Opposition/Integration!


Watch out for flying missiles today!! If you see one coming at you … duck!!

The Moon (emotional patterns)  in Libra today is activating Mars … (planet of aggression). Mars is  sitting exactly  opposite Venus in Aries (fierce love) right now... activating the classic war of the sexes and causing some very powerful push-pull energies. Venus is conjunct (together with) Uranus… bringing an urge to break free of restrictions along with sudden shocks, awakenings, even accidents.  Tension with Pluto and Uranus… the destroyer versus the awakener,  adds big pressure on whatever issues are coming up at this time.  The fourth part of the Grand Cross is Jupiter in Cancer amplifying our emotions and bringing out our inner child issues.





This all means there is an intensity and depth  to the emotions that are emerging, and  due to Saturn's being opposite Sun  in Taurus, some of us will not be able to avoid some sort of confrontation. Saturn can have a dampening effect on our sense of self (sun) and it is too easy to become  overly defensive  when our deep survival or security fears are activated.  Jealousy or control issues can show up right now,  and it can seem like there is no room to move. Watch out for black and white thinking. There is always a way through.

We will need to be careful of our words, because of a square from Mercury (communication) in Gemini (need to talk)  to Neptune that brings a tendency toward obfuscation. Misunderstandings are rife!!  

There is a silver lining.  Mercury  Venus and Moon show us what it is.   Communicate!!   Speak from your heart.   Emotional integrity is key with so much pressure and tension in the air. This  wild and weird friction  can be harnessed to produce much positive energy! Speak your truth!!

 Jupiter  and Neptune  will help us see the bigger picture.  Pisces provides  a spiritual base to meet within. The essence of all that is:  keep your heart open!



And if you are caught up in this current game of opposites, try not to get caught up in differences.  Find middle ground. 

The Venus Mars opposition are in what is called ‘mutual reception’ ...(each others signs) meaning these energies, though polarized, can produce an integration of opposites.  

Remember there are always two sides to every story. Make an effort to see the other persons point of view (always)... and use this opportunity to see what deeper issues (Saturn in Scorpio) need healing and cleansing (Jupiter in Cancer) Usually our deep hurts are based in our childhood needs not getting met. These become hair triggers which our intimate relationships tend to activate.


When everything  is so magnified, intensified, and deeply challenging,  we need to recognize that these polarities exist within all of us, and the mirroring going on is one more opportunity to  own your own stuff. The Mercury Neptune angle means dishonesty or confusion is more likely to occur in our communications, so try to be very very clear and very honest about whatever it is that is coming up.

If we try and dodge the lessons or avoid facing issues that are coming up, Saturn opposite Sun wont let us off so easily.  It is time to own our own stuff... and take responsibility for what we are creating in our lives and in our relationships.  

Yet these challenges can be exciting, transformative, and for our ultimate growth and learning.

See  who is in front of you (and who is confronting you)... and thank them  for being the gift that is going to bring you wisdom, forbearance and inner strength!! Thank them for being exactly what you need at this moment to become the best ‘you’ you can be.


Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.
