This is a busy day with a number of higher order aspects perfecting.

Here is the list of aspects (Sunout) for today:
Ven (1) Spt Ura (3)
Mer (2) Spt Plu (12)
Mer (2) Nov Ura (3)
Ven (1) QNv Jup (8)
Mar (10) TrUn Nep (2)
Ven (1) Qnt Sat (11)
Sun (2) Cnj Chi (2)
We note Sun conjunct Chiron today. This is an annual aspect that brings health, education, mentoring, and “the Wounded Healer” to the forefront. Venus quadrinovile Jupiter tells us that we can learn an important lesson or skill that will serve us well in the future. Keep in mind that this might seem like something trivial because Quadrinoviles often bring us skills that are useful in the future (but not yet currently). Mercury novile Uranus may bring us one or more additional lessons. Venus quintile Saturn may also bring us a smart, but practical, idea. Septiles suggest that we help someone less fortunate than ourselves.
We are a day past the Solar Eclipse, and we can start thinking about taking action on some of the ideas that we have noted on previous days.

BUT, the Moon remains v/c (void of course) from yesterday until 1:39 PM CST. That means we have to wait until some time after 1:39 PM CST to make our desired launch today. Keep in mind that the further you can move away from a “sign change boundary” the better (unless you have Venus or Jupiter near the cusp of Aries). That means later in the day as much as possible.
With the North Node semisextile Black Moon Lilith (both points in space, so to some degree this reflects the Earth’s alignment at this time), we have taboo topics (especially taboo sexual topics) bubbling to the surface and may face some “hard karma” in dealing with them. Today is anything but ordinary for many (if not most) people. Venus Novile Pluto says we can learn a lesson here (both can, and do, deal with Love (Venus) and Sex (Pluto)). Venus is also TriSeptile the North Node, and this brings the idea that doing a totally selfless (best if anonymous, also) act to help someone else might relieve at least a little of our “hard karma.”
Expect a few shakeups today (and maybe some surprising revelations); if you wait until afternoon (later is better) you can accomplish a few important results.
You will still feel Sun square Saturn from yesterday as well as Jupiter quincunx Uranus and Mercury semisquare Pluto (and other aspects). Today Mercury is semisquare Uranus, marking Mercury at the midpoint in the dissolving square between Uranus (Aries) and Pluto (Capricorn).
Given Mercury’s recent square to Mars (which repeats a number of time this year), we offer that many people are “on edge” and violence and danger can erupt over even the most trivial dispute. Alternatively, some people may need to “stand their ground” in certain cases. A long lunar void of course affects the period of time from 2:46 AM CST until 1:08 PM CST, and we are in the “Dark of the Moon.” That means that these disputes can yield anything of lasting benefit and can only offer harm (unless you are forced to defend yourself and cannot safely withdraw from the situation).
Mars is quintile Jupiter, and many of us can learn lessons from these uncomfortable events. Lessons can be learned and skills can be developed. The moon is very old, and this can be a good time to obtain a glimpse of the future. But, reserve action until some time after tomorrow.
After last week, you may want a break but Sun square Saturn will not give you one. Duty calls in some form, maybe business or family, and you must attend to it. Much chatter will emerge, and some of it may be continued disputes form the recent Mercury / Mars aspect (and change of signs). Lessons can be learned and skills can be developed. Pay attention. Get things done. And, when you get a chance, give yourself a break and get some rest anyway.
Mars enters Sagittarius, and (somewhat like yesterday) that fact tends to dominate the day along with the fact that Mars is void all day until 8:28 PM CST. “Getting things done” may seem a little weird. As if that were not enough, Mercury enters Pisces in the early morning hours. We have a day where we may chatter and inadvertently reveal important confidential details about plans, but no one can accomplish much (or, if they do accomplish “much” they will discover, to their chagrin, that it does not last or result in the manner they expect).
Best to make this Saturday a “play day” if you can. Avoid major purchases.
Mercury squares Mars, and that says it all. Females could especially be on the warpath. Issues of education and healthcare are in play. Important lessons, subtle ones, can be learned by those paying attention. But, most importantly, be careful. Mercury square Mars leads to fights, both physical and verbal, and actions you may regret and words that cannot be unspoken.
Moon in Capricorn can be heartless. (Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler, and Adam Lanza had Moon in Capricorn. So does George Clooney and Johnny Depp. And so did Abraham Lincoln. Which one would you rather be today?)
Moon moves into Capricorn at 4:01 AM CST, and a remarkably busy day begins. Those of you at work or in traffic at 6:03 AM CST (within an hour of that time) have a good chance of experiencing a glitch of some kind; this might carry through for the remainder of the day. But this day contains opportunities to learn and develop an important set of skills, and an opportunity to make amends for past wrongs may exist.
We think today could be an important turning point for some people (especially, but not limited to, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).
Today is a good day for innovators, particularly engineers and scientists but also for Internet innovators (who may be neither scientist nor engineer). With Venus Sextile Uranus, we may see an unusual romance blossom at lunch today (Western Hemisphere) or supper (EU / UK). Wrap it up by 8:54 PM CST when the Sagittarius Moon turns void and take the rest of the evening off.
Subtle nuances may fleet by those not sufficiently attuned to notice. A chance to anonymously help someone less fortunate than ourselves without any expectations may unexpectedly lead to a solution to a previously unforeseen problem. Keep your eyes and ears open.
