Astrology Article: Finding Your Path to Love, Health, and Purpose
The New Moon astrology for this month is unusual and powerful. Venus is exactly conjunct the New Moon, and releasing its magic of love and beauty into a perfect grand square astrology pattern. You can expect to find health, stability, and a new sense of purpose as this incredible month unfolds.
With the Sun, Moon, and Venus all perfectly aligned at the New Moon, there is a definite emphasis on health, love, and beauty. The Sun is bringing a new vitalizing energy to everything that Venus represents in your life and circumstances. The Moon, throughout this month’s Lunar cycle, will distribute this magical energy, in the form of whatever you treasure the most.
With the New Moon occurring in the zodiac sign of Gemini, expect new information to play a significant role in your life.
There are two distinct patterns that form our New Moon chart. I will go into more detail later in this article, but it’s important to point out that there are two distinct paths that these energies can play out in your life. What I will focus on here is the way to maximize the opportunity, and the very real possibility for combining the two patterns for optimal personal success.
With Venus playing a very rare role in the New Moon energies I feel it’s necessary first to discuss how Venus and the New Moon will mirror what’s most important to you, especially in regards to the bigger picture of life and your connection to your higher purpose. Let’s take a closer look at the magic that Venus bring to our lives.
The Magic of Venus
At the core, Venus represents the guiding principle of your heart. Venus is the very essence of life’s meaning as expressed through creativity, beauty, relationship, art, and love. It extracts the bigger picture and holistic view from your circumstances in order to guide you toward fulfillment.
Life is always moving and changing. Venus judges that movement and provides you with emotional responses that help to guide your decisions and actions by feeling what is most important. Venus also organizes all intuitive experiences of the heart (including art, beauty, music, and love), into patterns that become pathways to guide you toward inner alignment and fulfillment.
When it comes to your personal health and stability, Venus plays a big role. Because Venus is able to extract beauty and love from anything you experience, health is included as one of the significant qualities Venus provides. Vibrant health comes through harmony and something that needs to be extracted from living and life.
Your experience of Wholeness, Source energy, and the Divine are all made possible through the planet Venus. The idea that integration is something that’s good, arises from Venus’ ability to pull meaning from the bigger picture. It sees the highest good within the moment and gives it personal meaning.
Through all of these functions, Venus gives rise to the desires of the heart as well as the essence of what we call “purpose,” for higher purpose and meaning come from alignment with Wholeness. We experience this Wholeness by extracting the love, beauty, health, and art from our circumstances and activity.
With Venus conjunct the New Moon this month, you have the opportunity to “extract” your heart’s desire from your circumstances, and then follow that path toward personal fulfillment and health. In fact, this a perfect example of the deeper meaning of the word we use for “success.”
The New Moon chart for this month has two distinct patterns. One pattern is a prominent Grand Square and the other is Grand Trine. What I find super interesting about these two patterns are the planets from which they’re formed. The common denominator between the two is Jupiter and the North Node, suggesting an underlying optimism and an integrative way to work with these two patterns in your life.
Let’s take a closer look at the two basic patterns.
The Grand Square can be expressed in two very different ways. Either it can bring stability and grounding, and a realistic way to expand into this stable pattern, or it can reinforce rigidity and negative patterns of feeling stuck. The result of the “fixed” energy leads to the feeling that whatever you do just makes thing worse.
The Grand Trine can also be experienced in two different ways. It can bring fresh insight, new information, and a new perspective. This new freshness leads to the potential for transforming the way you see the world. Alternately, it can result in a kind of laziness where you relax into status quo. Then the official or traditional narrative controls your perspective and there’s no attempt to experience anything new.
The Jupiter/Venus factor is the wild card in understanding the New Moon energies this month and the way in which these two patterns can be integrated. Jupiter’s energy requires the use of discrimination (Virgo) and a willingness to relate everything to the bigger picture. Venus not only supports aligning yourself with what you value the most in life, but it also demands clarity in determining what’s truly important.
Venus supports a clean, fresh, and open-minded approach that enables you to eagerly test new experiences and information to see if they are in alignment with your highest good.
Putting it all Together
Sometimes it easiest to continue down the same path, regardless of how ordinary or stuck it makes one feel because it’s familiar and takes little energy and work. However, this isn’t the month for such an approach.
Health, love, and following your heart’s desire are all at stake this month. The energies this month can take you down several paths, but the New Moon will provide you with the information and insight to choose your own path of highest alignment.
Ultimately, this month is all about expanding into something new that promises a firm foundation and structure for moving forward. It’s important to honor your guidance and set your intentions on alignment with what holds your personal sense of value.
Best Wishes for an Amazing Month.
See You Again at the Full Moon,
