I’ve certainly taken a metaphorical step back and pondered some questions. I gave myself an evaluation report! I had to get honest about what was working and what wasn’t. Although this did feel a little uncomfortable as well as frustrating, I feel that the New Moon in Aries will help bring back bold and confident action.
Sun brings the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere as well as the beginning of the astrological New Year with the ingress of the Sun in Pisces.
After a month long sojourn in the murky depths of the ocean, the Sun will rise, jubilant in the fire and glory in its sign of exaltation. Signalling the beginning of the tropical zodiac, the Sun in Aries offers a fresh start if the promises or resolutions of the New Year flagged or failed.
I admit it, I’m not great friends with Saturn. To me he is like one of those people you might describe as, ‘you’ve got to know him to appreciate him.’ We all know someone like that. Be it their unique brand of humour, dry wit or that person who has no filter between brain and tongue. Perhaps they are that person who you can’t stand on first meeting, but over time, they grow on you.
I kind of knew it before I even woke up… it was going to be one of those days. My son tossed and turned through the night, wanting to swap sides or ‘take turns’ as he’d call out in his sleep and demanded I change sides with him as he stole my pillow. Us Mums will do whatever gets us back to sleep ASAP, even if our eyes aren’t fully open and we end up crammed to the edge of the bed- just don’t wake us up!
Cosmically, we are now being asked to embrace ‘consistent action.’ Mars in Taurus is a very committed placement. Before making an investment, careful consideration of time, energy and resources is evaluated. Once a decision is made, either yes or no, then good luck in changing the mind of a Mars in Taurus native!
In Aries, the sign of the self, Venus already has difficulty in expressing her true nature of unifying and connecting. While retrograde, connecting with the ‘self’ becomes intensified. You might come to the conclusion that something you’re investing a lot of personal energy into is no longer worth it.
Feeling unappreciated for you efforts in love or friendship may also be heightened over the next 40 days.
