This Solstice week really has some spice to it! The Sun will be in a difficult and tense angle to Jupiter in Aries and this can cause a feeling of frustration and not being heard in the crowd or a general feeling of helplessness. On the other hand, this alignment can also bring about aggression and a true fighting spirit. Either way, tensions rise one way or another as this energetic alignment makes itself known this week.
Mars in Aries is in conflict with Pluto, and this is a bit worrisome on the world stage as it could once again incite violence or escalate violence that already exists. On a personal level, this alignment brings resistance to higher authority in one form or another as well as a feeling of rebellion against rules.
Taking the edge off of the above is a lovely alignment between Venus and Pluto where Venus recognizes the personal gain to allowing transformation to occur without resistance and through the creation of and distribution of beauty. This will be especially true when Venus enters Gemini on Thursday.
These are very difficult times for everyone and the uncertainty factor has risen manifold. There is an end to it, but not soon, I’m afraid. We must learn to adapt and do our best to cope with the pressures put upon us by situations over which we have no control. This is where creative thinking comes in handy and Venus in Gemini will help with exactly that. We just have to ride this one out…it’s rough but hopefully we’re tough enough.
Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…
Keep looking after each other!
