With the Moon entering Virgo today [Thursday], we have a busy ‘end of the work week’ coming up. Use the time to get your ducks in a row.
Also on Thursday, Pluto in Capricorn sextiles Pallas in Scorpio as Mercury opposes the Great Attractor. Expect to have important conversations today surrounding business, intimate relationships and financial situations.
If we are willing to go deep, we can learn priceless information that shows us a new way forward. Pallas represents, at best, negotiating skills; at worst, she can be defensive. With Pallas in Scorpio sextile Pluto (ruler of Scorpio), look at what ideas and ideals you need to let go of in order to allow something new to take root.
Also, Venus in Leo squares Pallas today, suggesting that when it comes to love, sex or money, look at your own defensiveness, ego or attachments that get in the way of your desires. There is a golden truth that can be learned if we are willing to put aside the ego and seek pure essence. This is true for financial as well as emotional situations.
With the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in conjunction to Pluto, all aspects to Pluto are currently pointing to past structures and commitments and to the ‘past’ itself that needs to be transformed. With Pluto, what is certain is change. If we make these changes consciously, it won’t feel like being asked to jump off a cliff one fine morning.
Now, as the Sun makes its way through its last days in Gemini, it approaches a square to Saturn and trine to Neptune that will become exact over the weekend on Saturday, June 19, 2010.
Late Friday, just before midnight in the US and early Saturday in UK and Australia, the Virgo Moon squares the Gemini Sun, marking the First Quarter phase and bringing us to the half way point toward the Full Moon. Shortly after this, the Moon enters Libra just as the Sun’s aspects to Saturn and Neptune culminate.
No doubt we are already feeling this energy. Avoid being too analytical, critical or judgmental of yourself or others at this time. It may feel like there is a difficult choice to make or a difficult conversation that needs to happen.
But the trine to Neptune should bring enough energy to lift our spirits in spite of any “heavy lifting” that needs to be done.
With the Moon in Libra at this time, it should be easier to relate, so don’t be too harsh on yourself or others or put up barriers where you seek understanding and openness.
As we head closer to the Eclipses and to the Solstice on June 21, 2010 we can be sure we are coming up on major life changes that will shape the future. As long as we make choices in awareness, we can shape our destiny into not only something we can live with, but something that thrives.
