Thursday morning the Moon in Leo moves into sextile with Gemini Venus for the beginnings of a brushfire of desire. It’s the first spark of a whipped up day. Today the Moon brushes up against everything, and with the Moon in fire, that’s dramatic.
Neptune squares Venus as Saturn Squares the Moon. Pluto opposes Vesta across the Capricorn-Cancer, parental-outer/inner polarity, power and devotion. By the time the Moon reaches exact sextile with Venus, it also quincunxes Pluto, as Venus also quincunxes Pluto: a yod. I hate to use culturally biased slang, but there’s no better term for it: It’s a Mexican standoff. Everybody’s got a gun, everyone’s under threat. But everyone also has someone getting their back.
Vesta is your passion, your deepest devotion. It lies between Moon and Venus in agreement. What is your priority? How does it impact your needs and desires in general? Pay attention to your feelings and inclinations today, the stories and storylines that emerge. Today may not be the day to parse them, but it’s likely the day when new information begins to emerge and form the beginnings of a readable map for where you need to go, and how to get there. Pluto, Neptune, and Saturn focus stout energy on this little setup. Do your part and they stand behind you too. Figure out what you want, what you need, and how that serves your deepest devotion of soul.
By evening the Moon pulls away and moves into square with Venus-ruled, Taurus Mars. If the path to action seems clear and necessary, take it it. If not, use this time for emotional contemplation of actions to come. Uranus trines the Moon by evening as well. Uranus and Mars on the Moon can create a bit of emotional irritation, or it can be the impetus that leads to the ultimate implementation of the integration of your emotions and higher mind. There’s nothing you have to “do” here, per se; this can all be internal. However, if there IS something you need to do, that should be pretty clear. You will feel it. So don’t bother worrying about it.
“Even when I’m dead, I’ll swim through the Earth,
like a mermaid of the soil, just to be next to your bones.”

Desire, love, and devotion are pinioned by Pluto who is supported by Neptune and Saturn. And yet, desire, love, and devotion may truly hold the power.
