Horoscopes for the Week of Jan. 8th – 14th

Kasia Polkowska – Mosaic Artist

There is a massive controlled (or out of control) power surge available for your use. You can use it to fuel a re-invention of your life. The power of a Saturn/Pluto/Sun/Ceres/Mercury conjunction AND an eclipse AND Uranus’s turn into direct motion is hard to describe. In 476 C.E.the Roman Empire fell under a Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Leo.

So it should be possible for you to dismantle what doesn’t work anymore to make room for the kind of changes you want to make – especially if they’re significantly life-altering. The timing is right. It’s worth considering that because Saturn/Pluto transforms an existing social/cultural/world order, some substantial life changes will be mandatory and inevitable.

Ceres and the Lunar eclipse’s involvement in this weekends exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction bring change and possibly upheaval involving home, family, emotional security, and the familiar things we rely upon for support. Mothers, mothering issues, nurturing and cultivation methods undergo significant transformational change. We may struggle to regroup or to bring things under control on the domestic front. Or we may begin to dismantle and disrupt.

This could involve structural renovations to your home or structural renovation your emotional framework, nurturing style, relationships with your kids, your mother, family, etc.

Anything involving Pluto is intense and cuts to the bone. Anything involving a loss of control is a “five-alarm fire” for Saturn.

Uranus in Taurus’s turn into direct motion clarifies that your values have indeed changed. You might not want what you used to want. Old motivations may be undermined. The rules and the nature of the “game” you’re “playing” changes. A lifestyle that once made sense given your motivations, values, and priorities may no longer apply.

The Sun and Mercury’s involvement in the Saturn/Pluto conjunction highlights the extent to which you’re ego is attached to your ideas and beliefs. It’s good to consider whether you’re trying to hold on to a point of view or set of beliefs you’ve outgrown. It’s important ti identify what’s no longer relevant. The ground is shifting.

Mercury’s message is one of simplification, retreating from society or toughening up so you can navigate through the world a it is. Finding your calling and dedicating your life to it after taking stock of your life and coming home to the cleaner more honest, and authentic part of yourself, is an essential part of the massive shift in progress.
