We are surrounded by contradictory energies at the moment, which may leave us feeling that we’re not really sure who we are, what to believe, what to strive for, what to let go and whether we should even be wondering about any of these things in the first place!
Uranus is now in the final week of its retrograde phase before stationing direct on 17thDecember. Between now and then it encourages us to reflect upon the past five months to discern its action in our lives.
This month we are challenged to resolve early life issues in order to embrace our present and redesign our future to new specifications. The planetary focus is not on specific spectres from our childhood that haunt us per se, but upon the unconscious responses and reactions we learned at a young age, which continue to operate even now.
Today we encounter a waxing Quarter Moon in Sagittarius (5:09 p.m. GMT). In the run up to this we have a Grand Trine in fire above us, firing up our enthusiasm and giving us courage to face the challenges of our day.
This long-awaited week begins with an interesting emphasis upon duality and paradox. The heavens encourage us now more than ever, to embrace the apparent contradictions and differences in ourselves, our lives and our world, and recognise their inherent connections no matter how much it may test and challenge us to do so.
Today Mars, Uranus and Pluto join forces until 20th. This potent combination of cosmic giants may cause us to react to life in ways that create unnecessary disruption whilst contributing little towards our original intentions.
