Astrology of the Day – Moon in Aquarius - Friday 24th November 2017

The Moon is in Aquarius today, the sign of rational thought and innovation. There is a sceptical feeling today with the Moon in this sign. Aquarius and Aquarians will always challenge any concept to prove it's validity and worth, they never take anything on face value until they have themselves worked out why something is as it is, and once that has been ascertained, they will never change their point of view. The need today then is to ask questions in order to get answers. The Aquarian Moon is friendly and sociable, yet it keeps it's distance. It likes to network and connect and there is an inclusive feel here too, not discriminating against race, colour or creed. We are the sum of the parts, we are a whole, and yet everyone is an individual within that whole.

There is a lovely balance as we start the day with the Sun in Sagittarius exactly sextile to the Moon in Aquarius, our cool emotions marry well with the open and expansive and adventurous Sun. We can explore the possibilities of the day in an almost scientific manner. The Moon then progresses on to make a square to Jupiter, the ruler of the Sagittarius and the scientific and technical exploration theme goes on. There is a sense of investigation too to the deepest and darkest corner of any situation you can imagine with Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio, we want to search, to go deeper and father today and we do this with clarity and with ice cold composure.

All the while while this is going on we have two other aspect closing in. Mercury is now making a conjunction with Saturn, an aspect that will dominate the weekend. Mercury in Sagittarius wants to see the big picture, but Saturn is the planet of limitation, and we are honing the information that we are taking in to just that which we need. There is a process of sorting out the wheat from the chaff going on here, eliminating anything superfluous and unnecessary, we can appreciate the scale of the situation, but we can also focus just on what is most important.

Jupiter and Neptune are forming a trine aspect now, with Neptune having just turned direct in the past couple of days. This is another aspect of exploring, but one of using our imaginations to the fullest extent. Normally this is one of dreaming and going on a spiritual or creative journey, indeed this is an escapist connection, one where normally we can run away from our demons and hide, but with the Aquarian Moon square to Jupiter questioning our motives, and the Saturn Mercury conjunction holding our minds to account, this particular journey is being controlled and directed. We can only go in the direction that is best for us, and we will be forced, whether we like it or not, to face up to our problems and worries head on.

In a way, being told to face reality is a good thing, and today and over this weekend, the question of we want or would like to believe in pitted directly against the cold stark reality of where we are now, and what is best for our current situation, is a question that all of us will have consider, and answer...
