The universal guidance system is pointing to a year-long journey of Jupiter in Cancer. What does this mean?
Intuition. Internal security. The Divine feminine. Your personal truth.
So here is the story, starting with a quick description on what happens during a mercury retrograde.
Mercury Retrograde: 7th June to 1st July
In our dualistic 3D reality, we have left (Logic) and right (intuitive) brain hemispheres. The left is the mercury function. It gathers and collects information. Our right side then processes into an intuitive understanding. So when mercury goes retrograde we dump all of our gathered experience of the last 4 months into the right side of the brain. We digest the information that we have gained into what we call direct experiences. Those experiences become our truth. Our intuitive truth. We get a mental REBOOT.
When mercury goes retrograde on the 7th June, we will start to feel our linear logical minds get overwhelmed much faster than normal, or just not really work at all. During this retrograde period we will find ourselves working on two fronts. First the Cancer lessons then the Gemini lessons.
Mercury is currently in the earlier stages of the sign Cancer and bringing to light new information on an emotional level. The family, home or mother figures will be where I suspect this frequency will be showing up. So keep your emotional antenna open for the next couple of days, and see what emotional truths reveal themselves to you. This is a precursor for when the sun moves into the sign cancer on the 22nd of June for its 30 day cycle. This is important! It is the last cycle that the sun will have in Cancer while Jupiter is there for another 12 years. If you reflect on the emotional themes of the past week up until 10th June you will have a preview of the frequencies & lessons that will be learned during the 22nd of June until 22nd July. Listen deeply to your emotional body during this month.
Mercury will move back out of Cancer and into Gemini for most of its retrograde period. Hopefully you have already been gathering new perspectives and allowing your curiosity to lead you into new and more diverse ways of seeing things. The message here is for us is to just reflect on these new thoughts and perspcetives we have brought into our realities. Reflect and see what makes you happy, so that you can idenfity and let go of what did not. It is all about self-discovery and becoming more in tune with who you are. You do this by allowing your inner guidance system to see what is right in front you. I also suggest you double check everything you read, listen to everythnig twice, and ask if you are unsure about anything.
Read the fine print!
Venus in Taurus: 29th May to 23rd June
Venus gives us more to work with, makes whatever you have or whatever you face more substantial and valuable. This is an important cycle for us when it comes to how our inner and outer relationship conversations work.
Since the cardinal Cross, so much has been changing on this front. A new identity is being born and this Venus in Taurus cycle is an important one in terms of individual and collective evolution. We cannot act on the subtle changes that are happening in the background with Pluto and Uranus (representing Liberation from outer reality Distortions) without understanding the closer and more visible frequency of the personal planets, like Venus. Venus in Aries was all about breaking old patterns and exploring new ones. Purging the old outdated self that has been conditioned onto you and stepping into the person you choose to be. Now that Venus has moved into Taurus we are adding value to these new discoveries. We will get a chance to change our sense of what is needed with these new life choices.
The bottom line here, is that Pluto through Capricorn is removing all the outdated definitions of reality that no longer serve our best interests. How we see the world, is changing! Layered in with those outdated definitions is a core belief system. A personal truth. These will be attached to outdated experiences that are a part of the old paradigm. So the full moon in Sagittarius on the 13th June connected with the Uranus Square Jupiter in Cancer (the liberation of outdated core beliefs attached to security) is asking us to reconnect with our organic self. Our true sense of personal identity. You will know what truths are not working for you when you focus on your emotional responses to your environment.
This new birthing of your personal truth will be the organic light that will be shining by end of July. When Venus and Jupiter both move into LEO. I cannot wait for this next step, which is all about creative self-actualization.
Until then, happy mercury retrograde!
ps. did you spot the mercury retrograde spelling mistakes? Like I said… read the fine print 🙂
