Where’s the fire? Well, there isn’t any. That’s the problem.
Have you looked at the sky? All the planets and both the luminaries are currently in Earth, Water and Air signs. In case you’re interested, here’s the break-up:
Air = Sun, Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron
Earth = Moon, Pluto, NN, Mercury, Venus and Saturn
Water = Mars and Uranus
The Moon is cruising through Capricorn right now and will have to go through Aquarius and Pisces before it enters Aries on 4 October, 2009. Thank God for that! I don’t think I can survive without Fire for too long. No other element gives a zest for life like Fire does.
It’s the same with people. Because of my natal Water moon, when it comes to romance, I tend to gravitate towards the water signs. And my Taurus and Virgo planets can’t enough admire the dependable Earth signs. But I adore my Fire sign friends. Yes, they’re loud and raucous. A bit over-the-top and damnably self-involved. But they’re so alive. Things light up when a Fire sign is around. Which probably explains their popularity.
Right now with nothing in Fire, we have a very unbalanced sky. I don’t know how it is for you, but for me there’s something missing. It’s the joie de vivre that Fire bestows. But don’t lose hope, I got some good news. Mars moves into Leo on 17 October, 2009. Woo-hoo! I think. Because it stays in Leo for almost eight months! Till early June, 2010. Which ought to be good for Aries and Sagittarius. But I wonder how it’ll play out the fixed signs, especially people with personal planets in the last decanate of Leo, Scorpio and Taurus. With Jupiter Neptune and Chiron hanging out in the third decanate of Aquarius, it hasn’t been easy for the Lion, the Scorpion or the Bull. What happens when you add Mars to the mix? I don’t know, but it won’t be dull!
