Will it be easy to move forward with self-reliance and tenacity while the Moon is void in fiery Aries until 11:16PM PDT? You will only find out by your experience throughout most of the hours today as four challenging alignments try to rock the boat in love and money matters as well as on the frontiers of higher learning. These four discordant aspects are a Venus-Uranus parallel (12:45AM PDT), an off-kilter, 150-degree link from the Sun to Uranus (4:22AM PDT), a sharp opposition between Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Gemini (5:56AM PDT) as well as another, off-kilter, 150-degree tie from Venus to Neptune (2:12PM PDT). To move through four tricky sky patterns, within less than 14 hours, and for you to still be smelling like a rose is no easy task. Just a Mars-Jupiter polarity by itself is enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck as though you encountered a ghost or something completely unbelievable from the standpoint of regular, daily reality. Therefore, it is wise to slow your pace across the board, and to take advantage of Venus entering one of its home signs (Libra) at 6:05AM PDT — helping you smooth over differences with dear ones and improve the quality of primary partnerships. An inspirational, 72-degree tie from Venus to Juno (7:32AM PDT) won’t neutralize all the challenging alignments, but it is definitely a nurturing connection that can bring you closer to a significant other. The Moon finally leaves void status in Aries by entering earthy Taurus (11:16PM PDT) and, just three minutes later at 11:19PM PDT, Mercury enters Sagittarius. Get ready for tomorrow’s powerful Full Moon.
