Cosmic Calendar

With tomorrow offering up the next New Moon — occurring at 4 degrees of Leo — all of today and a good portion of Saturday occur during the dark-of-the-moon cycle. This happens every month just before the waning Moon makes its reunion with the Sun — starting a new 29.5 day solar-lunar dance in the zodiac. The essence of the dark-of-the-moon cycle — also known as the Balsamic Moon Phase — is to finish old projects and enterprises that began about four weeks ago. In this sense, the dark-of-the-moon time-period resembles an extended void-of-course lunar condition.

Today’s two main positive alignments arrive early as Mercury trines Chiron (2:43AM and emphasizing holistic healing interests across the board) and the Moon in Cancer forms its monthly union with Mercury (6:54AM). In the couple of hours just before 6:54AM, communications and literary endeavors gain stature. However, the Moon-Mercury conjunction also starts a 25- hour void lunar twilight zone that continues in force until 7:56AM on Saturday. Don’t go overboard in any direction with the Moon void in Cancer. R and R, sports and exercise can still give you a short-term boost — courtesy of an inspirational, 72-degree tie between Mars and Pluto (8:46AM).

The main astrological news of the day arrives later on when the red planet Mars finally leaves Libra (where it has been located since December 7, 2013) for strong-willed, fixed, and relentless Scorpio (7:26PM). Mars remains in this formidable, no-nonsense, water sign — which the ancient and medieval astrologers said Mars ruled — until September 13 when the red planet enters fiery Sagittarius.
