Easy or supportive relationships—like the conjunction, trine, and sextile—describe comfortable and supportive flow between the two planets and all things they govern. Challenging relationships—like a square or opposition—are tension-producing and discordant. Yet, if we work with it, this discomfort can dare us to take positive action, like a teacher who challenges us to stretch ourselves. Moon trine Venus: Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste. Moon conjunct Mars: Do you need to work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.
Moon square Mercury: Challenging Moon/Mercury aspects bring a tendency to get lost in the mind and inspire glitches in all things Mercurial; we can get more edgy, irritable, anxious, scattered, diffused, glib. Cure for Moon/Mercury discomfort: Reconnect mind and heart. Waxing Half Moon in Aries: The moon is our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche. When in fiery Aries we become more brave, direct, rebellious and energized. Our inner teenager comes alive; our adult self needs to direct the energy wisely. Moon trine Mercury: Do you need to think? Talk? Travel? Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer. Moon opposition Venus: Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy. Moon sextile Mars: Do you need to work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.excerptsadapted from Heather Roan Robbins‘ Sun Signs and Sun Transits

We need to take care of what really matters this week as the Sun conjuncts Pluto, and take care of our immune system and joints for the next two weeks while Jupiter squares sensitizing Neptune, feisty Mars squares Saturn, and mobile Mercury conjuncts Saturn. As the weekend begins, we watch our national government hit a crisis in limits, power struggle, responsibility and integrity. We may also run into a personal limit, or some intense experience which reminds us of our priorities as the Sun conjuncts Pluto on Friday. In response we may need to make decisions which end one series of possibilities and allow another to progress on Sunday as Mercury conjuncts Saturn. It could be time to set a limit, to release what’s not working so we can reorganize and reinvigorate what does. Activating Mars, now in fiery Aries, squares off with the old guard inflexibility and strength of Saturn in Capricorn and, like a combustion engine, help drive us forward but can also leave our joints inflamed, our tempers flaring, and our politicians irritated. This square can temporarily widen the generation gap and political divide; what’s obvious to each side is so inflexibly clear to each side. We need to encourage the emotional and physical flexibility, to stretch our soul, our mind, our joints and sense of possibilities so we don’t take on the tension from our surroundings and can roll into better possibilities. . . .
