The challenges the Libra Moon faces today are ones she (and us) are all too familiar with. Pluto in Capricorn comes by before dawn to square the Moon and late tonight Uranus in Aries opposes her. Earlier in the evening she receives support from Saturn in Sagittarius, a quiet but effective signal it’s time to get ready for the work week ahead. Any squabbles brought about by Pluto’s demand to have the last word should fade by midday. This gives us a chance to go about our usual Sunday routines in relative harmony. After yesterday’s social whirl, today we’ll probably be more inclined to stay at home today. 🌠☽♎🌠
Big news today is Mars leaving airy Gemini for Cancer. Mars is in his Fall in Cancer. If we consider the fact Mars is happiest in fiery, forthright Aries, it is understandable he finds Cancer’s tendency to fall into passive-aggressive ways when threatened uncomfortable. Because Mars in Cancer is so responsive to other people’s feelings it makes it hard for him to stand up and fight back effectively. A plus of having Mars in Cancer is by adding more water to the sky, we move closer to a better elemental balance.
There is a subtle but frustrating aspect at work in the background today: Mercury in Taurus inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius at 25°. Mercury in fixed Taurus will probably dig it’s heels in and refuse to go along with what Saturn in Sagittarius considers helpful suggestions but are more in the nature of righteous demands. Inconjuncts have a way of highlighting the weaknesses of the signs involved. Taurus can be very set in it’s ways and Sagittarius tends towards being quite judgmental. These standoffs often do not end well and we may be further ahead to choose to agree to disagree for now.
We can’t overlook the Gemini Sun squaring Neptune in Pisces today either. This one can spin tall tales based on only a fragment of the truth like nobody’s business. Get a second opinion before agreeing to anything with money involved too. The plain facts could be hard to come today.
