What’s happening this week? The big event is yet again taking place in Aries, as we have the rare Sun – Mars conjunction in this sign midweek (exact on Thursday at 01.21 BST). Traditional astrology attributes great power to this conjunction, as the Sun is “exalted” and Mars is “dignified” in this fire sign. Together they conjur up the image of an army being mobilized, a picture of glinting swords and shields and blazing energy. Think courage and purpose, get fired up about what matters to you and above all act. When you refuse to be defeated it’s what you do that counts, not what you say, and there’s no time like the present. The Sun and Mars both move on into Taurus at the end of the week.
Venus is ahead of them, having already arrived in Taurus this morning. This is one of the signs that Venus rules so she also is now “dignified’, so we have both the love planets happily placed. Venus’ first aspect is a sextile (harmonious) to Neptune, again dignified in his own sign of Pisces, picture perfect for emotional concerns of every kind.
Mercury throws a bit of a spanner in the works at the weekend, meeting up with erratic Uranus early Saturday and squaring Pluto on Sunday. In essence this signals news of the surprising kind, that may even spread a few shockwaves, and it’s a no-no for risk taking, in word or deed. Also look out for cancellations and sudden changes of plan.
