“In a circle of friends,
In a circle of sounds,
All our voices will blend,
When we touch common ground.” Paul Winter Consort
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing
There is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When we lie down in that grass,
The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.” Rumi
The Sun in Aquarius is moving up to a conjunction with Venus this week. This is the sign of the collaborator who seeks alliances along lines of common interest.
The Age of Capricorn which we are now leaving, was a time of top- down or power- over leadership. Capricorn rules the institutions of big business and “the way business is done.” It is associated with the patriarchy and patriarchal rulership. There is a movement afoot with the Age of Aquarius and the re-emergence of the Feminine (in both men and women) that has the potential to bring about a more just, egalitarian and sustainable world. Needless to say in working towards the transition to a new paradigm from an old one, there will be resistance and push back.
In building alliances this week and going forward it bodes well to focus on common interests rather than the stark differences which are so prevalent in the world these days.
It is a good week for forging collaborations, making agreements and business deals- keeping in mind the benefits to others involved.
Mercury is conjunct Pluto and making a positive aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and wisdom. Mercury/Pluto is often found in the charts of investigators, private detectives and people who do research. It has a laser-like in focus and intensity and is able to quickly and accurately penetrate the outer layers of information. It is also an aspect of deep thinking. So if you are in the process of making some kind of alliance or negotiation the best to enter full prepared and having thought it through thoroughly. And then speak or act with a great deal of clarity. Important things can be accomplished under these terms now.
It can be a time of working towards healing fragmented relationships as long as there is clarity and the cool headed detachment of Aquarius which can be open to the opinions of others without getting caught up in heated discussions about the differences. Best to have appropriate boundaries in place when entering this kind of situation.
It’s best to practice diplomacy and build bridges to the future now.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A Hindu healer glows with a mystic healing power.”
