If you made it through yesterday’s cosmic slugfest relatively unscathed, give yourself a row of virtual gold stars. Now you have another 24 hours to conquer with a very deft touch since the universe is going all in right now with a mega-dose of celestial madness.
First of all, keep in mind that several of Saturday’s difficult sky configurations are still on the astro-psychic radar screen — only more undercover. Now Venus forming a supportive, 60-degree link with healing maestro Chiron (2:04AM) followed 2+ hours later by the Moon in Sagittarius forming a harmonious trine to buoyant and optimistic Jupiter in Leo (4:36AM) makes it seem that all is well, but this 120-degree contact also begins a long void lunar uncertainty cycle that lasts until 5:26PM (when the Moon enters Capricorn). Ceres gets into the act, too, by converging with the Moon (5:00AM) — adding another note of supposed calm and productivity. Then a few hours later, the testing of humanity begins in earnest as Mercury forms a potentially abrasive, 135-degree tie with Jupiter (11:03AM), Uranus halts its recent retrograde motion at 13 degrees of Aries (2:46PM) to begin a forward-moving cycle that lasts until July 26, 2015, the Sun switch its allegiance from fiery Sagittarius to earthy Capricorn (3:04PM), and the New Moon materializes 2+ hours after that (5:37PM and energizing 1 degree of Capricorn).
A station of Uranus — the key planet of shocks, surprises, anarchy, rebellion, revolution, genius, intuition, high-technology, jokers, wild cards, out-of-the-box thinking and behavior, the multi-media, the nervous system, anxiety, breakthroughs in consciousness or breakdowns — is not exactly compatible with the Sun and Moon striding forcefully into Capricorn (the key sign of the zodiac ruled over by Saturn). Therefore, this sacred turning point of the year — the solstice, when the Sun appears to stand still in its vertical arc — is receiving an unusually high injection of adversarial energies (represented by play-by-the-rules Saturn and always-unpredictable Uranus).
Do your best to pursue your objectives today with self-confidence and a calm demeanor. Like the Little Engine That Could, keep affirming the mantra of I think I can.
