Saturday, August 6th, the Moon starts the day void-of-course in Virgo until 11:57 AM when the Moon enters Libra, the balancer, and is no longer void-of-course. You may want to set your important appointments for after that time!
Mercury square Saturn, 8:18 AM: With this planetary combination in effect for the last 3 days, life seem to move at an incredibly slow pace. And this combo will continue to be strong through Monday or Tuesday of next week. This can feel like a Mercury retrograde time but it’s not. Our thinking may feel slowed or we may be over thinking things to death and experiencing “analysis paralysis”. We can use this time for critical thinking, long term planning, assessing the long term value of people and things in our life.
With Mercury connecting with Saturn today and Neptune on Sunday, this bring together this 16 month alignment of Saturn and Neptune, the “Mutable Dilemma” as coined by friend Kim McSherry. The Saturn/Neptune alignment has been responsible for this sluggish period we have been in since the end of March. We all experienced the intensity of this alignment, especially in June and early July. We will definitely feel this same sluggishness in September, very strongly as Saturn and Neptune align for the last time on September 10th. Saturn wants a clear and simple path to solve the problems and Neptune wants a real solution, not a quick fix. Personally, we may feel very indecisive, overwhelmed or even wanting to hid out and avoid anything negative. We want to take action but no course seems clear.
With Mercury bridging a connection between both these planets, today and tomorrow, we may benefit a lot from taking some time to ourselves for rest, meditation and healing. Keep your plans and agendas simple. Avoid the drama.
The Moon enters Libra at 11:57 AM and is no longer void-of-course. Our encounters with others will be more meaningful as Luna transits Libra.
Moon sextiles Mars, 5:06 PM: Our energy levels remain strong through the later afternoon and early evening. We may be feel restless and a bit bored. This is a good time for an adventure.
Venus squares Mars, 7:20 PM: With this combination in effect for the last couple of days, relationships with other people seems to be more difficult. We may feel that we have to fight for what we want. We are interested in more competitive encounters. If you have been having difficulties with your relationships, this could certainly brings things to a head. This can make us feel justified in acting any way we want, rationalizing our selfishness. This energy can be used for exercise, paying more attention to your health regime or investing your time and money into a hobby. It will be easier to be open and to the point when these two planets meet.
All times are central.
