“Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” Isaac Asimov
Intellectual Mercury trining optimistic Jupiter today (at 10:36 am) can ideally serve to broaden our perspectives as we are potentially more receptive at this time to sampling new information or at least toying around with new ideas, as expansive Jupiter symbolizes our ongoing search for higher meaning and purpose. Too, with Mercury still deposited in down-to-earth Taurus and Jupiter ensconced in professionally ambitious Capricorn, we may be particularly interested now in scoping out fresh ways to solidify our footing in the material world. Generally, Mercury-Jupiter is also excellent for all types of discussions or for drafting agreements or contracts, especially since there is normally more of a willingness now to bend or give a little in order to make things work.
The illuminating Sun in Taurus is also sextiling transcendent Neptune in Pisces, this afternoon (at 12:16 pm). This is a more subtle aspect that can nudge us to move beyond the realm of our everyday ego concerns or the mundane, to seek out something that speaks to the needs of our Soul or Spirit. It is an energy associated with such things as compassion, acts of kindness, and charitable giving. Archetypally, Neptune, known as the Great Dissolver, aims to unify or to remove the perceived boundaries or barriers that exist between us. Also, perhaps, a real-world example of Neptune’s influence: Two days ago, on May 8th, was the 75th anniversary of V-E Day, marking the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allied forces, ending World War II in Europe. Now, if we go back in time to see what was occurring astrologically on May 8, 1945, we find that assertive Mars in Aries (which rules war and the military) was exactly opposite Neptune, which was also in the diplomatic sign of Libra. Neptune here presumably helping to dissolve/defuse/dismantle the Martian aggression urge, ultimately paving the way for the prospect of peace again. Neptune is often a dominant factor in peace agreements or acts of surrender.
“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” Thich Nhat Hanh
