Sunday begins with Mars’ square to the nodal axis, putting him at odds with both the Head and the Tail of the dragon. The Nodes push and pull on the red planet, making it difficult to know what’s worth fighting for.
Meanwhile, the Moon in Pisces re-activates the square between Venus and Saturn, pointing again toward what necessities weigh on the heart, and how we might shoulder those burdens as lightly as possible. The Moon and Venus aren’t the only planets talking to Saturn. Retrograde Mercury in Aries completes a trine with the slow planet today, questioning the very obligations which Venus is being subjected to.
Around sunset, the Moon moves from oceanic Pisces to terrestrial Aries. That shift, and Luna’s evening sextile with Mars in Gemini, give the evening a feisty boost.
