It’s a strange and wonderful time here.
Carnival season is happening whether we like it or not. Everyone has mixed feelings, understandably, but I feel it’s a necessary step forward.
As I marched through crumbling streets in the French Quarter last night, I looked back at my friends and thought, “Where am I??”
It could’ve been 2022 or 1422 and it hit me that we all just experienced another middle age which means we’re due for another renaissance and enlightenment. So that’s something to be cheerful about.
It also hit me that my friends and I are growing older… together. And wiser and gentler and grumpier (me). And that was a very sweet thing to realize at the peak of my own, personal middle age.
The astrology right now is asking us to review our commitments and love languages. Venus is retrograde for three more weeks and this week she’s making harmonious aspects to Neptune, Juno and the Sun.
Venus shows us what we value most, and we’re learning through her relationships how to upgrade our own.
Pay attention to what and who you love. Are you holding back in any way? If so, can you observe, with compassion, any fear that might be the cause? And going deeper, can you hold that fear tenderly and say “thank you for keeping me alive but I’m going to release you” 🕊
