We’re embarking on a week of contrasting light and shade as we cruise towards the first major aspect of the week which comes on Tuesday. Consolidate the projects and wishes from last Friday’s Gemini New Moon in this period. The poet Walt Whitman said: “There was a child went forth every day, and the first object he look’d upon, that object he became, and that object became part of him for the day or a certain part of the day…” Well on my way to work on Friday I saw a duck and a drake, a symbol of the Gemini twins, balancing of the inner male and female. So if you haven’t got a feminine side, ye lads and ladettes, it might be the time to get one. Tuesday morning brings the drama of the Sun opposing Pluto. If you are a Drama Queen or King, just ask yourself – “Why?” There’s enough natural drama without creating the man-made variety. If you’re worried about someone, remember to send out healing instead of the poison worry-dart. Providing you get through Tuesday (is there a choice?) the evening promises a much more convivial atmosphere with a trine between Venus and Jupiter, which either provides a happy ending or a welcome distraction from the earlier trauma. If you’re hosting, that’ll be music and dancing, spit-roasted aubergine and sparkling mineral water all round. There’s work to do on Thursday afternoon and evening, for the Summer Solstice coincides with a trine between Mars and Pluto. It’s a constructive aspect, but not for the faint-hearted. If you doubt your ability to be constructive or supportive in a fraught situation, don’t forget there are various cosmic forces available to help if you just ask. Know that you have the strength and qualities within you for the task. Non-violent resistance in the style of Gandhi and Martin Luther King is the order of the day. And, don’t panic Mr. Mainwaring! That done, Saturday finds Uranus stationary, so someone is not budging, someone is standing up for their principles, even if it’s just your pet cat or dog.
