The week begins with the Solar Eclipse in Leo. This Black Moon or 2nd lunation in the sign of Leo in the last month, certainly sends out a very powerful message not least that it links with the planet of spontaneity, Uranus . This energy is really pushing us to go outside our comfort zone over the next six months. Of course ironically Mars and Uranus were pushing us with the same message last week.
With the Sun and the Moon conjoined however in Leo, this is incredibly powerful, and with the North Node – the point of destiny, also in Leo, ever since early May, we are really entering a different phase. Now of course depending exactly on what zodiac sign you are this will have different meanings. But for us all generally, it really is a time of opportunity when it comes to being more devil may care, and embracing anything which gives us a sense of fulfillment. All this of course is driven by fire energy, so by firing ourselves up into action there is so much to go for.
Now, Mars continues in Leo to for this one last full week, and is in a great angle with Jupiter . This is more stable than its link last time with Uranus, and it can give us a sense of invincibility. This can of course be good in a way if it provides the spark to initiate, and relate to others in a powerful and meaningful way. What we do need to avoid doing however is being overconfident, or feeling everything will fall into our laps without too much effort on our parts.
Ironically, the Sun relocates on Wednesday into the sign of Virgo. If there are creative strands that we are developing, the trick is going to be in framing them in a practical way which gives tangible results. So this is the ultimate mixture of form and function.
Thursday also sees Saturn and its retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius. Any area of life which has felt particularly restrictive, and especially to do with knowledge, travel, international affairs, the law and so on, will stop start to ease up between now and December 19th, which completes Saturn’s journey through the sign.
The Leo dimension that’s been so potent however is boosted furthermore on Saturday this week, when Venus arrives in this sign, for a twenty eight day duration. This really is Charisma Central, and therefore there can be some real opportunities to be more playful sociable and self expressive, during this period.
