Hello, I'm Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 13th March 2017. Paradoxes are a big part of astrology, because one influence can be largely positive, and another largely negative, and how this is balanced is down to the skill of the astrologer using a technique called weighting. How? Well, in other words weighting the importance of key aspects, and divining which will have the greatest impact.
This week has two mega planetary influences, and the first runs on from last week and involves Jupiter, the planet of growth. Of course Jupiter has been in opposition to Uranus for some months and this has been creating a very vibrant kind of energy, pushing us to improve our knowledge, and at times to step outside of our comfort zones. But last week Jupiter started to tangle with the tiniest but perhaps most potent of the outer planets, in Pluto, in a repeat of what happens through November and half of December last year. This is repeated this week, and this can give us a heightened desire to succeed and to believe that through sheer willpower and positivism things can change for the better. Well perhaps some can. But it's very important not to push so hard that we trample over the feelings of others, in our desire to get ahead of to achieve our goals.
Now, running in tandem to this aspect is Sun square Saturn, the other of the outer planet "big beasts". This is the last full week of the Sun passing through the sign of Pisces this year. So we are working towards the end of a period of reflection, preparing for some fabulous new starts that the new celestial year will create from the 20th of March. However, with the Sun being checked by the restrictive energies of Saturn from Tuesday through 'till Sunday, our vitality could collectively be affected by this, with a greater potential to feel drained than usual. Information can come into the open which is awkward or which we find more difficult to receive. Some of this information may prove faulty, so if there is any situation where you need your facts to be correct, do double check them. Pisces can be a very compassionate but fluid influence, while Saturn in Sagittarius is all about knowledge. It's possible that someone will find it difficult to understand the level of support and commitment that is being invested in a situation - perhaps because it is a more nuanced, and could be very critical or very demanding. However challenging it may be for us to fulfill our responsibilities, perhaps in the face of this critique, we do need to try to do so.
However, the week begins with Mars becoming established in the sign of Taurus. This is a very sensual location for this planet, and can increase our desire for life's more pleasurable pursuits, material goodies, and also greater intimacy in love relationships. Mars also forges a semi-sextile, which is very positive and enabling, to Mercury the planet of communication, which arrives in the sign of Aries on Tuesday. This combination can see us in the mood to initiate and get on the front foot around our thinking but also in our actions.
And talking of nuances and subtleties, Venus actually forges a very good link with Neptune through to Saturday. This suggests that when it comes to our love lives it's is going to be important to stay tuned to our sixth senses. And despite the fact that the Sun's angle to Saturn can create a feeling of constraint the weekend sees Venus combining beautifully with Mercury, which in the sign of Aries can be quite playful, and lead to some bright and bubbly interaction.
So this week is not going to be all about challenges, it's more about marshaling the available energy we do have in an appropriate way, and also given ourselves the chance to create the diversions and have the fun to deal with the more draining and tricky of impacts, that the tough influences can have.
