On Monday, the Moon will be in cranky Capricorn. Aside from that influence, a cheerful sextile between Mars and Venus at 4:50 am EDT at 29 degrees of their respective signs (Capricorn & Pisces), represents a pivotal influence for personal relationships. 29 degrees of any sign is the most critical degree of any sign. For these two signs it speaks to both practical pragmatism and romantic idealism.
As a result, in certain time zones it may be very difficult to get out of bed. In others it is more than likely that you will probably get caught talking to lover on company time. Either way, don’t come to any absolute conclusions about anything because the planets that rule both the source of one’s personal happiness and one’s desire nature are about to shift. In other words you’ll feel differently about everything by days end.
The most unusual influence for this particular day is that both Venus and Mars will change signs within the span of 7&1/2 hours. That is very rare. On this beauteous holiday, I’m not quite up to calculating the stats on just how infrequent it is, but suffice it to say that I can’t recall seeing these ingresses occur on the same day over the span of several decades. But if it did occur, I may have missed it.
Venus enters Aries at 12:18 pm EDT. It’ll remain in that sign until May 16th. Pisces, the sign where Venus has transited since March 26th, is selfless and self-sacrificing. Venus in Aries completely the opposite (a.k.a. self absorbed). It can be very creative as well. This ingress is rarely a graceful transition. Like, you might receive the best foot rub that you’ve received over the course of several lifetimes only to moments later, witness your partner morph into a sports obsessed moron who’d probably be too distracted to take you to the hospital when you’re in the throws of labour.
Mars enters Aquarius at 7:48 pm EDT where it’ll transit until June 16th. Mars in Aquarius varies from waves of incidental and forgivable flakiness to full blown flagrant irresponsibility. The higher vibration of this placement compels one to commit acts of will that benefit the whole. In that regard it can be quite noble. But the enormity of that kind of behaviour and responsibilities implied, more often, are so daunting that it inspires most humans and sub-humans to go. . ."awww screw it". . . thus the flakiness.
Maintaining some degree of independence in relationships will help enormously through the duration of both of these transits. Think. . ."space. . .the final frontier". . .
On Tuesday, the Moon will be void of course in late Capricorn all day. Harmonious aspects between the Moon and Mercury and between the Sun and Uranus in the morning will help in terms of adjustments in relationships from the day before.
I may or may not be blogging on a regular basis during high gardening season in the NE USA, but will definitely come through for major aspects, ingresses, and assorted rants.
