Morning Star: Daily Astrology for November 1, 2014

This morning, the Moon is Void in Aquarius having made her last aspect, a square to Saturn, at 2:22 AM. She is void until entering Pisces at 12:37 PM. Prior to that, Mercury in Libra perfects in sextile to Jupiter in Leo at 8:45 AM.

Mercury has held his sextile to Jupiter for several days as he turned direct. This aspects heralds his third passage through the third decan of Libra on his way to Scorpio. Meanwhile at 7:06 PM, Venus meets Pluto by sextile and Mars meets Neptune by sextile at 7:44 PM.

Tongues are wagging. Our desires run deeply. And, our workaholic tendencies are softened a bit by Neptune. This would be a great night for a concert! The caution would be to not overdo it on the drinking. Alcohol and intoxicants could have an increased effect with both Moon and Mars making direct contact to Neptune. Plus, with Mars/Neptune, there could be some angry drunks to deal with. But, all of this great for dancing, socializing and cranking up the volume on your favorite tunes.

Here's the caution, though. If you do not have a solid handle on your desires, your subconscious could seriously take over. You could do something in pursuit of these desires that later you catch yourself saying, “Yeah, I'm not sure why I did that.” On the social scene, one night stands will likely abound.

If you are not out running the bars, music concerts and getting laid by random strangers, it is a also a good day to catch up on conversations with partners and friends. Relax a bit and maybe even indulge in some comfort foods or sweets. Insert strawberries and champagne here. Mix gently with good conversation and some soft music. Continue until well romanticized.

On the other hand, the more negative expression of this energy could have you completely obsessed with something or someone to the point that you don't know how you feel or become emotional. We could be crying mad. Or, our over emotionality could zap our energy entirely.

If you need a day to grieve, the next two hold potential for that. The watery realms of Pisces are great for emotional purges. We can use Mercury/Jupiter to bring our thinking toward more positive things or at least say what needs to be said in an effort to get it out of our heads and through our mouths. Venus/Pluto can assist us in letting go or relinquishing those unattainable desires at her highest expression. But, at her lowest, she can prompt us to dig talons into the thing becoming jealous and possessive.

Mars/Neptune can ease the anger associated with grief, finally allowing us to have a good cry over the whole thing. Or, it could whip our emotional bodies up in a fury.

So, there are several extremes to this energy. No surprise there. It is the season of Scorpionic extremes. We could be prompted to go out and have a ridiculously good time that may be hard to remember later. Or, we could be prompted to hole up in our little emotional caverns and stew.

These aspects could also make for a dreamy night in the realm of solid relationships. This could be the night of payoff or reward for all the efforts taken in working on your partnerships. Venus/Pluto could deepen intimacy and attraction. Mars and Neptune could help each partner to fulfill sexual fantasies. Moon could, if only for a moment, help us feel those soul mate like connections.

Wherever you are in your emotional life, expect a punctuation point to be put at the end of that. Tears of joy are just as possible as tears of pain. Feelings of bliss are just as possible as having a run away brain that steers us toward obsession and grief.

I don't know about you, but, I think the more positive expression of this energy sounds better than being emotionally swamped and forlorn. I mean, champagne, strawberries, good music and fantasy sex? Yes. I'll take some of that please.

 
Know that you also have a choice. Pick what you need from the menu carefully because it will be what you take to bed with you tonight. By 8:49 PM Moon is conjunct Neptune and sextile Mars. Contentment, satisfaction and bliss or writhing, self-torture and gnashing of teeth. Heaven or Hell. You decide. Could be the day of rectification where your previous actions have already decided for you, as well.
