Hello, I'm Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 17th April 2017. The week begins with the Sun continuing its fine angle to Saturn, the planet of structure. If there is any strand in our situations where we have done thorough research, but it still requires some initiation and drive, this combination can be very helpful through to mid-week.
Mars in Taurus is also forging a sextile to Venus in Pisces from Monday through to Thursday. When this combination of planets are collaborating like this, it can be extremely helpful - especially around using creativity and imagination around utilizing our resources and finances. In a more specific romantic context, Venus does still continue to be challenged in a more obstructive ways of Saturn. So it's not going to be a time when we can take the enjoyment of life's pleasures, closest relationships, or our expenditure for granted, but there is an opportunity to make some progress, not least because the Sun is going to be joining up with Mars in Taurus on Thursday. However this is going to be a combination for just one day, for then on Friday Mars travels into Gemini, to begin a six-week transit, and Mercury rewinds from Taurus back into Aries. The retrograde on Mercury will continue in Aries through until 2nd May normal service is resumed on 20th of May when Mercury returns to 4° in Taurus, where the retrograde first began.
This week also sees a Quarter Moon in the sign of Capricorn, the second in the last month. Just a reminder that around our aspirations is going to be important to be aware of balancing our individuality with the expectations people may have a control or influence in their decisions that can affect us.
The Sun in Taurus is very much about the foundations of life, a sense of security, our appreciation of sensual pleasures, our connection to the ground quite literally, our appreciation of gardening, growing vegetables, being creative in terms of re-cycling, conservation, marshaling our finances or conversely enjoying some all-out retail therapy and some of life's little luxuries.
Mars in Gemini is a very vigourous influence and can have in a great impact on conversation. We may find ourselves debating for the fun in the next six weeks, or being much more physically active. Yet there is also the potential to be rather more easily bored, and that can lead to a sense of irritability and even exhaustion. Yet if we have something we want to say, and we are enthusiastic and engaged by it, the chances are we going to be expressing these ideas with enthusiasm, and a large slice of personality.
