Astrological Musings

Mercury aligned with Neptune in the wee hours of the morning, and for a few hours still our creativity will be heightened and it may be difficult to focus on anything requiring the left side of our brain.  This may be particularly difficult since the Moon has left Gemini now for the emotional sign of Cancer, the sign which it rules.  The Moon is completely at home in Cancer, where emotional security is critical to happiness, and the happiness of others becomes particularly important to our own sense of peace.

This may be at its most intense this morning as the Moon forms a stressful opposition to Pluto and our emotions intensify.  We may find ourselves in a confrontation with a power figure this morning, or need a break to calm the intensity of an emotional storm.  

Mars makes a conjunction to Chiron this evening, culminating at about 7:30 pm EST, a planetary combination which could cause us to be more sensitive than usual, particularly if your chart is being affected by the Aquarius stellium already.  The influence of Mars on Chiron tends to create irritation and hypersensitivity, and the Moon is already more sensitive in Cancer now.  This Mars-y irritation will last for a couple of days as Mars approaches a conjunction to Neptune which takes those inflamed nerves and makes it more difficult to understand how we feel or why.  Neptune can erode the confidence of Mars, and our sense of boundaries may be affected now.  This will require a conscious application of awareness on our parts!
