Weekly Astrological Overview April 25th – May 1 2011

27th – Sun in Taurus trine Pluto in cap, Venus square Pluto

30th – Mars conjunct Jupiter, conjunct moon in Aries

The warmth of the sun shines bright in earthy Taurus at the moment, and on the 27th trines (harmonises) with transformation planet Pluto, in the sign of Capricorn. Sun trine Pluto is the ultimate ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ aspect, indicating it’s appropriate to keep the faith regarding situations that seem short of hope or promise for the future; Sun/Pluto speaks of the creative potential of the unknown, especially when a door has to close on the past in order to move forward. Involving the signs of Taurus and Capricorn, this links to what we value most in our physical world, and the kind of security and structure we most resonate with.

At the same time, Venus, planet of love and harmony, squares (challenges) Pluto in Capricorn, from the sign of Aries. Venus/Pluto together indicate some kind of emotional transformation occurring within relationships, maybe via a bit of a bumpy ride, given it’s a square aspect, but there’s method to any madness that descends. Deep, simmering emotions are stirred in relationship dynamics, and the darker ones are the difficult ones to deal with, but this is precisely where the most valuable transformation arises.

On the 30th there’s the powerful punchy aspect of Mars conjunct Jupiter. These two planets sit next to each other in the sign of Aries, so it’s all systems go – motivation is through the roof; it’s a great day for getting going with plans or acting on ideas for expansion.

The downside is a tendency to over react to situations… it’s hard to keep things in perspective when mighty Jupiter and hot tempered Mars are in full flow. Add to this the influence of the emotional moon that joins the Mars/Jupiter party on this day and you have the positive certainty of follow through with action, but maybe with fueled by fight or flight at times.

All in all however, this is an uplifting and inspiring aspect that means there’s much more to get excited about than to worry about; it’s a turbo charged boost of energy just right for getting plans and projects off the ground.
