Last Quarter Square Moon in Virgo
December 9th, 2017
18 ° 26' Virgo
This last quarter square Moon in Virgo is trine to Pluto in Capricorn, getting us ready for a critical moment in our transformation and preparing us for the grounding energy that is approaching with lots of the planets soon moving out of fire into earth. This waning moon wants us to root down and cultivate gifts just below the surface, waiting to be harvested and shared.
Mars enters Scorpio today, and will be there until the end of January. With his departure from Libra, Mars is breaking away from the tense aspect to Uranus that we have been feeling for the past couple weeks. This should provide a respite from the polarization between self and other.
Mars is at home in Scorpio and is the co ruler of the sign alongside Pluto. In Scorpio Mars acts as the war general, seeing far beyond the first move with eyes as sharp as an eagles and going in for the kill. There is a decisiveness in Scorpio that is lacking in Libra, where everything needs to be weighed on the scales before acting. Mars in Scorpio is about making advances towards mastery by focusing on whatever it is you would like to absorb into your skillset. It is about joining with powerful forces and ending up metamorphosed as a result. Stronger, faster, better....that kinda vibe. It is a very passionate placement for Mars and it will should give us some extra umph for the month ahead.
Venus in Sagittarius exactly squares Neptune in Pisces. If you have been rocking your rose colored glasses you might wanna switch pairs, I hear Saturn sells reality glasses to those in need of some. While this aspect is fleeting and only lasts a couple days, this can create tensions in our relationships if we have been idealizing a dream person rather than valuing our connections for what they are. Venus in Sagittarius is about honest love, it is about seeing the whole picture and thoroughly enjoying the view. Be true and don't mistake the beauty in front of you for some far off mirage. Keep it real!
Sun in Sagittarius trine the North Node in Leo , making it a great weekend to connect with nature and go on a little adventure to gather inspiration. If you can't get outside, try reading something that sparks your inner muse into action. The North Node in Leo wants us all creating, whether you are an artist or not there are many many ways to do so. With so many of us trapped inside, it is easy to forget that there are many wonders to explore that help us reset and find our path once more.
Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius is trine Uranus, Square Chiron. Mercury will do this, Venus later in the month will make the same aspects, and then finally Mercury will pass this point a third time before joining the crew in Capricorn.
Squares to Chiron rub our sore points and alert us to areas that are in need of patching up. Mercury first squared Chiron in its direct motion on November 23rd and along with it some piercing words could have been exchanged. It is hard not to get defensive when we feel verbally attacked. This time around we have the opportunity to look at why these conversations hurt so badly and why they happened or are happening in the first place. Honest communication doesn't have to be nasty, it is good to practice ways of getting your point across peacefully. Hopefully by the third pass just after the New Year we will all have found ways to express our truths kindly and heal some of the damage done by harsh words. The fiery trine to Uranus in Aries is the likely culprit for these outbursts, especially the first pass which occurred when Mars was still in opposition to the great individuator.
This awesome part of this aspect is that Mercury is relaying all the information that has been gained in Sagittarius from Saturn's passage there to your blossoming self that Uranus is birthing. You will need all of this wisdom to proceed with your awakening; listen and learn.
