It’s time to fertilize the roses; both literally & metaphorically! We have a lush Earth trine on our hands between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn at the moment (perfecting on June 24th), and as a result many of us may be seeing green over the next few days. This energy is just perfect for magnetizing money your way – if you’re looking to invest, secure a loan or financial backing, or enter into any kind of “merger and acquisition” endeavor, consider this astro your green light! One thing we do need to be cautious of with this planetary alignment is not to flex the plastic on a spending spree, though – this vibe can make it easy to rack up debt on things like fine fashions, beauty treatments, or pretty much anything, really.
If you need a little energetic help drawing things to you on the material plane, augmenting your fiscal intent with help from the plant & mineral kingdoms in particular is the thing to do now – prosperity herbs like basil or mint in your wallet coupled with abundance stones like jade or peridot can help. If you’re kitchen witching, seeing as how it’s peak strawberry season in my part of the world, now would be a good time to prepare foods featuring this fruit paired up with real vanilla bean (the sticky black seed pod as opposed to commercial extracts). Once you’ve scraped the seeds out of the bean, simply toss the husk into your sugar jar/bowl and use the “marinated” crystals to subtly scent/flavor a rose petal or rose hip herbal tea – there’s nothing quite like ingesting your magick, is there?
In other areas, Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn facilitates the hooking up of “power players” for mutual pleasure and/or profit – perhaps even both. Invest in each other because this is the kind of thing where together the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts; the true essence of “synergy”. Collaborate and pool resources, as this can facilitate an enriching union where both parties become key influencers & establish a prosperous and enduring legacy.
If you’re feeling tempted to energetically help this process along, I cannot emphasize enough that Step #1 is to always start out with an open, heart-centered, free-will based intention whenever it involves others. Intent to align with a partner for the above purposes is all fine and good so long as we state this must be in accordance with the Highest Good of All and let The Universe figure out the “who” and the “when” part – that’s when the magick happens; when we relinquish the prospect of total control and trust. You can design a ritual for this purpose and prepare a mojo bag or sachet to carry with you to help attract this connection – plants like rose, apple, cherry, avocado, peach, geranium, and daisy along with cardamom, mandrake, vanilla bean, damiana, orris root, and passion flower do the job nicely while stones such as magnetite, rose quartz, and malachite can also aid. Perhaps if the goal involves a business alliance, consider adding one of the aforementioned prosperity stones to your mojo bag.
