Hello everyone.

Good news – this week the planetary influences are supportive and benign.  Nature has been so nurturing lately:  each really intense week has been followed by a quiet one, giving time to regain our footing and assimilate what we learned.

The second contact of the Saturn/Pluto square occurred yesterday, on Sunday, January 31, and this square was so powerful that its effects will linger.  But this week we’ll have the assistance we need to resolve difficult situations. (For more insight on the Saturn/Pluto square, see the category to the right.)

Saturday, February 6

There are only two major planetary influences this week and they both occur on Saturday.  Look for their energy to start to build on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Mercury in Capricorn will form a sextile aspect to Uranus in Pisces.  The sextile aspect is very supportive and often brings someone into our lives with good news or a new insight that makes a difference.  With Mercury in Capricorn we’re still in a planning and strategy phase and with the sextile to Uranus concrete breakthroughs will come from collaborative work, committees, and teams.

Later in the day Jupiter in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.  Last week’s Saturn/Pluto square may have exposed an extremely challenging difficulty or a startling power struggle, and this week Jupiter will blunt the sharp edges.  Jupiter represents insight and wisdom; when in Pisces people are inclined to rally around a shared intention that benefits everyone.  Connection is the key; connect as broadly as you can and you will recognize the best way to move forward.

Have a wonderful week, and let me know how it goes!
