Planetary Aspects this week

“Every beginning
is only a sequel, after all,
and the book of events
is always open halfway through.” Wislawa Szymborska

There is a lot of planetary activity this week. It bodes well to make an extra effort to remain calm and to reign in intense emotions. Be on the lookout for surprising events and occurrences that can lead to breakthroughs in perception. If there are delays or complications, look for opportunities and alternatives you might not have explored otherwise.

Take more care when driving and be more conscious in communication.

Uranus will station retrograde Monday, the Sun will enter Leo on Tuesday, Mars will enter Scorpio on Friday and there is a Saturn/Uranus quincunx in effect all week. Saturn holds on to the status quo – Uranus can be disruptive, surprising and unpredictable in pushing for progress and innovation. If you have been working for breakthroughs in areas where you feel blocked or stuck this is a good time for you with the New Moon on Saturday at 3 Leo.

One of the Sabian symbols for the Mars moving into Scorpio is, “A broken bottle and spilled perfume.” Do not linger long in disappointment or disillusionment – look for creative and innovative pathways out.

Why consult an astrologer? Timing is everything.
