Wednesday, AUGUST 18
The Moon moves into Capricorn at 1:58 AM EDT, sensitizing us to our ambitions, goals, and sense of control. Mercury aligns with Mars in the sign of Virgo tonight, and it’s a time of motivated, energetic work, particularly related to communications and the mind. Work and health can be a strong focus, interest, or topic. We want to get right to the point so that communications can be on the insensitive side but also direct and clear. Taking care of business is a central theme now. Keeping busy and making headway satisfies us more than usual, and it will be vital to channel excess mental energy constructively. Otherwise, we feel nervous, impatient, and irritable. There can be aggressive or excited thinking or communications.
Both Mercury and Mars form a quincunx to Chiron today, complicating matters and increasing the chances that misunderstandings or frustrations can result from our discussions. With these aspects in play, doubts and sensitivity can figure strongly. We can find it challenging to be both assertive and sensitive and possibly see-saw between one and the other. It’s not easy to assert ourselves effectively without provoking others. The trick may be to combine sensitivity and directness instead of narrowing our choices to either/or.
The void Moon continues today until the Moon enters Capricorn at 1:58 AM EDT.
