“Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.” Roger Ebert.

Our emotions seem to be riding a wave of intensity today as the Moon voyages through passionate, psychic Scorpio.  We also may be able to unravel or solve a mystery or two with Mercury’s sextile to penetrating Pluto, purveyor of all things secret.

Also keep an eye on the news regarding corruption and cover-up stories.  We had a little of this on Wednesday already.  Mercury Pluto often outs those who have been violating the public trust and or accepting bribes.

Venus’s conjunction to Uranus continues to tempt us to want to venture into unchartered waters romantically. We’re more attracted to the unusual today and rather bored with the familiar.

Noteworthy event on history on this day: On March 4, 1966  an interview with Beatle John Lennon was printed in the London Evening Standard that had him quoted as saying: “We’re more popular than Jesus now,” meaning that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.

That remark and also inaccurate accounts of it would eventually set off a firestorm of controversy for the Beatles, particularly among some Christians in the southern portion of the United States. Beatles music was even banned for a time from radio stations in the south and young people had bonfires to burn their Beatles’s records.

Interestingly, in John’s horoscope for March 4, 1966, he had the transiting Mars in Pisces exactly opposite his natal Neptune in Virgo. Mars rules our assertive urge and is very spontaneous in expression. Neptune meanwhile rules our spiritual urge or faith.  John said later that he was really just stating what he thought was a simple fact about the Beatles influence on people and that he meant nothing irreverant about it.  It’s interesting though how his remark set off a flurry of angry sentiment against the Beatles from mainly persons who identified themselves as Christians.

Peace and love, everyone.  Enjoy your day!
