The day begins with the Moon in Sagittarius’ square to Venus in Virgo. The sharp pleasures of perfection entice while Venus is in Virgo, though the blunt glory of good-enough may have to do under this configuration. The Venus-Pluto trine today may goad on those prone to obsess about getting it just right, but is nonetheless mellowed by the jovial Sag Moon’s uplifting air. Venus is the Moon’s one and only aspect today, though several other planets make the geometry with each other.
The Sun in Virgo trines Saturn in Capricorn, providing a fastidious and responsible light. It warms, but does not excite. Meanwhile, Mercury opposes Neptune. Here Neptune tests Mercury in Virgo’s analytic prowess with a dose of intoxicants. Spots of absent-mindedness and dullness dot the day, as if Mercury were retrograde for isolated patches of 15 minutes at a time.
Late-late night, the Moon arrives in Capricorn, giving the pre-dawn hours a down-to-earth, heavy atmosphere which promises to start tomorrow off on a pragmatic note.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Jupiter’s day hosts the Moon’s conjunction with the big planet in Sagittarius, which amplifies confidence and restores big visions. Yet there are plenty of small details to account for. Precise Mercury in Virgo is the hinge between obstacle and excellence today. The agile planet makes perfect aspects to both leaden Saturn and expansive Jupiter today. The road to victory lies before us, but it is not without blockages and bumps. The issues that arise will tend to be of a technical nature, so remember to bring your tool kit. Though it has some wrinkles, it is nonetheless a very well-omened day.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Wednesday is empty of new planetary drama, which is likely for the best, as Tuesday served a heaping portion, and time to digest and assimilate is always helpful. The Moon spends the majority of the void of course, with no new reality to nurture into being. Emotions compost slowly below while at the surface a score of little details need attending to. Night brings the Moon’s advantageous ingress into Sagittarius, leading into a pair of more elevated days.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Today Mercury conjoins both Mars and the Sun, with all three occupying the same degree of the zodiac for much of the day. Here the cleverness and technical know-how of Mercury are welded together with the fierce, industrious spirit of Mars by the perfect heat of the Sun. It adds the contemplative intellectual clarity of the Sun-Mercury cazimi to the Sun-Mars conjunction’s hot spotlight on matters of conflict, anger, power, and strategy. It is a rare combination, and will seed matters whose fruit we will only come to know later.
On the level of daily experience, this triple configuration is likely to act as a strong and aggressive stimulant, sharpening thoughts and tongues. It is likely to be useful to for solitary mental labor, but contrary to activities that require consensus and patience.
Venus’ opposition with Neptune today may smooth some of these rough edges, but only enough to slightly dull the razor-sharp tenor otherwise implied.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Today Venus squares Jupiter. This, in contrast to yesterday’s Venus-Saturn aspect, is buoyant and extravagant. Though largely benefic, it does push towards the excessive. This tone dominates the day while the Moon in Libra lasts. Come late afternoon, though, Luna leaves Libra behind for brooding Scorpio. After this point, things turn toward Mars’ recent conjunction with the Sun. Insights about power, conflict, and anger attempt to unpack themselves during the night hours, catalyzed by the Moon’s opposition with Uranus.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
