Sun in Aries: Return of the Emperor
A much easier week is in store, and productive developments offer assurance that we are moving in the right direction. Venus continues it’s transit of Taurus amplifying sensuality, creativity and love. Venus sextile Neptune on Tuesday encourages a stellar romantic ambience, as sensitivity to the most gentle nuances is heightened and there is a lovely serendipity stimulated within a rendezvous or meeting. The Moon transits Taurus Sunday into Monday, augmenting these harmonious vibrations, particularly on Sunday Eve. Towards the end of the week, Venus square Jupiter will prove pivotal within our relationships and there may be a tendency to overdo it, either in a romantic alliance or in expensive purchases. From Taurus – Leo there is a genuine urge towards decadence and pleasure, (and some drama!). The atmosphere mutually encourages generosity, probably the better manifestation of the energy.
Communication is featured at the beginning of the week as Mercury sextiles Pluto on Sunday. From the Stargazer Atlas: “We can dig deep today and seek to really understand the underlying truth. Communication will tend to sensitive, secretive or profound subjects, and through conversation and correspondence we can discover the hidden essence of a subject or person. Research, investigation and getting a point across with conviction all benefit from this energy. Likewise, if you need to have a serious conversation, or get to the bottom of an issue, this is a good time to do so.”
Sun trine Saturn (4 Aries/Leo) on Wednesday offers a very stabilizing environment in which we can continue to work towards our long range endeavors. We begin to see the fruition of goals and initiatives made around November 17th, 2014, during the conjunction phase at 25 Scorpio. Saturn’s harsher realities combine fruitfully within our self expression (the Sun) and we get assurance and results that the efforts we put fourth around that time are producing a positive outcome. This is a good time to attend to tasks that require a patient and methodical approach. Meanwhile, the Moon from Gemini harmonizes Jupiter and Uranus, stimulating the rest of the Grand Fire trine, making this a spectacular day for conversations or social activities centered around creative discovery or discourse. There is a genuine sense of progress and we can enlarge the scope of our activities in a way that will endure over time.
The 2nd Quarter Moon Friday (6′ 19″ Cancer) taps into the gentle harmonic being stimulated by Venus and Neptune. Our determination to make progress on the initiatives we encountered during the eclipse last week will be aided by a creative approach and soft touch. A highly empathic and compassionate vibration will underscore our contacts and activities. From there sensitivities become aroused as the Cancer Moon makes more abrasive aspects to Uranus – Pluto – Mars through Saturday. We are indeed making substantial progress, but will be made aware of contentious influences that are still a part of the landscape. One week down until the Libra eclipse, this is the time to shore up for the really dynamic changes on tap for April 4th!
