“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” Theodore Roosevelt.

Moon enters practical Capricorn (6 am EDT).  We want to feel useful and know that our actions are making a difference.  When we are doing what we love, we naturally feel purposeful. Today, is a good day to channel a passion of ours into a meaningful achievement or activity.

Thought-keeper Mercury is also harmoniously aligned (trine) to secretive Pluto.   We are able to penetrate and tap into life’s deepest mysteries and solve a mystery or two in the process. What alluded us before, is now made crystal clear.

“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” Albert Einstein.

We are well-advised to stick with things today. To focus our energies for maximum impact. Make it a day of discovery (Pluto) and purpose (Capricorn).

In the News:

The tragedy of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to unfold.

Checking back to the Exxon Valdez oil spill on March 24, 1989 we find that Saturn and Neptune were both conjunct in Capricorn then. Neptune rules the sea and oil. Saturn represents trials and tribulations. It also speaks to us about the importance of owning up to our duties and responsibilities.

Today, interestingly enough, we have Saturn and Neptune together again.  This time Saturn is in perfecting, refining Virgo exactly quinqunx to Neptune in scientific Aquarius.

Saturn is clearly showing us again that we have not been doing right by the sea and harvesting her precious bounty for our practical use, and we are suffering the consequences as a result. Saturn is always keen to point out to us the folly of our ways.

Saturn also represents the principle of conservation and the wise use of our resources. Maybe this quinqunx influence will usher in wiser stewardship practices (Virgo) and will teach us to better use our technological know-how (Aquarius) to live more judiciously in the future?

Right before Chiron entered Pisces, I blogged that I thought its passage here would be to educate us more fully in our awareness of  our finite oil and water resources.  With this event in the Gulf of Mexico unfolding simultaneously with Chiron’s entrance into Pisces, I am more convinced than ever of this.

It wasn’t the Exxon Valdez captain’s driving that caused the Alaskan oil spill.  It was yours. – Greenpeace advertisement, New York Times, 25 February 1990.
