Daylight Time descends upon most of the United States during the early morning hours, as the Moon continues its trek through dramatic and glamorous Leo. Sunday will be a high energy day as there are many aspects on the Astrological Calendar, much of which is conflicting and at odds with one another. However, the lesson to learn from this might be the sentence which hangs over the oracle at Delphi in Ancient Greece, “nothing in excess.”
Today the Moon continues to trek through Leo giving way to dramatic feelings filled with great intensity. The Moon in Leo loves to be the center of attention, and you can do this best by being generous and loyal to those around you. Since, the communication planet Mercury moves into Pisces today, this can accentuate the intensity of the Moon and give way to feelings of heightened intuition and receptivity to others around us. It all just seems so wonderful and perfect, doesn’t it?
Ok, now on with reality. Just as Mercury and the Moon do the tango of other worldly visions and romantic reception, The God of War Mars will conjoin with Neptune in social Aquarius. This is a very frustrating aspect, because Mars tends to go into “wimp” mode when he confronts the giant Fish God. In traditional Astrology, Mars in Aquarius is considered “peregrine”, and often feels misplaced in the sign. You may feel a bit lethargic and out of balance under this energy. One of the best ways to handle this energy is to take time to rest today, and make sure you avoid any activity of competition as Mars/Neptune can feel quite ineffectual. This aspect is rather idealistic, so make sure to honor your inner fight and keep your feet on the ground.
Finally, as if Mars and Neptune were not enough frustrating energy for one day, the Sun will oppose Saturn around 3:53 PM EST. Under this aspect, we may feel a lack of confidence, at odds with authority and downright cranky. The planet of restriction prevents the Sun from shining bright. This often leads to power struggles between the two planets. Since the aspect is an opposition, the likeliest “path” of expression is through our relationships. To get through the evening hours avoid confrontations, reactions, and attempt to be compassionate of the needs of others.
