All this week the Sun in Virgo Squares with Mars in Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius is very upbeat, direct and can even see us all getting more active, perhaps even athletically so, especially for the non couch potatoes amongst us. However this Square can see the uninhibited, freedom loving nature of Mars challenged by the Sun’s desire for precision in Virgo. How will this play out? Well, we could be rather less minded to fulfil those everyday tasks, roles and obligations, that otherwise we might take in our stride. So if anyone asks you to do them a favour, and one which will impinge on your freedom, think twice before agreeing.
Now, as is often the case, there are some paradoxical energies threaded through the heavens too. And the Sun actually forges a truly wonderful link to tiny Pluto. Pluto is the planet of power, truth, secrets, sex and hidden motivations, but also it is the planet of transformation, and in the sign of Capricorn , linking to the Sun in Virgo, and both of these Earth signs, this can see something really quite tangible shape up. Most of all this is where we will of put in a significant amount of effort or where outer events conspire to force change upon us, which though, on first glance, we may not choose could turn out to be good for us. For many, there could be some kind of breakthrough around work, property, or even health issues.
This is also week that sees Venus in its home zone of Libra forges a great link to the rather more steadying influence of Saturn . If you are fortunate enough to be receiving any advice, then it could be that the person concerned is someone who proves trustworthy and whose clarity of thought, and knowledge, blends well with an ability to relate well. In a personal context this aspect suggests if you’re lucky enough to be getting closer in any kind of relationship, it could be tie that is going to endure for some time to come.
Speaking of relationships Jupiter, the planet of growth, optimism, expansion, and more traditionally of good fortune, moves into the sign of Libra for the first time in 12 years on Friday. Jupiter will be in this location for the next 12 months, and is encouraging us all to invest more in diplomacy, give-and-take, sharpening up our listening skills, and embracing natural justice.
Friday however, also sees a Quarter Moon in the sign of Sagittarius, clashing with the Sun in Virgo and this is going to re-emphasise the right angle between the Sun and Mars. In short, under promise and over deliver is going to be a good mantra for the whole of this week, for us all.
