As we drift off the Full Moon ride, Venus & Neptune dance us down river. It is easy to get swept away by the dream, the drugs, the drink. It is easy to fall into a creative zone, get lost in the ideal image of a partner. It’s beautiful, surreal, and yet, has an ugly side — a dark secret. Parts of ourselves, truths about our reality, our world, interfere, crowding the bed. The temptation is to ignore what’s hidden under there, cover it up with a lofty duvet. Perhaps the recent Full Moon, hung next to Pluto, has revealed too much, too soon, and we are in need of a lighter space to recover. Maybe we have gotten away with ignoring the magnitude of what just happened, what is happening. Then again, maybe we’re finally accepting (at least bite size pieces of what is) choosing to take the next steps slow and easy.
That said, Mars and Uranus, both fiercely independent troublemakers, aren’t likely to let us drift too long. They are too impatient, have too much energy that needs to be expressed, and expressed right now.
Ultimately, this week, we are left with a nagging anxiety, an insatiable need to bust out of any restrictive forces (even in our dreams). We may well discover whatever it is we’re clinging to (an idea, person, place or thing) isn’t a sufficient cover-up. At that point, we’ll either whip the covers off in one fell swoop – let go a cry of frustration, or lash out at anyone or anything that tries to disturb our peace (however shaky it is). There’s nothing worse than being rudely awakened from a dream.
