Excerpt from Patreon – [On July 27] Jupiter’s second sextile to Neptune provides a fabulous opportunity for collective consciousness raising. This is also a chance for us to step into a more authentic version of spirituality, one which is grounded in reality as well as mysticism. We may feel more aware of the suffering in the world but we’re motivated to build stronger ties based on a more meaningful connection to one another. The challenge to all this is that Venus also squares Neptune on the same day and this is the last in a series of three squares. This aspect bursts the bubble if our hopes and ideals have become too far fetched. Whilst this is a tough world to live in right now, we can’t just escape into fantasy. The real world needs our vision, creativity, compassion and imagination. The real world is where miracles can happen. With Venus in Gemini, it’s important that we focus on the facts to bring us back to centre.
