We have some very promising, hopeful energy around to jumpstart our Monday!
One biggie: Winged Messenger Mercury flits into optimistic Sagittarius today (4:41 am), an enthusiastic fire sign, where it will stay until December 28th.
This upbeat placement for Mercury is excellent for expanding our perspectives, for helping us take a more global view of things, for igniting our curiosity.
We also tend to gravitate now towards conversations, or other forms of communication, in which we are able to freely express our beliefs or personal philosophy. We are also more interested in searching for the truth now, as we see or understand it.
Overall, Mercury in Sagittarius is excellent for teaching, learning new things, taking motivational courses or perhaps even doing some motivational speaking, if we’re so inclined. It might also be a fun time to start a blog or get involved with publishing or marketing, as Mercury in this sign is quite a promoter.
On the shadow side, Mercury in Sadge tends to minimize details in favor of the big picture or helicopter view (intellectual Mercury is in its detriment in Sagittarius, which is opposite Gemini, the sign that it rules). It is also sometimes associated with narrow-mindedness, even extremism, in the sense we can believe we have a monopoly on the truth.
“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.” Flannery O’Connor.
Anyway… after having thinker Mercury in emotionally intense, darker-in-orientation Scorpio for the last two months, in which there was also a focus on understanding and healing from the past, Mercury’s ingress into brighter, futuristic Sadge should be a very nice, welcome change for us and a perfect tie in for the more hopeful spirit of the holidays.
We also have the waxing Moon in grounded Taurus, all day, the sign of its exaltation. When Luna is here we are wanting to create more of a feeling of abundance or sense of permanence in our life. Archetypally, the Taurus Moon symbolizes The Builder.
It is also a great time to engage in activities that indulge our senses, or that brings us into our bodies.
The Moon is also forming several positive aspects today to Neptune (imagination), Venus (love), Saturn (structure), and Pluto (rejuvenation). So the energy is really excellent now for our being able to act in a steadfast, agreeable manner to further our goals.
It is also a great sign for building new habits or daily practices, especially in its waxing phase. The Taurus Moon also favors taking care of business or material concerns.
Numerologically, the 9th day of the month is associated with wisdom and responsibility. It can also inspire humanitarian efforts.
