“Under a sky the color of pea soup
she is looking at her work growing away there
actively, thickly like grapevines or pole beans
as things grow in the real world, slowly enough.
If you tend them properly, if you mulch, if you water,
if you provide birds that eat insects a home and winter food,
if the sun shines and you pick off caterpillars,
if the praying mantis comes and the ladybugs and the bees,
then the plants flourish, but at their own internal clock.” Marge Piercy, The Seven of Pentacles
The Sun in Taurus moves up to a trine with Pluto in Capricorn making this is a very good week for creating and implementing pragmatic plans for your journey forward. Look to resources you don’t normally consider – inner or outer – that you may have developed as the result of previous endings or transformations in your life. Venus moves into the earth sign of Taurus this week as Mars moves into the sign of Cancer. This brings the quality of nurturing into the picture – as a gardener cares for her plants to help them thrive.
The Moon waxes full in Scorpio on Saturday as Venus aligns with Uranus. This can indicate abrupt endings or realizations that can bring sudden clarity to a situation. This is the aspect of love- at -first- sight. It’s wise to heighten awareness for experiences of synchronicity and where they might be leading you. If you have questions about the meaning of an event like this or if there is a mysterious dream you have had that would like to shed light on, a Tarot Card reading can often be a good tool for this landscape.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “A bridge being built across a high,narrow gorge.”
