A planetary wobble starts the work week. Mars, planet of action (and often aggression), leaves territorial Taurus at 10:50PM ET for six-week sojourn through chatterbox Gemini. The shift suggests that energy to consolidate and accumulate will be augmented by flexibility and a desire to diversify. Communication may become sharp and/or edgy.
Under pressure, Mars energy can be expressed as a clash of wills. When Mars in Taurus challenges Moon (feelings) at today 4:23PM ET, the result can be a stubborn, seething, silent stand-off. Once Mars moves into Gemini, challenging aspects to Mars may be experienced as a war of words.
Mars-Moon challenge notwithstanding, the last full day of Sun in information junkie Gemini features a balanced connection between the Sun and Moon in humanitarian Aquarius, suggesting you’ll be able to process whatever incisive, sobering news comes across your desk with emotional detachment this morning and early afternoon (you’ve been warned about the possibilities around 4:23PM ET).You’ll need that incisive, sobering mindset to see clearly through the rose-colored glasses offered by a charismatic would-be savior. Why do I say that? Because nebulous Neptune in Pisces pulls focus over the next three days, challenging Mars in Gemini (exact on Wednesday) and tempting us with delicious flights of fancy that can be productive for artists and healers; dangerous for others if you happen to be a fanatic driven to extremes.
And speaking of Wednesday, Moon will be void of course all day — in Pisces. Plan accordingly.
I’ve been meaning to write a few quick words on Greece, whose fiscal crisis is heating up once again. Both horoscopes I’ve seen for this country have planets that are being impacted by the Big T-Square Party among the heavies: Pluto, Uranus and Saturn. Intensity, upheaval, a rooting out of corruption leading to healing transformation — it continues to play out through the rest of this year.
