If you have something important to do or say, make haste early because the Gemini Moon goes void-of-course/voc* at 6:55 a.m. Once past that time, the day has a “hurry up and wait” quality to it if you want to get something in motion.
Time is better spent enjoying young people and/or in the exchange of ideas. Curl up with a good book, watch a flick or visit with friends. Exploring your neighborhood can be fun, depending on the weather. Just don’t expect to find a specific something: serendipity rules. Venus enters Aquarius for its stint in the sign of “unusual” attractions; if this is your comfort zone, expect a few weeks of stimulating activity. If not, you may find yourself in some unusual settings or spend time with extraordinary people.
A Sun/Pluto picture in the early evening suggests that some may want to inflict their will on another. Examples of this are a petulant child who determines the fate of the family’s evening or an employer whose demands derail leisure plans. Whatever the situation, it does not have to suck you into it, if you can wait it out. The odds are with the voc* that nothing is as tenacious as it may seem.
To give you an idea of how powerful pictures can fizzle under a void-of-course* moon, Ronald Reagan was known as the “Teflon president” because scandals and bad press never seemed to stick. He preferred to hold press conferences when the moon was void-of-course/voc* due to the advice of his wife’s astrologer, Joan Quigley. Of course, if you have a natal point in your horoscope that is getting hit by Pluto, then you cannot duck this experience. People with strong Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra points may feel the impact regardless.
The Moon enters Cancer at 8:08 p.m. when the overall mood may well be that “there is no place like home”. Nagging chores may disrupt an urge to unwind, but as long as they’re related to the hearth, a sense of recharge may follow.
We are the day before the Full Moon, so an impulse to finish may thwart sleep. Tasks of particular focus include those related to how the work buoys the home. Work and career ideally is in balance with your emotional well and security. More about this tomorrow.
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Gemini, conversations can be particularly misunderstood; avoid important correspondence or phone calls. Gather information. Listen. Great time to clean out old emails and tidy up your desktop.
