Retrograde Mercury in Pisces spends the day in a sextile with Mars in Taurus, which turns the mind toward concrete tasks and sharpens the tongue a bit. Turn your thoughts to the items on your to-do list which have lingered overly long.
Night spotlights the pending square between Venus and Mars. There is both fun and friction there, notes of both harmony and strife. It is a passionate configuration, but not necessarily a peaceable one.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The first half of Saturday features a trine between the Sun in oceanic Pisces and the Moon in sensitive Cancer, giving it an introverted, emotional, and imaginative quality.
Around sundown, the Moon leaves Cancer behind for bright Leo, giving the evening a warmer, more outgoing vibe. Luna makes a square with Uranus in Taurus during the evening, which may change up plans and moods without much warning. Be ready to make an adjustment.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Cancer Moon spends the daylight drifting toward a trine with Neptune in Pisces, giving the day a flowing, day-dreamy quality. Those fantasies are likely to be of an optimistic sort, due to Mercury’s configuration with best-case-scenario Jupiter.
After the Sun goes down, the tone changes significantly. The Moon spends the night in a hard configuration with Saturn, Pluto and Mars, illuminating a variety of difficulties. It’s not a good set-up for social gatherings or romantic dinners.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The first portion of the day sees the Moon walk the late degrees of Gemini, giving an active but somewhat scattered quality. The Moon then enters Cancer, during the latter half of the daylight. This ingress turns the day in a emotional, introverted direction. A quick sextile with Uranus during the afternoon may spark some insight, and the evening’s Sun-Mercury conjunction is certain to.
This conjunction marks the mid-point of Mercury’s retrograde motion, and is more specifically called the “inferior” conjunction, because it sees Mercury between the Sun and the Earth. These inferior conjunctions are the heart of every Mercury retrograde. The other type, the “superior” conjunction, see Mercury on the far side of the Sun from the Earth. The line-up of the Sun, Mercury and Earth provides a window of clarity and calm in the midst of the retrograde. It is a perfect moment to sit quietly, and think through matters.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Wednesday begins with the Moon in Gemini’s trine with Venus in Aquarius, starting the day off on a pleasant note. Today actually has several charming features. The Sun in Jupiter-ruled Pisces spends the entirety of the day perfecting an aspect to Jupiter, magnifying the supportive, optimistic quality of the big planet. The combination of the Sun and Moon with both benefic is quite fortunate, in a general way.
These pairings are not all that occurs, though. Mars in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn complete a trine today. This harmony between the malefics adds a hard edge to the day— one you can use to cut through a number of tasks.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
