“some say a squadron of horse, some, infantry,
some, ships are the loveliest thing
on the black earth. But I say
it’s what you desire.” Sappho
“Saturn lays the tracks for the reality train to follow.” Caroline W. Casey
If things have been proceeding at a less than desired pace in your life, we are rounding the corner to a better time.
Mars, the god of action and desire moved into the Saturn- ruled sign of Capricorn in the wee hours of Monday 1/24 . Mars is exalted in this sign and it is heralding a time where, with good planning and hard work, long sought after goals can be achieved.
Pluto is conjunct Juno this week. Juno is the asteroid of commitment making this a good time to review commitments – particularly partnership commitments of all kinds – personal, business etc. Often the ability to maintain challenging relationships is a matter of appropriate boundaries and distance.
It can be a time when commitments (of all kinds) undergo transformation or change.
On Tuesday Mercury will retrograde back into the sign of Capricorn on his way to the direct station on February 3. Mercury will once again conjunct Pluto indicating a good time to think about ways you might improve your daily routine, habits and work schedule. It also is a good time to look at how you might adhere to convention or tradition in a way that is no longer helpful.
Venus will station direct at the end of the week on January 29 at 11 degrees of Capricorn.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Three stained glass windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war.”
