What’s happening this week?
This has the feel of a landmark week. Saturn (takes about two and a half years to travel through one sign) and Neptune (takes about 14 years) catch up with each other by trine (harmonious aspect). This aspect forms in the water signs, Saturn being at 5 degrees of Scorpio and Neptune being at 5 degrees in his own sign of Pisces, and will be exact at 00.19 BST on Wednesday. This is the second contact of three – the first was on 11 October 2012, the third will be on 19 July 2013. If you have planets at 5 degrees of any sign in your own horoscope this event will be especially significant for you.
It has to be said that these outer planets carry tough messages, even when in harmonious aspect. Also this second contact is flanked by two difficult aspects – Venus opposite Pluto late on Tuesday night and Venus square Uranus. So Venus is re-invoking the ongoing Uranus – Pluto square that is taking a very long time to play out… only two more years to go on that one!
For now, if you had conflict in your life around 20 May look out for the next episode and, ideally, a chance to resolve it. Also check back to see what has roots stretching back into last October. Neptune’s big message is redemption and much can be achieved when we step out of “ego” and connect with compassion/understanding.
Up your game to protect what is of value to you. Venus is not just about love between couples, she is also girlfriends, pets, money, a comfortable life style, treasured possessions and all the sweet things of life. As she runs the gauntlet of Pluto (loss, endings, surgery, power and control issues) and then Uranus (the unexpected, the loose cannon, disputes) highly charged or sensitive issues are likely to peak.
As I write my youngest cat Jasper is at the vet, having his tail amputated. I found him injured last night. Three comments on that:
· One, he is embodying this symbolism and is going to be okay, as even though he had been missing for three weeks (since 20 May!) I found him in time. He has necrosis (Pluto, the part of the loss that has been “killed off”) but he is having life saving surgery.
· Two, I’ve had the invaluable company and guidance this last week of a beautiful Pisces friend who has imparted a great deal of wisdom to me. One of the life lessons we talked about was the difference between “a situation” and “a drama”. When we focus on the former, rather than getting sucked into the whirlpool (Uranus – Pluto) of the latter, we heal (Saturn – Neptune).
· Three, working with the symbolic helps us to confirm this. I will share with you that yes, I do have a planet at 5 degrees of Scorpio, and I do have a bigger issue that begs the question of do I “amputate” this/do I find a way to heal it?
