Morning Star: Daily Astrology for March 10, 2014

Moon in Cancer crosses through the Cardinal t-square early today. First, she wakes up next to Jupiter at 6:38 AM EDT. That's huge potential to get up on the right side of the bed. Did you sleep well? Did you have pleasant dreams? I hope so. Good morning.

Right at the beginning of morning business (8:06 AM), Cancer Moon squares off with Uranus in Aries. She is still feeling the exuberance of her conjunction with Jupiter and then...”What does this punk want?”

Jupiter and Uranus are at 10 28 and 11 11 respectively. That is REALLY close! These two Gods are locked and loaded right now. Both are going direct. I called this the “Big Itchy Scratchy” when the two met at the same degrees with Jupiter RX. Looks like we are on the verge of a relapse. I can't say I don't enjoy the wildness of this. I feel it. Do you? It is tempting to let it just run out of control.

At lunchtime (12:08 PM), the tension increases as the Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn. Momma is staring across the zodiac at Pluto. She's got a good view of what he is up to. You get to decide how she feels about it.

The Moon's last aspect of the day comes at 1:23 PM with a trine to Chiron. Can you pick something out of this Cardinal T-square with the Moon this morning that can help you heal? That may help all of us heal? Water is involved on both sides of this trine. Is an emotional purge in order? Or are we just going to eat our pain?

Mercury in Aquarius inches closer and closer in square to Saturn in Scorpio. This perfects at 2:15 AM but it sets the undertone for the day. What do you know (Mercury) about Freedom (Aquarius)? Do you have shadow traits (Scorpio) that are tripping you up? Are you willing to recognize them? What is your relationship with power like? Yours? The power of others? Learn from this square instead of just allowing it to put negative thoughts in your head.

It is a busy morning. Eat a solid breakfast so you have the energy to wrangle the energy. Keep your radar up for things that are happening but not being spoken about. Act in a way that is mindful of what will be beneficial to your future self. You can work the power of this t-square. It isn't an easy task—but it IS NOT impossible.

Leave room for downtime and recuperation tonight. Bear in mind the rest of your household is feeling this too and may also need time to retreat.

By tomorrow morning, the Moon is out of the t-square and the square between Mercury and Saturn is separating. Very different day. Keep that in mind if today wears you down.

We are working our way toward climax here. Full Moon is coming. Emotions are building. Be easy with yourself and others.
