Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction occurs in your Solar House of career and because of that placement you may be experiencing confrontations with reality; you want to expand but your world appears to be contracting. I’m not suggesting a magic wand as a solution, but I am reminding you of the first rule of magic: whatever you focus your attention on becomes your reality.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
Just for now, try imagining that you don’t belong in just one place—you are a true global traveler and that might even include off-planet destinations, if only to pick up additional wisdom. Yes this sounds unrealistic, but if you pay close attention to what’s been unfolding since January, you’ll get a glimpse of the pattern and message of Saturn/Pluto in your Solar House of existential search.
Gemini May 21-June 21
One of the things that money provides is agency—when you have money you can move in the world more freely. Saturn/Pluto has been transiting your house of “other people’s” money—partners’ finances, whether personal or professional, and other joint value systems. As this transit continues applying pressure to shared life choices, stay on the field; the game isn’t over.
Cancer June 22-July 22
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction has been turning the screws in your Solar House of relationship for too long—and the transit isn’t over until next year. So take a deep breath and try to integrate the notion (if you haven’t already) that all of your relationships are in the midst of an overhaul. You can cling to old ways of relating and be continually disappointed or you can opt for a new paradigm—one you’re in the process of creating.
Leo July 23-August 22
The transit of Saturn and Pluto through your Solar House of health is an opportunity to see where you may have ossified into negative habits that are adversely affecting your health. Try to ferret out habits you persist in that might have a negative effect. Bad eating patterns? Repetitive stress aches? Be honest with yourself about what you’re doing and what needs to change and your strength and stamina will return.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Answering the call of Saturn/Pluto in your Solar House of creativity has been difficult. First, because Saturn doesn’t necessarily encourage free self-expression. Second, because Pluto only wants authenticity. When you combine those two impulses, tension mounts, as does the fear of making a mistake you can’t correct. Try not to judge yourself so harshly—creativity is never easy.
Libra September 23-October 22
With the Saturn/Pluto conjunction anchored in the deepest sector of your Solar Chart, you’re feeling tethered to your family history, ancient and modern. The problem with this tether is that you may not be interested in spending so much time in the past, but untying the knots that are holding you back requires processing the past and making peace with it.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
You’re right… sometimes it just feels like too much talking, especially as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction insists on depth and analysis. You’re not naturally talkative, but this conjunction is in your Solar House of communication. Resistance is futile, so dig deep and figure out what you want to say about certain subjects and be clear about your boundaries. Also try taking the time to just listen—to yourself but also to others.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction has been shining a bright light on financial matters and even though it feels like a barrage of obligations and transitions, it’s still an opportunity for you to create greater clarity about what matters to you—what you truly value—and what isn’t a top priority. Try not to go unconscious for this round; there are more valuable lessons to learn.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
The transit of the Moon is going to add a heightened emotional tone to the week and it probably won’t be easy tolerating the stress. But you can do it, especially if you take responsibility for your feelings, whether or not others do the same. You may not be able to agree with everyone about everything—go figure. But if you stay clear about what’s yours, the air won’t get as cloudy.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction has surfaced several psychological patterns in need of rehab. Not that you need to go into an addiction program, but it would be wise to consider just how many of your repetitive thoughts you’re mindlessly entertaining out of habit. Think about it—do you really need all those negative tapes? Or would you be fine if you turned them off?
Pisces February 19-March 20
It’s been a confusing time because on the one hand you’re beginning to feel a part of your community, however it is you define community, yet on the other hand, you’re still in need of quiet hibernation phases that allow you to digest and metabolize the increased social contact. There’s no conflict—it’s just a scheduling problem. Figure out what you need and then, as Picard says on Star Trek: The Next Generation, just make it so.
