Today is an astrologically busy day. The Sun perfects its opposition to Neptune shortly into the day, urging us to find a balance between action and reflection. A Venus-Chiron minor challenge this morning adds to the confusion. Blocks to intimacy are possible now as we focus on differences rather than similarities in our relationships.
Mars enters Virgo early today, where it will transit until October 22nd, and we have a passion for details and a need to do the right thing at just the right time. The satisfaction of a job well done is one of our greatest incentives now. We are more precise and concerned about our performance during this cycle.
Mercury turns direct this morning after retrograde motion since August 12th. Over the coming weeks, problems with communications and decision-making we may have encountered while Mercury was retrograde should start to improve. Plans or projects that have stalled might now resume. We can be flooded with energies that are hard to make sense of as the change takes place today, however, and thus critical decision-making might be avoided for the time being, as our thinking can be skewed. In fact, with all of these influences and shifts occurring today, there are simply too many distractions and a general lack of clarity to deal with now to make significant decisions.
A quincunx between Venus and Neptune this afternoon extends the theme of uncertainty and interrupts natural flow in our interactions.
The Moon is void from 1:17 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Mars), until the Moon enters Pisces shortly thereafter, at 1:30 AM EDT.
