Adding a few more lines to the unfolding story, Venus in Leo sextile Mercury in Libra form a trine and an opposition to Juno Rx in Aries. We may want to have a good time, enjoy ourselves as well as others’ company. In this light atmosphere, interchanges could flow, provide satisfaction and fun, while niceness could make the rounds, allowing all parties to feel appreciated or even admired. Naturally, everybody may desire for a moment to be at the center of the attention, to tell their personal story and to revel in the beauty of the situation. It would be easy to overestimate our self-importance in such a setting. Therefore, less is more – if we don’t want to come across as overbearing or conceited, especially with the Sun in Virgo in sesqui-quadrate to Eris Rx in Aries and the Moon’s ingress into Capricorn at 10:44 am EDT. Then, our mood could really sink and when the Moon will conjunct Pluto Rx in Capricorn around noon EDT it could reach such a low that we could react from a depressed or frustrated state. At the least, we will be down-to-earth from our flight of fancy and thus the atmosphere could become from now on a bit heavy and we more serious and reserved. However, we could use the energy to accomplish whatever hasn’t been done yet on our list. In the late afternoon, the Capricorn Moon will first oppose Mars in Cancer and then square Mercury in Libra, which cautions us toward picking a fight or other ways of overreacting. Words could hurt or cause damage in some other way if we can’t control what comes out of our mouth. We may have to side-step the problem to be able to keep the peace, but in the end this may have been worth the trouble when the Moon will quincunx Venus in Leo and later on semi-square Jupiter Rx in Aquarius, indicating a shift toward Self-appreciation, followed by a high time.
On Sunday,Vesta in Leo will form a quincunx to Pluto Rx in Capricorn, while Mars in Cancer will be perfecting his square to Juno Rx in Aries. This adjustment will test our intentions in regard to behavioral patterns underlying our principle of relating and thus the power of our compulsions or lower impulses. A semi-square between the Moon in Capricorn and Neptune Rx in Aquarius could manifest as an interruption from our sleep that could have us starting the day with a depleted energy level, which could be felt particularly strong after 9:00 am EDT when the Moon will move into a square to Ceres in Libra and we may struggle to maintain some form of harmony – inner as well as outer. Consequently, good relations may undergo strain. Thus, it would be best to rest our case and to try to reconcile instead. In the afternoon will the Moon in Capricorn engage in a trine to Pallas in Virgo, which can be taken as a signal that our strategy was successful. Negotiations may proceed smoothly from there on.
Saturday was for the most part a really down-to-earth-day. Even the weather was ‘depressing’ – only in the afternoon peeked the Sun through the heavy clouds. However, it was too cold for the season with 16 degrees Celsius. But this was just the right set up to get my ‘work’ done. In the evening, we sat together and played a few games. Thus, we had some fun time at last. Sunday was all about packing my bags, ‘cleaning up behind me’ and preparing for the way home. J came with the new car and we took Mom for a ride through the surroundings. Rain showered down on us occasionally and made me realize that fall is just around the corner. Still, I hope to see a bit of the Indian Summer, which is the most beautiful time of the year here – at least for me.
