“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
Monday morning the Moon in its home sign of Cancer squares the Sun in Libra. While they don’t aspect the other cardinal square, Pluto to Uranus, that is a lot of cardinal energy challenge. One great way to utilize this energy is just to get started. Whether it feels perfect or not, just get going. Mars (action) is newly in Sagittarius and its ruler, Jupiter, trines the Sun. Use the cardinal energy for initiating and that mutable Mars can make much use of it.
Mars squares Neptune. The motives behind action can be hazy, obscured, both those of others and your own. On a day like this, with this kind of jovial Mars, it’s not such a bad idea to let your moral compass direct your actions. If you get a “feeling”, do it. Jump in or jump out, in whatever direction you are compelled.
Venus sextile Scorpio Mercury and trine Pluto makes great use of the Pluto Uranus square. An explosion takes place when gas is ignited, but that’s what makes a vehicle run. Venus to Mercury uses this energy to organize and refine (Saturn sits near Mercury) facts gathered over the long run of this stressful cardinal square. It’s a time of changing perspective and thoughtful values innovation. Neptune and Chiron figure in here as well. Much of this happens outside of conscious thought and pings off deeply held beliefs originating in childhood.
The best possible approach is to just keep an open mind and check yourself whenever you uncover a knee-jerk (deeply held) judgement. Fact check within yourself. Where did this come from? Is it objectively true?
