Libra Disseminating Moon
—February 20

Today’s moon will square Venus and Mars, which are moving at opposite ends of the twentieth degree of Capricorn, very early in the morning, here on the west coast*… suggesting that your inner balance or emotional equilibrium is being challenged somewhat by your own chosen motivations.

This degree of Capricorn that Venus and Mars are moving through associates itself with ‘shared endeavors’, with teamwork, sharing and cooperation… and it is at this point that you may really and actually begin to fully acknowledge on a much deeper level just how much help, or assistance, or aide, or support—however you wish to refer to it—you really do require.

And this is admirable—especially for you self-starters and do-it-yourselfers… truly—perhaps even more impressive (if you ask me, which, I fully realize—you’re not…)

This degree may also even connect the potential dots between concepts or theories of independence and selfishness—whether it’s accurate or not, understand—simply because these energies are so strongly advocating and supporting and rewarding collaborative efforts, particularly while the moon remains in Libra… even if self-sufficiency is the ‘right’ thing to do, or you decide it is, or might be.

Should these details provoke upset—remember to relax, summon your charms, and delineate all the noise down to the essential, underlying tone… and there may be a bit of noise—noise that is disturbing, unsettling, or otherwise unbalancing in some way.

I get it—it may be easier said than done.

Further, it may be immensely supportive to center yourself, realign, and remember who you are, and listen to your own inner voice… ‘to hold your own; let other people know where [you] stand; or clear the air by exposing hidden motives…’

These, of course, are what?—these are decisions.

These are decisions that you can make for yourself, though a Libran moon can entertain endless predicaments or distractions in an effort to avoid…

I get it.


Perhaps this is the way you can implement your self-sufficiency and inner need for independence?—as you integrate your own particular reflection of uniqueness within the collectivity of a collaboration through the awesomeness of ‘dynamic interchange’… and you can still entertain the distractions and predicaments.

Win, win.

Ultimately, today is about inner balance… and recognizing yourself both before and within the flock.

The lives of happy people are dense with their own doings—crowded, active, thick… but the sorrowing are nomads, on a plain with few landmarks and no boundaries; sorrow’s horizons are vague and its demands are few.❞
——Larry McMurtry
