Last week’s cosmic energy tuần prompted us to pay more attention to observation than to action as the road shifted in front of us. We don’t always know what’s the right direction in life, so sometimes sitting back and learning can be the best course of action. Although, cosmologically speaking, next week also brings some changes, but it also gives us more opportunities to discover our innate navigational talents so that we can reach more with its own spiritual purpose. Basically, expect some big breakout.
Starting at the beginning of the week, we have a transit of Mars opposite Pluto. Mars, currently in the last sign of Cancer, represents how we express our motivations, ambitions, and anger. And Pluto, now in Capricorn, represents the transforming power at our core. Before Mars enters brave and passionate Leo on June 11, he will use his sharp claws to pry open anything buried deep within our souls. So Mars opposite Pluto challenges us to discover what lies dormant in our subconscious, just waiting to emerge.
Mars opposite Pluto challenges us to uncover what lies dormant in our subconscious, just waiting to emerge.
If you’re triggered, ask yourself why. It is possible that a current situation evokes a deeper feeling in your soul, which needs to be explored in the process. Do recent interactions with your boss remind you of a high school teacher who taught you? Whatever sensations or masses are coming your way, it’s a worthy exercise in introspection for what they really are, at their core.
This transit also helps lay the groundwork for the transformative power to come with a Gemini eclipse on June 10. The sun and moon are together in Gemini, tripping the north node, known as our soul’s destination for learning. This axis was only activated recently, with Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26 and a year before that, with the first solar eclipse on this axis on June 5, 2020. And since then, we’ve seen pivotal transformative shifts in strength. core in the United States and the world, with society’s awakening to Racist injustice is happening, a tumultuous election season, and a Riot in the Capitol, all set in the context of the loss and grief associated with living in the midst of a global pandemic.
With the transit of Mars opposite Pluto this week, we are continuing to learn how to collectively gather information about our core beliefs — even those with which we disagree. — at the same time being hospitable to one another in the process. The upcoming Gemini eclipse serves as a moment of our reset for the collective and offers an opportunity to reawaken what we know to be true: the resilience of the human spirit.
The influence of our Gemini north node will also inspire innovation and collaboration. Saturn retrograde in Aquarius also supports the north node in the trine while creating a harmonious sexual connection with Chiron in Aries. This Saturnian influence reminds us of our responsibility to grow and heal effectively.
Just as the Aquarian water bearer provides her village with resources, we are all required to use our unique skills for the benefit of all.
So work on allocating what was revealed within you at the beginning of the week, when Mars faces Pluto, to use your power to spark change. Saturn will also lead us next week, so stay tuned for the historic return of the Saturn Uranus square and how you can stay one step ahead in the game.
