Have you noticed lately that even a good week can sometimes feel like you’re in the shadow of something bigger and ominous? Something like that is to be expected given the current state of the world. But this week there is an astrological reason for this. Although the exact aspect won’t happen until next week, Saturn square Uranus is now very close to the exact degree. Don’t be too surprised if you feel it particularly badly on the back of your neck this week. It will be harder than average to put things together, and breaking patterns will be more of a challenge.
Well that was happy wasn’t it? Now with better news …
When it comes to love, sex, and romance, we generally look to Venus and Mars first. Both planets are having a pretty good week overall. Yes, Mercury square Mars is exactly on Wednesday, and that can lead to verbal outbursts and excitement. But perhaps more importantly, we should focus on focus Mars sextile Neptune. This aspect isn’t accurate until Saturday, but it makes a good time this whole week and next to put gentler, more romantic intentions into what you’re doing with your Mars. Try a little tenderness … then don’t be afraid to get a little creative and / or crazy.
Meanwhile, Venus conjunct Jupiter also applies this week. The worst part about this aspect is that you may find that you are overdoing it with your affections, spending habits, and diet. But “overdoing” sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
On Saturday, Mercury conjunct Venus is accurate. This could lead to creative pursuits and new ways of expression. When was the last time you sat down and wrote a proper sonnet to impress a potential lover? Or something similar? You will be surprised how effective such a thing can be, and this weekend will be an excellent time to get great results. Be creative in your love life!
With all of my introductory warnings about Saturn Square Uranus and my focus on the warm potentials that come with Venus and Mars, I have purposely skipped what I personally consider to be the most important aspect of this week. On Thursday we get the gift of one New moon in Aquarius. I often tell people that the new moon is an excellent time to find out what you want and don’t want in your life and what you can do to make things the way you want. Whatever these things may be is individual to you and your life, but if that’s what you’d like to do I would love to make a request. Aquarius is traditionally associated with things like “universal love” and the like. And to be honest, couldn’t we all use a little more of that than we have lately? Why not take some time out and use the energies that are happening now to be more kind and understanding with ourselves and others? In other words, you don’t have to argue with everyone on social media 24/7. Do you?
