Written in the Planets

Mercury is in late Cancer, preparing to enter Leo tomorrow. It is nearing the end of its post-retrograde ‘shadow’ or ‘echo’ phase. But before it clears that territory, or even clears the sign Cancer, it makes a square today to the asteroid Rhadamanthus in Libra. In myth, Rhadamanthus was a king whom Zeus later made the judge of souls in the underworld.

You might consider today which of your emotional reactions needs to be brought into better integrity — especially regarding anything that came into focus during the retrograde. Another interpretation of this aspect could be a need to bring greater empathy to your judgments, whether of self or others. Have you been judging your feelings, thoughts, or responses — or your expectations of how others might respond to your sensitivities — harshly? We’re all human, and our failings come with the territory. It’s okay to be generous with your empathy; it’s also okay to know when enough is enough.

Meanwhile, Jupiter stations direct in Sagittarius tomorrow. You can read more about that in yesterday’s Written in the Planets or in this article here.
