I may be showing my age here, but there was once a time when big epic movies once started with overture music. For a few minutes before the curtains opened and the movie started, music would play that would set the tone for the film one was about to see.
Yes, movies often once began with curtains opening. So I’m old. Sue me.
Think of this week as the overture music for what is to come in the next month or so. In coming weeks, there will be epic grand drawings and mighty clashes. For the moment though, get comfortable, enjoy the popcorn, and start doing some planning about what you want out of your life in the next year.
On Monday, Venus square Saturn will tend to mess with people’s love lives a bit. Perhaps not disastrously, but in a way that will be hard to pin down: you see, Venus is also quincunx Neptune at the time. The square is a difficult aspect and Saturn is a difficult planet, and the quincunx is an inherently weird aspect and Neptune is … well, kinda weird. If anything goes wrong with your love life or money supply at that time, your best approach may be simply to quietly take it on the chin and don’t panic.
On Wednesday, the Moon is Void of Course in Taurus virtually all day. If you decide to start nothing new and do nothing but loaf around and eat all day, congratulations! You understand astrology!
Saturn is grinding to a halt after its long and slow retrograde through Scorpio, and begins to move forward on Sunday. Pay close attention to your birth chart, and note where 4 to 5° of Scorpio and Pisces are. These points are powerfully energized now, as Saturn and Neptune build to a rare exact trine. That’s some powerful astrological magic happening, and if you are wise and thoughtful with it, you can apply those energies to straighten out almost anything in your life that you may find has been screwed up for a while. Meanwhile, Jupiter in Cancer is warming up behind the scenes to join the Zodiac’s Big Show in two week’s time. Face whatever challenges you’re facing this week with faith and optimism, and the payoff will begin soon. And note that 4 to 5° Scorpio/Pisces business in your chart. There are big things to come there.
(Next week: Spartacus leads the slave revolt and fills the screen with drama and action, before he and his buddies are all brutally killed.)
