“You can’t force simplicity, but you can invent it by finding as much richness as possible in a few things at hand.” Thomas Moore
Balance is key once again as this week gets off to a bit of awkward start. Venus in Virgo forms a challenging aspect to retrograde Mars in Aries. Venus in the earthy sign of Virgo is looking for order and Mars in fiery Aries is looking for action and to stir it up. These two are forming a quincunx – and quincunxes can feel like a balancing act and indicate a constant need for adjustment.
Juno, the asteroid of commitment and marriage is joined by retrograde Mercury and both are opposed by the planet of the unexpected, Uranus. This can bring surprising news, revelations and breakthroughs about this area of life. Uranus is the planet of innovation and the future. If you are looking to improve relationships and commitments, do heed any info that surfaces at this time.
The electrical side of Uranus combined with its erratic nature can be taxing on the nervous system. Best to make an extra effort to stay grounded, create extra downtime and nurture the nervous system throughout the week.
Venus is moving up to a harmonious alignment with the Jupiter/ Pluto/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn boding well for expanding and transforming self esteem, financial management and matters of the heart.
The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio on Thursday.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A young girl feeding birds in winter.”
