“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” Rumi



As of this writing, Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” video – the Official Music Version” of it on YouTube – has received over 593 million views since its original publication date of November 21 2013! Amazing, isn’t it? While I’m no music or video critic, I like to think that one of the main reasons for the song’s epic popularity with the collective (apart from the superb video, itself, which was reportedly the “real catalyst” that launched the song into the stratosphere) is because both the lyrics and melody are something that seem to deeply resonate with nearly all of us on a ‘soul level.’ To paraphrase Rumi a bit: we can’t help but feel a river moving through us, a joy, when we listen to the upbeat words and rhythm of this masterful piece of work. Pharrell is also on record as saying that he thinks “all music is a gift from God.” While I’m not sure if I would make a blanket statement like that, on the topic, I do believe that “Happy” originated from some zenith location inhabited by the gods. Pharrell, by the way, is a “pioneering” Aries with his Sun in a tight, one-degree conjunction with “lovable” Venus, an influence that tends to make a person very likable. Also, often an artist, in some regard.

Too, it appears that the “happy” Leo Moon, today, is perhaps brilliantly plotting in her own stellar manner to give Pharrell a real run for his money now, by lighting up the sky above with a spectacular “Grand Fire Trine” involving Saturn, Mars, Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter. This is a highly creative configuration that potentially allows us to tap more effortlessly into our own river of ‘soulful resources,’ especially our reservoir of talent, or individual gifted-ness, with Leo being the sign of the entertainer, the producer.

This “invigorating” Grand Trine is also setting the stage for tomorrow morning’s exact, 120-degree alignment between “propitious” Jupiter in Leo and “unexpected” Uranus in Aries – an aspect often associated with “rare opportunities” suddenly descending upon our doorstep. “Let me tell ya. You gotta pay attention to signs. When life reaches out with a moment like this it’s a sin if you don’t reach back… I’m telling you.” Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

“The world was simply and sheerly divided into ‘the aware’, those who had the experience of being vessels of the divine, and a great mass of ‘the unaware’, ‘the unmusical’, ‘the unattuned.” Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Enjoy your Monday! Be happy! 🙂
