Thursday sees the Moon flow through Pisces, though the afternoon’s trine with Mars in Cancer may boil the otherwise lazy current. Though irritations and anxieties may emerge, they do so in order to be washed away. After sunset, the Moon moves on to a beautiful, mutually received sextile with luxurious Venus in Taurus. This configuration, in particular, provides the basis for a pleasurable reprieve from the seriousness of the ongoing aspects with Saturn.
Meanwhile, Neptune stations retrograde. The blue planet’s annual retrograde phase asks us to become more critical of the stories we’ve been telling ourselves and the dreams we’ve been enacting. Though it may pop some bubbles, Neptune’s retrograde phase is not an assault on fantasy, it is a harvest thereof — a sorting of the wheat from the chaffe. Neptune’s retrograde phase will last until November 22nd.
