The energies for the day focus on the Moon, Mars and Venus… think passion, acting from the heart, erotically charged energy with a desire for security in combination with opportunities for courageous encounters, harmony, beauty and loads of charm mixed in.
Moon in Cancer and Mars in Virgo are in a sextile combination – a sixty degree angle between them. That creates a fantastic time to act on your passions and to create some beautiful harmony and beautiful opportunities. But this is short lived so act now! It’s a perfect time to act courageously for a cause you really believe in – to be a champion for something worthwhile – particularly women and children.
Moon and Venus are moving into an opposition as the day progresses… if you balance these two energies well you get love, beauty, charm, and a lovely social environment. There can be a dreamy quality within. You may feel inspired by art – either creating or appreciating it. If these two energies are out of balance for you then you may feel a real longing for love and perhaps a need for security. You may feel that you have to choose between love/desire and security. This energy is strongest late night and into early morning Eastern Time.
“Falling in love” is a phrase that comes to mind when I think of today’s energies. I don’t mean with a person per se, though that of course is possible. But falling in love with anything beautiful and worthy of your passion – a cause, art, a film, a child, an organization that champions something you believe in… let your heart go in this direction and see what you find yourself in front of.
When I think of the Moon, Venus and Mars combined, I can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe. She was feisty and passionate like Moon/Mars, sexy and erotic like Mars/Venus, and always craving security, protection and love like the Moon in Cancer (today’s Moon placement and it’s natural home).
I always felt insecure and in the way, but most of all I felt scared. I guess I wanted love more than anything else in the world. (moon in cancer/venus)
Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one. (moon/venus)
I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best. (moon/mars/venus)
I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it. (mars/venus)
There’s huge potential for bold action, pleasure and love today. Use these energies wisely and you may create wonderful opportunities!
