An easy flow of energy between Mars (action) and the Moon in Aquarius starts the day at 7:23AM ET. Whatever idealistic ideas you may have, they are driven by the Aquarius Moon’s need for innovation and/or eccentricity, suggesting the potential for tech-savvy genius or mad science. Go for it.
If you were born with Moon in Aquarius, you need to be socially significant — and dare I say appreciated for it. You probably need to be unusual, too. And free! “I love you, but don’t take it personally” is a pithy Aquarian expression — and I came up with that one all by myself. If you don’t know where your Moon is, for heaven’s sake, order an Astro-Basics Report — or book a consultation. This is a key clue in solving your own identity puzzle.
Harmonious patterns between the Moon and Saturn (at 1:10PM ET) and Venus (at 8:59PM ET) add a gracious, structured potential to this day. Wednesday begins with amplified innovative flash, as the Moon makes an easy connection to Uranus, which rules Aquarius. After that, we’ll be building to the First Quarter Moon, exact at 1:27AM ET on Thursday. That’s when we may see a challenge to your New Moon agenda.
Said challenge may be one of vision — or confusion, as Neptune turns direct on Wednesday at 11:32AM ET. This ends a five month period of subtle focus on your own dreams and intuition for guidance. When a planet is retrograde, the suggestion is to turn inward on issues involving that planet, as opposed to looking outside the self. So with Neptune turning direct, we can now apply whatever vision we nurtured to the outside world.
You’ll feel the effects of Neptune’s change of station more personally if you were born 6-8 days into Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius…or if you have a planet or angle at 6-8 degrees of those signs. What kind of effects? Oh…perhaps you are feeling somewhat bewildered…or less inclined to be in Type A personality mode (if you are normally a Type A personality). You may find yourself needing to express your creativity — even if you have never thought of yourself as a “creative” person. You may also find being of service richly rewarding. If you are having a Neptune transit, you are especially advised to consult an astrologer for perspective.
The news will be back later this week. I know, there’s so much to talk about. Charlie Sheen; amending the French Constitution; restaurant workers no longer working for tips; refusing to accept immigrants even as thousands are displaced from their own countries and so on. Planetary patterns reflect it all. Stay tuned.
