Things aren’t going to blow up in your life (unless your chart says so) and no the axe of doom is not going to fall on you. What’s going on here, folks is a grand cross. What is a grand cross? For those that don’t know, it is a configuration in the heavens where four planetary bodies are in challenge and opposition aspect to each other. It’s like astrological weather. When it rains, you can’t help but to get hit with raindrops.
Significantly, this cross is in mutable signs, which is like having a roomful cats in a roomful of rocking chairs trying to avoid the other cats and the rocking chairs.
I think that describes it well.
The moon is now in Gemini, squaring the planet of communication, Mercury, squaring the planet of duties and responsibilities Saturn, squaring the planet of delusions, Neptune. In other words we are feeling quite put upon by the universe and now have a great need to tell everyone how bad things are.
But there is good news too.
It’s all going to be okay. For one thing, Mercury, is now direct. Yeah! We can move ahead without looking over our shoulder now. Travel, party, buy that outrageously expensive car you want. It’s all good.
The sun will move into Libra tomorrow. Yeah. No one but Virgos likes the sun being in Virgo. And Libra is much more fun. But whenever a planet is at 29 degrees ready to change signs there is an air of anxiety and anticipation. Recognize that and roll with it.
Venus is sextile Mars. Yeah! Fire and air signs have a wonderful opportunity to spark romance. Go for it. Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Everyone else? There is always knitting.
Pluto is trine Mercury. This is an excellent time to write and make powerful statements. If you have a complaint letter to write to the Evil Empire, Inc. regarding the terrible service and or general yukiness of their products, do so. You’ll feel better. Also it can be a good time to file bankruptcy.
So it’s not that your glass is half empty. It’s more like, hey, put some more water in it.
Otherwise drink two cups of chamomile and call me in the morning.
