Mercury Trine Uranus

“Curiosity is the doorway that stimulates growth, joy and expansion and allows you to begin to remember who you are.” Emmanuel

This week Mercury moves up to a fiery trine with Uranus as Jupiter moves into the Pluto/Uranus square. It is a good week to envision how you would like to grow. Harness the considerable transformative energy available now and commit to the courage necessary to overcome obstacles that appear to stand in the way. With Mercury in harmonious aspect to Uranus support from the universe can appear through intuitive flashes as well as innovative approaches and ideas. Be open to breakthroughs.
And just a cautionary note – do take more care when communicating with others this week as impulsive or thoughtless communication can lead to complicated circumstances.

*Quote from The Choice for Love

Weekend Astrology

“A wise old owl sat on an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren’t we all like that wise old bird?” Edward Hersey Richards

One of the Sabian symbols associated with Saturday’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is,” An old owl perched high up in a tree.” This symbol speaks of the value of wisdom and perspective and it is a good time to make an effort to be in touch with both. This is the final eclipse in a series of three since late April. Events have conspired to show us we are living in times of great change. This weekend provides a good time to take some time to reflect on what brings meaning and value into your life and and to be in touch with higher wisdom.

Solar Eclipse in Taurus

“Eclipses affect cellular memory, facilitating our awakening and remembrance of our soul’s blueprint.” Stephanie Austin

The second in a series of three eclipses is Thursday May 9 at 19 degrees of Taurus. The sign of Taurus governs what we value. It is an excellent time to set intentions related to bringing more pleasure and meaning into our lives. It is also a good time to recapture the essence of what has brought happiness in the past and to be open to new forms for it in the present.
This eclipse is about the future. It is a good idea to be open to new experiences and ideas. One of the Chandra Symbols for this eclipse is, “A fork in the road with a blank sign post.”

Stephanie Austin is a writer and astrologer in Port Townsend, Washington. The Chandra symbol quote is from Ellias Lonsdale’s book, Inside Degrees.

Pluto Stations Retrograde

“The sun, with all the planets revolving around it and depending on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as though it had nothing else in the universe to do.” Gallileo Galilei

The Sabian symbol for Pluto’s retrograde station on Friday April 12 is, “A student of nature lecturing, revealing little known aspects of life.” This retrograde period will last through late September. Wherever Pluto is transiting in your chart is an area where significant transformation is occurring in your life. There are levels of awareness about this process which can be revealed over time. From now through September provides an excellent time frame to heighten awareness about “little known” aspects of your life involved in the transformational process and where this may be leading you.
There is a quickening of the evolutionary trajectory of the planet now and it has both a personal and collective nature to it.

Friends – If you are curious about where Pluto is transiting in your chart and what this means in your life I am offering brief (15 minutes for $40, 30 minutes for $75.00) readings on individual charts. Get in touch if you would like to book some time.
