It may seem — periodically — that the universe is actually trying to jostle your senses, mess with your vision quest, and deny you achievements via strange accumulations of discordant sky patterns. The truth is that it really is a random potpourri of celestial alignments that sometimes tips the scales from sustaining harmony to amplifying dissonance. Most days will have a fairly balanced number of favorable and challenging aspects mixed together, and it will be up to you to make progress during the positive times and be more reserved during the difficult times. Today the mixture is easy to see as the Moon in Aquarius places a renewed emphasis on partaking in group projects, team sports, community activities, volunteer efforts, and global causes close to your heart and philosophy of life.
Giving you a notable boost — artistically and socially — is Venus parallel Mars (6:47AM) while almost exactly two hours later psychic storm warnings are posted as Saturn makes a testy, provocative 45-degree link to Pluto (8:48AM). If you can recover quickly from this turn of events, then the Moon forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile to Venus (10:39AM) brings good cheer back into artistic and social affairs while a trine from Ceres to Uranus in fire signs (2:40PM) signals an opportunity to be very productive in your main fields of expertise.
Mercury adds a note of buoyancy and good fortune by entering Sagittarius (6:27PM) — a goal-oriented, literary, and higher-learning cycle that lasts until December 16. Party on tonight and vanquish any dour tendencies left over from this morning’s Saturn-Pluto scuffle. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.
