To me this feels like a week that falls into two definite halves. For the first half we have Venus travelling towards a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, exact in the early hours of Thursday. Taken alone Venus (love, pleasures, money) meeting Pluto (endings, absence, power, intensity) is not the most comfortable of pictures but, as ever, it’s too easy to tip over into alarmism.
Yes, for some it will be about putting an end to unmanageable or unhealthy setups, but it’s also a good time to look deeply at anything that is not working in your life. There is also a message here about how to put your resources of love and money to powerful use.
Add to the mix that Venus moves on to make a sextile (harmonious) to Saturn in Scorpio later the same day and a picture of greater stability starts to emerge. Note that Saturn and Pluto are currently in mutual reception (each other’s signs, Saturn now travelling through Pluto’s water sign of Scorpio, and Pluto travelling through Saturn’s earth sign of Capricorn).
This signals collaboration at work, moves that you can make to strengthen or heal a situation/relationship etc. The end of the week is great for final answers and practical agreements when the Sun and Mercury meet up in Capricorn early on Friday.
The Sun and Mercury then both change sign, moving on into Aquarius at the weekend. This opens a new chapter that is far less intense as Aquarius is an air sign (the element of the mind) associated with objectivity, realism – with a dash of genius thrown in for good measure. It’s also the sign of the collective so humanitarian issues move into the limelight, as does any concern that focuses on the “good of the whole” – in other words, what works best for most is the way forwards.
