Waking up with a buzz of righteousness that requires proactive expression, perhaps — with the Moon in opinionated Sagittarius, and it’s New Moon energy to boot. Have an innovative thought with your morning coffee, won’t you?
Be aware that the Moon goes void of course at 11:48AM ET — not to enter the next sign, Capricorn, until 4:44PM ET on Wednesday. That’s long time to feel like you’re herding cats, treading water or encountering delays and twists in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Try to spend some time turning inward, especially since the Moon void begins on a potentially hypercritical and argumentative challenge from action-hero Mars in prissy Virgo. Unless you’re really up for a heated and righteous debate.
Last week was intensely supercharged; take advantage of this natural planetary rest period to let the dust settle. Not that the intensity has disappeared, mind you. On Wednesday AM we’ll have the annual conjunction of the Sun (life force) with stern Saturn in penetrating Scorpio. That can be super-heavy — but it also offers us an opportunity to get real. Here’s how this hook-up was reflected in the headlines last year — sixth paragraph, please.
Meanwhile, Venus (referring to women, money, aesthetics and social expression), entered Capricorn this morning at 3:43AM ET, demanding decorum and a pedigree in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows exactly how to use its connections to climb up a ladder (preferably corporate), and until March 5th, so could you.Why such a long stay in Capricorn? Because Venus will be turning retrograde in Capricorn on December 22nd, not to turn direct until January 31st. You can search the archives for thoughts on Venus retrograde — or wait for me to write a post about it as we get closer to December 22nd.
On the 14th and 15th, Venus will make contact with the Uranus-Pluto square (a.k.a. The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About, thus shaking things up in Venus-ruled arenas. At that time, you may find yourself mingling with all kinds of unconventional, yet credentialed types who instantly become your new best friend. These “sudden attractions” are typical under Venus-Uranus transits, when an open-minded, humanitarian, freedom-loving buzz permeates the air. Add Pluto’s intensity to the mix, and some of your social encounters may be quite cathartic.
Mind the void — remember — no impulse shopping sprees or signing of contracts. If you’re looking for ideas on what to do, here’s one possibility, especially with artistic expression so ripe for prominence in the cosmos over the next couple of days…enjoy!
