As you know by now the Uranus – Pluto square has been dominating the astrological news. Just to summarise, the second of 7 contacts was exact last week, the third contact won’t be until May of next year. At the weekend the Sun will oppose Uranus and square Pluto, and the Full Moon then falls at 7 degrees Aries, exactly conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. In other words, the themes of this major aspect will be re-invoked and illuminated. If you’re dealing with any ongoing situation that reflects the “earthquake” symbolism – shock, upheaval, the unexpected, news that has sent shockwaves rippling through your life or your community, big life changes etc – then this coming weekend is likely to mark a landmark/light bulb moment – a significant link in the chain of events still unfolding. The bigger message is not to be sucked into any whirlpool of drama but to find your footholds and deal with one thing at a time.
Along the way we have a harmonious and helpful Mercury – Jupiter link on Wednesday – exact at 15.10 BST. This is the classic “good news” contact and it’s also fantastic for doing deals or making agreements/inspired decisions that will change life for the better. All matters linked to negotiation, education, travel, legal concerns and publishing get an especially big tick.

If ever there was a time for looking for the deeper meaning this week is it. The awkward dance of the two outer planets – Uranus and Pluto – continues as they square up to each other for the second time. The first square was 24 June of this year and, rather overwhelmingly, this contact happens a total of 7 times, the final contact being mid March 2015. These outer planets tend to act as the global backdrop to social, political and financial reform, often through anarchic or dramatic events, but for some this kind of change will also play out in the personal arena. For now, if you have planets/angles at around 7 degrees of the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn then you are more likely to experience your own life changing events.
It may sound contradictory for an astrologer to talk about living in the moment but given the Uranus/Pluto “panic factor” I feel very strongly that it’s worth finding that quiet space inside you even if everything else has stopped making any sense!

We’re still building up for the next stage of the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square but it won’t be exact until next week. For now I would say that this is a week to find that work/life balance, and to dwell less on anything that’s out of your control. This afternoon’s Sun/Mercury conjunction in detail loving Virgo is ideal for sorting out your own priorities and getting the week off to a productive start. It’s also great for news, decisions or helpful info, especially those related to work or health.
The Venus/Uranus trine (harmonious) is exact early Thursday morning. A big injection of fun, romance and spontaneity ensures that life is not all work and no play. This combination usually brings a few surprises too!
The New Moon in Virgo is exact in the early hours of Sunday. New Moons are new brooms that sweep clean. Again, work and health issues top Virgo’s bill but all things prosper if you’re prepared to put in the effort or make serious commitments.
