Mars may have left Aries, but it is pretty busy this week. Mars (aggression) squares Saturn (repression) today as the Sun approaches a conjunction to Pluto (intensity), and over the week Mars will act as a flare for the challenging square from Jupiter (expansion) to Uranus (revolution). If you’re thinking that doesn’t sound like a great planetary climate for insurrection and the breakdown of government in the United States (Pluto in Capricorn returning to its place in the US chart), you would be correct. I say this not to frighten anyone, but being prepared, I think, is always a good thing.
That said, unless you’re a member of the US Congress, this planetary excitement can actually be a positive thing – all of this fire for change can help us to break through personal barriers and achieve a kind of personal activation. Today’s square from Mars to Saturn can help us to focus if we don’t resist the need for concentration. We can use today’s conjunction from the Sun to Pluto to probe deeply into any subject with which we are involved. We can use the upcoming square from Jupiter to Uranus to observe more fully where we are dissatisfied with the status quo of our lives and see the greater possibilities that are available to us. Let’s make that a theme for this week, and see where it takes us! ❤️
