Note your dreams this morning, as intuitive Neptune hooks up with an equally intuitive Moon in Pisces in the wee hours ET. The pleasant connection between Venus and expansive Jupiter noted in Monday’s forecast happens at 5:16AM ET; hopefully you will use it to glide through the day. A communicative connection between Moon and perspicacious Pluto around 12PM ET can help clear the air without biting anyone’s head off. A stable connection to Moon from Saturn at 7:46PM ET keeps it all grounded in your version of reality.
If you’re going to put something up for auction, doing it just before a harmonious connection between Venus (money, art) and Jupiter is not a bad strategy. A one-of-a-kind postage stamp just sold at Sotheby’s for $9.5 million — and yes, that’s a record. Meanwhile, I’ve been meaning to share this item from the weekend. On Sunday, retrograde Mercury (mindset) returned to the beginning of Cancer (motherhood). Add to this pattern Friday’s stern challenge between Venus (women, social expression) and Saturn, and Saturday’s potentially volatile charge between Mars (aggression/action) and ruthless Pluto. What hits the NYT homepage? “Mother’s Mind” — a two-part series on maternal mental illness. Here’s part one; here’s part two. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Let’s end with something light. Thanks to Leslie, the reader who kindly forwarded me this must-have item for anyone “feeling wobbly, forgetful, and introverted during this Mercury retrograde cycle”. Of course it would be rose-colored…
