Weekend Love Forecast – Setting Up For The Full Moon

Em and ZachBoth Mercury in Scorpio and Mars in Aries are retrograde. Rethink, redo. It’s a good time to pore over what we’ve done and physically check in on parts of the plan we consider already in place, accomplished.

On a concrete level, walk around your home, inside and out, and make sure things actually ARE as you left them. You might be surprised. Better to be surprised on your schedule than down the road when something falls apart.

This is true metaphorically as well. Check in with people and go below the surface when you do. There’s no point in “hey how are you?” The real deal honors a few levels below the usual fist bump catchup. Don’t dig and be nosy, but do clarify your intention to go deep.

Be for real. On Saturday, Venus in practical Virgo trines Saturn exactly, but the influence extends through the weekend. When you talk to people (or yourself) INVEST. Spend enough time to really connect, but don’t dither and wear them out. Maybe you need to help someone re-do something.

Genuine care doesn’t take all day, unless it takes all day. This Venus has the sense enough to know when to go on and when to stop. INVEST.

You know what comes of a good investment (pay off), but this Venus knows that’s not the point. We invest to create good lives for all of us. Remember though: Perfect is the enemy of good. Good enough is good enough. Know when it’s enough. Don’t fret about it, just let it happen. And cut yourself and others some slack if it’s not as expected.

Mercury and the Sun cross paths in early Scorpio on Saturday, but the conjunction is in effect all weekend. Both planets in Scorpio resonate with Pluto in Capricorn with Jupiter moving closer into conjunction. We have to plan our days and weeks ahead with little ability to accurately foresee what is clearly a powerful roster of events on the horizon.

Here’s a suggestion: Set a path that makes sense now, with what you see as likely now. That’s life. If we need to replan and do a complete transformation, then we’ll do that when we get there. The human brain generally needs some sense of structure to its vision of the future in order to operate in the now. So whatever, so it all goes higgledy later. Plan for what you know now, even knowing it may be different.

To some extent it’s a game. Plan to play the game. Deal with later, later.

Friday night, the Aquarius Moon squares Mercury, sextiles Chiron, and squares Uranus. Eff off from the status quo and do what you want. Experiment a little and pay attention to the results, but don’t take any of it too seriously. Do it for the excitement that it brings. Bother to find out what really turns YOUR crank. Question why you do what you usually do… and chuck it in a ditch if that feels good. LAUGH! So they’re shocked. Do you feel good? GOOD.

Saturday night, the Aquarius Moon sextiles retro Mars and semi-sextiles Jupiter and Pluto. To quote someone, I’m not sure who – but someone says this: Eff around and find out. I think that’s supposed to be a threat, but act like it’s what you yell as you laugh and JUMP IN. You can do this from a rooftop or you can do it from a chair. You can do it while INVESTING, and you can do it while you turn and scratch your noggin over the path you’ve plotted.

Take cues from your mood to stand things on their head and feel them differently.

Sunday morning, the Moon finishes up in Aquarius for more of the same (no it’s not… it’s only more of the not-same). It heads into Pisces and a trine to retro Mercury and the Scorpio Sun. The chickens come home to roost… but the chickens are actually ducks and it’s all wet. Also it’s not ominous, it’s sweet. It’s bigger on the inside. And there’s a mood to contemplate that connects all the dots. Come on in, the water’s wine!

What are your weekend plans?

  1. I had to ‘leave the building’ (it’s a small house!) to clear my head of uglies. “Jump in the water’s wine.” That cracked me up that where I went. To the shore where a big big wind storm was stirring Wind Surfers over and up into the air. From the shore I could get a signal (can’t get one from the small building) and send a message … even an imperfect one to sorta say “I’m goofing with the plan, Stan”.
    It feels so serious, and it is. But, there’s the water’s wine and that’s not.
    I so need that higgle to my wiggle.

  2. “So whatever, so it all goes higgledy later. Plan for what you know now, even knowing it may be different.”

    This has always been a challenge for me. I want to know how it’s going to turn out before I make the investment of time, money, and effort. Since life gives us so many unknowns, it’s been difficult to invest. I need to make the investment, and in so doing, things will go differently than if I did nothing. As you said, even knowing will be different.

  3. What goes all higgledy in my father’s words was “hoogeda boogedah” and Scorpio time can definitely do that for some, but I think it’s going to be a good time.. I have a hella retrogrades in my natal plus a stellium, and I’m a sun Scorp. I have not been here for quite a while and it’s good to see you all. I feel like I just walked in from the autumn crisp air in Ohio (and I actually did) but to the Colorado and Arizona and Canada places that I know some of the regular posters are from… ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‘‹

  4. ‘Experiment a little and pay attention to the results, but donโ€™t take any of it too seriously. Do it for the excitement that it brings. Bother to find out what really turns YOUR crank. Question why you do what you usually doโ€ฆ and chuck it in a ditch if that feels good.’

    I don’t know. I was asked point blank what I want out of life. I am hung up on what I want to want and that I want to be the kind of person that wants this. But with my sun Neptune transit I am back to square nothing of my mars in the 12th Pluto transit. Believing I have no passions. Other than the passion to have a passion.
    Also, as someone who wants to be active in helping people, I notice I only want to help them with what I want to help them with. Easy things to get. I couldn’t even help my friend with rephrasing ‘I hope you are well’ (only came up with I trust). When people ask for favors I clam up. I only give them things when they don’t ask and it’s usually money I don’t have (Jupiter in the 2nd.) If giving of myself is the only thing that motivates me, I seem to resist it a lot. Also my fear of senescence also causes me to treat people badly. No one needs to shelter me.. but
