Today the Moon makes a conjunction with Venus in Gemini then moves through a square from Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Venus is still retracing the shadow of its retrograde, integrating the lessons brought to us through May and June. Gemini offers the capacity to hold multiple perspectives, to understand that love need not be singular in its point of view. Rather, as we practice holding and sharing the experiences of others—experiences that are different from our own—this can become the foundation of love. Audre Lorde writes in “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House,” “Within the interdependence of mutual (nondominant) differences lies that security which enables us to descend into the chaos of knowledge and return with true visions of our future, along with the concomitant power to effect those changes which can bring that future into being. Difference is that raw and powerful connection from which our personal power is forged.” Venus in Gemini teaches us that difference is this raw and powerful connection from which to encounter new visions and bring change into being. But then as the Moon squares Neptune, we may indeed find ourselves disoriented within a chaos of unfamiliar terrains. The risk of connecting across difference is the loss of the illusion of certainty. When we invite perspectives other than our own into our worldviews, we may find that the world becomes unfamiliar and our place in the world becomes uncertain. It can feel like a loss of self, but in truth, however challenging it may be, this is an expansion of Self, the dissolution of the limited ego that only had space for one.
