Venus is retrograde in Gemini and Mars conjoins Neptune in Pisces. We re-examine desire while we have the ability to change our approach. While Venus and Mars don’t square by orb, they square by sign – both mutable. Mercury is direct, but it will be retrograde soon; we’re already in its shadow.
Everything seems higgledy. Mercury in loose trine to Mars (and Neptune) leads us to lean into our planning, but ultimately results are elusive (or illusive).
What we want isn’t coming on its own and we can’t nail it down through effort either. The negotiations go swimmingly, but the hook doesn’t set. Or if it does, you reel in a shoe. It’s a nice shoe, but it’s still a shoe.
But here’s the catch – we will get there. This is one of those awkward times when we’re failing forward. Have some belief in yourself, some faith. It’s not even full on frustration with no outlet. It’s limp. Just keep swimming. You’re doing more than you know. You’re achieving more than is visible.
Keep pointing your boat where the flow goes. With Mercury in Moon-ruled Cancer, facts are tough to pinpoint. They change with the tides. The facts don’t change, but what we can access does. It’s all a lesson in mastering our approach and attitudes surrounding uncertainty. We’re not even set in what we WANT. Clarity is not coming along soon, but life will work better when you stop waiting on it. Get on with what intuition tells you to do in any given moment.
Friday night, the Pisces Moon trines Mercury and rolls over Mars and Neptune. It goes on to square the Sun. Have a little faith and fish where it feels good to throw your line. That’s the key right there. Who knows what it’s the key to, but it’s the key to something. Feel that hum of water and air between the eclipses. Something is taking shape. Soak up the poetry of the moment; whisper your feelings. Overnight, the Moon sextiles Pluto and Jupiter for some sexy, magical drive. It’s a libido pumper.
Saturday night, the Moon takes off in Mars-rule Aries. Mars Moon sextile Saturn (retro) is tactile pyrotechnics. The mood brings an opportunity to BITE. Action may be wavy, but the mood lands something worth keeping. All work pays off eventually, somehow. This mood steers us into something tasty.
Sunday morning, the Aries Moon conjoins Chiron. It goes on to sextile Venus and square Mercury. active feels good, feels healthy. It’s possible to grab onto something that satisfies and pleases. Know when to modify your expectations though: Don’t drive it into the ground by overplaying your hand.
What are your weekend plans?
