And somebody spoke and I went into a dream.
– from “A Day In the Life” by Lennon/McCartney
Venus is flowing further down Scorpio’s stream into a water trine with Jupiter’s course through Cancer at 5:01 pm EDT Thursday. Stereotypically, the combination of Venus, Jupiter and a trine is a dream come true. That’s because Venus, Jupiter and trines (an aspect connecting signs that share the same element) have the reputation of being ‘good’. In the context of everything else going on, however, the indicated dynamic is of dreams finding a place, or not.
Because Venus will move on quickly, leaving Jupiter practically in place, the implied best use of their impending trine is to sort out your dreams and their place in both your life, and in the world.
Dreams are the indicated subject because of Neptune. Even barely into its Pisces realm, astrology’s emblem of dreams is already nothing if not pervasive, especially as regards to the other two water signs, Cancer and Scorpio.
Dynamic is the implied model of interpretation because a dream’s place can be interpreted, and experienced, more than one way. It may be a dream prudently placed, regulated and balanced by reality with pragmatic planning.
Alternatively, a dream in place could also be moving in place, as though treading water. Then again, the image might entail the potential of water behind a dam, capable of either production or destruction depending how it is managed, if it is managed at all. Other models may apply as well.
Sorting out how dream and place applies to you makes sense right now. Going into and through the weekend just past, a powerful Pisces Full Moon spilled over Pluto’s return to direct motion flowing into a Libra equinox for the ages. Nearly everybody with a pulse felt something sweep through their stream of consciousness during that time in the form of dreams provoked while sleeping, awake or both.
Now, as Venus moves to flow in trine with Jupiter, streams of consciousness seem ready to converge somehow, with the dreams they carry coming together. Assuming the validity of that scenario, it would appear important to avoid being swept away in the confluence.
In order to avoid being swept away, the first imperative is to identify your dreams and know them as your own. Following that, it will be equally advisable to know the place each of your dreams has inside you, so as to be aware of their relative importance for your life. Finally, it would be useful to at least be conscious of where and how your dreams might find a place of acceptance, expression and manifestation in the world.
That may seem like a lot of work if you are accustomed to letting dreams drift in and out of your life, a phenomenon which has made the captioned lyric resonant for nearly everybody.
Nevertheless, yours is a time when dreams are taking form as never before because Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn (with a longer voyage through Scorpio than Venus) are relating as never before for longer than ever before, through the elemental water of astrology.
Therefore, if it is not your dreams that find a place in you and the world, you and your world will surely end up finding a place in another’s dream — and you may not find that agreeable.
So, stick up for your dreams and give them a place, at least in your life while the ‘good’ of Venus contributes to an unprecedented flow around the zodiac and, by implication, the world. If you can do just that, your dreams will have ceased to drift, and will have found a place on the way to, and possibly as part of, the future.
