The expression “internalized energy” is often overused when talking about retrograde planets, to the point that it turned into somewhat of a catchphrase which might mean everything and nothing at the same time.
However, the actual intrinsic value hidden in this formula makes it impossible to dismiss it altogether; a deeper exploration of its meaning is necessary in order to understand the upcoming retrograde station of Neptune, happening on June 14, at 12° Pisces.
In a chemical reaction, two reactants contact each other, the bonds between their atoms break, and atoms themselves rearrange, forming new bonds in order to originate a different substance. No atoms are destroyed or created anew in the process; there is a shift, a mysterious transformation of what was once clear and definite, into something else.
“Hey, I’ve been really struggling with my Mars in Scorpio. I feel insane unable to love or let go sexually, or emotionally, I drop people even when I care about them and I don’t know why. I’m never satisfied sexually, and I’ve never trusted anyone. I’ve had sex once and the moment I did I didn’t want them anymore which I know is more normal for guys but I’m a girl. My relationships never last longer than 3 months and I’m always the one to end them, but once I’m done with one relationship I somehow find myself in another. I seem very dominant but submissive/passive people are not my type.“ Heather
Many cultures all over the world have emphasized and celebrated the power of words – to name a few, well-known examples, the Christian Gospels speak of “word made flesh” and the “word” that is God; we are now well aware about the significance of the sacred utterances called mantra, and the importance they hold in various religious schools of the South Asian area; last but not least, formulas and orations are an integral part of rituals and spellcasting in most witchcraft and magickal traditions. Even the scientific discourse is catching up with this – the hypothesis of language as something that shapes our mental representations, and, therefore, our neural networks, is becoming increasingly accepted.
There’s a time to stay grounded, and a time to take off. Venus, planet of love and relatedness, abandons the reassuring comfort of her Taurean domicile on May 24, for versatile Gemini, the sign of questions, curiosity, duality and communication; like a curious drone, she gets off the ground to eagerly explore her surroundings and map out her environment. There’s a restlessness, a hunger for answers creeping into our romantic and social connections at this time – urging us to reach out, inspect, question, understand. Some describe Venus in Gemini as “flirtatious”; that most definitely isn’t off the mark, but there is more to this transit than just fickleness and superficiality. It’s about the seeds we have sown in the fertile ground of Taurus, starting to germinate, meeting the breeze, the rain and the sunlight for the first time; about us upgrading our awareness of our relationships and their state of the art, rediscovering our role and purpose as friends, partners and associates through a lively, ongoing interrogation.
