Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 23
Mercury forms a square to Saturn this morning, and we tend to focus on the negative possibilities, which can be the first step before we get to a place of realism. We can be preoccupied with serious or weighty issues. There can be difficulties getting our message across or physically getting somewhere. Instead, we may need to revise a project or idea, and people may seem overly critical, insensitive, or sarcastic. It’s challenging to trust our instincts temporarily. It may be best to seek the motivation to make changes rather than focus too heavily on flaws and limitations.
However, it can be challenging with Mercury also heading toward an opposition to retrograde Mars, exact tomorrow morning. This aspect can introduce some tensions related to bottled-up resentment or anger and possible technical problems and issues that seem to slow things down. Watch for sharp words and errors in judgment all day.
Also today, a Venus-Neptune quincunx can make it difficult to feel in touch with our intuition on financial, social, and romantic levels.
The Moon continues its transit of Sagittarius until it enters Capricorn at 7:17 PM EDT, and the First Quarter Moon is exact tonight when the Capricorn Moon forms a square to the Sun in Libra. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action. Shortly after, we become aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. It’s a time of stress, but it’s the kind of tension that motivates us to make changes.
The void Moon occurs from 1:32 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Mars), until the Moon enters Capricorn at 7:17 PM EDT.
