Mars in Virgo is opposing Neptune in Pisces. With my sister moving here soon, there are a lot of things I could and should be doing. This is a small house and it will take an effort (Mars) to make space for her.
I notice, that while I am getting things done, I am not getting them done efficiently for a number of reasons. I am avoiding (Neptune) cleaning and organizing (Virgo), when I really ought to be working like a machine, with all there is to do.
However, she is calling me 10-20 times a day, and it’s draining. So I realize I have to rest. I have to process her energy, basically. I look for balance.
The Moon in Taurus is opposing Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio today. She’s got a Scorpio Mars, so you can imagine how harsh her communication would be at this time. It’s 6 am and the third time she called me, I heard myself say, “I am trying to relax”. Taurus! And this is hard to do when someone is talking to you about blood spurting around which you have Libra and are on your first cup of coffee.
I am also working on my Venus Saturn workshop. I am super-motivated to get it all right. I literally feel called (Neptune) to write (Mars in Virgo) on this difficult topic. But with Mercury conjunct Saturn in Scorpio, words can easily be harsh or even cruel.
My job then is to write with integrity, allowing my words to make an impact without harming anyone. I don’t think this is the easiest thing to do, but it doesn’t matter, because it’s the job I’ve chosen.
Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow. This will like stall things some, but we all just have to plod on. It may help to keep in mind that things of value are usually hard-won.
