This month is so busy astrologically as the planets lined up in Virgo take turns aspecting others in Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces, and Sagittarius.
Today it’s Virgo-ruler Mercury’s turn to engage with Saturn in Capricorn. They form a steadying and earthy trine, exact this morning at 8:37 EDT.
Use today for long-term planning, serious conversation, establishing structure and guidelines, any thinking or communication that requires steadfast focus and attention to detail. This transit is also good for performing intricate physical tasks that demand discipline and persistence.
The waxing crescent Moon moves through the first decan of Sagittarius today, lifting the mood from yesterday. Take a break from work for a bit of exploring, even if it’s just a walk through an unfamiliar part of town.
This evening the Moon tangles with a cranky Mars, bringing a snappish and irritable mood. Spend the time by yourself and, if possible, do something physical to blow off steam.
At 11:10 PM EDT the Sagittarius Moon enters the second quarter phase. The Moon is halfway between new and full, marking a choice-point, a place where we need to make decisions and take action in some part of our lives.
