Thursday September 22, 2016 -
There is a big shift in energy today starting with the thing we have all been waiting for: Mercury stations direct at 1:31 AM! I expect a celebration! Honestly I think of Mercury retrograde as more of a minor annoyance than of anything momentous but it still is always a relief to get it moving in forward motion again! Remember that when a planet stations is appears to stand still in the sky before it starts actually gaining any momentum so it will take a few days to work the bugs out of this retrograde. And also remember that we will remain in the “shadow” of Mercury retrograde until about October 7 so it may feel like we are covering some familiar ground during the next few weeks but hey, such is life! And often we get things right this second time around.
The moon makes a square to Mercury at 2:38 AM which is usually felt as a disconnect between the head and the heart. Not an unusual occurrence but not comfortable, either. What the heart wants the head often does not understand.
In what is the best news of the day, in my opinion, is the sun entering Libra at 10:22 AM. This is the autumnal equinox. The night and day are of equal length. There is a sense of balance in nature that is reflected in the sign of Libra whose symbol is the scales. Libra is the best sign for seeing both sides of an issue which is why they are known as the diplomat of the zodiac. Since Venus is the ruler of Libra it is also rather artistic and aware of both appearances as well as aesthetics.
The moon makes a soft sextile to Uranus at 5:11 PM giving us a little boost in our mood. This aspect between the moon and Uranus is both upbeat and refreshing and it is a welcome feeling with stationary Merucry slowing everything down in the background.
For the final aspect today the moon opposes Mars which peaks at 11:53 PM. This can give us a feeling of restlessness and can even lead to an argument if we let things get out of hand. If you can't sleep try doing something productive for a little bit instead of taking your temper out of those around you,
The recommended gemstone for today is amethyst which helps give us patience when dealing with delays.
The essential oil to use today is geranium which assists us in recognizing the beauty that already exists all around us.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
