The skies of the last few weeks have been challenging, to say the least – and it seems that this week we reach the peak of the difficulty. Many planets (almost all them!) oppose each other in the skies now, and this opposition creates lots of tension in our lives.
Astrological opposition means that two planets are actually taking position in exact opposition one to the other – from the two sides of Earth, as if creating an electrical line passing through the planet Earth, that is caught in the middle. This opposition can be seen every month in the full moon that rises exactly as the sun sets. But it can occur between any two planets or any planet and the moon/sun.
Looking at the skies as something that affects our lives, these oppositions are very crucial. They will show us two forces opposing or colliding, and that can create a lot of tension in our lives. But remembering that the planets actually offer us an opportunity to develop as well – we can realize that these difficulties are actually important lessons for us to learn. And by taking this special astrological time and actually going through the lessons – we can develop above our own automatic responses and above the astrological influences upon us.
The oppositions of this week are:
