Mars is in early Scorpio and Mercury is at the end of Libra squaring Pluto. I mean, you know you’re supposed to be nice, but that’s not the vibe. The vibe is “UGH. If I HAVE TO.” And that can result in a freak out. Probably not murder or anything, but keep that volatility in mind.
Mercury square Pluto in general can mean dark or jarring thoughts or news as well, volcanic news or sensations. Maybe don’t eat at Taco Bell tonight.
The end of sign Libra Sun actively squares Pluto as well, exact Saturday morning. An ego-fueled struggle for control can erupt with a battle of words with Mercury in the mix.
Friday night’s mood, tho, starts out in an ideal grand earth trine: Capricorn Moon, Virgo Venus, and retro Taurus Jupiter. Grounded, pleasurable, and internally mirthful, the effect on the mood is bliss within reason. Overnight, it mixes up in a t-square with the Pallas Athena – retro Chiron opposition, but even that reflects the ability to learn and grow from and through adversity. Stay thoughtful, patient.
Saturday night, Venus perfects its trine to retro Jupiter, and the Capricorn Moon highlights the retro Neptune-Pluto sextile. Want BIG things and dream powerfully. That’s a combo that always tastes sweet. It also compels satisfying action as Mars picks up an opposition to retro Jupiter.
The Cap Moon goes on to square the Sun and Mercury, both at the end of Libra, with Mercury making its move into Scorpio an hour later. A solid, targeted mood is challenged with limitations, obligations, and tepid excuses. Once Mercury moves to Scorpio to join Mars, the Moon moves to Aquarius; and it’s a whole new ball game. Thinking becomes strategic and the mood no longer minds the challenge. It’s exciting!
Sunday, Mercury in Scorpio trines retro Saturn in Neptune and we’ve got a rare shot at ferreting out what’s real and what’s not in this recent morass of shifting reality. In addition, it plays right into our hands, into our planning. We might get a chance to flow in the same channel as reality and make some solid decisions as we go. Pay attention, because it doesn’t last for long.
Sunday’s Aquarius Moon spends the day moving through a wide t-square with Mars and retro Jupiter. We’re in between eclipses. Now is the time to experiment with what you’ve started and to see how it’s unfolding. See how it’s doing, and what it might mean.
The mood allows enough distance to truly stand free of influence-shaping indoctrination. And that’s a good thing. Let it be what it is, and observe. Nothing works like seeing something play out in front of you and tweaking your own paradigm as you go.
Do you have any weekend plans? Is your new game strong yet?
