Hello, everyone.

This week it’s all about the Sun, and since in the astrology of business the Sun represents you, the owner, the leader, the center of the enterprise, this week is all about you in your role as leader.  The Sun makes major connections with three important planets, changes signs, and encounters the Full Moon.  Expect a busy and transformative week.


On Tuesday the Sun comes to the exact opposite point in the zodiac as Jupiter and Uranus.  Remember the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction last Saturday?  If you didn’t get the message then, you will on Tuesday.

Last week Jupiter and Uranus met and concocted something innovative and startling.  Now as the Sun opposes them we become aware of the solution to a challenge we regarded as an irreconcilable dilemma concerning our business future.  It may startle us to see how easily two (or more) conflicting matters can be integrated under this influence.

The inertia of the last couple of months may not vanish immediately; Jupiter and Uranus are still in retrograde motion.  But we will probably experience a growing sense that the future is becoming clearer and we won’t feel quite so uncertain about possibilities for growth and innovation.  Sounds good, right?


On Wednesday the Sun reaches the equinox point, the point in the year when the length of the day and night is exactly equal.  This is the beginning of the sign Libra and the moment of perfect balance which immediately gives way to excess in one direction or another. Depending on your location, either the days begin to overcome the night, or here in the North the nights begin to overcome the days.  We’ll explore the sign Libra more in the coming days as well as the goddess that rules Libra, Venus.


On Thursday the Moon is full in Aries bringing a project or idea to perfection.  The Full Moon indicates a time of exact balance between opposing forces.  The Sun represents our outer, conscious, future orientation and the Moon represents our historical, instinctive, and emotional perspective.  When these two are in balance at the Full Moon, there is a powerhouse of energy available.  This indicates a great time to present your team’s efforts and fully reveal their talents and skills.  With the Libra Sun and the Aries Moon you’ll be able to exhibit your best without seeming overblown or overdone.  So go for it!


On Saturday the Sun in Libra confronts Pluto in Capricorn.  Pluto resumed direct motion last week and matters such as banking, finance, insurance, and corporate business are again at the forefront of the news and our minds.  Everything we’ve suspected over the past nine months about the impact of these structures in our lives becomes apparent with this aspect.  And out of everything that has been revealed it’s time to decide what continues to have value and what needs to be let go.

This new understanding can be difficult because we may realize that certain business partners and associates no longer function in harmony with our goals and there may need to be a parting of the ways.  It may not be personal either; you may become aware of outmoded ways of doing business, defunct tools and equipment, or unnecessary routines.  Whatever has become obsolete will become clear and this aspect brings the focus and energy to change what you must.

The week promises a transformation in our perspective.  Let me know how it goes!
