This Week’s Astrology

“And it was at that age … Poetry arrived
in search of me. I don’t know, I don’t know where
it came from, from winter or a river…

and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
that fire..” Pablo Neruda 

Uranus the planet of the Higher Mind –  sometimes called the Great Awakener – is strong in the sky this week. It is forming a harmonious alignment with Mercury – the planet of the lower mind. Both planets are in fiery signs making this a high energy time when it bodes well to heed innovative thoughts and to seek innovative solutions. It can be a time of breakthroughs and sudden illuminations. Pay attention to your dreams and nudges from your intuition.

Uranus continues to form a stressful aspect to Mars, the planet of action and Eris – the planet of discord and conflict. It bodes well to proceed with patience and restraint as it continues to be a somewhat volatile time when nerves can be frayed and irritability and anger more easily triggered.

Plan to stay active this week and use the energy creatively.

One of the Sabian symbols associated with the Mercury/Uranus trine is,”Through imagination a lost opportunity is regained.”

The Sun, Mercury and Jupiter

“We fear the sunrise in us.” Michael Murphy
Jupiter the planet of hope, optimism and expansion is strong in the sky through the weekend as the Sun and Mercury align harmoniously with it. It is a great time for learning, for teaching, for traveling – for anything that broadens your perspective and broadens your horizons. Jupiter also governs faith and it is good time to be in touch with the philosophy that provides hope  and inspiration in your life and see if it needs to be expanded.

Eris – the goddess of discord -is strong in the sky now and is shaking things up – bringing things to the surface that previously have been hidden. It is a good time to look at ways you may habitually and unnecessarily limit your life’s possibilities and opportunities. Saturn is in Sagittarius now and this has to do with looking at life as an adventure.

It is a good time to put into practice ways things that will  improve your health and overall well being over time.

Saturn – the planet of Father Time – is retrograde in Sagittarius now through the end of September. People with Saturn retrograde in their astrology charts can have trouble with being in time in the right way. This can result in situations like feeling you are always behind or assuming that because things “haven’t happened” that they are not going to happen. It bodes well to look at what your relationship to time is.
