Building that foundation
Mars in Virgo trine Saturn in Capricorn is an influence I think most people will be incredibly grateful. This is active (Mars) and stabilizing (Saturn) at the same time. We feel like we can overcome (Mars) our challenges (Saturn) and we see practical ways (Saturn) in which to do so. Working (Mars) toward our goals (Saturn) feels really, really good. There is a sense of satisfaction that runs deep in accomplishment, but even moving in that direction feels great, too. If you aren’t feeling that sense of satisfaction, it's important to look at whether or not what you are working on is truly important to you. Saturn asks us to simplify our lives in a manner that supports our lives.

Dream a Little Dream of Me
Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces giving us this really strange feeling today. Am I living in the dream world right now or am I waiting at the bus stop? Or washing dishes? Or making a sandwich? Who is the real me? Ideally (Neptune) we will infuse our day to day like (Mercury in Virgo) with our dreams and aspirations (Neptune). In a less than ideal setting though we might feel like our lives have lost all magic and luster and that we can’t take stapling another 25 packets together. If this is you use that imagination to bolster the magic once again … it’s up to you to bring the magic (Neptune) into your daily life (Mercury in Virgo), not the other way around.

Intensity Now: Take a Deep Breath
It’s a crazy day in the sky. Early morning we have Mercury square Jupiter creating “big thinking” but in a manner that probably feeds our neuroses. Then later in the day we have Sun trine Saturn which is about hard work and focus and goal setting. About taking that step today to lead you up the mountain of your personal goals tomorrow. And finally we have Venus trine Pluto giving us a healthy dose of the shadow into our already overworked psyche today. Some of these aspects are supportive but when we are being pulled in so many different directions our head might start spinning. Paradigm shift, ex-boyfriend, career, self-criticism, daily workout, latest infatuation, on and on and on. Remember that if you do get overwhelmed that calm is just three deep breaths away.

Focus Please. Focus Damn It!
Mercury in Virgo makes an excellent trine to Saturn in Capricorn today, expanding our sense of duty and daily work commitments. Mercury likes to multitask but Saturn will have none of it. He demands that we pay attention to the task at hand. And I don’t mean the to do list in front of you, I mean the long term goals set for you to create a more secure foundation. Things like “get out of debt” or “graduate from law school” or “finish business plan and present to funders”. The big picture and the little picture merge today, and Saturn asks that you do tasks that actually help bring you closer to these long term goals instead of wasting time like you usually do, haha. That’s me laughing, not Saturn. Everyone wastes time in Saturn’s eyes, so don’t take it too personally, but still, get to work!

If you don’t have a job to do or a goal at hand you are going to feel out of sorts today. The Sun and Mars conjoin in Virgo giving us a ton of energy to take care of business, whether that’s tackling a hike or a long overdue project. Any sort of physical activity today is welcome and highly recommended. You should feel stamina and the desire to move today, even if it’s not your normal habit. And if it’s not your normal habit this would be a great day to embark upon a new plan on improving your health and fitness through physical activity. For those of us who have the day off, let’s enjoy it by exploring nature in an active, energetic manner!
