With the North Node of the Moon at the very first degree of Leo, we’re called to act from the heart, with inspiration and enthusiasm. Yet the planets (including ‘dwarf’ planets) and asteroids are all Water, Earth, or Air elements - no Fire anywhere.
Not until midweek when Mercury enters Sagittarius will we have Fire in the sky, and Mercury - who’s about to retrograde in a couple of weeks - isn’t the best at handling the mutable Sagittarian energy.
Today’s Cancer Moon could pull us towards home. Everyday activities like cooking a nice meal can be infused with a little extra creativity, thanks to a lunar trine to Neptune. It could be a nice evening to snuggle up on the couch, or go out for a nice meal with your partner.
Yet somewhere inside you’re likely to feel something is missing. A bit of spice, perhaps, or maybe some drama. Quite possibly it’s passion that’s absent. With all of these, it’s bring your own to this celestial party.
In fact, some of us - maybe Fire signs or those with lots or little Fire in their charts - may be trying to import spirit with spirits - an approach that works well for a short time, but can’t make up for genuine spiritedness.
Light some candles, burn incense or diffuse essential oils. If you have a fireplace, light it up. Enjoy cooking and otherwise dealing with fire.
With no Fire in the sky and Venus retrograde, it may seem like love, romance, and relationship in general is on hold, and indeed it is for many of us. Transformation is occurring on a deep level, but we can’t see where things are headed. Take heart - this damp and cool period for partnership won’t last much longer. AD
