Since 7:12AM ET on Tuesday, Moon has been in people-pleasing Libra, seeking fairness and balance in relationship. Did you know that the Fox News Channel launched on a day with the Sun in Libra? And that their slogan is “fair and balanced”? Coincidence or conspiracy?
Tuesday’s Moon cruised through the heavens without interference. Wednesday is another story, as the Moon makes its weekly clash with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square. Ruthless Pluto challenges the Moon at 5:09AM ET, followed by a jolt or flash of insight around 10:25AM ET, courtesy of Uranus. Then it settles down, and dare I say the mood likely lifts by 8:49PM ET, when the Moon is supported by optimistic Jupiter.
This is the last full day of the Sun and Venus in Libra. Both enter Scorpio tomorrow, at 7:57AM ET and 4:52PM ET, respectively. Scorpio demands substance; none of that airy-theory-rational stuff that Libra does so well. Scorpio is a deeply emotional sign, noted for its need for privacy, power and control. Scorpios “build all the way up to Heaven…and all the way down to Hell,” wrote astrologer Linda Goodman. Hopefully you can hang with one who builds a stairway to Heaven. A Scorpio heading for Hell will happily annihilate everyone and everything in its way. Really, they are so very interesting.
Venus in Scorpio needs depth and substance in social expression, along with passion, for better or for worse. As in revenge, served cold. It’s an honor thing with Scorpio. There is a certain code that must be followed. Anything less would be an insult. Show a Scorpio a bit of honor and you may have a loyal ally for life. And a fiercely passionate one, too.
I just paused to scan the headlines and noted that an Ohio couple married for 73 years just died — 28 hours apart. I looked at the accompanying photo of Helen and Joe Auer and thought, “I bet one of them is a Scorpio”. And in fact, Helen was born on November 7, 1919 — Scorpio! Joe was a Taurus (May 2, 1914) — another sign noted for tenacity, and that’s where Helen’s Moon is. His Moon is also in an immovable sign — Leo.
His horoscope has Pluto (transformation/death), the ruling planet of Scorpio, running wild and at the Aries Point….and it’s in a supercharged aspect to her Venus, also at the Aries Point. This suggests a potential for depth and passion — good to have if you plan to stay with someone for ever and ever. The Aries Point suggests a need for prominence — and isn’t it interesting that this couple’s ideal love story is making headlines now, with current planetary patterns (Sun conjunct Mercury conjunct Venus) suggesting a need for the ideal in relationships.
And now you know why it can be so helpful to understand how your horoscope lines up with the horoscope of your beloved…or a potential romantic partner….or your child….or your boss or employee.
