Today looks to be a simple, optimistic, and light-hearted day. The Moon and Jupiter in Sagittarius are engaged in a fiery and energetic exchange with the Sun and Venus in Leo, encouraging us to take a break and find fun and adventure.
As we are all aware, horrific events have occurred this week. And there is an over-arching atmosphere of fear and contraction that’s been building for months. Many people I talk with have had a hard time thus far in 2019.
You might wonder at us astrologers talking all this light-hearted shit, right?
Astrologically, the meeting of Saturn, Pluto, and the lunar south node in Capricorn is THE major influence now, causing much hardship this year and next. Plus, the United States is approaching its Pluto return, manifestations of which we are experiencing already.
It’s not an easy time, but you knew that.
In the meantime, the inner or personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars) have temporarily escaped from that difficult Cancer/Capricorn axis into sunny Leo. Thus we can pause, rest, take a break from the doom and gloom, and maybe have some well-deserved fun.
Those of you who have planets and angles in the cardinal signs of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, and Libra are more personally affected by the Saturn/Pluto/Capricorn mashup, so it may be harder to find the light side.
But make an effort! Unplug. Turn off the news, take a social media break. Stop feeding yourself with all the horror of the times. Gather some friends and have a picnic or a day at the beach. Today is a perfect day to raise the vibe!
