try to grab you by the proverbial ankles. You’re stronger than its grasp, though. That’s what you’ll have to trust. Forward motion can break those vines while stopping and pulling on them will only give them more power. Venture out to someplace new or with new people. It’ll inspire more growth and momentum.

Affirmation:
I move beyond what tries to hold me back with momentum and clarity

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Have we talked enough about your charm, recently? Probably because you don’t want to show too much of it. Sometimes you think it’s a weakness, even. You’re not completely wrong, though. You must discern when to ply your ability to please and when to tap deeper from your wells of rigorous passion. You can’t always dole out which thing by who has “earned” what. It’s better to think more long-term and understand how a given situation or person benefits from your charm and what it costs you to give it. Losing track of the cost is more often when your kindness becomes a weakness. Otherwise, kindness doesn’t automatically equal that.

Affirmation:
I wisely dispense my charm and passions based on understanding what any particular situation requires of and costs me.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Sometimes appreciating beauty in simplicity is the way to anchor yourself. Perhaps like how we read that Japanese tea ceremonies hold great spiritual and philosophical import. Or how various kinds of monks would tend to menial tasks as sources for meditation on the Divine. You don’t have to aim for heaven like they do. But you can embrace routine as ritual. Infuse it with philosophical or spiritual magic. Imagine you’re clearing your own heart as you sweep the entryway to your home.

Affirmation:
I anchor myself in simple rituals that relate to bigger meanings in my life.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

 

You are more likely to be a lot more persuasive and charming with foes, friends, and fellow workers than usual. The true art of this won’t be in getting other folks to do what you want. Some will see that coming a mile away. No, your true mastery of your charm will be having others do what THEY want for you. We’re not necessarily talking about anyone giving you the keys to the city or anything. But getting a few favors or getting some flack off your back will help you think and do more.

Affirmation:
My powers of charm and persuasion beautifully align with others for our mutual benefit.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Perhaps the hardest part of going for goals and dreams that stretch your soul is choosing what best does the job. Maybe that’s why you’ve been lost in a thicket of busy work lately. That’s a pretty easy thing to do until you get a hold of something that instead seizes you. That’s when you know a dream is going to be a sweet pain in the butt. It holds on to you even tighter than you’re determined to grasp it. For instance, I’m mainly an astrologer now because astrology wouldn’t let me go. It would show up in my dreams, in too many random conversations, and when I was thinking about something unrelated. It chose me more than I chose it. Pay attention to anything whatever puts your soul on the rack like that.

Affirmation:
I know what will stretch me and make me grow is looking for me as much as I seek it.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

A friend recently introduced me to a captivating phrase: shadow jumping. It’s based on a common German phrase for someone afraid to jump over her own shadow. That can seem especially hard when the shadow of your fears can seem so long. With your sign’s ruler moving forward this week, perhaps it’ll be easier to focus on the light that causes the shadow. That light could be the fierceness of your dreams, God, or whatever brightens your life. It’s probably the same source for your recent energy bursts. Use that energy to leap over obstacles that have been holding you back.

Affirmation:
I leap beyond the shadows of my fears into the light of whatever brightens my life.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Practice surrendering to the flow of the moment more. Otherwise, you’ll probably end up changing a moment into a situation. Things will likely change soon enough on their own. When you want to relish the clamor of action, you’ll find it soon enough. And when you’ll want to slow down and curl your toes comfortably, you’ll get there, too. Have faith that you live in a Cosmos that hears you…and you also have the answer for another. That might be hard to believe sometimes. You might get impatient. But surrender takes practice. Keep practicing.

Affirmation:
I stay patient with my practice to surrender to the moment more.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Venus coming home to your sign will likely soothe you. Gifts and sweet things will wend their way more into your hands. You’ll probably also crave and enjoy more of those delights. But don’t lull yourself into a comfort coma. Keep enough edge to stay focused on personal growth and development. Don’t completely blow off the gym. Follow that blast of inspiration to change some things around in your office. Check out how your budget lines up with your goals for the year. In other words, relax. But don’t sleep on the important things.

Affirmation:
I relax just enough to be gracefully alert for my personal growth and development efforts.
