Some key questions for contemplation at this new moon might be:
- Are you willing to re-attune your mind to a new and upgraded lens through which you experience reality? Have you had any eye-opening experiences recently that are helping you orient to a new perspective, a new way of looking at old situations? How about interesting interactions with new people that have assisted you in expanding your horizons or "downloading" important information? Clear-seeing (as much as we can with the ever-changing energies at the moment) and diligent sorting of all the parts of life that are confusing will go a long way toward helping us figure out our next move.
- How are your previous desires re: love and relationships stacking up to the current reality, with any new information that may have come to light since late this week? Are you at a crossroads and needing to absorb a reality check to get on with what's really right for you? Reconsideration is okay, and in fact, is entirely necessary at present as Saturn Rx opposes Venus. Don't be afraid to change your mind!
- Are you trying to force an outcome, or wearing rose-colored glasses about something, only to find again and again that the ground beneath you continues to shift in unpredictable ways? This is the current astrology: topsy-turvy, all bets are off, and the only way to make it through the muck is to let go of the need to control the "how" and allow things to flow as they will. Know that the undercurrents are swirling and that this will prepare us all for more stability and clarity down the road.
- Are you experiencing heightened emotions, perhaps a feeling of loss or longing after the above-named realizations? This is to be expected too, since The Sun/Moon/Venus stellium is squaring Neptune and Jupiter. The Universe really is trying to lead us down new paths that will be far better suited to our needs and desires, but we have to be willing to take part in the "trust fall" for a while to get there. Be willing to let go and embrace uncertainty; there really is no other way at present.
Meditate; contemplate; feel; breathe. Honor your feelings and indulge at least a little, allowing yourself to recuperate from what might have been an upside-down week to say the least!
