Moon continues its gambol through Sagittarius, pushing boundaries and facilitating the expression of opinions, whether you want to hear them or not. Show some respect, so as to avoid unnecessary conflict. At 1:48PM ET the Moon will square the Pisces Sun. This is the 3rd Quarter Moon, suggesting another piece of puzzle you started work on at the New Moon may manifest. Will you be able to harvest what was sown back then?
Moon goes void on an easy aspect to Venus in Aries, suggesting a warm — but not fuzzy — social atmosphere for tonight’s Happy Hour. Moon enters proactive Capricorn at 2:40AM ET on Saturday, infusing the weekend with a get-down-to-business energy. Got chores? Have at ’em. Turn your creative vision into reality around 4:34PM ET, when Moon makes a communicative connection to Neptune.
At 5:14AM and 5:20AM ET, Moon makes its weekly clash with Uranus and Pluto, increasing the potential for sudden jolts, revelations, power plays and ‘news from underground”. Gravitas in said news and other communication is suggested by a sobering challenge between mental Mercury and ambitious Saturn, exact on Monday at 5:41AM ET, but in effect on Sunday for sure. Usually Mercury-Saturn suggests an opportunity to get real; however, with this pattern happening in Sagittarius and Pisces, what’s perceived as real is more likely to be based on faith or another collective belief system.
Is it really all just relative? That’s a good question, given Saturn in Sagittarius challenging Neptune in Pisces, and it’s one that will likely pull focus over the next several months. Here’s an interesting article on the subject: “Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts”. NYT columnist David Brooks has opinions on the cost of relativism in a column published earlier this week. In it, he writes, “People sometimes wonder why I’ve taken this column in a spiritual and moral direction of late.” They wonder, Mr. Brooks, because they have not looked at your horoscope (August 11, 1961 — time unknown — in Toronto), and observed how current planetary patterns suggest a strong need to be concerned with these matters at this time, along with a pressing need to expand upon these matters in thoughts and communication.
Meanwhile…Saturn turns retrograde on Sunday at 11:02AM ET. What does that suggest? Saturn is the planet of ambition and necessary controls/structure. When retrograde, this can put a damper — or a structural review — on some plans for expansion…at least until August 2nd, when Saturn will once again be direct. Those who are likely to feel it the most (adding to those I noted in yesterday) were born in the first few days of Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini and Virgo…or who have a planet or angle from 1-5 degrees of those signs…as well as 28-29 degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo or Scorpio. Whatever squeeze you’ve been feeling since the fall of 2014 will be back for a second adjustment for the next few months. The resolution of that squeeze will likely make itself known this fall.
No sleeping in on Monday, which brings us the seventh Uranus-Pluto square at 9:50PM ET. Should be day of revelations, like this fascinating headline: “Suddenly, it Seems Water is Everywhere in the Solar System” Just like that!
Have a wonderful weekend.
