The moon continues its journey through fiery Aries while forming an alliance to healing asteroid Chiron this morning. The energy here should help you recharge your batteries, allowing you to take on the day feeling refreshed.
Unfortunately, you could feel a little overwhelmed as action planet Mars faces off with expansive Jupiter. Your ambition is high, but remember that you don’t have to take on every task simultaneously in order to be successful. Trying to take care of too many things at once could lead to mistakes that will be hard to recover from later. Don’t worry, though, this energy won’t last all day.
A significant shift occurs this afternoon when Mars moves into efficient Virgo, adding an element of organization to our lives. If you feel like you’ve been a bit messy with your goals and responsibilities recently, now would be a good time to sit down and map out a to-do list.
You may also find that you’re more focused on being healthier in the coming weeks as you look for ways to improve your endurance. Keep in mind that staying committed to a regular eating, exercise, and sleeping schedule can go a long way toward elevating your energy level.
There is a playful energy in the air as the day comes to a close, so go ahead and let down your hair and have some fun!
Mars arrives in Virgo this afternoon, completing a dramatic shift in the landscape. We should be prepared to forgive ourselves for any missteps as we make the necessary adjustments to deal with the shifts. Mars completes an opposition to Jupiter just before arriving in Virgo. We are likely to be very clear on the need for personal responsibility which will help to curb any impatience. Mars in Virgo insists on logic and practicality, curbing the Leo Sun’s desire to keep the show going. However, creativity and innovative solutions that also show the necessary elements of practicality will quickly gain favor in this atmosphere. As well, idealistic intentions will not be enough to pass muster unless we are willing to show a clear commitment to demonstrate our ideals with integrity and action.

Pushing too hard or rushing to leave others in the dust is not the way of Turtle Spirit, even if it seems at times it is the way of the world. Turtle Spirit wants you to remember that you are a human being not a human doing.
In the protection position, Turtle Spirit is giving you the message that the best thing to do right now is let go of the drive to compete or control and do more; instead, simply be.
As an old Norse saying goes, “We do without doing and everything gets done.” Spirit conspires on your behalf, so slow to a crawl or even stop, releasing any fear that life is a race that you might be losing.
Trust that peace, prosperity, love, and purpose are all yours to enjoy right now. Do not “do.” Simply be.
