Yesterday's tale of caution due to a 21 hour void lunar cycle in Cancer ends at 1:32AM this morning when the Moon enters fiery, heart-centered Leo (1:32AM). While the Moon in the fifth sign of the Zodiac for the next 2 days offers some playful, child-like, and creative opportunities, especially in the fine and graphic arts, solar and planetary alignments carry a lugubrious countenance.
The unfriendly vibes begin when the Sun in Libra makes one of two, annual squares to Machiavellian Pluto in Capricorn (7:16AM). Refrain from arm-twisting maneuvers and manipulative behavior. The shadow side of Neptune -- namely confusion and chaos -- can appear on the scene as Juno makes an off-kilter, 150-degree tie to the ancient God of the Seas (6:35PM) while Mars in Virgo makes its first opposition to Neptune in Pisces (7:54PM) in the last two years.
Trying to gain traction in improving relationship bonds may be stalled from the get-go. Mercury retrograde in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius attempt a rescue mission via common sense and pragmatic actions through a supportive, 60-degree liaison (3:59PM), but their resourcefulness may not be strong enough to neutralize the rising tensions already filling up the psychic atmosphere. Do your best to avoid becoming your own worst enemy and prepare for the arrival of another long void lunar cycle tomorrow.
