“Soul meets soul on lover’s lips.” Percy Bysshe Shelly

The Moon in Pisces heightens our sensitivity and puts the spotlight on our feelings and compassion. Our romantic fantasies may also turn into reality as relationship Venus sextiles passionate Mars. This is a great influence for meeting new people and also for creative and artistic projects. Both of these influences permeate the weekend.

Venus harmonious to Mars can also help to smooth over tensions in existing relationships while the Pisces Moon adds an extra measure of soothing healing and nurturing.

On a collective level, with Pisces ruling both the sea and oil, the Moon’s entrance here may also magnify our focus on the precarious situation in the Gulf of Mexico.

In the News:

Wall Street suffered its biggest ever intraday drop yesterday falling 998.5 points!  In one ten minute stretch, the Dow slid nearly 700 points.  While it is still unclear what happened here, a trading glitch is suspected.

The Wall Street sell-off also came in the wake of mounting fears of debt defaults in Europe.

Astrologically, we still have Mercury retrograde in the financial sign of Taurus, which would represent the suspected trading irregularity.

Also the last few days, the transiting Sun in Taurus has been making an exact square to volatile Mars.  The Sun-Mars influence, while it only lasts about a week, can have a major impact while it’s in play. Mars often ignites or triggers new events, usually of an unsteady nature.

Mars is the Lord of War and symbolizes the aggressive urge. As a byproduct of this, Mars’s activated ray is often associated with panic, dissension and violence.  Of course, we have seen this playing out in Greece this week.

“Fear tends to manifest itself much more quickly than greed, so volatile markets tend to be on the downside.  In up markets, volatility tends to gradually decline.” Philip Roth
