Compared to yesterday’s onslaught of intensity by the universe, today is fairly tame. Nonetheless, you need to be on your toes as many of Saturday’s discordant alignments remain in effect — only discharging their celestial shenanigans below the surface of consciousness. After all — as mentioned many times before in this cosmic calendar — solar and planetary aspects on any given day don’t just immediately disappear on the next day. Instead, they stay influential, but in a less severe manner of expression.
Meanwhile, you need to be ready to deal with parental or familial issues since Ceres makes a fairly rare conjunction with Saturn in the fixed-power sign of Scorpio (1:03AM). Avoid falling into a web of self-doubts and pessimistic thinking. Utilize the Moon’s leaving void mode in Aquarius by entering compassionate and empathic Pisces (2:25AM) as a way out of any recent morasses of your own making.
Reading, writing, and research are on center stage as the Moon trines Mercury in water signs (6:07AM). Shortly thereafter, healing forces are on the march due to Venus forging a parallel link to Chiron (6:58AM). Most parallel configurations — calculated in degrees north or south of the great circle of the Celestial Equator rather than the zodiacal Ecliptic — are similar in nature to conjunctions in the zodiac. Therefore, this merger of Venus and Chiron can equate with having a soothing holistic healing treatment that you find enjoyable and vitality-enhancing. Experiment with a digital or video camera as the Moon makes its monthly union with Neptune (10:57AM). Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks or haiku.
Be ready to deal with surprises coming out of left field or shocks to the system later on when the Sun and Uranus clash via a contra-parallel formation (11:02PM). Strive toward making breakthroughs in higher consciousness rather than suffering through anxiety-producing breakdowns. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.
