Depending on your time zone, the Moon enters Sagittarius sometime this afternoon or evening. When it does so, it immediately picks up the signal from Mercury and Venus, which are early in fellow fire sign Aries. This should ease the way for communicating with people you care about, even with seemingly ‘philosophical’ topics.
The Moon enters Scorpio this morning, commencing a round of harmonious aspects to the group of planets in Pisces. This will likely be an excellent time to pay attention to your intuition, or to explore more deeply into any emotional issue that’s been nagging at you. With so much water sign activity, though, be careful to keep in sight of land.
Today sees a rare triple conjunction of Mercury, Venus and Chiron in Pisces. This may be considered both a delightful moment for potentially powerful healing, and an early herald of Chiron’s move into Aries next month. That will be something of a new world for all of us, bringing fresh challenges and opportunities.
Sometimes when you’ve been humming along on your usual trajectory in life, acting according to your well-established personal philosophies and biases, it’s surprising to suddenly be confronted with a situation that calls for ‘beginner’s mind’. Or that surprise might come in the form of another person.
Mercury’s trine with Jupiter today (Pisces to Scorpio) bodes well for making plans for the future, conducting business activity, making purchases and sales, and seeing all the possibilities in a situation (including those just below the surface). With Venus nearby, the creation or appreciation of art may be where you’re drawn.
If you’re like most people, something only feels like a sacrifice if you don’t really want to do it, or if you don’t really value it, or if it truly takes more out of you than you have to give to it. Devotion often goes unacknowledged by the person exhibiting it, because they’re just doing what feels right.
With the Pisces Sun opposite a body called Orcus, which is in Virgo, today offers a reminder to keep your word to others. Everyone knows that life gets busy, and sometimes priorities, desires, preferences and goals change. But if you have made any promises or commitments that are coming due, you might want to review them and do your best to keep them.
Today’s aspects by the Moon would seem to be a reminder that love and compassion are not a zero-sum game. The best solution to any problem is one that takes into account everyone’s wellbeing; the best sort of creed is likewise inclusive. Wherever you have the opportunity today, do your best to make sure that no-one is left out in the cold.
Today’s first quarter Moon marks one week since the Aquarius New Moon and eclipse. (Does it feel like it’s been longer?) What projects are you starting to build some momentum with? Do they relate at all to any intentions you set last week? With the Moon in Gemini, notice whether you feel like you have to operate on two (or more) tracks at once.
