Daily Astrological Currents Archives

This page is offered as away to look back at the Daily Astrological Currents Archives for a particular day going back to December of 2013.

Tuesday September 26, 2023

The Moon goes VOC early in the day today, from 5:38 AM PDT until 5:17 PM PDT, following a Moon-Uranus square. Generally, things are unlikely to turn out as planned. Developing clear consensus is especially difficult and may feel quite frustrating. There may be more information available than we can effectively process. Increased activity may only produce increased impatience. The Moon's arrival in Pisces sets up a conjunction with the retrograding Saturn this evening. Essentially, the evening offers us an opportunity for a 'reset' of our self-image and increased willingness to show compassion and understanding for those who have different ideas and perspectives than we do.

Weekly Summary


"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

As we approach Friday's Aries Full Moon (2:57 AM PDT 6° Aries/Libra), there is a sense that we are coming to some clear conclusions — a new plan of action. Mercury returns to make a third trine to Jupiter on Monday, which increases our confidence, as well as our belief in ourselves and the new insights that we have developed. Mercury escapes the shadow of it's last retrograde phase with a demonstrative trine to Uranus on Saturday, just after the Full Moon. We have done our review and 'research' and we're ready to present our findings! However, with Mars in Libra, approaching the lunar South Node in Libra, we'll need to carefully modulate our presentations and avoid an 'I told you so' attitude or a 'my way or the highway' approach. The increasing activity can easily bring increased impatience. The Aries Full Moon punctuates this lunar cycle's grounded and methodical review with a burst of energy, encouraging decisive action. But Venus is also picking up significant speed from her last retrograde period and makes a third square to Uranus — suggesting a strong desire to show off our unique insights in a manner that could become quite abrasive and even self-serving. There is a significant desire to gain some recognition as well as a strong streak of independence that could encourage us to believe that we don't need others — which is just not the case. This week's environment demands that we walk the 'razor's edge' of discretion and diplomacy. We must certainly maintain our unique, individual perspectives and honor the insights that we have gathered from our own experiences. But with the ruler of the Aries Full Moon — Mars — in Libra and approaching a conjunction with lunar South Node before making a square to Pluto (which will complete on October 9th), we must remember that anger and aggression can quickly throw us off balance. What is crucial is that we seek to build open lines of communication and gain access to the widest possible expanse of viewpoints. Rather than simply saying "I told you so", we can come to appreciate how our individual insights are being reflected in others around us and come to recognize that those others can become allies. Venus in Leo can tempt us to focus on recognition and the acknowledgement — by others — of our individual value. But by focusing on the value that others assign to us, the credit they give us, we only weaken our own independent commitment and resolve — and the way that we value ourselves.

Sunday provides an auspicious series of connections which point to a new plan of action. We find continuity even as we prepare to break new ground. We are tempted by self-satisfaction and possibly an 'I told you so' attitude on Monday. However, we should not miss the opportunity to build connections to those who are finally coming around to our point of view. Things may not turn out as planned on Tuesday. Developing consensus is especially difficult and frustrating. We have an important opportunity to 'prepare our presentation' on Wednesday. We should make room for compassion and understanding of those who have different perspectives than we do. We should look for ways to appreciate the importance of seeing our individual perspectives reflected in those around us on Thursday. We'll need to be cautious about aggressively asserting what we think we know. Friday's Aries Full Moon requires that we navigate the 'razor's edge' of diplomacy and discretion. We can seek the advancement of our individual perspectives and ideas without alienating those around us. There is some potential for ego disruptions on Saturday. Tensions rise in an activated atmosphere.
