If you feel like you are suddenly being backed into a corner or that someone wants to lock you in a cage, you may be tuning into a series of rather turbulent sky patterns that may jolt humanity over the next six days. Right off the bat, one of two monthly squares between the Moon and Saturn (currently in Leo and Scorpio, respectively) occurs at 1:27AM. The Moon and Saturn at odds with one another has a slight emotional drawback, but this particular contact also starts a 25-hour void lunar twilight zone that lasts until 2:34AM tomorrow.
In the meantime, the Sun and Mercury return to some of their recent obnoxious behavior patterns as the solar orb forms a tense, 135-degree tie with wild-card holder Uranus (12:38AM) and Mercury joins the possible celestial mayhem by opposing Chiron (6:56AM) and forming an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Uranus (7:02AM). With supposed friends like these, who needs enemies? Then a too-little-too-late, 30-degree contact between Juno and Jupiter (9:02PM) arrives on the scene to a lackluster smattering of applause.
Keep in mind — as reported in yesterday’s calendar entry — the dark-of-the-moon, balsamic lunar phase cycle is upon us and this influence can inflate the uncertainty factor of a void-of-course Moon presence to an enormous degree. You are best off finishing old business and projects from the last few weeks with care and precision, and then holding off on launching bold plans until the astro-psychic coast is truly clear.
