After a brief Moon void from 8:14AM – 10:08AM ET (Eastern and Central time zones, see if you notice a twist in your morning commute), Moon moves into Cancer, focusing the energy of the day on meeting emotional security needs. Home sweet home, feeding your tummy and nourishing your soul, my country right or wrong, Mom and other goddesses. Moon in Cancer may inspire you to stay close to home over the weekend, too.
Meanwhile, Mercury (mind, communication) moves into pioneering Aries at 6:41AM ET, where it will foster clear, direct expression of the best ideas you ever heard. It has to be the best; otherwise no planet in Aries would bother doing it. When a planet changes signs, it takes a few days to get used to the shift, so be patient with your brain while it gets up to speed. The rest of the day progresses as follows: practical focus, demanding expression…that evolves into something more ideal by 12:11PM ET — ending with a surprise, a jolt, a flash of inspiration or other minor status quo disruption at 4:29PM ET.
A reminder again about a potentially pugnacious element in effect over the weekend, as Sun is opposed by aggressive Mars in perfectionist Virgo on Saturday at 3:10PM ET. Count to ten before you pick a fight and resist the urge to return any slings and arrows that may be lobbed your way. On Sunday, relations with women may be testy — or at the very least, serious — as controlling Saturn opposes loving Venus at 6:18AM ET. In the headlines, that’ll likely translate as birth (women/Venus) control (Saturn). Interested in the legal history of this debate (it goes back about 50 years, in the United States)? Here’s a link to an eye-opening op-ed http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/02/opinion/contraception-war-goes-on.html?hp I was fascinated to learn how much we owe to a small group of professors and students at Yale Law School.
