The dark-of-the-moon vibrations — mentioned in yesterday’s calendar entry — are now even stronger. The over-arching theme throughout today is the need to finish recent enterprises on a high note without leaping headlong into new, bold plans. The void Moon in Leo that started yesterday morning ends at 3:45AM when the lunar orb enters earthy, meticulous Virgo. Clean-up campaigns, health and nutritional concerns, weeding the garden, perfecting talents and skills, and pursuing repair work are all in the spotlight each month when the Moon transits the sixth sign of the zodiac. However, psychic storm warnings are posted across the board today as often belligerent Mars forms a discordant contra-parallel with underworld-ruling Pluto (6:41AM), Mercury makes a frictional, 45-degree tie with Saturn (2:43PM), Mercury parallels its higher-guardian planet Uranus (4:39PM), and Mars opposes Juno (8:53PM). Rocking any boats can lead to instant karma as well as interpersonal backlashes. Say no to egocentric arm-twisting maneuvers where you are playing a manipulative role out of character with who you know yourself to be on higher levels of reality. Being more of a hermit and reading, writing and delving into research projects may be an antidote to some of today’s celestial shenanigans.
