Morning Star: Daily Astrology for October 26, 2014

This morning we wake up to the Moon newly in Sagittarius (midnight last night). Then, early in the morning, Mars shifts to Capricorn (6:43 AM). Right after this power shift occurs, Moon meets Neptune by square. That's a bit of a conundrum right there. It can, quite simply, equate to a drive to work but a need for rest. Heed what you NEED first by taking care of emotional body. That's my simple way of giving you permission to sleep in if you need to, attend to any swamping emotions if you need to, tend to any hangovers (emotional or chemically induced) if you need to. They are pressing and need your attention rather than your avoidance this morning.

Any initiatives taken to bring clarity to your emotional body pays off as the Moon waxes toward a square with Chiron in Pisces perfecting at midnight tonight. Any initiatives toward escape only make the primordial pains worse.

It is a good day to rest and restore. See a movie. Read a book. Get outside in search of grounding which will alleviate the potential of swamping emotions and satisfy Mars newly in Capricorn at the same time. It is likely to be a slow and introverted day. Sounds odd for a Moon in Sagittarius. But, the early degrees of these Moons in aspect to our bodies in Pisces does call for such.

This is especially true if you are ill at this time. You cannot physically lead through your actions when your body is depleted. Use today to take meticulous care for tomorrow is a possibly high energy and busy day. The first of the work week has the potential to begin with a bang of activity with the Moon's trine to Uranus and Jupiter. You will want to be well rested and prepared to take advantage of that. At the same time, there will be a Sun/Venus trine to Neptune that could take the call to action right out of the equation. We will need restorative and grounded efforts to handle it effectively, either way.
