“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés.
This week Mercury aligns with Neptune bringing together the planet of thought and communication with the planet that rules all things ethereal. It is wise to double check thoughts for accuracy and to make an effort to communicate more clearly as misunderstandings can more easily occur and memory is likely not as sharp as at other times.
Jupiter is squaring Mars- indicating a lot of energy is available for moving projects forward. One of the expressions associated with this duo, though, is “overshooting the mark.” It’s wise to keep balance and moderation in mind. Opinions can get more heated under this influence and more dogmatic.
Venus in Capricorn is center stage this week as she engages the Pluto/Eris square and moves up to a conjunction with Pluto. This provides good timing for getting in touch with what you feel passionate about in your life. It is an alignment of deep feelings and can sometimes bring up feelings of loss and grief. It provides a good time for the revisioning and healing of old wounds related to love – self love included. And to think about love in the deeper sense – as a force in the world.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets.”
