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.
Today’s Venus-Neptune conjunction is a reminder to keep idealistic expectations about the object of your affection in check. Yet it’s also an open invitation for soul-level connection with someone, or to make (or appreciate) some truly inspired art. Meanwhile, Mercury is making a conjunction to Nessus and a sextile to Saturn.
In The Art of Becoming annual readings, the minor planet Quaoar — newly in Capricorn — gets a lot of attention. Today it’s in a sextile to the Pisces Sun. Notice how your emotional sense of yourself reflects certain family patterns you were born into.
Still newly in Pisces, the Sun today forms a sextile to Pholus in Capricorn. In creative terms this could help immensely: a relatively small-seeming idea providing the seed from which a whole new project may sprout. On the flip side, as always, there is a danger with Pholus of things getting out of hand.
