Pop culture has been selling the sun sign—where in the zodiac the sun was located at birth—as the whole picture of astrology since the ’60s when amateurs used it for a pickup line. The Moon sign, which describes our emotions and represents where the moon was at birth, is as equally important and so has the spotlight this week.
The two aspects (that is, planets making angles to each other) grabbing my attention this week are the conjunction between Moon and Pluto and the Sun/Pluto trine. This could be a moment of greatness mixed with intense emotional disruption! Prepare for the truth to come out—will it be freeing or downright traumatic? It’s a make-it-or-break-it minute in the cosmic scheme of life.
We often explore what astrology does for us in regard to influence, self-discovery, limitations and obstacles. Let’s take a novel approach and look at what it does not do for us! Skeptics love to debunk my favorite metaphysical application; let’s balance out the axis so we get a cleaner picture of how the stars work. They move and are alive, just like us!
Chasing dreams is part of life. We chase romance, adventure and our passions, and we carry the high expectation that a dream come true will lead to happiness and good fortune. Illusions, however, are egoic deceptions stirring lust, self-righteousness and false perceptions. They can become destructive when we disregard others’ feelings. The zodiac provides lessons in both, because knowing the difference is half the battle.
Conjunction in astrology occurs when two heavenly bodies get close in orbit. Some tight moments are better than others! For instance, in early spring Venus conjuncts Jupiter creating a hot time for flings but a perfect moment for new creative businesses to flourish. Mars and Mercury conjunct and make mischief and when moon and sun align, we have an eclipse!
Don’t rub authority figures the wrong way now. If playing around with younger friends or siblings is guaranteed trouble, prepare for the consequences. Pick your battles with lovers, too.
The zodiac holds a mysterious and powerful spiritual influence over life on earth; we can’t deny it. Astrology is like a heavenly clock always reminding us what time it is—at equinoxes we know it’s spring or autumn and the solstices tell us it’s summer or winter. Everything from societal trends to personal inspiration has its time to bloom. When’s yours?
The spring equinox in your sign comes early this year, creating pressure for deadlines and decisions, or goals blooming sooner than anticipated! Rushing into things may seem uncomfortable but necessary.
What stimulates or suppresses our creativity? Why are some of us more coordinated with athletics or video games over others? The zodiac is plethora of information guiding us in the direction of natural abilities and spontaneous gifts. How we use these or ignore them is up to the individual. Let’s explore some obvious and not-so-apparent skills we possess.
Tarot and astrology share an interesting link as certain cards in this deck have a connection to the zodiac. The mysteries of these two arts go way back, and we’ll take advice from both subjects this week. The stars are ever moving, changing our fates and the tarot likewise reflects how our paths change course with every step or decision we make. So be aware and at times take risks!
The Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius; when does one end or the other begin? Even astrologers debate astrological age and sub-age transitions. There’s no doubt that we’re in some heavy changes right here in our lifetimes. Where will you find your place in the new world order that’s being laid before us? Perhaps a look backwards through the lens of the ages can provide some answers!
