The full moon in Aquarius is exact on Monday, so a lot of the juice is cooking right now and through the weekend. The Moon transits Capricorn Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning and into early Aquarius on Sunday afternoon. The Cap mood is cardinal, ready to start something and with an inclination to persevere. Once in Aquarius, the airy Moon carries water for a more theoretical mood with an aptitude for experimentation.
Over the weekend, the Leo Sun trines Aries Chiron (exact Friday night) and squares Uranus, ruler of Aquarius (exact Sunday morning). Authenticity rules. Be who you are. This is a kind of honesty that relieves pain, but it also has consequences. It relieves pain, but the resulting growth can push against fixed resources and values resulting in a new kind of challenge.
It’s a good time to contemplate the times when pain is positive and avoiding pain holds you back.
This weekend, Venus moves in quincunx to Saturn as Mercury applies in opposition to Saturn. Mercury is in Cancer, ruled by the Moon; Venus is in Gemini, ruled by Mercury. Saturn is solid in its own sign but retrograde. We are presented with opposing views, attitudes, sensory information, and communications. Our values don’t quite fit the way they did or we might expect them to. Who is the authority, the elder, the consequence giver? It may be time to approach that from another viewpoint.
These are issues to consider intellectually and take to heart, decisions to inform our fixed values. They’re not so fixed as a collective right now.
What do you stand for? How does that make you feel? Can you feel that and let it change you or are you set on control rather than the wholistic mindset of impartial education? Do your values make sense, or do you have to compress them in order to make them fit?
Monday the Moon is full in sextile to Chiron and square to Uranus. It is full while Mercury closely opposes Saturn and Venus conjoins the north node, continuing in quincunx to Saturn. The questions are alive as the Moon brings culmination to a cycle birthed in conjunction to Saturn. Our collective values are of the highest importance.
Our limitations culminate in a relationship between the ego self and our connection to society at large. What do we bring as individuals… do we understand and exercise the value (worth and ideals) we represent? It’s hard to be NEW.
Mars moves into square with Jupiter over the weekend and is still applying (within minutes) at the full moon. Action is inflated but grounded. It’s elevated action, action for justice, and it’s got some hard edges that weigh heavy.
Personal relationships are a microcosm of this larger model. You’re likely to see the larger issues of society play out in the backdrop of your own home and yard. This is Leo season! Put on a play… even if you just squint and see it that way for a moment. Life is beautiful. Even the messy parts can be fun and beautiful. The lens is your heart. Shine it up and shine through.
What are your weekend plans?
