MOON ENTERS GEMINI AT 12:21am PST/ 1:21am MST/ 2:21am CST/ 3:21am EST until Monday.
Pluto stations and turns retrograde today and will be retrograde until October 4th. This shift of direction tends to bring about some initial confusion, heaviness, and magnification of problems. Pluto’s retrograde cycle itself, however, is an excellent period for research and gaining new insight into our self-destructive tendencies, needs for control, and search for the truth by looking within. Outward pressures may ease somewhat during this period. Over the coming months, we may be reassessing how we use our power.
A Venus-Saturn minor square suggests some emotional reservations today. We can be a little more guarded with our feelings or worried about our money under this influence. We might see the less flattering side of people or relationships. Small obstacles or hurdles require patience.
As the day advances, a Mercury-Jupiter square comes into influence–it perfects shortly into the day tomorrow. We can feel rushed to make a decision when it may be better to wait. Our ideas are big, but we may jump to conclusions or speak on a matter too soon. There is a tendency to overstate, say too much, exaggerate, or latch onto wild ideas. However, if we can use this energy to stretch our minds to entertain new ideas and to wait on putting these ideas into action, this can be a helpful influence.
The Sun and Uranus are heading into alignment, exact tomorrow morning, and we’re changing the ways we view and use money and personal possessions. Our values are evolving, and the energies of today and tomorrow tend to spotlight this theme. We’re also inclined to break the rules or go against tradition and expectations.
