It’s a huge week in the cosmos. Mercury stationing direct is quickly followed by Jupiter’s entry into Taurus. This year-long transit will seek to increase our security as we move forward. However, the moment Jupiter enters its new sign, it’s immediately challenged. Throughout the entire week and into next week, we have a potent T-square in play as Mars entering Leo opposes Pluto in Aquarius and squares Jupiter, newly ingressed into Taurus. This is a volatile picture which I spoke more about in my May forecast on YouTube. In mundane settings, there could be an uptick in violence as frustration boils over. It’s time to pick our battles carefully, to confront our personal shadows instead of demonising others. Sometimes, the more we fight for control, the more everything spins out of control, especially if we’re acting from a place of fear. Get clear about what is important before taking action. Ask your guides for direction. Don’t let yourself get caught up in the drama. Imagine yourself sat by a clear, bubbling river winding its way down the mountain side. Breathe in fresh air. Be still and watch your thoughts as they pass. Used at its best, this T-square offers us the courage to take the risks required so that we can take advantage of new opportunities available to us when the moment strikes.
