It may seem that the approval of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice is on the line. The vote was supposed to happen today, and now it’s been postponed, to make room for a Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for 10 am Monday (that time is likely to change). At that hearing, both Kavanaugh and someone who has accused him of attempted rape when he was 17, Christine Blasey Ford.
Now that Mars is finally direct as of Monday, what have you been able to put in motion? Is there anything you actually feel more uncertain about or stymied by than you did last week? Hopefully you’re enjoying a sense of energy freeing up for use, though it’s possible that this week’s aspects are raising some new questions.
Today the Sun entered Virgo, the last sign of the season. We’re approaching a Full Moon in Pisces on Sunday, and Mars stations direct in Capricorn on Monday. If you’re feeling a little bit in flux, or like you’re not quite sure if you’re coming or going, or like your impulses keep switching, these combined events might describe that.
Although the astrology has been relatively quiet this first week following the eclipse season, I’ve definitely noticed a sense of things still feeling unsettled. Some of that may relate to Mercury and Mars still retrograde but nearing their respective direct stations. Some of it could be due to the fact that no matter how pivotal events like eclipses can be, we still have to figure out how to integrate them into the unbroken continuum of our daily lives — and of social contexts with much longer arcs.
