July 10, 2017 (Julian 191) Mars square Eris

First, let us dispense with the more ordinary aspects of the day.  The Moon is past full and now waning.  Some still count it as full, but it is void of course in Capricorn (possibly the most useless void imaginable), but moves into Aquarius slightly past midnight CDT.  Frankly, we would declare the lunation as “over” by the time this sign change occurs.

What dominates?  Others have discussed the Sun opposite Pluto.  That will have perfected by the time you read this, but it does have an influence and can provide energy to accomplish useful work IF power struggles and spats and altercations and such (oh, my!) can be avoided.  Mercury sesquiquadrate Saturn COULD also be viewed as “annoying,” but we agree with others who interpret it as giving many of us the focus to pay attention to important details that might be overlooked.

We have become increasingly interested in higher order (fifth harmonic (quintiles) and seventh harmonic (septiles)) aspects and also interactions of outer planet (or “generational”) bodies.  This includes asteroids and distant objects such as Sedna.

Mars squares Eris today.  Similar to Sedna, Eris is a distant object, but it is typically associated with chaos, sometimes massive chaos.  With Mars square Eris today, and likely creating a T-Square with Pluto, we think today, and maybe this week, could be another dangerous one.  We urge you to be careful.

But, again, beyond the danger (if you can stay safe), chances are good that you might can accomplish things today beyond your ordinary abilities.  And if you do not accomplish, then you will make definitive discoveries as to exactly what the roadblocks are.

Clear winners and clear losers emerge today.  Sun opposite Jupiter is usually benevolent, but with retrograde season present and this being part of the Sun(+Uranus)-Jupiter-Pluto T-Square “things” can become “big” and “things” can be “blown out of proportion.”  We may be on the edge of a war, a real “hot” war, and this configuration indicates that is a very real possibility, especially with the Venus (Retrograde in Pisces) / Saturn (Retrograde in Sagittarius) square perfecting tomorrow.  See, also, our commentary from Election Day 2016, particular Part 3 in which I predict that a “hot” war is coming (but not as “hot” with Donald Trump as it would have been with Hillary Clinton).

So, what does this mean for most of us in practical day to day terms?  Superb opportunities can be had today, but be careful not to overindulge (too much food, too much spending, too much booze, or too much of anything else).  Saturn (Retrograde) perfects a triseptile to Vesta, so we have an opportunity from an insight regarding some old karma related to church and faith (or “higher thought” or “foreign affairs” or “higher education”) and family (or oceans! or fluids of some kind if you are a chemist).

With a waxing moon in Virgo, some of us can take on home reorganization projects.  That is a VERY good use of our time and energy today!  Today CAN be a fun day, so point it in that direction.
