hidden insights

At Hidden Insights, the week begins with the Sun making a powerful trine to Pluto on Monday, which promises to help us uncover what has been hidden. In general, this energy increases stamina and ambition. The desire to conquer will be palatable, allowing individuals to move beyond personal blockages. As a solar transit, this energy does not last long. Be certain to harness as much as you can before Tuesday.

Both Venus and Mars change signs this week, which promises to have a mellowing effect. As Venus moves into Taurus on Wednesday, she enters her ruling sign. This happy placement allows the world to show physical expressions of love and affection. Taurus rules the five senses, and the next several weeks will be coloured by the desire to indulge in anything pleasurable. Mars changes signs on the same day, moving into Cancer. In the cardinal water sign, Mars gets a chance to cool off. Expect most of the world to be less direct as drives turn inward. Right now it will be difficult to become excited about anything unless it is paired with an emotional trigger. At its worst, an increase in passive aggressive behaviours is likely.

Venus joins Uranus in a beautiful conjunction on Saturday. This brings unexpected romance, and surprising new friends. Current relationships, both platonic and romantic become unpredictable as well. As these two planets join forces in the sign of the bull, relationships that have been in a rut can get a jolt of excitement. Also, financial matters become erratic and unpredictable. It would be a good idea to be cautious of impulse purchases right now, especially with Mars in Cancer.

Astro Homework

This weekís homework assignment focus Saturdayís Full Moon in Scorpio. The Full Moon illuminates what is hidden, while Scorpio energy loves to uncover secrets. This makes for the perfect combination to unmask hidden truths.

Some years ago, I attended a ritual where the participants made masks. On the outside, we decorated the mask with images of what we present to the world. On the inside, we decorated the mask with what we wanted in our lives to become more public.

This weekend, give this exercise a try by the light of the Full Moon. You don’t even need to go out and purchase an elaborate mask. You can use a piece of paper with two holes and a string to wear over your face. For those of you with little ones, this a great family activity to help uncover hidden talents and truths.
