The Sun and Saturn formed a conjunction in the wee hours of morning today, continuing this Scorpionic theme of taking stock of our own stuff– what we want, what we’re doing, what we know we should stop doing. Some people may find this stark honesty uncomfortable or heavy, but those who are willing to look at themselves will find strength as we head into the final week of the Sun in Scorpio.
Saturn conjoining the Sun suggests a sense of limitation, responsibility, or loss. Yeah, I know that doesn’t sound fun– but that doesn’t mean it’s bad, either. It just feels like reality cannot be avoided today, so we may as well get something accomplished. If you feel frustrated or depressed, try to look at what you have done so far. Sometimes Saturn may seem to stand in our way, but in truth, it’s the planet that pushes us to competence and success. Hard losses can propel us toward something more valuable– whether in professional or private life. Don’t run from the challenge.
The astrological atmosphere is about to make a huge shift as several planets move into fire sign Sagittarius this weekend, where Venus has been flirting and playing since this past Sunday. The New Moon on Saturday will mark the start of the festive holiday season. So don’t worry about the heaviness– we are heading out of the tunnel. Use this time to strengthen what needs to be worked out. That way you have your shit together when the good times start rolling!
