Waning Sextile between the Libra Moon and Sagittarius Sun (10 deg)
Sun in Sagittarius square Mars in Pisces (10 deg)
Mercury Rx in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus Rx in Aries (29 deg)
Venus enters Scorpio
Chiron Rx in Pisces trines the Cancer North Node (27 deg)
A rather full day today with myriad, shifting energies that promise some tension, some harmony and some healing.
The Waning Sextile gives you an opportunity to move into new territory (travel, education or the embrace of a new belief-Sagittarius) in a balanced, harmonious (Libra) way. This is a highly social aspect that implies support from others as you explore new possibilities.
However, note that the Sun does square Mars, so what you’re moving towards will have an edge. There may be some tension between actions and goals but the actions will not be 100% clear (Mars in Pisces can be diffused). As you step into the unknown country, use the tension to motivate you, but move with caution.
This energy will lead to December 7th’s New Moon in Sagittarius (stay tuned for a separate post on this).
Mercury, Venus and Chiron
Mercury Rx’s recent return to Scorpio is marked by a tense inconjunct with Uranus Rx. The hidden, uncomfortable or intimate information that you’re reviewing/researching will involve a jarring truth or reveal. But the disruption will have to be adjusted with deeper information that will need to remain private or unspoken. This is a tricky aspect that will be repeated on December 11th (when Mercury is direct) so you’re only on the first step.
Meanwhile, Venus re-enters Scorpio for the first time since September 9th. Venus back into Scorpio, post-retrograde, indicates that you are ready to complete the journey that began on September 9th- a complete immersion in a relationship, financial or self-esteem issue. Venus Rx pushed you to re-evaluate, but that process is over. Now you move forward with the knowledge you’ve gained (you know what you have and what you deserve).
Note that Mercury Rx is hitting the late degrees of Scorpio and Venus is activating the early degrees, so the full depth of an issue is being mined. Mercury Rx urges you to analyze and put it into words (even if those words are only in your head) while Venus asks you to move ahead with what you really want. In both cases (mind and heart) nothing will do but total honesty and an unblinking look at what lies beneath the surface (this can also refer to your recently discovered reservoirs of power).
Chiron and the North Node encourage you to deal with a wound/vulnerability. Harmony with the North Node means there should be a beneficial way through the discomfort, and it will involve acknowledging vulnerable feelings. But the process should feel natural and relatively painless. Is it time to forgive, move on or stop the sacrifice/self-flagellation? You’re not denying the wound or making it disappear, but you are finding a place (the North Node) where you can feel whole and safe.
