Heavy work and social commitments will be keeping me from commenting in the Blogosphere as much as I’d like over the next week or so; I just popped in to make a few observations about today, and will try and get a full report out for tomorrow later this evening. Of course, it’s no biggie if you’ve got the March Forecast available in ECLIPSE http://dogandsunflower.wordpress.com/eclipse-in-depth-astrology-for-the-21st-century/ I’m at work on the Spring issue right now, and appreciate every sale– thanks for your support!
Now, on to why you’re really here. The Libra Moon quincunxes the Sun and then conjuncts Zeus 1 PM-3PM today PST. This may light up something that makes us feel uncomfortable, and the answer for many will be either 1) putting ambition or Will-fulfillment efforts into high gear, or 2) aligning with those who are perceived to hold the power. Libra only encourages alliances, and when they seem to be the answer to our own emotional discomfort we may be too quick to throw our lot in with someone a little more Machievellian than we would normally hang out with–and that means this is an influence that could put us in over our heads with the wrong people more quickly than we might realize. For those who keep the power in their own hands, this will actually work out better, though here the caution is to avoid a one-note push forward that focuses too strongly on the Self; this can be avoided by monitoring the emotional reactions, as the Libra Moon will help keep consideration of others at the forefront of thought and response.
We’re well into tomorrow PST before the Moon makes overtures to any other body, so I’ll leave you with the aspect of the day: Vesta in Leo opposed Neptune in Aquarius. This can create an interesting stand-off for us, internally or externally, as the purest conception of what we find sacred in life (Vesta) is challenged to live up to the ideals present in real-life (Neptune); and of course there’s a lot of ego and pride behind upholding what we consider sacred (Leo), so that when we are presented with the contrast to the way the ideals have actually structured our existence (through the Higher Mind–Aquarius–as it directs Spirit) we may be disconcerted to find that there is a gap between what we purport to believe and the way we have created this in the life. It’s important that we align these two, for our own spiritual health; we have until December 15th, 2011 to do it–that’s when Vesta meets Neptune at 28 Aquarius, and the two need to blend perfectly, as dissonance will be felt in every cell.
