Do you need some celestial reinforcement to enhance your problem-solving skills? Help is on the way in the form of the monthly Moon-Pallas union in Scorpio (12:23AM). This key conjunction can double as a boost for strategy sessions and innovative work in almost any field of endeavor.
Meanwhile, your mind and emotions can coalesce to form a dynamic-duo several hours later when Mercury forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Mars (6:02AM). The monthly Moon-Mercury union (10:20AM) — energizing communications across the board — might seem to settle any doubt that today appears to be a winning experience, but almost simultaneously Mars forms a dicey, 45-degree link to Neptune (10:19AM). This Mars-Neptune encounter can ruffle your feathers by creating a rising tide of confusion and chaos in a wide variety of activities. Do your best to think carefully before acting. Rash behavior is taboo. Pallas and Juno forging a frictional square pattern (8:10PM) can also prove jarring, mentally and emotionally. Therefore, cool your heels around this time-period, avoiding over-analysis or brooding about the mood swings of a dear one.
This last day of Solar Scorpio concludes with the Moon making a union with Saturn in Scorpio (9:54PM). Learn lessons from respected teachers, mentors, and elders. Be aware that the Moon-Saturn liaison begins a void lunar cycle that lasts until 4:20AM tomorrow when Sagittarius Moon starts in earnest.
