Weekly insights into the stars
The Venus – Jupiter sextile is arguably the highlight of the week as these planets in traditional astrology are the two Benefics – bringing joy or blessings in the shape of people or events who are good for us, who benefit us. Jupiter is also the opportunity maker and bringer of luck, sometimes of the 11th hour variety.
Mercury arriving in Aries at the weekend is another opportunity to start afresh, with a clean slate and an open mind. Whatever is important for you, there’ll be no time to waste as Mercury is going to fly through this sign in just two weeks. Some matters will just naturally unfold at breakneck speed anyway so another pointer for this week is to clear the decks and get ahead.
New romance is “well starred” and could even get off to a sizzling start but whatever your own relationship status or situation this weekend is one to watch, especially as Venus is also aligned with the Full Moon in Libra, sign of the Scales. This is so often described as the sign of indecision but more importantly the Scales symbolize partnership. What one side does automatically affects the other.
It’s been a long cold journey this year, but the blaze of the long awaited Spring Equinox is now just days away.This is the moment when the Sun enters Aries, his sign of “exaltation” (best placing), the first sign of the zodiac and the official beginning of the astrological New Year. It’s fabulous for individuation – in other words, anything that gets you back to you, anything that reconnects you with your sense of self, a healthy ego state, positive self esteem and a sense of entitlement.
Harry’s horoscope shows that he’s wired for a solid relationship. Meghan likewise has a strong horoscope for a lasting relationship. The ghost of Diana is ever present. She had her Sun at nearly 10 degrees of Cancer, conjunct that synastry point of Desc/Mars for Harry and Meghan, and her Venus at 24 Taurus, conjunct their synastry point of Moon/Chiron.
