“Show me the bright side and I’ll look till my eyes catch fire.”
Monday the Moon in Libra fills in the final corner on a cardinal grand square. That doesn’t make for an easy day, but for sure it could be worse. I always look for these bright corners of “it could be worse” because it really can give you some perspective. I fall off the curb in front of a car full of young men and women? Well, hey, my skirt didn’t flip up over my head and my handbag didn’t spill into the sewer drain. I call that a WIN. Perspective.
The Moon caught up in a cardinal square can make for tense times, for irritation. With Venus part of the square it can be difficulty in getting what you want or wanting what you get. However, Venus and the Moon are in mutual reception, each in the other’s sign. This makes for a degree of compatibility that wouldn’t arise with other planets in those positions. They may have different agendas, but they can work together for a cause.
We also have the fact that we’ve been dealing with cardinal square energy FOREVER (it seems like forever, anyway) and people are getting the hang of handling this coarse energy (or they’re in jail, the hospital, or tied up in someone’s basement “dungeon”). There’s challenge here, but challenge is something people rise to and what spurs real growth.
The Moon in Libra balances, seeks to balance, needs fairness and pleasantry. Venus in Cancer registers the appeal of emotion and femininity. A grand square has a good deal of solidity in structure. These two could go a long way in prettying up that tough Pluto Uranus aspect. This could be the day you fall off the curb and not only does your skirt stay down, but someone appealing offers you a hand up out of the gutter. But still watch out you don’t fall off the curb in the first place, if you can.
