We need to be prepared for a somewhat wild ride this week. The eclipse may bring sudden changes and chaos and it is up to us how we respond to that. The atmosphere is highly charged and explosive. We may use this energy in two ways. We can choose to be in control of our feelings, focused on finding creative solutions to our problems and enthusiastic about new ideas, or we can adopt the path of anger, frustration, and impulsiveness. In the present astrological climate, there is room for courage, honesty, enthusiasm, and enjoyment. We do not have to choose a road of impatience, selfishness, and destruction. Even though we all may feel bullied by the outside forces, we can use this drive to empower ourselves and people we love. Collaborate with others and try to understand their issues. Do not force your agenda even if you want to very much. A lot of us may miss the camaraderie of our friends and the groups we belong to. Although this absence can mess with our moods, we need to find ways to keep our spirits high. I know that you may be sick of hearing this, but we are going through a threshold and the step leading to the entry is really high. We must help each other.
On Sunday afternoon, there will be the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. The Moon, at this time, will exactly oppose the Sun in a birthday chart of the USA. This chart will be heavily aspected by many other planets as well. This week, Venus in Gemini will make positive aspects with Mars and Chiron (both in Aries) as well as Juno in Libra. She will make difficult aspects with Jupiter, Pluto, and Pallas Athena (all conjunct in Capricorn). Mars will conjunct Chiron, oppose Juno and square the Nodes of the Moon.
