Saturday, OCTOBER 9
The Moon continues its transit of Scorpio until it heads into Sagittarius at 11:24 AM EDT. Retrograde Mercury aligns with the Sun and then Mars today. We get a unique window into the past as it might impact our future, and it’s a powerful time to process recent events and ideas. We begin looking at problems or issues from a new perspective and with a new understanding. Significant new ideas are born at this time, and they’re likely to have real staying power or importance in our lives. What we say or write now has an impact, for better or for worse!
However, we may not have all the facts necessary to reach a definite conclusion, and we might later have to revise some plans or decisions. It can certainly be a time of racing minds and excited thoughts. Keeping busy and making headway satisfies us more than usual today. It will be imperative to channel excess mental energy constructively, or we may feel nervous, impatient, and irritable without a good channel for expressing this energy. We may want to get right to the point so that communications may be on the insensitive side.
With Mercury retrograde, we might renew interest in handling an old problem or reviving a past project. A problem from the past can re-emerge now, and we feel driven to take care of it, although it can be challenging to stay centered. We should watch for impatience, snappiness, and impulsive moves and words.
Also today, Venus aligns with the true South Node of the Moon, and we are more sensitive to whether or not some connections (or elements of our relationships) support our growth. It’s best to watch for a tendency to fall back on behaviors and indulgences that keep us distant from our true feelings and needs.
The void Moon occurs from 2:05 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Pluto), until the Moon enters Sagittarius at 11:24 AM EDT.
