When I just look at the current transit chart and move it through the weekend, two things stand out: the way the Sun and Mars move closer to opposition with Earth (always opposed the Sun!) and Saturn; and the way it starts today with Jupiter quincunx the North Node (a measured point, not a body, of course) and then by Sunday Pacific time Venus sort of inches into the picture by conjunction with the South Node. These are just impressions, aside from the ideas we get from a complete accounting of current in-orb transits and perfections to aspects that occur this weekend; think of it as an intuitive reading of what might predominate over the next three days, to be added to the aspect and Lunar inventory included in ECLIPSE.
So what do I see? Problems with energy utilization, a stop-and-go of clear, productive, and Soul-expressive urges that is somehow stymied, like traffic flow stopped by an accident that happens round the corner: your car isn’t moving, but you don’t know why–you have fuel, the car runs, but the way is blocked. And with Saturn in Scorpio and the aspect an opposition, we shouldn’t be surprised that the reasons for suppression or repression won’t be clear. I’m not sure there’s any way to combat this, other than to accept that you might not make as much or the kind of progress you would like to. It might be tempting to blame things on the social sphere, our education (or some missing component of it), on religious intolerance, on publishing or broadcasting snafus, on foreign entities, or on travel issues, personal or otherwise (all Jupiter, and to include the matters of the House Jupiter rules in your natal chart). By Sunday, though, we may get a little more perspective, and so be a little less judgy of ourselves and others, as things are presented through the eyes of those we love, through financial matters, through seeing our values in action, and particularly by recalling what was precious to us in the past (Venus-SN). The potential for an internal reconciliation is possible as the weekend goes on and Venus semi-sextiles Jupiter, possibly offering us a way to expand on those things we love or desire, as long as we are willing to modify gently (the quincunx) our thoughts and communications (Jupiter in Gemini) so that they respect both ‘what was’ and our relationships and values (Venus-SN).
Have a great weekend! For more, see ECLIPSE!
