Friday night, the Leo Moon opposes Mercury in Aquarius. Mercury is in its last bit of forward motion for a while. It heads back retrograde through the sign starting Saturday, a trip that will take three weeks and extend beyond Aquarius season.
The Moon also quincunxes Pluto and Venus. So the mood? It draws in the aftershocks of the full Leo Moon and gives us a chance to integrate the difference between what we think and how we feel… about everything. All of it, but specifically this point in time where the drama has landed and stopped skidding.
On Saturday, the Moon heads into Mercury-ruled Virgo immediately before Mercury turns retrograde. Midday, the Virgo Moon is the point of a yod formed with the Chiron-Saturn sextile as the Moon also trines Uranus. Be genuine. Be who you think and feel yourself to be even if it’s momentarily clunky. It’s not only what is real; it’s also what makes sense for our future self. If you’re going to time travel, take YOU with you.
Saturday evening the Moon also trines Mars. Mars in Taurus knows where to find the most delicious and pleasurable path. Take note and take action to extract all the goodies you can.
On Sunday the Virgo Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces. Given the new retro of Mercury, we’re likely to be distracted. And if we’re not, the people we deal with may be. Missed moments can be irritating, even if it’s just the wobble of timing. A Virgo mood can be exacting or understanding. A bit of perspective and appreciation for smooth connection goes a long way. When properly executed, it feels sweet. It’s validating to let things go and work together.
The Virgo Moon then heads into trine with Pluto and Venus (Venus exact overnight), a deeply satisfying, even empowering influence. Also exact overnight into Monday is the Sun’s square to Mars. While the mood is strong and grounding, it is still subject to retro Mercury glitches. The order of the day lends itself to hitches in the action as well. Allow time for the day’s challenges, and frustration will be halved.
