The New Moon in Scorpio doth approacheth!
Moon is still Gemini as I type this but I always get excited by the New and Full Moons! As for eclipses? Well, just keep ’em off of my sensitive points, okay? 😉
I’ve already talked a wee bit about aspects to the New Moon in previous posts but I’m still thinking about it now….
How Pluto in Capricorn will sextile the Sun and Moon. This is like a power surge but a gentle one. As gentle as Pluto can be 😉 Pluto feeding Sun and Moon, mainlining them. We’re talking fixed water and cardinal earth. Commitment (Scorpio) + Movement (Cardinal/dynamic) = getting things done. With sextiles you have to work and Capricorn doesn’t mind that at all. This aspect tells me, “The kingdom will be yours” if you just… advertise!
Mercury and Venus will be conjunct for the New Moon. This would signify someone charming in almost any sign: beautiful language, poetic mind, an artist of some kind, but in Scorpio? The mood is waaaay darker. Conjunctions act as one and Venus is still Venus but a Venus touched by the God of Death (Pluto rules Scorpio) makes for a more serious party than Mercury Venus may be used to. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Scorpio is that well-spoken Goth kid who likely has Pluto conjunct as well 😉
Now Mars in Leo will square this Mercury and Venus. Mars in Leo is playful and robust and in the sky this square doesn’t alarm me at all. It’s the kind of thing I’d like to sit back and watch 🙂 Mars square Venus runs hot and cold though: you may flip your allegiance! At one moment committed to the guy and the next moment committed to the girl and what kind of commitment is that when you keep changing face? But as a friend-astrologer told me yesterday about Mars square Venus: it may be hot and cold but when it’s hot? It’s HOT.
Mars square Mercury of course can indicate squabbles and with Leo involved and Scorpio involved there’s bound to be someone’s ego at stake! Don’t step on any toes. Don’t say anything you can’t take back!
The Sun and Moon opposing transiting Jupiter show the balancing act of the day. I think here especially you should look in your chart for this opposition because here is where you may go to extremes. Or a serious stalemate! And it’s a serious (Scorpio) opposition: your expansion (Jupiter) vs your intimacy (Scorpio). How free do you need to be? Moon Jupiter is usually a feel-good aspect but I think we’re up to something a bit deeper here. Freedom vs Closeness. The Possessive Lover vs the Mountain Man (lol). Which one are you? Both at different times? Both at the same tim? Sun and Jupiter in opposition is the ego expanding. These folks think they can accomplish anything. Can they? Do they? It depends 😉
The Sun and Moon inconjunting Uranus repeats some of these themes: the safety of ego (Sun) and the safety of home (Moon) not quit fitting you anymore. You want to break free. An adjustment is needed to satisfy all of you (and your partner, if you have one). I would let this one pass actually. Meaning, don’t take the bait. Feel the energy. Go electric for a while but return to yourself. Don’t let Uranus carry you away except to new levels, new realms of creativity and intuition.
Saturn will be trining Neptune. He’s applying though, not there yet. This is one to watch because this aspect is about building and dissolving simultaneously (sandcastles, anyone?). Structure and the absence of structure. Rules + imagination. So I would keep this aspect in mind in all your intentions. How you need both. How you need the liquid (Neptune) and the container (Saturn). That you need the words for the poem and you need the form for the poem. You need to create (Neptune) and you need to take breaks (Saturn=stop) from creating. Like in the creation story: God made the world, day by day, but he still went to sleep at night 😉
