It would be great to report that with Mercury in a heightened mode of expression that the universe is at your beck and call. The fleet-footed Messenger of the Gods planet made two powerful alignments yesterday and now Mercury forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link to its higher-octave planet, lightning-like Uranus (2:05AM), trines healing-maestro Chiron in water signs (2:58AM), makes a potentially frictional contra-parallel with giant Jupiter (2:14PM), and completes today’s quartet by squaring emotional-empowerment expert Juno (3:42PM). Because an 8-hour void lunar cycle in Virgo — from 3:12AM to 11:31AM — is also evoking a sense of uncertainty in the psychic atmosphere, gaining solid traction across the board may not be a slam-dunk. Patience is a cardinal and cosmic virtue under these wavering conditions.
Once the Moon skips off happily into airy, affable Libra (11:31AM), the favorable lunar state may provide a greater opportunity to improve the quality of your primary partnerships — particularly with the added benefit coming from a constructive, 60-degree rapport between the Moon and Venus (2:20PM). Watch out for topsy-turvy situations and surprises coming out from left field a few hours later when Pallas makes an off-kilter, 150-degree tie to Uranus (5:20PM).
Strategy sessions concerning investment planning look promising tonight — courtesy of a trine between Pallas and Chiron (9:12PM) followed by another trine linking Vesta with Jupiter (11:12PM). Make as much progress as you can this evening since the annual, often restrictive Sun-Saturn conjunction happens early tomorrow (12:51AM).
