Momentous changes are afoot this fortnight. The New Moon Eclipse occurred on the 12th at 20 degrees Cancer. Saturn re-enters Libra on the 21st followed by the Sun into Leo on the 23rd. Jupiter squares Pluto on the 25th and Saturn opposes Uranus on the 27th. Mars joining Saturn at the end of the month, pulling the T-Square into a tight formation. The Full Moon is at 3 degrees Aquarius on the 26th, sextiling the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction. With Cancer as our theme, you can expect family matters to be prominent right now. Sensitivity, nurturing, caring and supporting our loved ones and issues pertaining to the home prominent. It’s impossible to look at the aspects individually, being that they are all working in resonance with each other. Whether that be chaotic or harmonious is all in how you wish to perceive your reality and how you choose to view the happenings within it. Jupiter/Uranus in Aries pushing us and insisting that we change, become the powerhouse in our own lives. Pluto is demanding that we let go of our old ways of doing things, while Saturn and Mars aim to bring all this upheaval into some kind of balance and equilibrium. Eclipse energy also compelling movement and obvious enlightenment around heart issues. All that we hold near and dear to our hearts being illuminated now. Prioritizing our lives to assist the movement from fear to love, and remaining consistent in our attempts to modify our old behaviors, beliefs, patterning and habits through vigilance and the determination to change them.
