October 6: An Irreverent Mood

October 6: An Irreverent Mood

The moon is square Venus at 5:41 a.m.

Tuesday morning begins with a fun, buzz inducing square between the moon in shape-shifting Gemini and Venus in detail-focused Virgo. Both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communications and mischief, so this square may get the day off to a playful start. The air is alive with a curious and irreverent mood, and we may feel like following our bliss instead of getting to work.

The moon/Venus square is typically an indulgent time, and in this case, it’s unlikely that we will be able to stay serious or keep a straight face. This aspect may encourage teasing and silliness with our loved ones that might have the potential to go a little too far.


The moon is sextile Chiron Rx at 10:51 a.m.

The Gemini moon’s playful and mischievous mood adds levity to the theme of ongoing wounds in the late morning. The waning moon forms a sextile aspect with Chiron in impulsive Aries, a helpful blending of sociable air and vitalizing fire. At least for now, our wounds and burdens may feel a little lighter, as we approach these with ease, fluidity, and adaptability. Sometimes healing can occur when we relax from always working on our problems and ongoing self-development and invite a bit of rest, play, and breathing room into our daily practices. It’s in the space between we often find our freshest insights and new perspectives.


The moon is inconjunct Mercury at 3:11 p.m.

Late afternoon, the moon in adaptive Gemini forms an inconjunct angle with Mercury in passionate Scorpio. The inconjunct is an “aspect of no aspect,” meaning it occurs between signs that don’t connect through element or mode. Gemini is mutable air, while Scorpio is fixed water, and the two signs could not be more different in their natures. Gemini’s moon represents a light, curious, and changeable mood that does not ground or connect with Mercury in probing and intuitive Scorpio. This inconjunct makes for a potentially uneasy couple of hours, where conversations seem like they are not flowing as smoothly as we’d like them to.
