Creative solutions blossom under today's Venus-Neptune sextile. Today's intellectual atmosphere is engaging and activating in the pursuit of new connections and the sharing of widely varied perspectives. The Sun's conjunction with Saturn is stabilizing, rather than oppressive or restrictive. Nonetheless, today's spontaneous environment may very well present us with spectacular surprises and sudden, unexpected actions. There is a strong desire to show leadership through flash and spectacle but also by providing direction, real meaning, and the demonstration of sincere dedication to common effort and purpose.

Weekly Summary


"If it had been possible to build the Tower of Babel without ascending it, the work would have been permitted."

— Franz Kafka

This week brings us to a peak of unpredictable, erratic, individual activity under the Mars-Uranus conjunction on Wednesday. Following last week's Mars-Saturn square, where the energy of Mars was channeled, restricted, or constrained, the independence of Mars is unleashed by Uranus. The conjunction can display erratic, impulsive — even explosive elements but we should not discount the creative power of the Mars-Uranus conjunction in favor of focusing only on the more explosive and impulsive elements. The square of Jupiter in Aquarius to Mars and Uranus, offers up the wisdom of seeing the Big Picture and the importance of working towards common effort for the common good. However, seeing this Big Picture requires individual self-discipline and the willingness to recognize that there are, in fact, more perspectives than our own narrow, individual vision can hope to offer. The challenge is to recognize this truth in the midst of the impulsive, high-energy environment that we find this week. The Sun arrives in Aquarius on Tuesday, just one day before the Mars-Uranus conjunction. The Sun's shift begins to signal a change in our approach but, at least initially, we may be presented with increasingly erratic and unpredictable individual action, guided by clever, intellectual insights. The lack of an overarching strategy or a true sense of direction may be stunning to those who have managed to muster enough self-discipline and detachment to gain a broader perspective. Jupiter's lesson in this mix is to show us the pitfalls of impulsive actions that do not have a foundation in a broad perspective. Once we move past the mid-week Mars-Uranus conjunction, we can more easily access the wisdom of Jupiter. A Ceres-Neptune conjunction helps us to look beyond grand visions and castles in the sky in order to begin to build a new foundation based upon the new insights coming out of the powerful energy released at least year's Winter Solstice. By the end of the week, The Sun reaches a stabilizing conjunction with Saturn. Rather than feeling oppressive or constricting, Saturn's energy helps us to regain focus and a sense of direction that has been a struggle to maintain since the beginning of the year. A Venus-Neptune sextile on Saturday offers the opportunity for creative solutions and new connections.

We find ways to tame the nervous energy on Sunday through the use of clever strategies and an eye towards future plans. Monday's Aries Moon conjuncts Chiron, which may increase focus and determination. Nonetheless, many may strain towards some kind of Utopian perfection. The building energy is full of excitement, enthusiasm, and impulsiveness but determinedly individualistic — without a clearly formulated guiding, common principle. The Sun arrives in Aquarius on Tuesday, encouraging individual eccentricities and clever, intellectual insights. Impulsiveness and instability peaks on Wednesday. With awareness, we will find creative ways to blend individual perspectives with broader perspectives. There is some hope of finding wisdom and better insight into a Bigger Picture on Thursday. We have some sense of the importance of becoming 'right-sized' and recognizing our unique place within a larger context. We begin to see evidence of transformational change on Friday under the Moon's trine to Pluto. Creative solutions blossom under Saturday's Venus-Neptune sextile. The Sun's conjunction with Saturn feels remarkably stabilizing, rather than oppressive or constraining.
