Mercury in Leo is square to Uranus in Taurus today...
Here's what to watch for:
* A conversation that should be peaceful and easy by nature, oddly disruptive, electric, eclectic
* Sudden ideas, remarks, outbursts
* Technology snafus
* An original idea
* Electric intellects
* A sudden and unexpected piece of news or information
* A shocking announcement
* A controversial statement
* Communication that is striking, honest, and possibly defiant
* Fast, clever, witty, surprising words
* Technology, progress, and the future
* Car, train, bus, airplane, transit accidents or injuries
* Sudden, explosive insights
* A conversation that cannot find a rhythm or beat
* The rebel, innovator, trickster
* Foot in mouth syndrome
The exciting part of Mercury's square to Uranus today is that we might experience a breakthrough, or we may find a new way of approaching an old problem. On the other hand, we should be careful of the pride and arrogance of the mind, of egos and the need to posture, defend, or prop up our egos against a perceived opposition.
It's amazing how things change when we let go of the following prized ideas: that I am the controller, that I am the proprietor, that I am right, that I have been harmed, that I am owed or entitled to something.
What kind of original thinking, what kind of original thoughts, may emerge when we have even just one moment of countering these presuppositions of our egos with something different?
I am not the controller...how can I serve the divine source of which I am a tiny, beautiful, important part?
Prayer: Please give us an original thought, and please teach us how to use it in service to you.
Mercury has just entered Leo and is moving into a square with Uranus in Taurus over the weekend.
Here are a few things to watch for:
* With Mercury squaring Uranus and also moving toward a broad opposition with Mars it's an easy time to catch "foot in mouth" syndrome. So be careful of that!
* Mercury square Uranus is fast thinking, a communicator of original ideas.
* Insights that come suddenly, unexpectedly, brilliantly, or disruptively.
* A breakthrough in a debate or dialogue.
* Sudden inspiration, and the feeling of needing to blurt something out, "Eureka!"
* Technology, progress, and inventiveness.
* Audacious proclamations.
* Boastful, proud, self-important thinking, speaking or communicating, surrounded by an aura of defiance.
* A truly unique way of saying or learning something.
* An unexpected technological breakdown.
* A newer, better way of thinking about something.
* Big ideas that won't pan out.
* Electrical/nervous impulses and stimulation.
* A sudden, rebellious choice or decision.
* Rapid, fast-moving developments that surprise, awaken, liberate, or change the status-quo.
This one perfects in the next 24 hours, so it's a fast-moving transit, but keep your eyes open for it!
Prayer: Be our first and last word, be our first and final thought, and surprise us with an uncommon intelligence.
