The early part of this week is thoughtful – innovative, even, with a lovely Mercury-Uranus trine on Monday. Tuesday brings the solstice, that important point of balance between light and dark, and the arrival of the Sun into Capricorn.
However, the energies darken considerably later in the week, particularly during the third and final Saturn-Uranus square of the year on Friday. This is tumultuous energy, which on this occasion may well manifest as a battle between the old ways and the new. Expect efforts to change family traditions to be met with much hostility.
The situation brightens on Saturday, however, with the second Venus-Pluto conjunction in two weeks reminding us of the power of love and compassion. By the time Mercury sextiles Neptune on Sunday, we’re ready to forgive, forget and move on.
You’re very conscious of your status in the world this week, Aries, especially following the Sun’s move into your status zone at the solstice. This puts pressure on you to be seen to be keeping up appearances during the festive season – don’t try to do the impossible.
The final Saturn-Uranus square of the year pits your ideals and goals against your financial resources – in other words, you may feel intensely frustrated that you’re not rich enough to simply follow your dreams. The key is in recognizing that money isn’t the be-all and end-all. Find a way to follow your path that doesn’t rely on riches.
Healing will come later in the week as you understand the links between your own ambitions and your spiritual pathway – this is what the Mercury-Neptune sextile on Sunday is here to show you.
