Moon in Leo seemed oh-so-fitting for yesterday’s announcement of this year’s Oscar nominees, though the clash between retrograde Venus and Mars did suggest the potential for a few ruffled feathers. Apparently there were plenty of “surprises and snubs”. But of course, with Venus — referring to aesthetics and social expression — retrograde, we’d expect the Academy to fall in love with a a few oddball choices…and wonder in February, when Venus turns direct, what the heck they were thinking.
The Moon continues its regal promenade through drama queen Leo, making contact with inventive Uranus and mental Mercury in the wee hours ET; action hero Mars at the end of the business day. That bright idea you have? Run it up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes.
Saturday the Moon goes void at 3:51AM ET….not to enter Virgo until 8:23PM ET. Avoid the yard sales and the malls, as impulse purchases bought during voids rarely live up to expectations. Sleeping in is a wonderful activity to pursue during Moon voids. So is yoga and meditation…and here’s a nifty article on recent discoveries about the latter. Try it; you’ll like it.
Once the Moon does enter Virgo, a need for order and perfection likely kicks in, with the potential for an intense cleanse Sunday night.
Have a fabulous weekend!
