The Stars Today: Moon Square Saturn

"full moon in libra"

I keep trying to write about The Stars Today and I keep stopping myself. I type a bit about Moon square Saturn or the Yod between Saturn, Venus, and the Moon, and then I delete it.

Maybe there’s a different story I’m supposed to tell.

***

I just got off the phone with someone who told me an “I love you” story and it reminded me of my own “I love you” story. How when I was a kid I had to instigate the saying of “I love you” with my Mom. Told her I wanted us to say it to each other every time we got off the phone or when we said goodnight. I don’t remember all the details. What I do remember is having the talk with her.

She was a Scorpio with Mercury in Scorpio. The woman did not emote.

Moon and Saturn together is pessimism. My astrology teacher told me once (and I have the trine in my natal) that I thought I was being practical.

I used to be a poet. I have an M.F.A. I assume people still get them. I used to love to write poems in sections and all of a sudden I’ve started to write my blog posts in sections. It feels good. If you  have the time today, look up Wallace Stevens’ famous blackbird poem for an example of a poem in sections.

The Yod is a mysterious configuration to me. An inconjunct plus a sextile (i.e. part of the sextile is making the inconjunct with the other planet, the one not in the sextile). The sextile part is harmonious of course, pleasant, and the inconjunct part is the itch, the adjustment. But there is a kind of zig zagging poetry to this aspect. How to fit two arms in the same sleeve is how I described the inconjunct to someone once. The sextile makes you believe that if you work hard enough, it is possible.

Is it possible?

Today someone told me that they liked my blog because it made them think about their own life, their own story, but in a different way. I have always been an autobiographical writer – when I was a poet, when I was a playwright, and now. I never tell the whole story though.

Moon in Cancer is easily hurt so if you felt a little touchy today, that could have been why. I used to feel that it was ONLY what planets did to our own charts that mattered but now I realize that the sky energy itself is a REAL THING. Although our individual charts do trump the sky energy (in my humble opinion) so I always want you to return to your chart although when I choose dates for people (as I was doing for someone recently) I look at both.

The sky feels mushy to me except for the Sun in Aries. Moon in Cancer, Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, Venus in Taurus… and I feel like Aries doesn’t like being surrounded by all these crazy girls.

***

Another Moon Saturn story: I remember shortly before Yom Kippur asking my mother for forgiveness, which is the tradition. I can’t remember if I am younger or older than in the “I love you” story but what could I possibly have done wrong that forgiveness was needed. That kind of kid.

***

These stories about Moon square Saturn, which is happening in tonight’s sky, keep pointing me towards the same thing — the desire to be close to the Mother and the square to Saturn says NO.

Do you have a story for today’s sky?
