When the moon is in Aries, the situation is direct, intense, impatient, generous, self-directed and unabashedly honest. We come alive with an attitude under the Aries moonlight. This energy is all about boldly going where we haven’t dared to tread before. But while the moon is pulling us to a lively end; it’s energies are square Saturn “The Great Task Master” who is (at home and retrograde in Capricorn) urging us to pause and review the status of our goals and what we’ve accomplished so far.
This will leave some of us really feeling the push/pull of the Duty vs Desire paradigm. Should we go out and play? Or should we buckle down, get serious and get back to work?
Well today the answer is likely to be neither. The Sun in Cancer trines with Jupiter; who is retrograde in Scorpio, and is opening us up to ourselves to do some digging around what we really believe about ourselves, where we come from, and how our family has help to shape what we know as our truth.
The mood is morose – as we battle with ourselves on what to say today, if we say anything at all. Mercury is trine the fiery Aries Moon helping us to think fast but opposed the ruler of Aries; the warlord Mars who is retrograde in Aquarius, so we may not speak our thoughts aloud after all for fear of offending others.
No matter, the real opportunity today is the chance to question your strongly held beliefs with childlike wonder, sift through them with the discerning eye of the wise elder and choose beliefs that align with your soul’s purpose like the divine being you are.
