Mercury’s trine to Neptune at 4:43am PDT/ 5:43am MDT/ 6:43am CDT/ 7:43am EDT helps open our minds to possibilities. Ideally, this aspect stirs our imagination, and we may be able to apply it to practical matters creatively.
However, Mercury opposes Saturn at 7:01am PDT/ 8:01am MDT/ 9:01am CDT/ 10:01am EDT and forms a quincunx to Jupiter, pointing to some reluctance or blockage related to our communications or transportation. We may face some criticism or delays, or perhaps challenges to our opinions, ideas, or intelligence. Circumstances are such that we may need to tone down our enthusiasm if our plans are lacking, and favor thinking in more practical, realistic terms. We may be struggling with decisions as we flip-flop between alternatives.
Jupiter’s square to Neptune at 8:43am PDT/ 9:23am MDT/ 10:23am CDT/ 11:23am EDT is the second of three, the first of which happened in January, and the final one will occur in September. This influence suggests a struggle with our expectations, faith, and dreams. We’re easily misled whether by others or by our own unrealistic or inflated expectations. We may need to deal with the consequences of disorganization, extravagance, neglect, or exaggeration. The tendency for restlessness magnifies, and routine seems to be particularly unsatisfying now. We need to watch for a tendency to evade and avoid things, as well as for writing ourselves new beliefs or philosophies that justify this avoidance. There can be a lot of wandering, meandering, and lack of groundedness happening with this influence. We might have troubles setting boundaries for ourselves. Spiritual inspiration is a potential, however, as we shed false beliefs, expectations, and paths.
Step away from anything that seems unrealistic and deceptive at 12:11pm PDT/ 1:11pm MDT/ 2:11pm CDT/ 3:11pm EDT when the Moon and Neptune square. This can cause being misguided or deceived so don’t take things at face value.
