As this goes to press I’ll still be in Brisbane attending the Romance Writer’s Conference. It’s why you’ve got a photo from last week – because I’m writing this in the past. Anyways, I’ll tell you all about it next week, but for now we’ll get straight into this weeks sky action.
To start our working week we have a trine between the Sun and Saturn. Trines are harmonious flows of energy – so that means that if anything is going to happen it will do so relatively quickly and relatively easily. This aspect involves fire signs, so we know that action isn’t too far away. The thing is, the Sun is about ego, and Saturn is about (amongst other things) duty, discipline, and responsibility – and that doesn’t really go with ego that well. The things is, under this aspect, you can actually apply discipline to whatever it is that needs doing – and it could be one of those rare times where you don’t resent the call of duty quite as much as you usually do. There could even be (gasp, horror) some satisfaction to be found.
Tuesday’s Venus/Pluto opposition brings with it undertones of intensity and compulsion. What to what out for? Aside from intensity and compulsion? Impulsive bursts of truth that seem to come from the very core of you. If you feel the urge to give in to these, find a way to temper the potential destruction that tends to accompany the sort of honesty that normally lives deep in your belly.
What else? On Thursday Venus squares off against Jupiter. Ok, I’m just going to say it – this could be one of the worst days of the year as far as your diet is concerned. There, it’s out there. Venus in Cancer is known for comfort eating, and a Venus – Jupiter square is not known for it’s ability to say, ‘no thank you, I’ve had enough.’ How do I know? I have this aspect natally…and given Venus is today at 19 Cancer, this aspect is exactly on my Venus/Jupiter square.
This isn’t just about a lack of discipline when it comes to food, it can be a lack of discipline in relation to pretty much anything. So, do you write the day off as being a bad idea? Absolutely not – as I said, I live every day with this aspect. For what it lacks in discipline it makes up for in optimism. Just take care not to purchase on impulse – especially if you can’t afford it – or over indulge in anything that you know isn’t great for you…even if it does seem like a good idea at the time.
Have a great week!
