1st thing this Morning, the Capricorn Moon conjoins Pluto and there is a serious, get down to business tone that starts this day. Its grounding and powerful and it sextiles the Sun/Ceres conjunction. So look for resources to make workable changes to some long range plan and find constructive ways to express your inner authority, while embracing compassion all around.
A lunar square to Uranus in Aries ( just after noon time) could introduce a revolutionary approach to that plan and it may be worth considering… as long as it doesn’t take you too off course.
I need to correct a mistake from yesterday… I said Mercury was at the master degree -29- and that actually becomes exact today, so although we were close enough to feel it (which is often the case in astrology), technically it is today around 2:00 PM.
Mercury and Mars are both at 29 degrees now and they are forming a stepping-stone (square) that invites the body and the mind to work together in a more elevated way. These kinds of aspects are frequently experienced as tension and friction when we don’t get out in front of them with conscious responding instead of re-acting.
Mars has a lot to do with our will and how we move forward into action, Mercury represents our intellect, thought patterns and our communication skills.. our minds. Think of any friction or tension that might arise now, as a stimulus for an opportunity to grow. Remember that Mars is in his pre-retrograde shadow right now and all the territory he navigates from mid February to mid April will be revisited for a total of 3 times. We would be wise to pay attention to what is getting stirred up today… because it’s likely to be a theme of the next 6 months.
This energy can be used constructively to communicate our truth in a direct fashion, while allowing others the same process, but know that the shadow side of this can turn heated and swiftly take us into button pushing territory, where the gloves come off. The Master degree of 29 is a strong indication that we can evolve tremendously in what ever experience shows up… so stay awake!
