Now that Mercury has gone direct and is entering its own sign of Gemini, today, on Monday June 13, is time to explore the wild and chaotic ride of this last month. Regardless of what sign you are or what your chart shows, the eclipses of May in Taurus and Scorpio have spoken in a very hard and harsh way. With transit Saturn (the reality check planet) causing large amounts of stress on the eclipses of Taurus and Scorpio ask each of us to explore the finite details of our day to day living expenses as well as our business expenses.
Taurus and Scorpio are the signs associated with either your money and values or other peoples’ monies and values. They also include monies owed to you by others and the obligations you have to others. This is not a fun thing to look at. Bottom line is that any sort of reality check is not comfortable. Discomfort is often associated with Saturn. And Saturn’s message is always about facing what needs to change. This is easy to say and not easy to do.
The fact that Saturn is in the sign of Aquarius, the sign of information, also speaks volumes of where or how we get our information and questioning whether it is valid information or not. Now that Mercury, the thinking planet and the god, Hermes or Mercury, who went in and out of hell unscathed, is starting today – be brave and look into those dark corners regarding resources, investments, incomes, that need shaking up and changing.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday (at 23˚ Sagittarius) brings these issues to the forefront. Sagittarius is about freedom. Freedom comes in many forms. Freedom can be taking a trip or in a deeper level, freeing yourself from those things that are holding you back or keeping you frozen creating an energy field that is not moving. Sagittarius is also the sign that has to do with fortune and reaching out to others to ask for information that is real and valid is another way to handle this week’s energies.
Thursday’s Saturn and Sun complement allows you to put a plan in place and work on long term goals that offer that ‘freedom’ that you need right now. The week ends with Venus and Saturn at a square (stress that motivates) to each other. Get what needs getting done earlier in the day or week and then later on Saturday, enjoy a little break even if it means going out for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Breaks are so much better when you’ve done the more difficult challenges of getting your finances and lives in order.
