“To be responsible means to be capable of giving a response. Those of us who write are responsible for the effect of our books. Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference or we light a candle to see by.” Madeleine L’Engle
“You become responsible forever for what you have tamed.” Antoine de Saint Exupery
This week Mars in Aries makes a challenging aspect to the Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn. Pallas Athene, the asteroid of diplomacy and strategy is also involved. This indicates a good time to be very clear on what it is you would like to advocate for in your life amidst the many changes around us.
The Mars/ Pluto configuration is often seen in the charts of professional athletes. It gives ambition, power and the will to succeed – with responsibility and discipline being key players.
These two planets add warrior- type energy to the mix and its wise to take into consideration the right use of power in interactions. Pluto and Mars together can result in self sabotage as the result of insisting one’s own agenda without the appropriate input of others.
It’s best to harness the energy and put it to work with needed projects. Considerable progress can be made.
Mercury will be aligning with Uranus indicating a “life comes at you fast” type of week. There can be surprising communications and information and there can be revelations which break up stagnation and bring new perspectives.
Best to nourish the nervous system this week and provide extra downtime for the integration of information.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”The gate opens to the garden of all fulfilled desires.”
