All week, we have Mars in Cancer drawing closer into trine with Neptune in Pisces. It’s an influence that helps us all get into the flow and stay with that wave. The flow is that current of energy that takes you somewhere fast. Once you’re in it, you’re on track and connected.
There’s a feeling that you’re headed somewhere special, somewhere fated you need to be. It can feel like getting in tune with what the universe wants. In reality, the results don’t always feel ideal, but they often do. If you’re off your game, this is where you get a chance to get back on. This whole week is the time to look for on ramps to the flow. You may not even have to look if you’re not actively avoiding where you ought to be going.
I remember being outside the wake when water skiing. It’s bumpy and scary to cross the wake, but once you do, it’s smooth and easy. If you choose a path this week and you end up somewhere smooth, that’s the flow… even if there are some sketchy moments before you’re fully up and running. With Jupiter in Pisces, a little faith goes a long way here.
Also in effect all week, Venus creeps up on Mercury in Gemini, edging closer and closer until they conjoin late Friday night. Mercury slows in prep for its Saturday retrograde allowing Venus to catch up… as Venus squares Neptune (exact Thursday).
If your plans are falling apart or if you find yourself increasingly confused about what you want or even what’s going on, don’t worry about it. Just pay attention. Paying attention won’t make you less confused, but it can help in staying in the present. When something ridiculous happens you’ll be able to say: “I don’t know where it came from, but it certainly looked like a giraffe.” If you’re down for anything, it can actually be a hoot.
I think the worst thing you could do this week is be inflexible, with your actions, with your thinking – especially with how you choose to see things. Just let it be what it is. Description works better than judgement. For instance, instead of calling someone a horse’s ass, describe the traits and actions that make you think that. It makes no difference to the horse’s ass, but it makes YOU a richer character.
It also helps you get into the flow. If you’re flexible, any little clue, any push or pull can shift you into the exact place you need to be. When we act in this connected spirit, we can get somewhere magical. Maybe not quite yet, but we get in the wave that’s going there.
Monday the Scorpio Moon opposes Uranus and squares Saturn, a fixed t-square. Let’s start right off with a challenge to flexibility! So I guess we should be flexible about being flexible and be ready to respond out of the blue.
Tuesday the Moon goes on to trine Mars then trine Neptune, linking them in a grand trine in water. Relax and float. Is it possible to actively relax? Use your imagination and move your body; the mood is deep and naughty as the Moon heads into sextile with Pluto.
The Moon heads into Sagittarius by nighttime, squaring Jupiter. Time for something different, something bigger, something MORE. Venus’ square to Neptune under this effect can add some pining or dissatisfaction to the mood, but it’s short lived.
Wednesday morning, the Sadge Moon heads into opposition to the Gemini Sun, setting up the full moon eclipse. It’s closest aspect is that past-exact square to Jupiter. It’s likely that whatever bittersweet thoughts affected the prior night’s mood, those are involved with the current turn of events.
Something is culminating, ending or coming to a head; we feel it big time. Still, flexibility is the thing. Soon we’ll be looking back at all these details, reviewing and reordering our plans and our desires. Life is change. We don’t want to be boxed in to one thing and unable to grab something better when it comes down the pipe. If something skedaddles, don’t chase. Pay attention. Grab all the info you can.
The Moon goes on to sextile Saturn in Aquarius. Everything is a trial run for what comes next. It takes time for experiments to show results. Keep at it, and don’t lose heart. Optimism is smart and it lays a foundation for the future.
On Thursday, the Sadge Moon pops up the Venus-Mercury-Neptune square, a t-square. Being free is fun, exhilarating even. Don’t expect everything to make sense right now. Just stay flexible and listen without judgement. Everything makes sense in the end. This isn’t the end!
Nighttime brings the Moon into the early degrees of Capricorn and a sextile to Jupiter. It’s cozy and an opportunity knit some of those details into an early hypothesis. Making sense of things makes us feel better. Keep adding to your stash of data. It feels like security. Being optimistic about the future makes us feel more secure too!
Friday the Cap Moon squares Chiron and trines Uranus. Everything old is new again and we have to square that up with how we feel about who we are on the inside. And we can. Venus moves over Mercury in the night. Pleasure moves through the senses and we try to make sense of all those possible ways to scratch where it itches. Everything is always in flux, but in between this eclipse and the next, as Venus blends with Mercury – we see it… and it tickles.
The full moon eclipse takes place at 5 degrees Sagittarius. Where does it hit your chart? How are you feeling?
