Saturday—Mercury & Venus move into Libra
Mercury is “The Thinker,” and involves our communication skills: what we say, our words, our voice, and our thoughts, including the Teacher/Student, Master/Apprentice mode. Mercury affects how we connect with all the media tools of the day—our computers, phones, and even the postal, publishing and recording systems!
Venus is our recognition of love, art and beauty. Venus is harmony in its expressed form, as well as compassion, bliss and acceptance.
Airy Libra brings forth beauty, equality, egalitarianism, cooperation. We grow more friendly, relationship oriented, and incensed by injustice.
Moon conjunct Venus & Mercury
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.
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.
Wednesday—Saturn goes direct
Saturn is the task master: active when we set a goal or plan then work strongly and steadily toward achieving what we have set out to do. Saturn takes life seriously along the way and can be rather stern, putting on an extra load of responsibility and effort.
Friday—Moon trine Venus & Mercury
Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects to be diplomatic or nurture romance. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon to think, talk or travel. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer.

The swirling winds of this full moon can also help us let go of old angers, though leave us easily triggered into a fresh snit — whether we are right or wrong — as Mars opposes Neptune under this sensitive Pisces Moon. It’s easy to feel weepy or go off about something that’s not really true. One may also be unusually permeable under this Pisces Moon and pick up feelings from the people nearby, . . .
. . . But it won’t all be an emotional projection. As the weekend progresses, we can be triggered by real events and moved to action. The Sun and Mars both form a helpful trine to the tough Saturn/South node/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, which is this year’s chief astrological feature. Peoples’ actions will give us clear clues to their true nature. Expect a lively debate about how power and authority is used. . . . . . the winds shift on Saturday, and the mood becomes both more friendly and more rebellious. Mental Mercury and affection Venus both leave thoughtful, irritable Virgo and enter friendlier Libra, while the Moon, which sets the emotional tone of the day, leaves sensitive Pisces and enters rebellious Aries. In the weeks ahead it will be easier for kids to make new friends at school. . . . Issues of social justice can light our fire, and so can questions about fairness and aesthetics on the home front. . . .
. . . Saturn turns direct after a long retrograde while the Moon in steady and pragmatic Taurus forms a grand trine with Mars, Sun, and Saturn on the other corner. Some project that percolated last year but got put on hold last May when Saturn turn retrograde, will now begin to manifest. . . .
