- Emotions may be stirred when we look back at the past
- Soul revision occurs
- A week to stop and take stock rather than push forward
The main focus of the week is all on the water signs so expect feelings to run deep and events to ebb and flow around them. The week begins with the Sun entering Pisces and Saturn turning retrograde in Scorpio both on the same day. Saturn retrograde is asking us to look back at the past at where we failed to bow to the power of transformation. Don’t forget – change is inevitable. We can resist it but in order for things to improve they must change. Sometimes this means that the old has quite literally got to be swept away and we could see this happening both externally and internally this week. Look back at the past and learn from it – but don’t continue to live in it.
On the 20th, the Sun meets Neptune in Pisces and makes an exact conjunction. We’re all being asked to look closely at how we’ve been misled or allowed ourselves to be misled, when it comes to leading authentic lives or believing what others tell us. Sometimes the person pulling the wool (or in this case the veils of illusion) over our eyes is ourselves. We may be confronted with facts that make us unable to keep the blinders on any longer.
A Grand Water Trine with the Moon in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Mars and Mercury conjunct in Pisces occurs on the 22nd. Saturn is now retrograde and Mercury will turn retrograde on the following day. Whatever it is you’re feeling impelled to do, it is better now to wait to act. Look at the lessons from the past and see what relevance they have in the present situation. Above all, look at what resulted from actions implemented on those occasions. Unless we learn from the past we are doomed to repeat it. Look for a new way forward – even if it takes a while now to emerge, emerge it surely will.
