Look east just before sunrise to see a most beautiful conjunction between Venus and Jupiter in sensitive Pisces and know that Neptune hovers just out of sight nearby. This combination can make us feel unusually sensitive and keep us drifting and dreaming with low energy levels, but still bathe us in warmth and awe. Heart and spirit further, dreams can flood in, but all else can feel a bit swampy. Jupiter and Neptune are co-rulers of Pisces and Venus is exalted in Pisces.

This is a beautiful and subtle conjunction that can leave our heart brimming with emotion. We can feel fed by beauty, the beauty of the daffodil or unfurling leaf, the beauty of a kind gesture. It can help us feel more idealistic in our worldview, but also sensitize us to the fact that the world is so far from those ideals.

We could also feel overwhelmed, longing, need to process recent griefs. Those who don’t feel they have a way to express their love in the world can bring resentment. It can be easy take on guilt that is not ours or project that guilt upon others and look for who’s at fault. But that won’t help.

And bring our mind to those beautiful death, that unfurling leaf, the sound of baby bird song and new life arising.

But before this mushy and sensitive weekend, after low energy, dreamy, moody and often confusing Piscean week, Friday brings a fierce and busy Aries Moon squares Pluto and can precipitate some tough personal decisions. We could also see some major moves on the world’s chessboard. Mercury enters Gemini late on Friday and wakes up our mind, over the next few weeks this Mercury will help us multitask, communicate, and travel but can still keep us easily distracted, like a dog around squirrels.

On Saturday an earthy, fecund Taurus new Moon/ solar eclipse (seen only in the southern hemisphere) inaugurates the most fertile time of the year to plant seeds, begin…
