5th – Mercury enters Aquarius – 3 Planet Stellium in Aquarius

8th – Moon/Jupiter/Juno conjunct in Leo trine Uranus in Aries

10th – Sun/Pluto conjunct in Capricorn

  • Have an emotional decluttering
  • The week to be yourself
  • Do you goals allow you to embrace your highest potential?

An emotionally sensitive full Moon appears in the Moon’s ruling sign of Cancer this week. It also falls conjunct the fixed star, Sirius. Sirius is the brightest star in the sky (it is actually a binary system) and of course, Sirius was revered by the ancient Egyptians in particular. Aside from asking us to have an emotional decluttering or shedding in order to rid ourselves of anything that blocks our soul progress or gets in the way of our long term security, Sirius asks that we undertake this work in order to live our highest potential. Sirius connects us to our creative talents and the Moon connects us to inspiration and intuition. However, we need to understand that if we pursue our goals – even creative ones, with no thought for others we become dangerous to both ourselves and others. The flip side of this aspect is therefore ruthlessness exposed and we may see examples of people who have operated from the highest motivations and those who run roughshod over others in the pursuit of their ambitions.

Mercury joins Venus and Mars in Aquarius also on the 5th and gives us the ability to broadcast ourselves, our ideas and our individuality in unique ways. The now waning Moon moves into Leo on the 8th and in there meets Jupiter and Juno and all three make a fabulous trine to Aquarius’ ruler Uranus in action-centered Aries. What’s the message here? Don’t imitate others. This is your journey – not theirs and one you and you alone are destined to live.

The 10th sees the Sun and Pluto meet in Capricorn. Pluto is all about transformation but Capricorn is all about establishment. The Sun shows us where an irresistible force meets an unmovable object. Something fundamental has to change – around what we have established in our personal lives or outside in the collective. Or perhaps both. Release this and step into a higher potential this week.
