Today the Moon newly resides in the optimistic, hopeful.liberating sign of Sagittarius. An emotional expansion into new territory may be exhilarating. The Moon conjuncts the South Node. It’s time to do the preparation and to follow through on what you promised – or let it go.
The Sadge Moon’s sextile to Saturn is an opportunity that’s triggered by you taking action. A disciplined, focused plan to create something solid and useful for future is the opportunity. You might have offered or presented something of value in the past. Now is the time to make it real, to get organized, do the work, or to share what you’ve learned. Solid improvements may be life-changing as growth and understanding increases.
Mars is newly and awkwardly placed in the sign of Libra. He’s a natural warrior, inclined to fight and to win.
But Mars will have to shift gears and do what doesn’t come naturally to him. He’ll need to “play nice” and to carefully calibrate his response to others to attract what he wants.
Mars is impatient for results. Most likely he already feels “behind schedule.” Now, in order to be effective, he’s challenged to be courteous, polite and accommodating. It’s time to channel his energy toward being a force for peace, justice, fairness, and something more balanced. balance.
Aries, and those with prominent Mars placements, will feel this shift most intensely. But everyone will have to be more accommodating in order to achieve what needs to be achieved.
On Tuesday the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. This is an ending, clarification, or turning point relating to your work, communication style, or your reputation for fixing, healing, clarifying and finding the best solution.
You might have taken a dream or something promising as far as it can go in it’s current direction. “Diminishing returns” might signal the need for a change in course.
Venus in Scorpio inconjuncts the North Node in Gemini this week. Aligning with your life purpose or your current “most promising area for growth” might involve uncovering the truth, exposing what’s hidden, or facing a reality you’re invested in denying.
You might need to trust your instincts more. The balance of power within a relationship might require a correction.
On Thursday the Sun in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. There’s lots of support for releasing old, outdated, increasingly meaningless routines and work methods. It’s time for something that changes your focus or the nature of your communication – possibly with co-workers. Keeping it interesting and challenging might be the goal. Personal growth could be enhanced. A deeper dive into the mysteries of healing and what “lies beneath the surface” might feel liberating or newly exciting.
Venus in Scorpio squares Saturn in Aquarius on Friday. This is a clash of two fixed, stubborn, inflexible energies that challenges relationships – possibly your relationship with yourself. Addressing feelings and providing emotional support is not easy for Aquarius. He’s most at home with detached, rational approaches and solutions.
But what’s required may be emotional understanding, warmth, and something that promotes a deeper, closer connection. It’s complicated for Aquarius – promoting a deeper connection while protecting individual freedom, independence, and detachment.
By the end of the week an awkward shift toward something more compassionate and forgiving impacts how the message is received or communicated. Compassion and forgiveness and some “give and take” could change the game in a positive direction.
Treating others the way you’d like to be treated might involve a shift in the ordering of your values and priorities. How you achieve a goal might be as important as achieving it. The process mattes.
