We begin the day with the playful Leo moon making a trine to serious Saturn in Sagittarius, perfecting at 7:42 AM. A great way to use this aspect is to get “serious” about your “play”. Like we all do need to make sure we are balanced and having fun sometimes is a part of being balanced. If we allow ourselves to relax it leads to a feeling of greater emotional support, which ultimately is what moon-Saturn aspects are all about.
Mars in Cancer meet Mars in Scorpio in a trine aspect today. This peaks at 4:17 PM but we should feel this all day long. When Mars and Venus meet in harmony you can expect some nice chemistry happening in your personal life, too! If you are attached to a relationship then try to plan to spend some time together today, time as lovers! If you are single go ahead and wink at the next good looking person your see today, and keep it up all day! The chemistry is there, if you let yourself feel it! Venus-Mars isn't only about sexual relationships though, what it is really about is allowing yourself to indulge in your senses, Whether you find sensuality between the sheets or if you find it at your local art fair where you can appreciate the colors and diversity of art, or if you find it in your kitchen where the smells and tastes can be absolutely divine, it is important to let yourself do something sensual today!
At 11:24 PM the sun and Mercury conjoin in the midpoint of the Mercury-sun cycle. You can think of the sun as the “king”, and Mercury as the “jester” who does flips and circles around the sovereign entertaining the king with antics. The king may not always show it but he truly does value to counsel of Mercury, even if Mercury likes to play jokes to get his point across. With this aspect our minds should be active and relevant today. That means no day-dreaming and instead remaining focused on the issues at hand, even if we may try to treat them as a joke. Since this occurs in Cancer it may not be as light as in other signs but it still is a meeting of two important planets which offers clarity of thought and lightness of spirit.
The gemstone to use today is ruby which is considered a romantic, sexy stone, to match the Venus-Mars aspect today.
The essential oil to use today is basil which aids us in focusing so we may get our work done early and perhaps go rendezvous with someone special!
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
