Saturn and Jupiter are the two most powerful and influential planets in the solar system, so much so that their fortunes influence our lives and over recent weeks, this has been a disadvantage. It was just in the early hours of last week that everything started to change, with Jupiter turning retrograde in your work sector, just as the pressure came off Saturn in your relationship sector. This saw both come out of compromised positions at the same time and while this was good news on the job and relationship fronts, every aspect of life flows more easily when these two planets are in a good place. Things flow even more smoothly when things completely turn around, which they do for both this week. Jupiter is surrounded by support, with positive and exciting implications across the income, work and career fronts, especially in the first three days of the week. At the same time, as Venus follows Mars into your communication sector on Wednesday, this will give Saturn and your relationships a massive boost.
While we have all been impacted by the fairly challenging conditions in June and July, it is fair to say that you have borne the brunt of it. Yet as you eventually look back on this period you will appreciate the gifts and over time realise that five challenging weeks was a small price to pay and was even value for money, considering what you will get in return. This year you not only had an exceptional amount of planets move through Cancer, far more than you would normally have to launch a new solar year, as each planet returned it was to find the North Node here, for the first time in 17 years. It was the North Node’s position here that created a total solar eclipse in Cancer last month, giving this new solar year a massive tailwind and the promise of major new beginnings and developments over the next 12 months. You even had Mars making his first visit to Cancer in two years and Juno, queen of commitment making her first visit in four years. The problem was that you had both Saturn and Pluto on the other side of the sky in Capricorn and in opposition and it was here that last month’s lunar eclipse fell. With Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion, they stood like roadblocks, which all the new growth coming through had to push through. Yet what this was, was the meeting of old resistance and while you don’t know it yet, now that you have broken through everything is now set to open up. In the meantime, this month we see the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars, collectively known as the ‘personal planets’ come together in the same area of your chart for the first time since 2017 and they will do it not once but twice. To begin with this congregation is taking place on the income front and with lucky Jupiter turning direct in your work sector on the 12th August the timing couldn’t be better. It is from the 18th August that the same planets will begin moving into your communication sector, which is when the rebuilding can begin, especially on the relationship front.
