There are some shifts this week that I want to expand upon. One is the apex of the T Square, which is Saturn, will be going direct this week. Also Mars will pass Saturn over the next few weeks also. In real terms that means the things that have been impeding you will
have lots of energy and reason to make changes to things that are not
working. To add another layer of timing, this week will be more about getting the plans and ground work done. The week after will be seeing the consequences and figure how to adjust for things that are unintended.
The sign involved here, and crucial in this transformation, is Scorpio. So things that relate to how you interact with energies around you as well as your philosophy will make a shift if they are not in harmony with the flow of the future. So clean up, let go, and anything that drains your energy has to be reckoned with. Seriously, you have a couple of weeks of real opportunity to do this, so please even if it is something seemingly minor, get it done! If you don’t, by the time Mars makes its way to Pluto, which is around October 11th to 26th, you will have a cosmic two by four on your head. I prefer to take care of things before it becomes a crisis. Especially when it comes to attitude adjustments and outlooks.

Also there is a partial eclipse this week. Generally, a signal of a shift in consciousness or events. This is more a heads up of events to happen in early September when the real deal happens. Take note of what is shaping up with changes in your life and make wise choices. No time to play loose with the facts or realities. Important outcomes hinge on your decisions for September. Hopefully, with so much that is well aspected, getting good news about our heart’s desire will be worth the effort.
Remember last weeks’ notes on Jupiter going into Virgo. Details and plans will take a shift into something very productive. The negative side of this is people who are to entrenched into the past or no longer useful expectations will find illness creeping into their lives. So if you find yourself getting run down or sick, take a different perspective before you are completely out of commission.
Clement of Alexandria was a convert to Christianity, he was an educated man who was familiar with classical Greek philosophy and literature. As his three major works demonstrate, Clement was influenced by Hellenistic philosophy to a greater extent than any other Christian thinker of his time, and in particular by Plato and the Stoics. His secret works, which exist only in fragments, suggest that he was also familiar with pre-Christian Jewish esotericism and Gnosticism. In one of his works he argued that Greek philosophy had its origin among non-Greeks, claiming that both Plato and Pythagoras were taught by Egyptian scholars.Among his pupils were Origen and Alexander of Jerusalem.
