Yesterday was an air day but today there is a noticeable increase in humidity starting with the Cancer Moon. The Moon drifts home to Cancer long before dawn and squares the Libra planets, the Sun and Jupiter, before daybreak. Once she has those disruptive aspects behind her she quietly rides the waves all day. Evening finds her trine Neptune in Pisces, an aspect that sends us gently off to dream land. Yesterday we needed to keep our wits about us but today it is our intuition that will prove more useful. If you are meeting people for the first time, remember our first impression is often quite accurate. 🌠☾♋🌠
Venus sadly waves goodbye to Libra and sinks into Scorpio’s watery depths this morning, adding more water to the sky and bringing the elements into balance. It will take awhile for her to adjust to Scorpio who is not particularly social or lighthearted. However, Venus in Scorpio is loyal to the end to those she loves . . . one of the virtues of being a fixed sign. Venus will be in Scorpio until October 18. ♀♏
The final Mercury-Pluto trine occurs shortly after midnight, part of the process of Mercury in Virgo slowly but surely moving forward. If you need to make a case based on serious research, now is the time. Mercury is gradually picking up speed now and will reach Libra on Oct 7, moving out of its shadow phase.
Note: Timing is averaged for EDT to PDT.
