Sun is Libra, 26° 35'
Moon is Libra, 26° 35'
The Sun and Moon in Libra meet up on a critical degree, adding flexibility to our opinions, but also a level of restlessness in seeking out the truth. This region of Libra is ruled by Mercury, lending itself to be more communicative and intellectually expressive.
The Sun and Moon conjunction is forming a sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius while also opposing Uranus retrograde in Aries. This wedge-like combo can cause us to feel confused between putting down roots and putting out fires. Relationships and partnerships may spin as we attempt to find our footing.
Mercury and Jupiter meet up in Scorpio. We may need to navigate through a few secrets to get to the truth. What we want to understand is the hidden motives (ours or others) behind the decisions. There can be a sense of learning within our choices, forcing us to become more acute in our perceptions.
Mars in the latter degrees of Virgo is square to Saturn in Sagittarius. We may love what we do, but feel frustrated by our interactions with others within our personal sphere. We are likely to hit a roadblock that forces us to re-examine our desires relative to our connections..
Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio now, and for the next year. We may discover that a lot of our actions with others involves either legal issues or financial situations. We may be drawn into the "I deserve this more than you," failing to recognize that we may not have truly earned it. There is a certain level of passion that we feel, while Jupiter transits through Scorpio, that skews our motives. Some of us recognize it for what it is, and navigate it in a way that helps with psychological growth. Others of us may wallow in ways that impede our growth.
It should be noted that Uranus retrograde is moving over a critical degree in Aries adding awkward fuel to our attempts to lead in unconventional ways. Try to be more reflective than bombastic during this time.
The most productive feature of this chart is the overall balance of placements. There's a fairly equal placement of planets in the receptives and the elements. While there are five planetary placements in the cardinal qualities, there are enough placements in mutable and fixed signs to keep us from becoming too attached to our own ideas as being the only option. We have the ability to look at all perspectives, if we choose.
