This year going with the flow brings success and fun:
Astrologers are very good at making dire predictions—but what use is that unless they can also tell you when is the BEST time to pursue new ventures? I’m just the astrologer to let you know that this year, from June of 2013 to June of 2014 is a great time to start a new business or any project you want to go really smoothly. And that’s because there is a very auspicious alignment of planets building up in the sky. I’m telling you about it because it’s approaching its peak and I want you to be able to take full advantage of it before it ends.
The alignment is a set of harmonious aspects among five planets: Saturn, Neptune, Chiron, Jupiter and Pluto. Each of these planets has at least two harmonious connections going on right now with others of the batch. This piles goodness upon goodness so that the summer and fall of 2013 is a very lucky and auspicious time for new enterprises of all kinds, and that goodness flows right into the spring of next year. Most of this harmonious activity is happening in Water signs, with Pluto in an Earth sign connecting nicely with those Water signs and adding some dynamic tension too.
What these planets are up to. . .
Neptune is in Pisces, a sign it loves to be in, bringing a tremendous sense of flow to this dynamic. Because Neptune is involved, we have access to oceanic feelings of communion and connection, and our imaginations are fueled. Our powers of manifestation and “dreaming things real” is at a peak.
Pluto is in Capricorn and Saturn is in Scorpio. This combination is called a “mutual reception,” as each planet is in the sign the other rules, making them “mutually receptive” to each other’s agendas. This alignment is all about power, purging corruption, doing the hard work of vulnerable leadership, and living each moment as if it was your last. I’ve written more about it here.
Chiron the Wounded Healer is in Pisces, bridging the gap between material and spiritual worlds, carrying information from the physical to the metaphysical planes and back again. You can take advantage of this through prayer, manifestation and other practices that get you into alignment with your spiritual guidance.
And finally, Jupiter will move into Cancer on June 25, 2013, and will quickly get into trine with Neptune, Saturn, then Chiron, completing the Water circuit. Jupiter will also oppose Pluto, and bring just enough tension into the dynamic to spur all that lazy Water to action. Jupiter in Cancer is in its all-time favorite sign to occupy, bringing a warm, nurturing feel and encouraging growth gently, as a summer rain encourages flowers to bud and open.
How does this affect me?
If you have a lot of Water in your chart, this astrological activity should feel really good, as if the rest of the world is aligning with the flow that is natural to you. You may find yourself experiencing luck and being noticed in ways that don’t make you feel overexposed. If you have lazy Water habits (such as living in codependent relationships, overpowering others with your emotions or draining yourself dry to serve and nurture others), these habits may be indulged this year and you could end up with no progress. But if you decide to live your Watery side in the best way possible (by being conscious of your feelings but not dramatic, and being intuitive without being invasive), you could find yourself at the top of the heap with very little effort.
And the really good news is that if you are starting a business this year, or having a baby, you can look forward to your “project” having oodles of good karma. Some kinds of businesses are better suited to this than others; you can see me for a consultation if you’re ready to know more.
This time period is especially good for:
- nurses and caretakers of all kinds
- midwives, doulas, ob/gyns and those involved with birthing
- hospice workers and those who to assist peaceful death
- any job that requires compassion and human kindness
- spiritual and psychic helpers
- anyone who works with children
- financial analysts and investors, anyone who works with debt but especially those who assist people in trouble with management of their debt, including bankruptcy lawyers
- therapists, counselors and coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts
- . . . and the list goes on.
