We have a Grand Water trine with Mercury in Cancer, Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces.
During this transit we feel more at ease to express our emotions, even those we kept buried inside for years and years. The energy is very healing and flows – literally – like water.
To get the best of this transit, tune into the healing powers of water. Go by the water if you have the possibility, and if not, try a meditation that is centered on water, or simply listen to the sound of a river steam of to the sound of the waves.
A meditation you can use to tune in:
Find a quiet space inside your home or outside in nature. Start by breathing deeply to calm down your mind. Then imagine you are next to a stream, or by the sea. Listen to the sound of the water, and let it fill the space in the head until there is nothing but that sound. And then, as you go into the water, feel it against your skin. How does it feel? Then picture yourself as water. This could be a drop of rain, an ocean, a river, a waterfall, even a teardrop. Imagine yourself merging with the water, and let it guide you. Reflect on the feeling of being one with the water until you feel relaxed and at peace.
Intimacy is the bond that grows when we learn to express our own thoughts and feelings, and in the same time carefully listen to the other.
The following days are some of the most intimate days of the year:
- Sun is conjunct Mercury in Cancer
- Venus in Cancer is trine Mars in Scorpio
- Slowly Venus and Mars will approach Chiron to form a beautiful, intimate and healing
- Water Grand Trine
Sun is our identity, and Mercury, Venus and Mars are personal planets. We don’t have very often all these bodies in sync in the same time, AND in water signs. The energy is very caring and intimate. We crave deep emotional connections with others, and because Mercury is in cazimi with the Sun, and Mars just turned direct and is more powerful than ever, we also dare to express our needs and desires.
In a relationship or single, these days make sure you have contact with other people, even at a platonic level, even only for handshake, because you need this human contact, and you are likely to benefit a lot from it. Being intimate can trigger feelings of vulnerability, but that’s ok. Stay with them and let your heart break open. Some hurtful things have to be let go so all that is left is pure love.
On May 10-11 we have Venus in Taurus trine Jupiter in Virgo. Venus trine Jupiter is one of those 5-star transits. Why that?
Because Venus and Jupiter according to ancient astrology are known as “benefics” or “fortunes” which means these planets will easily attract benefits and opportunities in our way. The two planets also trine Pluto, the king of the underworld, who adds depth and increased meaning. The transit takes place in Earth signs.
Imagine a secret garden in the middle of an enchanted forest. The garden is filled with scented flowers, magical healing herbs, exotic spices and lush trees. Nightingales sing and a stream flows swiftly by, reflecting the muted purple of the dusk. The soil is so fertile that is bursting with blooms and abundance of colors and fragrance.
We all have this secret garden inside us. Is a place of infinite possibilities and mesmerizing beauty. But the garden needs our attention. We need to seed good intentions (Venus in Taurus). We need to take care of it daily and remove the weeds (Jupiter in Virgo). The message of the Venus Jupiter transit is that growth and abundance know no limit, as long as we cultivate it from within and take the proper time and care to nourish the garden of our body and soul.
