The Sun is coming into a trine with Uranus, and Mercury into conjunction with Jupiter. Lots of bang, pop, whizz, and lots of fire coming through in the next few days!
Here's what to watch for:
* Electric ideas
* Breakthrough moments
* Discovery and innovation
* Unconventional but exciting conversations or communication
* Boasting, loud, exaggerated thoughts, ideas, and opinions
* A rallying cry
* A surge of enthusiasm and "can do optimism."
* Ignited, stimulated, lit up
* Overcharged, overheated, and melting down
* Punk rockers and political pundits
* Announcements meant to shock, stir, incite
* Shocking revelations
* Speed, originality, breaking barriers or limits,
* Zealous and exaggerated
* Brilliant, bright, and unexpected
With Mercury in its detriment in Sagittarius, there is a possibility for critical thinking to go right out the window right now, but on the flip side, the heavens are also giving us a picture of brilliance and enlightenment, of sudden and rapid awakening.
The other shadow side of this transit is the almost manic and "strung out" quality of Sun/Uranus when combined with Mercury/Jupiter, which could easily devolve into a kind of ridiculous level of confidence and ego.
The next 48 hours should be fun to watch, and just think, if you put yourself in a spiritual environment right now, even if it's just taking more time for your spiritual life in the privacy of your own home, the chances of having a truly enlightening experience would seem to increase!
Meanwhile, I am now just 110 backers away from my final target goal of 360 backers by the end of the year. We're making great progress with just 12 days remaining. Help me finish strong and pitch in to support this content in 2019!
Prayer: Touch us with a spark of your intelligence. Make our breakthrough the way we hold our breakthroughs. So that they might build into a mighty fire of divine love.
The first quarter Moon is in Capricorn today. Meanwhile Mercury is applying to a conjunction with Jupiter and square with Mars.
Here's what to watch for:
* As Mercury just moved into the sign of the scales and entered into a conjunction with Jupiter and square with Mars we are seeing major pieces of information, news, and media being used as political weapons before the upcoming election in the US. Perhaps the safest thing we can about these Mercurial disclosures, leaks, and carefully timed media attacks is that they represent a kind of leveling of the scales. They are careful and political pieces of information (Mercury in Libra), that reveal something more of the truth while simultaneously demanding some measure of justice or public reckoning(Jupiter in Libra), but they are also controlled attacks (Mars in Capricorn) that are being deliberately made in order to conquer an opponent (also Mars in Capricorn).
Translating this into our personal lives, look at the Libra and Capricorn ruled areas of your chart and see if you notice any similar themes taking place in those areas of your life. Or just generally take note of any attempts you are making to enact some measure of justice or fairness, retribution or revenge. Notice any theme of competition or the measures you're taking to win in some area of your life right now, or notice where important pieces of information or communication are taking place and see if you notice the desire to posture, spin, pivot, or turn the results or perceptions to somehow benefit yourself.
* With Mercury and Jupiter in Libra square to Mars we should also expect to see things like increased negotiating, deal making, earning power, marketing, leveraging, and positioning. We should be mindful of the tendency for vanity or the look of things to beat out the actual quality of things, and we should also be on the lookout for deals being made to pay off debts or to settle or opt out of something that is no longer serving us.
* Mercury/Jupiter/Mars may also signify fierce, prideful, boastful, political, religious, and philosophical debates, argumentation and competition in general. Don't be easily goaded into a fight that is only about vanity and appearances anyway.
Prayer: Teach us discrimination and discernment, and show us the difference between a manipulated appearance and the actual essence of things.
