Today’s energies are complicated but in largely happy ways. Mercury’s sextile to Saturn very early today favors practical thoughts, discussions, and plans. It’s generally a time for speaking more spontaneously and directly with Mercury in Sagittarius.
However, with today’s Mercury-Saturn transit, it’s easier to direct our mental energy into something constructive. This transit helps ground our thinking and expectations. We seek to be mentally prepared, desiring more order and organization in our lives.
The Sun-Chiron trine this morning encourages a holistic approach to problem-solving. There can be opportunities to learn, grow, and improve, particularly through spontaneity, self-assertion, and courage. With less concern about who’s right or wrong, we’re open to learning and growing. Our egos don’t get in the way, helping us make real progress. Fortunately, we’re putting our respect in the right places. The chance to find a sense of purpose or a “mission” can arise now, increasing our confidence.
The Sun also harmonizes with Saturn, supporting our efforts to discipline ourselves to bring more purpose and practicality to our lives. This is a time of increased self-awareness that leads to realistic plans and goals. Taking into account practical considerations and time/energy limitations makes for better planning.
Yet another supportive transit occurs today: Venus sextile Neptune. This influence encourages us to open up and embrace loving, non-possessive feelings. We’re finding the best in people and our relationships or pleasures. We approach one another more gently and sensitively than usual with this transit. We are inclined to see the spiritual dimensions of our relationships and to treat others with increased compassion.
Mercury’s semi-square to Pluto adds a certain edge to our thinking as the day advances. This transit can generate some tension or mental distress and worry. We’re inclined to obsess over an issue that we can’t control. If we harness the energy and use it for good, we can develop strategies to get to the bottom of a matter. (by Cafe Astrology)
