As the Moon moves into Cancer this morning, the energy calms down. Aspects between Juno, Neptune and Venus show us how our own sense of beauty can be all the direction we need. It’s a day for pantsing, writing raw material as inspiration flows, with no forethought involved. Don’t try to tackle that outline or do research today. Write more from the heart. Ideas will arise from nowhere as long as you are there, available, with your fingers poised over the keyboard. All you have to do is get out of your own way today and WRITE!
The Moon moves through Gemini making for a communicative day on many levels. Mercury trine the North Node in Libra puts our thoughts on the future of relationships. It’s an innovative day, with new ideas popping up, but don’t try to get too deep or intimate. This is a day for lots of surface business. It’s a practical day as well. With Saturn trining Mars and Juno, we could see our passions and commitments taking form, especially where it comes to friends and groups. Vesta in Aquarius sextiles Uranus in Aries. It’s the perfect day to plan a writing event!
Today is a balancing act between being honest or being nice, following the crowd or being true to yourself. You may have to use some strong and transformational words today that may step on some toes. You will go back and forth wondering whether you should say something or not. Ultimately, the truth will out. Your only decision will be how gentle your words are, in communicating that difficult truth.
Writers of complex interpersonal, psychological material have the stars on their side right now. First, there is a focus on self-love, and being brutally honest about who supports us and who doesn’t. Second, we have a yod pointing to the North Node in Libra, giving a focus on the future of relationships. Sun conjunct Neptune in Pisces is exposing hidden complexes, dysfunctions, and delusions to the harsh light of day. Big changes can occur between your characters that seem upsetting, but are ultimately healthy. If your writing makes you feel uncomfortable today, you’re probably on the right track.
There’s a grand trine today that spells love, love, love. Especially self-love. Venus/Mars trine Juno in Leo gives romance writers the green light this morning. Add a Juno/Saturn trine, and the focus is on committing to the expression of love in all its forms. Upsets around supper time can be smoothed over with some calm talking and some earthy nurturing. Tonight we find out how dreams can be healing, as long as we don’t analyze them too much. Don’t be too realistic tonight. Just weave lovely visions.
We are capable of expressing great wisdom early today with the Moon trine Pallas in Sagittarius. But later, just focus on committing to hard work and concentration. Mars and Venus are conjunct in Aries giving us a balance between writing beautiful words and forceful statements. The Moon moves into Taurus this evening bringing it all down to earth. By the end of the day, we’ll have done some good, solid work that will also be lyrical and deep.
As Mercury advances through Aquarius, our thoughts are on humanity in general and technology. With a semi-sextile to Neptune, science fiction writers are in their element. Speculation about the environment or futuristic visions of women in society are highlighted. This evening, as the Moon conjuncts forward-looking Uranus and trines Jupiter in Leo, dramatize what the world would look like if nurturing the planet’s ecology became more important than economic profit.
This is a good day to be a pantser, because good writing comes out of the blue, without a lot of rational thought. If you just go ahead and write, without a lot of forethought you may surprise yourself with the quality of your material today. Your ambition is increasing as Mars, Moon and Venus move into forceful Aries, but still, let the imagination lead you where it wants to go. A grand trine just before midnight marries desire, fun, and hard work. You won’t know where one ends and the other begins. The perfect writing state!
