Week of July 22nd 2013
We should still be basking in the glow of the grand water trine, but we are also going to be feeling the energy of Mars as he slips in to an exact conjunction with Jupiter at 6 degrees Cancer. Although Mars typically does not do so well in Cancer as a rule (it is in its “fall” or weakened mode), the influence and motive still exist in some manner. This also places Mars in opposition to Pluto at the same time that it is conjunct Jupiter, so the impact of this transit will be large. Jupiter expands the theme and aggression can be a by-product. Mars opposing Pluto usually means a sparky conflict of some sort and these have been known to be dramatic in the past. Aggression is the word of the time. Mars will be moving closer to a direct opposition to Pluto over the next several days.
Meanwhile Mercury is a direct square to Uranus and also opposing Pluto. Although Mercury is separating from Pluto but still close enough to rebellious Uranus to set off a fire of sorts. Early in the week we see a full Moon in Aquarius which could add to the tension as humanitarian themes come under fire in a direct link to Uranus, again, in a rebellious and intellectual-discussion. With Mars marching towards a tense angle to both Pluto and Uranus we can expect to aggression on the rise. Despite the presence of cooling water energy of the outer planets we must be mindful of the power of action especially late in the week when the Moon drifts into contact with Uranus and supplies the sudden emotional trigger. Watch out for flare-ups and sudden bursts of activity employment, budgets and housing come under scrutiny.
True astrology comes from accuracy. When you know the exact details of your chart, you get the instructions for your own particular journey. These are the instructions. Like an operators manual. Using birth date, place and time you see where the action is in your life. Accurate, predictable, validating, in short, astrology works. I have been working with charts and the planets for years and the timing and action is real and validating beyond belief. Listen each week to “Turning of the Wheel” on Contact Talk Radio at 11:00 AM. The shows are then podcast on iTunes for later in the week. Write to me for a reading firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my website at www.turningofthewheel.com.
