“New ways of thinking about familiar things can release new energies and make all manner of things possible.” Charles Handy
“The word ‘evolving’ comes from ‘volare’, ascending up and ‘evolvere’, unfolding like the petals of a lotus”. Richard Idemon
The week starts out under the influence of the Sun conjunct Mercury in opposition to Saturn and forming a challenging aspect to Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. This presents a good opportunity for insights to arise about where thoughts and ideas may have become too rigid. Mercury rules thought patterns and Saturn rules crystallization. Uranus can bring sudden awareness about ideas that have outlived their time or inhibit future growth.
The fiery Sun in Leo will form a harmonious alignment with Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer. This aspect is about the soul’s evolutionary journey towards wholeness. It helps to increase self esteem, courage and appreciation for the journey up to this point.
Throughout the week, as the Uranus/Saturn square is activated by the Sun, Mercury and the New Moon on Saturday, the major themes of 2021 will be activated – the themes having to do with change and the push back and resistance to change. It’s a dynamic time as these forces affect both our inner and the outer worlds.
It’s wise to provide extra down time this week for the integration of information. It’s wise also to keep an open mind and be aware that all the information is not in.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “brilliant sunshine just after a storm.”
