At last, a rare week without major forces hammering at us. November’s eclipses may still be visiting departures and awakenings upon us, but they will have the effect of aftershocks rather than registering high on the Richter scale.
We’re in a phase of consolidation now. It’s a week of sorting through rubble real and emotional, making decisions and commitments and refocusing our lives accordingly.
We’re responding to the building cooperation between Saturn, the ruler of structures, and Pluto, lord of death and rebirth, and also the agent of unavoidable change that is working on our most fundamental structures these days. The two lords are moving into a sextile, which my astrologer colleague Kathy Kerston calls an offer you can’t refuse, and which will be exact next week. This aspect heightens the teamwork vibe coming off the pair, from each being in the other’s sign, or in mutual reception. This condition blends their energies, so that when one acts or reacts, the other participates or feels the effects.
Change has been rumbling and erupting in identifiable areas of your life since June at least. Since October, when Saturn entered Pluto’s home base Scorpio, their mutual reception has been harnessing the ongoing destruction and regeneration to stabilizing and commitment energies.
They’re converging now. Let light into dark, dirty, diseased and scary places and tidy up. Face so-called reality. Evolve!
The week has a few long stretches of time especially suited to soul-searching and personal house cleaning. For Tuesday evening, Friday morning and the greater part of Sunday, the Moon is void of course (beyond major aspects to planets until she enters the next sign). Don’t push for particular outcomes then, except maybe for actual cleaning — I’m finding Moon voids well suited for activities you’ll have to do over eventually by their nature. The impending Saturn/Pluto sextile promises a phenomenally productive experience during these voids.
Think of them as times for laying bricks or paving stones. Simply being in the midst of all that has been happening furthers the process inordinately — because the bottom line of Saturn and Pluto’s teamwork is being in the moment.
Messages have special importance this week, and stillness will help you recognize, listen to and assimilate them. Mercury, cosmic messenger and ruler of vehicles for information and movement, is crossing the north node on Friday. On a collective level, watch for information that could affect affect huge swaths of us — or point the way to the future — pertaining to taxes, debt, surveillance, big money and big secrets. Personal conversations are likely that clear up mysteries, address profound issues, create uncommon intimacy and cut fraying ties.
