Mercury flitting into my first house has increased the tendency of my brain to skitter all over the place hence today’s offering of astrological odds & ends.
The Moon, IC & cleaning house: I admit I’m no neat freak though I do like a clean house. My Libra Moon leans towards keeping things looking nice but with Pisces on the cusp of the fourth house I tend to sporadic bouts of deep cleaning. Because I’m serious about my cooking, my kitchen is very well maintained and I have a thing about clean bathrooms. However, those areas of the house I seldom spend time in can get ignored. Libra Moon is much better about keeping the public areas of the house clean and tidy.
So what has a greater influence? I’d say if you have a loaded fourth house, it will likely override your Moon and vice versa. With no planets in my fourth but Pisces’ ruler Neptune conjunct my Moon, it does explain why I can dive in and deep clean an untended corner in my house whilst ignoring other more obvious piles of stuff. A dear Pisces friend used to happily clean her closets and be oblivious to the dust bunnies collecting under the furniture in the living room. My progressed Moon is in Pisces right now and probably why my cleaning habits are sliding in that direction.
Venus & Appearance: I took advantage of the Mercury-Venus sextile harmoniously aspecting my Ascendant yesterday to highlight my hair. It came out beautifully! The longer I track these transits, the more I see it is favorable Venus transits to the Ascendant with the best track record for great results when it comes to improving the appearance. Makes sense, doesn’t it? By the way, by doing it myself it only costs me $8 . . . instead of $70+. Pluto transiting the second house like that!
Sun conjunct Saturn in Scorpio this week: The couple of days when this aspect was strongest had the effect of markedly reducing my inner “noise”. So far I have no complaints about Saturn in Scorpio. It seems to be having a positive impact on my stress levels unlike Saturn in Libra which produced plenty of angst.
Next week starts off with the Taurus Full Moon, nice! However I do want to give my Libra readers a head’s up for the latter half of the week . . . Venus in Libra will be hitting the Uranus-Pluto square. It will first oppose Uranus, then square Pluto. What might happen is a brief uptick in angst and animosities possibly due to jealousy among other things. Those folks with personal planets and/or ASC from 5° to 7° in the cardinal signs will be most affected.
Have a great time this weekend!© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
