Mars Sextile the North Node | taking action toward our heart's desire, releasing detachment, cooperation, authenticity, our words are our fortune

oil by Marta Syrko
It seems that the weekly was not wanting to be written this week. Something came up every time I sat down with the charts. We'll do dailies!

Today, we have an optimistic, enthusiastic Sagittarius Moon.

She conjuncts Mercury, squares Chiron and then goes on to trine Uranus. All in a day's work!

This is a good time to share an original message. A healing message - remember that square to Chiron. Our words are our fortune here. A Sagittarian Moon could see us focused on Sagittarius themes - travel, places outside our comfort zones, foreign issues or people, education (higher than what we have now), anything we are taking to a higher level, politics, religion (of course politics and religion share a house, right!), legal issues, weddings, the media and marketing.

The Moon goes void at 7:26PM EST.

Mars (in Libra) sextiles the North Node (in Leo) and trines the South Node (in Aquarius) at 18 degrees.

Opportunities (sextile) to take action, likely through cooperative ventures with other people (Mars in Libra), are created as we move toward the North Node

(LEO - our heart, the way we are meant to shine in the world, the theme of the house ruled by Leo in our natal chart and/or the house that holds the Sun in our natal chart).

What we are releasing (South Node) slips out of focus smoothly (trine - brakes off) now.

With the North Node in brave Leo the steps that require a courageous heart will likely be the most correct steps. With Mars in balanced Libra there will be a need to take the needs of other people into consideration here. Whatever the next step is there will be a certain ease involved now. The bottom line with Leo is creating something we can be proud of whether it be a home, baby, business, relationship, product, body, etc.

Working with today's Mars themes and our busy Sag Moon - this is good energy to combine a need for independence or an independent project or an independent way of thinking - into an opportunity with other people. We don't have to give up our freedom/individuality to play well with others. Our original way of being, our authenticity, needs to be part of the process.

It's what we came here to give/share.

Think you don't know what you came here to give/ how you came here to SHINE? You do. What house holds the Sun in your natal chart? What is the theme of that house? What house has Leo on the cusp? What is the theme of that house? If you don't know, ask me. When you find out I can guarantee you will say "oh, I knew that." ♡

Remember the Mars/Pluto square is still in play (Danger Will Robinson). Avoid confrontations. Drive safely. Don't wander down any dark alleys looking for your lost kitty. The kitty will be fine, nine lives and all, you on the other hand ....

Writing about relationships and the things we are taking to the next level is making me think about Jupiter in Scorpio. 

Before Jupiter ingressed into Scorpio (October 10, 2017) he had been in Libra for 13 months. Libra/Scorpio are our 'relationship signs' ruling our relationship houses - 7th and 8th.

Scorpio comes after Libra. Scorpio corrects the inhibitions/imbalances/excesses of Libra. Not the other way around. To go from Scorpio to Libra we need to go all the way around the zodiac. We can see why it is easier to go from friends to lovers than from lovers to friends. Lovers to friends is a much longer journey!

If we have been 'nice' (Libra) to keep the peace (Libra), for example - we will find we are no longer able to do this. Our real feelings are bubbling to the surface and there won't be anything we, or anyone else, can do about it. 

Next year Jupiter will come home to Sagittarius - we will be able to view our relationships (the ones that are still standing and the ones that have not survived) from a higher space. And, yes, this absolutely includes our relationship with ourselves. We will recognize the gifts THEN. 

For now, we just have to feel (Scorpio is a water sign!) what is being dredged up. There might not always seem like there is a resolution. And there might not be. Just work the process. 

The process is what changes us, not the outcome. 

Jupiter in Scorpio will expand the Plutonic themes of sex, power, death, rebirth, taxes, other people's resources, inheritance, debt, gains/losses, atomic energy/war, sexuality, the ways we merge with other people, issues with the parts of our body used to merge - you get the idea.

We can see this happening in the news. In the United States the media (ruled by Jupiter) moved from healthcare coverage to tax coverage like a switch was flipped. Sexual wrongdoings/crimes, issues of power and control - all very Scorpian/Plutonic. 

Whatever is pulling down/weakening the collective here will be yanked out like weeds.

All that is happening in the collective is happening in our own lives and within our own bodies, too. Situations/relationships with unbalanced power structures are not doing so well right now. 

Again, this is a process. Jupiter will be in Scorpio until November 8, 2018.
