Rhythms. Patterns of rhythms. Cycles of patterns of rhythms.
The study of the magic of the correspondence between celestial cycles and earthly events...That's the field of the rich serendipity which is Astrology.
One important pattern in Astrology is the rhythm of 3. And as we all know, 3 times is the charm.
Venus, our lovely Aphrodite, and Mercury, our mental trickster, have both just gone direct which means they will each be conjoining with Pluto, Master of Hades, for the third and final time in this cycle.
Mercury will do so this week on the 11th. This is a revisit of issues and events which have already been activated during the past six weeks that are culminating on Friday.
What's been percolating for you?
As Mercury, sometimes known as the archetype Loki, passes over Pluto, a final transformation of our individual perceptions, our way of seeing things, is likely.
How have your thoughts about yourself and the World been changing? Perhaps you are suddenly clear on where you have been in denial. Or others have been in denial…
What's altered in your perceptions? What's come up from Plutonian depths to be acknowledged and revised?
Friday is the release point as the Phoenix of thoughts can rise in freedom from the death of misconceptions and so enlighten our minds!
Venus will have her final encounter with the Lord of the Underworld in March but you can feel the energy mounting now. What will Aphrodite have to say as she prepares to return to her home in the land of Light?
Perhaps Mars, as he catches up with her on the 11th, will plant seeds of assertiveness. These two will be running together for the coming month as Cosmic consorts.
Not necessarily smooth sailing for them in Capricorn but they ARE traveling as a couple.
Romantic relationships will have the momentum of Mars even if there are rough patches to work through.
The Moon begins the week in late Aries but moves into peaceful, stable Taurus on Monday. She is exalted here as she sends comforting beams to Earth.
She's building her rhythms through the energies of Taurus and Cancer that will peak and shine In a Leo full Moon on the 16th, the great Snow Moon.
There is a mystical secret that the Snow Moon harbours.. .but more about that next week!
