Mars-Jupiter Opposition

Mars-Jupiter Opposition - Impatience

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

— Harriet Tubman

Last week's adjustments, capped off by last Friday's Aquarius Full Moon (7:36 PM PDT 1° Aquarius/Leo), have helped us establish a new level of detachment, which makes room for more practical approaches and decisive action this week. Mercury leaves cautious and circumspect Cancer on Tuesday for bold Leo. We gain increasing confidence in our intellectual capacity and feel more comfortable following independent self-direction. Complications may actually open doors instead of slowing us down. Our intuition is increasingly reliable as well. We have finally fully emerged from the period of confusion that has been with us since mid-May, just before the first of Mercury's three squares to Neptune. The three Mercury-Neptune squares and the retrograding Mercury in June may have stirred great inspiration and strong idealistic intentions but seemed to offer little tangible, practical progress. However, by the time Mars arrives in practical Virgo on Thursday, we are fully engaged in a decidedly more practical environment that drastically changes are ability to take direct action. The challenging 'dance' between a desire for independence and the emotional need for safety begins to slip into the background. Jupiter returns to Aquarius on Tuesday which allows further capacity for detachment. There is also more interest in applying logical, methodical approaches, although the early part of the week may see some uncomfortable impatience stirred by a Mars-Jupiter opposition just before Mars moves into Virgo. Nonetheless, there is generally less emotional 'noise' to contend with. With the increase in confidence, we are better able to blend inspiration with practicality. Increased confidence also makes it easier for us to understand the importance of incorporating our individual sense of direction into a larger purpose. Of course, we should not simply ignore our own or others continuing emotional needs by becoming too much focused on achievement and progress. Jupiter's return to Aquarius will provide an environment where cooperation and collaboration becomes much more desirable. Despite the logic and practicality in this week's atmosphere, we will need to maintain enough emotional sensitivity to stay open to the opportunities for cooperation that are presented.

There is a surprisingly cautious approach on Sunday. We are slowed down by indecision even though we try to show that we are confident. However, by Monday, we gain a bit more true confidence. There are gems of insight to be found in surprising places. Intuition is strong on Tuesday. Mercury moves into Leo and we are ready to more clearly and articulately communicate our optimism and enthusiasm. Distractions and temptations abound on Wednesday. The Aries Moon could have us a bit amped up and there may be some impatience to deal with. Mars arrives in Virgo on Thursday and we are ready to embrace logic and practicality. Creativity and innovation are better supported with a clear commitment to integrity and logic. The drop in emotional sensitivity and emotional 'noise' could have us missing some important messages from others on Friday. We should not ignore the emotional needs of others. There is a mystical, intuitive energy on Saturday that helps us to further process the available information and 'connect the dots' very effectively.
