Mars Dances with Saturn, Pluto with Jupiter

“Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”Rabindranath Tagore

It’s a busy week  ahead in the starry heavens.

Mars will change signs Monday moving from the sign of Capricorn into the sign of Aquarius. This brings Mars  the planet of action, drive and ambition, up to a conjunction to Saturn. This duo in effect now and through much of next week, can easily contribute to a sense of frustration – especially over the inability to move forward or make progress with projects. It’s often heard in astrological circles that Saturn in the brakes and Mars is the gas and so when these two get together things tend to slow down and there’s friction. It’s best to proceed with Saturn’s rules; keep your eyes on the long haul, be patient and take your time. Avoid overdoing, overexerting and overworking.

On April 4 Venus leaves the sign of Taurus and heads into the more curious, sociable sign of Gemini. This will provide good timing for gathering information and for more levity in conversations.

Mercury is in Pisces and widely conjunct Neptune all week . This aspect is good for the imagination, for meditation and spiritual evolution. It can be fuzzy on the details and sometimes cause confusion in conversation and thinking.  Neptune rules fog and when partnering with Mercury it can be like driving in heavy fog.

Jupiter and Pluto are together this week also – exact on the 4th.  It’s wise under this influence  to look for opportunities which may not have been visible before. It is a soul deepening aspect and indicates that through self mastery and regeneration, personal growth and expansion  be achieved. Jupiter rules faith and Pluto, regeneration.

The Theosophists considered this influence to bode well for setting off on a spiritual quest to find a belief system which is appropriate for a person’s current state of evolution.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A glass bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders.”
