This month is a about careful balance. On one hand, we’re got the continued progression of Saturn on its path toward its January conjunction with Pluto. The climate grows harsh, even cruel, as Mars in Libra completes a square to Pluto before getting deep and dark when it joins the Sun and Mercury in its home sign of Scorpio.
But on the other hand, we’ve got the sunny joy of Sagittarius coming in, with Venus leading the way. We are reminded that, even in the depth of despair, there is so much to smile for. The Full Moon in Taurus on the 12th will help to amplify this effect and remind us to take time to care for and nurture ourselves and others.
And isn’t that, ultimately, what life is about? Finding joy in our sorrow, hope in our pain? Knowing deep down that for all its trials and tribulations, this is still, at its core, a beautiful life? Work to find that balance now while the support is there, and this skill will serve you in the months and years to come.
