Morning Star: Daily Astrology for February 7, 2015

This morning we wake up to a Void Moon in Virgo. At 1:45 PM, she passes into Libra and becomes active again. Her first aspect is a trine to Mercury Rx in Aquarius at 6:08 PM. Shortly after there is a sextile to Saturn (9:45 PM).

I'm seeing Mercury sextile Saturn as a boost to finally help get the facts straight. This is going to linger for awhile. Mercury turns direct next week (Feb. 11). When he starts moving forward again, he will perfect in sextile to Saturn once more (Feb. 19). But, the energy remains within orb the entire time.

As the Moon enters into aspect with Mercury and Saturn today, we can be diplomatic about fact gathering. This set of aspects creates a highly supportive mini-trine. There is plenty of opportunity here to look at details from many angles. With Moon in Libra, we get to see the flip-side. Or at least consider it. Above and beyond that, though, this mini-trine holds some highly intelligent energy.

Meawhile, Venus is busy today too. She is waxing into sextile with the Dark Lord, Pluto in Capricorn. Sweet seduction is brewing underneath these conversations that happen today. Temptation is calling. Desires are deepening. In some instances, love is being born. In others, it is already present and becoming more enriched.

I have this bag of Dove Dark Chocolates (very Venus/Pluto btw). With each little candy there is a message, kind of like a fortune cookie. Yesterday, I drew out three that had the same message. “Give yourself permission.” I taped all three to my desk as a reminder. This energy begs you to give yourself permission to think things through. Don't be afraid of the truth. Don't be afraid to talk about it. Open up your heart and reach out to bridge connections with others. Today holds all that opportunity for us.
