With yesterday’s Aries Full Moon behind you, hopefully you’re noticing greater ease in your relationships. This evening, the Moon enters Taurus — offering a more grounded, deliberate undercurrent. Given that Venus (ruler of Taurus) and Mars are both warming up a square to Saturn in Sagittarius, the influence of the Taurus Moon could be helpful.
Venus and Mars are on their way to a conjunction in Virgo tomorrow: a merging not only of our inner ‘female’ and ‘male’ opposites, but of the mental and physical ways we experience and express that balance. Before Venus-Mars culminates, however, we have another conjunction: Mercury conjunct the asteroid Vesta in Libra.
Are you communicating fairly about your longstanding relationship needs? That is to say, what seems to be driving you more: the desire for harmony and understanding, or the need to feel emotionally validated regarding something with deep roots in the past? The two positions need not be mutually exclusive,
Today two major goddess asteroids meet in a square aspect: Vesta in Libra and Juno in Capricorn. Squares indicate a feeling of inner tension that asks to be resolved through action you must take. In this situation — coming as it does on the heels of the recent Sun-Vesta conjunction — the theme is clearly relationships.
With such astrological fireworks in the sky (see Eric’s Astrology Diary for the full run-down), you might be wondering how to harness all the energy — or even just how to hang onto the ride. Today, in the midst of it all, Mercury makes a T-square with the minor planet Chaos in Gemini and the centaur Ixion in Sagittarius.
