Venus Has Gone Retrograde and the Moon is on the Wane

Gemini Full Moon
Gemini Full Moon

2013 has been a year of tremendous change, the world over. Sometimes it is hard to grasp how quickly things can flip or completely transform. Much has come to light that was held in secrecy for decades. At the same time, amazing new information, technologies and developments have been revealed that offer tremendous promise, reminding us that we are moving through a time like no other. The more we can reconnect to our hearts and follow the guidance they offer, the more easily we will navigate these times.

The last full moon of 2013 lit up the night sky in the sign of Gemini on December 17th. At the Solstice, on December 21/2, Venus entered its retrograde phase, to travel backward in the sign of Capricorn for the entire month of January. Astrology allows us to see the natural cycles of life and their timing: conception, becoming, flowering, peaking, distributing, diminishing, dissolving and renewal. This waning of the moon and retrograde Venus both indicate that between now and the end of the year is prime time for considering what has value (Venus) in your life today, and consciously releasing anything that no longer fits or works for you. Whether there is an old habit you’ve been meaning to change, a relationship you’ve outgrown or a closet full of clothes that you just don’t wear anymore, the stars are aligned to support you in letting go so you can once more be wholeheartedly in the flow of your life.

Freedom, the freedom to be who we really are, comes only when we have let go of all the stuff that we are not. Many of us once gladly laid claim to labels and titles and identities and stuff and nonsense, believing they made us somehow more than we were without them. Today, we want to use our creativity and intelligence and do something that not only makes our hearts sing, but makes a real difference in the world.

Waking up to the fact that nothing outside ourselves can give us any value that we don’t already possess within us can be a challenge. Continuing to do things that we know are no longer right for us, however, can feel like death. So, if you’ve been feeling the urge to let some things go, there’s never been a better time than now. In lightening up now, you create a vacuum that allows you to attract something new that feels just right.

Wishing you all a peaceful late December and beautiful visions for a shiny New Year.

Love, Jodi
