Today (especially the first half) is excellent for putting on our stylish thinking caps and doing some serious planning, especially engaging in long-term planning for our future. This is because Mercury, in precise Virgo (the planet that shows how we think, reason or make sense of things), is forming a flowing trine to structuring Saturn Rx in utilitarian Capricorn (Saturn is the planet that provides us with a reality check; it also represents our limits and capabilities).
In general, Mercury trining Saturn helps foster practical, more efficient ways of thinking, communicating, and relating. Also, due to the more cautious nature of Saturn, we are more likely now to want to stick with the tried-and-true, or what has, otherwise, already been tested and shown to be reliable.
Later in the day, meanwhile, the First Quarter Moon in “adventurous” Sagittarius (11:10 pm), can find us more than a little willing, again, to experiment, or to throw caution to the wind, which is something that can potentially cause us a bit of inner angst or discord as the transiting Virgo planetary stellium now would much prefer that everything be neatly tied up and packaged with a nice bow on top. 🙂 On the other hand, the positive side to this lunar phase is that it’s showing us that we’re continually wanting to grow and become more of who we are, and that’s always a good thing!
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem
Activities favored today: Studying more serious disciplines such as math, science, architecture, or engineering; having serious, practical discussions with established authority figures or persons in power; organizing one’s workspace or work duties; having or scheduling a hearing test or a bone-density test; retirement planning; budget planning.

Born on This Day: American comedian and stand-up actor, Bob Newhart, known for his deadpan humor, turns 90 years old today.
(Newhart, a Virgo Sun, has Mercury exactly conjunct Mars in pleasing, diplomatic Libra. Mercury conjunct Mars generally produces a great deal of mental energy and mental alertness or quickness. Both of these planets in Newhart’s chart are also opposite spontaneous, irreverent Uranus, the planet of genius and inventiveness, in pioneering Aries.)
“I don’t like country music, but I don’t mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means ‘put down’.” Bob Newhart 🙂
Hope it’s a good one!
