Are you ready to increase your productivity quotient by several degrees? The catalyst is the largest asteroid Ceres — recently deemed a dwarf planet by the astronomical heads-of-state — entering the last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn (7:25AM). Ceres hasn’t been in Capricorn for approximately 3.5 years and now has a chance to beef up your business plans and career aims.
Take a time-out from the rat race as the Moon opposes Mars (9:06AM). This often caustic polarity can ruffle feathers of dear ones, associates, and friends. Use words to heal — not harm. Give your egocentric needs a rest. Adding a nuanced trickery to this Moon-Mars liaison is that it jump-starts a 5+ hour void lunar cycle that continues in force until 2:59PM when the Moon enters earthy, meticulous Virgo. Keep a low profile during the void-of-course time-span while you complete odds and ends.
Once the Moon transits Virgo, take out your portable microscope to examine important papers and legal documents with a fine-tooth comb. Eliminate non-essentials from your home and work space. Organization and efficiency are in; disorder and chaos are out.
Be prepared for a roughhouse experience over the next three days as Mars in Aquarius slides into the midpoint between shock-inducer Uranus and master-of-extremes Pluto while other planetary high jinks wreak potential havoc across the globe.
