Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 9
The Moon spends the day in Gemini, stimulating our desire to mingle, connect, chat, and learn. Today’s Sun-Jupiter trine encourages a desire to grow, expand, improve, and impress. Whether it’s a business venture, friendship, attitude, self-improvement endeavor, or relationship, we want to bring it to the next level. Enthusiasm runs high, and cooperation comes easily. We might make grand gestures, show off a little, and rise above petty problems and differences.
While optimism is strong, Mars stations and turns retrograde today, suggesting we might reserve judgment. There can be some difficulties knowing what we want as the shift occurs. During the Mars retrograde cycle itself, which spans from today until November 13th, we need to re-assess our current projects, our approach to getting what we want, and our desires. Rather than directly asserting our desires, we are more reflective and cautious.
Mars in direct motion is straightforward, assertive, and even aggressive, but with Mars in retrograde motion, Mars energy is essentially turned inward – it’s internalized, intensified, personalized, and perhaps pressurized. We can be hesitant about taking action, second-guessing our instincts or our natural impulses rather than acting upon them. This cycle affords us the chance to learn more about what we want and how we pursue our desires. Today, we’re shifting gears.
