September 24: Having Diplomatic Conversations

Early morning, Mercury in justice-seeking Libra forms an opposition with Mars in volatile Aries. This aspect may symbolize hard conversations and confrontations today, where we have to hold impulses and urges in balance with a sense of peace and fairness. Mercury in Libra is leading discussions in a diplomatic direction, yet Mars in battle-ready Aries demands instant results and action. We may feel this aspect on an inner level, highlighting needs that we are trying to reconcile. It may also symbolize confrontations in our lives and the world around us, as society continues to negotiate for justice and peace.

This charged opposition sets a tone for facing hard truths, a theme that continues as the moon in sombre Capricorn forms a square aspect with Chiron, also in Aries. This square brings our deepest wounds to light in an uncomfortable way. There may be a personal theme mirrored in society now, of tending to how systemic inequalities have wounded us personally and collectively. Special attention, care, and support may be needed to ensure that we do not enact further damage from a wounded place, as being immersed in our unresolved pain can be blinding and confusing.

Later in the morning, some hope may arrive in the form of sudden insight, when the moon in dutiful Capricorn forms a stabilizing earth trine with Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the planet of upheaval, but also invention; and an inventive, emotional solution may be revealed now. After the challenging conversations and edgy emotions of the day, we may come to understand our feelings—or another’s—from a new perspective that helps us grow and evolve. Since the moon represents our body’s healing reserves, this earth trine may point us to the need for rest and self-care, and the importance of making space for this amid times of significant change and uncertainty.
