Jan 3 2009

After a brief Void of Course in the middle of the night, our friend the Moon is in Aries. Residual effects from a square with Pluto and sextile with Mercury in the wee hours predawn will likely be felt for the first part of the day as depth which can be communicated about. A good morning to talk about and integrate the deeper meaning of one's dreams. Moon is also sextile/trine the North/South Node axis, making easier communication of emotions from a feeling of familiarity or being in place. However, there will be a fly in the soup, Moon will also be square Mars, exact around Noon PST--- be aware of irritation, brashness creeping into the mix.

Also, the cluster of heavenly bodies largely in Capricorn and Aquarius may make for a bit of lopsidedness. Give them a few months for the faster ones to move on, as Mercury is heading into yet another retrograde soon.

Saturn in Virgo is in Retrograde through May 2009. For those born mid 1979 through mid 1980, Saturn will be backing up for a mini repeat of your Saturn return---"...and one more thing...". The Saturn return, which happens around age 29, often pushes major life shifts and changes, so if you have been holding onto anything no longer appropriate for you, expect another nudge. If you are on the right track, so to speak, no worries.

Further, for those who have the Sun Sign of Virgo, ie born Septemberish (any year), Saturn will be backing over towards or on your Sun for another set of lessons. In general for those Virgos effected, not a good time for risk taking, better to batten down the hatches, simplify, focus on what is really important.

The Birthcard of today is the Jack of Spades, a Mars expression of a Uranus core, with a Seven of Clubs inside and a Ten of Clubs outside. J. R. R. Tolkien, Jeane Dixon, Gordon Moore, Ron Howard, and Roger Daltrey all share this Birthcard, whether they know it or not.
