Venus goes direct today in Libra! So that’s great for all Librans & Taureans. BUT Mecury who has been in Sagittarius starts retrograde today…and will do so till 7th December. So that’s difficult 3 weeks for Sagittarians, Geminis and Scorpios.
During this retrograde period, Mercury will slip back into Scorpio on 1st December and keep going retro till 7th Dec..
ps. Sagittarians will have it tough between 17th Nov – 1st Dec. Then then it eases up. On 13th December, direct-Mercury re-enters Sagittarius.. But as that’s direct, Saggies get a chance to sort things proactively any issues that surface between next 2 weeks. Just be relieved that because of the Mercury slip back into Scorpio, Saggies don’t get the full 3 weeks of tough-love from this merc-retro period.
Less than 3 days to go..for the culmination of an intense stressful aspect that has been influencing many of us for the past few weeks..! Yes, we have already been in the grips of this one.. !
Powerful yet small planet(oid) Pluto ..currently transiting the sign of Capricorn, is being opposed by usually jovial Jupiter which is retrograding in the water sign of Cancer! This aspect will reach its intense culmination on Friday 31st January 2014..around about 9.15am (gmt) in the morning.. So the night of 30th is probably the one that we all have to ensure the most!!
Oppositions are stressful.. where energies of the opposing planets clash..! It doesn’t matter which side you are on.. you are going to feel the opposition..from the other side.. !
The signs mostly affected will be Sagittarius & Scorpios.. and also Cancerians & Capricorns.
In this case, energies of Jupiter- expansions, wisdom, generosity, law, exploring distant horizons or cultures..are going to be challenged…as will that of Pluto – power, sexual urges, secret desires, compulsions, obsessions! This intense jarring will result in side effects such as over-indulgence, gambling, need for exercising power and manipulating others, sexual obsessions or perversions, experimenting with the occult, magic or spells..and so on!
Do not gamble with other people’s money.. Do guard against secrets spilling out.. and do not probe into others’ secrets…!
How to navigate this difficult time? Well, am sure you already have been.. as these frustrating energies have been building up..! Oppositions can only be resolved by compromises and perhaps even some sacrifices..! The saving grace can come from the beneficial qualities of the planets involved…such as farsight, wisdom, deeper understanding of human nature, and perhaps some travels..
Pluto symbolises transformation.. Jupiter symbolises higher learning.! Use those key qualities for resolutions.. Also utilise the energies of the signs..where the oppositions are taking place..
Compromise means not just giving up a little of your own needs, wants and demands, but also understanding..and even taking on the qualities and suggestions of the opposing forces! In other words, allow some of the opposing energies to permeate you…and become part of you.. !
Then, true transformation takes place!
There is one big good news.. On the same day, Venus ..which has been going retrograde, goes Direct! That’s going to be good…for all things ruled by Venus.. from romances, relationships, arts and finances..! 🙂
