Planetary Round-Up: The Stars Today!

"mercury retrograde in leo"
Saying Goodbye to Leo Season

My favorite part of the day is the morning. Nothing’s had the chance to go wrong yet 😉 Although I do often wake up worried, or with the residue from bad dreams. But once I get up and make my coffee, do my putter, which usually includes washing last night’s dishes, cleaning the cat box, getting the trash together, I’m fine. Yeah, that’s my Virgo Moon 🙂 I enjoy preparing the trash.

Moving the body relaxes my mind, moving from room to room and back again, there’s always something to throw away, an empty bottle of Advil, a pricetag… and always something to put back in place: a hairclip… and always something to put in a new place or to take out: my friend’s new full length play that I promised I’d read. Things. Order. Dust. Too much dust.

Details. I am really going to love Virgo Season because of the details. Morning is also the time when my stomach organizes itself. But I’ll spare you those details. Virgo and Cancer (my Moon and Sun) both rule this part of the body.

The cats also know that morning is the time to start moving. They matched their energy to mine years ago. Of course they will nap anytime, but they stay still at night, except for when 4am rolls around, that’s Friskies time.

But, MoonPluto, what about the stars today? Well, this morning we had some groovy aspects to the Moon. Our Taurus Moon conjuncted  Jupiter and sextiled Mars: both good for mood and energy. I always talk about those sweet Moon in Taurus eyes. When a Moon in Taurus tells you, shows you, that they care? Believe it.

Our Sun and Venus stand at the ledge of Leo, looking down! Venus makes the jump to Virgo tomorrow in the evening, NYC time, and the Sun does the same next week, Tuesday, so enjoy the Leo rays while they last. Fall is approaching in slow, steady steps. We survived the summer, didn’t we? We did. (I fucking hate summer. Every day after my birthday is a curse 😉

Neptune in Aquarius opposes Sun and Venus in Leo, which can feel dreamy with a side of confusion. It’s okay to take an extra nap. It’s advised. Dream instead of decide. Wait for Virgo time before deciding.

Mercury still Rx in Leo, but stations direct in the evening on Friday and will travel over sensitive degrees. The forward motion, however, will be a relief to many. The end days of the retrograde period can be wobbly. Doublecheck your travel plans.

Saturn is now at 14 degrees Libra! And Mars is applying in square. I’ve already been talking about this on the blog. Not much more to say about it now except that the frustration is temporary and honestly, haven’t you already been through it this summer? Take this stressful square in stride. Sensitive Mars will cheer up in Leo, although we have to wait a bit. For the time being? Find the honey in the square. Yes, even in a Mars Saturn square. Check your chart. What good natal aspects does your Mars (or Saturn) take? Saturn forces us to be patient. Hey, I have trouble with patience too. But we have nooooo choice. Return to the aspect of Sun Venus opposition Neptune. You can dream now. No guilt.

I’ll stop here and ask you how you’re doing, how you’re feeling. Are the stars today making interesting aspects in your own chart? What? You don’t remember? Well then! Get your donut and your coffee, sit down at the table or at your desk or on the porch swing ahhh doesn’t that feel good? Or maybe you’re at work. Or it’s late at night, before bed. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, look up. Someone smiles down at you 🙂
