Saturday, AUGUST 14
This morning, a Venus-Jupiter quincunx is a minor aspect, but it can stir some further restlessness along with some indecision about putting ourselves out there. A strong desire for the pleasures of life is in emphasis, although our eyes can be bigger than our stomachs. Challenges in relationships today are likely due to overblown expectations. Just for now, it can be challenging to find a balance between what we want to do and what we think we should do.
Also this morning, Mars and Pluto form a minor square, and we should watch for putting too much pressure on ourselves to make change happen. The other side of this is stubbornly resisting it, and either way can be problematic now. We may feel at battle with ourselves and others, as putting faith and trust in people–and perhaps life itself–can be difficult. There can be a tendency to want to manipulate or connive to get what we want now. It’s better to draw upon self-control and wait things out to gain some perspective.
As the day advances, we head towards a Sun-Neptune quincunx. With this transit, we might feel that others are draining our energy, especially if what they want from us is unclear. We can be feeling slightly off or out of sorts, and there can be difficulties concentrating or figuring out our next step. These things are more likely if we’ve neglected our spiritual needs, and it makes sense to slow down and adjust. Incorporating and recognizing the need for more imagination in our lives seems necessary now. The Moon spends the day in the sign of Scorpio.
