Early Monday, Mercury in Gemini sextiles Chiron in Aries. The Moon in Gemini, ruled by Mercury, trines Saturn and squares Neptune over the course of the day. Aries ruler Mars perfects a sextile to retro Saturn in the afternoon.
This influence melds the theoretical and the physical. The mood is ripe to facilitate this. What is real NOW? Where do we need to take our pain to ground it in practicality so as to make best use of our mental and physical efforts?
Mistakes and miscommunications of the past have another meaning when we employ them after UNDERSTANDING them. Now they’re called experience, recon, groundwork. And we get a chance to take first steps to dispel our own delusions.
The Sun in Cancer heads into square with Jupiter in Aries, exact Tuesday night. Pushed. Rushed. So many thoughts and details that all beg action. Where to start? Rank them. Lists can help. Venus sextiles Jupiter from Gemini. There’s an opportunity for more, we want more. Combine the two and we want to grab the goodies, but perhaps we should consider the speed in which we make decisions about them. Once Venus completes its sextile Tuesday night, desire may recede. Consider what you can afford.
Tuesday the Moon moves to Cancer. By nighttime, it squares Jupiter and conjoins the Sun – the new moon. It’s a fresh start in a new season. Desire is HIGH and the ability to attains one’s desires is excellent. But we feel the crush, the crowding of multiple desires.
Additionally, we have Mars moving into square with Pluto (exact Friday). Mars square Pluto is volcanic action. Powerful destruction for good or ill. It’s concrete change, cardinal, so we begin to tear down before we can build up. But in square, none of this is comfortable. There’s no subtlety, neither in the challenge nor in the application. It just IS.
So our new moon starting the season, getting things going… is a bit dank. But you know what? It is what it is. It also provides a lot of muscle to work with. You need to get something moving? This will get you unstuck. Wear protective equipment. It’s sharp, and that dangerous bit continues through the week. Act with conviction, and do the right thing. It makes a difference.
On Wednesday, the Cancer Moon squares Chiron and sextiles Uranus. The mood is ripe to face your challenges, embrace your wounds, and utilize the unique gifts you bring to the table – your values, your humanitarian heart. Trite but true: Love electrifies – nurture the way your differences can bring love to any situation.
Thursday, Venus-Jupiter brings peak desire. The Cancer Moon subsumes any negativity that might churn up as it trines Neptune in Pisces. The combo activates the merging of divine longing and worldly appreciation. Bigger, broader, deeper, but now with added perspective. Choosing feels more targeted than limited now as Mercury heads into trine with Saturn.
Friday, the Leo Moon trines Jupiter then sextiles Venus. Mars squares Pluto. Mercury closes in on trine to Saturn. Solid listening, nimble understanding, a heart full of love… serve to access the higher use of action now. The highest of highs and lowest of lows are possible. Continue to do the right thing. Motivation is everything.
