Don’t sit idly and let life happen to you. Get off the couch. Put on your shoes. Pick up your keys and take the driver’s seat. It’s time to grab those recent developments and run with them.
After all the tumult of the past month, the skies are extending the invitation and incentive to engage consciously with the ongoing growth imperative, instead of being batted about like the toy of some relentless cosmic cat.
The process begins, as always, internally and continues externally. You know what just ended, who left, what broke, what started falling into place and what morphed into wondrous new directions. Processing all that occupies your attention and subconscious this week, but not uncomfortably so. You’re on board (or at peace) with much that’s happened. You’re ready to move on with the good developments; as for the not-so-good ones, well, see if you aren’t relegating them more and more in the past.
Friday brings the first inkling of the sea change coming this summer, when a succession of bodies complete a circuit of free-flowing energy called a grand trine with Saturn (structure and the status quo) and Neptune (illusion, transcendence and higher love). The eruptions, seismic shifts, wrecking balls and rollercoasters of April and May are giving way to rushing water of every imaginable kind — feelings, movement, developments and likely rain, rivers, lakes and oceans.
The first planet to move into the grand trine is Mercury, ruler of our minds, mouths and modes of getting around. He begins the approach this Friday when he leaves the comfortable freedom of his Gemini home base for the warm waters of Cancer. Be prepared for thoughts and talk to become less rational and more emotional, sentimental, sensitive and touchy. Sponge tendencies will be on the rise, so be sure to squeeze yours out regularly. (Tips are in my talk Navigating the Shift With Ease.)
His switchover into Cancer won’t be as absolute as in some years, at least at first, until the grand trine kicks in next week. On the same day Mercury moves into Cancer, action planet Mars grabs the baton as if in a relay race and moves into the sign Mercury has just left, Gemini. This hand-off will put a mental cast onto our drive, ambition and modes of expressing energy. He’ll be keeping our minds active, scheming ways to respond to, capitalize on and implement all the recent shifts. Gather data, work with it, and then let the currents lead you.
