“The definition of brilliance is redoing failures different each time and expecting successful results.” Carl Henegan


With intellectual Mercury squaring experimental Uranus today (3:48 pm EST), we’re perhaps learning to keep more of an open mind now on things, instead of doling out judgment. The late Frank Zappa, the originator of radical rock during the 60s, once likened the mind to a parachute and said that, “It doesn’t work, if it is not open.”

Since Uranus is also linked with genius, originality, and flashes of intuition, we may want to keep a notepad handy and jot down any insights or messages that suddenly bubble up into our awareness. Too, engaging in brainstorming may be an especially worthwhile pastime today. On the shadow side, Mercury-Uranus is sometimes linked with mental restlessness or an inability to concentrate, so if we’re feeling this way, we may want to postpone activities that call for a prolonged focus.

Because Mercury also governs news and communications, often when it is aligned with unpredictable Uranus, we hear some news that takes us a bit by surprise. Uranus also symbolizes those who hold more radical beliefs or take issue with the status quo, which can include persons who are militants, revolutionaries, and anarchists. Scientists, astronomers, aviators, inventors, and computer geeks also fall under the domain of this planet. Uranus also rules the internet and aircraft/spacecraft. BTW, the recent space station repairs were carried out when pioneering Mars was transiting opposite Uranus.

Early this afternoon (12:37 pm EST), the Moon’s entrance into forward-thinking Sagittarius also serves to further prime us for learning and new adventure.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss

How might you be more open-minded today?
