This is an evolutionary and growth-heavy week with Mars freshly in retrograde and Pluto joining existing Mars, Saturn and Jupiter retrogrades. We have Venus squaring Pluto and in conjunction with Uranus, playing off the Uranus-Pluto square and creating confrontations in which we will have the choice to grow into something new, or to employ old defense mechanisms to stay on top and seemingly in control. While trying new things may be a simple idea enough, the trigger point of it this week (via the Uranus-Pluto square) makes this defensive move deeply unconscious, and attached to psychologically loaded patterns.
So whenever you feel on the defense this week, it’s not just you – you’re tapping into this dynamic astroscape. The defensive, but also courageous, aspect of life is engaged with this Aries astrology. This week prompts us to be a beginner at a new threshold, rather than a tired champion defending an old title. I’ve got ideas for you on how to recognize this situation as it comes up & meet it with the attitude of a liberated warrior.
