The Teacher Planets Unite: Venus and Jupiter in Libra
After a very eventful summer with three powerful eclipses and the intensity of a retrograde Mars conjunct Ketu, September is shaping up to be a much lighter period. This shift to a more harmonious time, begins with Mars turning direct on August 28, finally allowing for his fiery action oriented energy to be expressed outwardly into the physical realm and away from the psychological/emotional which can be more challenging. In addition, Saturn, the planet of security and determination, will turn direct on September 7, further adding to the flow of energy moving forward and outward. This allow us to bring projects that we have been working on behind the scenes or simply just thinking about out into the open and into the world.
The big stars of this month are Jupiter and Venus, for they are both traveling together in the soft spoken, peace-loving and relating oriented constellation of Libra until October 12, when Jupiter moves into Scorpio. Venus and Jupiter are both teacher planets in Vedic astrology and have the ability to bestow wisdom, love and intelligence. Venus is especially strong during her transit of Libra as she owns this sign and is very comfortable here. This opens the door to more cooperation, harmony and appreciation of beauty in our personal lives and for the world at large. We have a short but potent time for the next five weeks to open our hearts to their expansive teachings and perhaps learn at a deeper level how to treat each other with more kindness, to see the truth through objectivity and open our ears and eyes to the beauty of music and art that are powerful portals to feeling more connected to life.
