Making Connections

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 4
January 21, 2018 - January 27, 2018

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the week of Aquarius.

After the heaviness of Capricorn, we are now in the Solar month of the water bearer, Aquarius.  Obviously, this is about sharing, distribution, networking and making CONNECTIONS!

Last week, in the final phase of Capricorn, we worked on financial goals and ambition.  Now, in the month of Aquarius, we are finding the recipients, our market if you will, of our projects.  Even if we don’t see the results on the physical plane, we need to understand that there are many forces at play, many of which are invisible to the limited eye.  So, we need to approach this without discouragement and KNOW that when we are in alignment with the archetypes, we will break through doubt, pessimism, despair and hopelessness to make our wholesome dreams and wishes come true.

This brings us back to CONNECTION.  A connection is, essentially, a relationship in which a person, place, thing, or idea is linked with something else.  It is the LINK between things.  It’s the bond, the glue, the wiring that is required to allow electrical current to flow from one device to the other.  We couldn’t charge our devices without connection!  Even wireless charging has a connection (again, invisible to the human eye).

As many of us know, we are currently in The Age of Aquarius, which is essentially the age of information.  We make CONNECTIONS from the information we gather, Google and gulp up.  Then, we advance our personal world, while authorities advance the world.

Now, for the Aquarius archetype, general, non-attached connections are the ideal form of linking things together.  As soon as Aquarius needs to get one-on-one and intimate, it B Lines to the next satellite (hopefully a cold, detached one).

The Aquarius archetype is at its best making connections with groups of people.  When asked to sit down and be very one-on-one, boredom, disinterest and bewilderment can ensue.  So, this month we shouldn’t expect one-on-one relationships to pickup or improve without any extra effort.  How funny that Valentine’s Day is always falling within the Solar Month of Aquarius!

Our connections are widespread during the month of Aquarius.  Depending where Aquarius and its ruling planet, Uranus, fall in your chart will determine which areas you need to really focus on this month.

One of the karmic corrections we really needs to learn during the month of Aquarius is that groups change with one mind at a time.  No matter how big or grand we become, it always come down to making the difference in one person's life.  Anything else, is, quite bluntly said, megalomaniac.  Which brings me to one caveat: the Aquarius ego is extremely big.  Don’t forget it is opposite Leo, so it will display similar characteristics in another expression.

What this means for us is that we need to be careful of seeking praise for being “different”.

Have a great first week in the month of Aquarius.

Scent of the Month: Cedarwood rules Aquarius, Patchouli rules Uranus. The Aquarius astro blend contains both these ingredients to overcome the negative influences of Aquarius and activate the positive qualities during the month.

This week breakdown (and notable transits):

  1. Sunday: We need to be victorious against our ego and its attempts to take away our power. Speak up when you need help or see that help is needed. Sun in 1st decan Aquarius.

  2. Monday: Impulsiveness! Opposition. Power Games. Hold your Horses and keep your inner self in control. Moon square Saturn.

  3. Tuesday: Hold your horses, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Healing will be accessed by breaking down whatever wants to repeat itself. Mars trine Chiron.

  4. Wednesday: Now is the time to get our ideas about others out of our head. If we can’t manage it now, it will only be more difficult later. Judgement is blinding us. Be open to an alternative. Mercury conjunct Pluto 2nd Decan Capricorn.

  5. Thursday: Be very careful to not fall into those same old illusions. If we want our projects to get to the next level, we need to see through illusion and choose from a place where everyone benefits. Jupiter sextile Pluto.

  6. Friday: We are taking our desires into new horizons. Don’t be surprised if your appetite changes or you want to try something new. New vessel always brings new contents. We are moving one from to a love that’s long! Venus 2nd Decan Aquarius quintile Uranus.

  7. Saturday: Can you withstand the rhythm of the endless? Today we are looking at where we are limited our freedom by wanting to have all options available. When we are juggling castles in the sky, we end up distracted and empty handed and thereby manifest what we wanted to avoid. Saturn square Jupiter.

In my weekly write-ups, I refrain from using “astrological jargon” because it really doesn't make sense to people who know nothing about archetypal astrology.  But I do indicate my science in the footer.  General transit forecasts tell us what is going on in the world and how people are acting in general.  Detailed and specific forecasts are of course read in relation to your birth chart.  Meanwhile, if you want a more detailed explanation of where these energies are manifesting specifically for you, book a dash astrology session with me.
