Moon enters Aries 9:57 AM EST
Mars in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Pisces 8:38 AM EST
Sun conjunct Saturn in Aquarius 2:05 PM EST
Moon will burst forth into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, today at 9:57 AM EST for the beginning of the Lunar month, a completely fresh cycle with plenty of initiative and drive to undertake new things. Aries Moon is explosive expression, feelings are BIG and they are LOUD and they will not be restrained. This is an excellent time to begin new things, and to push forward where perhaps hesitation or restraint has previously been required. Aries Moon encourages blunt force breaking down walls with headstrong adamance, and unstoppable drive.
Mars in Capricorn is taking our instinctual drives and demanding perfection right now. Mars seeks highest aspiration and puts forth relentless effort in the sign of the goat, where Mars is considered to be exalted, and in a naturally powerful place that pushes for success. Today, this exacting Mars in all of it’s well laid plans and intense effort will sextile dreamy Jupiter in Pisces, taking our plans to a new level of optimism that is most welcome, considering Capricorn Mars tends to pick things apart for what can go WRONG, and we may therefore be held back by not seeing in front of us what is already RIGHT. Jupiter in Pisces opens the door in this sextile to harken unto the spiritual, adding a layer of intuitive grace to our otherwise very mundane, very concrete goals of the moment. Jupiter in Pisces can help us to take the edge of pressure off of current plans and situations, and we can perhaps feel our way around obstacles a little more easily with it’s intuitive ebb and flow.
Sun in future focused Aquarius will meet up with Saturn, planet of discipline and reward for effort made today. Reward means that with Saturn, we always reap what we have sown, which can be pleasant or unpleasant. Since Saturn entered this sign upon the Winter Solstice of 2020, it has been inspiring dramatic, and sometimes, sudden change, with Aquarius being the sign of unexpected awakening, and of creating a better future that does not find the constraints of conventional thought at all tolerable. Saturn in Aquarius is restructuring the networks around us, the human web of collective consciousness and collective growth and evolution. We have been deep in a process of redefining our tribes since the taskmaster began making demands of us in Aquarius, and today it reaches a conjunction to Sun at the 15 degree mark, the halfway point of the sign. Sun here highlights our progress thus far, and seeks to take changes we’ve made and make them concrete, as concrete as Aquarius, the sign of perpetual evolution, can possibly be. Fixed signs, (that’s YOU, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) will feel this most powerful checkpoint most powerfully as it seeks to reinforce lessons that inspire growth. The call for change may be quite powerful. It’s time to find our individual places within the collective again, the new direction has been constructed here, and it’s time to figure out exactly what role we are to play, to define not just the endgame…but to decide how we want to evolve as we pursue it.
