The dark-of-the-moon or Balsamic Phase of the Sun-Moon energy-field starts coming into play today and tomorrow as the next New Moon occurs on Thursday morning. When the Moon enters its extreme waning phase, physical vitality can decrease and there is a collective vibration that tunes people into completing ventures and enterprises that started around four weeks ago. Even though confusing, chaotic vibrations were more of the rule rather than the exception last night — due to Mars moving 150-degrees to Neptune — there is some improvement across the board this morning as the Moon in Leo approaches a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Venus in Libra (10:53AM). During the few hours just before this alignment becomes precise, you can soar like an eagle in the fine and graphic arts, on the social horizon or in romance. However, once the Moon and Venus consecrate their 60-degree connection at 10:53AM, the Moon enters a void twilight zone that lasts for 16+ hours until 3:45AM tomorrow. Despite the presence of the void Moon and the unsettled conditions that often result, the annual Sun-Chiron polarity takes place from Virgo to Pisces (12:15PM).
