Venus enters its own sign, Libra, today where it performs very well and transits until November 7th. We tend to employ charm for getting what we want during this cycle. We are very obliging with others and quite willing to negotiate and compromise. We can be especially idealistic about love. We prefer things to be done the “right” way and are turned off by aggressive or uncouth behavior. The shadow side of this position is dependency, inconsistency, and superficiality. In an attempt to avoid unpleasant situations, we could easily gloss over deeper issues at play in our relationships. It’s probably best to avoid the trap of acquiescing to our partners but privately resenting the fact or thinking ourselves martyrs for doing so! This is also a time when we are more artistically inclined. We seek balance and harmony in our personal environments.
A quincunx between Mercury and Chiron occurs this morning. Decisions can be hard to come by under this influence, as we tend to doubt our perceptions or the effectiveness of our ability to solve problems. It can be hard to read the intention behind the words used to communicate now, which can lead to minor misunderstandings.
A Sun-Moon sextile this afternoon is cooperative, creative, and focused on the positive. We’re moving into a Mercury-Uranus opposition, exact early tomorrow, and we can be a little confrontational or rebellious in our communications, however. Disagreements with others are entirely possible. It’s not the time to present an argument or an important idea, but the friction stimulated now can challenge us to learn more about our minds and opinions. Epiphanies and unusual ideas can occur. We might learn something valuable through others’ opposition to our ideas. The Moon is in Leo all day.
