I have been working with Venus very closely for over one and half years now. I started at the beginning of the Gemini Venus Cycle from June 2020. I have been finding it very useful to consider the Moon and Venus cycles together, as a sort of portal of energy to work with. So it begins with the Peak Venus Portal of Venus in Capricorn opposite the Moon in Cancer. Venus is trine to Uranus in Taurus and the Moon is sextile to Uranus. Uranus is still in a square with Saturn in Aquarius, though separating, yet with Mercury conjunct Saturn and square to Uranus, it is triggering that energy in a more personal way for us. We are being invited by this energy to be authentic to ourselves, our emotions, and our desires, and through that acknowledgment of our feelings, we create a safe environment within ourselves to feel whatever it is we are feeling. When you can do that for yourself, you feel safer in your body and in your physical experience of life. You start to perceive and understand that you are the one who must create a safe environment within yourself first before you can feel safe in the external world.
Now we have the Full Moon in Cancer, which is the Moon in Cancer opposite the Sun in Capricorn. The Sun is in a separating conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is trine the South Node in Scorpio and sextile the North Node in Taurus while the Sun is trine the North Node in Taurus and sextile the South Node in Scorpio, forming what is called a mystical rectangle. With the Nodes involved, it feels like this Full Moon is a chance to really empower ourselves by allowing ourselves to be fully embodied. And the Peak Venus Portal energy is showing us how to feel safe enough so that we can be embodied.
In this way, we are working with our heart (Venus) and our emotional nature (Moon) to achieve the maturity and mastery (Capricorn) needed to be our own nurturers and caretakers (Cancer), ensuring that we become the source of own safety (Cancer) and security (Capricorn). When you are not reliant upon the external world for your feelings of safety and security, when you are truly self-reliant (Taurus), you are not easily controlled and manipulated by others (Scorpio).
