Moon and Mercury take turns changing signs today 11-12-2016


Before daybreak the Aries Moon will make her last aspect before going void-of-course . . . her monthly conjunction with Uranus. It will be evening before she wanders into peaceful Taurus. A sweet trine to Venus newly arrived in earthy Capricorn will make the Taurus Moon even happier. Whatever agitation the Moon-Uranus conjunction creates should ease fairly fast and allow us to go about our Saturday activities with few interruptions. The Taurus Moon-Venus trine is perfect for a mellow evening at home, snacking on comfort foods and watching a favorite movie. 🌠☾♈🌠➱🌠☾♉🌠

Mercury finally arrives in blunt Sagittarius early this morning, a marked change from secretive Mercury in Scorpio. Mercury in Sagittarius tends to be on the unfiltered side and has no problem saying whatever comes to mind. Whether you feel this is refreshing or problematical probably depends on whether water/earth dominate your chart or fire/air. Fire in particular enjoys blunt speaking, believing it clears the air . . . my airy Libra side says a little tact never goes amiss. Water signs cringe though earth signs may shrug and take it in stride even if they may not like it.

The other aspect taking place today is a trine between the Scorpio Sun and Chiron in Pisces midday. If you have fences to mend with loved ones, this is a good time to get started on doing so. This combination is committed to healing and promoting a deeper understanding of why we felt vulnerable in the first place. Heartfelt hugs can do wonders now.
