In contrast to yesterday’s weighty arrangement, Thursday contains a fast, feisty and fun configuration. The quick-witted Moon in Gemini spends the day conjoined Venus and in a sextile with Mars in Aries. Mars provides the feisty, Venus provides the fun. Though the Moon is waned well into its last quarter and losing some of its silver vigor, the line-up with Mars and Venus will provide the missing pep.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

An interesting configuration takes shape in Wednesday’s skies. The Moon in Taurus mediates between the Sun in Cancer’s ongoing opposition to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn. The theme here is the structural problems of the present, and the potential fixes for them. It is worth noting that in Capricorn, both Saturn and Pluto point to structural issues, but of widely varying timescales and depth. Pluto hasn’t been to these degrees in over 200 years, while Saturn is making an every 30-year inspection. Though the decade and century deep problems currently coincide, they are worth separating, as the useful adaptations or solutions to each likely require different strategies.
Though these hard, architectural issues dominate the day, come late night the Moon escapes into fast and friendly Gemini, pushing on to lighter, quicker topics.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Tuesday begins with the Moon’s conjunction to electric Uranus, whose charge might remainHoroscopes & Ongoing Influences
latent or may arc surprisingly, giving the morning a shock. As the day of Mars, there is strong
ambient fire throughout Tuesday, but whatever Uranus-inspired revelations or disruptions
occur during the first half of the day are likely to be slowed and pacified during the second, due
to the peaceable Taurus Moon’s sextile with soothing Neptune.

Monday begins with the Moon in Aries held back by a square to stern Saturn in Capricorn, loading the morning with excess weight. By mid-day, though, the Moon escapes into Taurus. Though not speedy, the bovine sign gives things a steady, productive pace.
The Sun in Cancer sits exactly opposite Jupiter in Capricorn today, marking the brightest portion of the big planet’s yearly cycle. Here the Sun’s rays illuminate what potential for growth and improvement there is in this hard year. As discussed in “Jupiter in Capricorn: Dark Wings and Magic Rings,” the right strategies will tend to fall into the categories of fortification, trash-pile treasure finding, and the inversion of negatives into positives. Over the next week, the Sun will move from opposition with Jupiter on to Pluto and finally Saturn, in effect treating us to a very sobering half-time show.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Sun in Cancer completes a trine to Neptune in Pisces today. This is a pleasing and mellow and connection, as Neptune reflects the Sun’s light, but in a diffuse way which edits out some of the hard edges. There is connection and flow here, but also excitement and possibly some impatience, courtesy of the perhaps-too-peppy Moon in Aries.
Evening brings the Moon into configuration with paired Jupiter and Pluto. The mood points to potential structural solutions to deep issues. Though constructive in orientation, there is nothing quick about these remodels, which may disappoint the “do it now” orientation of the Moon in Aries.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
