This week Mars and Saturn start to talk nicely on MOnday, but come to blows by the 25th. Mars is movement, Saturn is sit down and listen to me. And Saturn has the last word. It's time to take stock. Look over the first three weeks of this month and ask yourself what you have learned from the trials life has brought you. Are you facing reality? Did you learn, or are you about to jump into the frying pan...again? Change has never been more important - but hold off on new starts till later in the week or next Monday morning when its a New Moon in Virgo. You have to change your ways. You have to reassess. You have to learn. You have to grow. And while Mars is like a panting dog ready to jump, Saturn won't let you until you have done some very deep thinking and make a plan for change...real change, permanent change.
Part of that change is to think of yourself as not whats good for you, but whats good for the greater good. How can you affect society and mankind? What is your contribution? What can you do to focus on others and less on you. Can you learn to be more selfless without abandoning yourself? Create the balance between you and others, you and society.
You might, because of so many planetary aspects going on right now. want to retreat into the Neptunian world of movies and TV. Escape for a while from the heavy load you seem to be carrying. Go to see good uplifting movies (avoid the violence if you can). The Hundred foot Journey is a lovely movie, as is Magic in the Moonlight. Guardians of the Galaxy was surprisingly funny and heartwarming, despite all the violence. And speaking of violence, Lucy is another movie I recommend because of the underlying spiritual message surrounded by murder and mayhem, probably because its the only way the movie could get funding. It was quite a message about who we are, what evolution is, and where we came from and will go back to. It really moved me. Its the perfect Neptune time to take breaks....just don't make them drugs and alcohol. It's not a good time to indulge, you could fall into the abyss in a rush to relieve the inner stress and turmoil going on. Pressure is starting to really build, make sure you take time out to refresh.
Yep, we are living in hard times, but exciting times. Time to put our guts on the table and examine them. See who we are, what we're made of and find our inner hero and release him or her. If you awaken around 4 AM, take the time to pray/chat with the Universe. It's when the veil between worlds is thinnest, and its easy to speak to Angels, Guides, Guardians, etc. Make it a practice to speak to our Creator and the Goddess. Bless the Earth and her inhabitants, and ask the Goddess to fill your heart with "her ways" so you can be an amazing spiritual catalyst. This is ancient Karma we're trying to release. We chose to be here now. If you don't step up to the plate now, when? Another life with the same lessons, maybe to finally be learned then, or grow and evolve now. Like a snake shedding its skin, its rather painful, but look how shiny and new you are when its over! (And don't you hate makeovers anyhow!)
Monday - Venus conjunct Jupiter. Express your deep feelings. Be dramatic when it comes to love. Later Mercury opposite Neptune - don't make decisions. Your brain is fuzzy, or full of pie in the sky, or just flaky. Wait until Thursday to make decisions. You are not thinking clearly even though you may be certain that you are.
Thursday - Venus adjusting to Pluto. Love will encounter issues or power struggles. Just chill it won't last too long. Mercury Trine Pluto. Make sound decisions after much thought. Accept offers from important people who can help you. Think about power and influence, and how you can contribute.
Friday - Interesting day with NO ASPECTS. It's kind of like a Void of Course Moon. You're in the eye of the storm, getting a short reprieve where everything slows down and you get to breathe. Leave work early, or call in a sick day. Rest. Refresh. Take stock. It could even be a boring day....yeah for boring after all we seem to be coping with daily. Sun and Moon are about to leave Leo. Prepare for the energy shift.
Saturday the Sun leaves it glorious home of Leo, and won't be back for a year. Its moving into Virgo - the detail person of the zodiac. Hard work is coming, and a lot less play. Get ready cause summer vacation is over.
Sunday Mercury is inconjunct Uranus. New ideas may bombard you, but instead of reacting with amazement at the idea, you might go "hey wait to do that I'd have to change this" and there you are being cranky about having to change when this change will open new doors to amazing new possibilities. Slap you hand over your mouth if you start to say NO to something. Take a deep breath and give it time to percolate before you toss it aside.
Monday the 25th is a New Moon in Virgo joining the Sun. Take notes all day about epiphanies you might have. Its a day of analyzing the many ideas that are flowing to you, but with some emotional attachment (or as emotional as a Virgo can be.) Mercury is Sextile Mars - movement of ideas. Put that toe in the water NOW. Venus trine Uranus...good ideas come from love, beauty, out of the blue. Mercury sextile Saturn, those ideas can manifest nicely. But mid afternoon Mars and Saturn start to argue. You'll feel frustrated about something. Don't push or force, it will not work and might ruin something. So get things rolling in the AM then be ready to meet some walls in mid afternoon, and just chill. They won't fight forever, it's only a temporary set back.
Happy week everyone.
If you have something you'd like me to talk about, email me and I'll see if I can accommodate you!
SIDE NOTE: I knew Robin Williams in the 1970's and 80's. He was a very kind man, shy offstage if you can image that, a terrible magician!, and a genius. No one on planet earth can compete with him. It is so sad that he felt he had no one to talk to about his predicaments. It is such a terrible loss for the world to lose such a wonderful man who made us laugh so hard, so often. God Bless you Robin. You ARE missed.
