Sun square Saturn
Sun square Saturn is exact on Wednesday at 7:58 PM PT. The Sun is the self, the solar principle, and our creative expression. Saturn is the Senex, bringer of death, separation, and taxes. A square is a hard aspect that pits the two energies against each other. Sun square Saturn lowers our vitality or blocks it altogether. However, sometimes things need pruning, and focus, so Sun square Saturn is not all bad. Sun square Saturn is a time of reckoning, when we need to look at cold, hard facts, and take responsibility for our actions. The best use of this energy is to buckle down and work hard.
The week begins with a Venus/Saturn trine on Tuesday at 5:50 PM, considerably less uncomfortable, yet sober in the realms of love and art. Venus trine Saturn is great for commitment and for practical discussion of what you want out of your relationship. Venus sextiles Jupiter on Friday at 12:44 PM making for a day of warm feelings, and possible excess. The Moon is Void in Gemini Wednesday from 11:35 AM until 3:12 PM when it enters its home sign of Cancer. Void Moon in Gemini is great for catching up on social media. No other significant Void Moon’s this week. Saturday brings a dynamic Mercury/Mars conjunction at 12:01 PM, beware of arguing for fun.

And to close my favorite Saturn consciousness poem by Emily Dickinson:
Pain—has an Element of Blank—
It cannot recollect
When it begun—or if there were
A time when it was not—
It has no Future—but itself—
Its Infinite contain
Its Past—enlightened to perceive
New Periods—of Pain.
