VENUS and MARS are OPPOSITE on Wednesday, so they’re almost opposite today and MOON touches them both today, from the earth-grazing sign of Taurus. Today we can enjoy the “green field,” that feeds us day after day. We can also enjoy our sensuality that Taurus feels, loves and feeds.
MOON in Taurus SEXTILES VENUS in Pisces at 6:08 pm PST. This bond between women is inside of every man and woman today. The inner mother is bonding with the inner daughter/maiden/female lover.
Meanwhile MOON TRINES MARS at 8:28 pm pst, connecting Mother with Son/Warrior. The divine MOTHER archetype is bonding today with both the divine feminine and the divine masculine, even while those two are magnetically polarized planets at this time, on opposite sides of the wheel of our ecliptic (path of the planets) in the night sky.
This lunar cycle, which is now in the waxing light, within days of peaking and fruiting, is the lunar cycle of the LOVERS in our current “Human Portal of Awakening,” that began with the FOOL at the New Moon following this past Mayan New Year, July 30, 2011. As we walk through this “human-galactic archetypal progression,” of the tarot archetypes in an intelligent, unfolding human awakening journey, we can participate actively by actively REVISIONING THE LOVERS archetype in our collective consciouhaven’t had the energy to make. This weekend–we’ll have the energy!
MOON OPPOSITE MARS pre-dawn gives us the masculine power umphf to go the distance. Tension in relationships could cause flare-ups. Anger and frustration, when harnessed can streamline into actions that serve our purpose.
SUN SQUARES MARS near the dawn of this day at 5:08 am, pst and we’re charged with solar energy and an active principle. Today is a day of ACTION and Purification in preparation for right action. Its good to excersize and because Mercury is retrograde and we are between two eclipses, it is important to take extra special care of our body as we excersize today be being extra care-filled especially on weak muscles or joints. Walking and hiking is better than running and jumping today.
MOON SQUARES MERCURY at 10:06 am, pst then MOON goes VOID of course between Pisces and Aries. This VOID of course moon is in the VOID for TWO DAYS!!!! This is a particularly LONG void of course period and with the Mercury circular trickster energy and the Eclipses which often cause things to be “eclipsed,” its good to allow ourselves to go over something again and again to get it right, having the patience to repeat ourselves where necessary or to redo something if needed. Meanwhile cosmic energy is asking us to become the “active eclipse servants,” by pulling out our sword of truth and chopping off every ear we still have to the voices of doubt and fear. We are refining our ability to say “No,” to the things in the way of our “Yes’s”
We’ll be floating in a Piscean watery feeling place, touching into the core in us from which “right action” comes. If there are glitches or things take longer than we expect this weekend, its good to have patience, flexibility, intuition, care and prayer with us through the tension of Mars squares and the VOID of the Moon’s slippery place between signs. It is good to navigate from the inside out by listening to our body this weekend. What does our body need from us to come into stronger “alignment” with earth and cosmos?
MOON moves into Aries on Saturday evening at 5:51 pm, pst, grounding us from the ‘between worlds void’ of Friday and Saturday. We’ll come out of the void like a rocket-ship as MOON conjuncts URANUS when fresh into Aries by 7:36 pm pdt, Saturday evening.
