8 AM PDT of the 31st the Aries Moon opposes retro Mars and quincunxes Saturn; what ensues may be an emotional tug-of-war over independence and leading the way–and yet motives are confused and people may end up contradicting themselves in the race to be first or to be in charge. The vibe ends up being disconcerting to those who think about who’s saying what; those lacking introspection sail through with nary a scratch. Anyone who wants to win will go the restrained and modest route. Noon Pacific time the Moon sextiles Venus. It’s a good time for an assignation, as long as you follow the rules (Venus in Aquarius). 2 PM PDT the Moon trines Pallas. Emotional wisdom is easily accessible and can guide choice and action at this time in a successful direction. 3 PM PDT the Moon opposes Vesta. We may feel distant from our highest values at this point; enacting emotional independence gives us the impression that we don’t have to put our priorities and obligations into the equation–it would be a mistake not to. 7 PM PDT the Moon conjuncts the South Node and opposes North Node-Ceres. We may take a trip down memory lane, or even actually fall back into old ways, and lose our mojo. Stay focused in the present, and clear about the influence we hold and the territory that is ours, for best results. Void begins at 7:21 PM PDT as the Moon begins to move out of opposition to Ceres; the Moon enters Taurus at 10:21 PM PDT.
I’ve been so busy I failed to update the charts for ECLIPSE in a timely way, but they’re fixed now—also updated what’s in the current ECLIPSE, which you can see here. I hope you enjoyed the New Moon new start–have a great week!
