Choice Weekend

With the waning Moon now in Sagittarius until late Sunday, don’t be surprised if this weekend began early on the inside. For public and political events, however, the tone could be decidedly different. The Sun is now on a home stretch of sorts while traversing the final degrees of Aries. Many of the planets are moving in a similarly conclusive context.


Tomorrow, Venus will end nearly six weeks of retrograde conjunct Chiron in very late Pisces. Meanwhile, Mars is moving through the tail end of Taurus. Saturn, in spite of its own recent retrograde station, is still occupying the same latter degree of Sagittarius it entered when the Venus retrograde began.

Then, there are Uranus and the lunar nodes. Uranus initiated its current tour of Aries more than six years ago. It would be something of an understatement to characterize events since then as consistent with what astrologer Robert Hand called a “crazy planet” (in a 2014 interview with The Mountain Astrologer).

If anything has been proven over the past 12 months or so (while Uranus was in a highly functional conjunction with Eris), it was that Mr. Hand does not exaggerate.

Even as Uranus is now separating from its last exact conjunction with Eris, it is simultaneously moving into the last five degrees of Aries. At the same time, the intangible, perpetually opposing and constantly oscillating lunar nodes are winding up about a year and a half on the Virgo-Pisces axis.

Whenever an actual object or calculated point is concluding its tenure in a given sign, corresponding events often do correlate with what happens in the stretch run of a race. A sense of fatigue is to be expected. At the same time, intensity tends to reach a crescendo. All the while, there is no absolute certainty regarding the final outcome. Finally, all that has taken place since the start is reaching its final distillation.

Even though the Moon is now moving towards the end of its current cycle, the two weeks after a Full Moon (which took place only four days ago) usually represent more of a warm-down than a wind-up. In addition, and regardless of phase, the Moon in Sagittarius is nearly always a more lighthearted time than the previous couple days in Scorpio.

Of course, the choice of how to engage with contrasting astrological trends is ultimately yours to make. On the whole, however, it would probably be a good idea to go with what the Moon is offering and detach from the proverbial rat race for the next few days.

If the Sun, many of the planets and the lunar nodes are an accurate indication, any public scenario now approaching the end of its run will still be doing so on Monday. With only some exceptions for location, the weather at this time of year is between climactic extremes. Unless you are unavoidably caught up and unable to get off the political merry-go-round that this weekend looks to be, you could do a lot worse than to find some personal peace outdoors  — away from discouraging words.
