Home and professional interests can merge in a favorable way due to Ceres forming an inspirational, 72-degree liaison with Saturn (1:48AM). Be receptive to ingenious ideas during an Inferior Conjunction of the Sun and Mercury retrograde (6:06AM at 24 degrees of Capricorn).
This is actually an Earth-Mercury-Sun line-up in the solar system in which Mercury is close to the Earth. The eminent astrologers Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar referred to this heavenly alignment as a New Mercury — when eager human minds could grab ahold of cosmic seed-ideas and eventually turn that divine energy into earthly creations that promote societal advancement across the board.
While a supportive, 60-degree alliance between the Moon in Pisces and the Sun in Capricorn (8:32AM) can increase physical-emotional vitality, this Moon-Sun contact also begins a 10 hour void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 6:49PM. Even though the Moon is out of sorts while in void mode, Mercury makes another sterling connection today via a harmonious trine to mind-expanding Jupiter (6:16PM).
Once the Moon enters fiery Aries (6:49PM), it is wise to enhance your leadership credentials and be more assertive even though a rising tide of temporary confusion can appear as Ceres forms an off-kilter, 150-degree tie to the Mean Lunar Node (9:55PM) while Mercury forms a caustic, 45-degree link to Neptune (10:32PM).
