This week opens with a grand air trine—that means the moon in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, and Mercury in Gemini. An air grand trine represents a flow of communication. The planets are working together in balance and support us in our process of understanding each other and learning how to talk in a way that empowers people. It also helps us to see things more clearly. The moon is challenged by a square with Venus, which asks our hearts to open and create intimacy. This might come as a challenge.
Kabbalah explains that there is no such thing as good or bad aspects. The significance is the way we use the aspect. This week the Zohar teaches us that when we are on a spiritual path, what seems like a curse can actually be a blessing. Any challenge or difficulty we are going through at the moment has Light within. It is up to us to reveal it.
On Monday, the moon will work well with Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces to help us relate to people in an emotional way. This week brings a healing vibe, and we can take this opportunity to flow with this powerful energy by meditating, studying from the Zohar, volunteering, or exercising.
On Tuesday, Mercury will finally turn direct and bring an end to the cloudiness and delays we have experienced in the last three weeks. Mercury will be stationary on Tuesday, meaning it appears not to move. The energy of communication will be blocked, so try to speak and express yourself clearly. Do not hold things inside, especially in the month of Cancer, where our stomach is more sensitive. On the other hand, when you speak, pay attention to the words you are using because words have the power to build or destroy.
Saturn and Pluto are still retrograde and ask us to look more closely at our work with people. Take note of your desire to control. Eventually, our work is to allow Light to come in and control. When we do that, our lives deepen, and the gates of fulfillment open for us.
On Wednesday, there is a trine between the Sun in Cancer and Jupiter in Pisces. But there will also be opposition between Venus and Pluto, which makes things more extreme. Love and money seem to be black or white. Let’s find the colors in between.
Thursday, we will experience the full moon in Capricorn. The moon is fully open to receive power from the sun, and so are we. Full moons are considered to be the most positive day of the month, but because the moon opposes the sun, it creates some emotional tension.
We can use this week to ground ourselves and find our balance. Find your strength in the places where you have certainty and in understanding cause and effect in your life. Meditate on this energy of trust in the Creator. Rav Berg teaches that this section in the Zohar helps us to avoid confusion and connect to stability. Certainty is not about knowing exactly what will happen tomorrow. It is a deep inner knowledge that whatever happens has a purpose to help us to embrace the Light and the blessings in our lives.
