Jupiter rules Sagittarius, so its planetary energy blesses us with its larger-than-life benefic force. In Libra, it’s all about justice, chatting knowledgeably on just about anything, being easy-going and charming, sweet and making awesome deals with others that sees a win-win all round. All nice, sweet stuff. Some might say a bit too much sugar in that coffee…
However, just like the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, this week is not going to be a casual stroll through the woods for this lackadaisical Jupiter in Libra…Just around the corner lurks a dark force, a hidden, ruthless, uncontrollable monster who bears the urge to coerce and manipulate things into a position of its own sinister design. Let’s look at Pluto in Capricorn as the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ dressed in a slick italian business suit. He is dark, cynical, unyielding in his compulsion to exert the influence of his obscenely well-connected power and authority to satiate his salacious desires for sweeties means that he is ready to pounce dangerously onto any opportunity for personal gain.
I’m not deliberately trying to be scary or dramatic here btw… I’m actually just as sorry to have to write this stuff as you may be to read it. But in this, I am genuinely warning readers of the dangerous dark forces that have the power to change the course of our lives this week. So watch it. Be mindful that these are possessive and pernicious energies.
Anyway, welcome to the vibe for next week. The two planets are about to square, and squares… well they aren’t usually pretty. Whether it’s in your personal, social or political spectrum, this combination of planetary energies brings out the fiercest, most intense desire to achieve a result ever. “Success at all costs” is the motto here, and one must not be surprised to come across instances where there is such an overwhelming mania for someone to have their way that they are liable to chew you up and spit you out after heartlessly stepping over your dead grandmother to get to you. And it makes zero difference how sweet and innocent you are. In fact the sweeter and more amiable you try to play it, the more delicious you become to the ferocious forces waiting to corrupt, overpower or destroy.
In this, we might struggle not to take any moral stance in the way that we choose to observe the ‘nature’ of what is occurring around us.
The good-natured, truth-seeking Sagittarius Sun’s involvement here, (by semi-square on Tuesday) has the opportunity to employ some exemplary skills in determining what is really going on in any current or past instances where an accumulation of power and influence has used and discarded people and collateral resources. On some level, some authority will be able to stand in the middle of this and attempt to diffuse any abusive or compulsive behaviour.
However, it is more than likely, given the Leo quarter-Moon’s involvement here (Monday) that insecure egos (as if there’s any other kind) and stubborn pride may turn to arrogance, greed and a need to be right (or righteous). Once those puffed-up egos become flared, the entire experience drops down to a lower frequency/chakra deal, and the drama begins.
It is possible then that we might see just how easily those in authority become tempted to get embroiled in the quest for power, prestige and notoriety here, especially since the socially awkward but still alluring Venus in Capricorn becomes conjunct with Pluto (Friday). In the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood, it is akin to the rescuing woodsman doing away with the corrupt wolf, only then to jump into bed with young ‘Little Red’ herself…
By the end of the week, Mercury trines Uranus (sudden newsflash), which in sesquisquare to the Sadge Sun exposing the whole damned thing, creating scandalous headlines and turning this whole twisted story into quite the tragedy of corruption, lust and immorality.
If this sort of thing is likely to occur in your neck of the woods, try and stay out of it.
Blessings, and have an amazing week x
