It's another busy (and fickle) Astrological day today. This morning we wake up to the Moon in Gemini leaving an opposition with Saturn (2:01 AM). I don't know about you, but I'm glad I slept through most of that. It can seriously be a drag. Now, the Moon is waxing toward a square with Neptune (11:11 AM). Waking up is a slow exercise. It may take a few extra cups of coffee to get our mental gears turning in the right direction.
By 3:54 PM, the Moon is conjunct Venus in Gemini. This is light, relaxed and potentially flirty. Venus in Gemini is the biggest flirt in the Universe. I enjoy that part of this placement. Venus is much happier now that she is moving out of reach of both Saturn and Neptune. She was in a fairly sad state when trapped between those two. But, now, she flits around on the breeze in between rainstorms. There also isn't much ambition wrapped up in any of this morning's aspects. We are relaxed if not a little emotional this morning. By mid-day, we are more prone to light conversation and chatter (perhaps flirty or gossipy inclined) with our co-workers and friends than putting our noses to the grindstone. Although there is a serious “nose to the grindstone” supportive aspect waxing in tonight. Mars in Taurus meets Pluto in Capricorn by trine at 5:30 PM.
Some have been feeding from and riding on this energy in the previous days as this aspect has been waxing in. This is sturdy grit and endurance placed behind our ability to plow through the work ahead of us. It's powerful and, at it's worst, is power hungry, lusty and perhaps, even, bloodthirsty. But, steered in the right direction, this aspect can be a force of indestructibility readily renewing its fuel and continually pushing forward. I like it. If you need to accomplish something and you can get your emotional body on board (because emotionally we may not be geared toward accomplishing much today), then you can veritably move mountains.
This is also a great afternoon to really push or step up your exercise routine. There is a good chance that physical exertion makes us feel good about ourselves as the Moon waxes into Jupiter by sextile at 5:45. Dig deep. Feel the burn. LOL, I used to be an exercise instructor. I never used those phrases. However, I did used to say, “DON'T FORGET TO BREATHE!” and “Think about all the Oreo's we can eat after this!” But, anyway.
This morning starts soggy but gradually begins to dry up. Then, by this afternoon, we are taking care of business and checking long awaited “to do” items off our lists; perhaps, burning off some of that cheesecake we had this weekend; and maybe, just maybe, even feeling a bit amorous. Casual flirts exchanged this morning could lead to more serious stuff tonight. So...um...keep that in mind if you are flirting and make sure you mean it. Cause it just might work a little too well. Grin. Wink. Wink.
