Mercury in Sagittarius joins the weekly aspect party Tuesday when it forms an opposition to Mars Retrograde in Gemini. Distraction can easily lead to accidents under these energies. Harshly judgmental stances or an nasty over competitiveness can take hold, creating discomfort and problems for those on the receiving end. Mean-spiritedness and petty fighting however rarely serve anyone in the long run. Those in a more positive state of being will however be able to take advantage of a midweek Mercury sextile with Saturn in Aquarius, which will help them find answers and solutions in difficult situations of all sorts. The Moon made its first transit of the week Tuesday when it moved from the Fixed Air of Aquarius to the Mutable Water of Pisces at 7:15 PM EST. This will take some of the edge off the after-effects of the hard early week Mercury/Mars opposition. Pay close attention to your dreams midweek, this is the last Pisces Moon in this year's Neptune Retrograde cycle. Sexual tension amps up Wednesday as Venus in Sagittarius opposes Mars in Gemini. Avoid impulse based choice-making now. While swiping left or right is simply a choice, swiping backward is rarely a good idea. It is always best to leave your more toxic relationship past back in the past. That being said, these Mars/Venus opposition energies can inspire some to make a move, and nothing ever happens in the sexual/romantic realm without somebody making a move. A Mercury in Sagittarius square with Neptune in Pisces however can create emotional discord in those not spiritually aligned which can cause them to create drama with others or instigate petty meaningless fights. In a more general sense miscommunication will create confusion now. Make sure you have your facts straight before moving forward and pay attention to the details of any offer or deal that comes up now. Venus in Sagittarius forms a sextile Saturn in Aquarius Thursday, which can be helpful in forming deeper commitments in the relationship area of life. Thursday at 11:41 PM EST the Moon transits into Aries. Aligned with the Sagittarius Fire Sun this Cardinal Fire Moon creates one of the great creation and creativity windows of Sagittarius Season 2022.
