Aries Week: 15-21 July 2019
Aries, it has never been this difficult to hang onto success, your social rank, your status and your place within your chosen profession, business, field or industry. You are in a cycle not possible in over 240 years and you are required to summon up all the stamina and fortitude you can find, at the moment. This is really not your style. Capricorn people slog away and hang on. You tend to rush and push. You go up front, respond well to the need for heat and speed – and are not really made for the slow, grinding climb to the top, or the task of hanging on. Nevertheless, you have learned a lot, even in the last year or so, and now have some decisions to make. Try to make them well away from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday as the eclipse will have the whole town or city flying blind.
Towards the end of the week, though, you need to look at what you are working with, in terms of your career, unpaid work, university or college degree, and social position. You have been in such a demanding cycle in 2018 that you have been lacking the time and space to sit on your heels and take a good, long look at what is actually going on. This Saturn cycle tends to produce unavoidable, inevitable tests and trials. The biggest test is of your patience, because this gets easier as it goes on, and stops for good at Christmas 2020 – but until then you have to do the hard yards, as they say in Australian sport. Just knowing that 2021 begins a completely new era in your career, or with your unpaid work, or academia – should keep you going. You are over the heaviest part of the journey. Now, you have to keep going, knowing that there is an end point. In fact, from 2021 you will look back at 2008-2020 and shake your head at what you have achieved.
Pluto suggests that you need to become ‘the boss of you’ even though you may have quite another boss. Steely willpower, tremendous self-control and iron self-discipline are the tools you need. This is particularly true if you feel that your company, employer, industry (and so on) are dominating or overpowering. Push back. That’s another Australian sporting phrase. Push back, Aries, and run your own self and your own life. Do it your way, even if you temporarily have to deal with others trying to rule the world (and you). I might add that you have been here before, very likely, in a karmic episode from 2000-2001 when the South Node was last in Capricorn. Think about it.
Aries, the other patterns in your horoscope concern your house, family, homeland, hometown, apartment, household and related matters, like property investment, residency or patriotism. Again, I would urge caution near the eclipse on Tuesday. Why fly blind? You also have Mercury Retrograde here, so please don’t invest too much in the discussions, news or planning now. As you will see by August 15th it is very likely to alter shape, be held up or even come to nothing. A typical example would be a mortgage application that is scrapped in 2-3 weeks because you get a better offer. These things happen. Another example would be a family reunion that is affected by airline strikes.
Aries, the family or home front is best organised from the second half of August, when you will know what is going on at last, after a period when computers, telephones, cars, airlines, trains, buses, the mail – and above all the internet – simply did not deliver as usual. From that point, you can see your way to Christmas, or just after, when we have a Full Moon that will bring one of those epic decisions about the household, family, apartment or house that make 2020 so different for you.
