Your guide to the week ahead, starting with Mercury in a very important role, playing into the Jupiter – Pluto, and wrapped around the Full Moon … Mercury is now stationing (appearing to stand still) in order to turn retrograde at the very end of the week. As above, so below, look out for where you too need to stand still for a while.
Weekly insights into the stars
A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are exactly conjunct each other and as this one falls at 14 degrees of Virgo this means that both the Lights align by exact trine with Uranus in Taurus …. look out for new beginnings/next chapters that are characterized by Uranian hallmarks – eg the involvement of friends or groups, suddenness, excitement, the unexpected, the unusual, disruption, the thing you couldn’t possibly have seen coming.
Strengthen your defences. Neptune has a way of collapsing or dissolving our boundaries. Deal with the tough stuff, in any matter, and it will be worth it. If you’re serious about getting out of any kind of unhappy, unhealthy or abusive situation and changing your life for the better, do it.
If we had no earth I’d say go and walk on the beach or get your hands dirty, if we had no air I’d say reach out to friends, join a group or start writing. At a literal or symbolic level this time of no fire is a great time to find some heat of the pleasurable kind! What’s your passion?
The sequence of aspects starts with the conjunction of Mercury and Mars but then both align with Uranus just at the moment that he’s switching to retrograde. This suggests that all Mercury/Mars themes will take on greater weight and significance, or that they make a definite contribution as catalysts for any Uranus turning or tipping points. It’s hard to separate them all out.
