This Week’s Astrology and The Balance of Head and Heart

“When I create from the heart, nearly everything works;  if from the head, almost nothing.” Marc Chagall

“Only through the bringing together of head and heart-intelligence and goodness, shall humanity rise to fulfillment of its true nature.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

There’s an expression in astrology that when Saturn and Mars are aligned, that it can feel like driving with the brakes on.  This is because Mars is the god of action and desire and Saturn is the lord of restriction and limitation.

This week is likely to  have that kind of feeling as Mercury – which governs travel and communication, slows down to station direct on Friday May 3  EDT and Saturn stations retrograde on Saturday.

Mercury started his retrograde journey this time in Gemini and ends it in the sign of Taurus. This indicates that it bodes well to take  into consideration the balance of head and heart to see if a better balance can be struck.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time,”An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets.”
