Today the Moon will trine Jupiter and then oppose Saturn and then the Sun. Meanwhile, Mercury is coming closer to a conjunction with Pluto and its retrograde.
You might notice:
* An increasing sense of paranoia, or that something hidden, secretive, or lurking below the surface is about to emerge, reveal itself, explode, or pull the rug out from under you. Mercury’s application toward Pluto as well as the fact that it is slowing down create a kind of ominous, foreboding, gravity. It could be nothing, or everything, probably somewhere in-between. Look at the Capricorn ruled house of your birth chart and look for planets at the 15/16 degrees of cardinal signs in your birth chart to see what this approaching retrograde might be indicating. Generally speaking, it’s likely that we will see the archetype of the messenger meeting with the transformative forces of the underworld. What will emerge collectively and personally?
* Remember that this upcoming retrograde also has an aura of excitement surrounding it due to the simultaneous square to the Jupiter/Uranus opposition. We might be revisiting something with an eye for revolution and innovation or breakthrough. We might find that something from the past is surfacing, speaking, and revealing something for the distinct purpose of rapidly transforming our understanding and allowing for emancipation, liberation, invention, success, victory, and again, revolution via revision.
* Today’s full Moon also points toward an ongoing attempt to bring Jupiter and Saturn together into an agreement of some kind. The Full Moon isn’t an auspicious sign for bringing the two planets together but rather may indicate the particular difficulties, limitations, setbacks, delays, or hardships we are navigating en route to trying to set the foundation for a new vision, future ideal, project, or relationship. The important thing to remember is that the second half of this cycle may very well signify a series of events that effectively blow open the doors that have been shut or the limitations we’ve been struggling with.
* The fact that the Moon is applying to a trine with Jupiter today, even as the Moon is moving into the challenging intensity of the Full Moon, shouldn’t be lost on us. Today is a good day for progress, but don’t let your optimism, hope, enthusiasm, or good news be exposed indiscriminately. Whatever goodness Jupiter might bring into the mix just be careful not to cast your pearl or act impulsively with what is given. Be content with small gains and small accumulation toward your goals right now. We are on the precipice of some bigger developments in the next few weeks, so it’s important to keep our “shit together,” and not react to the good or the bad.
Prayer: Help us keep our shit together.
