This month's cosmic energy is grouped together in the signs of Aries and Taurus. So there really is a sense of cycles completed and new beginnings unfolding. Pluto's arrival into Aquarius is stirring us all up in varying ways. Try and focus on which particular area of your life is currently highlighted as this will give you an indication as to where Pluto is urging you to transform. Likewise, tune into the sign of Pisces to see where newly arrived Pisces is trying to establish more ground rules and boundaries. The Sun, Jupiter and Chiron all in Aries as the month begins implies encouraging energy to heal the heart the body and soul. and Venus and Uranus in Taurus suggest slightly kinder energy abounds with the economy. Finally, I must mention the Full Moon in Libra at the beginning of the month bringing harmony and balance and the New Moon on the 20th which is a Solar Eclipse and the second New Moon in Aries this really underlines the new beginnings of energy for all of us.
HOW WILL THE PLANET FARE?
The general economy is still under the spotlight and Pluto in Aquarius points towards more turbulence within the automated world of digital currencies. There's a huge push envisaged by the younger financial visionaries to bring permanent changes to our monetary systems. And the older establishments are buckling under the pressure as they hold on to traditional methods.
With Jupiter closing in on our dwarf planet of rebellion Eris we are going to potentially see emotions pouring out onto the streets in various parts of the world like Israel Iran and closer to home in parts of Europe as the collective protest against perceived injustices and unfairness. This theme will continue whilst Pluto explores Aquarius over the next few weeks. It's as if Pluto has walked into the room where the party was held. The morning after the night before and looks around in disgust not quite sure where to start in the cleaning-up process. And as we all know, clearing up once we get into it can be quite brutal.
HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY?
Moving on from the above analogy of clearing up last night's mess the same energies can be applied in our own lives. Where and with what do we need to be ruthless? And it's no good drowning in Piscean emotion about it and looking around our lives in despair, it's about brutal self-honesty and taking better care of ourselves body mind and soul, some of you may have already been through this and be emerging into a new world and a new world. Especially those born under the signs of Capricorn and Cancer. And those of us who have been dragging our heels are being given a huge wake-up call. Now take what I've said above dilute it with some common sense and sip it gently and slowly. These major planet shifts take some getting used to and some people quite literally sail through these energies as if nothing much was going on. But empaths and sensitive people can really suffer with these cosmic shifts.
We are certainly living in interesting times. And the best way to navigate these energies is to ask them to show you the way, you'll be surprised how much the cosmos will oblige when we work in harmony with it.
