The energy today might feel over the top, but carries the potential for productive, balanced change. We will see the fifth and final exact opposition between Saturn and Uranus, a series that began with the first exact opposition on the US Election Day that brought Barack Obama to the White House. Saturn moves forward in Libra now as Uranus retrogrades in Aries, each at 0 degrees. This last face-off between Saturn and Uranus creates an opposition between old and new, tradition and innovation, but also balance and impulsivity, reponsibility and instant gratification. Keeping the lines of communication open could be key to creating a workable, sustainable revolution.
The Sun in Leo and Moon in Aquarius together can help us present ourselves and our gifts with passion, individuality and flair, helping us craft a compelling message that speaks to hearts of others.
