This week starts off with a great deal of personal self-reflection. This comes about best when you are in the moment tuning into your spirit. Starting your week off practicing meditation, tai chi, yoga, and the like will set the stage for you to allow more wisdom to reach you.
Neptune in Pisces is visited by the Moon early this week on Monday. This is a very watery blend of energy. Emotions and intuition will be heightened and there is a touch of magic where we meet the more mystical side of life. The experiences of life should feel like poetry. Even if we have some less than perfect moments, putting things in perspective and intuitively knowing that we are connected to a much larger reality brings a calmer acceptance. Listening to music and allowing your body to move and flow accordingly is suggested. Exploration of great poetry helps us experience our own reality with more depth and meaning.
This is also a great time to explore and experience alternative healing and mystical wisdom. Reiki energy work and crystal therapy is very in tune with the type of astrological atmosphere we have now.
Neptune also puts into focus the dichotomy between fantasy and reality and how we dance between these two perceptions. Pretty much everyone has some sort of addiction. Whether it be addiction to food, sex, alcohol, the internet, your phone, sunbathing, cigarettes, television, or any number of things, just about everyone has something they gravitate to on a regular basis in an attempt to find a temporary sense of comfort. Of course, acknowledging and admitting to whatever it is you turn towards, is the first step to creating change. This is a good time to look at the karma that you’ve been developing for yourself, and how you may be needing to bring more consciousness to your reactions to life.
Addictions are a way of avoiding reality. They are a temporary distraction from what needs our attention in life, and in that process we can become less affirmative and less decisive which leads to delays in getting the important things together in life. This is a good time to replace an addictive behavior with something you really want to do that makes you feel good about yourself. This is when you get in touch with your reality more closely, admitting and acknowledging what is stalling you from living your more fulfilled life.
Also on Monday, as we start the week, the Sun in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn stand across the sky from one another. This further encourages us to look at how we need to restructure our circumstances and acknowledge our feelings so we can transform our lives. It is a transitional time where we must step away from the ways that don’t serve us and purge them out of our lives. This is also a time to take a look at what’s happening out there in the world, in society and admitting how we feel about it.
With the Sun in Cancer we feel more self-protective. We want to feel nurtured and cared for, but usually it is how we care for ourselves that matters most, instead of waiting around expecting others to give us the care we need. Choosing to care for your body, mind and spirit is empowering. It’s also a good time to figure out solutions that help create greater balance between home and work life.
In social situations, many may feel just a bit more defensive by what others may do or say. The ego can get a little more irritated because it wants to feel secure and nurtured. The introverted side of each of us wants to feel safe within, comfortable in our own space, whereas the external world demands interaction.
So, with Pluto standing across from the Sun you could feel like our buttons are pushed by those who may present themselves as being above you. It could be a boss or higher up, or merely your own perception of how you measure up to others that creates the conflict. In personal situations, subtle jabs and condescending attitudes others project, whether intentional or not, can get under our skin a bit more than usual. But ultimately, it is how much you know yourself that determines how you will react to the world around you. Caring for yourself will determine how you react. This is a great time to take care of yourself by surrounding yourself with the types of people that allow you to feel comforted and nurtured in healthy ways.
In more global ways, it is the political structures of society that have us asking, “Does this feel right to me? Is this or that authority figure or organization supporting and nurturing my needs, the needs of my family, or the needs of the global family?” Finding healthy solutions that help you feel balanced and protected is important.
This week can have some prime moments of a counter culture that challenges the status quo. The Sun standing across from Pluto reminds us that we must shed light on change, to do away with what isn’t working, and to restructure the systems around us so they do allow us to feel like we are cared for and recognized as human beings, not simply numbered pawns used in a system.
With the Moon in Aries on Tuesday it's a great time to feel ready to start. Get yourself in order so you can feel empowered. How you feel within yourself should feel alive, alert and determined to go for it. Your home space could use a cleaning. Organize your office space as well, especially if you have a home office. Putting things in place and changing the energy of your space transforms the atmosphere immensely. Senses are heightened. Add wellness to your environment and get excited about your life.
As we move further into the week, Mercury enters Cancer on Wednesday at 2:51 p.m. ET. This adds to how we are thinking about caring for ourselves. This can be a time to find your comfort in talking to people close to you that you know genuinely care for you.
Later on Wednesday, Mars in Cancer connects with Neptune in harmony. Believing in yourself motivates and inspires the day. It’s a great time to kick that addictive behavior, whatever it may be for you personally. Empowerment is accessible when you are able to put energy into caring for yourself. However, if your emotions are a bit extra touchy, do be careful, cautious and considerate. The urge to defend yourself can be strong if feelings are hurt in any way. It’s a good time to start working out at home to build strength. It's also a good time to trust to your instincts. Your feelings can give you strength and courage to change your life. Your inner world and your desires have power to change the external world around you.
Sudden changes in emotions are more likely on Wednesday. The Moon in Aries gets close to Uranus. A strong will and a need for independence can color reactions more acutely. Channel those feelings into starting new, exciting projects. A spontaneous, creative approach can feel liberating.
Thursday the Moon enters Taurus. It's a great day to get in touch with the physical. The body needs our attention in order for us to feel grounded and present. Natural food, physical exercise, gardening and tree hugging are recommended. Nature gives us comfort, but also needs our comfort too. Nurturing your house plants creates a mutually beneficial aura of well being for you, the plant and your space. Taurus rules the throat, so sing to your plants. They love it. Spend some time in the garden getting your hands dirty and breathing in the fresh air. Feeling secure and present in the moment will help you feel better.
Friday is a great day for poetry and music. Continue to nurture your body now. Yoga, and dancing are great ways to feel present honoring your physical body. Getting connected to the physical while listening to music that moves you will feel really good today.
Saturday is an excellent day to rest and digest. Too much activity at home, or dealing with renovations, moving furniture and such can become stressful. Instead time to reflect and enjoy creature comforts and good foods is suggested. Relax if you can. If money matters are an issue of concern, a more relaxed, level headed, patient approach will help you feel more grounded. Take things slower. It's not time for rushed decisions. Think about long term implications and trust your gut instincts.
Later in the day on Saturday, the Moon enters Gemini. It would be a great night to read a book or gab on the phone.
On Sunday, we end the week with the Sun and Uranus teaching us to tread carefully with our egos and our feelings. Any pent-up fiery energy we have could be unleashed when our emotions are challenged. The motivation to start taking care of yourself more seriously can arise when you simply can’t ignore it anymore. Your needs require you to be wise.
Jupiter and Venus are of course continuing to interact in Leo. Now Venus has travelled past Jupiter, but will be returning again for another visit next month. This has us looking more closely at fate, luck, money and love and making adjustments along the way. This month can feel like a makeover is due, whether it be your hair, your clothes, your decor or renovations, the desire to bring more beauty into life and celebrate the artistic, creative side of life is enhanced. It can also feel like we’re on a wheel of fortune ride, where we don’t know for sure what the outcome will be on our bets, but it feels nice to be able to play the game.
It is certainly a great time to look at life more poetically. To bring faith, optimism, fantasy and reality together. Tuning into the rhythm of our bodies, of nature, of our surroundings, and nurturing our creativity gives us vitality and helps us feel like we’re connected to the good experiences life has to offer.
