“Love Blooms When Courage is the Caretaker…”
Many may think that Courage and Vulnerability are on opposite spectrums. But they are not. They are one and the same. Nothing of Courage has come without vulnerability, and vulnerability grows Love. This is the energy of the Full Moon in Leo on Sat, Feb 8. Leo is the sign of the leader, passion, creativity, love, and being expressive of one’s heart, and the moon is the Caretaker ad Nurturer in all of us.
It takes great courage to be vulnerable and share your passions, to create community, to expose yourself and speak your truth, to admit your were wrong, and to share exactly who you are~ both your light and your shadow. We all want connectivity and authentic relationships, and for that we have to be vulnerable. Brene Brown has an incredible video called “A Call to Courage”, and she shares that for true vulnerability and courage we will be putting ourselves at risk, unpredictability, and emotional exposure. Or more simply put, we are open for heart-break. This is where we can share our true selves without the mask, the façade, the protection, or the projections. This is were true relationship exists- LOVE. This Leo Full Moon is a call to the courage of love and vulnerability.
The day before the full moon on Feb 7, Venus enters the sign of Aries. She is leaving watery Pisces and going into the Fire. Venus is our desire for relationship, connection, community and Love. She is also our values. These values can be money, lust and greed, or truth, integrity, and courage. Either way, Aries will take a stand for what our Venus truth is. Let’s use this fiery energy in right way and be courageous to stand up for loving communities, healing the earth, and truth.
A few days later on Feb 10, Venus will conjoin Chiron- The Wounded Healer. On the shadow side, this is all that we reject about the feminine and it sounds like “I am not lovable, I am not worthy, I am shameful, I am weak, I have no purpose, I am unaware, I am a victim.” We may all be feeling this as a collective on some level in response to our Societies, Governments, Financial Systems, Gender Roles, and Religions. To add to this intensity, the Dwarf Planet Eris is also in the sign of Aries and she is fired up!
Eris was discovered in 2005 and is in the sign of Aries from 1926-2048. Eris is the Greek Goddess of Discord, Strife, Forgetfulness, Hardship, and War. She is the sister to the Greek God Aries (Mars in Roman). Eris in Aries can be pissed off, conflict, a wounded heart, victim, shame, resentment, and anger. This is a reflection of how we as a general society treat the Yin/Feminine energy within ourselves (men and women) and externally as humans. Eris also happens to be squaring Pluto and Saturn for all of 2020. Saturn is our sense of right & wrong, and Pluto is the Soul power of transformation. This could be a hugely transformational year. Let’s use Courage and Vulnerability to transform Strife and Injustice into Love and Community.
Mars enters the sign of Capricorn on Feb 16, the same day that Mercury goes retrograde. Mars in Capricorn is the energy of get things done. Mars loves a task and a passion, and if that passion is aligned with your Soul Purpose then this is the time to get to work. What are we working on? It goes back to Venus, Chiron, and Eris all in Aries- Courage and Vulnerability to create Love and Community. Mercury Retrograde will be floating between Pisces & Aquarius- Unconditional Love and Higher Ideals for Society. Or in the shadow, Deception and Isolation. There may be some vacillation in these energies as we seek the Truth. Mercury will go direct on March 8- the day of the Full Moon in Virgo. This will likely shine the light on what the Truth is.
Finally, we have a very sweet aspect as Jupiter sextiles Neptune on Feb 20. Jupiter is our faith, trust, vision, and quest for Love which is being supported (sextiled) by our Spiritual Path, dreams, and Oneness (Neptune). This is a moment for Love to Bloom with Courage as the Caretaker.
