There’s a bit of conflict brewing this weekend. The Sun and Moon square off between the eclipses. The Moon and Sun both change sign as they hold the square, fixed to mutable. The general spirit of change is palpable which makes the mood a bit volatile.
Aries Mars moves into square with Pluto. This creates friction as well. The Sun-Moon situation is a mood. The Mars-Pluto interplay has to do with action. There is a drive for power or agency that can result in some overplaying their hand. Don’t let anything or anyone push you into making a move you didn’t choose. And don’t forget that you have the option to walk away rather than push back. Don’t let anyone but you determine your moves.
In addition, Mercury in Aquarius makes its exact semi-sextile to Pluto. This is a great time to hone those plans rather than go ahead and pull the trigger. To further that gun analogy: Leave it in the holster with the safety on. They can see your gun, and that’s enough. Use your calm, disarming, peacemaking words instead.
So that sounds dire, right? It’s just an energy. Given that, lots of people favor shows and movies that feature highly frictional characters and plot lines. They stoke the inner fire and make people remember they’re alive. That is also the case here. Venus in Aries loves action and fire. Moon in Scorpio then Sadge enjoys some dark passion and racing heartbeats. It’s not boring; Aquarius Mercury keeps a cool head and a steady hand.
Friday night the Scorpio Moon squares the Aqua Sun and trines Chiron. Mercury sextiles Mars. A dark stranger comes into town out of nowhere and captures your attention in a flash. Only… it’s no stranger. Quick wordplay makes love zing.
Saturday the Sun moves to Pisces and the Moon hits Sagittarius. Things seem brighter but less clear. The mood rises and expands, but the tension doesn’t dissipate. The Moon moves into trine with Venus and square to Neptune. Let the friction take a magical tone. When things are lovely and perfect they don’t always “pop”. Friction makes them pop. Go ahead and… POP. It’s delicious.
Sunday morning, the Sadge Moon moves all the way into and through trine with Venus and on into trine with Mars as well. The square with Neptune is still in effect. Enjoy the upbeat fire. Is everything real and lasting? Perhaps, perhaps not. That’s not always the most important thing in the short term. It can also symbolize a saucy side trip in the middle of a larger trek. Why not enjoy it? Everything is in flux. Let the story emerge.
What are your weekend plans? For that matter, how did Valentine’s Day work out for you?
