Mars square Jupiter

M A R S  + J U P I T E R

Last night at 7:30 pm EDT the square between Mars in Pisces and Jupiter in Sagittarius was exact, yet this aspect will linger in it’s influence for the next couple of days, with fading intensity. The square engagement between the planet of drive and the planet of expansion can cause some challenges, blocking an ease of flow.

.

It can also represent exaggeration, catalyzing expansion into overdrive. Matters can become a bit out of hand in regard to how we are using our energy this week, especially with Mercury retrograde adding a dissonance to communications if we aren’t careful. We are ready to break out of the gate with our plans, yet the untrained horses of idealism and highest purpose are charging at cross purposes.

.

We may feel overwhelmed or discouraged at first, how to make sense of it all? With Mars in shimmering Pisces for a few weeks the straight line to our objectives may not yet be apparent, so slowing down with Mercury retro to feel out our priorities will help. The big hot balloon of Jupiter in Sagittarius may want to carry us up and off to the skies, but let’s make sure it’s tethered for now, and not get this journey off to a hasty start. The work has already begun, and we can trust in this for now.

.

At 5:32 am EDT The Sun in its final degrees of Scorpio made an exact trine aspect with Chiron in Pisces. The deep soul work and healing of Scorpio season has been affirmed, and is integrated this week. The Sun is due for an auspicious conjunction with Jupiter on Monday, heralding in Sagittarius season with bold emphasis. We arrive next week having cleansed and cleared our shadow, ready for a new adventure.

.

If we have been honest about what we have found looking inward, we will meet the outer world and the unfolding opportunities with clarity and resolve.
