Your Daily Astrology for Thursday, May 8, 2014 by Eric Francis
The Moon enters Virgo Thursday at 2:24 am EDT, and soon after forms an opposition (180 degree aspect) to centaur planet Nessus — which is one of those not-so-subtle newer discoveries similar to Chiron. Centaur planets add intensity to any equation, and Moon opposite Nessus may feel like anything from a restless night to anxiety to gaining clarity into an emotional situation. Through Friday, the Moon opposes Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, describing a confrontation between the emotional and the rational; between what makes no sense and what supposedly makes perfect sense. The dynamic may express itself in your environment — or in your inner space. Then as mentioned yesterday, Venus is moving into an opposition to Mars, creating more tension, though one wrinkle is that Mars is retrograde. In this equation, Venus is definitely the more assertive or aggressive planet. One reason that’s true is that Mars is at the end of a long retrograde. It’s not ready to express itself fully yet; we will learn a lot more when Mars stations direct May 19. This opposition may represent another example of a face-off or stand-off, or the image of a ‘war between the sexes’. Yet there’s a question implied in both of these aspect patterns — are the seeming opposites really opposite? Not if you consider everything from its seemingly mirror point of view. Though this may be the last thing you’d think of, it’ll be worth the effort. You’ll discover things that ease your social and professional interactions, and that ease your mind.
