4:30 PM PDT of the 7th the Moon squares Saturn, and by 5:30 PM the Moon is quincunx Vesta; these aspects are followed 7:30 PM Pacific by the Moon square h.Zeus, and 9:30 PM the Moon is quincunx Pallas. The story seems to be contentious, with one misstep leading to another, and another. We may be disgruntled with reality itself; the rules and boundaries seem specifically designed to annoy. We try to adjust according to our highest values, but they seem bothersome, too! So, we declare, ‘The hell with this!’ and go straight for a big ambition or desire–and finding, within and without, feedback that tells us that our goal is just not a smart one, at least not right now. What an evening!
10:30 AM PDT of the 8th sees the Moon square the Mercury/ Venus conjunction in Aries, making for an emotional tinder box ready to spark. There’s almost no way to communicate that isn’t like throwing a Molotov cocktail, so if you can’t stand the firefight, don’t converse! Maybe I should explain: the problem is that the receiver will be ultra-sensitive and the sender will be (probably completely inadvertently) attacking values, relationships, and/ or financial judgments. And the energy goes both ways, so we can each play either part multiple times. Yippee. It only gets worse as the Moon moves on and places Sedna sextile itself, while still aspecting Merc/ Venus; this means that when we try to explain, make up, soothe our own or another’s hurt feelings, we just won’t know what we’re doing. This is a day to keep things steady and to keep opinions to ourselves, because the real damage is done when we blithely speak without thinking; we just assume others think the same thing, or see things the same way–and they don’t.
