Other Planetary Influences
In addion to the Sun and Moon being opposite each other, we have several other planets in opposition. This may be causing internal conflict and strife. It’s human nature to gravitate toward what is normal and familar, yet that’s not how to grow and evolve. The oppositions are creating choices between where you’ve been and where you’re going.
