This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of an Aquarius Moon, with all kinds of aspects to consider. Let’s dissect a few of them just to make sense of things that might complicate our reactions and experience if we don’t pay attention to what’s going on.
Right off the bat I can see that Venus is squaring the Moon’s Nodes. At the same time, Jupiter is trining Juno, one of the marriage/committed relationship asteroids. The asteroid Pallas is sitting halfway between Mercury, and Ceres, and Uranus is entering a trine with Vesta.
The trine between Jupiter and Juno tells me we are examining our relationships, trying to decide whether they are working for us, or not. This aspect relates our beliefs and philosophical principles to the relationship dynamic. Trines are traditionally considered to be positive indicators. In this case that means that we could very well be seeing eye-to-eye with our partners, our spouses, and our friends, and associates. If this is the way things are, it’s a good thing because one of the main requirements for a healthy relationship is rooted in the idea that we have a world view, or philosophy, or belief system that puts us on the same page.
When we hook up, what no one considers is the fact that in any relationship dynamic we exist as individuals. We each have our own Karma and our own changes to go through. As time passes, our experiences often alter the way we see things, and the partners who at one point saw eye to eye, can find their way to different perspectives and belief systems that shift the balance in the connection and disturb what everyone thought was a unified point of view.
In many ways, like I said before, Jupiter trining Juno indicates that we see eye to eye. It can also mean that we are in denial about the fact, or oblivious to the fact, that we are no longer seeing anything from the same perspective – or, that it has been so long since we checked in with each other, we’ve totally lost touch with where our friends and significant others are coming from. Under this influence, it’s always a good idea to catch up with each other, and tune in to the philosophical piece, between ourselves and the people we care about. It doesn’t have to be a big deal – but sometimes, when we sit down and get into that conversation, only to find out that while we were assuming we were “at one” with one another, our partner has decided to worship Satan… things can be totally disrupted.
With Pallas sitting at the midpoint between Mercury and Ceres, there is a tendency to maintain an agreeable front “for the sake of the kids.” This could also manifest as, “We can’t afford to upset Mom, so let’s not talk about the fact that our relationship is on the ropes,” or, another instance might be, “Don’t tell Mom but we’re ready to quit school and run of and join the circus!”
When Uranus and Vesta hook up, the job situation changes in ways that allow us to head off in a direction that gives us more freedom of expression in that part of our lives. Sometimes we get offered a new position that takes us away from what’s known and familiar, and this gives us a new lease on life. Sometimes it comes with an opportunity to work with groups. This has a way of creating repercussions in the lives of those close to us, and often gives rise to a radical rearrangement of our living circumstances.
In the midst of this cyclone, the gift lies in the opportunity to wake up. Let me leave you with that and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
