Mars Enters Scorpio

“Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic…” Van Morrison, Into the Mystic
Life may indeed be feeling more mystical as we head into Friday’s Full Moon in Pisces on 8/31. Today Mars enters its home sign of Scorpio and sextiles the Sun in Virgo. These aspects bode well for an energized start – particularly one which involves pragmatic details and planning for creative or spiritual endeavors and projects. It is a good time to harness the energy and move forward.
Neptune will oppose the Sun at the time of the Full Moon and there can be a certain nebulous quality to our mundane perceptions  now  – as if we tumbled down the rabbit hole with Alice – or as if life itself is playing sleight of hand tricks upon us.  This influence is transitory.
