Sagittarius Waxing Crescent Moon – 15 STEPS
I’m sure you’re all familiar with that frenzied feeling of being late for something important you may not even want to do, or needing to be focused and studious under less than confident circumstances, or maybe even feeling as though, at any minute, the metaphorical tray you’re holding in the palm of your nondominant hand is carrying one too many saucers balancing cups with too much of something that doesn’t even make sense?
This may be where you are today. Frenzied, for a feeling you’re not even otherwise invested in, or present for, or, furthermore— driven by.
Today’s moon was moving forward from a conjunction with Saturn this morning, extending your responsibilities from being one thing to quite another altogether, even if only for the day.
Maybe something demanded your attention or undivided focus immediately, and immediately, as the moon continued moving away from Saturn, a square aspect naturally formed to Chiron. The seriousness of whatever added pressures you find yourself among today may also add a sense of offensiveness in some way, like a very tightly adhered bandage being ripped away from the wound prematurely. Or, perhaps, something you did was metaphorically equivalent to something just as painful and unexpected, and equally obtuse.
Either way, hurt feelings could be surfaced, and the still lingering feeling of lack, frenzy, or disinterest, which ultimately does not kindly aid in the assuagement of the matter only recently delivered.
Today may be easier if left alone, if possible, or circumstances may arrange it so for you. Or maybe, for you, low energy could be a culprit, despite the Jupiterian influence of resiliency upon the moon. Resiliency being an ability to readily recover from anything— be it an illness, or an emotional wound… and this, along with Chiron’s influence, make me question whether the hindrance today is one of long-held repression or resentment rather than a fresh and minor cut to the ego. Sagittarius is one to quickly shake it off and say gratefully, “better luck next time.”
It might not be as simple today.
If twelve steps is the norm, today will require fifteen.
This said, if you continue to choose to repress whatever is bothering you, the Sagittarian happy-go-lucky attitude may turn sinister and, well… passive-aggressive.
Then, later today, a square to Mars, almost challenges you to express yourself in wilful, aggressive, or outwardly dramatic and passively-aggressive ways. Fun.
When the moon squares Mars, it’s ordinarily motivating, and action-driven, but if you’ve read my recent post regarding Mars in Libra, you’ll understand the dilemma here, so, a combative or emotional reaction may battle, and win, over a more mature and logical response, especially if you’re wounded and cannot find the power of resiliency to protect you.
Or, as I suggested before, today may just be another day, but a day you’re overwhelmed, emotionally stunted, blocked, or volatile, and searching for an outlet, be it an argument, an outburst, or an exhausted collapse into much needed sleep.
And finally, just before midnight on the west coast, the moon will ingress into Capricorn… likely adding a heaviness and seriousness to the reflection of your day, especially harsh if you have reason to feel guilt or shame.
