There is lots to say today :)
The Sun sextiles Mars before the Sun rises on this Sunday morning… fortifying us with a positive attitude and we feel motivated to make decisions and take the initiative to move forward. The Sun then connects to Pluto, the planet of transformation, evolution and regeneration. The light of the Sagittarius Sun illuminates and seeks the higher Truth. We must evolve and that evolution calls on Pluto’s energy… transformation, releasing the old and leading us through the gateway of the new.
This is a big Pluto kind of day…some things need to be transmuted or transformed.
A Mars/Pluto Stepping stone becomes exact at 2:45 PM, further emphasizing a transformational theme concerning intensity, drama and power. If we want to experience being powerful, it will come from learning how to Empower our Selves and not from winning a power struggle with some one else. If you have given your power away to someone, it’s up to you to reclaim it.
Use this stepping stone wisely and it can take us far. It might not be comfortable, but intense change usually isn't , but what it is … is worth it 10 fold. We are clearing huge amounts of fear out of the collective and we must continue to remember that Love is a Real choice. Free contracts - Love expands.
The week ahead sets off some turbulent Astrological weather that leads up to an inspiring new Moon this coming Friday morning. I have always found this approach helpful when studying the cycles and rhythms of this world. The approach is to notice the upcoming New Moon, which is always about planting seeds and new beginnings and then consciously choose to clean and clear as much as I can in the days before it. Swab the deck, sweep your psychological porch, clean out the dark corners of your emotional closets.
Mars is a trigger that activates what ever planet he connects with; this stepping stone (square) to Pluto will bring pressures that lead to shifts, like tectonic plates in the earths crust.
Mars will form a bridge (opposition) with Uranus the Awakener on Thursday, just hours before the New Moon in Sagittarius. We will be reevaluating some of our most fundamental beliefs as a bridge between Chiron and Jupiter will square (stepping stones) the Sagittarius New Moon from both ends of the bridge. Wisdom, healing, alignment, truth and Soul growth will all be playing a huge part. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and this stepping stone aspect is a major turning point.
Start prepping for it now!
