This weekend the heavens are awash with energy, potential and possibility. To be honest, in its entirety it may all be a bit too much for us so we need to pick and choose wisely how we use these energies now. Extremes of exuberance and excitement are possible, alongside extremes of emotion and stress. We may find ourselves fired up and ready to take on the world or worn down and ready to give up the ghost. Either way, extremes rule and it is our task this weekend to manage them and find the middle way which enables us to make wise choices, undertake effective action and pursue a positive path forward.
The Moon’s entry into Aries at 21:30 GMT on 26th helps us with this process. Less impulsive than many Aries Moons, this time around she offers us her fire in a measured way. This is the fire of a well regulated oven which uses its heat to transform seemingly boring ingredients into a tasty dish for dinner, carefully applying just the right temperature to bring about the correct chemical reactions and cook everything to perfection. This fire is contained and honed to facilitate the most creative expression of our essential energy in the moment.
We can all call upon this fire this weekend. It is the cosmic fuel available to help us manage the powerful energies around us now. It will help us focus our intent, concentrate our will and make every action, every word, every breath, a force for good on this planet. Astrologically speaking we have been immersed in water for many weeks and we now find ourselves at a juncture where the earth and fire elements are entering the mix. So what do you get when you mix earth, water and fire? Pottery comes to mind: useful containers which can make life easier and more ordered; vases to display flowers; cups that hold refreshment; plates for that meal we just cooked.
These three elements join forces to order our world, to make it more beautiful, to express the creativity at the heart of the universe. Which is why there’s so much potential this weekend and we need to use it wisely! It’s no good fashioning a hundred cups if you only have a small kiln, or a tiny bowl if you need it to contain an array of fruit. What we create needs to fit our purpose and this weekend we must be clear about that purpose so we can really hone our energy and put it to the best possible use.
It may be that we want to create something physically, or a relationship we want to bless with our attention and authentic presence. Or perhaps there are plans we need to make or previous plans on which we need to follow through. Whatever it is, there’s energy aplenty out there for us to call upon and invest. But it’s down to us to invest it wisely and with awareness, ever conscious of the results we hope to achieve by doing so. Failure to do this could result in energy wasted on extremes that lead nowhere and emotions that merely muddy the waters.
So here’s to a positive weekend during which we can bring to bear the creative influence of the heavens on our everyday world, for the benefit of the greater good.
Have a great weekend everyone!
