  • Talk about fears or what needs to transform
  • Small beginnings contain huge potential
  • Happy birthday, Sagittarius!

Does this week bring news that transforms or is there resistance? Is this a time for change or are we holding on to the past like grim death? We could find ourselves dealing with issues around these themes this week as Mercury meets Saturn in Scorpio. There may be more openness to talking about taboo subjects or issues around life and death. The message is – don’t keep a lid on it. If there is a topic that pushes a few buttons or you in fact find downright scary then talking about it actually will show we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Expect deep, button-pushing, fundamental issues to appear – assisted death, changes around ideas of marriage, sex, religion and the foundations on which we build society – and for people to either hang on for dear life or let go as the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Saturn all form a mega-conjunction in Scorpio on the 21st and sextile both Scorpio’s rulers Mars and Pluto who are now conjunct in Saturn’s ruling sign of Capricorn.

If it all seems rather serious and heavy-going free-spirited, free-wheelin’ riding for the stars is next as the Sun enters expensive, optimistic Sagittarius on the 22nd. Happy birthday to all the archers out there. Is it mere coincidence that a film featuring the ultimate freedom-loving Sagittarian symbol Katniss Everdeen is released this week? I think not. The new Moon appears in Sagittarius on the same day and with Venus already in here this brings the number of planets up to three. This new Moon marks the beginning on a new phase – particularly for Sagittarians as this is when their ‘official’ new year begins. Watch for Sag-like themes appearing – travel, adventure, all things philosophical, foreigners, higher learning, mass media, the law, sports, the outdoors and animals (especially large ones). The message here is no matter where the new beginning lies – think big. It’s the acorn from which the oak tree grows.
