The Moon leaves All-Business Capricorn for Friendly, Progressive-Minded Aquarius (10:24 am EDT).  We may want to relax our formality a little, be a bit more impromptu. Aquarius welcomes “deviations from the norm.”

Also, it behooves us to be willing to take time out of our busy schedules today to extend a helpful hand to our fellow colleagues and comrades. With the Aquarius Moon, the emphasis is “less about us” and “more about others.” We may also want to keep in mind now that being willing to stand up for the causes we believe in, is how we can best affect the kind of change that we are wanting to see around us.

Quote for the day:

“A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.” Donna Roberts

On This Date In History:

October 15, 1969 – The “Vietnam Moratorium” is held.  Millions of people protest the war. In the heavens, Warrior Mars in Capricorn, the sign of government, is exactly square to Philosophical Jupiter in Libra, the sign of peace and diplomacy.

“Mars-Jupiter” is an aspect with a great history of “firing up our passions and idealism.” Mars energizes whatever it touches and Jupiter represents our moral beliefs.  We are willing to “do combat” (Mars) for “what we believe in” now (Jupiter), similar to the energy of today’s Aquarius Moon which speaks to us about getting involved in causes “greater than ourselves.” With the Vietnam Moratorium, the protesters peacefully dissented (diplomatic Libra) against the “war policies”of the government (Mars in Capricorn).

Often Mars-Jupiter is associated with “religious fanaticism,” too, as Jupiter rules religion, and the nature of  Jupiter is such (especially when it is aligned with energizer Mars) that we can easily “go overboard” and get “carried away” with whatever we are involved with. Even though Jupiter is an “expansive influence,” and more of a “benevolent planet,” sometimes the pitfall with it is we do not know when to “rein ourselves in.” For example, Jupiter is also associated with obesity and excess. We can’t stop with just “one jelly doughnut,” we have to consume a whole dozen! So, moderation is often needed and called for with Jupiter, if we are going to utilize the energies of this great planet to the best capacity.
