"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Arthur May Be Gone, But The First Quarter Moon and Today's Alignments Won't Go Quietly!!

   It was a fast moving storm with very high winds and more water than we've seen in the Northeast for awhile. Now the sun is shining to illuminate the fallen branches and broken patio furniture... that's all I can see from my third floor window. I hope Arthur wasn't too rough on the sea shore!

   Today's celestial news came in this morning in the form of a First Quarter Moon, a square between the waxing Moon in Libra and the Sun in Cancer. Whenever we have this challenging aspect between the two "Lights",  illumination and growth are the focus with a necessary change the goal! The tension that built up prior to the exact square, at 8:am, put stress on the weak spots and hopefully gave you insight into what needs to change. Where did you experience this last night and early this morning?

   Adding to the interest today is a helpful aspect, a trine, between the Moon and Venus, setting the stage for a pleasant time midday. Take some time out to appreciate the beauty around you or to create some beauty and harmony with loved ones. Let this carry you forward through a possible upset or afternoon surprise coming in around 1:46p.m EST when the Moon opposes that upstart Uranus. Go with the flow as much as possible and don't be thrown off course by this new development, unless you need to take a different path, then go for it!

   We round out the evening with fireworks, literally and figuratively, as the Moon aligns with Mars, the fiery planet of energy, action and impulsiveness. Use this figuration to bring a burst of energy to a stagnant situation or relationship, but leave out the aggressive drama that Mars can add. Go for fun and/or romance instead!! Celebrate our freedoms!

Happy Holiday weekend everyone!! Remember, head in the stars, feet on the ground and enjoy the fireworks, if you didn't already have them in your town~
