Astrology for Today: Verbal Fireworks!

The Sun, Moon and Venus in Cancer huddle together in tension aspect to Jupiter in Capricorn. Jupiter in Capricorn calls us to pay attention in a major way to our duties and responsibilities, and here the Cancer gang just wants to have fun, by virtue of a nice trine to Uranus in Pisces that just wants to zone out and meet up from friends on the astral plane. Resistance to the call to duty is likely to result in a display of verbal fireworks as we are told what it is we should be doing, and we better get right on it! Again, no one is thinking quite clearly here, and communications are muddled if emphatic. For those that are so inclined, this is an excellent day to plot escape plans as Mars trines Pluto. The earth signs benefit especially by this energy, but Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn need to be wary of the tendency to use bazookas instead of of pop guns to make their point.

Are you experiencing any verbal fireworks today?

Our Astrological Assignment Today

Today’s moon in the earth sign Taurus is in easy energetic connection with the planet of responsibility, Saturn, and the planet of transformation, Pluto. This is your typical lazy Sunday morning, reading the paper and eating a late brunch. But the Universe doesn’t give us rest days easy. The reason is that our assignment today is to look within ourselves to see what we can give. This Taurus moon is the balsamic phase, when the driving impulse is to change a personal desire to something that will benefit the group to which you belong, whether it be family, church, work or community in general. You might want to keep those percolating ideas to yourself, since the retrograde Mercury in challenge aspect to Uranus, will only bring a round of contentious, and undeserved criticism. Enjoy your Sunday!
