Venus is in Taurus. Mars is now in Cancer. This is a change in pace from the previous positions. With Mercury in Taurus and conjunct the Sun, I’d say the aesthetic is contemplative and pleasure seeking, pleasure planning specifically. With Mars in Cancer and the Moon approaching fullness in Scorpio, the mood is muscular and potent, diabolical, deliciously so.
Mars in Cancer brings agency to emotion. One won’t just feel, ones feels tangibly. There is twang. With added Scorpio Moon, it’s either erotic or unbidden bliss, or sturm and drang. Luckily the balance of Taurus drags its heals with enough good-natured ballast that liquid fire is banked.
Cancer Mars shines when bringing family together, forging a home, creating cozy connection. Unlike Mars in Pisces, this Mars won’t take just anyone, not unless they can be bent into family shape. It does this over time, dissolves you into the mix.
Mars in Cancer can be tantrums, or it can be the force that aids in mastering emotional regulation. You choose. It’s great at getting started.
Mars moves in sextile to Venus in Taurus. Opportunities to go after what you want abound. With Venus conjunct Uranus, these are bound to be brand new goodies. They may be surprising or unlike anything you considered before. Open up to the possibilities of the untested treat. With Mars, you sample. With Cancer Mars, you’ll feel its worth.
You may find you want something that seems unusual, weird, or strange. But remember, things are only strange at first. Then they’re know quantities. Sometimes when you meet under an aspect like this, though, you can retain the novelty over time.
Late Friday, Mercury trines Pluto. Whatever takes over your mind and senses will be all encompassing and a powerful attractant. People are thirsty. Whether or not they explicitly tell you… they signal.
Friday night’s Scorpio Moon trines Juno and Neptune. Overnight it sextiles Saturn and Pluto. It’s easy to get whipped up over what we strongly need and are not getting. If you’re closer to satisfaction generally, naturally, this can be quite pleasant. If you’re feeling needy already, it pulls. This pull can activate any latent possessiveness, jealousies. If you remember that, you can use the knowledge to regulate your mood. La, how jolly!
The more you regulate your mood, the more satisfied you’ll feel.
Saturday, the Scorpio Moon opposes Mercury then goes on to oppose the Sun for the full moon. The waning sextile from Pluto is the closest aspect. We may still be feeling possessive about something we’d be more empowered to let go. It may be as simple as letting go of the feeling that blocks our empowerment. Not everything has to be literal.
If something’s “killing” you, you can let it go. Or you can take truly powerful action and transmute that powerful emotion into something that works in your favor. We can’t control the actions of others. Our feelings don’t move them to benefit us. That’s manipulation and it only causes disease in our relationships. Empower yourself by taking emotional control.
You can tantrum, or you can take steps to regulate.
Later Saturday night, the Moon moves to Sagittarius and the mood gets a humorous BUMP. We get a feeling of philosophical clarity, or we can spin out. I plan to feel hopeful and lucky if at all possible. The Moon opposes the midpoint of Venus and Mars. You can choose to feel huffy and cranky or seek pleasure. I like the latter.
Sunday morning, the Sadge Moon squares Neptune. I’d say lack of follow through. Sometimes you just need to waffle and eff off for a while. Why not. With Mars in sextile to Uranus, try new things!
With Juno heading onto the north node, we’re nearing a time to commit. So play while you can (not ominous… more in a fun tone).
The full moon in Scorpio takes place in the late degrees. What does it hit for you? What are your weekend plans?
On Taurus Mercury trine Pluto under a Scorpio full Moon:
“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
