The campaign for change continues to mount. Venus leads the way with its rulership in Taurus by forming a square with Saturn in Aquarius. They pull to the surface the level of your ability to share with others. How would you rank it? This relates to love, resources or possessions. Furthermore, the square shines the light on your capacity for being receptive.

  1. How open are you to receiving what life has to offer?

If you’re someone who lives a ‘people pleasing’ life, you could miss the opportunity to understand what your own needs are. This is due to the fact that you’re too busy performing dutiful roles. Yet, inwardly, you experience feelings of resentment and emptiness because you’re not being catered for. Venus and Saturn are applying pressure for you to grapple with:

2. What is it costing you to continue living in a closed off way?

If this is something that you do, then you must be receiving some type of pay off. What is it? And does it outweigh the benefits of living in a reciprocal way?

The Moon and Jupiter are opposing each other, in fixed signs. They’re shining another light on the way that you relate. Here, they call into question the tendency for over-delivering in your roles and responsibilities. Again they show a focus on living up to your external persona. But be mindful that you’re not behaving indiscriminately. By maintaining this, you could be reflecting the need to be needed, at any cost. If you become more discerning, you’ll free up time to concentrate on understanding and satisfying what makes you tick. Release any emotional blockages, feelings or reticence so you can enjoy life’s blessings.

PS: I’d love to hear how you’re using today’s energy. Feel free to leave a comment.
