Take time to catch your breath as this day is equivalent to a wild roller-coaster ride. Surrounding Mercury’s switch to retrograde motion at 2 degrees of Aquarius (5:07AM) are a testy Mercury-Mars square (4:01AM) and Venus-Neptune square (6:34AM).
Many streams of life are in jarring mode rather than being supportive, and the Moon in forceful Scorpio chimes in by making a 13 hour void uncertainty cycle that starts at 9:49AM and lasts until Sagittarius Moon takes command (10:57PM). Adding to the potential mayhem is the annual Sun conjunction with underworld-ruling extremist Pluto at 16 degrees of Capricorn (7:29PM).
Regarding the shift into reverse by the Messenger of the Gods planet, all Mercury themes — communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as acts of apparent magic, sleight of hand, and theft — are being accentuated. Don’t fall prey to marketing strategies and sales pitches that aim at hoodwinking you to sign an agreement that will end with regret.
Breathe a sigh of relief once Sagittarius Moon enters the picture (10:57PM). While many of the potentially discordant vibrations will stay in effect on Wednesday, some of the build-up of psychic tensions will have dissipated and a couple of smiles, here and there, are eager to appear.
