Planet power? It’s the asteroids that call the shots today

At 2:06 a.m.: Mars is opposite Pallas

In the pre-dawn hours, Mars in Taurus opposes Pallas in Scorpio, preventing us from executing a strategy. Mars in Taurus inspires deliberate, plodding, and intentional action plans. We are determined to make a venture work despite the obstacles. However, we can also do more work for ourselves by failing to switch up our tactics when the situation arises. On the other hand, Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom, is BEGGING us to see the writing on the wall. If we would only modify our approach, we might be able to see success! Yet our fear of straying from tried-and-true methods is a major impediment, fostering more frustration. “Work smarter, not harder” is definitely not our motto today. Unfortunately, it might take us seeing another person accomplish a similar feat in half the time before we’ll be willing to ditch our M.O.

At 10:03 a.m.: Juno is opposite Saturn

After sun-up, Juno in Virgo opposes Saturn in Pisces, fostering contractual breaches. Juno and Saturn both care deeply about loyalty and fidelity. An ability to commit is their chief asset. However, today’s clash has us questioning which commitments are most important. Juno believes in the power of relationships. Staying loyal to the oaths we’ve taken takes primacy. But what happens if these oaths conflict with our promises to a higher power, an institutional authority, or even our intuition? Saturn’s influence will win out in this capacity, so as these two oppose, we might have to rethink our commitments to others. It is important now to draw boundaries. We don’t need to tear up contracts, but we need the discipline to revise them.
