Do you need to negotiate or finalize any business dealings? Today’s conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter should be favorable for that, offering both the broad view and an unusual level of shrewdness and depth of understanding. If you need to dive deep into any subject matter, this astrology should let you slide right in.
Today’s move of Mercury into Scorpio puts the planet of the mind and communication into a very intuitive sign. But that also comes with a reminder to use carefully what you intuit, perceive or dig up — for the highest good of all. Mercury in Scorpio can get secretive at one extreme, and sharp or critical at the other extreme.
Today the Sun, Saturn and Eris all make contact with one another. This could draw attention to the similarities between apparently different social pressures, such as to conform versus to perform. That is, whether you’re being asked to exaggerate or show off certain qualities, or to suppress them, it comes to the same thing.
Today when Venus enters Libra — the sign of relationships and balance — it opposes the object Salacia in Aries. Although oppositions are often confrontations, they can also be negotiations — or even dances. In myth, Salacia was a goddess of calm seas who, after hiding, willingly married Neptune — after he sent a dolphin to speak to her on his behalf.
Last quarter Moons are usually considered a time of wrapping up. This is when the last burst of action takes place before the last loose ends are tied, in preparation for the new cycle to begin. Accompanying aspects involving Mars suggest that there is an unusually generous opportunity, in particular, to undo or redo something that didn’t pan out as expected.
