This is a big week everyone, hold on to your seats because the wheel of cosmic fortune is turning and we are along for the ride. Starting from this week into next week, we will see a powerful karmic rebalancing with Pluto squaring the north and south nodes. Venus turns retrograde in Leo, resurfacing our sense of desire and longing for affection. Chiron stations retrograde, reminding us where we are still working on healing ourselves. The Sun trines Neptune offering a moment of divine downloads but also some ungrounded vortexes. The Sun enters Leo, bringing us into the middle of the second quarter and then immediately meets up with Pluto to illuminate the changing of the gods. But that’s not all! The main astrological transit we have been waiting for is the Moon’s nodal shift into the Aries / Libra axis from Taurus / Scorpio. We are in for a wild ride!
We start out with a New Moon in Cancer at 24° 56’ at 11:31 am pdt. The New Moon sets us into an introspective space, nostalgic and reflective. The Moon travels through Cancer, Leo, Virgo and ends the week in Libra highlighting the third quadrant of the zodiac which draws us towards exploring our creative selves with wild ambition. How we show up in our social sectors will be a hot topic and the drive to open up to a whole new network pushes us out of our self-proclaimed shell. The Sun navigates its way through the last decan of Cancer completely this week, the tarot associated with this arena is the 4 of cups and similarly to last week, we are still learning to process how we feel about regret and loss, overcoming the throes of dissatisfaction to pull ourselves into a place of gratitude. The Sun also meets with Pluto as it moves into the sign Leo, activating a t square with the nodes. The end of the week will be very revealing regarding power dynamics within the political structures that have traditionally governed society’s systems. Pluto plays the role of the reaper, ushering in a new era while showing the old way out the door. This week will be quite eye-opening, to say the least!
