The Moon continues its stay in restless, self-willed Aries. We also have the illuminating Sun in intense, reforming Scorpio in an unsteady alignment (sesquiquadrate) with radical, disruptive Uranus in Aries. We may be wanting to march impromptu to the beat of a different drummer today, perhaps as a rejuvenating catharsis. Or maybe simply as an act of revolt. Yet the Moon’s monthly opposition to conforming Saturn, in relationship Libra (1:10 pm EST), may also mean that there still is a weighty expectation upon us to “tow the line,” to some extent, especially where others are concerned.  Moon-Saturn has a way of sternly holding us accountable, especially whenever we have committed or violated any breaches of protocol. Probably not a good day for rash or impulsive moves, or for acting too independently, unless we are willing to maturely accept the consequences or possible fallout. Too, we have both Venus and Mercury forming chilly semi-squares to withholding Saturn, so it may be harder for us to convincingly woo others over, especially if we display, or have displayed in the past, too much insensitivity to their needs.

“The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved by only the most delicate handling. Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.” Henry David Thoreau

News Update: With the sports-ruling Aries Moon applying to an exact opposition to censoring Saturn, in diplomatic Libra, the NYT.com is reporting (12:10 pm EST) that school officials at Penn State are supposedly planning an exit strategy for football coach, Joe Paterno, in wake of the shocking sex abuse scandal that has rocked that college in the last few days. The NYT.com says that this information comes from “two people briefed on conversations among the university’s top officials.” Paterno’s departure could reportedly come within days or weeks, according to the sources.

Too, looking further at this particular story through an astrological lens, we also have the purging, transforming Scorpio Sun forming that destabilizing aspect to disruptive Uranus in Aries today (Scorpio rules sexual matters). Also, in the backdrop, we still have the dissolving, disillusioning Mars in Leo opposition to Neptune, with Neptune the planet that is formally linked with scandal and innuendo.

Also, the WSJ.com is reporting this afternoon that Italy’s President, Silvio Berlusconi, will be stepping down after the 2012 budget is approved. He reportedly lost his majority in Parliament. Berlusconi has been a very controversial, colorful political leader, to say the least.
