We have a Moon in impulsive, sparky Aries, so we all want to start moving faster. Fortunately, Mercury in Taurus slows our metal pace and helps us to not jump ahead of ourselves. We are in the dark of the Moon…that place just before the new growth begins. The seeds will begin sprouting tomorrow, so today, give some thought to what you will be planting for a fruitful season.
Mercury and Venus are connecting in a helpful way that supports growth, so the heart and mind are in sync with each other and communications can be sweet. This aspect happens at 0 point of Taurus and Aries, indicating awakenings and fresh beginnings and are on the rise.
The bigger piece today happens this afternoon at 3:09 PM, when the Sun and Pluto square off to form a stepping-stone. Many would say this is a land mine of power issues. I see it as an opportunity to step up to any challenge with strength, that you have garnered from listening to your inner teacher and choosing to be your own authority - fully in charge of transforming your own life.
the rest of the week, The Sun will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square that is still resonating and Eris and Black Moon Lylith will also feature strongly in the mix. So there is potential for issues of power and control, authority and leadership, that will need to be addressed.
The question becomes… who will choose the high road and who will operate from a fear based egoic position that can ignite arrogance, tempers and impatience. Do the best you can to refrain from reactionary choices and instead… get to work on yourself. Look to see where you can shine light on the shadow (we all have one), as this will result in more personal liberation and greater harmony in the long run.
Remember, this is prep work for a strong New Moon tomorrow morning and we want to make the most of it.
