Friday night we finish up the Gemini Moon with a square to Neptune and quincunx to Jupiter. An airy mood with options and an affinity for shenanigans… finds them. There’s an opportunity to shape the narrative through connection to the ideal, but there’s no will to settle down, at least not easily.
Saturday the Moon moves to Moon-ruled Cancer. It conjoins Mercury, now direct but still in its retrograde shadow. As the night wears on, the Moon moves into square with Chiron then Mars and into sextile with Uranus, all exact overnight. The details are jangling, but the way forward is to take them on. Start where you are and clear space for something new.
If you can’t go forward, back up. If you can’t back up, go forward. Juggle and jimmy your way into a fresh perspective and satisfaction arrives with it. If you wind up more stuck, get out and walk.
Sunday morning the Moon comes off the square to Mars and heads into trine with Neptune and opposition to Jupiter. We’ve faced the reordering of perspective from all sides; now the mood draws down inspiration and insight from the outside and from the divine. We can shape our home base, our port in the storm by embracing what settles our own private waters.
It’s personal. It’s inescapable; and everyone’s doing it. With Mercury squaring both Mars and Chiron, smart action is rough but productive. Challenge brings mastery quickly. It’s definitely a “measure twice, cut once” weekend, but when you’re done, you’re done. There may be frustration involved, but there’s also the ability to make the pieces fit.
It doesn’t take long to get the picture if you’re going to get it. If at first you don’t succeed, try something else and come back to it. Understanding has a way of trickling down through the cracks when you’re doing something else, maybe even something amusing, something titilating. Listen to your senses, but let them flow and move. They’ll come back with something pithy.
Venus in Gemini moves along in sextile with Mars, back into square with Neptune. The perfect option may not be available right now, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be. Keep your options open and keep an eye out. Don’t settle now, but don’t refuse something yummy because it’s not perfect. It’s still yummy.
The new moon takes place Monday afternoon. This weekend may feel like a bit of a lull emotionally, but it hums with activity just beyond the light. We’re integrating some of the bits and bobs we’ve collected without knowing exactly what we’ve stashed away as a whole. Metaphorically lay them out and see what you’ve got. Move them around… turn them over, sniff them, feel them, whack them on a hard surface. How do they make you feel?
What’s on your mind and in your heart? Those unintegrated bits are the making of something. The new moon on Monday can help us bring those fragments together, but take a look now. How do they feel? What does that make you want to do?
