Venus is trine Saturn at 8:41am PST/ 11:41am EST
The weekend begins with a stabilizing and ultimately helpful earth trine between Venus in organized Virgo, and Saturn in determined Capricorn. Trines between Venus and Saturn help ground us in our love commitments and deepen our promises. Venus is a beneficial planet that brings healing, connection, and cohesion to any area of life that she touches, so this earth trine with Saturn helps bring out the best that the planet of hard lessons has to offer this year.
Even though Saturn, at home in resolute Capricorn, is having a powerfully restrictive effect on our current experiences, it may be that some of the hardships we have endured are ultimately making us stronger and more resourceful for the long term. This connection may coincide with some well-earned rewards for our patience and perseverance during these difficult times. Today’s Venus/Saturn trine may help us feel secure enough to turn a romance into a vow or may encourage us to invest our resources into a cautiously optimistic new venture. If we are considering these options, it’s best to take action before the moon void of course begins in the afternoon.
The moon is sextile Mars Rx at 2:54Ppm PST/ 5:54pm EST and moon void of course begins
The day is cosmically quiet, until the afternoon sextile aspect between the moon in objective Aquarius, and Mars in reactive Aries. The moon void of course begins now, making this a good time to shift to tying up loose ends and general maintenance on projects that have already been set in motion until tomorrow afternoon.
The waxing moon is gaining energy, and through the sextile connection, it is merging with Mars’ potent and somewhat volatile forces. This aspect is sure to be mentally and physically stimulating. Many of us may experience flashes of insight and feel strong urges to take action. Since the moon has gone void, we can channel this energy into brainstorming and coming up with new, creative ideas that we can begin tomorrow. According to our own physical needs, we can also use this extra energy and stimulation to get out and exercise.
