“Genuine commitment is a journey into the unknown.” Madonna Kolbenschlag
“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” Goethe
This is a good week to think about commitments – and by that I mean commitments of all kinds – business, romantic, friendship family etc. Juno in mythology was married to Jupiter who was renowned for his romantic liaisons. Juno kept her wedding vows but with resentment, jealousy and often acts of revenge. The one time Juno attempted to leave Jupiter, he fell ill and near death without her.
This story can illustrate the complex nature of commitments and how we are or aren’t attached to them. Juno is prominent in the sky this week boding well for thinking about the commitments we have made and would like to make for the future.
Neptune is making a favorable aspect to Juno this week indicating that there can be inspiring ideas about commitments but also the need to make sure that aspirations have solid footing in order to avoid disillusioning experiences.It also bodes well with any new endeavors to make sure all the information is in.
Jupiter is squaring Neptune now and this can be a time of dreams and which can make manifest desired goals in the future – again with the caveat that the plans are built on solid ground, with a non- wavering commitment and that avoidance or evasion is not part of the picture.
Juno has been making a favorable alignment to the North Node of destiny and life path – both in the sign of Cancer. This will be exact on Thursday. There can be significant events and significant people who come into our lives now and point the way to the future. It is a good time to think about your soul’s aspirations- where you are and where you want to be on your life path and raise awareness for signs and signals that point the way.
Saturn is transiting opposite Juno this week too. This too can bring in karmic people and events. It is also a reminder of the importance of the seriousness of commitment and the willingness to persevere and hold the light during challenging times. It can also be a reality check of some kind about where plans need to be shored up.
With Pluto and Saturn conjunct the South Node now there is the ability to look below the structure of the way plans and commitments have been made in the past. This can be done by looking to the origin of commitments and where you were emotionally, spiritually and intellectually.then You may have outgrown certain needs that you looked to partnerships to fulfill or may have felt you needed a certain kind of attachment that is no longer necessary.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A master instructing his disciple.”
