“Houses rise and fall, crumble, are extended,
Are removed, destroyed or in their place
Is an open field, a factory or a by pass
Old stone to new building, old timber to new fires,
Old fires to ashes and ashes to the earth.” TS Eliot
“When Matisse was asked whether he believed in God, his response was, ‘Yes when I am working.’ Marion Woodman

Saturn and Pluto made their exact conjunction Sunday and will be a strong influence throughout the week as both heavyweights will conjunct the Sun. These planets together signal change and transformational forces at work both in the world and in our personal lives.
Wherever this duo is transiting in your chart indicates the areas of life undergoing gradual change. For instance in the third house it would involve thinking patterns developed in the early childhood, in the tenth house life path and career, in the eleventh house, goals and aspirations and the community that supports them. The process of change is slow – over a number of years as Pluto, who always operates in the dark, undermines the structures of what has been to -over time- affect growth and renewal.
This week with the planets tightly in orb there may be restrictions or delays. It’s a good week to focus on work and tasks that need tending in a disciplined and responsible way while allowing creativity to be at the center.
Later in the week Venus and Mercury will both change signs and form an aspect to Uranus in Taurus. This will be a time for inventive and innovative thinking and when things can move things forward in a more dynamic, free spirited way.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”An unexpected thunderstorm.”
