Three sets of planetary pairs are what help to define the themes of the week ahead. Planetary pairs are when two planets are roughly at the same degree within an orb (difference ) of no more than 6 degrees. This may vary with other astrologers, but anything beyond 6 degrees the influence begins to wane. The closer the planets are in the pair, the greater the influence. Let’s start with the Sun which is paired this week with Mercury. The Sun highlights our ability to communicate and expound. Mercury is the planet of communication. With the Sun there adding light to the pairing correspondence, detail, and self-expression are all highly likely. In this case, the Sun and Mercury currently in Taurus are in a harmonious angle to another planetary pair, that of Saturn and Pluto both in Capricorn. Saturn speaks to responsibility and Pluto is about regeneration. When we examine this double pairing we can see a combined influence that stretches into discussions about the best way forward in a responsible, meaningful and refined manner. The Saturn/ Pluto conjunction is a slow moving one that is currently in retrograde. With both planets in retrograde we can imagine a discussion taking place that lays out new rules for a more accountable and more constructive rebirth of a theme in our lives. This is occurring in all of our lives, the details of which are unique to each of us in some capacity. Contact me to find out where this is unfolding in your life.
The third planetary pair is with Venus and Uranus both in the early degrees of Taurus. Venus is the ruler of Taurus so it brings a special harmonious element to the unruly and unpredictable Uranus. This combination spells out a possible sudden flash of affection or beauty. Since Uranus is the planet that delivers the unexpected as well as the innovative and rebellious, we can imagine a wide array of events or chance meetings as a result. Perhaps the best way to understand the Venus/Uranus connection would be that of a romantic interlude that happens quite suddenly and without precedence. The combination of beauty and spontaneity yields some rather startling results. By the same token this combination may also deliver a wonderful surprise of some positive nature. Astrology is a series of stories that are told through the influence of the planets and their unique attributes. The story that could come from this alignment is that of love, rebellion, innovation and beauty. How that story is woven into our daily lives will vary widely just as our lives vary widely. The important takeaway is how this manifests itself in your life. Will you recognize it? It may be a powerful chance encounter with a stranger, or possibly a surprise that arrives with a gift that is distinctly novel.
