A Day of Conflict… and Conflict Resolution

November 14, 2023

At 6:04 a.m.: The moon is conjunct Mercury

In the morning, the moon and Mercury align in Sagittarius, making us social and chatty. The only downside is our lack of a filter. We are apt to say anything that pops into our heads now, and some of our sentiments might be insensitive.  We aren’t trying to provoke. We’re certainly not coming from a cruel place. But our biases and judgments can wreak havoc. When misunderstandings inevitably arise, commit to talking it out. Strive to listen and absorb what others are saying with the same enthusiasm you have for making declarations.

At 6:44 a.m.: The moon is sextile Venus

Following this, the moon sextiles Venus in Libra, foreshadowing the successful resolution of a disagreement. This is an excellent influence for finding common ground and focusing on the ties that bind us instead of those that separate us.  We genuinely want to be understood, and we genuinely want to understand where others are coming from. This aspect allows us to walk a mile in another’s shoes, and level the playing field when we see injustice. We can stand up for other’s rights now, not with force or aggressive action, but through solidarity.
