All week long, Leo Venus heads back into square with retro Taurus Jupiter. We want more, whether or not that is actually what’s best for us or is fitting for our values. On Tuesday, Venus begins a month-long sextile to Libra Mars, one that will not come to fruition but will support us through opportunities to make something of ourselves and gain benefits in our relationships and ability to work with others.
Moreover, the Venus-Mars sextile is a chance to lever the odds to our favor. It’s not the chance to take advantage but the opening to create value and improve our standing. Get creative!
Monday’s Sun-ruled Leo Moon sextiles Mars then goes on to conjoins Venus and Juno, highlighting the square to retro Jupiter. Start out on the right foot by using this fiery mood to eschew competitive jealousies and strive for personally meaningful goals (rise above). Nighttime takes the Moon into trine with retro Chiron. Satisfaction comes with a job well re-done and mastered. You learn more if you do it right the second time (or third, or…).
On Tuesday, the Leo Moon finishes up with a square to retro Uranus and shines in balance on the point of a yod from Neptune sextile Pluto (both retro). The distance between where we are and where we long to be doesn’t have to be anxious drudgery. It’s ok to get excited and fired up. Dreams and fear balance in the mood when creative self-assertion takes its rightful place.
The Moon then moves to Mercury-ruled Virgo at the end of the night. Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, the Moon opposes retro Saturn in Pisces. A fiery mood gives way to one of contemplative rumination, under pressure to right wrongs or correct what’s led to our misgivings over issues of conscience. The Virgo Moon goes on to conjoin Mercury (nearing the end of its retro period). Take the time to genuinely reassess data on the reality around you.
On Thursday, the Virgo Moon trines retro Jupiter and retro Uranus as it heads into the new moon conjunction with the Sun. How are we future oriented with so much retrograde reorientation? If you’re going to seal the deal, you’ll need to make sure the deal is the best one possible. In this case, our path forward rests on an earthy foundation of facts – even if those facts are still in flux.
A new moon mood rests of the promise of what we will plan when we are ready, when we know, an open mind. If you can be satisfied and energized through uncertainty, you can manage (and learn!) anything. Be willing and able to change your mind.
Overnight, Juno perfects its square to retro Jupiter. Don’t let pride get in the way of improving your own situation, particularly in regard to a partner. For best results, take the high road. Take your passion on to your next project; don’t waste it.
Friday morning, the Virgo Moon opposes retro Neptune and trines retro Pluto. Again, we don’t know what we don’t know; but it doesn’t have to stand in our way. Even in fog, we tend to know what we don’t want or can’t use. Transform your mood by letting go of what is not necessary. Fear is not necessary. Hologram fear is particularly unnecessary. A mood for service can save us from the specter of self-undoing.
The Moon moves to Venus-ruled Libra in the afternoon and straight into and through conjunction with Pallas Athena… as Mercury stations direct in Virgo. The mood is airy, communicative, cool meets the edge of warmth, and cheery. Lift is achieved. Venus supports Libra Mars as the mood brightens and picks up an air of political shine. We want to make nice, it makes sense to make nice! It’s easy to feel where it could take us, what we have to gain. Be charming, be kind – be ready to gracefully nab that brass ring as we fly by.
Thursday night’s new moon takes place at 21 degrees Virgo. Where does it fall in your chart? A trine to Uranus suggests a pleasant surprise.
