Some of us are deadly serious, feeling we need to get down to the nitty-gritty, while others are thinking about and responding from their egos–and the two will definitely not get along. Same story for those who want to spread Love and sunshine and those who feel there’s something negative right around the corner that they just can’t anticipate–all they can do is fret and walk around with a personal raincloud over their heads. Everyone picks a mood and goes with it, to (mostly) less than harmonious results. Communication is bizarre, or bizarrely misunderstood, and our own thoughts may lead us to radical conclusions, or off the deep end. Surprising revelations may be on the agenda, and what we don’t know can cost us. This really isn’t as much of a problem as it seems; it’s a day to work and do what we do and just be alone, abandoning the inclination toward typical Monday morning frenzied pursuit of goals in favor of meeting the day in a more receptive, contemplative way, one that allows plenty of quiet, and centers on Self-reliance.
Mars has just entered Leo, where his war cry is likely to be, “Do it for me!” or maybe, “Do it for glory!” The Warrior will be making no aspects, other than a trine to the South Node, which practically begs us to go back to old, ‘easy’ ways, just to get something (exciting) going. With the Moon moving into Cancer just before 6 AM Pacific time, if we care unthinkingly, we may get swept up in movements and causes that aren’t ours. Just remember not to let emotion drive the wagon, and ask yourself, ‘What do I need?’ in order to re-center on what’s important to you. (Perfecting today: Mars contra-parallel Pluto, Venus square Sedna, Mercury sesquiquadrate Uranus)
