✨Aspecting the Cosmos: Sept 01, 2023:
💫Each day planetary energy aspects into a story. Like many stories, there is more to be had if you know how to read between the lines. In the history of science, the universe is compared to a clock. It continues ticking as a perfect machine, its gears governed by the laws of physics, making every aspect of the machine predictable
To understand how to use the timing of this energy advantageously, one must first understand how it affects them on a personal level. In order to do that, we must become intimate with the energy available to us—and how to personally harness its power. An energy journal is priceless.
💫Today's story begins just after midnight EDT, evening for those behind us, and morning/afternoon for those ahead. An opposition will occur between the Moon in Pisces and Pallas in Virgo
, requiring compromise in order to reconcile two polarities. The Moon in Pisces represents emotion and intuition amid the spiritual or escapist urge: We compromise and grow, or we can hide our heads in the sand hoping it goes away ( but it never leaves and always returns stronger ).
Pallas Athene is the Goddess of Wisdom and Warcraft. Always the defender but never the aggressor. Her placement in Virgo is grounded and steadfast, embodying the wisdom born of reason and superior calculation. She wins conflict through strategic defensive maneuvers, not going forth to conquer and slay.
So how are these two opposites?
The Moon in Pisces is emotionally intuitive while Pallas in Virgo is reasonably attuned. Between the heart of emotion and the mind of reason lies the solution: Balance. Ground our emotional state in reason and reason will empathize with the effort.
💫Early AM the Pisces Moon conjunct Neptune Rx in Pisces and the 8th House
. A conjunction is the most powerful aspect and heralds' emphasis on the planets and houses they occupy. Collectively the 8th house is the natural home of Scorpio, ruled by Pluto. It highlights regeneration, death, taxes, inheritances, and sex.
This transit can be compared to a double-edged sword. With awareness, we can direct our focus toward doing good. Be wary of psychic impressions, as they may be inaccurate amidst the Neptunian fog of confusion. Rather than allowing suspicion to develop into paranoia, we should direct our genuine compassion and empathy toward assisting others, especially outcasts or those who are suffering.
💫Lastly, late this afternoon, Mars in Libra will inconjunct Saturn Rx in Pisces
requiring an adjustment of attitude between two signs totally unrelated to one another. This makes it much more difficult to integrate these two forces. Think oil and water. And yet, mixing the two with a binding agent unites all three into one. A form of alcohol, as vodka, is a binding agent.
Aside from getting drunk, these two could seek similarities. Saturn's focus is on security and safety through teaching; Mar's focus is on action and initiative through energy. These two could easily form an indestructible alliance when united through a common cause.
These aspects push us toward those we share nothing with in order to discover just how much we do share in common, and how to work with others. Take advantage of the energy! Degrees, Aspects, Time:
