Mars trine Neptune
Mars trine Neptune is exact on Wednesday at 9:59 PM PT. Mars is raw energy and passion. Neptune is the receptive principle. It acts by dissolving and refining. A trine is a positive, flowing aspect. Mars trine Neptune brings inspiration, and often, help at the right time. Mars trine Neptune can also inspire the warrior in you to fight for spiritual values and the downtrodden. I was listening to NPR this morning on my way to the Farmer’s Market. The story was of a network helping sex slaves captured by ISIS to escape. The man who runs this underground railroad is constantly threatened, but he said something like: “My life is worth less than one tear of a captured twelve-year-old girl.” That is a spiritual warrior. It is a good reminder of the wealth, abundance, and privilege we have in the west. And of the best of the human spirit that is ready to sacrifice and fight for others. Today Venus joins the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn at 9:26 PM. Venus is not so happy in this responsible sign, however, loyalty and self-control in love will be at a premium. Venus meets up with Saturn tomorrow at 9:55 AM giving a sober start to the day. We have a long Void Moon in Aries on Wednesday from 12:57 PM until 10:23 PM when the Moon eases into earth Taurus, where it is exalted. Finally, Mercury leaves its retrograde storm on Thursday. Merry Christmas if you celebrate it, and love and light to you if you celebrate anything else at this time of year.
