A rather fantastic and difficult to behold alignment occurs this week in Pisces. We heard a lot about Pisces over the last few weeks and rightfully so. With Mercury, now direct, joining Venus and Neptune all clustered together in this mutable water sign, this astrological alignment points to a rather surreal theme. As we know Mercury commands dialog and communication. Venus, in Pisces holds an exhalted position that delivers a warm, harmonious aesthetic to the tone of the times, whereas Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, holds sway over our perceptions. We are likely to witness a period of false narratives and wild spin. This is classic astrology as born out in the headlines we read and the news we are being fed. As mentioned many times, this supports the “fake news” narrative perfectly. With that in mind we should review what we read quite carefully, since subterfuge and deceit are quite common under these skies To add to the confusion factor, we may not be able to discern who is speaking the truth and who is spinning a tale of falsehoods. Perhaps we are best to withhold judgement until the inner planets (Mercury, Venus) move on. A silver-tongued devil may be amongst us and we are easily swayed.
The rest of the action this week occurs in Capricorn, where Saturn, Pluto and the south node are working together. The south node represents our past and our ability to learn from it. What path did we stray down that has now come back to haunt us? What did we chose wrongly that now must be corrected? Have we sacrificed our future through the misdeeds of the past? This karmic link forces us to right that which is wrong. With both Saturn and Pluto in this position, we are facing a period of deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction. Since Saturn and Pluto are slow moving outer planets, the unfolding of events will be noticeably tedious. Change is an onerous presence under this influence as we bend towards a new way forward. We are living though a time that is slow and arduous and we may never know the results of this theme for many years to come. Great shifts in society and culture are only truly understood through the lens of history. As such, the results of this alignment may not be apparent until well into the middle of this century and beyond. The Sun makes a challenging angle to Saturn and Pluto this week and may trigger a preview of what this might entail as the years roll on. Look for foundational structures, both physical and mental, that might sweep across our establishments and infrastructure.
