“No one has a problem with the first mile of a journey. Even an infant could do fine for a while. But it isn’t the start that matters. It’s the finish line.” Julien Smith

We are officially wrapping up the “first Virgo Moon period” of the new year, this morning. The Moon leaves “problem-solving” Virgo for “diplomatic” Libra, at 9:59 am. The Virgo Moon is also “void-of-course” today, so it is perhaps best to attend to, or finish up, any ongoing tasks while the Moon is still deposited in this sign. Then, when it cascades into “graceful” Libra, we are cosmically cleared to undertake new endeavors. Libra, the sign of the other, centers our attention on the relationship realm, and balancing the needs of self with the needs of others.

The Libra Moon’s only aspect today is a square, late tonight, to Venus, its planetary ruler (11:12 pm), which is presently in “traditional” Capricorn. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is exalted in Libra, so really there is quite a bit of agreement or natural flow between Venus in Capricorn and the Moon in Libra, even though the square aspect can sometimes coincide with some friction, inner restlessness, or feelings of awkwardness. Generally, Moon-Venus aspects tend to bring out our social side, so if we’re still up, at this hour, we may want to be around people we like, doing things we enjoy. It may also be a time when we seriously ponder, journal, or discuss the nature of our relationships and how they are fitting in with our long-term plans or goals for our self.

“We have to recognise that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.” Cornel West
