Nothing like an unhindered Aries Moon to get us up and going on a Monday! This time the only aspect she makes is an opposition to Jupiter in Libra this evening, so we unadulterated Aries Moon influence all day. The only catch is the Moon is now in her Balsamic Phase leading up to the New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday. This is the time in the lunar cycle for quiet reflection on the past lunar month rather than revving up to start something new. Since Aries is all about the latter, it may be more challenging to slow down enough for contemplation. Maybe it’s time to learn to do a moving meditation? The cardinal fire energy is strong today and consequently we’ll feel better in motion. 🌠☾♈🌠
A very constructive trine between Mercury Rx in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius is at work today. I love this one because it taps into the creative drive of the Mercury-Uranus conjunction in Aries and guides it into more productive channels. We’ll be able to draw on this aspect until the second week in May, and that’s great. Another plus involving Mercury in Aries is it’s in mutual reception with Mars in Gemini. This means these two will work together well and will help us focus through Mercury’s station direct. Be aware Mercury will begin to slow later this week, preparing to station direct on May 3.
