If you were anticipating a fairly straight-forward and easy-to-handle solar entry into Sagittarius (1:03am) on the same day as a powerful full moon (energizing 1 degree of Sagittarius and Gemini at 9:40pm), think again. The cosmos is ratcheting-up all kinds of high jinks as Mercury is the perpetrator of three stressful aspects – 45-degrees to Venus at 5:13am, parallel to Saturn at 8:48am, and 45-degrees to Vesta at 9:54am. An 18 hour void lunar twilight zone in Taurus starting at 2:00am, leading to the arrival of Gemini moon at 8:12pm, doesn’t create a sense of calm. Plus, the monthly lunar union with peace-and-harmony advocate Juno (10:34am) that can often favorably support key relationships may get lost in the shuffle as Mars and Pluto toss in a monkey-wrench via their ornery, 45-degree match-up (5:40pm). Nevertheless, individual and group meditations are recommended when the full moon reaches its crescendo (9:40pm). Send out your healing prayers and thoughts to Mother Earth and beleaguered humankind. Start preparing for the next major celestial occurrence — Neptune shifting from reverse to direct in Pisces coming up this Saturday.
