Bouncing out of bed with enthusiasm or all riled up about something this morning — which will it be? The opinionated Sagittarius Moon is challenged by steaming Mars in Pisces at 10:28AM ET, which sets the tone for the day and then immediately goes void-of-course. Go with the energetic flow, find a way to expand your horizons and get ready for a wave of “make it happen” energy once Moon enters enterprising Capricorn at 7:14PM ET.
Tomorrow should be busy, busy, busy — with planets figuratively bouncing off one another like a pinball machine. In fact the whole rest of the week offers excellent productivity, in that Mercury retrograde REstructure, REview, REorganize, RE anything way. We are in the dark side of the Moon — the end of the lunar cycle — good for bringing projects to completion. I was delighted to see the idea of completion and fulfillment echoed in the weekly Tarot card pulled and posted on Beth Owlsdaughter’s well-written blog.
And now, the news. We were talking about the idealism suggested by Mercury’s blinding hook-up with the Sun (exact yesterday), and a reader sent in this video that’s been spreading like wildfire. It’s quite simple: a status quo-disrupting wake-up call, true to the ever-present hum of the revolutionary square between Uranus and Pluto (from now through 2015). It shatters idealism with a hand from heavy Saturn in nitty-gritty Scorpio.The video is about wealth distribution in America — how people think it should be shared in an ideal world; how they believe it is being shared currently; and how it really is being shared. Can you handle the truth?
Check it out, and be advised that when you come across a horoscope with Sun conjunct Mercury you’re likely dealing with an idealist — someone who sees things the way he or she needs to (perhaps as a survival strategy), but who may not be willing or able to acknowledge harsh realities. I learned that from astrologer Noel Tyl. Thank you, Noel!
Shall we look at few lighter news items that reflect current planetary patterns? OK! We’ve got six planets floating through Pisces right now (if you include Chiron), and this dreamy concentration can be oh-so hard to pin down. I’ve gotten plenty of email noting how slooooooow things feel right now — like watching fish swim in a goldfish bowl — or herding cats, as I noted last week. Things WILL pick up — and quickly, as we will may see as early as the next week’s New Moon. Meanwhile, here’s a story about efforts to herd cats that is going on right now in New York. These folks are so in tune with the cosmos…
Finally, perfectly reflecting the sugary sweetness suggested by yesterday’s square between Venus and Jupiter, would you believe this charming and eloquent post showed up in my Facebook feed about — wait for it — the importance of owning a candy dish.
Mercury retrograde is an excellent time to REview your life in a personal astro-logical consultation. Mercury turns direct on March 17th.
