The Sun is square Uranus and sextile Chiron today, suggesting tension related to our will to perform, follow or uphold traditions, and achieve in contrast with our desire to express ourselves as individuals, authentically. The trick is to avoid overemphasizing the self or ego now as we recognize the need for change, growth, and improvement. A somewhat chaotic atmosphere may result, and it’s counterproductive. A better approach would be to identify areas that need to change and seek out a solution that isn’t so dramatic or abrupt that it works against us and our relationships. We should watch for being irresponsible in our rebellions, for example, and guard against temperamental behavior and decision-making. We are more inclined to act on a whim, and routines/plans are disrupted. These energies help to stimulate the adoption of new approaches.
Fortunately, the Sun-Chiron connection increases our desire to learn and grow through our experiences. We also enjoy a Venus-Mars trine in Fire signs, spurring us on and encouraging the pursuit of our desires. We can feel inspired to create something unique.
A Mercury-Pluto alignment is also influencing the day, and we might uncover valuable information or gain insight into a matter that’s important to us. This is a time for finding hidden meanings, although if this goes too far, we may be obsessed, manipulative, or paranoid, or inclined toward battles of words. Increased tension or worry may motivate us to make useful changes, however.
The Moon is void from 8:33 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Uranus), until the Moon enters Cancer at 10:45 PM EST.
