Friday, OCTOBER 1
Mars opposes Chiron this morning. This transit can complicate our lives if we can’t see how to pursue our interests and desires directly, straightforwardly. We can be defensive and touchy, and resentments or frustrations can surface now. Watch for self-righteous, superior, or rebellious attitudes when a gentler approach is preferable.
Mercury, currently retrograde, forms a square to Pluto, and we can be telling others only what we want them to know. There is a tendency to worry and obsess, and there’s a backward focus to today’s thoughts and conversations. We should try to avoid forcing our ideas on others and strive to maintain an open mind. We can become obsessed with getting our message across and for others to agree with our thoughts. This aspect may play to our insecurities and fears that we’re not getting all the information we need. Mental anxiety or troubles could manifest now. Compulsive thinking is possible, but with mindfulness, we might engage in in-depth, penetrating communication or think more deeply about a matter.
As the day advances, we head towards a Venus-Pluto sextile that helps us gain new insight into our relationships, money matters, and comfort or pleasure needs. Or, we take a comfortably strategic approach to these affairs. Our feelings are more focused and intensified in a generally pleasant and positive way. In fact, we seek depth of emotion and authenticity in our dealings.
The Moon spends the day in the sign of Leo.
