Confusing Day! Scorpio Moon says listen to your gut 1-5-2016

Addendum on NN in Scorpio for North Node Astrology blog

Best aspect today is the Scorpio Moon’s sextile to Jupiter at 23° Virgo this morning, marking the beginning of a void-of-course lasting until the middle of the night. Other than that, it’s a pot stirrer of a day! Mercury stations Rx square to Mars, Venus squares Neptune and the Sun conjoins powerful Pluto in Capricorn. Listen to what your intuition/gut has to say today because the strongest influence is Scorpio-Pluto. Take care and practice patience.

If you’re wondering why I say Scorpio-Pluto influence runs strongly today, it has to do with both the Moon and Mars being in Scorpio and Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, conjoining the Sun. The Venus-Neptune square is pure fluff and fairy dust, those who drift off course today will be nudged firmly back on track  on Friday when Venus conjoins Saturn. Obsessions, jealousy and expectations of a specific outcome are all potential pitfalls today . . . all of which can consume our lives if we let them. Internal neutrality and detachment can help. Be at peace.
