We start out the gate, this Monday, with the Waxing, First Quarter Moon in the self-improvement sign of Virgo, until early tonight (at 8:28 pm), when it will then shift into balancing Libra. The Virgo Moon also goes VOC, this morning (at 8:01 am). Generally, the Virgo Moon is a good time to be purposeful and productive and to focus on tasks that require attention to detail and discipline. As to how we can be most productive, Dale Carnegie once insightfully advised: “Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.”
The curious Sun in Gemini is also quinqunx to taskmaster Saturn Rx in Capricorn today (at 5:03 am), suggesting we are harboring some possible angst about our (past) worldly accomplishments now, including maybe even second-guessing ourselves? Or, possibly it is something else that is red flagging or dogging us now (if we are feeling out of sorts), that also has us maybe thinking about security or scarcity issues. Whatever the complicated, twisted scenario, a smart, savvy power play for us now might be to simply hit the pause button. Give ourselves some time to restoratively breathe again, and to sensibly sort things out. Maybe we are (or have been) going down the wrong road path(s), as of late (for one reason or the other), and we now need to simply modify or re-arrange our fetching designer thinking caps on our heads so we can boogie on back to our drawing boards, in style.
Lastly, we also have the Gemini Sun making a formal opposition to Santa Claus Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius, later this morning (11:27 am). Ironically, what Saturn takes away, Jupiter often tries its best to copiously bring back, ten-fold! This expansive Sun-Jupiter energy, while it can bring us some exciting goodies (opportunities) today – and hopefully it will – it can also make us more inclined to overreach (or to put more on our plates than we will ever be able to consume or use). Unfortunately, having too much of even the “good things” in life can lead, eventually, to inner feelings of powerlessness, as we can begin to fractionalize our energies that way (and that can also quickly lead to extra stress and/or burn-out). Since Jupiter is also Rx now, it could be that we are being shown today where we have already taken on too much of a load, etc., and now we are seeing that we need to let some of it go. Something which the detoxifying Virgo Moon, and minimalist Saturn in Cappie, can both gladly, and most assuredly, help us out with!

On This Day in History: On June 10, 1966, Janis Joplin’s first live concert was held in Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco.
Joplin (b. 1/19/43) had transiting Saturn in creative Pisces exactly sextile to her Capricorn Sun, that day (often a time of notable career success, when we are rewarded for our past efforts). Assertive, energizing Mars was also in Gemini and exactly trine to her natal Mercury in inventive Aquarius (a period when we usually feel much more like relating and communicating with others, and a time when our speech and words flow much more freely – excellent for being on stage).
“On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people, then I go home alone.” Janis Joplin

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of Oz’ very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I’ve spent my entire life trying to get over it.” Judy Garland
