A Busy Week in the Starry Heavens

“Jupiter stirs within us the willingness to be agents of healing. At the freshwater springs of the temples of ancient Greece, people would come to incubate a healing dream, a better story for themselves and their community. They would leave reinvigorated by the vision of the journey ahead of them and the power of their ancestors behind them.” Caroline W. Casey

This week ushers in a welcome change as Jupiter, the planet of hope and expansion moves into the fiery sign of Aries on Tuesday. This is an excellent time for a renewed perspective and a fresh start. Jupiter in Aries brings courage, optimism and energy.

Mercury stations retrograde Tuesday as well – at four degrees of Gemini.¬† Mercury’s journey in this mercurial sign will last longer than usual this year due to the retrograde period which extends back into the late degrees of Taurus.

The retrograde period will last through June 3.

Jupiter in Aries likes action and movement and there is likely to be more of a desire for that now. It’s wise though, to double check that any desired¬† initiatives are thought through carefully.¬† The sign of Aries can be inclined to impulsiveness and with Saturn squaring the Nodes and Mercury retrograde, complications and/or consequences are likely to present themselves more quickly than usual without adequate forethought.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A white dove flying straight and fearlessly over troubled waters.”
