It’s hard to know where to begin with the incredible complexity going on in the sky above us this week. We start the week with Saturn planet of foundations, structure and establishment finally moving direct in Libra. Those of us who have planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Pisces may have been feeling our lives have been on ‘hold’ for a while. Or, more to the point, have you been feeling ‘boxed in’ or restricted in some way? No matter what our sign we’re all going to have to take a look at what restricts us now as on the 27th a Cardinal Grand Cross forms in the sky – a rare event involving four planets making exact squares to each other in all four cardinal signs.
Grand Crosses are all about looking at structures of paradigms in our lives that simply aren’t working any more. Saturn during his retrograde period has been asking all of us to build something that honours our growth – and to see ourselves as partners and co-creators in our world. It will either result in innovation or upheaval depending on how well we’ve integrated the lesson.
On the same day the Grand Cross forms Venus planet of love, creativity and passion also turns direct in Gemini, house of communication while Gemini’s ruler Mercury enters Leo. There’s a different kind of calling here – one that says to live and communicate with passion may be a spiritual duty. Those unafraid to live an authentic life will benefit from these aspects this week.
The show is by no means over however as on the 29th another rare aspect forms – a Grand Kite. This Kite is in fact preparing us all for the Grand Fire Trine which occurs two days later. Kites contain the same potential as a Grand Trine – but with what can only be called added potential and a pinch of stardust! This Grand Kite is revving all of us up in order that we can benefit from the opportunities or gifts the trine will usher in. For more information on how this will effect you see the weekly forecast for your sign. Kites either have a masculine (fire/air) or feminine (earth/water) polarity. This Grand Kite has a feminine polarity.
The Grand Fire Trine occurs on the 1st. Whatever ideas you have to launch or actions you need to take – now is the time to aim high. Be enthusiastic in whatever it is you undertake. The possibilities for success are unlimited this week.
