Venus in Leo

“It takes a heap of loafing to write a book.” Gertrude Stein

Venus is is Leo now – a dynamic fiery sign- and moving up to a harmonious aspect with Saturn in Sagittarius. This will help get things back on track and help facilitate movement forward with well conceived, long term plans – a welcome relief after the long transit of Mars retrograde (since mid April. ) That time frame was better for an inner exploration of how to move forward rather than actually moving forward but usually comes with a modicum of frustration (Mars is the god of action likes to charge ahead.)  Now is a good time to put things in order and proceed wisely. As Caroling Casey wrote -“Saturn lays the tracks for the reality train to follow.”

And just a brief word on the  testy Mars/Uranus aspect which is exact Thursday. Both Mars and Uranus govern speed – Uranus adding the sudden, surprising and unexpected. Uranus also rules all things cyber. In terms of history our use of cyber technology is relatively new and has dramatically increased the speed with which news and events from around the world can reach us. This can be hard on nervous systems and difficult to integrate at the time.

With other aspects at play now it bodes well to provide extra down time for introspection, rest and rejuvenation.

Sabian Symbol quote from Lynda Hill

Mars and Uranus

“Have patience and the mulberry leaf will become silk.”

This week is a good time to practice restraint and patience as Mars – now  gathering strength – continues to move up to an exact  inconjunct aspect to Uranus on Thursday. It is a good time to avoid impulsive activity. There can be increased irritability and frayed nerves at this time.

In a larger sense much of the upheaval occurring on the planet now is related to  the shift from the Age of Pisces – a time when religion was based on reverence and devotion to an external authority to the Age of Aquarius – a time of the development of higher consciousness in each individual rooted in the soul. As this shift continues to grow the divisiveness and barriers which are so apparent in the world now will break down and  a sense of brotherhood/sisterhood  rooted in the  interconnectedness of all life will become widespread. This is visible now in many circles. People incarnating now are more in tune with it and are coming to help facilitate it.

A new world is trying to be born and it is wise in times like these to envision a positive outcome on the other side.
“So hope for a great sea-change
On the far side of revenge.
Believe that a farther shore is reachable from here.
Believe in miracles
And cures and healing wells.” Seamus Heaney
